A romantic date! Las Vegas + San Francisco @ Las Vegas.

Every city has it’s own character. Sometimes you will wake up and say “Oh! I want something crazy like Vegas!” or on a rainy day, you will dream about Hawaiian sunshine! Pick your favorite city tote bag to express yourself while you are on the road.

每天起床就是天馬行空的想,今天要去哪裡玩!水瓶座的通病真的就是一刻不得閒!也因為就是有這樣的想法, 我把自己創作的畫作變成了一個一個的托特包!今天起床,也許就是想要一個暖洋洋的夏威夷陽光. 一整個禮拜被老闆追殺,週末就是想要來個西班牙式的大喝醉.今天你想要怎麼樣的心情呢? 帶上pinkpunkdesign 的City tote bag一起去旅行吧!

Syl SF: Rooftop Brunch Party

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Our faithful readers should know C and I have been best friends since college. We moved to the US for graduate school the same year and have supported each other in many ways. She is not only my best friend but also a sister.  We are the best party, shopping and traveling partners, and spent many new years together exploring new places. Even though she moved to Asia, the long distance cannot stop us from seeing each other or from traveling together.

Syl Ibiza: Platform Espadrille Sneakers

Photo Mar 23, 10 27 10 PM

Spring is a fun season for sandals, wedges and espadrilles. So what is trendy for this Spring? I would say its definitely the platform espadrilles sneakers. If you have ever traveled to Spain, you would have seen espadrilles everywhere. I accidentally saw and got this pair of platform espadrille sneakers in Ibiza last October because I was so tired of wearing flip flops while walking on stone roads all day.

Syl SF: Is Spring here yet?

Photo Mar 21, 8 56 50 PM

The weather in SF has been inconsistent lately. The sun would come out in the morning but the temperature would suddenly drop and rain would come from nowhere in the afternoon. This morning I was so excited to wear a bright yellow jacket with pastel pink pants to welcome the spring season and to look great for the Rebecca Minkoff event.

舊金山的天氣最近很不穩定。常常早上出太陽,中午以後卻下大雨。今天早上我還很興奮的穿上春天的顏色要去參加Rebecca Minkoff的event。沒想到太陽出現不到兩個小時,馬上又開始下起大雨!

Syl SF: Meeting Rebacca Minkoff

Photo Mar 19, 1 01 21 PM

I have been asked by my readers to discuss what are my favorite brands. This is a very tough question since I usually like to shop for cute and fashionable products and not just brands.  As I grow older, I really look for the quality and not just the hottest trends.

有很多人都問過我這個問題,最喜歡的牌子是什麼?老實說,善變個性的我並沒有最喜歡的牌子,因為我買東西通常都只看商品跟品質。的確年紀越大,也越注重品質更大於流行度。

Syl BCN: Hola! Barcelona!

Photo Sep 26, 7 11 51 AM

I didn’t think I would visit Barcelona so soon again! 4 years later I’m here for my best friend’s wedding.  Barcelona is still amazing and I can’t resist its charm: gorgeous weather, amazing food and friendly people! As soon as I landed in BCN, I realized that I left my heart here 4 years ago and it never left!

從來沒有想到四年後我還會再回來西班牙,而且這次還是為了好朋友的婚禮而來。巴塞隆納還是這麼的美,百吃不膩的tapas還是這麼美味,當然還有熱情的南歐人還是一樣好客。當飛機一降落,我才恍然發現我的心在四年前一直都留在這從來沒有離開過! 🙂

Syl SF: Culottes Kind of Day

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetI just love all different styles of culottes. They are so comfy that I love wearing them especially on the one week of every month since my whole body gets so bloated. They are so easy to dress up or dress down. Matching your culottes with your sweatshirts and sneakers completes the casual look while matching them with your blouse and pumps completes a more formal look. They are just so versatile and easy to pair with. 🙂

我迷戀各種款式的褲裙已經很久了。他們就是這麽舒服。尤其是女生每個月的那個特別的禮拜, 總是大水腫的我,褲裙就是那個禮拜的最愛。不管是想要正式的穿著或是休閒的打扮,都非常好搭配。

Syl SF: Rainy Day in SF

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

It has been raining non-stop for the past two weeks in San Francisco. The weather is cold, wet, and windy. Although we need rain to help with the drought, I do miss the sun and warm weather. Thanks to my favorite Hunter rain boots, my feet get to stay dry and warm. I got this limited edition 2 years ago in Taipei. They don’t look like one of the classy Hunter collections and instead are so much lighter, slimmer and the best thing is that you wouldn’t even know they were rain boots if you didn’t pay close attention!

