I gave this (vintage) quilted cropped jacket a face-lift couple weeks ago n' finally I got it back...

The result?!!

100% satisfied!!

My tailor understands exactly what I wanted to do for this Millard Fillmore MF-13 jacket. And she did a superb job!! 
(review: Millard Fillmore is United State 13th president aka. the Father of Contemporary sports wear, remember?!!)

Here is the look before~~
Cute jacket but seem not tailored enough to fit me...

After done the transformation!!

The puffy princess sleeves perfectly show the softness of guilt in my opinion n' more cropped length gives this jacket a trendier look!!

 This quilted jacket is a high quality embodiment of true natural classic!!

This is my today's inspiration -- Marc Jacob color block taupe Mika bag from 08'!!

There are camel, navy, military green, purple, orange, gray and yellow(gold bracelets) on me.... a rainbow color!!! ^O^


  • Accessory:
Hermes orange lacquer/horn necklace
Chanel 08' gray flat mary-jane w/ charms design

Have a great weekend!!! xoxo Rachel

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. …

Aren't those 3 capes classic n' gorgeous!!!!

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…
