Pack These Summer Vacation Essentials

Whether you have plans to island-hopping in the Med, heading up to the cottage, or going on a summer vacation of your own, you’ll need a few essentials to take you from swim to cocktail hour. From vintage cut-off denim shorts to a scalloped hem bikini, from a chic beach towel to cute cactus slip ons,…


Silk Pyjama Pantsuit

I have always admired matching separates (from afar). A pantsuit is a necessary component to any professional working woman’s wardrobe, yet many can feel too stuffy, or hard to wear without the full ensemble. In passively searching for the perfect matching pantsuit, I wanted the complete set to look modern, and more casual than the…


Silk Slip in Shoreditch

I instantly fell in love with this pink silk slip the moment I saw it. The only problem was it was in the nightgown section. And I had no intention of wearing it to sleep, but all the inclination to wear it out on the street. The solution? A plain white tshirt dress underneath, and done!…


Bell Sleeves in the Slovenian Alps

< Many people speak of belonging next to the sea. While I certainly can attest to that, I feel myself equally as drawn to the mountains. Something about being immersed among nature’s biggest beasts, mountains are simply majestic (you can read about the first time I saw them here). When we discovered Slovenia was known not…


Chambray in Cyprus

Cyprus had been on my bucket list for quite some time now (here and here). Reason being, my best friend Stella, back in Canada, is Cypriot, and I grew up across the street from her and her family, which became a second home to me. Think ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ and that was pretty…


Summer Vacay Style

Summer is in full swing! It’s all about breezy dresses, light fabrics, cool accessories, and being beach ready at all times. With a couple getaways planned in the upcoming weeks, we put together our favourite summer vacay picks. From the perfect beach cover-up to the stylish sunhat, the only sunscreen you’ll ever need to the ideal walking…


The Pink Fashion Show

Malta’s Pink Magazine bi-annual Fashion Show was recently held at the stunning venue of Villa Rosa. Featuring well-known designers and brands and their ready-to-wear collections, the summer 2016 edition of the show was the perfect mix of fashion meets summer soiree. Produced by Pink Magazine’s editor-in-chief Fiona Galea Debono, and styled by Marisa Grima, the audience was treated to…


Malta Fashion Week: Part II

Now that Malta Fashion Week has come and gone, we can all take a breather to properly reflect back on the experience. This year’s MFWA (Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Malta / Chamilia Malta Fashion Awards) was truly spectacular (you can see PART 1 here). With a long list of talented designers, both local and foreign, the week…


Malta Fashion Week 2016: Part 1

Mercedes-Benz Malta Fashion Week 2016, sponsored by Valletta 2018 is, off to a fantastic start this year. We’ve already seen the New Designers show, held in Valletta, as well as the Point Fashion Show at the stunning main venue, Fort St. Angelo in Vittoriosa.  We took a Maltese Daisa (traditionally a fishing boat) across the…


Moroccan Sequins

When packing for an upcoming trip, I always keep the nature of the place in mind with each piece I choose. Whether consciously or not, my travel style is heavily influenced by its destination. Like wearing Spanish-dancing inspired ruffles and bright red fedoras in Madrid, or blending in with the architecture of Siena. I always try…
