Hi LOVEs!!!
 We are all so excited to see the streets covered up with beautiful orange leaves, and we definitely need more cozy knits, pretty coats, and OTK boots! I know, I know...! But it doesn't hurt anyone to dream of warmer weather with this amazing white dress, right? ( loving these dresses, here, here, here)  A few posts back, I shared this look where I wore this dress as a perfect midi lace skirt. Do you remember? So this is how the dress looks like, and I can't help but love its wide open-back detail. It's sexy yet lovely, which is perfectly wearable from day to night. Or even for a special occasion! Every girl needs a stunning white dress in her closet, and this number is definitely the one for me at the moment!!
I am so glad that big bring is back this season. I've seen that this dainty jewelry has been such a hot trend, and I've been embracing it! However, this fall & winter, oversized sparkling jewelry made its return! To be really honest with you, I am all about gorgeous statement jewelry, and my jeweled earrings bring this white dress look to a more glamorous and alluring level!
Midi length is sometimes very tricky to style in, especially if you are short like me. Paring nude heels is always the best solution. I love how this feminine look is changed up to be more edgy once putting on a biker jacket!! Which do you prefer, with or without?

Please take extra care guys, I got a cold yesterday and had to be in bed whole day to recover! No good!
Stay warm everyone!

Hi LOVEs!!! Hope your week has been going lovely so far!
GUYS! I have constantly been so thrilled over the last two weeks and have been feeling surreal, even now! This mermaid hair, how dreamy and cute it is! Any words can't describe how freaking happy I am to finally have THE dream color!!!!!! Since I have super *BLACK* asian hair, I would have never thought that I could have done this color EVER. I love how all three colors are so beautifully blended with each other, and it's way too cool that depending on where you look from, the colors are changed! It's like a too-go-to-be-true feeling, but it's all mine! I can't wait to share with you guys more looks and hair styles with this new hair color!
In case you wonder, I got my hair color done at Foxy Cut in downtown Seattle with Miguel. If you are interested in coloring in a sick color, I fully recommend my friend's salon! He is so talented! (obviously!!!) It's summer, let's play with colors~!!!!!

I wore this ensemble a few weeks ago at #ShoedazzleSaturday, a blogger brunch with my fellow bloggers. (I love blogger brunch! <3 <3 ) It's my kind of dressing up in a pair of pants. I first chose these awesome blush printed pants. Then, I thought it could be fun to style them with a color-blocking outfit, so I picked metallic sandals and vivid green bag to create the look while I kept the rest of it in basic colors since my hair color adds a few tons already.
I am all about details. As the summer approaches, I enjoying dressing my arms up by stacking up cute bracelets. So when Carley, the founder of Bourbon and Bowties reached out to me and said she loves my style and wanted to send her pieces, I was more than pleased! Their jewelry are so unique yet very adorable and eye candy, and they are also handmade by local men and women. You can check more about them here. They handpicked me three lovely bracelets which are Turquoise Slab Bangle, Zebra Bangle, and Fossil Quartz. I've been in love with them so much since the day I received. If you are a jewelry lover like myself, you surely adore their pieces!

Hope you love my new hair color as well as today's color-blocking look!
Have a nice one, sweeties

Hi LOVEs! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Today's look is all about layering and edginess, and this is definitely one of my favorite ensembles in all-black with a touch of color. People tend to wear dark colors during winter, and so do I. However, I love playing with some hues and making the look both edgy and fun. That way, I don't feel dull and sad. This is especially when you live in a gloomy and rainy city like I do!

I'd been on the look-out for a chunky v-neck pastel sweater for the longest time, and I finally found it on sale at

ZARA

 a while ago. I normally wear  a small size, but decided to go with one size up for an extra bulky silhouette. At the same time, I scored this

light maxi wrap skirt on sale

as well. It's impressive that I can rotate the slit to whatever position I want to! I can put it on the side, front, or back. I adore the combination of an oversized knit with a maxi skirt. Since I had scored the perfect pieces, I figured I should try it on right away, yet it's way too cold right now to wear the skirt by itself, so I paired it with leggings underneath. I love the contrast of their different textures. Whenever I wear a maxi skirt/dress, I always style it with a pair of platform shoes to add some extra height. I picked my all time favorite booties for the added slimming effect.

You can never go wrong with a

biker jacket

to create an edgy vibe. And if you have a printed black and white scarf, that's even better to emphasize the vibe. These items aldo help you beat the cold. To complete this edgy look,  I opted for a

dark red lip stick

, and of course my awesome hair is doing such an awesome job!

The 

GIVEAWAY

is still running, so don't forget to enter!

Stay warm dolls! ♥

Hi Loves!

It's unusual that I post at night, but today was crazy busy all day long. I just got home from an event hosted by

Ben Bridge

for their newly launched collection, called

Lisa Bridge Collection

! (The blog post is coming soon!) This is my first chance to sit down, relax and write this post.

