Happy Monday Everyone! To embrace my Chinese heritage, I want to wish everyone Happy Lunar New Year or in my culture we say Gung Hay Fat Choy (恭喜发财)! :) This holiday, is extremely close to my heart because it always reminds me the warmth of home, family and the delicious feast my dad prepares during this time. In honor or the Lunar New Year, I did a pairing for red and gold. Red is mainly worn throughout this holiday because it is believed that red will ward away the evil spirits and bad fortune. In addition, since the New Year signifies new beginnings new clothing is particularly worn on this day. With a new vibrant red romper I currently purchased that I am currently obsessed with, I transformed it into a top by simply tucking it into a metallic gold pleated skirt. Clever idea right? I love challenging myself to re-style certain items in multiple ways. It is like piecing together a puzzle to create a beautiful picture! I finished the rest of the look with gold accented baubles. Thank you for reading and I will talk to you soon! May the year of the Goat/Sheep bring you happiness, good fortune, and prosperity!

Happy Friday Everyone! Last year's Valentine's day look (Blush Amour), I chose a more romantic and fantasy scenario with soft colors. This year's Valentine's day look, I opted for a more bold, cute and quirky look that you can possibly wear for dinner with friends or someone you love. I am pretty excited for today's post because I have had this red lip tulle skirt stocked up in my closet for the longest time and I thought it is about time to bring it out and incorporate it into this year's Valentine's day post. To keep things bold with a hint of sexiness, I chose a red top with back cut outs. I chose my favorite wing clutch for this outfit because it reminded me of cupid's wings which then reminded me of Valentine's Day. I wanted to complete the look with dainty, simple, gold accessories such as the "Je T'aime" necklace layered with my gold jewel necklace. I brought in some beautiful roses and lip props to have a little fun and play up the look. :) I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend regardless how you spend it! Thank you for reading and I will talk to you soon!

Happy Friday Everyone! This past weekend, I went on a mini getaway to Malibu. My inspiration behind this ensemble was the clean and polished Hampton's style. For the occasion, I re-styled a few of my favorite easy, breezy pieces. I kept the color palette clean and soft with the pale blue and the white. To add a burst of color, I paired the look with a yellow jacket. I hope you have a great weekend and I will talk to you soon!

Happy Friday Everyone! From blush to neon pink, the Pink coat trend has been a hit on the runway to the streets. Seeing how people style the Pink coat trend has been a big inspiration to me because I sometimes find Pink to be paired with very limited colors. The shade of Pink I chose for my coat had to be the one color I find myself always gravitating towards which is...Blush! I love feminine pieces and the color Blush certainly screams that to me. To tie the look with morning glow of the sun, I paired the coat with more neutral colors like gray, white, and black. Considering it is warm during the Winter days in Los Angeles, I chose to go with a little more lightweight look. Depending on the weather, this coat can be layered over a sweater with a scarf and jeans or a fitted sweater dress with a statement necklace. I am currently in search for a Hot Pink coat, so please let me know if you find one that would be perfect for my petite stature. Thank you for reading! Have a great weekend and I will talk to you soon!
