Show Off Your Shoulders

March is one of those strange months in Hong Kong when you don’t know how-to-dress; one day is warm, the next will be rainy and cold(ish). At this point of the year, I always feel a bit stuck in my-old-boring-grey-winter-clothes. On the other hand, it feels odd to completely transit into full-on-summer-outfits (my-pale-legs are so-not-ready-for-it!). To … Continue reading

THE NEW DENIM

Denim has always had a special place in my heart. In a weird way, it was the catalyst for my love for the fashion industry. My first job ever started on the floor in a small boutique carrying Italian denim brands like Replay and Diesel. I got my first job here in Hong Kong as product … Continue reading

Radiant Orchid – 2014 Color of the year

While visiting La Rinascente beauty department in Milan two years ago, I feel head over heels in love with Tom Ford’s Violet Blond make-up series. I’m typically quite traditional in my make-up colour choices and do not experiment too much. That was until the talented make-up artists at Rinascente lured me to get a full-make-over – lips, eyes and … Continue reading

Swedish Style: The Streets of Stockholm

When I started think about different topics for the Swedish Style blog series for Shopdescreateurs, the first thing that came to mind was street style and denim (don’t miss the interview with Dr.Denim here).

The Cartoon Comic Trend

After witnessing the cartoon-comic-trend rise from rags to riches – starting at the streets and working its way up to the runway – I finally gave in and bought myself a Forever 21-budget-grey-washed down Minnie tee. I was thinking twice about it been though. Growing up in the 80s, I had my fair share of of … Continue reading

SWEDISH STYLE – PLAYFUL, CLEAN & TIMELESS ACCESSORIES

As a full-time working employee and a semi-professional blogger, one of my day-to-day challenges is to dress appropriately for work as well as for evening dinners and events. Like many other Hong Kong gals, I always carry an “evening emergency kit” with make-up essentials, heels and accessories to quickly transform into evening mode. Experience has taught me that … Continue reading

On my mind: Quirky Shoes

There is no secret that I have a love-hate relationship with high-heels. With my 1.56-petite(love how all french words sound chic and beautiful)-centimeters, I’ve had a pair of heels on my feet as long as I can remember. Love in the sense that there is nothing more captivating (and what can do wonder for your … Continue reading

On my mind: high-waisted retro bikini

While going through the last of my grandmother’s belongings, I found a box full with gorgeous vintage photos of her. Looking through them all, I particularly feel in love with a two photos where she is wearing a white-high-waisted-retro-bikini and balconette top – both iconic for 40s-50s swimwear fashion. I’ve expressed my love for my … Continue reading
