Fake bag discourse

Posted by on Aug 6, 2012 in All posts, Beauty and Fashion | 1 comment

The handbag is globally a crucial and fetish accessory for the female. In Malaysia you will be confronted or spoiled with ‘fake’ handbag stalls everywhere you go. The desire to own a real brand bag is omnipresent, to pay designer prices not so much, consequently the presence of many designer stores in posh malls not only serve to satisfy the rich, but largely enhance and inspire the production of replicas. Endless fake bag vendors line markets, shopping arcades, streets and metro halls. I don’t think I have seen as many women with fake bags as in Malaysia, although the tendency to owe what you can’t afford is prevalent in most countries. The fake bag issue fascinates, as much as the accompanying polarised debate about its right to be. I was wondering about the motivation to buy fake brands and...

My fashion mall finds

Posted by on Jun 30, 2012 in All posts, Beauty and Fashion | 0 comments

After my great acclaim of Bangkok’s Platinum Fashion Mall here, I will share with you my precious finds – presented on myself :) I had three hours of shopping ecstasy fun at that vibrant clothing mall – all for a total of 2000 Baht – that is a worthwhile bargain. After the shopping spree I finished off with an impossible big ribbon hairdo, a one piece pink swim suit, an elephant(!) patterned mini dress, a Julia Roberts ‘Pretty women’ dotted dress (100% cotton), a marine dark blue business smart dress (also pure cotton), a dramatic bone shaped ring, a cute hummingbird flowers ring, an art nouveau dragon fly ring, some blue satin sandals and pink Vivienne Westwood plastic style shoes topped with a plastic red ribbon. It didn’t take long that I went back the other day and got...

All Malls and the Mall of All in Bangkok

Posted by on Jun 28, 2012 in All posts, Beauty and Fashion, Thailand | 0 comments

Bangkok is the city of malls. And I do not mean the limiting standard conglomeration of shops like Zara or H&M for the average consumer that tend to dominate the market in Germany and Poland. I also do not mean the common Tesco sort of supermarket mall. Bangkok is not limited to the Louis Vuitton, Prada, Armani and other haute couture overpriced bores but to a vivid spectrum of young, fresh and local designers and many many many specialized clothes, shoes, bags and accessory retailers I have never seen before. On top of an amazing variety of clothes, the malls are not mere clones of each other but each one has a very different variety of goodies and something special. There is the grand Siam Paragon Mall boasting a theatre (very progressive!), a cinema and IMAX, which you can...

Getting Japanese bangs and haircolour

Posted by on Jun 27, 2012 in All posts, Beauty and Fashion | 2 comments

Yesterday I felt like trying something different. To reinvent the way I look.  Since our trip to Japan,  the absolute trend setter,  I am under its fashion spell. If there is a concept of being at home with fashion, then this is what I felt like in Japan. Wearing clothes that you love without worrying about others’ criticism is the Japanese way to present new looks to the outside world. I lost myself to Harajuku show off fashionistas and I am nourishing a growing fascination for Japanese looks in their uttermost perfection, such as the schoolgirl Ko gal style or the anime inspired Kigurumin costumes or the predominant romantic casual Lolita look, which generates sweet looking Japanese females who masterfully mix the innocent cute with seduction. Long, brightly dyed, open hair (preferably with light waves), braids and bangs are...

Ministry of Brazilian body waxing experience in Bangkok

Posted by on Apr 10, 2012 in All posts, Beauty and Fashion, Thailand | 1 comment

‘Brazilian waxing changed my life’ is a quote that apparently Gwyneth Paltrow made, that was hugely displayed in the beauty salon’s room. I can’t remember the other quote from Sarah Jessica Parker but  I was honored to receive the same treatment as those celebrities. Trying to get a cheap waxing deal in Bangkok, at first I considered a Khao San Road backpackers deal but the fact that they reuse the wax by filtering already plugged hairs out, made me reconsider.In the end proximity was my guide and since we have the super convenient BTS Sky Train  next to our hotel, I went to the Siam Discovery Center Mall to get the most expensive waxing treatment I ever had :)The sky train goes directly to all three Siam malls, you can even walk right into one of the Siam malls...

I’m a material girl

Posted by on Jan 22, 2012 in All posts, Thoughts and Treasures | 0 comments

Oh boy (oh girl!), going through personal stuff and finding things that you forgot ever existed can suddenly become the most precious treasure, you’ll definitely wanna keep – for future generations, that will appreciate your collectors sentiment, obviously. You just know, that one day you will need it for sure :) It’s funny how easy it is to accumulate stuff that we don’t really need and how difficult it is to get rid of it afterwards. While we philosophize about material urges… Is it a trade that we are in control of or are we mere slaves of possession? Always wanting to get more, better, faster. Is that what drives us and lets us evolve so fast. I mean, in the end we are the most successful and unscrupulous species on the planet. So next time shopping you go...
