It was a couple of years ago when I first came across Trendy Confessions‘ blog-shop and I couldn’t help but rejoiced over the idea of a Klang Valley-based independent plus size line, run by my fellow country-women, selling stylish plus size clothing for the underserved plus size ladies. At that moment, I find Trendy Confessions’ co-founders and sisters, Fong Jiar Yi and Fong Jiar Hwei a godsend to us and I still do, considering available shopping options for the stylish in us plus sizers are those UK brands selling sometimes poor quality clothing at high-street prices.
Fast forward years later, Trendy Confessions still runs strong. Even stronger, I must say. They ditched their blog-shop website and became a lot more customer friendly and sophisticated through an e-commerce platform. They began designing their own clothes and expanding their sizing options too. And as much as they evolve, I began noticing similar evolvement in the scene too. Malaysian plus size girls, though not many, slowly begins to embrace their body and learn the trade of personal style.
So when I learned and was invited to the 6th anniversary of my favourite Malaysian plus size online clothing store, I knew I had to make an effort to show my support physically. I’m sure by now, most of my readers are somewhat informed about how occupied I am with work hence the inactive blog these past two-three months, but knowing Trendy Confessions turning 6 feels like an achievement worth celebrating together. 6 is a number of achievement and after 6 years, they have achieved and grow so much as an entity with a mission and I couldn’t help but feeling extremely happy and proud of them.
To my favourite girls at Trendy Confessions, the Fong sisters: Happy 6th Birthday! I am so happy and proud of you girls and thank you so much for the “modelling” opportunities given to me before, am so honoured to be a part of such a great independent entity like Trendy Confessions. I look forward to a bigger party when you girls reach that 10th mark. Keep it gorgeous and fabulous, ladies.
The best part about the party? Sneak peak and chance to pick Trendy Confessions’ new arrivals. These are not online yet, maybe next week? (Not too sure) But tell you what, they have some of my favourite pieces!
Here’s my favourite piece. A tartan dress with gold detailing on the waist – just the much needed edgy piece I’ve been looking for. But sadly I couldn’t get in them.
So what did I end up getting?
Now here’s the thing about me these days and this picture explains it best. My style now is pretty monotonous and it has been like this for the past two years hence these picks of black skinny jeans (such great quality skinny, you better grab it!), the striped midi-skirt and that awesome looking patterned jacket, also in black and white!
