Miss Saigon

Last week, I was in Vietnam for five days, in Ho Chi Minh City (better known as Saigon) to be exact.
My first impression was wow – this place is authentically..european. French to be exact.
Nothing has changed since the last time I visited Saigon in 2012, and that sorta worked in my favor because during the previous trip I discovered the best crepe joint for dessert, and a great italian place! If its not obvious yet, I love food! ✌️

But that tune will change soon because I am going on a no-carb diet. I’ll be blogging about it at the end of every week, just to show you how I make it thru (or didnt make it, who knows, its up for debate!) 😂

But i’m positively excited about it! Are you on a special diet? Share with me!

For now..let me share some pictures I took I in Vietnam.

That was at the Notredame cathedral and the bricks were vandalised with random names(albeit beautifully to me). Lots of history with this church! Loved the walls alot.

These ones below are taken along the main streets of Saigon! Truly the simple life, I do envy some aspects of it. Its definitely a booming country with lots of potential and its also super duper interesting because people who have a war history with this country want to come back here for some kind of closure. I heard that the average age is under 30! I mean, wow!

Colorful Resolutions

So have your 2015 resolutions kicked in yet? Mine did today – and that is to wear color.

I had a sneaky suspicion that wasnt ever going to be a successful thing to do from the moment the thought of it entered my head…but try I must!

What do you think? 😂❤️

Givenchy in the woods

Today is about running around in Givenchy.

I have a serious shoe fetish and while nothing quite makes my heart race like a shiny pointy stiletto pump, I have to woefully admit… I’m not big on wearing them every other day! I guess you can blame my 5’8 height for that, or well, you can blame my unrivalled dedication to flat shoes. 😬
Step into my shoe closet though and you’ll see rows and rows of heels that I have acquired…..as furniture. (Well tbh, they do make great mantlepieces!)

So anyway today I decided to give these Givenchy babies a spin, under a navy blue smart sleeveless blazer (so thats another thing i’m obsessed about) and a cute striped skirt. And to get that color pop – a bright red Chanel clutch!

Hollywood in my hybrid outfit!

This is the closest I have been to the sign, and I was pretty excited on the drive up there. Absolutely loved cruising through the curvy roads up and down the hills in my ford mustang with the top down especially because in March the weather in LA is pretty amazing! Its hot – and I mean really hot it can burn you when you’re in the open sun but yet again, the winds can get a little naughty near the coast (thats when you wish you didn’t have shorts on!)

To the Hollywood sign, the weather was pretty much in between. Pretty windy and then hot and then chilly. I was ready to leave our hotel, Mondrian, in just a dress but I just grabbed on a sweater just in case. And I was happy I did! 😀

Here I’m wearing a dress by Three Floor with a cropped sweater of a similar shade over it and I think it looks great! This dress can do the double-duty, which is awesome. Hello bang for your buck! 

Here is what the dress looks like on its own, snapped with my iPhone 5s in Malibu at sunset.

I’m such a huge fan of Three Floor. The brand is so energetic, refreshing and a real game changer when it comes to dressing like a lady. It gives the ladylike look a loaded gun. What I love most about Three Floor is plainly the fabric, oh my god, the fabric. Plus, they make clothes that make it look awesome either way – if you’re dressing up (good for you) or like me if you prefer to dress it down you can do so by putting on a pair of flats without the outfit looking like its out of place.(yes ladies it all works out in your favour!)

If you’re looking to purchase an edgy (I hate to throw around such a cliche word but that’s all i have right now) dress for prom, or if you’re going as a wedding guest (on second note, beware all eyes on you instead) or you know, if you’re just like me, buying just because the stuffs look pretty damn amazing – look to Three Floor. I’m totally sure you’ll find something you need to click “Add to Cart” in about two seconds.
