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.

Start with the Basics: Denim on Denim

For our first post, we’re gonna start with the basics element of all styles–Denim (we simply can’t live without it, right?)

Both of us chose the Double D style, screaming there ain’t no such thing as too much Denim!
