What to Wear: Date Night Looks and Beyond

I don't focus on buying going-out pieces often, but when I do, I always invest in styles I know I'll wear on more than one occasion. This red jumpsuit, I wore (back in December) to a holiday party works so good for many events. For a Vday date, Chinese New Year, girls night out, and even a spring/summer wedding, it's such a fun, dressy meets casual piece. Chong, my husband also loves the color red, so it's nice to get fancy, surprise your guy and keep that fire burning from time to time. If red isn't your color, we all know how a black dress always works its magic. The way to make it feel new again is updating with gorgeous details such as lace like Carlina did here. This one is just so pretty and a great go-to that's versatile. I might have to borrow it from her one day :). This fun little shoot we did at Johnny Doughnuts just made me realize my closet is in need for a few trusty after-hours pieces. If you guys have recs, I'd love to know! 





It's starting to get real cold in SF, so I've been shopping for a dreamy neutral coat that will go with all my looks this season. The ideal one I'm always keeping an eye out for is sleek in design, flattering on, super warm, and light in weight. Although, a coat is a key Winter essential, I also get that it's an investment piece, so you kind of need to be selective in the fit and its features. From my time browsing styles online, then trying them on in stores, I've come across some of the best deals on beautiful styles with amazing fits. Ahead, I've rounded up the one's I've had my eyes on. A deal this good needs to be shared, but styles and sizes will go quick. Shop them now :)
