On my Radar: Ankle Strap Booties
In the summer, ankle strap heels were trending. (I even bought a pair myself). They were an easy way to dress up what would otherwise be a plain or casual outfit. Now that Fall is approaching, the same ankle strap is here to stay but in bootie form. Here are some of my favorite styles that I’ve seen/come across online in my own search for…
On my mind: Fashion editorials
If you follow me on instagram you’ll notice I often post photos of editorials/photos that I like. The best kind of editorials are undeniably beautiful, transporting you to a different world, giving you a peek into another life. They also can inspire, striking a chord with you. I’ve decided that from now on, I’ll be posting full editorials here on the blog. To start off…
The Best and Brightest at Baublebar
Last night I stopped by the Baublebar pop-up shop in Soho for an evening of art, shopping and cocktails. Baublebar is one of the jewelry e-commerce sites I’ve been keeping my eye on so I thought it would be a great idea to “meet” the brand in person. Needless to say, it gave a great first impression.
To the Class of 2013: words from Fern Mallis
Ever wonder what a commencement speech at a Fashion School sounds like? Well, Fern Mallis- oh, just the woman who created Fashion Week in New York, shaping American culture and Fashion as we know it today-was our guest and Commencement honoree. I jotted down a few notes. (Yes, I wrote down notes in an actual notepad. (I practice what I preach!)) Although this isn’t her full speech,…
Front Row at MOCA NYC
Just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Canal Street in Chinatown you’ll find a quieter street with a hidden gem: MOCA NYC. Back in January, I visited MOCA for the first time to attend a panel, “Female, Fashionable, New York“, to hear perspectives of three Asian American women in the Fashion industry. This is when I found out that MOCA would have…
Talking with Tao Okamoto, model
I had the special opportunity to interview Tao Okamoto the other day for a freelance assignment. At first, when the person called me to do this the name didn’t register, but when I started to prepare for the interview I realized “DUH, TAO OKAMOTO!” She’s the established Japanese model who you’ve probably seen gracing countless runways, covers of Vogue, editorials and ad campaigns. Many of…
Memorable moments at the Met
After dinner one night over a year ago (sometime in January), my friend and I walked until we found ourselves in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art where we saw an elegantly dressed crowd exiting the museum. At the time, I had no idea anything happened afterhours at the Met (I guess I imagined something like those “Night at the museum” movies) so I…
If you haven’t already noticed (or I haven’t already mentioned), I like the color gold.
CNY Brunch at Bloomie’s
One lovely Sunday morning (February 10) amidst Fashion Week events and after the blizzard Nemo hit, I had the privilege of attending a private fashion brunch at Bloomingdale’s to celebrate the Chinese New Year. (See more photos after the jump!)
For my second day of fashion week I chose to go with not just a statement necklace but also a statement shirt. I thought this t-shirt would be perfect to wear for a day filled with strangers and fun.
