Trench coat shopping is one of my biggest nightmare. It’s either too long in length, the fit is awkward, or the length of the sleeves were always too long. I’m about 4’10”, and wearing coats that past my waist makes me look even shorter. Back in January I decided to give Burberry trench coat a try as well as to treat myself to a nice birthday gift.
When I went in, of course they questioned my age (not literally) by giving me weird stares and a hesitant “hello,” but I’m happy I didn’t get any rude sales associates. The SA that helped me was very nice, and she took my height into consideration and was very patient with me. I was interested in buying The Chelsea – Heritage Trench Coat in black since I love wearing white, grey, and black. I never knew they came in 4 sizes (shown below) – short, mid, long, x-long.
Mini pencil skirt is a great alternative for ladies under 5 feet who are looking for work outfits. At 4’10, I struggle with finding skirts that are at the perfect length. But I noticed that most mini skirts are actually the perfect length on me. Mini skirts, and mini dresses, usually stops above my knees or below my mid-thighs. I bought this skirt from Uniqlo last winter because I thought I could wear it casually out to lunch or dinner with friends. But after a few uses, I realized that it can also work for business casual attires. Today, I wore it with a white lace-up crop top T-shirt from Romwe, grey heels, and a gray cardigan.
Cosplaying and attending anime conventions is one of my favorite hobbies. I love being able to dress up as my favorite character and take pictures of other cosplayers. Since 2013, I have always cosplay as Sakura Kimonoto from Cardcaptor Sakura. For Titan Con, I decided to go as Sakura’s best friend, Tomoyo Daidouji. Since this was a last minute decision to attend, I decided to go for something simple.
Tomoyo is an elementary school girl in the anime, so my height at 4’10 and my baby face worked out for this school girl cosplay. Here are a few photos from Titan Con 2017.
Here are some of my favorite photos from our trip to Boston, Massachusetts. It was my sister and I first time in the east coast, and it was an amazing experience. We stayed with our Aunt who was more than happy to give us a tour around Boston. I fell in love with the city and would visit again. I visited the week of April 17 to April 22. The weather ranged between 48 to 52 degrees Fahrenheit. As a person who grew up in California her entire life, I am never complaining about California’s ‘cold’ weather ever again.
