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, DAY 2: FEELING WOMANLY IN DRESS

Oct 19th, 2018

As much as I wanted to look cool and have a different outfit for all of the runway shows, I decided to just wear a simple body-con dress on the second day of NYFW. I guess that was one of those days I didn’t want to wear something unique just to be different. Instead, I felt like showing off my body and being elegant. This dress is by a brand called “AIRFIELD“. I shared a story about my encounter with this brand in the previous unboxing video. Check it out if you are interested.

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.

NYFW: DAY 1 POWER SUIT

NYFW: DAY 1 POWER SUIT

Sep 25th, 2018

“Putting on formal clothes makes us feel powerful,” which was exactly how I felt when I wore this suit set to NYFW. The ‘power suit’ has become more than a trend nowadays; it is a movement. A woman in a suit to me shows strength, determination, and fearlessness. Who wouldn’t want to be part of this style movement?!

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

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.

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.

I am very excited to share this awesome fabric and cool dress with you! (more…)
