It hardly began, now March is already over

March 2012 is coming to an end, and because things were moving at a pace (and direction) of an out-of-control rollercoaster, I am both surprised and glad that time passed by so quickly this time around.

My schedule’s filled up with events again, which means less time for me to actually do work in the office, but everyone’s launching their Spring/Summer collections and more boutiques are popping up in KL. Here’s to a very busy season, and a very stressed me (contrary to popular belief, an editor just not only attends events and sips champagne like a bawse. We have daily (online) schedules, targets, meetings, advertorials and articles to write, etc.)

Here are some pictures, I definitely should try taking more when I’m out.

And then something funny happened to me a few weeks back. I was in a hurry to get lunch so I rushed out of the office and went to The Gardens. After walking around a bit, I noticed I had two different Havaianas on! I obviously have too many underneath my office desk.

Badgley Mischka’s entire pre-Fall 2012 collection is just gorgeous, but here are my top picks:

I especially love long, empire cut dresses. They suit my body shape.

Global Fashion Week: SS 2012

I’m a little late for Fashion Week posts, but this is the first free & easy Saturday I’ve had in months…so I’ll be doing a lot of updates this weekend – God knows when I’ll have some time for myself again.

Dress like a First Lady, or own her dress

The National Museum of American History is running an exhibition of dresses belonging to the First Ladies of the US. My favs (my fashion favourites are always a personal choice, ie what I’d actually wear personally):

Former First Lady Frances Folsom Cleveland’s dress (from the late 19th century!):

Breaking Dawn, Twilight style

I’m not a Twilight fan (far from it, in fact) but since Twilight: Breaking Dawn was released in national cinemas this week, MSN Life & Style came up with a few fashion-related Twilight galleries.

From ‘The best of Twilight stars’ red carpet outfits‘, here are my top picks:

Kristen Stewart’s Valentino lace dress:

Ashley Greene’s one-shoulder, Greek-inspired Fendi number:

Nikki Reed’s embellished Marchesa:

Rachel, MSN Life & Style’s intern, did a good job with ‘Steal Her Look: Girls of Twilight‘. Maxi dresses are my number 1 choice for weekends and for the days when I miss the beach:
