Mom's Big Splurge on buying BOOTS!!! Part I !!

How come the weather gets so warm these couple weeks?!! So, I hate it!!

Reason?

Well, to begin with, I must say I have way enough boots and I also admit that I never buy these many pairs of boots in one season!!!! lol I wish I can wear them as much as I can but darn the weather that I can only wear them to SF city where is much cooler than suburban!!



My New Givenchy chained wedge ankle boots!

Let's count how many pairs of boots I bought since Barney's legendary warehouse sale.

1. Chloe tan boots

2. Chloe taupe/purple tall boots

3. Chanel 09 s/s white mesh w/ bows booties

4.Minnetonka brown fringe suede boots

5. Givenchy black wedge w/ chain booties (have not posted)

6. Hermes black riding boots w/ Kelly locks (have not posted)

I think if I seriously sum up all the price of above boots, it is close to the cost of small Hermes Kelly!!lol

Guilty? Yes, absolutely!!

What did I do then?!!

1. To justify my out of control splurge, I returned CL maroon sling back heels couple weeks ago. (Brand new, of course!!!)

2. Shop at thrift store or discovery store(second hand/vintage) or Loehmann's near our bay area for clothes instead of major department stores. :P To tell you a good news, those places really are a treasure island and they have much better selection parted from other regular priced stores. :)

3. Eat at home and don't order entree' of my own when dinning out w/ family!! Sharing is a virtue. haha..hahaha.........

The returning CL heels justified almost $1000 spending. As for shopping at charity based discovery store, I think I am not just doing something good for our community but also feel happy about how much I saved aside from buying in department stores.

In fact, couple of my mommy friends all shopped at Loehmann's last week. We are just talking about how trendy and hip selection they had in their stores this year!! I guess *recession* is not so bad in some point of view since merchandise will be "re-priced" at more reasonable count. :)

As for home-cooking, it always benefits to the whole family. It is healthier, time-saving (don't have to wait for a table) and money-saving too!!!

Let's see if I can be the next Rachel Ray!!!!!! hahahaha...

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!!!!

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…
