WEDNESDAY BLUE

WEDNESDAY BLUE

Apr 5th, 2017

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.

Spring is finally here!! When the sun comes out in Portland, the city comes alive! My photographer and I decided to take a short trip out of the city to McMenamins Edgefield.
I finally felt warm enough to wear a dress without tights or stockings to showcase  a knit dress from THREE FLOOR.  Apart from classic B & W, I also love the details of this dress: the an open-weave neckline, asymmetrical details, fringe and uneven hem.  Since the dress has a lot of volume, apple or pear shaped bodies may want to think twice.  (more…)

Megan is a chiropractor and loves the work she does. She practices and owns Center for Chiropractic & Pain Rehabilitation in NE Portland. On the side, she runs a wine business that exports Oregon and Washington wines abroad. Megan’s overall dressing style is pretty casual and functional and enjoys dressing up for special occasions.
Megan is a very good friend of mine, in fact, she and I were born exact same day, same month & same year. How coincidental is that, right!? We see each other often so I have a very good understanding of her dressing style and knew exactly what to do to enhance her look. (more…)

Although  I am geared up for spring looks, Portland’s recent March snow inspired another winter look today. : )
NW 23rd ave, Nobhill area,  has always been a favorite street for a stroll.  Somehow the street puts me in the mood for a European look to match the atmosphere. Today, I was going for a little French flair as you already knew. : ) (more…)

We love the teachers there so much! They are so attentive and loving beyond their excellent educational competency. Hongbao gala is the school’s big fund raising event, so we go every year. Yes, the cute kiddo in below picture is my lovely son. : ). (more…)

3 ESSENTIAL BAGS

3 ESSENTIAL BAGS

A dear tango friend challenged me to identify “3 essential bags”. I gladly accepted her challenge and am happy now hear your thoughts about this post.  What a great idea! Hopefully this will delight my friend and, all of you, my dear readers.
The 3 essential bags I suggest:
1. A tote bag:
As an example, this blue Ferragamo tote bag is one of my favorite totes.  Generally, I prefer single use bag but since this strap is removable so I am fine with it. After all, you get to use the bag in two different ways.  A tote serves many occasions: business meetings, conferences, everyday go-to-work bag…etc. The key for you is to watch the ratio between the tote size and your body size for good visuals.
Below are three tote bags I like at different price points. (Images are clickable.)

italian-silk-maxi-dress-over-black-sweater-2297I don’t know about you, but I have been getting a bit bored with my typical winter look–A cute, comfy sweater over jeans or miniskirt with a coat, or a sweater dress with over-the-knee boots with coat. Those were my typical winter looks and I was dying for a change.
In preparation for meeting a friend downtown at Kimpton Vintage Hotel, I spotted this silk maxi dress.  Some may recall from my 10-year anniversary celebration party (as seen in the below picture).  With spring is approaching, adding a bit of “flowy-ness” to welcome spring seemed appropriate to get out of the winter funk!  Thus, an experiment with silk maxi dress over a black  sweater with grey wool capri pant.

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…)

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE I || FOR HER

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE I || FOR HER

Hello, everyone! I hope your week is going well so far. As I am continuously being spoiled by sunshine and beach here in Big Island Hawaii, today is also my birthday! A yummy brunch at a local cafe, a massage to relax the sore muscle from carrying Ronen, my big younger son, and a stylish dinner at steakhouse restaurant made it a perfect birthday celebration with just families!
Even though I am in vacation, I can’t stopped thinking about what I to write next. One day I was out shopping for holiday gifts for families in the King’s shop, I realized how wonderful it would be if there was a holiday gift guide. So there it is, a holiday gift guide I– for her, for all of you. Hopefully this could be a bit of help to you!  I promise there will also be a holiday gift guide for him in next post!

$0-$50

Technically I should have “plenty” of time to enjoy a cup of coffee at ease in a café.  Well, like most of you, my day gets filled with pursuits and responsibilities like two young boys, my high standard for house organization/tidiness, and my various creative outlets…. etc…   So I made an extra effort to have a nice café day.
