What I wore: Chinese New Year 2012 #1

This year for Chinese New Year I manage to grab some pretty good buys from Kuala Lumpur. Instead of showing them to you like I did here, I thought of making an outfit post or two with the pieces that I bought.

Here are a couple of the outfits that comprise the recent items I bought.

Outfit 1:

Cheongsam/Dress: Max-Tino
Shoes: Vincci
Clutch: Random wholesale shop (KL)

 Accessories L-R:
Low Luv ring, Denni-Kenji pink crystal ring, YSL Arty ring in coral.
With le siblings all clad in hues of red on the first day of CNY before our house visiting tradition:

Outfit 2:

Polka dot chiffon top: Max-Tino
Skinny jeans: Uniqlo
Shoes: Vincci
Necklace: Forever New
Ring: YSL Arty
Tote handbag: Prada

Max-Tino seems to be my favourite choice for well made and affordable dresses. Their dresses' price ranges from RM150 - RM300, which is around AUD 50 - AUD 150. Too bad the brand is not very well known and is hidden inside department stores like Isetan.

Another brand I love recently is Uniqlo. Some said it was good and some said otherwise. In order to not be influenced by what others say, I decided to try it out for myself and boy, I didn't regret any of it.
I was in love with their jeans! Their skinny fit tappered jeans is my favourite. It sits just nicely below your belly button and is slightly high waisted. It looks flattering on almost all body type. Not only that, it is SO comfortable I can live in them everyday. It's really hard for me to find a pair of jeans that I can
re-wear again and again due to my body shape (Cheap Mondays come to a close second) so I was ecstatic when I found them. I loved them so much, I bought 3 pair of jeans at one go. *guilty*

Uniqlo womens' jeans price ranges from RM129 - RM 169 which is around AUD 40 - AUD 65. I think it's really affordable in terms of AUD but I know some Malaysians out there still think it's a tad too pricey.

Stay tune for the next Chinese New Year outfit post.

Hope your day has been great!
