In a million years I would never have thought about becoming a TV host. Especially on an English speaking show with my weird Chinese accent. But it seems that it is happening now. I am so grateful for all the amazing things blogging has brought to my life. All of these new and exciting changes and challenges started with an interview/post I did last fall, it was called WHATโ€™S UP DETROIT ON TV 20 VIEWING PARTY. I covered the viewing party and interviewed the hosts of this new program and after that, as they say, “the rest is history”. What really caught my attention was that their mission was to focus on the positive side of Detroit. There are plenty of places to hear the bad news but I have seen some of the Detroit comeback with my own eyes so their message was exactly in line with what I was seeing.

What’s up Detroit airs on TV 20 Detroit and is just getting ready to kick off on season 2. So what does it mean to me? Craziness!!! Aside from my full time teaching job, part time translation job, almost full time blogging and now this TV gig. I have been super busy. I don’t even know how I am juggling all of these balls but it’s probably better that I don’t even have time to think about it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyway, I have to admit that I am loving it. The whole crew is so much fun to hang out with. I never stop laughing when I am with them.

I started to wear more black dresses than before for the TV business. You know I love colors but somehow on TV I just look pretty big. ๐Ÿ˜‰ You know what they say, “if in doubt, wear black”. I got this Black Sleeveless Midi Dress at the Lookbook Store. I had a very similar dress before so I know this cut and style will make my petite body actually look slimmer and taller. But it was hard to see the materials when I ordered it. I thought it was a little bit more formed fabric, but it is very soft and there is not any built in structure like I hoped. I was not sure if my body could handle this tight dress. Lucky I found a black slip dress with spandex from shopbop to wear underneath. And now I finally can wear it with more confidence. The best part? It is only $21 now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you know me, you will know I love layering. So for this black dress, I added on this brown suede trench vest to tone down the sexiness and dressy vibe, and make it more casual for day wear. I wore this look for the viewing party and filming.

How petite woman wear off-the-shoulder tops

How petite woman wear off the shoulder tops

I have covered a few hot trends for this year. ONE BLACK LACE-UP BODYSUIT THREE STYLES, which show you how to use this $17 top to create very different styles. HOW TO LOOK TOUGH YET FEMININE AFTER 40S, what about HOW TO PULL OFF THE ULTIMATE COOL GIRL LOOK, of course DENIM EVERYTHING BUT NOT JEANS COOL NEW WAYS TO WEAR DENIM, and the so hot trend 2016 SPRING TREND REPORT LACE-UP EVERYTHING…Ok. I think I have made my point here. I have written many useful tips for us petite, over 40s or should I say cute and mature women. In fact, just about anybody that wants to keep up with the trends but still keep original can get some great useful info from my blog. And of course, there’s still a lot more to come, so please read on. You’ll be happy you did!

Today, I am going to talk about another hot trend, the off the shoulder. The way to wear the off the shoulder trend for this season is to look for pastel colors. These soft and happy hues are just right for a fresh and cute spring style.

I bought this topshop off the shoulder top at Nordstrom. I simply fell in love with the color and the simplicity of this piece. To me that combination spells versatile and means I can use it to pair with many different outfits.

With a hint of the Bohemian about this trend, the current off-the-shoulder is one of the hottest looks this season and thereโ€™s no reason why everyone shouldnโ€™t join in. But off-the-shoulder tops lead the eye to the shoulders, sometimes making your shoulder seem even wider than they naturally are. And that is a bad news for a petite woman. Because we will look wider and bigger. Big shoulders are great if you’re a football player but not so much for a fashion blogger!

So how to look good with an off the shoulder top ?

1. Avoid any extra attention by pairing one of these tops with a bottom that takes center stage in the conversation. Just like the skirt I paired with. Of course you can wear this top with jeans or shorts, but with a pencil skirt, this is the perfect mix between sexy and sophisticated.

2. Pick materials that drape in a flattering way so they will not create more volume on your chest and waist area.

3. Pick one with a built in waist line to create the balanced proportion like these ones I wore last summer.

4. Wear it with a fit skinny pants or a short shorts if your off the shoulder top is a little bit long and loose.
