Small details make a huge difference, especially in fashion world. More often, it’s the little things, accessories or splashes of color, liven up an outfit while tie everything together, as showed above: A spike bracelet edges up a ladylike dress; A mustard heel adds fun to black/white polka dots; A red stiletto pops against a neutral palette; A layered pearl necklace balances the youthful stripes; A peplum hem updates a classic pencil skirt, let alone that bold, delectable hot pink hue!

In Chinese: 细节决定成败,这句老话更应验在我们的日常着装中,很多时候正是一些小配饰或者点缀其间的那一抹亮色让我们的搭配脱颖而出,就像今天的这组给了我很多搭配灵感的图集中所展示的一样:庞克风格的配饰冲淡了裙装的甜腻,彩色的跟鞋给波普图案增添了更多趣味和活力,亮红的绑带高跟鞋让中性色的套装不再单调,富于层次感的珍珠项链平衡了条纹的休闲感,更不用说最近大热的这条亮粉色的花苞裙了!

If the key words for summer accessories are “bold” and “bright” (like these sunny yellow goodies featured here), then for the coming season they should be “embellished” and “animal printed”. About the sizes? Big enough for your ipad or small enough just for your smart phone and lipstick, nothing in between. Continue reading Carry Art With You: Eye Catching Clutches

Weekend Getaway: Three Outfits Based on Two Pieces

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a great week so far. I went on vacation in Lake Placid with my family last week. It’s my first time to go there and I really enjoyed everything: the magnificent views from top of Whiteface Mountain, the relaxing time kayaking on Mirror lake, the exquisite arts and crafts on Main Street, and the fun camping adventures… Grateful for the experience, I want to share with you some of my outfits and also some travel tips.

The first must-see place in my list is Whiteface Mountain. It’s the fifth-highest mountain in New York State, and one of the High Peaks of the Adirondack Mountains. Views from the top are gorgeous. Thanks to the Veterans Memorial Highway, we can drive all the way up, nearly to the peak, which means hiking there requires minimum equipment. That’s perfect for me to transform outfit since I plan to spend the rest of the day in town.
