Throwing On Everything....yes, even Kimono!!!

This is my new GIVENCHY Tinhan hobo in black n' gold-toned studs!!! 
I don't really have a perfect outfit to pair it w/... since i am still drooling over my Proenza Shouler yellow PS1 clutch and carry it everywhere these past couple day.  But i thought Gray outfit and feminine skirt could add a fun element w/ GIVENCHY studs hobo in my outfit.

If not because I am sure that I bought them as a PAIR, I thought they were misplaced together......the polka dots and stripes are reversal colors from each other. 



I was digesting some fashion mag. and loves both simple elegant and casual chic styles, they are alternatives in our daily style. And if you are not bored of striped look, here are some more. They are uber chic!!! (picture credit to SPUR)

MY ODJ.

Kimono style was a conundrum to me.... as I am not a Japanese nor knowing much about the history of Kimono wear. I don't even remember who bought me this Kimono, either my DAD or my MIL. 
I once used it to cover up my bathing suit at the beach but nothing else. I certainly believe everyone would easily drawn by the beauty of Kimono for its silkiness, and the vivid print...but unless it is a festival, no one would really wear it on the street!!! :) Especially here, the conservative silicon valley!! :P

Today is a busy day for me and I definitely am in this whole ensemble doing chorses...... if you ever recognize me, I'd love to meet you!! ^O^ (But if you are too embarrassed to see me in Kimono in public, I understand!!) hahahahaha...  

Have a fun afternoon!!

Hey there! Honestly, I think you can totally pull off even the kimono look!

I love your Givenchy hobo, it looks great on you!

Have a great evening!

THanks, Mona. I think if I have chance to visit Japan again, I'd buy MORE...so I can hang them up on our wall as a decor. :)
Hahahahaha R! Doing house chores in your Kimono? I'd love to see you in action! LOL!

Oh well, come to think of it, some Japanese ladies also do house chores in their traditional kimono (the more fitted type with ties around them), so I guess it's ok.

Anyway, I actually like the color of your kimono. It's a nice spring turquoise /aqua blue color.

And congrats on your new Givenchy studded Tinhan tote!! It's a chic bag. But I wonder if it's easy to use as the opening is so close to the armpit area? Do you just pull the side zipper down to get your things out? Anyway, you said you got it at a sale right? I just found out that my friend who works in LVMH can have a 40% off on Givenchy stuff coz Givenchy belongs to their group...grrrr! I should have waited before I paid for my Pandora bag!

BTW, I don't remember if I asked you about this. Do you mind telling me where you bought your YSL iridescent taupe tribute? Is it from Nordies or Saks?

Thanks again! Enjoy your new bag!

Cheers,
Mia

P.S I like your 1st outfit more with the tutu underneath.

LOVE how you pulled off the androgynous look! your little girl's outfits are so cute and hip as well.

The yellow clutch on previous post is TDF! what a stunning color.

wow nice new bag!!! You lucky girl!!! It must be nice and roomy and I really like your outfit with the tanks and the pants.
Have a nice weekend!!!

I know, Mia, now as long as I like something, I'd try my best to HOLD the thoughts of buying it right away.... if not, I'd just go for it. Like the YSL shoes, I'd buy it for full price but for the bag...they are over $1000 or even mine is $2000 so a "deal" is very important.LVMH has their net profit declined over 23%...so I am not surprised that such huge discount for their other branding...Givenchy. Besides, they also broaden another line for Givenchy lovers..but middle class, will be lunched this October!! We shall see. :)

I got mine for 25% off w/o tax so which is not bad at all. The tax is almost 10% so let's just say that I got 35% off almost? haha.. I'd wish I bought the petroleum color though.

FYI, I bought my YSL at nordi.

Good luck and talk to you soon.

Have a nice weekend...

hi, Susan: yes, the Tinhan tote is great and is very convenient when reaching in for stuff...the zipper will slide down itself when you reach for stuff...which won't bother me. The handle around the shoulder is more comfortable than my Chanel rodeo drive which always cuts my shoulder w/ the silver chain..... well... I have not really carry my Givenchy...shall think of something to give her a official debut!! haha..

have a fun weekend!!! It is almost summer and gotta plan a lot of activities for family, don't you think?!!

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…
