What makes a lady? As you know by now, my style doesn't reflect prim and posh (not that I don't love it but it's just not me) but rather more of an edgier kind of look. I may be physically petite and carry a delicate body frame, but my attitude and energy have been described the opposite of my tiny self. I'm known to be intense, bold, and even intimidating, but it's always confessed after getting to know me. I can understand - my facial features are strong thanks to those Korean and Eastern European roots. But it's also a Detroit thing (where I'm originally from), we don't back down and we're not afraid to speak out. Call it fearlessness - to me, it's more of an adversity kind of thing. I've been through a lot and perhaps that tends to bleed out, no matter how I might try to conceal it.

Those who do personally know me can attest to my warmth and silliness as well. I don't think anyone would say, "Awe, Suz is such a lady," as in extremely Bourgeoisie, but I've never been one to not carry class. Am I always going to walk away from whatever situation and have this mentality of, 'it's best to leave it alone/not my business/etc;? Nope. I'm not afraid to use my voice, and to me, in this day and generation, what makes a lady is a woman who is fiercely strong, independent, and uses her mind to make an impact on anything she sets out to. And all the while maintaining her femininity, hard and soft together... refined.

Today's ladylike outfit is one I would wear to a girlfriend's baby shower or Sunday church. Which in this case, is a rare occasion. Ha ha! What I love about this Medea Maris white organza trench (many of you on Instagram mistook it as a dress in yesterday's post, which could be worn as one anyhow) is its versatility. You can style it more casually with an awesome pair of distressed denim jeans or leather leggings. But its genteel-like quality can also be styled very feminine chic. For example, I wore a dusty pink dress which is a hot-hot-hot spring trend color and with a pair of Manolo Blahnik patent nude pumps. To polish up the entire look, I accessorized with an embroided clutch by Louise & Eleanor and Kendra Scott Alex earrings. I hope you enjoyed today's post! Regardless how your style is, a lady carries it with her always. Same goes for the gents, am I right, ladies? :)

What I would give to spend Mother's Day with my Ma. But I refuse to be sad because my mother would not want me to be this way. She made it clear to live life fully and to make time to enjoy it. Life is endured with its ebbs and flows but also remember that it's short. It goes fast. So, for this week's look, I'm dedicating it to my Ma, Sun-Hui, a.k.a. Sunny.

My outfit I styled (including hair and makeup), is in reflection toward what I'd actually wear this coming Sunday. If I could be with her, we'd definitely start Mother's Day with brunch! New York City style! And this casual chic look is not only something I'd be wearing, but it is also a twist on her style, which was fresh, light, and always feminine. But she was also cheeky. I remember her having a tank top with the words, 'slippery when wet' on the front. I admired her fashion sense and even when I was little, she'd dress me up in girly outfits and hair do's. But that all changed around the age of 6-7, when I started to develop my own individuality. I didn't want her to pick out my outfits anymore because I felt they were no longer my style! I knew it'd hurt her feelings, and when I had told her she did take it badly. I just wasn't a girly-girl and dresses were not really my thing. My favorite piece of clothing as a kid? Colored sweatpants! 😝

Fast forward some decades later and yes, now I like dresses (from time to time). No, I still don't prefer sweatpants, though pajamas are a close runner up especially when working from home. Ha, ha! I'm definitely a t-shirt and jeans kind of gal. Add in some sneakers and I'm good to go. But, lately, I, myself, have been feeling more feminine. Like a flower, in the process of blooming. I can't wait to share with you a brand new story in the next coming days! It has a lot to do with flowers and I've got the perfect gift idea for Mother's Day! A definite must-do if I were to spend Sunday with my Ma. Stay tuned.

Mother's Day is this Sunday! My fourth 'Suz's Look' video is a play-up on what'd I'd be wearing if my Ma was still here and if I was lucky enough to spend the day with her. A twist on her style, if you will.
