Outfits

Hello everyone! Thank goodness it’s a short week due to the holidays, because I’m so over the work week already. And to keep extra warm for the biting wind chills, I had layers on. The top was gifted to me from a designer in Barcelona that is still in productions and arrived just in time. […]

Happy Monday! If you follow me on instagram, you’ll know that I have been in LA for Genbeauty event the past few days and so far it’s been a blast reuniting and reconnecting with old vlogger friends. For the event yesterday, I wore this top below with my fave cut-off shorts and it has been […]

Hey everyone! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving break. I’m still in SF until tomorrow night, so just basking in the warmth and storing up the sunshine before I head back to MD. These photos below were from CT where my sister helped me shoot on a very, very cold and windy day last […]

Hey everyone! Here’s an outfit shoot from many weeks ago that I finally got around to putting up. As you can see, I was at my favorite macaron location in Bethesda, Tout de Sweet, and I owe many thanks to Casie for introducing me to the place as well as shooting these pics for me. […]

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 […]

Happy Thursday everyone! I’m currently heading up to NYC for a quick day trip before coming back down to DC again. I have an appointment the next night that I didn’t want to miss then it’s back up to NJ/NYC and Philly. I’m splitting my time between my family and NYFW so there will be […]

Happy Monday all! I had a pretty low key weekend; ran some errands and caught up on some photo work. I’m glad it’s another short week this week with the start of 2014 right around the corner. Anyways, while we were in NYC for the day, stopped by SoHo to look at Warby Parker glasses […]

As you know, we had heavy snow and wintry mix on Saturday and I just love the look of untouched snow. My sister helped me take these shots below and although the bright colors really pop against the white background, we were both freezing to death – lol. Anyways, since we didn’t get a white […]

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 […]

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. […]

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!! We finally did end up getting our white Christmas here in Philly and that is always the best gift ever. =D Ok, now I don’t want to see anymore snow starting tomorrow till Spring. ;P Many thanks to my sister for helping me shoot couple of outfits over the […]

Hello everyone and happy Monday! I am super ecstatic this week because we will be getting three days of mid-70 temp weather. I can feel spring in the air already and that is such an instant mood lifter. In light of the warmer weather coming up, here’s a transitional winter to spring outfit to help […]

Hello all! So for day two of Cancun trip, we decided to take a tour bus to see one of the new seven wonders of the world–the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza. This would be our third world wonder that we saw; the first being the Great Wall of China and the second was the […]

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. […]

Hey everyone! I didn’t think crop top would be something I could be wearing during the Winter months until I came across this crop sweater below. I was surprised at how heavy the material was for the sweater, which kept me warm enough all right. The only complaint I may have with the sweater was […]

I saw this Geo Print Fringe Sweater at Forever 21 last week and thought it was such a fun item for pairing. As you can see below, I wore the outfit without a belt and kinda like the looseness of it, but then hubby was saying it might look better with a belt, so we […]

Hey everyone! So my weekend was pretty much shot with two weddings to shoot, which didn’t leave room to do much else. It might be that way for a few more weekends until early November–that’s wedding season for ya. Anyways, I had fun putting this outfit together a few weeks ago especially surrounding my outfit […]

Hello all and happy hump day! So this post is very special featuring my blogger bestie in this first impression on the ghd curve classic wand creating this easy performance hairstyle that any hair-challenged friends could easily replicate. It also helped that the ghd curve made it super easy to create effortless wavy curls with […]

Hey everyone and happy Monday! I don’t know about you but I’m holding onto summer as long as I can. I can’t believe fall is right around the corner! Anyway, there’s nothing I love to do but slip on a colorful summer dress and go about my day. It’s the most easiest aside from rompers […]

While visiting Boston few weekends ago, I did not think to even bring a blazer, although I really should whenever I go North. The temps were definitely a little chillier compared to MD especially at night. So thankfully there was an H&M nearby the hotel that I was able to grab this blazer below, which […]

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 […]

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, […]

When an item is made of great quality, it can really last you a lifetime. Such as this banana republic top that I got at least 4-5 years ago. I don’t wear it too often though but this skirt just pairs so nicely together with this top. Because of the embellishment near the neckline, I […]

