Hi LOVEs! How's your week been so far? I hope it's been a wonderful and productive one!

Today's post is all about BLACK (and edgy)!!!!! Ever since I finally turned into a "little mermaid" thanks to the talented Miguel at

Foxy Cut

, I've been so into a minimal, classic, monotone colored pieces. When I went to Portland a few weeks ago, of course I had to take advantage of "no-tax" shopping. Then, I snuggled this super soft

ribbed knit midi number at

Forever 21

! It's a little challenging to rock the dress with this length for a petite girl like myself, but its comfiness totally got me buying this number. It's literally like a pajama! haha

I loooove #allblackeveything and #whiteout themed looks especially during the summer just because I don't have to use a lot of brain power to think of what to wear in hot HOT weather! So I decided to style the look centered on the dress with black items: black strappy sandals, and a black mini bag. Yet, I spiced it up by adding a

purple lipstick

( a killer match for my hair, right?!) and

these awesome mirrored sunnies from

Polette

, which is a must item for summer! Needless to say, my hair is doing a freaking great job at adding a perfect spice on the look!

How do you like wearing all black during the summer? Yay or Nay?

Hang in there, babes! It's almost Friday!!!!

Hi LOVEs! I hope you all had a lovely and safe July 4th weekend!!!! 
I was introduced to a local amazing designer Elizabeth and her own line Elizabeth Roberts right before my DC trip. I was so pleased to pick up this gorgeous trench vest on their first Annual Warehouse Sale. But let me say first. It's actually designed for a belted long vest dress. I'd been dying to get my hands on a stunning trench vest as well as a sleeveless jacket and hers is just perfect. I realized that wearing it as a vest is more flattering to me, but of course I will share with you what it looks as a dress soon on here. Without no doubt, I had to bring it with me to rock while enjoying my trip!!! 

Elizabeth thrives on kinetic energy and perpetual motion informing her life and design, and I really embrace her cutting edge of both fashion and technology. All of her jackets has a SMARTSHIELD pocket feature designed to protect wearers from the invisible but real dangers of electromagnetic frequencies and microwaves emitted when carrying cellular phones. Her collection offers very functional and flattering designs that reflect refined luxury. It's sleek and subtle with a feminine touch.

I wore this look on day 3 in DC and wanted as comfortable as possible for roaming the city and sightseeing. I combined a silky cami and denim shorts. Then added a pair of fringe sandals for a pop of color and a little fun effect (Don't worry, I switched them into flats when sightseeing began!) I like how they match with my hair color! When it's hot and humid, you don't wanna layer your clothes. But this trench vest is super light weight and breathable, so it helps you mange being chic on a hot day! Yesterday I put it on with a cropped top and midi skirt to tone down. To my surprise, it goes with any look! I accessorized my newest gold necklace (18K) from Isharya, and I am so in love with this double dainty chains and lovely disc with cz. Perfect by itself yet layering with other dainty necklaces could be also wondeful! 

I can't wait to show you the dress version of this piece! Meanwhile, check out her design!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Let's kick off a great start of the week, cuties! ♥

Hi LOVEs!

I normally try to avoid re-using wardrobe pieces because I would rather have my looks have variety. However, once I find something that completely steals my heart that is not an option. It WILL be on heavy rotation for sure.  I think you remember that I shared a

different look with this top

two weeks ago, but here is another look that has more of a feminine vibe. This was also one of the attires I chose  for my Oregon trip. I wore it again because I really wanted to shoot it!

This time, I styled it with super light

floral shorts

and topped it off with a

camel fedora

and

platforms

to match.

Off-the-shoulder tops

are so addicting, plus they are a hot piece right now. I seriously want to wear it every single day. It definitely gives a summery look and is effortlessly chic while being a perfect top to beat the heat. Summer has officially begun and this heat wave in Seattle is insane! Now is a perfect time to grab a few more off-the-shoulder pieces, from tops to dresses, any recommendations?

I am starting my long July 4th weekend now! Have a lot of fun and be safe!!

Hi LOVEs!!!
Long time no post~! I am so sorry for being MIA for a week, but my mini vacation to D.C. was pretty amazing!! It was definitely a much-needed trip, and I was so happy to see my blogger bae Diana of Different Colors & Different Styles on the last day with her sweet husband!! I am thinking about doing a recap post, but if you are wondering what my trip looked like, come check it out on my Insta!

