Hello ladies!!! I’m back for a while in Hell-cember to do a special collaboration project with Malaysia’s very well known brand, ZALORA. I’m very honoured when they offered me (yes this weird blogger) to do a one-time collaboration project with them. Long story short, I went blank and my friends are the people who went crazily excited for this opportunity.
When you talk about fashion, some of you would go diva, some would say ‘’I don’t know how to dress’’ and there’s the people who would go out with a pair of yoga pants and sweatshirts (believe me, I’m that person although I have a very lethal criticism about how people should dress. I’m very ironic by the way). Fashion is very tiring as it is know for having a fast growth (and cycle) with changing trends every season. It cannot be denied that women tend to experiment and hallucinate with their fashion looks, thinking they would look great but instead it turned out to be a major NO-NO (been there done that!!!). And that ladies, the disasters were mostly seen during the 90’s when the fashion industry was booming with new trends, crazy ideas and whimsical designs.
So, in this entry I will list some of the fashion don’t and recommend you guys with something I would say, elegant and demure.
I know it’s weird when this came from a goth but heyyyyy, I’m a stylish goth *wink*.

1) Bandana halters.
I don't think in 2014 bandana would still be a thing in fashion especially when it comes to clothing. Like there are so many other materials out there, so get out of the house and get some proper halters that can be used in many occasions, from partying to dinner date.
Chiffon Draped Top | Floral Crop Top
2) Retro wind breaker & starter jacket
You are not a rapper and when it's raining, people use the umbrella. I don't think this waterproof 90's boyband jacket is stylish in 2014. If you still own this thing, keep it in you closet and use em' for next year's halloween or anytime you're hiking in a tropical forest (I did that before.)
Leopard Print Blazer | Collarless Tweed Biker Jacket
3) Denim floral block dress
Floral and denim blocking is a risky fashion statement as in a certain way, the combination would magically work but in other times they would NO-GO together. If you like the outfit blocking trend, pick the dresses that I've recommended instead. Material blocking with PU leather/Pleather works with mostly everything except denim.
You know wat, just keep the denim to your jeans -.-
Neo Prenne Panel Fit And Flare Dress | PU Cut In Fit And Flare Dress
4) Mom’s denim pencil skirt
NO NO NO NO NO...
Rose Gold Sequin Pencil Skirt | Embellished Pencil Skirt
5) Dress with jeans
Anyone can be seen in the streets when women paired their jeans with dresses. Like wtf???This is definitely an outfit match appears weird to the eye, thus, women should stick the jeans with a top and the dress as it is (or wear a pair of black stockings if you are not comfortable of showing your legs.
Lace Fit And Flare Dress | Footless Stockings
6) One size bubble stretchable shirts
Although this is an innovative invention (and I may get it for myself too), but it doesn't really fit into the fashion world. Yes you can wear it but please not in public. Come on ladies, just buy proper clothes that fits your size. Companies sell tops in different sizes for a reason ok babes...
Eyelet Kimono Sleeved Tee | Lace Hi-Lo Peplum
7) Excessive ruffled-puffy shirts
Get out of townnnnnnn.
Ruffles and puffy sleeves should be minimized and only one at a time.
Poly Chiffon Ruffle Dress | Sleeveless Ruffled Chiffon Blouse
8) Hair scrunchy & Butterfly clips
OMG I swear I got tons of these when I was a kid. It was dope before but now, just let the kids to wear these because they're kids. Let them make themselves looks cute and funny.
You ladies, get demure hair jewels, you need to find men now not play dates.
p/s: but I would still scrunchy-up my bun though. LOL I don't care.
Gems Drape Headband | Set Of 3 Hair Bands
9) Skin colored legging
Ahaaa the skin colored leggings. This is a universal trick for the lazy-shavin' ladies. I tried wearing this before, but it failed, people can see my hairy legs (LOL!). So I gave up, I bought the opaque leggings. I live happily since.
You guys should do the same thing too.
Basic Leggings | Basic Phyton Leggings
10) Chain wallet
Only kids would use this.
Embellished Hand Clutch
Glitter Glam Flat Clutch
11) Foam platform sandals
I nearly bought this many many moons ago because sometimes it's nice to feel tall but then I think, ''better not..''
Criss Cross Straps Sandals
12) Dark lip liner
Wise words from me, make-up should blend with your face, not contradicting.
Glitz Lipglaze Set
Rouge Artist Lip Palette Coral
