As we transition into the fall weather, I’m glad that I can finally restyle my summer pieces by adding layers. As the temperature drops, I love transitioning into a neutral color palette. I decided to keep the base color of my outfit black so the color white could stand out and make the shoes and vest pop.
I was recently sponsored by Madora, it’s an online shopping app from San Franciso that is geared towards women to shop in a personalized store of shoes and bags. I decided to pick out a pair of heels that had a more clean, contemporary feel to it. The shopping experience for me was easy because I knew what style I was looking for. They have quite a large selection but they can pick out items to specifically match you, your life, and your style. They have a large variety from vintage inspired shoes to basic must-haves to glitzier night-out heels. Madora also does a really great job with responding to emails and keeping you updated about your package. I absolutely love my heels. I’m really into bold pieces and I like how the black and white straps a unique touch. Personally, I don’t wear open-toed heels a lot but these were so comfortable. I love how the heels are easy to walk in because its chunkier, shorter, shape and the ankle strap is my favorite part. I hope you like the way I style the heels! I decided to play around with the contemporary vibe so I feel like different cuts and lengths of clothing helps achieve a more minimal look, but I mainly made sure that my top and dress pants were more fitted.

Sorry for the lack of blog posts. I’ve been super busy tanning in this summer heat and hanging out with my amazing best friends. We love to explore different parts of Dallas and we found this adorable french-inspired bakery. Check out Bisous Bisous Patisserie as well as their amazing Instagram showcasing all of their mouth-watering pastries and colorful macarons! The outdoor seating area is my absolute favorite; I’ve definitely found my mini Paris-inspired spot right here in Dallas.
I absolutely loved this light grey dress although I wasn’t sure how it would look before I tried it on. I love how it’s a form-fitting dress but the lace keeps it looking classic and simple which is perfect to wear to brunch, weddings, and other summery formal events! Tip: For classy Spring/summer events, pastels are great. Keep the tones muted. If you like the sophisticated high-necklines, this dress would be perfect. I also love this one because the bottom of the dress has a scalloped lace edge. And if you’re stepping out of your color comfort zone and looking for something a little sexier, check this dress out, it’s only $20!!
Hello lovelies 🙂 I can’t believe school has already started. But while the warm summer season lasts, I’ll take advantage of it. I love wearing bright colors in the summer and I love how bold they look in pictures. I noticed my color palette seemed very cotton-candy inspired and Barbie-doll like. I tried to keep the overall look girly so I paired huge sparkly accessories with my outfit. I also found a shirt with a frilly lave detail and tucked it into an A-line flared skirt. I hope you love the look!
I hope you all are having a great summer so far! I decided to write a little blog post about my experience with Rocksbox! They found my Instagram page and contacted me to become an Influencer 🙂 Check out their page: Rocksbox the website is a premiere destination to borrow designer jewelry before you choose to buy the pieces. Different designer brands include Kendra Scott, Loren Hope, etc. AND you can use the code: sydnguyenxoxo during checkout to get a whole month of FREE Rocksbox!!!! All of the pieces are absolutely stunning, I keep adding pieces to my online wishlist. They send 3 jewelry pieces in your box at a time and each box is special because a stylist chooses pieces to match your personal style! Check out their Instagram right here to get inspired by all of the beautiful looks.
For this specific look, I wanted to keep the color palette muted but maintain a fresh, summery look. My first Rocksbox included very minimalistic gold jewelry pieces like a dainty gold chain necklace, a thin jeweled ring, and these spiked studded earrings which were my absolute favorite! You probably also noticed something different about my hair, I decided to lighten it for the summer! I had my hair recently bayalaged modeling for Pravana, so the color of my hair is a lot more vibrant which went perfect with the white and gold colors! I started off with a white summery dress so the necklace could be seen on top of it. Then I paired the look with white and brown espadrilles, a brown purse, and sunglasses. The over look was very simple but accessories really are a girl’s best friend; the main focus was to highlight the beautiful jewelry and keep the overall look simple. Take a look at my outfit pictures below! Also, don’t forget to use the code at checkout below to get a whole month of free Rocksbox!

Hello lovelies! I hope you are all doing well! I’m sorry I haven’t been posting as much, exam week has been quite stressful but I’m glad that I found some time to start blogging again!
I’m in love with this outfit, especially the skirt. My best friend Dania Badawi let me borrow her Valentine’s Day outfit for this shoot! She has such a classic, vintage style and she’s inspired by pastels and the 1950s (Check out her amazing Instagram!) I love how she styled this look, it’s so chic and simple. The skirt is from ChicWish and they have the most absolutely STUNNING skirts. I’ve seen so many bloggers posts pictures in their beautiful mid-calf length skirts and I’m in love with each and every one. I’m definitely going to invest in some of my own but there’s just too many cute options!
My style is always changing but I love the simple black-and-white color palette. It’s so chic and it really suits the city-lifestyle and fashion. I wanted to capture the beauty of Dallas’s iconic white bridge: The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge so I decided to stick with a “city chic” theme. I also had the chance to work with Kaido/Paul Asyn! Check out more of his work from the links below!
