Work It

I sneaked in a few snapshots of my daily work attire in the wee hours before I headed out to meetings last month on my business trip to Shanghai and Beijing. My number one motto is pack light! The worst part about traveling is having to lug around what sometimes feels like a steel anchor. The worst-worst part about traveling is having to lug around two steel anchors and forgeting one in the trunk of a taxi. Lesson learned. So in the name of packing light, I am proud to commit what is considered a fashion faux pas--wearing the same pieces out consecutively day after day.

Outfit 1: Anthropologie shirt, Esprit tweed skirt (from 6 years ago!), vintage leather belt, Target black tights, Ri2K bag, Barbara Bui boots

Outfit2: Raf Simons X Fred Perry men's sweater, black pashmina scarf, white Uniqlo Heattech shirt, Esprit tweed skirt, vintage leather belt, Target maroon tights, Ri2K bag, Barbara Bui boots

Outfit 3: Alexander McQueen trench, birthday suit underneath! (jk same top, skirt, etc as above), makeup: Lunasol bronze liquid eyeliner, Shiseido Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus mascara, Paul & Joe face primer (which I use as foundation because it is tinted and light), Korres bronzer, Vincent Longo blush, Korres plum lip butter 

Outfit 4: Uniqlo vest, Uniqlo Heattech shirt, vintage long tweed skirt, vintage leather belt, Target black tights, Ri2K bag, Barbara Bui boots


  1. It's not a fashion faux pas! It's smart traveling and you looked chic!

  2. I don't think it's a fashion faux pas either. When I put together an outfit that I love, I wear it for 2-3 days straight. Even le hubs has gotten used to it and doesn't think it's weird anymore.

  3. Love your business style!
