Ah it’s been a while, I hope you’re still with me : ) Spring has arrived in my city, and so far it’s been fairly nasty (according to Sam). The thing about Spring season in Hong Kong is that you want it so badly when it’s not here. But when it finally arrives you just want to get rid of it. With 95% relative humidity it feels like living in a steam room. The only difference is you can’t just step out of it and say to yourself – Thank God it’s over. : (

I got this “skyscraper” dress from Monki last year. I love the print so much but the quality of it has been quite a disappointment. (It’s the forth time I wore it and it has lost its shape already. I guess that’s the thing about fast fashion… ) I’m wearing this vintage wool waistcoat from Prague together with a H&M blazer over it. Accessories wise I’m wearing a (pretty broken) chandelier necklace and a studded clutch to brighten up the entire outfit. I hope you like this one!

Flowy white blazers are probably your best dress up companions for Spring. Love the almost cape-like blazer by Dsquared². The look was made impecable with the waistcoat and a maxi thigh slit skirt (and the lace details.); The blazers spotted in Brioni’s Spring collection looks crisp and well-tailored, a must-have style for the season; It’s time to gear up with bold prints, and the bolder the better. Love the playfulness in Sonia Rykiel’s Spring collection! Oh and don’t be afraid of matching them up with even bolder accessories!

Bea from You Got Me Sewn had made this slim Khaki maxi skirt herself and paired it up with a cute blazer. I like the shape of the skirt! And she looks picture perfect : ); I love how Erika Marie from Fashion Chalet can achieve simlicity at its finest! She looks breathtaking in the Marie Antoinette dress by Wildfox Couture. (I can’t post all the pictures here in full size so I suggest you to visit her blog!); And once again, Beth from B. Jones Style has inspired me with her springy blazer and pants with wild floral prints. Join her for a recent thrift adventure here!

I’m back with a new outfit post! As I said before I’m trying different things out lately, I layered  a mini denim skirt on my go-to black maxi! It sounds funny but I think it’s a great way to add layers to your outfit! Firstly it adds a hint of denim blue to the black and white basics, and secondly the hard fabric of denim is a good mixture with the soft flowy black maxi and sheer top, it gives the entire outfit a solid texture. Love it so much! And the pouch is such a spot-on accessory for this minimalist look! I hope you enjoy this post, leave me a comment and let me know what you think : )

Once again the Frankie Morello’s Spring collection really makes me laugh. I love highway movie kind of setup for the show, and the “inside out, upside down” concept of designs, definitely an inspiration for my outfit; The Givenchy spring collection had opened my eyes for the possibilities of layering. First time in my life I feel justified with wearing two bottom pieces together (well leggings don’t count…); Antonio Marras’ Spring collection is so cheerful and fun. I love the subtle lace details  and the overall sheerness.

A black maxi skirt is like a blank canvas you can create almost any look with it. I found these fabulous stylings of slim-cut maxi skirts on Chictopia, they all looks so effortlessly chic! Visit their blogs for more info of the outfits. (And yes, I have a little girl crash on Jean Greige, please don’t tell her : S)

(I’m going to skip Get the look now section this time cox the post’s getting ridiculously long. You can find the items’ link in the text. Now, a track to brighten up your day!)


This months Video comes from Berlins superwoman Ellen Allien. Everybody who is just slightly into electronic music should have came across that name couple of times before. Founding her own Recordlabel, hosting Radio Shows, constantly Djing in all significant clubs worldwide, releasing Albums and Remixes and even running her own Fashion Label she really has a reputation of her own. Here we got her latest track which is featured on “Werkschau” a compilation of her BPitch Control record label which also features tracks by Paul Kalkbrenner or Sascha Funke. enjoy! tituz

Goodbye for now, sweet Vienna.

Goodbye for now, sweet Vienna.

Can’t believe it’s time to say goodbye again… I really love the city now after spending a month actually LIVING in it.  I used to be a frequent traveler (by frequent I mean out-of-control) and now I think I found the place (more importantly the person) to settle down with. It feels scary but pretty amazing. Now I’m heading to my hometown for Chinese New Year with family (believe me there’s nothing more important than CNY for us). I have no clue what will come my way in the next couple of months, wish me good luck : )

About the outfit: This is probably my last outfit for the winter season (style-wise). I only have a small part of my closet with me and the outfits are starting to look repetative. I’m so bored with the dirty neutrals now I need some bright colours for my Spring 2011. (But I genuinely hope you’re still gonna like and comment on this on : P ). Have a lovely evening.

Walking on the beautiful streets of the former capital of a gigantic empire, one can never be disappointed by the well-dressedness of its senior citizens. All their fancy fur coats, clouch hats and dainty handbags had made me jealous everytime when I walk down the Mariahilfer Straße. This look is inspired, from head to toe, by the stylish old ladies in Vienna. The gloves, the hat, the fur collar and little handbag (which is perfect to punch your gentleman right at the belly.) The way they pay attention to details is very 1920s.
That was a lovely afternoon. We took a walk along the Danube River and then to the Cafe Central for a piece Sachertorte. I call it the Viennese perfection.

Finally I have recieved my Jeffrey Campbell order from Solestruck.com! I love them so much (yea, so much I forget about the fact that I have to pay Austrian custom €78 for nothing.) This is a look I had in mind for a very long time. I know there’s a lot of drama going on, but with the simple colour combination it’s actually fairly wearable. I love playing with different hemlines, this is my minimum/maximum look. I hope you like it!

I’m feeling…off the shoulder

I love maxi hemlines, but this one was a floor-sweeping experience : P
I’m wearing an one shoulder maxi dress (which you don’t really see the should here.. ) with a denim coloured shirt over it. The short torso-torso-long-legged look is very chic in my opinion. But what I love most about this outfit is definitely the off shoulder look of the blazer, I feel very powerful for some reasons. By the way I’ve managed to resist the coldness and to look grumpy in every shot. I’m going pro. Enjoy!

Bon Voyage!


I’m wearing a slouchy knitted top with myTopshop frill skirt, favourite item from Topshop this  season. I know I’ve been wearing the same pair of boots for a few posts now, but bear with me because they are just so comfy : P I’ve completed the look with a new bowler hat and a lovely leather belt. What should I say, I love trying out all the different hemlines. Hope you’ll enjoy this post. The next one will be coming from Austria!

Bon Voyage!
