Inspired by Marni Runway 09'!! A Nostalgic Dress of Mine!!

I bought this DKNY silk dress when I was still in college in Taiwan.

Back then, I was so in love w/ their design, the display/music played in the boutique and even envy SAs who work there. hahaha.. .... Yes, I must think it is a wonderful thing to have an employee discount and to wear their tres chic clothes at work everyday. :)

I have so many memories w/ this dress, such as I remember vividly which boutique I purchased it from, how much I paid it for, and I even wore this dress to a beauty pageant contest. lol

Don't you ever think of giving up a dress when, in fact, it sits in your closet for too long and you barely ever wear it??!! However, deep in your heart, you are still waiting for the coming back of its time to wear it again!!!

I am so happy that I instantly thought of this DKNY dress when browsing Marni's 2009 runway collection back in August.

I am happy that I found a new way to express the beauty of this simple silk dress!!

Best of all, I saved tones of money!! lol

Silk + fur + embroidery + bold pattern leggings + platform heels = gorgeous!!

The only thing I can't figure it out is the Micky mouse gloves!!! :P

She looks so warm and secure under that crape!
The pants has an interesting detail of zipper-pull. To tell ya girls that I even had one of my pants added w/ two zippers in front and w/ exposed metal teeth just want to try the trendy look but don't want to buy another pair of cropped pants.

DH and I are good after communicating our thoughts through emails, phone calls, and harmless arguments. :P I really am not the type of woman who easily hides her emotion, rather "talk to me" and "to feel how my heart feels" are the best ways to help me understand a guy's conscience!!

I am glad that in-laws are gone and I also make sure that they don't think they are the cause of our fight. Well, honestly, they might add tension between DH and I. But for us, it also is a great chance that DH and I can work things out and learn to avoid the tension filling up between each other next time when in-laws visit. :)

tis' the season... pumpkin!!

This is the ugliest rooster I've ever seen. :P

BEAST + beauty!!
haha... We are always an opposite: Under-dressed Vs. Overdressed couple!!

We have two unknown plum trees in our backyard before we even moved in. But I never wanted any fruit tree in our backyard since I don't think I will have time to mind gardening work. Today, finally, I gave in to my mother-in-law who wants a fruit tree in the backyard, I bought a dwarf lemon tree from Half Moon Bay!!! :)

Maybe I can find something similar to a bib necklace to mimic Marni's look more.


1. TOP:
  • DKNY green silk dress
  • et vous rabbit fur vest (bought in Pairs)
  • Juicy Contour tartan socks
  • Boss orange platform Mary-Jean heels
2. Accessory:
Chanel 08 metallic silver reissue 227

I never would thought tartan socks can make this dress so fun!!

Ok, DH got home after dropping off in-laws and we are going to catch up w/ Gossip Girls!!!

Girls, have a great weekend, and don't forget to buy pumpkin pies if you don't bake pies like me!! :P

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!!!!

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…
