Smile! for [COD #46] Casually Branding Professionalism


Yesterday, I attended the Blogger Bazaar in LA, and got to meet Chriselle Lim from The Chriselle Factor and Wendy Nguyen from Wendy’s Lookbook. It made me so very happy when Wendy and MM recognized me from meeting them last December at another meet up. At the meet up, I ended up buying a pair of golden wax skinny jeans from Liz Cherkasova’s AKA Late Afternoon‘s section. I’ll definitely wear them for another COD another day! (:


For the meet up, I wanted to thank Wendy, MM and their friend David (from David Kim Photography) for advice and guidance for my website and just helping me put myself and what I want to do out there to people. So story goes that recently, I was able to finally find a blazer that fit me! I was so excited about it so I wore it on top of a shirt that I recently printed on of my own design. So, yeah! That’s how the casual, yet personal branding, and on top of all that plus professional outfit came to be. Hopefully, it looks decent. X3


As a question for you all, if I were to print more of these shirts, would anybody be interested in them? As a struggling student, it’d be pretty helpful (and to be honest, an absolute dream come true) if people were interested in shirts that I actually designed because I think that shirts are the most affordable (efficient) art, compared to cards and paintings. So, what do you guys think?


Thanks for reading! (: Smile today! (:
