Cher2: nail polish heaven

I've been away from here for the past little while, having traded Sydney for a fast paced Hong Konger's life (thank god for university breaks) and shopping to my heart's content. Back now and I must introduce everyone to one of my favorite shops- Cher2, a discount nail polish retailer (did a google search a while ago and couldn't believe the lack of results that came back). The range is amazing and bargain hunting (OPI for less than 10AUD!) could just be my middle name, so what not to love?

Look at the website for the store list- it might involve navigating dark old elevators but the result is well worth it.

looking at life through magic glasses

the big guns

Tommy Ton of Jak & Jill and Phil Oh of Streetpeeper. These two are practically street style photographer royalty.

standout style

Valerie Soh, of, dressed so impeccably all through fashion week, was very friendly and as such a joy to photograph. I've been wondering who she was ever since RAFW- at that point in time I saw as a very stylish showgoer, with the right amount of bohemian fun and quirkiness thrown in (I mean, look at those stockings! They've got fringing running down the back!). So glad I now have a name to put to the face.

Chanel 'The Tale of a Fairy'

Karl Lagerfeld makes the most amazing short films. Made for the 2011/2012 cruise collection, the style of this film- with the use of B&W- for some reason makes me think of those silent films from ages past. Such a glorious idealized fantasy life with a wardrobe of Chanel.

RAFW: Mok Theorem

First of five designers from the New Generation 1 show, the Mok sisters came out with pieces that were a fine balance between structure and flow, and each were so impeccably well styled. I'm in love with the drapey yellow number paired with that shiny futuristic belt.
