Cheongsam and Other Old Faves

Cheogsam top and statement earrings.

I’ve been doing a closet edit and have refrained (for the most part) from shopping. Digging deep into my wardrobe I’ve uncovered this now vintage cheongsam  (this style always evokes the glamour of 1930s0s Shaghai for me) top by Lee Young Hee from my first trip to Paris many years ago.

This outfit is made up of many old favorites, pieces that I will never part with, that leave no doubt in feeling and looking good.
Here, I’ve reimagined the elegant and feminine cheongsam by layering it over a vintage 90s maxi dress in a rich olive color. To dress down the luxe fabrics of both, I chose strappy flats and a crossover bucket bag (I find the small logo design very appealing) by Celine. The quilted silk jacket with a mandarin collar is YSL, is another old friend.

To compliment the luxe fabrics of this look I went with Lucite shoulder duster earrings inset with rhinestones (if you love them, email me at, the bracelets in sandblasted Lucite are stunners embellished with crystals.
