stick think to curvy lines.

How to look curvier.

as much as we think its the girls with to much curves that have the problems... lets not forget there are plenty of us who are screaming out to have some kind of dimensions!!!

and for this.. we have the power of fashion. used properly, we all know clothing can change the way we look. It can make you look thin or curvy.

so this one is for all my skinnies.. tips to looking like you have a few curves..

1. Wear Padded Tops

A padded top can add curve. These are tops that have padded cups build in. This way, your bosom will look fuller. In Malaysia however, finding a padded top may be a tad bit difficult, so maybe a better idea will be to invest in a good push up or padded bra. You should choose tops that have ruffles or lining to add more curve.

2. Wear Different Color Tops and Bottoms

When you wear different colors, it breaks up your body and it adds more curve. If you wear one color over all, it will make you look thin. Especially if its a solid dark colour. The effect is not so bad if it is a light colour.

3. Wear Busy Pattern

Busy pattern can hide your shape and people won’t be able to see your shape. Even if the clothes are tight, a busy pattern gives the illusion of bigger size.

4. Wear Jeans

Jeans can make you look curvy because it’s heavy in texture. Also, with all the beautifully cut jeans out there, jeans for skinny figures add big time curves. A skinny girls best bet will be to head for a boot cut which hugs the bum and flares out at the bottom giving curves.. and also a tight top paired with flared jeans.

5. heavy textures

Heavy textures will add more curve. You can try wool, jeans, and cotton instead of silk or other thin fabrics. These thinner fabrics cling to the body and show off your skinny bod where else, thicker materials stand out and actually add an illusion of healthy weight.

6. Flat Shoes

Flat shoes can make you look shorter and curvy. Heels can add height and it can make you look thinner.

7. high waised stuff

haigh waisted clothing gives curves because it cuts the body into two at all the right places. the short top highlights the bosoms and the cut at the waist accentuates a tiny waist. the cut also highlights the curve of the butt, no matter how little there is :)

the faceoff!!

you would think that since these celebs have VERY well paid and possibly VERY well fed stylists, they wouldn't have the embarrassment of having to wear something someone has already been paparazzied (new word i came up with. means: been snapped, spoken about and almost forgotten.. almost.)

but nope. here are a few offenders.. and yes.. i wanna see who looks better!!

Amanda VS Paris

i have to say i'll give this one to Amanda. her sexy hair, cute booties and shiny legs give her two thumbs up in my books. Paris looks almost matronly. what is with that pose??? maybe i'm just not used to seeing her so covered up??

Paris VS Emma not much to say. i think Paris looks GHASTLY. like she broke her mirror and none of the hilton hotels could provide her one fast enough.

KIM VS Ginnifer

I say Kim wins this one. The dress itself is pretty and its decent. So why pair it with leggings again?? Being a white ruffles dress, wearing your hair up is a bit of a risk of looking old. laying it easy and sexy like Kimmy it a safer bet with a dress like this.

Kelly VS Kate
definately Kate. With a slender tall figure these dresses look and fall better. It makes Kelly look stumpy and curveless.
Anna VS Heidi

I dun understand why Anna dressed a perfectly beautiful dress up with that kind of a jacket? Take the jacket off and the look may have been rescueable. so yes. definately the supermodel wins this one.
Superstar VS Supermodel

Again the supermodel. J Lo, although having impeccable taste in clothes (cant say the same thing about men) has a slip up or two every decade or so. This outfit makes her look matronly. i hate the bag she's carrying. delivering someone's post J Lo??
so do you agree with me or disagree? drop me a note! ;)

scarlet woman or shrinking violet?

i found this article while reseraching for another blog post which i found so very interesting. :) check it out!! and then think about your lippie colours.. and what they say about you!!!

If you're looking for clues to a woman’s personality, then read her lips.
A study has found that all those cliches about lipstick colour really do hold true.
Women who paint their lips red do so because they are full of selfconfidence, or intend to appear so.
Ladies who use the brightest reds are also more likely to have better career prospects than women who wear less striking shades.

Those who choose a darker red are feeling sexy and sensuous, and a slick of pale pink means that a woman has a fantastic love life and is happy.

