    Empowering yourself and helping others

    Empowering yourself and helping others Do you know what I feel the best about being on the cooler side of my 40s? It is the confidence to be who I am. I don’t fight with myself anymore. This is me, an uptight, serious Chinese lady with a weird accent when I speak English. But those attributes also made me a hard working person and maybe a bit more memorable one to stand out in the crowd. 😉 //MLE empower tee // black sheer long vest// Chelsea 28 Olivia Palermo brown leather skirt //Toms tan open toe booties //red LV bag // tie bow // It took me my whole life…

    What is your best color?

    What is your best color? A few days ago when I talked to a local designer about featuring her designs on my “I WANT HER CLOSET” TV segment on What’s up Detroit, she said she needs to see what will be the best color on me. It got me thinking because I am ok with pretty much just about every color. I have a rainbow colored closet. 😉 I know most of you are already aware of this TV gig but just in case somebody is new to my blog. You can read What’s Up Detroit Tv host and I want her closet on What’s Up Detroit to catch up…

    Adult Summertime outdoor Play Trends

    Adult Summertime outdoor Play Trends //green and pink dress from C3 creation // Fendi white sunglasses // White flats//hair bow// When was the last time you played outdoors? I guess there are a lot of people who probably can’t even remember. Life gets so busy and we don’t have time for play. Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “It is a happy talent to know how to play.” I sure don’t have this talent. All I have is working hard to try making money and solve problems. 😉 Luckily, I have a husband who knows how to play and relax. He’s good at it. In fact it’s sort of his superpower! I…

    How petite women wear cocktail shorts

    How petite women wear cocktail shorts //Nordstrom black lace vest //Express red shorts // red LV bag // Chloe sunglasses // Black studded sandal heels// In recent years, cocktail shorts have slowly taken the stage of the fashion world.

    How to dress to go shopping

    How to dress to go shopping I know nowadays there are a lot of woman who do their shopping in the comfort and ease of their home through the internet. I have done it too, I mean you can’t beat the convenience. But because I am a petite, and I am super picky I have to be a bit more careful than the average shopper. So I still wind up physically going to a mall or store to touch the fabric, feel the drape and see if it really fits me like I hope. You just can’t get all that from a computer screen. //white cardigan // white graphic tank…

    How petite woman wear a romper //lookbook store Slit Back Romper // Ray Ban sunglasses // red LV bag // black Sam Edelman lace up sandals I know there are a lot of people that like a fun, comfortable romper very much. But I was not that into them last year. And maybe it wasn’t for the best reason, mostly it was because they are not that convenient when it comes time to use the bathroom! It does take longer to undress and it was pretty weird at first when I sat on my toilet basically naked. 😉 The second reason was a bit more practical, it takes skill to…
