One of the key events for our trip to Taiwan was to attend a friend's engagement banquet; it's special to John and I coz we were the matchmakers to the love birds. The girl I met in Oxford when I was about 13 and the boy was a uni friend of John's.
It is a typical Taiwanese tradition for engagement banquets to be held during lunch hours; today will conclude with a after party/ casual friend's gathering in one of the hotel suites.
I try to travel light whenever I can, so brought back my Barneys NY blue lacey dress for the banquet, paired with my already-at-home-in-Taiwan Kurt Geiger patent heels; was thinking of bringing back a clutch to go with the outfit but gave up the idea last minute, thought this small Chanel will suffice.
I really love this dress, thought it's appropriate for different events, it had to be taken up slightly, fitted nicely i thought!
I have zero idea of the name for this Chanel bag, I love how it has a zipper pocket on the back, makes accessing things like mobile phones easier! The chain is adjustable for 2 different length.

My recent obsession with nails is painting them different colours, I mixed and matched fuchsia and black today!
Taiwan is so incredibly hot, sticky-humid-hot! Everyone went home and changed into more casual and summer friendly clothes for the post banquet gathering in the evening. I immediately changed into shorts, sleeveless top, hair up, and flats.
Top is by one of my all time favourites Theory and shorts by one of my favourite Thai brand Flynow.
I quickly removed heels and replaced it with always-so-comfy Chanel ballerinas.
