Travel in Rome ~ Keep the Style, Keep the Attitude!!

Day 4 and Day 5 in Rome, we continue our Journey to walk every inch of ancient Rome. Niel, Abby and Ilona are very excited whenever there are steps/stairs and big open space for them to run around, and to chase each other. ^^ 

Kids are simple, they will have fun just like that!!! 

Day 4, we went back to Piazza Navona again to visit the shops. 

Now this Kapital blazer + shorts becomes my signature look in Rome, I love it!

This shop has pretty blown-glass accessories and Murano is the special glass only made by Venice. I wish I can carry some chandelier home.... 
We are going to visit Florence in two days and hopefully we can make a trip to Venice.

 Rome designer: Patrizia Pieroni. There are only 1 store in Rome and 1 in Paris. 
That lovely frame bag is about EURO 495. 

 Missoni green/brown collar w/ zip-pull, Isabel Marrat pull over, Joie leather high-waisted shorts, black tights, DKNY socks, Kelsie lace-up wedge, brown distressed messenger.

I tried on this Vintage dark brown back bag, do you think I look "stylish"?
... but when did I carry back bag?

Do you notice that we almost buy new shoes for kids during our trips? hha... Like Mother, like kid!! ^O^

Camper Rain coats...little souvenirs for kids. 

The rain boots to the far right has rubber, leather and inside faux fur luxury! 

The very first time that we had Chinese Food in Rome. They don't have much exotic food there.... but kids love pizza and pasta so it is not a problem when it comes to meal time!

They have their school work to do everyday (school required) which I think is wonderful. They will remember their Journey better when write it down in words!!

Did you see my new boots!!? 
From ethic(I took picture the other day in previous post). 
It has gorgeous moss green + taupe leather and suede and faux fur lining inside!!
Euro $120!! Fab. 


You can't miss Fontana di Trevi when you are in Rome. 

Last day/Day 5 in Rome
Like I said, cotton blazer + shorts become my fashion staple here in Rome. The weather is nice and even it is rainy and cool, you won't feel slightly chill and uncomfortable at all. Except rain sometimes do get you nerve when kids are getting tired!!
Everyone has their new THINGS on!! I have my new Gap hat, Abby has her new down coat, Ilona and Niel has their new Camper boots. 
Kids are happy as they run all over the place inside the Colosseo!!

DH and me.

Finally DH's most want visit 

Unexpected encounter.... black cat inside Colosseo!


Ethic boots, lovely color, warm lining makes them a perfect boots walking in cool and rainy day.

Santa Maria Maggiore at Esquiline Hill (this is almost another side of Rome that we haven't set our foot at.)

Chinese food again~~ :P 

Let's call it a day ... my feet are sore..... 
Piazza de Popolo!!

Stay tuned~

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…
