How ridiculously bulky is this sweater, I love it. It feels like ages ago that I did this shoot, probably because I just got back from a two-week vacation in China and Thailand. I finally had an excuse to play around with my DLSR, and while I'm still learning, I think this is the start of an amateur photography addiction.

Also, exciting news: I just penned a new article for The Bold Italic on reverse culture shock (ironically on the eve of my first trip back to China!). Take a look and let me know what you think :-)

Going Grunge

It’s the age-old dilemma: I’m constantly torn between wanting to look ultra minimalist, or like a ‘90s Nirvana baby. Although clean and sleek lines usually win out, occasionally I break up the monotony with some plaid (my favorite shirt has multiple holes in it, but I continue to wear it), shredded denim and vintage band tees (usually procured from my favorite thrift stores in SF, which include but are not limited to: Painted Bird, Re Love, Afterlife and Wasteland – yes, we're pretty spoiled for options here).

On another note, I'm leaving for my trip to China TOMORROW. Expect a huge recap post on the blog upon my return, but in the meantime, follow along on my Instagram @tiffwang_ and Snapchat @tiff-wang.

Comfortable in Culottes

Why oh why has it taken me so long to get into culottes? They’re so deliciously comfortable, but more importantly, also work-appropriate.

By the way, I'm also sporting my brand-new Coach sneakers. I'm very excited to be partnering with them over the next few months – look out for a post devoted to just to some of their pretty goodies soon!

I’ve been living in these Aritzia leather leggings for the last several weeks. Somehow they’re superior to every other pair I’ve ever owned – sleek and tight, yet comfortable and slimming. Also, they’re super shiny which has a cool effect in photos.

This is my first Aritzia purchase and will most definitely not be my last.

Oh, and also, you might have noticed I’ve been making more of an effort to wear heels recently. I actually do get dressed up once in awhile – it just mostly happens at night when lighting isn’t optimal. But I plan to get dolled up more in the daytime for 2016 ;-)