I am thrilled to share with you guys the new fun yet super practical denim shopping destination called Fitcode (currently Beta version)! I was introduced a few weeks ago and had the opportunity to experience the site. To those who don't know what it is:

The quick and dirty is that women can access Fitcode from their computer, tablet or mobile device to take the fit quiz and determine their Fitcode. The fit quiz—four questions— helps Fitcode learn about your body type and current fit headaches to best determine which of the nine unique Fitcodes is right for you. 
Once a Fitcode is established, you can browse a curated set of denim from partner brands directly on the site, under Denim Boutique. Or, for more options, you can also install the Fitcode plugin to shop on the retail sites (currently only available for Chrome). The plugin creates a Fitcode icon overlay on recommended styles, size and my favorite, fit notes about each pair of jeans. 
Fitcode is continuously expanding its list of denim partners, and currently, users are able to use the plugin on the following brand and retail sites such as: 7 for all Mankind, Citizens of Humanity, J Brand, JOE’s Jeans, Nordstrom, Paige, and Not Your Daughter’s Jeans (NYDJ)

As stated, it was the easiest and quickest denim shopping EVER. It took me about 15 mins to hunt for my jeans! That has never happened to me before. You can literally rely on Fitcode to find the best jeans for you by your specific preference and body type. When it comes to shopping for jeans, it's such a pain in the butt because of my height and petite figure. However, Fitcode is a life savor! I was so happy to get my hands on my first pair of J Brand jeans, and I've fallen so much in love with them! The fit is amazing, the comfort level is breathtaking, and most of all I don't have to tailor the hems like I normally have to! Another plus point is that they ship so fast. They came in within 5 days of my order being processed. If you are a denim lover, you should definitely try them out!! You will quickly see what I am talking about here. The official launch will be within a couple of months! How thrilling!

To style my new J Brand jeans, I decided to go super basic with newly added items, which is this Topshop V-neck tee, and a faux suede jacket.  Whenever I go for a minimal style, I always make sure to play with some accessories because they can change up the whole vibe. I added some silver accessories from Trendhood & Lavisha around my neck. Pairing a white tee and silver accessories is my new summer go-to look! I first chose pumps to complete my look, but I changed my mind to pair with strappy sandals for a more seasonally appropriate ensemble. This look convinced me to try more basic looks because, to my surprise, I am obsessed!!

Hopefully, you will get to try out Fitcode and come across a perfect denim you've been looking for!  
Enjoy the sunshine dolls!

Pretty Little White Cami Dress

You need a pretty dress in your closet that makes you look even cuter!

Hi LOVEs! Happy FriYAY!
I just couldn't be happier with the super lovely weather in Seattle lately. I think everyone is so ready to enjoy the summer weather. Just in time for summer, I received this extremely lovely cami dress from Style Moi. It is my final look featuring them.
I am a petite girl (5 feet flat tall) with a long torso and short legs. So that makes it quite difficult to find a perfect dress in general, especially a dress that is 6" above the knees ( the most flattering length) So when I found this dress at Style Moi, I knew I should get it. It's become one of the key dresses in my wardrobe! Aaaand guess what? The straps are adjustable, so you can actually change the dress length as you wish. It is just perfect for both daily use, or as part of a vacation ensemble!

There are tons of way to style this sweet dress, but this time I paired it with lace-up sandals for a more feminine touch, then I put on a straw fedora because it's a summer essential that is also a practical way to protect my face from the harsh sunlight!
As for my bag, it is a very special one for me. My dearest grandpa gifted it to me some10 years ago as a souvenir from Thailand. He was surely keen on my style sense even at that time, and this bag totally goes with the look even now.  Thank you so much Oji-chan ( "Grandpa" in JP!)!!!

What's your staple summer dress? Have a lovely week-end babes ♥

Hi LOVEs!!!! How was your weekend?
Here is the second look featuring Style Moi, one of my new beloved fashion online destination. Can I tell you something? The word can't express how much I love this versatile oh-so lovely off shoulder top!!!!! I'd been dying to get my hands on a summer top like this, but I just didn't have a chance to encounter a piece I really want to wear or fit my petite body perfectly. As I mentioned on the previous post, they offer a variety range of size options, and I got it in XS which is super hard to find the size in the US clothing stores.
This top is so soft and comfortable, and you can rock it from day to night. I even used as a cover top when I went to beach thanks to its sheer fabric!! On top of the off-shoulder design, these bell sleeves are what makes this top much cuter!

I styled it with high waisted denim shorts and my new summer wedge sandals for a chic effect. Even though the top is just as cute itself, I wanted to glam it up a little more with some gold jewelry. I layered a collar necklace and multirow necklace. This is such an unexpected combination, but I am actually loving it!  I was gifted this little pretty crystal ear cuff from my blogger babe, Tiffany at a blogger brunch. I adore her store called t + j Design and so happy to own this cute cuff because sometimes I don't want to over-accessorize myself, yet need some bling, which this one is the perfect piece for the occasion!

I hope you like how I style this Style Moi off-shoulder top! What is your summer-ready look?
Have a lovely week, dolls!

