Something NEW, Something OLD, Something Ancient!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend n' decided which gift you want for Valentine's already!!!! :) I know, best yet, you already got it!!!! ^O^

I found some pretty high fashion pictures over the weekend and my friend, Cathy, also shared some cool ones w/ me. So here they are!!

Cathy loved that pair of Omelle cut-out heels worn on the model!!
High fashion + exquisite furniture (That's a lamp) = aesthetic pleasure!!!

I can totally copy the look of patterned purple tights + Christian Louboutin cut-out fringe heels w/ my Daddy Long legs floral hosiery. 

They are considered past season styles but isn't it just like when we review the past, we also step into the future!!  :) 


I think I am going to try the look w/ tights for this heels in the future. 

This is current Ferragamo 2010.  Confusingly, I found a picture and there is a man's pants which looks just like that from 2008 fashion magazine.

Ferragamo 2010 Runway

2008 New York "STREET" magazine

That's Miss Sixty 2010 s/s new jeans.
Same style w/ that BAT-like details. 


1. Top: 
  • J Crew yellow-mustard-green turtle neck 
  • DKNY scarf cardigan
2. Bottom: Diesel white jeans
3. Accessory: 
Louis Vuitton 06' LTD perle vernis tote
Louis Vuitton 08' red heart coin purse
Max & Co. brown oversize buckle belt
4. Shoes: Jimmy Choo snake skin boots

That's my tradition to carry that red heart coin purse on Valentine's!! :)

Now we step into ancient (not literally)..... the 80' Escada drape cardigan!!
I found it at a second hand shop. 

It states: Made in West Germany by SRB....which I have no idea what's SRB?

It is blended w/ superkid mohair, wool, n' alpaka which makes it super warm when wearing.

Love the detail patterns, ribbon piping and it is such a classic piece. 

I love this cardigan so much that I have been wearing it around n' outside the house this whole week. DH feels it a little creepy .......... oh, well...... :P

Ok, time for some good movies!! 

NOTE: Do buy a Valentine's cards .... whether it be for your hubby, BF, or even friends, wouldn't everyone love an old fashion way of greeting!!

See you!!!


Adorable picture of you with the kids :) Your boy looks like a ninja haha

I like the look of the CL fringe booties with the leggings, so looking forward to seeing you try it out yourself. And in this pic that your friend Cathy liked, I like how the cut out booties go so well with those cut out leggings. Oh, and I love DKNY cardy with the drapery detail in the front, I've been a sucker for this style for a while now!! Whenever I see something Like that I just want to buy it right away lol I like how with some of the particular designs you can tie the front pieces in a knot, have you tried that? I have one that looks a lot like yours, almost the same color, just sleeveless and I loved wearing it over a simple white tank in the summer.

I actually didn't end up buying the top, I've been a good girl and haven't bought myself anything recently since I'm trying to save up for something else- except I bought a charm for my Pandora bracelet the other day which doesn't really count haha.
Anyway, I love your different outfit posts as usual and I love that cute little V-day themed welcome sign you hung on your door.

I actually don't know what I want for V-day, but I told dBF to surprise me because I'm tired of always picking my own gifts.
I actually got him his gift already and I was so excited about it because he has been looking for it for more than half a year that I ruined the surprise and told him about it and gave it to him already.

hey, Julia:
I know exactly what you are talking about buying that drape-like cardi/vest/.... it is an instant style pop thing!! :) I got couple things like that "drape" look and I had this DKNY cardi. in 2008 and never really wears it since blazer becomes my first option to go w/ my outfits. I can imagine this kind of drape cardi. would look trec chic on you!!!

Oh, I totally want to try leggings/tights w/ cut-out booties, heels or peep-toe shoes and sometimes it looks better that way than wearing w/ bare feet. :)

hi, ls:
Saving is always good as I think I am in a ban starting from "today" :P.

I went on line to check out what's Pandora bracelet...and wow, it is pretty!! And yes, a charm doesn't count so you just keep up the hard work of SAVING for BIG!!! :)

Oh, I am preparing Valentine's party for couple families and I wanted to try Swiss cheese fondue at I am researching how to make that at home..AND I still need to buy fondue set first. haha..... Hopefully I can make it so no one will be starting!

Yes, I always ruin the surprises when giving gifts to my I am too excited and want to see his reaction....well......

Ah, wish you got something special from your dBF n' of course, anything from him would be special already!!!
so nice blog..

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!!!!

4/12 (Sun.) Day 2 in Vegas w/ Girl Friends!

First of all, I have to thank Irene for coordinating every one's schedule to make this dream trip happen.

On Sunday, we planned to treat ourselves to a beauty spa in Mandalay Bay Hotel. Our appointment at The Bathhouse spa is at 1 PM. But since yesterday we stood up so late, we didn't wake up until 11 AM. However, neither Cathy nor I think we actually fell asleep as we were still so exhausted when waked up. And I am the one who slept the least but got up from the bed the first. I went to gamble alone after clubbing till 5 or 6 in the morning. Well, the time in Vegas is too luxury to stay in bed anyway. lol Pei probably slept not bad at all as I can hear she snores persistently throughout the night. haha............

We each had either Swedish or Deep-muscle massage. I recall my last massage is when I traveled back to Taiwan. My Dad took us family to Thailand and he called for two people to our room. In Thailand, most massagers' body frame are small-built but I am surpri…
