Halloween Trick or Treat!! The Best Lashes!!


After done my last acting class, we met up w/ friends in Belvedere st. at Cole Vally of SF city!

Kids and adults all had a blast there. The neighbor blocked the whole street and every single house was decorated nicely or should I say "spookyily" for Halloween!!!!

I didn't prepare a costume for myself this Halloween but I did a special make-up instead. I got the inspiration from Chanel 09 Fall runway look but is a bit My version!!

Instead of attaching sequins or lashes at bottom, I found myself a super fun/gorgeous fake lashes from Make-Up-For-Ever.

I got tons of compliment on those lashes today and almost everywhere I went have people saying they might/should do those lashes in the future. :) Those sweet compliments from those strangers made my day!!! haha..


The camera/light fade most of colors on me.
I use MAC pearl shadow around eye corner, smash Box baby pink shadow all over upper eye lid and Mac Gold shadow just above the crease.


Enjoy the pic.


That is my friend, Karen's dog, Daisy!!!




he he.. just got my prize~~~ Candy!!!!



My ODJ.

1. Costume National C.N.C black sheath dress w/ deep V back and ruffle trim.
2. Hermes Kelly riding boots
3. Chanel 09 black caviar Mini flap




Those lashes w/ white mini balls are perfect highlight for my eyes under the mask!!!


This is the most hilarious costume/theme in the entire neighbor!!
Marley & Gloria (in the movie: Madagascar), the zebra & the hippo are dancing behind the window!!!!


Look how many adults and children are fascinated by the dance moves of Marley & Gloria. haha..


Niel and Irene's son, Ethan are counting how many candy they've got the whole time.


Irene is 6 month pregnant w/ her second son and she is still so energetic!!!
I am happy for her!!




This is one of the moment that kids (even Ilona) would not be afraid of "ghosts"!! he...


We really love the neighborhood and everyone seems had so much fun!!


We dinned at Japanese restaurant after trick or treat w/ Irene's family.
It is already 10 PM when we got home!!

The Puffy Sleeve Trend OR 3 Puffy Sleeves!!


Photograph by: Stefano Rellandini , Reuters


photo credited to glamour.com
I know I would wear anything which is considered to be a current trend!!!

I mean, WHY NOT!!

I already bought couple pieces since last fall w/ bold shoulder (from 80s'), big shoulder, puffy shoulder, ruched shoulder whatever you call it so I don't think it is even that big deal just to try it and have fun w/ it!!

But I know I wouldn't want to break an arm and a leg for those trendy things. Besides, we women would think the designs are so trendy, the looks are so fashion forward, but honestly, how many MEN would really appreciate it!???

I don't know, it depends on how you pull if off, right?!!

I know I found myself another way to wear the big should when I tried to recycle/re rotate my wardrobe and came up this I-kind-like-it and so does DH outfit of I call it 3-puffy-sleeve fun outfit!!!!


After done Abby's costume parade at school, we 3 girls had a nice afternoon shopping at Stanford shopping center!!

Tomorrow is Halloween and we are taking kids to SF city for trick or treat and maybe watch the movie "Where the Wild Things Are?" before that.


Friday evening always is one of the busiest evening for our family. Abby and Niel both have their tennis lessons and I normally have to/want to COOK so they won't be starving after their practice. Also, DH absolutely doesn't have the patient to wait for a table for dinner at Friday evening!!



Abby still loves pretending to be a baby sometimes.


I cook, I shop, I yell, I cry, I do fashion, therefore I am!! :)


Sorry about the messy face of me after done cooking!!! Oilly!! yuk!! haha...

My ODJ.

1 TOP:
  • Orange Boss purple turtleneck w/ shoulder details
  • Fornarina black wool blouse w/ 3 puffy sleeves
2. Bottom: LaRok tulip high waist skirt
3. Accessory:
  • zigzag hosiery
  • Michael Kors Justine brown oxford lace up boots
  • Chanel black caviar mini flap



I am happy as very piece is recycled from my wardrobe and I got myself a FASHION look for free!!

