Oriental Mix

asian Oriental Mix

Living here in Toronto, sometimes I get so wrapped in US Weekly, YBF and theSuperficial that I forget I am Chinese! My mom is from futuristic and affluent island Hong Kong (hello fashion capital!) and my dad is from the arts and culture hub of Shanghai (hello Vegas of China). There is no denying that the influences of Hollywood and BET shape fashion trends and define the street style here in Toronto – but there is a whole entire nation pushing fashion forward – Asia! I found some famous Japanese pop stars by a quick Google search and realize that supercute + sexy = lethal! I am lucky because I am an Asian girl – besides having pin straight hair that just grows and grows and loves being dyed, permed, styled AND being smooth as a peach without much thought – I AM PLAIN. Asian girls have very plain features, innocent looks and therefore very versatile – Our looks that can be transformed by any hair, makeup, clothing, lighting and of course attitude. I would say my style is heavily influenced by Japanese street fashion, hiphop honeys and my imagination.

JJ Magazine is something I treat myself to once in a while – It is the fashion Bible of Japan, like Vogue on estacsy. It is about $33 and is an eternal lookbook – from outrageous to classy, to era inspired, to music inspired, to the ‘office-lady’ look to harajuku girls… If you want to know what’s gonna be popping in Summer 2011, just look at last months JJ magazine.

I always go back to my cultural roots to maximize my style and wardrobe. What influences your style?

Pretty much flawless

Desktop6 Pretty much flawless

I have 2 personalities, glossyvonne and yvonne. One is blonde and fun and the other is a brunette and kinda studious. icon smile Pretty much flawless I am yvonne for 2009 until further notice. Biked to Sephora today on Bloor and wanted to find a nice matte flawless foundation to match my new hue, and after playing around for hours, I was debating the new multishade makeupforever liquid foundation or the smashbox high def one. Then the Laura Geller phenomenal foundation one caught my eye! Cool bottle that swivels shut and keeps the foundation fresh, a nice pump system that works well for me – so it’s amazing! Pretty, sheer-medium coverage and minimal transfer. “Virtually weightless formula blends beautifully to perfect your complexion. Create a flawless canvas and keep it all day.” Laura Geller is famous for it’s brow marker and she believes beauty is every woman’s birthright.  Amen to that! I will let you know how it compares to my all time favourite maybelline dream matte mousse. Any good recommendations?

poster7 The SpiritI really like going to watch movies with bad reviews – probably because I laugh at parts that nobody else do… let’s see what this ones all about!

Loved it, knew i would – eff rotten tomato reviews, i should start my own ketchup reviews haha.. anyway… my favourite line was ‘why does it smell so dental’!
Love the over the top dialogue, creative and artistic scenes, the red knife, the femme fatale roles and the eye shadow on Samuel L Jackson
