Ohana Doesn’t Mean Good Service

with No Comments

ohana-swimwear-petra-m-greening1

I would definitely call myself a swimwear collector. It’s not as fancy, or old or really very valuable than most collectables but when you reside beside the seaside they start to become your everyday clothes. I am usually in them from Friday to Sunday evening, then I have to tell myself its only 4 more days till I’m in coloured lycra/polyester 2 pieces again.

I recently bought some fresh new swim digs from Ohana Swimwear, based and designed in Australia, made in China. & I absolutely adore their designs. They come in a range of prices and with different styles and beautiful bold colours. HOWEVER, I wanted to inquire about some extra details that had been left out of the product description but received no email back. After a couple of weeks I went ahead and ordered anyway (with no reply) and sadly ordered 1 item wrong, so I emailed to change it and surprise surprise, nothing back. 
Customer service is such an important factor of owning a brand, any brand, restaurant, fashion, gameing, whatever it is- you are not 100% responsible for your brands success it is equally your customers help that you are where you are.

Super annoyed that they couldn’t answer some simple emails, it should be one of a top priority when handling any business, lucky for them they make good looking swimwear.

Charo Trousers by Aanya

with No Comments

I’ve been absolutely loving these trousers by Aanya. I bought loads of the same style when I was in Sri Lanka because of their gorgeous colours and prints so when I got sent this pair of Charo Trousers it was just an exciting new addition. The fit and fabric is so comfortable and the colour and print is right up my street. I got so many compliments when I was out doing this shoot. It was funny because I literally just threw it all together without any thought or styling. These pants really call for just a simple top, I prefer a crop top as the trousers are quite baggy and you don’t want to completely loose yourself in a baggy ball of disaster. Check them out here!

Clean seas, Aanya prints

I’ve heard a lot of people say summer is over but being a Southsider and living by the beach means we’re usually swimming till the end of November. I’ve always been attracted to this lifestyle, laid back, sand in your hair and surrounded by nature.
Having the option to walk on the sand and feel the ocean in a matter of seconds is a dream come true.

I recently got this beautiful Ikat off- Shoulder Print top from Aanya, it’s constructed with a light fabric and a bright bold ikat print.
The style, usually worn off shoulder is one of my favourite summer staples. This style just feels so summery, effortless and relaxed, often having a bright print or woven/ crochet design stitched into them, two very popular fabric and design choices for that summer/holiday feel.

The Hong Kong based brand, Aanya is an ode to the bohemian, chilled out babe that loves vibrant colours, and doesn’t take herself too seriously. A lifestyle brand that is expanding into other areas such as bags and beach accessories and they are nailing that vibe.

We’re definitely not done with summer just yet.

Outlet Shopping Outfit

with No Comments

Petra Greening LC outfit4

Outlet shopping is one of my favourite things. I love designer goods for their excellent craftsmanship and legacy but I can’t always justify buying most items at full price.  I only go about twice a year to see whats available without any expectations or wish list as they might not have what you want. Its really hit and miss, sometimes you’ll fall in love with something, other times (more often than not) you’ll walk away empty handed so it’s best that you keep an open mind. Its like vintage shopping or thrifting, it’s fun because you don’t know what you might find, you could find a rarity and a gem or that tired looking piece that you tend to see every time you go, like the Charlotte Olympia shoes that sit on shelf: Size 38 and 39 which look like they are screaming for someone to take them home. The poor things look so dusty and battered from all the try-ons that their shelf life will soon expire.

So last week the family did an Ap Lei Chau trip for the usual outdoor furniture shopping, board game shopping and fashion outlet shopping. We started at the top, at the Lane Crawford outlet and worked our way down One Island South Outlet shopping mall. Hubby and I came across some gorgeous Saint Laurent Classic Janis 105′ Chain detail Pumps for about 75% off. They were gorgeous and without a scratch or dent on the leather, in my size and in pristine condition. The Janis Pump is a YSL classic and the chain detail just added a more rock and roll vibe to them- right up my street. So they came home with me thanks to my husband!
Check back for my next post on the black beauties.

Simple simple and ideal for last week when the weather wasn’t as cold as it is now. Dressed down with a baggy sweater with slit sides, skinny jeans and a bucket bag, this is a ready for anything outfit. Especially as you can store your flats in your oversized bag if you want to be a little more fashion forward for a meeting or drinks.

Yoga / Surf Leggings

I recently purchased 3 wicked surf/yoga leggings from Nordstrom and decided to do an outfit post .
It’s also a bonus that you can use any of them as all round workout wear, whether it be surf, swim, jogging or yoga because they’re light, breathable, soo comfortable and provide pretty good insulation, although I wouldn’t recommend these to go surfing in December.
