Playing with Plaids





I am happy to see that plaid is on trend, even though it always is to me!
It reminds me of my school years when I wore a plaid skirt skirt or dress to school. I was always a popular girl, even though 6th grade was a nightmare, but that story is for another day. Other than that, I hold fond memories of school and I am still friends with most of my childhood classmates.

Anyway, above are some of my favorite plaid items this season. I like the unconventional pants and the beautiful embellished skirt, they have a different, but very beautiful touch.

And those Burberry booties look good with anything... I am thinking red skinnies.  By the way, you can find all these at The Real Real.

What do you think? Do you have any favorites?

Much love,

Kate

Want to Help the Environment?

                         


Today is the first ever National Consignment Day and I would like to talk about some of the benefits.

Recycling is not only for paper, recycling your old clothes helps the environment. It reduces the amount of pollution from production and agriculture. By recycling textile goods at consignment stores, we reduce the water pollution from crop as well as the emissions from factories.
Another good side of consignment stores is that it allows us to buy things we might not able to afford at retail value.

I visit second hand stores from time to time looking for treasures, as I call them, and recently, I came across The Real Real. I love it because I can sell items that I no longer wear, and I still get a fair amount when I consign with them.

I have a thing for unique things and a lot of them come from The Real Real. There is something for every taste and something that will make you stand out anywhere you go. I promise.

The Real Real also offers one of a kind home decor that you will love. The holidays are around the corner and this is a place you do not want to miss. Shop or sell!

It’s Halloween Month!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
                       


              

With October comes Halloween. Are you into it?

I love the weather, the costumes, the parties and the scary movies!

Among my favorite movies are “The Exorcist”, “The Conjuring” movies and “The Omen”. I also like vampire movies.

We are planning on going to a haunted tour in Naperville, IL this year. People don’t usually dress up for the tours, but I am thinking of maybe doing that.

Here are some of my favorite costume choices shown above. I'm still undecided which one is my favorite.

What do you think? What are your favorite scary movies? Have you chosen a Halloween costume, yet?

If you’re dressing up, please share!

Much love,

Kate

Have you guys had a chance to follow NYFW?
I just started a new job and have been busy, but I am keeping up with the official NYFW and Vogue Runway apps.
I want to finish this post before I watch the Ralph Lauren runway show, I just got an alert.

Anyway, I loved Chromat's show last week. I loved seeing models of different backgrounds, ages, and body shapes. What a beautiful sight!
And what I love the most is seeing that our vision is changing and we are including everyone now, giving the younger generation hope. We are finally showing them that they are accepted and can be successful no matter what they look like.

We are all beautiful in somebody's eyes, but being accepting of ourselves is what matters. Do not compare yourself with everybody else or you will be unhappy, just learn to accept yourself and understand that you have qualities that make you unique. I wish I had learnt this when I was younger and bullied for being too thin. It caused me a lot of insecurity and shame that followed me into bad relationships. both romantic and non-romantic.

I was blown away by this show. I do not find any woman more attractive than the other or others. They are all stunning. As are you!

Much love,

Kate
