One Year of Blogging!

Sunday, November 23, 2014


It's time to get sappy because today officially marks one year since I published my first post to Looks by Lau! This has by far been one of the most unexpectedly exciting and rewarding experiences I've ever had, and I couldn't be more thankful for everyone involved. What started as a series of Instagram mirror pictures has become a community in which I constantly feel supported. Thank you so much to those of you who take the time to read my blog posts and leave such sweet comments. I could not be continuing along this journey without you. Here's to the first year of the best hobby of my life and many more! I cannot wait to see what is still in store.

Skirt: c/o Boohoo
Coat: Forever 21
Heels: Forever 21 (old)
Bag: ASOS

Today's outfit is the perfect representation of how my style has evolved since the beginning. I started off with much less confidence and a tendency to compare myself to fellow bloggers. While I am still working on this, I am now more comfortable with a personal style that is uniquely me. It is no surprise that New York has influenced my [lack of] color preferences, so pieces like this Boohoo grid print skirt allow me to play with these monochromatic looks.  Combined with the oversized blazer coat, this look is representative of my tendency to walk the line between femininity and edge.

In celebration of one year, I've also teamed up with Boohoo to host a giveaway for my lovely readers! Boohoo has not only been one of my favorite online stores, but also a tremendous supporter of my blogging endeavors. I have been able to attend some fantastic events and meet other fabulous bloggers with this support and could not think of a better brand with to partner with. One lucky winner will receive a $50 credit to Boohoo.com by following the simple rules below:

GIVEAWAY RULES:

1. Follow @boohooofficial & @christinalau_ on Instagram.
2. Leave a comment on the giveaway photo telling me what you are thankful for this year.

[ Tag a friend in your comment for an extra entry! ]

The winner will be randomly selected on Wednesday, November 26 just in time for Black Friday shopping. Good luck, and thank you again for your support!
