With summer in full swing, it’s time for some fun in the sun. Whether you’re heading to the beach or to a garden barbeque, you’ll always be in style with these summer must-haves.
It’s time for another edition of Summer Styling. This time around, we’re focusing on the dress code for our favorite kind of summer event—concerts!
Nothing screams summer like lying out on the grass and listening to some great music under the sun. Whether you’re hitting up a rave or listening to some local music in the park, you’ll never be out of style with these fashion tips.
What’s summer without summer love, harmless flirting, and a night of dancing with your girls? Whether you’re out on the town with a potential lover for a passionate and romantic date night or an easy, careless fun night out with your girls, an Audrey girl must always be wearing the appropriate attire. This is why we selected a few styles/trends that we think is fitting for these two different summer nights. Continue Reading »
During the summer if you’re not in shorts, dresses, tank tops, spaghetti straps, or t-shirts you should be enjoying the warm weather in a stylish swimsuit. To make things easier for our Audrey readers, we’ve scoured swimwear after swimwear to round up 10 of the fashionable swimsuits to flaunt all throughout summer.
We’ve selected styles from the triangle bikinis to cut outs and one pieces. To bring the popular and ordinary 2-piece swimsuits to another level try them in fin and interesting prints. If you’re more of a basic and simple kind of girl, check them out in different cuts such as the twisted bandeau or ringed cut-outs on the top. As for your bottoms, try something with more coverage such as the charming boy-brief cut. Don’t forget the option of mixing and matching for a more fun and unexpected look.

STORY: Anna M. Park
Indie rocker Meg Frampton has always been frustrated with jewelry. “I think jewelry should have special meaning and should remind the person of something positive. It shouldn’t just be a shiny rock on a chain,” says the 26-year-old, who once worked at a jewelry chain store. So she crafted a robot out of base metals and vintage watch parts and named it Chandler (yes, the one from Friends — Frampton’s one-time obsession).
“Chandler the robot is quirky, steampunk, a bit on the ‘industrial’ side with a classy-feminine edge,” says Frampton. She’s expanded the collection to include other iterations of the original (Stupendous Chandler is particularly adorkable), bringing her visions to life while on tour with her sister Dia and country singer Blake Shelton. Her love of the quirky spills over into the Korean-Dutch American’s personal style as well, who finds inspiration in the gothcute aesthetic of filmmaker Tim Burton. “I love it when fashion has personalities,” says Frampton. “Sometimes I like adding a little
‘darkness’ to an outfit.”
My feel-good outfit: Cute shoes and a vintage dress. Big earrings.
Wearing straight off the runway: Floral accents, wedges.
Can’t wait to wear: High-waisted cut-off denim shorts — because I live in Austin, Texas, and I can.
Style secret: Keep a pair of flats in your purse if you know you are going to be out for a whole evening, just in case your heels are killing you.

Our latest Audrey Style Gal comes by way of San Francisco: Suzie Hung of Style Que by Suzie Q!
Mothers — with all their earnest, loving intentions — can often be entertaining, and their advice can be an interesting mix of serious, silly, insightful and mind-boggling (sometimes all rolled up into one zinger you can’t wait to share with your friends). In honor of Mother’s Day, we’ve asked fellow Asian American writers and artists to share the funniest advice they’ve ever gotten from their mothers.
