It's New Year's Eve tonight! Have you had any plan on what to wear for tonight yet? It's kinda late for me to post this blog entry, but it's better late than never. I've been crazily busy with many things these few weeks; my works, my dance practice, and spending time with my mom (I'm not giving any excuse for this late blog post though). Because this is going to be the last blog entry of year 2013, I wanted to make it a little bit more special with a style lookbook that I created just for you, some styles and outfit inspirations on "What to wear on New Year's Eve" just in case you haven't had any idea of what to wear on this magical night. I have you covered!

Look 1: Good as Gold
No New Year is complete without the touch of gold. From the firework, the champagne color, or even the light in the room, everything seems to turn gold in New Year's Eve (at least in my eyes). I don't normally wear sequin gold dress but it's once a year kinda night, I can't ignore this showstopper-dress. 

Get this look:
Danica Dress from Missguided 
Michael Kors Clutch
Saint Laurent Heels
Stephanie Kantis Cuff
Dior lipstick 
Look 2: Electrifying blue
Rock the blue sequin dress tonight like nobody's business for me, please! I mean it. Holiday parties are in full swing and you have no reason why not to go all the way with it. How many times in a year do you have chance to dress a little bit more dramatic than usual? Besides, there are hundreds of girls try to look their best tonight, I bet you will not want to be under-dressed. 

Get this look:
Alice &Olivia Dress
Christian Louboutin heels- Also love this one
Forever New Clutch - Similar here 
Lapris Drop Earrings - Also love this one
J-Crew necklace
Neon Angle lipstick

Look 3: Magical Night.
If you are not the "bling bling" type of girl and the 2 looks above don't work for you, go for this sheer Valentino dress instead. With a hint of sequin stripes, it's good enough to capture the attention. Red heels, red lipsticks and earrings are what I would recommend to wear with this outfit.

Get this look:
RED Valentino Dress
Valentino studded heels
Alexandra Mc Queen Skull Box Clutch
Calvin Klein perfume
Stefanie Somers earrings
AERIN Lipstick
John Lewis necklace

No matter where you are going to celebrate your New Year's Eve tonight, I hope you'll have great and magical time with your loved ones. Wish all your wishes come true and a New Year with lot of love, luck and success.
Happy Holiday!
Thank you so much for reading.

Hi everyone!

Valentine's Day is here finally! Have you had already your plan with your loved one tonight? What are you wearing for the special date? I'm sure some of you have already planned what to wear, what to do. But just in case you are still wondering what to wear tonight, here are some outfits inspiration I created/ styled just for you:

1. Give me some candy and passionate kisses.

Valentine's Day is a perfect occasion to put on the red dress if you are not used to this hot and passionate color. This year, flare dresses make a come-back with many different styles, designs, cutting and I love the dress I chose here. It's fitting enough to flaunt your sexy curve and comfortable enough to move around.
A pair of pointy toe pumps is perfect for this type of dresses. It's classy, sexy and very feminine.

Give me candy and kisses

2. Lace Up Valentine
Lace outfit is always my all time favorite. I find it extremely sexy, sensual and magical especially whenever it's styled with nude/ beige material underneath. You want your boyfriend's eyes glued to your body? Rock this lace bodycon dress! Keep the accessories simple and let the dress do the talking. The only thing you need is: a pair of red- pumps and red lipstick. Keep your eyeshadow as natural as possible when you wear red color-lipstick.

Lace up- Valentine

3. Life is all about Love.
I know many Asian girls like to look cute, adorable like a barbie doll instead of  The Girl Next Door kind of look. I got you covered. Here is the as sweet as candy look for you with tube peplum cocktail dress in pink and silver combination. I love how the silver details are placed along the top of the dress. Using that detail on the dress, I chose silver glitter pumps and silver jewelry to match them all together. I doubt your boyfriend can resist you once he see you in this outfit. *wink*
Life is All About Love

4. Live For Love
You are not the dressy-type of girl? Not to worry, this outfit I created is just for you. I know how it feels when it comes to dress up, I feel very troublesome sometimes too. Sometimes, when you are in relationship for so long, you tend to let-loose yourself and be easy in your own comfort zone. In this outfit, I paired a cute printed sweaters with floral jeans which are current popular this season. Love leather cuff, simple chain necklace and ankle cuff- heels are the only things you need to complete this trendy and chic look.