Happy Halloween, girls!!

I will have a random pick tomorrow night for the GIVEAWAY and announce on SUNDAY!!
So make sure you have at least 3 comments and added yourself on my blog!!

Good LUCK!!!



Real OVER the Knee high Boots!


Please click on the Image to see Bill Cunningham's report of the trend for Knee high boots!!
Thanks to Betsy who shares this video clip w/ me after I told her I just got myself a real pair!!


If I gave up buying a pair of military inspired boots, I think at least I am allow to follow another trend of rocking in OVER the knee-high boots instead.

Mine is from Joie. I said that I don't want to spend a fortune for those trendy boots but I seem can't find something cheaper available any more or ones catches my eyes for under $300.

After watching those Parisian rocking their black outfit, I am inspired to dress something
eccentric as well. Just for the sake of being BOLD and having FUN!!! Yay!!~~

I would say this pair of
Joie over the knee high boots has great looks and nice leather feel. However, I wouldn't recommend it for not-so-tall-gals for that extra fold-over look!! :P


Picture ME in the Pairs!!! :P

My ODJ.

  • 1. Top:
  • Linda Loudermilk organic racer back dress w/ organza detail at bottom back
  • Grey vest
  • Maggie cropped blazer
2. Accessory:
  • Cheetah leggings
  • Joie OVER the knee high boots
  • Flying lizard design gold necklace w/ brass n' turquoise
  • Gold bangle (gift from NM)
  • blue semi-precious stone ring
  • Chanel mini flap




There are zippers at two sides of this boots and it is so easy to wear and comfortable at the same time.


I bought this Linda Loudermilk dress at her trunk show last Thursday.
It is half of the retail price!! yay!!



You know where did I take those pic. at???!!!
hah... The back yard of my son's piano teacher's house. I figured for that half hour wait, I can make a great use of it!!!

Me, wired!!? You just start getting to know me, girls!! haha....






I know we normally shouldn't have head to toe following the trends but I would say it is a safe bet for pairing animal print hosiery w/ knee high boots together!!!! :)

I will find more ensembles from my closet to rock this pair of knee high boots in the future!!!

Saturday is Halloween, do you girls have your costume prepared or decide how to wear your make-up already? You at least have to have either ONE ready!!!!!

True Red? Giorgio Armani Rouge 400 n' 09' Limited Edition Silk 95!

As promised, here I am in Givenchy Pearl 24, and dashes YSL Golden Gloss shimmering at lower lip.




I think my dress and my necklace make enough statement, I should leave my face as plain as possible. .... hum... since I am not walking on the red carpet!! :)


The jade earrings is originally paired w/ one of the necklace (w/ the same jade beads) I chained into this whole chunk.

BTW, my final touch "rhinestone w/ brass necklace from J Crew".

I really want to find something cheap in thrift shop but since I don't have time I decided to use something w/ great cutting of rhinestones. Hope this piece looks very high quality w/ that extra $98 of J Crew necklace. :P

Well, the price is actually not too bad, it costs me total of $44 (2 necklaces found in Loehman's) + $98 (J Crew) + $9 (chain) + $8 (ribbon + 3 layers mini pearl necklace) + $40 (section of 14K gold w/ jade beads necklace) = $199!!! Besides, I can take off every single necklace in the future and wear them separately.

Yay, I am genius!!
haha...:P


This is before I wrap it around to make as a whole piece.


I had to change socks to tights after seeing this pic... kinda weird?!! Oui? Non?

Oh, I am so so happy that I found my Chloe sunglasses which I thought I lost it couple month ago. I almost spend another $300 to buy it back.... geez, I am glad somehow I didn't!!!

Here are my 2 other best friends, Cathy & Yu who got the same Chloe sunglasses while we were in Vegas this year!! See, it flatters everyone. haha..


