Giving Thanks

Happy Turkey Day everyone! First, I want to thank all of you who have been encouraging and motivating me to blog. I’m sorry to have disappointed you all for quite a while with my lack of posts in 2016 but I am focused on being more active with it in 2017, I promise! I’ve been very blessed and fortunate to have my family and friends be always by my side, through thick and thin. Without you guys, I would probably still be a couch potato ’till today.

This season, I started collaborating with Tobi. Not only are their clothes up to date with the recent trends (and also fit well with my style) but they are pretty affordable as well, a great combo if you ask me. Also, for Black Friday I believe they are having a big sale with 50% off your first order so make sure to take a look!

It started getting pretty chilly in New York. I’m glad I took these shots when it was still nice out. Recently, I’ve been into oversize sweaters which sucks for Bobby because every now and then I will steal his cool sweaters to complete an outfit, they fit perfectly. So, when I saw that Tobi has this Brooklyn Fleece Sweater Dress, it was a jackpot! I’m not sure who was more excited, me for finding my new sweater dress or Bobby because his sweaters won’t go missing anymore (OK maybe still a few). Its actually pretty warm and the zippers on the elbows keep it looking a bit edgy and aren’t uncomfortable at all which is what sometimes happens with zippers on the elbows or knees. When it gets colder, I can pair this with leather pants 🙂

As mentioned in my last post, I’m currently super into pom poms. I’ve actually purchased this white, fluffy, soft pom pom from Canada and tied it into a pom beanie to make my own hat. Definitely going to be my winter go to accessory- and maybe go to Holiday gift 😉 Any cool ideas where I should be using this pom pom next?

POM’d

As promised, I’m updating a bit more often ? Thanks to my boss for letting me work from home this Friday. I hope everyone is ready for the holiday season! I’m super excited about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Ehhh, maybe the turkey too, but more about the shopping. ?

Pom poms are such a trend now. And it has evolved into fur poms for the winter. I started loving pom poms when Aquazzura came out with the pom pom sandals. Then there was the frindge poms, the glittery poms, and now the tiny fur poms. AHH! Absolutely in love ?

This summer, I stopped by Paris on my way back from Lebanon. When I was shopping, this bag totally caught my eyes, and I had to get it. I have never heard of Les Petits Joueurs before, but after checking out their cute, stunning, playful and fun collection, I’m so in love with their bags ? I have been carrying smaller and smaller cross body bags, because they look so dainty. I would say, for now, this is absolutely my favorite brand.

The choker has been the IT thing for a while. This online store, Storets, has this sweater, which includes a knit choker with the sweater. Thank you for making my mornings easier ?

Suede on Leather

img_1774Hey guys, I’m sorry for being MIA. I said I’d be back to blogging but it’s really hard to find time to shoot, because I’m either looking like crap after a whole week of work or working on the weekends. Either way, I posted more photos this time to make up for the past couple weeks.

Last weekend, I was wondering around Soho and Nolita area. I came across this Japanese Butcher store called Japan Premium Beef. I’m not a huge fan of meat, but I would crave it every now and then because I’m constantly low on iron. MAN, their beef quality is SO good. If you’re around the city, I would highly recommend to get their hanger steak.

Alright, back to fashion 🙂  I usually don’t like wearing leather on leather just because it’s a little too matrix for me. However, my boss, Alida wore full on leather with different textures, and inspired me to do the same. At the end of the day, there’s nothing called “too much leather” right? 😉 Either way, I think mixing suede and leather isn’t that bad after all, what do you think? Plus the pink suede shows my feminine side.

Speaking of which, the jacket that I’m wearing is actually on sale in my store 😉 I have an extra piece in size small. And you can check out my other leather items here

“Short” Fall Days

 Fall and Spring are always the best seasons. Sadly, neither last long in New York City. The weather has been cloudy, rainy and gloomy all week – which doesn’t suck too much because at least it’s not rainy AND cold, that would be a terrible combo. I’ve been wearing shorts all week because it’s not that cold, and it’s probably the last week to wear shorts before the Winter breeze gets here.

