Take Runway into Real way!!

This is Lanvin's spring/summer runway look.

I love all the clean cut of their tops and cute yet elegant drape skirt. That's the trend for this spring/summer and you pretty much can buy similar style from every brand. When something is a trend, every designer or non-designer apparel must have a collection of it. Yes, they need to make money, and they need to sell!!!!

I think it is time for me to find a drape skirt too!!!

Love the drape on the skirt!!

I had similar necklace made w/ beads and rose embroidery!! I found it is so versatile that it goes perfectly w/ some of my tops w/o being overwhelmed or compete w/ my ensemble. I love it!! Yes, style for less!!

1. TOP:
  • Valentino RED white cotton top w/ asymmetrical lace at hem
  • Max&Co. gray shirt w/ ruched deco. in front
  • Burberry baby blue trench coat
2. Bottom: Vera Wang lavender label layered pleats skirt
3. White/ivory patterned hosiery
4. Shoes: Hugo Boss Orange Boss Olive suede ruched platform boots
5. Chanel Gary Classic Jumbo 08 f/w
6. Chanel silver heart w/ clear crystals, cc logo earrings 08 s/s
7. Accessory: Gray purplish beads w/ embroidered rose necklace (bought at Anthropologies)

I love the necklace against the ruched deco. of gray top !!

I don't have too dramatic clothes so it is easy to mix-n-match everything together!!

If I want a drama look, I will find one specifically for the occasion!!

W/ coat!

I love to read your blog and watch you put together different outfits. Your layering skills is something I must learn! And I admire your use of color...I love the neutral/pastel tones of this ensemble! Last but not least the grey jumbo is just yummy!

haha...I love your name, milkshake. You know, someone must like something or at least something that was LOVED by someone you like/love to be picked up as a nickname.

Thank you, dear. Once a while I would go back to neutral tones on my ensemble after couple days of heavy colors. Layering is fun and you will never know it would work until you try it and vice versa,....some pieces just don't work together. haha.....

Rachel - Love this outfit!! You know I am a big fan of grey.... Oh, the Lanvin draping skirt you posted, I saw a similar one in H&M - although I like it a lot, it's shorter than I am used to, but you should be able to pull it off...

So the story behind it is... My real name is Nancy. When I was still in college, my friends started calling me milkshake (in chinese) because they thought it sounds like Nancy in chinese. It's been years but it stuck. haha.

I will definitely continue to visit your blog (and of course the chanel mommy thread) to learn more from you! You probably are the most stylish mommy I know. Keep it coming =)

Hi, Isabel:
How are you doing w/ your Birkin? Here is non-stop raining so I can't really carry my white reissue out...she is too delicate to get wet. :)

I have not visited H&M for quite some are usually tired from school and they just want to go home. I don't get to shop at store..... I think I will pick up my earrings from SF tomorrow...if it doesn't rain too hard. Then, I might be able to check out that drape skirt!!!
litlstrawberry said…
hah....Nancy: come to think about does sound like milkshake in Chinese. haha.. Your friends are very sweet and cute.

Yes, being a stylish mom is something that every MOM can be and should be!!! :)

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 …

4/12 (Sun.) Day 2 in Vegas w/ Girl Friends!

First of all, I have to thank Irene for coordinating every one's schedule to make this dream trip happen.

On Sunday, we planned to treat ourselves to a beauty spa in Mandalay Bay Hotel. Our appointment at The Bathhouse spa is at 1 PM. But since yesterday we stood up so late, we didn't wake up until 11 AM. However, neither Cathy nor I think we actually fell asleep as we were still so exhausted when waked up. And I am the one who slept the least but got up from the bed the first. I went to gamble alone after clubbing till 5 or 6 in the morning. Well, the time in Vegas is too luxury to stay in bed anyway. lol Pei probably slept not bad at all as I can hear she snores persistently throughout the night. haha............

We each had either Swedish or Deep-muscle massage. I recall my last massage is when I traveled back to Taiwan. My Dad took us family to Thailand and he called for two people to our room. In Thailand, most massagers' body frame are small-built but I am surpri…
