Rachel Hears the NEWEST!

PhotobucketI don't like carrying an umbrella nor wearing a hat which does serve the purpose of blocking the UVA, and UVB in Taipei, instead, I wear long-sleeve shirt or light jackets. Of course, I sometimes felt like walking in a steaming room while wiping off the sweats around my forehead and nose but at least I kept the confluence of remixed fashion: Asia style and my personal interpreted street style! ^^

You know, just when I think I finally adjusted myself better w/ Taipei's weather, fed myself to the mosquitoes (so they give my kids a break. :P)  and got used to a running nose accompanying w/ at least 7 or 8 times of sneezes every morning, we are about to leave Taiwan.

However, DH didn't visit Bellavita shopping mall once so we decided to walk around Sing-Yi district the last time before we leave.


My ODJ. 

1. Top:
  • Rubbish pink tank
  • translucent pink floral tank
  • baby blue asymmetrical collar blazer (A. Fad in Taipei)

2. Bottom: 
teal blue draped skirt (A. Fad in Taipei)
3. Shoes: grayish taupe w/ brown gladiator heels (A. Fad in Taipei)
4. Accessory:
Proenza Shouler PS1 yellow clutch
Laser-cut floral earrings bought at Indonesia 

Then we walk back to Eslite book store where I bought some snacks and condiments home w/ me.  Most of brand name clothes sold in Eslite is having 30% off sale.  But I bought a pair of black cotton casual trousers by Ann Demeulemeester which is not on sale. 


Those are my fave. snacks: spicy bean curd and non spicy ones in vacuumed wraps. 

Anatomy of fashion in clothes!! ^^

Ah, I love prints!!!

Just when I started filling w/ a buyer's remorse, I bought another pair of sunglasses which being offered to me w/ a equally sale price. ^O^  

What's the brand name???

You guess!!


OK, ok, here it is. 
I walked into Karen Walker's boutique and saw this beautiful GEE GEE sunglasses in pink and in love w. it at the first sight!!! I then was being told by Jerry (the manager) that this is the newest fall color. Ah, again, did I hear the magic words: "The newest collection?!!"

Wouldn't you know it... I conferred w/ DH that if I could buy another pair of sunglasses since I just bought ONE .... w/o his consent. :P.......Long story short, anyhow, Jerry offers me a great price that I can never find it that cheap anywhere else when it says "NEW ARRIVAL"!!!

Karen walker gee gee sunglasses in PINK 10' A/W. 
Aren't those pink, teal, baby blue a perfect color combination!

I am, we are, all back in SF now and surely I want to meet up w/ my gals and hear they say "WELCOME back HOME" to me.  ^^ 

Have a good morning.... (gotta go to bed and adjust the jet lag again....)
xoxo Rachel

hey, Janet: Thanks.
I love it here as the weather allows me to do layering and not looking like a crazy woman. :P

In Asia, only night time or party that people would dress up , otherwise, most of the time, they dress up when they can be in the air-conditioned indoor not when they have to walk a lot on the street.

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 …

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…
