Hello fellow Chictopians!
Annabel and I will be doing separate posts to answer all of your questions!
First off, I’ll just answer some general questions about myself. Well, I just finished my first year of college, I’m full Chinese and 5’7"
Yeah, pretty tall for an asian chick.
Besides fashion I love music. I have too many favorites bands so I’ll just list some of my favorite genres: Electro, rock, psychedelic-rock, nu-wave, some trip-hop, alterna, downtempo hmm i think that’s about it. But i do listen to a lot of music. I don’t think i could survive a day without any music.
Also, I’m a sucker for romantic movies. Before Sunrise/ Before Sunset, True Romance, Casablanca, and 2 days in Paris, but I do love me a violent film once in a while. Call it my “dark side” because I love all things to do with vampires, zombies, witches and other slightly sadistic topics.
Ok moving on…favorite designers? Man there are just too many to name but I do have some listed on my personal blog. Lately, I’ve been trying to get into that whole Neo-goth trend, hence the all black. But it’s hard since it is summer and all. I’ve always just felt more comfortable wearing a lot of black. Makes me feel more badass I guess, haha.
Favorite pair of shoes? I like all my shoes, especially heels, but i don’t think i have a favorite pair…yet. Oh and to answer ann_evelyn’s question as to whether we wear flats: yeah I do most of the time actually, but I wish I could run around in heels ALL the time. I do try though!
And to answer Lydia’s question, I didn’t know Lulu until I joined Chictopia. I was a long time reader of her blog before then but I guess you could say she “found me” on chictopia. We probably only look similar in pics because we both don’t really look in the camera and we’re asian…
Hmm hobbies… Chictopia-ing? Can that be a hobby? Well besides fashion related hobbies, I was a dancer for most of my life. Up until last year when I had to quit because I was leaving for college. Some of my favorite moments are when I was on stage dancing. It’s really a rush I can’t explain.
How often do I wear jeans? I don’t really wear jeans that often, usually just for work ( I waitress at this sushi place by my house) but when I do it’s usually my trusty Ksubi’s!
Fashionispoison: I don’t really shop that much. I browse a lot online and usually wait until it’s on sale. When I do need to shop, it’s usually at thrift/vintage stores just to get my “fix” which is usually around once a week or two but I really try and not shop so much :X
Hmm trend that I hate right now? Well, it’s not really a trend more like an epidemic!! Those “club girls” with their overdone makeup, low-cut tops, booty shorts and designer bag. Lulu’s talked about them a lot and they are just horrid!!! Do they really think they look good like that?
bexlea and starrgirl: Annabel and I haven’t know each other for very long so I wouldn’t say we’re influenced by each other’s style. I do adore how Annabel dresses though, so cute and effortless! She’s such a sweet girl with amazing style!
Describe my style in 3 words? Gah that’s hard…feminine, dark, classic? ahhh i don’t know, that took me a while. How would YOU guys describe my style?
Tali: Career-wise I would love to work in fashion, specifically something in styling or dealing with the business side of fashion such as marketing and PR.
If I could have any job it would be Carine Roitfeld’s or anyone on the Paris Vogue “dream team” for that matter.
Alright, I think that’s about it. If you guys have any other questions don’t hesitate to ask!
