Lazy WEEK!!

I didn't post much.... it is because ... so many reasons that I don't even know where to start. ^O^

In short, life is so complicated after you get married, have kids... so on and so forth!!! I must say life couldn't be more simpler when being single or life only involved just two people!! These days I really focus on my family especially my kids' school work and I suddenly feel the bitter-sweet, endless burden in my life. I have so much things that I want to do for myself but I can't afford the thoughts that might include sacrificing my kids' future.  ... Well, well, well,.... then next things you know, kids are always be your first priority, parents are the ones who are back up your kids no matter what!! I am happy about it but sometimes a good balance of everything in life takes so much efforts to achieve!!

Isn't that the look from Avatar!!!? haha...

Happy brother n' sisters!!

We went to Fritz again in Haynes st. at SF city last weekend.  I love their crepes n' sandiwich even more than their Belgium fries!! :)

I am the one who is looking for a day bed for our living room!! :) I found this furniture company called Propeller which is established in Vancouver and the fabric selection for their furniture is awesome!!! Like my blogger's name, Fashion xenophile, I am following almost everything in fashion world, from RTW, shoes, paintings, accessories to even furniture!! :)

I wore Splendid stripes top n' Lerario Beatriz washed wool vest along w/ 3.1 Phillip lim cropped pants to SF city. 
Ah, the show stopper Nicolas Kirkwood teal heels did make me proud when walking around in Haynes st. last Sat. :P

Isn't Niel the funniest kid!!! :)

Sunday brunch at Santana Row, don't you just love to eat the sweetest thing for breakfast sometimes!!!

Suddenly I felt that I look like I work for Anthropologie when standing outside their display window. So retro, so feminine and so ...... I don't know!! :P

Again, don't forget the giveaway!! Their stuff is really cute and worth to explore their website every now and then!!

Have a great Week!!!

I'll just continue to admire your shoe and bag and wardrobe collection for the time being!

Rachel - I completely agree with your sentiments on this post b/c kids are getting older and more activities and academic to consider. Not to mention that we hope they will not just be bookworms but rather well-rounded in other areas as well. Anyway, applause to you for keeping up with your passion in looking fabulous still.

Those NK heels are very sexy but doesn't seem to comfy for me. Then again, I don't wear heels as well as you do. On the other hand, I'm always always always a huge fan of those Chloe boots. So drool-worthy...

I read you're heading back to TPE sometime around February? That sounds like fun, esp during CNY celebration time.

Hope all is well.
I'm obsessed with that Chloe bag!

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…
