End of Summer Sandals.

I hope you all prepared for new school year.... moms for kids and students for themselves. Others for their annual bonus!! ^O^   I guess we won't have a small vacation before our Italy trip in October then.

I feel that I have to plan kids' schedule smartly so I will have time left for myself, for them and still get to have a restful weekend!! However, I am hardly punctilious about their school work but more of my childrens' manners. I think that's my #1 rule of cultivating my children growing up.  Agree?

Last weekend, I put away couple summer tops that I think I won't be wearing them anymore. And soon I'll have to store away temporarily this Chole sandals until next year.... unless I can incorporate socks w/ this sandals to make it works for fall.  We'll see then. 

My birthday is around the corner and I can't believe that I can't find a decent Chanel bag for $3000 anymore. ~~ *sigh*  

Any suggestion, girls? What would you be willing to spend on for $3000? 


See how much I like this orange tee.

Humanoid orange 3/4 tee

i always tell my husband investing in chanel purses is better than investing in stocks, they are guaranteed to go up in price, 5% a year! i would save up and buy another birkin :)

Might you buy a robot for $3000? It might be able to make clothes, so saving money in the long term?
litlstrawberry said…
hha, Catherine: you don't just tell him.... you BUY and show him. hahah....

Oh, yeah, we both should save UP for another birkin. ^^
litlstrawberry said…
haha, Kay, if you do find that kind of ROBOT, please do let me know. I will give you big commission too. ^^

I don't think our artificial intelligent techonology in current situation is that splendid YET. But do keep me posted. haha..
ceci said… that the $3k you've spent I saw the other day? Is that your upcoming b-day gift? =D Oh...Happy early birthday to you! It's a very beautiful piece! I did went back & pick up a simple black/gold belt at the end too! But nothing from Chanel - I guess I still enjoy wearing the Dynasty knot brooch at the moment. The SA, L.Ho, helped & she's very nice & mentioned even the price for croc belts have been up so much the past 3 years! Crazy! Better to buy now then later I guess....
litlstrawberry said…
haa, Ceci, black and gold hermes, you mean the black belt w/ gold buckle? Does the buckle has texture on it.. like my w/ vertical stripes texture. Anyway, I am sure you will show us somewhere (on PF?) w/ your Chanel. OH, yeah, your knot, it is gorgeous..but since you pin on your stripes blazer I can't see it clear know, there is a moment i want to ask you pin on your sequins top.... :P haha... Anyway, you really can jazz up your clothes w/ that pretty Chanel knot!

haha.. yeah, I should do a proper reveal of that expensive beauty... I hate to say it is expensive..but it is ...for just that! :P
ceci said…
haha...I know I know...but the brooch is quite heavy for the soft Coco loves to pull the brooch too =p

DH loves the Gold hammered buckle & I picked the black box/gold (togo?) Anyway, I was looking for bright color like red, but SA said that's all for F/W collection. But this color combo is easy to match everything. I'm not sure if I would post a reveal, but I'll send you an action photo later maybe =)

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!!!!

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…
