Silver Streaks


Thakoon shorts, Giorgio Armani silk top, Isabel Marant zebra heels, Chanel bag

Integrating shorts into the category of cocktail attire is something I'm into right now. The second I spotted these blown up Thakoon shorts, I couldn't stop thinking about wearing them not only at day but more paramountly, dressed up at night. They are just puffy enough to feel like nothing against the skin. I can't say the metallic streaks on them are just silver; they are gold at certain angles in light. That's pleasantly deceiving.

Black Halo


Black Halo dress & Christian Louboutin heels

Taking a transient break from the all-white concept I can't get enough of at the moment. So I decided to wear this dress for no apparent occasion but merely for the sake of recollecting how perfect it feels on. I swear I will never get rid of it, because I feel like it's made for me, which is not always the case with some other dresses I have tried. And duh, the red! It's ideal with something along the lines of these spiked, mesh shoes that somehow evoke weaponry; but no worries, they're totally harmless.

Sun-dressing


Marc by Marc Jacobs dress, Sergio Rossi shoes, Chanel sunglasses, Yves Saint Laurent ring, Hermès & Louis Vuitton bracelets

School is over!!!!! Can't believe next year is my last year in high school. The first few days of summer break have been a daze and it is initially difficult to assimilate the freedom of summer; I don't know what to do with myself. I almost feel adrift without any work to do (not that I'm asking for any). I suppose I'm focusing on just doing whatever I like all day long.  A couple weeks from now, I will be flying over to Barcelona for several days until I board a ship for a 24-day Mediterranean cruise; I've been awaiting this trip for a year now!

Do You Dream in Black & White


Alexander Wang shirt & heels, J Brand jeans, Hermès belt & bracelet

Wearing white on white again and happily so. This time in way that evokes refined space suits. I kept the massive block of white origami folds intact with this ever-handy collier de chien belt. But the main objective here is to accentuate these new shoes with their stark beauty comprised of straps, cutouts, and a perfect combination of angles and arcs. I would wear them with...pretty much anything.

High Contrast


All Saints skirt, H&M shirt, Hermès collier de chien belt & bracelet, Chanel bag & boots, Prada sunglasses

A stark contrast of black and white is currently a much needed counterpoint from riotous, clashing prints and colors I have seen this season. This fits somewhere between the black and white motif present in this fall's 3.1 Phillip Lim collection and Louis Vuitton's fall 2010 mid-length a-line skirts. When I put this look together, I was thinking voluminous silhouettes tamed around the waist, definitely Coco Chanel, and of course, elements of mirroring silver throughout for a sleek technological touch if that makes sense.

Light & Iridescence


Theyskens' Theory blazer & jeans, Robert Rodriguez top, Chanel bag & boots, Prada sunglasses

I feel like there is no exact definition of beauty and the forms in which it exists are boundless. Simply the way light strikes an object or the alluring silhouettes in nature that are out there every day never fail to absorb my attention. As long as people capitalize on and have a complete inner sense of who they are while making it perceptible on the outside, beauty is a universal concept that people can embrace and appreciate.
