Yesterday, I met a new girl friend, a loving wife and a mom of two sons. We have the same passion about fashion, mainly is toward a high brand, Chanel. Yes, what's not to love talking about Chanel, right?!! But because we both have family, kids and being a stay-home mom period, we value things differently from we used to be when we are only ourselves. We spend wisely I guess!!

We spent whole afternoon together doing window shopping and we went down to the city of Saratoga. It is a very nice town, quiet but sometimes might be too conservative for we girls. However, if you do stop by each stores there, you will find little "treasures" hidden.

This store we stopped by is called "Vanity by MK" which is only opened couple weeks ago.
They sell a lot of costume jewelry. Some of them are uniquely handmade w/ imported materials or even Vintage jewelry w/ modern touch to update its look. They had a little Valentine's party. My friend and I didn't notice the two models standing/modeling clothes of their store until we ask for taking pic. for ourselves. The manager is actually very glad that she suggested we can even take pic. inside the window display w/ two other girls. There I realized how fun and smart idea of advertising their newly opened store w/ their SAs. Those two models seem very professional and they might have done this before. The pose, the make-up and the moderate smile is just so comfortable to look at.

I walked in the window display and did couple poses. I would say that is a wonderful experience I ever had to be a window display model. I like the girls/SAs in that store and they all have a down to earth personality.

My Valentine's Day outfit.

1. Celine red sheath dress
2. Jamie Chen(Taiwan designer) black cropped cardigan w/ satin bow tie
3. black leggings
4. Jean-Mitchel Cazabat buckle heels
5. Chanel Dark silver timeless Hawaii exclusive clutch

I should do a dramatic make-up to look more like a Mannequin. hha...

What a great shot, Rachel!! You and Izabel looked like you had such a blast. Too bad I wasn't in town or I would've loved to join you guys at NM and Stanford. Maybe next time around.

Can't wait to see more of today's post...

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…
