What Sassy Wants: April

16 April, 2015

April showers bring May flowers, so don’t let any drizzles or cloudy skies get you down this month, Sassy ladies! We’ve scouted out the latest and greatest fashion, home-ware and beauty buys that we’re coveting this month. Have a browse and see if anything takes your fancy – everyone needs a bit of retail therapy once in a while!

150415-SHK-Collage1-WhatSassyWantsApr-v1Shokay Tea Time Scarf
Hot one minute, cold the next… this weather is playing with us! Here at Sassy, we’ve got our eyes on the stunning scarves at Shokay, especially this Dusk/Alpine Tea Time Scarf, made with woven yak and bamboo blend. Super versatile, this simple yet beautiful scarf will go with any outfit and keep you warm when the sun goes down and it feels a bit chilly.

Available online here for $736.28.

Nailae nail art
If you love getting your nails done like we do, you’ve got to check out Nailae. It’s an app with a whole host of funky designs that get printed straight onto your nail – a bit like 3D printing. Check out Shaneli’s nails here. Simply download the app on iTunes here, get playing and choose the design you want before you head to the nail salon. It saves loads of time as the design just gets printed straight on to your nail instead of a nail technician painting it on! Give it a minute or two to dry, and voila, you’ve got funky nails for your night out.

Nailae’s printers are currently in two salons in Hong Kong: Fast Beauty in Central and Blossom Nail Beauty in Kowloon.

Naturally Better Box
It’s so important to support businesses and products that are serious about promoting and providing cruelty-free products. That’s why we were delighted to come across Naturally Better Box, a carefully curated box full of amazing natural products! Not only are the beauty, food and household items cruelty-free, but they are also made using natural ingredients that ACTUALLY work. Check out their recently launched online store here, or subscribe to receive a whole box of full-sized natural goodies every month.

Available online here. An annual box subscription costs $880 – see all options here

kikki.K Vision Board Kit
This super cute, global Swedish design brand has just hit Hong Kong, opening a new store in Harbour City. We love all the sweet stationary, but the Vision Board Kits have got to be our favourite with their selection of inspirational quotes. Choose from the minimalist range or the ‘life is sweet’ range and get motivated!

Available online here for $77.11 ($9.95 USD) or at the new store: Level 4, Shop 411, Ocean Centre, Harbour City, Hong Kong. 

150415-SHK-Collage2-WhatSassyWantsApr-v1Taylor Swift Keds
Hong Kong’s starting to heat up, so it’s time to ditch the boots! Looking for something a little more comfortable than those strappy sandals that have an amazing ability to rub you right on the side of your foot until until you get blisters? Why not whack on a pair of comfortable, easy and stylish sneakers? Our favourite new trainers to hit HK are the latest offerings from Keds. The summer collections feature collaborations with Kate Spade and Taylor Swift – so if you’re a Swifty fan don’t miss out on these limited edition lace-ups. How cute are these yellow cherry blossom ones in the collage above?

Available in C.P.U stores in Hong Kong and here for $440. 

COS white shirt
We’re always on the look out for new workwear pieces to add to our wardrobes, and our first stop for clean cut, unique designs has got to be COS. The new collection has a limited edition unisex white shirt – a reinvention of the brand’s iconic white shirt – that would easily slot into your closet. Clean and crisp, this is the ideal versatile piece that you can mix up and individualise with your own accessories!

Available at all COS stores in Hong Kong, see store locations here

Banana Porter collection at iBlues
We’re huge fans of the talented Marta Grossi, the creative genius behind @bananagraffiti (follow her on Instagram to see the funky, fruity artworks!), which is why we can’t wait to get our hands on her brand new fashion collection in collaboration with iBlues. Her whimsical designs include a bright banana yellow shirt adorned with pink flamingos and a cheeky banana print dress – perfect for summer. These unique and fun pieces are sure to put a smile on your face… we love this cute pop-art style shirt. Snap them up quick because we’re sure these will sell out fast!

Available at selected iBlues stores in Hong Kong. 

Bamboa Rombo Fruit Bowl
With Hong Kong heating up, all we want to eat are light, summery meals and fresh fruit! And where better to store your bananas, dragonfruit and apples straight from the wet market than in this gorgeous Rombo Fruit Bowl from Bamboa? Made from bamboo, this attractive bowl would look fabulous stuffed full of colourful fruit, and the best thing is it’s made from a sustainable material. What’s more,  your purchase helps support local artisans and rural communities without adversely effecting the environment. It’s a win-win!

Available online here for $360.
