Nina Ricci 2011 Pre-fall

I used to buy fashion magazine very often, and I just liked to touch and feel the paper to see those gorgeous clothes. After using Ipad and download application, I totally love it. It’s incredible to see fashion show in high definition resolution and I am now so obsessed with application. High recommended this application (free download)

Anyway, when I saw Nina Ricci’s pre-fall 2011, I really love the colour combination, the cutting and the good quality of materials, most importantly it suits my style.

I am always passionate for fashion, but I have my own style – which I like elegant, classical and colourful & fun! Fashion, music and perfume are all very personal. There is no right or wrong, and whether you like it or not. They are also inspiration in life, and I don’t think I can live without these 3 items.

Autumn and Winter Fashion Trend 2010

I do like 2010 fall selections, especially Gucci, Chole, Michael Kors, and Stella Mccartney, they are my favourites and my style. This year, the main colour is no longer black and white. Camel, military-green, earthy colour and grey colour was appeared quite a lot in this fall fashion. Moreover, 1960-80’s style is back. You can see more fur, oversize sweaters, and biker coats, which are everywhere.

Simple, elegant cut, over-knee boots, socks in high heels, big fur coats, and oversize jumper are the most elements for this fall shopping. I can’t resist to buy the camel coat already for my autumn and winter collection – it was expensive, but it was certainly so pretty. Even though I love Summer, it is getting Autumn, and I can’t wait to have more Autumn’s outfits. Autumn is a romantic season with yellow leaves and cold wind.

New Court Shoes

I love this cherry colour leather court shoes. The first time I saw it, I felt in love with it and bought it immediately. It was quite pricy, but I just can’t resist. This year is really trendy for court shoes. It is smart casual style, and I haven’t tried any court shoes before. I think I will wear it everyday and it is so comfortable to wear as well. Do you like it?

Our New House in Leeds

We have moved in to Leeds for two and half months now, and always add some new furnitures or decoration in the house. It feels like a proper cozy and warm home now. Compared with London, we got a lot of spaces of the house in Leeds, and it is a nice modern stylish flat with open kitchen, 2 rooms and 2 bathrooms (one for John’s office and also be a guest room and one for us with a massive wardrobe to put my shoes and clothes, which is the highlight of the flat).

We do really enjoy the location of city centre and so easy to go shopping and eat out just by walking 5 minutes. I will imagine that the house will be full of good memories for us, and we do enjoy living in Leeds so far. However, I do miss London from time to time, missing its busy,  metropolitan and my friends, and the most importantly so many choices of shopping which that Leeds can not compared with.

Moved from London to Leeds…

We decided to leave London and living in Leeds for a year to experience different cities of the UK. It has been two years for me leaving in London. It was sad to leave the charming London and my friends. However, life is always on the move.

We live in the financial city centre Wellington Street in Leeds, and 5 minutes walk to the shopping centre, thus easily to find many restaurants and supermarkets for us. Location is perfect. Besides, the most exciting me is the our new apartment. It is 8 floor high, new, modern, spacious with 900 sqt with en-suit, plus one supermarket is just downstairs. What’s more, I got a fantastic huge wardrobe to fit all my clothes and shoes. John got a big spacious office room. This is exactly what we need.

In early March, we moved to the apartment and started to clean and made our home in Leeds. Leeds for us was a complete stranger, only John’s sister lives in Leeds. But I am sure we will explore the Yorkshire well in the future. Hopefully after all settling down, we will buy a car soon and start our adventure journey.

I love our new flat and new life – so many excitements to discover!

Abercrombie & Fitch

Abercrombie & Fitch is a youthful brand of casual apparel from California. With extremely popular in the hight street, London in Mayfair and one from Milan are the only shops in Europe. Thousands of tourists and local people shop there everyday.

The location is the beginning / ending of Savile Row, depends which direction you are. It was quite hidden and opposition of the museum. The store is famous that they only recruit young, fit, pretty faces to be their staff. When you walk in, it feels like a night club rather than a normal shop. It smells perfume in the air and even in the clothes, and it appears dark with loud disco music.

The funny thing is every time I shop there, I don’t know whether I should look at the staff who look like models with so pretty faces, or the clothes. The staff is chatting, dancing, but also helping people out. However, it was certainly a unusual shopping experience. The price is quite expensive compared with normal retail shops, but you are buying the brand and the images and of course, they never on sales

So what is their image? Some people might say that Abercrombie & Fitch’s image is young, blonde, rich-middle-class but rather superficial. Although superficial, I do like their beech casual look and so colourful. More importantly, it has XS sizes for me. It is hard to find XS (extra small sizes in the UK for normal shops). Surprisingly that there are so many middle-ages people shopping there as well. Whether they buy for themselves or buy for someone, I guess that everyone like Abercrombie’s image – young and fit.

I like the colourful T-shirt, pants and bikini. Last weekend I bought a leather flip flop for this summer. It was quite pricy, but it was fun to shop there. For such a unique shop and experience, it is worth to maintain in my blog, and definitely will bring my friends there.

小鹿是一个年轻阳光沙滩的休闲品牌,落于美国加州。因为超级受年轻朋友们的欢迎,整个欧洲只有伦敦和米兰两家。每天都有上千的旅客因为它的名气去那里购物。地理位置在高级购物街Mayfair – 全伦敦最贵的地皮。店面十分隐密,正对着一个博物馆的对面。店名专么没有打出来,不知道的人走过还以为里面是个酒吧或夜总会。





Winter Shoes Collection

Recently I have bought some winter boots because I don’t have much winter boots. But now I think I have enough for this winter and keep my feet warm and satisfied. I need to save up from now. No more new shoes or clothes. Happy New Year soon and wish best of all.

We are heading to have New Year dinner with friends to celebrate 2010. Which shoes should I wear tonight? It is raining outside, maybe I will wear the blue boots.


My Autumn New Collection shoes

My shoes

Nice back to London and have my own space and life back. I do feel sad to leave my family and niece, as well as good friends in GZ. I had a fabulous time in GZ and Shantou. Thanks all the friends’ dinners and treats in China.

As a shoes lover, I also bought some of the new shoes back to London. I especially like the new blue boots it costs me hundreds of ‘Chairman Mao’ but I just love it so much and it’s very comfortable to walk. While I organised my clothes and shoes, I took some pictures to remind me how many pair of shoes I have. I don’t think it’s many pairs because I am a greedy girl. John always thinks I spend too much on shoes and shopping. Haha…

London is 9 to 15 degrees, and it’s Autumn towards Winter. We properly will see bonfire next week and go to see Mew’s concert soon. We will go to have dinner with my London friends this weekend to catch up. Look forward to seeing them.
