CHANEL, YOU FINALLY GOT ME!
Apr 10th, 2017
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”!

Spring in Portland presents a challenge to dress correctly with ever changing weather, even on the same day. Yet, I am so HAPPY the long cold winter is finally over! Spring is calling for colors and this electric blue down jacket became my first choice for the day. The light blue coat wasn’t planned in preparation for today’s look; but, the suddenly chilly windy day pushed its way in.
GIRL’S NIGHT OUT
JAN 26TH, 2016
I can’t believe it has been so long since my last post. I thought I was just taking a holiday break. But then it was just one episode after another……I am happy now I am back and ready to reconnect with all of you again!!
As a styling blogger , one thing that I am very conscious about is whether my readers/fans will get tired of seeing me all the time. I tend to make efforts to have some other faces every once a while to give you a break. Some of the faces you saw in the past are my clients who worked with me for styling, some are just friends, some are Style Right team members. In today’s post, I went out for a girl’s night with 3 of my girl friends. (more…)
IN THE TRENCH COAT
Oct 22nd, 2016
Happy Monday to everyone!! I know Monday is usually not the happiest day of the week for most people. Hopefully this post gives you a quick break from your busy Monday schedule. : )
Today, I am introducing another trench coat look. Yes, I am definitely in the mood for trench coat these days so I named this post “In the trench coat”. 🙂 In my last post, I shared a look with a burberry trench coat paired with a dress. This time, I paired a traditional gray trench coat with a casual shirt and wool capri pants.
FALL ESSENTIAL: TRENCH COAT
Oct 19th, 2016
I am a big fan of trench coats, partly because they are very giving for various body types. A trench coat is a necessary component of your wardrobe for Fall and extends its usage further for rainy winter weather locations like the west coast in the US.
The one pictured in today’s post was purchased almost 4 years and has been absolutely my all time favorite. I especially like the contrast between black double breast buttons and the mustard color. Wearing it open with the belt loosely tied in the back, or completely buttoned up can be flattering and cool-looking. Plus, trench coat durability makes the investment worthwhile since they can last many years.

JUMPSUIT IS THE THING
Sep 16th, 2016
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.
A TRIP TO PERU
Aug 31st, 2016
This is not me of course. : ) Her name is Carina and she is part of my blog team. Recently she and my photographer took a trip to Peru together. I dream to go one day after seeing all the breath-taking pictures!

Any of you noticed those words in the banner of my website : Reuse, Revive, Reconstruct, Rearrange, Recycle? I don’t think I have ever explained why they were chosen or matters to my styling blog.
Those are the words chosen to reflect my overall styling philosophy:
- Reuse: Sometimes we need buy certain thing just to match with one particular outfit. We forget about it after this outfit. Learn to build this habit of reusing things you obtained for one single purpose.
- Revive: Don’t any of you have this experience : you remembered an outfit from a movie or a book from way back. It sticked around in your head for a long time because you liked it so much. The idea of revive is to able to revoke something from the past. Present a past style you like by adding your personal touch to it.
LINEN JACKET AND JEAN
June 16, 2016
Portland weather has been having some dramatic changes over the last couple of weeks. It was over 90 the wk before and this wk is down to 50-60’s. I had to take out couple pieces of clothes I had put away including this grey jacket. (more…)

I visited Portland Art Museum about a wk ago. I wore my new prescription glasses in order to see arts well. I often feel like a sponge (ready to observe and get educated) when I either go to museums or universities. For that reason, I tend to dress more casual, more of a “Studious type” but not boring look when I go to those places.
Pink is usually not my cup of tea. When I saw this pink vest at “Frances May” local store , I fell in love as soon as I tried it on! The style of this vest matches with my style. Even pink isn’t really my thing but I decided to give it try. Besides, wearing pink in spring time is like having a date with your favorite person! I would have worn a sleeveless white shirt underneath but I went with longer sleeve because it was a bit chilly. (more…)
CASUAL BLACK AND WHITE
Last post I talked about the reason why I have passion for styling. Today I want to share a little bit about my styling philosophy.
But before that, we have to look at two concepts first: fashion & style.
- Fashion: a popular way of dressing during a particular time or among a particular group of people (by Merrian-webster definition)
- Style: a particular way in which something is done, created, or performed(by Merrian-webster definition)
As you can see from the definition, fashion will fade when certain way of dressing is no longer popular. However, style is something you build overtime and people tend to stick with it. That is not saying someone’s style never changes. This is exactly the reason I don’t call my blog Fashion blog but instead Styling blog. : )
