Minju Kim x H&M and Birchbox


When I heard about H&M's Design Award collection by Minju Kim, I was stoked. While I'm not normally the one to go for exaggerated silhouettes in my wardrobe, I do love seeing avant-garde designs (for the most part). So, the moment I saw this dress in the collection, I was in love. The pleats, the shape and the fit seemed way too good to ignore. I was fortunate enough to nab this dress in my size and was thankful it fit well!

I wore this to an event held by Birchbox a week ago where I was also fortunate to meet co-founder, Katia Beauchamp. She is one of the most inspiring women I have ever spoken with. I don't say that just to say it but, her story of success was incredible to hear in person. Even if I do nothing else in my blogging career, I will be forever grateful to have met some incredible people (not just her but other bloggers too!). 


P.S. I ended up curling my hair at the last minute...so you'll notice straight hair goes to curly hair in the photos! 







Thanks, Sarah for taking the photo! =)

  9. I think you can totally pull off that shape so well. On me, I would gain about 30 pounds. LOL. The pink pleats are a fun contrast too! <3

  26. Neon pink plus pale aqua looks so fantastic sharp, fun and fresh together. It's a great modern take on a beloved 1950s colour combo, and one that I must say, you look flat out amazing in, dear gal!
