To say I’m speechless would be an understatement. Humbled, honored, proud… these are some of the things I feel when I look at these photos. I’m so thrilled to finally share these “Hoang-Kim” top sneak peeks with you! Many of you know I’ve been working with Gibson for months to design a top for their International Women’s Day collection. It will launch Friday, March 8 at exclusively at Nordstrom! It’s unreal to think my image, my name and my top will be on Nordstrom.com! This has been a dream of mine since I started Color & Chic years ago and it’s coming to fruition.

Dallas Apartment Decor Update

By now, most of you know we moved to Dallas. Reading each of your comments about our new home is just heartwarming. Moving into this stunning apartment still feels like a whirlwind. Especially with Vietnamese New Year being right after our move-in date, things have been so hectic to make sure we get our place clean and settled properly. We wouldn’t want to ring in the new Lunar New Year in a bad way! While our home is far from finished, I want to share an apartment decor update with y’all. This way you can see the space as it comes together and see our process. Clearly, I’m no expert but I love to add things as I feel they’re needed. Plus, I believe keeping an open mind is key. Being in this apartment has taught us a few things when it comes to layout and design.

My Summer Beach Beauty Essentials

Hello my beautiful friends! I hope your week is going well so far. Since we are kicking off beach weather in Coastal Virginia, I want to share my beach beauty essentials. These are items I love to bring to the beach to keep my skin healthy and at its best. It’s so important to take your skin’s health very seriously. Take a little time to get your skin ready for the sun and you can enjoy your time soaking up that vitamin sea! There is nothing worse than coming home from the beach with sunburned, peeling and dehydrated skin. It’s not a good look and will most certainly age you rapidly. We don’t want that! Of course, in conjunction with these beach beauty essentials, don’t forget to drink tons of water to stay hydrated from the inside out! Now, let’s get to the essentials!

Romantic Vibes :: Floral Kimono with Classic Black Pumps

There is something so romantic about florals and beautiful sweet treats. When I first saw this pink tone floral kimono, I knew I had to have it. The mix of soft pinks with touches of vibrant magenta along with the silky fabric is ultra feminine. This is a great piece for spring and summer since you can easily throw it over tops or dresses. This floral kimono only comes in one size, so I can see how this piece can be too long on those who are extra petite. Fortunately for me, the length isn’t too long and is quite sophisticated. It hits a few inches above my ankles and I keep the kimono open to help elongate my body.
