CHINA BLOGGER FEATURE

We have just started a new feature on our blog, where we will be interviewing bloggers from all around the world.

A different month will bring you a different country.

We are so excited about launching this,  for it incorporates both our love of fashion & travel and what better way to see the world (through a screen) than from a bloggers point of view.

For our first month, April we have decided to focus on China as it the start of their Shanghai Fashion Festival, located on the central coast, Shanghai is China’s biggest city and global financial hub – definitely just got added to our bucket lists.

We are proud to introduce China Fashion Bloggers who have been kind enough to give us a little insight in to their fashion world! They have recently added a new Designer Feature showcasing Runway Photos and a Bloggers‘ page which shows all the contributing bloggers that make CFB possible!

See the interview below

Describe the blogging community in China?

Blogging in China is still relatively new. A lot of people call themselves bloggers as a sort of “catch all” phrase for KOLs, influencers, or celebrities that don’t have a specific profession like acting or singing… this has diluted the term, and the idea of a blogger is even further diluted by platforms like Weibo. Weibo is a microblogging service, so many people see themselves as bloggers, which is both good and bad.

Anyway can blog in China, and a lot of more independent and forward-thinking individuals have already jumped on board… but the number of high-quality bloggers in China right now are few and far between. CFB strives to identify the best blogging talent and put them all in one place, to foster a community of like-minded individuals with different perspectives. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t understand bloggers or think it is a nasty word for people with questionable working status and morals, but bloggers have a lot to offer not only the fashion community in China but society at large.

Unfortunately a lot of blogging platforms need a VPN to access in China, so there may be a couple of very famous bloggers but the community as a whole is still in its very early stages

How would you describe China Fashion Bloggers and your style?

CFB is the perfect bridge between designers, retailers, and consumers in China. We offer a lot of different perspectives and styles. The style of the site is clean and minimal, as we choose to put the spotlight on our bloggers’ content as opposed to the design of the site itself.

In terms of my personal style, I like things that are obscure, ethnic, and different. It’s a reflection of me as a mud-blood, being both Korean and American. I like mixing ideas and patterns and proportions to create something new.

Best places to shop in China?

MHT, Triple Major, Autumn Sonata, Alter, Dong Liang, Lane Crawford, 10 Corso Como

China’s best kept travel secret?

Street food. Most people are afraid of it, but you should definitely try everything (except for maybe the meat products)… it’s cheap but better than a lot of fancy places in China.

LIFOU

At our first stop, we disembarked into the tranquil and secluded Lifou.

We spent the day exploring the streets of the island, which were lined with palm and frangipani trees and kayaking to the more unexplored turfs by ocean.

We made our way around the island in our vehicle of choice the Kayak, and uncovered a secluded beach.

There’s no feeling quite like it than being on your own little beach and although you are only walking distance back to the hut where they hired out the Kayaks, you felt isolated and the serenity was captivating, it makes you really feel the island and get a taste of what it would be like to be completely dependent on the islands natural resources and detached from the wide web of the world.

But then how we would get all our fashion inspiration.

For a day packed of exploring I wanted to make sure I was practical and what better practicality is there than a cute red one piece (aside from when you need to go to the toilet and of course the tan lines) but all for the sake of fashion.  Teamed with every girl’s island staple – ripped jean shorts and I was set.

If you are still not convinced on cruises – think of the destinations you get to visit that may not be on your radar and maybe my next and final post will sway your judgement.

Until then, stay fashionable

If you were wondering why we were a bit MIA, I was sailing the Pacific Ocean, Island hopping from Vanuatu to New Caledonia and Alexis has been busing working on something special and top secret!

We spent 7 nights on board the P&O Pacifc Dawn and travelled to, two Islands; Lifou & Pt Villa.
When we were just cruising at Sea, we were never at a loss of things to do., with all the entertainment on board, we struggled to fit in time to work on our tans (hence why there isn’t really one).

This has been my fourth Cruise, and I still never get sick of them, they are the ideal holiday for singles, couples, families and solo travellers, there truly is something for everyone on board and the best thing about it is they take you around the world, getting to visit places you may never have thought to travel to.

