Can't Have Enough of Alexander Wang -- The Skirt n' Coco Duffel Bag!!

My parents came yesterday evening...and yes, my mom did bring over the Chanel classic jumbo I bought for her!!! My heart palpitated so fast after seeing her carrying that THEN-Mine-NOW-HERs bag!! lol  I really love the classic look of Chanel!!!

Well, I know you must think that I could either trade or borrow that classic jumbo from her, but I just don't know how to ASK!! So I think I will wait till next spring and see if boutique, NM or SAKs would order Chanel matte black reissue 226 w/ gold hardware!!!!!!Wish me luck then!!

Anyway, here is the look of me today!!! I must say it is hard to resist loving Alexander Wang Coco Duffel bag and obviously HE is getting so popular this season. A girl ran to me when we were crossing an intersection in SF city today just because she wants to know where did I get the Coco Duffel bag!!!! lol

I am glad I had a fur vest on... it gets so chilly in SF city!

I am only holding a pair of Alexander Wang's combat black heels... satisfied!!! :)

I had so much fun today as my dad can take pic. for me anytime and anywhere....not like DH!!! :P

My Outfit Du Jour!!

1. Top:
  • a gray tank w/ pocket which I forgot the brand which is also not important... :P
  • Mcginn cropped jacket w/ come w/ it vest 
  • et vous fur vest
2 Bottom: Alexander Wang. black string skirt
3. Accessory: 
  • Fallon brass cross, crystal necklace
  • Flying Lizard Design gold-plated necklace
  • Sparkle glass tassel necklace (gift from my Dad)
  •  Alexander Wang Coco Duffel bag in gray w/ silver studs
4. Shoes: Givenchy wedge boots w/ chains

Wouldn't you know it, this baby caught my eye and my "purse"!! haha.. They are just marvelous!!!

Proenza Schouler platform cap toe pump w/ wooden heels!

They are a work of art!!

I don't know why they had to make the shoe run such small of the size these days.... I had to order half size smaller from another Barney's New York!!

I will see you around!!!!



Wow...nice shoes!! I was actually eyeing the booties version.....but these pumps look yummy. Maybe I should add it to my shoe wishlist...LOL! But the patent leather...seems too firm/sturdy?

BTW, I'm really curious...the picture with your shoes high up in the air, did you/your dad take the photo with you wearing your short skirt then lifting your legs up there? Hahahahah....just can't imagine how you do it.....LOL! Sorry...I'm too analytical.....hahahha!

Anyway, nice skirt. have to get the reissue 226. It's the ultimate classic bag of Chanel....even better than classic caviar jumbo in black. Heard there will be a price increase either December or Jan timeframe...hurry hurry!

Oh I deleted my previous post coz I had some spelling error...haha...perfectionist me. :P

Anyway, I was saying....I saw your reply to Julia that you want to make a whole album of you in "nearly nude" in the future!! Wow....I bow to your courage!! Heads down. Go for it! It will be a great memory. But remember to do it before the age of 35 (I remember you're a lot younger than me right?)...don't wait too long. Early 30s I think is the golden age/years of women. :D Seize the day!

Love the Alexander Wang skirt!
Love your dress and congrats on another Wang's purchase!! I loooove those heels!!!

you were in the city today? i was there too! at barneys and i tried on the same shoes! i also tried on the ysl heels you bought, they are actually pretty comfy but the skinny heel makes me really nervous, like what if i step on the cracks on the sidewalk? i love the pose with the mannequin, did you put the boot on the head? another beautiful outfit today!

i give my mom my purses too!! LOL, i think i've passed on about 5 of my purses to her and we did a even trade for another :P

Hi, mia:
the booties is very nice too ...but I think it is too "hard" of a look to pair w/ an outfit....and I think heels w/ that kind of "sharp design" would be a better option! Besides, you know how many boots I already purchased this year.... no more boots!! :)

You know that pic. of my legs raising up that high is taken by myself.... of course I was sitting on the sofa and just raise my legs.... I have very strong abdominal and even Yu is so impressed when we were in LA and she saw the way I do push-ups and sit-ups. hahahaha... Anyway, now you reminds me to think if there are any other people around...hum... I assume not in front of ME!!! :P I think the pencil skirt is long enough to cover my butt even I lift my legs that high!! ^^

Well, I guess either way I will pay extra for that size of 226 anyway, it is already $2895 and $3195 for 227. I will wait till next February.

grrr... then I guess I have to hurry up before I am turning into 35 is only couple years from now!! Geez...

