Post Away!

Hi,
I just ran across your blog while I was searching for pictures of people wearing their leather jackets. After skimming some of the posts I must commend you on your personal style. While many of the outfits wouldn’t be my style, I love the way you put pieces together to make them your own. You definitely provide inspiration to develop one's own personal style and individuality instead of looking like a fashion clone. Have you ever done a post on your closet? I would love to see how you manage all of your clothing…and just be nosy as to what’s in your closet lol

P.s. Your kids are too cute!

I am so happy to receive such joyful email which also gives me motivation doing what I am doing!! ^O^

Except I don't recall I have a general clothes sorting methodology to share. Maybe in the future I will have a BEFORE and AFTER renovation pictures of my closet.  Friends know that I have a tiny walk-in closet. The size doesn't make sense in our house but enough is enough.  I often walk in my closet and go through my things and fold them, divide them, count them..... and donate them...like spring cleaning except that I do that like at least 5 times a year to avoid any overflow to my children's closets. I am not sure if that almost becomes some kind of life "meditation" to me. As you see, I am almost on top of things about all the pieces I keep.

Aww what a sweet email indeed!! And I totally knw what you mean by such emails just giving you the strength to carry one with doing what you do, I get the same feeling after receiving encouraging emails from my readers as well!

Anyways, I love the bow detailed outfit a lot, so elegant! To be honest, I ddn't quite get if that's a dress and a cardi, or a dress and a top, or if it's just ade to look like those are separate pieces? lol All confused here!

ha, Catherine:
I donate what's not suitable for my age and not body-flattering on me. You know, I am still thinking of a apparel exchange party things in bay area.... well,.... don't know if we will be able to do it.. :P

litlstrawberry said...

ha, so Mike, according to your confess.... what are the things that you hate but I bought it anyway?????!!! ^^

litlstrawberry said...

yes, Julia, sometimes we need to be reminded just to feel alive ^O^... would it be emails from the readers or words from friends or parents, they remind me to appreciate the simple existence.

Oh, it is a dress then covered by a cropped cardi. which has a bow tie. ^^

Hi R,

Lovely comment from your reader! You deserve it. Keep up the good work!

Oh, I'm going to Taipei on the 17th...hehehehe! Anywhere you recommend to shop and dine? I only have 2 days there so it's a quick trip. I will be with my mom and it's mostly shopping and dining. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. (My last trip to Taipei was 1999/2000, so it's been 10 years already...LOL!)

Thanks thanks! Have a great week ahead!

Cheers,
Mia

i am totally down for the exchange idea, maybe everyone should bring like 10-15 pieces and in good condition and within certain prices. But I bet you and your friends would have lots of better stuff than many people. let me know if you ever have one :)
