Purple Leopard Jumpsuit – Ping Pong Post No. 3

Kremb de la Kremb Purple Leopard Jumpsuit 6
I might have squealed when I opened this month’s Ping Pong Post package and saw this purple leopard jumpsuit inside. It’s quite known that I love leopard (see here, here, here, and here), and I don’t discriminate against leopard in color (as seen here and here). Once I held it up, I will admit to a cringe when I saw the “S” tag indicating a small in size. I am not small. I have never been a small. I’m ok with that. So, I did have a moment of, “Oh gosh, I hope I can squeeze into this….” And I did, but it was literally a squeeze. Because the jumpsuit was a little small on me, I also lost the proper length for my legs. It was at that point that I decided to tie each one up in a pseudo bow. I actually just used hair ties to create the bows–similar to a hair bun. I have a ton of semi-formal events coming up from graduation and its dinner to prom. I styled this jumpsuit as if I was attending one of those events; hence the ostrich bag came out as did my satin bowed kitten heels. I wasn’t sure about the jewellery, so I went with my chunky silver chains and simple silver hoops. My Girls were a bit smushed, but it was kind of fun to be flat for once! (This might be too much info for you readers, but I couldn’t even fit a bra! Hopefully you can’t tell too much.)

Samantha, from Fake Fabulous, is the pro at mixing. Look how she added green into the mix: in her necklace and shoes. Then she accentuated with more shades of blue with the sash and cluth. She told Anna and I how freezing these pics were taken back in March, and I believe her. I bet the sleeveless duster did nothin’ but it sure does look classy.

Anna, from Anna’s Island Style, went with pattern mixing which is so fun! I love how she added a striped tee underneath. Plus all of her accessories from the rings she’s wearing to her bold shoes are such fun. She’s embraced the whimsical with success.

DIY with a Tailor: Off the Shoulder Dress

DIY with a Tailor 5

Sometimes I start a DIY and I realize I’m going to need some help. I think this is ok. I can sew–barely; I’m definitely a novice. But my lovely tailor in my neighborhood is amazing. And, she’s so sweet! I got started on this DIY and by the end realized when it came to the sewing, I’d need her help.

Let me back up: when I saw this long sleeve, crew neck dress in HM on sale for only $12, I instantly saw it as an off the shoulder dress for spring. At some point I’ll have to stop with all the off the shoulder styles, but for now, I’m deciding to go with what works, and this style works for me!

DIY with a Tailor 1

Here’s what I did to turn this long sleeve dress into an off the shoulder one:

1. Choose a long sleeve tee or dress.

DIY with a Tailor 9
This DIY could be done with a long sleeve tee or dress. It could even be done with a regular old tee shirt (see here for the easiest t-shirt DIY ever).

2. Put the item on, and using four pins, measure.

DIY with a Tailor 8

First, pin the point at which you would like the top to sit on your chest. (I went on the high side since I did not want to show cleavage while wearing this dress.)  Then, take another pin and mark where you plan to cut which would be folded over for the hem. I went about an inch higher than the top’s hemmed edge. Finally, mark the sleeve in the same way.

3. Now, cut across at the top pin.

DIY with a Tailor 7

DIY with a Tailor 6

Luckily for me, I was able to cut right along the line, so an item with stripes is highly recommendable. Otherwise, using a ruler, measure how far is needed to cut, take that measurement, and mark the garment across evenly. Then, cut across that line.

4. Hem and sew. Or, at this point, take it to a tailor.

Now, fold to the second pin mark, and hem. This is where I decided that my tailor would be better at sewing the hem. For this dress, I also hemmed the length–shorter just works better for me and my legs!

Now, tell me:

Have you embraced the off the shoulder trend? Do you intend to? I’ve definitely got more of this look coming. This spring going into summer, I can’t seem to get enough of it!

Basically, I decide to go with what works. While of course my family and the people in my life make me happy, there are also things–you know, stuff! For this post, I’m going to share some of the physical things in life that bring me joy.

    Jungle Love with Louella Odié in Borneo, Malaysia

    Jungle Love Louella Odié Bag

    *Ammendment to this post: When I went to return the bag to Louella Odié, they gave it to me!! Yay! I love it. Their bags are the epitome of luxe in my opinion, so I am thrilled to own this one. It’s like no other bag I have. Thank you Louella Odié!

