The Cold is Coming: Jane Kim

Here is the favorite model of Grace Yourself, modeling a nice fall outfit.
It's that awkward time when it's not really cold but it's not really hot.

Shirt - Forever 21
Shorts - Forever 21
Belt - H&M
Socks - from her aunt
Shoes - boots from Steve Madden

The color and the shape of her shorts for some reason reminds me of pumpkins, which is actually quite fitting to the fall season, with Halloween around the corner and then Thanksgiving Day.
It would've been easily thought that the best option would've been to wear a plain top but Jane chose to wear a striped shirt, which actually suited very well. I also thought she was very sensible in the way that she wore a brownish-orange belt, which is in a similar color family as that of her shorts.

Color scheme of an outfit is important. You can easily look tacky if you don't match up colors well.
To match her black stripes on her upper body, she wore long black socks. The rest of her outfit just fell together well in one piece under the neutral tone.

I actually really liked her boots --- I love boots in general. It's hard to find myself boots that fit me well and actually look good or decent on me and it makes me jealous a little but at the same time happy to see someone wearing their boots in a fashionable way.
The brown color of her boots was a good match to the continuous neutral tone of her outfit.
Not only was it a good match to her outfit... it's the kind of boots in both style and color that would look good in almost any type of outfit (i.e., leggings with an oversized crewneck/sweater or even just skinny jeans and a shirt).

I hope this was an inspiring outfit for the Fall season!

Sunday's Best in Black

Dear readers, meet two of my family group (small group) girls from LASRCC Arise EM.
We happened to all be dressed in black, so I decided to feature them on here.
Charis Bae (on the left) and Grace Kim (in the middle) are both freshmen at USC.

It was just the day to be wearing dark clothes, for all of us were pretty much dressed in all black. Well, almost.

It is difficult to tell in the pictures but Charis was actually wearing navy blue pants that were dark enough that it would be easily mistaken as black pants. 

I wasn't able to get information for what they are wearing, but I am wearing a black long sleeve top from Zara, black pants from H&M, along with a pop of style and color on my feet with a pair of cheetah print heels. I chose to carry just an all black Kate Spade purse to simply keep everything black and simple.

Grace (in the middle) wore a pair of black pants/jeans, along with a black sleeveless button up, a pair of simple nude flats and a brown purse.
Charis (on the left) wore navy skinny pants, along with a black short sleeve top with a pair of simple black flats.

Black is such a nice color to wear any time of the year, and it also is a nice color when you want to dress up a little. Details are important when wearing an all black outfit. It isn't shown in the photos but the back detail of my shirt is beautiful and unique -- it is kind of a sheer material in the back that crosses over with a ribbon on the bottom of the shirt to tie. These things, or putting in an accessory of some sort with a color that would pop due to the blackness of the outfit would also create a nice detail and a character to the outfit.

Show off your style through the universal color of black.

Bold Blue & Special Announcement

Before I present you with this blog post, I have a special announcement to make to everyone.

After much thought, I have decided to bring an end to my "Timeless Beauty" page and move everything over to "Grace Yourself" page. It kind of sucks because I have put in quite an effort to my first ever blog but I came to a conclusion that it would be nice and interesting to open this floor up for things other than just fashion. I will continuously post on behalf of the fashion of myself and my fellow friends, but I will also be posting about other things like food (reviews, etc.), beauty (as my Timeless Beauty was a beauty blog), and other life style related topics that come to mind that I would like to openly share with you guys. I would like to give a huge shout out of thank you to all who participate in being featured and reading and hopefully enjoying my blog posts. I do wish to continue bringing joy to the eyes of those who follow and read my blog posts, and feel free to let me know if there are specific requests of topics or even opinions that you would like to hear about from me.

To go on to the main part of this blog post, I am featuring my friend Jane Kim (again, I know haha) and her bold outfit from a few Sundays ago.

Skorts (skirt/shorts) have been quite in this past summer, and it seems to be a continuous trend into the fall season.
I've been noticing that so many people have been wearing Zara skorts, and how did I know -- Jane got her bold blue skorts from Zara as well. 

I would have to say that she did a great job of having an up-do for this outfit, because I loved how it was a clean look for such a bold color scheme of her outfit.
Her white button-up (H&M) is versatile in style and color that looks good with almost anything.
White is also a great addition to a bold color such as the blue of her skort and the blue of her awesome statement necklace (J.Crew). 
She could've tucked in her top all around, but she chose to tuck in just the front. That was quite satisfactory in my eyes as well, as it helps cover her butt but still look super fashionable.

Because the skort has an asymmetrical front view, it was kind of difficult to photograph it without making it look weird. And you may feel that the pictures don't look that great, but these pictures do not do the justice of her outfit. She stood out because of the boldness of her skort and I would have to say that this is by far my utmost favorite outfit modeled by my dearest Jane. She has been featured in many other posts, so feel free to check them out.

(Daniel thought he didn't get caught on camera... but bro, you got caught.)

On a last note...
Be Bold & Be Confident.
