Ritz-Carlton Beijing Winter Wedding Fair

It’s a gorgeous deep-blue-sky day in Beijing again today, hooray! The fresh air and sunshine is doing wonders for my mood :)

Here are some pictures from the Beijing Winter Wedding Fair held at the Ritz-Carlton last Saturday.  The Ritz-Carlton put on a beautiful show which included a collection of wedding gowns from British designer Jenny Packham and L.A based couture fashion designer Monique Lhuillier, plus the eponymous Lusso Couture Fur collection (a collaboration between menswear designer David Ubl and Lusso creative director Sasa Lin). The event included Sasa Lin for Harper’s Bazaar Jewelry, D-SATA by CuR, and Bobbi Brown, and guests had a chance to talk to make-up experts, or browse through gorgeous displays of  jewelry and wedding dresses after the show.  I’ve posted a few pictures of my favourite dresses for you to see - what do you think of the designs?

Close up shots of what I wore will be posted tomorrow! :) Happy Hump Day all!

Woollen sweater + German Christmas market!

Hello lovely readers! :) I wanted to say a big thank you to those who sent me kind words of support on my nzgirl.co.nz articles, I appreciate it so much!

Here I am wearing one of my new woollen sweaters - a fairly casual outfit I chose for visiting the German Christmas market on Saturday :) The Christmas market is an annual event held at the German Embassy, where you can buy Christmas decorations, slurp cold beer or hot glühwein, make donations or purchases to support local charities, enjoy decorated gingerbread cookies and warm apple cider, and try different kinds of German snacks. That reminds me: fresh-out-of-the-oven pretzels (‘bretzel’) are SO delicious! ;)  It was the first time I’ve really felt like Christmas is getting close – and as you can tell I was pretty excited by the Christmas advent calendar my lovely friend Malaika bought for me, haha! ;)

I really need to get on to my Christmas shopping (can you believe it’s December on Thursday already!). Have you started? Whats your secret to present shopping? I always find it so difficult! :) Well I hope you are having a wonderful start to your Tuesday, and will see you again tomorrow!

Winter wool :)

Apologies  for lack of posting on the weekend again.. it was seriously hectic and I hardly had time to sit down in front of my computer! I have a lot to share with you later, but first I would like to introduce my new woolly friends! I love big knits in winter, but a lot of the ones found in chain stores are acrylic. Beijing winters are super dry, and dry+acrylic = crazy static hair and mini electric shocks! Not the best look.. haha ;) The solution was found in a tiny store called ‘i.f’ newly opened on Xiaoyun Lu around the corner from my apartment. This place stocks great knits and sweaters either imported from Korea, or made here in China in Hangzhou – and sold at very reasonable prices. Best of all, they are 100% wool – soft, warm, and static-free! :) I will do an outfit post with these soon.. I’ve been wearing them nonstop since I got them! :)

Hope you’ve had a good weekend, and your Monday is full of good things! :)
