Preppy Fashion is Back | The Chic List

There’s nothing like a downtown stroll in the crisp California winter air to clear one’s head and test out a new outfit. In my flair boyfriend jeans and Pepperdine University collegiate crewneck with a cream turtleneck peeking out from under, I walked down Downtown Turlock, the charming corner of where I grew up. A signContinue reading “Preppy Fashion is Back | The Chic List”

Keeping it Christmas Casual

This Christmas, I’m keeping it casual! But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to keep it ‘Krischic!’ Last yuletide holiday, I was working. This year, I’m home in NorCal and on vacation! So, I’m trading in my reporter mic for a cup of my brother’s homemade Parisian hot chocolate, the steam warming my face whileContinue reading “Keeping it Christmas Casual”

If Carrie Bradshaw lived in Bakersfield, here is what she would do

As I walked down the ‘Streets of Bakersfield,’ I couldn’t help but wonder…could I actualize an ‘Empire State of Mind’ in the ‘Golden Empire?’ And just like that…I realized I could. Perhaps it was the ensemble I dawned inspired by Carrie Bradshaw herself (a fellow journalist and fashion aficionado). The Carrie-confidence, in every curl. ItContinue reading “If Carrie Bradshaw lived in Bakersfield, here is what she would do”

HOUSE OF GUCCI: THE ‘HAUTE’ TIPS I TOOK FROM THE FILM FASHION

The Golden Age of Gucci: The interlocked “G’s” have been the through line of my entire November, from the Gucci Love Parade fashion show I attended with my friend, Mari at the month’s genesis, to the House of Gucci costume exhibition at FIDM, the Gucci Gardenia pop-up at the Grove and the grand finale: seeingContinue reading “HOUSE OF GUCCI: THE ‘HAUTE’ TIPS I TOOK FROM THE FILM FASHION”

Gucci Goes Hollywood: A Look Inside the “Gucci Love Parade”

Hollywood Boulevard, a sidewalk with stars that line a street of dreams. These are the aspirations, realized, cemented into the ground iconizing actors and musicians who have “made it.” The Walk of Fame also represents the hopes of aspiring creatives and legends in the making. As Creative Director of Gucci, Alessandro Michele points out inContinue reading “Gucci Goes Hollywood: A Look Inside the “Gucci Love Parade””

Last Minute Halloween costume idea for the vintage girl at heart

The fact that it’s Halloween tomorrow is ‘S’wonderful, S’marvelous!’ That is, unless you’re still scratching your head and scouring every costume store in your city that is overcrowded with fellow procrastinators for props and garments that will transform you into another person for the night. In my case, that other person is someone that IContinue reading “Last Minute Halloween costume idea for the vintage girl at heart”

San Diego: Where to Eat and Stay | The Chic List

As wanderers, we have two things we yearn for: a sense of adventure that comes with the winds of change while drive with the windows down toward a destination. The second thing is a sense of home when we’re away from where we dwell. Well, there are two things for me, in particular that canContinue reading “San Diego: Where to Eat and Stay | The Chic List”

Balboa Park | How I Wandered and What I Wore

Two belfries in the plateresque style reflect in a liquid looking glass, as I walk past the outstretched pond in San Diego’s Balboa Park. It’s a deliciously sunny day, and the sky is a vibrant blue. My Georgian dress is just as bright, the color of the goldfish in the lagoon (thanks, Mari for introducingContinue reading “Balboa Park | How I Wandered and What I Wore”

going to the getty | the guide and the go-to garb

The cubic white façade looks like a modern Mount Olympus from the 101 Freeway. But it’s not a haven for the gods—even though much of the European art within the Getty Museum’s wings do depict the Grecian and Roman deities in the brushstrokes of the Renaissance masters. When I lived in LA, The Getty MuseumContinue reading “going to the getty | the guide and the go-to garb”

The SCARF PRINT DRESS | THE CHIC LIST

There’s power in patterns. They are like roadmaps to who we are—whether that’s a recurring behavior or an echoed motif throughout an article of clothing. As a forward thinker with a vintage soul, I embrace change like an old friend. Meanwhile, I tend to make a tradition of what works. I’ve always been a repeatContinue reading “The SCARF PRINT DRESS | THE CHIC LIST”
