I love watching women around me for ideas of how to put myself together better. In Hong Kong, women often wear fluid dresses (partly to cope with the heat!). Not too tight and with modest coverage, they conveyed sophistication and ease without sacrificing a bit of style or power.

One of my favorite go-to looks for work is a dress and heels. I had no idea that Longchamp made anything other than great bags, but I fell in love with this dress – the long sleeves make the lightweight silk workplace appropriate and perfect for a summer day around the office.
