Chanel Mommy's fun time!!

This morning, Cathy and I decide to take kids to San Francisco city. There is nothing in particular in our plan but we just think it has been a while since the last time we were out together.

But you know what, when kids are involved, everything seems to be unpredictable. Speaking of time management, it occurs to me that I used to be very strict about being on time but it was before having kids. Now I still try my best to be on time in every appointment, kids' check-ups, friends meeting......etc. but a lot of mommy friends of mine are horrible about being on time!!!

So, when Cathy called me this morning, it was 9:30 AM. But when she and her older son arrived at my place, it was almost 11 AM. You know what I have done in 1 1/2 hr. while waiting for her. I had my breakfast (I am ready to go w/ my outfit of the day.), took my pic. of ODJ, prepared the diaper bag and even vacuum the 1st floor of my house. Well, I guess it was worth the wait then.

We went to couple boutiques in SF city to check out s/s collection and had a nice lunch at the restaurant inside Emporio Armani boutique. I had to pick up my other 2 kids at school so we had to leave the city before 3 PM. But it is really nice for us mommies to catch up even only couple hours. We had a wonderful day!!

I play w/ heels which I think they all match in some ways!!

1. TOP:
  • 123 Korean brand jersey w/ metallic skirt dress
  • Kersh cobalt cotton vest
  • Tracy Reese cropped/wrap cardigan
2. Bag: LV Damier Berkerly
3. Shoes:
  • Pink sparkles w/ crystals heels (bought in Taiwan)
  • Jean-Mitchel Cabazat metallic purple buckle Sandal
  • Betsy Johnson cobalt w/ bow on back heels
4. Chanel 08 f/w pink crystals/pearls/camellia/clove brooch
5. Chanel 08 s/s pink camellia dangle earrings

First, I match my heels w/ my Chanel brooch n' earrings---PINK!!

Yes, I play w/ my cardigan and think this casual way of wrapping around my shoulder is fun.

Second, I had my heels matches my skirt.....well, the color is close enough.

Third, I think the Betsy Johnson heels can go w/ my cobalt vest.

W/ cardigan on might not be that perfect w/ color flow, in my opinion.

Last one...the real fun time!!

Hi Rachel,

You and Cathy looked like you had a great time! I have always wondered how you make it back in time to pick up your kids from SF? Doesn't it take more than one hour each way? So most of time are spent driving, no? I think you going to SF is the same distance as me going to Beverly Hills, and I hate driving there!! But again, LA is notorious for its bumper to bumper traffic. Oh, I love your pink sparkly shoes, are the straps crystallized? I also love Cathy's boots, they are very "Kate Moss"

Hi, Isabel: know, Cathy called me Highway No. 1 since I am like flying a car when driving!!!!!! My mother-in-law comments on my driving as influenced by my pilot father...who flies airplane!!! hah...

It took me 45 Min. each way to SF city. If I have to pick up my kids by 3:45 PM, I just leave around 3 PM. Well, of course there are couple times I am late!!!

Thanks for liking the sparkle heels, they are my wedding gown heels!!!! Yes, the straps are crystallized. You know, it is very common in Taipei to see girls wearing all kinds of sparkle things on them.

Oh, you know, I still have not had chances to go Saratoga..but I think I still can make it before your trip here.

Hey hey, little fish: It is so good to hear from you ..especially here in the blog!!! How are you??/ Busy in studying??? I miss you very much too. know I like layering and sometimes I'd go w/ all the fuss to make my ensemble work. But you know what, that's why I actually don't own a big wardrobe....mix n' match will make you think I have lots of new clothes all the time!!!

Hi, La:
I thought you might like the blue heels to go w/ the ensemble. In your outfit, you always tend to dress w/ flair or little drama to make the whole outfit so interesting!!!

I am so happy to hear you like my ensembles and be passionate w/ your life too. Yes, study and work young as possible, I believe those hard work will pay off some day!!!

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. …

This season, there is one more thing in my never-ending clothing wish list: A Cape!!!

I never really want ONE since it never occurs to me that it is a stylish staple in one's wardrobe. :P However, I know I am always enamored by its sophisticated look!! :) Maybe one day I will indulge myself w/ a classic piece like those on the mag.

Aren't those 3 capes classic n' gorgeous!!!!

I want to share a store coupon w/ you girls. This deal is better than its offered 15% off for joining in their email list. You just have to go to "store location" page and print out the coupon and use it in different stores if you have more than ONE item that you like!!! (Please don't tell SAs that …

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…
