Dream Denim: RE/DONE

If you’ve been following Huckleberry Kim (Hi, Mom!), you’ll know that I have this weird thing about pants.  And you know what, I was right all along. When the right pants come along y’all… Last week, I stumbled into Curve on Fillmore with no intentions of meeting anyone, but there they were…these great patchwork RE/DONE jeans […]

B’s first Huckleberry Haircut

Ever since I was a teenager, I often gave my friends life-changing haircuts. At University, most of them compensated me with a bottle of cheap wine that we’d share while I was cutting his/her hair (talk about trust…or more likely, we were just university students at Berkeley with little money & zero f*cks? lol) I haven’t done a […]

Donating Hair For a Good Cause

I have a big family, and we all love to get together to catch up, laugh, and eat — Great memories are always made. Today, we met up for a barbecue, where the kids could run around and play; and the adults could stroll around the beautiful lake and catch up on all the latests. […]

We Put On (Real) Pants Today

Once upon a time, I was sixteen and wrote my college application essays about how I wanted to study economic development at UC Berkeley so I could start a minimalist apparel line with priorities of social consciousness and ecological consciousness in production.  Then, I could share my love for fashion & design with the world, while providing new […]

DIY Marble Top Table

I recently moved into a new place and have been searching for the #allTheThings and was absolutely thrilled when I found the Eames DCMs in Navy (similar) pictured below.  These babes have been my dream dining chairs for sometime so I was happy to commit to them without yet having a table in mind… plus, I’ve […]

Sunset Sunset

Whether we wake up at dawn to climb up to a rooftop in Chelsea, climb over fences into the East River, or climb up steep San Francisco hills, Mitch and I have made some epic sunrise shoots happen over the last few years.  A few weeks ago, we were back on the west coast again, and this time […]

east river sunrise

There’s nothing like the stillness of sunrise over the city. You know: before the elders start their in-park tai chi, before your best friend has to wake up to take her dogs out, while everyone’s still snugglin’. Climbed over into a troll dwelling in the east river for this for-fun shoot…because sometimes it’s nice to […]

Power Heels

There is something truly wonderful about wearing high heels.  They make you stand taller (so you can tower over your frienemies), and they generally force better posture.  I came across this wonderful Racked article called, “The Male-Dominated, Power-Hungry History of High Heels”, which goes in depth about the origin of high heels – noting the air of regality, confidence […]

Elephant Grey

We were joking calling me a “chic monk” in my flowy greyscale outfit while we were shooting some sunrises ago – what can I say, I like to drift around comfortably. Though while looking through some digi & film selects from M, I started listening to Elephant and realized that in everything I do and with everything I […]

Fall for Everything: Transitional Layering

I love the summertime.  It’s so fun, carefree, romantic, and warm (clearly); after all, people get so into it that they write songs about summertime emotions that they feel.  But we’re moving on, year; aren’t we?  Don’t get stuck.  Don’t get left behind. There are merits to autumn as well – one of my favorites is […]
