I love blogging because… Since started blogging and photographing for blog, I started to pay more attention and appreciation to little things that might be so trivial, from glorious blue sky, sparkling river to fresh blossoms on the roadside, yet I’m finding them to be great blogging inspirations and create some happy snaps!
Five words to describe myself… Typical Gemini, positive, romanticist, introvert and a thinker.
If I was born 100 years ago I would be… A Geisha in Kyoto, or a Burlesque dancer in Paris.
My fashion style is… Expressive, changeable, vintage, feminine, romantic, glamorous, vibrant and colourful.
Most collected fashion items… Shoes! I have a six-storey shoe rack in my garage and the collection is only going to grow. Beautiful shoes are forms of arts and should be framed as art pieces! I’m also obsessed with beautiful earrings, I started drawing portraits of myself in big earrings (think 80s style!) when I was in kindergarten.
Five pair of pretty yet comfy shoes for five cities… Gothenburg ultra-chic rainboots for London, Arielle de Pinto strap platform sandals for Rio, Mel jelly flats for Hong Kong, UGG sheepskin boots for Sapporo snowfields, and Lotta From Stockholm wooden clogs for Kyoto.
Most treasured item in my wardrobe… A white Shanghai Tang Chinese qi pao dress with lace sleeves, lace trimmed hem and high front slit.
Things that should never be considered as fashionable… Crocs and Birkenstock should only belong to the restaurants kitchen while Juicy Couture tracksuits and platform flip flops should be banned on flights…
On my wedding day I wore… A Victorian style wedding dress with French lace sleeves, high collar, corset back and ruffled cathedral train (hence this blog’s named Lace n Ruffles!).
Favourite shopping destinations… Barcelona, Tokyo, Kyoto and Hong Kong.
Hottest gourmet travel destinations… Hobart in Tasmania, Kyoto and Paris.
Most played songs on Spotify… One Note Samba by João Gilberto, When It’s Sleepytime Down South by Wynton Marsalis, The Girl From Ipanema by Stan Getz, J’ai Deux Amours by Madeleine Peyroux and La View En Rose by Louise Armstrong.
I smile when I… See glowing sunset, pet a fluffy British Shorthair, wear a pair of Louboutin stilettos, draped in lace and ruffles, taste a Ladurée macaron, smell freshly blossomed peonies, wake up to an exotic travel destinations, listen to mellow jazz tunes and meet people with great sense of humor…
