Outfits

Hey everyone! I wore this outfit below to a Yelp elite event few weekends back at Luke’s Lobster where they were introducing their winter menu (lobster grilled cheese and lobster mac and cheese among others) to us yelpers. We had a sample of the lobster grilled cheese along with shrimp roll and clam chowder and […]

Happy Wednesday and three more days till I head to NOLA for some foodie fun. I cannot wait! I’ve been wanting to go down there for a long while but things always came up. This time, I’m doing a short weekend trip to hit all the foodie places on my yelp bookmarked list, so be […]

As you all know via twitter and my last tutorial post, I had to convince hubby a bit to go watch Twilight’s Breaking Dawn with me yesterday. Hubby finally gave in Friday night, but under one condition – for me to cook him lunch and more specifically congee and chow fun – lol. So I […]

Hello everyone! I hope my East Coast friends are keeping warm from blizzard Jonas. I stayed in the entire time Friday evening through Saturday evening and had to grudgingly get out to shovel my car out. Not what I had in mind to spend my weekend, that’s for sure. At least, we had a day […]

Happy 4th! I hope you’ve been enjoying the holiday weekend with lots of bbq-ing, watermelon eating and water activity fun. Being near the DC metro area, I think we get the best fireworks display around but I always tend to forgo that every year as to not deal with the huge tourist crowd mess around […]

Hello everyone! Here is my third Petite Fashion Challenge with this month’s host being Lauren from Petite on a Penny, which I was more than happy to enter. I absolutely love dressing up but what girl wouldn’t. 😉 This month’s challenge was to style a summer wedding outfit for less than $100 (or exclude shoes […]

Hello everyone! I’m loving the warmer temps that we’ve been getting here and there and even felt like summer at one point. However, that was a bit short-lived which is typical of spring weather around here. Here’s another winter to spring transition outfit for you which is so simple and so casual that will keep […]

Hello all!! Wow, has it been a year. I’m actually pretty proud that I was able to keep up with the blog this past year or so, and consistently I might add. With a full-time job during the day and my photography business on weekends, it was definitely challenging, but glad I kept up with […]

Hello and happy Tuesday! I’m thankful to be living in the DC area where I can still hold onto summer just a little bit longer. It could be global warming, but the cold haven’t been setting in until mid-November and in some years, we had warmth up until mid-December. Although I love the summer heat […]

Hello everyone and happy Monday! At least Monday started out with sunshine even though it will be ending with rain. I’ve been so tired of rain, rain, rain but fingers crossed that today will be the end of it. My weekend was crazy busy and went way too quickly. The weekend started off early with […]

Happy Halloween everyone! If you have missed my Halloween tutorial collab with KL transforming into my favorite Disney prince Ariel, feel free to check it out. Lately, I’ve been thinking about Paris a lot and since I’ll be heading down to Houston tonight, KL is taking me to a section of San Antonio that reminds […]

Hey everyone! Boy, have I been feeling the winter chill lately and all I wanted to do was just stay at home and hibernate. And since H&M was having a big sale recently, I couldn’t help but stock up on sweaters like the one below–thick, soft and comfy. Perfect item to ward off the cold.

Happy Columbus Day! Unfortunately I haven’t had that day off in so many years, but no major traffic going into work today, so there’s my silver lining. For today’s outfit post, here’s playing with bumblebee colors for ya. I’ve been loving the ease and simplicity of wearing a shift dress and just tack on accessories […]

Hey all! Back in August when I attended Neiman Marcus’ event showcasing season’s favorites, I’ve been wanting to pair something black & blue together. I don’t know about you, but to me, fashion is subjective and has allowed me to experiment with colors that I never thought to pair together or mixing various prints. What […]

Hello all! With the temperature rising past 90’s for the weekend, I needed something cool and fun to represent summer. And lately, I’ve been really getting into more prints and I love anything floral, so naturally learned towards these floral print slim pants from ASOS. I paired the floral pants with a minty blouse from, […]

Hey everyone! I love sweater dresses and I just realized that I love pairing them with hunter green as seen here. ;P What can I say—it’s the easiest thing to put on when you’re in a rush to get out of the house.

