Lattice Ballerina Navy – love the pineapple prints! 

Looks are not all there is to these flops – they’re laced with the brand’s signature Supercomff Tech, which makes the shoes lightweight and diffuses areas of high pressure, making them comfy to wear all day long.

Piaget Style Icon – Jackie Kennedy

She was a media darling and one of the most photographed ladies in America in the 1960s. Even today, her influence resonates through in modern fashion and pop culture. She gave us the signature sleeveless A-line dresses, above the elbow gloves, low heel pumps, clean cut suits with skirt hem to the middle of the knee, and pillbox hats. I’m talking about Jacqueline Onassis Kennedy, First Lady, or Jackie as she is fondly known among the masses.

Pablo Larrain’s latest feature film, Jackie, offers a new take on this well-loved American cultural and style icon. Starring Natalie Portman, the movie is a blend of fiction and nonfiction, an unflinching portrait of a woman in the public eye as the wife of one of America’s most well-known presidents, John F Kennedy. The story follows the last four days in Jackie’s life before the assassination of her husband.

The character is well known for her elegant fashion and accessories, including some fine time pieces. In the film, she will be wearing her original gold Piaget watch and other jewelry pieces. Here’s a look at the watch, re-released to coincide with the film:

Featuring an oval jade dial set with diamonds and green tourmalines, the watch is fitted with a supple fabric-like bracelet made from gold mesh – highlighting the brand’s fine goldsmithing techniques and beautiful coloured stones. There are also two other versions, one in blue and other in red.

New Year Coordi

I haven’t posted a coordi in a long time, haven’t I? 

If you’ve read some of my previous posts, you’ll know that I gained a lot of weight this past two years, after I graduated from uni and started working. I recently lost half the weight, but there’s still halfway to go and I’m not getting any younger –  which means that I’ll have to work even harder to get my fitness level up to par again.

Along the way, I’ve learnt to change my views about my body and my self in general. Before this, I kept beating myself up for being ‘fat’, as some of my family and friends called me – I don’t blame them; they are thin and the Southeast Asian community in general has a horrible habit of fat shaming ingrained into society. At the same time, I KNEW I was fat due to my own unhealthy eating habits, lack of exercise, stress and deep seated issues which I had to face. I had been stuffing myself to ease the depression and emotional pain… and until I faced them head on, I would just continue down this spiral of self loathing and unhealthy bingeing.

So I did something. And today, there are results. I am happy, but I’m even happier knowing that if I keep on this right track, I’ll be at my peak health and fitness in no time.

Now that I’m feeling much more confident about myself, allow me some vanity. I mean, I’m not gonna be in my 20s for long, you know – and they do say this is the best you’ll ever look in your entire life.

I went shopping after work today at Nu Sentral in KL, where they have a H&M, which is my favourite outlet for their nice designs and affordable clothing. The cutting suits me well too because many stalls that sell free size clothing are made for extremely petite (read: XXS or XS sized) women – and you can definitely tell from my frame that I am not 😀

(Above) My work outfit : The blazer from Primark (13£) and skirt from Padini were bought a long time ago. Just a year ago I couldn’t fit into them at all, but I’m happy to say I can wear them again! Good thing I didn’t throw them away. Grey turtleneck and boots from H&M.

Please excuse the vanity 🙂

I liked all of the items, but they were expensive so I had to choose carefully to stay within budget lol.

So finally, this is the look I chose for the New Year.

I know, we’re supposed to wear red for Chinese New Year, but it’s a good thing my fam doesn’t really care lol.

I love the owl print shirt, it’s breezy and cool and has an oriental look. The slim fitting pants were also a steal at RM49.90.