One of my best friends set up the photoshoot date and we all met up and found the bridge in the middle of Dallas. It was really windy that day haha so it was hard to get photos without my hair flying crazy everywhere. I’m experimenting new styles everyday and exploring more and more of Dallas and it’s nice to be able to enjoy everything with all of my friends!
I started off with the basics: blue jeans and a white shirt. I love how city style is mixed with a bit of street-style edge so I wore ripped jeans and paired it with pointy black heels. These heels are my new obsession, I love the interested cut and how the sharp design pulls the whole look together. My white shirt was also a flowy, blouse-like long sleeve with a second layer on top. My favorite piece from this outfit is the black cape blazer. I absolutely loooovee it! It’s such a unique piece and it was a gift from the designers at Tinsley Radix (from their boutique: Chantilly), where I formerly interned! I topped off the look with some dainty jewelry: pearl ring, MK rosegold watch, and a pair of sunglasses.
*** I’m also trying a new format: Check out the slideshow below! I hope you like it 🙂
Happy late Valentine’s Day everyone! I’ve been so busy lately and it’s been awhile since I’ve written a blog post so I’m so glad that I had time to get around to it now! I have a few outfits from a Valentine’s Day shoot that I did with my girlfriends but I decided to post about this little red number first. I absolutely looovee the month of February, even though I didn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, (my sisters and I decided to throw a little “Anti-Valentine’s Day” party with pizza and a bunch of food haha cheers to everyone who’s single) I love seeing all of the girly, pretty pink and red hearts everywhere…and the best part is the chocolates of course! I hope you all had a fantastic Valentine’s Day whether you decided to spend it with someone special, with family, friends, or even alone watching a movie at home.
Red. Red. Red. This is absolutely THE color for something bold and daring for Valentine’s Day. The slit of my gown is in the front which is a unique touch and I love how the cut-outs and low-v cut in the front has a sheer, red mesh fabric. I decided to pair the look with neutral colored heels and a pair of sparkly earrings. I didn’t really have time to curl my hair haha so sorry for the messy bed-head look! I also had a bouquet of chocolate covered strawberries (from Cocoandre Chocolatier) for this shoot and they were gorgeous and they’re my absolute FAVORITE dessert 🙂 I hope you love this look!
Sorry I haven’t been posting as much lately. But I’m glad that I’m finally getting to blog about my last outfit from my trip to New York! This is probably one of my favorites since I’m in love with fur vests and thigh-high boots. We spent our last full day hanging out around the Upper East Side, Lauderee, and Central Park. Central Park is pure beauty, I can see why it’s such an iconic place to go to in New York. The trees and crisp autumn air made everything even more breathtaking. I loved all the warm tones between golden hues and burnt oranges. I hope you love this look!
New York instantly grew on me, I’m still mesmerized by it’s beauty and I’m craving some gyro and amazing street food..Maybe going back in the Spring doesn’t sound like such a bad idea…Well we spent our third day doing some sightseeing; across Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, and we went to meet up with a friend for dinner at a restaurant called “Heart of India” and their pistachio ice-cream is absolutely delicious! Check out some of my pictures from the trip below!
Packing was lot easier since I mainly focused on the tops I was wearing instead of a head-to-toe outfit. I loved the Burberry-inspired print on this scarf and I like how it doubles up as a blank and cardigan. To stay extra warm, I wore a turtleneck as my main top underneath the cardigan. I have been addicted to wearing poncho-inspired items this season to the point where I wear them every day to class since they’re so comfortable and easy to throw on over a plain shirt. I wanted to keep the color palette simple so I stuck with khaki and cream shades and wore brown accessories like my sunglasses and purse.
Sorry if I haven’t been blogging about my New York trip everyone! There’s so many details that I want to write about but I’ve also been so busy. New York is such a beautiful, iconic city. The lifestyle there is so colorful, creative, and constantly evolving everyday. We spent the second day in NY visiting many of the iconic sites throughout the city such as Battery Park, Madison Square Garden, Washington Square Park, The Statue of Liberty, etc so I’m sharing some of my pictures with you! The day went by so fast since we mainly spent time walking everywhere around town.
I wanted to have one, elegant and classy look for New York so I was inspired by vintage Old Hollywood looks. I decided to dress simple by wearing all black: a black long sleeve, skinny jeans, and shoes. I highly recommend wearing leggings underneath jeans so you have an extra layer of warmth if you have to walk a lot in the cold weather. I opted for a cape coat with leopard fur accents. I love the the texture of the fur and it kept me warm and cozy throughout the day without weighing me down. I loved how it was a poncho/cape coat rather than a regular coat because it was loose and easy to move my arms around. I decided to loosely curl my hair (which ended up getting messed up by the wind..) and pair my look with red, crimson lipstick and my favorite diamond earrings. I also liked the idea of wearing leather gloves so I brought these dark chocolate brown elbow-length gloves that paired perfectly with fur coat. I love how this look was so quick and easy to get ready and I felt so glamorous.
