Made Gold

Can you believe that I just started wearing jeans in the past year? I know, it is pretty crazy but most of my pants are either leather (that’s where a leatherista comes from!) or cloth. If I do wear denim I’m usually a shorts kind of girl. Especially in this hot and humid NYC and Hong Kong weather, my legs seriously need some breeze. Anyway since I recently started wearing jeans I wanted to see what is cool out there. My first pair was actually the ones with embroidery from Abercrombie & Fitch. Then I started expanding my jean collection to some wicked designs like these from Made Gold.

I’ve seen these worn from Bella to Romee (Victoria Secret model). They are often my inspiration for fashion trends. These pants stand out so much that I had to order them for myself! I’m glad that there are holes for my legs to breathe ๐Ÿ˜‰ These pants have became one of my go to cool jeans now ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you have any recommendations for jeans? I definitely should expand my wardrobe. Although it’s already been super packed and I often have to do seasonal cleaning ๐Ÿ˜‰ (every season is spring cleaning season in this house is what Bobby says).

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ย  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? ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have an extra piece in size small. And you can check out my other leather items 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.ย  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 ๐Ÿ˜›

Grad Week

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I can’t believe I will be graduating this week. I still remember crying my eyes out on my high school graduation, because all my friends are going to different colleges, and we won’t be living together in the dorms. I’m sure everyone feels a bit confused, and don’t know what to do after college. Some of us might have jobs lined up, some are going back home for good etc. As for me, I’m planning to enjoy my last summer, and work in Fall. I still have a lot of long term plans in my head, but it will definitely come in play later on. My family will be coming to NYC this week, and I’m super excited to show them around ๐Ÿ™‚

PS: Coachella advance sale on 16th May Friday 10AM PDT!

To all the mommy out there, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

I know it’s not easy to raise me, but you’d always be there when I needed you…and you always were. I never really thought about what that meant till I got older and began to realize how often your time and energy were devoted to me. I look at you and see a walking miracle, because you’re so strong. Your unfailing love without limit, and your unselfishness makes me so grateful. I know that I wouldn’t be who I am today without your love. Mom I love you ๐Ÿ™‚

Being a mom isn’t that easy, well especially being mine…I was a troublemaker when I was little. (or should I say I still am?) My mom and I wear the same sizes clothes and shoes, we would always share our things.ย  I remember my first time wearing heels, was borrowing my mom’s 3 inch tall Jimmy Choo. It was very classic, beige patent leather and I had to wear it to my choir recital.ย  My school was full of lawns, and obviously I wouldn’t know how to walk on grass.ย  Those Jimmy’s ended up as dirty as my rain boots, let along with scratch marks and torn leather.Thanks mom for letting me borrow and ruin your stuff all the time! I know I can be careless some times…most of the times, but I promise when I start earning big bucks I’ll get you whatever you want ๐Ÿ™‚

“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.

Ballerina

Recently my friends have been telling me about horoscopes and how they are very accurate. So I’ve checked out this website, Secret language, and it seems very legit to me. I don’t believe in horoscopes that much, but I do think that there are some hidden reasons why people don’t bond too well with one another even tho everyone is chill.

So I have been recovering from my Coachella weekend, and stayed in LA for an extra week because of the super warm weather. Well, I heard it was cold and rainy in New York, so might as well enjoy the weather. I missed being in LA, there are so many good food and nice people around. It was a good getaway place for me to clear my head and think about what to do after graduation.

I don’t like to wear long skirts, but this skirt from J Brand is very structured and I like that it’s high waist so I could easily pair it with a cropped top. When I was young, I love going to ballet classes, until my parents stopped me from going because they didn’t want me to be on the tippy toes ballet shoes. Speaking of ballet, I went to a ballet bungee class in Chaise Fitness today.ย  It utilizes the overhead bungee system to sculpt your arms and challenge your core as if you danced for hours by using pliรฉs, tendus and attitudes. So imagine yourself like a puppet dancing ballet, it was a good workout for my calves and thighs. Also reminded me of little Annette ๐Ÿ™‚

Not Spring Yet

Is anyone sick of this warm and cold weather in NYC? Ahhh! Thanks to global warming.Well, I can’t wait till the warm sunlight and spring breeze (no pollen please). Almost every spring break, Camille would come visit me from Paris, and we would go to Cali. However, she has to intern for her senior year. So this year, I’m planning to go to Coachella weekend 2! super excited! I need to soak in some nice California sunshine.

On another note, I would like to take a moment to pray for the 239 casualties of MH370,their family and loved ones. This incident is very unfortunate, and make us all appreciate how lucky we are to get to open our eyes every morning and breathe.ย  Just to be awake and be surround by your love ones.ย  We often take things for granted, and wasting our time.ย  This is a good time to change our outlook and start looking ahead to a new way of doing things, a new vision for life.

Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

Snow Leopard

Hello Hello! Since the last time I updated, I have been back to Hong Kong twice. Super busy traveling back and forth for my family ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad that the snow storms are officially over, and spring is slowly coming. My favorite weathers are fall and spring- summer and winter are too extreme for me.ย  I don’t like being in the cold weather much ( first snow is pretty, but those icy wind afterwards… no thanks). Most of the time I look like a big fat bear when I’m outdoors, because I wearing a lot of thick layers on top of a thin layer- it gets really warm indoors.

ย  Sorry for the belated update, I’ll be in New York for a while so I will be updating more! ๐Ÿ™‚

NYR

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had an awesome start of the year. I make a new year resolution list every year, and last year one of them is being a blogger ๐Ÿ™‚ so I would like to thank you all for supporting my blog for almost a year! I know it’s not as consistent and interesting as others, but I promise I’ll work on it this year. Thanks for all of your support and interesting ideas to make my blog grow ๐Ÿ™‚

Speaking of New Year, I got myself a pair of new eyes! I had to wear glasses since 10 years old, and started wearing contacts around 13. After wearing contacts for a long period ofย  time, my eye doctor told me I shouldn’t be wearing contacts anymore,because my eyes are infected and the cornea are starting to damage, so he suggested to do LASIK. It was definitely the most scariest (not painful) moment I had so far, but it was so worth it. Now I wake up and see everything nice and clear ๐Ÿ™‚ But I still have that old habit of stretching my arms to the nightstand to find my glasses before I open my eyes.
