DETOX

I promise you I have THE biggest sweet tooth ever (period.) My obsession with Macaroons can come close to my obsession with shoes (in which both are an expensive habit..one hurts the bank account the other hurts the waist). This thanksgiving week has been an overall indulgence in sweets..sweets…and more sweets. Besides that..my obsession with thigh high stockings which I have been using these nude thigh highs in alot of my shoots. Every gal needs to own a pair of thigh highs..its an instant pick me up in order to feel sexy. I must admit as much as I LOVE  Alber Elbaz I was not impressed for the Lanvin x H&M collaboration. (although I was VERY impressed with the marketing and promotion of the collection) I was sent several pieces (Thank you Katie! ) but the only piece that Im in LOVE with is this faux fur jacket..its absolutely perfect for any occasion! I guess Im just hard to please BUT word on the street says that VALENTINO x GAP..and I saw some of the pieces and omg..it just seems too good to be true. But then again im not buying into this hype of collaborations anymore. More than half the people that buy these pieces buy them to sell them on Ebay for twice the price. and what? People actually buy them! Anyways…I need to go on a Detox from macaroons & shoes.

RUNWAY TO EVERYDAY: Hermes

alot of gals have been asking me where I get my inspiraiton from when I dress myself every morning. I get my inspiration from many different places but as simple as it sounds I get most of my wardrobe inspiration directly off the runway. Seriously! I study each runway season like it’s the bible! Sometimes Runway shows make fashion seem unattainable or intimidating but i’m going to show yall how I get my fave runway looks and transform it into an everyday look… Lets call this chapter RUNWAY to EVERYDAY

Chapter 1: RUNWAY TO EVERYDAY:Hermes S/S 2011

Hermes Spring Summer 2011 collection was probably listed on my top 5 fave runway shows of this season. WHY? well they stayed true to their roots and used their own horsey heritage as their inspiration for this collection! From the Riding hats, riding boots, ultra high waisted pants, and sleek accessories..who wouldnt want to ride a hermes girl?

How I achieved this Look:

Pants: Alexander Wang High Waisted Tencel Sweatpants (These are so comfy u can sleep in them too!)

Blouse: Elizabeth and James

Belt: Long & Thin Zara belt looped around (this is an essential for this look…here is the LOOP IT tutorial)

Hat: Forever 21 Floppy hat

Watch: Michael Kors Rose Gold

Ring: Elizabeth and James Onyx Ring

Bracelets: House of Harlow

Boots Stuart Weitzman 5050 Over The Knee Boots

All I need now is my riding partna and my horsie!!

Dangerously Taking Over

How bad ass is that diamond ear cuff….who needs 1 diamond stud when you can get all 8 diamonds in one? Our dear friend Vin not only hooked it up with his sick beverly hills estate but also with millions of dollars worth of jewels. His jewelry boutique is in his mansion so we were able to lavishly go diamond shopping in the luxury of his home. Styled this look with some bad ass spiked louboutins,  the strongest shoulder padded blazer by Brian litchenberg, diamond earring cuffs by Vin Lee, studded dress by Zuhair Murad… i like my girls to be Dangerous. We we have 4 covers that will be coming out on stands within the next month! It’s been a good good year….like i said. Me and my gals are dangerous…Dangerously Taking Over.

Unforgettable, Indeed

So i’ve been eyeing this dress since it came out last seasons off the runway of Alexander Wang. This dress is the perfect example of pairing a strong silhoutte with a soft feminine lace detail. I love to feel sexy but I also hate to feel overtly & obviously sexy because its just too typical. what I love about this Alexander Wang mini dress…is that it’s not so mini from behind. From behind this dress atually looks like a long tuxedo coat because it has a coat tail! The off the shoulder lace details, with side pockets, long in the back, short in the front, the coat tail..OHHH EMMM GEEE..this dress is beyond perfection in my styling dictionary. And guess who picked it up from Neiman Marcus this past weekend??? :D I had the honor of being invited to the Koream Gala “Unforgettable”  along with women such as Ameriie, Lindsay price, and Grace Park. “Unforgettable”  is an award show recognizing all the accomplishments of korean americans in the entertainment industry. Tons of beautiful and talented people being awarded for their accomplishments and talents. This past weekend made me realize how proud I am of my korean heritage and also proud of fellow korean americans going out there pursuing and striving for their dreams! the Night…the event…the people….and of course my dress was Unforgettable, Indeed.
