Some scans from my April 2000 Vogue magazines. Used to love Vogue issues.. then came along the Internet, financial and storage crisis. My favourite pick would be the third last picture. It contains high artistic value. i still can’t get over it, even till today when i look at it. Thanks to Vogue for the many wonderful articles and coverage on the fashion & design world. Most importantly, i am thankful to God for the existence of Vogue :D

[ p/s: Have you ever wondered that why am i still here blogging when i’m supposedly to be out there in KL with my family for a shopping marathon as mentioned in earlier posts? Hmmm, guess what? we missed it! Trip was cancelled due to last minute changes, Ughh! i hate the word ‘change’ for no good reason!!! ]


Yellow, the attention seeker.

Posted in Style by styleantagonist on April 17, 2009


Stereotypically speaking, most of us would relate the color ‘Yellow’ to some construction boots, raincoat, fire-hydrant or even mustard. Yellow could sometimes be hideous if not carefully used or applied due to the fact that its very eye-catching. Some of us, especially designers and attention-seeking-celebrities might like the idea of being noticeable by creating a new look or simply putting on a vividly bright color outfit, shoes or accessories. However, those of the above do make a good fashion statement and i call it ‘Bold & Stunning’. Lastly, not forgetting the shoes, Michael Kors, Marni, Christian Dior & Bebe produced a dreadfully-attractive design with those color and they played the game well. Bravo!
