About

Hi there! Welcome to Petiteflowerpresent.com!

Since we had cable television in China in the early 90’s, I started watching runway shows whenever I had the chance. Never for a million years, however, had I dreamed that I would be as close as I am today to fashion and all things related. My love for fashion is deeply rooted in my appreciation for colors, textures, shapes, and how combination of them could be so expressive and personal. Like any other art form, fashion is a way of self-expression. During the process of finding of things to wear and how to wear them, one finds his/her own voice. It is my biggest hope to use this blog as a platform, to discover and define my personal style, and to share this journey with you, my dear readers. Please feel free to comment and ask questions, I will try my best to answer.

A bit about myself — I was born and grew up in China. Came to the States over a decade ago to get my Master’s and hadn’t left since. Three things I will always enjoy: a gallery visit, a good movie and dinner with close friends. I also love travel, knitting and photography. Most of the pictures you see in this blog, unless noted otherwise, are taken by my husband as I “discovered” his hidden talent. 😀

I want to say a special Thank-You to people who made this blog possible: my family, my dear friends from the fashion forum and my friends from the photography club.

Love,

Petiteflower

      Thank you, Eileen!

      No, being a fashion blogger is as close to fashion industry as I’ve ever been. 🙂

      Thank you so much, dear! So glad to know my blurbing of how the outfits came together is actually helping. 🙂

    Nice blog – Could you please tell me where the trousers you are wearing on the cover of the Washingtonian Magazine come from?
    Thank You, Ann Cooper
