Hi Y’all! I’m Hoàng-Kim and it’s my goal to leave you feeling like you just hung out with your best friend. You feel confident, invigorated and smart. Like you just learned something new and you’re ready to tackle life.
Storytelling is a passion of mine. After years of working as a TV Journalist in Nebraska and Virginia, I’m thrilled to be home in Dallas, Texas surrounded by family and sharing my story.
I started Color & Chic in college as a way to encourage my friends to dress with confidence and it’s humbling to see it evolve to a place to share my elevated, livable and attainable style.
Being the daughter of Vietnamese political refugees, family is incredibly important to me. I’m the only one born in the USA – my parents and older siblings left communist Vietnam for freedom, democracy and human rights. I’m fluent in Vietnamese and love sharing bits of my culture.
I was the first Vietnamese-American to compete at Miss USA and representing Nebraska while working full-time as a TV reporter was such a humbling experience. Pageants gave me confidence, honed my public-speaking and communication skills and gave me so many friends. Being Miss Nebraska USA gave me so many chances to meet and serve new people along with incredible once in a lifetime opportunities.
I’m newly engaged to my fiancé, Johnny. We’ve been together for more than 10 years and while we don’t always do things the traditional way, they work for us and we love sharing how we do life together!
We recently closed on our very first home and love sharing the process of why we decided to build, what to look out for and how we are making our house a home. Sometimes we do one project a week, sometimes we tackle a few at the same time. No matter what we do, we love sharing it with you.
Please don’t hesitate to read up on my FAQ, leave us a note, send an email or DM or just say hi!
Thank you so much for being here and I hope you leave feeling savvy, inspired and rejuvenated!
