#CreateandCultivateDTLA- Keynotes

I talked a little bit about the activities and overall vibe of Create and Cultivate in my last blog post. In this blog post, I wanted to talk about the 3 keynote speakers. From what I know, this year’s conference was supposedly the biggest and best one yet, and the 3 keynote speakers certainly reflected that: Jessica Alba, Rachel Zoe and Chelsea Handler finished off the conference…

Editorial of the week: couture dreams

Ling Yue is a model I’m not too familiar with, but I quickly forget that upon scanning these photos from the October issue of L’Officiel China. Aptly titled couture dreams, the editorial entrances with dreamy haute couture looks from the Fall collections of Armani Prive, Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture and Chanel Haute Couture, just to name a few. Every photo is like a work…

Editorial of the week: Modern Day In the Mood for Love

Oh boy do I love a great fashion editorial. I came across this editorial on a blog, rolala loves (who seems to share my love for fashion editorials), and was instantly wooed, especially because it pays an elegant tribute to one of the most aesthetically beautiful movies I’ve seen: In the Mood for Love. Whether or not you’re familiar with director Wong Kar Wai’s work, you’ll love…

On my Radar: Pamela Barsky’s pouches

I was on my way to a cafe in Lower East Side when I decided I’d take a roundabout route. I’m rarely in the neighborhood so I figured why not? You never know. It was definitely a grittier neighborhood than what I’m used to. The streets were uneven and cracked, dirty puddles were everywhere and the streets were empty, even for 10 AM in the morning. As…

On My Radar: Donald “Drawbertson”

This image popped up on my newsfeed the other day and I was immediately smitten. How whimsical, fun and colorful! “Who made that!?” I wondered. Seeing drawings like these always brings me back to the days when I myself was doing fashion illustrations in school. My favorite medium was always gouache and watercolor although I always had difficulty controlling the medium. Donald Robertson, aka Donald “Drawbertson” seems to have…

Song Hye Gyo for J. Estina S/S 2014 Campaign

Song Hye Gyo is one of my favorite Korean actresses. Ever since I saw her acting alongside Won Bin (one of my favorite Korean actors) in the Korean drama Autumn in my Heart , I’ve been a fan both of her acting (she reduces me to tears) and inimitable beauty (she’s my height- 5’3)! Here she is effortlessly chic in J. Estina’s Spring/Summer 2014 campaign. Even…

It took awhile, but Spring has finally sprung! Nothing says Spring quite like florals. Pair that with some couture, and you have this beautifully styled fashion editorial, featuring model Ling Yue in the May issue of Elle Hong Kong.

Three Girls, Three Cities, Three Post-Grad perspectives

For those who graduated this month, CONGRATULATIONS! If you didn’t graduate this month and instead, you’re like me (yay class of 2013), thinking about how much has changed just within the last year since you graduated, this post is for you. Seeing all the posts and photos about graduation got me thinking: I wonder what some of my peers are up to? With that in…

Editorial of the week: JiHye Park for Manifesto

We all appreciate beauty in some way or another, but in this day and age, it’s not enough to be just beautiful . If you’re in it to win it, you need to be more than just attractive on the outside: you need something more than just looks. Even models aren’t an exception to this rule! With this in mind, here’s this week’s editorial featuring the lovely…

Editorial of the week: New York Travel

The book Crazy Rich Asians has been on my mind (when is it not?) so I figured it would be appropriate to share this editorial with you. Let’s flashback to “New York Travel” which was taken for GQ China in November 2009. Even though this was taken 5 years ago (believe it or not), it is still relevant and even more prevalent today. I especially love…
