Pink Blocks

Hello and salam dear readers. :) I wasn't a fan of pink when I grew up. My favourite colour has always been blue but pink has slowly grown on me without me realising it. Sometimes, we don't even realise but we slowly fall for a certain colour. The more we say we're not into it, the more we love it! It was people around me who made me realise that I've been wearing a lot of pink recently (even though sometimes I'm still in denial of that fact) Hehe.

Anyways, this is one of the looks I wore for the photoshoot and interview with a magazine recently. They asked me to wear one look which I would wear for raya this year, so I chose to mix and match aere's CARINA Top, the VELA Skirt and the aere x dUCk scarf all in pink. Eventhough the pieces can separately be worn with other pieces to create casual looks or looks to be worn for work. I love it when one piece can be worn with other pieces to create different looks. All we need to do is just be creative :)

Kneok quickly took these shots in between the photoshoot with the magazine that Sunday. You can read about the shoot and see the other looks I wore for the shoot at Silver URSA and  Not Everything is Black or White. I also posted an almost similar one-colour look in yellow at Ray of Sunshine.

In the Cosmos

I cannot be more thankful and happier by all the support that I've been receiving so far. Last Monday I blogged about aere's features in Malaysian Newspapers aere in the Sunday News and The Sun on Pastel Dreams and this Monday aere is featured in Kosmo! The feeling is really out of this world. In the cosmos! :D

I started setting up and working on aere in June 2014 last year, and I can't believe that it has been one year. So many exciting things has happened and of course there are many  challenges as well. But, I am truly grateful by all the support that I have from my readers in the blog, on my Instagram, dearest customers, aere's partners and stockists, my team and of course family and friends. It has really been amazing. ALHAMDULILLAH. All praises to the Creator for blessing me with all the blessings.

The reporters from Kosmo were some of the interviewers who were there interviewing me and Vivy Yusof after the after aere's fashion show at the Gaya Koleksi Raya 2015 and I love the writeup by the. It's so accurate and close to everything that we answered on that day. If you want to read or see a video of the fashion show just go to : aere Fashion Show 2015 : Part 1aere Fashion Show Part 2 : Full Video, and White Shine.

I was so surprised that they put a photo of me wearing a full look wearing pieces from  the current aere x dUCk collection on the cover of their Stailo inserts too. Thank you Kosmo! for the cover story on aere x dUCk :) It's a photo the husband kneok took of me as posted in my blog last week Not Everything is Black or White.

I took some photos and scanned it for my own records as well as for you to read if you didn't manage to get a copy. You can also read the one online at Inspirasi Piet Mondrian di aere dan dUCk at Kosmo! Online.

Silver URSA

How was your weekend? I had a lovely one spending some quality time with the husband, my parents and my in-laws. In between all that I was busy preparing for aere's latest release today :) aere has released more designs in more colours today at all stockists. Apart from that there's a special promo going on too since Raya is coming up soon :) If you follow aere's IG you would know what's going on hehe.

Anyway, in this post I'm wearing one of aere's designs released today. The URSA Top. I wanted a top that's simple and minimalist, feels exclusive, looks elegant and sophisticated as well as something I can wear with anything and everything in my wardrobe. (Skirts and pants mostly) Other than the fabric and the simplicity of it, my favourite feature of this top is the unique zipper cuffs which gives off a pleated effect when it's partially fastened. (Maybe I'll share in another post) :)

One of the benefits of running my own label is that I get to try on the samples way before it's released for customers to buy. If I'm not happy with it then I won't proceed to produce it but if I'm happy with it then I get to produce it for it to be released. I must say that this URSA Top is something that's fast becoming one of my favourite top. I've worn day and night because it is suitable to be worn for all occasions.

Anyway, in my post Not Everything is Black or White I blogged about the interview and photoshoot for a magazine I did awhile ago. I also shared a different look which I wore on that day. The look I'm sharing  in this post was the first look I wore on that day. I paired aere's URSA with my favourite PYXIS Skirt and aere x dUCk dUCkscarves. I've previously blogged about how the PYXIS is adjustable and can be changed from an A-Line Skirt, to a mermaid or a flared skirt just by adjusting the two sippers at the side. See my post Winds of Glad Tidings to see how I wore the PYXIS in a different colour in a different way.

I wanted to create different looks with the different aere pieces from the current collection and this was what I came up with. A combination of silver gray  white and lavender :) Colours of the aere x dUCk print. Check out aere's webpage to browse the whole collection and see the different colours of the aere x dUCk's print as top, bottoms and dresses. 

Till my next post, have a productive Monday and a blessed week!
