I’m honor to be a part of the Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam September issue. The Harper’s Bazaar team was very professional and easy to work with. The Aodai’s set were taking at my favorite restaurant, Cuc Gach Quan. My trip to Vietnam was filled with lots of wonderful memories with friends and families. Being part of this magazine for the September’s issue is just like a dream. Thank you everyone for your kind love and support since day 1. Nini’s Style is turning 5 this October. Can you believe it has been that long? Thanks everyone again for your continue love and support! I love you all! xo NINI

I’m a huge fan of pencil skirts in all different types of materials and textures. Sometimes when you find an item that fits your figure well, you end up with a small collection of that item. This python vintage Alaia was a treasure found at Paris flea market. ( similar here and here ) Instead of dressing it up, I like to dress it down with a fun crop tee’s from ASOS and simple pumps ( similar here and here ) Have a fabulous weekend everyone! xoxo NINI

When we were in Bangkok we visited the most gorgeous place, the Grand Palace. This place is full of history with many golden with gemstones statues of buddhas and gods. We also visited Wat Pho where the gold Reclining Buddha is located. Both of these places are Bangkok’s must visit. I am back in Dallas already and will share more photos of where we visited in the future.

Winter white is one of my favorite colors to wear and I have been hunting for the perfect winter white pencil skirt and finally have found one by ALC. I have mentioned on my blog before that pencil skirts are a great essential in your wardrobe, thus, don’t hesitate to invest in one. I love pairing ivory on ivory together as it doesn’t break your body into parts. Have a great day everyone! xo Nini

Hello everyone ~ Here I’m wearing red again. Do you remember a few entries back when I wore a red skirt? That skirt is the second half of the suit this vintage Chanel jacket comes from. I love the idea of a red women’s suit but it is a little too much when they are worn together. They just looked a little too serious together so I wore them separately. I love wearing red because it’s a lucky color in our culture. It symbolizes good fortune and joy. Red is found everywhere during Chinese New Year and other holidays and family gatherings. Besides, red is so big for Fall 2012 and it’s a great color to brighten up any skin tone. If you have never worn red before try it out! You never know…it could be your new discovery!
Hello everyone~ hope you are all enjoying a beautiful day! The last warm days are still around but I can already feel fall in the air. This is what I wore out to Fashion’s Night Out in Dallas. Right now I’m really into keeping my look simple and I’ve been concentrating on shapes and proportion. I bought these J-brand jeans last year and put them away for the summer…it’s time to pull them back out again for fall! Wide legged denim pants are still in for this fall so be sure to stock up on them. Have a lovely day everyone!! xo Nini
Hello everyone, I’ve always loved a great pair of wide legged ivory pants. I don’t wear them often because it requires a pair of statement heels or heels with significant height but I do wear them on special occasions such as a lady’s luncheon. What a sleek way to show up for a meeting or a luncheon in style!
When you show up at any meeting or lady’s luncheon the last things you could possibly need are body hugging dresses, shorts or T’s. All of those are way too casual or too revealing. I stay away from anything that’s too revealing. You want to look sophisticated and elegant.
For summer weather, a pair of classic wide legged pants with a fitted peplum top is suitable and for fall you can always top the outfit off with a structured jacket if needed. It’s a classic look but it also shows off your curves in a subtle way.
This look works well for those who have a small or large chest because the waist line of the pants will show off your curves nicely. As I mentioned, be sure to wear big heels with this look so that whatever you wear on top doesn’t make you look boxy. Heels are key for wide-leg pants so that the pants help to elongate your figure. Have a lovely day everyone! and visit NINI SHOP to find out my latest picks xo Nini
On most of the photos I had the top zipped half way up.
