Three weeks ago, I got the chance to participate in a Blogger seminar held by Style by Asia at Kingpins Hong Kong – the premium boutique denim tradeshow. The organization hosts shows in Los Angeles, NYC and Amsterdam as well but their Hong Kong show is the only one of its kind in Asia. Kingpins is celebrating their … Continue reading

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

Blondie&Pixie DIY Experiment: Statement Headpiece

In the second workshop for the Blondie&Pixie DIY experiment, Carmen and I decided to play with tulle to create two-different head-pieces. December is one of those months that are crazy-busy and packed with Christmas parties and events. In the midst of doing-everything-that-needs-to-done it can be difficult to find the time (and the energy!) to get … Continue reading

Hong Kong Talent: Twisted Sisters

A few weeks ago when I attended the launch event of #ilivefashion, I spotted a gorgeous-white-deconstructed dress on an equally gorgeous gal.

DIY Patched Denim Jacket

Fashion trends are quite facsinating. It starts so subtly; you see a detail; a fabric; a silhouette; a vibrant colour that you like. Initially, you may not even know that it’s a new “trend” coming along, you just know that you like it. Then – boom – there is the explosion and you suddenly see … Continue reading

#ILIVEFASHION MOVEMENT + GIVEAWAY CONTEST

It’s official: Hong Kong is one fire. There are so many exciting things happening in the city right now; everything from local-creative-movements to large-splashes-by-the-big-brands. While I adore Hong Kong, there is no secret that the “middle” market and the non-mainstream-fashion always been underrepresented. For that reason, I was over-the-moon when Carmen Chan (my partner in … 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: Neon home-interior

It’s official: the neon trend appear to be here to stay. Several seasons ago I recall hearing from someone in the industry that neon was a fad soon be gone. It could not have been more wrong; the neon palette with hot pink, flourocent yellow and orange at heart has migrated from garments to accessories, … Continue reading
