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.

Yesterday, Madison Avenue Spy highlighted an intriguing (if questionable) cobbler practice of adding red soles to shoes that don’t happen to be Christian Louboutins — or in need of repair for that matter — by customer request.

Given the shoe label’s ongoing run of design infringement-based lawsuits (most recently waged against red-bottomed styles by YSL and Brazil-based Carmen Steffens), we figured it would be particularly difficult to track the service down elsewhere. Not so.

HOW IT WORKS:
Lexington Avenue-based Empire Shoe Repair’s crew was happy to walk us through the hour-long, $34 process — from shaving down city-worn (or new) soles to adding traction to footbeds to prevent sidewalk slips. (In the case of genuine Louboutins, only the front half of the shoe is altered and the label logo is kept intact; for others, the only way to tell the difference is to take a close look at the Louboutin imprint-less inner arch.) And yes: While the practice is meant for Louboutin owners intending to maintain their soles, it’s clear that non-owners are cashing in on the look — and that local cobblers are cashing in on offering the service.

WHERE TO GET IT DONE:
A handful of other city sources offer the service, too. Looking for a Loub job of your own? Try one of these shops:

$34 at Empire Shoe Repair, 911 Lexington Avenue; 212-744-1257
$17 at Erik Shoe Repair, 353 Grand Street; 212-673-0507
$25 at Cobbler Express, 60 Wall Street; 212-809-9814
$18-$24 at Star Shoe Repair at 60 Bleecker Street; 212-505-9255
$34.75 at Jim’s Shoe Repair, 50 East 59th Street; 212-355-8259

Hmm, honest opinion from us. Just don’t get anything fake 🙂

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!

Til next time, We will definitely keep you posted on things.

So, it’s 2011.
2010 came and went like a very strong breeze sweeping us off our feet. Soi66 is now one and a half year old baby having had to crawl our way to the top, defying odds and overcoming obstacles along the way.
We had our share of hiccups, but thanks to YOU – we are still here, up and running!

We are now fully operating in NYC seeing that the both of us are here pursuing our Masters full time while trying to make a living *allsmiles* Sadly to announce that effective 1st February, only local orders will be entertained due to our limited resources. We will get our personal and business matters sorted out and if things do go well, we will continue to cater to our ever supportive customers back home in Malaysia.

Wish us luck in the BIg Apple, we’ll try not to miss home..much 🙂
Meanwhile, we share the newest face of the current season’s Armani jeans and underwear line – Spanish tennis ace, Rafael Nadal! El es muy guapo, no?

..oh and there’s Megan Fox as well, keeping her contract intact for the second consecutive season. Can’t say we’re feeling sorry for Christiano Ronaldo though, too sexy for Armani perhaps?

Keep in touch with us, we’re always happy to receive your mails and answer your queries.

Watch this space for more news and updates of our new adventure in States together!

Soi66

Soi66 has always been a fan and super excited for the US flagship store! If only we get to go for the launch. Ever since we saw the Spring 2011 collection! We were sold to the new rebel look of it (hey! Soi66 have the same sense of fashion, you know what I mean?)! If you don’t know what we are excited about. Let us introduce you to, Mackage!

Yes, I’m still alive. Don’t worry about the lack of posts from me in New York City. It has been a crazy month full of assignments, events, and most importantly…laziness. I swear I have a lot to talk about and it has been a great month (November and December just started)

Let’s see what’s happened since I last updated….

I discovered this yesterday and it was a mind-blowing moment for me.

In Add Minus is a brand of contemporary clothes for women and men with a pricepoint like Zara’s – but its difference is that the fabrics and quality are a cut above. It’s a great place for men and women to buy well-cut work clothes, suits (around $600) blouses and leather jackets (around $400). The brand is owned by a Malaysian company, and just opened a store in the Century City Mall, Santa Monica, California. The intend to open other boutiques in New York and Miami and Costa Mesa in 2011. New York’s is planned for this January (our heart is beating). The last time we heard, this company is not playing games! The cast from Glee and Gossip Girl is a fan already and they showed their support at the launch event. Let’s jump in the van with them, shall we?

*ehem* who ever you are, contact us 😛 we would love to get a glimpse of this awesome collection in New York City! We will definitely update you more on In Add Minus! Soi66 is uber excited.

We’re excited, are you?
