A Big DO!!

A gift-giver on Holidays! --- A BIG DO!
Finally I had almost all the gifts prepared to be wrapped. Say "almost" is because there is always someone that you "kind of" forgot and then you realized soon enough to have an extra gift to give! I even thought of giving my Yoga/TRX teacher a set of holiday Deborah Lippmann nail polish.


Because she has the most delicate hands and feet I've ever seen (on an adult)... :P sounds like I am a stalker

I bought lots of jewelries from J CREW today to give them to my kids' school teachers. I bet they will be so happy once they open the gifts..... I know I would! ^O^ Other than GC, what elses you guys would give to the teachers for Christmas? I am curious!!!!

I was browsing through Glamour mag. in the evening and see they had several pages talking about the trends for 2011 including Do and Don't! I don't care much about Do and Don't because my wardrobe is based on grace, elegance and decency. But there are couple trends I find interesting and start wondering whether or not such trends will even press all the fashionista's button and become a real life hit!!!

Anyway, those are my personal style DO these two days! ^^


All Saints leather smoke brocade jacket w/ tail, gray scarf, wheat knitting hat, Max Co. nude shirt, vintage leather high waist mini skirt (bought in Rome), GAP socks (bought in Rome), Ethic tan/taupe/olive boots w/ shearling trim boots.

1st DO: Match the color of your hat w/ your shoes!^^
2nd DO: Reveal some flesh other than hands, and faces or neck in demonstrate that you are healthy and strong!!! ...... hahah...... (I made up this one!!! :P) 

We all went to Ilona's school winter program yesterday ~~~ Kids are so cute in PJs singing and dancing along w/ Christmas songs!!

3rd DO: Wear white jeans in the winter, I mean, why not?!!
4th DO: Wear trinkets/accessories to show that you have taste. ^O^ (Did I just make up this one as well??)



1. Top:
Isabel Marant pull over sweater
White loop sleeves cardigan

2. Bottom:
RUGBY white skinny jeans

3. Accessory:

All right, all right, I think I made up all those DOs....:P  have some laughs, did you!!?

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!!!

Aren't those 3 capes classic n' gorgeous!!!!

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…
