Toronto was blessed with a sunny, warm day today. There were no reason for me to stay home and be a hermit, so I strolled with my sister in the long-awaited sun. What I initially wanted to do was a head to toe neutral outfit, which I haven’t really seen often. But then again, that can wait until the summer, because where I live, it’s not completely Spring yet, so the -1 degrees windchill is still here with us.
I’ve been blaming school for my laziness, I admit. It’s because spring isn’t officially here yet, and it’s not really winter… so I’ve decided to blame it on the weather. There’s no sun, there’s still -5 degree windchill, and I’m in desperate need for some warmth. I still can’t put away all my coats and boots, unfortunately… Hopefully spring will be here soon!!
Who wouldn’t wanna be this girl?! Killer body, sweet smile, amazing designer cuzzie, and above everything, a phenomenal fashion sense. The first time I saw Lily Kwong was in one of the editions of Vogue where it featured the best dressed and most influential fashion women along with Michelle Obama. Then I saw her in Candice Lake’s NYFW street styles, and then with Altuzarra in one of the photoshoots. She has an impeccable style and has an aura around her that no one else can duplicate. I’m a huge fan of Altuzarra as well, and she always pulls it off perfectly, that it makes me fall in love with his work even more as well.
Why a style icon?
What I love the most about Lily Kwong is that she isn’t afraid of patterns. Because of her sleek hair and fair complexion, I think the patterns come alive even better. It’s not that these printed patterns are overloaded on her outfit. The silhouettes are subtle, yet statement-making. She’s like a white piece of paper, and you could give her anything, she could pull it off. That’s why she’s so inspirational ♥
