It’s 2am and I have been starring at the screen for the last 20 minutes, writing nonsense, deleting and rewriting the same nonsense. I realized I have talked about this subject many times before: color blocking, maxi skirts, oh look at how this skirt is flowing in the air and the sun is seeping through creating that warm hint of glow from that ray of golden hour delight. Do you ever get writer’s block? Anyhow, the crimson red color of this skirt is pretty darn amazing.

In other boring news, we’ve finally narrowed down the models for the KSW fashion show (thanks to the lovely ladies of Kearny Street Workshop) and I learned/realized a few things about myself over the weekend: 1) I’m such a low talker, 2) my lack of patience is a mean son of a gun and 3) I drive like a senior citizen. Thank you NR for pointing these out. I’ll work on it but I can’t guarantee the driving will improve.

Happy Monday loves. I hope you had a wonderful and productive weekend! xo

Self imprisonment for 3 days can make you do a lot of impulsive things…Over indulged on candy, lots of it, and go on a sugar high, buy loads of food from Costco because we like to eat in large quantities, and wear my top backwards. I guess the latter is my favorite because it’s obvious the details were meant to be in the front.

I have been busy trying to finalize all the new pieces for KTRcollection for the Kearny Street Workshop (KSW) fashion show on September 8th that I have kind of neglected my home. The house has been a total disaster and the fridge looked like it belong to a single college man. My rule is no matter how obsessed I am with a project, taking care of home should always be a first priority. So it was about that time for a quick break to recharge, restock and refresh, plus a good 8 hour of sleep was so needed! I can’t wait to share what I made with you soon! :)

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and your Monday is off to a great one! xo

The Sweetest Thing

I’m a huge fan of pretty little headpieces and this floral halo wreath is the perfect combination of whimsical and romance that adds a touch of sweetness to any outfit. Plus, I’m dying to be a flower girl at my friend’s wedding, if her daughter decide to bail, I’m volunteering to take her place (hint, hint) :)

I was in the mood to release my inner boho spirit so my floral halo headpiece was the perfect accessory to accompanied this sweet chiffon wide leg pleated pants that looked like it could be a maxi skirt. I was fooled by it too until I saw my bestie wore it in green. I think these pants are so lovely and perfect fit for lounging around in warm weather. Although it’s super long but the alterations was quite simple and the sheer material will require you to wear shorts underneath. It also comes in black, green and burgundy and I may get the black ones too.

What do you think of these pants?

I Dream In Colors

When I saw this skirt at H&M, I tried to resist but the vibrancy of the fuchsia color and interesting fanned-out pleats made of a random sporty material kept calling me back. Yup, I have no self control. I love the way the pleats hold its shape and the length is so ladylike. Plus it’s the perfect mate to my teal blouse (last worn here)…So here it is, hung in my room next to the many colors that are dominating my closet these days.

Opposites may not always attract, but when it comes to color-blocking, colors on the opposite side of the spectrum can create a beautiful unity. Mixing colors is nothing new but it’s one of my favorite trend that I’ll never get tired off and will rock until I am gray and wrinkled.

What about you, are you tired of this trend yet?
