Bloglovin, H&M Announced The 5 Finalists for 2016 Breakthrough Fashion Blogger of the Year Award!

27 Jul

Wow, what a long blog title!

This June, I have decided to up my game a little bit and came up with a series of photoshoots to participate in H&M’s Breakthrough Fashion Blogger of the Year competition.

I put on my thinking cap and tried to style my outfits a little bit differently from my usual ways. I took out all my H&M fashion apparels and worked out the most interesting combinations. I spent time discussing with the make up artist and photographer about the concept and persona I want to express through my pictures.

And here is one of my entries (another one is The Futuristic Siren) for the competition.

Sahara Princess

Very mysterious. In a faraway land where there is little or no rain, grows a magically beautiful flower. Sands and scorching sun could not hide her whimsical sense. She is fearless about future and her optimistic outlook of life is ready to make a difference in the world.

I mixed and matched a Ushanka-hat with a oversized-printed-blazer (from H&M) and a layered-tutu-tea-dress with boots and lots of accessories.

This combination turned out to be really whimsical and fun!

(I even pinned a peacock brooch with fancy stones in my hat if you notice.)

Well, then I was so anticipated for the results after I submitted my entry. I mean, entering competition really makes you nervous in a way or another right? Especially when it is such a prestigious competition open for all fashion blogger over the world. OMG~

And the wait is finally over, H&M and Bloglovin announced the 5 nominees for 2016 Breakthrough Fashion Blogger of the Year Award. You can read about it HERE. And guess what,

I was not in the list.

I didn’t get picked for the award.

Ya I know it kinda sucks when you didn’t get the things you want so badly. But it’s okay for I know I have put in my best and worked hard to make it happen.

In the list or not, I have made my own literary breakthrough today.

Futuristic Siren [Blue Sequin Dress X Round Sunglasses]

18 Jul

Millionmars Futuristic Siren 5

The moment when I saw this dress, it really resembles the blue green fish scales that we sometimes see on a blue fish in the sea. The magical combination changes colours under different lightings, reflecting hues of blue and green, which I find very intriguing. “It would make a great party dress”, that is what I thought when I decided to make it mine.

Few days later, when I try it on again in my own closet, I started to feel very different about this dress. It has a deep U back and very flattering three quarter sleeves. It reminds me of a mermaid, or a siren depicted in the ancient mythology. And this has become the inspiration for this particular photoshoot.

In our ever-changing world, women have evolved to become multi-faceted. They have turned into new complex creatures who are generally doing the best they can, with what they have. They are capable of jumping from one role to another in split second.

As depicted in the ancient mythology, the sirens are beautiful and dangerous. The futuristic sirens’ constantly changing appearances are results from adaptation to the fast-paced world and over-stimulation.

The round sunglasses here serve as an emotional barrier to filter out inappropriate or unnecessary feelings that might ruin the decoy. A siren has no time to waste.

This was a passion project of mine. I worked with AN Art Home Studio to have this concept photographed, and I am in awe when I see all the pictures. It was such a breathtaking moment for me, it is like my own fantasy comes true.

Hope you enjoy these pictures as much as we enjoy crafting it.

If you like the dress, it is from H&M.

I genuinely feel happy. Because I am still (able to) dreaming at this age. They said men without dreams are like birds without wings. I hope I am able to hold on to my dream as long as I could. Wishing you a nice week ahead.

God bless you.

3 Classic Office Outfit Ideas

8 Jul

Classic Office Outfits

Work is part of our lives that is so important that we certainly want to dress up for. Today I am sharing with you the 3 classic office outfits that I think every career woman should invest in.

Peplum Skirt

The Peplum skirt which have a ruffle around the waist, have come back into style, and would be perfect for work or party depending on the fabric and prints. It is a good choice for those with bellies and extra large hips, cos’ it makes them appear small😀

Many has argued that peplum dress is not for anybody but seriously I’ve never seen peplum look unflattering on anyone. And I personally think this classic design creates sophisticated and professional look.

Pencil Skirt

A pencil skirt is a tricky one, cos’ the slim-fitting design makes ones body look tall and slim but at the same time restricting the leg’s movement. Like if you drop a pen on the floor, you need to put your legs together and tilted a bit before you can bend your knees and gently squad down a little (just a little) to pick up the pen. And maybe this is the whole point of a pencil skirt: To make every move smaller, more gentle and therefore MORE GRACEFUL!

Tailored Suit Dress

They say tailoring is the secret of well dressed woman.

Tailoring can make clothes way more flattering and professional. And I always admire women in well fitted dress. They simply look good and polished.

That is why it makes sense to invest in tailoring a dress, especially for work and formal functions.

My favourite tailored workwear, a silver ruffled suit dress.

Everyone works. It’s a way of contributing to the society and proved self-worthiness. I hope you like these outfits ideas and no matter what you do, make sure you are doing something constructive and productive (yes, unpaid job like being a house wife is a productive job too!), so that this world could be a little bit better each day.

God bless all of you.