Hi LOVEs!!!!
Recently I have run into a super cool fashion online store called Stylemoi! Have you guys heard of it? If not, you should definitely check them out! They have a ton of lovely stuff that wows you!! One of the amazing facts about them is that they offer variety of size choices from XS to XXL! With that said, I am so honored to collaborate with Stylemoi and get hands on their summer-ready pieces! I was so lucky to pick 4 things, which I am sharing with you one of them today.
These freaking fun ripped knee jeans caught my eyes immediately when I found them on there. Then, I am completely in love with them in person! Denim jeans, high-waisted, well-fitting, and ripped. What would you need more? I decided to go for a 70's vibe styling them with my current finds, a cable knit cropped top and bold cat eye sunnies! If you dig 70's vibe, a combo of high-neck crop tops and high-waisted bottoms is one of the effortless way to achieve it. This ensemble is gonna be heavy rotation for sure! What do you guys think?

I am super thrilled that I am going on a quick short trip today to Portland with my friend which I decided to plan at the last second! It probably won't let me do a lot of activities there since I am going along with his client meetings, but it's always refreshing to change a pace just by going somewhere fur, right? Follow me on Instagram (@aikasloveclose) or Snapchat (@fashionistaika) for more real-time updates!

Happy Thursday, cutie pies! ♥

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!
I really appreciate the super lovely weather. It looks like it's already summer, which I love so much! As the temperature gets higher, I get to enjoy wearing more dresses because; 1) it's super comfy and 2) effortless to add a feminine touch. This blue striped casual dress is definitely a fun piece, but I thought it would be cuter if I spiced it up a little bit. So I paired it with a chambray shirt as a jacket, a boater hat for a spring/summer vibe. This hat has been my go-to hat every spring and summer. I still love wearing fedoras and floppy hats, but boater hats seem more like seasonally appropriate pieces that you can easily create a summer-perfect look with. I decided to go for black platform sandals so that the stripe print pops more.

Speaking of the location where I shot this look... I came to Discovery Park and it's absolutely one of my favorite places in Seattle. It's breathtakingly beautiful and there is lots of green. The air is so refreshing which relaxes me so much!! I was there for about an hour, but you have no idea how much I felt revived! I wanna come back again for a weekend picnic or just enjoy the view, forgetting all about social media! :P

Happy Friday dolls!

Hi LOVEs!!

I hope you had a very productive week and are so ready to kick off a fun weekend!

My week was super hectic, which is why I am writing this right now at 10pm! haha

I am so thrilled to share with you a comfy piece that I received from

UNIQLO

recently. To be honest with you, I really had no idea how I was going to style

this mint polo

when I received it because for me, polo shirts are something that I wear for the purpose of  playing sports! So I had to stand in front of the mirror for a while, wearing this polo to come up with some styling inspiration. Then, I came to the realization that I should go with a basic and casual look that could be worn as a day-to-day outfit! Styling it with a pair of denim pants seemed like the the right choice! Even though this is a casual look, I decided to wear platform sandals add a touch of sophistication and chicness to the look. Also, adding some height manages to balance it out (as always!!) You can definitely switch them out for to flats or sneakers!!

On top of the playful mint color,

this polo

is super lightweight and I love its fabric that features a breathable pique that dries out very quickly. On the day of shooting, it was really sunny. I was slowly sweating while searching for a location to shoot, but I was very comfortable in this polo shirt! As you may have noticed, I like to style it by turning up the collar. Some people don't like it, but I think it's a good way to not look frumpy! Even better looking with a big bun hairstyle if you have a long hair!

The price is super wallet-friendly, and

there are selections of 12 fun colors

including basic colors like white, gray and black! It's a perfect every day piece for the warming weather!

Sweet dreams! Oyasuminasai!

Hi LOVEs!!! Happy Friday!!!
One of the favorite things in spring is definitely to enjoy a day with a pretty view of blooming flowers wherever I go. At a park, neighbors, and random streets. Literally everywhere. Yesterday while I was running a little errands, I came across adorable cuties on the way. So I had to stop and took a snap of it! This little happiness always gives me a positive vibe and puts a big smile on my face naturally.

Wearing floral prints is another way to amuse myself with the season. And these 70's inspired floral printed pants are absolutely on point! The color is so uplifting, the fabrics are so stretch that I feel like I am wearing a pj, and I love the big flower prints! The lengths are flattering for petites even though you have to wear a pair of platforms, which I don't mind that at all. Yay to longer legs! I paired them with a simple black cropped top to make the pants pop and also to show a bit of skin for a great amount of sexiness. I wore this on Easter so I added pastel blue mini bag to celebrate the holiday.

