Faithful Glove Clutch by Alexander McQueen!

I tried this McQueen clutch the day I bought my Chloe orange Sally bag. It actually is not that hilarious by the look when your hand hold it INSIDE the glove. If you don't have that sense of humor, you can take off the leather glove and hold it w/ bare hand!! I love the buttery soft leather and that make-you-happy new leather smell of it! lol


Then I came across this pair of McQueen skull zipper pull engraved peep toe stiletto booties online. I start imaging myself carrying the clutch AND stepping into this provocative booties when.....grrr......girl's night out? a dinner date w/ DH? Oh, well, I hate to admit that even things like these are not practical for me anymore!!! I assume I can't wear them both at the same time w/ my 3 kids around.

Let's just pretend that I could at least rock them in my dream, and no one could lay a hand!!!

Very Prive Christian Louboutin Heels.....How To Get a Grip!

I assume Christian Louboutin Very Prive Heels is the most wanted shoes for every woman. They are so sexy just by looking at them let alone wearing them walking on the street. I receive blandishments every time I wore them out, literally, w/o failing one time so far.

My friend, Michelle, is asking me about how to get a better grip when wearing them. Here is what I do.

1. I don't think brand name of padding matters....but I use both fabric and gel paddings for different parts of underneath my feet.


2. Here is the tricky part, I use 2 big paddings instead of 1 big and 1 small for the particular heel which slips off like hell. In my case, my right heel slides off my ankle a lot. I put one underneath my toes/feet and the other one was placed underneath/align w/ my Achilles tendon. The big padding has more grip and the small one originally designed for the ankle is useless!!! However, I found out that I don't have problem w/ my left heel so I simply use the ankle stripe instead.

I didn't glue it on since I'd like to adjust it every time I put on my shoes.


I don't like gel padding in the front since it makes my feet sweat, however, it is great to be placed along w/ the ankle since a little moist there keeps the heels from sliding off!!


3. Walk w/ your back straightened....this is not just to let your feet grab the heels better but also make sure you walk "sexier" in gesture.

So I have different solutions for my each foot! :)

Ferry Building Fun ...... What A Eye Candy Day!!

I said it, somehow I am loving "black" back these days.....it must be the trend or designer's collection made me think the BLACK color is the new "Statement" color.

I start wearing my Y-3 sneakers which I never wear unless I am going to the gym. Plus, I don't even do jogging since it bored me to death. lol Sneakers to me is more like an accessory than an activity essential!!

We went to Ferry Building in SF city and had a blast there.........all of us had a treat by the city today!!

My ODJ.

1. TOP:
  • ZARA striped shirt
  • So Nice black vest w/ sheer trim (Taiwan brand)
2. BOTTOM: Pleated skirt from my mom
3. Accessory:
  • Sea-grass Fedora hat
  • Fallon brass cross/glass necklace (Barnes New York)
The necklace is featured in BAZAAR "Best summer buy in July".

I like to layer my two necklaces together for a more unique look.

  • Ferburge limited ed. blue enamel/sapphire cross necklace
  • Y-3 black sneakers
  • navy degraded socks
  • Chloe sunglasses
  • Chanel 09 s/s black bow w/ cc dangle earrings
  • Chanel 08 s/s black rodeo drive in large w/ perforated lambskin
I know, my bang looks funny cause' I cut it myself....hopefully, it will look natural after couple days. haha...


I normally spend 1 hour to get dressed for myself then it leaves me not much time to dress up for my 3 kids. It doesn't mean that my kids don't wear nicely when we family going out together, it is just that I need extra effort to unify our family look w/o bargaining w/ my kids about what to wear.

But I thought today is the day, that I have extra energy to unify our look. I even have to sweet talk to my DH to wear the same pattern shirt w/ us. did you notice that this is the first time that all 5 of us wear a family uniform...striped shirt!!!!!!




This is a pretty funny guy sitting on a fake plane!!! How cute is his smile!!!


See, make sure you train your kids well and you make them do the work---pushing the stroller!!!


The sea grass hat really is an accessory too......eventually, I had to carry an umbrella for the sun!!


This will be my Halloween costume, I guess!!



We saw so many scene like this topless or barely-wore young, pretty girls
in the city today. I am suddenly feeling so "ALiVE" again!!! :P


These two elderly ladies are TWINs and you can tell from behind too. You know, I am so moved when seeing they are walking and growing old
together !!


Across street from Ferry building has flea market every Tue. Thur. and Sat. so I bought couple art prints when walking all the way to bloomingdales. The artist gave me her hand-carved artichokes mold after I bought two limited prints from her. I am feeling so so so honored and had to ask her to sign at the back of her original mold.



I think you know why did I buy that strawberry print!!! :)


We had yummy crepes at food court of bloomingdales before we walked back to Ferry building and end our day at Osha Thai restaurant!

When Fashion Is Some "textile" Away!!!

