Nini’s Style One Year Spotlight

October 19th, 2009

WOW!!! Time sure fly when you are having fun!  I cannot believe that it had been one year since I started Nini’s Style with Loc’s suggestion to do so on October 19, 2008.  I would like THANK YOU for all of your support with your sweet comments.   The blog was started to provide fashion tips to others as that is what I love to do.    I could have not imagine the great opportunity to meet so many fabulous blogger friends that I have met over the year because of blogging.  I feel that I know each and everyone of you as my closet friend because you and I could understand the universal language, fashion that is :-) .   Not only that, you all inspired me in different ways.  You all have truly opened my eyes in the world of fashion and allowed me to have a different perspective of styles/designs.  Keep up the good work ladies!!! YOU ALL ROCK!!!  It had been a blast for Loc and I for the last year running this blog and we are always looking for ways to make it better.  So keep your comments/suggestions/questions coming!   The collage below reminded me of how much fun time Loc and I had shooting around in the past year.  I hope that you enjoy the photos and the new banner!  I wish you and your family a wonderful week ahead.

xoxo Nini Nguyen

    Happy anniversary Nini, one year seems like such a long time. I really enjoyed looking back at the collage of the old pictures, and how Loc’s photography has progressed. The last two images of the sidewalk in particular are exquisite, and I love how the white stripe down the middle of your outfit really elongates your figure.

    Hi Nini! I started following your blog recently and what a wonderful blog that is. Definitely sticking with you for the next years to come. Happy blogaversary!!

    PS: Anniversary photoshoot could easily have been on a magazine. Beautiful!

  13. October 19th, 2009 at 06:19 | #13

    Happy 1st blogaversary, Nini! You know how they have those list of “gifts” for wedding anniversaries, we should have one for bloggers too! And inspired with this post, maybe the 1st is Alaia!! Everyone celebrating their 1st blogaversary should buy themselves an Alaia!!

    Love this dress on you! I went to the Alaia stock shop in Paris last week and sadly, I couldn’t afford any of the dresses, even from past season! But I’ll save up for it… so I could buy one for my 1st blogaversary too!

    Thank you for sharing your blog with us! We all know how maintaining a blog is almost like having a 2nd job. It requires a lot and we truly appreciate you and Loc’s effort for coming up with fantastic shoots post after post!

    Agree with you. Loc’s photos improved tremendously over those months and so did you as his model!!

    Congrats again!


  14. October 19th, 2009 at 07:16 | #14

    congrats nini!

    i just want to say how much i adore your blog and how much it inspires me!

    i know, i remember your post from last year and
    it’s just like i’ve been following your blog for a year too, right?!

    yes, i can see that Loc is getting more skillful in photography
    compare to the very previous photos.

    nini- i love the new header and great photos again.
    you look very glamourous and i love the confidence on you.

    btw, did you do this photoshoot the whole day?
    because some of the photos were taken at night time.

    congrats on a successful first year! i discovered your blog just recently. your vision and aesthetic are inspiring to many.
    you make a great model, and Loc is quite a talented photographer. i LOVE the lighting in the “spotlight” shoot, especially that second pic where you’re standing by the water…the light is slightly surreal- flash on in daylight, perhaps…anyway, great effects. and of course, beautiful clothing!

    @mr. freddy’s mom

    Hi Mr. Freddy’s Mom,
    Let me take this one for Nini.

    The shoot was done in 30 minutes during daytime. The shots look like night shot with flash is because I adjust the camera not to let too much light in and adjust the flash more powerful than natural light. Let me know if you need help with camera setting and such.

    Where did you get that dress?!

  59. October 20th, 2009 at 14:08 | #59

    Wow, Nini, CONGRATULATIONS to you & to Loc! It’s funny, to me I can’t believe you’re only one year old: that means when I discovered you, you were only like 7 months?? You have such a large following & it’s clearly that because you’re not only beautiful, and stylish, and I agree, Loc’s photos are just getting so good that I can’t imagine him getting any better, and yet, he continues to. It’s not just all those things: it’s your generous spirit.

    Your posts aren’t just showing off and creating envy, the way some other bloggers who do a similar thing do (there’s no word for it, like there is for ‘street style’ – it’s like ‘self style’). You post ideas that teach us, inspire us, and we then take an adapt to our own style. And more than that: if I can feel like we’re friends, I can’t imagine how many other people must feel the same way.

    We must get you two to London someday soon- I’d love to do a photo shoot!

    Anyway, sorry to go on gushing but I’m really moved that you’ve just had your one year birthday. I didn’t know that it was Loc that suggested it, my husband (‘Mr. Dot’) suggested it to me, too.

    Oh by the way: I think this might be the most beautiful series of shots I’ve seen – even in Vogue. Those last three shots, the texture and composition and setting: it’s sophisticated beyond words.

    much love!! xoxo

    Hi Michelle,

    I bought mine last year at Bergdorf Goodman and I’m not sure if the patent leather is still around anymore. The only way to find out is to call around. You should try the YSL store in Las Vegas.
    Good luck!

  65. October 21st, 2009 at 14:58 | #65

    Hey Nini, Happy Blog Birthday!!! I cannot belive it is only one year old!! Hopefully you will have many more to come! The dress is divine!!! Have a great week xx Pearl
