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

DIY Tulle Skirt

Ever since I saw the below photo several seasons ago, I’ve been obsessed about creating a big-puffy-nude-pink-tulle-skirt. I dissected the tulle-skirt topic here a couple of months ago (love-love-love the white-polkadot-tulle-skirt from Chloe Fall’13) and was planning to schedule this post shortly after. That did not happen (sorry!) as my life over the last two months … 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). This because Swedish fashion is after all about the functional-chic-affordable approach to Fashion as opposed to Haute Couture. Try to Google “street style” … 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. After further introduction, I learned that Maria Mak (the gorgeous gal with the gorgeous dress) is the founder of Hong Kong based label TwS “Twisted Sisters”, and in fact the designer of that dress. A big supporter … Continue reading

Tulle Skirt Inspiration

Anticipating my DIY  tulle skirt post, I share with you some of my all-time favorite tulle skirts. There are a range if iconic ones and something for everyone: the Carrie Bradshaw white tutu skirt; the amazing green full-skirt she wore while reuniting with Mr.Big in Paris; the stunning polkadot skirt from Chloe Fall’13, Jason Wu’s gorgeous … Continue reading

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

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

Something Old, Something New …..

Antiques, vintage, slow-fashion, second-hand, loppis (in Swedish), thrift shopping, flea markets – name it what you want but once thing is clear – there is a HUGE trend right now in Sweden to Restore, Reuse and Renovate. The old saying “Something old, something new, something borrowed” has never felt more appropriate. Perhaps it’s a backlash … Continue reading