這兩個禮拜以來應該是我在舊金山看到下這麼久的雨一次! 又冷,又濕,風也超大。雖然說灣區乾旱很久了,但是我還是很想念那可愛的加州陽光。感謝Hunter雨靴度過這兩個禮拜。我是在兩年前的冬天在信義誠品買的,當下一看到就很喜歡,因為它的設計有別於一般典型的Hunter 雨靴,比較輕,也比較能修飾腿型,最棒的是你要近看才會發現這是雨靴!

Syl & C: Who doesn’t love dress code?!

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

We are like most other girls. We love dressing up and playing with different dress codes. Although I have to admit that I’m the one who enjoys proposing dress code ideas whenever we have a chance.  I know my friends sometimes get a little bit annoyed by me. Although they all like to complain every time at first, they still turn up looking so beautiful and dressed up! I’m always so proud of them and it is just so much fun! There is no doubt that girls love finding different excuses to go on a shopping trip! 😉

就跟每個女生一樣:喜歡打扮,喜歡在party的時候玩不同的穿著主題規定。老實說在一群姐妹們當中,只要有逮到任何可以打扮的機會,我最愛第一個發號施令規定大家的穿著。我也知道很多時候我的姐妹會覺得很煩跟囉嗦,不過看到大家最後都還是亮麗出場玩得不亦樂乎, 我就格外的開心!  不可否認,每個女生天性都是一樣的,逮到機會可以好好逛街買東西,怎麼可以浪費。

Syl & C: Vegas Baby!

160130_sylvia_0021

The sin city, Vegas, has always been one of my favorite cities in the US. Besides being known for unofficial national hot spot for bachelor and bachelorette parties, Vegas is also the best city for a short get-away with girlfriends. If you like shopping, watching shows, night life and enjoying good food, Vegas is definitely the best place to go! Believe it or not, girls actually spend less money here than going anywhere else in the US for partying, better price and experiences!

罪惡之城Vegas一直都是我在美國最喜歡的城市之一。除了是單身派對的最佳去處以外,Vegas也很適合跟一大票好姐妹去玩。所有女生喜歡做的事情這裡都有:逛街,看秀,夜生活,美食! 也不用擔心交通的問題,只要飯店住得對,到哪裡都是walking distance,當然走累了,滿街的計程車跟uber隨招隨有。不要以為這樣子的行程需要花大把鈔票,其實會跟其他的美國大城市比,Vegas卻便宜多了!

Syl AZ: Denim Dress in the Desert

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Scottsdale is a really fun city to visit. I love the dry-heat, gigantic cacti everywhere, crazy night life, clean streets, and nice people. Old town Scottsdale is my favorite as well as Sedona. I love that people here always dress nicely when going out for brunch or dinner and so for my brunch today I wore a summer denim dress paired with my favorite comfortable wedges from TOMS.

Syl SF: Silk Culottes

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

After I got two pairs in Korea this May, I absolutely fell in love with wide leg pants. The reason why I like them so much is because wide leg pants are perfect for the hot and humid summer season. Your legs are able to breathe and you will not be sweating while strolling the streets. If, like me, you are a human who dislikes butt sweat, wide leg pants are an even grander option, and infinitely airier than everyday dresses.

Syl SF: S.P.Y. Boutique in SF

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Korean fashion has been the leading trend in Asia for the past 5 years. After moving back to Asia, I have fallen in love with Korean style of dress.  Similar to European styles, Korean adds much more detail with better cuts for petite, slim, and tall female figures.  I and other Asian girls have problems shopping at Zara, H&M due to shoulder line being off, the sleeves/pants/dresses are too long.   So in summary, European design, better cut for petite, slim, and tall women is why I shop heavily for Korean fashion. After moving back to SF, I could not find similar styles and cuts of clothing and decided to partner with my friend to import fashion from Korean as my own boutique online shop and bring some of the best, hard to find, fashionable cuts to the US.

Syl SF: Korean Style…韓貨? 韓版? 韓款?

IMG_1358

對於比較偏向歐美風的S來說, 搬回台灣的這兩年, 在台北買衣服的選擇真的非常有限, 有好一陣子不是Mango就是Zara, 買衣服真是遇到了大瓶頸, 在台北大街小巷的韓貨店卻讓S慢慢發現韓風其實多半是歐美風的延伸, 更多的細節設計, 讓整體想要營造的感覺又更豐富, 兩個最大的差別, 其實就是在於複雜度, 韓貨會在亞洲大發異彩不外乎高質感, 適合亞洲人的剪裁, 真的是所謂集東西之大成! 相信姊妹們在zara都遇過跟我類似的情況, 胸腺不對, 肩帶過長等等, 韓貨的部分真的都不太會遇到這樣的問題, 像S最愛買的西裝外套, 上衣到洋裝常常都是one size, 對於一般身材的姊妹來說都不是問題, 不過因為畢竟現在市面上也有很多韓貨的仿冒品, 要怎麼分別呢?!
