From China With Chic

It’s hard to believe but some people think that label “Made in China” on clothes is a sign of bad quality. I’d like to advise those snobs sceptical minds to visit site of Shanghai Tang.

Pink Silk Cotton Stone Button Short Sleeve Qipao Top, black 3/4 Sleeve Silk BlouseQuilted Jacquard Shorts and Gingko Embroidery Tassel Silk Box Clutch are real pleasure for fashionista’s eye.

Shanghai Tang‘s knitwear is a pure luxury. I like Cashmere Silk Long Sleeve Lined Royal Leaf Zip Cardigan (silk lining make this piese even more posh) and Cashmere-Silk Reversible Jade Cardigan.

And as dress obsessed person I have no other choice but to fall in love with Wool Contrast Strap Short Sleeve Qipao Dress (vertical straps make our bodies more slimmer).

It will look even more cute with Gingko Embroidery Tassel Silk Box ClutchKenneth Jay Lane‘s White And Red Enamel Branch RingCrystal And Coral Branch Eurowire Earring and Magrit‘s Sofie.

Few thoughts about style and Ottoman Hands jewellery

For me stylish woman is someone who choose the stuff which suits her best doesn’t matter what all those recent trends dictate us. Got chisseled shoulders? Wear wide neck tops and dresses! You fingers are long and and wrists are thin – invest in rings and bracelets. Also you have to wear all your things with confidence and dignity even they cost pennies. If you don’t have this quality you will look like a mule in horse harness (we Russians say “like crow in peacocks feathers”) even in haute couture pieces and posh jewellery.

Why I’m telling all those things? Well, Ottoman Hands jewellery does not belong to Van Cleef & Arpels league, but wearing it you can feel yourself The Queen of Sheba (if you poses that magic quality, of course). By the way, Ottoman Hands jewellery is handmade and inspired by rich and exotic Turkish culture.

I like Labradorite, Aqua Chalcedony and Rose Quartz Three Stone RingEvil Eye Studs and Gold Dipped Pink Agate Necklace.

I guess Ottoman Hands Coral Agate Reversed Disc Earrings will look great with Filippa K‘s cute Layered V-Neck Top WhiteRebecca Taylor‘s wide Crepe PantMarc Cain‘s Clutch Bag In Crocodile Look and Magrit‘s Violeta pumps.

Yellow, Red, Green and White

Some personal information about me: when the weather is nasty, my eyes start craving for bright colours.

Yellow Maxi Trapeze Dress Sunglow, created by Swedish designers for Filippa K, will look stylish with Christina Debs‘s green earrings and ring from Candy Pop collection, Aquazzura‘s red Zani Pump 105 and Roger Vivier‘s lovely Mini Love Tattoo Clutch in Patient Leather.

Silver jewellery with White & Blue Clothes

In my opinion (sorry, I forgot to add very important adjective “humble”) simple viscose clothes – ALLSAINTS‘s Juba Pina Tee and Tiger Of Sweden‘s Theaz Shorts -and simple Jack Rogers‘s Alana Sandal will look more stylish with the help of cute Maile Ilima‘s silver jewellery – Hawaiian Ocean Coral Branch Pendant and Sterling Silver Maile Hawaiian Ring.

Pink dress and Co

It seems to me Tibi‘s Corset Knit Structured Dress, Barbara Umbel‘s Celestial Cuff and Moonlight/Starlight Ring Stack, Launer‘s Judi Handbag and Chie Mihara‘s vintage-inspired sandals Lepanto-A White will look stylish and feminine together.

Posh in white, gold and turquoise

Cushnie et Ochs‘s white Plunge Gown With Gold Chains + Kayo Saito‘s gold Plume Long Earrings and Plume Ring No 1 + Duccio Venturi‘s satin pumps Etere Bis + Judith Leiber‘s sophisticated Peek-A-Boo Peacock Minaudiere = elegant outfit for a New Year party.

Memories about life in the USSR and retro-outfit

In times of the Soviet Union for most of people it was very difficult to get latest fashion clothes and women had no other choice but to learn how to make something from nothing. From one hand such situation was very depressive from other it stimulated imagination and helped to develop your own designers skills and sense of style – each coin has 2 sides, right?
I remember when I was a child in 80ies in the USSR corduroy pants were in the list of the most desirable fashion things: if you got them you automatically join the club of stylish girls and boys.

Volcom‘s corduroy Wale Watching Pants, Zimmermann‘s Karmic Bell Sleeve Blouse, Chie Mihara‘s Zalena Brown shoes and Melinda Maria‘s big Sophie Pod Ring Gold Coral White CZ will make a pretty retro-outfit.
