NAME: Denise Lai
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?
It started when I was living in New York and I wanted to share my life with friends and family back in Asia. Over time, it evolved into more of a style blog.
WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?
100% completely random
WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?
I’ve been told that my blog is completely personable. As if you’re talking to a friend.
DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?
I’m most known for my signature black frame glasses and cat eye eyeliner. Other than that, I’m always in black or another form of monotone.
WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?
I don’t have one absolute #1, but Jayne Min from STOPITRIGHTNOW is pretty awesome.

Local Hong Kong brand JOURDEN
Too many to list right now as I live on the internet and am on my computer 85% of my waking hours.

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?
Too many THINGS in one outfit (like a headband plus a crazy bag plus crazy jacket plus crazy shoes)
3 FASHION TIPS?
1. When in doubt, go for black.
2. Don’t kill your feet: if you can’t walk in heels, just go for Chuck Taylors.
3. It’s okay to repeat outfits.
