Upscale Your Wardrobe!!

My friend, Isabel, and I were talking about fashion the other day...... about how to upscale your wardrobe from certain designers w/o looking like you are wearing a uniform.  While she is so crazy about Marni that she'd buy couple pieces from Marni every season to mix up the look to be her own.  Brilliant ideas, isn't it!!


I am loving Missoni/or M Missoni and I start looking into more affordable pieces from their collection.  To get me start and at the same time to upscale my wardrobe w/o piling up so many fashionable pieces that I'd want to give away when they become past-season.

Cathy's little son.... so cute....and shy!! ^O^

I don't think I ever come across this fun yet elegant striped wavy design from either M Missoni or any other designer.


1. Top:
M Missoni dress 08' 
M Missoni sweater 10'F (found it at Loehmann's ^^ The sweater is a perfect match for the dress...they are even the same colored pattern. )

 2. Accessory:
DKNY knit socks
Chanel 10A orange/rouge 226 reissue

3. Shoes:
Chanel 08' camellia satin heels

The scallop waves on the sweater adds a subtle whimsical feminine look to this M Missoni.

Almost Halloween~ Let's warm up!!

Go upscale your wardrobe!!
I am going to tell you my 20 MUST-HAVE items in the wardrobe soon.

Hey, morning, girl:
I know... I was going to ask you take a look but you already did...

I am surprised when I found that sweater couple months ago. But didn't get it until we talked on the phone and realized that I should... they are meant to be each other. ^^

I was going to say that I had seen some Missoni pieces at Loehmanns recently - and you already mentioned it in your post! =) Similar minds!

Good morning, Anh:

Really? You now, you should get some (I don't think I ever saw you wear their clothes line...yet..??)

But your figure is perfect for those zig zag prints, lean, and long. ^^

I guess you saw some in Loehmann's at SF city then?? Hum.. I wonder if they carry the same styles in different locations. ^^ Try on some, I love seeing you in "pencil" skirt. :) Pretty!!

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…
