What do you get when you combine Anthropologie and Malaysia’s rising songstress together?

An awesome in-store show of course! Yuna will be performing in Seattle as part of Anthropologie’s Push Play Project this coming Friday. Wish we could be in Seattle right now to soak in the fun! Plus, Yuna’s impeccable fashion sense is really to envy for. Share with us some nice shots if you were lucky enough to catch the show!

N got a sweet break to have met and snapped a picture with her when she was in the city last year. She still looked great even after having had to perform earlier that day at Central Park. We think casual chic suits her personality, don’t you agree?

An article by Racked.com has triggers my interest in blogging about it. Trust us, we hardly post anything that is not original but this article by Tiffany Yannetta was so good that we find it inspirational and we would love for our readers to read about it.

Welcome to the latest edition of Working It, where Racked takes street style to the next level—the office. The litmus test of the true style-savvy is how she (or he) rocks a look on any old day to work. Forget the pedestrian khakis and button downs—these fashionable professionals take the office dress code to a whole other dimension. Quick, somebody call HR!

This week, we take you to the London headquarters of The Outnet, one of our favorite shopping sites that sells past-season goods and exclusive products from over 200 designers. Since their warehouse contains merchandise from Stella McCartney, Balmain, Alexander McQueen, Marni, and more, the team behind the site has endless inspiration to choose from for their daily work outfits.

Eve Thomas, Senior Fashion Editor: I like to mix and match luxe pieces with more casual items. I might pair a statement skirt with a classic tee, or a cocktail dress with a leather jacket. I’m also a big fan of color and print and tend to wear one bold piece with more neutrals items.

Style advice: Invest in the very best wardrobe basics you can afford. These will see you through for years to come. Every girl should own the following: a trench coat, a pencil skirt, a pair of cropped pants, a leather jacket, and a tailored blazer, plus a selection of T-shirts and cashmere knits in neutral colors. You can then update these every season with a handful of trend items. Be bold with your accessories. It’s the easiest way to update an outfit—a statement necklace will instantly transform a basic tee, and a pair of color-pop shoes will add interest to a LBD.

Style advice: Don’t hide yourself away in black because it’s safe or you have been told it is “slimming”. Color and print can add an edge to your style and give you a confidence you didn’t know you had. It’s always worth investing in accessories: A statement bag, pair of shoes or necklace will last you seasons. Do your research; see what is on offer, and invest wisely.

Mo White, Creative Director: My style is minimal, directional, and stylish, often with a ’60s or ’80s signature. I have a capsule wardrobe of great pieces that I love and can work with anything. I like to add a tough element to my look, whether that be a tailored jacket with a quirky edge (Wang does some really great ones), a pair of leather trousers or doing something as simple as turning up the collar on my jacket. I know my body shape very well and I dress to enhance my height and shape.

Style advice: Top tip? Take t-shirts to the dry cleaners before their first wear and the heat will bond the jersey so the fabric will wear better!

Style advice: Always wear amazing heels, but bring a pair of flats in your bag. Don’t be afraid to express your personality in clothes! And a good haircut is your best accessory.

Ok.

So take me for example, Aliaa! Lazy to dress up on a given day (anyday will be my casual friday) but I dress messy with dressy (duh!), no matter what you do girls, skinny jeans with v-neck thirts. You can always mix it with a lovely bangles and casually stroll with your hobo bag! a little pop of color will go a long way! You don’t have to know fashion to be fashionably, all you need is some key pieces that you can mix it with anything.

One thing we sure love about Spring is the Film Festivals and Metropolitan College of New York is no exception. Launched just two years ago, MCNY short film festivals has become to me the best platform for new filmmakers out there. Simply the only school in New York City that started with a short film festivals, MCNY is truly a students event that transcendent the creativity of short films.The festival offers opportunity for short film makers to get their film out there.

Pssst, they’re still looking for submission for the short film festival. Films should not be longer than 20 minutes or larger than 500 MB to be eligible for submission. What are you waiting for? take out that camera and shoot away and don’t forget to read the terms and conditions http://www.mcny.edu/filmfestival/

Spread the word.

You’re excited because Sephora carries exclusive brands, yes? Among the hundreds, which ones are your favorite? Share with me ♥ Beauty Editor, SM that’s the question asks from Sephora Malaysia Facebook page. Don’t forget to LIKE it! because Soi66 adore Sephora and we bet all the fashiontastic girls out there will enjoy it as much as we do!

The answer for it is : NARS

Nars product shades carry provocative names like ‘Orgasm’, ‘Deep Throat’, ‘Striptease,’ and ‘Sex Machine‘. NARS ‘Orgasm’ blush is one of their most top-selling products, being Best of Sephora’s Best Blush for 2006, 2007 and 2008. The success[3] of the ‘Orgasm’ products led to the creation of gift sets such as the ‘Safer Multiple Orgasm’ set, which includes a NARS Multiple (a cream stick which can be used on eyes, lips, or cheeks) in ‘Orgasm’ as well as two condoms[4]. They have also developed an ‘Orgasm’ nail polish and different kind of ‘Orgasm’ product throughout the years.

Back to Sephora Malaysia.

Don’t you think it’s too grand for a Sephora store? and how much do you think the cosmetics will be?

We do know for a fact that Sephora is a one stop center for make-up (at least for us because we’re in New York City) but how can Sephora compete with Sasa? as the fundamental business foundation is similar?

Other than that, we can tell you that they’re rounding up their team of beauty insiders!

Sephora Malaysia, PR! We’re talking to you. Email us the press release… haha!
