Love Train

Hello Friends,

Sweater weather or jacket weather is really here. It just started and were getting sick of it already…like literally. Coughing, sneezing, feeling lightheaded..yes better shield up friends! Allergy season is here!

Been really happy with the progress we’ve been doing with branding ourselves. We started getting jewellery and clothing collaborations and photographers and videographers are wanting to work with us. We couldn’t be more grateful for all these blessings.

Cancun Trip 4/5

Hello Friends,

We just had an exhausting week of planning and executing a surprise 60th birthday party for one of our Mom’s (Khay’s). We had a lot of help from our family and friends and all of the hard work paid off for sure. She ended up crying as soon as she walked in the door seeing all of her old friends and family. Some of them she hasn’t seen in a while too. That’s another read for y’all next time.

Guns & Roses

Hello Friends,

Starting to feel a little warmer..just a little, in Vancouver. Well compared to -3, we are now 8. So…that’s a good sign. Right?!

Back in the grind now and hopefully we can be more consistent with our blog this time. This winter felt really long..and snowy. This is our first year doing shoots and also our first winter doing shoots outside. It’s fun but it gets really cold most of the time. But we usually try to time ourselves every time we do these shoots. 2 rules, try not to get sick and have lots of fun!

Denim Overalls

September 21, 2015

Hi My Loves,

Just like that…my 2-week staycation will end tonight. It didn’t feel like a staycation I’ve been out everyday, it was definitely an everyday adventure in the city. Tiring but fun…then tomorrow, I’m back at work.

One of my escapades during my vacay was a night till morning adventure with friends in downtown wearing my overalls. Jumpers or Overalls has always been one of my fave, it is such a unique piece. It’s comfortable and easy to style.

I usually wear it all year round. I wear my studded sandals with it during spring/summer and my suede booties during fall/winter. Layering during the cold season is also another fun way of styling this overalls.

Lips aren’t sealed: There’s a lot of misconception when it comes to rompers, jumpsuit, jumpers, or overalls. Sometimes I hear people call jumpers, rompers. Jumpers may come in as a full length pants, shorts or skirts and is meant to be paired with a top. Jumpsuit or Rompers is a one piece garment and is usually worn alone. Rompers is a combined top and short while Jumpsuit is a combined top and trousers.

Rock it once, Rock it twice, Rock it multiple times: From Day to night look. Pairing it with a tee to get a casual day look or pair it with a lace top to get the chic night look.

Full Skirt

July 13, 2015

Hi My Loves,

Hectic Schedule last week. Then today I received a not so good news..I was hoping things would turn out the way I wanted it to..but it didn’t. So I was getting hit by Monday blues…then I thought to myself..everything happens for a reason. Besides it’s Monday, awesome things will sure to come this week…then I remember that this weekend I’ll be spending it with awesome people and that brought me back to my happy self again. Thank you for all the love that I received today…made me write about my little celebration of love with my Hugs.

Two weeks ago Hugs and I had a little celebration for our 13 years and 7th monthsary 🙂 I came straight from work so I just brought an extra top since I was wearing all black, way too hot! I kept my Black Midi-Length Full Skirt and my bowler hat of course!

Lips aren’t sealed: I tend to like fashion pieces that won’t do because of my height. hahaha I usually end up hemming my clothes to make it tailored to my body. Just like when something is on trend it doesn’t necessarily mean it will look good on me. I have to choose my battle when it comes to choosing clothes to flatter my body. My supposedly full calf-length skirt is one of them. I literally had to chop off 5 inches to get the length that I wanted. I’ve worn this skirt for the first time last year on my friend’s wedding and you will see the difference on how literally how long it is. haha

Rock it once, Rock it twice, Rock it multiple times: Dress it up or dress it down this 50’s inspired full skirt can be worn anywhere; in a wedding, usually at work, & even on dates 🙂

Couple Outfits

May 27, 2015

Hi My Loves,

I saw this couple and I just had to take a photo and post it on my blog. I was running out of time because I was on my way to the gym and I didn’t want to bother their date by my ridiculous questions about their outfit. I just find it really awesome for other couples who loves couple outfits too…yes blame it on my Asian genes. This couple though. Outfits on point! down to their leather backpacks. It’s soooo me and Hugs!!! We’ve always liked matching our clothes or even just the accessories. Were just cheezy that way. We’ve been matching for almost 14 years, sometimes we don’t even plan it. We’d be walking out of the house and we just matched. hahaha

Lips aren’t sealed: If you’re with someone who wants to also wear matching outfits but they’re too embarassed that people will totally make fun of them…try matching the colour of your clothes. A couple outfit doesn’t necessarily mean you have to wear the exact same thing. Matching the other person’s outfit colours is still considered as a couple outfit. Yes, because I SAY SO. hehehe. If they’re really uncomfortable with it you can still match just your accessories like your shoes or backpack..ok..fine even just your watch. that’s a start.

Rock it once, Rock it twice, Rock it multiple times: Backpacks are always fresh.

Faux Leather Jacket

March 23, 2015

Hi My Loves,

My best purchase for fall 2014, my faux leather biker jacket with asymmetric zip front, zipped sleeves and side pockets from Topshop. I bought it for $70, original price was $129. The secret is…CLEARANCE!!! 🙂

Lips aren’t sealed: Retailers usually go on clearance 2 months before the season changes. Stores get products 2-4 months in advance. Pre-Spring products arrives in stores as early as December. The trends in Spring are most likely on clearance starting February.

Rock it once, Rock it twice, Rock it multiple times:  May it be a date night with your man or date night with your favourite guy.
