Many people say as their new years resolution, “New Year, New Me!” But what I have found out over the years is this statement needs an update. Why would you ever want to start over again and be “new”, when you have such a rich, lived, and experienced “old” you to count on to become a better version of yourself each and every day. We become smarter and “better” human beings by learning from our experiences – good or bad.
So this year, my new year’s resolution is to embrace and love the “old me,” while becoming a a bit more considerate, more organized, more thoughtful, more hard working, more adventurous, more fashionable, one step at a time, day by day. I decided to be a bit more daring in my outfit choice for New Years Eve of 2019. I wanted the glittery feel of the new years with a timeless twist. For this, I had the perfect Parisian dress by ba&sh Paris but wasn’t sure of how much skin it showed. I didn’t know what to wear under it to keep the sexiness of the dress but ease my worry of the possibility of flashing someone.
And then it hit me! My black and white striped Dior underwear and my black and white striped 3.1 Philip Lim purse would make the perfect complement for the dress! As soon as I put them on with my dress, I knew it was going to be my outfit for new year’s. To complete the look, I made a trip to my local vintage jewelry store and bought all of their vintage gypsy style necklaces and layered them on top of each other. I couldn’t be happier with the result.
This year, I wanted to walk into the new year feeling timeless, feeling bold, feeling like I have all of the past to help guide my future. Some sparkling vintage necklaces represent a sparkling new year to live, bold underwear represent some bold decisions to come, and a daring dress represents a more daring me.
As the “new us” start to roll into the new year I want you to know that what we wear truly represent the person we are and will become. So for the next year, I challenge you to think more deeply of your wardrobe and what you put on on a day to day basis. I challenge you to wear more clothes that represent a better you, a “you” that is fearless, a “you” that will rock your world.
As the new year came to an end, all I could think about was how lucky I am to have spent the last year doing what I love as I traveled the world to fashion shows and got to showcase it all to you. I am getting closer and closer to my dreams and all I have to thank is you. Without you believing in me every step of the way, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Blogging can be a very challenging business, but your enthusiasm is what keeps my momentum going. I am so lucky to have the best followers and want you to know that I have worked very hard to make this next year truly amazing. Wishing you a Happy and more fashionable New Year ;).

I was listening to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” as I was cooking Christmas Eve dinner, when a crazy idea came to my mind… I decided to wrap myself in left-over gift wrapping papers and turn myself into a giant Christmas present!!
The holiday season is one of my favorite times of the year because it helps feed my shopaholic soul, show the people I love my appreciation, and is the season of giving back! Today is your lucky day because I compiled a personalized Go-To Gifting Guide for him and her! I spent my whole day listening to Christmas music, drinking hot coco, enjoying the sound of the rain hitting my office window, and browsing the web for hours to find the perfect gifts in all price ranges for you all. I hope you find my this post as helpful as it had been for me and happy holidays!
Today is one of those days I feel like being bold. Why? Because today is my birthday!!! I am one of those people who like to make special days extraordinary. To me, it is important to enjoy and savor every moment on a special occasion in order to create the most vivid and nostalgic memories.
Today, I got ready to go to my friend’s film showing in the Pearl and was feeling adventurous. I wanted to spice things up a bit. So, I found a recent Adidas Jump Suit that I bought and thought it would give me the perfect opportunity to lighten things up and be playful.
Everyone should have a sweater wrap for Fall, in my opinion. Why? Because it is super easy to put on, makes you feel cozy and you can throw over any outfit when you need some extra warmth. The best part: wrap it up and there is your second look with the same sweater!
Every year, Portland A-listers and fashionistas eagerly await it’s biggest fashion event – FashioNXT Fashion Week. While Portland is not known for its fashion scene, FashioNXT rivals even the biggest fashions shows around. With 4 nights of non-stop fashion, it always is a fashion girl’s dream come true! This year I went to 3 of the 4 nights, Thursday – Saturday, and I have to say that I was blown away by what some of its designers are doing. Keep reading to see the highlights and best outfits from each of the nights.
On September 20th, I attended the 4th Annual Rainforest Gala & Runway as an official ambassador for Fashion For Conservation (FFC). The event was jointly organized by FFC & Hoja Nueva at Capitol Hill’s Block 41 in Seattle. Two of my friends joined me together with my photographer. All of us were blown away with how well the event was organized, how eventful the night was, and, of course, the breathtaking show.
Halloween is literally just around the corner! Believe it or not, even though I had dressed up in various characters throughout the year since I moved to US, I had never done a face paint. After my team learned that, they decided I have to do a Halloween makeup/paint this year.
After a brief debate on who is going to do it between myself and one of my teammates, I gave in. Here is the video of of me getting my Halloween makeup done. But before you proceed to watch this video, I have some EXCITING news to share! I am going to do a beauty product GIVEAWAY along with this video to add spice to this spooky holiday. For those of you who like, comment and share this video, you will have a chance to win: (more…)
As much as I wanted to look cool and have a different outfit for all of the runway shows, I decided to just wear a simple body-con dress on the second day of NYFW. I guess that was one of those days I didn’t want to wear something unique just to be different. Instead, I felt like showing off my body and being elegant. This dress is by a brand called “AIRFIELD“. I shared a story about my encounter with this brand in the previous unboxing video. Check it out if you are interested.
Aside from focusing on continuously improving my blog and attending fashion shows, I like to meet new people in the industry whenever the opportunity arises. Learning how other people get good at what they do and how they find inspiration helps me to find direction and inspiration to continue my own journey.
During NYFW, I managed to attend a fashion Mingling network event in-between runway shows. The event was organized by Fashion Mingle, with an intention to build a nationwide network for fashion professionals.

Today, I would like to share with you all of the stuff, the AMAZING STUFF, that I got while on my trips to China, Germany, Amsterdam, and Austria. Ranging from fancy dresses to cute tops, shiny jewelry to perfumes and accessories, I have it all for you – the best of the best! Brands range from Bvlgari, AMP – Morocco, Airfield and much more!
“Putting on formal clothes makes us feel powerful,” which was exactly how I felt when I wore this suit set to NYFW. The ‘power suit’ has become more than a trend nowadays; it is a movement. A woman in a suit to me shows strength, determination, and fearlessness. Who wouldn’t want to be part of this style movement?!
