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.

Havana Themed Spring Soiree @ The Watershed Hotel Darling Harbour

It was a day; a night of spring chill. So I decided to go for the old Hollywood glamour, faux fur (that’s right) on top of my blue velvet – “velvet is so in right now” – ankle length gown to attend a Spring Soiree with my partner in crime, Street Fashion Sydney’s Kent Johnson. […]

My OOTD Now – The Sheer Pink Satin Coat

Joining me for the trip were eight other travel journalists; each representing one of Taiwan major newspapers or travel magazines. Our destination was Huis Ten Bosch, as this […]

My Biker Jacket Diary – High Contrast

In 1928, the first motorcycle jacket with a zipper was born in New York City; it was named Perfecto, after creator Irving Schott’s favourite cigar. The watershed moment came in 1953, when Marlon Brando’s Johnny Strabler wore the infamous skull-and-bones-stamped Perfecto in the film ‘The Wild One’. Brando; Perfecto and the film all went on […]
