Simply Shirt & Jeans // Give-away Gift

Look # 1.
Rick Owens jacket, Fallon necklace, J Brand jeans, Ysl boots.
Look # 2
RO jacket, Annie Costello Brown necklace, J Brand jeans, Balmain suede boots.

Look # 3

Club Monaco and Marc by Marc Jacobs scarves, Ann D 14 buckles belt (the belt can fully buckle), J Brand jeans, Givenchy boots. Every time, I wear this belt and I remember Martina. She owns one and said “I can’t breath” when she wears it. Well, to be honest, it’s little hard to breath…We love it, so we sacrifice for fashion 😉

Hi everyone,

Anyway, are you ready for Christmas? How are you doing with your Christmas shopping? I still have a long way to finish. December is a very exciting month….Let’s make it even more exciting, Life-in-Travel has a give-away gift. This is the last gift of the year in appreciation of my fabulous readers who have been supporting my blog. Without you my blog would be nothing. It means a lot to me. This time, the give-away gift is $125 cash and everyone can enter by simply submitting a comment. I will randomly pick a winner and it will be announced on the next post. Make sure to leave your name. GOOD LUCK to you all!!!

  1. Just think of yourself as ageless, thats what I do. It is really what I have always done.

    When you are ageless you transcend time. When you have style, you also transcend time.

    The kids are going to grow. I don't have any, but I have nieces, and they are transforming before my eyes. :( Alas new adventures will come as they get bigger, same as with your cute girls.

    I love that second Rick Owens jacket. (something that will also transcend time) That bag is great too.

    Happy holidays

  2. I love your outfits :) I think you look fabulous for having had two children! You have nothing to worry about and your girls are beautiful too.

  5. I hate it when the year ends, but I love Christmas and New Years (and Halloween and Thanksgiving.. haha) so the end of the year is kind of bittersweet for me, but definitely more sweet.

    Hope you have an AMAZING Christmas!

  6. Hi Hahn,

  7. In response to something you wrote a few weeks ago, I find your writing charming, grammar mistakes and all. In fact, the (very small) errors add to the sense of your voice and you as a person.

    And I like to come by and covet the high-fashion pieces in your wardrobe.

  8. I just found your blog a couple of weeks ago, its very informative and fashion forward, very fun! I too love to travel and love all your amazing travel shots, I wish I had been to all those lovely places you have visited.

  15. I must say that I absolutely love your blog! When I read your posts is like reading a fashion magazine! exciting! And if I don't comment on post usually, that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy reading them.
    Happy holidays to you and your beautiful family!

  16. I can't decide which outfit I love the best! Maybe the last one, as the belt adds a certain – well, amazingness 😉 – to the shirt & jeans combo.

    And how kind of you to offer a Christmas gift for your readers! :)

  17. That's really generous of you! Thanks for offering a giveaway for your readers!

    I love all your outfits. May I know where is the bag on the 2nd outfit from?

    Merry Christmas and may you and your family have a blessed year ahead!

  18. My favourite item of clothing, that keeps reappearing in all your posts is you Ann D. belt!

    it is a sublime piece, and you wear it with endless versatility!

    i always look forward to you mixing clothes i have seen from your previous post with your new ones!


  19. didn't know that jeans and black and white combination could be so enchanting, gonna try it next time as i thought black and white are more for formal attire and jeans are supposedly to be casual.

    yeah, you are right, i wanna get older too and and i don't want parents to grow old too. there's still tons of things to do and experience but with the life span a human has, i doubt anyone could really do everything. therefore, i've decided to just sit at home and relax (sorry, just an excuse to be lazy -__-)

  20. Oh Hanh! That belt look so well on you!
    I have just remembered when I first read one of your posts some months ago, and your outfits fascinated me.. Your photographs always do it!!
    Love the belt so much! I wish I had it!

  21. hanh- i love all the lookbook outfits!
    black and white is always classy and timeless.
    it's an outfit that everyone should have.

    haha.. have to sacrifice for the sake of fashion.
    it's just like to have a sexy body, it requires an effort
    and sacrifices too. hayyy, it's really not easy just to be
    physically sexy.

    wow, you're so generous! giveaway sounds great here.
    good luck to the one who will one.

    have a great morning!

