Following last week’s #FollowDearPostmanToShanghai Lookbook Part 1, I told you guys the number of shoes I brought to Shanghai - 7 pairs. And I’d have to admit I didn’t get to wear them all. First, I brought my sneakers planning to work out in the hotel which of course failed. Second, Shanghai was too cold for me to wear any slides. But you know me, I always bring more than enough just so I have more options depending on my mood. (Read more...)
Why Shanghai? Honestly, it's an impulse trip. It all happened over a Saturday's afternoon tea at Mandarin Oriental while I was eating my favourite scone of the town, expressing my desperation to travel. That both of us happened to have a few days' leave and we were desperate to get away from work. That we had wanted to have some Tiny Times moment, to run on the bridge in fur and gowns and to get all tipsy and flirty at a fancy bar. It just happened. We booked everything the same night and got on the plane 2 weeks later. Check out the lookbook...
As literal and straight-forward as it is, Chapter 2 of DP Fashionology is all about how to make your look look expensive. Logos and price tags don’t mean everything, the cutting and the texture are the key. That means you can always get something relatively cheap and make them look classy (which I would take as expensive). Now the trick is HOW to make them look elegant and classy.

2 days. 2 more days until the Cupid Day in case you forget – or are panicking – about it. Here's the bomb of the year boys and girls – the Valentine's Day. Oh well, you can barely forget it's the DAY since your bouquet/kisses-filled Instagram will remind you, your Facebook will remind you, and yeh the love birds on the street. Don't get me wrong – I love Valentine's Day, I love the Day being genuine, warm and unique.
So here's my Valentine's Day suggestion, love birds. (Read more...)
Coming to fashion, people often ask me if I have tips! for my fashionology. I wouldn’t say they are tips, but more specifically, formula and theory. Formula and theory that I rely on most of the time when I come up with my outfits. So I have decided to do a new series of DP Fashionology - a collection of my styling formula or theory.
Here you are my first formula - Shoes + Bag Colour Formula! (Read more...)
This is a story about Shoes.
Every pair of shoes has its own story. Every pair bears a special blessing of itself and a meaning that will never wear out even after, one day, the shoes become so old that they can no longer fix it with a new sole or sew the hole in the front. Every pair of shoes represent that specific stage of you, that moment, that mindset, that you can never relive again. A pair of pink ballet shoes give you your dream, a pair of heels send you to your very first date at the cinema, a pair of loafers give you confidence at work and a pair of fur slippers give you a home.
Every pair of shoes represent you. A you right now, right there. This is the story about Shoes. (Read more...)
Checked or Glitter? The season is all about Team Checked or Team Glitter. The two elements are basically all over the place – checked pants, checked blazer, checked belts or glittery dress, glittery top, glittery shoes, you name it. And of course, both of them are my big loves and how can I miss them? So I have put together some outfits for you, casual and formal, so that you won't panic being invited to a glitter- or checked- themed dinner!
All about the Checks first! (Read more...)
