My current skincare routine is my J-Beauty routine, which is Japanese skincare. I have been obsessed with skin care since 2009 and J-Beauty was actually my very first skincare regimen. Being into J-Beauty, you would learn to know that Shiseido is the queen of Japanese […]
Two-piece sets are the easiest outfits in the world other than a dress. I actually prefer two-piece sets because it seems like there is more thought put into the outfit than a one-piece dress. Coupled with my Black Chanel Boy Bag, this particular outfit for […]
Black Turtleneck – Pigalle Basketball Court
A black turtleneck is my must-have for the fall and winter season. The same team from my last shoot (read it here) took these photos at the Pigalle Basketball Court in Paris, France. This photo shoot was shot in less than 10 minutes due to the interruption of restrictions with filming and photography. Luckily, we were able to work quickly in the crowded and beautiful Pigalle Basketball Court.
Choihyuksoo’s (the photographer) favorite shoot with me was this black turtleneck outfit at the Pigalle Basketball Court.
Shooting at Pigalle Basketball Court
Since most of Paris, France has an old traditional charm, seeing the modern and vibrant Pigalle Basketball Court was strangely refreshing (not that I got tired of the beautiful old Parisian architecture). This colorful environment was a perfect contrast to the black on black outfit. I loved the bold colors of blue, white, pink, red, yellow, orange, and purple throughout the whole court. The court’s floor had caught my attention as I walked upon it because of its rubber surface. It’s gradient colors matched well with the brilliant walls.
This new Paris landmark is popular not only because of its uniqueness but because of it’s “out of place” vibe. It almost felt like entering the World of Oz when comparing to the rest of Paris.
What I Wore
The black turtleneck I am wearing is an old one that I picked up at a boutique but you can find a ton of similar ones almost anywhere. As for the pants, I ordered them from Revolve years ago. The sunglasses are one of my favorites because it reminds me of John Lennon. Lastly, the white sneakers are by Adidas.
This black turtleneck outfit was honestly not planned. They were meant to be worn after the team and I were done shooting but Choihyuksoo thought it would be best to wear it at the basketball court. He was right.
Blush Pink Dress in Paris, France I usually don’t like pink dresses, but this dress immediately caught my attention when I first saw it on ShopBlueDistrict.com. What caught my attention was the details and cut. This maxi pink lace dress has multiple lace layers with refined […]
Zilea – the Italian Luxury Brand
Recently founded in 2017, Zilea is an impressive Italian luxury brand.
Zilea is an airy line of gowns and dresses that are graceful and worldly are created by using the greatest quality of silk. Zilea’s delicate pieces are made in Como, Italy, where it is known for the Museo Didattico della Seta (Educational Silk Museum). This educational museum traces the history of this city’s silk industry.
To illustrate by the brand itself, “A classic Zilea dress drapes with feather-light delicacy around the body, covering only what needs to be covered … Intricately drawn motifs of exotic birds and flowers are finely inscribed on the delicate silk, evoking traditional Asian attire yet firmly rooted in Italian craftsmanship.”
So, due to its design which is similar to a kimono, this Zilea dress I am wearing is a very distinct piece. This Zilea dress wraps around the body, fitting perfectly on the midriff and accentuating the waist and hips. Because of the premium silk, the feel of this mini dress with long sleeves felt unreal against my skin. It easily flowed against the late summer breeze. And thus, I felt feminine, comfortable and beautiful.
How I Wore It
Considering the intricate designs, I paired this dress with simple white heeled mules. I thought simple shoes would be best to better complement the work of art by Zilea. Similarly, you can also pair this elegant dress with white or blue flats or whichever colored heels you like. Though, I would prefer heels with this dress since it will help accentuate the curves.
Lastly, you can wear this Zilea dress I am wearing casually or somewhere special like a date night, brunch, or reunion. On the day I wore this dress, I spent time with friends including one of my favorite photographers, Ryan Chua. Ryan and I decided to enjoy Santa Monica after a couple of events. It was a fun and memorable day.
All Black with Over the Knee Boots I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is already next week! Time flies too fast when you’re juggling work, family, and friends (I know I’m not the only one!). Although autumn started months ago, California is becoming […]
New York Fashion Week – NYFW Street Style
Hey, Everyone! Its Yuki here and it feels good to be back in the blogging game! Much time has passed since I was able to write for myself. As some of you may know, I had another site before this one, and long story short, I didn’t fully own it. Now, I am extremely proud to say that I built TheYukiBomb.com all by myself (yes, which includes simple coding, design, and everything else that is required to build a site!). I spent long hours building this page by page, code by code. The reason why this site is my baby is that not only did I build it myself, but most importantly, I can share my thoughts, feelings, and passions with the world. I would like to start my first post with Fashion Week.
My First time in New York Fashion Week
Recently, I was honored to be able to attend New York Fashion Week. It was my first time in New York and I loved it! It definitely took some time for me to adjust the busy New York City life, but it was such a pleasure to be in a new city. I was able to attend multiple shows for Fashion Week such as Katie Gallagher, Timo Weiland, John Paul Ataker, Cindy Monteiro, and so much more. Fashion Week is such a frenzy! It was especially amazing to see all the attendees dressed to the nines, which gives me so much more inspiration with playing with my wardrobe. New York Fashion Week was amazing, and I am unquestionably coming back again.
For Fashion Week, I noticeably changed my wardrobe a bit. In this look, I am wearing a white fringe blouse by Never Fully Dressed, and leather pants by White Fox Boutique. My purse is from Michael Kors (which can carry more than it seems). My black boots are an old pair from Zara, but they are extremely comfortable which is a must for the streets of New York. This outfit is one of my absolute favorites and received many compliments for it from Fashion Week attendees. My favorite part about this white elegant top is how it flows as I walk or even turn. Thanks for reading and please keep in touch for the next post! <3
