My 12 favorite looks from the 2016 Met Gala exude not only sheer fashion genius but also so brilliantly portray this year’s theme: “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.” From sleek cut-outs paralleling technological minimalism to shimmery metallics echoing the “Silicon” in Silicon Valley, these red carpet dresses are totally machine couture. PicMonkey Collage

After the surprising March snowfall yesterday, I was so happy to wake up to the sunniest morning I’ve had in months. It looks like the good weather will keep up for the entire weekend (knock on wood) so I’ll be shooting outfit photos, getting brunch with my girlfriends, and exploring West Village. I can’t wait to try out the food at this place and get some great pictures on the blog and on my Instagram. Hope you guys have an equally bright and warm weekend!

I discovered Klarra, a Singaporean designer, from a fellow Instagrammer. Just goes to show that little app is truly inspiring and far-reaching. Wouldn’t you love to wear one of these outfits when the weather warms up? It’s currently blizzarding outside so that might be a while from now, but I still bought 5 things from Klarra yesterday in case they get sold out before spring. Never want to take any chances when it comes to beautiful clothes, am I right or am I right?

My favorite pieces have been:
1. Wide leg pants, which seem to be trending all over Fashion Weeks
2. Pastel culottes– perfect alternative to the colorful sundress
3. A minimalist sweatshirt dress
4. A similarly chic sweatshirt
6. Delicate yet sexy lace bralette

I see white and gold. I tried a dozen times on a desktop computer, a laptop, my phone, Dan’s iPad, you name it…I will never see black and blue. I even almost toppled over my chair just now moving my head in various directions in a final attempt to see what half the internet is talking about. Apparently, this phenomenon has to do with whether you perceive the dress in a shadow (gold and white) or in bright light (black and blue). Read more here.

P.S. The amazon reviews for the dress, which is apparently black and blue although I still refuse to believe it, are hilarious:
