Tomi’s outfits

Take my breath away


When it comes to versatility, “Nothing beats denim,” some will say, but I must disagree- my years of experience in shopping and dressing tells me that if I had to pick one piece that goes with just about everything, it’s got to be a slip dress that’s dainty, featherweight…  It’s an easy yet versatile base…

Confessions of a Convoluted Mind


Do you ever feel like there’s just too much going on in your head that you are unable to choose which to share with the world? That’s me all the time. Life of an INTJ… No wonder I’m always so darn tired. I was thinking earlier today about the concept of “overthinking.” I mean, people refer…

Starting over


I don’t know which is better (or worse): to do wrong and not get caught yet never even realize that you’ve done wrong, or get caught immediately and receive punishment so that you never do it again.Just a few minutes prior to arriving at Arts District in Downtown LA for this shoot, for the first time…

Girl in New York


  So I don’t normally enjoy putting my hair up, especially with my forehead looking so naked. but since the photographer insisted, there it was, my poor forehead finally getting some Vitamin D.

Be still, my soul.

Public School Girl


Hi there. How are you guys. Sorry if my last post made you worry. Thankfully, I’m doing a lot better. Has it been a month already? or almost. The more I think about it, the more thankful I am for those who showed genuine concern for me. From the very bottom of my heart, thank…

In the midst of it all


Thanks to a job that considers travel top priority, I’ve had the pleasure of being in many parts of the world the past few years, among which Hong Kong tops in the field of Most Frequently Visited. This was probably the fifth time I was there (sorry, actually lost count somewhere along the way) and…
