Random Diary (1) ......The Pattern:both the behavior n' my clothes' stripes!!

I was talking to my friend, Isabel, on the phone yesterday. We were talking about how are they going to celebrate their 10 years wedding anniversary this year.  

....... I am envious, not only their marriage is 3 years longer than mine but also she is getting a HUGE diamond ring for it. haha....! 

Vain?!! Of course, otherwise this world would be so darn boring , right?!!! Lol.

We also talked about people's success is not a random cause.  It is luck + certain pattern!! She recommends me to read about a book called "Outlier" which has more detailed analysis about how different people comes from different backgrounds become so dominant successful in certain works of life!!!

Ok....so how does it relates to my behavior pattern

Well, Isabel said that it seems I would shop for vintage stuff quite intensively during the end of a year n' early of the year!! ^O^


Ha~~ right!!!! I thought about my spending behavior... it is because everything on sale is past season n' current season stuff is still priced insanely high. Plus, I have not made my mind what's worth to spend in a full price!!!  ^O^ That's my spending behavior......... alright, nothing to do w/ the book neither!!

*sigh* Recession makes inflation rise exponentially!!!!  

My ODJ!!

1. Top:
Splendid stripes tee
Kate Spade no-collar coat
2. Bottom:
Y-3 big pocket cropped pants
3. Accessory:
cashmere blend knitting scarf
Diesel white mesh suspender 
Louis Vuitton silver hoop earrings w/ 3 charms
Chanel 08' multiple pearl necklace w/ rhinestones
4. Shoes: Vintage Kumfs brown woven oxford

It is better/structured to add a scarf around the neck for no-collared coat. 
I think that makes your ensemble look more intact from head to toe!!

You know, I think those two pockets fit in couple bottles n' diapers...haha..


My recent furniture purchase is less than $300 just for the look!!!

Don't forget the random diary part 2.

Hi R! I like your look...coz I love stripes. Hahahaha! Your vintage oxford shoes are very nice....I'm inspired to get one too from Church's. The problem is, it always looks so nice on someone else's feet, but not mine. :P

Anyway, thanks so much for asking Yu about her Lindy. I think I'll get that in Paris when I go in June. :D

As for your beige caviar Chanel, may I ask if the color code is "21209" or "20129"? Coz my friend and I never heard of 20129...hahaha..I was wondering if that's something new or a type error....:P Hope you can help confirm as my friend is getting excited. Hahahahaah!

Thanks again!

Have a nice fruitful weekend with your family and friend! Enjoy!

Cheers,
Mia

love your vintage oxfords! I have been buying vintage myself...it's so much more exciting searching for one of a kind pieces that you know no one else is wearing the same time you are! I've been reading your blog for a while btw, just not making comments...you have really great style and i like how you make all your outfits work together :)e
I agree, non collar coats looks great with scarfs! Love your striped top too. And don't you worry about your friend's 10 years anniversary... Just a few more years and you'll be there too ;-)

And regardless of what exactly was that you bought, I like all things pictured - the table, the lamp and the stool! :)

Thanks, btw.

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…
