Dsquared2 Aviators from Sunglasses-Shop



Aside from my expensive obsession for luxurious designer shoes and anything shiny, sunglasses to me are my favourite staple accessory regardless of whatever season it may be. Sunglasses are more than just a fashion statement, they are great protectants from the sun's harmful rays and also to be quite frank, they are your only saviours when no amount of make-up concealer lathered on could hide those shameful dark bags under your eyes from a debaucherous evening the night before. Darling...trust me, I know because I probably own more sunglasses than they are of sunny days in a year in Vancouver.

The latest addition to my constantly growing collection of shades are these ultra sleek Dsquared2 black aviators. With a classic look with a modern edge, these aviators have easily become my favourite pair for this season.

Many thank yous to the fabulous Sunglasses Shop who have made my shopping for shades incredibly delightful and smooth. Sunglasses Shop carries a vast collection of designer sunglasses for men and women. From popular brand names like Alexander McQueen and Tom Ford to classic labels like Chanel and Dior, Sunglasses Shop has many of your favourite brands and styles of shades you will covet and love. So check out Sunglasses Shop online today for all of your fancy eyewear needs!

The Man on Top

A British favourite of mine, Topshop Topman opened its doors in Vancouver just last week and already I have been racking up my credit card bill with great new pieces for fall and a handful of, "I don't need it, but I WANT it" splurge type of items. The store is located right in the heart of Downtown Vancouver in the beautiful and newly renovated The Bay and is hailed as the largest international Topshop Topman outside of the chain's flagship location on Oxford Circus in London.

Of course with such a large opening of a fashion juggernaut, must follow a fabulous and opulent launch party. If you all followed me on Twitter, which YOU ALL SHOULD, you would have caught my gallivanting on camera like here, here, HERE...oh and HERE TOO at this fantastic celebration.

I danced, smized for the camera and clearly had one too many glasses of champagne but the biggest highlight of my evening was having the opportunity to chat with Gordon Richardson, who is the Creative Director of Topman UK who flew in from London, at an exclusive dinner party for 50 that I felt beyond privileged to have been invited to.

So...and the best part of the conversation? He told me he liked how I styled my outfit. It was this Topman leather biker jacket with a crisp white dress shirt tucked into slim black cigarette pants and YSL laceless loafers—Dressy yet with a modern edge. I was utterly flattered and grinned like a buffoon the rest of the evening and still till this day, I blush when I think about it.

I think I can officially die happy. . .well wait. Not until I get to attend Paris Fashion Week of course! But until then, you can find me shopping at Topshop Topman in Vancouver.




On another note, please excuse my failed attempt at 'smizing' in the photos above of this blog post. I'm Asian, we just naturally have squinty eyes, so why bother when trying to smize. #Justsayin.

—Bob Marley



It's rained a lot recently for the first time in a long time and to be quite honest, I've taken quite the comfort of the refreshing damp weather despite how gloomy it may look—I like it and it puts me at ease….And also, it allows me to put these Gucci rubber rain boots that I forgot I even owned to good use.

Today is the day of giving thanks.

I am grateful for my wonderful friends, supportive family, decent health, being born a lot taller than the average Asian, having luscious full lips, my ability to recover from a hangover fast, Tom Ford, having perfect and healthy nail beds, oh and of course for possessing such a 'winning personality' and being able to speak sarcasm so fluently with such a straight face, it's beyond scary.

Also and lastly, without any sarcasm and I swear it on my Chanel bag, I am thankful for YOU. The person reading this blog entry or any of my blog entries who has been following this blog for a while now or for that person seeing The Starving Stylist for the very first time. Thank you to all those who have emailed me, commented on my blog posts or are following me on Twitter, Facebook and BlogLovin'. All the admiration and words of support from all of you have always put a smile to my face and I am grateful for all of you. Thank you.



Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians. xx

What I'd Wear Today: Leather, leopard and a dash of Mickey

Neil Barrett printed Mickey Mouse t-shirt; Balenciaga panelled slim-fit biker jacket; Givenchy stainless steel band chrono watch; Dominic Jones Cross Bracelet; Dior Homme Leather and metal detail cuff; Yves Saint Laurent Malibu-Leopard print pony sneakers; Lanvin aviator acetate sunglasses; Ann Demeulemeester black skinny jean.



Fall is upon us and as the nights get darker, so does my wardrobe.

Black skinny jeans and a well fitted black leather jacket become my staple go to pieces that could do no wrong, no matter what I am pairing them up with. In this case, I've complimented my black essentials with a fun Mickey graphic tee (I have the biggest soft spot of Mickey FYI) and a splash of animal print for some added boldness. And of course, nothing is complete without some accessorizing—a leather cuff, some metals, a watch and of course a pair of shades that say, "I'm busy. Talk to someone else that cares." 

 That's what I've would have worn today. How about you?
