The Fur Vest and My Friend.

My friend, Isabel, enables me to get this FOX FUR vest from SAKs.  As a matter of fact, all 3 friends of us bought this fur vest because of Isabel. It is a good deal for $395 down from original $795!!

I love this fox fur vest for its grayish and brownish color. Plus, the leather trim along the zipper as I am not a big fan of zipper closure on any coat except for leather jacket. 

This outfit is based on my style but accessorized by Isabel...haha...yes, she insists that I should put on my Hermes Kelly riding boots and carry my Gris T. Birkin for a ultimate luxurious look!!! ^O^

I really am not going any place fancy today except for a tight schedule dedicated for my children.  Therefore, a look of "highly maintained" instead of looking as a "high-maintenance" Pairs Hilton is what I want to achieve!! :P 




Hum... I should adjust that fur collar first....

My ODJ. 

1. Top:
  • Derek Lam cashmere tank

Zip up the vest for a furry collar~~

Tomorrow is a tutu day for me.... 
Ah~ Please give me a warm and sunny day!!! ^O^

Beautiful color palette! The fur vest looks very sophisticated and I like this chic look! Awesome first picture too - somehow you look soooooo ladylike even when weraing those boots! Have a great weekend :)

That's such a chic outfit! From the fur vest to the Hermes riding boots to the Birkin!
The embroidery on the vintage Dior cami is also exquisite. It's funny but it's difficult to find such amazing embroidery in modern clothing anymore.

Rachel - what a classic and ultimate luxury look! You even have the I-belong-in-Upper-Eastside-Manhattan-look! :D

I'm excited for you that you are all set for Hawaii! I have a feeling that wherever you go, you can make it really exciting and fun-packed for you and S, and for the kids.

Isabel gives fab suggestions on good deals and great values. I miss her ODJs too. Maybe you can have her "guest star" in your blog more often.

Have a great weekend!

hehe... Betsy: I know, I should have asked Isabel send her ODJ over and then I can post it. Ok, maybe I will ask her then. :)
And thank you so much for your high compliments and I do wish I can visit NYC very soon in the future...... w/ my gal friends ONLY!! haha..

Oh, gotta thank you a million that lending me that Hawaii tour book. I am reading it b..but I have to accelerate the speed more and I think I might want to reserve the whale watching since I am afraid the spring break's crowd.
litlstrawberry said…
Yes, LS, the craftmanship these days seems very stiff... everything is now can be done by computer too. I love every stitch of that Dior cami.:)
litlstrawberry said…
Oh, ha, Julia: thanks, dear. DOes that mean that I have a look of grace?!! :)

You have a good weekend too.

Hi Rachel,

litlstrawberry said…
hehe...Isabel, you and Fiona both need a pair of Kelly riding boots
that's for sure!! :)

I really love Dior cami. Etsy is your place where you find amazing vintage Dior camis. :-)

Cristina said…
Ah, the beautiful Birkin.....!!
It would be perfect with every outfit in the world, heheh!
I love your bags collection Rachel.
And I agree with Julia, the color palette is great.
Happy Easter to everyone ^_^

Hi, Janet: thanks. I love etsy site but never even try neither Ebay nor etsy to buy anything yet.

I still love to see and feel everything first if I could. :)
litlstrawberry said…
Ah, thanks, Cristina. As my friend points out that I love "warm" and earth tone of colors. Assuming I do wear mostly those warmth color palette from my wardrobe.

Yes, a Birkin goes wonder for every outfit...even a tank and t-shirt and jeans!! Instant glamor!! But I really don't carry Birkin that much since it is heavy and only once a while to satisfy my inner vain haha....

You have a good Sunday evening too!!!

Rachel - I'm sure you will make Hawaii fun whatever you guys decide to do. I know whale-watching isn't the only thing for kids, I've heard great things about dolphin watching and snorkeling tours as well. In fact, if there is a tour company that offers a kid-friendly snorkel day trip, I would recommend taking the kids because they make it so easy for everyone to enjoy. Even Sophie got a chance to put on a life vest and get on the view board. She still talks about the turtles and fish she saw on the Big Island.

Let me know if you need any other info, I'll be happy to help. :D
Rachel, actually it's true about coffee! When you have a cup of good grounded coffee (none of that instant stuff) it subsides your appetite. Just like ciggarets, which I don't recommend though haha So yeah, it can be helpful if you have some unwanted sweet cravings or something :) I actually have a cup of coffee and a little dark chocolate as one of my snacks almost every day!

And it's funny how those Russian tea cakes sound nothing like you'd find in a traditional Russian cuizine! So funny :))

You look so posh like in this outfit, loving the boots to death. aaah.

Isabel had some good ideas here. And I love the fox fur! I love fur and can't stand the fake stuff. I'm pretty sure I really need some riding boots...

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!!!

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…
