VERA WANG (New York) Polka Dor Print Silk Top

Prints have been playing a role in NYC designer Vera Wang’s recent collections. Featuring macro polka dots done with a painter’s flair, this resort silk top is the picture of playful elegance. Offset the soft pattern with a sharp blazer and crisp slim pants, or team it with shorts/jeans and leather wedges for a charming dock-party look.

Happy Dumpling Festival

It's the day of the dumpling! May you enjoy dumplings in all sizes, shapes and flavours. :-)

THEORY (New York) Ruched Dress

Who says style has to be fussy? Certainly not Olivier Theyskens, the Belgian-born design star behind New York label Theory. Boasting gloriously soft fabric and a flattering cut, this slightly asymmetric dress is so versatile yet classic, we can definitely picture wearing it under a cardigan to work, to lunch at an outdoor café, to cocktails poolside, to a dinner date, and so many places in between.
Comes with handy slash pockets, too.
For drama, try adding drop earrings and jewel-tone pumps.
(RRP US$315)

DOLCE VITA (USA) Python-Print Thong Sandals

If you are still padding around in a pair of rubber flip-flops, even when wearing, say, a DVF maxi dress, may we respectfully suggest you trade up to these chic thong sandals from Dolce Vita?
Anchored by a sassy python-print ornament, this Summery footwear was apparently inspired by a piece of found jewellery.
The slender sole makes for a light step, while the slight heel gives you just a slight lift where you need it.
Let these bare-there flats peek out from under cropped pants in the city, or wear with denim shorts on weekend afternoons to add a fashion-forward edge.
(RRP US$139)

Dolce Vita's combination of urban, bohemian and high-fashion style resonated with shoe lovers from the very beginning. Today the shoes can be found on the feet of thousands of women. The label's RTW line (think lace dresses, polka dot rompers), now available in their brand new NoLIta, SoHo boutique, is also garnering a loyal following thanks to its effortlessly cool, contemporary appeal. Bright and airy, the boutique is supposedly set up like a 'dream closet' - with hardwood floors, wheeled wooden clothing racks, and old-fashioned shoe shelves.

APEPAZZA (Italy) Nappa Wedge Heels

How do we make a great first impression? Of course, the warmth of personality will not fail you.
Nonetheless, some folks do tend to look at what you wear -especially on your feet- and decide in themselves what you are.
The quality construction of this wedge heel from Apepazza is sure to grab attention.
Super-soft nappa leather upper wraps your foot for total flattery, while a sculpted and stacked wedge heel adds leg-lengthening yet stable height. You’ll appreciate the open-toe for comfort and flirt, and that easy heel-cup zip for convenience.
Match this sensual beauty with a body-con bandage dress for a devastating dose of glamour, or simply don it with comfortable capris or denims.
(RRP US$179)

Apepazza is a brand with roots in Padua (Padova), a city outside of Venice, Italy. In 1982, Adriana Baganti started the line after working her entire life in her parents’ footwear business. Baganti literally has shoes in her blood – she was born in a shoe store! Following its American debut in 2005, Apepazza has been making smooth strides in the high-end market in the U.S..
Sophisticated, eclectic and original, Apepazza is designed for ladies with a keen sense of individual style. Never a follower, the Apepazza woman is master and creator of her own image.
