Boyfriend Jeans

The idea of any boyfriend fashion is that you can borrow styles from the opposite sex, which literally means stealing from your partner’s wardrobe 🙂 Why is it so popular? Simple – it’s trendy, it’s comfortable, and most importantly, it comes off as effortless. Being effortless isn’t just a style, it’s a statement, backed by an attitude. And looking good effortlessly is just sexy. Remember the hot fuss over getting into men’s dress-shirts and wear it like a dress? Well, boyfriend jeans is the new one from that family and it has been a favorite for many fashion industry insiders. I’d just provide two tips here in terms of styling boyfriend jeans, one is to always keep the top simple, and second is to roll up the cuffs at hems so you can bring attention to your lovely heels. ❤   What’s your favorite boyfriend piece?

Styling Adidas (Pt. II)

As mentioned in my previous post, I styled the same garments a little differently to bring about a different vibe! I un-tucked my tee and swapped the heels for these slippers to present you my stylish grocery shopping look….haha 🙂 I love everything about this outfit because I adore big loose tees, can’t stand wearing pants (they are just the most restricting thing), and not to mention my toes loved the freedom. Even in the absence of class and elegance, this is very much effortless chic and I love it as it suits me. One way to not look sloppy when wearing an oversized tee that’s clearly too big for you, is to fold up the sleeves 🙂 It’s all in the details! You’re awesome for checking out my post, have a nice day! ❤

OOTD: Too Sunny

This was one of those hot days I actually wished I didn’t step out the door.  The sun was in my eyes, I couldn’t not look at the camera for more than 2 seconds, and if you thought the hat helped…it didnt…I was also wearing these ombre hair extensions, but since they aren’t long enough, they just ended up looking like highlights, not to mention they add to the heat too, ughh. …Alright, that’s probably enough complaining in one post… 🙂 Now, some positivity! I’ve always wanted to try a dress that’s a T-shirt in disguise, like this one! It has a slit on the side, so there are many ways I could style for the bottom, such as a long  pencil skirt, a pair of shorts, or some long skinnys with heels. I decided to go with shorts because as I mentioned in my rant above, it was one hell of a hot day. The coolest part of this is that it’s actually a high-low tee! Thought it was pretty cute and found the concept …

Off The Shoulder

OK, everyone must know how much I adore suspenders by now – denim, long, short, leather straps, love’em all! (but maybe no clip-ons for me). This is a new one I purchased from Guess a while ago, I convinced myself that this was a must have because I don’t own suspenders in white… 🙂 Originally suspenders were worn because they were functional – fabric or leather straps worn over the shoulders to hold up pants. But gradually they were being worn for looks and have been diligently shifting in and out of fashion. I remember seeing old pictures of my mom wearing suspenders before my time, and me thinking that although cute, they were just WAY too yesterday and old fashioned. And look at me now… who could predict? 🙂 the runways possibly… In my previous looks I consistently wore Tees with my suspenders, this time I decided to change that up by going from preppy to flirty 😉 The other highlight has got to be the Zooshoo heels, I love how lengthy they make my legs look alongside the comfort and ease to walk in! 🙂

Tie A Knot

Do you ever stare at your closet and find yourself at a lack of choices? And it certainly isn’t from a shortage of clothes, but rather you just can’t find what you need for who you want to be today! It happens to me only all. the. time. But, I am a firm believer of affordable fashion – splurging should only happen on items that I really like, and not to satisfy my need for more choices. This was one of those days, and having said the above – the alternative to buying new pieces, is of course to work with the existing! I’m not good with my needles and yarns, but I’m all up for simpler adjustments involving scissors, and ….tying knots! 🙂 This blue dress-shirt is actually something I wear for work typically under a blazer, and certainly not something I’d consider wearing casually over weekends. I decided to change things up and turned it into a part of this night-out look. It brings a totally different feeling, hence is now a new addition to my wardrobe at no cost! I wore these cute polka dot wedges because I felt …

Céline Favorites

I present you my current obsession – Céline’s Luggate Tote Mini! I’ve always had a lack of black purses due to my thinking that black bags often hide the detailing of the designs. But if I were to buy any black bag, this would absolutely be it! ❤ The Luggate Tote series came out in 2010, but it didn’t catch the public’s eyes until it was spotted on arms of celebrities. Once it became popular, of course it then became a more exclusive choice and grew considerably in price. Since then, certain styles have been discontinued (i.e. Medium and Shoulder size), but more styles and color combinations have been added to the line. As intimidating as the price tag may seem, it is a stylish and durable product with refined craftsmanship, a worthwhile investment you can proudly add to your designer collections. As much as I love big bags, I believe the Mini size would suffice. But – don’t judge by what it sounds like, it isn’t that “mini” and a size Medium is actually so big! It also comes in smaller scales called …

Symmetric Allures

So… I found this lovely garment at H&M on sale, my god it was such a steal! ❤ As much as I love trendy items and looks, I absolutely adore unique pieces that aren’t commonly found on the streets. You’ve see long body-con dresses, but the fact that this one is loosely fitted actually makes all the difference. I did not over engineer my accessories with this one, just because I felt that the dress should get all the attention it deserves. I threw in the color brown for bracelet and bag since it nicely compliments the ensemble. I stuck with my golden strap sandals for this look because I just can’t get enough of them! 🙂 Rather than calling this a cotton maxi, it’s really more of an..ultra long shirt 🙂 Although it’s dark colored, it is thin, light and absorptive in material. So it’s fitting for those hot windy summer days!   On a side note I actually really enjoyed taking the shoot at this place! It’s behind a local high school, so it’s completely empty over the weekends! …

Let It Loose

I love dressing up to look refined and pretty 🙂 but even then I have my lazy days. This was one of those days! I wanted to wear simple, comfortable/loose clothing, and enjoy the nice weather in nothing but comfort. As much as I love to embrace natural and effortless looks, I’ll still never abandon style. Comfort and style definitely aren’t substitutes and are complementary when matched and accessorized correctly. The tee I’m wearing is shapeless and very thin in material, so I matched it with a tight fitting maxi skirt which provides a shape. The look overall is very lazy, but I stacked my boho bracelets to accessorize – they vary in size & patterns and look randomized, contributing to this “effortless” look, while embracing the boho feel. Hah, don’t you just love this “Be Pretty” message? As if it’s so easy 😛 I got this at the plus section of Forever21! I wear a small or XSmall most of the time, but I picked this up when I was looking for a long loose tee and going to the + section seemed like a good …

Hints of Gold – Part II

Hello beautifuls! As I mentioned in my previous post Hints of Gold Part I, this is the Part II of the look! I separated one shoot into two posts because of big difference in scenery and felt that both were deserving of their own post! This is taken at the park nearby my house, I’m grateful to have this piece of paradise close by. It has a small scaled beach, and is very popular during the summer time! Not to mention whenever it’s holidays, this becomes a scene for the dazzling fireworks.     I believe in fairy tales and all things magical 🙂 I remember a couple years back I came here to this very beach to watch shooting stars and make wishes. Although it was summer time but still freezing cold since it’s near the water and the stars were timed to appear around 1-2 a.m. I’d say it was a good use of time because I did something I’ve always wanted to do. I caught maybe 2-3 stars, and made wishes while not worrying about whether they’ll come true. …
