My 3.1 Phillip Lim Sequined Top!

A stay-home mom doesn't have many opportunities or occasion to wear dressy/formal outfits on daily basis. However, I couldn't bear the thoughts that this 3.1 Phillip Lim gray sequined top only made her debut when we girls partied at Vegas last month.

Today, I am in a mood to dress myself up but in order to look casual enough for running errands or posh enough to dine at a nice cafe, I came out this ensemble. Here I share w/ you all.

One funny thing is DH comes home for lunch as I am editing my blog right now and he asked me "Where am I going w/ this outfit?!! And what do I put on this whole make-up for????? hah...I said, I intended to do my eye shadows only. But I look sick w/ heavy colors when seeing myself in the mirror so I put some blush on. Then I thought a hot pink lip gloss would match my toe nails......then Oo-La-Lah~~~~ haha..... I guess that's why my gals always think I am so dressy everyday for a stay home mom. I just can't have slightly imperfection on me!! Yah, I like to say I have a very sophisticated palates for personal image.


Keep the color palette simple when everything is so intricate in design.

1. TOP:
  • 213 Jersey dress
  • 3.1 Phillip Lim Gray sequined tank
  • Elisabeth & James White blazer w/ ruched sleeves
2. Accessory: Chanel matte white reissue 227 08/09 cruise collection
3. Shoes: Valentino side bow sling back in MUD

I seldom wear this girly girly look!!

I look quite tan under these color tone today!

This white blazer can protect my sequins from rubbing off when holding my little girl.

What a fun mixture of textures! I would've never thought of combining the sequins with the silk and then with the blazer, but it works on you somehow. Those patent heels are gorgeous. So are the other girls wearing it as much too?

I'm loving your interior design with the pop of orange in the little details. Very tasteful, yet modern. How do you keep everything so neat and in order when you have three kids!? Is the living room "out of bounds" for them?

Switzerland would be fun to see the Alps and perhaps, to visit La Vanguardia and her new baby in November. :)

Btw, I love reading about your beauty regime. I'm always wondering what works for other people. Many Taiwanese women celebrity have beauty books and I always like to sneak a read just to see what they use... like da S, her friend Wu, Annie Yi...etc.

hi, Betsy: thanks, girl. You are so sweet every time. you remind me that I should ask my girls how do they pair the valentino heels w/. are right, the kids usually won't play in the living room as there is no TV there. The only time they are there is they want to grab the decor. pillows there and make house out of the cushion. hehe... Besides, I tend to collect whatever doesn't belong its place every day and keep everything tidy.

Right, it has been a while I visit her blog...too many to catch up w/. I figured that she is WAY to far from here..(Jk).

Thanks, Betsy, I am glad you always stop by and leave comments...I can't believe Cathy told me that she doesn't know how to leave comments on my blog.....I was like *I&&D^%I$O#@T*!!!!! (you can see the word in between. hahaahahahha) One of these days I have to see what's wrong w/, I mean why can't she leave the comments!!!

hah...I am going back to Taiwan....and I can't wait to get some pretty shoes and clothes w/ dirt cheap price!!!!!!!!! (I don't know if I even have time shop though, two weeks is very short.) :(

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…
