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!

Denim Combo, Different Blues

JEANS: c/o Ami Clubwear ( Similar Forever 21, Need Supply Co.)
JACKET: H&M (old, similar Macy's, H&M, Nordstrom)
SHOES: Nasty Gal 
BAG: ZARA (adore Lulu's, 3.1 Phillip Lim, TOPSHOP)
BRALET: Aritzia 
ACCESSORIES: Celine Sunnies, Rebecca Minkoff Y-Necklace, c/o JJ Caprices Earrings (use "aikaslovecloset" for 15%off)


I hope you all enjoyed the weekend with its breathtakingly amazing weather! I really wanted to take advantage of it, so went to Alki Beach with my friends and was so excited to finally get some fun summer time wearing a bikini by the beach! Of course we took a bunch of pictures and videos on Snapchat (@fashionsitaika)!!! After that, we decided to get some delicious dinner at Duke's Chowder House! Our table was on the roof top, and we got to see the sunset while eating award-winning chowder! It was a pure bliss! Luckily I am now living closer to the beach, like only 45 mins by bus! That means I am really looking forward to doing this over and over again during the summer! What did you guys do?

 Ever since I realized how styling can definitely expand the versatility of my wardrobe without buying new clothes or by reusing whatever I have in my closet, I always enjoy making different looks by using some of the same pieces. I am not wearing anything new in today's look, (except a couple of lovely jewelry from Rebecca Minkoff & JJ Caprices [Use code "aikaslovecloset" for 15%off!]) but challenged myself to recreate a different outfit from a chic look to a super casual look!

I've been obsessed with a combo of crop tops and high waisted bottoms lately. I used to not like pairing a denim jacket with denim jeans, but I figured that it's one of the great way to look so chic! I kept the look the same hue by adding these blue metallic sandals and my all-time fave white clutch. Although the crop top is a bit casual, having these gorgeous gem earrings around my face help to elevate the look!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful new week to kick off!

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

Make It Simple, But significant

Black and white. "Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication."

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 Friday!

You know what's coming up next month!? YESSS!!!


!!! Unfortunately, once again I won't be able to attend in person due to crazy busy schedule, but it doesn't mean I can't dress up as if I were there, right? When Fashion Week approaches, I naturally get inspired. I start gathering outfit inspirations from everywhere and come up with some outfits that I would definitely rock if I was to attend!! The camel coat is enjoying a major moment right now. It adds you an instant chicness to any outfit, and it's really a versatile item thanks to its neutral color. I have seen a lot of bloggers, like

Song of Style



, are rocking it and can't get enough of how they style their coats!! I was totally convinced to invest a little money in this

cozy camel coat from


. To be honest with you, it's a bit bigger on me even though it was the smallest size, but I can surely live with it! Wink-wink!

So I styled up this look around the coat as the centerpiece and added a neutral colored turtleneck and white skort. I picked leopard printed booties for a bit of something extra since I otherwise the look is kept simple. Leopard shoes will never go out of style. When I was coordinating this look, I decided I would put on a fedora for a touch of sophistication. I am a huge, like HUGE, fan of the fedora, and this pink one is one of the unexpected pieces I never thought I would have in my closet. Pink is often passed off as simply a girly color, but in reality pink has the ability to create the just right amount of  girly-cool vibe while maintaining your feminine charm. So it was perfect to incorporate my pink fedora to this camel coat look. What's the best thing about this fedora? It looks super cute on my new silver hair! <3 <3 Finally, I love how my vintage shoulder bag/clutch compliments the look from the side angle with the leopard booties.

Are you planning to go to Fashion Week? What's your attire?

Have a great weekend babes!

Hi LOVEs!!!!! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!  

Woohoo! First post of 2015! I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's Eve and kicked off an amazing New Year :)

I really wanted to start off my first post with a look in my NEW silver & blond hair, but I still have a few outfits I didn't have a chance to share last year, and I can't forget this look because it is one of my favorite ones from 2014 for sure!
I always become so obsessed with statement coats whenever winter comes, and I just can't stay away from getting a new one each year! I was more than happy to get my hands on this awesome blue leopard printed coat from Fevrie. It totally amazes me. I love wearing blue, and who doesn't like leopard print? So it's like two of my favorite things in one garment! Scored! I also like the coat because of its shape which is a pea coat style and am fascinated with how cozy it is even though it looks very light weight!

Since the coat really pops up, I styled my inner ensemble with a monotone color to get the coat even more standout! Yet, I played around with hued accessories, even with the lip color, to add some playful vibes. Besides the coat, I'd always wanted to have a beanie with a pom. It's so lovely and cute, and my desire got bigger and bigger every time I saw people rocking it in the street! So glad I got this one now!
I complimented the look with my new pair of burgundy booties and too-adoring Celine sunglasses!        
Have a great first Monday of the year!