  23. from seeing pictures of your mother i dont think you have to worry about aging too much 😉

    i love the double layered scarves, esp. that blue striped one. i really like all the outfits with the white shirt, it's such a versatile piece.

  24. I really like the Rick Owens jacket from outfit #2. beautiful! I've never commented before but I always read your blog, it's great, keep up the awesome blogging!

  25. Hey Hanh,
    I love the 1st and 2nd look!!~
    but the 3rd look has a bit of flaws, because i think the 2 scarves are sort of overwhelming on your frame when they are paired with such a complicated belt.
    Happy Early Xmas to you:)

  26. Hanh!! This is one of your best posts, it's like lookinga at a magazine spread. I love all the outfits, can I borrow your RO jacket in the second set of photos? thanks!!

    Good luck with Christmas shopping :)

  27. You are right! 2009 is almost over and 2010 is just around the corner. I remember last year I was so excitef for 2009 to start because I was graduating but now I barely even think about it and I don't want 2009 to end!

  28. I Love!! Look #2!! I haven't even thought about what I am going to buy for Christmas, much less buy it!!! Where does the time go?!

    Thanks for always being so generous!

  29. I love how you combine your outfits and make them look so effortless. I don't know how you do it, but I REALLY need to learn your tricks on how to wear heels everyday. I wear them for just 2 hours and my feet are just flat out dead lol.

  30. Looking fabulous as always, Hahn! I adoooore your Balmain boots! Classic looks are the best and you pull them off flawlessly. Merry Christmas to you and your entire family! :)

  31. Goodness, Hanh, some of your outfits are truly mind-blowing!!! I'm sitting here and trying to get over the sight of this crazily amazing belt… Omg!

  32. Hanh, I have been a silent lurker for this blog. I discovered your blog a couple of months ago. Now, your blog is one of the top 5 to read first when I log in to my computer. I so want to own the Rick Owens jacket, it's fabulous! Well, maybe someday 😉

    Thank you for keeping the blog alive! For showering the readers with updated pictures, recipes and life lessons! All the best for you in 2010! I'll be your reader! Cheers!

  33. Hi Hanh! :) I still aspire to own a shoe collection like yours one day! After schooling, right? What a great post! I love all the looks! Especially that belt. Yes, what we do for fashion!

    As for Christmas shopping, I've barely started!

  63. Hi Hanh!

    I love your first look. It is simple, wearable for everyday, yet elegant and the YSL shoes really makes the outfit stand out. :)

  65. Hello, Hanh!

    As always your sense of style astounds me. You've just made a simple white button down still look fabulous with the right jacket, belt and shoes. Throw in those beautiful scarves too.

    Merry Christmas in advance! :)

  66. Love the Ann D. belt. I would love to see you wear it fully buckled since I have never seen anyone wear it that way. You ARE beautiful and ageless, hope you enjoy your holidays! Alyson

  67. Absolutely love all these looks! And the third is phenomenal….I would steal that belt from you in a heartbeat 😉

    Love your sense of styling gorgeous girl!

    Have a great week :)

  68. I'm always amazed whenever you wear the Ann D. belt out. When I saw it on the runway, I never thought that it would work in real life, but you've shown that it can work when combined with lots of confidence.

  69. Saw you featured on as "Look of The Day" and thought hey that's Hahn. You have an impeccable sense for quality and design. Love it.

  70. Hi Hanh! I like what the first commenter said…lets think of ourselves as ageless! You look absolutely stunning, as always! I love all three looks, and I can't pick a favorite. :-) Merry Christmas to you and your family…and have fun Christmas shopping for your two sweet girls!

  71. I've been following your blog for a while, love your style and your outlook on life, it's very inspiring! I must say that the Rick Owens jacket is to die for! Don't worry about age, you look fabulous!

    Thanks for the gift, please sign me up. Happy Holidays to you and all your family!!!


