At the Media Prima Screenings...

Another attempt to wear a day dress. It's by Cacharel but I really don't like the blue belt that came with this dress so I changed it to this one which I found at one of the shops in Sungai Wang.

Different functions, different outfits..

I've had several functions over the past week and i have tried to come up with a variety of looks.

Saturday night was a Bollywood themed celebration. I wore a saree I bought while in India while shooting Explorace Season 3 with jewellery I bought from Brickfields.

At this function all of the men were given turbans to wear and I wanted to try wearing one too.

Monday night was a wedding ceremony and I wore the Fendi skirt I wrote about in an earlier post. I wore it with a one shouldered top and vintage earrings, both which I bought while studying in Australia. Bangles from Brickfields. I have worn these bangles many times, they may be familiar to you now.. :)

Last night was a formal sit down dinner and I wore the dress I wore on the red carpet for Anugerah Skrin 2 years ago. I bought this dress while shooting Explorace in India too.

Last time I wore this dress I wore it with a big black choker from MNG and my hair was up. This time no necklace and hair down.

I remember when I was being interviewed by the Malaysian Women's Weekly for my cover story with them, the writer, Rina asked me "do you ever wear the same thing more than once?"

ABSOLUTELY! and there are good reasons why. Last time I checked, money doesn't grow easily on trees or fall out of the sky or come down with the rain. We have to work hard for it and when you have spent your hard earned money, it's a waste to only wear it once. What I do believe in though is not styling it exactly the same way twice. Change the hair and accessories every time and don't wear it to the same type of function. You can create totally different looks just by doing this.

I love the way this dress glitters. And it cost me less than RM 150. I remember we had just finished shooting and ony had about an hour to shop at a nearby underground shopping area. I found this dress in a very corwded hop with no changing room so I had to just pull in over my Explorace cargo pants and shirt and guess that the dress would fit me properly without the clothes underneath. Luckily, it fits me perfectly.

And for tonights opening gala of Malaysia International Fashion Week I combined two runway pieces. One is this Fendi skirt.

And I wore this Burberry top.

And this was the end result...

Saturday night is KL Film Festival and the theme is batik.... hmmmmmmm....

More pics from devil wears prada party

There was a fashion too as part of the devil wears prada event which was..... boring.....

I saw two people wearing shoes that live in my wardrobe too. Black Zanotti shoes...

And Stuart Weitzman Moonglo aka Cinderella shoes

Camelia wore the Zanotti shoes

And Marion Caunter was wearing the Moonglo shoes...

The crowd inside the ballroom...

There were many familiar faces in the crowd..

Food was only served at 3.30 am and it tasted so good... but then again, kalau dah lapar macam nak mati, makan pasir dengan lauk batu dan minum air basi dari kolam renang busuk pun sedap kan! :)

Overall though, this wasnt the best event i've ever been to..

I wore LANVIN....

I wore the pink LANVIN dress with corset belt from bebe, zebra print shoes from Betts & Betts in Australia and vintage CHANEL handbag which is pretty much exactly the same color as the dress.

And no, I didn't cut my hair.... that is the same wig I wore to the Cameronian Arts Awards earlier this year. :)

(more pics coming from this event soon. really need to sleep now.....)

more stories on Style with Sasha

A few more stories have gone up on 'Style with Sasha'

To go to page with full listing, just click here

In reference to my previous post, the LANVIN dress seems to be the one winning votes to be worn to event Friday night.

I need to think about how to style it.

And I agree my hair shouldn't be left down, so have to think what to do instead.

This site receives thousands of readers a week, so if you would like to vote, there is now a poll on the right column.

There is also a Bollywood themed event on Saturday night and two formal dinners next week. I have to think about those two too!

For one of those, I am thinking of wearing the skirt in the picture below. It is a runway piece from the FENDI Spring Summer 2008 fashion show

But I only have the skirt, not the top or belt.

So I am still trying to figure out how to style it.
maybe with a corset and a big necklace.

Any suggestions?

