Color me happy

There are points in our lives that aren't as glamours as we would've hoped. There are times when it's easy to be down because of events out of one's control. There certainly are moments when it's hard to keep one's standard, chin or heels high (think bulky sweater and baggy sweatpants days). Whether we like it or not, those not particularly happy moments are just simply part of life.

However, it's when I'm in those unhappy moments that I particularly appreciative of this blog and what it allows me to accomplish. This blog gives me a space to simply be. There is nothing complicated about this creative place. The images (thanks to my talented photographer friend Marcus), never fail to bring a smile to my face. The outfit choices appeared on this blog followed the same philosophy, dress in ways that make me happy and no one else. 

Now that this blog is more than two and a half years old, I'm reminded just why I created it in the first place. It is a constant reminder to grab life by the balls, and simply be fabulous.

'ello Weekend

Sweater: Wildfox
Shoes: Sam Edelman
Sunnies: Celine
Bag: Zara

Hello there ;) This set was taken right after grabbing lunch with my photographer and location scouter (a husband and wife team)! Thank you both!! 

It's an on-going joke now that I have Marcus as my photographer on retainer these days. What I didn't expect, is now his wife is also giving me amazing location suggestions for different posts as well. Seriously, how lucky can a girl get to have such wonderful friends! I love surrounding myself with fun folks, and it's wonderful to see how fun times (aka yummy food and endless bantering) can get the creative juices flowing. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Peekaboo


(Photos by Marcus Lam: website and flickr)

It's been SO long since my last update! Life has been hectic lately to say the least, and it's so nice to be posting on my little space again! 

This jumpsuit is probably one of my favorite pieces of clothing in my closet. I love it's simple yet edgy feel, all wrapped up in one without any effort. Whenever I wear this outfit out, I aways get a rush of confidence and feel extra sexy (in a not all up in your face kind of way), even if it's in broad day light.

I kept the color muted and paired the jumpsuit with my black and white chevron heels and let the orange clutch pop. In the end, even I'm not sure who's the star of the day, the jumpsuit, clutch or the soaring confidence. Either way, it's safe to say that this little peekaboo outfit will be seeing a lot more day/night light for days to come.

Summer time in SF

Dress: Aritzia
Sunnies: Prada

This photo set was taken in what I called the prime San Francisco summer weather. Which is also known as windy, overcast and freezing. It definitely fits the bill for that classic San Francisco summer fling mood. Hope you all had a nice 4th of July, and wishing everyone a fabulous Tuesday!

Split down the middle

Dress: Topshop x Kate Moss
Bag: Celine
Shoes: Zara

When I first saw this dress in TopShop, I was actually a bit torn on how I feel about it. I loved the cellulite but wasn't sure if it was special enough to pull the plug. I spend over an hour at the store (how can you not, the store is awesome!), and this was the last dress I tried on. In the end, it was the slightly suggestive zipper design that won me over.

Wishing you all a very happy and safe fourth of July!
