I’m not big on accessories as I find it chunky, choking and itchy at most times. I prefer something that feels invisible yet look amazing, if I really have to accessorize.
I might put on the odd earring when I ovulate and that’s about it.
But funny thing is that I can still buy and buy non-stop. I need therapy. ( Most recent damage was at two bazaars over the weekend. The ASD Birthday Bash and TwoMADS Bazaar. Baaaaad. )
I’ve seen Soak Republic around for quite sometime as they are one of the more different accessories blog shop in the scene. You know, not the typical whimsical charm necklace/bracelet or dainty danglies that you’ll find from most accessories blog shop.
One of the owners of Soak Republic approached me to review a few of her accessories – she basically asked me to have fun with her entire bag of goodies until I get sick of it. It also helped that her name is Pei Shan as well! ( That’s my Chinese name by the way, you ignorant people. )
Two Saturdays ago was a supposed lunch at Subang Parade with Mel, Mun Teng, V-ng Yan, Liss and Abby. But because of their busy, busy lives, it was only me, Mel, Mun Teng and V-ng Yan. And because of MY busy life, I only saw Mun Teng and V-ng Yan for like 20 minutes. I had a flight to Terengganu to catch. Ahem, more on that later.
Mel pours out the treasures from the paperbag.
Accessorize your laksa!
The rings at Soak Republic are more chunky than dainty. Perfect for girls who are not really into the whole cutesey, petite, princess kind of look!
Wear to the casinos in Genting. Confirm win one. That’s my half boiled egg by the way.
I made Mel model a bit for me. Have to make use of friends like that one. I know I mentioned that Soak Republic’s style does not really embrace girly princess fluffiness, but I think a bit of floral can do so much! I’ve been wearing this hairband for over a week now and it feels light as a feather and it keeps my hair in place! Soak Republic made this themselves. Some of their stuff are bought from suppliers but like this hairband, you can get it custom made. I hope I can get them to make this in another colour! Though black is very classy!
Mel and V-ng Yan! Wish I could’ve stayed long to chat. School commitments suck.
Mun Teng going all out with some of the rings from my pile.
See what I mean by different? I love it because the rings are so quirky!
I’ve got a stack of name cards to give out as well. 😛
See how well my hair is kept in place with the hairband?
Usually my kissing photos with Mun Teng is of her kissing me. She has changed. 🙁
V-ng Yan playing with the bendable necklace/bracelet. You can basically form it into any weird shape and wear it on your wrist or your neck. This piece just screams individuality.
Love their ribbon-linked bracelets!
There’s also the lilac snake skin bracelet that I adore!
I was on my way to fetch my classmate from Pudu and got caught in the infamous KL jams. 🙁
Yaya nice sunlight, make up, etc, usual excuses for excessive camwhoring, k shadap kthxbai.
The hairband under the sunlight. I really really like the hairband. <3 <3 <3
Like one of those annoying kid ‘princess’ prancing around and acting cute in chinese new year music videos right?
More photos of Soak Republic’s stuff to follow suit in my posts regarding my community oral health research posting to Terengganu! I survived Terengganu. It’s actually not bad at all and the people are so amazingly friendly, we just can’t get over it. 🙂 Though I wish they brought us to mental hospitals to see how the dentists treat patients there, like how the Johor group managed to see. *grumble, grumble*
But I’ll be putting Johor down as my first choice for my government posting when I graduate. 🙂 You know why lah kan. 😉
