Packing Light (clothes for now) ~~ to Taipei!!

So, couple days ago, I pondered what kind of "theme" of my outfits I'd pack in my luggage to Taipei and Indonesia!! Then I read MadsAboutYou's comment on my last post: what's not to wear when she travels to Philippine? 

That's quite a good way of eliminating USELESS clothes and keeps packing tidy! If you must looking fab. for some reasons, or some parties, .... there is always a place to SHOP, isn't it!!

Then I thought about my way.... "the theme"-- Ah, ~ PRINTS.... all kinds of prints. They do best when mix and match together. Digital or ink-jet, animal, floral, abstract,......doesn't matter!!! ^^

Other than Marni's vivid color combination, I love the conventional ways of doing prints of Dries Van Norton's collection.  I waited for sales to embrace myself in some busiest but also the pretties prints of his collection. (His prints is not digital print and thus takes a lot of work a.k.a expensive for those intricate prints to complete layers by layers.) 



An art!

Dries Van Norton 08/09 A/W n' 09/10 S/S!


Love it!

Definitely want to challenge it!! :P



... some accessories, maybe? 

Not an official debut of my Dries Van Norton.... lol

Those should be enough for a month traveling.
I pack those samples from masks, eye gels, moisturizer, and lots of cleanser.



There are 3 categories in my packing. 

2 Jean shorts in different lengths (Helmut Lang and Genetic Jeans), Helmut Lang purple suede legging/trousers and J brand twill jeans.

These are my "theme"... prints! (Dries Van Norton and Michael Angel)


Here and there are some shirts, tanks, and maxi dress in case I needed them to do mix n' match!! (From Erin Kleinberg, Vince, Kain Label and American Vintage)

2 LBD, they are easy to do a proper dress-up w/ accessories for any event. (Burberry and Stella McCartney quilted fitted dress)

I will get down to SHOES soon........ ^O^

Love what you pack! I think I should learn from you. I dress so very sloppily when I travel - almost don't want to look at the mirror. lol.

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. …

4/12 (Sun.) Day 2 in Vegas w/ Girl Friends!

First of all, I have to thank Irene for coordinating every one's schedule to make this dream trip happen.

On Sunday, we planned to treat ourselves to a beauty spa in Mandalay Bay Hotel. Our appointment at The Bathhouse spa is at 1 PM. But since yesterday we stood up so late, we didn't wake up until 11 AM. However, neither Cathy nor I think we actually fell asleep as we were still so exhausted when waked up. And I am the one who slept the least but got up from the bed the first. I went to gamble alone after clubbing till 5 or 6 in the morning. Well, the time in Vegas is too luxury to stay in bed anyway. lol Pei probably slept not bad at all as I can hear she snores persistently throughout the night. haha............

We each had either Swedish or Deep-muscle massage. I recall my last massage is when I traveled back to Taiwan. My Dad took us family to Thailand and he called for two people to our room. In Thailand, most massagers' body frame are small-built but I am surpri…
