Done Packing and Done Shopping this summer in USA!!!

Now I am totally free to fly back to Taipei and Indonesia tomorrow. I have only one CL heels from Barney left to pick up after I get back.  Other than that, I don't think I'd regret missing any sales here in USA.

Finally I finished packing my shoes and I do bring one pair of sneakers and am going to find a great yoga instructor in Taiwan.... to continuing my journey of fighting the gravity!! ^^

A surprise!!

I think my Chanel bags collection is completed w/ this 226 matte black reissue in silver chain!! 

total 7 pairs of shoes... (for a month stay in Taipei and Jakarta and one week in one of its inner island!!) ^^

These are my two new babies, CL (an exception for me to pick up today) and Manolo!!

My ODJ. 

1. Top: BCBG embroidery polka dot cami.
some nylon/polyester navy shirt
2. Bottom: Drie Van Norton 09' cropped pants
silk skirt w/ drawstring (forgot the brand)
3. Shoes: Manolo Blanhik embossed snake skin sandal
4. Bag: PS1 yellow 


I am going to alter this pants to a slimmer fit on me!!

I still can't decide what to wear on the plane....and I wish I am going to bump into my used-to-be coworkers when flying w/ business class. ^O^

Have a good afternoon!!
xoxo Rachel

OMG! when did you get the reissue?! yes, your C collection is now definitely complete. i'm still yearning for it in GHW and have yet to find one. i'm actually hoping for a older version though and not brand new.

i'm excited that you've included dries van noten in your collection. i've always admired his prints and dresses (from browsing thru other fashion blogs) and i've actually scoured ebay for interesting pieces. the other day, i believe i saw one dress at the NM Last Call in milpitas, but it wasn't my size. i'm patiently waiting for my time for a Dries Van Noten dress or heels... :D

You definitely pack pretty light! I'm a giant fan of your YSL Tribute. Such a versatile color.
Enjoy your vacation R! My in laws are also in Indonesia now for 2 months vacation (MIL is Chinese from Indonesia). They are staying at Jakarta and Lombok....enjoy!

Congrats on your 2 new pairs of sale shoes.

I'm packing now for my Paris trip, but I only wear 1 pair of shoes and I want to bring empty luggage as much as possible! LOL!

Have a great summer!

hehe, amelie: in fact, I just bought some at Marina food supermarket. Those lychee are really juicy and sweet...almost have to watch that sugar hidden in those fruits when indulging them. :)

Thanks. I am sure I will make great use of the time in Taipei.

Hey, Betsy: that's the OLD style. This new shipment is actually the re-make of those OLD style. They do come in GHW and SHW and since it is this spring's new shipment, I am sure you will find GHW anywhere in Nordstrom@@!!!!!!! Call around, I know my sa has quite a few in stock.
litlstrawberry said…
hey, Mia: Bon Voyage!!

Yes, you don't need lots of shoes in Paris... well, in fact, I don't think I need that many shoes in Taiwan neither..but I guess I won't be buying for shoes, I better have enough for myself then. hehe... do enjoy yourself in ever corner in paris and took as many pictures as possible!!!

We are staying at Lake Toba for at least 5 days in Indonesia... family vacation w/ hubby's whole family and my parents are coming alone. We might need to charter a plane to fly there from Jakarta!!! ^^

I guess i will talk to you after you get back from Paris!!!

Rachel -- I meant that I want one 226 matte finish with GHW from the earlier years (earlier than 2008 if I get lucky)... so not really brand new. :D

What are you plans in Indonesia? Are you staying at a resort with family? Or are you just staying at inlaws home?
litlstrawberry said…
So, Betsy, you mean you want to get a vintage one? Renee has one from 2001 or 2002... :) I don't remember hers is Silver or gold HW...but she is lucky cause' it is only $2000 by then!!

yes, we are staying at Lake Toba for 5 days!! it is a beautiful small island in Indonesia!

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…
