SS12 Preview of the Yoyo Yeung Collection

I had the pleasure of previewing the Spring and Summer 2012 collection: YOUNG by Yoyo Yeung at the Cooper Building (as well as pieces from the 2011 collections). It was held in the showroom and was rather an intimate affair. Fellow bloggers and I enjoyed gabbing, viewing the line and munching on cupcakes and treats; as well as having some champagne. I really enjoyed seeing the line and wanted to go on a shopping spree and fill my closet with ethereal dresses, sequin tops, the cutest romper EVER, a simple black spaghetti-strap maxi dress with drawstring waist, adorable lace sheer maxi skirt, sequin harem pants and flowy tops. The inspiration for Yoyo’s SS12 collection was ‘mother nature’ and the elements: water, Earth and sun. Yoyo goes on to describe the collection, “The power of water and its turquoise color is captured in the styles that accentuate a woman’s body-romantic and sexy, yet edgy and expressional. The power of the sun, its light and glamour comes through sequins and silk designs. The feeling of softness, femininity and sensuality of sand is beautifully captured in draped, floaty pieces.” Yeung stays true to her words. Every element was clearly seen that evening of the preview- from the ‘sandy’ sequin harem pants and tops to the flowy sleeveless water-like print blue dress.

It’s no wonder YOUNG has a celebrity following, such as Nicole Scherzinger and Kyle Richards. YOUNG is designed for the jet-setting, sophisticated woman in mind. Her clothes are perfect for the office, as well as an easy transition to a red carpet event. YOUNG by Yoyo Yeung can be found at Bella Rosa in Los Gatos, CA, The Beehive in Manhattan Beach, CA and Kitson in Los Angeles CA. If you’d like more information, please check out their website, here. They are also on Twitter and Facebook.

I want to give a huge thanks to Brandi and the team at Yoyo Yeung for your gracious hospitality! Yasmine, Rachael (check out her blog- Ordinarily Urbane) and the team at Bollare. I wanted to give a shout-out to Teresa and Emily of The Style Map, Carrie, Ari of La Catrina, Jill Pineda (check out her handmade bow ties!), Kiara of Tobruck Ave., Chanelle of The Penelope Times and Kelly of BussBuss. Ladies, let’s do this again, shall we?

2012 Tasty Awards

I had the pleasure of attending the 3rd Annual Taste (TASTY) Awards at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. The TASTY Awards celebrate the year’s achievements in food, fashion and home lifestyle. There was a pre-show red carpet and reception, as well as an after party, featuring samplings of chocolates, toffee from Toffee Talk, quinoa beet salad, cranberry bread, Think Thin bars, etc.
