Black & White




These pictures were taken sometime in August (a while ago, I know!!!) and I never really got around to posting them. I'm wearing the Wallis leather trimmed blazer that I wore a couple posts ago for the Wallis fashion blogger contest. This is how I transitioned the blazer into fall; adding some knee-high boots and leather shorts and keeping the color scheme black and white for a classic look. 

I don't really wear much jewelry at all on a normal basis or even on the blog. However, I do really love statement pieces like this necklace! I'd take one big, sparkly statement piece over small little pieces any day!

Baby Blue




I'm loving this minty pastel blazer from Choies! I'm clearly not over pastels, even though it's now Fall....but pastels can be a year round thing right? :) I layered the blazer over a printed blouse,leather shorts, and studded heels for this look, trying to play with darker tones and more "fall-like" textures. Toughening up the soft pastel color is an easy way to make an otherwise Spring/Summer stable work for Fall!

Cat Eyes::Pinkicon Circle Lens Review



A few weeks ago, I was sent a pair of circle lenses courtesy of Pinkicon. For those of you who aren't familiar with circle lenses, they're a type of contact lens that is super popular in Asia. They come in various colors and usually have an enlarging effect on the iris.

For this post I was sent a pair of lenses from the brand GEO in fire cat grey (you can find them here). I've never had the chance to wear circle lenses before this, though I've worn regular colored contact lenses in the past. In comparison to the normal "American" contact lenses, the circle lenses were much larger (mine were 15mm in diameter!). I really loved the grey color and thought they blended well with my eyes and they were quite comfortable as well. I could comfortably wear them all day without irritation.

Another difference between these lenses and regular contacts is that they last for 6 months with proper care, while regular contacts last around 2 weeks. So, while they seem expensive ranging from $20-$50 per pair, they do last a lot longer than normal contacts.

For those of you that want to try them out, Pinkicon has kindly provided a discount code! You can get $6 off any purchase of $25 or more with the code below! Go check them out!

Little Rebel :: Rose Royce Ambassador



Denim and leather is really the perfect combination. In this post, I'm wearing a denim vest from a new denim brand called Rose Royce. I've never really worn a denim vest before, so styling it was a little more difficult than I thought it would be. When in doubt, I generally go for more simple looks, and decided to wear it with my leather shorts. However, I think it'd look equally cute over a skirt or a dress!

I'm participating in yet another contest, this time in collaboration with Rose Royce Denim. Please vote for me to become their new brand ambassador on the official Rose Royce Facebook Page! You can vote once an hour and I'd be ever so greatful if you all voted for me! :)

Basics :: Wallis Competition



I'm participating in another Wallis competition! This time, it's focused on showcasing the best "transitional style" from summer to fall. I chose this black blazer, since no matter what season, a black blazer is always a good choice. While last summer, I was all about pretty dresses and frilly skirts, this summer I found myself dressing more laid back. Denim cut-offs became my go-to staple, which I like dressing up with some sky high wedges and a blazer. Blazers (even in black!) can definitely work for summer, by keeping everything else fresh and light.

I'd be so so grateful if you could vote for me in the Wallis Competition here!

Stay tuned for my second outfit featuring this blazer in a look for Fall!!

Cutouts and Florals



I love this dress! The floral print is very sweet and charming, but the dress also has a subtly sexy vibe thanks to the deep v-neck and side cutouts. This dress seems to be everywhere this summer and I can totally see why! Dressed up with heels or dressed down with flats and a denim jacket, I think this dress is so versatile and can be worn in so many different ways!

Undone :: Embellished Sweatshirt and White Jeans



Dressing it down with some white jeans and an embellishes sweatshirt. I really love how a great pair of heels can take a simple, casual outfit to a whole different level and make it seem more....polished? That, some red lipstick, and my signature "half tuck" make me feel like my outfit is less sloppy and more polished! :)

Bat Your Lashes:: Model 21 Review



Hi Everyone!!

It's been a while since my last post since I was studying for finals and writing term papers and such, but I'm finally back to blogging!

I was sent a box of False Eyelashes by MODEL 21 to try out a few weeks ago, and to be honest, it was my first foray into false lashes. I've probably only worn false lashes once before I got these, even though I've always loved how false lashes look on other people. Since receiving these, I've tried a few other brands, and can safely say that these are BY FAR my favorites. The MODEL 21 lashes are so comfortable to wear and are really easy for beginners, like myself, to put on since they're very flexible and mold to your eye shape easily. I also like that they come in a box of 10! A beginner needs all the practice they can get right?? :)

By the way, I'm wearing the #63 lashes. They aren't as dramatic as some of the other styles are and I think they're really good for "everyday" type situations! What are your thoughts on false lashes???