What's your favorite piece for the winter season? Mine is definitely this furry vest c/o

TOBI

. I had been searching all around for one for the last few years, and nothing really caught my eye until I came across this cute pale pink fur vest. For some reason, I've been so into pale pink colors lately. So no wonder I am so in love with this vest over the other ones out there.

Fur vests are such an amazingly versatile item that I feel every girl ought to have one in her closet. While it can be totally wearable on a daily basis  (like how I put it together in today's look), you can also dress it up like

this one

 when I wore it for my New Years Eve look. If you are getting tired of a regular biker jacket ensemble, get a fur vest! :) It will instantly elevate your look and kick it up another level with its fun and sophisticated effect. This is one of my go-to outfits, and you can see what it is doing for today's look! I am pleased that you can layer up the vest just like a scarf. Even if you take an outer layer off, you can actually put the vest back on for extra warmth and still remain looking chic. It's double yays!

With the fur vest, I mixed up with my new recent purchases (  

top c/o Shoproxx

,  

skirt from Romwe

, and

booties from F21

) and my oldie items. These wine red booties has been my BFF for a while! I can't get enough of how sleek they look from the side!  

By the way, I adore how

Wendy of

Wendy's Look Book

styled her faux fur vest with her tiered dress and over-the-knee boots! Even though she wore it back in October, I think this could be a cute transitional spring look if paired with a brighter color palette. I will try the "style challenge," taking inspiration from her look once I find a lovely tiered dress! Don't you think it will be fun??

I hope you like/love how I styled my beloved winter item!

Hi LOVEs!
When it comes to fall ensembles, I am awfully fond of mixing things up with different shades of gray. I worn gray hued look back in January, and since then I really got into gray-on-gray looks. Since summer has ended,  I am currently keen to take stock of my lovely GRAY pieces so I can create some all-gray outfits for this fall and winter! I am already so excited imaging how I am going to end up combining all of the gray items I have!

For today's outfit, I would like to introduce this cute pencil skirt with a lace hem design.  I recently purchased it at ASOS and it definitely goes into my "gray" collection. The lace hem detail on this skirt takes any look to the next level and adds that oh-so-important feminine touch to any look. I put it together with a gray jersey (This is super comfy and super fun with its sequined print!) to create a gray-on-gray look, then I added an edgy vibe by pairing them with black items to complete the look.
For me, the ultimate finishing touch for such an outfit is to add a pair of sunglasses. Originally sunglasses may have been meant to protect your eyes from the sun, but now they have assumed a key role in outfits and they can even elevate your look. That's why I can never have enough killer sunglasses! I got these awesome cat eye sunglasses from ASOS with the skirt, and now they are my total obsession. Bold, yet absolutely chic!
I am getting my first EVER pair of sunglasses from Celine, too for my late birthday gift! You have no idea how thrilled I have been!

Have a wonderful day sweeties ♥

Hi LOVEs!
Yay! Weekend is finally here!
Today's post is going to be short and sweet. When I was looking through the pictures from fabulous Fashion Week for the last few months, Eva Chen's black and white number print dress really caught my eyes and right on time I found a similar dress on Ami Clubwear. (Unfortunately it's sold out :( ) The print is just awesomely unique, yet head-turner, isn't it?! I always can't take my eyes off anything with amazing prints and details! My style is all about uniqueness, and this dress definitely embodies that feature. Even though this is a bodycon dress, which is considered to be worn for nigh out, I wanted to create a day look with it. So I simply paired it with this awesome pastel biker jacket and a white clutch bag with inspiring quotes on the both side. Since the print makes the dress edgy and cool, I went with stunning faux leather booties, also courtesy of Ami Clubwear, to complete the look. I extremely adore the details all over the shoes, especially the heel part!

It could be fun to style up the dress in a different way with a chunky knit, sheer tights, and killer booties for another day look!

Happy weekend everyone!

Hi LOVEs!

Since it's summer, I want to play with vivid colors and try to avoid dark colors as much as I can! I am very comfortable in this dress thanks to the loose fit, and the lacy thin straps give it an extra feminine touch! This dress does everything! Unfortunately, the length wasn't quite right, even though I bought the smallest size.  As a petite girl, I really need to consider the length of the hem to provide the balance for the whole look. Otherwise, it could throw off the impact of the other parts of my outfit and become unremarkable.

Whenever I encounter this issue,of a lengthy hem, I always use a belt for a bit of a magic! I chose an

Isabel Marant x H&M

leather and metal chain belt, which would go very nicely with the silver pendant. Also, I like the combination of sweetness and metal accent.

This is my first time styling a fedora like this, and I LOVE it! This is a great way to style up a fedora during the summer time. Putting your hair up keeps the back of your neck cool from the summer heat. Also, can I talk about these killer

Jeffrey Campbell

ankle boots

? I'd been looking for summer boots over the years, and had had no luck to find them... But finally! I found comfortable yet funky ones also on

Nasty Gal

! I even scored them with 75% off!! :) Yeah, there was no reason not to get them!

