Pop Up on Orchard Street

A Lovely Group of Dresses
Often I like to take a late afternoon stroll around my neighborhood on the Lower East Side. If you have been away for any length of time, like I was for the month of August in the country, when you return you will find that stores and new restaurants have popped up like mushrooms on a steamy day.

But one Sunday afternoon a few weeks ago, I took my usual route up Orchard Street and found a delightful pop-up shop called Mestiza.

 Mestiza owners Alessandra Perez-Rubio and
Louisa Rechter.
They met at Washington University in
St. Louis.
 Four ornate cocktail dresses.
 Embroidered Gladiola Dress
 Each of the designers has a connection
to the Philippines which is
reflected in this dress.
 A gentleman friend shows off
the Fiesta Coral Gladiola Dress
 Mestiza is a term used in the Philippines
to describe a person of mixed ancestry.
 Sage Crinkle Chiffon Bauhinia Gown
 Elaborate sequin and bead
 Tropical window display.
 The Smokeshow Half-Moon Dress
The Black Terno Midi in
the Mestiza Look Book.
Gorgeous model.

So if your off to a fancy party, look up
Mestiza and
À Bientôt!

  7. Burma places to visit is incomplete without Mandalay- the fromer royal capital. From Yangon, it takes nearly 2 days to get by car. It is best to go by air, slightly expensive but helps to save a lot of time. In World War II, the British (Burma used to be a British colony from 1885-1948) brought Indian prisoners of war to build and develop the city. At that time, Indians accounted for more than 30% of the Mandalay population. Since the late 1980s, due to the political situation in China, the Chinese from Yunnan and Sichuan massively swept down Mandalay to do business, holding important economic positions in the city. It is estimated that the Chinese now account for more than 40% of the population.

  8. Myanmar or Burma is highly appreciated by my friends who are cultural lovers as a place where the beauty is still kept intact and unspoil compared to other sceneries in the world. I wonder what Burma has attracting so many people? If you also have these concerns, let's try on discover this country by yourself. Let’s spend your summer vacation in Burma exploring the land of sacred temples, friendly people and nostalgic beauty. Surely, you will have memorable experience and learn more about its culture as well as custom.
