FALL DENIM +A-LINE SKIRT
Oct 31st, 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.
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.
A trench coat is a key wardrobe piece that enhances your sophistication and elegance. Now you have a big opportunity to complete a fall look that can also be used for winter in not-so-cold Portland. Join us at Portland Moule Sat Nov 5th 2016 for a Trench Coat fashion evening!
I am going to share my thoughts on versatile looks with trench coats.

Though Portland is heading into Fall rainy season, a sunny day provides a sun shower and an opportunity to hunt for one of our locally famous food trucks.
Many in the fashion industry suggest less white once Fall starts, or that white is not ideal for Winter…etc. For me, B & W is classy all year with a good cut to match the occasion or my mood. The Balenciaga top was purchased at the same time as the lace set from “Lace, Every woman’s dream“. I tend to shop while I am in an international city like Shanghai to take advantage of it. : )
When I see someone wearing gorgeous lace clothing, I think “WOW, she is so elegant!” However, the subtle doubt creeps in: “I never look nice in lace”. Lace has always a dream for me and today can be for you!
NEVER SAY NEVER! Today I feature Sandro Paris’s Lace set: a cropped lace top and matching lace pencil skirt with a slit on the side. I fell in love with it at first sight and trying it on further confirmed it was a perfect style and cut for me!
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.
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!
My husband is a very private person. He is not any social network. He does not like me publish any picture of him or our sons over the internet. However, in this post you will see a few picture of him. I just simply can’t write a blog about our 10 years anniversary without a picture of him!
To me, it is very important to make every special days special! Life with two children could be very busy and hectic. The worst thing I want to see is I don’t have any special memory when I am too old to do anything ! Hence, I always make efforts to make a special day memorable. Luckily, my husband always supports me!
Reading has absolutely became a luxury for me ever since I had children. If I remember correctly, I only finished reading one book “Snow Flower and Secret Fan” by Lisa Lee in the last 4 years. Then I stayed in a relaxing Thai beach villa which belongs to YourKohSamuiVillas. : )
It was a good day to visit Powell’s book store, little bit of drizzling rain off and on. It was a chilly day so I wore a long sleeve top. I paired it with pleated skirt I got when I was in Rome last year. The black top has a cut open on the back. It really helps showing off the skirt!
Like everything else in the world, Style has its own rules. To dress stylishly, you need to understand these rules, practice them, excel and then perhaps break them.

A very dear friend from San Fransisco visited me. We became friends before we even met each other in person. : ) I invited her to join two of my photo sessions and she will appear in my blog as guest appearance. P.S, She herself is a fashionista!
When weather is nice in Portland, nothing compares to taking a walk at downtown waterfront in the dawn time. Mountains in the far, clear blue sky with floating clouds, multiple bridges crossing over willamette river, green grass covering the ground…. all of these are calling to wear a bright color block.
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:
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…)
