All White Outfit on 25th Birthday

By on June 24, 2017

“Life is about constantly learning and embracing new things, so I should strive to keep a part of my mind pure, as if it is a white piece of paper, ready to take notes and draw pictures on.”

This is my 25th birthday celebration. I feel that 25 is an age that is still young, but not that young anymore. For some Asian cultures, it is considered getting old! The highly conservative ones believe that it is an appropriate age to get married and have children. I want to express that I am still young, yet acknowledge that I’m also aging and maturing. So, I invited all my friends to come dressed in white, to reflect on our eternal innocence regardless of our age. I want to be reminded that life is about constantly learning and embracing new things, so I should strive to keep a part of my mind pure, as if it is a white piece of paper, ready to take notes and draw pictures on. I treasure my life experiences, but I believe that imposing what I already know, walking around the world with my mind like a piece of paper full of notes is simply unfair for the new things that I will encounter.

Another urban chic look from the Hong Kong trip.

Karin Karas takes us to the renowned Shelley Street in Central, Hong Kong. I opt for solid color items with audacious colors like blue and orange. I could not wait to wear my favorite blue summer dress, so here it is, paired with the creamy Tencel Wrap long-sleeve tunic from Hana Tajima 2017 Spring/Summer collection for Uniqlo. There are so many ways to wear this tunic…

Fishnet and Green Lipstick

By on April 25, 2017

“There are plenty of fish in the sea, and a fishnet is what you need.”

I went to the mall on Saturday and ran into an old friend – makeup-junkie Emma at the M.A.C store. I was wearing this green top that day, so the green lipstick on the display happened to catch my eye. I have always been so entertained by M.A.C lipstick color names, so I picked up the stick to uncover the label, and my amusement level skyrocketed when I discovered that its name is Deep With Envy. Oh, the intensely poisonous sound of that really seduced me. “Let’s try it on you,” said Emma… and here we are today, with the fishnet too!

Go-Getters and Glamorous People Wear Green

By on March 22, 2017

“Wearing this outfit makes me feel undeniably powerful and glamorous.”

It is the beginning of Spring and St. Patrick’s Day had just passed. This season especially reminds me of new beginning, growth, and simply going forward. I feel that the color green best represents the mood!

So many thoughts come to my mind when I think of the color green. Abundance, hot climate, the jungle, the Amazon, the dollar bills, just to name a few…

Most strikingly, green is the only color of the traffic lights that we all love, because it means “GO!”. Besides, we often see green checkmarks when something is validated, confirmed—something that signals our mind to interpret messages like “successful transactions”, or “we are correct!” Just the phrases that go-getters adore.

To sum up, green radiates approval, growth, and success. I am channeling these vibes through my look today.
