I used to fancy a lot those polished “one-piece dresses” because they never require much of my styling effort. (I mean the 1 hour mix-and-match…) However, upon reaching the age where I must start learning how to financially support myself has made me realize that the one-piece dress is not worth my investment as much as the basic, separate pieces would do. Since then, I learned to embrace and enjoy the mix-and-match styling process much more than I would have realized the creative pleasure in it. I started to buy a lot more separate pieces of clothing instead of wasting my budget on some predictable one-piece dresses, cuz I might wear them once or twice and that’s it.. (fashion boredom is just a natural thing for girls and we simply can’t change it.) So here’s a quick solution — buy more separate pieces and always do the mix-and-match. Always.
A little note on “detailing”: The”detailing” is key to adding extra sparkle to our outfit. If you have been following my blog, you may have noticed that I am very fond of some simple designs yet adorned with the twisted, catchy or standout details. So here’s an outfit sharing some of my recent favorite detailing– dangling sleeves & silver hardware.
Ruffles, ruffles, ruffles. I see you everywhere this season! Although we’re always told not to have something over-done (like failingly wearing too much makeup or overly accessorizing yourself), I was thinking maybe just for once I could wear ruffles from Head-To-Toe.
Everytime I wear this long ruffle skirt, I couldn’t help remembering some of my old times on the dance floor where my feet were vividly striking the steps of a dramatic Paso Doble. Inside me there lives a dancer who always enjoys expressing herself freely and artistically without having to conform to what the world expects from her. How amazing it is when clothes can actually epitomize and express some of our inner parts?
Somewhere inside my styling mind along the transformation path from a girl to an independent woman lies a forcing signal that I should get rid of all the girly minidresses.
Hope that everyone who’s reading this blog right now had spent a great time in Valentines! For me this valentines feels really different yet special because I am no longer in a relationship, so I have decided to share a little of my inside world about being an independent individual after ending my 6-year relationship.
Whenever it comes to the beginning of September you start to see slender girls with perfect body and heights walking down high streets and occupying the balcony seats of some famous restaurants, then all we know that, Fashion Week is here.
This year I am lucky enough to work as a PR at the fashion week, and I can never deny that the whole event is simply amazing!
Due to the issue of working attire requirement me and my colleagues all need to dress in black, so I was actually thinking about how to make some fun and get rid of the impression of boredom that professional black attire usually gives people.
Well the whole key is easy – make it CHIC and SOPHISTICATED, and CLEAN – the usual and daily mortal that is always implemented in my daily style and clothing, effortless enough! right? :p
While I was bending backward trying very hard just to take a selfie with the Big Ben on the bridge, a photographer came forward and asked, ” Do you want me to take a picture for you?” His friendliness and courtesy as a local British quickly led me move away from the awkward state that I usually fall into with strangers, and my one-day tour visiting all the attractions surrounding London Zone 1 had by this way begun 🙂
All items in my closet lately has almost become black and white, it may be a little dull for usual days but I think it’s unexpectedly perfect for travel, especially in such a beautiful city London, it’s because you will never want to overshine the gorgeous backdrops in a picture. So when I knew that I was going to do sightseeing all day I chose to wear this outfit, simple but very chic.
Lastly, special thanks to my tourist guide and photographer again, Thank you Mush! I will see you next time !
well well since i am updating the blog using the computer of my school now in London, I got no Chinese typing option..sorry about that 😦
After a crazy week in Korea with my bestie Cherry, it’s time to work hard again!
Over the past few months I have been trying to save some money just for taking a short fashion design course here at Central Saint Martins, London, and that is from where I am sitting down and using the computer to update my blog! :p
But today I am not sharing any recent pics of me in London but some pictures which were taken by my another bestie, Polly, while I was having my final week in NYC last month. She’s been very interested in photography, so we kinda like teaming up and made fun for our day by taking lots of lots of pictures around NYC.
(Polly! I miss your uncle’s cooking! )
I will be updating more often once I get back to my home computer in Macao, and of course with Chinese version too!
Last but not least, I wish everyone has a great time in this very beginning of your summer holidays 🙂 Just like me, I am very much enjoying my stay in London 🙂 I find myself falling deep in love with London!!
Whenever I want to dress up to be feminine, the color of white will forever first pop up in my mind. Have you ever tried to dress up all in white? If not, please do! Dressing in all-white gives people an impression of purity, softness and extraordinary femininity. In fact I am finding my wardrobe being dominated by white-color clothes in recent months!
Also, being all in white is not the only choice. Try adding a little statement to your outfit, like here I am putting on a very pale pink jacket, which I think it still works well in terms of color tone, and still giving a sense of feminine softness to the whole look at the same time. And what if you are the kind of person who says NO to pink？Nevermind，making a contrasting statement instead by adding black to your outfit and make a silent statement with attitude.

Have you ever wondered how powerful can a simple black skirt be? For this year, getting an A-Line skirtis a must! I am sure it is not the first time you see me wearing this black skirt as you can see from the above pic. You can wear this skirt with any top that you like, and for me, I used to like to wear a really short cropped top with this kind of long skirt, but for this time I would like to show you how to rock this A-Line skirt in street style, especially with a pair of sneakers ( personally I really preferred Nike over NB) or flats and a high-collar top!
Hi everyone! I would like to dedicate a post which is entirely about the anniversary dinner with my boyfriend last month in a beautiful French restaurant uptown. As what I have said in my very first post, I do want to constantly sharing my wonderful life here in NYC with all of you. The dinner was absolutely divine for me with lots of great dishes and love air, and to be honest it was the first official French dinning I have ever had, so everything’s just going beyond fantastic! 🙂
