VINTAGE BLING BLING
Jun 3rd, 2019
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.
NEW OBSESSION: A NOD (TO) DESIGN JEWELRY
May 24th, 2019
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…)

IN THE TRENCHES
Jan 31st, 2019
Jumpsuits are my THING, as most of you probably already know. Well, guess what my SECOND THING is. Yes, it is trench coat. If jumpsuits are my lovers, then trench coats are like soulmates. They come in all kinds of different shapes, lengths and colors. But unlike soulmates, there is no need to be faithful to them.
Jan 21st, 2019
Of all the different materials for clothing out there, cashmere has to be my favorite for winter. Soft and comfy, cashmere sweaters have always been my absolutely go-to pieces of clothing in the winter time, when I don’t feel like putting too much effort.
YOUR GO-TO HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

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!

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.

SWEATER WRAP – FALL ESSENTIAL
Nov 20th, 2018
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!
NYFW: ATTENDING FASHION MINGLING EVENT
Oct 15th, 2018
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.
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.
