VINCE SATIN BLOUSE

VINCE SATIN BLOUSE

May 27th, 2017

Hello everyone! Happy weekend and I hope you have something special planned for the long memorial weekend. I am writing this post on the plane on my way to China Shanghai. I will be posting fun things I see in Shanghai on Instagram, to follow CLICKING HERE.
When I acquire a new piece of clothing, I often times will try it out with different things from my closet to see what works or how many different looks I can create. To me, it is almost more fun than going shopping. Because it is a creative, rewarding and challenging process, which I truly enjoy.

RIDE OR DIE MAKEUP 2017

RIDE OR DIE MAKEUP 2017

May 23rd, 2017

I am super excited to share with you my first beauty product post!
I am going to show you what my “ride or die” makeup items are for 2017. What is “ride or die” you ask? If you could take to a desert island only ONE makeup item from each category (foundation, blush, mascara, lip products, etc.), which would you choose?

FOUNDATION:  Ever since I started this fashion blog, I have been paying extra attention on makeup products that are ideal for photos. You can imagine why : ) I have been happy with the Givenchy Photo’ Perfexion Fluid Foundation from Sephora. It is easy to apply, has light coverage with SFP 20, and your skin looks natural & luminous after application. More importantly, it works well with all lightings!

CHLOE TOP

CHLOE TOP

May 15th, 2017

I hope all you beautiful moms out there had just as perfect a day as I did.  Hubby got me flowers. Boys made bracelets from school and gave me a necklace (of course, we all know who actually got it!). We went out for a nice mother’s day brunch, and to top it all off I got to play tennis with my tango friends for almost two and a half hours! I have probably never mentioned before, but I love to play many sports. Tennis is one of my favorites。

BLACK FOR SPRING? YES!

Apr 27th, 2017

Spring time in Portland could be tricky but also kind of fun in terms of what to wear because of weather variances from day to day. On the street, you will see people wearing a t-shirt, a jacket or sweater, and even a winter coat. The upside of that is you can choose from your entire closet to create outfits.
People often put black color clothes away when it comes to spring. For me, wearing black in spring is perfectly fine as long as you find ways to light it up or add colors. In my outfit today, I used a colorful scarf to add vibrance to the overall look.

NEUTRALS WITH CHERRY BLOSSOMS IN DC

NEUTRALS WITH CHERRY BLOSSOMS IN DC

Apr 18th, 2017

Being a mom, I don’t get to travel much. But I usually manage to get at least one trip every year to get some “JUST ME” time. This year, I decided to chase the cherry blossoms in DC and share them with you in this post!

My photographer and I were there in the last weekend of March. The blossom was already at the tail end of it, but the flowers still looked very delicate and poetic!
I purposely arranged a natural look so I don’t detract from the beauty of the blossoms. Besides, wearing neutrals is always a good idea with all the colors that spring brings us.  (more…)

CHANEL, YOU FINALLY GOT ME!

CHANEL, YOU FINALLY GOT ME!

Apr 10th, 2017

You may already know my  philosophy against chasing fashion.  I do not drive my purchase decisions based on what is “IN” today.  For me, style should expresses your personality as well as inner essence rather than being “IN”!

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…)
