Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s the last day of May, I guess I really should finish this post which has been in my draft folder for quite some time. For those of us who appreciate Hermès, a trip to Paris won’t be complete without dropping by one of their stores. Among all H stores in Paris, the newly opened one on the left bank is my absolutely favorite. There is nothing spectacular from the outside. However, stepping inside, the first thing that embraces you is the smell. Since the entrance of the store is a flower shop bursting with most gorgeous blooms by florist Baptiste Pitou. Further inside comes the most amazing part of the store, an installation made of curved strips of ash wood by architect Denis Montel. More surprises come when you walk further, there are even a book shop and a tea bar inside! The three floored store is used mainly to showcase furniture and homewares. But you can also find a small counter for scarves as well as one section for leather goods. Even if you are not into Hermès, their store on Rue de Sèvres is well worth a visit. ;-)

“My style icon is anyone who makes a bloody effort.” – Isabella Blow
Do you have a style icon? I don’t have a particular one in mind, but I do like those who make efforts before stepping out of the door, in order to look effortless. Pretty paradox, ah? lol~~ BTW, I’ll be on a business trip next week, so see you in a week. Have a fabulous weekend everyone! :-)

Sometimes finding the right bag is like finding a soul mate – is about being lucky. You just need to have a little faith, trust yourself and trust what gives you pleasure. :-D
Unlike some of my friends who prefer bags without veining, I, on the contrary, adore them. They make a bag less “perfect”, but marvelous and natural in each her own unique way…
We’ve been to Paris countless times, but still can’t get enough of this remarkable city. <3
I guess it’s not only about the historical spots, the arts, the foods, the fashion and these awe-inspiring small shops… The charm of the city lies in the way the Parisian lives their life.
There they are enjoying their life. Well, as you can see, even their dogs are doing so. ;-P
We’ll take a Spring getaway to Paris next week, so I am leaving you today with some eye candies from Vogue Germany’s May issue. Love the colors and the puristic touch of these photos, hope you like them too.
Have a wonderful weekend, see you in a week! :-)

Happy May First everyone! Reader featherfactor challenged me to create an “All American” outfit with my RG Birkin. I came up with this ensemble because the essence of American style means for me a balance between timeless and modern, something relaxed, easy-to-wear, but in the meantime very urban chic.
The mix of red, blue and white echoes the color of the American flag, it seems to make this outfit more “American”. lol~~ But the suede rope belt and the long necklace are, on the contrary, more me. They bring a bit of personal character to the whole look. ;-P Hope you like it, dear Katherine!
Shirt, belt & necklace: COS, jeans: Levi’s, shoes: Converse, bag: Hermès.
