2017


How is 2017 treating you?

The new year has been quite tumultuous for me so far, but I am still looking forward. I love the tremendous amount of support I receive from my followers— thank you for your touching words! 
I hope we all find what we are searching for this year. 

For my first look of 2017, I wanted to show a bit more of my casual side.
I love being comfortable in the clothes I wear and I love outfits that look effortless. It’s less about your outfit screaming “look at me” and more about your comfort and individuality. I haven’t been about the trends for a while now. I’m enjoying the timeless side to fashion with bits of personal flair here and there. What does your casual side look like?


What I’m Wearing:

NYE

For me, 2016 was the year to go out, to explore, and to figure out who I really was. It wasn’t as simple as that, but this year brought me a lot of fortune, misfortune, and everything in between. 

Are you guys ready for 2017? I think we’re all a little in denial every time the new year comes around. We trace our steps back to what we did the past year, and we ponder upon them. This past year we have grown, we know more than we did last year, and we’re one step closer to becoming our true selves. We all evolve and change— its a process, and it never stops. 

I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions— it’s not an excuse for a fresh start or a clean slate. Instead, it is a reminder to keep maturing and to keep persevering. It’s time for the motivation to kick in! No slacking allowed!
We can achieve anything if we set our minds to it. Let’s make 2017 even better than 2016.

Faux Winter

It’s been a faux winter here in Los Angeles…but that’s nothing new. I’m a little bummed that this year’s winter only just kicked in, as it will be gone before we know it. I’m laughing a little because everyone was freezing at the salon today, and the thermostat read 68 degrees. You non-angelenos must hate us, haha. 

This outfit set is kind of the perfect winter outfit for LA. It’s breathable, edgy, and still keeps you warm for those “colder” days.
If you don’t live in LA weather, slap on a coat and you’re good to go! 

Let’s talk a little about the brand! Nün Bangkok is that edgy, minimal, timeless brand that you can never say no to. I’ve loved every one of their collections to date, and I still rock my picks from years ago. 

I promise to bring more updates to the blog! Happy Holidays, babes!

After School She(nyan)igans



Since I've gone back to school, things seem to have changed tremendously. The world is not the same it was two years ago, and apparently, neither is school. It's the "after school shenyanigans" that keep me sane and from feeling like I'm a slave to school. Remember to keep your moods lifted; Don't drown in your work. Give yourself some fun every chance you can get-- or things will get ugly!

Brand Feature: IIII CLOTHING (Four Eyes) 

Four Eyes Clothing is essentially the cool nerds club. You can't sit with us. Four Eyes mixes anime culture with a hentai based style concept. Basically, they're a fusion of cute, lewd, and bad ass.

Fall Greys


Us Angelenos are finally welcoming in the new fall season. Up until last week, we were still sunbathing in our usual 80 degree weather. It’s finally here! — the brisk air, the hot teas, the fall coats. Fall is my perfect weather. I have a thing for stepping on dead, crunchy leaves and waking up to cloudy, overcast skies. 


I’m falling in love with grey.
For my coordinate, I styled an all grey look with black accessories. 
It just so happens that all the blacks in my look include some kind of buckle. 
I do have a thing for matching pieces when I plan out my outfits, and I unconsciously do this for most of my looks.
If you’re a fan of a minimal or timeless look, be sure to add some accessories or details that will help your outfit pop in the right areas. I’m not saying go overboard, I’m saying less is more. Since the weather isn’t super cold yet, I can afford to show some skin if I have a light sweater on. To me, the color grey reminds me of fall weather. Maybe the gloomy grey skies are the reason why I correlate the two together, but either way the color grey is staying in my fall wardrobe. 


What I’m Wearing: 


Hush Up Knit Sweater - Delphine the Label 
Nancy Skirt - Deandri
Bad Kitty Backpack - Isabelle Batz
Chunky Flats - Zaful
Restrained Choker - Delphine the Label

If the shoe fits...

By some miracle, I found three pairs of shoes on one website that fit my style aesthetic. After trying them out for a week, I decided it was time to share these beauties with the world. Shoes can take you places -- both literally and figuratively. Don't give up on finding your perfect pair!

Pair 1: The everyday shoe.

You can probably wear this to any occasion. May it be formal, casual, business, party wear... am I missing something? This pair is timeless, and I'm a huge fan of anything that can be worn several times without being realized. I'm loving the cut-out style borrowed from the classic loafer, with an accented block heel for some "oomph". In my opinion, these are perfect to sport with some white socks.

Pair 2:  The lazy, yet cute sandal.

We all have those days we wish we could just slip on some slides or toms. These sandals are great for manipulation. Aka, trick people into thinking you're trying when in reality, you're comfy af. These sandals are so. perfect. I can't get over the interestingly shaped pink heel and toe wrapped portion of the sandal. The heels definitely remind me of legos, which makes the shoe playful and cute yet edgy, but also different from any usual sandal.

Pair 3: The fairy princess shoe.

When you want to conjure your inner fairy princess, these are the perfect pair of shoes to complement the mood. I mean, just look at them. Need I say more? Never in my life would I have thought I would come across such beautiful shoes for an affordable price. These are ballerina/forest fairy fusion at its finest.

About the store:

ZAFUL

Zaful is an online store for women that carries just about everything we search for on a clothing site. While their selection is huge, I'd suggest browsing their shoe selections based on my experience. I initially started browsing Zaful looking for clothes. I digressed as I usually do, and came across these three amazing pairs of shoes. I'd like to add that all three of these are great in quality, and comfortable to wear. I'm amazed that quality isn't compromised for the price-- something that is truly hard to find. I 100% recommend these to anyone who is thinking of purchasing. I've tested them and have had no problems with comfort or quality. I think we can all agree that they all look 100% like the product photos on the website, so trusting this website is definitely no issue!

If you're a fan of these 3 pairs, take a look at my other favorites from their site!
I hope to be able to do another shoe review from this particular website, soon!
