Hi LOVEs!! Happy Veterans Day!
Hope you kicked off the new week super fabulously!
I don't know if I have ever mentioned it, but I have always been into mens-inspired looks and girl-meets-boy mixups. Unfortunately, I haven't had enough opportunities to show such styles to you (at least not as much as I want), so here you go!

I scored this amazing oversized blazer at Buffalo Exchange last year, and it's been my ultimate favorite during this time of the year. It helps me easily achieve a sophisticated look as soon as I throw it on. I am super petite with narrow shoulders, which makes it difficult to find an ideal blazer that is well-fitting, especially when it comes to an oversized one. So I am glad to have this one and I will keep it forever in my closet! This look was styled with my old wardrobe, which proves that you don't have to get new things to create an on-trend look!
To pull off this masculine-inspired look, I just combines with classic staple items together: white shirt, skinny jeans, and lace-up heels. Oh, and you can't forget to add a fedora hat to compliment the look. That's what makes this look polished! You could swap these heels for a pair of oxford or ankle boots for even more tomboy effect. I personally love mixing things up with heels to add some height to my look. (Just because I really don't want to look short and it's important to make up for my short legs!!!) A few things I always keep in mind when I go for man-like looks is not to forget to add a hint of feminine touch. So this time, I topped off with statement earrings, a pop of red lips and a lavender bag.

I seriously need to start hunting for more cute fedoras to wear this season! Any recommendations of where to shop at?
Have a good one, lovelies ♥

Hi LOVEs!
Today's post is a little bit different from my regular posts!!

I have a question to ask you... What's your favorite hair style?
Me? I've always had a big desire to have a bob haircut. I had one a long long time ago, but I don't even remember when it was. A bob is super cute and romantic... It's always been on my top 5 list of hair styles I want to try. In addition to that, one of my fashion divas, Rihanna, is rocking a black bob right now!!! She looks super amazing in that hairstyle! Still, I really love having my hair long and am enjoying coloring it in ombre. One day, as I was doing a photoshoot with my photographer friend, Eric, I found that he has this lovely black bob wig at his live-in studio! I immediately asked him if I could try it on. As I was checking myself out in the wall mirror, he grabbed his camera and he said "Hey, Aika! Let's shoot!"
That's the story behind these pictures!!

Talking about a little bit about the outfit.... I looooove this Bob Dylan oversized tee I found in the H&M mens section. It's big enough for me to wear alone with nothing underneath, or I can knot the hems to make it into a crop top, or it totally goes with leggings or jeans! So funny that I happened to sport 'two bobs' in one outfit - BOB hair and BOB Dylan! lol That's why I titled this post '2 Bobs Better Than 1'   

I am now totally obsessed with a bob hair wig, and I really need to get one for myself!!  I won't need to chop my long hair off --  I just need to save up the money to get a wig! I wish I had pre-planned to style my outfit for the black bob wig, yet I am pleased with how the pictures came out!

Hope you liked me with the black bob hair! :)
Do you dare to try it out for yourself?

TGIF my sweethearts! ♥

Happy weekends LOVEs!!!!

How's your weekend so far? Everyone is super thrilled about today's Super Bowl! Since the Seahawks is playing the game there, everywhere in Seattle has been cheering them up with cool decorations and Seahawks fans are so ready for today's game! haha

GO HAWKS!!!!!

I finally, FINALLY can share an outfit on my blog with me wearing my favorite

TOPSHOP

pink coat

that I picked up this season!!!! Isn't it just to die for? I'd been dying to get a pink coat for myself simply because it's super cute and trendy, but I hadn't had the luck to find an ideal one for years. And then I found this

TOPSHOP

one

! This coat is incredibly warm and definitely helps me avoid Seattle's piercing chill. It is without a doubt an insanely lovely, stylish, and head-turning piece that is worth paying a little bit estra to own!! You have no idea how happy I was when it was arrived at my home after waiting for more than a month for it to arrive!!

This coat goes with any look from casual to classy. In the past I have paired it with an oversized tee, leather leggings, short boots and a beanie as my casual ensemble. On the other hand, I could wear it with a combo of a shirt, sweater, and midi skirt, finishing the look with a pair of fab heels to make it a more classy vibe.

For today's look, I decided to dress it up with a sophisticated look that features a bit of mens inspiration. Since I wanted to make the coat pop more, I kept my other colors muted  from head to toe. I really like the mix of mens-inspired items such as this

Free People

vintage-looking newsboy cap and the

H&M

oversized black blazer. These

NOWiSTYLE

tweed shorts

and

JustFab

khaki tote bag add an extra-sophisticated vibe to the look. I was really debating whether I should choose a pair of loafers to complete the mens-inspired ensemble or wear these platform heels. But I believe I made a right choice in the end.

I am also pleased with my decision to hung the fur collar scarf from the bag instead of actually wrapping it around my neck. It turned out to add a little twist and become a stunning winter accessory for the bag!

Hope you like/love how I styled my pink coat!!!

 I'd like to know how you would/did wear your pink or colored coat during this winter!

Have a warm and fashionable weekend ♥

Hi LOVEs!

If you live in a comparatively cold area, what kind of outfit could you choose that keeps you warm and snug while still being stylist? One of the outfit options could be to throw on a turtleneck. Don't you agree?

You see, turtlenecks definitely offer plenty of great styling opportunities -- they work when simply layering, they can be your featured statement piece, they can be paired with some head-tuner accessories, etc.... Now that's a flexible yet stylish piece of clothing!

I personally was not a big fan of the turtleneck, but I noted that they are currently one of the big hits this season. So I decided to try one out and incorporate it into an outfit. Guess what? I have been converted! Especially when the turtleneck is as fabulous as this oversized stripe knit is! I like the grey and blue combo, which is a pretty rare combination to me! This knit is actually REALLY oversized for me, so I tied it up around my waist with a beaded belt to make it a bit more fitting. Since I wanted to go for a playful yet intellectual look, I styled it up with a pair of fake glasses (my favorite one, btw!) and a bun. I couldn't resist adding a sense of edginess by wearing

these killer studded boots from

JustFab.com

! This knit itself is quite warm. However, I finished the look with a patterned scarf so that I could be extra cozy :)

How will you be wearing turtlenecks this season?

I hope you like my turtleneck ensemble and stay tuned for other looks featuring turtlenecks!

Enjoy your day
