Outfits

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 […]

As you can see, I’m holding onto summer for dear life and do not want to let it go. Now that September is here, all I can look for are my fall favorites like pumpkin anything and apple-pickings, but until then, here’s a last of summer outfit for you. When I got this drop-waist slip […]

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Now that I am settling back down from Thanksgiving and my trip to Vancouver, I can almost relax. I don’t know about you but I’ve been in holiday shopping mode and it feels so good to be checking people off my list as we count down to Christmas. I’ve teamed […]

Bonjour tous le monde! Lately, I’ve been brushing up on my French after taking 8 years of it during high school and college. However, I am not fluent by any means. I blame this for not taking that a semester aboard to just be submerged in the culture and really learn the language. Alors, c’est […]

I thought it would be fun to participate in this DC local CapFABB Style Challenge and the outfit I had in mind was perfect for it. Animal prints have always been a Fall fave of mine, but now I can add leather to the mix! This jacket has been my go-to for Fall and I […]

Hey everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend. It was pretty relaxing for me; went to see Xmen Friday night, went to Lara’s 5-year blog-aversary held at Blue Mercury in Fairfax (congrats again, Lara!) and had an impromptu dinner chat with Meg (thanks again Meg!) Saturday night, filmed a video Sunday and […]

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday! I’m so counting down to the weekend and felt it was really long especially when we had plenty of snow days last week. But even a blizzard will not stop me from going out and grabbing some outfit photos for a fall to winter lookbook video–feel free to check it […]

Hey everyone! When freezing temps rolled in few days ago, I wanted nothing more than to dress in layers upon layers just to stay warm. And you can do so without looking frumpy. Lately I’ve been throwing on various faux fur vests over any outfit for the extra warmth, which makes dressing in layers quick […]

Hello all! So this is part two of this week’s earlier post Cancun Day 3 outfit for the day. Since we spent most of our anniversary day in Chichen Itza the day before and came back pretty late, we decided to postpone our anniversary dinner for the next night. So for the occasion, I wanted […]

Hello everyone! Nothing speaks to me about summer like gingham, boater hats and beach balls. How appropriate that City Center DC decided to decorate their store front with the right theme in mind. As for gingham, there will be no shortage of the fun print in stores everywhere. I have another one to show you […]

Happy Monday everyone and for those who celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival, hope you all have been eating lots of mooncake yesterday. Only four more days to go before I am completely done with my Whole30 program before I could think of adding sweet treats to my diet. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, feel […]

Hey everyone! This week will be tremendously busy since I am currently in NYC for fashion week, so apologize for lack of posts. As mentioned in my last outfit post, my sister helped me take several sets of outfit photos few weeks ago, so I can spread them out a bit to have something to […]

Hey all! I always see leopard as a print to wear for Fall maybe because of the warm colors. However, since I’ve been into blush pink colors lately, I wanted to pair the two together to see how they would look and I must say I am really liking the combo. Outfit: H&M blouse, Forever […]

Hello everyone and happy almost long weekend ahead! It’s been so cool temperature-wise these days that I can’t wait to head to Houston for the long weekend to soak in all the warmth. In honor of the upcoming holiday, here’s a fun outfit to wear for those in-between temps. Gingham and stripes are still very […]

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 […]

Ever since I saw Linda wearing a Clover Canyon dress during my birthday dinner in July, I absolutely fell in love with the print. I have never heard of Clover Canyon, an LA-based clothing brand, until she brought it up that time, and again about a month ago, and couldn’t stop raving about the brand. […]

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. […]

As you know, I went over to San Fran during my thanksgiving holiday and didn’t get back till late Tuesday night. While I was there, hubby was kind enough to take some OOTD for me. ^_^ The weather in San Fran was much like the weather in MD during Fall seasons especially when you see […]

Hello everyone! I hope you are ready for Thanksgiving holiday and taking a moment to be thankful of what we have. I always need to make a mental note to remind myself how lucky I am to be surrounded by loved ones and not to take things for granted. The cold has finally settled in […]

Happy New Year, everyone! I wore this outfit to hang out with hubs for our first day into 2013. I’m sure you all have heard this, but 2012 had really flown by so quickly. For me, it was days and weeks and weekends filled with stuff to do and we were always busy doing “stuff”. […]

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. đŸ˜‰ This month’s challenge was to style a summer wedding outfit for less than $100 (or exclude shoes […]

Hello all! It’s been too dreary and chilly over here for my taste. Spring/Summer cannot come soon enough, but in the meantime, been getting into heart-printed tops as of late. Quite strange, so naturally, my eyes went straight to this flowy top below. Blue and red colors have also been on my radar, so how […]

Hey everyone! Sooo, I don’t know if you know this, but I am a little bit obsessed with Frozen. Just a tad. Anyways, I’ve been wanting to do a tutorial on Elsa’s makeup and hair look during her coronation and also her “Let It Go” scene but finally was able to find some time to […]

