Don't Be Afraid To Show Your Vulnerable Side

Last week I decided to share my tale - REAL LIFE - on my InstaStory. I was really scared and nervous because I thought no one would care about it or would even wanna see it. But, I simply wanted to share what I have been struggling with in my life. Then, here is what happened...

Playing With The Prints // Stripes & Florals

Spring and summer are all about playing with bold colors and fun prints. And mixing patterns is always a fun way to make your look unique, interesting and stand out.

Hi LOVEs!!!! Happy FriYAY!
I think it's great way to end my crazy week and start off the weekend by sharing my favorite look with you guys! There is always such saying "A girl can never have enough stunning dresses in her closet!" I am completely up for that, and this Balmain x H&M dress strikes me and is a rock star of all the dresses I have! To my surprise, the collection was much more popular than last year, and this dress was the last one left on the rack, even my regular size were gone in a few minutes! How crazy, huh? I am extremely happy to get my hands on a dress from the collection and so glad to end up owing this number.
I feel like a super woman in this dress - so bold, so fierce, and so seductive. How the color-block is designed is what makes this dress so one-of-a-kind! I look utterly hot from every angle, check out the gold back zip detail all the way across the dress!!! The shoulder part is in the boxy shape, which is great for someone who has narrow shoulders like me. I added a black belt with the gold accented buckle to help definite my frame and finished it off with a pair of platform booties.

I was able to score this gorgeous statement rhinestone earrings from the collection as well, and they go just so perfectly with the dress! They are really eye-catchy and striking, thus wearing this earrings will give such a memorable accent to all my holiday parties down the road! Shiner, the better! Bigger, the better!! I decided to style my hair in high ponytail so that I could stylishly showcase the amazing detail of the dress as well as how superb the earrings are!
By the way, I am kind of a girl who always carries a pair of sunglasses wherever I go. My current favorite ones are Prada Cinema via DITTO where you can rent designers sunglasses for only $24/month until whenever you want to. Here is a special code that you can get your first month for free : AIKASLOVECLOSET!!! I hope you can find the pair you have kept your eyes on there! ;)

Cheers to the amazing weekend, my sweeties!

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!!! 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!
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!
So...today is actually the official day of fall!!!! Whoo hoo! Are you guys all excited? It's time for a lot of layers and Spice Pumpkin Latte and Salted Caramel Mocha! (My favorite coffee for the season!) Oh and you can't forget about hats, too! Well... at least to me!
I can't believe that we only have few more months left this year, I feel like I just celebrated 2014 a couple of months ago. Time definitely flies, but let's enjoy each moment of your life with smiles <3

Today's look is something that I've always wanted to try for a long time, but it seemed to never happen till now!
Yes, ALL BLACK ensemble!
Since Fashion Week is still going on, and that keeps me so excited thinking of what I would want to wear even though I obviously can't go. Then, this looks was came up in mind as I was looking through for some inspirations, and I love it so much!
You know, I am more of a color-lover, but an all black ensemble never lets you look unstylish and adds a lot of sophistication and edginess. On top of that, I RARELY wear flats, so another new thing here is 'how to rock in them.' To achieve that, I tried to draw attention away from my short legs by wearing a hat and a cropped top and showing off a bit of my stomach. Also wearing all black or same hues helps to create "I line" silhouette to look slimmer and elongate your leg lines. A pop of color is always a great addition to compliment your look. I decided to pair it with this gorgeous statement drop earrings (They are really heavy by the way, but that's not discouraging me to wear them at all!) and my current favorite fall red lips, SANDRA from NARS Audacious Lipstick collection.

I hope I can try all black attires again this fall and winter because it's just really fun to put together! How would you rock the outfit?

On my personal note, I am going to Robert Leonard Salon & Spa this afternoon to get my hair done and also to try out other severs they offer! I am sooooo thrilled for the new change of myself, just in time for the season change! In case you wonder, please follow me on Instagram to see what will happen there!

Have a lovely day, sweeties

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! 

Please check my latest feature on

You Next Dress

Have a warm and fashionable weekend ♥

Hi LOVEs! Happy Monday :))) Did you all have a wonderful weekend??
Last Friday I went to my friend's farewell party. It was such a blast <3 Not only did I met tons of new  people, we partied and had an amazing time until freaking 7am!!!! She is from Taiwan. We don't get to hang out all the time, but we both know we are good friends. She has been supporting my fashion and dreams for a while and whenever she sees me, she always gives me lots of compliments on my outfit! We always end up talking about old fond memories, and  how we've both grown up since then...
You know, I love living in America because I know my life belongs here. I feel like the dreams I have only make since in America. Nonetheless, one of the hardest moments is saying good bye to my beloved friends that leave/will leave the states. I never get used to that. Anyway, I was so pleased to see her for the first time in a long time. Especially right before she is moving back. I wish her all the best because she also has her dreams in Japan!!!! :)


________________________________



I believe that you are very familiar with this fabulously amazing jumper!! It's one of the popular collection pieces from Isabel Marant x H&M last year. Ever since I've brought this one, I've never stopped loving it!! haha
This jumper is seriously a standout winter essential. It looks warm and cozy while being extremely stylish! I paired it with a denim mini skirt and leopard boots, for a more casual look. If you have seen my fall/winter outfits, you might notice that my outfits can't be completed without HATS! I am kinda sad that it covers up the saved side though. This lovely navy military cap is also my pickup from the collection, and I am so in love with it! Just the hat itself has the french vibe. So adding it to any outfit can effortlessly upgrade your look.
Don't shy away from the pastel colors this season!! Pastel pink is my current obsession! With it, I added just right amount of the sweetness to my bag, and a different pink to my lippie.
I really like this look because it combines both casual and chic feeling in it!


Hope your new week is going well!
As always thanks for stopping by!