So here is a snippet of my time on board, wearing one of my favourite Seafolly Bikini’s and Iconic Cover up, teamed with the classic boat hat from Sportsgirl.

Make sure you check back because I still have a few more posts to share with you.

INDIANNA JONES

Not too long ago I went to Zara, well I should say I went on a frenzy at Zara and picked up this little suede dress.
Among other items, i fell in lust, I had to have it.

I couldn’t wait to wear it, there have been so many occasions where I was tempted to but I thought I should save it for the right occasion.

One sunday morning, mum and I decided to grab breakfast out. This was the time.

It was only a double win that I had just got my hair done which we all know that your hairstyle is the finishing touch of every outfit.
I decided to go with the Indianna Jone vibes I was getting with this dress and team it with my tan brogues which kept it simple but fun!

This dress has come in handy in so many ways, when I’m struggling to find an outfit for work, this is a quick go to and I can’t wait to style it for winter.

There’s nothing better than a dual purpose dress.

Thanks Zara! You’ve done it again.

FAUX

12

Lately, I have been having trouble on styling my bob since I haven’t had short hair in a very long time. Especially when it comes to the night life. I always think what can I wear to show off this hair and look somewhat of an adult since my hair makes me look like I’m 12 again when I am not all spiffed up. Then I had the perfect statement piece to make it look like I was wearing the perfect wig. My pink faux fur coat from H&M!

I had purchased this coat from our local H&M a couple of years ago and is still one of my favorite pieces to date. I have only worn this coat about 4 times since that purchase so, you can say it’s a pretty big statement piece.

I was meeting friends for drinks so wanted to keep it casual but, still very glamorous at the same time. I paired it with my favorite pair of Levi high waisted jeans and vintage, ivory crop top. I finished off the look with pink and metallic silver heeled sandals. My hair has been getting me into some really cool, French, chic, glamorous looks and I absolutely love it. It’s always nice to change up your look and get into different styles every now and then. Change is good but remember to always keep a little bit of yourself in it.

MEMORY LANE

We have teamed up with Social Print Studio who are running a competition on showcasing a stylish look book.
We are constantly looking back at our looks to see how we styled our outfits and how much has changed or hasn’t, we also ask ourselves the question, would we wear this again?

For this collaboration we are pulling together some of our all time favourite looks that best represent our style and personalities.

From our go-to outfits and the ones that made us step out of our comfort zone, see what we have to say about our past looks below.

aff

This is one of our favourite looks, one reason because we are both in it and because it was Adelaide Fashion Festival so we wanted our looks to be ‘sleek’. Two of the best accents of these looks is white pants & black strappy heels, you can never go wrong, they are the strong staples of any good outfit and can be worn in anyway, both casually and dressed up, teamed with Alexis’ Chanel inspired skirt which lead as a feature and Georgia’s Red shirt and blazer which transformed the outfit to a dressy suit.  We love any look that can be worn in multiple styles!

chanel

From french vibes to edgy – this is why we love fashion, keeping the same bold lip but transforming its’ style from two completely different looks, sums up our blog in a nutshell.  Fashion gives us the freedom to choose who we want to be and that can change depending on how we feel and who we are inspired by. edgy jacket

From a feature jacket to skirt, these are two things every girl needs in their wardrobe! When you are not sure what to wear a feature piece of clothing is an instant outfit, teamed with a simple top or pants, it can take your outfit from something basic to something standout!
maxi

And then there’s the ‘something you would never buy dress’, it’s always fun experimenting with fashion and trying something you normally wouldn’t like this girly southern dress because it may just suprise you and like the saying goes, you never know until you try!

And of course the classic red dress, need we say more, it doesn’t require much more effort, it speaks for itself and it speaks loudly and can be worn on almost any occasion, from work events to weddings, a fun red dress is a must have staple, like the little black dress, a little red dress in whatever style you desire looks great on everyone!

We hope you’ve enjoyed our walk down fashion lane, to see all our previous looks, go to our look-book page and to see what more Social Print Studio have to offer, head to their site to turn your favourite snaps in to long lasting memories with their great photo books
