Pisa, Italy


While I was in Florence, we took some time off and visited Pisa. Since I was a kid, my mom told me about the leaning tower of Pisa. I told myself, someday I will visit this unique tower. When I actually saw the tower, I felt really happy. One thing checked-off from my bucket list. I thought we can't go inside and climb the tower, but few years ago, they restored it. Now it had stop leaning (apparently for the next 300 years) and the public can actually climb the tower.

Have you been to Pisa and is it in your bucket list to visit someday?

Comfort Zone

 

I'm a traveler which emphasize on comfort through and through. I know it looks good to be with OTK Boots that has 4 inch heels matched with cool looking leather jacket and a short dress. What went on in my head was, do I really want to freeze my ass off but look great in the picture OR stay warm, fuzzy and look a little less outstanding? =D Well, from the pictures, I think you can see which option I picked. I'm all for comfort zone because in actual fact, I really can't take the cold. 

What about you? Which would you pick? Stylish and heck care about the weather or the latter?

Florence, Italy


Let me take you to Florence today. I mean through my pictures =) After Venice, we took a train to Florence. This trip happened in November last year. To be precise, it was actually before Thanksgiving. So yea, it was way delayed in sharing with you. Sorry...I got distracted with so many things. *gulp* Now it's already end of February!

This is my very first time in Florence. Since I've been to a few places in Italy, such as Milan, Rome and Venice, my bf thought it would be nice to show me Florence too. In comparison to Milan and Rome, Florence is rather small. There isn't as many popular spots besides the huge church called Cathedral di Santa Maria Del Fiore ( Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Flower ). Till today, it remains the largest brick dome ever constructed.


The beautiful dome of the Church
To many fashionistas like you and me, we know that the famous retailer Luisaviaroma, held the fashion event called FIRENZE4EVER here every year. So Florence is also home for few fashionable names such as Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, Roberto Cavalli, Stefano Ricci and Emilio Pucci. 

Let me show you some pictures and hope you'll enjoy it. Have you been to Florence?

Burberry - Patchwork, Pattern & Prints


If you've not watched the Burberry show, you should because they're beautiful! Everything revolves around patchwork, pattern and prints. Loads of frills (which aren't really my favorite on apparels), bucket bags and gorgeous coats. Here are some of the pictures from the show and the coats and cape are few of my favorite things from this Fall/Winter 15 show.

Bucket Bag in Animal Print and Fringe
Christopher Bailey, Chief Creative and CEO says: 'We called the show "Patchwork, Pattern & Prints" which really sums up what’s at the heart of the collection; a relaxed yet intricate collection of dramatic silhouettes, handcrafted embroidery, and detailed embellishment. We loved this theme of a patchwork of ideas, textiles, silhouettes and our favourite Burberry pieces, evolved to reflect the bohemian relaxed spirit of the show.'

You can watch the livestream here if you've not seen the show. Tell me, which is your ultimate  favorite from this show?

Chinese New Year


Yesterday was the first day of Chinese New Year. In the lunar calendar, the Chinese usher in the new year of ram and this celebration usually last for 15 days. Prior to the new year, we usually spring clean the house, decorates it with flowers and ornaments. These ornaments are usually red (happiness & ward of evil spirit) and gold (prosperity). Actually, Rowena from Rolala Loves explained the traditions of celebrating Chinese New Year really well. 

I love this festival for a few reasons: 
1) To be able to have reunion dinner with my family (including my bf because he's family too). 
2) I get to eat all the junk food which I don't usually get to because it's seasonal (pineapple tart is one of them). 
3) I've a reason to wear something new and of course, red in color.

If you're celebrating Chinese New Year, I wish you 新年快乐 (Happy New Year) and  步步高升 (This year will be better than last). Do you have any friends that celebrates Chinese New Year?

Dior & Diorama

Discovering Dior.
Last week, I had the privilege to visit two Dior stores in Singapore. One in Marina Bay Sands and another at Ion Center Orchard Road. The reason of my visit was to discover Diorama, the new "It Bag"! It was really nice of the Sales Assistance to spend about half an hour time, and one-on-one, to show me all the Diorama bags.


This fashionable and architectural bag is indeed very nice. These bags were previously shown on the runway at Dior's Spring Summer 2015 fashion show in Paris. The crest-shaped clasp is made of metal. The chain can be used both ways, on the shoulder or used as cross-body. Yes, in a way it does look a little like the Chanel's Boy Bag but it's a lot lighter than a Boy. It comes in 3 sizes - small, medium and large. Not all bags come in 3 sizes. I thought the small size looked really adorable but if you have a lot to store in your bag, do go for the large. These bags are available at the store for viewing. You can place an order and it will take a while before the bag is made especially for you.

The same bag which I was holding but on the model in the Spring/Summer 15 fashion show. (picture from Style.com)

I definitely enjoyed my experience and knowing Dior better now. Each and every item are well-designed and so delicate. It's definitely a brand that's created with so much love. Do click to read more and to view more pictures below.

Living In My Levi's - 501 CT


Let me take you to a journey with my Levi's 501 CT today. A day in Levi's and living in it =)

The Levi's CT (customized and tapered) denim line features 3 different washes and improves everything we already loved from the original cut. This revamped version is cut slightly straighter at the waist, smaller in the seat and has a more tapered fit. (information taken from style.com). This new pair of Levi's is definitely my favorite right now. 

