I will be collaborating with a designer in New York, Aiden Vo,  to reconstruct a vintage piece to make it current and fresh. I will post the final lookbook on the blog which Loc will be shooting once it’s completed. You will see how we use our lenovo Touch PCs during our creative process via my instagram, twitter, Facebook, Aiden’s instagram, and Loc’s instagram.

August 29th, 2013 11 comments

I love that crop top is so strong right now. I saw a ton of monochrome outfits on the runways this season with crop tops and trousers and I’m so excited for it.  I have so many crop tops but my recent purchase is this faux leather crop top from Zara. And I love it so much.. wore this top three times this week already :-)

Wearing: Crop top from Zara, vintage skirt from YSL, Prada pumps, Margiela wide belt ( similar ), and vintage pearl earrings

Trying out high braided ponytail for the first time and I’m loving it ;-)
