Plus Style On-the-Go #03: Mesh bomber jacket

Leave a reply

It’s lunch time so let’s make this post a quick one!

I have an obsession over cool and sometimes impractical jackets. I love browsing through my favourite clothing stores for pieces that would make head turns and have them say, how do you wear that in this weather? Ahah – to be honest I can’t, I’m sweating like a pig inside but I just gotta put this on, don’t I?! I love jackets in colours that would allow me to stand out in the crowd or one that is too white that’d make people say, ‘Keeping that off stains must be real hard’.

Introducing… Plus Style On-the-Go: Modest nautical

Leave a reply

My strategy to constant updating of the blog now is going to be simple: I’m going to continuously microblog, mostly from my phone and putting words together about my daily look or OOTD. I’m going to call this new blog content ‘Plus Style On-the-Go’ – sharing my plus size style taken and written while I’m, well… on-the-go. Expect short and simple posting (except for this one, obviously) of me being your fat hijabi.

Goodbye Syawal: 5 things I learned about myself this Raya season

Leave a reply

Today we bid adieu to Syawal, to the last day in the month of celebration in the Muslim calendar. And if you are in Malaysia, you probably be visiting a Raya open house or two, stuffing your stomach with the best of (free) local food. Or you could spend this fine Saturday like me – alone, mostly getting a couple of tasks for work done in between walking around the cities, cafe hopping from one coffee place to another.

This is lighthearted post compared to my previous ones. It has no specific objective but to allow me the space and time off from the research I’m currently doing. It’s straight forward – as the subject suggests. Now let’s quickly draft this out.

Plus Size Style | Lazy Sunday Chic

Leave a reply

I was aiming for the lazy Sunday chic look which is pretty much… just another lazy Sunday chic look. I translated the whole idea into a loose-fitting style that is definitely a breather as compared to my usual fitted/skinny jeans look for my first breakfast session with the amazing Sarah Rostam.

Happy 6th Birthday, Trendy Confessions!

Leave a reply

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.

Plus Size Style | A rambling that actually has nothing to do with this style post

Leave a reply

I’m gonna begin with a rambling of sort. A story, quick one.

A friend asked me if I’m ever concern about the look on my resume with me jumping around jobs from one to another in less than a year – particularly in 2013, with two new jobs in the same year – trying to figure out what I actually wanna do in life.

For once I choose not to answer. She has a point, no doubt. Disloyalty is the one thing those peeps over at HR particularly hate, no matter how good you think you are. And 2013 saw me at my lowest, career-wise, and those couple of facts could shatter my opportunity in future and why shouldn’t I be afraid, no?
