Printed Shorts x 6 Ways

Happy Monday!

To kickstart a new week, I've picked a pair of black and white printed shorts to restyle. Whenver we make a purchase decision at a clothing store, I'm sure we're all wondering "will I wear this?", "do I have anything to go with this?" or "how often will I wear it?" Those are all very important questions, and I'm making it a personal mission to restyle the HECK out of as many pieces as possible.

Prints are huge this year - everything from floral patterns, graphic prints, aztec patterns, cute zebras and birds.. you name it! These prints may look busy but play a part in jazzing up an old outfit. Here are the six ways of which I have restyled them.

From left to right:

9 to 5er  - The tailored blazer and flowy white top makes it fun but still suitable for a professional setting.

Boho Beach - Take this off shoulder top and feather earrings for a twirl at the beach.

Preppy Blair - Add a cropped cardigan and a headband to get a sharp, preppy look.

Brights - Just add a bright coloured top and some statement jewlery and you're good to go.

Print on Print - Yes I did! Print on print can work. Here I paired stars with the diamonds on the shorts for some extra bling ;)

Culture Coulture - I really like the colours on this pashmina. Paired with some dangling earrings and a yellow belt, I'm ready to hit the museum or an outdoor concert.

What's your favorite look? Or more importantly, which look would YOU wear?

Have a great one!

Taiwan Fest

Greetings! I just came back from a long weekend work event - exhausted but more inspired and refreshed than ever. I wish I had shared my photos of the Taiwan Fest in downtown vancouver earlier to encourage more people to go. I had so much fun that I went back the next day just for MORE food!

The Taiwan Fest took place over the Labour Day long weekend. Apart from the previous years, the festival took place in the heart of downtown - on Granville Street and behind the Vancouver Art Gallery. The event featured lots of businesses, cultural games and activities (ie. lantern making and chinese vegetable plants), as well as Taiwanese music artists and bands. The highlight however was the amazing variety of traditional food! As a Taiwanese, I would have to say that the dishes were a fairly decent portrayal of the traditional street foods back home. The fried shrimp rolls, braised pigfoot with thin noodles, brown rice cake (really pork blood mixed with rice..), lamb skewers, etc....this was more authentic and diverse than the night market! Needless to say, I would HIGHLY recommend everyone to check it out next year.

Random Thursday: Favorite Feel Good Movie

This week's Random Thursday topic is.....Favorite Feel Good Movies. Sweet. Time to share my secret indulgence in Pixar and my love for Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep.


P How does that go again? Doesn't matter. The characters in this movie are cute to the max and I'm just a sucker for animated creatures. Dory has so many shining moments in this movie.

Dory's memory loss.
