My LA Winter Uniform

Despite all the sales, I haven’t been buying a lot of new clothing pieces lately, which usually automatically warrants a new outfit blog post. However, there has been one outfit that I’ve been wanting to share – this classic, simplistic “winter” outfit that’s effortless to throw on and looks polished. It composes of: a neutral sweater or top, relaxed jeans, black booties, and a trench coat (same one as featured in this post). I’ve worn this outfit quite a few…

His and Her Outfits – Styling Each Other

Recently I was inspired by YouTube’s “boyfriend buys my outfits” videos, but instead of just having my boyfriend buy me something, I thought it would be more interesting if I also picked out an outfit for him as well. I’ve always thought he has a great sense of fashion. He would point out pieces that he thinks would look good on me, but they are often quite unique and different than my usual style; so I was intrigued to see…

On Day in LA – 5 Things I Did Alone

If you’ve read my blog before (especially this post and this post), or know me in real life, of course, then you’d know I love spending some alone time. However, that’s not to say that I’m completely at ease with it. Even though I know I enjoy it, it still feels daunting sometimes and the temptation to just bum it at home can be strong. It’s kind of like exercising, you just have to get yourself to do it because…

Marciano Art Foundation

There’s a new museum in town and I got to see it last weekend courtesy of my friend Cathy who scored tickets and kindly invited me to come along. Like The Broad, tickets to Marciano Art Foundation are free but you need to reserve online in advance – new tickets are released on the 1st of every month. I looked through the museum’s website briefly before going and got the impression that the art pieces are a lot like those…

Thrifted on Melrose

Stretching from N San Vincente Blvd in West Hollywood all the way beyond Hollywood to Hoover St, Melrose Ave is one of the most interesting roads in LA (to me). I’ve made a quite a few visits to the west section of the road – eating vegan Mexican food at Gracias Madre, sipping coffee at Alfred Coffee, window shopping in Melrose Place, and taking cheesy photos at the Paul Smith pink wall. The farthest I’ve ventured to is Fairfax High…

Old LA Zoo

LA may not be the oldest city around, but it would take years to explore all of its nooks and crannies. One of the quirky spots that has been on my radar for a while is the Old LA Zoo, an area in Griffith Park with abandoned cages that used to house animals decades ago. Through the years the ruins have become heavily covered with graffiti. With nature as its the backdrop of the decay, there’s a slight eerie feeling…

A White Romper & The Broad Part II

Sunday means another day of exploring! This morning I woke up at 5:55am to watch my hero Roger Federer win his 8th Wimbledon and 19th grand slam. I’ve been watching him play since 2005 and needlessly to say, I was absolutely overjoyed. The match was short and left me plenty of time to get ready for our visit to The Broad at 10am! We visited the museum last year (read here) but did not plan well enough to get into…

Living in a Big City

Living in LA, one of the topics I think of a lot is well… what it’s like to live in LA. I’ve lived in several big cities in my life – Beijing, London, LA. I can’t say much about living in Beijing because I was too young to be autonomous, but I have noticed so many similarities between London and LA, two cities that can hardly be more different than each other. London is dense, ancient, and rainy while LA…
