Cuban Mob Boss

Isabel Marant h&m gold pants white blazer Twist-Front Cropped Cami victorialamode forever 21

I'm looking/feeling fresh like a Cuban mobster in Miami. Does anyone else tie their looks with different personas? Like an actor switching roles--except I am the master of disguise. 

Forever 21 sent me a care package that included this twist-front cropped cami, and my gut instinct was to pair it with my brassy gold pants from the coveted Isabel Marant x H&M collaboration from years past. (Also worn here). SO extra. Then I needed a cover up that contrasted with all the gold, and this white blazer was the answer! Polished the look with pointy white pumps and my signature gold chevron choker that I can't seem to take off.

My super cool friend/photographer Alex and I stumbled across this quirky orange Volkswagen Bus, which happened to be parked against a sky blue house adorned with beautiful high arches. It perfectly matched and complemented by outfit--it was too good to be true. Never feel insecure about your creativity. You'll hear me say that time and time again.  I almost didn't style this top the way I did, it was my least favorite outfit of the few that I shot that day, but it turned out to be quite stunning, if I do say so myself! Morale of the story is to trust yourself, no one knows you better than you know yourself.

When Forever 21 reposts your photo on their website which is sick af but they only post your boobs and leave out your face but it's ok I can't complain. Woohoo!

Fun fact: the first Volkswagen Bus sold in the US in 1950 with a whopping 30 horsepower LOL. And back by popular demand, the new fully electric VW Bus is expected to make it's comeback in 2022. It's called the ID Buzz, not bus. Because it's the new electric buzzzzzz? *Insert bee emoji here* Cute. 

I had the best time on this shoot, it was very special and serendipitous. Thank you guys for reading and stopping by and letting me share the things in this mind of mine.

1960's Go-go Girl

Faux leather mini skort cabby hat newsboy hat ribbed surplice knit sweater thigh high boots gogo girl 1960's 60's mod london

Beauty is timeless. The 1960's was an innovative era for women's fashions. Things got bolder, quirkier. Shorts got shorter in addition to psychedelic prints and colorblock. The iconic mod 60's look originated in London is so feminine and flirty. All I'm missing is some chunky white framed sunglasses. Thanks to the good people at Forever 21 for hooking up your girl. How cool is it that this entire look is from Forever? Well, boots from Public Desire, but you can get them for Forever too!

I've been loving newsboy hats recently--the bigger the better. It's one accessory that instantly elevates an outfit from simple to chic. Mini wrap skorts (skirt shorts) were a big thing in the 60's and allowed girls to look playful yet modest. At last, girls could bend over and adjust their go-go boots with confidence. 

I remember growing up with super strict Asian parents, and was not allowed to wear skirts BUT I COULD WEAR A SKORT. So I had many, many skorts. It felt like a happy medium, a transaction worked out with me and my parents at the tender age of seven lol. Because it was always about fashion. And now I miss my parents. Love you mom and dad!

UPDATE: OMG OMG YOUR GIRL WAS FEATURED ON Forever 21.COM!!! Extremely humbled and utterly grateful to be sponsored and featured by such an influential brand as Forever! There are so many girls out there doing what I'm doing, and it feels SO special to stand out from the rest. Thank you Alejandro Rios for lending me your gifted talents and kind soul. I am living my dream. THANK YOU to everyone reading this for following along on my journey, because good things are meant to be shared. This is just the beginning!
