Adorable Asian Babies Who Dress Better Than You (PART III)

 

If there’s one thing our readers can’t seem to get enough of, it’s Adorable Asian Babies. We’ve showcased the cuties with puppies, in Halloween costumes and even squeal-worthy submissions from our loyal readers.

But a favorite among everyone seems to be the  “Adorable Asian Babies Who Dress Better Than You” series. Apparently, we all can’t get enough of tiny tots who dress better than we ever did back in the day.

Who am I kidding? Some of these kiddos still dress better than us.

Calling All Shopaholics: EVEN MORE H&M is Coming Soon

 

Start saving up your daily allowance or summer job paycheck! H&M is about to open a whopping number of 375 stores in the US and China later this year, opening an average of one store per day! For those of you couch potatoes who would rather stay in the cool indoors, your in luck as well because H&M also has plans to expand their online stores, bringing their total number of e-stores to 13.

According to the New York Daily News last year, H&M gained so much popularity from young consumers that it put their teen retail competitors such as Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle behind. Despite this achievement however, H&M still has many other strong competitors in the market including major retailers such as Zara and GAP, that are both also in the works of adding more stores in China as well.

If you’re anything like me, that is, someone that can always come up with a reason (albeit, not always logical) to buy a new pair of shoes – well, get even more excited! In order to compete with their fellow rivals, H&M had to step it up, thus expanding expanding their shoe collection in nine different countries in both physical and online stores, including China, US, the UK and Sweden.

Happy shopping!

EXTRA PETITE: Short Girls Unite With This Must-See Fashion Blog

Television tricked me. When I was a little girl, I would watch all the 6-feet-tall television actors live out their character’s high school days (even though the actors were probably well into their mid-twenties) and I would dream about the day that I would sprout to be that tall.

So when I stopped at 5’2″, I felt cheated. I hated being used as another person’s armrest and I stared daggers at anyone who asked how the weather was “down there.” Most importantly, I hated the feeling that clothes wouldn’t look as good on me because of my small figure.

Luckily, I grew up and learned a few things. Aside from the perks of tip-toe kisses, being called “cute” and getting away with a child’s ticket at the movies, I quickly learned that I could choose clothes that both fit and flatter my “fun-size” frame.

Lucky for all of us, girls like Jean have mastered this art and can help us along the way. Just under 5 feet, Jean is the author of the adorable fashion blog, Extra Petite. The blog describes itself as “a fashion blog that provides styling ideas and shopping information with a focus on professional attire. This blog also aims to share suggestions and solutions for those who may be shorter than the average woman, yet still want to look stylish and feel confident.”

You can’t help but look through the blog and want all of her clothes– especially after knowing that it can actually work with your height.

Check out some of her recent looks below and don’t forget to view her blog here.

Adorable Asian Babies Who Dress Better Than You

Our faithful Audrey readers have made one thing clear to us: they love adorable Asian babies. Of course, we don’t blame them. Who can resist squealing over those round eyes and chubby cheeks?

To appease our readers, we brought you the Adorable Asian Baby Overload, Asian Babies With Puppies and even A Halloween Costume Edition. Looks like we’re all out of cute babies, right?

 

Don’t you worry. We noticed one thing in particular with these children who reach social media fame. Many of them have a killer fashion sense. That, or they have parents who understand how much we eat these pictures up. Some people complain that these fashion-heavy photos are simply parents vicariously living through their children by dressing them up to reach viral fame. Others claim that these parents simply enjoy the idea of a well-dressed toddler. Whatever the reason may be, they certainly caught our attention.

Here are kids who make the playground their runway and lower our self-esteem by dressing way better than we ever did during our toddler years.

Indian American Waris Ahluwalia Stars in Gap’s Latest Holiday Campaign

San Francisco-based retailer, Gap, has quickly created a positive buzz with its latest campaign. Designer/actor Waris Ahluwalia, arguably one of the most prominent Indian American and Sikh figures in the fashion world (just check his Style.com pages), is one of the campaign’s featured faces.

Just released at the start of the month, the campaign stars a slew of personalities including Ahluwalia (as well as this year’s Unforgettable host, Lisa Ling) and has drawn a number of positive comments for the diversity in its casting.

