    Scent Trunk Review Color and Grace Fashion Link Up

    Scent Trunk Review Color and Grace Fashion Link Up What is your first memory about perfume? Mine was not that pleasant. If you have been reading my blog you will know there was not much fashion in China before the 1980s. Perfume was very much a luxury thing for normal Chinese back then. When I was young, our family had pretty tough times but also some good years too. I remember one year my mom bought her first bottle of perfume and I hated it so much because it smelled awful! 😉 I found my first favorite perfume back in 2000. One day I was strolling down a street where…

    Chinese street style Shanghai June 2015

    Chinese street style Shanghai June 2015 My student told me I MUST watch the show called FRESH OFF THE BOAT. I watched a couple of episodes and kinda liked it.

It is the first American television situation comedy starring an Asian-American family. Since I am going to show you the newest street style from Shanghai, I felt it can be a relative title for it!…

Today we are going to talk about how to make a crop top and a mini skirt look more polished by adding on a white long jacket. The real sexy is not revealing everything, but creating an image of what are not showing. 😉 This rule is working perfectly for us who don’t have the high school figure any more. Are you going to…

    leather skirt for spring

    Leather skirt for spring Raise your hands if you love leather! I will raise both of my hands. 😉 I grew up with my older brother. My parents were too busy making a living so my older brother was my babysitter. All my clothes actually were hand-me -down from him too. So I looked like a boy when I was young. I mean even when I was in my high school. I guess that is why I feel I am more like a man sometimes. I am very focused, not dramatic at all. And I am very calm and never give up. Lol, sounds like a very boring guy. But…

    Petite fashion—crop top and long skirt

    Petite fashion—crop top and long skirt I am not sure if you already noticed, but I am a petite and I am only 5 feet tall. In China we believe the shorties have the better brains. 😉 Anyway, For a petite person like me, long skirts can be pretty challenging. But when I paired it with a crop top, the problem was solved. 🙂 My endless driving story continues… Tag! You’re it! Northern Michigan isn’t what you could call mountainous but there are some pretty good sized hills; actually quite a lot of them. So when they were building the Interstate highway system it seemed a lot easier to have…

    What to wear for a St. Patrick’s Day party

    One of the interesting things I like about American life is that most people always seem willing to join in if a party is involved! I noticed soon after I moved from China that there are so many unusual holidays, but people are happy to help celebrate. When my husband tried to explain to me about St. Patrick’s Day I was very confused. Most people in China had heard about Valentine’s Day and even Christmas but what was this holiday? What is a leprechaun and where is that pot of gold? When I looked into the history there was something about snakes, how did this become a holiday or a…

    Pullover and long skirt

    It’s all downhill from here! I would guess that most of the people reading this learned how to drive a car when they were teenagers. Probably you went to a driving school and had professional instructors and special cars with warning signs and safety features. I am not most people. I didn’t learn until I was quite a bit out of my teens and my future husband was my teacher. And his little old car was my classroom! For my first time behind the steering wheel we went to the nearby cemetery in our town. This may sound unusual but in fact it was a pretty good place to learn.…
