Hello everybody! I am back from my quick trip to London for the 2018 London Fashion Week. I finally caught up on my sleep and am excited to share pictures and stories of my experience. Stay tuned for upcoming posts! In the meantime, I have a late winter Portland snow event series for today.
Since this winter had been milder than normal in Portland, I was thinking “will it not snow this winter entirely?” And then it snowed. I guess my call to the universe was heard. : )
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
WOOL SWEATER + JADE NECKLACE
Jan 18th, 2018
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
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.
FASHIONXT | NIGHT 3
Nov 17th, 2017
Deciding on what to wear at a fashion show could be tricky. The pressure to piece something together that will leave an impression can be overwhelming. After the classic look for opening night, the casual look for night 2, my team and I decided I should go for a change.
Meeting winner of Fashion Accessory Competition: Nuciano
As one of three judges for this year’s Fashion Accessory Competition, I was happy to meet one of the designers I voted for, Nuciano. She specializes in handcrafted bespoke clutches with authentic swarovski crystals. I had fun talking to her, learning how she finds inspiration for her designs and how she made each bag uniquely beautiful.
FASHIONXT | NIGHT 2
Nov 3rd, 2017
As I was getting ready for second night of FashioNXT, I couldn’t stop myself from reliving the moments from the opening night. Even though I was sleep deprived from dancing till 2am, I still couldn’t wait to see what night 2 of FashioNXT was about to unfold.
By second night, I was a bit more relax with my look and my interaction with people. I decided to wear something lighter color and casual. I ended up with this Proenza Schouler white top and COMME des GARCONS grey shiny pant. I paired it with my recent favorite Cult Gaia bamboo bag.
Dancing the night away
My friend Alex , who is also my first Tango teacher, came and joined me at the After Party. Between Alex, my photographer and I , we had our mini dance party within the big party. We even danced Tango to the music that DJ was playing that night.
Designer Highlight: Myriam Marcela
WILD WOMAN was name of the collection being shown that night. It is a collaboration project between Fashion designer Myriam Marcela (left in below pic) & Textile Artist Laura Renée Maier (right in below pic).
Together, they create a touring exhibition of a contemporary film and wearable art pieces to be auctioned across the world with one hundred percent of the proceeds going to invest in women in Latin America.

Friday always adds excitement for me, especially on a sunny day. I have been working really hard the last couple of weeks. As a result, my post today is short so I can enjoy the precious Portland late fall sun.
