Leopard print fancy dress

Posted in fashion with tags , , , , , , , , on November 30, 2008 by LPB

Some of you may remember Cavalli’s collaboration with H&M last year ; where animal print was ubiquitous.


My current obsession with accessories featuring feline animals has gave me some inspiration regarding fancy dress for the Christmas party – something strikingly bold & loud, unapologetically mesmerizing, a predator among the herd.


This amazingly unique sari is far more superior than those little black dresses; it not revealing at all, yet drives men imagination to the safari of passion land with every single moves of your waist & hip ( that’s temptation/tease ).


Compliment this outfit with animal printed bangles and if you could afford a piece of Cartier’s ……

For the make up, i would prefer the heavy handed, over the top 80’s feel, with a modern twist of course.


Who say you should not have dramatic eyes and  bold lips at the same time?

Finish this with an animalistic perfume like Poison, Obsession or Opium.

This is my idea of a feline theme fancy dress – the “LOOK at ME, i am QUEEN of the jungle” style. 

An example of it’s so wrong that it’s so right, no?

Some funky, affordable accessories to dress up in.

Party time

Posted in fashion, makeup with tags , , , , on November 29, 2008 by LPB

Its the time of the year again, time to dress up for the office party, time to grab someone special ( or an arm candy ) for the festive season.


I like the glamourous “Amy Winehouse” look.

It all about Feline eyeliner & accessories. Be bold, be sparkly, be adventurous!

I am obsessed with the panther / leopard / tiger / lion theme when it comes to accessories;

My mantra? Breakfast at Tiffany & Dinner at Cartier.


Chanel Mat Lumiere powder make up

Posted in makeup with tags , , on November 29, 2008 by LPB

A powdery compact texture for a velvety, beautified complexion. Shiny areas are mattified and imperfections are concealed.


I like Chanel’s mat lumiere powder as it delivers a naturally matte finish, with sheer to medium coverage, without leaving my face chalky, ashy or flaky. 

This ultra convenient compact delivers a superbly touched up appearance within seconds, leaving the skin modestly mattified. It will not cake or crease into lines and has a reasonable wear.

On the other hand, the range of shades is rather limited; It will not minimize the appearance of pores and those looking for ultra absorbency (sebum) will be disappointed.

Statement making Top & Bottom

Red Lips

The retro-starlet allure of Hollywood glamour, with a modern twist.

I prefer M.A.C.’s Lady Danger & Russian Red to Red she Said; for the Dita Von Teese finish.

Meanwhile, the adoring carmine brush sets are  fashionably fabulous,not to mention that these are great for traveling and stocking filling for the coming festive season!


Chanel holiday 2008

The shimmering gold powder offers sublime glow & glamourous finishes.

The brownish tone eyeliner duo is rather ordinary, great shades but nothing to be excited about. I like the nail varnish Perle Rosee, a rather classy beige pink and the nude rouge allure lipstick; very chic!


M.A.C. & Hello Kitty

Posted in makeup with tags , on November 25, 2008 by LPB

According to,  M.A.C is collaborating with Sanrio and is about to launch the Hello Kitty collection.


The Hello Kitty offerings fall into two collections: the Hello Kitty Colour Collection and the more high-end Hello Kitty Kouture. The bulk of the items are in the former category: six shades of lipstick with names like Fashion Mews and Straying; six Lipglass shades,and two tinted lip conditioners; two eye shadow palettes, which each contain four shades; two shades of pigment  and two Reflects Glitter stockkeeping units — one blue, one pink; Four Glitter Eye Liners, two shades of Beauty Powder; three shades of nail polish; a black mascara and false lashes round out the color offerings.

Shades range from pinks and turquoises to lavenders and greens.


Hello Kitty Kouture is intended to be the high end of the collection. Two shades of Dazzleglass, each feature a reusable silver chain pendant with Hello Kitty outlined in white Swarovski crystals on black with a pink crystal bow. Sheer Mystery Powder, available in three shades, is packaged in a silver powder compact with Hello Kitty outlined in white Swarovski crystals with a pink crystal bow on a black background.

The Hello Kitty Colour items, a Petite Makeup Bag, and a medium Makeup Bag, 

There are also some cute items like plush doll, purse mirror, and three-brush collection, mirrored key clip, beaded bracelet, tote & soft vanity kit available……

While none of the executives would discuss sales projections, industry sources estimated that the limited edition MAC Hello Kitty collection could do upwards of $12 million in North American retail sales. That projection is slightly larger than that of the hit Barbie collection.

I am sold.

Gucci Hysteria

Posted in fashion with tags , , , on November 24, 2008 by LPB

Recently, i had developed an obsession with bags, i mean bags that cost a fortune; after i had my Chanel’s small messenger, Balenciaga’s clutch, Mulberry’s large mabel….


I am now putting Gucci’s hysteria on my wish list, i love the black python and the floral print one.


The white python with tattoo heart looks cool too!

Tom Ford White Patchouli

Posted in fragrance with tags , , on November 24, 2008 by LPB

With its sensuous core of patchouli, Tom Ford White Patchouli perfectly captures the myth of a generation. Surrounded by sleek wood notes, tempered by elegant white flowers, this modern fragrance with retro-classic influences is a sophisticated interpretation of bohemian chic.


Topnotes: peony, bergamot, coriander

Middle notes: jasmine, rose absolute, ambrette seed

Basenotes: patchouli, blonde woods, and incense.

It’s a very smooth perfume with a muted incense note. It’s lightly earthy and middling dark, very chic & sensual.

It’s a clean & sophisticated perfume that makes me wanna get dirty & naughty, like the innocent looking pina colada .

I am gonna wear this during my night shift.