Seen alongside artist and filmmaker Quentin Jones, Ahluwalia is seen modelling the mega-retailer’s latest holiday fashions — a puffer vest and a button down shirt.  But it’s not just the clothes that have created a buzz.  In an industry that often draws flak and criticism for its lack of diversity, the conscious decision to cast and feature Ahluwalia as one of the faces of a globally-recognized brand is undoubtedly a needed change, a powerful statement on representation and tolerance and a much-needed step forward.

Many fans have been quick to show their support.  On Gap’s Facebook page, the photo featuring Ahluwalia has already garnered over 700+ likes and quite a few positive comments.  A sampling of which is below:

Keenu Hundal Saw this ad in teh (sic) downtown San Francisco store and literally stopped in my tracks. I was so happy to see you all select a Sikh male in your new ad campaign. We need to make the Sikh male image more mainstream in order to educate the general public on who we are, so that ignorace does not breed hate any longer. Thank you, Gap!

Charu Kapoor Deshpande You guys have truly raised the advertising/marketing bar … Bravo for making a statement by setting yourselves apart and recognizing how the world had changed and is changing! Best campaign I have ever seen because you stepped outside the box!! Bravo

 

Suvraj Mandeep Thank you Gap. It’s such a proudest moment to finally see that major designer store has choose Sikh as there Frontwall model who is actually a pure Sikh (the one who wears Turban and has full beard). Truly, a vary proud moment for all the Sikhs. Finally, putting Gap to my top list for shopping this holiday!

 

With such a positive response, we can only hope that this helps mark a new, more diverse, more representative era in the often-exclusionary world of fashion.

 

Countdown to KCON 2013 | Fashion Post: What to wear for the big weekend!

KCON 2013 is just around the corner, and the question that has risen for most (if not all) attendees is this: “WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR?!”  With thousands of fellow hallyu fans and not to mention a notable handful of idols in attendance this year, the pressure is on to find that perfect outfit.  Stuck on what to wear this year?  No fear!  We’ve broken down KPOP fan fashion into three rough categories, based on what we’ve observed (and worn) from our own time in the hallyu scene.  Take a look at what may suit you!

 

The Style Mavens

Admittedly, you’re a K-Pop fan.  You have your favorite artists, biases/ideal types and OTPs (one true pair for those who may not be familiar), but the visual cues of your fandom memberships are subtle.  You choose to set off your fashion-forward outfits with K-Pop accessories, ranging from phone cases to rings to necklaces, phone cases or even those cute socks with your favorite idol’s face on them (hidden by your sneakers, of course).  Though you love your idols just as much as the next person, you’re fine with showing your love through small displays.

So something like this…

Worn with something like this…

(From L to R: G-Dragon “One of a Kind” necklace, EXO ring, Teen Top rings)

Shameless Stans

You’re equally as devoted to making a fashion statement as you are about showing off your KPOP loyalties.  Whether a shirt emblazoned with Dynamic Duo’s faces, a GD snapback a la “Bad Boy,” or a pair of Teen Top socks (with appropriate shoes), you’re not afraid to show others where your loyalties lie.  And as popular fashion-blogger Tricia Gosingtian shows, the “fangirl/fanboy” look can be much more than just wearing a t-shirt and jeans — but regardless of sartorial tendencies, you’re a clear KPOP fan.

Tricia’s take on KPOP fan fashion:

(Clearly, Trica’s a GD/Big Bang stan.)

Besides Tricia’s GD-inspired tops (which we’re absolutely in love with), here’s some other things that you can pick up for your outfit, picked especially for KCON:

(K)osplayers

You’re a fan who is wholly committed to the cause…of KPOP.  You’ve done your extensive research and everything from your hair, makeup and clothes is a carbon copy of your favorite idol.  Whether it’s donning the same Joyrich/Chrome Hearts/Stussy/HBA/(insert cool streetwear brand here) T-Shirts and jerseys, colorful clothes, or homemade costume ala your favorite music video, you are a perfect double take for your favorite oppa, unnie or dongsaeng.  With a deluge of KPOP online shops making it ridiculously easy to know what clothes your favorite idols are wearing, it’s easier than ever to become an idol, or at least, look like one.

Some great (k)osplays from online:

But hands down, one of our personal favorites — little Big Bang!

So now that you’ve seen the different styles, what will you be wearing at KCON this year?
