Nude Is Never Out of Style

“You just need to break the rules sometimes. It is essential to note that imperfection is beauty in its most natural state, and I find this realization to be very provocative and artistic.” 

Initially, I thought I had a dilemma when I want to wear this off-shoulder button up shirt and nude dress at the same time. Of course, it is stylishly possible!

Most people wear off-shoulder shirts like these with pants, and they stay tucked inside. This is because it tends to give the illusion of a taller and slimmer figure by tightening the waistline and elongating the legs. Since I am wearing a dress underneath, I do not have that option, but it totally works out fine! Dressing up is not always about following the guidelines. Just enjoy your liberty for experimentation and personalization.

Cheap Chic in Shanghai

“Looking stylish is not about the expensive price tags. It is merely about having a sense of style and putting the pieces together.”

I am in the center of Jing’An (静安), an area in Shanghai where luxury blings at every corner. Whether it be the shiny sports cars and fine watches, carats of diamonds, big labels handbags you see every 3 seconds you walk down the streets, the retail spaces, the grand hotel lobbies, the…, and the… The list is endless, because we are in China, home to 40% of the world’s luxury consumers.

Back when I was a university student in Shanghai, I did 2 of my internships in 2 of these skyscrapers in the background. The first one was at LVMH Fashion Group, and the second at Burberry. Strolling down this West Nanjing Rd. (南京西路), really brings back many fond memories of the years that I spent in this city. Despite my personal preference and professional experience in the luxury fashion industry, I sincerely believe that looking stylish is not about wearing the most expensive pieces. It is rather about you being true to your own taste and budget, and wearing what you feel really confident in. There is no need to
pretend…

Cream and Blue Elegance

By on May 18, 2017
Another urban chic look from the Hong Kong trip.

Karin Karas takes us to the renowned Shelley Street in Central, Hong Kong. I opt for solid color items with audacious colors like blue and orange. I could not wait to wear my favorite blue summer dress, so here it is, paired with the creamy Tencel Wrap long-sleeve tunic from Hana Tajima 2017 Spring/Summer collection for Uniqlo. There are so many ways to wear this tunic…

Earth Tone Minimalism in Hong Kong

By on May 5, 2017

“Once you are high up, go on with the wind and the beautiful mighty birds, but never forget your roots and the humble worms that surround.”

Down-to-earth and flying high

There is an endless sea of skyscrapers in Hong Kong, because space is such a scarce resource. They are no doubt the essence of Hong Kong, therefore, a sight worth capturing. Today fashion photographer Karin Karas takes us high up to a rooftop in Kennedy Town, an area that is currently being graced by Hong Kong’s urban expansion.

I carry the earthly vibe in 4 shades of solid brown in my outfit up to the rooftop that overlook pastel buildings.

Choker Top and Fringed Poncho

By on February 28, 2017
It was the moment when the wind blew that my hair and fringes on my poncho drifted together harmoniously. I simply love the ensemble of the moment.

“It was the moment when the wind blew that my hair and fringes on my poncho drifted together harmoniously. I simply love the ensemble of the moment.”

Ok, let’s do a reality check here. I’m from a tropical country – Thailand. It’s always estimably 30ºC, all year long. I go out in the winter completely layered, like onions. I hustle when I walk outside because I can’t wait to be inside somewhere warm and still keep my coats on, for at least 20 minutes. Sometimes, I don’t take my coats off at all!

Despite my sensitivity to the cold, it was a really beautiful day with blue sky in the Beaujolais, with the special visit of the snow—lots of it! Therefore, we had to go outside to enjoy it, played snow balls fights, and of course, take some pictures! The average temperature on this day ranged from -1ºC to -5ºC. Our iPhones shut down multiple times while we were outside. Yes, so freezing cold even our most loyal digital companions ditched us (“How dare you brought us out in this numbing cold and expect us to finely function?! Bye bye!”).

Bold Blue Layers and Classic Beige Coat

By on January 15, 2017

This is my first blog post, ever!

Today I visited Châtillon-d’Azergues, a small medieval village in the Beaujolais area. The region is famous for its golden architecture constructed by golden-colored stones, hence the name Pays des Pierres Dorées (Country of the Golden Stones).

I believe wearing some cobalt blue will complement the various shades of golden yellow. So, I have decided to wear my warm ultramarine turtleneck from Uniqlo with the midnight blue long cardigan coat from Zara. I have always loved the soft, tiny glitters scattered across the coat. They give such a polished and understated glam touch.
