I take clothes, shoes, accessories etc seriously, so I would never lie to you guys just for advertisement purposes. There are many brands and styles that I like, but nothing has really hit home until I found Mimpikita. Having the meaning “Our Dream” in English, Mimpikita is a company formed by 3 sisters.

I was invited to watch their photoshoot today, so I went. And as usual, bagged some clothes home too.

Nurul, the owner, and her photographer HAHA

It all started by reading this blog. The owner emailed me about something, and at the end she introduced me to her own line. I clicked on the website, and that was it. I was hooked.

Their creations are what I truly love and I would say that they are so so so talented. Feminine, elegance, class; they have pictures of Audrey Hepburn around their shop, so I’m guessing their ideas are inspired by her.

What’s interesting is that they don’t forget their roots. A lot of their clothes have that Malay sweetness about them, and touches of traditional-ness (whatever, I’m creating my own word here!). They are especially good in traditional-wear and modernising them to suit our current times.

I feel good buying their clothes because these ladies are so so nice and so down-to-earth. We click so well that now, my sister and I have become good friends with them. We’re even working together now, because they also own a family architecture firm. Construction and architecture – vital relationship. And I can’t believe it all started by an email.

I could go on and on but I’ll let their clothes speak for themselves.

Let’s pretend I’ve ironed them nicely. And that I’m wearing an appropriate top underneath.

They also sell accessories and other things in their shop, so it’s best that you pay them a visit to see for yourself.
