Boys Boys Boys @ Dsquared²

(Dsquared² Spring 2014)

Talk about some eye candy!!!  I don't usually report on menswear but the Dan and Dean sure now how to put on a show!  With a "Lost in the tropical islands" theme, they got their male models down to their mankinis and Caten's signature black plastic frames (it's the 12-packed-chunky-thighed-with-dimples models) !!!

And the clothes, as usual, are as heavenly as the boys.

I was meeting up with a girlfriend for quick bite at HLK followed by an event at the Rock Bund, where CHANEL The Little Black Jacket is hosted (June 21-July 7th).  Got out of my joggers and ready to hit a non-baby social scene as quickly as I can...only to be stuck at home 'cause I couldn't get a cab!  I can't believe this!!!

You see, this is the annoying part of Shanghai: it's impossible to get a cab the minute is starts to rain, snow (doesn't happen often but still), rush hours, weekend and all holidays!  And I'm not fancy enough to have my own driver (like most of my friends here) so public transportation is my only way to get from A to B...on in today's case not getting to B.  I felt like a teenager being grounded at home!

My favourite model Cara Delevinge posing with owls for Mulberry...makes me wanna own the classic Bayswater tote in that Jade colour!

With the temperature rising, makeup just doesn't seem to stick.  But like most people, I like to get a little "help" so I don't look like I'm only getting 2-3 hrs sleep (even though it's pretty much that this past week while the kids are trying to fight the jet lag).

One of my favourite summer product is MAC's Paint Pot in Bare Study, a soft beige with gold shimmer.  It can be used as a base to enhance the pigmentation and the wear any shadow or simply on its own (which is what I do with a quick stroke of eyeliner).  The creamy formula dries up fairly quickly to an intense vibrant finish so you gotta work fast for an even application.  I usually warm it up and apply with my ring finger.

Done in 30 seconds flat!  And it stays all day!

White? Hot!

(Glamour UK July 2013)

White, my favourite colour, is the least forgiving of all: gets dirty in 2 mins flat (sooner if in presence of a baby/toddler) and shows everything (bra unless wearing seamless nude, lump/bump, non-slimming).  But for some reason, it's incredibly gorgeous against any skin tone and chic in any style!

OBSESSION DU JOUR - Pierre Hardy Sneakers




I've been obsessed over the Pierre Hardy sneakers, especially the black & white signature cube hightops.  And now, they're even on sale at Ssense but they're all men styles, which doesn't bother me at all except the smallest size is an IT39...what does that translate into women's sizes anyways???  In any cases, I have a feeling that they're not gonna fit my 36 1/2 feet.  :(

GIRL CRUSH - Pernille Teisbæk

I "accidentally" landed on Pernille Teisbæk blog and instantly fell in love with her coolness.  I also think she one of the few who is always wearing bootleg and baggy jeans (as oppose to skinny like most of us) and really rocking it...makes me want to dig out my old denims from over a decade ago!

Maybe I'll need to loose the last two lingering kilos to my pre-baby weight (and possible even a little more) before I can feel "skinny" in my old "baggy" jeans...