Hello everyone! I just got back from my Europe travels yesterday and heard that it’s been crazy hot and humid over there. Not so much in Europe and the days were longer. I’m pretty sure I will be missing the travel anytime soon now. If you haven’t followed me on instagram, you can catch up […]

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 […]

Hey everyone! So, apparently I am the only person in the world who haven’t caught the Game of Thrones bug and don’t really care to watch the show. **ducks** However, that doesn’t stop me from appreciating the one episode that I watched briefly with hubs and saw this hairstyle below on Khaleesi. When I was […]

Hello all and happy Monday! At least it’s a beautiful day here in my area and hopefully it’s the same in yours. Whenever I think of lace, it just reminds me of romance, because of its delicate material especially when I see it on wedding dresses. So it was very appropriate to wear one during […]

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 Monday everyone! I hope you had a great 4th of July long weekend break. I felt like mine wasn’t long enough but then again, when is it ever? As mentioned in my last post, I was up in Jersey for a day where my family decided last minute to gather at my sister’s new […]

Hi everyone! When I saw this coat on Ann Taylor’s site, the chevron print was calling out to me. Ok, ok — it was screaming at me to take it home!  Funny thing is, this is the first time hearing a coat be called a topper, which I, of course, had to Google the definition. […]

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 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 […]

Hey everyone!! I guess one good thing about having winter storm here on the East Coast are snow days and I had one yesterday. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the email saying work was closed until I was about 10 minutes from there. Ah well, at least I was able to get most of my work […]

Happy Monday all! Over Halloween weekend, I wanted to check out another wall art by Kelsey Montague in SOHO and I knew I wanted to do a black and white themed outfit in honor of that. Being petite at 5’1, it has been said that I should not wear skirts that fall below my knee […]

Bonjour! It’s been two days since we’ve been back to Paris. Most of that time was trying to find a place for me to fix my phone–had an accident at one of the towns of Cinque Terre. Anyway, before we left, we did some touring around Paris a bit and I had my friend KL, […]

Happy Monday! Something about the colors of red and caramel colors are just perfect for a nice Fall day, don’t you think? Although today sure doesn’t feel like Autumn at all. Good thing these photos below were shot few weeks ago when the temps were still doable with bare legs, but of course, you can […]

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! I’m beyond excited to have one of my weddings be featured on Style Me Pretty today. Please check the post out when you get a chance! It’s only been 17 weeks of waiting since I first received the news of the feature, but who’s counting right? 😀 Ok, back to the post at […]

Happy Monday and a short week as well! I’m always excited for the holidays so today I’m bringing you outfit ideas for Christmas or New Year’s. When I think of those two holidays, I immediately veer towards sequin and these sequin pants were just too fun not to play with them! Although they are sold […]

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great long 4th of July weekend. I spent most of it painting and packing, but at least I saved Monday night to hang out at a friend’s bbq. It was raining for most of the day, so unfortunately, that made it difficult to see the fireworks in DC. […]

Hello Autumn! Although I love warmer weather, I do like what autumn brings–the crisp air, the beautiful colors of changing leaves and deeper color tones for styling. This dress has been in my wardrobe since 2012 believe it or not, but it still looks just as good as the day I got it. I love […]

Hello everyone! I’m back with my second outfit from Phoenix trip and I absolutely love this lemon print two-piece romper. For those who can’t seem to warm up to the one piece romper for fear of bathroom situations etc, the two piece will help ease your fear to still be able to rock the trend! […]

Happy Monday! Another spring trend this year was blue and white, so this dress fit perfectly into that. I absolutely love the heavy material of this dress which helps keep me warm during the cooler temps of spring. I love it so much I got it in the black and white stripes as well. And […]

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a very happy 4th. I recently started with a new company and the new CEO gave us Monday as well as yesterday off. What a sweet surprise! Due to travels and starting a new job, I apologize for my absence on this blog and youtube as well! Once […]

Hello and happy Friday everyone! I love when friends and I have great taste like my friend, Crystal, who also styled the same dress below. Coincidentally, I found the the dress randomly in Milan while browsing for this bag below, because I knew that Zara prices there would be a hell a lot cheaper without […]

