What Pretty Little Liars Has Taught Me

As I sit here in anticipation for the midnight screening of The Hunger Games, I can’t help thinking about how movies and TV have influenced fashion.  For me, I have always gone to the extreme in inspiration. When I was obsessed with the movie, The Three Amigos, my brother drove down to Tijuana and got me an authentic Three Amigos outfit complete with a matching sombrero. You can bet I wore that thing out and about. When the movie Clueless…

Life’s Too Short, Put on Your Good Jeans

It’s funny how some things that you were told as a kid stays with you for life. Then you spend your adult life trying to unlearn those things. I grew up with the idea that nice things should be saved for a special occasion.  Those pretty, new, shiny shoes shouldn’t be worn until it was a special occasion and even then, don’t get them dirty or god forbid a scratch on them. Yesterday when I woke up, I looked at…

Things I Want to Try for Spring

There’s so many new trends out this spring and here are three that i’m dying to try. The new printed denim trend. I love it on the models, but can I pull it off? I need more color in my life and a blazer would go great with my gray, black, and white tanks. Not sure how i’ll achieve this look on my own, but I love it and my hair is long enough. 

Shopping IS a Strength

Shopping a weakness? I’ve been led to believe this my whole life. Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about strengths and weaknesses. We, as a society, focus so much on our weaknesses and how we can fix them. We leave our strengths as they are and keep trying to fix what is weak. I remember ever since I could walk, I sucked at math. Yes, I’m the only Asian who sucks at math. When I say I suck, I mean…

A Feather Leads to Fun

The other day a good friend of mine told me how she found a giant bow and decided to put it on her head for fun at work. She did it for joy and she was having a good time. No one said anything about it, but she felt more playful all because of it. Lately, she has also been wearing this bundle of feather earring in one ear. If you knew her, you would see that fit her true…

Clowning and Life

This year I told myself I was going to take more action and do things that scare me or make me want to hide. One of these things is to take a clown class. Back in NYC when I first took the class, I use to dread it. I would love watching everyone else participating, but I hated it when it was my turn. I could never just let go, release and just have fun. It was a very dark…

Purses are to Women as Balls are to Men

“I’m thinking balls are to men what purses are to women. It’s just a little bag, but we feel naked in public without it.” (Carrie from Sex in the City) Like last week’s blog talking about what shoes say about a man (Dating and Shoes), I think handbags are to women as shoes are to men. I believe you can tell a lot about a woman by her handbag. To us, handbags are an everyday essential, even the non-handbag lady…

Dating and Shoes

“Momma always says there’s an awful lot you could tell about a person by their shoes. Where they’re going. Where they’ve been.” – Forest Gump That Forest was a real smart man. I like to live my life a little by this quote. There’s a lot of truth to it. You might say that I’m judging a book by its cover, but honestly, most of us do So why not put our best “shoe” forward? You really can tell a…
