“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!

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…

Choker Top and Fringed Poncho

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.
