Who is Joanne Kim?

Hello, my name is Joanne Kim. I’m currently a college student majoring in Liberal Studies, hoping to become an Elementary teacher.

How do you describe your stye? I don’t really have a specific style. I love to mix and match my clothes for fun and just experience with all different kinds of clothes, shoes, & accessories. One day, I’ll dress casual and then next day, I’ll dress formal, and so on. It really depends on my mood actually :) If I feel lazy, I’ll go out in a plain T-shirt & sweats!

Who are/is your style inspiration? Honestly, everyone is an inspiration to me. I’ve never actually sat down and “studied” fashion from a book or a magazine. If I see someone wearing a cute outfit, I’ll keep that in mind and think how I can further experience with it. Fashion is always changing and it’s amazing how much you can learn from each other. I hope that I’m an inspiration to other girls as well :)

image

Where do you usually shop? My favorite stores are definitely Forever 21, H&M, Cotton On, & Karmaloop.com. But if I see something cute in any random store, I’ll buy it!

Any message for other fashion lovers out there? Even if you don’t think you have a great style, other people might think otherwise.. You probably just never realized it! I don’t think you need to wear the latest trends & expensive brands to be fashionable. Just express yourself by wearing what you want and feel comfortable in. I believe everyone is capable of becoming fashionistas!


Lookbook Spy: Stephanie Huang

image

To grace the fourth spot for the month of August on my little blog segment called Lookbook Spy is the young and pretty fashionista Stephanie Huang. With a model-like height like hers, you wouldn’t guess she’s only 17 turning 18 in a little more than a month. Currently living in Shanghai, China, she’s all set to move to California for college. I’m guessing Cali wouldn’t be so hard for her since she was born and raised in the United States. :)

image

When asked to describe her style, My style is eclectic and draws influences from various places. I enjoy dressing differently everyday and see it as a way to express myself and the things that I am currently infatuated with.”

How do you describe your style? Dreamy, ethereal, vintage (’70s inspired), and very girly

Who are/is your style inspiration? Actually I get most of my style inspiration from old photos of my parents from the early 70s

image


Where do you usually shop? I work at American Apparel, so I end up with a lot of clothes from there because they do a lot of free giveaways and have a great employee discount. Other than that, I usually go to vintage or thrift stores in Brooklyn. Though, I also like Urban Outfitters, Topshop, and Zara when I can afford it.

Any message for other fashion lovers out there? Be Yourself! Your style should reflect who you are on the inside.
LookBook Spy: Elle Yamada

image

It’s been a while since I made an entry for my blog segment called LookBook Spy. But after a little while, I finally got into the mood and I’m so excited to share to you my next feature.

image

At first look, you’d think you’re looking into an actress’ blog. But as far as I know, Elle Yamada is more than just your ordinary 22 year old Indonesian girl with a pretty face. With big dreams at hand, she is not afraid to work hard to get what she wants in life.

image

Being a free-spirited person who believes laughing is the best calorie burner, her personality reflects her style and fashion sense—fun and colorful. Surely, you won’t catch her wearing a head-to-toe ensemble in just one color! Her blog post can testify to that. <3 She prefers to keep it simple too so she accessorize less.

image

And her daily get-up? "A loose t-shirt and a pair of jeans shorts! Ah, I also love sweats!" she writes.

image


Even her online shop named GOWIGASA (which I thought was some sort of Indonesian word, good thing I didn’t google it up) sells dainty, colorful, stylish pieces which you can see in most of her outfit posts. GOWIGASA stands for Good Will Garage Sale. The history of their shop?

"GOWIGASA (GOod WIll GArage SAle) was first released on January 2010, so it’s almost 2 years now! :) At first we only sold our own clothes for garage sale (second handed items), and the results were amazing that we decided to continue this small business. I sincerely think that you can do anything with great results when you do it with your heart."


When I asked her about her sister, Jess, I envied how super, well, not just super but super duper close they are to each other. They share almost about everything—clothes, shoes, bed, password, even toothbrush.

image

"We always ask each other’s opinions on simple to important decisions and ideas about life. We also think alike, sometimes it seems like we can read each other’s minds! But we do fight over small things sometimes, not for a long time though. Well to sum up, she is my greatest gift from God. :)"

image

Okay, I could rant about my new found fashioninspiration Elle for all I want but I will need to have a whole new blog for that, put up a fan site perhaps, wtf! haha! But for now, catch more of her HERE :)

Hello! Okay, where do I start? Well, when I was younger, I have always wanted to be a writer. Believe me when I say I attempted to write novels but ended up not finishing any.I got the chance to be a literary editor too but that was way back in senior year. I wrote short stories and poems like it was my favorite hobby of all time.

But that’s all gone now because of college :( Anyway, instead of totally erasing writing in my life, I’ve decided to make this blog segment called LookBook Spy where I can pretend I’m some kind of a fashion writer writing a feature about different fashionistas all over the world. And my source? None other than the biggest fashion influence in my life, Lookbook dot nu! So watch out tomorrow for my first feature! I know you’ll love her!
