Hoang-Kim Top Launch at Nordstrom :: Gibson x International Women’s Day Collection

I’m still speechless when I think about how a top I designed is selling online at Nordstrom. I have a bit of a surprise! There are actually two “Hoang-Kim” tops. I have a feeling these tops will sell out fast, so make sure you snap them up before your size is gone! If you purchase any of my tops, I would love it if you please tag me on Instagram! I would love to see y’all in my tops! Also, I want to say THANK YOU so much. If it weren’t for my incredible readers, this would not have been possible!

“Hoang-Kim” Top Sneak Peek :: Gibson IWD Collection Launching at Nordstrom

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.

Designing A Top for Gibson x International Women’s Day Collection

Happy FriYay! I have some huge news to share with y’all and I’m beyond excited! A dream of mine for years is coming true: designing a top for Gibson x International Women’s Day collection! The collection launches March 8 on International Women’s Day and is available at Nordstrom. The top I’m designing is versatile so it’ll be great for both work and the weekend. I can easily see myself restyling it multiple times for different settings and I know you will, too! It comes in two colors and I can’t wait to share a sneak peek with you once the final samples are complete! Being able to share the process with y’all is very exciting and I can’t wait to share what’s next. One reason I love the top I’m designing in particular is its versatility. You’ll be flattering on so many different women. Plus, Gibson offers sizes XXS Petite to XXXL.

Figure Skating with Outdoor Voices

Right boot on, then left boot on. Lace up the right skate, then lace up the left. On a crisp fall morning, come with me to Chilled Ponds, a local ice rink where I’m rediscovering my love for figure skating as a 27-year-old grandma (in figure skating terms, ha!)

I spent 11 years of my life figure skating. I pursued it competitively for most of those 11 years and as all good things, it came to an end. Injuries and just not being good enough to continue pursuing it pushed me to work hard toward my other dreams. I’m nowhere near as good as I used to be but figure skating in Outdoor Voices has inspired me to try some of my old tricks – even if it’s awkward, slow or ends in my butt on the ice.

How to Wear a Corduroy Overall Dress for Fall

Happy First of October! I’m so excited fall is here and this past weekend, the weather in Coastal Virginia even cooperated! We got some crisp temperatures and it was divine. I wore this corduroy overall dress over the weekend and got so many questions on my Instagram! This is my second overall piece this season and I’m really digging the trend. This overall dress is retro-inspired but with some modern touches. The mini length is perfect for petite gals, I’m 5’3, and doesn’t require alterations. This particular overall dress dips quite low in the front, so it’s perfect for layering with your favorite top. I love this white stretchy off-the-shoulder top for a simple look. One thing I love about this particular corduroy is how stretchy it is. This dress is quite comfortable to wear and the sage green color is perfect for fall!
