FEATURING: Jessica Jeon

This will be the first time doing a post on a "faceless model," but she insisted so here we go.
She's a friend of mine by the name of Jessica Jeon.
She is quite petite, but I always liked how she dressed herself.
Maybe she gets it from her mom, because her mom is also quite a fashionista.


Shirt - Zara

She paired up a loose-fit white tee that has just a block of print in the middle with a more popping (in color and design) type of a skirt. The skirt consists of colors like blue, red, white, and black(at least I think there's black in there...haha). Because the shirt is white and almost plain, it looks good with a skirt that is kind of visually crazy.


Skirt - Forever 21


bag - Michael Kors

I absolutely love her purse. I checked it out with my mother at the Michael Kors store at The Grove LA a while back, and we both really liked it but it was too out of our budget too just randomly buy it. I also love that chestnut sort of a brown color on almost about anything.


Shoes - Steve Madden

I love how the colors of the bag and the shoes match, although I don't know if it was intentional. It's such a nice neutral color to go with in almost any situation.

FEATURING: Sungho Hong & Sophie Chung


I feel honored to feature two of my very beloved dongsengs (a Korean term for younger siblings even if they are not blood related). They have a very clean fashion that is versatile for many occasions.


First off, let me introduce Sungho Hong, also known as "Thomas."
He's now a freshman at UCLA, and works at Hollister Co.
He is also my first male model for my blog. :)


Shirt - Zara Man Slim Fit Shirt


Pants - Hollister Skinny Rinse Jeans


Watch - Fossil Leather Watch
Shoes - Clarks Originals

I love his neat and clean fashion. He can wear this outfit to pretty much anywhere and look good.



Next up is this lovely lady, by the name of Sophie Chung.
She is now a sophomore at Amherst in Massachusetts.
She has long legs that look good in long jeans or shorts, which is something I'm jealous of. 



Shirt - H&M
Pants - Hollister jeans


Shoes - from Korea
Bracelets - cross metal one from Japan, braided one from Korea

SPECIAL ADDITION FOR THIS POST:

"The Couple Look"


[They are not a real life couple. They were matching so well that we went for a "couple look."]




They are such cuties. Thank you guys for your cooperation!

F is for Friends


How coincidental is it that we walk into church wearing clothes of such similar vibes?
And NO, we did not plan on this at all. I was already planning on blogging my outfit from this day, but I had to photograph her too because it was just unbelievable.



Now that Jane has been featured in my blog several times, she's gotten better and more natural at modeling.


Her dress is from Zara. It's a white-ish draw-string dress that has a burgundy embroidery on the front part of the dress.
She paired it with a thin burgundy belt but it wasn't visible because the dress covered it.


She paired her dress up with a pair of simple, black flats that are also from Zara.


***



My mother bought this dress for me from a random Korean clothing store.
It's an off-white, draw-string dress that have black embroidery on the top part of the dress along with black buttons and collars.




I love how the tips of the collars are unique in that they have matching embroidery as the dress itself.
I also love how the chest embroidery has holes in them that show some skin.
To top all of this off, the collars and the sleeve cut-off parts have a black design around the edges.



I paired the dress with just simple, black heels that I purchased from a shoe store in Koreatown Galleria that mostly sell shoes from Korea.

L O N D O N

L O N D O N



I picked up this shirt from Zara a while back, when I went to The Grove LA with my mother.
It's just a simple white tee, with black lettering prints that make it look like tall buildings.
(I have never been to London so I do not know if they have a lot of tall buildings... haha)

At one glance, it seems like an okay shirt.
The more you look at it and the more you wear it, you fall in love with it more and more.




The fit of the shirt is just a simple, loose fit. The sleeves and the bottom of the shirt looks as if they were just cut off with scissors and not stitched. The fabric is also soft and awesome to wear in the summer.




I paired the shirt with a dark wash blue jeans (super skinny) from Hollister Co., and a nude colored flats that I ordered from IDEELI.



I accessorized my simple outfit by carrying a neutral colored clutch from Fendi.
Clutches are a popular fashion trend these days, and because my overall outfit was simple, it looked good carrying a clutch with prints all over it.
(Moment of truth: the Fendi clutch is my mom's. HAHA.)


I also put on my usual accessories like my watch and my rings along with two others.

Watch - Michael Kors
Rings - ribbon (Madewell), flower (Pandora), crisscross (random online site)

On my right wrist, I wore two bracelets.
The cross one was a gift from long time ago from I don't remember who (I'm so sorry) and the bright blue bracelet was a gift from an oppa(older brother) by the name of Matthew Jeon, after his return from the Korean military. It says "TANZANIA B" and it's some sort of donation bracelet. I just thought the bright blue would go well with my outfit as the one part of my entire outfit that pops.
