Sporadic Posting

Hi, sorry I didn't post that I'd be absent from Fashionist while touring around Vietnam (I'm currently in Hue). This month will be spotty, but I promise to continue posting and we'll be back to our regular schedule in October. Much thanks for the support and eyeballs.

Cam Ly - Hai Ba Trung, HCMC

"I think what inspires my style the most is nature and feelings. I want to dress nice and I want to feel good. I'm not very picking in choosing clothes or choosing accessories, but I want my accessories, my clothes, my outfit to make me feel happy."

Cute wrap around dress.

Her shoes.

Linh - Nguyen Thi Minh Khai, HCMC

"I dress for the occasion, but comfort is essential."

Casual blues in a place where she looks a bit more dressed up than most.

Gabe - Hayes Valley, SF

"Just wearing stuff that is comfortable. Stuff that is appropriate to the weather I guess."

Cute green dress and wore so demurely with a cheery yellow sweater.

Tessa - Hai Ba Trung, HCMC

"I like quirky and fun. And bright colors, love colors, I picked out the blue in my bangle, my earrings and my top and had fun with it."

I like her brown silk dress and how she accents it with shots of blue.

Lovely colorful bangle.

A look at her brown suede peep toes.

Quynh - Han Thuyen, HCMC

"The street, the people, different cultures. Everything."

As the Marketing and PR maven for Chloe, Balenciaga, and Marc Jacobs in HCMC, Quynh makes a splash with her accessories. Here she wears Marc Jacobs' sunglasses and carries a Balenciaga clutch.

See her lovely Jessica Kagan Cushman bangle?

Nina - Hai Ba Trung, HCMC

"I don't know. Just comfort, I guess."

I like the versatility of her simple gray dress that has ribbons of silver. Nina purchased the dress locally at Zen Plaza.

Practical for HCMC heat flip flops.

Christelle - Hai Ba Trung, HCMC

"My style is... I try to find something that is easy to wear and feminine that I can wear from the morning until the evening."

Christelle is the Senior Editorial Advisor at local fashion magazine, East & West, so it's good to know she typifies the fashion needs of a E&W reader. A black dress with a colorful silk scarf is the perfect day into evening outfit.

Joy - Hai Ba Trung, HCMC

"Color, simplicity, fun. I tend to go in a mono color. So it's usually one day I'm all red, the next day I'm all purple, the next day I'm all white. That's how I do my week. I have blue days. I just go through the color spectrum, for the week."

I love her concept of dressing monochromatically every day of the week. Very admirable with keeping with a distinct style vision. Now, I'm hoping to run into Joy on one of her purple days.

White sandals.

Minh Tu - Behind New World Hotel, HCMC (Quick Shots)

She wouldn't let go of the plastic bottle, so that I could better see her dress. Look at the pockets and the cute applique underneath.

Anyta - Hai Ba Trung, HCMC

"I'm totally, totally simple. I'm a simple person. That's not true. I'm simple with my style. When you dress simply, in a way. It never, never goes out of style. It depends on your accessories only."

A simple tailored dress, Anyta knows how to dress well without fuss. Check out how great her watch looks on her wrist in contrast to her dress. (Click for a more detailed view.)

Great leather sandals.

Sarah - Hai Ba Trung, HCMC

"It's inspired by work, to be in a professional setting. But also by the fact that I have to drive a motorbike, so I used to wear a lot of skirts and little dresses and stuff. That's a little more difficult to do on a motorbike, so I go with practical pants and comfort. Since I'm running around all day."

Go Sarah for looking cute and put together, while still being motorbike practical.

A peek at her black ballet flats.