Speaking of shorts, I have been obsessed with these Abercrombie Shorts. I know Abercombie sounds SO high school, but I swear their style has changed and the quality is pretty good ( at least now they don’t have that moose logo printed everywhere). Their prices are very affordable and they always have promotions going on . My top is actually from Abercrombie too! People say when you get older, you will do things to make yourself feel young. I guess for me it starts from wearing high school kids clothes!

MARIA’S Bag

Sorry I’ve been gone for a while. I stopped blogging because I didn’t think anyone was reading my blog and my writing sucks. Either way, I got a nice little email from one of my supporters and inspired me to keep up with my blog.

So, I have been working for Alida Boer on her brand Maria’s. For those of you who don’t know Alida, she is a former Ms. Guatemala and supermodel. Her brand Maria’s utilizes the traditional Mayan weaving to create one of a kind handbags. Not only each bag can’t be reproduced, it also represents different regions, marital background, social statues and different stories behind the artisans.  Here’s a little more about Maria’s bag and the difference between all the regions in Guatemala.

We had a press preview launch party last Tuesday before Fashion week started. The party turned out to be amazing and lot of people came. Wish you guys came! Next time, I’ll blog about it and everyone will be invited 🙂 To see more photos of the party, please press here.

A Furry Black Bear

I hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving. I’m sorry for my belated post… I have been working on selling leather jackets on Ebay instead of updating my blog. But good news is that I have a lot of women’s and men’s leather jackets! Click into the “SHOP” tab above to see what items I’m selling. Most of them are current season which are still selling in stores!

So I’ve been struggling with writing my blog, not because I don’t have photos or outfits to post. More like I can’t write. Trust me, I want to share everything with you guys, but my writing sucks. So please do correct me if you see anything on my blog that sounds grammatically funnt, or just weird.  Speaking of which, my boyfriend, Bobby has taken over Jen’s spot as a photographer for my blog. Here’s a video of how he feels about this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFzKi-o4rHw

Since the weather has been super warm lately (even warmer than the west coast), I haven’t get a lot of chance to wear my faux fur jackets. I got this jacket for $99 in Alice & Olivia’s Sample sale. This is my winter to go outfit: a black long sleeve tee (usually the uniqlo HeatTech tee), a pair of leather pants, fur coat & boots. If it’s cold I’ll add scarves, beanie, gloves and another sweater on top. Other than that, I invest in my shoes, bags and my outerwear. Oh! and don’t forget sunglasses, because sometimes I’m too lazy to put on make up 😛

Oh Christmas Tree

This year’s Christmas will be different. I’m staying in New York for Christmas and New Years. It was my first time getting a real Christmas tree in my apartment, and my place smells so nice 🙂 It’s kind of a big deal to get a real tree, because it’s not common to have a Christmas tree in Hong Kong. I think getting a pine tree will definitely be one of my traditions for Christmas from now on. Last couple years, I was too busy traveling back and forth Hong Kong, and didn’t realize the meaning behind Christmas. It is a season to give, and to appreciate friends & family who have been supportive. It’s also time to be thankful to people who are there for you throughout the years, and hope they will still be around for the upcoming New Year.

As I have mentioned in my previous post, I’m selling some of my leather garments and tops on ebay:  http://www.ebay.com/usr/ennneto I’m trying to clean out my wardrobe so I can get more stuff 🙂 please let me know if you’re interested in any of the items and I can offer a cheaper price for you. Most of the jackets are brand new without tags, or just worn once for my blog.

Fall Giving

Happy Belated Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a great gobblie gobble day. Thanksgiving is a day to appreciate and be grateful for what you have, but I think people should always carry that mentality everyday.

This Yigal Arzouel is detachable, and have multiple ways to wear it. The sleeves can come off, and becomes a shearling long or short vest. The bottom part of the jacket is also detachable, making it a long or short jacket. I will be selling my leather jackets on Ebay, please stay tuned!

Blue Mermaid

Interestingly, this time of this year isn’t THAT cold after all. You all know that I’m not a huge fan with colors and such, but this blue colored cropped corset caught my eye while I was shopping in Vegas back in Summer. I just wish the sky was more blue so it would matches my top. Oh! lets all stuff our little tummies, Happy Turkey Day!
