Born and raised in Malaysia, I am proud to say I am a Malaysian wherever I go.
This year, I plan to raise awareness of our country's 56th Independence to the world this 31st August, by contributing a little to fashion.
Well, I would suggest each of us, no matter where we are in the whole wide world, to dress in Malaysian flag colours, of course, red, blue, yellow or white.
Or, if these are not your favourite colours, worry not, wear batik!
Batik is one gorgeous piece of work & I admire batik makers, as each and every piece is unique.
I'm planning to paint my nails a shade of blue and red and white with yellow stars in some of them, just to signify independence.
If you think I have gone a little cuckoo, I mean, honestly, I see no wrong celebrating our independence in style, just like how people from other countries do! (:
I'll be honest. I have to admit I am not exactly an extremely patriotic person, but as a young generation, I feel the importance of recognising our roots as well as keeping in touch with our unique heritage & culture.
After all, which country has a wide diverse culture whereby all race & religion can unite happily, and has people who speaks so many different languages and dialects? ;)
Instead of wearing another country's flag, lets for once, wear our flag loud & proud!
Anyway, here are some style picks you would love!
Keep it cool and simple in this pretty batik dress.
Flaunt your silhouette in this dress paired with a lovely summer hat & flip flops.
Don't forget to accessorize with bracelets! (;

If you're the party girl, here's an idea on what to wear to celebrate Merdeka!
This sexy off shoulder navy blue lace peplum dress is just perfect for a night out of independence.
I love how the peplum accentuates your curves and the off shoulder details bring more attention towards those pretty shoulders!

Oh my, this is so celeb inspired!
Doesn't this remind you of the movie Black Swan? ;)

Wear these bags in style for independence day!
I'd choose the pink one, which one would you choose?

If you somehow can't get the day off this Merdeka (which falls on a Saturday btw!), worry not, look stylish in the office with this sleeveless casual striped top.
I'd pair these with skinny jeans and a gorgeous stiletto just cause..
Well, stilettos are sexy, don't you think?
