Classy, sexy and versatile, this fashion lover is all about channeling a Miranda Kerr style, and that is to always look so well put together!
Of all the blog names you might have stumbled upon, the hapa in www.hapatime.com might draw a blank on you because it sure did with us. It turns out that it’s a sort of slang that means mixed descent/half as how Jessica – a half Japanese, half British/German – would prefer to be called (over Eurasian/halfie/half-asian).
The 27-year-old beauty lives in the Northern (South) Bay Area of California and took her first step into the fashion blogging world when she stumbled upon Chictopia in 2011. For those who think it’s easy, it isn’t, but for Jessica, she believes it’s worth it because of her love for shopping and her desire to inspire others to dress well and thoughtfully.
Blogging has taken up much of her time and energy, but she still does part-time work as a graphic designer and web editor for an online software company. And luckily for us (and you), we managed to get a little hapa time with Jessica and asked her for all her style tips!
female (f): You have tons of gorgeous shoes! Any fave brands?
Jessica (J): My favourite shoe brands are GUESS and Aldo coz they have the perfect in-style pieces every season and they’re affordable too! But if I could affort Stuart Weitzman and Christian Louboutin, maybe I would change my mind. :)