    During our most recent travels during March’s spring break, Louella Odié loaned my a bag–a stunning, totally gorgeous bag! This is the Green Jungle Bag. The beautiful jungle canvas print has lovely tobacco leather casing. There’s a hidden outer pocket within that leather panel, and on the bottom there are golden studs to protect the surface. It’s a nice and roomy tote–perfect for traveling. And it’s so luxe, so it was the best bag for me when we stayed a night or two at a five star hotel! In this post, I’ve styled it three ways: for the hotel lobby, the resort, and the pool. Take a look at this Louella Odié Jungle Bag in the Borneo Jungle of Malaysia!

    *Similar to my last travels with Louella Odié, they are still offering the 15% discount code with KREMBDELAKREMB at the checkout.

    The Lobby

    White Shoulder 3

    I mixed the Green Jungle Bag with some equally jungle-y trousers. Why not? Patterns on patterns are completely acceptable. I even through in some leopard print shoes into the mix. And off the shoulder during a vacation is the perfect style!

    White Shoulder 1

    The Resort

    Louella Odié Army Green Romper 4

    When I saw this romper at Forever 21, I knew it would be the perfect outfit for our jungle trip. It comes off a bit Top Gun pilot–which I like. Plus, this dark army green pulls out that dark shade in the leaves of the Louella Odié Green Jungle Bag. This romper is surprisingly comfortable and the hassle for undoing a few buttons to use the restroom is worth it if I feel really good in an outfit!

    The Pool

    Louella Odie White Romper 1

    Here’s another off the shoulder number in white and yet another romper. With an elastic top this one is super easy to take off and on–which is a necessity poolside as a coverup. Plus, this romper has an elegant look to it even though it’s quite casual making this romper a great travel piece especially paired with the Jungle Bag.

    Matching the Bag

    This bag is stunning! At least in my opinion. How would you style it? Do you ever match your outfits to the bag? Or do you always match the bag to the outfit? I’m just curious. I can go either way. Sometimes the bag is the best feature–kind of like this Green Jungle Bag.

    *Remember: any Louella Odié bag is 15% with the code KREMBDELAKREMB.

    Mum’s the Word–A Mother’s Day Collaboration

    Kremb de la Kremb Mum 2

    My good friend Sheela is a genius at joining women bloggers together around the world. From The Fab 40s, to her Project Sister Act, to now this Mother’s Day post, she connects people. When she asked me if I’d want to write this post this Mother’s Day post with three other blogging mothers, my instant reply was, “Of course!” I’ve written about my mom and how she has greatly influenced my style many times on Kremb de la Kremb. Joanie, mom’s name, has always encouraged me to try something on because you never know. When I was asked to prom one week in advance, she helped me to design and make a dress! She give me her cowboy boots, and I can’t help but be so grateful for the many special gifts I’ve received when she gives us a Christmas in June when we return from overseas each school year. It’s safe to say that I refer to my mum often on Kremb de la Kremb.

    Kremb de la Kremb Mum 5
    And here I am looking just like her. It happens now: I see myself in the mirror or in a picture, and I think, “Wow, I look just like my mom!” Back when I was newly married, I cropped my hair–very Joanie style. I looked a lot like her then, but at that young, immature time, I didn’t want to look like her. Now, when I see myself resembling her so much, I feel proud and even a little pretty because that’s how I’ve always seen my mom, as such a pretty woman.

    Kremb de la Kremb Mum 6

    Joanie also has always had colorful style. I remember in the 80s when she was wearing pretty much the same color blocking of hot pink and turquoise seen today. Just my post from Wednesday, the Makeshift Jumpsuit, well that could have been her in 1985! She’s always been fashion forward ahead of any trends or even without trends. She’s an artist, which shows, but she’s also subtle. Something I have yet to master. There are so many, many-many articles of clothing I can remember and just absolutely loving on her. That nubby cream sweater that I’ve tried to copy, or her mumu that she made herself that I covet and secretly want her to hand down to me. My mom has always had amazing style–even the pictures from before I was exhibit an extremely stylish woman.

    Kremb de la Kremb Mum 3

    And here I am in a tunic that she also owns. There’s a style story behind it. My mother has always supported the international life that Kevin and I lead. She has also tried to visit us in almost each of our posts. She enjoys seeing our daily life overseas and demonstrated pride in the lifestyle that has formed for our family. During each visit, of course a little shopping occurs. When she was in Beijing, we were shopping in a Zara. She was at the cashier ready to buy this beautiful coral paisley tunic when she turned to me and asked, “Was there something you liked?” I told her yes, actually I really like this tunic. She promptly told me to go grab one. I remember that shopping excursion like it was yesterday. I love this tunic, I love shopping with my mom, and well, to continue with the gushiness, I love my mom!