Bare lips, on the other hand, signal that a woman is lacking confidence and feeling less attractive.
Seven out of ten of the 3,000 women polled said they usually chose their lipstick to match the way they were feeling.
But almost three quarters also said that using a different colour could actually help change their mood.
A spokesman for online make-up store VIE at home, which carried out the research, said: ‘The findings show just how much influence the colour women put on their lips can have.
‘By applying red lipstick women instantly feel more confident, sexy and in control – which could be why the women who wear the shade are more likely to succeed in their career too.

Mixed message: Pale pink lipstick, like socialite Paris Hilton and singer Beyonce Knowles wear, can represent either happiness or a good sex life.

‘Wearing lipstick is a quick and affordable way for women to draw attention to their lips, making them feel more attractive and instantly inject a bit of glamour. Also altering the shade of lipstick worn can totally change a woman’s look.’
To create a profile for each colour the study asked women which lipstick shade they wore most frequently.
They were then asked to rate their levels of confidence, happiness and success.
The survey also confirmed that more than half use lippy as a pick-me-up, with 55 per cent saying it cheered them up if they applied some while they felt down.
The poll found that the average women owns lipsticks in five different shades but only keeps one in her handbag.
A spokesman for VIE at home added: ‘The fact that the average woman has five different shades of lipstick shows just how obsessed they are with the cosmetic.
‘And the research also suggests that applying a certain shade of lip colour can totally change the way a woman feels.’

my three most read.

as you can tell i have finally added a list of blogs i read at the side bar.

let me explain.

when i first started online shopping, it was a whole new world to me. i had no idea where to go, what to do, nor did i understand any of it. I KNOW I'M JAKUN OK!!!!!

so as i started experimenting( uh hum.... shopping.. ) with my new found interest, i stumbled upon these thee sites that till today i hold very dear to my heart..

1. diary of an e- shopaholic.

if you need a guide on the e shopping world.. she is your girl. from boutique links, to whats hot... she has it all.

2. a shopaholic's den.

ahh... now this girl is the girl who gave foxydy its final push. i met up with her one day for coffee and we chatted. and when i told her i wanted to start my own blog with fashion tips and advice, she told me to go for it. :)

she is the original girl who roped the blogs together to get some sort of order into the e shopping world. :) check her out.

3. your shopping kaki.

part 2. work it with a magic wand

your eyelashes make your peepers look stunning. women all over the world yearn for long beautiful lashes.

the way i see it... there are two alternatives.


personally i choose to work with what i have. not that i dun believe in falsies... but after trying them a couple of times, i find they are not only hard to wear myself... but i feel like there is something perpetually on my eye. but thats just personal opinion.

so yes... mascara.

Mascara is perhaps the most important but difficult type of makeup to use. Mascara is extremely useful because there are not many other products that can produce as stunning an effect as this type of makeup.

Many people think that choosing the right mascara (one that will produce beautiful, thick, long, and well-separated lashes) is all about choosing the right brand, but this is not necessarily true. The mascara brush or the magic wand as i like to call it is at least as important as the brand of makeup. The mascara brush is so important that rather than patenting their mascara formulations, many top cosmetic companies actually patent their brushes, instead.

What type of brush do you need?

When you apply your mascara, the type of brush you use, the length of the bristles and the space between the bristles are a few important factors that determine how your lashes will look when you are done.

The shape of the brush is important too. You get a different effect with a curved mascara brush than you do with a straight one. So what type of brush do you need when you are hoping to recreate a particular effect?

*To achieve the thick lashed-look your ideal brush has bristles that are fairly close together. If you have sparse-looking lashes and want to thicken them up, this brush is for you.

*For longer lashes choose a brush with longer bristles. The extra length will help you extend the tips of your lashes, for a luscious, long-lash look.

*To reduce lash clumping your mascara brush should have bristles that are spaced quite widely-apart. Note that this is the exact opposite of the type of brush that thickens your lashes.

*For even coverage across your entire lash line, go for a curved mascara brush. These help you achieve more even coverage because they can coat more of your lashes at the same time.

*To help you cover all your lashes including those hard-to-reach lashes at the corner of your eyes, choose a straight brush. This is especially good for people with lashes which are short baby hairs.

