My Velvet Dream Obsession 


I’m telling you guys that the 90s style trends are coming back! Sometimes I wish some of the trends will never ever come back! However, there is one trend I’m super obsessed with is the “velvet on velvet” style, especially from head to toe! If you ladies are crazy about velvet like me then the “Velvet on velvet” look is for you. I’m pretty sure you ladies are beginning to see this new fad spreading around on social media and also in major shopping department stores. This style is also perfect to wear for the holidays occasions! And the holidays seasons is around the corner!


Here is my own “velvet on velvet” inspirations:

I bought this matching black velvet top and black velvet pants at Nordstrom Rack. I thought it would be cool to wear the top and bottom together because if you ladies look the pictures my outfit looks like a jumpsuit. Did I mentioned my pants has pockets?!?!  I also wore a red blazer to add a pop of color to my wardrobe. By the way this outfit was so comfy!! 🙂

This outfit include the same velvet pants, however I just switch out my top and blazer. Instead I wore a navy lace camisole and a grey blazer. I also change my shoes game too! I wore my Marc Fisher silver tassel loafer.

Floral Print Jumpsuit


I never thought I could ever pull off wearing a jumpsuit. I’m only 5 feet tall! Like I said I never thought I could wear jumpsuits because I was afraid I was too short to wear these attires. Until now….Thank you for cropped jumpsuits!!! The lengths fits perfectly on me! (Yes I know I can shorten the pants length to make them cropped but I’m too lazy…) haha


(Style by me)

I found this gorgeous floral print jumpsuit at Marshalls. I love the flower patterns and the bright pink accent on this garment! It’s too cute!! Guess how much I bought them for?!?!!! This cost only $19.99!!! I want more of these jumpsuits! I’m  telling you guys Marshalls always have major deals, including on designers!!!  I’m pretty sure it’s not going to be my last trip to Marshall for this summer. It’s only the beginning. I can tell you all that I received many compliments when I  wore this jumpsuit to work.

Steve Madden Shena Sandals 


Over the years I bought dozens of shoes and I could not get rid of them. But these heels right here are a show stopper! I found these sandals at DSW. I couldn’t resisted buying these beauties. I love love love love them! I may have a shopping and shoe addiction. The first thing about these heels is the pop of color. The bright magenta color makes me smile. Second is the length of the heels. The heels are perfect height, not too high and not too short.  Third is the width of the heels, gives extra balance and easy to walk on! Lastly, perfect for summer! These are a must-have item for summer.

Hello Everyone!!!! I’m BACKKKK!!!!

I know I know It has been a while since a wrote my latest post. I have to be honest I had a couple of step backs and also was going through some personal thing over the last year, which is why I haven’t been inspired to write. Don’t worry I am back now, since today is Chinese and Vietnamese New Year, why not start over? I want to move forward with my life and  start over with a fresh clean plate. My goal for this year is to discover and create new memories & adventures and find more muses and inspirations to write about.

I decided to do a collaboration with a good friend of mine, Kahlil Martinez. He is a terrific photographer. I’m always amazed and inspired by his work and talent.  We decided to set up a quick photo shoot something fashion based to overlap with my blog site. So we decided to do a city shoot in Downtown Hartford around Pratt street and City Hall. The inspirations behind the shoot was to take place somewhere outside in the city, in a urban setting and for my part was to pick out a few of outfits and style to showcase something relating to the “beginning of the winter season for fashion trend”. We wanted to stay with a solid theme so that I can write a few blogs about this shoot.

 I live in the Northeast and  sometime it can be difficult for me to find outfits to wear without freezing my butt when I walk outside in the freezing air and snow. There was a point of time where I used to get tired of seeing other girls wear tight-fitting crop tops and tight pencil skirts with slits. I want to show other fashion divas that there are other outfit options to look chic and sexy instead of wearing tight and revealing crop tops and pencil skirts with slits. So I decided to selected a couple of outfits to show ways how to make comfy and loose clothing can look chic and sexy for a perfect outfit of the day look. I want to give the idea that I can look fashionable or trendy without having to put a lot of thoughts and efforts because we were shooting around Hartford and the shoot fits with the theme. So I picked out a pair of my light-washed destroyed boyfriend jeans, my must have leopard faux fur vest, a white over-sized sweater, my boyfriend flannel button up, and a pair of my black suede zipped up booties. I decided to paired my red envelope clutch and neon clutch with my outfits and accessories with my gold bracelets and necklace and my gold Michael Kors watch.

My “Sport Luxe” Lookbook

Can I ask how many of my “phashionistas” fans or viewers are sport lovers? Now who is a baseball fan? Well then…Have you ever thought about mixing sporting attires with high fashion? I know many people are uninspired when it comes to creating outfits using one of the baseball hats from Fanatics, but it can be the perfect accessory for a “sports luxe” look! Now you don’t have to be a baseball fan, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy wearing game day attire! I have to say “Sport Luxe” is currently one of my favorite fashion trends! I love the clashing between urban and street wear with high fashion. It’s brilliant! I’m surprise this trend has been around for so many years and now everyone seems to be aware of this new fad. From fashion designers to celebrities, everyone seems to embrace this new statement! There is something this style. The concept is looking effortless but chic at the same time, while mixing baseball caps, casual clothing and high heels. How daring is that!

