Just a quick hello to show you a preview of KTRcollection which will be on stage at KSW Runway this Saturday, September 8th! I have been locked in the house for the past 2.5 weeks (which felt like eternity) to perfect my designs and they are finally finish! Whew! It’s such a relief to be done, but I know this is only the beginning. My mom told me a long time ago in order to be successful in life, I’ll need to dedicate myself 200% and make a lot of sacrifices. Thank goodness for supportive parents, true friends and of course my wonderful husband who takes my photos and puts up with the madness of what we called home lately (sniff, sniff :). Ok, enough of my whining!

For more details on the show, please visit www.keary.org and if you’re in the SF Bay Area, tickets can be purchased HERE. Hope to see you guys at the show! Kisses!

In the Mix

Matching? Not on this blog! :)

What I absolutely adore about fashion as of late is seeing a lot of fab ladies (and let’s not forget the fashionable men out there) around the globe letting go of preconceived boundaries in favor of experimentation. Everything is getting brighter, bolder, and louder. Although it’s not a brand spanking new trend, one popular product of this movement is mixing patterns: Polka dots, stripes, floral, and animal prints are a few of my favorite patterns to play with…I love floral and stripes so it was natural to mix these two patterns together.

What are your favorite prints to mix?

Yea yea I know, an alien is about to pop out of my tummy any minute now.

I’m madly in love with the fullness of this skirt. When I first saw it on ASOS I knew it’s a piece I had to add to my wardrobe… It’s fun, girlie and something I’ll wear many times. With the skirt being high waisted and very mini-ish, it gives the illusion that my legs are longer than they really are. Plus the camel color pumps help elongate the legs.

Speaking of ASOS, this is quite embarrassing but it took me awhile to realize the correct pronunciation of the popular online store’s name. I have been calling it A-S-O-S (saying each letter) instead of Ay-SOS! My bestie and I even jokingly made fun of someone who pronounced it Ay-SOS (the nerve of us!).

Neon Glow

Just when I thought neon hues can’t get any brighter, I saw this Sparkle and Fade pleated skirt glowing from the little corner at Urban Outfitters. It also comes in tangerine and blue which are also very pretty (and a lot brighter in person than it’s displayed online).

My 5 sad little macaroons were left after I divulged the other half of the box

Top: Bar III white sweater (similar-ish here)
Bottom: Urban Outfitters “Sparkle and Fade” neon pleated mini skirt
Purse: Milly Kelsey satchel
Shoes: Colin Stuart ankle strap sandals
Accessories: Bracelets – Spikes from eBay, Bar III neon bangles.

I was going for a casual laid back look so I paired this fun skirt with an over-sized comfy sweater from Bar III, but I kind of fail in the casual department when I threw on my favorite pair of nude heels…Although I love a cute pair of comfy flats, I just can’t seem to resist the call of high heels. Even though they can be very painful, it’s something about them that makes me feel so feminine, confident, and sexy. It also doesn’t hurt to add a few more inches to my height!

Ladies, are you addicted to heels and how does it make you feel when you wear them?
