Window Shopping w/ me! Brown Boots Like My Chloe & More: Biker Leather Vest!!

It was fun for me to play dress-up on the mannequin yesterday. So today, I thought why not trying out things on the mannequin in the store and see if I have something similar at home. If I don't try them out on me then I probably won't end of buying them impulsively. hee~~

Sure it works for me as I didn't get anything from Nordi. today after done playing w/ those pretty pieces. Hooray!!!

Here are couple things I found interesting. I didn't bother go to big designers collection as I want to find something cute and w/ a charming price tag. Oh, they are not that dirt cheap but they will be w/ the store promotion, discount, friends&family event in the near future. So watch closely for things you want in the department stores as they are gone very fast!!!!

1. "Tory Burch" brown boots. $475

It is actually not as shiny brown as shown under flash here.
I also like the little ruched look w/ button pin.

It looks so similar to my Chloe wedge boots which I adore so much.

My beloved brown Chloe boots.

2. "June" Dark brown biker leather vest $342.

This is a classic look and the leather quality looks n' touches very nicely.

3. Robert Rodriquez wool sleeveless cardigan $385.

It comes w/ a sequined scarf in asymmetrical design.

I can see it being layered inside a coat or trench for extra chic and warm!!

This is a look from my friend, Yu, w/ her brilliant pairing skill. :)
The easy spirit of coat n' cardigan!!


Can't believe I already wear my Emporio Armani tuxedo coat before Nov.!!

4. "Beyond Vintage" cream embroidery blouse $202.

This is ONE THING in my wishlist. :)

I have a weakness on embroidery and cream/white blouse or just plain Victoria style blouse.

5. Robbi & Nikki Sequin Drape Cardigan $231.

6. (INSIDE) Robert Rodrique light taupe/cream wrinkled top $285.

I think they are gorgeous pairing together. :)

Hope you had fun w/ me!!!

Have a fabulous weekend!!!

Rachel - Love the "June" biker vest!!! Does is come in black? Where in Nordstrom did you find it? Your ODJ is very chic, you are definitely getting lots of wear on your gorgeous black boots. The weather here has finally cooled down, I am looking forward to wearing my new boots too. Oh, thank you for your opinions on my recent purchases!

I love that brown leather vest! You look great! xo
litlstrawberry said…
Thanks Andee!! You look great as well. :)

I'm a huge fan of the vest as well, esp after seeing your friend Renee with her black one. I've seen the Rick Owens vest online and it is absolutely yummy too. Yu's coat over cardigan look is tres chic for this weather, esp paired with boots. At first glance, I totally thought it was you and your MJ alpaca coat.

So do you have any input on the Lanvin bag that I asked you about last week? :P

I hope you had a great weekend.
Wai Thit said…
I know.. hehee.. i think i am gonna be on to a few bags- yellow and red caviar mediums and the black and white ribbon bags next year.. and for a watch, i am hinting a chopard this year as a birthday gift. Let's see if DF or daddy get to it.. but at this point i dont think anyone is gonna get me anything.. hehe.. i updated my blog! i think u might like this outfit!!

Hi to B above^ i dont know what lanvin bag you asked R but i am loving the silver one so much!! i think i might actually end up getting that one.. hehe
litlstrawberry said…
hey, Betsy: You have to send me another link as I didn't receive it at all. hum...what happened to the email these seems all messed-up. :P
litlstrawberry said…
oh, Cutie: I definitely will check it out..but you know, right now is 1:53 AM and I just got back from my high school pal's place as I had a huge fight w/ my DH yesterday...I am drunk and definitely need to go to bed ASAP. I will talk to you tomorrow. :)

Congrats to your DH's fancy car!!
Betsy C. said…
Rachel - I guess I should resend the link. Weird how you haven't been getting my emails. :(
Fab finds! I love the vest and the long cardigan. Such a great idea to window shop first to see if you have similar things... definitely a good way to curb spending ;-) I haven't properly looked for FW stuff yet, but maybe it's a good thing, because I know once I start, I won't be able to stop...

Hi, Haute Shopper:

Great you update your blog. Love Tunisia, I never been that country and wish someday I could. :)

Thanks, yep, it is great that I took those pic. and drool over it on my blog....haha.. Ok, I might end of buying that leather vest from JUNE. IT is such a versatile, stylish piece. :)
Well, again, wish I can buy all of them. hahah...

I've been following your blog for quite some time now.

Can I just say that you look fantastic? I mean, with 3 kids, seriously .. how do you do it?

I love those Tory Burch boots! Do you know if they come in black?
litlstrawberry said…
yes, Mona:
it did come in black as its style is"Sable." You can find it online in nordstrom.

Thanks for your sweet words, dear.

I believe diet, generic and regular work-out are the only way to look great.....when past 30s. hahaha..

Rachel (hope you don't mind me calling you by your name),

Thanks a lot! I will definitely check them out in Nordstrom.

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…
