The Cheongsam

Char and I took a series of photographs during the summer of 2013. In this series, I am wearing a custom-made cheongsam, it is absolutely gorgeous! I love our traditional clothing.

A Long Break from Blogger

This has been a while since I last posted. In June I left for China from Italy and as you know, the internet censorship in mainland China creates great difficulty for us to get access to some website including Blogger, I had to pause for a moment. Now I am back in the US so I am able to update a little bit here, so happy!

The picture below is taken in June when I was in Palais de l'Elysee in Paris and yes it is gorgeous! 

More Pictures are Coming SOON! : )

A Short Vacation in Paris

Char and I just arrived in Paris yesterday evening for a short vacation before we go back to the UK. Seriously speaking, I miss the sunshine in Italy so much, since the weather in Paris is horrible. Nevertheless, I finally had the chance to wear my Loro Piana leather coat, isn't it gorgeous?

Let's Go Orange

1. Having lunch in hotel The Gritti Palace in Venice
2-4. On our way to Murano.

I have to say that, even though Gritti Palace is a beautiful hotel with marvelous interior design, its customers are mostly very smug, making this hotel an uncomfortable place to stay- full of rich American tourists in search of so-called romance without even respecting the locals (no offense, there are many lovely and educated American tourists in Venice, but I have to say not in this hotel). If you just want to show off your wealthiness, why come to Venice?  


Here is the Summer

Earlier this week, Char and I went to Venice for a short vacation. I have been saving this place for so long time, because everybody told me that it is a romantic place that one should go with his beloved. So even though I live quite near Venice, I have never been here before. And we were lucky, great sunshine here in Venice- finally the summer has come.

Peacock Chair

The always romantic, classy peacock chair. Also, check this website out for the lovely contemporary peacock chair- the absolute sense of home. 


Hopelessly Romantic

I am not one of the girly kind and usually things with too many feminine elements do not interest me. However, a simple bow can bring you both loveliness and sense of romance without adding too much femininity. The Carven shoes this year definitely caught this soul. 

I tried the red one but the shoes were really uncomfortable so I bought a flat of this series instead. Something similar to the first one. I'm still waiting for a warmer weather to wear my own pair of Carven bow flats!
