    leather jacket and skinny jeans

    Leather jacket and skinny jeans I love leather fashion and you can check out some of my other leather fashion posts here, here and here. I love the combination of a leather jacket, graphic tee and skinny jeans to create the comfy but still trendy weekend casual look. If it’s a black jacket, I will pick lighter jeans. If I’m wearing a darker shade of jeans, I like to pair them with a brown or wine color leather jacket. Anyway, keeping a nice contrast will be more interesting. What is your go to weekend look?

    How to pull off fringe fashion trend 2015

    How to pull off fringe fashion trend 2015 Fringes are one of the hottest trends this year because of the 70’s comeback styles. What is your memory about fringes? I guess mine is very different with yours. I was born in the mid 70’s and back then, China was a real 3rd world country. We were struggling to find food and shelter, so at that point fashion is really not that important. My first memory about fringes has to go back to when I was very little. In my hometown, during Chinese New Year there would be one or two shows on the main street. The local folk artists would…

    weekend brunch casual look

    Weekend brunch casual look Two weekends ago we were at the small German town of Frankenmuth, Michigan celebrating one of my family members’ birthday. If you’re going away for a weekend, my first tip is to take a look at this amazing canvas weekender bag. I call myself “The backyard model” because I was pretty shy when I was taking the photos. When other people look at me, I will feel very uncomfortable when taking a picture. I haven’t found any reasons yet but I am working on it. I started getting better when we were in Cancun last month but my progress is pretty slow. I love the real…

    leather skirt for spring

    Leather skirt for spring Raise your hands if you love leather! I will raise both of my hands. 😉 I grew up with my older brother. My parents were too busy making a living so my older brother was my babysitter. All my clothes actually were hand-me -down from him too. So I looked like a boy when I was young. I mean even when I was in my high school. I guess that is why I feel I am more like a man sometimes. I am very focused, not dramatic at all. And I am very calm and never give up. Lol, sounds like a very boring guy. But…