    Kremb de la Kremb Mum 1

    There’s more! The coral necklace….that was hers made by a beautiful friend of mine while living in Venezuela. My mom bought it from this artisan friend and then a few years later gave it to me. The turquoise crucifix she gave to me this past summer before I left back for Hong Kong. The incredible, yet very old, shoes I’m wearing were purchased for my rehearsal dinner when I was married back in 1997. (Here’s the dress from the event to match!) Finally, it’s hard to see but I’m wearing a very special ring given to me by my mother’s mother, and the earrings I’m wearing were given to me after I became Gigi’s mother. Oh, the style stories go on and on!

    Enough…let’s take a look at the other three moms:

    Sheela

    Sheela Writes
    Here’s Sheela, mother, business woman, blogger, writer, and whom I always call Super Woman or even just plain ol’ Queen She. Sheela is also a daughter, and when you go read her post, you’ll be loving her even more for her honesty. And God bless her mom!

    Val

    Val
    Val is the mother of a little girl, she is a working mom, and she is the author of Val Around the Town. Val, a very classy dresser, attributes this class from her stylish mother. All I know is I kind of want her beautiful pearl bag! It’s amazing!!

    Rachel

    Rachel
    Rachel writes over at Garay Treasures. She’s a mother of four. The lovely spirit of giving is evident in Rachel’s outfit; it reminds me of my own story. Do go read Rachel’s post to find out about her coveted Michael Kors shoes…..

    Happy Mother’s Day!

    I say Happy Mother’s Day to my own mom, my mother-in-law, my sisters, my friends (married or not, with children or not). As a female gender we mother those we love in so many ways. So happy day to all of the women in my life and even to all women around the world!

    Makeshift Denim Off the Shoulder Jumpsuit

    Makeshift Jumpsuit 3
    Recently, I was admiring @shoppolkadotboutique’s Instagram feed when I became completely enamoured by this denim off the shoulder jumpsuit. It got met thinkin’…. Maybe I could make my own makeshift jumpsuit. I have the chambray off the shoulder top, and I have a denim pair of culottes; going monochromatic is a sure bet way to create an illusion of a jumpsuit. Granted mine isn’t as lovely as the one at Shop Polkadot Boutique, but it felt good to shop my own wardrobe and create a somewhat similar look. This could be done with a black top and wide legged black pants or even a white blouse and skinny jeans. Jumpsuits work because they provide a unified silhouette. Give it a try!

    Slip-on Sparkle or Heels?

    Makeshift Jumpsuit 8
    Because of my hip issues this year, I’ve had to really change my footwear. And oh, do I miss wearing heels! These Kate Spade sparkly numbers are by far my favorite pair. On my birthday in February, when I saw these slip-on, Kate Spade, Keds’ version of my beloved heels, I had to get them! Sparkle in any form–even of the casual variety, is going to make me smile! But just for fun, I paired them here with the makeshift jumpsuit. Which way do you like the outfit? With the casual slip-ons or the fancy heels?

    April Instagram @KrembdelaKremb: Vol. 16

    April Insta Collage

    In April I took heed of my Insta famous friend @SheelaGoh and did whatever she told me to do in order to hopefully grow my Instagram account. First, she instructed me to clean up my feed–meaning keep it to style and anything nonstyle related get rid of it. This was a mammoth job as used to have over 3800 images! First, I downloaded them all so I do have a backup, and I started a family account where I have started to grow past family moments @TheKrembsFamily. Then, she had me evaluate who I follow and try to be discerning in this area. Finally, Sheela instructed me to start engaging by commenting on other people. This last bit is the hardest part to keep up with as obviously life tends to happen! At any rate, I’ll do whatever she tells me as I witness her following continue to grow. I’d like the same to happen for me! Oh, the last thing she mentioned was to continue with color. She advised that my community like that. What do you think?

    1. This was my most popular picture. I do love blue! And the off-the-shoulder trend really works for my sloping collarbone! (The post from this pic will be coming to the blog soon….)

