The Black Trench

Recently, I've felt a slight change of taste in my clothes, photography and style. I'm kind of excited about it, and I hope that you guys will like it and grow with me. I'm taking a new approach to these styling fashion photos. I thought what better way than to start with this amazing Everlane wool trench! 

I've been kind of obsessed with this brand lately. I love their business model and their consistency in their branding and styling. They offer high quality clothes for a reasonable price. This trench is very comfortable. I chose a black one so that it matches everything and has longevity. I always need a black one for the holidays - going to events, black ties, girls night out, it's great for every occasion! I paired it with an all white outfit and a leather jacket to keep it minimal and elegant. Being in LA, I tend to make last minute decisions on where I want to go after work, so this look is definitely the "ready to go to any event" look.

Sunshine Vibes

So I'm on week 3 of crutches and a sprained ankle. I have a major case of cabin fever, and feeling so antsy to walk, run, dance, jump and most importantly, DRIVE! I had to cancel my trip next week to Denver to ski with my family. I'm super bummed about it but like my dad says, "shit happens" right?

While we were in Palm Springs last week for a wedding, Feng and I decided to stop for a few minutes to snap a few pictures. We saw these super cute scooters parked in the front of our hotel and asked the owner if we could borrow one for a quick shoot! Here's one of my favorite daytime outfits! You can easily change this into a winter look with some boots and a long coat. I'm so excited to wear turtlenecks again!

Back to the 80s

Found this amazing blazer at Banana Republic with Erin. She came to visit LA recently and we forgot about lunch and dinner and shopped till all the stores closed! We were trying on a bunch of work-friendly blazers and immediately got drawn to this one. It has these amazing shoulder pads that remind me of my mom's closet in the 80's, and the speckled maroon color reminds me of my grandpa's closet. It also has this secret color on the flip side of the collar. I've been wearing it to pretty much every occasion. Check out the green version too (below)!
This necklace is from Portugal! Every time our parents travel, they bring us fun jewelry souvenirs. Super cute!

Can you believe it? Thanksgiving is next week! Danielle, Ashlyn and I decided to host Friendsgiving lunch/dinner (lunner?) last weekend, before we all head our separate ways. We all were in charge of different dishes, but since Feng and I hosted it at our loft, we decided to tackle the Turkey for the first time ever. Yikes. On top of that, I had sprained my ankle the night before, so cooking, cleaning and getting ready was not easy! I must say, we managed to pull it off, and the turkey turned out pretty good, but my girlfriends are way better cooks than I am! They brought some bomb-a** mac and cheese, candied yams, cheesy mashed potato, stuffing, and pumpkin cheesecake. Mm mmm! No one wanted to take leftovers, so we've been eating Thanksgiving breakfast, lunch and dinner for the past 4 days. haha.. 

Thanks to Urban Outfitters, who provided us with some amazing products to use for our Friendsgiving! It really made our dinner next level with the cocktail kit, the record player and cute outfits. The girls attempted to make cocktails (which failed horribly), and the boys sat around watching sports and listening to Michael Jackson on the record player. Our special guest was Baxter (Danielle's dog) who pretty much stole the show. Thank you to my friends who bared with me while we cooked food, prepped the table and had a photo shoot at the same time. I would say we had a very successful first Friendsgiving in LA!

What we wore:


Hi guys, how was your Halloween? I posted a photo on my instagram of what Feng and I dressed up as. I was a black and white photo of skele-fied Breakfast at Tiffany's, and Feng was a lion (long story short, it was a theme between the Quest guys). Check it out here!

It's been cooling down here in LA, so I don't feel so silly posting these photos anymore :). 
Here's the second fall/winter look that I put together for Urban Outfitters. I am loving this green plaid jacket! It has an A-line cut, which makes the outfit more feminine. I paired the jacket with a longer top so the color can peep below. I also didn't realize I was wearing Christmas colors - how perfect for the holiday season!
When we were taking these photos, it was probably the day the weather changed. We were on top of the hill suffering from 20mph wind. I tried really hard not to show that I was cold, or that my hair was flying all over the place!
