WOOL SWEATER + JADE NECKLACE

Aside from fashion, my other passion over the last 10 years has been dancing Argentine tango. The look you are seeing in today’s post was shot when I attended San the Francisco Tango Marathon last November. (I know, it sounds so long ago already!)

Usually during a tango festival or marathon I dance day and night, meet friends for meals, get a bit of sleep, and don’t get to do much of anything else. But this time, I was very happy I took a half-day break from dancing, and went to Bernal Heights park for a photo shoot.

BURGUNDY VEST FOR FALL

BURGUNDY VEST FOR FALL

Nov 23rd, 2017

Today is Thanksgiving, so I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation.

First of all, I am very thankful for my husband providing the support and love that our family needs to fully function and grow. Ever since I started blogging, I have photo or video shoots almost every week. He often plays the role of both daddy and mommy during this time. I am also very thankful for my two loving boys showering me with their “infinite” love (according to them that is “how big” :>).

I am thankful for my loving friends who have provided tremendous support toward my blog’s success.

Last but not least, a big thanks to you, my blog readers/fans! You have shared your time and engagement to challenge or inspire me for betterment during this blogging journey.

Hello everyone! I hope you had a fun weekend, especially those of you celebrating Father’s Day. I am finally over my jetlag from my recent trip to China and am excited to share some posts about summer looks with you (just in time for the hot days ahead)!

Those of you who have been following me would know I had created a look with this ACNE STUDIO PINK VEST in a previous post:

Today, on my trip to the Pearl district to meet up with a friend, I modified the look a bit by changing to jean shorts paired with a over-the-knee boots. This is an example of my fashion/styling philosophy: being able to reuse a single piece of clothing to create multiple looks is one of the keys to being fashionable!

WEDNESDAY BLUE

WEDNESDAY BLUE

Apr 5th, 2017

Spring in Portland presents a challenge to dress correctly with ever changing weather, even on the same day.   Yet, I am so HAPPY the long cold winter is finally over!  Spring is calling for colors and this electric blue down jacket became my first choice for the day.  The light blue coat wasn’t planned in preparation for today’s look; but, the suddenly chilly windy day pushed its way in.
