POLKA DOTS | MAKING A COMEBACK
May 8th, 2018
When I was 16 years old, Polka dots were everything! My mom would wear polka dots every other day and my dad wore polka doted ties to every major occasion. I was sick of them! I never wanted to see them ever again. Even when my aunt bought me a very expensive polka dot dress for my birthday, I told her to return it and get me something else. It wasn’t until I turned 25, when polka dolts came back in style, and I finally realized the elegance of the pattern. (more…)

As many of you now know, I have an amazingly talented blog photographer and business partner – Bassel. He and I often end up spending countless hours creating content for Style Right.

The video shoot took about 6 hours and let me tell you, the process was hilarious and the results are shocking! You don’t want to miss the video below: (more…)

May 2nd, 2018
Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get. Meeting Ahmed Shihab Eldin in DC was just that – an insightful, unique, and fun surprise. My business partner Bassel happened to find out that Ahmed was also in DC while we were there for a Tango event. We decided to reach out to him with no hope of getting a reply. Against all odds, time and travel constrains, and exchanging of wrong numbers, we managed to still meet with Ahmed and had a good time doing so. It was fate. (more…)

LONDON FASHION WEEK | FASHION FOR CONSERVATION
Mar 15th, 2018
Those of you who have read my previous post, know that I attended London Fashion Week a couple of weeks ago. London is my favorite city in Europe because of its food, fashion scene, and breathtaking architecture — not to mention I was there for Fashion Week, which adds another level of euphoria. I felt that all the cells of my body were awakened the moment I landed and couldn’t wait to get a glimpse and this season’s upcoming fashion trends.
Fashion for Conservation (FFC) was the first show I went to. It was founded by three women determined to make a positive impact on the world through conservation-inspired couture. They combined their talents and passions to create fashion campaigns that educate consumers on animals and ecosystems, while donating funds to wildlife groups — all while doing it in fashion (pun intended).

Being able to go to London Fashion Week (LFW) has been a dream of mine. It is one of the goals I set when I first started Style Right.

However, I always believed that hard work and perseverance, no matter the obstacles, would always pay off – and it did for me.

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!
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…)

A few days ago, I realized my pant size dropped from 28 to 27. This was NEWS to me! I have worn jean size 28 girl my entire adult life. The surprise is because I didn’t consciously work on losing weight or downsizing. That led me to write a post about workout routines.
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.
