Vintage Clothes, Modern look!!

Here is the story behind the Christian Dior skirt dress.

My DH always said "Don't bring someone's junk home unless you are absolutely sure that'll be your treasure." I found
Christian Dior skirt dress at a second-hand shop and went back and forth for it. I know it is a high brand w/ great tailor but just not sure if I can pull of the whole look of it. It is for sale at only $25 and I can't believe the price is that good.

So even w/ that price, I dare not to buy it right away until I found a dress made by
Anna Sui. It is exactly the same pattern as Christian Dior skirt dress except they have different designs and fabricate from different textiles.

This is a punk look of Anna Sui's dress.

This is the authentic look of Christian Dior top.
Sleeveless simple top!
As you can tell there is no design around the neck!
(I forgot to take pic. of its plain old look.)

This is after I transformed the top.

Asymmetrical one shoulder top w/ some draping and ruched design at the other shoulder.

I played w/ the skirt and try a pin to soften the square look of it. But I think it looks as good as it is!!

I tried different color of the belts. The black one is like Anna Sui's but I like the dusty pink one to pop out more in between the top and the bottom. I am not sure I want to wear them as a set but I am just amazed how different designers come across the same pattern for their design.

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. …

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…