    2. This pic was from our Spring Break vacation. I love it when I get a family picture in, and this one is a good one!

    3. I had a Marilyn Monroe moment is the Little Red Dress that was meant to be!

    4. In May, I made a serious attempt at getting back to DIY posts–even asking you my readers if you like them and want me to keep them up. The answer was YES! These were a pair of black heels that I turned to a Miu Miu ribbon heel style.

    5. With Coachella hitting all the feeds of ever social network, I got inspired to embellish one of my bandana scarves.

    6. I patched my denim shirt–every time I walked into Zara I was like, I can do this to that old denim shirt of mine!

    7. On Instagram I receive such style inspiration, and in turn I become a bit of a copy catter! This colorful, crocheted tunic was spotted on Carmen Gimeno, and I had to have it. Luckily, I had a gift certificate from my dear friend Maureen that she gave me back in February for my birthday, so I was able to get it from Zara!

    8. Another colorful, 50s inspired pic came from this post taken at our little hotel in Hua Hin. Sometimes with me, outfits are made just to match the wall!

    9. This is probably my favorite pic from this past month. My good friend Weda (@theshortestfuse) took it for me. She’s been my Insta buddy since we started on Instagram together back in 2010 while living and working together in Beijing. We have many a selfie taken together for every time she came in to the library.

    Are you on Instagram? It truly is my favorite social media platform. Let’s follow each other! You can find me here: @krembdelakremb

    DIY: Miu Miu Ribbon Heels

    DIY Miu Miu Heels 10

    The other day while I was at the doctor’s office which is actually in a very fancy mall. As I was window shopping on my way through, I looked into Miu Miu’s window and was enchanted by the lovely heels I saw. As I kept stargazing, I realized, Wait! I could totally make these. Again, I will repeat my DIY mantra: I only conduct easy DIYs, and this one was exactly just that. Super. Simple. I quite like how I jazzed up this pair of heels, and with a very versatile addition like this, I can swap out different ribbons to accentuate my outfits! Let’s just say it pays to window shop! Right?!

    DIY Miu Miu Heels 6

    DIY: MIU MIU RIBBON HEELS

    1. GATHER THE SUPPLIES.

    DIY Miu Miu Heels 1
    Four main items are needed for this DIY: are a pair of heels (any color would do), a leather hole puncher, 2 grommets, and some ribbon. Also, I used glue, a pin to clean my leather hole puncher, and a pen to widen my punctured hole. Next time I visit my local craft store, I plan to go wild with the ribbon and buy all sorts of colors.

    2. PUNCH A HOLE IN THE SIDE OF EACH SHOE.

    DIY Miu Miu Heels 2This was the easiest part. Just make sure to punch the outside of the heel and try to get close to the same spot for each shoe.

    3. INCREASE THE HOLE WIDTH.

    DIY Miu Miu Heels 3The hole puncher I used could only make a 4.5 mm hole at its largest setting. So I grabbed a writing pen and stuck it through the hole, enlarging it bit by bit.

    4. ADD GLUE AND GROMMET AND PRESS.

    Add glue to the entire hole are and then add the grommet. Then press with your fingers for about a minute. This glue dries quickly–which is nice, but it means you need to act fast.

    5. LET THE GLUE DRY AND THEN CLEAN UP THE SQUIGGLIES.

    DIY Miu Miu Heels 4The glue will dry pretty well within 15-20 minutes. Don’t worry about being messy with this glue. It easily cleans up with a light rub of the fingers. The squiggles come right off. Plus, the ribbon will be going through the grommet, so if there is glue in the hole, it will never be seen.

    6. INSERT THE RIBBON, THEN FOOT, AND TIE!

    DIY Miu Miu Heels 12The shoe is finished! Just add the ribbon, put on the shoe, and tie the ribbon around your ankle. Next time, when I go to get more ribbon, I will make my strands longer so that I can wrap around one more time and tie a proper bow.

    DIY Miu Miu Heels 7

    DIY Miu Miu Heels 8

    HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY!

    There’s no way I would be able go all day in a pair of heels. That type of shoe has unfortunately not made an appearance in my work day–yet! What I actually wore with this outfit was a pair of black converse. But! If I had it my way, I would have worn my DIY Miu Miu ribbon heels all day long.

