In this festive season, Topman and I have teamed up to present the trends to watch out for if you’re looking to transition through the day from catching up with your besties over a brew to a night out in a cocktail bar having a drink or two. Continue Reading
Since ‘grey‘ is the colour everyone’s been talking about recently, I thought I would give it a go and create a post based almost entirely on it but seriously, what do you think of when you think of grey?
Is it a gloomy cloud-covered sky? A cute cuddly koala? Or a bestselling erotica? Continue Reading
It was in the middle of summer 2009 when I first moved to the UK from South East Asia, where the only outerwear you’ll ever need is a raincoat for the Monsoon season. Now, five years and some harshest winters in British history later, I’m still not used to this sweater weather. But then I fantasise winter as a giant fashion convention to wear layers, the struggle passes.
Day 5 was my last day in Paris. It was going to be a long one too knowing that I had a late flight that evening as well as the much anticipated shopping and all the last minute sightseeings in the day.
Paris is brilliant for shopping, as everyone knows, but there are two French stores that I was particularly fond of – celio* and San Marina. I stumbled upon celio* when mooching up and down Rue de Rivoli looking in stores I was more familiar with, like Zara, Bershka, Pull & Bear and H&M as I insisted on retaining my “better the devil you know” attitude but it was proven that a bit of impulsive exploration into foreign shops wouldn’t hurt. In fact, it benefited my retail therapy greatly. They had a huge selection of classic and contemporary menswear at amazing prices, especially at half price (sale still on as of time of posting). I bought a shirt and 2 great jumpers, one of which has already had an outing at the 7 For All Mankind event I was invited to last week.
In San Marina near the Saint-Michel Metro stop, I got to try on some fabulous quality leather shoes… and bring home with me a pair of my own. In terms of prices, I probably could’ve found more affordable but when converted to Sterling, they actualy weren’t ridiculously expensive considering what you get. Life is just too short for tacky-looking shoes. Yes/Yes?
Afterwards, we hit the Eiffel Tower!!! Continue Reading
