StyleCon 2016 | Let’s Meet Up!

StyleCon 2016

Hey everyone! Happy Friday! I can’t believe it’s already November which is the time for StyleCon! It seriously feels like yesterday was mid-October… So much as happened since the last time I wrote a blog post. Let’s have a quick overview of what I’ve done so far:

As some of you know, I modeled for Los Angeles Fashion Week! The fashion line I walked for is called Irish Latina by Rebecca Rivera. Rebecca is an extraordinary designer that studied fashion in both California and New York. I had such an awesome time that day, being able to walk on a huge lit-up runway where hundreds of cameras are pointed at you. I was nervous at first, but the moment I stepped foot onto the runway, that nervousness disappeared and I simply had fun. What was great during the show was that it was a more casual fashion show where the models can freely walk the runway. I prefer that kind of fashion show because I was able to make eye contact with the audience. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to look at them directly and give them an impression, see their expression, and create an undeviating connection. I will never forget this day!

Back to School

Back to School – New Classes, New Friends, New Clothes, NEW YOU

Going back to school is always extremely exciting, since it’s like a restart button on a video game of school life. Back to school in high school is fun because there’s new and familiar faces. In that case, it is fun to see people changing their styles around you, looking at first impressions, and new clothes. I loved dressing up, customizing my clothes, but comfort was always (and still is) very important to me. I feel that fashion is a creative outlet of expressing one’s self. So of course, back to school style was super important, especially that first impression of a new you.

 

New Clothes, NEW YOU

First Day Ensemble

When I was in high school, I was pretty nerdy. I loved anime (still do) but I loved music and fashion. I was on the volleyball team, chess club, math club, business club, karate club, and president of the knitting club (lol).

Work Around Your Dress Code

I remember always being limited and restricted by dress codes up to high school. I never really wanted to show skin, but I wanted to wear tanks, hats, open toed shoes, spikey accessories, destroyed-looking clothes. I noticed that being the well behaved student that I was, I kind of got away with minimal ripped clothes (lol). Also, you can always hide what you are wearing with a cardigan, jacket, or cover up.

New School Year, New Clothes, New You

Get Away from Dress Codes

I think going back to school as a college student is more fun, since you have absolute freedom in fashion. Also, each time you go back to school, you get to meet new people. I know sometimes college can be a little intimidating and you feel a strange competition in the air, but it might just be your imagination. One tip I always given to students in college is that try to be open-minded, respectful, and friendly. Once you can do that, you would be surprised by how many people would open to you. During my first two years of college, I did not care to make friends because I was so focused on studying. I realized later that it was the time to make friends and that college is about balancing yourself. Balancing homework, work, free-time, discipline, and hang outs is what you learn to do in college.

New Classes, New clothes, NEW YOU

More Fashion Freedom in College

In this look, I’m wearing a tank that was given to me, a button up to cover up, denim shorts, a cap, Nike sneakers, and Marc Jacobs backpack. I like being sporty at school because it is super comfortable. I would not want to wear something troublesome or uncomfortable from 8am-6pm.

College has more freedom in fashion - wear whatever you want

This shoot was super fun because I got to work with a mutual friend. Matt Sy is a photography student and I was very impressed by his skills (especially since he is so young!). It’s nice to work with people who are closer to my age because we can act like kids together. 😀 Follow him on IG: @M4TTSYKE

Palm Tree Obsession – Edgy A-Line Print

Edgy A-Line Print Dress ... classic with a summer twist ... Sangria Sunday ... feminine and know how to have fun ... Disney Land, California Adventure ...

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
