Gift Giver!!

I certainly can't slow down myself and mind the house especially during this holiday season. I am out and about shopping for ornaments, birthday gifts, Christmas gifts.....and simply get inspired by everything on the street!

I also certainly am inspired by Londoners and Italians' style while traveling. "Fun" is the element in their most ensemble and I notice almost everyone, man or woman, wears scarf. In my opinion, the right scarf is an instant STYLE-UP-DO!! 


For me, it is easier to spot a real Londoner.  While in Italy, it is hard. I do have the chance to snap photos when I saw a good ensemble worn by pretty woman or man, but .... you know...... &^%$##@**..... it would take me a lot of time just to ASK then explain WHY!
*sigh*...maybe I should learn "May I take a photo of you and your pretty outfit for my blog?" in Italy before our next Europe trip!! lol.

I was on London tour bus and snap this photo. I found this cute pompom scarf very fun and look all so match with this woman's contrast stitching trench coat and her gray cap!!


I promised one of my fellow blogger/reader, Erica, that I'd give her my special gift from my trip. Then, there are also so many other gifts to prepare, matters of style, taste, budget, ... all have to take into account. I think I still have time~~~~

Then here is me dressing all up while doing my gift shopping. People asked me "What's the occasion?" "Are you attending a party?"


Why? This is just my look for today!!...I answered.

I found this golden wide leg, kind like scallop shape 70' pants in a vintage shop in Rome. The owner liked this pants very much and he asked me to send him a photo if I had an outfit for the pants. I am glad that I dug out something in my closet to match up w. this pants for a start. I think I am going to do couple looks w/ this pants and send photos to him once I gathered them all. So maybe you will see my photos in Rome while you traveled there in the future. ^O^

Boho style, Victorian or my style!

You can tell that I love this Zara top for its versatility that I couldn't think of a reason to give it away.

Zara top, vintage Escada knitting cardigan, 70' Golden wide leg pants w/ scallop trim, vintage 05' Gap big brim hat, Max Co. black leather belt w/ flower applique, Louis Vuitton 06' runway clutch, Chanel 11' Cruise pearl brooch, Alaia golden lace up sandals.

The pants looks like a skirt from afar.

I switched light gold brooch w/ my friend as she wants this 11' cruise pewter/dark silver brooch.  
Now I found out everything is so coordinated ....gold brooch, gold pants, and gold sandals. ^O^

Cathy and I are all so hungry after shopping around..... we decided to dig in a nasty hot dog~ ha~


What's in your wishlist?

ha, thanks Susan. That look actually is applied two shades on my nails...dark green as the base and sparkles at top. You can pretty much pick any brand of dark green and add whatever big or small sparkles at top to create that look!!

Have fun!!!

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!!!!

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…
