Happy 2018!

DSC_0070-7

This outfit is inspired by a mix of leftover holiday cheer and the anticipation of Valentine’s Day. For the first time in years, I’m in a solid relationship and am actually looking forward to spending time with the one I love. The star of this look is a periwinkle crushed velvet mini dress. The sweetheart-esque neckline with ruched detailing and short sleeves bring out a romantic feeling appropriate for date night out.

I’ve paired the dress with velvet stilettos for the utmost height and fun rectangular earrings to contrast.

Bird of Paradise

DSC_0032-2

Hi friends! Here in NY, we’re still in the heat of summer but autumn is slowly making its appearance known with diminishing daylight and chillier mornings. My outfit is centered around this bright and colorful bird of paradise dress. Because the print is contrasted against a black background, it almost has a graphic and urban feel. The fit is loose and comfortable but with a structured neckline. I’ve styled it with chunky sandals and a black choker for an edgy look.

Workout

Hi friends! Keeping with the athleisure trend, I’ve style a workout outfit for this week. It showcases a cropped long-sleeve top with mesh leggings and supportive sneakers.

Street Chill

DSC_0076-1

Hi friends!

As opposed to the ultra-feminine previous look, this next outfit definitely fits more in the athleisure category.

I just loved the color-blocked conservative front in contrast to the dramatically exposed back. Doc Martens and an all-black chain choker toughen up the look for a chill neighborhood rooftop hang.

Alternatively, the top would work really well as a beach coverup for a flirty and colorful bikini.

Summertime

DSC_0039-4

Hello friends!

No more hiatus! It’s been an insane year of transitions and experimentation but ultimately, I’m back and now more resolved than ever.

This is a daytime look inspired by summertime picnics spent chatting with close friends. It showcases a polka dot crop top, lace-up wedge sandals, a flowy skirt, and the ever-trendy choker.

The top is a mint green color with white polka dot detailing. It is built well with straps and a second layer of fabric covering the breast area so that even without a bra, the bust is subtly supported. The print echoes the playfulness of an outdoor excursion.

The forest green skirt features an elastic waist to accommodate a potential food baby and there are high slits on both sides to allow for mobility without exposure.

Strappy blue-grey wedges allow for comfortable, yet fashionable prancing.

Summertime is all about shimmering, bronzed skin and I felt that a golden choker would do well as an accessory to highlight the collarbone.

Happy April!

Apologies for the lack of updates, but I’ve just moved out of my parents’ house in Queens into my own apartment in Brooklyn and have been spending a lot of time adjusting my schedule.

The weather here in NY has been extremely turbulent; weekdays are sunny and warm, while weekends have remained rainy and frigid. This outfit was inspired by the contrast and balances a stormy, weather-proof, windbreaker on top of an iridescent and airy summer dress.

Stripes

DSC_0204-1

Happy February!

I really like the shirt that I got from Zara! It has a pin stripe pattern and is cut asymmetrically. The high neck line, streamlined shape, and side slit remind me of the traditional Chinese Qipao. Lunar New Year has just passed and I wanted a modern look that celebrated the occasion. The shirt was the focus of the look so I completed the bottom half of my outfit with all black, pairing black tights with black shorts and black platform boots to add length.
