Tone on Tone at Home

I wear a lot of black. I wear enough black to induce a jaw drop on days I’m wearing colour (from memory, she actually dropped everything and ran across the office yelling in excitement). I wear black because I’m actually awful at pairing colours— that’s why monochrome is my jam. I love the textures that come to play when you’re working with a monochrome palette but I’ve always felt like it’s hard to pull off the tone-on-tone vibes at home without it feeling contrived. Is it just me or does the tone-on-tone trend feel exclusive to highly-curated product photography? You tell me.

8 Stripe Transitional Pieces for Fall

With all the back to back typhoons hitting Hong Kong, it's given me a lot of time to browse online and get prepped for my Fall closet. Somehow I find myself clicking save on a lot of striped items.. I like to describe stripes as "subtly striking". So I thought I'd share some of my striped Summer to Fall transitional pieces. Since I'm pretty sure this heat is not going anywhere for awhile... Fall? What Fall?

More items here!

jumpsuit for days

This is my "ready for fall" jumpsuit from Oak + Fort. I was first introduced to Oak + Fort when I was shopping in Chicago with my friend. Took 10 items into the changing room and maybe walked out with 5 things (only because I would've had to buy an extra suitcase if I bought any more). Very affordable, dress up dress down items, unique and unisex (at least for girls). Can't wait to see what's in stock next!

Work Station.

In the era of work-life-balance (or at least the fight for it), it’s hard to admit that I’m pretty married to my work. I can spend hours at the office brainstorming, strategising, researching and getting creative without feeling tired. I’ve never really considered the idea of working from home but these designs sure make it tempting…

Summer

Summer is here and things are just starting to get crazy! I've taken some time off the blog and had a good little detox from social media life. Some of you already know - I'll be moving back to Hong Kong for 5 months for an opportunity with my company, but more importantly to spend some quality with the fam. I've been slowly packing the 5 years I've spent in LA, and purging as much as I can. It's quite refreshing to see your life organized into boxes! 

I'm very excited for what's to come next and will update you as I take it week by week. 

I'm back for a bit with some fun polka dots! Hope you are all well and happy summer! :)

It's been a whirlwind of a month. Where to start! My mind has been racing - uncontrollably bouncing from one errand, to another project idea, to something I have to do for work, and planning my trip to Korea with my sisters. It's like a pinball machine, where the ball ricochets off the different parts, lighting up and gaining points, but never rolling down the drain. I'm ready for it to roll down the drain! Despite of all that, I'm really excited for the next few months to come. Next week, I will be meeting my sisters in Korea, then taking a slight detour to China to meet my Vibrvncy team in Chengdu for a special project. More info to come later...

In honor of festival season, I wanted to showcase my favorite/most convenient outfit to wear - a 2 piece. You don't have to think about matching, easy bathroom access, and super comfortable to flail your arms and prance around. :)
