Just 10 months ago my sister went into surgery to begin her process of getting cancer free. The chances were slim but there was still a chance that I might lose her to cancer. Not yet even 30, with cancer, a husband and 3 kids to care for, that was a lot for any person to take on. God works in so many ways to teach us all lessons that he hopes we carry on for life. I’ve never seen such a huge outpouring of support from our family and her legion of loyal friends rally behind her than ever before. I’m so happy she is still with us today and even more ecstatic to be celebrating her 30th year of life together. This shoot in itself shows such a support system being wholly sponsored by some of the people who love her most: Gwen, Tina, Anha, Nancy, Elvis, Robert and of course, ME! Join me in taking out a few minutes to truly appreciate the short amount of time we are given in this lifetime to spend with the people who mean most to us; and for me today, that’s KimChi. Happy 30th birthday to my beautiful little sister who really is not so little anymore.
You can see KimChi’s battle scar on her neck. She fought and beat cancer! Heck yah it’s another year of FABULOUS! Dress: Celine. Heels: YSL.
My favorite photo of the shoot. Dress: Dolce & Gabanna. Heels: Christian Louboutin.
You have to admit, this Rolls Royce is pretty pimp!
Check out those sexy legs and hot HOT snakeskin heels!
Ironically, for those of you who don’t know, KimChi is terrified of snakes. Yup, it’s her triple X “dirty thirty” year. Dress: Jerome Salaya Ang. Heels: YSL. Leather jacket: Versace for H&M. Make a wish sissy (or several)!
This behind the scenes video/slideshow of the shoot was specially put together by Nancy for KimChi.
