STYLE MUSINGS OF THE 21ST CENTURY

Outside the Theysken’s theory show. I met the lovely ladies from STYLELIKEU.com. Instantly connected and scheduled me in their busy schedule to do the most in depth interview i’ve done to date. Not a video of me talking about trends and style but what inspires me. We talked about family, life, wisdom, idols, governments, values, beliefs …oh and fashion. =>

PHILLIP LIM: MOST MEMORABLE OF NYFW



Going to fashion shows is all about the experience. The journey. I mean… sure the clothes too but if we wanted to see the clothes we can go on style.com. Watch live streams. Phillip Lim show was really memorable for me. Getting in wasn’t easy.
Sitting there though waiting for the show to start, everyone was staring at the little door at the start of the runway. Waiting for the music. It’s the energy of being somewhere with hundreds of people looking at the exact same spot. Waiting for the exact same thing. Makes me smile. Oddly heart warming.
Its like being at a wedding when everyone is looking and waiting for the bride and groom to come out, and the moment they do. Cameras flash, you whisper to the one next to you and say how much you love that dress. You see the whole collection and the designer comes out…you’re happy for them, proud of them and excited for them. Breath a sigh of relieve, think “they did it!!” and leave the show.

OYSTER BAR AT GRAND CENTRAL

Its definitely one of those places where you go for the history and gorgeous ceilings. hahaha. The caviar egg sandwich (which i don’t have a picture of cause i stuffed it down so quickly) was pretty  intense. A $23 sandwich that makes you feel like your royalty. priceless.

OH YEA!

During NYFW it’s hard to not snap around. Every one is so well dressed. Contributing to the fashion industry in every way possible. I love to see people doing their part, doing what they do best. And no, fashion is not only about the clothes.

PETRA MIDDELTHON EXPERIENCE

On a great day you breakfast at a nice restaurant. On an amazing day you have breakfast at a nice restaurant with the fashion director of ELLE Norway. Extract her brain juice and try your best to soak it all up.
Petra’s best advice:
1) never give up
2) don’t run when you haven’t learned to walk
3) give your best in everything you take on
4) be open to what inspires you and write them down if you have to

American Apparel sweater and pants
Chicco Ruiz shoes @ opening ceremony
Vintage clutch

With Three huge suitcases full of my favorite clothes and shoes. I couldn’t help but change every chance i had. haha Every time i went back to the hotel i changed. This whole outfit i bought on the day .. like i said before haha im one of those people who cannot wait to wear new clothes so of course… bought by day worn by night. Walked to 5 Napkin burger (Hell’s kitchen) from my hotel wearing this. The Original burger was soo good and filling. Especially loved the thin and dry fries.

There has been news about American Apparel shutting down soon. boohoo. Im seriously saddened by that, since 1/4 of my wardrobe is AA. Go Grab a piece of AA before its gone.

ANNA SHEFFIELD BRIDAL & COMMITMENT

We were invited by Anna herself to go check out her New jewelry line, Anna Sheffield Bridal & Commitment Jewelry.
The preview located in a gorgeous suit at the Standard hotel! 10 points!  Known for her Bing Bang, sweet but edgy jewelry, you definitely see that she’s carried a bit of her edge to this Bridal collection. One of her rings in the collection has “not to be fucked with” engraved on it. Imagine putting that ring on your loved one at the wedding ceremony haha.
She said in our last interview “don’t let anyone tell you your ideas are wrong.” Well, with this collection i feel she has really gone with her vision, which i admire her for, very much. With the upside down diamond “pyramids” i feel she went against the norm of how diamonds are supposed to be used.

“I’ve always loved making engagement rings and bands for my clients and friends. It is amazing to create jewelry that is not only a symbol of a union, but also expresses something so timeless and distinctive as the wearers’ love and devotion for one another” says Anna.

KATZ’S

Zara lace top
Vintage pink shorts
Eryn Brinie blazer

Katz’s Deli is one of those MUST go places to eat in NYC. If you’re a true foodie you’d appreciate the disgustingly tender “fresh” pastrami. You know it’s good when it’s $15.75 for meat on rye! I’ve been obsessed with going to this place ever seeing it on TLC. Now that i’ve tried it, i recommend it. The rich history of this place is enough to satisfy your hunger.

