No, I am not Ke$ha'ing it up.
I am simply happy from my little trip to Lah' Lah' Lands Global Business Park Bazaar that happened today at Petaling Jaya.
The ubiquitous word lah ([lɑ́] or [lɑ̂]), is a Malaysian colloquialism used at the end of a sentence, can also be described as a particle that simultaneously asserts a position and entices solidarity.
Lah Lah Land itself is sort of a hybrid of an online boutique, blog, fashion movers and shakers and event organisers. I found out about their fashion festival/bazaar through their blog here. And can I just say it was sooooo cool.
They hired out a big hall and got vintage boutiques, online fashion boutiques, fashion bloggers, designers, thrifters - pretty much anyone from the world of thrifting and vintage shopping to set up shop. And the people of Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya came and shopped :)
If I compared it, it was basically the Malaysian Suitcase Rummage, except in air conditioning and with amazing music blasting.
Vintage clothing is only just taking off here in Malaysia/Kuala Lumpur. So you can still get your hands on some very good quality stuff at bargain prices. Its like how they used to be. What I bought:
Vintage Military Envelope Purse (RM50 = AUD$20)
Adorable Leaf Earrings (RM5.90 = AUD$2)
Feather Earrings (RM8.90 = AUD$3)
I went with my beautiful cousin, where I got her a shirt and we tried on heaps of jewellery. And ended the day with some delicious cupcakes.
for more information on the event and its vendors.
1. Lah Lah Land: blog / facebook
2. Bee Yin: She had some real one of a kind jewellery and a look that is so unique (especially for a resident KL'er) and her blog shop here.
3. Small Porcupine: where I got my gorgeous, ridiculously priced earrings from.
4. Zikkos: They were such nice girls (they gave me a voucher code for their store YAY), and were rocking some of their pretty jewellery, loved the head bracelet.
Hopefully it was as much a success for you Lah Lah kids as it was for me. Cause I am sure that this should be a monthly event!
