Closet: Prep for Fall 17 with ZARA

Here’s a post dedicated to Zara FALL 17 collection.

No secret, I’m a big time Zara shopper. However, I do not buy every season because, personally, I think their quality, fit and design are quite inconsistent- even from the same season/collection, at times. But, HURRAH! to the FA17 collection Aug-Sept launch (as we know the brand drops new items on a weekly basis). Fall pantone so on point, prints and silhouettes as well. Two weeks ago, I was just going to drop by for a pair of knee-high spotted online, yet found several surprisingly great fit and quality pieces, and the rest is history……


The pair of knee-high mentioned above. FYI, sold out online and finally restocked! I am very particular with boots –especially over the knee. I had hard time looking for all-around the right height, right heels, right color, right material and right toe(!) one the past two fa/wi. Plus, you do want the quality while not to overspend on something that could only be worn for *finger cross* 1.5 months (Cheers, LA weather). So, PLEASE GO GET THIS IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR ONE.  Amazing fit.


Beautiful floral & mustard.


My top 3 pick- that I highly recommend: both fit and quality wise. And these pieces go with everything, day and night. Please agree! (P/s: everyone has different body shapes, but I finally found the most perfect Mom jeans fit for me, high waisted and straight leg, right there)

While I was snapping these pictures from the website, I made another list, all impromptu.

Tainan: Coffee Shop 兩倆

A trip down south- Tainan, Taiwan. December 2016.

Had this coffee shop on my list but I didn’t think that I was going to make it. This place opens at 2pm and I wanted to catch the train after lunch. Apparently, my plan changed yet with not regret. The cheesecake is everything! I haven’t had such a good one in so long because it really is so hard to find the perfect one with the right sweetness, right texture and the right crust! It’s a quiet, small space with a bar and no more than 5 little coffee tables. I could spend my whole evening here. Located in an old and narrow alley where you could so easily missed, second floor. Walk in, you’ll smell coffee and arts.

Autumn in Portland

Portland, Oregon. November 2016. 

“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.”

Live in the moment. Stop the waiting game, we’re all ready the split second we say we are.

It was an unplanned and totally spontaneous trip. I did not expect myself to be in Portland the very next morning. I was searching for something in life that I can’t reach, it put me in struggle and was dragging me back. I disliked the way I was, unsatisfied with the things I did, everything just doesn’t seems right. I escaped from my reality trying to hide. Not a good idea but a good move. A trip that is full of surprises and inspirations. Maybe sometimes the answer we’re looking for is beyond our sight. Step out there, you find a different you.