Stella McCartney blazer @Lane Crawford
Chicco Ruiz  shoes @Opening Ceremony
Cindiddy x Matahari clutch @I.T (coming soon)
Monki necklace

I got these shoes from Opening Ceremony two days ago and I LOVE!!! them. They are incredibly comfortable and look kinda cute. haha. Matched perfectly with my Furry clutch too, though i probably can’t say it matched the NYC weather today cause it was Damnnn hot! Im kinda liking this masculin thing i have going on here. Very minimalistic i’d say. Those Elizabeth and James glasses and NARS red lips have been my staples for the past 5 days of NYFW. Can’t forget my Nokia N8 of course! I’ve been playing with the Molome app (which you can get on the OVI store… also, if you own a Nokia smart phone. Please download the Cindiddy ovi app and get live feeds! )

N21 AT THE PLAZA

N21 pink knit top
Monki leather shorts
Sergio Rossi heels
Vintage gold clutch

Ok, one thing i really didn’t expect from going to NYFW was the amazing group of fashion photographers that go to every show to do street style snaps. They are at almost every show, every day, going from place to place. Very hard working group of enthusiastic artists. I’ve had the honor to meet and chat to a few of these lovely people. Candice Lake who is currently shooting for British Vogue (i saw your feature on style.com before coming for NYFW and did not expect to get to meet you!) and  Tamu Mcpherson from all the pretty birds. I admire you all. Dearly and enviously.

I also saw Scott Schuman and Garance Dore today outside the plaza and can i just say! i was totally star struck.

Like the fan that i am.. i waited for ADR but i couldn’t catch her. =<

After today, all i want to say to you guys is %#*$&%#$()^%*(@#&$(#@%*^#)@&%. That’s all.

Good night, ladies and gents.

L.A.M.B

We were running kind of late for Blue Mercury so didn’t get to spend much time at LAMB. The collection was really exciting with LAMB’s signature prints, jumpsuits, purses and leopard print. Staying true to Gwen’s (or LAMB’s) aesthetic. I feel like she’s been doing the green, yellow and red for as long as i remember. So good for her on sticking with what she likes cause we all know how hard it is to do similar things in fashion and don’t lose credibility.

ANNA MOMENT AT DEREK LAM



Stella McCartney lace dress @ Lane Crawford
YSL tributes
Celine bag

The Derek Lam show left me speechless today. Not only because i was in love with the cut out pattern theme he had going on through out his Spring 12 collection But!! seeing Anna Wintour, Nina Garcia, Bill Cunningham, Susie bubble, Sarah Rutson, ANNA DELLA RUSSO and a bunch of other fashion celebs! I was seriously star struck. I walked up to Anna Della Russo… touched her arm and creepily asked her for a photo! URGHH!! i love her SO much… so so much. I only wish now that i took one with her. The Derek Lam show was such so exciting for Ricardo and i. After today, i totally realize just how much of a fashion Geek i am when im usually not excited to see celebrities or meet celebrities.
So, back to the show. The first dress i saw and was gasping over what the bright orange one piece with the cut out panel in front. So! gorgeous. It sort of reminded me of these traditional chinese baskets. It seems that squares were also a clear theme of the collection. The sequin dress with the squared neck line is kind of a much have. The sudden Prints that came out from backstage also wowed me.

Great collection! Congrats Derek Lam!

P.S. ANNA DELLA RUSSO!! I LOVE YOU!

IS IT STRANGE OR IS IT LOVE

Topshop crochet like dress (LOVE)
Soludos x Opening Ceremony denim flats

Are you one of those people who, cannot wait till the next day to wear what you JUST bought and will sacrifice flashing a portion of NYC cause you just HAD to wear that new dress, right away?? haha I AM ! Yea… i got this dress from Topshop today and literally took my clothes and shoes off in the cab (while traveling from one shopping spot to another) and changed into a whole other outfit. I swear i heard the dress and shoes screaming from the bags for me to put them on. I had to say “sorry Sass & Bide.”(see previous post.) Is it strange? Or is it love? haha i can’t tell.

SASSY IN SASS & BIDE

Sass & Bide gorrrgeous dress
Vintage clutch

Our challenge today was to buy vintage items (how ever many items you like) under $100 and film the journey. Unfortunately i didn’t win but congrats Barbro! To be honest, im really bad at finding good vintage pieces (definitely a skill set) and im not very good at wearing vintage. I feel it’s a whole other fashion world i need to venture into. Seeing Barbro and Jessica wearing their vintage outfits really inspired me. So, good job ladies!!! Dinner at 5 napkin burger joint at Hell’s Kitchen! YUM MEE!
Like yesterday, the day before and the day before that! i am so sleepy and it’s only 12!

