Fashion = Dessert !?

Those yummy macaroons are made by mixing up different kinds of tea w/ other flavors. 

Pink, purple, black and brown (caramel) macaroons. 

Yellow, red and light brown macaroons.

White macaroons are made of Morocco mint + green tea flavor!

Aren't those colorful macaroon looking adorable n' delicious lining up here!! ^^

Thanks to the FOOD industry, I'd pick up whatever delights me at the first sight w/o worrying much of going wrong w/ the choices. 

However, the vagaries of fashion industry would confuse people so much that I sometimes have a hard time understanding the aesthetic underpinning for such a so-called fashionable statement/looks. Ah, perhaps I would categorize those as the eerily work of art to me!:P

Today is the second day as we family are back in USA.  I am trying my best to help my kids cope w/ the jet lag. There are a lot of summer activities awaits for my kids starting next week so I have to make sure they are ready by then!

What's the plan to keep them awake during the day?

Sunshine!!! ^^

A lot of sunshine will keep them awake so we went up to SF city this morning. 


My ODJ. 

1. Top: 

2. Bottom:
J Brand skinny cropped jeans in Khaki 

3. Accessory:

  • Sonia Rykiel Swarovski crystal owl brooch as necklace
  • BR gold studs belt
  • Lilith brown stripes scarf
  • San Diego Hat co. tan knitting cap (bought at Wholefoods Market)
  • G-shock (orange face) watch (bought when I was in college..... :)) 
  • Chanel matte black reissue in 226 

4. Shoes: 
Chole tan/nude ankle wrap flat

w/ Tom Ford Jacqueline style sunglasses

w/ Karen walker Gee Gee in Milky Pink

And I like the unexpected KW pink sunglasses better. 

The shade is actually very dark and you almost can see that brown hue in this wine Christian Louboutin Bianca 140 mm heels. 

This CL Bianca I picked up this morning will never be my first choice if I ever saw her on the shelf. But w/ the sale price and surprisingly elegant and cheerful look than black ones, I'd go for this pair as my wardrobe staple. 

This pair has similar color as YSL's new fall patent wine/purple pumps. 

W/ my ODJ, nice looking. I think!


Ilona is very hyper when we were in SF city.  
She started dancing on the sidewalk when she heart drum/music people played by the street. 

Now, would you please excuse moi!!

xoxo Rachel

Welcome back Rachel!!!! I saw all of your pictures of this trip and you family seemed to have a blast!!!

And look at you! I can't even find a trace of tiredness on your face; you look so refreshing as always!

Your cutest Ilona has grown up too. Hope you're having some good rest to ease the jet lag!!

oh i really like your necklace is so cute :) I like your outfit very mcuh it looks so fresh. You didn't seem to have gained any weight at all from your trip! I hope that will be my case too hahahaa. There's just too much good food here in TPE. Your new CL's are so pretty. I envy how you can walk in super high heels!
my mouth just watered from seeing those macaroons...I better go pick some up. Oh which red chanel will you get? I wanted the red lamb so bad a while back, the 10c but i missed it :( boo
I saw the red patent reissue and looks very pretty too. Can't wait to see what you get. And i'm sure you can get good use out of it before you give it to your mom ;) hehehe.

Hi, Michele:
Thank you. Yes, we enjoyed very much the time w/ our families in this trip.

Oh, by the way, I like the red birkin on the signature picture a lot..what's that color? If I can find similar red of Chanel classic, that'd be perfect!!

We still wake up around 6 Am and then I starting doing some house chores before heading out.

You have a great weekend!!

Hi, Susan:

you know, I think for MY age, it is hard to lose weight AND gain weight as I am a very active in work-out routine and then I ate a lot afterwards. :P But again, even I try to lose weight, the fat is not going to be trim off much from my butt nor tights but upper body such as face, chest and breasts....*sigh* ahha....

Oh, so when are you coming back to USA then? IT is getting too HOT in Taipei and I am glad to be back. I am going pay a visit on Chanel, NM in the near future to see my perfect RED. ^^ AND give it to my mom...I think i have like almost half year of the right of possession. hahah..

You have a great time in Taipei!

Hi Rachel! The color is Rouge Garance!

You're such a good daughter in thinking of getting the red Chanel for mommy! But why not keep to yourself?

Betsy C. said…
Welcome back, Rachel! That tweed short jacket is super cute, though it seems bigger than I had remembered from your original trip. Sounds like you guys are keeping busy to adjust back to the CA time pretty quickly. That's the way to do it instead of dragging it out for an entire week.

The new wine colored CLs are gorgy! Was Barneys having a pretty good sale? Too bad I haven't had a chance to check out anything in the city lately. To be honest though, I haven't had much desire for any of the sale items right now though.

Anyway, happy 4th of July!
litlstrawberry said…
THanks, Michele. I will check out the color again and see what color Chanel come up this fall!!

Hi, Betsy: I know, I didn't get anything on sale on Friday neither. I only went to pick up that CL shoe which I had it ordered way before we went back to Taiwan. Good for you that temptation didn't come to get you. hahahah...

OH, the tweed, .. I think it does look too slouchy on my but that's the look of it as it is not supposed to be fitted... it is so soft and comfortable when I wore to the city the other day. A perfect jacket here....I dont think I'd be able to wear that during summer time in Taipei though.

Hopefully we will be back on track by tomorrow.... w/ the time here!!!

have a good Sunday!!

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…
