Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014 Pt. 1

The special may have been filmed today, but we still have a whole week until the show debuts on our televisions! Luckily, we’ve been granted with some snapshots so there’s no way that we couldn’t share it. I know some girls really hate the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show because blah blah watching it makes girls feel bad about themselves and people feel like they should eat a burger, but no. You do you. Let the angels be who they are! They may be naturally skinny (they can’t help that!) or they just want to work out that much – whatever the case, we’re in no place to make assumptions or pass judgements. You should not let people that have different bodies from you make you feel bad. That’s just crazy. So just enjoy the show when it comes on next week – it’s all for entertainment anyways.

Wearing: Topshop

Where: 2014 British Fashion Awards

It might be the kind of outfit that conservative mothers would hate their daughters wearing, but it’s the kind of dress you’re dying to take a risk on – just once.

How We Holiday Party 2014

Holiday party season is upon us and we’d be doing a disservice if we didn’t include a guide like we always do! I’ve only attended one work-related holiday party in my time so I don’t have too much experience. All I know is that last year, I wore a black dress with cut-outs and sheer fabric over the cut-outs. There were at least two other women at the party that wore sheer fabric so I felt like I had done right by being in the correct wheelhouse and theme. Having already purchased my holiday party dress for this year back in June and realizing that it is black, leather, and with a cut-out again, I’m noticing that maybe I’m just too much into a comfort zone. A holiday party is the one time out of the year where you get to try something different and even though I have my dress, I am still considering straying away from that. Here are some of my favorite picks for this year so far! Also, we’re doing this post a little bit earlier than last year so that you still have time to snag some dresses if you’d like!

Wedding Mondays

Good morning everyone! There’s nothing like a holiday weekend with family to rejuvenate you and spring you back into a Monday. As tiring as traveling can be (okay, I was on an hour long flight,) I’m feeling more refreshed than ever and ready to end this year on a high note. We’re back on our Wedding Mondays routine and it feels pretty good.

This morning I’m sharing with you all a dream of a wedding video! While I’ve never even been to New York, I’m so envious of all the rooftop weddings that get to take place there. There is nothing more chic than exchanging nuptials at the top of a building as the sun is going down.

When I’m At Nordstrom, I’m Home

You can take the girl out of Seattle, but you can’t take the Seattle out of the girl. How long have you all been waiting for me to finally say that? I may be living in a new city now, but there are a few things that I can’t quite shake – my Starbucks, my Seahawks, and my Nordstrom. I’m a loyal woman. I generally save Sunday’s for my comfort foods so when I eat out, I’ll go to my favorite Asian restaurants or anything with seafood (though it doesn’t really compare to Seattle, let’s be real.) Today, however, I ventured into a place that I only usually go to in Seattle – the Nordstrom cafe.

As a kid, if I were shopping with my mom, I would always beg her to take me to the Nordstrom cafe. I’d get my usual bowl of tomato soup or clam chowder and a cheese pizza from the kids menu. As I got older, I moved onto the Asian Chicken Salad or one of the pastas and the bistro club. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with most things on the menu. Back in the day, Nordstrom only had one cafe, but now most stores have two restaurants within the retailer.

I know it sounds weird to have such an attachment to a retailer, but the company is doing everything right so at the end of the day how can you not?

  • It started when I was a toddler. Santa photos were never taken anywhere else except Nordstrom.
  • Meal times with my mother were always at the cafe
  • Every employee I’ve ever come across there has been outstanding. When I need something, I let someone know what I’m exactly looking for (either by brand or describing the style) and almost always, they never fail.
  • Convenience. Not able to find something in the store? Pay for it there and they’ll ship it to you or locate it at another store location.
  • 3 words. Nordstrom Wedding Suite.
  • They never not respond to my tweets to them and I love it!

Plus they helped me find this pair of Vince Camuto’s today!

AMA’s 2014 Red Carpet

Kendall Jenner absolutely nailed in Yigal Azrouel on the red carpet last night! The award show wasn’t exactly for her industry or anything like that, but she did present alongside her sisters Khloe and Kylie and she looked the best out of all three!

Wedding Mondays

There once was a time when we would just have a queue of videos to use for Wedding Mondays and I would be overly excited to be sharing another video with everyone every single week. The feelings haven’t changed. I still love the series and what we’re trying to do every week – but I’ll be honest, the wedding videos aren’t coming as often as they should be or as often as I used to promise. In watching so many of these, there’s a part of me that has become highly critical of what I’m seeing, but it’s important for me to remind myself and even all of you that these videos mean so much more than what we’re seeing. A wedding video captures just a small part of a couple’s relationship and leaves out a couple’s love that we don’t see beyond that video. So yes, we’ve watched quite a few tragic videos in our day, but and even though this is obvious and may not be worth mentioning – every couple’s story is the most beautiful part about a wedding day. Not a video.

With that, I’m happy to share a video that I discovered actually a while back – two months back actually! Becky and Mark are merging two cultures with their wedding day. Their rooftop wedding is absolutly gorgeous and one that I’m sure many people can only dream of. I love how this video provides a background on celebrating their two cultures and bringing them together as one. They did a really great job with this one!

Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Jamie Chung

Wearing: Diane von Furstenberg

Where: Big Hero 6 movie premiere

Readers – since Sunday, I have been working on an “I Like Your Style…” post featuring Jamie Chung and I finally finished it yesterday evening. However since I didn’t save the draft as I went and tried to publish it yesterday, WordPress completely deleted the whole thing. These posts usually take me the longest to do because it requires going back to all of their events and appearances and picking out my favorite looks and finding out who exactly they were wearing. Though I was bummed, I knew I didn’t want to try doing it over again even on my day off as I’d like to spend time on different posts for Yow Yow today. So compromise – this post. Jamie Chung was my favorite Real Worlder of all time and she’s like me – a young Asian American woman – so I’m completely behind her!

She has her own blog as well where she details some of her outfits and many of them we love and would’ve been featured in the post that got deleted. You can check it out here!