OH OH OH!
Please check out my photo feature on Vogue Italia and Nordstorm.com!! i am SOOoOoOoooo Happy!

Tomorrow is another amazing day. I just Know it.
Good night everyone,

NEWBIE AT LINCOLN CENTER

Phillip Lim @Lane Crawford leather sleeve top
Monki leather shorts
Zara heels
Celine bag

Another long day in NYC, the bomb threats caused some pretty grueling traffic !! there were check points at every other block. I love this Phillip Lim top which was perfect for New York weather. One second you’re hot, the other you’re freezing. Insane. Apparently it’s way cheaper here then in HK (thanks for the little insight Mr.BB) So i didn’t win tonight’s Nokia x Elle challenge but challenge 2 comes at 9 am tomorrow and im pretty darn excited. Shopping for Vintage is one of my must dos in NYC so i guess challenge 2 IS a reward in itself! haha
First stop today was Lincoln Center, im in love with the atmosphere! Everyone is extremely friendly and well dressed! (street style photos from today will be in another post.) Followed by an afternoon at the Mets, hoping to hear SJP’s audio tour, only to find that the tour was over since the 7th. boohoo. Not only that! but the “yoghurt” truck cheated us with what was more like ice cream then froyo. yes. boohoo. The day got better as we cruised around New York’s harbor and of course.. we finished the day off with an amazing (full) meal at Ruby Foo in Times Square. Happy Birthday KATIE!!!! I am having a blast. Tomorrow will be better, im sure, as i further adjust to the time difference.

I can’t wait to check out all the blogger’s blogs i met today

Thanks for a Great day!!
Good night my loves,

I promised to take you all with me on this trip to NYC and …. haha that means multiple posts a day. Photo overload!!
It was fashion’s night out and our first stop. WeSC! only appropriate that i wear all WeSC courtesy of WeSC haha.
Founded by 5 guys who were sick of wearing skateboard attire that were more boring then stylish, they created the ever soooo successful WeSC. I especially love their coats and jeans! Cuts that are definitely more fashionable and flattering then any street style brand i know.

Great party! and check out WeSC’s collaboration with Bing Bang!

WeSC link

Nokia x Elle is having this whole project filmed, thus the camera and sound sticks =>
Woke up at 5 am today.. i am still sooo jet lagged! urgh!

BING BANG NYC BY ANNA SHEFFEILD

One of the most enticing thing about meeting designers or people in the creative industry is listening to them talk about their journey. Their experiences and evolution from where they started to where they are now. Listening to Anna Sheffeild talk about every success in every stepping stone in her life as a jewelry designer is just so inspiring and oddly touching. You feel an immense serge of passion and love in the way she talks about her design. Every stage, from a phone call to the actual design process to seeing her designs in shop or on a passerby on the street…no matter how grueling, you feel its all bittersweet for her. Anna Sheffeild is someone who doesn’t take her grey hair for granted. A genuine soul. After meeting her, im able to look at her jewelry with her stories in mind. Like how she would imagine what and how Bonnie and Clyde would wear her jewelry. With every piece that i hold in my hand i would imagine Anna, in her “messy” office, beating herself up with every detail, every hammer mark, every link that she chooses to put in her chains…pulling her hair out but all with a smile on her face.

It was so nice to meet you Anna and i wish you all the success in the world!

BREAKFAST IN HORACE



Horace leather sleeve top @Harvey Nicols
Monki shorts
Sergio Rossi booties
Cindiddy x Matahari clutch @I.T
Short and Sweet rings

Horace is a team of fashion, textile and illustration designers. Adam Entisle,  Emma Hales and Philip Grisewood. Since it’s inception in 2002 Horace collection progresses from a small project of friends doing what they love, to an international brand old in the most progressive stores across the world. With both a design studio in Bali as well as in London. Horace embodies the better of the two amazing cultures.

The top im wearing is from the winter 2011 collection, it’s actually menswear but i love the slightly over sized look. The  soft distressed leather sleeves is perfect for NYC weather. Horace at first glance is BOLD, with all the prints and chunky fur pieces. But as you look down the rack you find really amazing mix and matchable pieces e.g leather leggings that fit perfectly, leggings, fur cape. Have a look yourself at any of the following places in HK.

Harvey Nicols, DMop, Kniq,  Little Black dress, Magenta, Likelihood and Van’d.

Another day with Nokia x Elle => it’s 8:02 am over here in the Big Apple and waiting on a Challenge that will be delivered into our rooms at 9:00 am sharp! Challenge street style. hm i wonder what that could be…

Good Morning all!