    A Lace-Up Shirt on a Busty Figure

    Laced Shirt 1

    I have been noticing all of these cute lace-up shirts with the deep “V.” I never thought to try one figuring my busty figure would peek right through. I was pleasantly surprised by this striped version: yes, there is a bit of my cleavage sneaking through, but the rope lacing alongside the stripes offers a nice distraction. So while I do have cleavage showing here, it doesn’t feel overt. The moment I tried this top on, I was like, “Yes! I can wear a lace-up shirt!!” This proves it’s always best to try something one just like my mom always said. Pairing this sailor top with white stitched, front pocket shorts, feels like the perfect nautical summer outfit for me. And oh, I do love a little nautical–always have, always will!

    If you are like me and want to try out a lace-up shirt but avoid flaunting your cleavage, I’ve found some affordable options for you from Forever 41–op, I mean Forever 21!

    My nautical rope lace-up shirt is from the Forever 21 in Hong Kong. Aside from the one I’m wearing I found this busy black and white checked one will not allow a cleavage sneak peek; while this gorgeous coral cold shoulder doesn’t allow a sneak peek at all. This long black flowy one makes for the perfect swimsuit cover-up! Then avoid cleavage altogether when there’s a cami underneath this crochet version. And here’s a sure way to avoid any sort of sneak peeks with a party in the back!

    The Fab 40s in Pleats

    Kremb de la Kremb Pleats 9

    The moment Diane from Fashion on the 4th Floor declared this month’s styling theme every one of The Fab 40s got a little nervous–including me. Pleats, that’s what we were to style. The moment I saw pleats I thought to myself: Oh! Pleats look awful on me–they just enhance my ponchy ponch. I instantly started imaging the pleats on a pair of khaki trousers or even pleats on a midi skirt. Pleats at the waist add a an inch or two–something I try hard to avoid. It wasn’t until I thought out of the box, much like my companions below, that I realized pleats come in all sorts of ways. Take for instance this lovely handmade skirt I purchased on my travels through Lianjiang, China. This skirt is patched together from many pieces of fabric and all those folds, I mean pleats, add to the intricacies of this item. I love this pleated piece hand made from Chinese village women. It’s precious to me.

    Diane called this theme. Look how whimsical and fun her top is. It’s almost like it’s a skirt top–the neck looks barely there. Because of her amazing shoulders, this neck and line look stunning on her sleek, athletic frame.

    Funky Forty

    Yvonne is our guest blogger this month. She writes Funky Forty, and basically, she’s a gal after my own heart. I feel like I could wear exactly what she is wearing. Or at least I would try to. I would probably ruin this chic look though with too much color somehow. To me, Yvonne just rocks cool. Her outfit and the way she has styled pleats reminds me of my sister–whom I always try to emulate.

    Fashion Should be Fun

    Dawn Lucy’s lace and leather are spot on. On the one hand, she’s edgy, but then on the next she’s got a whole Audrey Hepburn vibe going on. Do note–that’s a hosiery tattoo! I never knew!!

    Fake Fabulous Pleats

    Fake Fabulous

    Oh Samantha! This top is so angelic. It’s beautiful. And then spun with a little red and blue jeans, it reminds me of a modern day Marilyn Monroe. What a stunning and unusual top that’s just really, really pretty.

    Sheela Goh Pleats

    Sheela Writes

    I’ve begun to call this woman Queen She, and by this picture, you can tell why. Sheela just rocks all coolness. From the heels, to the skinnies, to the leather on top, Sheela displays pleats of an ethereal type with this top/dress. And the color, in blush, well it’s beautiful.

    A Pocket Ful of Polkadots

    Preppy cool in mint for Jennie. I love how proFRESH she is. This is a flirty outfit, one made for twirling. And with the collar turned up, Jennie shows just how to be chic.

    Mary Pleats

    Curly Byrdie Chirps

    I’m beginning to realize Mary has a covetable collection of dresses. This one with colorful poppies is another winner, and the halter neckline works on just about every figure. Mary is stunningly statuesque here and the colors are so spring filled.

    For me, I chose my black crop top with laced back alongside my sleeveless denim jacket. I can’t seem to stop wearing my evil eye earrings–they’ve been on serious repeat lately. I opted for my Star Wars Vans because they match exactly to a tee. It couldn’t be helped. I grabbed my leopard backpack at the last minute. I’m not sure it totally works, but leopard goes with anything in my book. Finally, I wore tons of blue mascara and an orange lippy–playing matchy matchy makeup with my skirt. This happened to be a very real outfit that I wore to work last week. My friend Norbyah took the pics after school right outside my apartment building.
