God Save The Green

As city girls, we have always longed for a whiff of fresh grass or cucumber sandwiches in a picnic basket. But honestly, surrounding us are dirty green nylon nets from construction sites, olives in greek salad and funny little green men in the traffic lights.

So B and I thought: Why not add some green color in the city? It’s the symbol of youth, energy and our Mother Nature after all.

Of course, there’s still another challenge. We’ve always been told that green isn’t a flattering color to wear since it makes you paler and unhealthy. Myth debunked: Green is actually a refreshing color especially when you layer up different shades of green–sharp green,military green, mint green…you name it. If you’re still afraid, try pair green with timeless classics (black and white) like B and I did. It’s foolproof.

Paradise in Print

It’s Chinese New Year!–and also time to ignite style envy in gatherings without frightening grandma or looking like a red packet. An alternative to good old red, gold and purple is PRINTS. The array of patterns lightens up the room and more importantly your mood. To maximise the effect, go for bold bright colors!

Remember, girls. Daddy said that we don’t need mini skirts and deep V tops to turn heads.

True. All you need is Prints.
