Geometric Prints and Basics

IMG_1431

My today’s blog post is an inspiration from the architectures, street fashion and an amazing character this beautiful city of Hong Kong has.It has the best skyline I have ever seen so far in my life and the view at night is just breath taking. Fashion is in the air in Hong Kong and for a fashionista like me I was feeling like a kid in the candy store 🙂 . Amazing display of latest fashion just caught my eye everywhere. There was not even one store I passed by where I didn’t like a single piece of fashion. Everything was just so inspiring and unique in its own way that I felt like packing Honk Kong in my suitcase and taking with me 🙂 . Its truly one of the most fashionable city in the world and reminded me of New York a lot.

So this geometric print crop top and skorts where just the perfect pair to rock the Hong Kong fashion and explore the city feeling like a Diva! To complete the look I paired it with gold accent sandals from Guess, tote bag from Kate Spade and my sunnies from h&m 🙂

The Trend is Back: Jumpsuits!

IMG_1334

They say old is gold and its true. The 70s fashion are back and Jumpsuits took over the runway in New York, London and Milan fashion week. The best part that i like about Jumpsuits are that the bottom half hits you at a high waste giving you a very framed look and an illusion of slim waste and long legs 🙂 . This evergreen fashion was even rocked in this years Golden Globe awards (Emma Stone.. did that ring some bells? 🙂 ) . There are many ways you can wear it, from casual-chic to sportive-cool look. I decided to go casual-chic with this fabfound from Marshalls by pairing it up with this gorgeous black and gold accent faux leather belt, midi-rings and statement necklace all from Forever21 🙂 , my link bracelet is from Stella & Dot and this bangle watch is from Armani Exchange . Since I kept the theme of the jewelry black and gold, so I continued the same with my black and gold metal bag from Aldo and this super comfy and amazing gladiator heels from Call it Spring

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Friendly people, mouth-watering cuisine, the world famous Angkor Wat, vibrant culture and legendary nightlife… and my list goes on!! I was amazed every moment on my impromptu 3-day trip to Siem Reap.

What to see in 3 days?

  • Day 1: A must see!! Angkor wat alone takes an entire day. I would suggest seeing the mesmerizing sunsrise at Angkor Wat and then continuing the trip inside the temple once the sun is up. You would require a tour guide if you are really keen on knowing the history of the place. They charge you around $14 for the entire day. By the end of the day you’ll be tired and would like to relax and have a good meal. So I would suggest restaurants near Pub Street for a good meal and some nightcap. And for the dare devils you can try the bugs, snakes that street hawkers sell 🙂

  • Day 2: spend the next day seeing the other main ancient ruins Ta Prohm, Bayon temple (my fav) , Banteay Srei. You can end your day by seeing the sunset at the sunset point and then grab some dinner and do some local shopping at night market (good place to buy souvenirs) before you hit the bed.

  • Day 3: you can have relaxed picnic day by the Lake or just roam around the city before you leave for your next destination!

Good to know

  • The best and effective way to get around is by tuk tuk. You can rent it for an entire day for around $20 max. You can also rent a bike for cheap but its very tiring and will be time consuming to go one place to other.
  • When visiting temples and ancient ruins dress conservatively. No bare shoulders and no knees exposed. And that goes for both men and women.
  • Everywhere USD is accepted. Even if you don’t have the local currency its not an issue. Everyone accepts USD, from restaurants and shops to tuk tuk drivers.
  • Bargain! Don’t pay the price that they ask for. When shopping at night market or taking a tuk tuk, make sure you bargain.