Cold Shoulder



I guess I have a thing for monochromatic dressing these days! Something about it seems very effortless, while still remaining put together and chic at the same time. 

So, I re-dyed my hair by myself last week and I'm really loving how vibrant it turned out! I've had quite a few hair colors in the past, but I think red is definitely my favorite! What do you guys think?

Double Sequin



Hi Everyone!

Here's an outfit I put together last weekend with the shorts I got from Choies. I was really having a hard time finding something to wear with them, since they are quite sparkly, but I decided to play up the sparkliness with my white Sugarlips button-down that coincidentally also has sequins on the cuffs and under the collar. I do love my sparkle! :)

Monochrome



The weather here is ever-changing lately. One day it's soaring in the 90's and the next it's pouring rain in in the 60's. In an attempt to escape the heat last week, I dressed down to leather short shorts and a cool, airy top. I did get a couple funny looks wearing this outfit though! I think people were wondering if I was wearing pants or not! That's what I get for monochromatic dressing!  Haha :)

Hope you all have a nice Wednesday!

Sweater Skirt






So, I had been eyeing this skirt for quite some time because of its unique print/color combination and its super soft sweater-like construction. While browsing the Club Monaco website the other day, I was so excited to see it on sale! I dropped by the store the same day, just to see if they would have it, and got the last one in my size!!!! Can you say "meant to be"?  :)

Four Twenty Two



I have this obsession with leather everything lately. These shorts from Zara are perfection! I love that they're not the typical black leather that you normally see, not to mention the super short cut.

These sunglasses are from Firmoo. I have a couple pairs of their prescription glasses and really had no idea that they also sold sunglasses. These are pretty cute I'd say!


Have a fantastic Monday!!!

Bomber Jacket



This jacket has been a staple in my closet for the past month! I literally throw it on over any/every outfit whether it be with a skirt, shorts, or jeans. I love the embroidered detailing on the back as well as the gold zippers and leather shoulders.

Fire Engine Red



Hi everyone! 

How chic is this red blazer from Wallis? I paired it with a peach top, which is kind of a risky color combination  but it seems to work! I love how versatile this blazer is--perfect for a day at the office or a night out on the town! 

I was recently asked to be a part of Wallis' contest to pick the first US Blogger Ambassador for their brand.  After seeing their amazing clothes, I of course jumped at the opportunity!
 Please vote for me on the Wallis Facebook Page!

Have a great week!

Spotted



Spring feels like it's finally here! It's been consistently warm enough to wear shorts lately, which is such a nice change from the never ending cycle of jeans that I've been wearing on a daily basis. I bought these shorts last Spring and you can see how last styled them here. I really love this particular pair, as they can be dressed up or down. Such a classic piece.

Double Leather



Leather on leather? I wasn't so sure about it at first, but I really do like how it turned out. It seems like a very "model off duty" type look, but is also very rocker chic as well. I wore my Zara heels to add a pop of color to break up the black and white look.

Velvet and Sequins



I fell in love with this skirt the moment I saw it hanging in the Club Monaco store. The beading and sequins, the color, the silhouette,....it's all so perfect! I paired it with a sheer Club Monaco blouse that I'm equally enamored with. Somewhat of a mixed prints/mixed texture look. Hope you like it!

Hsi Lai Temple



I've been meaning to post these pictures from my visit to the Hsi Lai Temple for a while now. Better late than never, right? :)
I visited the week before Chinese New Year and was really amazed at all of the decorations and displays that they were putting together all by hand! My favorite is the tree with the golden leaves.

Enjoy the pictures!

Chinese New Year




Chinese New Year was this past Sunday! This is what I wore to celebrate with my family. Of course I chose to wear red for luck and to be festive! :)

Stripes and Leather



Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had fun celebrating over the holidays! :)

These pictures were taken a few weeks ago, before the holidays and well before the temperature decided to drop to 37 degrees! I'm praying it warms up a little since my native Southern Californian-ness is dying in this freezing cold weather!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these boots! I showed them to you all on Instagram a while back, and this is what they look like on. A great affordable version of these Givenchy ones.....AND they're super comfy too!