Hello everyone! I think I can finally see the light at the end of the renovation tunnel. Floors are done and my living room is slowly coming together! Now, I just need to finish unpacking and decorating before I can do a house tour. Can’t wait to show you what’s been happening at my place […]

Once a year, I travel to LA for a beauty event or just an excuse really to eat some great food and catch up with friends. Being a summer baby myself who craves warm weather all year round, I decided to book a ticket and escape the cold. Unfortunately, the cold decided to come 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! As mentioned in this post, I wanted to showcase this dress below from Romwe. This was definitely one of my favorite and the length of the dress was perfect for my height although the lace material on top could be cinched in a bit more. Other than that, I just love the way […]

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 […]

Hello hello! For some reason, I like pairing bright fuschia with something green much like this outfit here. To me, nothing says Spring like bright colors and of course, I was drawn to the items below for the colors, but also love the unique layered collar on this top. I, also, couldn’t resist the prints […]

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 […]

Hey everyone! I wore this outfit during Chicago weekend with degrees in the 20’s and wind chills below “too freezing cold”. As you know, I am a sucker for anything “Love” as seen here, here and plenty here. Maybe it’s because I grew up outside the city of Brotherly Love – who knows. So when […]

Hey everyone! I can’t believe 2016 will be over in three days! This year has definitely been one crazy year and I’m kinda glad it’s going to be over real soon. I don’t know what 2017 has in store but I’m trying to be optimistic and hope that it will be better. Also this shoot […]

About two months ago, I had tweeted about having to go from the H&M that was near me to another to find this sweater in XS, but the SA in 2nd store placed the wrong sweater in XS on hold – le sigh. Needless to say I wasn’t too happy to have made the trip […]

Hello all! I am back with another spring trend as a T.J. Maxx Style Scout and this post is calling for some Spring brights. If you missed the first T.J. Maxx Spring trend, feel free to check out my ladylike outfit here. I love color. Period. So this post was right up my alley. Whenever […]

Happy Memorial’s Day! It’s been such a nice long beautiful weekend and then back to reality (aka work) tomorrow. At least it’s a short week made shorter by the fact that I will be heading to LA this Friday–can’t wait! As you know, I have worn these white skinnies before for spring and completely forgotten […]

Hey everyone! Excuse the bed hair – lol. My sister helped me shoot these photos below on Chinese New Year few Sundays ago and I could not wash my hair that day, which I typically do everyday. Let me explain why. I am not a very superstitious person, but for some reason, certain things that […]

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!! I traveled back to Philly late yesterday and although I wished we had a white Christmas, nothing beats being spending some quality time with the fam. In honor of the holiday, here is a festive look for you all. If you like more ideas, check here, here and here, […]

Happy November! We’ve been a bit spoiled over the weekend with 70-80 degree weather even though the nights are brisk. Time to bring on the layers! The best way to combat those chilly mornings and nights is to add on items that you could take off when the day warms up. You have seen my […]

So I’ve been thinking of adding more fashion videos to my current youtube channel and had this video in mind below for several months now. Yep, it took me this long to put one together – lol. I had one sister try filming me the first time and I felt like the video was missing […]

Happy Monday! Had gorgeous autumn weather over weekend and was able to catch up on some work as well as did a little bit of horseback riding seen here and glimpse of outfit here. This time around, my butt didn’t hurt as much since I was able to get into the rhythm of posting. Needless […]

Happy Vote Tuesday everyone! Since I voted early last Tuesday and had my housewarming party Sunday, I can finally breathe again. It has been four long months renovating my new place and even finishing up last minute projects up to the 11th hour of preparing for the party. Side note: I will film the after […]

Hello and happy Tuesday! I can’t believe the xmas holiday is over and we are soon counting down to the end of the year. It has been a great year so far albeit some ups and downs but that’s just the reality of life. Anyway, I always like to celebrate the new year in style […]

Hello everyone! It got pretty busy at work yesterday so I didn’t have a weekend update–apologies. Feel free to check my instagram if that ever happens, because I’m constantly updating there more often. Anyways, if you happened to catch my 2013 Fall Lookbook video, although today’s weather is a little chillier than normal Fall temps […]

Happy New Year everyone!! Here’s the first OOTD of 2012 and the temperature has been kind lately, which I can’t complain. Few friends came into town from London visiting, so we took them for some yummy Taiwanese food at my favorite restaurant in Rockville and headed over to DC for some touristy stuff. Good Chinese […]

Happy hump day, everyone! Can you feel the cooler temps lately? Sigh, that sign only means one thing and that is fall is just around the corner. Insert sad face here. Don’t get me wrong, I do love fall, but not so much crazy about winter. Anyways, I’m hoping this winter will go by quick […]

