A Long Story!!

Yes, you will need a good cup of tea or coffee and you might also need to reheat it or refill it before you finish this super long post!! Better yet, a yummy cake to go w/ your tea or coffee would be delightful!! ^O^

 Saturday --

1. Mystery spot

"The Mystery Spot is a gravitational anomaly located in the redwood forests just outside of Santa Cruz, California. It is a circular area of effect around 150 feet or 46 meters in diameter. Within the Mystery Spot you will be stunned as your perceptions of the laws of physics and gravity are questioned."

Off we go to Santa Cruz!!

You can stand nearly 10 to 25 degree slop in Mystery Spot!!

You can even climb wall w/ hands-free and rope-free!!

Chanel 08' star brooch!

2.  Vintage Antique Hunting
You can go either Village Fair Antique or Soquel Vintage Antique...etc. However, people would recommend Village Fair Antique as it is selected as one of the best six Vintage collectives must go store. 

This is a collective piece. Vintage lady's wristlet and power compact!!

 I never seen such beautiful things..not even in the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's". ^O^

 Those Porcelain dinnerware is so refreshing w/ that moss green design...too bad I couldn't buy the whole set!! 

That's only a half day activities. 

Sunday -- 
Stay home and relax ~~ it's raining, it's pouring ~~ 

 Inspiration, inspiration, I was very excited to see fall/winter 2010 collection online over the weekend. I found that I don't have a long list for spring/summer collection.... in fact, I couldn't really think of more than 2 things that I'd possess right away!! I know, good for me, DH and our bank account but bad for the economy and sorry to those talented designers. :P

J Crew f/w 2010
 Even J Crew 2010 f/w collection makes me thrilled!! I will leave them for you to browse.

Pretty Homeless!! (Inspired from J Crew)
Yah~ That's DH's comment on my outfit today!! ^%$#&#...



 I layer beige no toe socks w/ pink socks!

I love bubble skirt and this one seem doesn't have that too big volume. :)


Pleated skirt is my another favorite.



Can you tell that those ruffles are actually prints too. So real~~

 Marc Jacobs Fall 2010


I'd really love to wear this in the rain~~..but I guess I still have to carry an umbrella to protect that fur collar from the rain. ^O^

So....those browsing online takes me another hour or so.

Now kids are bored and it is also about dinner time. However, I suddenly had an idea of how to wear my fur vest, brown leather blazer and military green cropped pants altogether.

Kiddos, you all have to wait!! cause' Ideas can't wait..LOl. Mommy has unfinished business to do!! hahahaha....

i like the outfit you will wear on Monday. short+vest+birkin+oxford flat.

every time i see your kids, i have the impression that they dont look like you very much.
litlstrawberry said…
hah.... Julia, I only wish they are more diligent, smarter and prettier than me. But my friends do think they look more like DH and I now.... some angle, some smile, and some poses... don't you think so?

Oh, thank you. Are you going to get one Birkin for yourself!!? :)
Julia said…
Hi Rachel,
i think so, the more they fill out, the more they will start to look like their parent. plus, i dont see them often enough. it can be hard to capture you in them.

regarding birkin. i am not very motivated to get it right now. it is good in places like NYC, Taipei, HongKong,South CA, Japan... if i live in those places, i will get one for the sake of status symbol.

i am thinking about get a BV bag next.

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…
