My First Experience @ YES STYLE

1 Comment »

Yes Style is a store that is located in San Francisco, that specializes in selling clothing/accessories from Korea, Japan, China, and other Asian countries.

First off Yes Style has a store location of the website known as yesstyle.com. They only have one Yes Style store at the moment, which is the one located in San Francisco.

I went to San Francisco on Saturday, mainly to celebrate my birthday which I was unable to do during the weekday. I decided to go to Yes Style that day since I have been dying to visit that store for a very long time. I have heard from a friend as well as online sources that the store was small and selections were limited. With those thoughts in mind, I kept on delaying my visit to Yes Style. I have also read the prices for Yes Style was extremely high and I can't afford very high price items.

As I arrived at the store, I realize many were right the store was small. So, I wasn't expecting much. The store was organize and clean which is always a plus. It was divided one side for girls one side for guys. Immediately I went and looked through the clothes and I was impress. I wish they had more selections, but I was quite impress with what they have. Prices were quite reasonable, around the same price as H&M. It seems almost everything goes on sale.

I ended up only getting two items, which two of my friends decided to actually buy for me as gifts for my birthday. (THANK YOU GUYS!! <3) The style of the clothes remind me of VIVI Fashion magazine. I am not really a big fan of Japanese fashion, but for some reason these style just scream them out. I really like them though and I am very glad I now have them in my closet.

I would like to add they also sell accessories (belts, bags, backpacks), headphones (the mix kind), and even posters of your favorite korean group!

Overall, I really recommend the store, it seems a lot more affordable than the website. If you are really trying to find a place online to shop for Asian style clothing, I suggest a different website, since I find Yesstyle.com over price. However, the store itself I find more affordable.

Outfit of the Day 09/04/10

3 Comments »

I haven't updated my blog is quite a long time, so I decided to post up an outfit of the day today. Sorry, it was from yesterday, i forgot to post it up yesterday and was busy with a bunch of work.



My outfit was a lace long sleeve top with a cream chiffon skirt. I like how it has a thick black band around it giving the outfit a bit more depth in color. As for shoes I wore my white flats since I would be at school I didn't want to wear heels or anything of that sorts there.

Top - Target
Skirt - Forever 21

레인보우 (Rainbow) - A MV Inspired Make up Tutorial

2 Comments »




Another KPOP inspired look for you! I was inspired by Hyun Young of girl group Rainbow. This look was from their music video named "A", which by the way is an addicting song (way better than Gossip Girl). This looks calls for tons of EYELINER! It's simple to do, but takes time.

This is an inspired look, so of course it doesn't look exactly the same. My eye shape is different from Hyun Young so the look won't look exactly the same as it does on her. However, I hope you will enjoy my tutorial anyways and find it helpful to achieve this fun and dramatic look.



Products Used:
Two Face Shadow Insurance
Loreal Linear Intense Liquid Eyeliner
88 Palette (Matte Black)
NYX Glitter Cream Eyeshadows in 01: Paradise
NYC Blushable Cream Stick in Plaza Pink
Mac Lipstick in Cherish
Revlon Lipgloss in Peach Petal

Small Make Up Haul

3 Comments »

Yesterday, I went shopping with my mother to Wal-Mart. Usually Wal-Mart doesn't always carry the make up I want. But, I was surprise to see the Revlon Spring & Summer Collection items there! I was looking for them and they were only available at drug stores. So, I was very excited and since they were cheaper than the drug stores I had to get some more products from that collection. I bought two nail polishes (Minted & Lilac Pastelle) and another lip gloss (Coral Reef) from the collection. I absolutely love them. Currently, I am wearing the Lilac Pastelle nail polish and I just love the color, it is a perfect pastel lilac color (just like its name). The Coral Reef lipgloss is a gorgeous color, I am not use to it since I prefer to wear pinks. But, I think I will be wearing this color for awhile. The consistency is not sticky and it is quite pigmented.

Along side the Revlon products, I ended up giving into the NYC Blushable Creme Stick, which is a cream blush product. The color I bought was in 644U: Plaza Pink and it cost around $3.00. My thoughts about it?...I love it! The color is a nice flush and very easy to blend. I haven't worn it out since I was just testing it out, so I do not know how long it last on the skin, but I will let you guys know. :D

Summer, an update on life.

