White Party

Thursday, October 27, 2016

I remember hustling through three photo shoots on this day. Michelle and I started at the Getty Villa, then Malibu beaches and ended at Beverly Hills. I am excited to partner up with Black Halo again for another red-carpet look featuring this luxurious white gown.

Sweet Queen

Monday, October 24, 2016

Explored the sidewalks at the Arts District recently. I was amazed at how the weather stayed in the 80s throughout September. When I used to live in Virginia, I could not get away without at least a light jacket.

Long Beach

Saturday, October 15, 2016

I visited Long Beach recently to attend the Padre restaurant opening! The event was held on this gorgeous rooftop that had an amazing rustic atmosphere. Not to mention, we were served delicious Latin food and tasted tequila-mixed cocktails. Every corner of the rooftop was decorated with vibrant florals and string lights were hung above our tables. We were overlooking the beautiful city while we celebrated Padre!

VICI's adorable tie-dyed kimono was fun, fitting and easy to wear. It featured a deep-V back and killer baby-blue allover. Unfortunately, it was also very sheer without decent lining. I loved its silhouette but I would definitely recommend adding a slip underneath!

Be sure to support Bead Relief! I wore the Saving Innocence Survivor Campaign - Devine's Bracelet to raise awareness for child sex trafficking. 25% of your purchase on Bead Relief will be donated to a good cause. More information here.

Vanity Fair: Pre-Emmy Panel

Sunday, October 9, 2016

The innovative space at Platform by Culver City is where Vanity Fair held its annual Pre-Emmy event. The event was on September 17th and lasted about eight hours! Each hour had its own segment of interviews and panel Q&A. The bit that I enjoyed most was the Vanity Fair editors panel. Coming from a television fanatic myself, I had a great time learning from the editors' opinions and thoughts on the nominations.
One of the sponsors at the event was Shiseido, a beauty brand that was promoting for its new Rouge Rouge lipstick line! I had the pleasure of trying out the Ruby Copper color to match my simple white maxi. Be sure to check out their new collection for the latest shades of red below. :-)

I also wanted to give a shoutout to DIFF. DIFF is a charitable non-profit organization that provides free eyeglasses to African communities with no vision access or care. I wore these reflective tortoise DIME sunnies to the event and I absolutely loved what DIFF stands for. Being someone who wore glasses since eight years old, I would be a huge supporter for any eyewear brand that contributed their mission to giving back.

Dezzal I

Sunday, September 18, 2016

Good morning to this beautiful Sunday! Blogging from my new apartment in Atwater Village, I present you this stunning layered butterfly embroidered mini dress by Dezzal.

The designer is ZENPP by Zhao.  Her main focus of the brand is to create "traditionally crafted pieces with contemporary flair.... Zhao insists that in today's increasingly westernized society, the essence of traditional aesthetic should be respected by modern elegance."

This layered dress immediately caught my eye as I started browsing through her page. Not only Dezzal hosts ZENPP but also different brands that have their own style. I'm very impressed with how the layered dress turned out. It looks exactly like the product image and sizing is exact (I am wearing a size small in the photos!).

I love how the dress has multiple layers of ruffles and added lining underneath. The mock neckline and shoulder detail are made in stretchy mesh material. Not to mention, the embroidery of butterflies and golden flowers are absolutely gorgeous. It almost reminds me of the costumes in this epic Chinese movie, Curse of the Golden Flower!

However, I have to say that the lace remainder of the dress does not glide smoothly on the skin and is somewhat uncomfortable. Judging by the beautiful design and the inexpensive pricing for the dress, I can see how the material may suffer. Both the lace fabric on the sleeves and ruffles are quite scratchy. Otherwise, this really is the perfect mini dress! :-)

Please be sure to check out Dezzal and the designer ZENPP!

Also, here are some of the best sellers that I highly recommend taking a look at :-) Dezzel Best Sellers!
