Aaah...the Boogie. 

Created by Michael Kors during his tenure as Celine’s designer and creative director, the now-iconic Boogie bag has been reproduced in countless colours/materials, and versions of the bag have graced the arms of Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker and Gwyneth Paltrow.

This Celine Denim Boogie is a sassy, feminine bag offering all the right details: the interior is roomy with two open sections with one central zippered compartment; two side pockets (perfect for slipping in a slim phone or some loose change) while the gold hardware and brown leather trim give it an elegant touch. Carried in hand or crook of the arm by two very comfortable rolled leather handles, the size is perfect for everyday use. It’s also a great piece to perk up any ensemble - the blue denim with allover Celine logo print is playful, yet low-key enough to mix and match with a number of looks.

The bag is in very good condition with some minor signs of wear. Complete with original card, booklet and dust cover. Priced at RM1400. Free delivery to anywhere in Peninsular Malaysia. SOLD

You can’t go wrong with a Celine Boogie, this bag is a great investment piece that transcends fashion fads and will undoubtedly remain a mainstay for years to come. Just the one to have and to hold...

One look we’re seeing on many style-savvy starlets lately is the animal print – on dresses, handbags, shoes, scarves, blouses etc. While we acknowledge that these prints are nothing new (we actually had a small style spread on this trend way back in February), we’re totally loving the way fashion frontrunners are working them into their wardrobes.

Accordingly, since we always endeavor to bring you the best deals and style ideas, we're delighted to present the TaiTaiTwins’ try-the-trend animal print inspired “mood board”, where we’ve put together a collage of our picks of the litter:


Animal print can really look great on anyone. It just depends on what you put with it and how you wear it.

If your style is classic, you can throw on a kitty print cardi over an LBD or black pencil skirt. And oh, don't forget the  slick of red lipstick ;) 

If you’re more edgy, try pairing your animal print with bright colors such as hot pink or lime green.

But the easiest—and in our opinion, the best—way to wear animal accents is via accessories. Animal print shoes for example, are a great idea if you prefer to be more subtle. We personally think that animal print ballet flats are so French chic. They give simple monochrome separates an instant punch and we absolutely love it!  So dare to bring out the animal (print) in you as it’s a style staple that’s here to stay, for sure!

Allow us to offer some valuable TaiTai tips though: whatever your style inclinations, less is more. Keep your outfit in neutral shades and use one print at a time. Style your hair simply. Don't even think about the wild mane. If there ever was a time to have big hair, this ain’t it!

October is internationally recognised as the Breast Cancer Awareness Month:



But seriously ladies, underneath the witty sarcasm of this statement lies a sombre fact that breast cancer is the most common cancer among Malaysian women from all ethnicities and  also the most common cause of cancer death among women in Malaysia. The disease accounts for 31.3% of newly diagnosed cancer cases in Malaysian women between 2003-2005, as confirmed by the Third (and latest) Report of the Malaysian National Cancer Registry (Lim, Rampal & Halimah, 2008). Breast cancer risk is determined by many factors including age, genetic predisposition, diet and lifestyle choices. Since risk factors are based on probabilities, even someone without any of the known risk factors can still get breast cancer.

The Malaysian Medical Association asserts that women who were less likely to undergo breast examinations are at a higher risk of late detection of breast cancer.  Having personally seen the effect of this disease on loved ones,  we here at T3 feel very strongly about doing our bit in putting the word out on the importance of early detection. It's not enough just being aware about the "Big C", we also encourage our readers to be proactive - perform self-examinations regularly (check out the following insert on how) or schedule annual clinical breast exams. Routine mammograms are encouraged for women in their 40s. The best protection is indeed, early detection.






p/s: We can also contribute to the cause by making donations to cancer organisations such as MAKNA and PRIDE Foundation. In honour and support of the many heroines fighting this disease, brands such as Estee Lauder, Origins, Kao, Ralph Lauren, and Wacoal, among others, are offering (for a limited time only) special edition pink merchandise for sale. Part of the proceeds from the sale of these products will benefit various cancer charities and organisations. So think (and shop) pink - we can make a difference!
