Not Too Late To Go Green In Fashion ~ Linda Loudermilk!

Linda Loudermilk's collection includes Oeko-Tex certified linen (from the flax plant, which requires little or no pesticides or fertilizers to grow) and organic cotton (pesticide- and fertilizer-free) jersey.
This high-end eco-designer based at Los Angeles, uses sustainable fabrics such as soy- and corn-based fibers. She has even created women's separates made from an antibacterial Japanese fabric called sasawashi. She also has a more chic, luxury eco line, which sports rock n' roll edge, made from seaweed and cellulose called seacell - which releases vitamins and nutrients absorbed by the skin!! Now you can't say that Beauty is as shallow at its appearance! :) (Intro. courtesy of WWW)

I was eyeing this suit since Feb. but didn't take the plunge to buy it. Even now I bought it, I am still trying to justify its price. The SA thinks this suit is timeless and I can wear it forever. I can't argue w/ her. The slightly muscular shoulder is what's all about this f/w until 2010. I think I will be able to get around w/ the jacket in the future w/ a little alteration if big shoulder is not a hit anymore. :)

I will do a better MOD pic. after I alter the pants. The waist is too loose even w/ size 8 in Brit. which is equal to size S in USA.

I love this black suit has a sheen to it. So glamorous!!

The jacket has asymmetrical design for its collar and only one side has the pocket. So fun!

well, no matter where you go,a jacket always gives people a "serious" or "so stylish" impression. I normally don't think I am overdressed as I am overload w/ everything in terms of life, kids, house work, even exercise 4 or even 5 times/ I just like to be overly loaded about almost everything. hahah...........

Sure, I will check it out. Oh, yap, you should, so I don't have to go throu. everyone's "chat" and focus more about things we liked to talk about. You know, i don't like sweet is sometimes just too much!!! haha... you know what do I mean!!! *<*

hi there! got your comment about my collection.. well sorry to say but here in the Philippines there's a lot of women who collects this kind of flipflops.. wayyyyyy more than mine.. hahahah!
Hi R!! Love your new jacket! So "wet-look" and sophisticated! Can't wait to see how you mix and match it. I haven't heard about this brand at all. So, I guess there are a lot of contemporary local designers in the US who are good, right? Yup, do post more so that we can learn. I tend to only know about European and Japanese I'd love to know more about American designers too. I think they sometimes have good stuff.

Oh R, I saw your other post on the McQueen clutch+gloves and shoes. I think they are so cool! And it won't be too much at all for you. Esp the shoes...go get it. The silhouette is very nice. :D

Haha...I know about you know about "sweet talk" at tPF.

So, are you still going to Switzerland end of the year?


**Wave** to Julia!! So you started your blog too! Now I can visit your blog more often. I like reading blogs more than tPF...hahahahaha! It's more organized and user-friendly. (I've started a blog too a month ago, but I only posted 1 time and completely abandoned it. LOL!! Blogging can take up so much time though...hehehehe.)

Welcome to the blog world!!

Hi, eve:

You don't say!!! Now I can understand that you must catch up soon!!! hahaha......

You are welcome and it looks you had a great time w/ family vacation!!!

Oh, hi, Michelle:
Thanks. I love that jacket, and it looks so leather-like in the pic. but it is linen (made from Bamboo). They did some treatment on linen and I don't have to worry a thing about wrinkle. I normally don't buy linen but this is so different!! You know, since I told my friend, Cathy, that some clothes can give "nutrition" (seaweed can help heeling) to the skin, she say I can wear her clothes whenever I have cuts on, it is a joke!!! hahaha....

OH,...well, I don't know since my brother might be married at the end of this year or early 2010. We don't want to spend a fortune on just buying the fare again.... we must plan everything cautiously!! :) Well, Switzerland will always be there!!!
However, I know I def. will plan a trip end of Sept. or before end of Oct. for both Italy & Switzerland next year if we didn't end of going this year!!!!!! It will be nice to visit them both since they are so close by train! :)

Oh, sweet talk, never mind what I said. I am just sometimes very straightforward but I do know once a while I have to give credit to everyone "in the world" since it takes effort for everyone to do anything!! I respect that!! I like decent opinion. Yes, we all do!

Oh, Michelle:
I think Linda Loudermilk is a British. She studies at Oxford but have all her collection made in USA. :) I don't think she is a local American designer!

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 …

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…
