I had a chance to work with Fashion Photographer and Blogger, Gabriela Bell which you might know her as
@chiclebelle on Instagram when I was living in Milan. Gabri and I decided to wake up early in on a breezy Sunday in Italian Spring to this special photoshoot together and I have to say that the photos we got worth a lot more than hours that we could have spent sleeping in on a Sunday morning. I believe that when you put two people with the same vision and passion together, they are unstoppable. I am so grateful to have met this girl!!
For this look I chose to wear this beautiful Dior-inspired hi-low floral skirt from ASOS, my current favourite Dior Technologic Sunglasses, simple black long sleeve top from Zara, Statement floral necklace from Accessorize, Fur collar leather jacket from Hide Label and Purple Heels from Miista. As for the photo spot, we think there is no better spot to do this special shoot than the iconic Duomo di Milano. Scroll down to enjoy the work we have created together :)

Summer is finally here! Well at least in most parts of the world including Europe and America :) I am so jealous of everyone who had warm sun and clear blue sky right now because as I am typing this I am watching the rain pouring down and the sky turns dark even though it is just 6PM.
To get myself in into summer mood, I booked myself a plane ticket to Sydney at the end of the year. Yep you heard it right, it will during the new year holidays which is summer in Australia and I am already shopping online, preparing my outfits for summer! I also booked my stay on Airbnb for my trip. Airbnb said only 1% of the places is available during the dates selected so turned out I am not much of an early bird after all. I just can wait to lay down on the warm sands, watching clear blue sky while tanning on Bondi beach. Meanwhile I want to share with you the outfits I have picked for my holidays from one of my favorite brands, For Love & Lemons, an absolutely must have brand for boho-chic girls.
I have picked out 16 hero pieces including dresses (of course), tops, playsuits, bikinis, and lingerie from For Love and Lemons that I am dreaming of wearing during summer and on my island getaways. As for the color tone, I feel like going for warmer tones this season so I picked nude, beige, red, pink and white which is always right for summer.
A year ago I have came across this label called "Lost Ink" on Asos and it has quickly became one of my favourite high street label. Taking the inspiration from London' street style, this label know a thing or two about making a statement, fluid fabric, striking prints and feminine silhouettes, what more could you have asked for in a dress? The Lost Ink Horse Print Maxi Dress with Lace Up Belt in particular caught my attention. Well I have seen it since last year but I thought the dress would be too long for me as it was already on the floor length on the model but once the dress came back in stock in my size, I knew I had to get my hands on it and I did not regret, The day I was wearing this dress, walking in Porta Venezia area of Milan, all eyes were on me!! NO I was not exaggerating, my photographer and I were interrupted a couple of times because people want to take a photo of me(?) I did not realized the impact one dress could have had on the crowd but now I know. Pick the right dress and you can conquer the world or in this case turns a girl into a star for an hour :P

With this chapter closing on my life, I realise I have the power to turn my dream into reality...Good bye Milano!!
It's official I have left Milan and have moved back to Bangkok for... I don't know how long. Maybe longer than I thought or maybe shorter than I thought. I don't want to put the 'end date' as it has never been as planned. I was supposed to be in Milan for 2 years but instead I was there for a year. I was so in love with the city when I was visiting but once I became a residence, I start seeing things that I did not see, experience things I did not experience as a tourist. There were some culture shock, some unexpected things that happened in Italy but at the same time there were so many good things that happened to me here. I guess the love-hate relationship is the sign that I have been living in one place for a long time, long enough to justify whether this is a place I would like to settle down and spend the rest of my life there or not. And my answer is No. Though it was a great experience and a dream came true to be living in Milan, I could not see myself living there in a long term therefore I am still on the quest of searching for the perfect city to live in. Well maybe not a perfect one, but I believe that once I find that city I would be able to tell myself that I am 'home'
