WATCH OUT FOR THIS WATCH!

WATCH OUT FOR THIS WATCH!

FEB 14th, 2018

Today I received my JORD watch, and opening it felt like Christmas! I haven’t been this excited to open a package in a while, and when I saw the packaging, it was love at first sight! So I got right into planning an outfit for it in order to post about it today for you – my beautiful styleright’ers.

With the stunning wooden textures, brown and rose golden colors, and handcrafted feel of the watch, darks were the way to go. And after swifting through my mess of a closet, one piece stood out to me – my brand new Free People Jumpsuit I got two weeks ago.  Continue reading

The retail fashion industry transition to internet makes more complex personal purchases like special occasion dresses easier every year. Finding the right outfit for a special occasion is less of a hassle.  With established online retailers of designer dresses you can find many more affordable prices for good quality.

WOOL SWEATER + JADE NECKLACE

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.

WELL SUITED

WELL SUITED

Jan 8th, 2018

First post of 2018! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. Mine was pretty good. We took 10 days to travel around California for some sunshine, as you can imagine what an Oregonian needs in winter time. The trip would be even better if the whole family wasn’t sick or getting over a sickness, but we had a great time nonetheless. We checked out Palm Springs, then took the kids to Disneyland and the San Diego Sea World & Zoo for the very first time. Our favorite activities were watching sea lion shows and checking out the zoo.

ALEX KREBS – RENOWN RENAISSANCE TANGUERO

ALEX KREBS – RENOWN RENAISSANCE TANGUERO

Dec 13th, 2017

The first time I met Alex Krebs was about 10 years ago. I was searching for an Argentine Tango dance teacher. A Google search quickly turned up Alex and his all-tango dance studio in SE Portland, Tango Berretin, a funky, bohemian space complete with dance shoes glued on the ceiling, a mate gourd collection, and tango artwork. I took lessons, was hooked, and joined and stayed in the community ever since.

Alex Krebs -1941

Alex is hard to define. He not only does many things, but also does them very successfully. He is a musician and physicist by education, and an Argentine tango teacher by profession. He directs two accomplished bands — a 14-piece Balkan Brass Band, The Krebsic Orkestar, and a tango sextet. He has been featured in the New York Times, OPB, Oregonian and other major media outlets for his craft and also his community building achievements. He has performed with the Oregon Symphony, released 6 tango albums, and has tango instructional apps. Students of his have even gone on to become notable Tango teachers, DJs, and organizers.  So who is he?

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A FASHION BLOGGER

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A FASHION BLOGGER

Dec.12, 2017

This is a documentary film made by @ZEREE STUDIO. Zeree Bao is a sophomore in Portland Art Institute, majoring in Film Making.

His final project of this school term is to create a documentary film of someone in his life that he worships or respects. By decomposing this person’s daily life, he gives a behind-the-scenes look into this person’s hard work and dedication. The goal is to tell a light-hearted story to spread positive energy and form a good example for others to follow.

A couple of weeks ago he came to me and asked whether I could be the person for this project. I was certainly honored and accepted the challenge!

Here is the documentary film that I hope you will like. Feel free to share your thoughts on this project with us. Zeree and I will be thrilled to hear your feedback.

Film starring: my blog photographer: Bassel Hamieh & myself. : )

I am also excited to announce that I will be kicking off a youtube channel. You will see more of my style, house, kids, and cooking… all come alive before your eyes! Make sure to subscribe now.

I also encourage you to share your feedback with me so I am always offering high quality content that meets your expectations. Let’s talk!
