WOW were the Spring 2017 shows a doozy! Fashion will always be a little part of me, and I couldn't help but get a little inspiration pairing them back to some of my favorite flower arrangements. Which were your favorite shows this season?
Maisie Williams showed up at the Emmys on Sunday wearing a custom Markus Lupfer. I love her and her style. She always looks so refreshing and daring, taking risks that are beyond the typical showing-a-lot-of-skin that most young celebrities have taken to. Anyway, this beautiful number with embroidered flowers was my inspiration for this week's bouquet. I don't think I've ever used such random and bold colors in one arrangement before but I think I may need to start doing more often. What do you think?
Afternoon Tea at the Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong should be on everyones bucket list! Being the Yankee American that I am, I never quite understood the idea of "high tea" or "afternoon tea." Heck, I don't really even like tea. I'm loyal to coffee. But this is a one not to miss.
The Ritz has their signature tea at 2 locations: Cafe 103, The Ritz's more modern restaurant on the 103rd floor from 3:30pm-5:30pm, or at The Lounge & Bar on the 102nd floor from 2:15pm-4:15pm or 4:30pm-6:30pm. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation online and request a seat by the window to get the full view.
Perfect way to spend your Sunday afternoon.
In case you've been blind for most of 2016, embroidery is everywhere and in so many forms. From designers, to street style to Zara, it doesn't look like it's going away. I was on a mission to re-create this look. The first place I headed was Sham Shui Po (check out Sassy HK's guide to this area) and came across Nan Fong Embroidery. This place is embroidery heaven!
If you're looking to make your own DIY embroidery and live in Hong Kong, go check out this store. You will not be disappointed!

#TBT time to November of 2012, New York City. Venue: Public. Event: My wedding, the day that inspired it all. I DIY'ed these flowers and still, almost 4 years later, and I'm so happy I decided to take the plunge. Oh, and I'm happy about the marriage too! All photos by the incredibly talented JennyJ.
