Wearing: Tee – T by Alexander Wang. Tartan trousersZara. Slingback heels – Lucy Choi. Bag – JinYoo103684. Watch – Sekonda. Gold bangles – ASOS. Thank you Kit for helping with the outfit shots!

This is where I take all my meetings to, and possibly also the reason I make meetings for. Client meetings, PR meetings, blind dates, sword duels, eBay item handovers… husband looks up from the sofa and asks ‘what are we having for dinner?‘, I’m glad you asked dear, shall we convene at Aubaine to discuss whether the chicken needs to be defrosted or will it be the Indian takeaway again?-meeting. Back when I was on student budget I used to visit Selfridge’s to fondle Louboutins and contemplate not eating for a month but then I’d catch a whiff of the croissants from Aubaine and I’d go pffft and splurge on a creamy latté instead. It would be a decision that allowed for a merry month of eating pot noodles and being a happy student. I believe it was actually around the time I could afford my first Louboutins a year or two back when they opened another branch on Dover Street, I braved the lunch menu and fell straight in love. If you treat yourself to breakfast, you must try the duck eggs omelette with Ugie smoked salmon and horseradish crème fraîche; for lunch, the Lobster spaghetti. I’ve never been for dinner but I imagine it won’t be long till the hubby and I have a meeting there about who will do the laundry and I can sneakily convince him to stay and eat.

This is not a sponsored post, I just like sharing nice places with you.

    Also want to echo everyone else and say that your photos are gorgeous. Would love to see a post on your gear or perhaps some photo tips!

    Everything is so bright and shine I’m going blind. This place looks great! Thanks for sharing.
    One important question, do you really walk around on those stilletos?, like..really walking? climbing the tube? If you do, PLEASE share your survival tips on high heels as well. I’m dying to know! (I’ve been saving up and collecting some nice Prada, Miu Miu and McQueen so far but, gosh, I can only rarely wear them. And it feel like a pity..)

    replied:

    Oh my, these are probably the most comfortable heels I own, not even kidding. I generally tend to think that slingbacks are much much more comfortable to walk around in than courts, so might be worth a try? Trust me though, I have some designer shoes that basically end up as shelf ornaments because they’re so impossible to walk in – I don’t even think it’s necessarily a heels survival thing, just smart shopping? I think anything up to 4inch is generally walkable, unless the sole is super narrow. I guess the only sort of, logical, tip is to wear heels if you’re not going too far, and you know the escalators are working in the tube. (i.e I’ve been avoiding, or changing out of flats, because the tube stop I use regularly has escalator work… c’est la vie?) Carry a pair of flats around, and change out in them once you’ve had enough… I know it’s not the most glamourous but if it means you get to wear some of your favourite heels exactly when you mean to, and not be suffering, I don’t see why that’s bad!

    Could you tell me where I can get your friend’s turquoise color bag? I fell in love with that bag! I’m also curious about your lip color! I used to wear only deep red, matte lipsticks and had a closet full of black clothes, but now, I’m into macaron colors! (have no idea why!)

    Reply

    replied:

    Of course! It’s by MCM – I found the turquoise here but not available, there’s a reddish/pinkish one available here? Check your nearest MCM in Seoul, I remember it’s new collection so they should all have it by now! The lip colour I’m wearing here is by Topshop

  29. I love Aubaine, but it can be a bit pricey so I keep it for special occasions. You look a bit like an ‘office lady’ in this outfit, was it intentional? I’m guessing the meeting you were going to wasn’t about who should do the laundry or clean the bathroom :)

    Indeed it wasn’t an Kebab/burger decision making with the hubby! I have the same sentiments about their prices too actually, usually I just pop in for coffee but wowza their Lobster Spaghetti is 23squids, now THAT would be a special day. x

  49. Hi Shini, just wanted to let you know that on this uni computer I’m using to take a *ahem* liiiittle break from research isn’t displaying your photos doubled as one correctly (the 2 vertical portrait ones). The second photo is spaced below the first throughout the post. The computer’s resolution is 1920 x 1080.
    Thanks for sharing the gorgeous photography as always and giving me an imaginative escape link :)

  50. I couldn’t agree more about Aubaine. I’ve been going to their Chelsea cafe for years. I take all my friends there including bloggers. The service is exceptional. I was thrilled when they gave me a surprise Valentine’s Day gift.