Hey everyone! In light of Valentine’s Day coming up this Friday, here’s a fun casual outfit to celebrate with your loved ones and SO’s. If you need more ideas for casual wear, check out last year’s Valentine’s Day outfit post. I love red–it represents love, passion and since I’m Chinese, luck. And who doesn’t love […]

I haven’t really done OOTDs all that much, reason being, one – lack of time and two, don’t have a go-to person to film and take photos. I mean, I can try to do one myself with a tripod, but it’s always much easier having another person working the camera. =) Somehow I wrangled hubby […]

Hello hello! Right after my Frozen tutorial, hubs was kind enough to help me with a few outfit photos, so hence why I’m all done up. It’s the same makeup look as Elsa’s, but just added red lip gloss to go with the dress and quickly whipped my hair up into a bun. As for […]

Hey all! Mixing prints can sometimes be intimidating. Few things to help with that and still be able to incorporate into your outfits would be to stick with one or two underlying colors and keep the prints small. I’ve done mixed prints before with most recently here, here and also played with color prints here. […]

Bonjour tout le monde! Je suis très très contente que LadurĂ©e est ici en Georgetown DC! And that’s it for French today. I just said that I’m so so happy that LadurĂ©e is here in Georgetown DC. A few weeks ago, my friend Holly invited me to the LadurĂ©e event to take in the new […]

Hey everyone! Had a bit of a rough weekend, so I’m skipping Monday’s weekend updates, but you can check out my instagram to see what I’ve been up to lately. Instead, here’s an outfit post for you all. I’m holding on to the last remnants of Summer in this outfit, but adding some transitional items […]

A dress is probably the easiest thing you can pull out of your closet for an effortless wear. That’s how I felt with this colorblocking dress. I wish I could say the same for the weather. It has been off and on with spring cool temps up to summer warmth. I wish it would stay […]

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 […]

Hello lovely readers! If you are a little confused over the word “carpet” in the title, I can explain. When hubby first saw this dress on me, he exclaims, “why are you wearing a carpet?!” Of course, I just gave a chuckle and shook my head at him. I am first to admit that I […]

When I think of holiday parties, I think of lots of glitter, sequins, and jewel-tone colors. So, when it was time to pick out an outfit for my friend’s holiday party last night, I knew I wanted to wear a sequin skirt and a colored blouse. At first, I was settled on getting a red […]

Hey all! Here’s another outfit trend brought to you by T.J. Maxx and this time we were asked to put together a black and white outfit – the classic color combo. In order to mix things up, I wanted to play with textures and what better way to do that but with a sequin skirt […]

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 […]

Happy Monday! I just got back from Florida where I visited my cousin and did some food photography for her family’s restaurant–that was fun. Although it was a short trip, I had no complaints over the 80 degree weather whatsoever. Although Saturday night was interesting to say the least. I got up at 6:30am to […]

I love coats. In fact, I may have too many… I always believe that an outfit is never complete without a great coat to go with it. It kinda just ties the whole look together. So, I just wanted to showcase one with this fun hi-low peplum coat below. It comes with a detachable leopard […]

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 […]

Hey everyone! I am back for the last installment (sad, I know!) to show you the next spring trend as a T.J. Maxx Style Scout and that would be prints. You all know how I love to mix prints lately and that was the first thing that came to my mind when I read the […]

Greetings loves! Are you as happy as I am with the extra hour of daylight? I sure am. It makes me happy to leave work and still have light out. Also why not celebrate the one step closer to Spring with this look below? Many thanks to my sister for shooting these below few weeks […]

Hello everyone! While putting together my spring lookbook, one of the spring trends this year was white on white and military green. So what better way to showcase both spring trends than into one outfit look below. I absolutely love this flowy trench below and just adds to any outfit with ease. I remember seeing […]

Hey everyone! As mentioned in my last pairing of this skirt, I absolutely love it–so much so that I wanted to do another outfit, but this time dress it down a bit to make it a little more casual. I’ve been looking for an eyelet top for awhile and this one fit the bill nicely. […]

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! It’s been a week since I got back from Jamaica and boy am I missing the warmth. Although this week will be getting a little warmer and finally I think spring is here to stay. I welcome the warmth sooner than later this time around, because I want to take […]

Hello hello! Today seriously feels like Summer, but I’m not breaking out my warmer outfits just yet since the forecast is calling for snow Friday. I know. This weather has been quite moody the past week or so, but I can’t complain too much. The DMV winter was pretty mild and I hope I won’t […]

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 all and happy Thursday! Here is the last of the three outfits that my sister helped me shoot last month. You can view outfit 1 here and 2 here. For this look, I wanted to try mixing the two prints together: dalmation and houndstooth to create a fun outfit. Mixing patterns but staying within […]

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.

It’s that time again when nature comes to life and the temperature is starting to rise. That also means welcoming hay fever again, but let’s not talk about that. I wanted to show you another outfit that helps with winter to spring transition. Thee days, I am still loving the two color combo–blush tones with […]
