Mosaic widow paved w/ stories about Catholic.


kids love climbing stairs since they are very young.... since they are only 8 months old for my 3 children. This is our last stop in Milan and in Italy that by no means, all of us climb to the top of the roof. Considering the Duomo we climbed in Firenze, this is easy cheesy, a piece of cake! ^^

If you are wondering how crazy that people love "GAP" or "Valentino For GAP" in Milan, here is the proof... lol. 
I find it is amused to see that the guard has to regulate people to wait in line and go shopping in GAP store. 
I wonder do we Americans ever so crazy about GAP? 


Photobucket
One of my favorite brands "Sonia Rykiel"!


Photobucket
Sonia Rykiel: Pony, shearling, suede clog boots.

Are you looking for perfect Taupe bag? Here, Sonia Rykiel!


This is the ONE...a huge doctor framed bag in Taupe/Dark brown. (Euro 1800) There are tiny Swarovski crystal and embossed Sonia Rykiel!


The same size in cameral brown in the back ground is Euro 790. Both can be carried across the body!

The back view!

Oh I just saw this Chanel brooch and it's is the exact one I've been eyeing from the "Boho Glam" collection. I want the pewter/silver too! Am I too late to ask you buy? LOL! Please help me grab one silver color if you happen to pass by Chanel again in town or at the airport. No worries about the Valentino for Gap. I have similar so it's ok. :D

Thanks again in advance!

Have a safe trip back to US. Bon voyage.

Cheers,
Mia

I am finally back and can post :)

Great pictures from your trip, thanks for sharing your adventures with all of us!

Valentino for Gap jacket looks wonderful on you, ruffles+military look=great combo.

Love how you incorporate your new Chanel brooch in your outfits, especially when it is attached to the hat.

Have a safe trip back! You must be exhausted and jetlagged once you get back, so be sure to get plenty of rest!

Looking forward to your nex post :)

Thanks, girls.

We are back and the jet lag is not a problem...we left Milan at 10 AM and transit in London for 2 hrs. and back here in SF for another 10 hrs. We arrived SF at 6 PM and after I did the laundry..... sorting things and gave one Chanel bag to my friend since they picked us up from the airport, we went to bed after a light super!!

Kids all gone for school and hopefully they are feeling fine as we all woke up around 6:30 AM...

The flying time is perfect for us to get back on track here...and hopefully I can meet up w/ my gals soon and post more!!

Have a fun day and happy shopping for Christmas... PS> I think I am done shopping for Christmas, I can only spend a little for friends now. :P
Welcome home R!! You must be busy and tired now! Glad you don't have much jet lag..:D

Anyway, no worries about the Chanel brooch. I got it already here in HK coz they just arrived here. :D

Also, guess what!! I got all the 3 jackets from Valentino x Gap (your version, the cropped version w/ hood and also the long parka)!!! :D Another angel who happens to be in Europe helped me ...hehehehehe! We are gonna be twins soon! Yay!

Do get some rest and looking forward to your upcoming posts!

Cheers,

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…
