Get Ready for a New Look!

DelectablyChic! will (finally) be getting a makeover over the next few weeks, switching to a more “traditional” blog-like layout.  As you probably have realized, DelectablyChic! is reporting LESS on fashion and food, and MORE on how the founder/webitor-in-chief views and feels about the world.  Whether there’ll be further changes is yet to be determined, as […]

Anything Goes? Well, NOT For Me, Appearance-wise

I’m really sick of the “anything goes” society seem to be moving towards to today – especially for appearance.  Yes, I like that we don’t have to dress up as much, to the point that some clubs have either toned down their dress codes for formal dining, or, even CLOSED their most formal dining areas.  […]

Investing is like Shopping…Kinda

A few years ago, I started building up my investment portfolio.  I started paying more attention to business news and the stock market – probably a little later than I should have.  My dad is in finance, but unlike my mom, who TRIED to get me interested in IT (didn’t work – if one can […]

Primates of Park Avenue: Charmed Women, Sad Lives, Semi-Fiction

I just finished Primates of Park Avenue, a “memoir” by Wednesday Martin, published a couple of years ago.  Written in a  satirical manner, the book criticizes the lives of Upper East Side women, particularly mothers, from a “transplant” perspective – as in someone who is not really “from” there, but instead, moved in after her […]

All That Social Media Stress…Time to Unplug?

Let’s face it.  You can’t live with it, nor can you live without it.  Many, many of us are addicted to it.  At the same time, however, it’s causing A LOT of stress.  With everything going on in the world, one’s news feed is pretty much inundated with other people’s opinions, often saying how they’re […]

It’s New York Fashion Week and I Don’t Care…

In fact, I have no plans to watch anything they’re streaming.  I just don’t seem to care anymore.  It’s not that I don’t like clothing or because I feel like the styles don’t apply to me, it’s just that it’s not something I’m not interested in writing much about anymore.  I feel like my posts […]

Do All Immigrant Experiences Count? Or Just SOME?

Everyone, important or not, seems to be writing or talking about their own immigrant experience or that of their family members.  That they came to escape persecution.  So here’s my piece.  Most of you know I’m a first generation Canadian born Canadian (or if you want to be ethnically accurate, Canadian born Chinese).  My parents […]

Let’s Face it – We’re B!tches to Each Other…

 …and I’m not the first to write about this.  Yes, ladies, we’re mean.  We hate each other and we’re often WORSE to one another than men are to us.  Most of us grew up hating our mothers criticizing us for what we did, yet as adults, we do the same to one another – especially […]

Do You Have a ‘Regular Look’? I Do!

I don’t profess to having a daily “uniform” a la Carolina Herrera or Mark Zuckerberg – as in I don’t wear the exact same thing daily.   However, I have a go-to “look” which changes depending on the season.  When it’s cooler out (say, October to late April or so), I like my long sweaters or […]