  72. As always, love your looks. I've been wanting to try out JBrand jeans – are they really as great? Also – keep up the blog. You've been doing great and you are one of my favorite bloggers!

  73. You are really inspirational to me that such a strong beautiful woman can have success and a beautiful family.

    Thank you so much for sharing your adventures!

    Posey x

  74. It normally takes me a long time to warm up to litle children,
    but for some reason,
    you're constant updates and pictures on them are making them grow on me XD

  75. Wow Hanh, you're getting a lot of comments for this one… a very tempting gift 😉 I hope you're doing well and I can't believe time is flying so fast either!

  77. Love the booties in your first look 😀 I frequent your blog because its awesome to see some stylish Viet people ^^ you are an inspiration


  78. Lovely Blog. I must say I've read your entire blog within the past week. Keeps me entertain on my down time at college. I must say my favorite posts are ones with food involved ^.^

  79. you seem to be ageless so don't worry about getting older! and you ROCK that belt!!! hope you and your family have an amazing holiday :)

  80. Hi Hanh, I hope you don't mind me asking… what size is your Givenchy Nightingale bag? Is it a medium or a large? I ordered a large and thinking it might be too big for me….

    Thanks for your help!!

  81. I was inspired the last time you wore the corset belt, and picked up a (smaller) version last time I was out shopping. I even tried wearing it partially unbuckled, but I think that is a look you pull off much bettter!

  82. It's solely hard to believe but it's true, time is the essence of our lives yet it passes so quickly and before YOU know it is of yesterday. Yet every adventure keeps us revolving into new directions making new friends in a world that's actually small! – THANKS for your FABULOUS adventures and style!:))

    It's very generous of you to be giving away such a gift, good luck to one and all!


  85. Hanh,

    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones :) Thank you for a years worth of inspirational outfits and destinations!

    Wishing you a wonderful New Year :)

  86. I always like your outfits, this time #2 and 3 are my faves. You're such and inspiration. Wishing you and your family a lovely Christmas time -your kids are the best-.

  87. The way you layered those scarves in look 3 is awesome! And that bag you're carrying in 2 is ridiculously cute. Which designer is it?

    I think it's really generous for you to be giving out so much for a giveaway! :O Thank you, regardless of if I win or not (I have bad luck with these things so I'm really not expecting it, haha.)

    I've always wanted to get a zebra-print bag but I never knew how to pair it up… you've given me some ideas. :)

  88. Hi! I love your blog; whenever I need to take a break from studying I come here :) Your outfits are so inspiring and the posts about your daughters are so cute.

  89. I love all the looks you posted! 'Tis my first time to stumble upon your blog and I LOVE IT. Hope this discovery gives me good luck! 😉

  90. hey there darling,

    how have you been? any plan for christmas? I am going to niseko for a month!!!!

    I love your blog, keep doing it please!

    love, Valerie

  91. wow! I love all of this three looks, but my favorite is surely the last one. you're wearing 3 pieces I love so much: the buckled belt, the givenchy nightingale and the booties… just perfection!!!

    big hugs!

  92. Wow you sure are rich! Maybe you should think kids around the world who are starving each day during this holidays instead of giving it away to your reader who is warm in their house reading your blog. You can feed a family of 4 for a month with this small amount. And by the look of your closet, you can feed 1000 family a year by cutting it in half. Just think about it. I guess I won\\\'t win, but if I do I will donate to whom actually needs it.

  93. WOW!!!! Love all your looks, Hanh! I miss you around my blog! Hope everything's fine on your side!!! And WOW to your generous giveaway! It's really amazing how you're always so generous with your gifts and I'm always inspired and motivated by your generous actions! Thank God! Christmas is all about waiting on the Lord and to generously die to ourselves to give to others. I can truly see that in you and I thank God for that! May God bless you and your family always :)))

    HOPE I WIN!!! Lol I've been entering your giveaways for so long but never have any luck! Shucks I think I need more than just luck, lol!

    Merry Christmas in advance!!!

    Join in my Christmas giveaway too, although it's nothing like yours :)
