Embroidery

Whether it is to stand out on the streets, or to feel youthful, embroidery and patches has become the hottest go-to for the younger generations today. Women’s dress shirts and denim bomber jackets are where embroideries or patches are most commonly seen.  And this sunny LA afternoon is no exception. In an earlier post, I’ve demonstrated the rebellious and trendy look of patches on denim bomber, and here I took a different spin on the trend, which touches deeper of the oriental roots. The origins of embroidery can be traced back to Ancient China, where people would sew and capture the beauty of nature (i.e. flowers) and animals (i.e. dragons) on garments as decorations. Because they’re often patched onto silk garments, it was considered a luxury and only the wealthy had the privilege. When I spotted this jacket from Zara, I was instantly drawn to that very combination nostalgically presented on a modern bomber.

Hello beautifuls! This post is dedicated to my love for watches! I love all things both stylish and functional, so watches definitely belong in this category. I own two MJ watches and I’ll show them off today! Since I never bothered to look up their official names, I named them myself 🙂 Mod Chic Brown Pretty In Pink Both these watches were bought from Watch Station. The store hold watches from many brands such as MJ, Armani, Fossil, MK, DKNY, etc. The best part about the shops is these amazing sales they host! Both of the watches you see here were priced under $70 each! The quality on the other hand are not exactly top notch, but I’m certainly not complaining since you get what you pay for! I bought these at two separate visits of the shop. I’ve always loved brown leather strap w/ clean watch face combo, so when I saw Mod Chic Brown I did not even blink before pulling out my wallet. 🙂 And Pretty In Pink? Which girl could resist? I thought it was a fabulous find for the summer …

Have you met Ted?

A couple weekends ago, I was shopping at Toronto Premium Outlet, and I found myself a new love – a brand that I absolutely adore – Ted Baker! Their style quickly reminded me of Kate Spade, but there is something about it that isn’t quite the same, and makes it more appealing to me.   I did score some lovelies while at the outlet store! Although if you haven’t really seen Ted Baker products, I’d highly recommend visiting their actual stores, they are gorgeous! I will do a separate post on Ted Baker at Toronto Eatons Centre, and show you what they are all about and why I’m so in love. This is what they call a Shopper Bag – Not your average handbags eh? Its retail price is about $50-$70, I got it on sale for $30! Girls, what are you waiting for?! It’s does not have any zipper/button and definitely can’t replace any of my purses, but It is so adorable I just want to carry it places! I currently use it to carry my lunches to …

Travel Diary – Cuba Beach Series I

Hello lovelies! After working for an entire year without break, I finally got an opportunity get away during Christmas time. The destination was – Cayacoco, Cuba. I stayed at the Memories Flaminco Resort, it was such a pleasant experience for the below reasons: 1. The people – Although most of them do not speak fluent English, but they are enthusiastic and very friendly! I felt extremely welcomed at a foreign land. 2. Nights that don’t sleep – I actually got a lot of sleep while I was there, but I remember for the late nights, there is always music and dancing accompanying. They had a 24/7 snack bar, did I mention it was open bar? 3. The scenery – Can’t say Cayococo is the most beautiful place in the world, but it is definitely the best place for vacay I’ve ever been to. (I really haven’t been out much 🙂 ) 4. The weather – Caught the winter of Cuba, which is about 26-28 degrees everyday. That was absolutely heaven when mixed with breezes from the ocean. …
