When Fashion Is Some "textile" Away!!!

I was browsing through some fashion magazine the other day and didn't realize it was about s/s 09 collection until later. Models are layering so many pieces and dark colored clothes that no one would tell it is s/s apparel at first glance. Then I realized I was admiring this designer: Neil Barrett. He was a former designer for Gucci and Prada's men collection until he launched his own men's wear at fall 1999. Then there is his collection for both man and woman since fall 2006. The most impressive design from Neil is his 2006 collection of training apparel for Italy’s World Cup–winning soccer team.

Here are some of his collection. I definitely can find some similar pieces in my wardrobe if not exactly the same. :)

Yap, waist coat is the most powerful piece to have an instant stylish look.

I will definitely buy that very short version of coat for this f/w collection !!! So fierce!!

If you are wondering why would I want that coat, then here is WHY!!! These days I am looking into another famous designer: Ann Demeulemeester. I saw her 09 f/w collection is full of those masculine shaped little coats.

You know, those little coats really isn't that hard to pull off and I believe it will look great on everyone too.

I didn't forget my CHANEL!!!

1. TOP:
  • American Apparel white tank
  • BCBG taupe w/ ruffed detailed vest in zipper closure
Zara gray high-waist tapered pants
  • Black bow thin belt from URBN
  • Chanel 09 s/s multiple pearl necklace
  • Chloe orange Sally 09
  • Max Mara black platform clog
I am so glad that I bought this pair of platform CLOG and I saw similar ones from Miu Miu in full price for this f/w.

The look I inspired from Neil's collection except for I didn't pair black waist coat w/ black pants.

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…
