Self-Styling Process!!

Last week, I had my hair trimmed n' my hair stylist told me that I look best w/ long hair.... 

Well, well, well, she is not the only one comments like that.  But I never really believed that until I done having fun w/ short hair now and can't wait to grow my hair back!! ^O^

Although I don't look ugly in short hair, certainly I like myself in long trims better!!

You know, the self-styling is the hardest, no matter it is for your hair, your dress, your make-ups, or even the way you walk, talk, .......EAT.... everything sums up to the way you look in public!! That all becomes your signature style!! 

You know, you don't have to envy those celebrities. They probably are no prettier than you if they don't have a stylist to help them out!!! ^O^ 

I skip the make-ups part since I don't know how to set up a cam recorder yet, so lets jump to the clothes instead. 

Just pretend I am talking along w/ those pic. for now. :P

The ordinary layered tanks n' H&M draped skirt. 

Vintage teal/turquoise leather/suede vest dress (Frienze) for extra color depth. 

The outfit is still plain n' boring.........

There I grab a fur collar and wrapped over the vest dress. Now the whole outfit starts looking "being-styled" w/ a character.

Ah, Ilona's having fun w/ camera shots, she chased the camera wherever i set it up!! :) ...geez, my bruise are all over my knee....

The leather vest dress is really interesting as there are suede patched on both sides!! 

The leather dress has asymmetrical zipper pull n' the rich teal color compliment my skin tone very well. 

I am happy to find something like that ...even it costs me $90..but if a full price item w/ that 60s style, it definitely costs way more!!!

There, my complete outfit for today!!

Chanel 09' bow mesh booties, 09' beige medium/large caviar classic flap, mocha/beige asymmetrical scarf shrug n' fur color.

See you tomorrow..... more styling tips....... xoxo Rachel


R, very nice vintage find! The color is very nice. If ever I am in San Francisco, you need to tell me where to shop for vintage as we don't have that here! :D

BTW, speaking of leather jacket, it reminds me to tell you that I just realize we have the same brown leather jacket from Max & Co, no wonder it looks so familiar! LOL! Do you mind if I ask you how much it is in US? In HK, the price is around US$700, not sure whether USA or HK is cheaper in terms of Max & Co / Max Mara.

Oh, and your SR outfit is very entertaining and whimsical...hahahaha! Reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. I need to watch that movie! :D

you look great both ways of course, but i think i love your short cut more! your short cut looks so chic, stylish, and sharp!
I actually love your new hair style, I think it is super chic, sexy, and looks great with all your stylish clothes. I believe hair is the last step to complete the whole look, and you look beautiful. I will keep it this length. ;)

I like your hair both long and short :)
For me, I like the idea of cutting really long locks short just for the fun of seeing it grow back again. You wear your hair it doesn't wear you, if you know what I mean ;)

Great find on the leather jacket btw!

hey, Mia:
I will make sure I show you some places when you are in USA>

The Max&Co. leather jacket is about $635 which is not that much different in pricing.

hah.. before you see that movie, make sure you already see Charlie n' the Chocolate factory. :)

Thanks, DesignCatalog n'
Design Was Here...

I probably should keep the length n' get a long wig... :P It is good to know that I look good in short hair too. ^O^
litlstrawberry said…
ha, MadaboutU, thank you for such a compliment. The short hair is nice but I do have to flat-ironing it since my hair is kind curvy from previous perm.

Oh, I like the curl of your know the two sides, they look very nice on you. :)
Thanks R! I might really go to San Francisco in mid-November to attend Kai's wedding. Still need to plan coz we're having this huge party for Mason's 3yr old bday end of November. If we really go, I'll let you know in advance. :D

Anyway, I forgot to tell you, I like you in short hair better. Reminds me of Victoria Beckham (and you need that burgundy croc birkin she has...LOL!!). :D So is it good or bad? Hehehehhee! Besides, I really think you look much more younger in your short hair now. :D

Always Posh in my Own Styles.

I had a busy week, plus the last bits of planning for NYC trip.  Dinner and brunch reservations, and we even bought Hamilton musical tickets. Since we are visiting NYC during Memorial weekend, hope we can find some good bargain shopping in The Big Apple too. One thing I am sure with this girls' trip is we are going to have tons of fun before one of my gf goes to law school this fall. It is a clean slate for her and I am sure it will also be a magnificent journey down the road. 
Back to my all time passion: Fashion. I like fine garments and I collect them to do mix and match over past seasons. However, what makes my style unique is intricate cuttings and perfect fitting that flatter my body. I don't follow trends just to claim I am fashion forward. I have my own methods of sorting through marketing injected advertisements for the best seasonal looks. Popularity isn't gained from what brands you wear but what styles you choose to wear. I wear street fashion in discretion just…

Wedge + Clog ! MINE is Clog + Heel!

pic. courtesy from WhoWhatWhere website.

I came across this Max Mara clog heels. I can't help myself buying it.

Now I am very excited.....why? Cause' it is extraordinary. I love the golden studded along the leather and since I don't like wedge too much, this stiletto is perfect for me.

So, did you see the bottom picture to the right? Kate Olsen!!? or Dree Hemingway's looks might work w/ Max Mara clog heels. ( Whose pic. is the very first one w/ fuchsia vest) Normally I am not a copy cat, but this time, I will see if I have something similar like what she wears w/. Yes, that will be a good start to tackle this pair of heels.

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…
