    What to wear on Chinese New Year outfits recap

    What to wear on Chinese New Year outfits recap Last year I read that New York City already listed Chinese New Year as a public holiday. When will that happen throughout the whole country? Maybe never but I certainly hope so. Anyway, you can read all about Chinese new year and my outfit ideas here, here, and here. The bottom line is just make it simple, Chinese New Year is based on the lunar calendar so every year the date will be different. But it is always in either January or February. This year it is on February 8. The Chinese use 12 animals to represent the 12 zodiac signs.…

    A Cape for every season fashion linkup

    A Cape for every season fashion linkup I am not a Superhero. OK, at least not a well known one! But, wait a minute, I do have a secret alter ego. By day, I’m an awesome middle school teacher and then at night and on the weekends, I help save poor helpless women from bad fashion choices as an awesome fashion blogger! Wow, that explains a LOT! Like why I love capes. Somehow this traditionally men’s garment gives women so much confidence and style and (dare I say it?) power! I have a few capes. Yeah, I know, you’re not surprised. Anyway, I have at least one I can wear…

    One year blog anniversary and fashion linkup

    One year blog anniversary and fashion linkup My blog is 1 year old today. Rather than tell you how I feel, I prefer to reflect on the milestones and my favorite two outfits from each month with you.

I know how incredibly busy the whole world is so when someone takes time to leave a comment on my blog I REALLY appreciate it!) I decided to post everyday. How hard can THAT be? Well…

    PETITE FASHION TRICKS NUDE SHOES

    PETITE FASHION TRICKS NUDE SHOES This is the 3rd post of this Petite Fashion Tricks series. You can read the previous two here and here.. For a petite person, I’ve covered playing with the length of your clothes and creating or better defining a waist line. It can also be helpful if you can somehow create a long legged silhouette. It’s been said the perfect human body height should be nine times the length of your head. I come up about 2 and a half heads short! How do you measure up? I guess for most of us who don’t have a super model’s figure and height, we wouldn’t mind…

    Pink fringe bag

    Pink fringe bag If you have been following me for a while, you probably will have noticed this pink fringe bag. It is the most popular one among all my bag collection. Even my gold Valentino can’t compare with this $30 bag. Lol! I have a golden rule for organizing my closet to avoid clutter. That is however many pieces I buy, I need to get rid of the same number. Other than donating to a local charity, I sometimes drop things at thrift or consignment stores too. I found this bag at one of these store more than a year ago. It was brand new with the original tag…

    Exclusive Interview with My Arm Charms

    Exclusive Interview with My Arm Charms It seems like my blog anniversary is always a special day for me. On the day of my two month anniversary, I received an email from Leslie, the owner of My Arm Charms. She showed big interest in my blog and asked if we can work together. As you all know, I just celebrated my 4 month anniversary a few days ago, so I am basically still a newbie to this blog business. But after I saw all of her cute and affordable bracelets online, I decided to give it a try. My requirement is I must use the bracelet first to see if…
