Trend Alert: Ripped Jeans

Been obsessing over ripped jeans for a long time now.  The hardest part though is finding the right fit and the right amount of rips.  I particularly have a hard time finding a good pair that doesn't stretch out too much as well as finding a pair that fits to a tea.

I love these pair I found from American Eagle... the amount of rips are enough for me.  The cropped length is perfect for summer time too.






This is my first time doing an indoor photoshoot.... I have to admit I like the convenience it offers; for instance, I can just change clothes fast and not look for a change room... and i'm not out in the freezing cold! lol

MAC Lipstick Favourites



I love lipsticks that are long lasting and MAC lipsticks are no exception.  The vivid colours stay on for a longgg time.  When I say long time, trust me, I mean even when I'm eating.  As you can see, I can't get enough of the lipsticks that I decided to collect 5 of them.  My all time favourite colour is "Girl About Town" which is a bright blue fuchsia.  My fall favourite is "Rebel," a midtonal cream plum, as well as "Up The Amp" which is a good purple hue.  "Russian Red" is the colour I would use for a more dramatic intense look.  And for the summer season, I like a bright neon pink colour, "Candy Yum Yum."

Knee-High Boots for Fall

Knee-high or over-the-knee high boots are definitely taking centre stage this season!  I bought my pair about 3 years ago thinking I've always wanted a pair of flat boots that go over the knee and are comfortable as well.  I like variety of lengths in my wardrobe whether it be shoes, boots, skirts, shorts you name it.  Variety of style of different things help me have options when I put an outfit together.

Blue + Backpack

I've been into casual with feminine pieces lately; and what great way to combine a slip dress with a comfortable sweater and casual backpack in this mild (when I had this photoshoot) fall weather.

I love love love the colour of this slip dress from Aritzia.  You can't go wrong with blue, it's always been my favourite colour and slip dresses were definitely the hot new item in the summer!

Perfumes.

I'm usually very picky in terms of choosing the right perfume for me.  Number 1, I might be allergic to strong scented perfumes because my nose will start to hurt.  Number 2, I only wear the perfume, "Christian Dior- Addict in forever, but since they discontinued the product (boo hoo!); I resorted to checking other kinds out there.

I stumbled upon this cute store in Steveston, Richmond called Naikaido that sells a variety of teas to organic perfumes.  Yes, they carry this brand called "Tokyo Milk" that I presume has organic ingredients.  I fell in love with a couple more perfumes, one was a cream perfume and the other in a liquid form in the same brand called "Liberty of Flowers - True Vanilla."

Ingredients: sugar cane, coconut milk, vanilla orchid & white musk.

InStyle Magazine Feature

I was beyond ecstatic to have been chosen as one of the women to be featured on fashion magazine called InStyle.  "Inside InStyle" is a two page feature of women who are inspired by InStyle magazine; to be picked as one of the 8 featured was a privileged.  This feature helped me become more inspired to keep on sharing my love of fashion and styling.  Thank you InStyle for this inspiration!

Autumn Faux-Fur Vest

Faux-fur vest is the best piece to layer up this fall season.  I particularly like the softness and warmth this Talula vest offers.  I wanted to add a statement necklace to add a punch of colour to the whole outfit.
