Hey Sasha, I'm pretty much a stereotypical Chinese person with a close group of stereotypical Chinese friends.  However, one stereotype that I very much want to stay away from is the cheapness when it comes to tipping at restaurants. I have a couple of friends who insist that the appropriate amount to tip a server is 10% before tax. Full Article

I have a Belstaff. It’s probably my favourite coat of all time. And I’ve kicked the sh-t out of it. A Belstaff coat is made to last. We have six months now to think about a leather half-sleeve which seems to be everywhere. Are you down?     Full Article

I’ve already decided I’m definitely buying this leaf print dress. And I’m wearing it with penny loafers. Check me in October. Also really into the striped standar(ish) dress shirt with a clashing print skirt underneath. Office-wear made exciting!  Full Article

Hi Hayley! I urgently need your help. I am heading to visit my family Argentina and I desperately need to get in bikini weather. I'm 29 years old, 5'6" and 135 lbs. So here's the catch, I do not want to lose weight while I tone up (I lose my shape and start to look like Marc Anthony). Full Article

It’s green velvet right? Lush. Beautiful colour. But two problems: the strap across the neck there looks like she’s wearing a neck brace. You know when someone’s been in an accident and they have that contraption over their heads to keep everything stable? Also... f-ck... those shoes. Full Article

My frustration with DVF is that the buyers – at  least in Canada – only bring in the wrap dresses. This collection is obviously so much more than just wrap dresses. Look at the first photo attached. I love the bright pop of pink – is it a wing – across the body. And the gold short sleeve sequin detail. Full Article

Sasha Answers: When Will He Say I Love You?

Sasha Posted by Sasha at February 11, 2013 19:17:17 February 11, 2013 19:17:17

Hi Sasha, My boyfriend & I are gearing up to celebrate our 1st anniversary soon, but we've yet to say I love you to each other. I don't want to be the one to say it first (please don't make me;), but I'm beginning to wonder if he'll ever say it. He's an affectionate, caring person, and has made several references to growing old together, but for whatever reason he can't seem to utter those 3 little words. Full Article
