Treasure hunting in china
The best part about any trip is the time we get to explore the treasure spots of a city. There’s nothing that makes me feel more alive and excited than discovering something new, getting to know new people and a new culture better. Travelling comes with this precious luxury. It’s the only thing you can actually be bought that enriches you even more as you cultivate such a knowledge of the world : it really opens up your eyes on so many wonderful things.
We spent something like 5 days in Shanghai invited as special guests of Omega, it was a pure bliss. That day we had the opportunity to discover a beautiful and quite traditional area of the city called Tai Kang Lu which is supposed to be part of the old city of Shanghai very representative of the local culture. James and I really wanted to see the local products, the traditional shops and discover new things. This area was so gorgeous, with little streets full of charm where you could buy anything from a simple key chain to the coolest, fanciest, hand painted tea pot.
It’s very easy to get lost in Tai Kang Lu as these little streets can lead to many different shops, but we still managed somehow to find a frozen yogurt place where they even sell Chinese macarons as well as an awesome organic food restaurant called Origins which was highly suggested to us. My food addictions follow me everywhere! We unfortunately didn’t have time to try it, but it’s a must for next time!
That day, totally unaware of the hours we’d be walking, I picked some Valentino heels for the day as they looked so awesome with this outfit. Surprisingly my feet survived, and this only confirms how comfortable they are. Big cheers to them! Needless to say that these trousers are everything. Literally everything. The cut is so flattering, they go a little bellow the hips and create such a wonderful, lean silhouette. Lovers & Friends, you guys totally rocked on that pair! A total must, must must! Enjoy the images from our little exploration time in Tai Kang Lu peeps :)

Ça me rappelle de bons souvenirs, ayant passé six mois à Shanghai il y a environ un an de cela. La photo avec les Chinois me fait trop marrer, c'est typique d'eux de se prendre en photos avec des Blancs... :-)
C'est tellement différent d'ici .. c'est très beau !
Amazing pictures! Love watching how your hair grows :D

Hey Kristina :)
your photos are really amazing. Thanks for the post.
I have a question to you.
What a camera do you use ? and what lense ?
Do you editing your photos ? What is your favorite program ?
Do you editing all pics alone? or somebody else?
this is very interesting, maybe you could answer me :)

Beautiful beautiful photos!
It's usually when you pick an area and decide to get lost there when you discover the most amazing things and start having interesting conversations with older people. This really is something to appreciate in Shanghai.
I can't believe you walked around in heels all day long in Shanghai!! Amazing, I envy you for being able to do that.
Marvelous photos and beautiful look. Love the cool pants and the heels.
Your article make me wanna travel right now! Love discovering new places! And great outfit, you've got my respect for running around in these heels the whole day!
