The Tinsel Rack: Pea's take #1
Let’s talk clothes first! I used to get swayed a lot by different influencers and ppl around me when it comes to fashion but recently, it seems like I’ve finally come to my senses and realized what my style truly is leh.
Basic is really not my thing. I tried but omg, I cant live with no colors in my life leh. Crochet, lace and textures are also right up my alley.
I’ve always been a fan of The Tinsel Rack and when Joyce proposed a weekly collab on how I would put together and create looks for one chosen outfit, I was more than excited! I love clothes. Clothes AND makeup??! 🙋🏻🙋🏻🙋🏻
When TTR showed me their collection from last week, I DIED. I actually browsed for 30 mins, narrowed it down, and then spent another 30 mins trying to choose one piece.
Can y’all guess which one I chose LOL
Flo actually whatsapped me their collab and look at what Joyce said too.
Everyone knows the kinda clothes I wear HAHAHA
When it comes to buying clothes, my husband likes to say, ‘It looks like smth you already have.’ / ‘You just wore smth like this yesterday.’ / ‘Didn’t u alr bought smth like this last week?’
I really really wanted the Isla Mesh Dress (white maxi) but I also wanted to go for smth different to show y’all how I would style it. So I went against my inner calling lololol and picked the....
Miki Mesh Embroidery Romper!
I’ve never been a navy kind of girl but I’ve learnt to really love this color recently. It makes me look damn fair leh haha
With this really dominant color, one way is to keep everything else neutral just so the romper stands out on its own.
Here, I paired it with my beloved basket Taobao purse and some nude mules. I actually picked these white tassel earrings but I’ll show y’all another one I will match it with later!
I’m wearing the romper in S (lol I used to be an XS but I haven’t stop eating since I came back HAHAHA FML got wedding somemore) and it fits me very well. That’s why I love TTR clothes lah. The sizing is damn on point for me.
Also, the zip at the back is navy too so no ugly silver zipper (I can’t tank this really). If it’s gold, I don’t mind so much. I’m damn bias HAHA I love gold hardware a lot.
Look at how pretty the embroidery is 😍 I love the added detail of the translucent sleeves. 是美的 lor.
For makeup, I wanted to concentrate on a clean base with big lashes cause I thought I would pair the navy with a red lipstick. But not just regular red lips! Instead, I adapted with Korean gradient red lips.
I chose to pair the Laneige Matte Two Toned Gradient Lip Bar in my ultimate fave - No. 2 and to add a bit more pop of red to the middle of the lips, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 18 It’s redding man!
Not only do I want a clean base, I also want an extra glow to bring dimension. I kept everything else Iike blush and contour to a minimum.

This lipstick combo is just 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼
I would also pair the romper with this earring too leh! These are from HH. The navy matches and the different textures in the earrings is so lovely. Adds that extra touch of detail! The wood is so so so nice, I feel.
I had so much fun with this TTR collab and I can’t wait to do the next one! I should come up with a title for this but I’m stuck leh. I can’t come up with a cute title lol
I’m sure most of u know that TTR has opened in Malaysia Paradigm Mall and there's a storewide discount till 8th October! I actually wanted to make a visit when I was down in KL but saaaad cause no time ☹️ But all of u from KL should go support and got discount somemore leh hahaha
