Style Sunday: Cape Town
|Cape Malay Quarter by Vincent Mounier|
I haven't done a Style Sunday post in aaaages. I can assure you that you aren't missing out on too much. I'm quite the simpleton these days. By the way, no, I'm not in Cape Town, though I really wish I were because it's in my list of top 10 cities to visit. It's just that this outfit I wore yesterday is a fusion of Malay and African influences. The maxi dress is from FashionValet.net and it's by Pink Jambu, a Malaysian brand which incorporates batik into its designs, and the hijab I donned looks like an African turban except I've styled it in such a way so the hijab would provide more coverage. The combination of the two cultures reminded me of Cape Town because of the famous Cape Town Malay quarters called Bo-Kaap.
Apart from the cutting and colour, what I like most about this dress is the quality of the cotton material.
Many of you have asked me if FashionValet ships internationally and the answer is a big fat YES! So it's free shipping around Malaysia, just in case you didn't know already. For South East Asian countries, it's free for purchases above RM 500 or a flat rate of RM 30 for purchases less than RM 500. Good news for Australians - there's a flat rate of RM 50 for all deliveries towards your way! That's less than AUD $20. More shipping info available here, alright? For any other countries, just drop the friendly and efficient FV team an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and they'd be more than happy to help.
Hope you guys had a great weekend!
