Runway to Real-Way-- From Reed Krakoff Look to my Vintage Remix!!

Yesterday when I waited my kids' piano lessons at Los Gatoes, I dropped by Benefit beauty stores to check out this Magic Ink Jet Black Liquid Eyeliner!! 

I read Anh's blog about how amazingly easy when applying this liquid eyeliner. I am like her-- While she loves her MAC eyeliner for years, I used to be happy w/ Chanel's automatic liquid eyeliner in black as well.  The applicator on Chanel won't clog and you just have to twist the tube to let more black ink flowing out more if you needed. However, I found that sometimes there is almost a drop-full of black liquid coming out from the TIP when I twisted it too many times??? (or should I be more patient and twist it ONCE instead.....I don't know). But hey, who has the whole morning to do make-ups right?!! 
couple days ago w/o eyeliner

w/ Chanel's automatic eyeliner.....flaky after a day

Today w/ Benefit eyeliner......let's see this evening ^^

You know, I have to take my words back saying that Ilona is doing great at school ...but the truth is that she cried pretty hard and loud these past couple days, except the first day!! Well, I guess she suddenly realized that the school is for REAL and she needs to be apart from ME!! :( So today I stayed in the classroom w/ her for 10 mins even though she is still crying for the fear of me leaving next moment which I did, but at least I want her know that I am a very determined mom so she can learn quickly adept herself in every situation when she grows up. 


I am totally in love w/ this fall look!!

I had this faux leather wrap skirt for thousand years (again, it seems I can open a vintage shop. :P) which I bought at Italy. 
I use a safety pin to secure that orange wrap skirt and make a peek-a-poo layer there!

I had two skirts on today. You know, I have done two pants so why not two skirts, right?!! lol Besides, I always want to try something fun and challenge.

Liquid eyeliners look so good, but somehow I've never mastered the art of applying it myself... But oh well, I don't use eyeliner often so I guess I'm okay with my Dior eye pencil for now.

And I love this wrap skirt on you! Interestign idea wearign two wrap skirts at the same time too, not everyone can pull the look off, but it looks good on you! Well done :)

So is the new liner better than Chanel? Very cool how you have such a similar skirt in your closet that looks right off the runway. That makes it harder to part with things right? You never know when it will come back in style ;)
Hi R, love your layered long skirt with an orange peek-a-boo layer inside. I think only very slim people like you can pull off such a look...:D

Anyway, it's such a cooincidence that you talk about Reed Krakoff here. Coz when I was having my hair permed last Thursday, I read about Reed Krakoff and I was really drawn to his collection. I esp. love the leather long fact most of the coats are unbelievably beautiful! :P I like how he uses the neutral colors such as brown, black, gray, olive/green, and blue together with so much ease. He's going to have an online store next week...yay! :P

Enjoy your weekend!


P.S. My taipei trip is this coming Friday. Hope my flu will go away or else I can't eat anything in Taipei! Grrrr! Miss the street food there! LOL!

Thanks for the mention!! So sweet! How did the liner work for you? Hope you like it as much as I do!
litlstrawberry said…
Thanks, Anh, I love it for its rich and consistent black liquid look. I think I might just toss away my Chanel ones. :P But once a while I'd like to use pencil eyeliner for a softer look.... those eyeliner makes the whole looks so "precise" and pencil eyeliner soften the look a bit for a casual look!!

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. …

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…
