Post Away!

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 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.

The dress and the cardigan looks like a cut-out piece in ONE top.


Dress: Linda Loudermilk organic bamboo dress w/ organza back
Cardigan: Jamei Chen (陳季. 敏) Taiwanese designer cropped cardigan w/ satin bow tie
Hermes white CDC w/ gold HW
Jil Sander cutout platform heels

Karen walker Dandy sunglass

haha.... funny look!
KOI jasper cape
Minnetona fringe boots
cashmere blend knitting scarf


Karen walker orange tee
Ports 1961 sequins cardigan (second hand find)
Diesel low waist white flare jean
Converse sneakers

You look gorgeous as always! Love love your Jil Sander heels and Ports 1961 cardi!

Have a fantastic day!
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. ^^

Thanks, Mona. ^^

You have a great evening.

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!

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 :)

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. …

Kate Spade Store Coupon 20% OFF, DIY of Marni Runway Look!!

I really need to organize my blogs into tags/categories so it will be easier for you girls to navigate on. But right now, thanks to Google for its incredible searching mechanism that I hope you still can find something useful here other than seeing me fancy and vain in the pic. haha....!!!! lol.

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…