2 Comments »

Hello, how is everyone?
I don't usually write much about my personal life on my blog. But, I decided to do a bit of updating on myself just for my followers.

It is summer and how I dread this time of year. You guys might think I am crazy, but I find fall and winter the best times of the year. I love gloomy, dark weather. I don't like sweating at all and I dislike that feeling of being sticky. The only thing I like about summer is I am off from school for about 3 months, yay!! But to be honest, there are times where I miss school, being able to go out and see friends everyday, it is a nice thing to have. During summer I am usually stuck inside and unable to do much. So I end up being a vampire, sensitive to the sunlight.

Last week, my cat injured her foot while we were playing. My cat rarely gets injure and this was my first time that I have seen her in so much pain, so I ended up crying terribly. She was unable to jump high for the next few days, but she seems to be doing well. She hasn't been trying to jump high though, I have no idea why, I was thinking she is scare that she might not be able to land perfectly if she try. So, I do hope to see her back to her normal self soon.

Towards my beauty and fashion part of my blog. I am sorry, I haven't been able to update towards that. I rarely wear make up during the summer and I usually don't go out much, so I tend to wear shorts and a t-shirt. I will try my best to keep you guys update with beauty related things, but it might be unable to do so for the time being. However, if you have any requests though feel free to ask. I am always here to listen/read your comments and reply to them as quickly as I can.

Thank you guys for reading! I hope you are having a wonderful day. ^^

Revlon's Spring and Summer Collection 2010

No Comments »

Hello everyone!
Yes,I am really slow since this collection has been out for awhile now. I was quite scared that there wouldn't be any items from this collection left, but I was wrong.

I was really interested in picking up 4 lip glosses from the collection. However, I only picked up 2 from the collection because I didn't want to spend too much money. I picked up Peach Petal and Lilac Pastelle. I wanted Coral Reef, but it was sold out and I was debating on picking up Pink Pop, but I think it is too bright for me. I tried the two colors that I bought on my lips and I really like them. I do not put much on my lips, but the color shows up. I probably will put Peach Petal on top of a lipstick, because of its light color. As for Lilac Pastelle it is fine on its own.

Anyways, here are pictures and swatches of the two items. I am quite tan, so the product probably doesn't come out as well as others.

Fashion Tag

No Comments »

Recently, I have been tagged by Aimee of Shortie With the Flaws (aimeehx3.wordpress.com). I am quite surprise since no one tag me before to do things like this. I was quite excited. Thank you Aimee for tagging me!

1.) What is fashion for you?
Fashion to me is a way a person is able to express their uniqueness through clothes. You can also see the heart of a designer through the clothes they make.

2.) What is your blog name and why?
I named my blog "Fashion, Beauty, Inspiration, from Wenjin", because it is a blog about how I feel for exactly those things.

3.) If you could raid one’s closet, whose closet would it be and why?
Wow, that is a hard question. I would probably raid T-ara's closet. I know it isn't one person, but a group. However, they dress pretty well and I would totally wear their everyday outfits.

4.) What is the song that describes you the most?
That is so hard...since most songs I listen to are about break ups or getting revenge. Which, are not in anyway related to how I feel or describes myself haha.

5.) Who is your style icon?
I have no specific style icon, but I really like the way the girls dress on Zipia.net.

6.) What is your biggest dream?
To be very successful in the fashion industry. :]

7.) Your own fashion style?
My fashion style I would say isn't bound to one thing. As in, I always switch it up.
There are days where I dress very girly, with ruffles, lace, and bright colors. But, then there are other days where I am wearing skinnies, sneakers, and wear dark clothing.

8.) Where do you usually shop?
I usually shop at Forever 21, H&M, and Urban Outfitters. However, those aren't the shops I always have to shop at since I like other stores as well, but I am just unable to afford something from them.


I will decide who I am tagging a bit later. :]

Just Got My Blazer from Ebay...and now I am going to sell it.

1 Comment »



First off, I would like to say when I saw this on ebay, I thought it was a must have. I didn't understand the sizing of the brand so I googled it. It said the Size 8 fits sizes around small or medium. So, I was like great! But I was wrong. It is way too big for me T________T It fits people who are large and up. It is a bit to big to give off the oversize look. So it might look better on people who can fit medium and up if you want that look.

