Oriental Shawl | 5 Shopping Tips

The tasseled shawl with oriental weaved-in fabric is from Topshop Boutique. It is sadly very itchy! But I don’t mind it since it adds luxe and coverage to any casual summer pairings. The bralette is Free People’s. The black sandals are Saint & Libertine. I bought all three items for a really affordable price about a year or two ago…

Blue Denim Baby

White T and blue denim are always an outfit combo I love. I remembered when browsing Jcrew last year, I saw the sale associate was wearing the nearly exact combo, and I kept checking her outfit out the whole time. I rarely asked people what or where they get their stuff from, but this time was an exception. Funny how…

Houston Travel Diary – Something Wicked Music Festival

I spent a long Halloween weekend in Houston, Texas. This trip was made really last minute and mainly was to attend the music festival, Something Wicked. I’d lived in Houston for 5 months when I first moved to the States about 7 years ago. So it was really nostalgic when I landed and breathed in the Houston air, again. Flying…

Day 1 – Travel Washington D.C

This past weekend I traveled to Washington, D.C, arriving late Friday the 15th, 2016. I stayed at a friend who is a local, so I trusted him completely with great places to go and good food to eat. And of course, I had a blast. The monuments and places I visited right on the first day were all within walking distance. Check’em out…

• Put on a Blazer and Call It Suit •

Chao, I enjoy so much the weekends when I get to browse around the city streets and corners finding good spots for outfit shots. I’ve recently frequent Downtown St. Paul. On the weekends, I usually have to drive around the same street couple times to find a parking spot although it’s free. There are a lot of good restaurants in the area, too….
