METALLIC ALL THE WAY
Jul 2nd, 2019
As much as I try to avoid being trendy (I know, it sounds really weird right?! I am a fashion blogger but I am trying not to be trendy……), I still undoubtedly end up wearing pieces that are in trend. Why? Because a trend you see currently is defined by collective efforts between fashion designers, color and textile experts & manufactures through the form of seasonal collections a couple of seasons ahead. As long as you buy currently, you end up following a trend that was defined before.
Regardless of if I am wearing a trendy piece or not, the key for me is to wear something that makes me look more beautiful and/or adds emotional empowerment (such as making me happy or increasing my confidence).

NEW OBSESSION: A NOD (TO) DESIGN JEWELRY
May 24th, 2019
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you probably already know that jewelry is MY THING. When it comes to jewelry, my motto is the more the merrier! A big fan of jewelry in general, I love the way it transforms the most casual outfits into polished and sophisticated ensembles and adds that perfect finishing touch to any night-time look!
The designer for all the jewelry I am featuring today is Wenjing Yang, a Portland-based designer. Wenjing was in apparel design industry for about a decade before she started designing jewelry. Making jewelry is what she loves to do now and it also offers her the freedom and balance she needs between working and taking care of her family. Every year A NOD (TO) DESIGN partners with a non-profit organization, donating 5% of every sale. This year it is teaming up with The Oregon Food Bank to make sure no one suffers from hunger. (more…)
