Still Winter ??!! ~~~

Pei shared this pic. w/ me cause' she liked the contrast of white peep-toe booties against black ties.
Except the booties, the whole look kinda reminds me a "sheep" though!! :P

I was also eyeing on those cut-out/peep-toe white booties since last spring but never occurred to me that I'd actually find a gorgeous pair unintentionally.

 I picked a pair socks of mine which has orange color around the toe n' green in the calves to play up more fun/warm color w/ my ensemble.

Here is a narrative of this New Designer: Laurence Dacade
Inspired by David Bowie’s erotic androgyny, the French designer—also part of the creative team behind Chanel’s shoes, has created a range of sheer zipback boots, Verner Panton–esque lace-ups, and pointy patent wing tips. (

My ODJ.

On Monday, we girls hanged out together again n' chat about what are we going to do on Valentine's day and girl's night out afterward. unexceptionally, we talked about IT bags, shoes ..... .... then couple of us also talk about a "BAN" on luxury spending or a big "Saving" - a better put, that we'd spend wisely this year.  ^O^ 

..... Well, chatting is just a random gesture of our lips n' tongue!! ....

Here I share Yu's style w/ you. There are so many intriguing details on her outfit that day.
She made that two pom poms out of hermes' ribbon to dress up her A. Wang bag!!

H&M croset top, tartan gray shirt w/ ribbon trim, Marc by Marc Jacobs zipper pulls necklace!

A. Wang Coco duffel bag, Christian Louboutin 08' booties.

Rachel - You girls look absolutely fabulous! I notice you guys like many of the same pieces, i.e. H&M corset top, H&M embellished taupe shirt, Alex Wang bag... but you each exert your own interpretation to it, which is quite refreshing to observe. For this post, I have to say Yu's ensemble is stealing my <3! I love that ribbon-detailed MJ shirt along w/ her zipper necklace. It's quite cool that she used the Hermes ribbons to make those pompoms. I've seen an entire thread on tPF teach ppl how to do it, but I haven't tried it myself. It adds an unique look to the AW bag.

So what are you plans for Valentine's day? It's right on the same day with CNY day so I think we are stuck with spending it with inlaws. :P So I might ask DH to celebrate early or something.

How are you? DOne your online traffic school?

yes, I think we hang out together too often. :) Yu, pei, Cathy, Ann, Isabel and I probably talk or meet at least once a week. Once one of us find something, we spread out the words.....geez, which is also bad that I can't resist good deal or pretty stuff.... (I think when you say I am sick, you also mean my buying addiction...hahaha...) Anyway, some self-control here....... .... Oh, Yu's shirt if from H&M not MMJ (only the necklace) and so we joked that we should shop at H&M more often to score really great designed stuff!!! hehe..

I think Yu hanged out in H forum quite often than I I don't at all now. Maybe that's where she learns how to do that pompoms.

I have V. party this Sat. at my house along w/ other 4 couples w/ a romantic swiss cheese fondue party. (hopefully it is romantic enough...hah...) Next week, I have a girl's spa meet in SF city w/ Renee n' dinner. Then the following week, we 4 girls will have a girls night out in SF city...well, sure this month is a whole month Valentine's celebration for us!!!!! :)

DO you have some activity in mind w/ your DH?

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…
