Statement Necklace!!

I found this opulent bib necklace at Anthropologie last weekend and I love it at the first sight....for both its price $69.95 and the amazing craft work in India.



My ODJ. 

1. Top: 
some purple tonic w/ asymmetrical pockets at two sides

2. Bottom:
some jean leggings
When I say "some" brand means they are bought from street vendor, or whole sale w/ dirt cheap price. 
3. Accessory:

  1. Elfi Altendorfer's designer smoke/purple Swarovski earrings
  2. Bib statement necklace
  3. Proenza Shouler yellow PS1 clutch
  4. Yellow scarf as shrug bought at Anthropologie for $19.95
  5. BCBG taupe studded belt 

4. Shoes:
Anne Valeria Hash taupe/pink brogues 

If I don't say, you probably wouldn't notice I wear necklace there. ^^

Yellow + purple = super feminine!

I adore this smoky colored Swarovski earrings very much!

I don't think you would categorize him as a minimalist just because he plays abundantly on different textile, and exhibits well-adepted cuts through his collection.

Below is a message I received this morning through FB.  I felt I am much flattered from head to toe. (Ah, I am so shallow you must think that of me. :P) Anyhow, I think once a while it would be great to listen to some GUYS opinion about fashion, or even tidiest bit of their point of view just about anything, isn't it!!!

Hi Rachel,
i read your fashion blog about cut-out leggings and thought it was great. You are an inspiration: an amazing and beautiful mom who has time for both her kids and the aesthetic side of life too! I totally adore your Chanel clutch, btw!
Anyhow, just wanted to say hi, and that you look fantastic in your home-made cut-out leggings!
ciao, Brian    

Girls, I can't stress enough that take great care of yourself in any way you can!
xoxo Rachel 


Hi R! I love your necklace! It's so gigantic! LOL! But love the dramatic look of it. Nice choice! Do they still have any left in the store?

Anyway, I also love purple and yellow combination. Or purple and lime green...:D In fact, these are my upcoming birkin color combo choice for next year.....hehehehehe! They are really lovely together. Great outfit!

BTW, I've started to update my blog...will post my new shoe loot soon! We're twins in some of them....teehee!

Have a nice week ahead!


P.S. BTW, have you ever thought of being a stylist as a profession? I mean your kids are growing up and it's nice to have a career that you love. Think about it...:D

Love this bold necklace on you and it goes well with your purple tunic. I actually saw this cute one at Anthropologie the other day and not sure how to pair it with my outfits - but you did it! Welcome back (a belated greeting)^^
Gorgeous statement necklace Rachel!

Hi, Mia:

Hope you get to enjoy your BIRKIN soon! ^^ I am sure it will look stunning..just by thinking of those colors!!!!

Oh, right, I'd love to see what shoes you bought in Pairs as Isabel bought one pair of shoes... (very cheap n' little brand there) but it seems her friend loves very much! ( i haven't seen them.)

hah..right, I should start thinking of doing something of my dream..even I don't go into fashion industry, I want to take classes about merchandising or just French class to kill time when this fall they are all gone to school during the day!! ^^

Wow, so Amelie, you were looking at that necklace? You know, just because the price is right, I couldn't resist it. I was kind afraid of asking SA to pull it out from the display box as they normally a bit more expensive.... but thank GOD, not this one!! ^^

Thanks. We all adjust back well and start my NORMAL life again...:P

Thanks, Mike. oh, right, you probably are the OTHER guys read my blog!! ^^

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…
