I admire people who dare to be 100% true to themselves. In this big judgemental world, it’s hard to speak up what we really think, stand on what we really believe in, and wear what we really like. Understanding ourselves is the first step when we dealing criticism, even compliments. But let’s face it, learning who we are is a life long lesson. While we are learning, be out there! Experiment, enjoy, and don’t take yourself so serious.
Fashion is not only a serious business, it’s also about fun and break-through. Leather, animal prints, and lace are three totally different elements. They present power, oomph, and femininity. I put them together, for the craziness deeply inside of me. Turns out, it’s not so crazy!
Was there a situation that you were not able to speak up what you really think ? Share with us in the comment below! Thank you for reading friend!

This outfit is inspired by Lichtenstein and his pop art. Roy Lichtenstein is an American painter, sculptor, printmaker and decorative artist. His paintings based on the Motifs and procedures of comic strips and advertisements made him one of the central figures of American pop art.

If you know me on Instagram, you may know that I went to Salton Sea for a fashion photo shoot two weeks ago. For one or two great pictures, we drove more than two hours to get there, had the makeup and hair done, found the perfect spots for different outfits, and shoot more than three hours in 110 degree hot weather. The whole experience made me rethink of the value of a powerful picture , as well as the hard work behind it. When the photos came out, I’d love to share them with you here on my blog. But working with professional photographer, stylist, make-up and hair artists, made me want to try something new on my own personal style posts , like what I have here.
Luckily Fullerton Arboretum is very close to my place, so we didn’t drive far. However, I did spend more time and effort on the style. The crop top and skirts are both from H&M and I had this pair of Reports shoes for a long time. With the right background, lighting, and accessories, I am pretty satisfied with the turnout. Let me know what do you think of this set of photos !

The puff dress is a must have piece for your summer wardrobe. Not that you can wear it by itself, but also there are many ways you can match it up with other pieces. I simply added a shirt here, but I tried to wear it with tops and sweaters in the past. Wearing a coat on the top of a puffy dress is also a great idea in a windy day ! How do you wear your puffy dress ? Let me know in the comment below. Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful Wednesday!
Happy Wednesday everyone! Above are four swim-wears I found this week:

It was a sunny day when Celina, Gaby and I explored downtown LA. We had brunch at Urth Caffe, which is famous by its organic coffee and hand selected teas. For me, it’s the decoration and coffee-art that makes it stand out from other coffee shops. I ordered Mocha and it was as good as what I make at home ( which doesn’t happen most of the time) , so I was satisfied. After brunch, we tried to find somewhere to take OOTD pictures, the art district blowed my mind! I just wanted to walk street by street to see those amazing art! If you are interested, here is a great website showcase the LA street art .
About my outfit, I put together some old pieces and sticked with the black and white theme. Both of the white shirt and hi-low dress are made by light, flowing fabric. Since the shirt is white and it’s easy to see the under-garment, I added a black vest. The buttons and the belt added gold glow to this outfit.
Back to coffee, Michael and I own an expresso machine and we usually get coffee beans from Kean. However we love to try new coffee brands. Let me know what’s your favoriate coffee shop and why.