What did you do in your jeans today?

Celebrate Love


My bf and I have been together for many years but we do not celebrate Valentine's Day. We believe that love should be celebrated every day and not just a particular day. As it became more commercialize year after year, we see set menus and promotions in many restaurants. I guess we just preferred the flexibility to order what we want instead of being cornered to either have Valentine's Day Set Menu A or B or maybe C?

If you're wondering why I'm wearing this outfit and writing about Valentine's Day? We were actually going out for a date night. That's celebrating love as well don't you think? Also, I'm collaborating with Diane from DeeVine Anonyme and a group of beautiful ladies to share with you what we would wear on Valentine's Day. Check out all the ladies here =)

How about you? Do you celebrate Valentine's Day?

Levi's Chinese New Year Edition

Live It Up This Chinese New Year! 
Yesterday in this post, I showed you how I styled my cool red Levi's jeans. Chinese love the color red especially during this special occasion. Red is referred to as a auspicious color and for Levi's, it represents energy and enthusiasm. 

To usher in the year of ram, Levi's came up with a special Chinese New Year edition. It reflects the atmosphere of the festivities and cutting-edge fashion. I will be sharing some gorgeous pieces for men and women from Levi's with you. Some of the collection has a subtle touch of animal prints and embroidery on both men and women's tops.


Levi's has invited two fashion icons, Shawn Yue and Ai Fei, to be featured in the "LIVE IT UP" campaign for this Lunar New Year of the Ram. This campaign shows their optimistic attitude towards  life and celebrating the new year by wearing Levi's. Check out some of these ad campaigns. Doesn't it make you feel like getting a pair of Levi's too?

Live In My Levi's


This year, Chinese New Year falls on February 19th. In the lunar calendar, Chinese everywhere ushers in the new year. This celebration is just as huge as Christmas for the Christians. I grew up knowing that before Chinese New Year, my mom would buy new clothes for the family and prep new utensils to be used for the reunion dinner. Apparently, it means we are ushering in the new year with new things and new chapter begins. Although now, I personally believe that we are very blessed to be financially stable. We are able to buy basic needs such as paying for a shelter, bring food to the table and wear new clothes. 

As time passes, many of these traditions are slowly fading away. We tend to buy clothes anytime of the year as and when we want it. We don't wait till the new year to use new utensils anymore. Although, the two things that I still try to practise, are having reunion dinner and wearing something red. In the olden days, it is believed that red is a color of protection towards the evil spirit. In my term, red does look good on me and I like that color =D 


This time around, I am collaborating with Levi's to show you how I would live in my pair of Levi's. Red jeans aren't too common and it's definitely a color filled with energy. Since this year we are ushering in the year of Ram, I paired my Levi's Skinny Jeans with this black sweater. Don't you think the sheep on it is so adorable? I tried to keep everything plain and simple so that the pattern on the jeans are able to stand out by itself. At first, I would like to wear this sweater on the first day of Chinese New Year but I abandoned that idea. That's because I would rather not deal with my mom's nagging. She is a superstitious lady and there should be no black or white in the household on Chinese New Year. So yea, I'm wearing it today instead. 

Hope you like my outfit and I will show you more of Levi's Chinese New Year collections in the next post. Do you own a Levi's?

10 Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

1. Lingerie & Sleepwear
Him - Under (Cornelius Kimono)
Her - Stella McCartney Bra & Brief
So, it's actually a week away from Valentine's Day. Any idea what to get for your partner yet? If you already have, good for you! In fact, I have no idea what to buy for my other half so I look into East Dane, which is my favorite go-to website when it comes to gifts for men.

If you're not dating or married, it's ok to get something for your single girlfriends too. Just go out as single ladies night out and do gift exchange. Not a bad idea too, right? After all, it's a day to celebrate love. Loving your friends and still celebrate Valentine's Day isn't all that bad.

2. The Jeans

Her - Rag & Bone Skinny Jeans

My Favorite Things


My few favorite things when it comes to travels will probably be what I'm wearing in the pictures. Trench coat, crossbody bag and last but not least, the OTK (over the knee) boots. Especially this one from Stuart Weitzman. I recently read Garance Doré's post about her issues with OTK boots but I don't seem to have all those issues with this 5050 boots from Stuart Weitzman. I think they're so comfortable and light. I can walk for miles without having aching feet. They're a staple for me when I travel to colder places. 

Do you own a pair of OTK boots? Do you face any issues with them?

Santa Maria Della Salute


In my last post, I mentioned to show you more of this church called Santa Maria Della Salute. It's a beautiful church and a definite must-visit if you're in Venice. It is situated at the entrance of the Grand Canal. This church was built in 1630. Due to a plague that was so severe, the Senate promised to build a church in celebration of the VIrgin if she could save the city. Within weeks, the plague subsided and on 1st April the following year, the first stone of the Salute, which means health and salvation in Italian was laid.

San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice


Today, I'm bringing you to this tiny island in Venice called San Giorgio Maggiore. During my visit to Venice in end November, I was blessed with many days of great weather. Couldn't be more thankful for the sun-shiny days. There's a beautiful monastery in this island and we went up to the bell tower of San Giorgio Maggiore church. If you're visiting Venice, do pay a visit to this island and go up to the bell tower. You'll get the most amazing view of Piazza San Marco and Venice.