Cathy


Yu (Hope you feel better now after recovering from the flu.)

I got this Marc By Marc Jacobs dress last week at Guilt.com (Thanks to Claudia who introduced me this site.) and realize that maybe a lot of people might get the same dress, so I think so hard to play w/ this dress to make it so MY style!! :P Oh, ... I think the necklace really make the dress unique!! haha... One of a kind!!!



  • Ted Baker baby doll white coat
  • patterned gray hosiery
  • Betsy Johnson ankle strap n' golden stiletto heels (just because the heels are gold which matches my earrings and some chains of necklaces)
  • designer friend, Elfi Altendorfer's jade beads earrings
  • My creation of stranded necklace
  • Chloe orange Sally bag 09 s/s



haha..Ok, I think I am way off my topic!! RED... lips. I don't know why I am so talkative today. Thanks to Angela who got me really want to find out a RED which flatters my skin tone.



They are (left to right) Rouge 400, ArmaniSilk 09' collection 95 (w/ orange undertone) and my darkest lipstick ArmaniSilk 08' collection 62.


You see, ArmaniSilk 95 (left) has orange tone.
The new lipstick has magnetic cap design (right) and it is easier to re-cap.

Giorgio Armani normally has their limited holiday collection every year. This year the rhinestones design of this no. 95 lipstick is just too gorgeous to pass on! lol I had to get it after the SA said the magic words....Limited Edition! hah...


So what do you think? Obviously, I got both of them .
The upper lip is Rouge 400 and lower lip is Silk95.


This is the look of Halloween. ... of me... (w/ ArmaniSilk 62)...Just Kidding!!! :P

Hope you enjoy this LONGer than ever post and found something entertaining here!!

Gone Crazy About Lipsticks!! Givenchy Limited Rouge Interdit Shine Lipstick!

I tested couple more lipsticks while purchasing another YSL rouge volupte 2 the other day and found an absolutely gorgeous "almost-flatters-everyone" nude color. :P

Ok, maybe I exaggerate it a bit but honestly, when I wear nothing on my face, I don't think the YSL rouge volupte 2 would really flatter my skin tone. It is such an opaque color and almost fully covers the real lip color, I would say a little bit eye shadows or eye liners goes along would complement better.

However, this limited edition Givenchy Pearl Shine lip color (sheer pearl shimmer) looks so natural and blends so well w/ my skin tone. This color gives all the attention to the full pout and my face still looks so nature and glowy because of the simmering effect from the lipstick. I would say apply a maroon lipstick to refresh a no-make-up look is just so cliche and almost outdated.... (no offense) lol. Why not give this a try!!!!


The pink ribbon is just too cute!


I should have a mod. shoot tomorrow w/ this pearl shine lip color on.



Every Sunday our whole family have to accompany my older daughter, Abby, to Los Gotes for her piano lesson. And I am glad there is a farmer's market every Sunday for us to kill a whole hour while awaits.

*sigh* Nowadays, all kids are prince or otherwise princess to every parent!!! lol


I seem to wear less and less my Chanel custom jewelry these days.....
well, since they are timeless, they would last then! :)

1. Top:
  • RUGBY cotton w/ silk trim on ruffles dress
  • Vince leather w/ over-sized collar jacket
2. Accessory:
  • Echo cotton w/ metallic trim n' beads scarf
  • Chloe orange Sally bag 08 s/s
  • Chloe taupe/purple hue tall boots 09
  • Chanel 08 s/s 3 pink camellia w/ gold trim necklace


I know I bought enough boots for this season...but there is always something more in my desire.
Such as Burberry lace up boots, or even Alexander Wang's!! :P

But for now I will be good!! In fact, I just turned down a good deal of buying a coveted Chanel 226 matte black reissue for $2300 from couple seasons back. Hum... I am still hoping a little vacation that we'd go Hawaii for Thanksgiving!!

Hope everyone is saving for their next dream vacation!!!! ;>
