What is your name?

Thuy Mai

Tell us a bit about yourself..

I was born and raised in Vietnam but have been living in Melbourne for most of my life. I am a free spirited individual and am always on the hunt for new and exciting experiences. Fashion/travel/food, I love them all! I hope to do more and more of it in the future and channel my experiences through my photography work on my blog and showcase the different outfits I’d wear on every occasion ☺

What is the name of your blog?


How did you get into blogging?

I’ve always wanted to do something like this on the side as my hobby and personal project. I want my style to speak up through the images that are on my blog and social media channels and hopefully inspire others to share theirs!

Tell us a bit more about what your social media/ blogs include..

I started out blogging about different seasonal outfits and where to buy the things I’ve posted. I wanted to show people and readers from all over the world what the Melbourne style was all about.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

It’s mostly what I put together and how I feel I should look with different pieces of clothing. I mix a bit of ‘what’s hot’ to my own sense of style and outfit choice.

What got you into fashion and styling?

I wanted to be able to share my sense of fashion and how I see myself with every other individual out there who may share the same interest

What are styles in fashion and design that we should be looking out for this summer?

I think there will be lots of off –the-shoulder and one-armed tops, lots of patterned and stripy prints this summer, statement chokers will also continue to reign the neck accessory category and high waisted swimwear that elongates your legs and hips will be all around!

What are 3 all-time fashion staples everyone should own?

A pair of skinny black jeans
A black leather jacket
And a denim jacket!

It’s no secret that interior design and fashion go together, so what is a bedroom colour scheme/ style theme that can never go wrong?

ALL WHITE colour scheme or white against very soft colours like blush, shades of grey and blues. White goes with all the neutral shades.

We know that you love food – what is your favourite go to meal at the moment?

That would be my all-time favourite Vietnamese Hue style noodle soup aka Bun Bo Hue!

If your needing some inspiration you’ll be sure to find it from Thuy’s blog, whether you're struggling for ideas on what to wear, where to eat or simply want to have a look at some beautiful photography- it’s a one stop shop.
