No, not me!!!!
I do love jeans, but absolutely not to the point of wearing them as daily basis. However, I do appreciate fine hand-dyed and hand-stitched craftsmanship on denim and on other garment.

I discovered a Japanese brand- Kapital yesterday while we were at SF city. The owner of the store Cotton Sheep told me that Japanese people are so crazy about hand-dyed indigo and if they are true artisanal jeans lovers, they'd look for denim made by Okayama prefecture. Okayama is long known for its dye and indigo industry and the methods they used for dying by hand nowadays can be traced back centuries. Kapital started out their business in 1995.  Now even w/ their understated designs, their fine craftsmanship, truest, deepest shade of blue and functionality have earned so much respect from fashion critics. 

Here are some of the looks from their online catalog. 


This looks like a Parka..... but a lighter version.

Very whimsical full denim skirt w/ suspender which my mom would LOVE!

I am so amazed that their denim is so desirable!

I can see myself in this look~~ ^^

Tribe print? African print? A pattern that will last forever!!

I love the print and softness and tailored look of those cotton blazers.

Harry potter!!???? lol

I laid my fingers on Kapital's blazer right away..... and THIS one is w/ me to England and Italy.^O^

The leather patch at elbow makes me want to hold a rifle and shoot some ducks... :P 
.....which I don't know why!!  
But I do know one rule that you shouldn't shoot ducks (while they are resting) on the is not fair to them. lol.


This will be the softest jacket I ever had.

Let's try a soft blazer look, shall we!!?

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…