What do you think? Lanvin dress or Dior new look?

To my dear readers,

I know many of you are fashion lovers and love dressing up.

This Friday night I have been invited to an event an the theme is 'Devil wears Prada'

So the dress code is to try and 'out fashion' and 'out do' everyone including yourself.

I have two options of outfits I want to wear.

One is the pink lanvin dress.

The other is a white with black lace Dior jacket inspired by Dior's iconic new look like the picture below. I have a skirt which looks like the one in the picture which i bought at H&M in London.

So what do you think, dear reader? Lanvin dress or Dior New Look?

Leave a comment! And become a follower of this blog if you haven't already. :)

A night of nostalgia in Penang

I went to Penang this weekend for a charity event themed a Night of Nostalgia.

Colourful umbrellas hung from the ceiling

There were other familiar faces there too

"Hi Sasha! I'm Izry! I love reading your blog," says this pretty girl when she comes up to me

"Yay! We must take a picture then!"

As part of this event, the book, "Nostalgic Penang' was launched. It is a really beautiful book with lots of pictures from around Penang. As my father is from Penang I brought one back for him and he thoroughly enjoyed looking at the pictures. Support local publishers and buy a copy!

The event was held at the iconic E&O hotel in Penang.

I took some pic around the hotel

In the lobby

In the nice restaurant called 1885

My outfit (top and bag from Dior, skirt from Dolce & Gabbana) is an attempt at a day look.. :)

While I was there, I also visited the Peranakan Mansion, but I will put pics of that up tomorrow. :)

Day dresses....

I don't understand day wear. I'm either over dressed or under dressed. never just right.

One of my best friends has advised me to start trying to wear day dresses.

So instead of me wearing either black pants of jeans during the day all the time, to be a bit more feminine.

I have slowly started trying to buy some days dresses. Two people who's day dressing I like are Dita von Teese and Victoria Beckham. I prefer slightly flowy dresses though.

How these two always look so perfect is amazing.

This weekend i have to go to Penang for a charity event. I'm going to try and wear something a little more dressy for my flight there and back, not my usual jeans with ballet flats.

The best photo shoot ever!

On Monday I did a photo shoot with a local magazine.... and it was so much fun!

12 different outfits, all with completely different hair and make up too. We started at 8.30 am and didn't finish til 13 hours later.

So much make up was applied on my face and I'm sure we put an extra hole in the ozone layer from all the hairspray was used . In two looks, I not only have false upper lashes, but false lower ones as well. Never done that before. :)

It took me so long to take all the make up off later that night.

And this gives you an idea of what it feel like to have many people looking at you while doing a photo shoot.

We are not sure if the pictures are going to come out in the January or February issue of the publication. I can't wait to see the shots! I won't show you any more behind the scene shots cause it will just spoil the surprise when the actual pics come out. The guy on the far left of the above photo is Adam. He made this shoot happen. :)

This was the longest and hardest photo shoot I have ever done. But we experimented with many looks I haven't done before, and I am soooooo glad I was able to have a chance to be a part of this shoot.

I will give you a clue as to where the shoot was held.... Cindy Crawford (I love her!) did a photo shoot there too... Do you know where?

A visit to Dr Hasnul the vet

my 'children' were due for their check up and Tippex has been scratching his head so much lately that he has some bald spots on his head. Joberg conveniently disappeared so she didn't go. the two brothers shared a cage and they behaved surprisingly well.

Schizo was upset and terrified. We had to put her in a basket by herself cause she just hates the others. Despite being a very garang diva, she is very timid at the vet. I remember when I used to take her with Kira, I could put both of them in the same cage and she would hide underneath Kira. She would hide her head under his stomach.

having her heart beat checked. all normal.

checking her weight. normal and healthy weight.

hiding under the weighing scales cause she doesn't want him to touch her anymore.

tippex having his ears checked. he has ear mites. that's why all the scratching.

Lord Derbyshire hid between the wall and cupboard when it was his turn. I had to pull him out.

They were all so happy to go home! So was I!
