Vintage Beads Necklace by Elfi Altendor!

I could never get enough of this green/jade color. 

"Paris" Vintage Acrylic beads, Lucite and Italian glass beads, Sterling silver cable chain and ball magnet clasp!

The exquisite necklace and earrings are handcrafted by my beloved costume jewelry designer: Elfi Altendorfer.  Soon she will travel back to her hometown: Austria and couple other Europe countries for her jewelry show.  Therefore, I had to visit her and her "gorgeous pieces" before she is gone for a while. 

No, I can't wait for her coming-back and I am glad I didn't!!


Ah~ the backdrop painting is at some marketplace in Venice~~ Soon I will be there!!^O^

Where would be your next vacation destination?
xoxo Rachel

Hi, there,

I was just in San Francisco this past weekend with my family. We went sightseeing and managed to fit in a visit to San Francisco Zoo. My daughter loved it there!

We did so much walking that my feet are still killing me. It was exhausting, but definitely a worthwhile and fun trip!

Congrats on your necklace, the colors are lovely!

When are you leaving for your trip? I'll send you e-mail with travel tips about London this weekend.

hey, dear Mona: Please do send me some "must-go" places since we will only be there for 2 days. Mainly the trip is dedicated to Italy and we'd stay there for 13 days. ^^

Ah, you know, you should have called me or at least email so I probably can have a family lunch/ or just me w/ kids.. ^^ But I am glad that you enjoyed the trip and kids too AND that's the most important thing when traveling w/ WHOLE family!!

Out trip is 11/13... London we come. ^O^

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…
