First of all, thanks for all the good comments for the Paris video I uploaded last week (click here if you haven’t seen it).  For you all's information I am not preparing or prepared to be a youtuber in any ways, yet I would still love to do videos once in a while, especially for travel lookbooks, if I think that is a better way to present the content.  Anyways thanks for the support and hopefully I will have something new and better in the future.

Now, if you have watched the video closely you should have noticed some bits and pieces about Paris Fashion Week.  Yes!  I was lucky enough to be able to be in Paris during their SS2019 Fashion Week, I mean, that is a childhood dream come true.

 And this is what I gathered from my first FW experience :

  1. Shows and presentations are scattered around Paris. Therefore uber is the main commute around and traffic is expected to be hectic.

  2. Everyone is super stylish, utterly unbelievably gorgeous.  From their hair to their outfit and even to their vibe, every detail is on point.

  3. Don’t be afraid to experiment your own fashion sense!  Trust me you can never be too overdressed at Fashion Week.

  4. Be prepared to be snapped.  Around fashion week seasons, very often there will be street photographers around the corner to take snaps of people who are very dressed up.  So if you would like to be snapped, you know what to do.


 01 Boy's Club


Inspired by Chanel resort 2017 collection, this look is created by the YSL three-piece suits and a Needle and Thread tiered dress.  In order to be more feminine, I switched the hat and sneakers up to heels and ponytail.  And oh, the tie, which is the main point of the whole look.

02 The Look


If there's any FashionWeek typical look (one of), that is it.  A boxy blazer with wide pants and sneakers.  You can rest assured that you can never go wrong with this formula with whatever top or bag.  The more important tip, almost no one in Paris wears a blazer properly.  It may be rested on the shoulders, or pulled down on one side, or even a double layer blazer, your call.

03 Denim girl


I would say this is a very me look – full on denim.  Just like blazer, people here do not like to wear things properly, so don’t be afraid to pull one side down to create a rebel look.  Who said adding the sunglasses chain to your shades is extra?  What is extra in fashion weeks?

I know it's almost two months from Fashion Week but I still don’t think I am over the excitement yet.  Dressing up in the most over way but still being legit (which I secretly wish I can do the same every day) is a dream come true.  And I have to say the trip has been inspirational too – to just look at how people style items together or play around colours is some kind of pleasure by itself.

Oui, Paris never disappoints.  See you again in less than 2 months.
