Last October – yes, October! This post is so late! – I attended the Mercedes Benz Stylo Asia Fashion Week here in Kuala Lumpur with some of my husband’s colleagues from the embassy. Our Consul General, my friend Johann who’s a Vice Consul just like my husband, and Ms Gigi who’s the embassy’s trade attache. No, my husband wasn’t with us as the seats allotted for the embassy were limited – and let’s face it. I’m of more use at a fashion show than he is. And he knows that. So he willingly stayed at home for some guy/alone time. Who says the wife is just an accessory to the diplomat? Hmm? 😉
Just to warn you, this is going to be a picture heavy post. I’d keep the text down to a minimum and just share photos of my favourite pieces from each collection that we saw. And a bit of side stories here and there. Cos really – would you want me yapping about cuts and silhouettes and colours and patterns instead of just checking out the photos? 😛

There! Which ones among these do you like? Which ones do you hate? Let me know in the comments below!
And before I end this blog post, I just want to share with you a few highlights of that night:
Oh, and just in case you guys are wondering – my jumpsuit is from Forever 21 (not Valentino as someone from that night asked me. But I’m flattered! Thank you! :D). It has crazy high slits on the side that are only visible when you walk. I love it so, so much! 😀 My shoes are from Charles and Keith, my bag is vintage, and my necklace is a gift from my ever-so-sweet mother in law.
That’s all for now!
