THE ULTIMATE...FIRST DATE OUTFIT



Vogue.com says this is the perfect outfit for a first date. Do you agree?

I actually like this look for everyday. It's easy--you can dress it up or dress it down--which means you won't have to rush home after work before catching drinks with the girls. This outfit is the perfect base, wherever I end up. I know what I'm wearing tomorrow...

CHLOE EAU DE PARFUM



I was talking to my girlfriend about fragrances earlier and of course, we're both fans of floral notes. I'm always intrigued by what people chose as their signature scent. What does it say about a person? CHLOE is my ultimate favourite - it makes me forget about all the others. I never used deodorant as a kid. My parents always swiped a cotton ball of floral, citrus-like parfum under my arms. I haven't continued with it (there's little that can mask the smell of chlorine in my sport days), but it's a damn good reason why I've always gravitated to these tones. 

What's your signature fragrance?

HOW I WEAR MY: ZANEROBE DENIM SLINGSHOT

I finally found a pair of baggy/boyfriend jeans that fit! These are literally your boyfriend's jeans. ZANEROBE is an Australian menswear label, but their pants are equally as loved by girls.

HOW I WEAR MY: ACACIA SWIMWEAR BIKINI

HOW I WEAR MY: ACACIA SWIMWEAR BIKINI


I think in a past life, I was born on the beach. I grew up swimming (and quite fearlessly, I think). As the story goes, I was thrown into the pool at 3 months old. I progressed through the levels to become a lifeguard and at my prime, ranked top in my age group in the 50, 100 and 200 metre breaststroke. The bikini is now my favourite outfit. I could spend endless hours...

CLARINS TONIC BODY POLISHER


I grew up on Clarins products. Of course, I didn't know it at the time, but I would forever attribute that sunny logo with the best of summer skincare. Vietnam was once a colony of France and my parents knew both the language and their must-have products. The TONIC BODY POLISHER is oil-based and despite its moisturizing benefits, it doesn't leave a film. You only need a little bit to make the entire room smell like a spa. My skin is smooth to the touch and I'm ready to take on the day!
