11 style questions

I got nominated by Alyssa from Living In Style OC to answer 11 Style questions. I first discovered Living In Style OC on Instagram and we quickly emailed soon after. She even was my blogger host for my Serene Sky Boutique summer event in June held in Huntington Beach. Since then, we’ve attended fashion events in OC. Such a sweet and pretty gal!

1. If you could take only 3 items from your closet what would they be. 

These items aren't in my closet per se but in my bedroom: 
- I  definitely have to take my rings. I never leave the house without my engagement ring and wedding band plus my new brass ring from New York that I received as an anniversary present. I have other rings hubby has gifted me that have sentimental value.

- I would grab my teddy bear since I had it since high school or college.

- I would need all my beauty products. I love make up and can never leave the house without make up on. My all time favorite is Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation and my new favorite is Manna Kadar Cosmetics Manna Babe Lip Locked.

2. Which fashion designer takes your breath away?
I have to say Monique Lhullier. I loved her when she was just known for wedding dresses. Her collection is always so feminine, effortless and modern. She uses lace in such an updated way yet I can see the influence from the Philippines. I’m also proud of her since she’s a Filipina designer.

3. What is your go to outfit when in a hurry?
I always reach for something black and white. It’s modern and classic. It works with all seasons. I love pairing my Zara skort with a black top and black sandals.

I also love grabbing a skirt and tank for an instant outfit paired with some jewelry. 

4. If you had the chance to partner with any designer, who would it be and why?
I love shoes so would love to collaborate with Brazilian shoe brand Schutz. My other favorite is designing with LA fashion designers Walter Mendez or Michael Costello. Their dresses are divine and are risk taking.

5. Who is your favorite blogger to follow?
I follow so many bloggers on social media from local ones to big time ones. On Instagram, follow @AllGlammedUp for her dreamy pink fashion and lifestyle photos and @macherechelsea for a Cali girl living in Paris viewpoint. I also love @SongofStyle  - not only for her style but because the girl can eat.

6. If you could switch spots with a celebrity for a day, who would you choose?
I think I would switch spots with Zac Posen. Not only can he cook and post great meals on Instagram, he’s a fashion designer and Project Runway judge. He looks like he’s able to balance it all.

7. What is your dream fashion/accessory purchase?
I would say every shoe from the Schutz brand. I love their lace up heels, peep toe booties to ankle strap heels. Their whole collection is perfection!

8. Name your 2 fall must haves?
- I love boots! Over the knee boots, ankle boots, booties, rain boots, sweater boots. They keep my feet warm and pull an outfit together.

- I would say my leather blazers. I have a cropped one and quilted leather one that I have been wanting to rock when it gets colder.

9. How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging since 2007. I cover fashion, food, and fun. In the beginning, I had more restaurant reviews but lately the focus has been on outfits, fashion event recaps, fashion crushes, and what I can’t live without. Check out one of my first posts on mochi ice cream .

10. What are 3 words that describe your blog?
Loving life

11. If you weren’t blogging what would you be doing?
I have been in the Internet and journalism space for 14 years working in project management, account director, writing, marketing and social media. . I currently own my own online boutique - ShopSereneSky.com and manage the company with my fashion team hailing from New York, Colorado and Huntington Beach.

If I weren’t blogging, I would love to have my own PR firm to market emerging designers. There is so much talent out there that needs to be discovered and publicized.


I now nominate my new blogger friend I met on Instagram yesterday Lisa Marie Favre from FabulousHabits.com. She’s from Canada and actually experiencing real Fall weather.  I’m officially jealous!
