We absolutely adore Blake Lively! She who famously does not employ a stylist, is hot commodity on and off the Gossip Girl set – she’s just been named by Karl Lagerfeld as the face of Chanel and in December, won Vogue’s fashion seal of approval – they named her as one of the best dressed ladies of 2010 and put her on the cover of their special issue. 

We  have pleasure in presenting this buttery soft Banana Republic cropped leather jacket, inspired in part by the lovely Blake. We've pictured two examples of how Blake have managed to put a twist on this classic  piece by giving it a tough-luxe vibe beyond the traditional 'biker/rocker chick' aesthetic. Just the way we like it, too : minimal effort, maximum look.

This supremely versatile jacket has clean lines and a bag load of attitude. From rockin' out in a shorts and and floral blouse to throwing it over a simple grey dress, this piece adds edgy style to everything. Jacket has a pointed collar with a  zip fastening through the front, seam detail, long sleeves and is fully lined. 100% leather. In excellent condition. Size US XS and priced at RM249.

So go on, become a rebel with a cause!

….likewise for personal style, don't you think?

You’ve spent the last few weeks wrapping gifts with ribbons and bows this week – now, consider adding one to your outfit. The bow, a symbol for all things sweet and girly, is no longer reserved for the toddler set; on the contrary, its position has, over the last couple of years, elevated in the fashion world (remember Anne Hathaway's Valentino dress and Nicole Kidman's red Balenciaga, both worn during the 2007 Oscars? and who could forget Lanvin's collection for H&M?), thanks to its ability to transform even the most sober garment into a whimsical, yet sophisticated piece. We’ve rounded up a few select pieces that we’re certain will make you skip happily out of the door humming 

"East is east and west is west 
And the wrong one I have chose
Let's go where I'll keep on wearin' 
Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows 
Rings and things and buttons and bows..."*

“I’m not a fashion person. I’m anti-fashion. I don’t like to be part of that world. It’s too transient. I have never been influenced by it. I’m interested in longevity, timelessness, style—not fashion.”  
- Ralph Lauren

Our first offering for 2011 slants a little bit towards the preppy and collegiate theme – a likely effect the new academic year starting and having sent our kids back to school this week. One of the principles of preppy style that we looove and adhere to the most is that “Clothes can cost any amount, but they must fit. Many a preppy has an item from a vintage shop or a lost-and-found bin at the club that was tailored and looks incredibly chic.”* As we have always tried to propogate, there is no shame in used, ladies!

Preppy is often mentioned in the same breath as Ralph Lauren, and the brand’s classic and ubiquitous polo shirt has become a fashion must-have with the preppy set the world over. It can be worn with just about any type of bottoms – khakis, shorts, jeans, skirts etc; which means it’s a good place to start if you’re looking to kick it with the preppy types. Right now we're offering pre-loved Ralph Lauren ladies skinny fit polo shirts in the yummiest, juiciest, preppiest shades of navy blue, sky blue, and hot pink, and apple green. Stick with us, and you'll be well on your way to prepdom!

A TaiTaiTip: You can’t just look the part; you must also play the part! As you pop your polo shirt collars, don't forget the proper etiquette to go with that preppy style. Always demonstrate grace, good manners and civic-mindedness i.e. NO texting at the dinner table, never talk about money, make eye contact when meeting someone for the first time, write thank you notes, and resolve to call Grandma once a week (seriously!)


Ralph Lauren Skinny Fit Polos
Rainbow brite: What sets the preppy style apart from the rest is the insouciant sense of color.  So splash a bucketful of bright bold colours into your ensemble with these timeless and super-comfy tops. Besides, you can never have one Ralph Lauren polo shirt too many (trust us on this)! Each shirt has two-button placket with ribbed polo collar and armbands. Buttons are embossed with brand name. The embroidered pony accents the left chest.
