Style?!! What is it!!? Fun, It is!!

Pei asked me how come there is so little pic. on my blog these days....?

Really? You think so?

Hum.... maybe I am too busy in meditating my future instead of blogging them out in words!!

But I tell you what I am thinking about these days: Life is not just simple me, DH n' my 3 kids. It constantly involves myself w/ inner me, my ego, my desire, my plan for myself n' even my responsibilities being a mom, a wife n' to be a good friend. Whichever should come first is always a struggle for me!!!! 

Kids, of course!! You said!! 

But they eventually will be grown-ups. And I want to be prepared before they all gone. I couldn't waste a minute in life w/o having fun n' enjoying it!! 

What? That's what you are worrying about?!! You yelled!! :P

Oh, yea, that's why I can still be myself n' have kids n' be romantic after getting married. -----"Love yourself first." 
(I have consistently being asked about how can I enjoy life, myself n' w/ 3 children around.) I think this is WHY!!!!

Back to .... whatever!!
So it is street style in our era!

If you wear like that, you will see almost people in the whole world wear the same style/clothes as you do!! Nothing wrong w/ that, that's why we call it TREND!! ^O^

My dear friend, Cathy, in her braided hair n' denim look!!

Simple denim trend follower!! :)
Love the pink shirt underneath n' the one w/ pink dots over it. 

I like layering but not all the layering would make us look tall n' slim.... I notice even those models wouldn't look that slender in those pretty lace/floral pants/leggings anymore. :P  Wanna try it??!! :P

I was playing w/ my chiffon w/ crochet trim scarf in my backyard as I notice our tree is in blossom w/ white little flowers.

This is the only trend that I found the hardest to pull it off. Unless you bought them straight from the runway, o.w. i don't think the look can be recreated from our wardrobe!!!!! ^O^

My Modern tribe look!!
The hat is for protecting my hair....but well, why not! It could be part of my style!!

1. Top:
Marc Jacob green dress 
 Escada Vintage sweater
2. Accessory:
Viviene Westwood floral sheer leggings
Africa white turquoise spike necklace w/ silver square beads (From designer friend, Elfi)
white leather belt
3. Shoes: Calvin Klein
Maybe I can carry a sword in that belt..... hehe.......  Samurai!! LOL

Have a good Wednesday!!! xoxo Rachel


In that sreet style photo you posted I really like the first look and I can totally imagine you pulling it off!! I know what you mean about loving yourself. I also think it's imortant and key in staying young and interesting as opposed to people who get all caught up in marriage and start living only for the kids... Which can be a good thing too, but from my own experience and observation I think kids themselves love it when their parents stay active, fun and interesting, embracing their own hobbies and passions!

that green dress is TO DIE FOR! you're such a stylish mommy!

Rachel, I have been having similar thoughts lately as well.

I think your kids will appreciate you even more later on in their life, when they see that you have not been just a Mom/housewife, but also your own person. It is important to establish yourself now rather than later. Kids grow up and leave eventually, it is important to have something of your own, something meaningful to look forward to in life.

I actually really like the chiffon with crochet scarf that you played around with! I'd love to see more posts with it!
Once again, I love how comfy your vintage Escada cardigan looks!

Good morning, thanksgiving girl. I see you are indulging yourself w/ lots of healthy sweet treats these days.... thanks for the receipt. I think I want to make pan cakes for breakfast this weekend for my kids again!!
Thanks again.

Yes, your observation is very detail n' that's very true. You know, sometimes I am wondering if moms put too much energy/love to their sons, and that's why mother-in-law n' daughter-in-law are always hard issues over the centuries. haha... so I am not going to make it hard for my children. Let them handle their family when they are all away from home. :P

Thanks, Charles. Your style always has a whimsical easygoing spirit in it.
litlstrawberry said…
Thanks, tam. You too, have a good Thursday.
litlstrawberry said…
hey, Mona: thanks for supporting here. You know, I have been thinking of taking some classes about styling... you know, just to strengthen the skill of colors, materials..sort of!!!

Anyway, I guess every now and then we women would think about the same thing then deal w/ it our own way. Let's keep up our HARD work n' pampering ourselves at the same time. haha...
litlstrawberry said…
thanks. LS. I love that scarf too n' it is even great for spring/summer time. :)

Hi, Tam Pham: thanks, and I know, green dress is always a pop of "style". :) ha~

Thanks, Janettaylor, you are always very sweet!!

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. …

Kate Spade Store Coupon 20% OFF, DIY of Marni Runway Look!!

I really need to organize my blogs into tags/categories so it will be easier for you girls to navigate on. But right now, thanks to Google for its incredible searching mechanism that I hope you still can find something useful here other than seeing me fancy and vain in the pic. haha....!!!! lol.

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…
