“Artworks can tell us so much about life and philosophy without speaking a word, without making any noise. What a contrary to my urban life with multitudes of sounds that usually contain little significance.”

Cadaqués is absolutely the place to be for the summer. A beautiful town in Catalonia, Spain, and home to the famous artist Salvador Dalí, I was instantly lost in a picturesque paradise.

My favorite part about this trip is definitely visiting Dalí’s house in Portlligat. As a teenager, I spent half of my last high school year in the art studio. I drew and painted as I wished, and I relished the freedom so. Artworks can tell us so much about life and philosophy without speaking a word, without making any noise. What a contrary to my urban life with multitudes of sounds that usually contain little significance.
I appreciate how the Dalinian symbols inspire me: hard on the outside and soft on the inside like the snail or the egg (Isn’t this true for most people too?), mystery in the drawer, strength of the elephant, and the mastery of time of the clock that governs human life. I admit that realizing how fast time progresses makes me nervous!

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.

“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
