A Simple White Shirt – Part Six

In my humble opinion, to rock the shirt dress as a shirt dress, the wearer needs a good pair of toned and, preferably, tanned legs. At the end of last spring, I was putting on some extra weight but feeling happy and perhaps, over confident, so I decided to give my Chinatown-found shirt dress a […]

A Simple White Shirt – Part Five

Living in Perth, Western Australia in my late teens, one day, in the public Conversation Room at the language school where I attended my English classes, I met Linda, a lady who was also from Taiwan. We clicked straight away and became very good friends. Between 37 and 18, yes, Linda and I had a […]

Taiwan’s Tight Restrictions Lead To A Perfect Bob

After weeks and weeks of whinging to myself over my totally out of style hair, I decided to get a bob cut again. Ironically, the Bob, which I have been told by many is the hairstyle that suits me best, was somehow – for a long time – the hairstyle I most tried to avoid… […]

A loose fitted white Tee underneath a black oversized blazer with shoulder pads, AND she tucked the white Tee into her high waisted jeans. Pretty Woman was a big hit in 1990 and so was Vivian Ward’s wardrobe. The […]

Throwback The ’90s – One Earring Only And The Lennon Sunglasses

The bright side of the ’90s one-earring trend for me was that, every so often; I shared the earrings with my female friends, we split the cost of a pair and each kept a single earring – the whole look at half the price! However, the down side of this was that I ended up […]

Throwback The ’90s – The Oversized Blazer

Just when I get used to wearing the fitted blazer and have donated almost all my ’90s oversized blazers to charity.., these big; slouchy blazers have made a comeback! Unlike the ’80s – think of Joan Collins and Grace Jones’ power-shouldered power suits – the ’90s oversized blazer was more laid back and clean-lined. What […]
