Winter Sun

celine spring 2015 sunglasses aIf you live in a country where in a diagram, all the arrows eventually point to the answer “winter is coming”, this next thing I’ll say is going to make so much sense to you: sunglasses are actually a winter accessory. When endless snow meets the frostbite herald sunlight, you either put on sunglasses or go blind. My husband found it a little hard to accept this fact but eventually he gave in. But how could you not, especially when there’s so many beautiful eyewear to shop for in the middle of the season?

The two must have designs? This Céline pair with the metal bridge (or get it for a fraction of a price *wink wink* here) or the RayBan rounds.

Happy Feet, Crazy Feet

Happy Feet, Crazy Feet

Among hundreds of trends swooping down on us from S/S 2015 runways like sperms reaching out for the ovary, this caught my attention the most because, well, it’s about shoes. From Rochas to Simone Rocha, Sharon Wauchob to Dries Van Noten; it’s all about feathers, confetti straps or leather fringes. Another way to get your feet in the mood for spring is satin knots, thanks to Cédric Charlier and No.21 – a rather saner option.

Dealing With Summer Hair

Dealing With Summer Hair

giambattista valli couture fall 2014This up there is the only way I can deal with my hair when it’s actually summer out there. When you have frizzy, kinda curly hair that you can not tame or leave as is (because not everyone has dreamy shampoo commercial curls) a headband as big as your head and a flirty little bow (or a turban knot) is all you need.

Based in Los Angeles, the brand is led by sisters Kimberly & Nancy Wu. Its focus moves freely in between luxury and industrial design where utilitarian materials and processes translate into minimalist forms. With the intent of magnifying essentials and editing out excess, Building Block finds continual inspiration in returning to square one.

Before Sunset

It was a specific rainy labour day and the fact that there is a huge tree infront of our window blocking the entrance of any ray of light made me realise that summer is officially over. I wasn’t particularly sad, since spring and autumn are my favourite seasons and I’m not a fan or hot or cold weather; but the thought of not being able to wear sunglasses everyday made me mourn a little. Especially more when I saw that adorable Karen Millen add with that incredible little ginger girl whom I can’t imagine how gorgeous will be in the future. There’s no way I can look as cool as her but still, a girl has to cover her make up free eyes and dark under eye circles. And it’s amazing to see how many different options they have out there, considering I’m having a hard time even choosing something different to eat everyday. Let’s go down the road of sunglass hall of fame…

What To Expect While We’re Expecting

trendsNo we’re not pregnant but we are expecting with great excitement, like we do consecutively twice a year – and we have brand new trends born each season which become a part of our lives until the younger ones come along. Having said that; since we have no idea about the newborn, we can keep on spoiling the last one (I’m going to be a terrible mother) – fall/winter 2013 trends and pieces (with two exceptions of ss2013 shoes, because, you know they were obvious) which are most likely to take over the streets this month. Click through for a refresher and be prepared, because you know I’m going to say “I told you so”.
