Gift Guide for the Fashionista || Gift Guide for Her

Hello Hello,

Because the holiday is upon us, I’ve decided to gather up a gift guide idea for you. This gift guide is for that fashion girl in your life.

I think the difficult part about getting a gift for a friend who is fashionable is that that person usually has a certain style or knows what s/he likes. However, that shouldn’t discourage you in getting some fashion-related gifts.

I’ve put together 10 gift ideas you can get for your fashion friend. Of course, these are only ideas for inspirational purposes only.

Dresses for the Holidays || Holiday Dresses

Hello Hello,

I can’t Halloween is over and November is here. The holiday season is in full swing. Today I want to share with you four dresses for the Holidays. These dresses are for inspirational purposes. I know everyone celebrates different holidays and/or celebrate holidays differently. I think that’s a cool thing about this season: every family has their own little traditions (or starting new ones).

Yes, you can rock that white dress even in winter. I love the extra ruffles on this white shirt dress. I added a black beret and black leggings to wrap the outfit together. This dress, I think, is great for those work/office holiday parties where you don’t want to overdress. But this white ruffled dress is great for any occasion! READ MORE

The Menswear-Inspired Shoes || Oversized Checked Blazer & Loafers

Hello Hello,

We are well into half of October, and like every month, I have no idea where this month went. I can’t believe we’re half way through it already! Nonetheless, more fall fashion heading your way. (Because after Halloween, it’s all about the holidays and new year).

Today, the menswear-inspired shoe everyone should own, or at least consider owning: the loafers. I seriously love loafers so much. I have 3 YouTube videos dedicated to ways to style loafers: watch here, watch here, and watch here. (Yes, all different loafers in all the videos. Most of them are also thrifted!! Which is a huge plus in my book).

For this look, I went for a minimalistic fall outfit. I started with a pair of black pants and a white tee. Black pants and white tee is a very basic starting point for any outfit mixing. (It looks great on its own too). Then I topped the outfit with an oversized checkered blazer. I love the vintage-vibe and menswear-inspired elements of the blazer. The checkered blazer is printed, but the colors are quite muted so while the blazer is a statement piece, it is not too loud. I finished with a pair of black patent leather loafers (similar here). (The newest pair to my loafer collection).

I’ve also featured loafers on my blog before. So it only makes sense to give you 4 reasons why you should also get a pair of loafers. READ MORE

2 Things I learned After College || Bridesmaid Dresses Series 4

Hello Hello

This is part 4 of my Bridesmaid dress series where I showcase my bridesmaid dresses I’ve worn for weddings and reflect on my younger self. You can read part 1 (here), part 2 (here), and part 3 here. This series has been nostalgic for me, and hearing your feedback has been lovely.

For this fourth part, I will be reflecting on 2 things I learned post-graduation (so somewhere between 22-23). (Part 1 was a letter to my 13 year-old self, part 2 was what I would tell my 18 year-old self, part 3 was 2 Things I Learned Entering my 20’s).

This green mint chiffon dress I wore to my friend’s wedding. I think this might be my only mint dress from this series. And as usual, I will also include a bridesmaid tip & some pink dresses at the end.

Striped Button-Up & Red Pants || The Final Quarter

Hello Hello,

It’s only September. But we’re well into the final quarter of the year 2017! Can you believe it?
Like, where did this year go? I feel like I didn’t accomplish anything. (Though I’m sure I did quite a lot).

Plus, when I walk into stores, most of them are already decked out with holiday decorations. Halloween is definitely up-front-and-center, but I see those Thanksgiving and Christmas decor hanging around in their own little corners just waiting to be put out.

Nonetheless, let’s talk about one thing that will be everywhere this fall season (and going into winter).

The color Red.

Red is going to be more than just a holiday color this final quarter of the year. It’s actually one of the colors of the season. Which only makes it appropriate to bring out these red pants (similar here and here). READ MORE
