MAGIC Marketplace in Las Vegas

Last week I had the chance to visit Las Vegas and attend MAGIC. If you haven’t heard of MAGIC before, it is the world’s largest fashion marketplace (so large that MAGIC has to take up two convention centers)! It was my second time attending it, and I’ve forgotten how overwhelming it can be going through rows and rows of fashion brands all day long. These photos are from the second day at Project and Magic. I had a blast hanging out with my friends Judy Elle and Trisha. I ran into some blogger friends like Lisa Linh, Linh Nguyen, Jill of Little Black Boots, and Lo Caballero.  Magic Marketweek Las Vegas Convention Center-3681Magic Marketweek Las Vegas Convention Center-3599 Magic Marketweek Las Vegas Convention Center-3611  Magic Marketweek Las Vegas Convention Center-3697 Magic Marketweek Las Vegas Convention Center-3709 Magic Marketweek Las Vegas Convention Center-3757

Last but not least, I met the talented designer behind EIS Los Angeles, Ayumi, and her partner-in-crime Monica. Be sure to check them out!Magic Marketweek Las Vegas Convention Center-3748

I was ecstatic to come home to these sweet treats from Macaron Cafe! These were very delicious and I encourage you guys to check them out whenever you’re craving macarons! The flavors were amazing: peanut butter + jelly, chocolate + raspberry, vanilla, dark chocolate, coconut, and raspberry. So good!

TopShelf Style | Weekend Vibes

Christina of TopShelf Style asked me to do a collaboration with her for TopShelf Style. We finally made it happen this past weekend. Our theme was very much inspired by Outside Lands Music Festival. The looks totally embraced the weekend vibe. It was really fun shooting with models Christa and Ellen. Shooting for a fashion boutique/retailer totally reminded me of my days at Charlotte Russe and Betabrand. Hope you enjoyed the shots! Be sure to check out TopShelf Style! Oh and did I mention that we ran into Glee actress Dianna Agron at Tacolicious right after the shoot? See photo at the end of the post!

Eunice Kim | Being Eunique

You know it’s a good photoshoot when you have way too many good photos and can’t decide which ones to post. And you also know it’s a good photoshoot when you connect so well with your subject. In this case, the subject being Eunice Kim. I shot with her a couple of months ago in SF during the winter. It was nice to be reunited with her in warmer weather. It was nice to shoot again with someone that is so comfortable in front of the camera, and a personal style that I really enjoy shooting as well. I also have yet to visit her place and play with her cats Mr. Loki and Chloe. You’ll definitely see more collaborations with her. Check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: You Can’t Sit With Us. Check out this Fyuse I took of her: Click Here.

Bryn Newman | Outside Lands Style

I was enjoying a nice warm summer day in SF and then the fog and cold breeze rolled in. You know what that means: Outside Lands is coming. I’ve been going to OSL for the past three years now, and they all have been historically cold. I actually dislike the cold weather during Outside Lands, since everyone bundles up and it’s difficult to shoot streetstyle that way. Compared to Coachella where everyone shows off their outfit in the desert heat, SF’s weather will make you bundle up in a blanket or heavy jacket, which renders your outfit hidden from the public eye. Regardless the music is always amazing. I sadly won’t be going this year since OSL doesn’t excite me as much as a streetstyle photographer, but I know a lot of my friends will have a blast.

If you’re looking for an outfit inspiration for this year’s OSL, be sure to check out Bryn Newman’s blog post: Outside Lands Festival Style Tips.
