This spring/summer is all about pants!!

Everyone must have more than couple different shapes, colors, cut, fabric...of pants to meet every occasion. I have a thing w/ blazers and jackets these days and I have a nostalgic feeling w/ my Homme Agnes' b metallic sheen pants too.

I had altered my Pierre Balmain jacket to a cropped one as skirt suit don't fit in my life style now. Also, this pair of pants is a normal cut of men's suit pants. I love the color and precised tailor look so I bought it. I only wear it like once every year and still cannot think of a reason to get rid of it!! Yes, only wear once a year is such a waste as I think I could wear it more often. I hate that I have clothes just sitting in my closet and I don't know how can I maximize wearing it. Therefore, I had it altered to be a cropped and 3/4 length cuffed slim pants. It looks alive on me again and I think I can wear it more than just once every season.

1. TOP:
  • Derek Lam cashmere camel tank top
  • Gucci ruffle round neck tank top
  • Pierre Balmain jacket (altered as a cropped blazer)
2. Bottom: Agnes' b Homme pants (altered )
3. Shoes: Jean-Mitchel Cabazat metallic purple w/ 2 buckles heels/sandal
4. Chanel 08 Star brooch
5. Elfi designer necklace

7. My creation of earrings from two different ones

Yes, cropped pants like this sophisticated look definitely need a pair of heels to compliment



See, you can save a lot if you just think of something to improvise from your wardrobe, you will be surprised.



I think leopard Lanvin happy sac will jazz up my understated ensemble

What's style??? What's a unique style that only suits you?

Today, I felt my brain is drained that I have no clue of what to wear. What kind of styles that I want myself present to be.

So I decided that I will just pick some pieces that they are individually pretty enough but I have never worked them together before. I didn't think too much about if their colors matches or not. Simply I want a style which makes people ponder....how come they never thought about that ensemble would work!!!!

I know what I wear sometimes might not suit everyone's palate but everything I wear definitely makes myself feel sexy and confident!! I think everyone should find a personal style that only suits him or herself and being unique!! Especially, if you are looking for a job right now!! You have to dress to impress at the first sight!!

Fur!!! Cruel or fabulous???

In Europe, fur is the most common staple you can see on every fabulous woman. I love animals just as much as I love fashion. I wouldn't want to see people kill animals just because of the demand of their skin or fur. I hope there is also something to do w/ the balance of ecologic system. The only fur vest I have on today is purchased in Paris last Nov. and absolutely love how the various fur colors on this fur vest.

A pair of navy socks will complete the look and flatter the whole ensemble better.

Fashion Inspired by everything everyday!!

Yesterday, after we had lunch, we went to Borders book store. I, no doubt, browse through some fashion magazines while kids are reading their story books. Just amazed how fashion goes around and comes around after couple years. Therefore, I played w/ my Marc Jacob dress from the past season and figured a way to pull it off better w/ a up-to-date look.

Here Outfit du Jour is the inspiration I got. I wore my Marc Jacob dress as a high waist tulip skirt w/ its 2 strings which suppose to go around my torso as
a haltered style dress. I hooked two ends together after wrapping them around my waist.

I felt like an old fashioned lady from the past century who wrapped cloth around the waist just so she can have a small waist!!!
PhotobucketHere are the details of my ODJ!!

1. TOP:

  • Hugo Boss plum colored turtleneck w/ tulip style shoulders
  • Gucci black tank top
  • Ted Baker white baby-doll style & extra high collar coat
2. Bottom: Marc Jacobs dress w/ feather decor.
3. black leggings
4. Shoes: Costum National navy/grayish oxford booties
5. Accessories:
  • Designer friend, Eifl's white & pink mother of pearls necklace
  • Vintage pearl necklace w/ very interesting way of wearing
6. Chanel 08 pre-fall Navy striped reissue 227


I love to carry this Chanel navy striped reissue 227 as a clutch since it is structured & not too soft as my Gray jumbo classic.