What else should you look for when shopping for mascara?

The brush is perhaps the most important factor to consider when choosing mascara, but it’s not the only thing. Here are some quick tips to think about the next time you’re buying mascara.

If your lashes are brittle and prone to shedding, or you have sensitive eyes, try a hypoallergenic mascara formulation, or one which contains lash conditioners to help your lashes stay healthy.

Try lengthening mascara if your lashes are thick and short, or thickening mascara if your lashes are sparse.

Waterproof mascara is a must if you’re attending a potentially emotional event such as a wedding, or if you’re planning to swim.

the peeker and the frame (part 1)

after staring at celeb's pictures every single day and being an obsessive E!watcher (my boyfriend wanted to cancel E! and i threw a "you don't support anything i do!!" line at him........ harsh....) i noticed something.

after looking at soo many, one starts to realize that although the clothes on these celebs change, a few things can make or break their outfit. and one big important (or two) aspect is the windows to their soul. :)

so todays (AND TOMORROW'S) topic is how the rest of us "imperfect" earthlings can hope to make the most of our peekers (the eyes) and their frame (eyebrows)

lets start with the frame.


get your eyebrows in shape ladies. and please don't go crazy with the tweezers!!!! According to eyebrow expert Anatasia Soare , here are some tips for grooming your brows like a star:

* Never underestimate your brows“They can make eyes look larger and bring up your cheekbones if they’re shaped correctly.”

* Beware of the arch“If you over tweeze there you’ll look surprised all the time.”

* Don’t remove too much between your eyes, either“That center space should be about the same size as one of your eyes.”
* Thicker is better“After years of me screaming at clients to leave their brows thicker, they’re listening!” says Anastasia, “Those eyebrows are feminine, sexy and timeless.”

also, invest in a good eyebrow pencil. Pick a colour that matches your hair colour the closest so you don't look comical with two different colours. Its a CARDINAL mistake to walk around with different coloured eyebrows and hair. WEIRD.

spend some time carefully filling in colour into your eyebrows for a thicker line but don't over do it please!!!

TIP: fill in the colour with soft strokes following the way the hair grows. so the pencil colour looks natural like little hairs.

the eye itself.

don't go out somewhere looking hungover with bloodshot eyes. the prettiest eyes are clear and rested. if you did have a long night and your eyes are looking hung over too, pop a tea bag over it or a slice of cucumber. u know this routine.. its a lifesaver.

also, when it comes to make up please ladies, don't look like a Christmas bobble or anything resembling an animal. The aim is to have well defined soft makeup. Harsh lines don't blend. You gotta be very careful to not take runway makeup onto the streets.

wait for part 2 tomorrow!! mascara, eye lashes and the know hows. :)

flip flop or thong.

as malaysians, we get our very first pair of flip flops at a tender age of 3 or 4. the Bata slippers or famous/infamous Japanese slippers that we keep so dear to our hearts protect our little feet.. we wear them everywhere... to the playground, to grandma's house, to steal mango from the neighbours house, to go to the shop...

and we never grow out of them.

every time our faithful slipper gives way, we go back to a store, buy another pair and jump straight into them. :)

but as we grow, our fashion sense developed. from the frocks we wore. (and we though we looked soooo pretty... like a ffaaaiiirrryyy) to the school uniform, (silly hot stuffy things!) to the hot pants (woo... adventurous a bit) to the now sunday dresses and heels... the flip flops never really died out did they?
but there really must be some kind of rules no? when it comes to this lovable duo? so these are some of the rules i follow.. personally..

where to wear flip flops.