I combined a leopard print scarf and a biker jacket for the night-time ensemble to keep myself warm!! Yup... Seattle is still getting chilly at the night time! :(

Did you like how I styled the slip dress? Hope you did!

Happy hump day everyone!

Hi LOVEs! How are ya?
I wore this outfit when I went to SEE Eyewear launch party a while ago... I definitely love the combo of lace on lace. I was pleased with outcome and that the whole outfit looks like one complete dress with two different patterns combined on top and bottom. Because of one-color hue, it helps one look taller by creating an "I" figure. Thanks to the lace patterns, the skin is peeking through the clothes -- emphasizing sex appeal. I think it's safe to say that all black could be worn in Spring if skin is still showing. The lace skirt is adjustable, so I made it a midi-skirt instead of a maxi-skirt so that I could wear black socks to go with. Wearing ankle socks in any shoes is such a great idea, especially during the season when you can't wear boots because it's too hot, and you can't wear pumps or sandals either because it's too chilly. Since this outfit was for an eyewear brand launch party, I mixed a pair of black flamed fake glasses for a little playful accent and then accessorized with silver jewelry.

Now that the season is switching to spring, and it's time to let the dark clothes sit back in the closet and bring out the bright colors to play. I love black biker jackets, but I needed to update my wardrobe with some new dazzling pieces. Then, I picked up this insanely awesome pastel biker jacket from ZARA. Seriously it keep blowing me away every time I wear it. Everything is just on point! Beautiful pastel blue, its design is a bit of boxy structure that helps to stay on my narrow shoulders when wearing it over-the-shoulder. Just wearing this jacket alone is super trendy! I am even obsessed with its back silhouette. Because the jacket is pastel blue, I paired a watch with a blue bungle to match and make it pop out of the all-black ensemble. 
Whenever you are struggling with  which shoes you should go for to complete the look, pick a pair of nude shoes. You'll never go wrong with them, and they are magically harmonized with any outfit and any occasion!


Wishing you a very wonderful week, sweeties!

____________________

One of my favorite words in this entire universe is "LOVE". And not just because it is party of my Japanese name. This world could not work without LOVE, and it is a common sentiment that all humans share across the world, right?

When the awesome

Charlotte Russe

team sent me this

LOVEly dress

, I was just speechless. This is so me, and I'd been looking for a monochrome one-of-a-kind dress for a long time. Not only do the "LOVE" graffiti prints make this dress stand out, the cutout along the neck and slit sides are inviting, flattering and so... wow! I love any dress offering details that elevate sex appeal. On top of that, the dress is winter-appropriate because it offers long-sleeves. That means I don't have to freeze in this Seattle cold weather in the name of good style. This dress can be presented  in a multitude of ways. Of course you can wear it simply as it is, just like how I did here. You can add a bit more and layer it up with a chunky knit over the dress. You could also use the upper part as a top and put on any type of bottoms. This bodycon dress is by far an absolute statement piece. 

I kept the black and white theme going on by paring it with black sheer tights and my new

ALDO

leather booties

, which I adore so much! To be honest with you, they are a bit uncomfortable, and I can't walk for a long time in them. Even still, I wear them occasionally due to their beautiful leather texture and fantastic side view. I chose a 

H&M

cropped biker jacket and wrapped up in a

Forever 21 

oversized scarf to bundle up. They work together to create an edgier look.  

I've been in love with this

Rebecca Minkoff

M.A.B Tote Mini

that I've given as a Christmas gift. The fabric is insanely cool and it has two different faces in the back and front. Either with or without the strap, it is such a fantastic go-to-bag!      

Happy Friday

---------------------------------------------------------


In my previous post, I mentioned that I am quite obsessed with pencil skirts lately for so many reasons. They elongate your legs, are sophisticated, and add a chic vibe to your look. With that, I would like to introduce my latest pencil skirt ensemble, which qualifies as my favorite fall look so far.

Tartan prints are now quite ubiquitous and I really adore this big fall trend! Thus, I was very pleased when I found this beautiful, chic, polished tartan skirt from ASOS. There are plenty of ways to rock this lovely tartan skirt, and I decided to go for a combination of punk and chic vibe together. I received this simple but eye-catchy BALLER tank from Charlotte Russe in my most recent care package from them. THANK YOU CR TEAM! The tank really add the punk to my outfit, and is really cool! Wearing a beanie tops off this fall look, I mean, what is fall without a beanie, right!? I really love this yellow beanie from Target, which I got for around $5!!!! What a deal! Mather Nature paints with a bright palette of red and yellow as she shifts the seasons, and so this beanie's bright color completes the look that blends right in!

Fall can be a little chilly, and I believe that a moto biker jacket is such a great piece to add to the the rocker/punk look.  The red lipstick elevates the look even more. Still, I wanted to retain chic and polished side, so I balanced things out with a fur bag, pointed platform high heels and crystal necklace. These items also add the right dose of femininity, and my side braid hair provides a touch of playfulness.


I hope you like/love my tartan look with a punk taste!
How would you wear a tartan print?
