Happy 2008!

Happy New Years!
New year. Fresh start.
Speaking of fresh, let your skin breathe :] Walnuts, blueberries, and yogurt are all extremely good for your skin, and taste good too!

Making any New Years Resolution? I have a couple easy ones for you. [They can relate to fashion, or you in general.]

1. Be Unique. [Everyone says this, but seriously. Don't do certain stuff just because others are doing it. Or, don't wear certain things since other people are wearing the exact same things. At least find a good rolemodel!] Many of you are already confident and proud of yourself, but still....I'm encouraging everyone.]

2. Show it. [Maybe those random spazzy dress-up moments don't have to be just suited for "dress up" time. Trust me, I know you have those times.]

Thats Hauttte Fashion says you better be dressing beyondd standard when we have to go back to school. We'll be watching in a non-stalker way :]

Any predictions for 2008? In the real fashion industry, 2007 went colorful, surreal, modern, sleek, sparkly. Very "in your face". Since our school proves to always be one step slower, lets see what happens in '08. ;)

Gossip Girl? I think not. ; Thats Hauttte Fashion's Way.

Hey. I'm not here to gossip. I'm just here to give suggestions and spread what I know .

So for those of you copying me. Sure. Are you actually interested in this? Are you apprenticing and making clothes? Are you using your hands and sewing and cutting patterns? (So tedious, by the way) Are you studying the mastership of designers before you? Probably not. But, I don't want to diss your blog. But good luck all the same :]

1. Think about your outfits! At the end of the school year we'll see some of the good examples we've had this year :] Be snap-happy and take pictures. Don't forget to save your pictures. Think like a "teen-vogue" featured girl/guy, but from PCFC. [Don't know what I'm talking about? visit TeenVogue.com/connect]

2. Runway; Spring 2008. How would you incorporate the runway styles into your own wardrobe? I'll help you get started. Here's two examples.

Anna Sui; Spring 2008

Blouses; Forever21, Wet Seal
Vest; Urban Outfitters
High Waisted Pencil Skirts; Urban Outfitters, Topshop

DKNY; Spring 2008

Dresses; Urban Outfitters
Long-Sleeve shirt; Forever21
Belt; American Apparel

Nice little posts are over :]. I'm not going to tell you what to wear. I'm not going to say you shouldn't do this or that, because personally, even I'm definitely not completely satisfied with my own style. STILL...
If you think about it, there's one shoe that fits the category "colorless and shapeless" but walking into my school I must see 123456765432 of them a day. Do you know what I'm talking about yet? It's The Uggs. Sure, they're comfy. They're also always paired with jeans/jean skirts or sweatpants. You know that you can't argue that the original ugg, yeah that one that everyone has, is colorless and shapeless. Come on. Look at it...blahh.
If you're going to spend about $120 for these comfortable lumps of beige sheepskin, at least do it in some creative way. If you absolutely HAVE to buy these, or if you're keeping the ones that a million of you already have, ditch those plain jeans once the weather lightens up, and go for some colorful interesting tights. Don't forget a skirt, pants, shorts, bermudas, SOMETHING on top of those tights. I'm begging you. Or, get unique jeans (I'm not going to tell you how to do that. Helllooo keyword UNIQUE) Add accesories, and if you’re daring, sharpie your Uggs. Think cute, but statement-making. There's actually tons of easy ways that you can turn your precious clump of tan into something that I can actually call shoes.

Hmmm solutions. These tights/leggings are freaking awesome. I dare you.:

[Urban Outfitters; American Apparel]

Spot the Fake?!

In a world full of ebay liars, loud cheap fleamarket vendors, and too many "Made in China" tags than I want to see, there are so many fakes out there. Fake purses, fake designer clothes, fake sports jerseys, fake drugs, fake people, and too much more to list. Can you spot the fake? Do you have a fake? Are you a fake yourself? That is the question.
Try these quizzes from the internet, have fun, and don't be a fake! ;]


I'll even tell you my score if you tell me your score...

Merry Christmas :]

Merry Christmas!

Bored of all the cheesy holiday songs? I'm currently listening to: "Mistletoe" Colbie Caillat

Anyways, it snowed today! Except it didn't stick at all and was more of the...slushy variety.
If you're disappointed, do what my sister and I do when we're disappointed and/or bored. DIY easy-enough-for-a-ten-year-old-to-prepare-for-you-if-you-bribe-her-nicely spa. :] Do you have random leftover ingredients from your massive Christmas dinner? Got some carrots laying around in the veggie compartment of your refridgerator? Cook some carrots (2-3), then mash. Mix with honey (about 4 tsp.). Apply gently to your skin, wait 10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. It's that easy! (Oh, sorry. I didn't mean to sound like those creepy salesmen on TV. Can I sound like a cheesy salesman one more time? "Your skin will thank you!") Instead of carrots you can also use one mushed up apple, and BAM now you have an apple face mask; good for oily or acne prone skin. :]

A couple more random tips, create a spa-like environment. Add a towel pillow under your head (just a rolled up towel), put relaxing music on, make sure your siblings don't steal your camera and take blackmail pictures, lay down, and dream of snow!

