Well, here we are in June: I can’t believe how quickly this year dissolved. It’s been a crazy year so far, a great year, a full of many things year. A lot has happened. Juggling my increasing work responsibilities alongside my ever-expanding distractions has been tough. I have forbidden myself to go out this long-weekend. Life energizes me in ways I cannot explain, it’s invigorating, but also absolutely flustering. As soon as I catch my breath, I am breathless for something new all over again. I am always half in love with something or somewhere every week.
Speaking of something new, I was at the Harper’s Bazaar x Marc Jacob’s Spring/Summer 2017 styling event at the Marc Jacobs boutique in KLCC. When I think of Marc Jacobs, I always imagine something fun and colourful. I mean, who could ever forget the iconic Mouse Flats? Remember those? LOVE! The S/S 2017 did not disappoint. It’s a collection that celebrates music, art and youth. A plethora of colours, prints and everything in between. For this collection, Marc Jacobs collaborated with artist Julie Verhoeven (their last collaboration was for the Lous Vuitton S/S 2002 collection when Marc was Creative Director) where she is enlisted to create patchworks and embroidery for the clothes. There are pieces of it everywhere – pills, rainbows, castles, hair dryers, rainbow-coloured teeth, rabbits, lips, and the skyline of New York.
Marc Jacobs branded desserts were served;
Verhoeven’s patchwork of pills on the Marc Jacobs denim skirt;
denim patchwork sling bag with Veerhoeven’s patchworks;
cute orange platform sandals and this season’s must-have bag.

This biker-jacket is my favourite piece! I fell in love with it and I wore it almost the entire duration of the event. Then I had to return it
And last but not least, after all that bubbly and dessert, I wanted REAL FOOD! So I headed to Wong Ah Wah in Jalan Alor, an after-party spot for almost everyone I know.
Clockwise: Yau Mak with garlic, the famous bbq chicken wings, tofu with dried shallots and my favourite Siong Tong Lala!
