The Woman Who Lived In White

posted by on 2014.06.24, under Outfit Of The Day, Outfits







Not sure when this all white combination will ever come to an end, but it seems like the most logical move in the midst of this Summer heat. Or maybe i’m simply taking reference to one of my ultimate style icons….the woman who lived in white suits aka Bianca Jagger. Her strong attitude matched her strong power suits with plunging necklines. She was extremely glamorous, but entirely masculine and androgynous at the same time. There’s nothing more powerful , in my opinion, when a woman can pull off menswear.

And a big thank you to all those who participated in my Korean Beauty Skincare giveaway HERE. I had so much fun reading thru all of your skincare secrets, and will definitely be applying a few of them to my very own routine. It was incredibly hard to pick only 2 winners for the giveaway, but Congratulations to ….

Cathy Liu and Chloe Lee !!!

Please e-mail to claim your prize! Thank you to all who participated, and there will be another fun giveaway coming up soon!

I love it! This is something I’d totally wear… I only wish I knew what shoes you were wearing!

Love the white on white combination. I however, have something to pick. As it appears in most of your pictures that you’re trying to hold the purse “clutch style” I would’ve tucked in the shoulder strap. It’s really distracting trying to figure the type of purse your holding. I know it’s a minor detail, in the large complexity of the photo, but still. It’s all in the details!

Much love

Am I the only one who thinks those shorts are tad bit unflattering? She still looks great but I dunno if those had been full length or a bit shorter I would have been more here for this look (just being honest)

Monica ( June 25, 2014 at 4:13 PM )

I love all the white for summer, but it can be overwhelming. But it’s great for when you’re like me and in the Georgia heat. Those shorts are to die for and the subtle pinstripes are so cool!

Mariah ( June 25, 2014 at 6:21 AM )

I’m seriously loving the all white trend I don’t think monochromatic will ever go out of style. It’s the easiest way to add sophistication to any look!

White suits your colouring…clean colour….although it doesn’t always stay clean..if you catch my drift!!

Jessica Rose ( June 25, 2014 at 12:24 AM )

I love that vest and there is something so powerful about Women in suits.


TERESA ( June 25, 2014 at 12:11 AM )

I love your affinity for white because I share it! It’s such an elegant, clean looking color. And it looks beautiful on you!
