i love how causal and relaxing it is in Hawaii. still, i’d like to bring a little panache to the barely there outfit. magenta is my favorite color. i pick out this crochet style fringe bikini in magenta and paired it with a double slit long skirt to stroll to the beach. i love how my skirt flowing in the sea breeze, makes it even more suitable for an island vacation. since the color of the bikini is so vibrant, nude is the color i decide to mix match with. also, a pair of champagne color Havaianas.



believe it or not, i’ve never liked the feeling of being too bare. so i accessorize myself with layers of sparkles, chains, and of course a pink Hawaiian Plumeria flower in my hair! 8-) hey, i am in Hawaii. with that being said, it is Hawaii, i keep accessories delicate and “quiet” so it’s not too much to distract other people who wants a peace of mind. i layer a delicate crystal choker along with my two staple necklaces that i always wear, which visually balances the long fringes of the bikini top. little diamond ring and diamond hand chain, a crystal bracelet to go with the choker and to add some tiny sparkles under the sun. also i add some colorful bracelets to balance out the amount of color i have on me.
oh that’s my sister next to me! i love her to pieces and a very special thanks to her for taking such amazing pictures of me in Hawaii! sisters trips are the best! <3

Winter Wonderland Ball gala dinner at New York Botanical Garden!

New York City is addicting to me because it’s always full of surprises. it is my first time going to the New York Botanical Garden and what greets us as soon we walk in is the train show! mini sized trains running through buildings, bridges, airports and familiar New York landmarks that are made of plants! it makes me like a little kid again instantly!
i keep it simple but not safe – wearing my favorite bodysuit of the moment and a black mini skirt underneath it. though the idea of the bodysuit is provocative, it is in reality a very classy and evening appropriate dress. (until i take it off when i am home *wink*)  my luxurious fox fur trim cardigan adds a classic touch to the outfit, a pair of nude heel-less platform elongates my petite frame secretly.

the charity event is sponsored by Bergdorf Goodman. therefore, it is not a surprise that the evening is studded by fabulous fashionistas. i see beautiful ball gowns, long dresses, interesting silhouettes filled up the whole space & of course the legendary Mr. Bill Cunningham is right there with them. as i walk under the Brooklyn bridge, one of the most surreal New York moments happens – Mr. Bill Cunningham takes pictures of me and i have written down my full name on his notepad! (did you hear me scream?) im still pinching myself until this day. it is literally like getting a gold star on my forehead from someone with the utmost credibility. oh, New York, im sleeping with a smile tonight.

jean+paul+gaultier+exhibitpeep into the world of Jean-Paul Gaultier.. from the sidewalk to the catwalkJean+Paul+Gaultier+poster

as you walk in the exhibition, you are greeted by Jean-Paul Gaultier himself.. well, sort of. it’s a video of his face with him giving a brief introduction of the exhibition and his design concept in both English and French that’s being projected onto the face of Jean Paul Gaultier mannequin, which is wearing designer’s iconic nautical stripes sweater and a long skirt that’s probably made of a pair of trouser.

當走進Jean Paul Gaultier 特展,你會看到設計師本人跟你簡短的以英文和法文說明介紹這次特展內容跟他的設計理念。好吧,不是真的本人,是數位投射Jean Paul Gaultier的臉部影音到穿著俱有Jean Paul Gaultier代表性的橫條紋毛衣跟長裙的人形。

jean+paul+gaultieralmost all the mannequins throughout the exhibition have the same digital projecting effect and lively facial expressions. some sing along with the music in the background, some wink at you as a surprise. i personally love when exhibitions or art installations that is actually able to interact with people in some way. it’s a really nice touch to the whole exhibition, it turns the still exhibition into more of a lively show.



of course my favorite part of the exhibition is the peep show room. dark, velvety background with rooms of provocative designs. my favorite pieces are actually displayed on a rotating platform: body suits of muscles, veins, and bones. (see below) love how it’s giving a hint of striping and exposed what’s inside a body in this peep show room.

我個人剛然是最喜歡特展裡的 peep show room。漆黑的背景,暗紅色的天鵝絨,粉紅色霓虹充滿著前衛具有挑逗性的設計。其中我最愛的三件作品就是中間旋轉平台上的連身裝:肌肉,血管,跟骨架。(見下圖)展示在這 peep show room有著褪去衣裳,赤裸裸呈現的暗示。


well, i had to take this shot.



Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition reminds me a lot of the Alexander McQueen exhibition a few seasons back in the Metropolitan Museum, the energy and style of these two designers are very similar. however, to me, the mood was very different. McQueen was heavier and more romantic compared to Gaultier, and Gaultier is more funky and sexual than McQueen.

Gaultier 特展讓我想起幾季前在大都會博物館的McQueen特展,兩位設計師的能量跟風格非常相近。但我認為兩大設計師的設計氛圍截然不同,McQueen的氛圍比起Gaultier沈重跟浪漫,而Gaultier標新立異,跟McQueen比起來更性感大膽。

im all about versatility. i did dress very “museum friendly” until the cardigan is off (and coat checked my leather jacket).. then im Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition friendly. ha. the hand beaded feather headband was my little find at the museum gift shop. wearing it, i felt like a city gypsy who traveled to brooklyn.
thank you brooklyn museum, it was fun.


我的打扮永遠是多元化。我其實打扮得十分適合參觀博物館,只是把我的毛衣外套脫掉就變成適合參觀Jean Paul Gaultier特展。呵呵。頭飾是在博物館的精品店看到的。戴著它感覺像個城市吉普賽流浪到布魯克林囉!
