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 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 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: 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 SF: Outing in Wine Country / Pencil skirts are versatile!

We often wear our pencil skirts to a formal setting. I have worn these types of floral print pencil skirts to work, various engagement parties, and other events. I usually just add a blouse and pumps, and I’m done! However you can also wear this during laid back occasions as well. It’s not only easy to dress up but also very easy to dress down.

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.
