    Shopping Spring Fashion at Meijer with Stacy London – Part 1

    Shopping Spring Fashion at Meijer with Stacy London – Part 1 I have been working with Meijer on several projects since last year. A couple weeks ago I got an email from them. After I read it, I almost fell off of my chair. What?!!! They were asking me to meet with their Massini fashion line spokesperson, Stacy London! The same Stacy London who had hosted the “What Not To Wear” show on TLC? Heck YES! I watched so many of her shows, she even helped me learn English by watching them when I first moved to the USA. She is basically my fashion AND English teacher. 😉 In more…

    Timeless White Dress Shirt by Queen Anne Fontaine

    Timeless White Dress Shirt by Queen Anne Fontaine There’s no other closet staple that’s as timeless or as versatile as the white button-down shirt. And who knows best how to make a white dress shirt look good on a woman? I have to say, the answer must be Anne Fontaine. Falling in love with a brand is just like falling for a person. There must be some connection or click. There are a lot of people asking me to describe my own style. I always refer myself as fun, graceful (of course) and polished. As you can see from the two looks I am wearing, Anne Fontaine designs are above…

    How to Transition Your Wardrobe from Winter to Spring

    How to Transition Your Wardrobe from Winter to Spring I know for most of the areas, it is Spring already. But in Michigan, we are still holding on to the tale of winter. My heart is already fully in Spring mode, but the weather is just not cooperating. 😉 So today we are going to talk about how to transition your wardrobe from winter to Spring and show off your Spring spirit. While we’re on the topic of wardrobes, I really do need to get a new one. The door on my old one doesn’t close properly. I’ve visited stores and come across websites like antiquesworld.co.uk, so I feel like…

    How to Wear a Sweatshirt to Work

    How to Wear a Sweatshirt to Work Don’t call me crazy. Yes, I will wear this outfit to work. 😉 Luckily, our dress code at work is not super strict so there is some room for our creativity and personality. To make a sweatshirt look sharp, it first must fit well. An over sized-sweatshirt will cause you a lot of difficulty if you’re trying to pull off this look. Since the sweatshirt is casual, it’s best to keep the rest of the outfit more formal to make it suitable for work. Black pants are always fine, but I prefer green or white for this look for a little more pizazz.…

    3 Colors Rule::Black+Brown+Red

    3 Colors Rule::Black+Brown+Red French women may not agree with me, but I always like the 3 colors rule to create an outfit. It is simply because more colors are adding on more dimensions to a look. Different layers, textures and colors bring the excitement to an outfit. For this look, I like to keep natural but still fun, so I started it with the sweater. There are already two colors, so I just needed to add the 3rd one. I love contrasting colors as well. For example, light color with dark color. Since the brown is pretty light, I picked black as the 3rd color. After this color theme was…

    The Color Game :: Green Faux Fur Jacket & Red LV bag

    The Color Game :: Green Faux Fur Jacket & Red LV bag Yes, I am back and you can see why I was out here. For today’s look. I love all the colors play against each others. The bright yellow background, the green faux fur jacket, and the red bag. They are all bold but still in a settle way. Those photos were taken by my husband several weeks ago before he passed away. We were both very excited about finding another cool photo spot nearby. The yellow building is an India street food restaurant and we talked about to try someday. It has been very hard for me and…
