Anchyi Adorned‘s Anchyi Wei is a designer and artist who uses fashion as an outlet for her art. What started as coworkers snapping pics of her outfits turned into a go-to site where area stylesetters follow along with her take on style, which veers toward boundary-breaking outfits.
Creative individuality is key. I’m always on opposite ends of the extreme: high and low, maximalism and minimalism, avant garde and vintage. Whatever I choose, I make a statement.
Makeup you can’t live without
Most of my makeup now comes from Whole Foods—the Mineral Fusion line is EWG (Environmental Working Group) verified, a standard resource I use for health and wellness. They also give back to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. It’s a no-brainer for me.
Bucket list place for travel
Peru/Machu Picchu is super high on the list.
Best Instagram shoot spot in NoVA
Currently obsessing with Isabella Eatery. Although I haven’t been to Mosaic District yet, there’s a giraffe mural there that keeps popping up on my Instagram. Interior decor wise, the developments over at Upper West in One Loudoun are truly stunning.

Favorite NoVA shopping spot
Go-to outfit or clothing item
This definitely involves white shoes. They make any outfit pop and look instantly cooler. I like to wear them with a long dress or casually with frayed jeans and a sweater.
Favorite accessory you can’t stop wearing
Hats are the easiest way to look stylish while not having to do hair. The Ruslan Baginskiy baker boy hats have been a celebrity favorite—the structured look dresses up any outfit instantly.
