Test There are many summer obsessions this year and palm prints are definitely one of them. I love this dress cut because it is very classic but with a summer twist. The best characteristic this dress gives is classy but cool. The palm print dress takes a classic cut dress into an outfit that says, “I’m feminine and know how to have fun”. Petticoats are not required for this dress since the thick material adds enough natural shape.

I wore this on a brunch date with my sister in Newport Beach and it was perfect with the sunny weather and Sangria Sunday (which is my favorite drink!). I had the amazing feeling of summer perfection with my palm tree prints, warm breeze, and refreshing drinks made with real fruit.

Although I had a perfect Sunday, this week will be one of my busiest weeks ever. My friend from Japan, Yoshi, is visiting me this week on short notice. I met her during college in the international extension center and we both got along right away. She taught me how to cook her favorite Japanese dishes and she was always there for me when I was down during those days. For that reason, I spent so much time prepping her guest room and guest bathroom (because I love her so much and want everything perfect for her).

I also have work, company meeting/dinner, and much prepping to do for the Anime Expo this week! I am ecstatic to announce that I will be co-hosting for LA18 at the Anime Expo. Aside from the stress of short prep time I have this week, I am super ecstatic about it for everything.

Yoshi works for Disney so hopefully I will have the time to join her in visiting the happiest place on earth, Disney Land and California Adventure. So in order for me to go, I need to prepare everything in advance and hopefully be able to go to Disney Land and eat Mickey Mouse shaped ice cream.

 

Anyone going to the Anime Expo? Let me know down below in the comment box!  Oh, by the way… I’m cosplaying… Can you guess what??? :p

Midnight Blue Jumpsuit for any Season

I have been really into one-piece outfits lately, especially jumpsuits and rompers. This simple midnight blue jumpsuit I am wearing is a great effortless look. I love how there are pockets on the side and a drawstring so it can show a summer-ready figure. This jumpsuit is also great to have since it can transition to autumn very easily. In other words, it is season-less.

Wearing simple clothing is fun because you can add something heavy or complicated like the linked chain necklace shown in my photos. This necklace is absolutely one of my favorite necklaces (you can probably catch me wearing them in a few other photos/videos such as my Twitter: @ogYukiBomb and Instagram: @YukiBomb).

I wore this outfit on my recent trip to Las Vegas with my family and I surprisingly had a lot of compliments from random women. It’s a safe and sophisticated look. I like putting my hands in my pocket while I’m walking in this piece because it makes me feel resilient yet feminine. I think this look is best with my hair up so that it draws more attention on the necklace and neck. Simplicity is sometimes best, is it not? :]

Passion, Projects, Pandora…

I’m excited to say that I have many projects lining up for me. Unfortunately I cannot say exactly what yet, but what I can tell you is that I will be collaborating with KC Nekro. KC and I recently had a conversation about music and I introduced him to one of my favorite artists that I recently heard on Pandora. My current repeat list is Alina Baraz and Galimatias’ Ep, “Urban Flora”. I feel like this amazing EP embodies a great part of my soul and personality. The music, rhythm, and lyrics are just incredibly amazing. One day later, KC texted me and said, “I CAN’T STOP LISTENING TO ALINA BARAZ!!!” (lol) So, we were then inspired and will be working together to deliver a part of our passion in the form of music.

Let me know below what you guys think about this post. :] I’m curious to know…

How to Look Sexy NOT Slutty

This sheer lace jumpsuit screams out sexy, but how sexy can you be without being raunchy? I have always preferred clothing that has sexiness with taste and not looking unrefined. Yes, this outfit is definitely bold, but it is all about how you rock it.

California Girl

The sheerness of this look makes it no problem to wear during the hot summer nights in California. The black fedora and chained statement necklace adds a little spunk to the look. Under the sheer lace, I am wearing high waist spandex and a basic black bra. In my opinion, the black high waist shorts are a must; I tried wearing lower waist shorts and I thought there was too much skin exposed.

As for shoes, I thought heels would add a final touch of something provocative. Booties would be a great substitute for the look because it would balance by adding a touch of virility.

Evolution of Fashion │ Make a Statement

I have to admit, although I had many compliments on this look, it took a bit of time to get used to wearing this in public. This jumpsuit reminds me of seductive lingerie and that can make a girl blush. I grew up quite reserved so I feel that I have evolved out of my shell more by wearing this.

