The one aspect I love the most about fashion is the endless array of shoppes to choose from. Nothing gets me more excited than a new boutique filled with posh pieces and unique styles. It is like hearing a new song for the first time and the entire experience is pure harmony. Granted, not every new place you walk into will be a match made in heaven but there is always potential in the unknown and any skilled shopper knows that finding the best pieces all rests in the patience of the hunt. For most people, shopping is a sport that requires dedication to achieving the best deals as well as the ability to scour the store for hidden gems. When the day is done, nothing is more rewarding than unloading your treasures and reviewing your purchases as you begin to outline outfits from your current closet.
My goal is to introduce you to international boutiques that are worth buying from so you can achieve the perfect look. My first dedication goes to Hong Kong’s Shanghai Tang. The brand was founded in 1994 by David Tang and his main goal was to rejuvenate Chinese fashion from the 1920’s and 1930’s. A true taste of the orient, the patterns are crisp and decadent. The dragon motif is a personal favorite of mine and I am beyond excited to experience their flagship this summer on my very own trip to Hong Kong. For us Americans, however, we have to settle with the online store which is simple and easy to navigate.
I urge you all to check out the website and let us know what you think! Check out some of my favorite pieces below and, as always, leave us your thoughts.
In their latest lookbook, Shanghai Tang fuses power and femininity into a chic ensemble suitable for day and night. We think this Studded Miu Miu Wristlet would add an extra punch to this powerful outfit.
Jewel tones like Jade help make a stunning statement. Keeping up with precious stones and metals, why not pair it with our Gucci Gold Bag?
