Please don't be in love w someone else







Charlotte Russe Bow-Front Cropped Tube Top
Michael Kors MK2283 Mercer White Dial Quartz
Nasty Gal (similar) Fox Gold Chain
Forever 21 Nude Secret Rebel Pumps


About the outfit:
Hi friends! I want to share with you my new favorite summer colors: Pink, white, and gold. I love this outfit combo because it's so girly and daring. I found this adorable bow top at Charlotte Russe and it reminds me of Sailor Moon uniform (FYI I'm a huge Sailor Moon fan).  This by far is one of my favorite crop tops I have in my closet! On a cooler summer day, I will wear this with a long cardigan and pair it with my high waist skinnies from Daily Look. Have a great rest of the week! 

More outfits coming soon.

This was also another shoot taken by the very awesome Ryan Chua in San Francisco downtown. Thanks Ryan! I feel extra girly in this adorable tube dress and super preppy in this bright green color! Definitely a cute dress to wear to a semi-formal gathering. Aside from the MK watch (a special gift from my dear sister!) and the bracelet on my left arm, the rest of the accessories are from Charlotte Russe.

About the outfit:
Hi friends! I am so excited to share this post with you! I got to meet and shoot with the very talented Ryan Chua. We had an amazing time hanging out in San Francisco downtown and taking these fantastic shots! I feel so lucky and rewarded to make friends with someone who is just as passionate as I am about fashion and photography. (Ryan, if you are reading this: Thanks for making me feel so beautiful! xoxo) Prior to meeting up, I got to visit my sister in San Jose and went on a huge shopping spree in Zara. This dress makes me feel extremely sophisticated and ready to kick some butt in the professional world. On top of that, I feel very Kim K in this style. Hope you guys like it!

Heaven led me to you










 ARDOUR Live a Little Criss Cross Crop
Daily Look Black High Waist Skinnies
Forever 21 Nude Secret Rebel Pumps
Etsy Layered Initial Necklace
ARDOUR My Goddess Mint Cuff

About the outfit:
Hi friends! Recently started dancing and been meaning to try out new poses and angles for my photos. My goal is to build more flexibility so I can do elegant shots more confidently! :) If you are a fan of the World Cup, you might have noticed that this post is taken place in a mini outdoor soccer court. (I'm a huge fan for team Germany, who do you root for?)

In this post I want to highlight two of my favorite pieces from ARDOUR: The sexy statement criss cross crop complimented by the unique cut out mint cuff! Special thanks to my amazing design friend, Celina Suh, for introducing this fabulous boutique and giving me the opportunity to also model for her ARDOUR T-Shirt design.

For the remainder of the outfit, I went with a more casual approach on a pair of black high waist skinnies and simple nude pumps. To flatter the fabulous top, I'm wearing my everyday necklace from Etsy to add some sparkle to the outfit! Also, questions on my hair! Without bleach, my hair is colored with a brown-red tone at the top-middle and a violet-red tone at the bottom, achieving the ombré red look. Please visit Salon Lullaby if you are near the DC/Va area and be sure to ask for Ling. She will take great care of you. :)

Thank you again for visiting and I hope you find my photographs inspiring and tasteful! More updates next time in Seattle :)

Let me be your motivation


 F21 Tiny Flower Halter Top
Garage/similar High Waist White Denim Shorts
H&M/similar White Chiffon Kimono
Daily Look Over The Knee Ribbed Socks
UrbanOG Suede Lace Up Ankle Booties
F21 Standout Faux Leather Carryall Purse

About the outfit:
Hi friends, sorry for the hiatus! I've been super busy balancing work/life lately, it has been a crazy month of hair coloring, switching gym membership to dance classes, and traveling from East to West and back and forth. That being said, I am back now and I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day and enjoying the lovely weather everywhere. :)

Getting back to doing some snaps for my blog. I want to present you my latest style. This post is all mixing and matching neutral colors and my new kicks! I want to show off these new lace up shoes I got from a very trendy and inexpensive online shoe retailer: UrbanOG. I'm marking these shoes as a must-have because they are practical and stylish for any outfit (skinny pants, circle skirts, high waist shorts, and the list goes on)! I can't believe I didn't find them before. 

For the rest of my look, I just need to say that kimonos are off the hook this season-- you cannot go to a store and not find kimono style jackets begging for your attention. I personally love H&M's white chiffon kimono-- a great addition to wear over my new favorite backless crop top. (You should be able to find just about any chiffon or sheer kimono jackets in other stores or online.) Speaking of the origin of my super fun backless top, F21 has been doing a better job at their handbag designs despite their lack of high quality (Yes I'm aware that they are usually design copies of luxury brands)-- However, my new F21 white purse has the most ideal size for ladies to carry and it is both work and play appropriate. The quality is not bad as faux leather goes. Most importantly I can fit all the things I need in this purse such as my mini Macbook Air, my gigantic Kate Spade wallet, my phone, my magazines, etc. -- so SO many things. All special thanks to Céline for inspiring luggage style bags (If you haven't seen my post on Céline, please click here).

After taking some snaps for the blog, my very talented photographer bestie and I went to get some delicious soups from Cosí--

I'm a clam chowder lover! Obviously didn't have enough in Seattle (sarcasm)
The multigrain bread they sell is probably the best bread I've had in a chain restaurant and I'm being very serious about this :0

On other news, I'm heading back to Seattle again this Sunday and I can't wait to see my friends there. :) They are my family. I'm very thankful for all the things I have in life at the moment, including my blog and how much it has changed. For anyone that is reading, I just want to say thank you very much for visiting and I hope you find my style and photographs inspiring and tasteful! Stay tuned for more updates coming soon... :)
