Sailor Moon

This is one of my most favorite dress that I've owned, yet I haven't really had the opportunity to wear it. This week was the last week of my internship with the Asian American Institute's Impact Fellows Program. For memories, I decided to dress up on the last day to leave a lasting impression of myself. Dear fellows, I will miss our good times. I've learned so much from all of you and I've finally discovered myself and my potential thanks to your nurturing ways. Please remember me as not only 'Sunnay Honnay', but also the Ai Nhu with dreams and curiosity. I know that you all will support me in my path, and please don't hesitate to look for me if you need a helping hand.

In Full Bloom

I had a Stylespirations moment yesterday. Kelly and I got off of work early because of legislative visit. We planned on going out to Tank Noodles, so we stopped by Kelly's house for her to change. I came in my purple t-shirt and jean shorts from Forever 21. We hung out a little bit until I noticed this wonderful skirt in Kelly's closet. It was a gift for her 19th birthday in April and she still hasn't worn it. Immediately, I was attracted to it right away and tried it on. I ended up throwing on her gold gladiators and suddenly there was an impromptu photoshoot in her room. Although it wasn't intentional at all, it made me happy to realize that inspiration is always around, it's just up to us to realize it, take it, and make it ours.

Sail Away

Happy July 4th everyone! I hope you all enjoy a great celebration with your family today. I know I'm still on food coma from the damage we've done.

The lighting of these pictures bother me so much, but it was really gloomy outside so I had to make do with taking pictures in my office. This dress is one of my favorite buys this summer so far. Initially, I thought it was pretty ugly, but I decided to try it on anyways for fun. It turned out to be a surprising buy because of my first impression and I usually never buy dresses over $20. I simply fell in love with it. It's such a simple yet playful dress from a local Chicago boutique on Clark called Presence. With the strong summer heat in the hair, it's fun to play with the nautical theme to cool down in a unique way.
