It’s hard for me to digest the fact that we will be ringing in the New Year withing the next 24 hours! I wish I was able to load this video up earlier so yall had more time to find your fancy NYE dress, but i’ve been experiencing MAJOR technical difficulties here in Taiwan. I hope that you will find some inspiration thru this video to bring in the new years with style! I’m a fond believer in “How you start something is how you finish it!” and vice versa. So lets end the year glamorously and ring in the new year with lots of style! Hope you enjoy this STYLE COUNTDOWN video I made for you!

Today we traveled  5 hours up the mountain to arrive at the beautiful Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan. I cannot tell you how ecstatic I am to be spending the next couple of days here at the LaLu Resort & Hotel…one of the most beautiful & exquisite hotels in the world! Our view over here is to die for …Will be updating you with pictures of my stay here in the next blog post!!

Also will be uploading the New Years Eve countdown tutorial tomorrow too!!! Lots of goodies in store for you! For now here’s the rest of the outfit from yesterday’s post! Not sure if you’ve noticed but i’ve been obsessing with the burnt color-burnt rose, burnt orange, burnt red, hence- the burnt bench in the background! hahah

Hope it’s beautiful where you are!

I hope you all had a magical holiday with your loved ones! I am writing to you from a land far far away here in asia. Today we traveled down to the tropical south of Taiwan…who knew that the weather would be in the 80s here and I would be sippin on a pina colada traipsing around our beachfront hotel? This past week has been filled with adventures…we started from FREEZING (-15 degrees) Korea, then to semi cold Taipei weather (50 degrees), and now in the tropics (80 degrees).

As the year is coming to an end I cannot stop thinking about all the lovely moments we’ve spent together here on my blog, youtube, twitter, & facebook. It’s been wonderful being able to share my daily inspirations and glimpses of life with yall! While there will be many more wonderful things to come in the new year, I just wanted to let you guys know that I am Thinking Of You from a land far away!

A Little Mich&Chris Bromance

posted by on 2011.12.23, under In The Life Of

It was exactly 1 year ago from today when Michelle Phan and I partnered up and started our ever so exciting journey together on youtube! We’ve escalated our relationship from merely being business partners to what we can now call best friends! She always challenges me and pushes me to my limits (which I appreciate!). We know when to  to turn it “on” for business and turn it “off” when we just need to vent & get loose! We’ve had one amazing & crazy year together and it’s exciting to know that this is just the beginning of our journey!

“Friendship isn’t about whom you have known the longest… It’s about who came, and never left your side…”

ok ok i’ll stop with the bromance…but HAPPY 1 year ANNIVERSARY to  us! Thank you guys for all your support!!!

btw by the time you guys are reading this i’ll probably be on a plane from Korea to Taiwan! Korea I will miss you but im excited to see what Taiwan is all about!!!

Nostalgic From Seoul

{Kaelen pleated skirt, Manning Cartell jacket (as seen here), Wren sweater (as seen here) , Lanvin booties, Alaia belt, Oliver’s People’s sunglasses, Rebecca Minkoff purse- All pieces available at Satine Boutique}

These images were obviously taken (in sunny cali) before I came out to Seoul, FREEZING, Korea! It’s been 5 years since i’ve been back and I’m beyond ecstatic to be here! I guess it would be accurate to say that i’ve been quite nostalgic since i’ve arrived here this morning! I spent majority of my elementary & grade school days growing up here in Korea, so it’s really nice to be back to rekindle my love for this country!

ok ok, enough on being nostalgic…can we talk  for a minute on how FUHHHHHH-REEEZING  it is out here? Recently ive been receiving tons of requests on “How to look chic in the freezing cold without looking frumpy.” I guess those requests came right in time since i’ll be standing to that test this week! Didn’t realize how blessed we were out in LA with perfect weather 99% of the time…perfect as in being able to pair my fave booties with a short mini + a  lightweight sweater type of weather.

Will be uploading a new Christmas tutorial this week + major updates from my twitter + facebook from seoul, Korea!

Hope its lovely & warm(er) where you are!



1 Piece 7 Different Ways

posted by on 2011.12.18, under Fashion Tutorials

Here’s a little tutorial I did based around one of my fave winter peices! I find that cowl neck tops are alot more versatile and easy to wear than your basic turtle necks! And oh….. although I highly doubt any of you would wear one piece every single day for 7 days in a row…if you do I highly advice that you do your laundry ;) ENJOY!

Manic Monday Look

{BCBG cowl neck top, Philip Lim Coat, H&M trousers, Balenciaga shoes}

Tall Iced Soy Latte Tuesday look

Thank God It’s Thursday Girls Night Out look

Basic But Not So Basic

{All pieces available at Satine Boutique}

Recently i’ve been drawn to busier pieces with striking prints & colors, but I can’t deny that when I laid my hands on this black and white blazer  my heart fluttered. The perfect leather lining + quilted arm patch on the blazer, and not to mention this impossibly perfect dress with billowy chiffon sleeves paired with delicate pleats! Black and white might be basic but there’s nothing so basic about this outfit, don’t you agree? The details on these two pieces are simply impeccable!

Cannot believe that in just 3 days I will be heading out to the motherland- Seoul, Korea! I’ve heard from a few people that its beyond freezing out there, and im quite sure I wont be able to pull off these california leg baring outfits without freezing my tush off! So this weekend i’ll be shopping for some winter wonderland musthaves! Will be in search for a thick yet still chic parka/anorak + thick cable knitted sweaters + thermals + rain/snow boots!

HAPPY FRIDAY loves! I hope you have an impossibly lovely weekend!!



Touch, Feel, Smell

{Styled Nora in Tom Ford + Chopard jewelry for all 3 looks}

Although I have to admit I spend much more time {recently} online than I do indulging in the glossies, but it’s always exciting to see, touch, feel, smell your work in more of a tangible form! Just recieved the the new GENLUX winter issue in which I was able to style french actess {also the face of Guerlain Fragrance} Nora Anezeder for the Cover editorial! I enjoyed working with Nora and  loves what she stands for…she wants to represent real women and not be categorized as just another pretty & skinny girl. We talked about letting go and enjoying life, indulging in the food you want to when you want to without killing yourself! So we went on about our day working, styling, and eating delicious pastries & pizza on set {guilt free!}….Life is too short!

{all pieces available at Satine Boutique}

And yes  I am the model & face for my own blog & youtube, but when it comes to the styling world im always behind the scenes!  So when Stephen of GENLUX asked me to be the stylist AND  the model for one of the holiday editorials for the magazine I was beyond ecstatic & flattered! As you guys know I’m all about reusing & recycling pieces, so here I styled my favorite leather jacket in 7 different ways for 7 different occasions for the week! Out of all the looks I would say Wednesday date night (the large one in the center) is my fave look! Which one is your fave?



P.S This issue just hit stands this week so you can pick up a copy at your local barnes or borders! xoxo
