stephanie’s shanghai affair, part two

Follow-up to previous post: My sister, Stephanie (whom I call Moose, but never mind), recently returned from an eight-day trip to Shanghai. Since she has her own (fashion) blog at The Naked Canvas, I’ve asked for her permission to repost her Shanghai posts onto our Mei Shung blog. For more images, please visit the original post.

Can you imagine going on holiday to London and not making a trip to see Big Ben? What about Paris sans Eiffel Tower? Sounds like madness, right? Well, you can’t visit Shanghai without stopping by the Bund. Sure, it screams tourist attraction, but you can’t help but gawk in awe and wonder when you stand before the majestic skyline, especially at night.

As a native Chicagoan, I naturally hold the Sears Tower (not the Willis Tower) very near and dear to my heart, but I have to admit that the Shanghai World Financial Center (see that bottle cap-looking building on the right?) puts the Sears Tower to shame. [Pamela’s note: *GASP* It so does NOT!] But enough about the Bund, I don’t want Chicago finding out I had a weeklong affair with Shanghai, hehe O:)

This was my first full day in China, so I wanted to keep my outfit comfortable and casual. I styled my look around my new two-toned trench (as seen on Devon Rachel), which was the perfect lightweight coat for sightseeing. For footwear, I couldn’t be more pleased these Cole Haan boots. These were the only “walking shoes” I brought with me on my trip, and they definitely served me well. I splurged a bit on these leather  and suede babies, but they are honestly the most comfortable and durable boots I’ve ever owned. Kudos, Cole Haan!

More to come from Shanghai! 🙂

Shanghai Lights

Hello there! Or should I say 你好? I regrettably report that I am back in the States  (i.e., back to reality). I spent the last week visiting my friend Mason who is studying in Shanghai, and the experience was nothing short of incredible.  Since this was my first time in China, I visited venues that equally showcased the glitz and glamour of the city as well as neighborhoods that revealed the humble way of life of the locals.

Street food vendors and shops were aplenty (and not to mention CHEAP)–my tummy got a little bit spoiled abroad O:) In short, I sort of fell in love with Shanghai. A week just wasn’t enough. Anyone discovered a way to apparate yet?

Stay tuned for [outfit of the day] posts! Here are a few of the highlights from my trip:
