Kim Yu Na

I just watched Kim Yu Na's long program, and her performance was amazing. Here's the link to the video.

For her short program, she performed to a James Bond song wearing a bedazzled ensemble. She has so much charisma.

For her long program, she wore an elegant and timeless ensemble in azure. I like how she decided to go for a simple, understated look with minimal make-up. Her beauty naturally shines through as she glides across the rink. South Korea's pride must be bursting at the seams now. I cannot even imagine the immense pressure Kim Yu Na had for the past couple of months (or even years) leading up to this major event. She definitely carried herself well under pressure.

Fighting! She was born to skate.

Trina Turk Jewelry

My favorite Los Angeles-based designer, Trina Turk, released her very own jewelry line recently. Ms. Turk is well-known for her unique prints and flattering designs.

I love the coral and turquoise colors - very tropical.

I love it when designers reinvent themselves. Trina Turk's jewelry line definitely complements her apparel.

Singin' in the Rain

In Los Angeles, we don't get much rain. So when it rains, it feels like it pours. But we need all the water we can get because of the drought. I don't have the proper gear for this kind of weather. If I had it my way, I would go out to a Burberry store and buy a trench coat like the one Audrey Hepburn wears in Breakfast at Tiffany's. But this is nonsensical when there are so many inexpensive alternatives.

This Old Navy rain coat comes in several different bright colors to make your day more cheerful.

Banana Republic has a crinkled leather jacket. If you have a faux leather jacket, you can wear that since the material is water-proof.

For more brilliant ideas, go to LA Times article on rain gear.