Hello hello! I hope everyone is having a great Christmas so far. It was great spending time with the family and got to see my awesome nephew. Only thing that was missing was snow. Ah well, there’s always another year. =) For my outfit today, I wanted to keep it casual and comfy, but still […]

Hello everyone! I love a good cherry red for autumn and this skirt has been one that I bring back every season also seen here and here. This look, however, has a little bit of a Parisian flare–it could be the striped off-shoulder top that gives it that vibe. Either way, it’s a fun outfit […]

Hello hello! Only a few more days till I am off to Philly for a 4-day weekend. I am so ready to see the family and also give my nephew a huge hug when I see him. Also, it’s the time of year where you will be invited to holiday parties, so here’s a fun […]

If you can’t tell already from twitter, I am totally rooting for Spring to arrive sooner than later! FYI: 4 days till DST & 13 days till Spring! So I was in a Spring mood this past weekend and decided to show it in my outfit. Bright colors always remind me of spring and I […]

Hey everyone! Now that spring has fully arrived, my allergies are running amok and I haven’t been functioning on a full night’s sleep yet. They’ve been waking me up either early or middle of the night and then I’m left sleepy for the rest of the day. No bueno. Anyway, spring has definitely brought on […]

Hey everyone! I can’t believe it’s September already and you know what that means? NYFW starts today–very exciting! I plan to drive up tomorrow and stay till Sunday rooming with partner in crime, KL. Can’t wait to see what kinds of trouble we can get ourselves in. Of course, there’ll be plenty of foodie hopping […]

Happy New Year, everyone!! Wow, can’t believe 2013 is over already. We went over to my friend’s, Linda’s, place for last minute potluck gathering to ring in the new year. Feel free to check out my instagram to see the spread. Everything was so delicious–a great way to start 2014, don’t you think? Anyways, I […]

Hello everyone! I’m interrupting my LA posts to bring you this cherry blossom inspired OOTD and if you’re in the DMV (DC, MD, VA) area, run (don’t walk) to the nearest park and soak in some of these blossom beauties. These delicate flowers bloom even amidst cold spring temps to only stay blooming for such […]

Hey all! Now for the last day in Cancun, we just wanted to do absolutely nothing, but chill at the resort. I even got caught up with some photo work while I was at the pool–an ideal working environment if you ask me. So for my outfit, I kept it pretty simple with this shift […]

Hello all! For this outfit post, I wanted to play with black and white again–one of the 2015 spring trends. For the fun of it, I wanted to add some color in another way and this bridge did the trick. As you can see, when using monotone colors, it’s fun to create interest in your […]

Happy Wednesday! I’m sure everyone has heard by now that there is a major snowstorm coming towards the East Coast Friday noon through Saturday evening. I haven’t been to the stores yet, but apparently, chaos already started early in prep for the storm. Guess I know what my plans are for the weekend: staying in […]

Hello hello everyone! Who’s all enjoying their 4th of July day off? It’s kinda weird that it falls in the middle of the week, but can’t complain. Believe it or not, I’ve had this outfit planned for several weeks since I got the skirt and the colors were appropriate today to save it for the […]

The one thing that I have been stocking up for the past year and even picked up two more this fall were blanket scarves. I have no shortage of them currently and have been interchanging them according to my mood. When I first started wearing them, however, they took some time to get used to […]

Hey everyone! As you know Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so I wanted to pick out a few of my favorite items that I’ve been browsing around online.

Hello hello. I can’t tell you how much I love this skirt and was able to take it out over the weekend for a night in DC. Not only do I love the print (hello, leopard), having pockets on any skirt or dress is a done deal for me. Many thanks to Cydia for tracking […]

Hello all! As you know, we spent most of Chicago exploring the city and wanted to showcase some of the areas we visited. I wanted an outfit that was light in layers but yet still will keep me warm when the temp dips low at night. Also what better way to explore the city but […]

Hello everyone! Here’s a quick OOTD post for ya. I thought it was appropriate to wear this bunny print blouse from H&M for Easter Sunday. Had the weather been warmer all day minus the winds, I would’ve continue to wear these lace shorts, but thought it was still cute to pair the two together.