1. supermarket
4.classes (Who bothers to dress?)
5.daily errands
6.park (wait. if its for a date then NO. keep reading. if its to walk your dog/sibling then yes. )
7. anywhere with water.

where not to wear flip flops.
1. WORK(unless u have a job thats really casual)
2. Restaurants with cloth napkins
3. Red carpet events (prom, gala dinners.. fancy pansy stuff)
4. Churches
5. Funerals
6. Out-of-office business meetings
7. First dates and blind dates (actually just the first few dates in general)
8. and of course, the white house. :)

What to Wear with Flip-Flops
Casual shorts
Very casual short skirts (think denim minis)

for the rest of the attire... i present to you.. the beautiful alternative. the PRETTY THONG!!!!! (NO la i aint talking about underwear!!!)

the pretty thong sandal is a dressier alternative to the flip flop. its casual yet trendy. and OH SO COMFY. in fact, Vincci, Nose and Viss seem to have some good ones... check them out. :)

What to Wear with Pretty Flat Thong Sandals
Casual skirts
Lightweight pants
Casual dresses

not only will they look polished and stylo, they also are kind to your aching feet. so go on.... cheat on the flipies. :)

to melissa with love. :)


so sexy. seriously!! i would give most of my shoes and all of my jewellery to have a butt like these women have. (lucky... grumbles. )

pear shaped women generally have a petite top half and a more heavy bottom. smaller chest and shoulders and wider hips. Dressed properly these women are knockouts!!!
don't believe me? think beyonce, alicia keys, J Lo..

so ladies.. after searching long and hard... (this post took 3 hours to do.. reading all that advice is no joke man.. hahaha.. )

here's the verdict!!
The key for pear shaped figures is to draw attention to the upper half of the body in order to divert attention from the hips and thighs; the result is a seemingly more balanced body.

how to to that?

Bootcuts are a dream for pear shaped women. The cut is flattering because it widens below the knee and slightly flares at the bottom. A low rise or extra low rise minimizes the appearance of large hips and gives you a more balanced appearance. This also emphasizes your sexy waist. Pants that sits on your waist will make your bottom look much bigger than it is, especially from behind, so make sure u choose a pair that sits just below the waist line.Wear bootcut pants in dark colors and with a slight heel for a look that elongates your silhouette even more.

Stay away from trousers and jeans that taper in and are tight around your ankles, but also avoid really wide leg trousers that just go straight down from your widest part. A fitted boot cut or straight leg jean or trouser is your best shape. Cropped trousers are probably a bad move as they can make your legs look shorter and therefore your hips and bum wider.

A-line or flared skirts – the ageless femininity of a-line or flared skirts are just one reason you should stock your closet with these gems. Pear shaped women will find the skirts to be comfortable and flattering. Make sure the skirt fits well at the top and flares out as it goes down – the result is a minimizing look for the hips and a beautiful and confident you!
Short, tight skirts should be avoided as these will accentuate the tops of your thighs, and divert attention to that problematic areas.


You can wear most shirts and T-shirts that more top heavy girls can’t, so make the most of it and show off your figure. Look for necklines that are scooped, draped, v'd, rounded or squared. Any neckline that has a lower and wider neckline will look great. These will emphasize your bust and draw attention to your face. Also look for an under-wire or molded bras to help with balance. A halter top that ties at the neck will give the shoulders the appearance of width they need, and this will help balance out your hips and thighs.. Boat and slash necks that create a horizontal line across your neck, making your shoulders appear wider will balance out your bottom.

Adding detail to the top half can be brilliant at drawing the eye up the body away from the problem area. Brighter colours on top or beading detail around the neck line can look great, or you could try adding a statement necklace.
Any tops and jackets that highlight your waist are flattering for you, keep dark colours on your bottom half and have fun with brighter colours and prints on your top half.


Dresses can be your best friend as long as they emphasise your waist and do not have ruffles around your hips. Empire lined dresses are great as they are tight around your smaller top half and then flare out just below you bust line, skimming over your larger bottom half. Be careful though what material the dress is made out of.. sometimes light cheaper cloth makes the dress look frumpy if its in this cut. heavier material will give a sleeker and sexier finish.
:) have fun experimenting!!

have you ever wondered how come when you watch movies... the SEXY babe is always dressed in RED or BLACK or Royal Purple?? and the girl next door is always in PINK, Green or yellow?
colour have been proven to affect us more than we think. like if you walk into a dark dull room you feel sleepy and bored... but if you're in a bright coloured store with many different colours being splashed out at you... you're suddenly so much more awake??

so why not use the same proven effects with your clothes?? channel some of that colours energy into your clothes and see what happens.. :)

Red (Jessica is surely a head turner in RED HUH??)
Want to get someone’s attention? Red is your color! The color red empowers and draws attention toward the wearer. It’s also strongly associated with romance and passion, making it a perfect date-night color. But be careful – it’s also been said that red stimulates the appetite and makes us hungry for junk food, so wear with caution if you’re trying to eat healthier.

