SHOP MY IG: SIDE-SLIT BOOTIES (JEFFREY CAMPBELL DUPES)

Hey, just a quick post to highlight the booties I recently posted on IG. These super cute side-slit ankle boots are the perfect dupe for Jeffrey Campbell Cromwell booties. I should say that I’m very selective when it comes to dupes. I think a beautifully designed and sexy shoe is worth the splurge (eg, Christian Louboutin Pigalle), but sometimes I’ll find a very lovely version of the more expensive brand and just can’t justify spending the extra $100-$500 for the designer label. And that’s why I share … Continue Reading »


KOREA DENIM JACKET AND SHANGHAI KICKS

Happy April! I hope you had a nice start to the cruelest month. No April Fool’s pranks here. Just been enjoying nice weather and lazy days. No complaints.

LATE BLOOMER: TRANSITIONING INTO SPRING WITH CAMO AND WINE

Hello and happy Spring! After a few days of glorious warmth and sunshine, early Spring showers in LA are making me reach for the OTK boots and longline sweatshirts that I thought I could put away for the season. This olive and wine (and of course black) color palette is one of my favorites, and I’ll wear it all year long even though it reminds me of gluhwein and Christmas time. But adding a pop of pink or blush can lighten up burgundy and maroon tones … Continue Reading »


SHOP MY IG: OPEN SHOULDER SWEATSHIRT AND CUT-OFFS

Hi! Just a quick post to say hello and to give the deets on shopping one of my recent IG posts. I got a lot of love for this sweatshirt. It’s a basic grayish taupe sweatshirt, but oh so soft! And the round cutout neckline/open shoulder design is perfect for someone like me who doesn’t want to bare too much shoulder. These inexpensive sunnies are awesome. I have trouble finding shades that fit my puffy Asian face, but these have nose clips and … Continue Reading »


NOT GUILTY OF SKATER FASHION APPROPRIATION

Hello! So I wasn’t going to write a blog post about the last “skater-inspired” casual ootd that I posted on Instagram, but I started feeling like I had better write something about skate wear and the ongoing appropriation of skate culture in fashion. In case you weren’t aware, for the past couple of years the fashion world has been obsessing over skateboarding culture. Brands and models have been borrowing skate looks and Thrasher logos for photo shoots and runways, and boards have become the … Continue Reading »