Hey everyone! While in NYC for NYFW, I stayed with KL and some of you may know her as SecretLifeofaBioNerd on Youtube. After catching the Jill Stuart show and trekking all over NYC for some mussels, but eventually settled on lobster roll at Luke’s, I wanted to capture some photos of her outfit. By the […]

Up until recently, I had no idea this color green had a specific shade name thanks to my lovely friend, Jen, for introducing me to the name during one of her tweets. I always love rich colors, especially colors like this Kelly Green below and what a perfect time to post this for St. Patty’s […]

I’ve been searching for a flared pleather skirt for some time and when Linda and I both laid our eyes on Express skirt below while shopping around Soho during NYFW, we were totally sold. I love the sturdy material and feel of the skirt and now I can check this off my Fall wishlist of […]

Never one to steer away from colors, it was only natural to gravitate towards this J. Crew honeycomb sweater in fuschia. It was the only color out of the bunch that stood out to me, however, the first store didn’t have my size – bummed! Had to call J. Crew’s search consultant to find one […]

Happy Monday everyone! One of the spring trends this year is black and white, which is a classic color combo that anyone can pull off. I wanted to take it a step further and just play with some prints as well. I absolutely love the abstract “inkblot” print on this skirt, but according to my […]

Happy Galentine’s Day everyone! I’m not huge on Valentine’s Day–if we celebrate it, great. If not, it’s not a huge deal. Although from time to time, a surprise flower delivery will make me smile. I’m easy like that. Ha! For this Valentine’s day, I wanted to dress up a bit and found this fun ombre […]

Happy Tuesday and a rainy one at that. I hope you’re having a better weather than we are in the DMV area. Anyways, I love love keeping warm with as many layers as I can wear on a cold winter day. Ever since I got my hands on this cape from H&M, I’ve been wearing […]

Happy Monday! Sometimes I feel you don’t have to go too far to discover hidden jewels among your area. My friend Angela took me to this sunflower field about two years ago and I fell in love. McKee-Beshers WMA did not plant any last year which was a little sad to hear, but so glad […]

Happy Monday and a short holiday week! With the Thanksgiving feast lurking just right around the corner, it has always been a great time to look back throughout the year and do a little bit of self reflect. Even going through some personal struggles the past year or so, I’d like to reflect on the […]

Hey everyone! Here’s a no-fuss casual look for today while I was in Florida for a short weekend getaway/work. I still got to enjoy the lovely weather and sunshine down there so can’t complain much. As you know, I’ve been on such a crossbody bag kick lately only because it allows me to free my […]

Hey everyone! How fun is this mod-style geo top? Although I got it as an XS, it’s still a lot roomy, so I may need to take this to the tailor. I thought it paired nicely with these silky shorts though and absolutely love the feel of them.

Hello from Iceland! Actually, I’m no longer there, but I like to believe I’m still there. I can’t believe how much we’ve done in such a short time and if you haven’t checked out my instagram, then you probably should go there to catch up first. Ha! So this was a spontaneous trip that was […]

Hello everyone! Wow, it seems forever long that I have updated and apologies for that. I’ve been on travels the past two weekends and now just catching my breath. So before I left on my vaca to Rhode Island and Charleston, I had shot this OOTD below as a transition between spring and summer. I […]

Happy Icy Monday! Boy, was yesterday fun with all the icy sleety rainy type of day. It wasn’t the best of weather out there, but it did give me a reason to bust out a rainy day outfit for you all. In my case, it was a rainy turned sleety type of day. I’m one […]

Greetings! As you know I was in Chicago over the weekend, and although just the idea of the city brings chilly thoughts to mind, it was almost a challenge to pack something warm to wear as well as being fashionable at the same time. Before I left though, my friend reminded me to bring my […]

When I had purchased WICKED tickets for Kennedy Center in DC, I had no idea who was going to be the lead for Elphaba. I did a quick search to see who it would be and the name wasn’t familiar, but I was hoping that whoever played her would do the role justice. I really […]

Hey everyone! As you know, I was in SF for Thanksgiving holiday and didn’t get back until really, really late Tuesday night. My flight from SF to Chicago and connecting flight was delayed by two hours. Note to self: go direct or never connect in Chicago–oy. Anyways, I mainly stayed with the in-laws and family […]

Hey everyone! A lightweight blazer is necessary during summer, especially in offices where AC gets cranked high or cool rainy nights. Also nothing speaks summer to me like some blue striped nautical shorts.

