3 Ways To Wear A Silk Camisole

by Tammy


Camisoles are no longer playing a supporting role in our closets, lingerie is making its way back to the streets!

I have to confess that I have always been obsessed with lingerie! To me the perfect combination of fabrics will always be silk and lace because it is so feminine and beautiful. 

 Here are 3 fun ways to wear this trend:

The first option is perfect for a Night Out! You could always add a blazer for a more sophisticated appeal or a leather jacket for an edgy look.

Option 2 is perfect for an everyday look. I paired my silk cami with a simple white tee and distressed denim. I also love layering the cami with a white collar shirt or a turtleneck top.

Option 3 is wearing the cami as a bralette with an oversized sweater! The textures go well together and I love having the eyelash lace showing up!

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Ethan Nguyen. Ethan has quite an impressive resume. He completed his undergraduate studies at Vassar College and trained for his master's degree at the University of Pennsylvania. His past experiences include working at Giorgio Armani Corporation, Elle.com and TJW Foundation. 

Ethan is the founder and chief curator of M Concept Shop. Based in Philadelphia, M Concept Shop focuses solely on carrying selected clothing, jewelry and lifestyle products from local designers, emerging brands and independent small companies. 

The space evolved from a one-year retail project that won "Best of Philadelphia" to being a permanent unique shopping destination on the Philadelphia retail landscape. With "shop different, shop local" as the space's motto, Ethan brings together products that highlight the design talent and creative visions from a new generation of local designers and independent businesses.

Along with curating products from over 21 brands for the space, Ethan also serves as the creative director for the store's private label, M Concept X. M Concept X is a ready to wear label that bridges designs produced in Philadelphia with those that are globally created and sourced. 

M Concept Shop is currently home to three out of five residents in the Philadelphia Fashion Incubator: Penrose Design Studio, West Oak Designs, and Eluthera. In addition, the space carries collections from Philadelphia brands such as Tesoro, Anethum, Tim Eads, Lotasi, Worthwild, Hemlock & Key, and Damiano Collection.

Philly’s local boutique scene is something that’s unique for tourists, and provides quality and convenience for residents. Whether you are a local or just visiting the City of Brotherly Love, M Concept Shop should definitely be one of your shopping destinations! 

Come and experience it for yourself!

Denim shorts and Floral Blazer

by Tammy


September is a very special month to me because it is the month I gave birth to my amazing daughter. Chloe has brought immeasurable joy to my life since I first laid my eyes on her. She has taught me to be better, to be stronger, to be flexible, to be patient, to keep going. I love to watch life through the purity of her eyes and feel truly blessed to call her mine. Today, I introduce you to the mini me. My little fashionista!

Chloe has quite a personality and always picks what she wants to wear, she has a particular crush on dresses which predominate in her closet.

For today's look, Chloe is wearing her absolute favorite dress from Dolce & Gabbana kids. She loves getting dressed up! Her shoes are from Melissa (a Brazilian brand). They are from the Alice in Wonderland collection. All Melissa shoes are made of a scented, durable, hypoallergenic and recyclable PVC . Their flats are unbelievably comfortable and they smell like candy!

For my look below, I picked a classic combo: denim shorts + white tee and paired up with this cute blazer from H&M to build an effortless look! The sunnies are my favorite of the moment, Celine 41093. They are so chic and there is no such thing as too many black sunglasses right?! :)

Chloe's look: Dress: Dolce and Gabanna Kids/ Shoes: Melissa My look: T-shirt: Rag and Bone/ Shorts: DFTI boutique/ Belt : Hermes/ Shoes: Chanel/ Bag: Fendi/ Necklaces: Banana Republic/ Blazer: H&M/ Sunglasses: Celine/ Watch: IWC

Vintage Kimono

by Tammy


Hi, everyone! I’m so excited about this post not only because I now own a beautiful Kimono, but also because I am going to wear it in Japan!!! And to make my trip to the land of the rising sun fun and real, why not dress up to the occasion?!  

So last week, I went to the Kimono House located in Soho, NYC and I must say that I was beyond impressed with their extensive selection of Kimonos – it was a dream come true to finally honor my heritage by purchasing a vintage, silk, hand made kimono (yay!)

This kimono caught my eye as soon as I stepped into the store... There are so many details along with the statement colors and the beautiful flower print. To me, vintage kimonos are a 3 dimensional work of art draped over a body.

For the Japanese, the act of getting dressed is one more ritual among many. I must say that even after a 45-minute class, I still have trouble tying my Obi belt…

Oh, and before I forget, if you are also passionate about the Japanese culture and happen to be in Philadelphia, the Sakura festival happens yearly in the Shofuso Japanese House and Garden (p.s: the Shofuso house in Philly is a must see!). This place is considered a museum and the actual house was built in Japan then transferred to the USA and Re-assembled.

Hope you guys like this post and the tips… now, on to the Kimono’s picture!