I felt shy at first, but then courageous and sexy. The material is noticeably thin, so at first I was concerned about ripping it. Then I realized, maybe a lacerated look would be fun… Or the process of doing so would be more fun… (jk).

Signs Your Photographer is a GREAT Fit

This shoot obviously took place in public. As I was shooting, there were a few onlookers that made me feel very uncomfortable (lol). I usually find locations that have very little traffic as possible, but since Sebastian (the photographer, his website is cbfour.co) and I were on a time crunch, we randomly chose this little spot in North Hollywood.

Also, the weather was a bit cloudy and breezy, so we had to chase tiny spots of sunlight and wait for some wind to hit. Oh, the troubles of limited time and photo shoots… But Sebastian and I learned to work with what was available and thus, were very satisfied with the result of the photos. Sebastian is one of my favorite photographers since we seem to connect through artistic values.

I grew up learning a bit about zodiacs so whenever I work with people for some time, I have an odd habit of asking for their zodiac. So on this day, I asked Sebastian about his zodiac and found out that our zodiacs match fairly well. I believe that it is very important to have a good and true connection with people, especially with the ones you work with to create something.

No wonder I love his work. He’s talented and we get along. :]

Tease the Referee

I immediately fell in love with this see-through white polyester blouse when I laid eyes on it. This blouse is sexy because it allows you to reveal your curves but the design and cut makes it cute. This oversized look has the best of both worlds since it is see-through. I love that only the bust area is covered because when you look, it is a tease which adds sexiness without overdoing it.

Play Ball!

Although it is a blouse, it has a sporty feel to it since the design reminds me of a referee coach. The high-waist black spandex gives a good balance from the oversized shirt by accentuating the hips. I personally prefer to cover up my belly button because in a way, it is another type of tease. High-waist shorts or pants also distract the eyes from the belly area to the upper torso and it accentuates my hips. I love this pair of spandex because the cotton material makes it comfortable and it reminds me of my glory years of playing volleyball (lol).

Below the Belt

This outfit can be dressed up by heels or down with sneakers. I’ve worn both with this outfit. One thing about this blouse is that it only covers the bust area which means the wearer needs to be careful not to raise their arms too high. If arms are raised too high while wearing this blouse, it can reveal you covered area. So when wearing blouses like these, make sure you wear a bandeau under.

Chasing my shadow…

Let’s Get Ready to RUMBLE!

The photo above is my favorite photo from this shoot. Sebastian (Studio Owner and Photographer, CBfour) and I were talking about future photoshoot projects and how we can be experimental.

Tease the Referee

As we were shooting this, my shadows were very evident among the large grey wall. I suddenly had the idea of playing around with my shadows and viola, this photo happened. It was not easy achieving this photo, since the shadow is only created by the quick second the flash of the lamps go off. So in a way, I was chasing my shadow. What a tease…

Why Every Girl Needs a Maxi Dress

I think that every girl should have a maxi dress in their closet. I like to wear them because they are comfortable, ethereal, flattering, and transitional between seasons. Since my maxi dress worn in the photo does not have a v-neck (which shows a little skin and tricks the eyes into seeing a taller figure), I added a simple long necklace to help guide the eyes in a vertical manner and thus, is a little trick to a taller figure.

Right Way to Wear a Maxi Dress

for any Season

Maxi dresses can be transitional through seasons simply depending on how you wear it. For the summer, you can wear it as is with a cute pair of open-toe heels/wedges, sandals, or even sneakers (dress it up or down). As for the transition into fall, I would pair my black maxi dress with booties and a long cardigan or sweater.

Right Way to Wear a Maxi Dress

for Short Girls

If you’re petite, maxi dresses can be a bit tricky because there’s a possibility of looking like tent. When I shop for one a maxi dress, I make sure the upper body is form fitting or at least accentuates the waist area. Also, it’s a bonus if the dress shows the figure on the thigh area. In this way, you won’t look stubby or heavier than your actual figure. If the maxi dress does not accentuate the waist, I would highly suggest a belt to show some curves.

One last aspect of maxi dresses I love is the ethereal feeling it gives, especially when the wind blows. I secretly feel prettier whenever the wind catches my long dress…
