Hello you awesome fluffy people. It has been decades since I posted an outfit on my blog. Well two weeks to be exact. The weather finally cleared up and hopefully it will stay that way for a while. It is the monsoon season here in Malaysia and things can get pretty rough with rain for weeks on end.
Halloween is also here and even though it really isn't a big deal in my country, it is a fun holiday nevertheless, so Happy Halloooo-weeen to all you cute, scary people of the world. Anyways, being caged in the house thanks to the rain, I have been doing some reading online and thought I would share some of my finds with you this week.
This isn't particularly a happy post, but somewhat a rebut towards some nasty things I have seen online bashing fashion bloggers and the like. I am definitely someone who receives criticism fairly well, as long as it is kept PG-rated. Being a YouTube and blogger personality, I understand the consequences one has to go through when it comes to feedback, hate and all that jive, but how much is too much?

How is it that we feel comfortable or justify the fact that we are emotionally and intentionally hurting someone else when we post things like, 'she should get a new face' or 'she should dress her age' for the entire internet population to see? If there is a rule book on how you should look or dress this day in age, I am pretty sure I missed out because, heck, I would rather look like a 'tween' in my mid twenties than sacrifice my personal taste in style.

So, to celebrate that diversity, I revisited my childhood with today's outfits. These handmade outfits by ClosetMino reminded me so much of my childhood when mum played dress up with me for tea and holidays. I remember having cute dresses, shoes and accessories to go and she has inspired me in so many ways with the way I dress today. I also brought along my favorite Mr Bean teddy bear for the shoot, just because. Rebuttal ? Maybe.
What do you think about internet critiques? While some make sense, others go overboard. I would love to know your thoughts. Also, I raise my glass to all you women and men alike who aren't afraid to dress, look and write different. Viva La Tween. LOL!
I wish you all an awesome weekend.
Be Part Of The Fluff!