This past Sunday, we headed over to my fave location for some dim sum – my favorite pastime. Who can pass up shrimp dumplings and egg tart?! Usually the wait to get a table is always long, so we took some opportunities to grab some OOTD shots while waiting. I don’t know about you girls, […]

It’s that time again for a petite fashion challenge in PFC #18 hosted by Amber from Easy Petite Looks which is to create a look to impress our date! Bonus points for taking photos in our outfits with our SOs. Well, since I was away for my sister’s bachelorette party in NJ/NYC last weekend, I […]

Hello everyone! I’ve had this peplum top since 2007 and love to bring it out every summer. Who knew that peplums are now all the rage this summer. My first inkling was to pair this top with a color bottom but decided to tone down the look by pairing it with white skinny capris. I […]

Hello hello! I’m currently still in NJ/NYC area, but wanted to do a quick outfit post shot from few weeks ago. I wanted to play with fall colors and marigold and purple definitely reminds me of fall and of course, adding a bit of pleather to any outfit is automatically fall-worthy.

Bonjour all! You know I am a sucker for anything French like this outfit here and let’s not forget my ridiculous obsession over macarons. Anyways, so when I ran into this striped sweater on ASOS few weeks ago, I knew it had to be mine. Well, Blair from Atlantic-Pacific also thought the same — see […]

Hello and happy Monday! As mentioned in my last post, due to Saturday’s incident, I was only able to reshoot one outfit which is the outfit below. Thanks to my boo’s patience for helping me redo the shoot that I was able to recreate it again in-between wedding duties as hair stylist and guest. Could […]

Happy Monday all! In a few hours, I’m headed to the airport to my next destination! Be sure to follow along my insta-stories to see where I’m going next. In the meantime, I’m trying to finish up the next two outfits left from LA trip this week, so you should see the last one scheduled […]

Happy Thursday loves! So I was able to squeeze in an outfit shoot while in Houston and I mean, why not, right? The weather was just too nice not to have one. I asked my lovely friend, KL, if she knew of any places in Houston that would be nice for a shoot and sure […]

Happy Monday! This past weekend has been unseasonably warm and I just love it. But let’s rewind back to Thanksgiving week where I was in Vancouver for the holidays and got to experience autumn in Vancouver. The leaves were still in their bright colors which really brought color to my outfit below. I am falling […]

Hey everyone! Since I got this dress from Tar-jay of all places, I have been loving the ease and comfort of this one piece. You can totally dress it up or dress it down if you like. I have been pairing it with multiple looks, so definitely a versatile piece to have in your wardrobe. […]

Happy Thursday! This is the second time I have gone up to New York Fashion Week during the winter. I, again, didn’t have a solid schedule when I decided to go up for the weekend. I had a few invitations to attend a couple of shows and then planned on meeting up with a few […]

Hey everyone! Spring is just around the corner and I am already catching the fever. As soon as I saw this dress on F21 online, I was immediately drawn to it and had to put a pairing together. This fuschia coat, also worn here, was just the ticket to marry the two colors together. While […]

I’ve honestly had resisted the YSL Arty ring for some time now seeing them on every blogger out there and with good reasons too. It’s such a unique ring statement piece that is bound to draw heads and such a conversation-starter. However, at that price for a costume jewelry, I was hesitant to pull the […]

I’ve always had a softspot for anything horse-related and when I saw this H&M horse print blouse popping up everywhere, but in my closet last month, I knew I had to have it. However, this blouse appeared in H&M stores last Fall! My heart sank then, until recently. I found a website overseas that had […]

Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts but as you know, I’ve been going through renovations at my new home and catching up on photo work so what little I time I have left was reserved for sleep–lol. Also I was on travel for work to Atlanta for a conference–first time there. Anyway, If […]

Ever since I fell in love with my first LAGOS piece, I was super ecstatic to get a sneak peek of the latest collection–Black Caviar™. This 9mm rope bracelet has black ceramic beading that gives it such a unique look and it’s so easy to wear with just about any outfit. It’s been awhile since […]

Hey everyone! Say the title three times without messing up. =P Anyways, another outfit from my Fall lookbook video if you haven’t seen it yet. This time I wanted to play with winter white for a workwear outfit, but added a pop of color with accessories. Adding color through accessories helped make the outfit interesting […]

Tweed jackets are one of those items that instantly embodies the Chanel name; classic and timeless. However, Chanel tweed jackets are pretty pricey to start, so when Jean from Extrapetite introduced a more practical alternative, I was definitely tempted I hemmed and hawed for a few months before finally putting an order in with Uniqueen. […]

When I paired these shorts first time in April, they were much too fun not to make another appearance again. I love the casualness of the chambray shirt against the shorts and these wedges are always so comfy to wear.
