Personal Style Outfit-A Fall Investment

I'm officially debunking the urban myth that all Asians are good at math. I was born in Shanghai and am as Chinese as they come and yet I shrink away from computations and numbers like it's EVOO and I'm H2O which is probably why I went down the word dense paths of lawyering and blogging. The husband, on the other hand, is fabulous with numbers and loves to talk to me about investments, returns, and dividends. During these one-sided discussions, my mind wanders off into a number-less utopia devoid of currency. Needless to say, I don't retain much information from our talks.  However, over the years, J's business acumen has influenced my decision-making abilities when it comes to shopping as I know just when to purchase investment pieces that will garner the greatest fashion returns.

This Generation Love tweed motorcycle jacket with leather sleeves is a perfect investment piece for fall. The two tone jacket is one of fall's biggest trends and I especially love the duality of the silhouette. It's both structured and a bit flowy which opens up its layering versatility and occasion-adapting agility. My faux leather leggings from Growze is another fall staple piece that I've been wearing nonstop. I prefer faux to real leather as the lining is amazingly soft yet thick enough to keep my legs warm. The twisted asymmetrical seams narrow the width of the hips creating a thinning illusion that's welcoming and necessary.










  
Top: A.L.C. (cheaper option here)
Jacket: Generation Love (similiar hereherehere, and one more)
Pants: c/o Growze (similar here, here, and one more)
Pumps: Manolo Blahnik (almost identical here, here, and a great cheaper option
Purse: Miu Miu (similar here, and cheaper option here)
Rings: David Yurman | Forever 21

I wore this outfit all over town last Saturday. During the day, it made an appearance at my friend's house where we gathered to watch the USC v. UCLA football game. My Trojans lost but we've won twelve out of the last fourteen games so it was more of a pity win for the Bruins. USC supports many charities. After the game, I headed out to the launch party of LAMERCH, a new Silverlake boutique that sits next door to LAMILL, its sister restaurant/cafe. The boutique is cutely curated, carries one-of-a kind items like vintage tea sets and party frocks from d.RA Clothing. It's truly a holiday must stop shop. At the party, I gorged on homemade Snicker bars and cheesecake parfait but made sure to save room for dinner. I then headed to Baco Mercat in Downtown LA where my friends and I shared a delicious meal of flat breads, chicken and biscuits, and open-faced "baco" sandwiches. And unlike my typical "out and about" days, I didn't do a single outfit change as my look took me from day to night. Now that's one fabulous investment!
