Layering Two dresses!!

Today is such a nice sunny day and so warm again. I almost want to store away all of our sheets, duvet covers, pillow cases and replace them w/ light, silky new sheeting. But each room in my house has at least 3 to 4 pillows and euro sham plus fitted sheet, blankets, and duvet covers, it might take me couple days to do it. Thanks to my son, he peed two nights consecutively so I had changed his sheeting set to summer theme already. His favorite choo-choo train theme.

You know, whenever you browse through any bedding catalog, they always make the bedding so fluffy, so many layers of sheets and so many lovely decorative pillows. They sure know how to do business through commercials, they tell you the bed only look welcoming when you have so many sheets on. The cotton or silk, the thread count, the name for different patterns, and even the colors of sheet should be taken into account when buying. Most important of all, it has to match the decoration/theme w/ your room. Well, it is not so bad, at least we are the ONES who sleep on the bed. The money is total worth it.

Continuing on layering two dresses since yesterday. I am quite happy w/ my new inspiration from browsing the magazine the other day. I saw a lady who layered two dresses or shirt dress together and it turns out a very lovely look on her. So here is what I had on today.

My ODJ.

1. TOP:
  • Jean Paul Cauliter toile print halter dress
  • Taiwanese designer deep green silky shirt dress
  • Theory gold/white/silver tone shrug
  • Ellen Tracy brown belt w/ gold buckle
2. Chanel two tone pump
3. Chanel Large Rodeo Drive in black 08 s/s

I didn't mean to wear Chanel two tone pump w/ today's outfit. But after trying out couple pair of heels, I surprisingly found out they actually quite go w/ my ensemble. I had an inspiration from a
tpf (purseforum.com) friend who told me to wear deconstructive outfit w/ this new Chanel two tone pump to break up its too classic, or too uptight conservative look. I have something in my mind instead but am not ready for it yet. I guess when something is CLASSIC, it really is timeless. The look is unbeatable!!!

This is a conservative look of me w/ that pair of new Chanel pump.


I shall come out a casual chic look for this Chanel pump next week.


Do you think it goes well w/ my ensemble today?


This pair of Orange Boss two tone mary jane heels is kinda of what I had in mind for this outfit at the first place. The silver/taupe tone matches my shrug.

Rachel - Very creative! I love how you layered two dresses! Both Chanel pumps and Hugo Boss shoes go perfectly with the outfit. I should really pay a visit to the Hugo Boss store in SCP, I have never even walked in the store and you seem to have scored great buys there!

Yes, Isabel: you should pay a visit there. Just keep in mind, they will have sale eventually and unless something is very very classic, or something that you want to wear it now, cause' I know you don't like paying full price. But I bought their green suede ruched boots for full price as I cannot wait. haha...

They have quite chic collection in Orange BOSS and I think you will love them.

Always Posh in my Own Styles.

I had a busy week, plus the last bits of planning for NYC trip.  Dinner and brunch reservations, and we even bought Hamilton musical tickets. Since we are visiting NYC during Memorial weekend, hope we can find some good bargain shopping in The Big Apple too. One thing I am sure with this girls' trip is we are going to have tons of fun before one of my gf goes to law school this fall. It is a clean slate for her and I am sure it will also be a magnificent journey down the road. 
Back to my all time passion: Fashion. I like fine garments and I collect them to do mix and match over past seasons. However, what makes my style unique is intricate cuttings and perfect fitting that flatter my body. I don't follow trends just to claim I am fashion forward. I have my own methods of sorting through marketing injected advertisements for the best seasonal looks. Popularity isn't gained from what brands you wear but what styles you choose to wear. I wear street fashion in discretion just…

Wedge + Clog ! MINE is Clog + Heel!

I came across this Max Mara clog heels. I can't help myself buying it.


Now I am very excited.....why? Cause' it is extraordinary. I love the golden studded along the leather and since I don't like wedge too much, this stiletto is perfect for me.


So, did you see the bottom picture to the right? Kate Olsen!!? or Dree Hemingway's looks might work w/ Max Mara clog heels. ( Whose pic. is the very first one w/ fuchsia vest) Normally I am not a copy cat, but this time, I will see if I have something similar like what she wears w/. Yes, that will be a good start to tackle this pair of heels.

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…
