You must tell me where you got your PS1 and what season it is from
Sooo adorable ..I still haven't found "the one" yet ..I was thinking of purchasing a PS1 in an eye popping color like electric green or there is a beautiful coral on the market right now but then I thought I cant wear those like all the time.. what do you think ?
I'll probably end up going with something neutral.. as always haha
I bought that tan PS1 at the sample sale. it’s funky, right? and I do mean funky in a good way, haha. I also have the “smoke” color and am totally tempted by the coral and green as well! I’m beginning to collect PS1s like Chanel bags and, well, that’s a problem for my bank account. :)
I would recommend starting with a neutral/classic color before progressing to crazy brights!
I know you get a ton of beauty products, so I was just curious.
What are some of your beauty staples/products that you actually end up using the whole package?
I actually have a lot of strange guilt with products I take home and almost always try to finish something! but my favorites include Olay Regenerist face wash (the one with the little beads in it), Living Proof’s volumizing collection, Dr Hauschka face masks, Cover Girl Lash Blast Length, Burt’s Bees body scrub!
Hello! I know you have tons of questions just sitting in your inbox, but I love your style and your job. I'm a high school senior and I wanted to know if you could give me a few pointers on how to start a career in PR for Teen Vogue. Everybody tells me to major in everything BUT what I have a passion for. Thank you!!
fact: everyone and I do mean everyone will have an opinion on what you “should” do. don’t listen to them. I mean, do listen to them, nod politely and smile, but—at the end of the day—do what you want to do. major in what you love (and are good at). those two are probably one and the same! and if you’d like to work in PR, I highly suggest getting internships when you’re in college (no need to start interning ‘til then). work in different kinds of PR: fashion, beauty, magazine, until you find a type of PR you like. they’re all different. good luck—and remember to always listen to your heart!
Tad random but where are you ethnically from? Always wondered.
And on a more serious note, what type of degree would you say is more essential in you job, a degree in journalism/English/humanities or a degree in fashion design/ styling/costume ?
I would say it’s better to have a degree in a liberal arts sort of major, if you want to work in magazine journalism/writing. because, really, you just need to be able to write and convey ideas articulately. that’s a skill that will carry over into a lot of different fields, by the way. if you want to be a designer or stylist, then I think the latter degree might be more useful.
wow im so jealous!! you get to go to fashion show and go backstage?
are you a fashion designer too?
could you recommend something for me?
i am korean and have short legs. im a college kid so i can't go around wearing heels. how do i make my legs look longer?
yes, I do get to go backstage—it’s great fun but a little chaotic sometimes, especially when you’re getting clonked on the head with cameras. but, no, I’m not a designer. mostly I’m interviewing hairstylists, models, makeup artists, designers, etc. it’s a lot of fun! re: your fashion situation, I would recommend wearing things that are fitted to your true waist. for example, cute skirts with ballet flats. anything low-slung or sitting too low on the hips will make your legs look less gazelle-like. x
Hi Eve!! Just want to say i LOVE your blog! I check tumblr JUST to see your updates & photots!!
I was hoping to get some skincare advice from a beauty guru such as yourself. I'm in my mid-to-late twenties, Asian and just wondering what you can recommend as the best face moisturiser out there? There are a lot of anti aging, anti wrinkle but I do feel that I'm not at that stage yet! What would you recommend is the best to prevent the future "aging" and "wrinkles"? Have ou heard of the brand Sulwhasoo?
Sulwhasoo, despite having a craycray name, is hugely popular! worth checking out, for sure. for your age range though I’d recommend: a) prevention (wear SPF, don’t smoke, eat well, drink tons of water, etc) b) starting a retinoid (Retin-A) under moisturizer 2-3x a week (as often as your skin can tolerate)—it’s the only thing that every derm agrees is the fountain of youth. c) pamper and hydrate. I’m a big fan of at-home facials. there is, unfortunately, no one size fits all moisturizer. it’s a trial-and-error thing. but I do love SK-II, Olay Regenerist, Peter Thomas Roth and Lancome Genefique
I see you wear lots of heels...any tips, PLEASE? I can't seem to be able to stay in mine for more than 5 minutes!
(I absolutely adore your blog, btw!)
I feel your pain—literally. :) I do think a large part of wearing heels is conditioning your feet to get used to them. it’s taken me years to get my tootsies accustomed to wearing heels (almost) every day! let’s face it: feet want to be comfortable. they don’t want to be shoved into crazy angles, pinchy toe-boxes, etc. but what helps: breaking in heels gradually at home, not buying shoes that are uncomfortable even at the store, buying half a size bigger and using insoles, and—naturally—packing a pair of flats in your bag.
