THE LAST DAY OF SUMMER


There pictures were taken on the last day of summer(How sad!) a couple weeks ago.
I've been super busy with a business trip to Orlando,
I couldn't post these any earlier.
It's getting cooler and cooler in NYC,
now it's time to say goodbye to my see-through tops.

I went fall shopping today tho, that was pretty exciting!
What do you guys have on your list for fall/winter?

MIRROR MIRROR


It's been super long week for me,
I've been waiting for this weekend so eagerly.
I have to say that it felt so good to sleep in!! :)

I recently purchased these tortoise sunnies with mirror lenses from Made eyewear,
where you can customize your glasses and sunnies with different designs and colors,
I absolutely LOVE them!
First of all, it's affordable and the quality is great for the price.
I seriously recommend getting one if you are looking for sunglasses.
Mine is a Skylar with white tort everything and blue mirror lenses.
And make sure you like their fb page and get 15%off :)

Have a great weekend, people!

OOTD :: Neoplan Pencil Skirt and Birkendstock





When Birkenstock got super popular in Korea years ago,
I didn't like it because 1.everyone got a pair 2.not very attractive looking to me at that time.
But guess what, Now I love wearing them with my sweatpants, dresses and many more!

Especially with any type of feminine outfit, I love wearing Birkenstock as a little twist.
I think simple and bold look of my Arizona sandals balances out nicely.

I can't believe that the weekend came to end already.
But it's like that every weekend tho, right?
This weekend I ran a lot of errands, visited one of my best friends in Central Jersey for a bonfire in the backyard
and went surfing to Rockaway beach with my man and closest work buddy.
Over all, it was a pretty damn good weekend and I feel ready for the week :)
I hope everyone feels the same and thanks for reading!

OOTD :: Summer Hat and Stripes


When I am not sure what to wear, I always go for stripes.
Can't go wrong with stripes, right?
Especially this boxy stripe t-shirt goes with pretty much anything.

Oh, also I found my summer hat :)
I love how its got zig-zag patterns on the edge with blue lining.

I hope you guys had a smooth Monday. 
Thanks for reading!

OOTD :: Jumpsuit and Statement Jacket


I recently got this black cotton jumpsuit with zip in front from Zara.
It's super comfy yet looks not too casual,
I've been loving how I can dress it up and down.
I could wear like this to a casual dinner with my fiancé on a weekend,
and even to a fashion networking event after work on a week day!

I'm heading to Baltimore to see some friends tomorrow,
pretty excited to have 3-day weekend :)
Stay tuned for my casual outfit post this weekend
and thanks for reading!

OOTD :: Flowers and Amethyst


You guys know how much I love patterns.
And daisy is my favorite flower so when I saw this dress in H&M store I was like "That's mine!" :)

I've been eyeing for a light drapey long cardigan for the longest time.
I am so glad I found one otherwise I'd have gone crazy!

Aw! When I went on a business trip to China,
I spotted this gorgeous amethyst piece.
I loved it so much and one of the vendors I work with made a necklace with it for me :)
I love the simple and clean look of the necklace.

OOTD :: Sweatpants Love


It took me forever to find a good fitted sweatpants but I found it :)
I got mine from Low Classic when I visited Korea a few month ago.
I love wearing sweatpants with a crop top on lazy days.
It's just so comfy! Can't get enough of it.
I should grab a shorts as well since it's been pretty warm.

You own some sweatpants, too?
Please share how you style them if you do :)

OOTD :: Grey on Grey


I bought this lace slip dress a while ago
but I forgot about it because it wasn't warming up in New York.

It was a cloudy & cool day so I layered a sweatshirt on top of it.
And because I was in chill mood, I styled it with a pair of converse:)
I love mix and match different concepts in clothes,
I find a good combination can make you look chic and effortless.

OOTD :: 50 Shades of Blue


I am loving the warmer weather in NY right now,
it's sprinkling a bit but I don't mind it at all.

This is what I wore last weekend for a lovely brunch in Soho,
I will upload pictures of the restaurant I went soon! :)
I bought these super cute and comfy furry leopard slip on sneakers
and the velvet skinny pants from Gap 
when they were on mad sale.
I love layering different tones of a color
like I am wearing teal-bright blue-deep blue combi.

