Life + TTR CNY previews ๐ŸŽ‰

Hello friends!

Itโ€™s been such a rainy week. And while I love the no more than 27 deg C temperatures which are extremely rare, these rainy days make taking outfit photos SUCH. A. CHORE.

Already lost count of the times we repeat the same outfit for two consecutive days just to get the shots.

First world woes, really.

So many fires to fight at work recently.

Yesterday was especially filled with shitty people and shitty things happening.

There was this point where I felt disappointed. And angry. And defeated.

Then I texted some of my dearest friends whom I know would understand better than anyone else.

And I also texted my dearest ZL who probably couldnโ€™t understand as much because weโ€™re in entirely different industries but despite being swarmed with work, immediately offered to bring me out for dinner after he was done fighting his own fire.

Through the tough times in life, I know these people would be the ones there to provide support. โœจ

Didnโ€™t resolve the problems at hand entirely, but this was how I felt after launching into a tirade over dinner and having formed fresh perspectives after hearing from the few people I ranted to.

I still feel conflicted having to do the things I hate to do. But just gotta not take everything so personally I guess. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

TTR is a very big part of my life but taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture, work is still just work. And I need to learn to treat it as such in some cases.

So yepp, there you have it. Life as a boss is not always a bed of roses! Okay maybe life as a boss is. But not life as an entrepreneur.

Some days, itโ€™s just….

Exhausting.

I didnโ€™t even realise itโ€™s been a week since I last posted anything here!!

But enough of the not-so-fun parts of life! Iโ€™ve picked my 8 winners! ๐ŸŽŠ

And the winners are –

@joannelummz
@girlyting
@custardpau
@joyvelle
@jazreelsoh
@pehradise
@wwcww
@feebsxz

๐ŸŽ‰

Honestly it was quite hard to choose. I had a lot of fun reading through all the comments, itโ€™s like CNY came early!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ

But anyway, I have decided also to add on a BONUS TTR โ€œangbaoโ€ for the 8 winners above!

Each of you will receive a packet of 8 angbaos + $10 TTR voucher to shop your CNY clothes! Hehe. ๐Ÿ˜‡

HUAT AH EVERYBODY!!

Oh yes, drop me an email at joyce@thetinselrack.com with your dayre handle, name, mailing details please!! ๐Ÿ˜˜

When the train of your dress is too comfortable… ๐Ÿ˜‚ I was just sitting there minding my business when she happily walked over and plopped her fluffy fat butt onto my dress. LOLLLLL.

She really made herself comfortable. Hahaha. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Hereโ€™s a closer look at the dress where Iโ€™m not sitting on the floor and thereโ€™s no cute lil doggy obstructing your view. Hehe.

This is a very, very luxurious dress!

We used so much fabric for this to create the structured and poofy fishtail hem effect.

I wanted the skirt to hold up well on itโ€™s own and look grand, rather than our usual swishy hem style.

And because itโ€™s not the usual kind of soft flowy fabric which we usually go for, we spent more effort than usual while picking the fabric.

First, the florals must be pretty and I was very insistent on having watercolour florals!

Secondly, it must be structured and โ€œstiffโ€ enough to create the silhouette which I wanted for this dress.

And lastly, it must heavy but not heavy enough to affect the poofy-ness of the skirt.

Lol. IKR. So picky.

But Iโ€™m glad we put in the effort to hunt down this fabric cause it makes such a pretty statement piece!

As you can see, this is not going to be your everyday dress.

This is the occasion dress.

The dress you wear for your birthday/anniversary/celebration/photoshoot!

This is how dramatic it looks when you do a swirl in it.

I LOVE IT.

Itโ€™s so heavy that we had some trouble lugging the stocks over to the store yesterday, but itโ€™s all worth it. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

Also comes in white! โ˜บ๏ธ

The fishtail hem is just.

๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

This pretty lace mermaid skirt will also be making its rounds this weekend!

There were a few different colour variations we could do for this lace pattern, in the end we chose to place the lace over a dark inner lining for a more contrasting effect. ๐Ÿ˜

If you want a more toned down version, we also have this skirt in pure white lace and pure black lace. Those are more versatile when it comes to matching but I think this colour combination is definitely more unique and less common!

Brb off for my first gym session of 2018! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

Florals have always been a big part of our CNY collections.

Iโ€™m very pleased with our repertoire of floral prints this year! Each of them are very unique and I love the colour palettes!

Thereโ€™re too many pretty items these few weeks… I canโ€™t even keep up with the previews. ๐Ÿ˜‚ But Iโ€™ll keep at it!

I love how the orange blooms pop against the black base!!

We manufactured this print in two colours and used them on two designs.

Rompers are always a crowd fave for CNY because… can anyhow sit on the floor when you play ban luck. Hahaha. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Okay sorry BRB again cause gonna go grab a quick dinner with ZL!

I love it when I get to see him two days in a row, weekends notwithstanding. ๐Ÿค—

I kept white for this romper! And black for the other maxi dress this print comes in. โ˜บ๏ธ

Been wearing this romper for two days in a row and only managed to take my outfit shots today LOL.

It was drizzling but Iโ€™m glad we got it over and done with!! Donโ€™t think I can wear it without washing for another day gosh. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I really cannot decide whether white and black so I randomly decided to keep one each for the two designs we manufactured them in! Heh. ๐Ÿ™‚

Btw, this is a โ€œfakeโ€ wrap design. It actually has a back zip so the wrap is not adjustable!

Maxi dress is adjustable tho. I know I keep talking about the dress but until now no pictures. Lolol.

Show you guys in a bit!

Tadah~

The maxi dress! โœจ

Unlike the romper, this dress comes with an adjustable wrap design.

๐Ÿ™‚

The back of the dress is more like a maxi for me. The model is really tall (178cm ๐Ÿ˜จ) so it looks more like a midi on her!

The minute I put this dress on, I told @jongsy that Iโ€™m surprised at how absolutely flattering it is. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

I hardly am a fan of sleeved dresses but I am especially taken with this piece!

Itโ€™s a very easy to wear piece – shows enough skin but at the same time covers up at all the right places. ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Definitely gonna be repeating this dress very often!!

What I like about this dress and the romper is that they are extremely casual pieces which can be worn through and beyond the CNY season! โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

More reason to hog them in my wardrobe, haha.

With that, Iโ€™m done with this weekโ€™s previews!

If you see anything you like, pop by to our store at Orchard Gateway #02-17A to try them on? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Restocks will be done more often now that weโ€™re nearing CNY!

If youโ€™re located in KL, we also have a pop up store at Paradigm Mall Level UG Lot 45. ๐Ÿ˜‡ New arrivals in Malaysia will be updated at the same time as Singapore, except we have a couple of designs which are exclusive to SG.

Will probably be dropping by the store tomorrow, see you if I see you! ๐Ÿ’‹

And yesss weโ€™re still giving away these pretty angbaos (both in store and online) with every purchase! ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ
