au revoir

It's been three years since I have started blogging, and I absolutely love it. It gives me the freedom and the ability to express myself through words and pictures. Although being nicknamed China Doll and using it as my blog title, I feel like it's time for a new image, and a fresh start.

Thank you to the followers who have been there from the beginning. You have seen me grow through my blog and find my way. Since this is a new chapter of my life, I am ready to move onto the next level.

With this said, I am starting a new blog titled Style Borough. I hope you continue to read my posts, and I would love to hear your feedback!

It's been a pleasure.

Vogue x Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker returns to Vogue for the August issue. Except she's not alone. She is now featured with her husband and children as well. Although her facial expression is pretty similar in the pictures, if I ever became a mother, I would want to be as fabulous as this, clothed in Oscar de la Renta, Proenza Schouler, and Chanel! I love how Mario Testino captures her in the mess, SJP definitely stands out in the clutter. ♥

you can't fake fashion

Let's be real, the fashion industry has faced huge problems when it comes to counterfeiting. The CFDA has so elegantly collaborated with eBay to create a collection of canvas tote bags stating "you can't fake fashion". They sold out within minutes! These totes were created by CFDA designers. The only one which is left is the original CFDA plain one seen above, but you MUST check out the various designs and styles by the CFDA designers to see what you missed! ♥

trend watch: clogs

I remember having clogs as a young girl. Today, my love for clogs have grown once again and I bought a pair which I thought I would love but ended up returning them because I ended up not liking them at all!

With the season continuing, clogs have been reinvented, and I definitely think that the Sweds make it best. Not only that they have so much style. Paired with a cute pair of ankle high socks they are definitely a good basic summer slip on. A little bit of height never hurt anyone either. Man repeller? Maybe so, but I love the little Swedish clogs. Check these ones out!

1) Clarks Cheddar Gorge $53
2) Swedish Hasbeens $222
3) Svens $195

Elie Saab Fall 2011 Couture Collection

Wow! Were my first words that came out of my mouth when I saw this gorgeous collection. If you didn't know by now, I am so into white for this season. The D&G Spring/Summer 2011 was filled with white gowns and now Elie Saab is releasing the Fall 2011 Couture Collection perfect for the red carpet or any event you need to stand out at. I love the transition from light to dark on the runway, and how you can tell it's a cohesive collection. I would love to wear one of those dresses, but to where? Above are my few favourite gowns which the collection offered. Check out the rest of the collection on Fashionologie. ♥

Paper Crown

Last summer, Lauren Conrad announced that she wanted to create a contemporary clothing line with her friends. It is called Paper Crown, and she has released a sneak peek on Facebook! These are the pieces and outfits I love, but I definitely have to say, I can see Lauren wearing all of these pieces.

What I love are the simple lines and the basic colours. The collection does not get too crazy with print or pleats, but rather stays to the simplicity of basics. Something that is a staple in everyone's closet. Check out the rest of the look book on InStyle.♥
