Starting Things Off with Always Maylee

Well, hellooooooo!!! I just wanted to say hi and let you you guys know that I am in London this week, but I have some amazing friends helping me out over the next five days.

And this girl was my number one choice to start things off. Yi-Chia has become one of my closest blogging friends. Words cannot express how much I love her. One day we WILL meet in person, go shopping and stay up into the wee hours of the night catching up on all the years we missed before we became friends. Give her a big welcome. She deserves it!!


Hi Because Shanna Said So readers! I'm Yi-chia and I blog over at Always Maylee. I talk a lot about my shopping excursions, my unhealthy (but awesome) obsession with polka dots, my love for bright colors, and my life with my husband.  I'm so happy and honored to be guest posting for Shanna today while she is making all of us proud strutting her stuff in London for Wallis. Shanna is truly an inspiration and I just love that she made/is making her dreams come true!

Ever since I was young, I've loved fashion. I loved playing dress up and pretending I was a famous stylist, putting together outfits for my stuffed animals and dolls. They appreciated it, I know they did. Over the years every time I wore a new outfit, my dad always told me that I should do something related with fashion. It wasn't until last year, while browsing various fashion blogs and pinning things like crazy on Pinterest that I realized, hey maybe I could start a fashion blog too. My husband was so supportive and told me of course I could and should do this. So I did. And now a year later, my blog is doing really well and I've had the opportunity to work with some great brands. I'm not sure where my blog will lead me, perhaps I will globe trot with Shanna, maybe I will start my own boutique, or simply I will just continue to grow my blog. Either way, I'm happy that I now have this space where I can share my style and fashion ideas with everyone!
Thanks Shanna for letting me take over your blog today. We are all anxiously awaiting for your return and reading about your trip! In the meantime, come over to Always Maylee and say hi!