I heard it's gonna be cold again for a while
but I am flying to Las Vegas this Friday
so...lucky me! :)
I hope I can bring back a lot to blog about in the Vegas!!

You guys stay warm, alright?
Till next time, take care!

Giovanny Rana

Giovanny Rana


Hi, everybody!
A couple weeks ago, I went to Javits center to research with a few coworkers
at the JA show which is a big fine jewelry show in New York.
We decided to grab lunch in Chelsea,walked around and found Giovanny Rana.



I loved how easy to spot this restaurant
The restaurants that food bloggers blog about thesedays are most of the times,
hard to find!
It's right at the front of Chelsea market,
you can't miss it :)


Pretty simple menu, but everything sounded so good
it took me forever to pick one!


Spinach and mascarpone ravioli, Crispy Parmigiano reggiano basket
If you a cheese lover like me, this would be cheese heaven in your mouth!
The cremy mascarpone in the ravioli is nice,
The crispy-chewy parmigiano reggiano basket is phenomenal!


Squid ink linguine, Broccoli Rabe, Lobster
The pasta was cooked just right, loved the texture.
But I think Lobster meat could be a bit bigger,
they were kind of shrunk to tiny pieces.


Roasted breast of chicken, Kale, Bacon, Sweet potatoes
This would be the most healthy choice out of 4 dishes,
the chicken is so tender and juicy.
The combination of crunchy kale chips, creamy kale purée 
and roasted sweet potato was great!


Pumpkin ravioli,Parmigiano reggiano,Toasted sunflower seeds
This was what I ordered and I kind of stole a little bit of what my friends ordered :)
This one doesn't look so cheesy but it actually is.
The toasted sunflower seeds give that nice crunchiness and nutty flavor.
Pretty heavy, but they served just the right amount.


I loved the warm, cozy feeling in the restaurant.


Oh, and they use fresh pasta!
The pasta making machine and tools in the past are at every corner,
it's almost like a pasta museum.
You can also get it to go and it would be much cheaper.

It got really busy when I was there around 1pm on the weekend,
it was pretty hard to get the server's attention 
and the service was pretty ordinary.
Except for that, I really enjoyed there :)

Thanks for reading!!

OOTD :: Furry Sunday


Hi, guys!
Today I want to share what I wore for New York Fashion Week a while ago.

As you can guess from my outfit, it was pretty chilly.
I love anything with numbers these days from t-shirts to sweaters
just like mine that I am wearing :)
This velvet skinny pants I bought from Gap not too long ago is so warm, such a life saver!
I love my fur coats but I didn't really get to wear them much this winter.
I tend to throw two outers on when it's really really cold
and it has been that cold the whole time!
You can layer an outer underneath a fur coat so...
Anyways, I was glad I had it on.

It's finally getting warmed up in New York finally.
I can't wait to be in a bit warmer weather with lighter clothes on...
I hope you guys are having wonderful weekend!

Pinto

Pinto


Today I want to introduce you this little casual thai restaurant called "Pinto"
It's in west village, one of my favorite areas in Manhattan.

118 Christopher St New York, NY 10014 
(between Bedford St & Bleecker St)

I have to warn you,
it's pretty hard to find.
It took me 30 mins because there is no proper sign or anything
and google maps was leading me so many different directions.
But trust me, it was definitely worth it!! :)


The interior is modern and cozy at the same time.
I recommend you to get a table right by the window.
There are only one or two tables, 
you know that gives you and your company a little bit more of privacy
plus you can peoplewatch :)
The servers are nice enough to come pretty often to check on you. 


A small house salad comes with every meal.
Choose an appetizer, one main course and what kind of meat you want.
I picked organic tofu in my Pad thai.


And grab a thai iced tea!
They give you ice cubes that are made of the tea, the tea, cream and syrup separate.
I felt so fancy haha



Mushroom Crunch!
So good with the sesames all over :)



Especially with the creamy sauce that they give you,
it's sensational!


I had this papaya salad almost everyday while I was in Thailand last summer.
I just love how it's tangy, spicy, sweet and nutty at the same time!


And my Pad thai was a killer!!!!

The meal at Pinto was very satisfying.
Especially because it was $8.
The servings there isn't huge like other american restaurants,
but you get decent amount!

If you want to find out more about this restaurant 
here's their website