As the weather gets warmer, I opt to play with my hair like top buns, ponytails, or side braids...The options are endless and it's actually somewhat significant to style your hair because one look can be changeable depending on your hairstyles! Whenever my whole face is showed, adding a pair of statement earrings is a must.  Recently JJ Caprices gifted these gorgeous jeweled earrings when I had a meeting with her and I instantly fell in love with them. Too lovely to take them off! Loving the color-blocking action going with crystals and silver accents!! Her boutique offers one-of-a-kind pieces, and that makes me feel even special to wear these earrings! I highly recommend to visit her store if you love amazing, unique and handmade jewelry around the world.
Don't forget to enjoy a special code, "AIKASLOVECLOSET" for 15% off of your order!
Also, she is having a special trunk show on April 25th at Hotel Max featuring global finds and new arrivals from over 10+ countries including Turkey, Italy, Israel, Peru, Costa Rica, France, India and more.

Hi LOVEs!!!!
 I hope you are all well! For the last few days, I've been feeling a bit discouraged because of sickness, and it's super hard to keep positive and get energized... Ugh I hate this kind of feeling </3 How do you guys beat the feeling when you are in a bad condition?

Sometimes, I really love playing with simple ensembles - just plain black and white. And I totally believe that you never go wrong with simplicity. To me, hair style is one of the significant parts of my style. I don't want to stick with single style. If you have followed me longer enough, you've seen me changing the color countless times for the past several years... and I've mentioned a couple of times already that it really affects how I want to style myself. Because I have this cool lavender ombre hair, going for black & white look is even more fun. It highlights my hair color so much.

I created the look with what I already had except my clutch. Adore the top with a sporty vibe paired with side zipped black skinny pants for a chic and sophisticated touch. Wearing a lightweight soft jacket definitely helps to refine your spring/summer look, and it is also a great way to layer up for a little chiller weather.  I love how this white biker jacket polished the look even more. I decided to finish the look with my new mirror embroidery clutch that I was gifted. This clutch instantly adds a festivity vibe and to my surprise, it goes with anything!! Just like a leopard clutch is always on point to any look! So I can't help but carrying it everywhere lately!

Happy Hump day cuties!

Hi LOVEs!!!! Happy Easter Weekend!!

Any fun plan? I am going to my friend's birthday party later today, and I am super excited because I've known her for a while through social media but never met in person!!

Today's post is all about my new chic glasses. Now the technology has changed our lives and we CAN'T live without it. AT ALL. How in the world could I blog without my laptop? I have to admit that my life could be boring without my iPhone. It's sad to say that, yet it's true. But, did you know that artificial light and blue rays are coming from your computer screens, tablets, cell phones, and other kinds of devices? The worst part is.... it is harmful to your eyes.  So

Polette

, one of my new favorite eyewear brands, is just so awesome that they have launched undoubtedly fashionable glasses that protect our eyes called

E-POLETTE

collection

. Their glasses have lenses with a filter that shields your eyes from excessive blue light emanating from the digital screes around. How cool is this!!?

I decided to go with

E-JOPLIN

glasses as my first pair, and can I just say how adorable these are?! A pair entirely made out of acetate, with a long elaborated work. I indeed adore the brown tortoiseshell. Even though I particularly prefer oversized eyewear due to my facial structure, but these ones perfectly flame my face. Ever since I've been using these glasses, my eyes feel less tired. I literally carry them around with me in my purse wherever I go because I am totally a iPhone and computer freak. I am so glad I got them! The prices are super wallet-friendly, and the quality is killer. We love technology, but it should be safe, right?  If you haven't had a chance to check them out yet, I bet you will surely love them! 

Have a lot of fun on Easter!

Hi LOVEs!!!!

The weather in Seattle lately has been super unpredictable, and to be honest with you, it's driving me insane. It's sunny one day, and next day it completely changes to a gloomy, chilly, unhappy weather. The worst part is.... it greatly affects my emotions! Ugh! I can't wait for summer! But outfit wise, I am really pleased with the cool temperature only because I can take advantage of it to still wear my favorite coats!

This

camel oversized coat

has been a big hit ever since I've owned in my closet, and needless to say, I've worn it a countess time already. And I wanted to create something spring-inspired. Whenever I wear an outerwear, especially a little thick one, I always tend to tuck up the sleeves to show some skin. This one easy trick instantly transforms any winter-ish coat to an appropriate spring one. Even a black bicker jacket as well. Today's look was created around this awesome coat with a double denim ensemble along with a

camel hat

which is my major hat obsession right now.

Since the festivity mood is floating everywhere, I was inspired to wear festival-ready accessories to finish the look. A peacock earrings, a beaded necklace, and of course a

fringed bag

. They are definitely spice up the look!

I love my new sunnies from

Polette

and new chic pointy heels from

Cherry Footwear

. They are perfect to complement the look! Never go wrong with a black pair of heels! If you are looking for a fun, affordable shoe online store,

Cherry Footwear

is such a good place to shop at! And I have something special to my readers! Use the code "

Have a lovely day, dolls!
