The Manly Me

Sometimes I feel lazy and can’t be bothered to dress up, so I would just wear a printed tee, pants, jacket and throw on some accessories to make the simple outfit pop out. I always think that the most important element that creates the outfit is the accessories. It is catches people’s attention (just like the icing and decorations on the cake, honestly, who cares about the flavor?) and completes your whole look. I don’t usually like to splurge money into clothing, because the season trends changes so quickly. I like to buy simple and classic clothes which will never run out of season (probably that’s why I always wear black…or maybe it’s a New York thing, oh well).For this outfit, I decided to be a bit swag and wear my slightly over sized jacket, homies beanie, and have the matching YSLs.

Keeping it Classy

It’s that time of the year where I’m trying to clean my closet: dig out some spring wear and hide the heavy jackets.  That’s when you always find the old goodies hiding behind the closet.  So I found this old vintage looking rabbit fur vest from Max Mara.  This vest goes back YEARS ago!  Mom didn’t want it because there was a tiny patch which the fur was cracked and fur started to fall off. (I overlapped the vest so you won’t see the bold patch).  So obviously that’s the best time to “borrow” it from here, and never return it. (See, it’s a mothers-daughter-thing, we “share” our love 😛 ) I matched this vest with Brandy Melville’s open back tee and Moussey Pants to show how unique this vest is. I really like open back clothing, I think they’re very elegant and classy.

Before you act, listen. Before you react, think. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try.

Around the Neighborhood

I almost forget to post this outfit! This was before Spring Break when all my roots are out and I can’t even put my hair down because it’s too obvious. People always ask how do I maintain my wavy hair, I just blow dry it till 80%, put some Paul Mitchell Full Circle Leave in Treatment, twirl it like a snake and make it into a little neat bun. Do my own thing, and undo my hair before heading out. Try it (:

I figured I never introduced myself, so here’s a little bio:

I’m born in California, and moved back to Hong Kong when I was 2 months old. I was raised in Hong Kong, fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin ( I would prefer not to speak it, but I fully understand the language). I went to Maryknoll Convent School (all girls school) from grade 1-8, made a lot of life-long friendships.

I was sent to summer camps in the states since 8 years old, and went to boarding school in Maryland in grade 9.  It was a very small all girls boarding school, and it was a hard transformation for me.  So I transferred to Berkshire School in my Sophomore year ( I went there because my best friend, Chantal, was there and she loves it). Berkshire School made me learn a lot about myself and developed the interest in art. (I was always into fashion because my parents are in this industry).

After graduating High school, I went to Loyola Marymount in LA, hated it, dropped out, and went to a community college to earn some credits.  I had no idea what to do about life, I know I like fashion and certainly like money (who doesn’t), so TAADAAA! I came to NYC for Fashion Merchandising Management. major in FIT.  I’m currently in my junior year, and I will be graduating next Spring with 3 minors. OHH, and I forgot to mention I have an adorable chiuhuahua called Charcoal. He’s 3.5 years old now, and he’s an attention seeker. And we live happily ever after.

-the end-

People will forget what you said and forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.

thanks Camille for taking these photos,
have a good weekend x.

Bye Sin City

We went to Tao for dinner on our last night, and I decided to wear some thing a bit more classy [: Our day began by tanning at the pool side, then we went to watch Mystere. It’s such a good show! But I think the David Copperfield show is much better. We saw Benny Benassi in Marquee on our 2nd night and Calvin Harris in Surrender on Saturday, It’s always so much fun being in Vegas!

Totto Ramen is one of my favorite restaurants in nyc. I personally think that it’s more authentic than Ipuddo.  They don’t take reservations, so you often have to line up for at least 30 minutes. Thank god I live nearby so I didn’t have to stand in line under the cold.

I brought Camille to experience the Saturday Brunch Party with Day and Night at Highline Ballroom. This is a must try when you’re visiting in NYC. This venue turns into a night club after we had brunch. Mikki, on my right, is my best friend in nyc and she’s the one who always helps me take photos for my blog [: And Liz, who is on the far right.

I’ll be in Vegas this weekend, so i won’t be able to update my blog. But I promise there are more posts coming up.

happy st. patricks day, drink up x.

It’s my first time to Spring Natural in Soho, and they serve really healthy food.  They even offer gluten free choices. I ordered this scramble tofu for brunch, and I swear it tastes better than it sounds/look. You should check it out when you feel like eating really healthy!

All about BLUE

When I was a kid, my favorite color was blue while all my friends love pink. And this season I fall back in love with cobalt blue. I think it’s so eye catching and suits my not-too-girly style [:

I went to watch Sleep No More last night, it was AMAZING. You have to wear this mask, and walk around the McKittrick Hotel’s rooms. The actors and the environment adopt the dress, decor, and aesthetic style of the early 20th century, inspired by the shadowy and anxious atmosphere of film noir. I feel like I’ve stepped into another time era while I was interacting in this show. I highly recommend you to go watch it! The show ends on 28th April.

Special thanks to Mikkie who took these amazing pictures while shopping in Soho [:

Girl in Black

Black is always my favorite color, and I think it’s completely fine to dress up in all black from head to toe, depending on how you play with the accessories. If you live in the city, go to Fig and Olive for their brunch, the brunch prefix for Monday-Friday is $28 for 3 courses, so delicious and I feel healthy [:
