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.

Spring is finally here!! When the sun comes out in Portland, the city comes alive! My photographer and I decided to take a short trip out of the city to McMenamins Edgefield.

I finally felt warm enough to wear a dress without tights or stockings to showcase  a knit dress from THREE FLOOR.  Apart from classic B & W, I also love the details of this dress: the an open-weave neckline, asymmetrical details, fringe and uneven hem.  Since the dress has a lot of volume, apple or pear shaped bodies may want to think twice.  Continue reading

Although  I am geared up for spring looks, Portland’s recent March snow inspired another winter look today. : )

NW 23rd ave, Nobhill area,  has always been a favorite street for a stroll.  Somehow the street puts me in the mood for a European look to match the atmosphere. Today, I was going for a little French flair as you already knew. : ) Continue reading

We love the teachers there so much! They are so attentive and loving beyond their excellent educational competency. Hongbao gala is the school’s big fund raising event, so we go every year. Yes, the cute kiddo in below picture is my lovely son. : ). Continue reading

italian-silk-maxi-dress-over-black-sweater-2297I don’t know about you, but I have been getting a bit bored with my typical winter look–A cute, comfy sweater over jeans or miniskirt with a coat, or a sweater dress with over-the-knee boots with coat. Those were my typical winter looks and I was dying for a change.

In preparation for meeting a friend downtown at Kimpton Vintage Hotel, I spotted this silk maxi dress.  Some may recall from my 10-year anniversary celebration party (as seen in the below picture).  With spring is approaching, adding a bit of “flowy-ness” to welcome spring seemed appropriate to get out of the winter funk!  Thus, an experiment with silk maxi dress over a black  sweater with grey wool capri pant.

I can’t believe it has been so long since my last post. I thought I was just taking a holiday break. But then it was just one episode after another……I am happy now I am back and ready to reconnect with all of you again!!

As a styling blogger , one thing that I am very conscious about is whether my readers/fans will get tired of seeing me all the time. I tend to make efforts to have some other faces every once a while to give you a break. Some of the faces you saw in the past are my clients who worked with me for styling, some are just friends, some are Style Right team members. In today’s post, I went out for a girl’s night with 3 of my girl friends. Continue reading
