I’m so honored to be inside ELLE China‘s new SuperELLE Winter 2017 issue, shot by the incredible Zexi Qi, and written by Emily Yao. Talk about a DREAM TEAM. Pink couch? Check. Fair isle sweater? Check. I snuggled up for my closeup in this adorable store in the Lower East Side: Coming Soon Furniture. A perfect location for me…a quirky mix of fashion, home, and lifestyle. This fall, I’m all about nubby, festive knits and exaggerated fits like the cropped jacket and flared sleeve. I absolutely love ELLE China’s eclectic approach to fashion. Chic, vibrant, and always fun. There’s a realness in every single image. This SuperELLE issue celebrates a diverse group of fashion’s coolest upcoming talent around the globe. It’s time you get your hands on an issue! SUPER, indeed.

What a sweet way to end 2015, and begin 2016! This year has been BEYOND amazing, and there are so many amazing adventures to come this new year that I can’t wait to tell you about. Thank you ELLE China for such an amazing write-up, and photoshoot. IT-GIRL?! I’ll take it! Being half Chinese, it’s been amazing connecting with my heritage and with my readers on the other side of the world. This story was all about “magpie” style, aka taking a cue from your grandmother’s closet which I’m a total sucker for. Magpie being that beautiful bird that was seen stitched to dresses all over the Gucci runway. Taking that aesthetic and combining it with my own touch of rock n’ roll. You know I love a good vintage inspired print and old school embellishments. We played with a lot of Gucci for this shoot, along with Tory Burch, Loewe, and Bottega Veneta. Mixed with my winter essentials: furry beanies, nordic coats, and killer lace-up shoes. Eclectic, granny approved, but a whole lot more youthful and fun.
