Twinkle toes

I’m not talking about nail polish, but it does help to make the summer a lot more stylish.

I love sandals.  I own at least 25 – 30 pairs and have worn so many of them down till a strap broke off .  Do you know why? Because they’re comfortable, they’re easy to slip on and slip off.  And in the lovely Hong Kong weather – they don’t make your feet hot 😉

With summer, slowly but surely on its way – the investment is worth it.  So I went in search of lovely handmade sandals from Etsy for your viewing pleasure!



LBDs made with love

Hundreds of books have been written about it,  the amount of tv shows that are created make a theme of it.   Scores of fashion magazines dictate to us why we need, why we *must* have it, what structure would look good on us, and frankly with the way fashion is heading – there are styles that accommodate a multitude of figures.

A hot dinner date, a funeral, a night out with the girls, hen’s night, a high powered meeting (with a fitted structured jacket or cardigan, on of course)  – they all befit a great black dress moment.  This investment can be worn with heels, boots, sandals, ballet flats and when we can’t decide, when we’re sick of making another decision, when we’re just ‘not in the mood’ or we have nothing else to wear – the LBD is our saviour.

Sometimes though, investing in an LBD can break the bank, purchasing a poor quality LBD may not look good on us – so what do we do?  How can we, as fashion conscious women, who are also savvy shoppers – get our hands on an LBD without feeling the pinch?  Mind you, we’re still partially in a recession too, being a bit mindful of how much we spend isn’t a bad thing.

One of my favorite sites for mindful shopping is Etsy.  There are tons of lovely handmade garments made by people who have great style and make it themselves.  I’ve selected 3 of my favorite black dresses by 3 great designers.


What’s your traveling style?

What is a woman’s traveling style?  Can it be “labelled” as Miami Chic? Brazilian Boho-babe? Goan Goddess?

Every woman has a traveling style, no matter what it is.  What can be said is it depends on the destination, the mood and the budget of the holiday too.

Here are a few new names I haven’t encountered before in the Resort category and the looks put together from day to night are just divine!
