Taiwan Diary: I Made It To Taichung!

I had the privilege to be the maid of honour for a wedding in Taiwan... and wouldn't pass up the opportunity to travel the country.  I've always wanted to travel; in fact, my dream job growing up was to become a flight attendant. :)

I knew the weather would be equivalent to summer in Vancouver, so I mainly packed summer/spring clothes.  

This is what I changed into as soon as I arrived in Taichung, Taiwan....



We went straight to the mall at Taichung city to do a little shopping.... :)



Outfit Details:

Shoes, jean jacket & skirt from Zara
T-shirt from Giordano







Then... we ended to Feng Yuen night market to try out some different foods.  Yum! food is awesome and couldn't believe how massive the night market was.  


Here are my top picks of night market foods:

Plaid Obsessed


Yes, I finally fixed my sleeping pattern; it took about a week.  I was out of the country for 2 weeks to fulfill my duties as the maid of honour for a destination wedding in Taiwan (photos will be up soon).  :)  It was an awesome experience to be able to see such intricate and beautifully made temples, tried great food at a few massive night markets (food coma all the way! lol) & shopping, of course! lol.

Anyway, I've been wanting to share this outfit for the longest time; I finally got a chance to post them.  Enjoy!

I Got Me A "Boyfriend" Jeans!

Sorry for the mini hiatus... been raining like crazy these past days in Vancouver so my photographer, Michael and I had to find an indoor space for a photoshoot.  Luckily, I got to use my mom's empty (temporarily) place for a couple of hours.  I gotta say, I like the convenience indoor shoot has to offer.  Keeping warm is definitely not a problem, you're not fighting with the sunshine (shadows, glares...not good for photos!).

I'm really happy with how my pictures turned out.  I've been into the grudge look lately; so free and basic.... yet I love combining two contrasting styles... for this, I paired my boyfriend jeans (yes! Scored! been looking for a pair that actually fits me! lol) with a T-shirt from La Notte from Aritzia and of course my beanie from Aritzia completes the whole grudge look.

Enjoy your week ahead everyone!  take it easy!







Outfit Details:

T-shirt, beanie & blazer from Aritzia

Fall Trend Alert: Leather

Leather is one of the biggest fall fashion trend alongside plaid.  It has been one of my favourite pieces to wear; the look gives off that tough girl vibe.  I love to combine my style with edgy and feminine pieces.  I styled my leather mini dress overall with a floral cropped top and a pair of clogs heels.  

This photo shoot has to be the MOST coldest shoots I ever did.  Definitely underestimated the cold weather night.  I know what everyone is thinking... summer clothes in Vancouver during late fall season?!  Yes, call me crazy! LOL  And yes, I ended up freezing my bum off.  Never Again!  But on the bright side, I am satisfied with how my night shots turned out.  :)













Outfit Details: 

Leather Overall Dress, Cotton Candy from 8th & Main
Necklace from Saks Fifth Avenue
Chambray from Zara
Beanie from Zara Accessories
Heels from Promod