Well, I thought it would be a great idea to do a challenge using a Major League Baseball Hat from Fanatics . Now, what is Fanatics? Fanatics is the leading online retailer for everything sports, specializing in apparel of course! They have it all! From jerseys to bows, clothing apparels, hats to helmets. Whatever you ask, they got it! I have to say Fanatics has one of the BEST collections of baseball caps. So, I decide to create a “lookbook” of 5 game days styles & looks. This lookbook is a “Sports Luxe” or “sport chic” inspired!


Here are my five game days styles & looks:

Game Day #1

game 1This first look is for an aspiring, talented hip hop dancer, who is trying to make a name for herself in the performing arts, dance & entertainment industries. This girl has an dance addition for a hip hop music video. This girl looks fabulous & confident! She is wearing black & grey jogger pants, this cool-looking black biker jacket, a white jersey tank top, a pair of blue & black strappy heels, a blue & black clutch & lastly a red New Era Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim On-Field Game Fitted Performance Hat, which is available to be purchase. Now this girl will looks fierce for addition! She will most definitely make the cut!


Game Day #2

game 2This second look can be a typical Friday night or Saturday night outfit. Perfect attire for a girls night out or for a party night! This style is inspired by a girl living in LA or New York City. You can tell by these items that this girl have a bold and bright personality. She is unique and daring…And is NEVER afraid to stand out from her group of friends. She is wearing either a black faux leather skirt or a black leather fringe skirt, an over-sized printed jersey, & lastly a red New Era Philadelphia Phillies  Classic Game Flex Hat, which is available to be purchase! She is accessorize from head to toes. She has two selections for shoes. I know in fact that guys will fall for her and will be mesmerism by her!


Game Day #3

game 3This third look is inspired by this silly fashion rule “you can’t wear white after Labor Day.” Now that’s crazy! I don’t follow that rule! First of all, the color white is one of the most beautiful and chic colors. White matches every different skin tones and is so easy to wear. So I decided to create an all-white outfit for a girl who isn’t afraid to wear all-white. I also used the accent of navy blue and red to accessorize…Making the whole outfit stand out! This brave girl has two options of wearing a pair of white laced skinny jeans or a pair of white high-rise destructed skinniest jeans. This girl is wearing a basic off-white crew neck sweater, all white Converse Chuck Taylor & a New Era Cleveland Indians Authentic Collection Sport Knit  beanie, which is available to be purchase! Yes, this girl looks so basic and clean, but she is so chic right now!


Game Day #4

game 4

This fourth look is my own personal style. Now this my style. I love wearing boyfriend jeans and a cute oversize jersey, muscle tee top while pairing up with a pair of studded orange pumps. I love the concept of the “tomboy” image and “super girly girl” image. I just usually love wearing beanies with my outfits. I would wear this particular navy blue & white  New Era New York Yankees “The Coach Cuffed” Beanie, which is available to be purchase! I think this outfit and look is perfect for any girl who wants to step out from their shell and be daring for once.


Game Day #5

game 5

This last look is also inspired by a girl living in New York, LA, or even outside the U.S. I’ve seen many celebrities  wear this particular style all of the time from Rihanna to Selena Gomez. Usually a girl  wears a pair of baggy jeans or boyfriend jeans, Graphic Mesh Jersey (see through), white Converse Chuck Taylor,  a black bralette, & a beanie. I  recommend this particular black & yellow Pittsburgh Pirates New Era Snowburst Cuffed Hat beanie. I have to say I’m obsessed with this look. I love how edgy this outfit looks. I like how this look shows a little bit of skin because you can see the bralette when wearing the mesh jersey!


I hope you enjoy reading this post! All of these looks and styles are under $90 or lower! You can get these items at any retailers or stores from Forever21, Macy’s, Pacsun, H&M, DSW, ALDO, Zumiez, & etc.

The #Floppyhat Trend

image

 I have found my new obsession…I’m obsessed and in love with the retro-inspired “floppy hat’ trend! This fashion trend dates back in the 70’s. My “phashion” prediction for 2015 is retro-inspired floppy hats will be everywhere on the runways during Spring 2015 Fashion Week for fashion designers. Floppy hats will be a MUST HAVE item for the Spring and Summer! “Phasionistas” and celebrities have been wearing these type of hats in 2014, so Floppy hat trend will continue to be saturated everywhere around the world. And I’m okay with that!!

The heart-shaped cut out adds a bit of sex-appeal and an edge. I must have this sweater!!! I”m obsessed! #Musthave #outfitoftheday


I know it’s difficult sometimes to put together an amazing outfit that will keep us warm at the same time. A “sweater” is a “must have” item that every girl should own in her closet. Sweaters will always keep everyone warm but also can make any ladies looking stylish. If you have a difficult time putting an outfit together with a sweater, here are 5 different ways to wear a sweater:

Style #1

 A big sweater (over-sized), a pair of black leggings, infinity scarf (any color of your choice),a cute over-sized tote bag, and a pair of lace up combat boots =  a simple fall outfit that you can find in your own closet:

This is my favorite ’90s trend! It is back! I  love wearing crop top sweaters with skirts because I can always accessorize with cool-looking tights or leggings. This is an example of ready to wear. You can wear this outfit during the day and night. You don’t need to change your outfit! By the way, I’m obsessed with those shoes!! Those are to die for!!!
