Day 3 after the spider vein surgery (Sclerotherapy).

I told DH that I feel suffocated w/o going out window shopping after yesterday. hah...I know, even just one day I felt I am deserted from the fashion week in NY.

Today, DH said that he wants to eat at
Left Bank at Santana Row. Well, why am I so surprised?? Because he said that just for me!!! He knows that I like going to fancy restaurants and feeling alive when just looking at the window display outside those shops. Oh, what a sweet guy for me!!! haha.....

Off we go Left Bank.

Today I call my outfit as
style of Rock and Roll + Posh Eclectic! (The term is credited to the book "The Lucky Guide to Master Any Style" )

Here is my inspiration!! (pic. credited to ,

1. TOP:
  • Navy blue ruched turtle neck w/ mosaic decor. top
  • No brand peasant dress/tonic top
  • Mcginn cropped vest (come w/ a blazer)
  • Vince leather jacket
2. Hosiery: Brown w/ tiny orange/white dots stockings
3. Rudy's black riding boots (bought in Paris)
4. Greenish/ taupe knitting scarf (bought in H&M)
5. Balenciaga Violet part-time w/ silver harware

Since I wore stockings instead of leggings, I think a pair of chic boots will compliment this edgier look better.

Poor my daughter...still feeling ill!

After brunch, we went to Border's bookstore and bought kids some books and art craft for fun!

I bought one passport cover for my son last year and found it is such a nice thing to distinguish his passport from rest of ours. Don't you just hate it when you have to sort through all the passports for the custom when traveling out of country. So I bought another two for my other kids and hopefully we will get through custom faster next time when traveling!!

Aren't those owl prints adorable!!
I even bought myself another key holder as I have one extra key w/o her clothes one. This owl key holder is more flexible than the monkey one I had!!

Kids are napping right now and I know tonight is another long night for me.

Shed off my Vince leather jacket as it is not that cold actually!

Rachel - I love this outfit! It's very Parisian.... I remember we talked about pairing floral dress with leather jacket last time we met. It's very Sienna Miller!

hey, sister:
Thanks. You know, when one day I am feeling drained then next day I will have inspiration after seeing some good modeling pic. from you and others' at tpf.

I hate the raining here and kids are all sick......

Yes, I guess nowadays we can pair pretty much everything w/ leather jacket and look good. hah....

Love the passport holders. I've been looking for some for my DD and DS too. Are they easy to take in and out of?

Your brown tights with orange dots are super cute!

hi, Betsy: Thanks.

Yes....the passport holder are super cute, easy to use and of course it is very convenient to take passport out.
it won't block pic. from the passport and you don't really need to take it off as long as the custom can see the photos.

Thanks...I am crazy about all kinds/colors of hosiery. :)

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!!!!

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…
