What I Wore: Top: Vintage Havana | Shoes: CDG Converse | Bag: Big Buddha

Fashion Tip: Big sunnies and a big bag work with everything. Also, you can rarely go wrong with adding a pair of chucks to any outfit.

Plaids are here to stay. Definitely one of the easiest patterns to work with and pull off. Keep them handy because summer is right around the corner so you can start pairing them with your shorts, skirts and leggings. If you don't want to wear it was a shirt you can wear it as a cardy over a tank or tie it around your waist.

Happy Monday everyone!!

Hello everyone and happy 2016! Lol might be a little late but I was still writing January 2015. Now that I've had enough practice I'm ready to kill it in twenty-sixteen so cheers and yay to my first post of the year... in February. I guess I like to arrive fashionably late.

Something I've incorporated into my everyday is listen to music everywhere I go. When I'm on-the-go, in between meetings, blogging or catching up on emails. I've noticed that it calms me and puts me in a better mood. So not only am I sharing a new outfit with you, I've setup a nice pic of my Next Radio App that let's me listen to the radio without draining my battery. Why is that important? LOL well with all the instagramnming and snapchatting that I do, it's amazing to have something play forever that won't drain my juice!

Fashion Tip: Sometimes it's ok to wear big shirts as dresses.

It's been a long time since I've written anything about my life. Things have been crazy. So much has changed and I can't say that it's been a smooth and easy road but one thing that's never changed is my creative outlet. This blog allows me to be exactly who I want to be when I want to be it. I can be as transparent as I want or as private as I want. Fashion is more than just clothes and shoes. Fashion to me is freedom. There is no right way to dress. Maybe I'm getting a little too deep but when you are confident enough to dress the way you want, you realize that you can apply that confidence to every other aspect of your life as well. Your style evolves as you go through different phases in your life. Everyone makes resolutions to be better. I won't divulge the battles and obstacles I went through recently but I am in full support of everyone that is working to be stronger, better and happier. You always hear that life is too short... uh well it is. So let go of anything that doesn't make you better or happier.

This year, even though I might post less throughout the week, I'm planning on writing more. Holding everything in doesn't do any good for me so you get to read through the scatteredness inside my head. No promises that it'll make any sense to you but I hope you get a kick out of it.

So until the next time I have time to post...

Literally my favorite color combination right now for Fall: burgundy and tan.

What I Wore: Jacket: Charlotte Russe | Sunnies: Zero UV | Pants: Zara | Booties: Charlotte Russe

Fashion Tip: Tis the season to layer! Turtleneck + jacket. Top + jacket + scarf. Whatever combination works for you, just add it on.

All my favorite things are in this outfit. Currently loving the burgundy and tan colors for the Fall and it's also the best time to wear booties. Zara leather pants with zippers are on repeat and I can't get enough of turtlenecks right now. I guess it works out to wear everything you like for one outfit. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are ready for Christmas! Time is flying by and before you know it, we'll be ringing in 2016!!

Happy Monday everyone! Make it count!

SEASON OF CHANGE

Tuesday, December 1, 2015


season of change,raise awareness,lipsy london,charity event,fashion blogger,lovefashionlivelife,joann doan,style blogger,stylist,what i wore,my style,fashion diaries,outfit,opm,opm restaurant

During the holidays, everyone is more inclined to do more charitable things, be kind and take action. That's an amazing effort but what's even more amazing are organizations like Season of Change to help remind us to initiate change year round. I was more than honored to be a part of the Season of Change's plight to end human trafficking and raise awareness on the issue.

It's not "an overseas problem", it's an Orange County situation. Here are some shocking stats:

lucky magazine contributor,fashion blogger,lovefashionlivelife,joann doan,style blogger,stylist,what i wore,my style,fashion diaries,outfit,lucite clutch,leather hat,wardrobe

"Since 2004, the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force (OCHTTF) has rescued more than 450 victims of human trafficking that include both adults and minors."

Honestly, I had no idea. It's a terrifying thought that this is happening in our backyards. Education is key -- "cast a stone, create a ripple." If you want to make a change, you first need to be a change.

lucky magazine contributor,fashion blogger,lovefashionlivelife,joann doan,style blogger,stylist,what i wore,my style,fashion diaries,outfit,lucite clutch,leather hat,wardrobe

Thank you to OCHTTF, Season of Change and OPM for having me at such an incredible event with so many amazing and influential people. I learned a lot and it opened my eyes to situations and circumstances I wasn't aware about.

With Season of Change creator Yvon Nguyen. The event helped raise funds and spread awareness for human trafficking within Orange County's Asian American communities.

Many people asked where my dress was from and yes because this is a fashion blog, I will be talking about FASHION and giving you a tip on what to wear to a cocktail event.

lucky magazine contributor,fashion blogger,lovefashionlivelife,joann doan,style blogger,stylist,what i wore,my style,fashion diaries,outfit,lucite clutch,leather hat,wardrobe

What I Wore: Dress: Lipsy London | Heels: Zara | Clutch: Shop Prima Donna

Fashion Tip: I really didn't know what cocktail attire meant but I usually don't wear floor length gowns unless it's a wedding. So my next best guess was anything just passed the knees. It's classy and as you can see with a little bit of lace and some bare shoulders, the right amount of sexy.

My last note to you isn't just for you. It's something I'm telling myself everyday. Doing what's right shouldn't just be increased during the holidays. It's something we should try to do for ourselves and others everyday. It starts with us. "Be the change you want to see in the world."

Happy 1st of December. Make it one to remember!

PENCIL SKIRTS AND TURTLENECKS

Thursday, November 19, 2015

Everyone needs a go-to outfit. I've figured out my go-to outfit for the office. If all else fails go with a pencil skirt and turtleneck. Easy to wear, comfortable and still very polished.

Fashion Tip: Once you know what works for you at the office, stick with it. It'll save you so much time getting ready in the morning.

What I Wore: Top: H&M | Skirt & Heels: Zara | Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim | Sunnies: Zero UV

When the office becomes 99% of your life, you have to start accumulating pieces that lean towards more professional and less trendy. But when you find clothes that are professional AND trendy, well then consider yourself lucky. Turtlenecks pair so well with blazers, slacks and skirts. Definitely consider adding these as layering pieces for the office.

Work hard, play hard.

NEUTRALS AT THE OFFICE

HI EVERYONE! I'm back! Sorry for the lack of posts but it's been super hectic lately. I feel like I've been saying the same thing over and over again but seriously. Transitioning into the financial adviser role while still trying to balance out the blogging life becomes a 24/7 job. Life is good and I can't be happier with my new path but I'm still learning as I go how to maintain everything.

Anyways. Today's blog post is bringing neutrals into the office. Enjoy!

What I Wore: Coat: Forever 21 | Sunnies: Zero UV | Pants: H&M | Heels: Cathy Jean

Fashion Tip: White x tan look really good together.

It's finally fall weather in OC so it's been fun to layer again. I get to break out the coats, scarves, furs and boots. It's a little harder to layer my office clothes but this camel coat from Forever 21 literally goes with everything and still looks professional. Lately all my purchases have to be able to transition from office wear to street wear so I get the most use out of it.

“Smile at strangers, slow down, say thank you, laugh and give compliments today.”

Life is too short to be anything but H A P P Y.
