“If ya don’t know, now you know”

I shouldn’t really have to say much more, however if you are not savvy to this hip movement, here’s the deal. Tom gives a new pair of shoes to a kid that needs them every time someone purchases a pair. We can all get behind a movement in humanity like that, right? Not to mention, these are quiet possibly the most comfortable shoes ever made, I think I will be wearing my ash grey pair until they fall off my feet. For a woman with hundreds of shoes, that’s a pretty incredible statement.

Guys can rock them with just about anything, and the cutest girls I’ve seen in TOMS are wearing shorts or rompers (the hot pant kind of rompers!)

For putting this look together in Shanghai… I’d suggest ordering your TOMS online & then getting your H&M on in town.

One for One.

I wonder what kid is getting to enjoy a pair of TOMS as much as I am.

Summer is finally showing her colors in Shanghai cityscapes and the windows of your local wears are starting to brighten up as well.

This Spring, make it your earth friendly goal to recycle all the old plastics in your house ~ you know that drawer filling up with bags you had to buy because you forgot to carry your stylish shopper to the market. Toss them out to the recycling carts and for the love of fashion, don’t forget to leave your Crocs at the corner too.

This season focus first on your footwear. The more people there are in a city the more time you will spend looking down at their kicks. Make yours shine and you might even be able to rock them at M1nt this summer.

There are a few great places in Shanghai to satisfy sneaker fiends, my favorite place to look is a street culture staple on Xinle lu, Source. You can find everything trending there from minimalism to rock solid bling and limited edition artist collaborations. Peek around a little longer and you might find something else that catches your eye to complete the look… and hopefully you’ll be dropping jaws in the metro too.

Street style has a wonderful way of being easy to assemble. Now that you have your kicks in order ~ find a great pair of jeans. Shredded, faded, tumbled, washed, worn, ripped, skinny, and just waiting for you to rock them all summer long. For girls I’d even go as far as to suggest getting yourself extra fit that you can rock the ever present shanghai staple also know as ~ the denim hot pant. Was there ever a greater design idea? Its arguable… just make sure you sport a well worn wash this season, pair it with the highest heels money can buy you on Shaanxi nan lu and you’ll be ripe for the picking this summer.

Last but not least…. Tee’s, Tee’s, and more Tee’s ~ the attack of the T-shirt is coming this Spring like you’ve never seen it before. Graphics are everywhere, in Shanghai, you’ve Uniqlo, American Apparel and H&M cranking out new styles every two weeks, so there’s plenty of room for updating your look. Girls can even get on the retro trend and try out loose shapes or even create your own custom look by cutting off the sleeves, or cutting out the neckband to make a boat neck or an off the shoulder tee….

Last but not least… grab some gold accessories. They are sexy, and so hot on trend you might be caught digging through your granny’s jewelry box to find forgotten treasures.

Peace & Love,
