Tis’ The Season

My holiday arm candy this year, wanted to keep it festive with lots of crystal and sparkle!

Some of my favorite wraps from our Holiday 2012 collection

Hope all you Chan Luu lovers have a Happy New Year!

Rose Gold

Once a passé and sort of tacky looking metal has recently manifested itself into my wardrobe. Guess that is how fashion works.. always recycling itself. Make sure to never get rid of those outdated trends you never thought you would wear again (dare I even say to save the jean skirt? I would…) Like platforms, bell bottoms and tattered up jeans, rose gold has made its way back onto the fashion scene and I don’t think it’s going anywhere for a while. If you think about it, it is the perfect metal for those who do not like to mix metals. While some may be wary about mixing gold with silver, ease your way into mixed metals by experimenting with rose gold- which compliments silver and gold alike.

Against the Wall

It is finally getting chilly in Los Angeles, which means tights and booties and faux fur are an attainable part of my wardrobe again! Today, I chose my pleated leather skirt,  amazing faux fur Muubaa jacket, denim shirt, and a crop top-since it’s still not that cold ;)

Extremely obsessed with my new Swarovski Crystal Bracelet in Crystal Silver Night on Natural Grey leather!  The second I tried it on my wrist, I knew it had found its home.  Get the bracelet here:  This bracelet was also picked by InStyle Magazine for their Holiday Gift Guide! Check it out here:,,20644180_21235392,00.html#21235393

My other current favorite is my Black-White Tibetan Agate necklace with charms at the bottom.  This piece has become a staple around my neck! Check it out here:

Also layered in the necklace mix is this men’s Black-White Tibetan Agate necklace with a small ring at the bottom. I often find myself adorning the men’s necklace collection!  This particular piece is great to layer with my other Black-White Tibetan Agate necklace!  Check it out here:

Melrose Market

Every Sunday in Los Angeles, they have an amazing flea market off Melrose. I love going for the antiques, and beautiful art paintings and pictures.

Being that Gone with the Wind is one of my favorite movies, and Scarlett O’Hara is somewhat of an idol of me, I had to buy this picture of her from the movie. “After all, tomorrow is another day”

Damnoen Sakuak Floating Market.

Hand stitched Hmong fabric I found. Bought a beautiful bead spread and a few bags made from this colorful patchwork fabric.

Inspiration for new Jane Tran Hair Accessory designs :)

BEST street food was in Bangkok.

Designing new styles with our Vendor in Thailand.

Took a cooking class in Chiang Mai. Learned how to make Tom Yum soup, Pad See Ew, and Panang Curry.

Zip lining thru the jungle in Chiang Mai.

In Koh Samui, and off to the beach on Thanksgiving!

Was able to get some tennis in! Haven’t picked up a racket since college.

Snorkeling near Angthong Island.

Newest addition to my apartment. Bought a sitting hammock hand made by the Mlabri tribe. Read about the Mlabri tribe here, and check out their hammocks!

My vacation necklace-nest and bracelet-stack!

Charm necklace

Classic silver nugget wrap bracelet

Friendship bracelets

Single gold wrap bracelet

I had such an amazing time filled with Night Markets, street food, and beautiful beaches. I would recommend everyone to visit Thailand if they are looking for an adventure!

Chan is always recreating her classic wrap bracelet.  Every time new wrap bracelets arrive I have the hardest time deciding which new style is my favorite, but I have finally decided!

I love this bracelet because it is a great update to the classic sterling silver on leather wrap bracelet. I think the knots give this clean wrap and edgy look complementing my favorite wrap bracelet of all time, the onyx and sterling silver skull wrap on leather.

Similar to the one I am wearing, check out this skull wrap!

Another beautiful afternoon outside of our New York showroom!
