Wendy finds inspiration in art, nature, culture, architecture, food, people, and music. And for her, fashion is a compilation of all that. Fashion is a vehicle for her to play with shapes and colors in order to uncover her personal style. Even though she is inspired by images she see on the runways, she is more captivated by images she see on the streets.
The perfect summer uniform! From work to weekend, it’s a great mix of volume and color.
I’m very fortunate to have jobs (both at WLB and Artemis) that give me freedom to dress in whatever I want. I remembered my old Wells Fargo banking days when this was not an option. I wore this copper set to work and then dinner afterwards, and was stopped multiple times by curious minds all complimenting the style and design.
I switched out my suede pumps and work bag for leather sandals and a PVC bag for the weekends. This outfit works so well with casual elements as well. To be honest with you, I love sets. They make dressing so easy and they’re great worn as separates.
And the best part – Marissa Webb is on sale (plus many designer items up to 40% off) right now. Below are some of my favorites. Enjoy!
I’m working on a few fun things and this PVC bag with leather pouch is actually part of our signature kits at Artemis (we’re on 87 Christopher Street in New York). The bag + pouch is free as part of the kit (which comes with high quality CBD products). I promise to share more about Artemis soon. Artemis is open though and I’m constantly fine-tuning the store experience.
Have a great week, and as always, thank you so much for reading!
Only two hours from NY, this colourful and peaceful place is full of charm and adventures. From tasting the best fish sandwich to seeing the most turquoise blue waters… Bermuda is truly breathtaking!
I didn’t realize that paradise was less than two hours away! It takes the same amount of time getting to the airport as it is flying to Bermuda. An incredible place for a weekend trip or a week long getaway, Bermuda has something for every body. My brother and his wife came to visit us last week and we were seriously thinking about heading to Bermuda again. We just didn’t have enough time (they were here in NYC for only two days). Next time though, we’re going to pack the whole family up and head to the jewel of the Atlantic. Colin and I had such a great time there that we want to share Bermuda with everyone.
From Jobsons Cove beach to Horseshoe Bay beach to every beach hugging Bermuda, the colors are unbelievable. Pictures do not do it justice. Turquoise blue waters rolling over salmon pink sands, the vibrant hues sparkle against golden sunsets and soft winds.
A must-do in Bermuda – the Crystal Caves! One of the largest caves in the island, Crystal Caves is an underground natural wonder that illuminates flashes of greens and blues. Dark, damp, and mysterious, the entrance to the caves is steep and deep. Once inside, lights turn on illuminating the incredible structures and formations.
In addition to the caves, the town of St. George’s has an old world charm to it, the best fish sandwich is in Bermuda (we tried Art Mel’s and it’s sooo good!), and one of the best views of Bermuda is at Gibbs Hill Lighthouse.
I hope you enjoy this photo journal and thank you so much for reading!
All black, a NYC uniform indeed. But this time, with something extra!
These days, my most comfortable outfits are usually all-black. With work on Wendy’s Lookbook and now Artemis (will share in a blog post soon!), the easiest and most time-saving outfits are a combination of black with black. And I definitely don’t think all-black is boring. Quite the opposite. With a mix of textures and shapes, all-black is incredibly chic!
A mixture of silk, leather, and velvet anchored by all-black. And a dash of neon! A pop of color with each step!
Hello new skin! That much needed healthy spring glow!
I’ve actually been extremely diligent about my skincare regimen. One, because it’s still winter here (unfortunately, it’s still cold and wintery in NYC). And two, because less is more. I’m really focusing on giving my dull winter skin a new look and just focusing on the essentials.
I think Biossance was secretly listening in on my wish. I love love masks! They’re like a retreat for our face. I also love masks, because it’s me-time. A 15-minute moment of quality alone time with my thoughts (and with kitty cuddles if I’m lucky). This Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Mask is exceptional! It smells like heaven with pure 10% vitamin C and ginseng and rose oil. A gel that transforms into a cream upon application and 15 minutes later – my skin looks and feels brighter and smoother.
And it keeps getting better. There’s a deluxe size Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil with each mask! So after the mask treatment, we can enjoy the super hydrating and soothing power of squalane plus Vitamin C plus rose oil. I actually don’t have any face make-up on in the last picture. And the reality is that my skin journey took months. And by months, I mean 36 months. It sounds crazy and extremely long, but that’s the reality.
