Ruffles and Velvet Pop

I have a devout dedication to monochromatic separates like an all-black ensemble on days when my sartorial senses aren’t up to par. There’s something about donning head to toe black that’s eminently wearable and chic, a look bound to withstand any fashion faux pas with its timeless appeal! To breathe…

Spring Day

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I…

Wander Over Wonder

In my photo shoot today, I wanted to relay the idea of slowing down our rite of passage in the working world and reflect on our thoughts and well-being. Like taking a stroll in the vast open land, I took refuge in the calmness of an early morning to rest, to recuperate, to think, to…

Black White and Loads of Gray Areas

Though the brooding days of Winter will soon come to a sedate halt, there’s a color combo I often resort to that doesn’t evolve with each changing season. The arsenal in question? Various shades of black, white and grey. What I love about the trio is that there are various ways to play up…

The Jumpsuit Project

With fashion trends that quickly come as they quickly go, have you ever thought about what makes a closet item a closet staple? Here are some ideas. Versatility. Infinite pairing. Sleek design. Maybe in a neutral shade too. From runway to real life, a fashion item that I’ve been loving this…

Maximize Minimalism – Street Style Edition

In this perpetually evolving fashion world, something about the mix and match of masculine and feminine pieces never cease to intrigue me. Oftentimes this androgynous “boy-meets-girl” street style edge is the staple of many powerhouse designs, ranging from Alexander Wang’s utilitarian cashmere sweater and distressed boyfriend jeans, to Givenchy’s signature gothic shirts that evoke a…

The Net Effect

Consider it a fashion accessory or a fashion faux paux, but fish nets are the latest sartorial street style trend to capture the hearts of many. Seamlessly able to add extra dimension to an outfit without being borderline garish, they are a “hole-ier than thou” force (total pun intended) to…

In Full Bloom

With the likes of fashion staples we gravitate to all year-round, certain fabrics we use to thread and weave garments also transcend space and time. One material that many of my fashion staples use is lace, which is an embroidered cutout design known for its classic and exquisite look. To add a blossoming spin to my business…

Valentine’s Day with Vosges Haut-Chocolat

Valentine’s Day. That gushy, “love is in the air” day when heart strings are tugged, bouquets are assembled, and chocolates are indulged. What started off as a day commemorating Valentinus (a Christian martyr who performed weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry in the 5th century) is now an occasion to splurge…

See + Eat: Harold Washington Library + Animale

Poet Carl Sandburg described Chicago as the “City of the Big Shoulders” in 1916, and the city carries that moniker proudly to this day. Having called Chicago my 3rd home (Bangkok –> Seattle –> Chicago) for over 4 years now, there are still many cultural and historical attractions I have yet to…

Well Vested

A wardrobe staple that’s in heavy rotation this season is a long vest. Cropping up everywhere from Alexander Wang’s monochrome sleeveless duster to Vera Wang’s unstructured, sequined drape, this trend can easily add a dash of class to any 9-5 outfit, whether or not you’re within the confines of a cubicle or home…

Capsule Wardrobe 101

Fashion is fleeting and fickle. Fashion is fun. It’s a perpetually evolving force to be reckoned with, and a trajectory of art in human form. Though no doubt fashion is partial to the sweeping “fresh factor”, as likened by innovative creative directors from Prabal Gurung to Prada at seasonal Fashion Week, there are…

Birthday Celebration – Staycation at Conrad Chicago

How do you normally celebrate your birthday? A get together, a special outing, or a trip to somewhere exotic perhaps? This year for my birthday I wanted to take a day off to relax, unwind, and explore without venturing far from home. Catering to my wanderlust-induced spirit without compromising quality…

A Classic Combo

New trends on the market are often loved for their high-time novelty. Yes, as fashion forward as seasonal trends may be, they rarely ladder up to cult status in my wardrobe. I often find myself retreating back to classic styles for their gratifying sense of purpose and practice — versatile for seasons to come, pair-able with wardrobe…

Walk Down Memory Lane 2016

2016. Saying goodbye to 365 days of lessons taught and learned, to moments of tears and laughter, to choices of holding on and letting go. A year where I’ve met people that made me laugh a bit louder and smile a bit brighter. A year where I fought hard for what…
