The Tie-Sleeve Trench & Gucci Canvas Clutch Bag

I have been very into the decorated or exaggerated sleeved trend as of lately. Details such as: tops with shoulders cut-off, ruffles, bell or fluted shapes are seen everywhere. And I can assure you that this trend does not go anywhere this Winter/Spring season. Last weekend, I made a visit to one of my favorite office-wear stores, the good old…

At-Home Manicure – 5 Easy Steps

I majored in Chemistry and once thought about going into the cosmetic industry, learning to formulate soaps and cosmetics. I eventually picked up jobs in medical research instead. When I was in college, I used to work at my aunt’s friend’s nail salon for a brief period of time. As much as I love playing with colors and design aspect of…

Ribbed & Oversized

Happy Wednesday! I have recently been quite busy back to back drafting and editing my blog’s theme and design (with the help of my tech-savvy boyfriend of course!) and shooting sponsored content for the blog and Instagram. Make sure to spend some time exploring my new blog’s design. A new Style & Senses’ logo is also coming your way. Let…

White Raw Hem Jeans & Teddy Fur Coat

I am bringing back the most-loved summer white raw hem denim to the winter styling. As said many times before, people in the west coast are too blessed or spoiled with such temperate weather, no messy streets filled with dirty plowed snow nor negative degree freezing temperature. Seattle rains often, but there are sunny forty-ish degree days which I definitely…

JORD | A Look & A Giveaway

 Dates, dinners, work parties, everyday wear or weekends, watches are my favorite ways to accessorizing an outfit. Like clothing, jewelry and accessories reflect style as well as the person’s distinctive individual tastes. Watches are like bags to me, I’d rather invest in one and wear it for years to come. They have to be classic in style, neutral in colors, simple yet unique…

Borrowed From The Boys

I love hats: beanies, berets, baker boy hats, boater-styled straw hats, fedoras, fisherman hats, dad hats to name a few. I always find it is difficult to find a style of hat or hats with bigger sizes available to fit my big head. Once I find the one, I will continue wearing it for years to come. Last weekend, I stopped…


More Self Love

  New Year. New Beginnings. This post is meant to serve as an intention towards a BETTER YOU. I do not have or have not set any New Year resolutions this year. Throughout the years, I have found that I rarely stick with anything. Resolutions are more action-oriented, and that requires you to break off certain habits. Habits cannot be…

Styling Beret & Teddy Coat

I have been loving the warmer tones lately as you can see via my Instagram feed and my outfit pairings with clothing’s color-of-choice are camel or brown. As I walked into Urban Outfitters store in downtown last weekend intended to pick up a beret hat, little did I know that I ended up walking out with a huge bag, mainly due…
