A date with Dior

A few weeks ago, I experienced a magical afternoon filled with luxurious threads, champagne and strawberries, beautiful shoes, and a whole load of fashion talk.

Remember the teaser post sometime ago? This is what it was all about...






I was so ecstatic when I received the invitation for a tête-à-tête at Dior as well as a private viewing of the trunk show pieces-- Dior's collection is one of my favorites for this season!

Definitely the coolest thing I've got to experienced from blogging. :)







The showcase was everything I could have asked for, and more. Besides green which I am obsessed over this season, I am also crazy over pink-- all shades of it. And the Dior collection was mainly focused on palettes of fuchsia, pinks, purple... Girlie candy colors that make my heart sing!










Whilst I usually have a soft spot for 'fierce' shoes, I was drawn to this pair of simple, elegant peep-toes. The color makes it so easy to match with everything! With the bright colors that dominate this season, a pair of neutral-colored shoe would be wise.

















I had the most amazing conversation with Marc, who made all of this happen for me! Cheeky conversations about how life was like when we studied in Australia, him sharing his stories about London Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week (I.am.so.jealous), quirky tales of his escapades with all the big names in the fashion industry, and about the book that he is writing (the title is so witty you guys will love it!)...

And Marc, with all his experience, told me that he could see me in New York or Paris, I literally died of happiness! This really means a lot to me, especially when I hope to pursue a career in fashion in the future.











I was really fascinated with some of the history behind Dior that Marc shared with me, the brand's philosophy, the background behind some of the most iconic Dior products etc. I really hope to be able to delve deeper into the stories behind the brand, and share them with you guys in the future! :)

















Teeny wanted to bring this bag home. The shade is so utterly delicious that I could eat it, I swear.













Hope you guys enjoy this little video that we made!

Hey Hui Wen, wanna ask where did you import the dress from? Is it from an online website? Looks gorgeous!

anonymous: I used to use a dior wallet, but I've changed wallets twice since then! Why? Do you have any specific Dior products which you would like to recommend? :)


xiaochen: I got it when I was traveling, love! It's super gorgeous, isn't it! <3

But yeah, dior always makes me think of elegance and femininity.

I love this post! :) and the video too (perfect Vanessa Paradis song)

I hope you get to go to more of this event and share it here with us.

The lady dior bag in that shade of pink is to die for please... sigh*

Anyways why did you put your Miu Miu so close to the wall? Aren't you scared that you know people or rather druggies might have peed there or do some nasty things there? :/
