Hi! Im Alison Wu, the stylist, recipe developer, and lifestyle blogger behind Wu Haus. You may know me from my colorful dishes on my Instagram feed. Food is one of my favorite ways to express myself creatively. The recipes I make are a reflection of what inspires me daily, from the vibrant colors at the farmers market to the natural textures of the land.
But long before I even knew how to cook, as a young girl, I began using fashion as a way to express creativity. Over the years, influences like color, shape, texture, playfulness, and more have evolved my personal style to what it is today. In my 30s, Ive found a greater sense of confidence, which has empowered me to take more risks and have fun with what Im wearing.
This curated list is a sampling of what Im loving right now classic pieces, pops of color, and playful looks to mix and match and make your own. Many of the pieces are made of natural fibers and designed by female designers, who are a constant source of inspiration to me. From this guide, I hope you find the perfect gift for yourself or someone you love. Happy holidays!
