Exploring the beauty of Samoa

Allison Dehghan’s trip to Samoa serves two good purposes.

While she is here to be a bridesmaid at her friend’s wedding, she is also able to explore the natural wonders of Samoa.

She is from Sydney, Australia.

Allison says it was a perfect escape to witness another part of the world and the best part of it all was bringing her nine-year-old daughter, Leighton, with her.

“This is our first time here in Samoa and it is amazing. We have been everywhere. My friend’s family took us around Samoa for sightseeing,” she shared with the Dear Tourist team.

“We have been to the To Sua Ocean Trench, the Piula Cave Pool and the Papaseea Sliding Rocks.”

“So they have this random waterfall on the side of the road and we also went there for a swim. It was really good. We barely had time to stay in the hotel.”

Samoa is so far their best holiday destination.

“We have been to Fiji and over there is busy. The resort staff members are always busy. Coming here I was able to experience that it is more laid back and you can feel the presence of a stronger culture.”

“That is within my own opinion and even though Samoa and Fiji are both in the Pacific, they are far different from each other.”

“Even though the weather is hot but we have had a good time here and enjoyed every bit of it,” she adds.

When asked about the highlight of their trip, Leighton enthusiastically replied: “The highlight would be the Piula Cave Pool when the other girls placed flowers in the pool to take a photo.”

There is nothing more relaxing than seeing your child happy and Allison knows it well.

She adds they hope to return for another island experience.

“The staff members of the hotel have been really attentive and the people are so friendly here. We feel very welcomed and just have nothing to worry about is good.”Read more at:www.marieaustralia.com/red-carpet-celebrity-dresses | www.marieaustralia.com/backless-formal-dresses

Supermodel Soo Joo Park Speed-Shops Saks in New York

In a store where there’s a seemingly endless supply of all the items one could covet at any given time, how does one possibly make up their mind when it comes to figuring out what to buy? And when the destination in question happens to be one of the most iconic department stores in the world—Saks Fifth Avenue in New York—and the current season happens to offer some of the most enticing pieces in recent memory—pouffed Stella McCartney skirts, color-blocked Balenciaga dresses, oversize Gucci butterfly glasses—how does one decide without going into overwhelm overdrive?

“I think it’s all about letting the clothes speak,” says Soo Joo Park. “I’m definitely an impulse shopper—I let the clothes call to me.”

The Korean-born, California-raised Park has always taken an instinctual approach to clothing. Thus, she was the obvious choice when it came to living out what must be every fashion-lover’s fantasy in the video above: In an after-hours, no-holds-barred, dream-wardrobe shopping spree at Saks where nothing is off-limits and every treasure is up for grabs. For Soo Joo, it all began on The Main Floor, continuing straight up the famous escalators to the recently renovated; Designer on 3; pausing for just a moment to ham it up between the bellman’s carts on The Advance on 5; then playing it up in the exclusive Personal Styling Suite on 4 just before heading out in the timeless, wood-paneled elevator in a brand new ever-so-chic pink Miu Miu car coat.

As far as strategy, Park is more about keeping things light than anything else: “I don’t like to plan my shopping ahead,” she explains. “There’s a certain magic to seeing a garment in real life and feeling the fabric—and anyway, oftentimes when I have something in mind to buy, I’ll go into the store and come out with something completely different.”

Still, when it comes to committing to the lucky clothing that catches her eye, Park does follow a few self-imposed rules. Below, her tips for picking the right statement piece, selecting the right investment pieces, and avoiding buyer’s remorse should you decide to go on your own exploratory spring shopping mission.

Start With Small Statements

“Accessories are the best because you can tone them down. Even the craziest accessories look good with simple things like jeans and a T-shirt.”

Consider Real Life

“When it comes to big statement pieces, there still has be some percentage of practicality. If it’s difficult to think of what you’d wear it when you’re not doing a full maximalist ‘look’, maybe skip it.”

Invest in Outerwear

“The easiest way to refresh your wardrobe? A new jacket or coat. The older I get the more I’m loving different kinds of coats. You can wear the same basic stapes underneath—plain T-shirts, jeans—but cool outerwear makes all the difference.”Read more at:plus size evening wear | cheap formal dresses

Is coral pink the latest on the fashion block

Looking for what’s the latest on the fashion circuit? With the warm weathers setting in, vibrant and bold colours are a popular choice and after a bevy of cheery yellows and cool whites, it seems it is time for a much softer hue of coral pink as our Bollywood celebrities showed us.

And who better than the trendsetters to show us how to pull off this pretty shade? Recently, Malaika Arora, who is considered a popular fashion icon experimented with the colour and stepped out in an elegant halter neck pantsuit from Amit Aggarwal. The outfit was washed with a soothing shade of coral pink and we like the hint of metallics on the collar that are a signature of the designer. The look was accessorised with a pair of Viange silver earrings.

Not just the contemporaries, but the colour goes equally well in ethnic also as Huma Qureshi showed us. The Jolly LLB 2 actor was clad in a charming kurta palazzo set from Anoli Shah and her minimalist outfit was layered with an intricately embroidered floor-length jacket.

Lara Dutta also played up the colour on the sets of her show High Fever, where she wore a bodycon gown in coral with a ruffle effect on the bodice. The Rajat Tangri number also featured a cape trailing behind and we think it was an attractive piece. However, the actor’s nude make-up tones were a letdown and we wish she had opted for some rich colour like wine or burgundy on the lips.Read more at:formal dresses sydney | formal dresses perth
