Dressing up a white tank
If there is one thing women can’t live without, I would say it’s the white tank top (funnily enough, we also can’t live without a ridiculously large selection of shoes, bags and jewelry, but I’ll save that for another post). Above: Xuan wears a white tank top with a pair of Levi’s high waist cotton pants and a pair of vintage heels from Paris. And of course a...

For Xuan, getting dressed in the morning must be like being in a candy store and picking your favourite flavours (of wholesome, healthy goodness). She has so many amazing colours, fits and prints! Here she wears floral print pants and fluo top by Supreme, Australia, matched with a bolero from Design by Roygi. Sandals from Mykonos.
That perfect summer MAXI dress
I am a HUGE fan of maxi dresses - they’re perfect for the hot summers: elegant, feminine, airy and you don’t need to worry about any skin touching public surfaces when sitting down in the metro. Love it. In this shot Kylie wears a gorgeous black and white bold print maxi dress from MaxMara (I think - Please correct me if I am wrong).

A letter from Levi's
It’s not a love letter. It’s not a nice picture of an old vintage Levi’s advert. It’s not a discount coupon. It’s a typed letter with a bit of history on the 501 jean. Don’t stop reading. For those of you who may think it’s a marketing scam, well, you may be half right. It’s marketing for sure, but it’s no scam. It’s amazing....
Super thin… With a lovely weave… A thick strap for a minimalist look. These last ones are from Zara. On a mega sale… Now.
