Ladies Prefer Pearls is a Bangkok-based blog that primarily talks about etiquette, fashion and lifestyle with a sophisticated twist. 

Our mission is to present young ladies with the confidence to be classy. Encouraging them to be old-fashioned in this modern world, through dignified social graces, sophisticated dressing and charmed lifestyle techniques. 

Ladies Prefer Pearls is the go-to platform for anyone looking to obtain an elegant edge.


My name is Karissa and I am a 22-year old Fashion Marketing and Management student, as well as a dog mom of this princess pupper

I adore warm ocean swims, garden tea parties, soft pastel colours, mermaid decors and all things vintage (especially if it comes with lace trimmings). Above all, I adore pearls. In my opinion, it is the first step to becoming a lady. After all, as Grace Kelly said, "Pearls are the queen of gems and the gems of queens". 

So through this blog, let me be the Julie Andrews to your Anne Hathaway. Let me provide you with weekly articles on:
  • Etiquette and advice on how to present yourself in 21st-century situations, 
  • Charming outfit inspirations to make you look and feel classy, 
  • Lifestyle improvement ideas to achieve graceful days at home and out on the town,
  • And occasional tidbits on old Hollywood glamour and Hitchcock films.

If you want to find out more about me and what's in my heart please head over to my first post and read: Letter to my readers.


The blog name Ladies Prefer Pearls was actually inspired by the Marilyn Monroe film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Such a classic.
