Take A Vest!

It’s March and it’s spring. Could there be better excuses for an afternoon tea in Stanley? After soothing our sugar and caffeine crave, Rachel and I bathed in perfect sunshine and warm breeze on the sidewalk.The waves reflected the azure sky and glistened like sequins on a tutu.

Where’s B? You might ask. “Count me out…I don’t really like sunshine and heat.”

While I’m totally irritated by this lame reason, I must admit it’s really getting warmer and warmer (27°C yesterday, for Chris’s sake).

So here is a piece of advice: Put on your summer clothes–or better yet–your sleeveless tops! They have been hiding under your heavy sweater for way too long. We present you the mother of all sleeveless tops–White Vests.

Flow in Nostalgia

Coco Chanel said, “A girl should be two things: Classy and Fabulous.”

In the world of miniskirts and instagram photos with girls showing their cleavage hashtagged #hot, we sometimes forget what is really important in style.

This time B and I board on a time machine and embrace the warmth of the old times–vinyl records, bricks and concrete stairs. We land on an Edwardian mansion with our love: chiffon high-low skirts. Seriously. Our breath is taken away by those irregular hems flowing in the sunlight through the stainglass window!

We sink into the nostalgia where women dressed to appeal themselves instead of perverts behind the iPhone screen.
