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”

The Dressing Guide to Parties in LA: Keeping Up with Krischic

Entertainment news like all news never sleeps, so neither do I. It is true what they say: there is always something happening in LA. Every. Single. Night. Especially when your profession is entertainment, these events and parties become a part of your weekly schedule. I’m an adventurous spirit, so I find playing Tetris with myContinue reading “The Dressing Guide to Parties in LA: Keeping Up with Krischic”

CW’s Nancy Drew is Ditching the Headbands, Costume Designer Says

Emma Roberts fans may characterize Nancy Drew by her collection of preppy headbands, but no longer—CW’s Nancy Drew is revamping the iconic detective’s storyline and style. The creators are giving the show some supernatural elements (a ghost!) and leaving headbands out of the series premiere (without lack of trying them on in costume fittings!). “IContinue reading “CW’s Nancy Drew is Ditching the Headbands, Costume Designer Says”

Redefining the “Beach Body”

My mind and my heart belong to the past, and ironically, my body shape reflects that. I have a 1950s body that may not fit the context of today, but I don’t see it as outdated.   I love my curves, and the unique way they take shape to clothing. Yes, my shape may notContinue reading “Redefining the “Beach Body””

Los Angeles Lookbook

Going abroad to London last year taught me about the importance of being a tourist in my own city. I am perfectly fine with getting all dolled up and making a DSLR camera the extension of my arm when going out and about in LA. No regrets. No shame. This city deserves to be photographed,Continue reading “Los Angeles Lookbook”

Coffee With a Side of Cognition

Studying for finals while studying abroad in London is like the carriage in Cinderella turning back into a pumpkin. One minute, you’re staring at a photography exhibit for Julia Margaret Cameron at the Victorian and Albert Museum, and the next your computer screen, creating an outline for your British History essays. The reality is, studyingContinue reading “Coffee With a Side of Cognition”

Vienna

Next stop on the Travel Weekend trip? Vienna, Austria! When I thought my five-day travel weekend could not get any more magical, my friends and I boarded the train departing from Prague to Vienna. The train allowed for three hours of complete serenity and solitude, an opportunity to reflect on the beauty of the writtenContinue reading “Vienna”

Ireland-Wear

Is there a place in the world where you’ve been for the first time, and it immediately felt like home? If you’ve ever had that sensation, you understand my feelings towards Ireland. It is a land where you meet unfamiliar, yet friendly accents. The land is green, the hospitality is so warm that you’ll thawContinue reading “Ireland-Wear”

Lane Lookbook

One of the things I love most about London? Every neighborhood has its own personality. The East End of London is a completely different character than South Kensington (check out an article about South Kent here). Brick Lane specifically is where a friend and I adventured today. If I could sum up the area inContinue reading “Lane Lookbook”

Struttin’ in Stratford

Stratford Upon Avon is a charming little town that is known for its Shakespeare heritage. As it is the place where he was born, wrote some of his plays, got married, and is buried, the town is high on the list for any literary lover.     However, it is more than a Shakespeare sight. ItContinue reading “Struttin’ in Stratford”
