Big shoulder + Mini !!!

This is a vintage evening jacket I found which is from St. John. I fall in love w/ that exquisite details of round plastic thing on top, the pattern in the background and the metallic sheen of it. It keeps me going back and forth to the store just to look at it. Finally I took the plunge to challenge a new look w/ it in my mind.




Normally I wouldn't look into their collection since I don't think they would go w/ my style. However, this way big size of 8 could be the perfect "big shoulder" style which I am up to!!

1.TOP:
  • Kenneth Cole wide collar short sleeves wool turtle neck
  • St. John evening jacket super large size 8
2. Bottom: i. Blues mini black skirt (Made in Italy)
3. Black hosiery
4. Shoes:
  • Nine west past season heels
  • Rudy's Black riding boots (bought in Paris)
5. Accessory:
  • Brass mini disc necklace
  • Elfi's design of 18 K gold w/jade n' round gold bead earrings(They have a matching necklace)
6. Chanel Dark Silver timeless Clutch Hawaii Exclusive


The jacket looks like made from snakeskin!!!!


Can you tell the big shoulder?



w/ heels


w/ boots which is more of me likie style!!

I LOVE THIS LOOK! It's so retro 70's glam! Excellent, excellent, excellent. I find it hard to believe that this vintage jacket is size 14. Talk about how vanity sizing has changed over the years and taken over...

Hello, kai:

I did some research of my Faberge necklace and I just realize how precious it is!! Thanks again.

Yes, if this is size 14 then I would think it is probably a cropped and very fitted blazer w/ its original design. I would never think of getting a size of 14 clothes if I didn't see it in person. haha...... just by thinking I am wearing size 0 to 4!!!!! haha.......

oh...Kai:
I just double checked the size of the jacket....it is size 8... I think that's about right. Otherwise I really start wondering how small/tight w/ size 2 will be then..haha.....

I love this outfit! I know you mentioned that you sometimes get ideas from Japanese magazines... Do you usually like looking at J magazines or American magazines for ideas?

Once again, sorry for the lag! =0) I will send you some cute icons right now! Let me know which ones you like!

Hi, Tammy:
I read runway magazine to update the trend. Mostly I read American mag. for "real" look since you know, runway look is too dramatic to wear.

Japanese mag. is only for finding cute things as they really know how to make little trinkets and just so adorable. When I travel back to Taipei, I look for things I saw from those Japanese mag.

This is such a surprise look from you, as I had never seen you with a 70s glam look. It's fantastic though because you manage to put a bit of modern twist to you. Kudos!

Do you own any other St. John pieces?

Still proper, Fendi leather skirt!

I worn my Fendi skirt to the city for dinner last night. San Francisco's weather is perfect for wearing leather anything.... It is almost windy all the time around the bay and I find leather is the best shield for blocking out brutal wind in the city. I even like it better than wearing a trench coat.  

Over the years I acquired enough leather jackets, leather mini skirt and leather pants but I'm lacking long leather skirt in my wardrobe. Not only is the fact that a good looking long leather skirt is hard to come by but also a thought that it might be cumbersome to move around in it. Hum..... but you know what, all these uncertainty is redundant the moment I see Fendi 2015 fall/winter runway leather long skirt with pony hair. Ha~ the right moment comes with the right item, I am grabbing it. If you know which one I am talking about, you know I got myself a double-shield wind-proof skirt. lol.... As you can see I'm very into Fendi especially Monster collection at this moment. …

How Life is ... How You Respond to it?

After almost a year and a half hiatus, I am back writing my blogs again. There are a lot of memorable activities that happened and I recently moved to another house, which I can say without a doubt, is my dream house. It has a nice swimming pool, great landscapes, and a media room in the basement. I always feel unsettled at first when I move into a new place but once I have a vision of how I can make it my home, I'd start the remodel right away. You do everything you can to make yourself "comfortable" in every circumstance, right? 
     I am here at Reno now. Not for skiing, not for gambling, but for my girl's volleyball tournament. A lot of you didn't know I have a daughter who's going to be 13 this year and I am so proud of her unique talents. What do we call them?  iGeneration. The most precious years of their life: teenage years. They are mostly on their own, developing their personality, their existence, and identifying their self-worth. All we paren…
