The Gray, the Taupe and Melissa? Huh? :-P

I kept this pair of Karim Rashid collaborated w/ Melissa heels for the longest time ( 09' collection ) and I didn't plan to divulge the fact that I had them until now!! :P

First, too many shoes that I even forgot all about them.  Oh, yup, that's unusual to me as I always wear my newest purchases ASAP.  
Second, the velvet and pointed/slightly squared toe stopped me from wearing them! 

However, come to think about it, I adore my squared toe Alexander McQueen satin heels very much, don't I!!  Besides, I am loving looking fresh and different all the time, so to speak, then why not giving this Melissa heels a try!! ^O^

It is not Mellisa's trademark..."plastic" but "velvet"!!

Unexpected encounter ..
Do you know that 80% of our vegetables and fruits are pollinated by busy bees!!!!?
W/O them, we can't enjoy as much food as we do now. 
Therefore, if you can walk or bike, don't drive.... ... one of ways to help to fight the air pollution and to keep bees alive! :) 


Frozen yogurt is one of my kids and my favorite sweet treats!!

It is such a beautiful day and hope you enjoyed your Saturday!!

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!!!

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…
