There are so many fun ways to dress up basic clothing pieces that can result in a multitude of different outfit outcomes! For example, in this outfit, I paired a simple white long sleeve shirt with a black pencil skirt. To spice things up, I threw on a deep red longline cardigan, adorable tights, and some jewelry with different tones and amounts of delicacy. This gave a simple outfit a more “put-together” look; I was ready to hit the stores at Santana Row wearing this.

Hair Curler Instawave / Sweater Uniqlo / Perfume Chanel Eau Fraiche

Hi readers! I’ve received a lot of hair-tutorial requests lately and question as to how I curl my hair. There are two methods I use at home to curl my hair. I use traditional hair curlers (I have one 1-inch barrel curler from Revlon, and another one from a beauty store in Shanghai). I also discovered a second method; recently I’ve been using KISS Instawave technology to curl my hair. I’ll be sharing my process and tips on curling (accumulated over many frustrating hair experiences) in this post! On a side note, I am trying to expand my blog by adding more beauty and lifestyle posts. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or post requests! Let’s begin :)

I always find myself amazed at how different one can feel when wearing different types of clothing. I received this mink-fur shawl as a present during a dinner party in Shanghai last summer. There were little bursts of rain throughout summer, so I would bring this beautiful shawl with me to protect myself against the temperamental weather. I fell in love with the girl I became when wearing this in Shanghai;  whether it was while strolling through downtown districts at night, or singing hours of karaoke with my cousins, I found a certain elation while draped in this rich, chocolate wool. I would always feel like a glamorous actress of the fifties when wearing this out, as if every corner held an awaiting surprising to be greeted by a lipstick traced smile.

Black Hat Tidestore/ Bag Tidestore/ Tights ChicAudrey/ Shorts+Cardigan UO / Shoes Guess

I have been meaning to get a black felt hat since this summer, and Tidestore was kind enough to send me one. I have been wearing it constantly, and I feel like it adds ten layers of mystery to my look. Now, I don’t drink coffee- I drink coffee while wearing a black hat. Now, I don’t just simply read- I read while wearing a black hat. I’m pretty sure this hat will be my joie de l’automne (happiness of the fall!)
