Melissa is, no doubt, one of my favorite footwear brands. The brand from Brazil is not only stylish,  but they have the best collaborations with some of the hottest designers in the world– not just fashion (Karl Lagerfeld, Vivienne Westwood, Jason Wu) but also architects (Karim Rashid) and furniture designers (The Campana Brothers), rendering them art pieces in themselves– and most of all, comfortable! (They are made with patented MELFLEX technology, a hypo-allergenic, recyclable, and extremely flexible material.) I guess with age, I’ve come to terms with wearing flats more– even though I stand all of 5’0″ (five foot-zero!)– and especially when I travel.

Melissa has also become my favorite pair of walking, travel shoes, and they can often take me from day to night. I’ve made it a point to pack at least a pair with me on a trip so I’ve literally been around the world with Melissa! But this summer, they are also giving you the chance to travel to paradise– yes, that’s Club Paradise in Palawan— or a staycation at Discovery Primea— with a raffle promo that runs til March 31, 2016! (Please read until the end of this post to find out how!)

Sharing with you some of my recent favorites! (Notice, I prefer gold as they are close to the color of the skin, making the feet look slimmer, and the silhouette elongated.)

Cheryl Tiu- Victoria Park Flower Market- Hong Kong- Melissa + Vivienne Westwood
Matchy-matchy with the flowers at Victoria Park’s flower market, which is extremely packed during Chinese New Year. Locals search for the perfect auspicious blooms for their homes or offices. I decided to wear floral from head-to-toe for this occassion, haha, and chose the plum blossoms which signify strength and endurance.
