    The Best Choker Necklace Trends How to Wear a Choker

    The Best Choker Necklace Trends How to Wear a Choker Thanks to an overall ’90s resurgence, this choker‘s a trend that’s been creeping back. In my memory, it is always associated with the dark smoky eyes and a lot of metal accessories. It is kind of a symbol of the punk rock scene for me. But in fact, the choker can be made of a variety of materials including velvet, lace, pearls, rhinestone or leather to dress up or down for everyday cool girls. So there’s a very good reason your favorite ’90s staple has somehow gotten huge again. It adds a little bit of an edgy (think “rock star”)…

    Hat and Fascinator Designer Rachelle Marie Willnus Interview

    Hat and Fascinator Designer Rachelle Marie Willnus Interview Derby Hats by Rachelle/ Black studded jacket/ Loft graphic sweater/WHBM BLUSH FULL SKIRT/NINE WEST STUDDED HEELS/YELLOW STUDDED CROSS BODY BAG I had never heard about the Kentucky Derby when I lived in China. The first time these words appeared in my life was 3 years after I moved to America. There was a local design competition and the theme was the Kentucky Derby. My husband/English teacher gave me a mini lesson about the meaning and basic cultural concept. When he started to pull up some photos online, I was like, come on, of course I know this. At least I know about…

    Larimar bracelet review and fashion linkup

    Larimar bracelet review and fashion linkup Last weekend I had an interview with one of our local e-magazines. There were quite a few questions but one that stuck out was this: “If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would it be?” I didn’t even need to think twice for this. I hate cold weather. When I was growing up in the far northern part of China, winter was so harsh and the frostbite would cover my feet and hands. That was one of the main reasons why, when I finished my university, I left my frigid hometown to move south to Shanghai. At last, I was…

    AIBI watch review and fashion linkup

    AIBI watch review and fashion linkup AAAHHHHHHH!!!!! There’s a strange woman in our house! There she is! Right there; in the mirror! Yes, that girl with the short hair looks very different to me. I haven’t been to a hair salon in two years and I have had long hair for more than 6 years. So I woke up last Saturday and decided it was time to change that. I needed to shake it up and create a new me. So I chopped about 10 inches off and have donated it to Pantene to make a wig for someone who maybe lost their hair because they’re going through chemo. I…

    Firmoo giveaway+Fashion link up

    Firmoo giveaway+Fashion link up I rarely enter any giveaways; because I am lazy and some of the giveaway requirements are just ridiculous. I hate to follow more than 5 people on all their social media. I easily have to spend more than a half hour to enter a giveaway, so thanks but no thanks, it is not worth it. But I did break my own rule for my dear husband recently. See how powerful love is? Anyway, I worked with firmoo.com back in May, you can read that post here. I also attached a few photos below. For those of you who are not familiar with FirmOO.com, they are an…

    Bring me happiness Happy 4th of July to everybody who lives in the U.S.A! For today’s fashion gossip, I would like to talk about happiness! Lol! A VERY serious topic! Happiness can be pretty easy and simple for me; a sunny day, a nice meal with my family, a favorite song, working in my garden or scoring a great piece of fashion treasure like the one I am wearing on my neck today! 😉 I came across Happiness Boutique about a month ago! It’s the similar story of how I find other cool stuff. I saw some blogger wearing a very cute necklace and clicked on the link. After the…
