    How petite woman wear a romper

    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…

    What to wear to a baby shower in the Spring //Cat print top//Joe’s skinny white jeans//Nine West red suede bow heels//Turtle necklace//LV red bag// You may not believe it but I have never been to a baby shower before this past Saturday. First, they just don’t have baby showers in China. When I first saw this phrase years ago I had a hard time to understand the meaning. Taking a shower with a baby? Or babies rain down from the sky? My imagination went wild and still couldn’t get it. Second, I am already 42 years old so most of my relatives or friends already passed the age for having…

    How to wear white lace in a modern way

    How to wear white lace in a modern way? I have loved lace, since a very early age. Lace is just so feminine, sophisticated and a little bit XXX TubeV sexy. But the opposite side is, lace can look a little grandmotherish. Nobody wants to look like that. And I should know. I’m a real grandmother. I would rather not advertise that with my wardrobe. The key is to keep myself looking young forever. 😉 //lookbookstore White Lace Two Piece Dress // WHBM tan trench vest // Red LV bag // yellow BCBG studded heels // I had an eye on this

    How to wear wide-leg cropped pants

    How to wear wide-leg cropped pants I am only 5 feet zero and a quarter (minus the quarter), but I like to challenge a lot of difficult trends or styles that are usually bad news for a petite person. For example, the maxi dresses, or the midi skirts. There are a lot of people who think they are hard to pull off. And yes they are. But that is the fun part about fashion, daring to create something impossible. And today I am trying to pull off another hard one for a petite frame like mine, the wide-leg cropped pants. //Green Halston Heritage blouse// WHBM cream wide leg cropped pants//…

    Kate Middleton favorite brand L.K. Bennett

    Kate Middleton favorite brand L.K. Bennett The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is such a modern icon from the British Royal Family. She brought a much needed breath of fresh air to not just this serious family, but also to the world. I am very sure I am not the only fan of her classy and lively style. One thing about her I really like is she supports local English designers and brands. She doesn’t just wear the most expensive labels, although she certainly could choose whatever and whomever she likes from around the world. I mean what brand anywhere wouldn’t love to be seen on a real live princess?…
