Work Outfit

Working in IT, I have no pressure to dress up to the office everyday. Most of the people I work with are guys, and most of the people care less about what we wear to the office - as long as it is appropriate of course. But talking about personal brand, what you wear to the office can communicate and promote what kind of person you want to be pictured as. For me, I always want to be seen as bright, fun, and creative. I define myself as colors; so as much as possible, I would wear something with color to the office. Winter is not an exception.

Now I would like to share with you the outfit I styled for office purposes:



Top - JC Penney, Vest - Forever XXI, Skirt - Forever XXI, Shoes - Forever XXI


Dress & Blazer - Unbranded , Shoes - Jessica Simpson


Dress - JC Penney , Blazer - Mango, Shoes - Nine West


Top - Elle, Skirt - Zara, Cardigan - Forever XXI, Shoes - Mossimo


Top - Forever XXI, Pants - Forever XXI, Flats - Tory Burch


Top - Unbranded, Pants - Forever XXI, Flats - Aldo 



Which one do you like the most? ^^ Hope this is useful for your daily 'work life' !

STOP me.

Happy Summer everyone! The summer in Chicago has been amazingly wet. Today I am playing around with my 'Trial and Error Friday' and I found my self-sewn dress that I made 2 years ago for a class and a show. Yellow is the definite perfect color for summer and to compliment the color, I used red bow and belt! Now guess what .. dudu du du du.. I'm lovin it! McDonald's! Ha. Just kidding. I am happy with how funny and cute I looked with this outfit. But taking picture outside like that on the stop sign was very embarrassing (Oh it was my grandma's idea). Okay. Stop me! 

DIY dress, Forever 21 Bow, Charlotte Russe shoes











Alright. What do you think all? NAY or YAY? either way - happy summer again!

Love,

Catherine

My 'Most Creative' Make Up Tutorial

Hi everyone! I bet no one ever wonder how I do make up because normally I either don't put on make up or put on a horrible make up perhaps? But since January or February I have been digging some YouTube videos to grab some of the 'best practice' (ha) of how to do a natural looking make up. I am sharing a video of how I normally do my make up with you below! Tips: I try not to put on thick make up - so normally I would skip eye shadow and blush on. I do put on double eyelid tape, though, because it helps enlarge my eyes. My eyes are pretty helpless because I fear putting on those soft lenses that can make my eyes bigger, so the closer I can get to enlarge my eyes is solely putting on the tape!

Enjoy!



Many past due LOVE,

Catherine