Thanks, Mike!

BTW, I love violet/blue bags on your blog...that's my color.
litlstrawberry said…
hey, thanks-giving girl: today I am thankful that my parents are here and because of them, I am here in USA!!!

Thank you for your inspiration!!
litlstrawberry said…
wow..Catherine: maybe next time you should call/email me if you plan to go to SF city.

I was there w/ my whole crew..oh, my parents.

So you mean you tried the P.S cap toe heels? or A. Wang ? My mom said that washed acid white boots like I am going to a WAR...and it looked extra huge on my all black outfit yesterday... not very flattering!! I don't know if black is on sale but the acid white is.... not buying it though. Yu loves the look and I think she is very into that designer too!!!

Humm..did you get anything? I really love my YSL and Givenchy boots and I have been wore them the past couple month since I bought them. I guess BLACK is always easy to pair. I am waiting for that P.S. heels to come next week.

Thanks for your kind blandishments!! The A. Wang skirt also give my BUTT a great curve too. :P

Oh, I love that outfit. I must admit, after someone showed me your blog, I'm completely obsessed! I love your style and uniqueness! Keep the awesome posts coming!

hey, Jenny:

I think I am in a phase of buying more shoes than bags too....and almost get carried away from Chanel!!! This season there are so many goodies that I can't just land my eyes on only Chanel...... oh, the buying will never end!!!! mom has been carrying that Classic jumbo to the city yesterday and to the lunch today.. I so want to pet the bag!! :P Well, I can only take pic. of my mom and that bag as much as possible when they are visiting here..

OH, how nice you and your mom can trade bags...maybe I should start doing that w/ my mom. ^O^
litlstrawberry said…
hi, Julia:
Thanks for your kind blandishments! I checked your blog and followed it. I sure hope that I will be helpful for you in the future when you post any of your style and get inspired w/ each other. :) You are young and style would come its way to you eventually! You must keep it up too!! :)
FashionFirst said…
Thanks so much for the advice. Haha, I'm sucking in my tummy right now. Hmm... it makes me feel like I'm a size 2. Anyway, I'm bribing myself with some Louboutins. I would do anything for a new pair, so hopefully I can lose some weight for them:)

The pictures with your kids are absolutely adorable! You remind me of Victoria Beckham: all fashionista with two or three kids on her arms.

BTW, giving your mom the Chanel was such a nice thing to do! I gave my sister one of my Coach bags, which costs not even a tiny fraction of a Chanel, and now when I see her wearing it, I'm like, "MINE!" Haha.

Amazing schoes <3
Aw, Rachel, you're very very welcome :)
Great shoes! And don't buy those sturdy A. Wang booties unless they're on sale! Even here they're already on sale and it's not even sale season yet in Europe! Adore that string dress by the way...

Hope you have a great weekend!
litlstrawberry said…
hey, haute girl:

I love your advice since that A. Wang's shoes never really win my eyes were lying on Burbury's version not the combat one...too much for shoes for A. wang and it would really be a waste of money if not bought on dirt cheap sale price...say $200?...hah... (oh, my friend, Yu probably would beat me up for saying that...haha..)
THanks. I adore that string skirt very much too...give me curve and feeling sexy in it!!!

You too. have a great weekend.

litlstrawberry said…
Thanks, Carmen.

Hope you have a great weekend!
litlstrawberry said…

Liz W said…

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…
