A quickie post wearing another Masha Ma piece. The cool geometric shape is actually the MA logo–très cool non? There’s something a little retro about it that really speaks to me. To tone down the dramatic top, I decided to pair it with probably the most deconstructed piece I own, these awesome Junya Watanabe shorts.

If it’s not already apparent on my instagram from this last PFW, I am a huge fan and admirer of Chinese, Paris-based designer Masha Ma. Her vision for her brand and the MA girl is centered on strength, edge, and aversion to anything status quo. The clothes: strong, modern, sleek. On the body: like a glove. So what is the face of New China and who is she?–a question often asked around these circles–Masha’s answer: she’s edgy, a little bad ass, and above all international. Sounds like my kinda girl!

Back to Grey

How many times will I post an all grey outfit? Too many, but it works! I’m in love with anything heather grey and for all you tanned honeys like me, this is really the perfect color for our skin tone. It’s also very casual but luxurious at the same time–my EXACT MO! Here again is a bit of a high-low mix, of very affordable essentials from THPSHOP.CO and my other standstill Alexander Wang.

Still, one of my favorite ways to capture a trip is through the lens of an iphone. There’s really something special to an ‘insta’. A moment not meant to be duplicated. Some of my fave pictures on this trip (and there are 1000+ taken) are on my phone. Go figure huh? Full outfit details will trickle in as I post full looks next week! All pictures captured by my dearest friend Quan Mai

Make sure to follow me on Instagram to see what I’m up to, where I am, etc!

Yes, the Alexander Wang PJ Romper. I got two of these because, well, a girl just cannot decide between baby blue or pink. What I didn’t realize before I got these is that it’s a one piece. Genius. And now I will never be able to say again that i don’t do rompers…cuz clearly I do now!
