How to get around in Paris (and how not to)

How to get around in Paris (and how not to) In this editorial: ‘Bank’ Bag by X Nihilo; Silk V Neck Top by Conflict of Ego; Step Hem Jeans by Grlfrnd Denim; Velvet Pumps by Dolce & Gabanna (similar) According to the Theory of Relativity, the faster one travels through space, the faster one travels in time.Go figure. But when it comes to how to get around in Paris and its cockleshell-shaped arrondisments, speed is not the question here. Rather, it is how best to travel without missing a thing. For, in Paris, those tucked away restaurants only the locals know, backstreet vintage shops that don’t find their way into city guides, and the most photogenic views, are not marked by colour-coded signposts. 1 On Foot Where the sights, sounds and sensations of each street and corner seduces you away from the Google Maps route, 30 minutes on foot in Paris is 5 minutes in London or New York. Indeed, the most beautiful things to experience are the smallest and simplest that the senses need to take time to savour: the scent of fresh baguettes permeating every street, the uniqueness of each ancient cobble stone, and the changing light, streaming […]

More than a footrest, NC’s Circus Pouf

Our living room has always been a work in progress. It’s on the smaller side yet it’s one of the rooms we use the most. Ultimately though it needs to be low maintenance and comfortable for all family members. I’m still in the process of achieving the r…

a velvet moment

We recently celebrated Fashion Mews’ second year anniversary. While we’re still a baby, I can’t help but feel more comfortable about who we are as a blog and company. My personal style feels the same about this too, which means taking more risks, and following my gut more. If you haven’t noticed already, velvet (along with fishnet) is having a major moment right now. And I’m all for that. I love flirting with warmer tones too, like blush and now burgundy. A pop of color is all you need in this super grey NYC winter, just in time for Chinese New Year #MrsLin. 🙂 Thank you for reading! xx Photography by Evgeniy Sorbo i’m wearing The Beatles shirt (similar here and here) Velvet coat Denim shorts Celine sneakers (similar here) Tights Chanel bag Let’s connect on Snapchat and Bloglovin.

5 Ways to Instantly Refresh Your Wardrobe

5 ways to instantly refresh your wardrobe for Spring Wearing: Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Pumps from YOOX The timeless optimism that comes with springtime – the cool sunrise light slivers on the floor, flower clouds billowing across once bleak landscapes, and lively birds, perhaps landing on your hand in Disney princess style – isn’t lost even on us southern hemisphere dwellers. When that time comes around, a well-documented phenomenon occurs among women (and stylish men) all over the world. Like the migration instincts of south-flying swans, an urge takes over to dismiss the fashions and style notions of the year before, and look to a new and improved sartorial identity. When last year’s wardrobe suddenly feels monotonous, and those impulse purchases in pursuit of a trend turn into unsightly faux pas to be swept to the deepest, darkest corners of the closet, you needn’t start from square one. Here are 5 ways to instantly refresh your wardrobe for spring. 1 Introduce a new statement accessory Sometimes all you need is one amazing new accessory to give new life to a tired wardrobe. Choose something unique, and completely different from what you already have or have ever considered wearing – because spring […]

Comfort and luxury for day and night

Comfort and luxury for day and night Wearing: CLUSE Minuit Watch in Rose Gold case and Red Velvet strap Every Sophia Cappola movie I’ve seen – in my vein attempt at a quarter-life cultural education – has left me mildly bewildered in a want for closure (you too?). Even so, the image of Kirsten Dunst as a porcelain-skinned, waif-like Marie Antoinette as she lounged luxuriously in a duck egg blue chaise, and a cloud of her silk and taffeta skirts and rainbow array of pastries and cakes, has always represented ultimate #LifeGoals for yours truly. But does this not, you may be wondering, conflict with the philosophy of less is more and utilitarian aesthetic of luxe-minimalism that underpins the Beige Renegade world view? On the contrary, that ostensibly maximalist world of cakes for breakfast and gravity defying hairdos, in certain key facets, mirror the minimalist ideals of comfort and luxury. After all, what is luxury but the luxury of comfort? It’s a comfort of time, to float aimlessly in a wooden row boat  on a sunny afternoon; of space, to move at whim through many-chambered palaces; and of indulgence, in every joy-brining enterprise one desires (cake related or otherwise). It is, therefore, self-evident, in my opinion, that luxury and comfort […]

Foreign Correspondant

Current wardrobe inspiration: Puss’N’Boots.  Trust me, it wasn’t supposed to happen this way but I’ll blame in on a childhood obsession with fairy tales, or better still, modern day romantic Kym Ellery.

Velvet At Home

Today I see velvet everywhere I look, it’s become the ubiquitous fabric of the season. For a long time velvet was not cool, usually reserved for those of a more mature age with very traditional homes.
