FISHNET TIGHTS WITH RIPPED JEANS

FISHNET TIGHTS WITH RIPPED JEANS

Sep 2nd, 2018

I’m way more open to try different styles and colors of things these days than I used to be. I feel like there is no such thing as “I don’t look good in red,” or “a skirt never looks good on me,” etc. It is really just a matter of finding a perfect design and fit. It took me years to come to that realization. I am very happy with how open minded I am now with trying different things and explore what works and what doesn’t.

STRAW HAT, YOUR BEST SUMMER ACCESSORY

STRAW HAT, YOUR BEST SUMMER ACCESSORY

Aug, 9th, 2018

Some people believe accessories define a look, while others think accessories add to a look. I lean more towards the latter. I think accessories are called accessories for a reason. I don’t own a lot of hats but I am always in the hunt for a perfect hat. The straw hat has become the key accessory for this summer.

When I pick clothes to buy, I tend to choose things that could help me either look tall or slim. High waisted pants definitely fit the bill! It lifts your waistline and naturally makes your legs look longer than normal. It is the real summer 2018 must-have. If you haven’t gotten one, you are late in the game.

FAVORITE TOP

Jul 16th, 2018

What makes a piece of clothing a favorite, that one item you always reach for and love wearing again and again? For me, it has to be a combination between comfort, versatility & fit. This top that I got from Nordstrom is a great example of that.

BEST BOUTIQUE SPA IN PORTLAND

Jul 9th, 2018

I used to get facials once a week when I lived in China because it was an affordable way of maintaining my skin healthy. However, when I moved to the U.S I was sad to realize that, in comparison to China, facials were not only unreasonably expensive, but the quality was not as good. That is, until I met Sally-Ann from Into Eden. (more…)

WE MADE A SILK DRESS FOR THE FIRST TIME

A few weeks ago, my team and I spontaneously decided to make a dress on our own. The whole process of creating the dress took about 4 hours.

NYC ANGELMAN SYNDROME COLLECTIONS SHOW

May 29th, 2018

One very important trait we possess in our society is hierarchy. Hierarchy creates competition which in turn drives creativity. This is why I, as a fashion blogger, try to attend as many emerging designer fashion shows and competitions as I can. I want to support our youth and future generations in order to keep our fashion industry lush, alive, competitive, and ever evolving. When I got my invitation to come to the Angelman Syndrome Collections Presentation NYC, I was thrilled to once again be a part of the cultivation of our world’s young and genius emerging designers.

AN INTERVIEW WITH WASHINGTON STATE CHINESE TV

AN INTERVIEW WITH WASHINGTON STATE CHINESE TV

May 28th, 2018

Happy Memorial day everyone!

A while ago, Washington State Chinese TV interviewed me for a program named “Pingchang Liao.” “Pingchang” is mandarin for ordinary or casual, and “Liao” means chat. This channel interviews “ordinary” people to offer them an opportunity to talk about their lives, dreams, aspirations, and stories. I was honored to be invited by Annie, the host of this program, to share my story.

I hope you enjoy this interview, which I agreed to do in the hopes of showing you a deeper glimpse of who I am.

POLKA DOTS | MAKING A COMEBACK

POLKA DOTS | MAKING A COMEBACK

May 8th, 2018

When I was 16 years old, Polka dots were everything! My mom would wear polka dots every other day and my dad wore polka doted ties to every major occasion. I was sick of them! I never wanted to see them ever again. Even when my aunt bought me a very expensive polka dot dress for my birthday, I told her to return it and get me something else. It wasn’t until I turned 25, when polka dolts came back in style, and I finally realized the elegance of the pattern. (more…)
