    In 2016 when I was a TV co-host, I have written a post called What to wear to a rooftop bar, you can read it to see my summer rooftop bar look, and my shorter hair style too! Lol! There are so many new restaurants, bars, and hotels popping up in Detroit these days. Last Friday I was invited to the private preview at The Monarch Club. This Detroit’s newest rooftop bar is opening just in time for the warm weather that’s on the way to the area. The Monarch Club is located in the Metropolitan Building at the top of the Element Hotel. The hotel opened in the building…

    Sporty Chic Winter Street Style with Adidas

    Wondering how to put together a sporty chic winter look with adidas? Read on to find out. This post is partnered with adidas, but all the opinions are my own. There is one trend that I grow to love so much since two years ago, it was the Sporty Chic looks. Being an over 40s petite woman, I am often finding myself drowning into the elegant and chic styles. Sporty looks just seemed too young or too casual for me at first. But after I have built the gym life into my normal daily routine, I noticed my point of view about the sporty style has changed. The sporty style…

Each of them has very unique styles and never go over the top by using too many trendy pieces. So let’s talk about this winter being an over 40s petite girl how to dress like a French women. I have been to Paris for a few times, and there were a lot of locals mistakened me as one of them. Lol! I guess I am pretty good at camouflaging. You can…

    Burgundy Velvet Dress for Christmas Party/Date/Gathering

    I hope you are all set with the gift shopping, wrapping and in a great mood for this holiday season! With the great help from my family, friends and my assistant, this year I started the holiday preparation really early. My Christmas tree was up even before Thanksgiving. Then I ordered majority gifts on Black Friday and wrapped all of them right after receiving them. My living room looks so festival with all the gifts under the tree, the lights and the Christmas decors. On my music playlist, the Christmas hits, peaceful Christmas piano and Christmas coffee house are on the heavy rotation. I even watched 5 Christmas movies with…

    2018 Fall Trend || Snakeskin Is The Animal Print to Wear

    There are a few seasonal trends that are in year after year. Animal prints are one of them for the colder seasons. For some reasons, when we mention animal prints, we often refer to Leopard prints. Of course, leopard prints are timeless and will never be out of fashion. But this year, the hottest animal print is snakeskin. Are you just regretting because you donated all your old wardrobe? Lol, those 80s staples are coming back very strong. Probably look into your mom’s closet to see if you can fish out some of this print. For the transitioning season, I like to use some of my summer wardrobes still, but…

    How To Wear Bell Bottom Pants As A Petite Women

    Bell bottom pants, or some people call them as flare pants, have been one of the hottest trends for this season. There is no doubt that this dramatic style is the best way to make a statement, but the same time, it is a difficult style to pull it off for petite women since they may make us look shorter sometimes. Here are a few tricks that I used. 1. Pick High Waisted Bell Bottom Pants High waisted pants will create an illusion of taller and leaner look. 2. Pick Cropped Bell Bottom Pants Showing some skin at the bottom can create an illusion of taller and leaner look as…

    Find Out Which Colors Flatter You Most with LFB Color #1

    You all know that I love colors, especially bold colors. That is why my blog is called Color and Grace. 😉 I was told that back in the 50s and 60s every woman had to learn a little about colors in order to pick the most flattering ones for their wardrobe and makeup. I guess that is why that time period had so many fashion icons and classic styles. Those women really knew themselves and were good at picking out the best color to allow them to reach their full beauty potential. Nowadays, it seems like we have forgotten the science of color. Most women just stick with natural colors…

    What To Wear On Valentine Day For Women Over 40

    To be honest with you, my late husband and I never celebrated Valentine’s Day. We felt every day was Valentine’s Day for us so there was really no need to fight the crowed or pay ridiculous high price for roses or dinner. We didn’t exchanged gifts either but we did have nice home cooked dinner with a bottle of wine. For this year’s Valentine’s Day, I will be in China with my family to celebrate Chinese New Year. By the way, this year’s Chinese New Year will be on 2/16 and the color for Chinese New Year is RED too! 😉 Although I won’t be celebrating this year’s Valentine’s Day,…
