Inspirational Grace Kelly Wedding Dress


If you are looking for inspiration for your wedding, nothing could be better than the fabulous nuptials of international style icon Grace Kelly. Her 1956 wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco was watched by thirty million viewers on television, all eager to see her exquisite couture wedding dress. They were not disappointed – the long sleeved lace gown made fashion and wedding history as one of the most elegant bridal gowns of all time. It became an instant classic.


Princess Grace’s dress was made from 25 yards of silk taffeta & 125 year old Belgian rose point lace.

Helen Rose designed Grace Kelly couture wedding dress & it took 36 seamstresses to create her incredible bridal gown.

While many brides may look for other timeless design piece for their wedding style, I think just as many will go back to Grace Kelly and interpret her look in their own way. Grace Kelly was known above all for her cool beauty and impeccable taste, the bridal ensemble will be very important to a bride trying to emulate her style. Look for a wedding gown with classic lines.

Princess Grace's dress was a gift from MGM Studios (designed by Helen Rose). It consisted of 25 yards of silk taffeta and 100 yards of silk net, peau de soie, tulle, and 125 year old Belgian rose point lace. It took 36 seamstresses to create Grace Kelly's incredible bridal gown.

I was reading the history of her legendary wedding dress, Valenciennes lace was used for the skirt support and ruffled petticoat. Silk tulle, seed pearls and the taffeta skirt completed the iconic gown. With its' fitted bodice and full skirt, the dress was romantically beautiful , and remains the pinnacle of timeless good taste today.

I adore her divine style, and would love to help brides out there to add a sprinkle of her graciousness to their wedding dress. Even if you can’t afford to own a couture wedding dress, and your fiancĂ© is a prince only in your eyes, there are ways to indulge your royal wedding fantasies without a royal wedding budget. Simply let the principles of elegance, timeless beauty, and high fashion guide you as you plan your wedding.

Love for Balenciaga


I love this photo – refreshing colour & excellent choice of outfit for morning walk. (Photo credits to Purseblog.com)

My eyes are currently stuck with Balenciaga Giant City bag. After seeing the recent colour of “Blue Royal” in the Rose Gold collection, I’m so amazed, definite YES - an “It-Bag”, ohh…swoon. I finally took the plunge and ordered the Blue Royal Rose Gold Giant City from Balenciaga! The service was excellent - I placed a pre-order last week and the bag arrived at my doorstep in 2 days time.


Yay, it’s out now! This is for our lucky diva – it will arrive soon Winking smile



The ‘Blue Royal’ colour is perfect for all season!


Soft vintage crafted lambskin with front zip pocket and leather framed hand mirror.

If you’re looking for a bag that will not make you look out dated once the trend is over, you’d be hard-pressed to make a better choice than a Balenciaga City Bag. And naturally, all of Balenciaga’s bags are just about as lightweight as any you’ll find on the designer handbags and very easy to carry (a Balenciaga fan now!).


Light pink gold hardware - interesting characteristic of this hardware is that the grooves of the thimbles are darkened to achieve that "vintage" look.


Removable shoulder strap 8.2'' drop


All of Balenciaga’s bags are just about as lightweight as any you’ll find on the designer handbags.

Apart from being the most coveted bag, the Balenciaga City bag is known for their colourful array of dyed leathers, but black is just classic and time-honoured. Balenciaga was one of the first brands to start the huge craze in the handbag world. The Fendi’s and Gucci’s preceded, but the Balenciaga craze was entirely new.


Celebrities love Balenciaga!


Alessandra Ambrosio & daughter Anja Louise was spotted heading to a local park in Malibu.

People scouring the world for the best colour, the right seasons leather, and the perfect combination. Celebrities went into a Balenciaga-bag wearing frenzy as well, only making the buzz surrounding the brand grow more. If you could only buy bags from one designer for the rest of your days, which bags would you choose?

Last May event ;)

NST masquerade

WEVents Anniversary in New Straits Time - 13 June 2011

I’m trying to backdate event that I’ve attended last May in KL. It’s the only one that I can manage to squeeezee my time into and would like to “unmasked” the social event organised by working women volunteers.

The WEVents's first anniversary held at Royale Bintang Damansara hotel was a successful night affair for all ladies to socialise, build connections and make new friends. It’s an event for women to let their hair down after a hard day’s work and just be themselves!


Guests preparing for the next announcement, I was hungry at this hour…


Socialising time, wee hee you can’t see my face with that golden mask!

Congrats again to all the ladies behind WEVents, awesome job of organising the anniversary party. The WEVents was founded by Jeanisha Wan of J1 Consulting and the uniqueness of WEVents is that it is entirely run by women volunteers — women who hold day jobs elsewhere but contribute their time or resources after work hours to organise WEVents. It’s interesting to know when I first met few inspiring women that none of them get paid to organise WEVents. They freely volunteer their time or provide sponsorship in terms of products or services towards the events. It is all about having some fun after office-hours and at the same time, contributing and giving.


Networking again, this time we moved to another table Winking smile


Now I can see “Snow White” (Photo credits to WEVents)

It was an entertaining night, guests wearing their own masquerade mask and we had fun watching ‘playing pretend’ Audrey Hepburn, Moulin Rouge, Tinker Bell and Cinderella. In honour of her strong support towards WEvents, Winnie Loo, the founder and chief creative director of A Cut Above Group of Salons was announced as the honorary patron of WEvents during the anniversary party.

Great work everyone! I’m looking forward to be involved in the next charity event this October, helping to raise fund to build a hostel to house under privileged school going children of RAYYAJ, Tawau Sabah.
