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.
A BETTER YOU FOR 2019
Jan 4th, 2019
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.

I was listening to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” as I was cooking Christmas Eve dinner, when a crazy idea came to my mind… I decided to wrap myself in left-over gift wrapping papers and turn myself into a giant Christmas present!!

Nov 28th, 2018
Today, I got ready to go to my friend’s film showing in the Pearl and was feeling adventurous. I wanted to spice things up a bit. So, I found a recent Adidas Jump Suit that I bought and thought it would give me the perfect opportunity to lighten things up and be playful.
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.
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.
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
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.
