As much as I try to avoid being trendy (I know, it sounds really weird right?! I am a fashion blogger but I am trying not to be trendy……), I still undoubtedly end up wearing pieces that are in trend. Why? Because a trend you see currently is defined by collective efforts between fashion designers, color and textile experts & manufactures through the form of seasonal collections a couple of seasons ahead. As long as you buy currently, you end up following a trend that was defined before.
Regardless of if I am wearing a trendy piece or not, the key for me is to wear something that makes me look more beautiful and/or adds emotional empowerment (such as making me happy or increasing my confidence).
VLOG: REVIEW ON MY RECENT DESIGNER BAGS AND SHOES COLLECTION
Jun 25th, 2019
I have been collecting designer bags for many years now and as I grow older, I find myself valuing high-quality classic pieces much more than flashy, low-quality, and non-collectible bags that go out of fashion quickly. Those classic high-end pieces just have that magic feel of high compatibility and add the perfect amount of elegance and over all value to your every-day look.
I wouldn’t say I have a big collection, but I do think I have a good collection of some signature classic bags and a few unique and edgy ones. In this video, not only will I be reviewing my recent collection of bags but will also review designer shoes including Chanel, Gucci, Stella McCartney, Fendi and more! I hope this video will help you with some of your upcoming designer bag and shoe purchase decisions! Please do let me know if you end up buying any of the items I reviewed; I would love to hear your feedback and experience. (more…)
In general I am not the kind of girl who likes to wear bling blings. However, every once a while, I like to push my comfort zone and try something new. The key to wearing sequin pieces for a spring day is to pair them with understated classic pieces like a perfectly-cut shorts. Basically, make it the focal point of your look and keep everything else simple and classy.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you probably already know that jewelry is MY THING. When it comes to jewelry, my motto is the more the merrier! A big fan of jewelry in general, I love the way it transforms the most casual outfits into polished and sophisticated ensembles and adds that perfect finishing touch to any night-time look!
The designer for all the jewelry I am featuring today is Wenjing Yang, a Portland-based designer. Wenjing was in apparel design industry for about a decade before she started designing jewelry. Making jewelry is what she loves to do now and it also offers her the freedom and balance she needs between working and taking care of her family. Every year A NOD (TO) DESIGN partners with a non-profit organization, donating 5% of every sale. This year it is teaming up with The Oregon Food Bank to make sure no one suffers from hunger. (more…)

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.
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.
Today I received my JORD watch, and opening it felt like Christmas! I haven’t been this excited to open a package in a while, and when I saw the packaging, it was love at first sight! So I got right into planning an outfit for it in order to post about it today for you – my beautiful styleright’ers.
With the stunning wooden textures, brown and rose golden colors, and handcrafted feel of the watch, darks were the way to go. And after swifting through my mess of a closet, one piece stood out to me – my brand new Free People Jumpsuit I got two weeks ago. (more…)
My lingerie includes brands like Le Perla, Cosabella, L’Agent, Naja, and a few high end Chinese brands. Womens’ complicated dress often results in different bras for different clothes. I have never had one bra that works with most my clothes until I recently came across a Taiwanese brand – Romensa. This Romensa 3816 multiway bra is my recent favorite; and, even better, very affordable.
I cannot say enough good things about this bra. The nude color matches any lighter color outfits. The lack of underwire makes it comfortable to wear. The material is so soft and breathable; and, the best part, shapes my breast well. This video below shows how Romensa Bra 3816 can be used in 8 different ways.
Here is a comparison picture of me wearing another bra brand (on the left) & Romensa 3816 bra (on the right). Pictures speak a thousand words. Of course different sized people have different bra needs. I beleive this brand may be a good candidate for many of my dear readers. Let me know what you think!

Spring time in Portland could be tricky but also kind of fun in terms of what to wear because of weather variances from day to day. On the street, you will see people wearing a t-shirt, a jacket or sweater, and even a winter coat. The upside of that is you can choose from your entire closet to create outfits.
People often put black color clothes away when it comes to spring. For me, wearing black in spring is perfectly fine as long as you find ways to light it up or add colors. In my outfit today, I used a colorful scarf to add vibrance to the overall look.
You may already know my philosophy against chasing fashion. I do not drive my purchase decisions based on what is “IN” today. For me, style should expresses your personality as well as inner essence rather than being “IN”!
A dear tango friend challenged me to identify “3 essential bags”. I gladly accepted her challenge and am happy now hear your thoughts about this post. What a great idea! Hopefully this will delight my friend and, all of you, my dear readers.
The 3 essential bags I suggest:
1. A tote bag:
As an example, this blue Ferragamo tote bag is one of my favorite totes. Generally, I prefer single use bag but since this strap is removable so I am fine with it. After all, you get to use the bag in two different ways. A tote serves many occasions: business meetings, conferences, everyday go-to-work bag…etc. The key for you is to watch the ratio between the tote size and your body size for good visuals.
Below are three tote bags I like at different price points. (Images are clickable.)
If you can choose only one thing for the entire summer to wear, what would be that one thing for you?
This pretty black and white floral trouser jumpsuit takes comfort to a whole new level! If I could spend the entire of summer wearing just the one thing, this would be “THE THING”. In addition to great fabric choice, comfort and great fit, I love that this jumpsuit is hard to wrinkle. I can sit, slouch or even twist myself into a pretzel without being afraid of those pesky little wrinkles. (more…)
