Floral Shadows


It seems like summer weather is upon us here in tropical Hong Kong...













Dress: Zara
Heels: Chloe
Sunglasses: Prada
Tote: Michael Kors
Necklace: Arte

It seems like summer weather is upon us here in tropical Hong Kong (took long enough! I thought I'd be living in a land of foggy humid spring showers till I left for London in September!). I'm a sun girl. I absolutely adore the sun! When the sun is out, every single thing looks a little bit shinier and happier, call it 'sun-tinted glasses' if you will...or 'sunglasses' (oh wait, we have those already!), but you gotta admit everything does look nice and hazy with a lovely pair of sepia-toned sunnies. 

After the initial freak-out over whether the photos would look extremely over-exposed, I came to my senses and remembered that I was a girl who knew how to use the Manual mode on her DSLR now, hah! Silly me! Guess I just don't have a sense of professionalism honed in me, yet. Well, guess what crazy sunny days, not afraid of you anymore. The photos turned out surprisingly beautiful. There is something about the extreme blast of sunlight that renders all prints and details crystal clear yet at the same time allows soft shadows to swirl amongst the folds of the fabric and congregate in the dark frame corners. Ahh dear sunlight, how I've missed you. 


What better weather than today to pop out a silk floral dress?  Over the weekend, I raided Zara for work-worthy dresses in wonderful shades of floral and white. I have a nice collection of white dresses now to go along with my  dark golden tan. As of right now - as much as I'd like to pull off a sexy burgandy-hued red, white is definitely my color. Rest assured that you'll see a lot more of my new white numbers in future posts. 

In the meantime, what do you think of my Silk Sundress?
OH! and I forgot to mention! I dyed my hair! What do you guys think?

    Thanks hun! Well, actually I just use H&M dark brown eyebrow pencil, and some dark brown or/and dark greyish brown shadow .
    My brows are naturally almost white, I almost dont have brows at all, they´re so thin..:p
    I start by drawing them how i want them, and fill in with the pencil. I then fill in with the shadow to smudge the hard lines out..:) Thats it really.. Maybe I should do a Eyebrow post??:)

    Oh, I would love to share a makeup/fashion related conversation with you over a cuppa coffee :) Maybe one day in the future we should meet halfway, London? hi hi :)
    Well, coffee or not, I´d love to share makeup tips with u anyway ^_^

    Your hair looks nice, love how the sunlight makes it look a bit sandcolored:)

  9. Hi Steph! Okay, so maybe the ring I was talking about is not EXACTLY the same, but similar! It's the Coach signature ring set in gold (http://www.coach.com/online/handbags/-jewelry_rings-10551-10051-38453-en?t1Id=38451&t2Id=38453&tier=2&LOC=LN#101302)Thanks for your reply!

    Here's how I styled it: http://www.theshopaholic247.com/2012/04/golden-coast.html

    I ALMOST didn't recognize you when I loaded your blog. I was like, wait did I click on the wrong page? Haha, but I love it! Ahhh I'm not looking forward to visiting Hong Kong this summer! I'll be there from end of July- August. It's going to be SO HOT & HUMID!

  10. Hi, Steph! You look amazing in this dress. Floral patterns are really popular right now. I esp. love this dress because of the quality of the print on it. It looks very good.
    I was also looking for some floral maxi skirt or dress, but what i saw was a cheap print & i hated it :(

    Tour tan suits you so well, dear :) xx
