Winter, Ski, Christmas, How Fun!!



This year, my winter white is not so WHITE anymore. And interesting thing is that I always wear my winter white w/ reference from Chanel or like this year, another winter white look w/ this HUGE statement piece: Chanel tweed and rabbit fur boots!!


Cable knit w/ whimsical romantic lace skirt!



F/W 2010 

All the stores are bypassing Thanksgiving and ostentatiously displaying all sorts of Christmas ornaments. Cathy and I already went out for Christmas shopping at Campbell downtown and she got all of us girls very cute ones.....Since I am w/ her so I get to take IT home EARLIER!!! ~~ ^O^

Campbell downtown: Vintage & Vogue

Cathy, you know I wouldn't be satisfied just w/ those two CC ornaments!

When what to my wondering eye should appear?
Snow come and Chanel ornaments hang all over the tree!~ lol.

Love this rusty look sofa and all the pillow throw!

Golden yellow is my Christmas tree's main color!

Those motif gives a symbolic ambiance of FRANCE!

The little Christmas tree inside the bell glass is gifted from Cathy... see that empty photo frame??..... That's reserved for our Italy trip picture after we are back!! 

The Tiffany blue birds side table lamp is gifted by Judy for Ilona!

Ilona: a look w/ mouth full!! ^^

Renee gifted me "02C" Chanel black short sleeves pull-over. (I'd assume it is her treasure hunt way back then~~ ^^)
I have another treasure hunt myself at thrift store couple months ago: 02P camellia vest. I think they are a perfect pair and additionally paired w/ a black pleated skirt.... Voila~ 

Why everyone gifted so early? We are only a vacation AWAY... and we will be back way before Christmas! ^^



I had fun playing w/ my outfit and done some home-decor improvising, now it is time for me to PACK and get ready for Christmas!!

Have you had a Christmas tree yet?
Have a theme for your Christmas tree and have fun w/ it!

The year went by so fast. That means I'm almost over with my semester, a lot study ahead of me for my finals though. i love this time of the year. The CC christmas tree is insane. Ilone is so cute! Loving your outfits here, particularly the first one.

Love this post, makes me think of Christmas and New Year, which are right around the corner! The decorations are just adorable, especially the little Christmas tree in a glass bubble.

The Chanel boots are gorgeous on you! I don't think a lot of people can pull this look, but you do it so well!

Can't wait to see the modeling pictures of your 2 other Chanel tops that you mention in this post.

When are you leaving for your trip?

Have a fantastic time there!

Hi, Claud:
Hope you do all your finals well. ^^ i have couple friends go for their Master/self-advancement study... and they are all busy studying too.

Kids grow so fast and I can't believe all my kids go to school and now Ilona loved her school too!!

What a year that hope everyone has a fruitful year already!
litlstrawberry said…
Thanks, Meipinggg!!
We don't have snow here neither... only in the mountains!

What's your Christmas plan, dear?
litlstrawberry said…
I know, Julia. Suddenly everywhere you see is Christmas tree..... that I almost we are just stepping in Nov. and Thanksgiving is not yet coming.

Ah, I have to say Happy Birthday TO you in advance and may you have a fun birthday too.

I know you probably like that Gray outfit the most. For me, it is hard to believe gray has so many shades and for me to like it so much now. ^^

Hi, Mona:

We are leaving this weekend. I know london is so COLD but not sure about the weather in Rome, Milan... I couldn't tell from Satoralist blog since he is in SPAIN right now? haha.... I have to search a bit what people wear in Italy NOW!! ^^

YOu know, Chanel is really a style icon that I'd always refer back no matter how other trendy style comes and goes every year!! Don't you think so?

I love your shorts!! Perfect winter shorts!
Btw, those boots from the D&G show are to-die-for.
So excited for Christmas!!

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…
