Hej from Stockholm September 2, 2011

Filed under: Design related — vivaliving @ 8:18 am

Hej from Stockholm,

Hej in Swedish means hello. Yes, I am in Stockholm again. As I mentioned in my previous blog entries, I am so in love with Scandinavian designs. I will for sure bring home some of my favorites on my wishlist.

If you are 1) a fan of Scandinavian designs (not just Swedish designs), 2) want to get some Scandinavia designs for home decoration/for your wardrobe & 3) live in the bay area, please leave me a note. I would love to connect with you.

Desigual-a fashion brand that becomes my new like August 8, 2011

Filed under: Fashion — vivaliving @ 9:06 am

Desigual is a Spanish wear brand founded in 1984. I got to know this brand by shopping in San Francisco downtown area. Several reasons that I love this brand: 1. The styles are awesome, 2. The designers are brave enough to use lots of bright colors on the clothes, 3. The patterns are great. I love the asian-infused patterns that they use, such as dragon, 4. The sizes are well tailored. The smallest size that they have can fit a petite lady like me. Yeah!

Check out some of the nice Desigual design!