I was very committed to using clean, non-toxic products, and sticking to the essentials. I still use the Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil (it was one of the first products that Biossance launched) the every morning and night to this day, I switch between the Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer and Squalane + Omega Repair Cream depending on climate, and I use a mask once a week. Over the months, I greatly notice a decrease in redness, my skin feels and looks more hydrated and radiant, and the best part, I can wear significantly less make-up and feel significantly more confident.
Thank you so much for reading! And thank you for being on this journey with me! See you soon on Wednesday!
Tulle! I always have a soft spot for tulle. Beautiful for nighttime and dressy occasions, it’s also so pretty for daytime. Charming and whimsical, it’s an instant mood enhancer!
Tulle is usually in a skirt or dress form, and not so much in casual form. That’s why I immediately fell in love with this piece when I saw it. This tulle t-shirt is so much fun! A simple tee elevated with a layer of tulle. I love that you can wear it with jeans and flats, with shorts and kitten heels, with a flowy skirt and statement pumps, so much more. It makes dressing so much fun!
Hope you’re having a great week so far and thank you so much for reading!
Dash of sweetness, pinch of edginess – two outfits today, perfect for spring and almost spring weather.
The vibrant red color, the mini buttons, the dramatic sleeves, this top embodies the spirit of spring! I love that you can wear the sleeves on or off shoulder. I wanted to create a full color story, so I paired with top with red accessories. An almost all red look for spring!
From the mini length to the puff sleeve to the asymmetrical neckline, this sweater dress is perfect for spring! Especially when the temperature is not quite warm yet. I love it with snakeskin boots for a city look and with sneakers for a comfy weekend style.
I hope you enjoy both looks and happy spring! Wishing you a great week ahead and thank you so much for reading!
Spring is so close, we can almost feel it! A little taste of spring with ruffles and a fun nail art design.
The romance of spring captured in a dress. From the sweetheart neckline to puffed sleeves to the pocket details, this dress is so sweet and flirty! I love that you can wear the sleeves on and off-the-shoulders. It’s perfect for day dates, date nights, brunch, and every moment in between.
I’m not a huge nail art girl, but when I see a design I love, I love. And I love this particular design. It’s a modern twist on french nails with the tips wider, color deeper, and elevated with a thin black line. It’s such a neutral design that works with virtually every outfit!
Hope you’re having a great week and thank you so much for reading!
Lady in red, spring edition! A spring dress that’s perfect for day dates, date nights, and every moment in between!
From the square ruffled neckline to the scalloped hemline to the beautiful embroidery, this midi number is so pretty in person. Pairing red with reds, I wore this on date night and got so many compliments!
Marissa and I were having dinner the other day and we talked about doing something fun for spring. For this week, I’m curating five MW looks and what better way to welcome spring than with a discount code (‘WENDYSPICKS’)!
Hope you had a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!
Embracing spring with a shorter look. Both hair and outfit!
It was warm enough to wear shorts and skirts the other day, so I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to style something more spring appropriate. A little mix of ruffles with a hint of something industrial anchored by sky blue hues.
I hope you’re having a great week so far. Colin and I have been working nonstop on a very very special project (more along the lines of a long term project). I can’t wait to share it with you soon. As always, thank you so much for your love and support. And thank you so much for reading!
Greetings from San Francisco! A swing that overlooks the city to jaw dropping structures, sharing my two must-see places in San Francisco.
Perfect lighting peeking through grand columns and structures, the Palace of Fine Arts is a local favorite and also a visitor must-visit destination. When I lived here, we actually stopped by this area often. My brother, who works a cross the street, takes breaks and walks in the afternoon a few times a week here. It’s a beautiful area for a picnic, people watching, observing nature, and just having quiet moments to yourself. If you’re interested in photography, golden hour lighting is incredible here!
San Francisco has a few swing areas. At times, they’re down but when they’re up, it’s a must-do activity! This swing is in Bernal Heights Park and you can see the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge from here. It’s about a 10 minutes hike all the way up to the swing, and along the way, you can see panoramic views of the city. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn’t too crowded.
I hope you enjoyed today’s mini San Francisco tour. I lived here for 10 years and every time I come back, there’s a renewed love and appreciation for this city. Hope you had a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!