Live For Love

That's all I have for you in this style tip blog entry. 
Hope you've found the outfit that you like and wish you a sweet, warm and happy Valentine's Day with your love one.

This summer, one of the most popular trends in fashion industry is colorblocking. From the runway, on the streets, at the shopping centers, everywhere we see the bright & bold colors running around.

I used to hate striking colors like neon, yellow, purple, orange...because i thought they are too bright, too hot to wear for summer. I didn't like people staring at me on the street because of what I wore, those colors would not compliment my skin color at all and many other reasons. But somehow, I've changed my mind.

I don't know why and how I end up having more bright colors outfits in my closet and I'm loving it. I used to dress up often according to my mood. When I'm happy, I usually choose to wear bright and fun color outfits. It gives me alot of energy, enthusiasm, positive and happy feeling for some reasons. But when I'm down, naturally I will not care much about what I wear, what color is it, I'll come back to the brown, black, grey, dark blue kinda colors outfits. That's not really good because the dull colors can make myself feel even worse so I tried to have less dull colors in my wardrobe as much as possible and filled it up with some happy, fun colors.

Basically, color-blocking is about mixing and matching two to three pop, bold, bright colors at the same time to create a contrast yet complementary color outfit. I've done some interesting pairings on my youtube. Perhaps, for those who have never tried or worn color-blocking before, you'll have an idea of how to start it.

Don't forget to subscribe to get more fashion tutorial updates from me :)

Besides pairing of my own outfits, I've created a lookbook about this Color-blocking trend. These are basically my favorite outfits on Polyvore website.

Style 1: Similar color blocking
Rock that color-blocking dress. Rule 1: Similar colors

One of the simple rules to pair color-blocking outfit is Similar colors. Basically, they are adjacent on the color wheel such as: blue - green, pink- purple, orange- pink etc...Here I picked the lipsy peacock two tones dress and paired up with Jessica Simpson pumps. It's perfect for dinner, party, prom...and guess how much do they cost? Dress is £19 and shoes is $99. Click on the photo to buy it if you would love too.

Style2: T- Colors Blocking
The colors usually form T-shape on the color wheel like yellow, purple, orange. I love playing with purple-orange mix & match because I find it's so sensual, sexy and elegant. 
She's the one!

In this look, I paired silk purple blouse with lightweight jean from Net-a-porter. Accessories: purple belt, purple watch and ring to match with the shirt and orange earrings, pumps to match with the jean.

Not only me but also many celebrities are in love with this style too. Name it!

Kristen Cavillari, Cheryl Cole, Jennifer Hudson, Kim Kardashian on orange and purple outfits. Summer just gets even hotter!

Style3: Neutral and Complementary Combo
Neon power

All the time, I love neon pumps but this color is kinda picky to wear. Not everyone can rock neon pumps and not every color can go with neon. Pink would be its best match. So I decided to pair up the neutral color-blocking pink-grey peplum dress with neon accessories: shoes, bangles, earrings, etc...Obviously, it makes the entire outfit become so different and so "Wow".

Sometimes, just a small detail can make a big difference in the outfit. Let the colors play a part and experiment the new look in you. Who knows you will become a big fan of color-blocking after that? But make sure, you need to know what colors work best for you, your skin tone, hair color, etc..and learn how to play with single colors one at a time. The most important thing is you MUST feel good and confident in whatever you are wearing. Know your body well.

Color-blocking is easy and fun to play with and is suitable for any body type, age but like I said in the video, it's not gonna work if you don't have the confidence and personality to pull it off. So, let just try it and let me know how it turns out.

I hope you will like it like I do.
Good luck!
