Fashion Report- Roberto Cavalli

This week, after watched couple of the fashion runway shows, Roberto Cavalli really had caught my eye. It was very refresh after view those pretty summer pattern. To me, I think it was a right amount of print. Summer season should be full of colors. And the reason I think Cavalli did a great job is if you look at the collection, style are very simple and straight forward, which is in a right among.

When wearing a very colorful pattern, style don't have to be over fancy. Because here's the thing, each dress or outfit should have it's own special quality/personality, it can be just the print, or the style(Either or). If an outfit have too much unique elements, in the end, there will be nothing special about it, because each quality will try to stand out. So even if you are doing a mix and match by yourself, a colorful print top should match with simple pant or skirt or vice versa. I had applied my marketing knowledge into fashions that consumer will only remember one of your special quality(which we call "niche")when selling/promote a certain product, therefore, if there're too many special quality, that means there're nothing special about. Aren't they interesting? - Be elegant; Be fashionable.

Nothing But Sneakers

Nothing But Sneakers

Heels are a symbol that represent feminine. There're girls that I know that are crazy about heels, which to a point that they will only wear heels. "Flat are for loser", yup, word to word. Not that I disagree, as matter of fact, I am a shoe freak, and I got to admit that heels does make our legs look slimmer and talker, that really help and boost that confidence. But once we stand and walk with it for awhile, nope, can't do( I know, heels are not made for a long walking distance). Which this week, I want to share my lately favor fashion item "The wedge sneaker".

I think wedge sneaker is a must have if you are a shoe freak like me, this type of heels are not only stylish, which easy to wear with legging, short and mini skirt. But the most important, they are just so comfortable to walk with it! A pair of nude are perfect with different colorful tops.

Tips: My lazy ways to wear the wedge sneaker are dark blue skinny jean or legging with spring/summer colorful tops. Just keep in mind, when wearing shoes like the wedges sneaker that have a comfortable cuff around the ankle, avoid wear pant that's lose like thost trouser-style jeans. If you are not a pant person, you can always pop a raffle bottom skirt that's above the knee(like those 70s pleat skirt), a t-shirt with a fun pattern and a light material sweater just in case some crazy weather you will got from mother nature. Just try it with different style, because wedges sneaker are very easy to play with and is super flattering. - Be fashionable; Be elegant.

Gift Ideas For Mom

Gift Ideas For Mom

Gift Ideas For Mom by lili-he featuring kate spade tote bag

First, I want to shout out a Happy Mother's day to all the mommies out there! They are just wonderful and beautiful in every age to us. 

This week, I would like to share my list of gift ideas to my fabulous fans(you of course). I personally like to give my mom something that's beauty product related; like a spa gift set. Just something small,  but will definitely give her a "Aaaaa~" moment. No lie, my mom just like most of the great mom our there, don't really spend too much money and times on herself but rather mostly on me(she will made dresses that I want. by the way, I am very lucky to have a super mom that design and make cloth). Anyway, my concept of getting a mother's day gift is think of something that mom wouldn't really buy for themselves, but they will need it in their life. Of course, it really depend on the life style and personality of your mom, if they are very sporty mom, my safe bet will be something that's healthy & sporty related(such as little thing like a gym bag with water bottle or even a massage package). Other example, if mom is not too out going, like a house wife, a spa or a perfume gift set will be a great considerate gift.  

I remember when I was a little girl, I used to wrote my mom a "massage coupon" so that she can use whenever she feel tire, and of course, a mother's day card as a mother's day gift. I am sure I wasn't the only one out there doing something silly like that( a good kind of silly); my mom gave me a big smile, a good long minute hug and a kiss. My point is, mom WILL love their gift no matter what. Keep in mind, you can always DIY your own gift, like a photo frame, or a pieces of jewelry that absolutely made by hand. Sometime, gift can be something small but just made sure be thoughtful!- Be fashionable. Be elegant.

Spring Nail Trend

To me, there’s nothing more important than to have a nice nails. Well, they don’t have to be all colorful, but at least a clean cut and perhaps puff a little, or maybe a layer of base coat? I can tell you straight forward that I am a nail person, sometime even I dress a little boring, and by that I mean jeans and T-shirt. In this fashion situation, were I don’t have time to put some fancy piece on, nail will be a great accessory to put something playful in my hand. This spring, I would like to introduce some fun colors for you ladies to play around and have a colorful spring.

Pastel is always big in the spring season, it match this blooming weather. Pastel yellow, purples, mint and pastel pink looks great with dress and skirt. They are all very girly and cheerful. I personal have couple of the pastel colors from essie, because they carry a layer of white base, which very pop out the creamy color. With stronger color like neon, I will recommend Orly, their “cotton candy”(which looks like peach pink), so adorable and peachy, I love to wear that color with my black sandal. These are the two brands that I go for in the summer.

Higher quality nail brand like Deborah Lippmann, they have a selection of funky and playful color. Such as Í’M Not Edible(panicked pink) and Rockin’Robin( mint mayhem); this two are the one to take you to an extra mile. Wear them to a girls night out will be something fun to try on.

Glitter makes everything pretty, almost everything. I love to have some sparkle spirit when I feel low, well, chocolate comes first, then glitter (sorry L ) but I love them both very much. And with the spring color from Dior, peach orange with glitter; this color will be great for occasion such as going on a date to the beach or farmers market.

I truly believe nail polish is an investment to our selves. Which I always recommend to consume a better nail polish then the super cheap one; the more expensive one comes in a better color, and the ingredients are not as harmful as the cheaper one.

Tips: if there’s some color that you are kind of iffy about, you can always consume the travel size. Nail brand such as Orly comes in this mini bottle (5.4ml); put it on, and see how you feel, if you don’t like it, it wouldn’t be a wasted and it comes in a lower price too.- Be fashionable. Be elegant.