I was browsing through some fashion magazine the other day and didn't realize it was about s/s 09 collection until later. Models are layering so many pieces and dark colored clothes that no one would tell it is s/s apparel at first glance. Then I realized I was admiring this designer: Neil Barrett. He was a former designer for Gucci and Prada's men collection until he launched his own men's wear at fall 1999. Then there is his collection for both man and woman since fall 2006. The most impressive design from Neil is his 2006 collection of training apparel for Italy’s World Cup–winning soccer team.

Here are some of his collection. I definitely can find some similar pieces in my wardrobe if not exactly the same. :)

Yap, waist coat is the most powerful piece to have an instant stylish look.



I will definitely buy that very short version of coat for this f/w collection !!! So fierce!!


If you are wondering why would I want that coat, then here is WHY!!! These days I am looking into another famous designer: Ann Demeulemeester. I saw her 09 f/w collection is full of those masculine shaped little coats.

You know, those little coats really isn't that hard to pull off and I believe it will look great on everyone too.

I didn't forget my CHANEL!!!


1. TOP:
  • American Apparel white tank
  • BCBG taupe w/ ruffed detailed vest in zipper closure
2. BOTTOM:
Zara gray high-waist tapered pants
3. ACCESSORY:
  • Black bow thin belt from URBN
  • Chanel 09 s/s multiple pearl necklace
  • Chloe orange Sally 09
  • Max Mara black platform clog
I am so glad that I bought this pair of platform CLOG and I saw similar ones from Miu Miu in full price for this f/w.


The look I inspired from Neil's collection except for I didn't pair black waist coat w/ black pants.

What a Heel!!!!

Today, after I have done Power yoga, and picked up my two older kids from gymnastic class, my friend, Judy and I headed to SF zoo w/ kids.

You probably think I am crazy wearing that heels to the zoo and even my DH thinks I am nuts wearing that jacket when it is 80ºF outside today. Well, I'd like to keep my style when I have the mood to wear that outfit of the day, besides, we are heading SF city and it turns out very windy too.
Later, I'll have dinner w/ my 3 other gals in the evening so I don't think I would have time to change before dinner.

This pair of Stella Luna heels are super comfy and they made great arch for the feet to walk w/. Oh, I do have a pair of flip flop wedge in the car just in case. So, no worry, no shock at all!!

Do you ever feel that you live in the city for too long that even little thing such as seeing "ducklings" swimming upon by side of Mother duck will touch your heart!!

Can you count there are 5 ducklings?!


I was told that the turtle to the right, Sher, is trying to dry out her feet!!! Ah~~ I thought she was doing Yoga stretching like I did this morning!! :)


The sheep wonders: Why don't you quickly feed me, little princess?


You know, I found out Zara clothes have served me well this whole summer!


Do you notice that these male duck have baby blue beak as it attracts female during its mating season? However, it turns back to brown after done mating! (maybe the sun is too bright to see the blue beak!!)


Time flies, Ilona is going to be 2 this summer!!


I can't believe it is almost July, finally I feel summer!!


It is almost 5 PM and the zoo is closed. Kids are saying good-bye to flamingos!!


This is what happened on the way to dinner.....nop, we are not through yet, kiddo!!!


Dinner at Ming's restaurant in Mt. View.


Me? Tired? No Way!!!


We are out the whole day from 9:00 AM and went home around 9:00 PM.......what a day for both kids and us!!

My gal friends, Melody and Irene w/ her Balenciage
Work in white in GW.



pS. This is what I wore yesterday! Look at the pockets, that's what I meant by 3D pockets-- they stand UP. They also add dimension to your outfit.

That Certain Look!!

I carried my new Chloe Orange Sally this whole week in order for me to have a "bounding" w/ the bag. lol ....I said, there is a certain look that absolutely needs a certain style of bag to complete it.

I lurrrve what I had on today for the best match of Chloe Sally so far. :) Somehow I just feel the silk/stain fabric goes very well w/ the vintage/royal look of Chloe Sally bag. So what do you think??

The best Father's Day gift for my DH is to drag him w/ me to do "Power Yoga" this morning. Well, literally, we should celebrate for him but everyone knows, a good health is the only game you don't gamble it w/. Wish kids and I will have numerous Father's Day w/ my darling DH.

MY ODJ.

2. BOTTOM: Vanessa Bruno purple polyester shorts w/ 3D pockets at side
3. SHOES:
  • Purple crystal sandal (going to Power yoga)
  • Max Mara clog platform heels in black
4. BAG: Chloe Orange Sally

I had my deep purple crystals sandal to match up my first Vanessa Bruno shorts before I dressed up. (I had my everything in that free people shopping bag...kinda match well w/ my outfit too!!!)


Outing w/ Abby and Niel, I left Ilona w/ DH at home for a nap.


I am also feeling this Max Mara clog platform!!


I like this kick-back look especially the unbuttoned bag.
