Who is the slave of fashion?

A lot of times, we try so hard to fit in clothes that might not work well with our bodies, which makes us the slave of fashion instead of rocking them like a boss. Not everyone is a runway model and it is important to know that we should find clothes that fit us. We tend to forget that we are the ones who wear the clothes instead of vice versa.

A Black Canvas

I always think that putting an outfit together is like painting and decorating. Therefore, first we have to come up with a theme, then we need a good canvas....

How to accentuate waist line?

So it has been a while since my fashion week post because my bestie was visiting from Hong Kong, and I was very caught up (Of course in a good way)! Anyway, the weather has dropped and I could feel that summer is leaving us. However, fall is a great season for fashion because the temperature allows you play with many different pieces.....

Silk Paisley Dress - Why Silk?

My mom bought me this MiuMiu dress few years ago, and I still think that this is such a timeless piece. Paisley pattern is always fun and casual to wear, but the fabric of the dress makes it look more elegant and dressy. I grew up in a family that my mom does textile business and my dad does garments business, which contribute to my sensitivity for fashion. Why silk? Keep reading!

Dreamy Green - A new shopping place..

Although I love designers' pieces, I also love small boutiques with great quality pieces. Many famous brands take advantage of their big names, and try to make more money by lowering the qualities or cutting corners. Therefore, it is always important for us to always check the quality before making a purchase. Keeping reading and find out my new favorite brand!

A Great Combination and some sharing..

In the previous post, I was talking about how to look taller and leaner. Besides pants, maxi skirt is actually another great piece to create a taller look. However, be careful when you pick a maxi skirt, if you have a longer torso, the maxi skirt has to start from your belly button or to be high waist. Otherwise, the maxi skirt will make you look even shorter than you actually are. For more tips? Click in and keep reading!

Style pink and shopping tips ;)

Some girls think that once they hit certain age, pink will no longer be the color that they should wear. However, I don't agree because its all about how you style your outfit with pink elements.
When you wear a pink dress with white polka dots, a pink headband and pink heels. Of course anyone would think that this is way too much, even little girls nowadays wouldn't wear that so often.
When I wear pink, I always try to match it with neutral colors, or mix it in a unisex outfit; that way, it won't look too girlish. For more shopping tips, keep on reading ;)

Blue and Black

I have heard from many people that blue and black don't go well together. However, I think that this fashion rule is meant to be broken as long as the two colors are styled in a right away.

The Chocolate Tone

TGIF! It has been a crazily hectic week because I started my new job at Cartier :) Learning about jewelries gives me a new perspective in fashion and styling, which also gives me new inspiration for my special project this year ;)
New York is finally warmer but still, its always good to bring a light coat because of the windy weather. Since I am really petite, I keep my outfit simple and try to avoid chunky fabrics. If it gets cold, I prefer layering instead of wearing something thick. At the same time, high-waist items and pointy heels are always my magical tools to make me look taller!

I was about to call this a nude tone, but the colors combination reminds me of milk chocolate instead ;) so, why not?

T for Trench Coat ;)

Wow! I cannot believe that spring is finally here because this winter in New York has been way too long. I feel so bad for not being to update my blog regularly but April is such a bad month.... This month is packed with meetings and interviews. Also, I will start a new job soon, yayyy!! Although I am excited to leave the current place, I will miss my team so much because the staffs are the sweetest!

Tweed Shorts

I love tweed fabrics because they always make the outfit look more polished. Its amazing how fabrics can change the entire look of the outfit. For example a cotton skater skirt vs a velvet skater skirt, denim shorts vs tweed shorts. Don't you think? These tweed shorts are great for fall/winter. Some people think that tweed shorts are still shorts, but the fact is, if the material is actually thick enough, they are a lot warmer than regular denim/cotton shorts.
In order to stay slim yet warm in the winter, I always pick warmer material instead of wearing layers of clothes, and here I am wearing cashmere sweater from Quinn

Winter Floral

Dark colors are always very popular when it comes to winter, especially in New York. However, since I love playing with more colors, I always try to find ways to add some vivid colors on my outfit. This floral embroidered skirt actually goes well with many colors, and here I match it with a black, lace sweater in order to make it more feminine. Meanwhile, the material of the skirt is thick enough to make the outfit look more wintery.