Recently a group of friends and I attended this Christmas-related banquet. Beforehand, we were all freaking out about what to wear. [What colors, pants, skirts, dresses, where to buy this stuff, should we match with our guy friends? blah blah blah.] This was supposed to be one of those “no jeans, semi-formal” events. I realized that there are so many events that are so called semi-formal”, but what is semi formal? (Trust me, this question is as important as “What is the meaning of life”. To teenage girls at least)
So based on my experiences and opinions so far, this is what I have to say about NTWFSFE syndrome. [NothingToWearForSemiFormalEvents syndrome. Long syndrome name, but hey, I made it up just now so how am I supposed to think of some cool medical name for it?!)

1. According to my school orchestra teacher (yes, orchestra teacher…) a No Jeans event is also called business casual. A simple way to wear “business” casual is black dress pants and a pretty top. My suggestion for a "semi-formal" top is something with no logos, no pictures, don't bare a lot of skin, and either solid colors or a bold print. Black shoes always go with black pants. Be simple. Just do me a favor and not wear white socks. Please. [If you happen to be totally against black dress pants, my tip is to go for black yoga pants that fit. I know somebody who borrowed yoga pants for a formal event from someone else, nobody noticed they weren't dress pants, and she still hasn't given them back to the original owner! *COUGH COUGH SHE WANTS HER PANTS BACK*:)]

Dress Pants: Macy's. Yoga Pants: Old Navy.

2. Of course, dresses always work. If you want to blend in, wear dresses that are around knee length. Toss on a cute sweater. BAM. Perfect semi-formal event outfit. However, I know that alot of people are afraid of their looks being too formal, or too casual. Add leggings, tights, layer with tanktops or camis underneath, add a short or long sweater on the outside. There. You're neither formal, nor casual. Perfection.
Still have NO IDEA? First off, a good looking simple black dress can be found anywhere. Even Target! Try layering with sparkly tanktops underneath the dress (I found my gold sparkly tanktop at Express), if you want to make it more casual-ish, add leggings or tights (American Apparel, Macy's, Urban Outfitteres, etc.etc.), and instead of a jacket, add a cropped sweater or shrug.

Simple semi-formal example:

From left: Forever 21, Express, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21.

Now if only I could shorten down my definition so that it wouldn't take 193823 trees to fit in a dictionary.....

Ever thought about that?

"That's Hauttte Fashion"

As my very first post, I think it's fair that I explain why I made a blog...random stuff like that. First of all, the name. I'm definitely NOT some Paris Hilton wannabe. There's actually a story behind my name....

[Once upon a time] I went to a summer camp and met a Korean fob (Urban dictionary def.:Fob (Fresh Off tha Boat)- You were not born in AmericaYou speak your native language fluently and so do all your friends- You do not have any non-Asian friends- Your parents do not speak any English- When you speak English, you like to make everything pluralYour fashion sense comes from whatever country you're from and you incorporate nothing from American fashion into your wardrobe) who talked...well...differently. To him, everything was "hot" and whenever there was an awkward silence moment, you can always count on him to be that one voice saying "that's hott!!" (Notice the two t's in hott for added emphasis) Anyways, fast forward to two weeks later. My friends and I are at the local mall, and who calls me but the fob from summer camp! (don't worry, to him being FOB was a compliment). We ended up eating dinner with him when *dun dun dun* his friends walk in the restaurant. There's three of them, they all look the same, have black bold-rimmed glasses, they all have a high-tech cell phone in one hand and one earphone in an ear. All identical to my Fob. One certain friend and I were suppressing laughter, especially when my Fob goes "That's hot" in his little accent. (so it sounds more like "That's hooooooott" I hope my fob has never heard of Paris Hilton. Now, "That's hott" is one inside joke that will sadly stick for quite awhile...

Back to my actual blog name. "That's hott" (a huge inside joke; plus it's sort of a catchy phrase) was changed to "haute" to make it more elegant, two more t's were added for emphasis, and fashion was added at the end because THAT is what my blog is about, but forgive me if I ever get off topic. Thus, "That's Hauttte Fashion"

The end. :]
