Red is the color of prosperity and happiness in Chinese culture, so by default, we wear red to celebrate the lunar new year. But why not dress in this scrumptious hue of tangerine for a change? It’s fresh, energetic and most importantly, it’s synonymous with auspiciousness in Chinese!
Salmon would be another nice option since “fish”(魚) has the same pronunciation as “surplus”(餘)…a bit far-fetched maybe, but do click in and check out the other outfit featuring a very lovely salmon pink trench coat designed by local brand The Layers.
Wish you all a Happy Year of the Sheep! Meeeeeehhhhh!
Macau is only an hour ferry ride away from Hong Kong, so I’m a bit shocked to find that my last visit is in 2012.
As in our last visit, we didn’t really do much, just wandered a bit, chilled a bit, took some pictures…sometimes, that’s all I want really.
My love for Japan has been constantly growing. If possible, I hope to visit the country every single month.
Our trip to Nagoya and Takayama in December is one of extremes: we drove for hours under heavy snowstorm in the dark, which was pretty scary and dangerous, but we also had the most relaxing time in Hirayu onsen area and wandering the old streets of Takayama.
The freshly fallen snow just made everything a little more beautiful and a lot more magical. Even the electric wires look like they have a story to tell. Now click in and get frozen with me!
As a cat lover, I’m ashamed that I haven’t heard of “Ocelot” before reading the description of this Coach carryall bag. Not entirely sure about the difference between ocelot prints and leopard prints, but I love how those on this bag look vaguely like smooches.
Stuart Vevers said in an interview that he has one aim as Coach’s new creative director: to add “cool” to the brand. I guess by now no one would dispute that he has done it, and more.

Hong Kong Fashion Week organised by HKTDC is the biggest fashion event in Asia, participated by both local design talents and international brands. Closing the 4-day event this year is Shanghai Tang‘s fashion show unveiling its FW15 ready to wear and couture collection.
The collection is glamorous, sophisticated and to my surprise, very contemporary. Any reference to the orient is subtle, mostly found in collar details, the use of Chinese knots and a pop of jade and scarlet.
