Our Parents' Day Starts w/ Kid's School Halloween Party !!! (Updated)

My day didn't end at 8 PM after my Zumba dance yesterday
There are cheese/ham/lettus on Hawaii sweet buns, tuna melt w/ fuji apples sandwiches, (vega) Fuji apples w/ cucumber on lemon butter jelly sandwiches.

I signed up for making sandwiches for my son's class, bringing goodies for Abby's whole classmates and fresh-cut fruits w/ muffins to Ilona's class. I think I am trying to be fair to all my 3 children that once I participate ONE, i'd be involved in all 3 of their class parties!!

Our day today starts w/ Niel's first costume parade at school!!

Niel's costume parade at 8:15 AM...which is a big deal to me that I normally am playing my make-up and dress-up at home by myself during that time! Lol. 
Rushing to another school~ Vroom ~ Vroom~


Ilona's 2nd costume parade around 9:30 AM. 

This is the most creative (from store bought) costume ever~~ w/ that hand-made mail box!! ^^

Ilona's 2nd costume of the year - TInker Bell!



Aryn K. tartan poncho ( a bargain of $63)
Ralph Lauren brown silk blouse
Hudson wide leg jeans
Boss platform mary-jane
 yarn covered loop earrings
Chole orange Sally (not show)



My day , as a parent, ends w/ Abby's last ballet/tap dance class!
Abby has the most distinctive costume.... (peacock main outfit from pottery barn kid's last year + Gymboree same peacock crown, wing (not show), leggings all sorts of accessories of this year)!

I even sew a black bow at the back onto that peacock top. 


Keep up, we moms!!

You are unstoppable and looking great! :) The kids' costumes are adorable!!

Love your tartan poncho and also your Kelsie booties from the previous post! Where did you get the booties, if you don't mind me asking?

Have a great weekend and Happy Halloween!

Hey, Mona:
yes, I think I am some kind of "workaholic" too!!

The Kelsie boots found at Loehmann's but I think they have those shoes sold on line... very cheap and trendy look. I thought a simple look w/ good bargain even in cheap suede lace-up won't hurt a trendy look like this one.

You have a great Halloween too!!

I love your style! Where did you find that plaid capelet? I have my eye on one just like it from Anthro, but for double the price!

Hi, Fancyface:
I found that poncho cape at a store in downtown Los Gatoes. IT probably is called "K" something... Try www. It is designed in LA made in CHina which explains why it is cheaper!! It originally sold at $88 but the store is having a promotion w/ 25%OFF IN every coat.
I DO HOPE you find this one as we all love its retro "gray + mustard" yellow tartan pattern very much!!!
Good luck.

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!!!!

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 …

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…
