Spring is my favourite season of the year and I love to celebrate it every day. I love flowers in my house and also I love to wear them on my chlotes. This time of the year I can't get enough of colorful dresses and accessories around me. Take a look at these magical pieces.

Give your beachwear a feminine flourish with this silk floral print Leaves of Grass dress. Wear it over a bikini with oversized shades and a wide-brimmed sun hat whilst sipping cocktails poolside. Sounds fabulous?

Definitely beyond beautiful this Leaves of Grass, Alette embroidered top. Think boho-luxe and team this beautifully top with tailored shorts and highlight with shimmering metallic accessories.

A luxe nod to the spring's fascination with the Orient, Robert Cavalli's chinoise print dress is a fabulous evening wear choice that's perfect for vacation. Yay...

Temperley London. Match the gem embellished detailing on this vibrant jade silk kaftan with sparkling silver accessories for a dramatic summer party outfit. I am dramatically in love with this dress.

Matthew Williamson, Dark Escape box clutch. Emulate the runway style and wear it with a block color dress to stay bright after dark. I'm in love even with the name Dark Escape...

Roberto Cavalli satin platform sandal. Yummy.

Anna Sui Beauty Mirror. The perfect accessory in your bag for check your fabulous look any time during the day.

Luc Kieffer, passiflore flower cuff. Simply gorgeous...

It's Monday again, and I desperately need to have some fun with you. Take a guess please. What is this on the picture? Is it pink perfection? Definitely. I will complete this post tomorrow, until then keep on guessing dear friend.

And yes this gorgeous piece of jewelry is a Vivienne Westwood Diamante Orb Brooch, coming together with this fabulous Diamante Orb Necklace, they almost look like sparkly diamonds.

I love Betsey Johnson's drawing and I think her dresses, bags, shoes, accesories are just fabulous. She's one of my favourite designer and her obsession about pink and bows, just makes me smile. If you ever been in a Betsey Johnson shop, you probably understand me.

I think her perfume is one of the best fragrance I ever smelled (not to mention that lovely bottle it has).

She's always come up with something girly, gorgeous, stylish fun, like this plastick bow watch. Isn't it adorable?

Her shoes are gorgeous and lovely. Viva La Betty!

I have some problems on blogspot lately. I can't open the SITST page the last days and can't open some blog pages. Does anybody know what happening around here? Before I go crazy...Give me some love please and let me know if you have the same experience. I go to drink some tea...and hope tomorrow will be better (but that's what I thought yesterday and today was just the same, so I screaming for help and support). Love: Evi

Can I take you somewhere beautiful? Let me introduce you to the China Jade Garden, which is another beauty spot around Ningbo. Named after a huge jade stone (below), which is in the middle of a lake, covered by mountains, beautiful temples and a look-out tower.

The huge jade stone in the middle of the lake (behind the look-out tower).

The entrance in Chinese design.

Most of the sculptures here made from jade. I love this frog, but I would never kiss him :-)

Lovely bridge "network" on the lake.

Green green everywhere...

So Chinese...

The beautiful temple complex, captured from top of the look-out tower (which was so high I thought I'd never make it).

Isn't it breath-taking?

I loved this sculpture...

...and this small tower too (I know the picture is not straight, I have problem with taking straight pictures :-)

Lake with a sculpture.

As I already wrote, it's so many wonderful places around Ningbo (China). A place like this can fill me up with positive energy for months. Just get out sometimes wherever you live. Nature has some magical power which can not substitute anything else.

Photos 2008 July, by me.