(I love how carrie uses orange as such a fun yet sophisticated colour)
Just like red, orange attracts energy and attention. But unlike Red, it is a little more soothing and less VA VA VOOM. Orange though is a little hard to pull of with certain skin tones so be careful with this one.
(Rihanna surely rocks fashion. I love this use of yellow!! its the best i've seen!!)
sunny yellow is the perfect HAPPY colour. it can cheer you up on a bad day or perk you up when you're feeling a little blue... yellow is also associated with inspiration and intelligence so try wearing a tinge of it for that final paper or presentation!!!

Green (pregnant mommy better be wearing calm green... carrying those twins must be heavvvyyy)
ahhh... the colour of nature.. this colour is soothing and clam. It is one of the biggest shades at the moment so wearing Green won't only make you feel refreshed.. it also makes you a trend queen ! :) Green is also said to be able to reduce stress so try wearing the colour when you're feeling overwhelmed with work/studies...
(blue is so Katy... cool but standoffish)

Blue is a color that can be both peaceful and calming as well as cold and standoffish. If you’re feeling really stressed out, the color blue can help you feel more relaxed. If you’re sad, however, you might want to steer away – the color blue can subconsciously make you feel more “blue.” Studies also show that blue can make you more creative, so if you want to channel some genius for your art project, wearing blue might be able to help. It can’t hurt, right?


Regal and sophisticated, purple is associated with creativity and luxury. Like red, purple is a very stimulating colour which can boost your energy level when you see it. It’s also a color that’s sometimes associated with spirituality and intuition, so if you’re having trouble making a decision, paint your nails lavender and see what comes to you.


(who else for pink but paris)

Of course we all know pink as the true girly-girl’s favorite color, but it’s also associated with romance and happiness. Pink is very calming, so don’t wear it if you need tons of energy. Because of its romance association, pink is a good choice for a date. You can also wear it anytime you’re a little bummed out for a boost. Of course, if you personally hate pink, then (obviously) this won’t work for you.


(0ne of the best known white outfits of all time)

Missing summer on a cold spring day? Wear white! It reflects light and reminds us of sunnier days. It’s also associated with peace, innocence, simplicity, and cleanliness, although in Japan, white carnations mean death – who knew? Wear white when you want to bring out any other colors you’re wearing – it enlivens anything you pair with it.


If you’re going for a promotion at work or interviewing for a new job, you might want to wear black – it signifies power, seriousness, authority, and responsibility, all qualities your boss is likely looking for. Outside the office, black is also a color that will give you some rocker-chick edge. If you’re shy but want to feel like a badass one day, some black studded glads or boots should do the trick!

These are just some ideas for new ways to think about color in your wardrobe – obviously they aren’t steadfast guidelines that you should plan your outfits around every day.

the biggest shopping mistakes!!!

This is an old post i wrote. Till today, i haven't been able to not do everything on this list. eep.

recently watched confessions of a shopaholic!! (loves the movie btw.. the fashion was awe.some) my dad (yes he watched the movie too!) made so much fun of me after the movie that it was getting quite annoying really. anyhoos.. as i watched Ilsa (the lead) walk down the street unable to stop herself from buying something... i sunk into my chair.. and realized.. yea.. at heart.. i am a Rebecca Bloomwood...
so i looked long and hard to finally come up with a pretty good list of shopping don'ts.. (sighhhsss... )


go with your gut instinct. Don't talk yourself into an outfit that isn't flattering to your frame. No matter how good the shop assistant says it looks. remember.. she's probably getting a cut!! if you feel the clothes don't fit then don't buy them. How you feel in the outfit will portray on your face. so regardless of how popular and trendy the outfit is, if you think its yucky... it'll probably look yucky too..


It is one thing to go shopping with your girlfriends because that can be very social and enjoyable but keep in mind don't shop with a competitive friend because she will cajole you into buying more and possibly unflattering items weather or not you need it.


If you need to power shop remember to bring a list. This can help focus your attention and keep you on task. Sort of like a horse with the blinders. :)

Nothing good will come from buying uncomfortable shoes regardless of how fabulous they are.


Don't buy something you don't need because it is a fantastic sale price. I know we have all done this but it is a waste of money and closet space.


Don't buy on impulse. Ask yourself the following questions when deciding if to buy. Do I need this? Does it fit with my lifestyle or wardrobe? Where am I going to wear this? one rule i practice is to put the buying on hold and if i'm still thinking about it at the end of the day -buy it :)

maxi for tiny.

i love a good looking maxi dress. it saves your tush like your favourite pair of jeans does... but in a more feminine way i guess... throw it on, slip on a bracelet and you're good to go... take a look at some of our favourite gals..

but while maxi's look great on gals who are lanky... (HRMPH.. jelous..) tiny girls (like me!! ) are not getting in on the fun.. :( maxi dresses more often than not seem to swallow our petite frame making us look like we're dorwning in fabric...

so here are some tips which may be useful to us tinies..

1. While Rachel Bilson and Keira Knightly look great in their flowing gypsy skirts, this shape can make a short silhouette even shorter and wider. Choose a style that is well cut and avoid tent-like diaphonous skirts, to prevent being swamped.

2. In Zoe Manzi’s Daily Mail article, “Maxi dresses – the must-haves this summer “, she advises shorter women to “avoid being drowned by your maxi by making sure your dress is well cut and in proportion with your petite frame. Keep things fitted up top and avoid an overly voluminous skirt.”

3. “To stop a full, long skirt from swamping you, teem it with chunky heels and a fitted waistcoat.” is the fashion advice from In Style magazine, UK Edition April 2007.

4. Choose a close fitting empire line maxi dress which flatters most figures.
Choose a sleek, stylish A-line or bias cut, as this style flatters shorter silhouettes

5. For extra height, dresses can be accessorized with patent platforms, wedges or feminine toe-covered sling backs. Set-off these dresses with long, chunky jewelery and this season’s over sized shades and bags.

how short is "SHORT!!"

we all love the short skirt. in fact here in Malaysia its an essential. the denim short skirt that goes with flip flops for uni and then with heels for tat hot date.. or the flirty sun skirt that is used during shopping or when you're hanging out with friends...

but so often we see that one girl.. who doesn't seem to know that her skirt is just TOO TOO TOO short..
lets see the signs,
you can't lift your hands comfortably to reach for something..

you can't sit down without crossing your legs and flashing someone

you can't get out of the car decently no matter how hard you try

all the boys (and the girls, angrily) stare at you... and no its not the good kind of staring)

you cannot bend in any way in it. especially not down

u have to walk up stairs or take the elevator feeling very nervous

when u sit down in it, it rides up to your waist showing more skin and your undies...

and so on....
so here is some advice on how to avoid a distasteful short skirt.

Ask a good friend (one u can trust!!) to tell you if you look good in the skirt. One inch either way makes a huge difference! Check yourself in a full length mirror standing and sitting. If too much leg is showing and u can see that your butt is just a short way from peeking out, don't wear it. trying it on in the dressing room is different from actually wearing it.

Also, don't wear a skimpy top with an ultra short skirt. A more covered top will diffuse the "sexiness" of the skirt.
Remember A little bit goes a long way with sexy clothes. One clothing item that pushes the limit is going to work if there is only one. Otherwise, the men start their winks about the "hottie" of the day.

and here are two basic guidelines given by the famous Coco Chanel to check if your skirt is too short!
1. if you can hold a credit card length wise at the top of your knee cap, and still see skin above it, your skirt is too short.

2. The rule we used in school was if you can hold your arms at your sides and your fingertips go below your skirt, its too short. Don't know if that helps... but they are the general rules that I go by.
something to ponder about huh. :)

2. skin tone, hair tone are all lighter and glowing
3. her arms and legs are more toned
4. she has that angelic( yea right.. remember dirttyyy?) glow on the sheets.. which is supposed to be sunlight?

1. her skin tone is much lighter
2. her arms are toned
3. her boobs fuller