Hello and happy Monday! So I will be heading out to Hawaii starting tomorrow morning through the following week. Unfortunately, looking at the weather, we will be having rain most of the week which means plan B is in order. Not sure what that would entail but I’m sure KL and I will make the […]

Happy Friday! I am loving the weather we’ve been having and the weekend is definitely looking promising as well. I’ll be having a stay-cation this time around for Memorial Day weekend which gives me a good reason to catch up on some much-needed work and hopefully film a few videos. Anyways, for my second outfit […]

Hey everyone! When I spotted this top in a F21 store in LA during Beautycon, I knew I had to have it. I absolutely love the juxtaposition of the edgy leather with the soft chiffon material. I especially love the stitched floral design near the neckline. To finish up the look, I love the pop […]

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.

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, […]

Hello everyone! I was not prepared for this NYFW SS’18. It just sprung out of nowhere and before you know it, winter will be here. Ugh, I’m holding onto summer as long as I can and I crossed Autumn off my calendar, so I think we are good. Ha! Anywho, I went up to NYC […]

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 […]

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 […]

Hello everyone! I’m taking an extended weekend to visit my sister in CT and see my niece and nephew who I haven’t seen since March. Crazy how time flies these days. Before you know it, Christmas will be here. My sister took me to Gouveia vineyard near her and although I don’t drink, I can […]

Hello everyone and happy New Year everyone!! I hope you all celebrated well last night. I went over to my friend’s place who hosted a Gatsby-themed NYE gathering and tried my best to look the part. Amazon Prime at its best when I need a head dress pronto which added nicely to my blue sequin […]

Hello everyone! I apologize for being MIA for the past few weeks. It’s been a little hectic adjusting after the holidays AND if you have been following my instagram, then you would know that I recently added a little hoglet friend to my household named Pointdexter. You can see more of him on his own […]

Hey everyone! As you know, I went apple picking over the weekend and had such a great time as evident in the photos below. Many thanks to Linda for helping me take some outfit photos as well. As if apple pickings were not fun enough, we headed to brunch at Sugo and found out it […]

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 […]

Hello hello! To continue my love for ruffled skirt, here’s one below that I am absolutely loving in faux leather and blush pink from Zara–two awesome combo to make it an edgy yet feminine skirt. You may also have seen this top early last month when I layered it for the last bit of winter. […]

Happy Wednesday! Here’s another workwear post for you and I absolutely love the color of cobalt blue for spring. It’s one of those colors that instantly adds some brightness to your work day and wearing a fun print dress couldn’t hurt either. I also couldn’t resist adding a pop of red to the whole mix […]

Happy Thursday! With the leaves starting to change their colors to deep shades of reds, oranges and yellows, I thought I would tone down the outfit in contrast to that. As mentioned in my last post on thigh high boots, I’ve finally settled on two favorites with one of them being showcased below. Another will […]

Hello all! When I saw this top at H&M, I really liked the bold stripes and the boxy shape of it. Since it was still a bit cold out when I was in Philly, I still wanted to style it but added a turtleneck for some warmth. I do have another outfit pairing in the […]

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 […]

Hey all! As promised in my last post, I had mentioned that I’ve been on a crossbody bag kick and here’s one from Saint Laurent in the baby version of Sac de Jour. In this outfit, I’m going for all shades of pink as well as throwing in purple only because I love this shade […]

Well technically day three, but since I spent most of Saturday working on photos and blogging and didn’t get into the city until late for dinner, I didn’t count Saturday. For a full Sunday, I wanted to wear something that I could walk around in all day comfortably. I opted for a black on black […]

Happy Monday! For a fun flirty date night outfit for summer, I love love this flowy maxi skirt that sways perfectly as you walk. I also love these pair of Vince Camuto heels that are so comfortable to walk in and believe me when I say that those are always hard to come by.

Hello all! I know you’ve heard me say this but I am really so over with the snow. Oy–at least it’s March now and only four days to DST! Also looking forward to 50 degree weather this weekend. Anyways, apologies for the short post, but I am feeling under the weather. Keeping my fingers crossed […]

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 […]

Hello from San Francisco! So I am in town to visit some friends as well as my SIL and her family. I’m also attending a wedding photography workshop hosted by a fellow photog friend, so that should be fun. As a photographer, I never want to stop learning of new ways that I can take […]
