YOUR GO-TO HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

YOUR GO-TO HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

Dec 13th, 2018

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!

SWEATER WRAP – FALL ESSENTIAL

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

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.

SUMMER TREND: HIGH-WAISTED PANTS

SUMMER TREND: HIGH-WAISTED PANTS

Jul 25th, 2018

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

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.

Hello everybody! I am back from my quick trip to London for the 2018 London Fashion Week. I finally caught up on my sleep and am excited to share pictures and stories of my experience. Stay tuned for upcoming posts! In the meantime, I have a late winter Portland snow event series for today.
 

Since this winter had been milder than normal in Portland, I was thinking “will it not snow this winter entirely?” And then it snowed. I guess my call to the universe was heard. : )

WATCH OUT FOR THIS WATCH!

WATCH OUT FOR THIS WATCH!

FEB 14th, 2018

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…)

WOOL SWEATER + JADE NECKLACE

WOOL SWEATER + JADE NECKLACE

Jan 18th, 2018

Aside from fashion, my other passion over the last 10 years has been dancing Argentine tango. The look you are seeing in today’s post was shot when I attended San the Francisco Tango Marathon last November. (I know, it sounds so long ago already!)
Usually during a tango festival or marathon I dance day and night, meet friends for meals, get a bit of sleep, and don’t get to do much of anything else. But this time, I was very happy I took a half-day break from dancing, and went to Bernal Heights park for a photo shoot.

BURGUNDY VEST FOR FALL

BURGUNDY VEST FOR FALL

Nov 23rd, 2017

Today is Thanksgiving, so I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation.
First of all, I am very thankful for my husband providing the support and love that our family needs to fully function and grow. Ever since I started blogging, I have photo or video shoots almost every week. He often plays the role of both daddy and mommy during this time. I am also very thankful for my two loving boys showering me with their “infinite” love (according to them that is “how big” :>).
I am thankful for my loving friends who have provided tremendous support toward my blog’s success.
Last but not least, a big thanks to you, my blog readers/fans! You have shared your time and engagement to challenge or inspire me for betterment during this blogging journey.

FASHIONXT | NIGHT 3

Nov 17th, 2017

Deciding on what to wear at a fashion show could be tricky. The pressure to piece something together that will leave an impression can be overwhelming. After the classic look for opening night, the casual look for night 2, my team and I decided I should go for a change.

FASHIONXT | NIGHT 2

FASHIONXT | NIGHT 2

Nov 3rd, 2017

As I was getting ready for second night of FashioNXT, I couldn’t stop myself from reliving the moments from the opening night. Even though I was sleep deprived from dancing till 2am, I still couldn’t wait to see what night 2 of FashioNXT was about to unfold.
By second night, I was a bit more relax with my look and my interaction with people. I decided to wear something lighter color and casual. I ended up with this Proenza Schouler white top and COMME des GARCONS grey shiny pant. I paired it with my recent favorite Cult Gaia bamboo bag.
