New York Street Style with Minan Wong

11:06 AM
Hey guys! I’m so sorry that it took me forever to share with you my New York street style, so I hope you will forgive me haha. If you didn’t forget, a few months ago, I went to New York. Due to the bad weather, I had no chance to shoot some of my style that I wore while being there. Thank goodness it got warmer and melted by the time my friend Melanie came to New York too. She was so awesome, and offered me to shoot the outfits that I wanted to share with you guys.

You definitely need to check her blog and social media under Labellemel31. As I promised on my instagram, I would like to introduce you to Minan Wong brand. I mentioned in my previous blog post that I met designer Mimi Wong in New York. She told me a bit of the story of her brand. She uses eco-friendly fabrics like organic cotton, recycled wool and recycled PET.  All her collection is made in the US to support the local economy. Wow, she is amazing! How many brands are made in United States today? Not so many! After checking out her collection, and even trying on some pieces, I came to the conclusion that her collection is very elegant, classic and very high end. Who doesn't love that combo? You can wear her clothes for work, business meetings, fashion weeks, etc. Mimi was so nice and let me try some pieces to create some content for my blog. Here we go! I know winter is over, and snow melted a while ago, but better later than never right? ;) 

After Melanie arrived to my hotel, I quickly started changing outfits for the shoot. For my first outfit, I’m wearing a Jill Sander Shirt (that I got at a sample sale for only $50 when I met with other fashion blogger babies) along with a Minan Wong mesh dress that could be perfect for a wedding, ball, graduation event or any fancy occasion. On my instagram, I got many compliments about the lace detail, which is also the best part of the dress in my opinion. Since it was quite chilly in NYC that day, I wore my new Bernando 1946 rain boots. They are super cute and kept my feet dry. The other day, I was wearing sneakers and stepped in a huge puddle, which was a huge mistake. Afterwards, I never took off my rain boots. To stay warm, I wore one of my oversized coats that I rarely had a chance to wear before, because in California the weather is pretty moderate all year.

As for my second outfit, I’m wearing a Minan Wong classic dress that fits me just perfectly. I thought that over knee boots and a basic coat would combine nicely together. Sadly, I didn’t bring any accessories with me. I felt like something was missing, maybe a silky scarf? To give an extra color boost, I wore my new Jill Sander jacket underneath, which I got at the sample sale too. Minan Wong is for women who know how to dress up and are open to mix things up by trying something new. Let me know which one is your favorite!

Mother's Day Gift Ideas from NY&Company #ad

7:00 AM
Mother's Day is coming very soon, and we are all making plans to surprise our moms to tell them how special they are to us! I wish we had Mother's Day every weekend, but because of our busy lives, we sometimes just forget that we are here today because of HER! Mother's Day is one of hardest times of the year in that I want to buy everything and always have a hard time to find the right things for her.

In collaboration with NY&Company, I was able to pick up some of my favorite pieces for my mom and also pick out an outfit to take my mother for a girls date. My favorite selection by NY&Company is always their Eva Mendes Collection. I love Eva Mendes as an actress, strong woman, mother and amazing designer. Every time I try to check out NY&Company for her collection, I end up buying something for myself or my sister. The day we went to the NY&Company store, I saw that they were offering 30% OFF. To be honest, I had a really hard time picking out my outfit. I ended up calling my mom to ask for her help. My mom is a big fan of pastel colors. 

When she saw this beautiful polka dot wrap dress by Eva Mendes that costs only $74.95 $52.46, she said that I have to try it on. As soon as I wore it, I knew it was perfect. It is just ideal for this spring/summer season. The light fabric felt so nice on my skin (btw, when we went to take pictures, I got so many compliments and other women were asking me where I got it). Also, I saw some purses that I couldn't pick which I liked the most. My mom told me that I don't own any small purses in white, which was totally true. Man, she knows my closet better than I do! As soon as we hung up, I started to look for a Mother's Day gift. I wanted something that my mom needed so bad, and as soon I saw this floral wallet, I knew she was going to love it too. After a few minutes of looking around, I thought that it will be cool to also grab a fragrance that smells so sweet - just like my mom! And of course, how could I forget my favorite NY&Company lip gloss? I got one for myself and one for my mom.

What are you planning to give your mom? Please share your ideas!

P.S. This weekend, NY&Company will run 50% OFF for Mother's DAY 💕 and you can participate in their awesome contest to win $5000 shopping spree & meet Eva Mendes by sharing your outfit on Instagram by using #EvaSpringStyleContest
