Beijing now completed with exciting projects in the pipeline, I’m back home for a little bit–jet lag in tow. What I would do to be somewhere hot, balmy and by the water! Just a couple lost images that Quan took of me when we were in gorgeous Roatan. I think we were doing some light diving this day. When the top popped off, I’m not sure, but that’s the beauty of being in the middle of nowhere! Also, this Row backpack really has been put to good use! Hope everyone’s week is going well! xx

More often than not I’m wearing black, white, or something along the creamy-camel spectrum. But lately I’ve been feeling like I need some color in my life. Whether it be in the form of this beautiful purple Whistles fur coat or today’s outfit shot during PFW. Being a long-time fan of the brand Kaelen, I jumped at the opportunity to work with them. This was one of my fave FW 14 looks.  The proportions. The orange-y high-lighter color. The fluted (zipped) hem. On paper: the antithesis of my usual style ‘code’. On me: exactly what the doctor prescribed! Not gonna lie, I was swishing, dancing and moving with a lot more bounce in this outfit! And the Chanel! More pics after the jump

JUST CAVALLI

A quick post wearing this awesome Just Cavalli Vest-Dress in Paris. I really love dressing things down, especially with sneakers. And no, no I haven’t traded in my Superstars (rather I left them in my flat in Paris–whoops!), so I’m giving the Air Force One’s a go. Sorta obsessed with the chunkiness of these shoes! The rest of the pics after the jump

FLOWER POWER

Another amazing piece from Masha Ma: this time a boxy floral laser cut jacket. To echo the underlying trend in all my outfits, I wore THPSHOP’s Cara Bra underneath for a sporty element.  Again, reiteration of the high-low mantra. For me, fashion is supposed to be fun, devoid of rules–this means you can take a runway piece (like Masha’s) and work something affordable like our Cara into it.
