Effortless Casual Chic + YSL 09' runway elastic booties!!

vAfter we had dinner w/ friends, I quickly packed some very light clothes and BIG warm coats!! My friends including you fab. girls live in south Cal. keep telling me that it is so warm in LA. And all I need is a pair of SANDALS!!! Absolutely no need to bring boots at all!!! Ok, that just sound very disappointing cause' I am a boots gal in winter......... :(

Anyway, Yu and I scheduled that we should leave home at 6:00 AM to avoid the traffic!! I am waiting for the laundry while blogging at the same time.  I'd like to leave home w/ no left-over in the fridge, no trash, and no dirty laundry cause' when we come back home, I can be relaxed mentally and not being stressed out by thinking of all the un-done house chores!!  

This is what I think : ----- Leave Home Happy, and Come Back Home Happy!! ------- :)

Ok, back to today's business! 
I found two cardigans in Anthro. last week and they are great candidates for the look we saw in Nordi. However, they only have size L left for Navy, and size S left for Orange!!

This one is size Large and two sleeves are overwhelming on my frame, however, that is just what I want a slightly slouchy look on me!

This is size Small which fits perfectly on me but I bought the large Navy one instead!!

I cinch the cardigan and like the style very much!

Here is the look I copied today!!

This is the final ideal look!!


1. TOP:
  • Splendid shirt w/ one pocket $68
  • Big knitting cardigan (Anthro.) for $89
2. Bottom: TSE high waist tapered wool pants (bought last year)
3. Accessory:
  • white knitting scarf w/ sequins
  • Flying Lizard Design necklace
  • Chanel 08' perforated Rodeo Drive large tote
4. Shoes: YSL 09' runway elastic band booties

I love the striped scarf and it adds fun to my outfit!

I use safety pins to make cuffs on both sleeves: 1. to shorten the sleeves 2. so the too large cardigan would look proportioned on me

Good nite


Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hi R! I like your cardigan, and I also think that a slightly slouchy look is nicer than a fitted look for this type of cardigan. Nice price too! I own something like that as well from Kookai and some other brands.....I think I need to dig them out to put up some ensembles! :D Oh that knitted sequined scarf is a nice accessory on your outfit. I bought something similar too from Kookai in Paris but it's in mesh material in black with some navy & brownish beads. Don't you just love little things like that? Just can't get enough...haha!

Oh...I almost forgot to ask you. What size do you wear for your Givenchy wedge booties? I am planning to buy them too during the sale. :D Just want to make sure I order the correct size as we don't have it hear locally.

Anyway, enjoy LA and come back home HAPPY!

R - Have fun in LA! You are lookin' hot and ready to take the SoCal fashion scene by storm. LOL. The sequin scarf is an unexpected but fun touch to your striped shirt. I still have a difficult time believing those YSL heels are comfortable, but they are very drool worthy regardless.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Yu's family!

Julia said...

showing your great sense of fashion!!

Oh, wow! That Chloé look was almost perfect! A brown or gray belt and it would have been complete. Still, it was perfect! I love the contrasts and the fitted pants. You have a marvelous waist to have had children! Great on you!

Hi R! Fitness posts sound great. Glad you're enjoying your time in soCal! Happy Shopping and make more damage! LOL!

BTW, thanks for your shoe size. But I'm referring to the Givenchy Wedge Booties, not the YSL one...hehe! If you remember your Givenchy wedge booties size, please let me know. Thanks so much!

Hi R, Hope you had fun shopping in L.A. I can't wait to see what you got. I'm in love with your Chloe Wedge Boots. Do you know if stores still carry this boot style? I've been looking but I don't seem to find them. I saw a pair on ebay but not in my size :(
