Hi LOVEs!!!!
I am so happy that I finally have a chance to share this all-white sporty-inspired look with you guys! I thought I lost the SD card that had the photos on it, but I found it as I was packing for my recent move!! It sucks to lose something, but the moment when you find, it is such an absolute relief.

I wore this look a month ago when I went to a fashion event at Zebra Club! In my previous post, I mentioned that I want to enjoy the bright summer days by wearing with vivid colors as much as possible, and I think whites can be counted as vivid, too. Wearing white in summer is fundamental, yet it is still considered to be a major look. This ensemble always remains a hot trend. It's impossible not to love how the crispness and how an all-white look can produce a crisp, luxurious and rich feeling?

When I got these awesome open-toe lace-up booties, this looks instantly popped into my head. Since my hair is pink now, I thought it would be fun to mix up a theme of sweetness and sportif all together. I am totally in love with this combo! While an off-shoulder cropped top and a lace mini skirt emphasize the femininity, it doesn't look too girly and is actually more bouncing and lively because of the bomber jacket and lace-up booties.

Personally, I believe an all-white look can be transformed into an expensive, crisp appearance when paired with gold accessories. However, I styled this one up with silver jewelry this time because I was eager to wear this gorgeous statement necklace from Bad Kitty Accessories that definitely gives some WOW to this look!

If you follow me on Instagram (@aikaslovecloset), you know that I recently toned my hair to bring back a mermaid look again. I have no words to express how much I love this color at the moment. I am planning to make a post regarding my new hair color, so look forward to it!
One last note, I am performing at the Seafair Torchlight Parade this coming Saturday, the 26th. This is my third year performing, and this time I am assigned to be the leader of a flag team (We also have a dance and brass band group!) I've been working so hard towards the parade since March, such as choreography, practices, leads meeting, and etc... It's been some crazy and hectic days, but all I am overflowing with full of excitement! I am lined at the top to lead the whole group which is more than 100 people! Isn't it thrilling? If you are in Seattle this weekend, please come watch me downtown!!! I bet you will have lots of fun :)

Hi LOVEs!
With the warming weather, I am more into an easy breezy cami dresses lately, and I was please when I found this amazing red slip dress on Nasty Gal. Since it's summer, I want to play with vivid colors and try to avoid dark colors as much as I can! I am very comfortable in this dress thanks to the loose fit, and the lacy thin straps give it an extra feminine touch! This dress does everything! Unfortunately, the length wasn't quite right, even though I bought the smallest size.  As a petite girl, I really need to consider the length of the hem to provide the balance for the whole look. Otherwise, it could throw off the impact of the other parts of my outfit and become unremarkable.
Whenever I encounter this issue,of a lengthy hem, I always use a belt for a bit of a magic! I chose an Isabel Marant x H&M leather and metal chain belt, which would go very nicely with the silver pendant. Also, I like the combination of sweetness and metal accent.

This is my first time styling a fedora like this, and I LOVE it! This is a great way to style up a fedora during the summer time. Putting your hair up keeps the back of your neck cool from the summer heat. Also, can I talk about these killer Jeffrey Campbell ankle boots? I'd been looking for summer boots over the years, and had had no luck to find them... But finally! I found comfortable yet funky ones also on Nasty Gal! I even scored them with 75% off!! :) Yeah, there was no reason not to get them!

I combined a leopard print scarf and a biker jacket for the night-time ensemble to keep myself warm!! Yup... Seattle is still getting chilly at the night time! :(
Did you like how I styled the slip dress? Hope you did!

Happy hump day everyone!

Hi LOVEs!!!!
I am deeply sorry for not being able to update the blog for 2 weeks!! I finally finished up everything associated with my move, and you know what? I loooooove my new place!!!! I can't wait to explore the new things around my new house! I found out that it gets me even closer to Alki Beach, which is one of my favorite places in Seattle! In summer, it's amazing to come home at the end of your day and spend your evening along the shore, felling touched by the speechless sunset with the smell of the sea! Such a great way to end of you day!

I hope you remember that I teamed up with an amazing apparel brand, MISSGUIDED to showcase a few items and to create both day and night looks with these items. Now it's time to share the night look with you guys! If you haven't seen the first day look, you can check it from HERE :)
When I was choosing this mint dress for this project, I was sort of concerned. I figure it would be no problem to style this dress to achieve a dress- down ensemble. Yet, I couldn't come up with how I was going to wear it for a classy night out because of the mint color. However, such anxiety immediately disappeared when it arrived and I tried it on. It was very easy for me to pull off a successful night look because the dress itself is just gorgeous!!!! This isn't the only mint dress; there are several different mint dresses on MISSGUIDED! I chose this one because I am obsessed with anything that comes with mesh details, since they are enjoying their moment in the spotlight right now!

What I did to create the night look wearing this pastel color midi dress was I slightly curled my hair, paired with pink gold metallic platforms also from MISSGUIDED, added a red lipstick, and accessorized with some key pieces of jewelry to elevate the seductive touch. Then, I finished the look by adding the pastel clutch bag! See? it was easy, right? These platforms definitely have become my go-to shoes for both day and night. Thanks to the platform soles, I can be comfortably tall! Yes, that is very important to me! No interesting details on the shoes, yet the metallic color never falls to be out of fashion! I was really blown away by how much MISSGUIDED carry killer platforms (of course other shoes, too!) under $100 with vast amount of varieties!


As a personal note, I totally enjoyed photoshooting this look at UW. I really appreciate the great job that James did to make this whole set so much fun! There are tons of breathtaking buildings and sceneries at UW. Even the single light stand can be the perfect backdrop to compliment the whole look! I can't wait to go back and find other fun places to shoot at!

I hope you love the pictures as well as how I styled the dress for the night look!

       Happy Friday sweeties
