Smart Ballerinas

Every time I am in Paris, I am amazed by the effortless chic style of the Parisians. Well, I know it sounds so cliché, but when you walk down Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, the charming streets in Le Marais and the Saint-Germain des Prés areas. Passing by those beautifully dressed Parisians, you’ll know what I mean. ;-) Sorry that I have no pictures to share with you coz I am too chicken to ask them for permission (ouch, my broken French).

One of the wardrobe essentials for many French women are the ballerina flats. Comfortable, stylish and so easy to wear, they are the most chic alternative to heels. I love the fact that ballerina flats will always lend your look timeless sophistication. Either paired with slim-fit pants or a high-waisted skirt, a LBD or a trench…

So, what’s your favorite brand for ballerinas? I recently got two pairs and am very happy with both. Left one: Elizabeth Stuart, right one: Les Trois Garçons.


Summer Outfit (2): Touches of Red

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. Today I’d like to post another fashion challenge outfit: “A red one with your RG Birkin.” challenged by dear reader Birkinmary.

Do you wear reds in summer? How do you prefer to match this powerful color? :-)

Top: H&M, skirt: COS, necklace: DIY, flats: Salvatore Ferragamo, bag & scarf: Hermès.


My Favorite Things in June

- Color block flat sandals.
- Two tone chain necklace.
- Last but not least, white orchids. :-)

Summer is about refreshing colors and fun! :-D BTW, we are headed to Paris tomorrow (this time for meeting friend and for the summer sales, lol). Have a great week and I’ll see you next Monday!


Equipment Silk Blouse: Yes or No?

I have been looking for the perfect silk blouse for quite some time. After doing my homework on brands and pricing, it seems that everyone is wearing and liking those from Equipment. However, I am that kind of person who is a bit skeptical about all the hype that’s around a most coveted item and prefer to try things on before I buy them. The only problem is, I couldn’t find a local store that carries them. :-(

So my dear readers, what’s your favorite brand for silk blouses? If you happen to own those Equipment ones, would you please share your review? How does it fit, are you satisfied with the quality and is it worth all the praises? BTW, I am considering the white signature one. ;-)


Summer Outfit (1): Understated Leopard

I bought this leopard skirt months ago and finally got to wear it yesterday. If you are fond of animal prints, how do you prefer to wear them? A small splash of leopard here or there or do you also enjoy animal prints as a whole? ;-)
Top: Zara, skirt: D&G, necklace: COS, pumps: Marni.


S/S Inspiration: Land of Confusion

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.” – Gianni Versace

I really enjoy this simple yet powerful editorial, sometimes less is definitely more. Wish you all a happy weekend!

White Peonies

It has been really hot lately, which makes me too lazy to take any new outfit pictures (well, I know I still have two fashion challenges to complete, haven’t forgot it ^_*). But for today, I’d like to share my lovely white peonies, hope you can feel a bit of the coolness through this photo. :-)