I am selling it for $8 shipped.
I would like to say this product was pre-owned and has a scent of cigarettes which isn't my fault since no one in my house smoke. However, I believe you are able to remove the scent.

Please email at contactKWJ@gmail.com if you are interested.

Fashion Sketches #1

5 Comments »

Hello everyone! You guys are probably wondering what is this post about. Well, it about drawings that I have drawn up regarding fashion. The reason I decided to started drawing some fashion things is because my major in college is in Apparel Marketing and Design. Fashion is a major part of me and I wanted to show you, my followers that part of me.

I admit the outfits I drew up are not that great, but I am quite proud of them. I haven't drawn in such a long time. When I was younger I used to love drawing, but as I grew older it wasn't something I spent most of my time on. But, I decided since I love fashion and I am okay at drawing I might as well add those two things together.

The first outfit was inspired by a dress I really want to get. I am hoping I will be able too soon, but the back was something I added. I am very bad at drawing feet and shoes, so I hope you are able to at least know they are shoes.

The second outfit is an outfit that many might see me wear. I love blazers, long tanks tops and leggings/skinnies, I love that combination.

Well, I hope you guys will enjoy it!

The Love for Shoes

2 Comments »

I just wanted to show you, my readers current shoes that I would love to get my hands on. I wish I could find more of these shoes in the states. I know you guys are saying you see them everywhere. However, I am very picky with how tall the heels are or the color the shoes come in. If you notice I like light colors, I tend to stay away from black. However, I am thinking of getting some black heels/wedges just for my wardrobe.

If you guys can help me find stores that carry similar shoes to these please comment below!
Thank you in advance!

First Time with False Lashes :O

2 Comments »

You guys should know how much I dislike wearing mascara or doing anything with my lashes. However, I was really curious on how I would look like with false lashes and if they would make a big difference. I was scared that I wouldn't be able to even put them on and if they would even look good on my eyes. So, finally I just decided to try them on today.

(Eyeliner + Mascara)
The lashes I used were by Sugar Cosmetics and they are called "Flirt", they are criss-cross lashes. I bought them about 2 years ago, but I never officially try to put them on. I originally bought them from Sephora, but it seems like Sephora doesn't carry the brand anymore. However, I found them at Cherry Culture, so if you are interested you can check there.

What I think about them? I thought they were heavy and it felt so weird. But, I think that is because I am not use to wearing false lashes, so maybe I have to try again. The look that I have when the lashes are on is quiet scary, I thought I looked like some creepy doll, when I was recording videos. Even though they aren't much to my liking, I wouldn't mind trying on false lashes again and who knows, maybe I will end up loving them. :D

Thanks for reading!

Current Nail Polish +Review

No Comments »

Firstly, I would like to say that I rarely wear nail polish. Due to my dad's strict rules of me not wearing nail polish until I am an "old wrinkly" woman. Yes, I might be exaggerating on that part. However, I was always intrigue by the fantastic colors that I was able to paint my nails with nail polish. As I grew older my dad started to not notice the girly things I was doing, so I decided to start wearing nail polish..well light color nail polish.



(Applied w/ two Coats, one coat will be too sheer.)

This season, nudes are in! Esp. nude nail polishes. I thought to myself, I have to get one. And that what has made me have the current nail polish I own today. The nail polish I bought is from Sally Hansen, the color in Nude Now (230). The color I would say is a bit pink or salmon. It isn't a straight up nude color, since it have those hints of pinks. However, I find it very wearable and not over powering. There is no need for a top coat, since the nail polish is already glossy, and it does stay on for awhile.



The consistency of the product isn't bad, I think it is normal for nail polish. What, I find really amazing with this nail polish is it brush. The brush isn't an ordinary nail polish brush. The width of the brush is a lot thicker and flatter than a normal brush, which I find is great to do your nails quickly, and gives more of an even coverage over the surface of your nails. So, I would say that is a plus.

Overall, I must say I find this product a lot more pricey than like say China Glaze (Yes, China Glaze is probably only $2.00 less, but it is considered as a "top brand"). It is a good product, but I don't absolutely love it.
