The Real Look of Michael Angel Digital Print Shirt/Dress!!

So I have piled on a lot of clothes over this Michael Angel dress shirt. Now is the time to appreciate its whole look up closer.

You know what's the problem of wearing a runway or designer clothes when there is some model or celebrity wearing it. 

Afraid of being compared......

That's right!! I hate that column in the magazine. But again, reading that provides a lot of entertainment to me, so never take it seriously. hah... 

Beauty comes differently in every eye, isn't it!!!!

Michael Angel spring 2010 collection 

Show time~~

My ODJ. 

1. Top:
  • Michael Angel shirt dress
  • Lerario Beatriz WASHED WOOL VEST
2. Bottom: BJB leather-like leggings
3. Accessory:
Designer friend, Elfi's 14K gold purple swarovski cluster necklace
HOBO International faux snake skin clutch
Erickson Beamon for Target clear cluster earrings

4. Shoes:
  • Alexander McQueen square toe satin heels

I love the peep-out look of hot pink from the bottom of A. McQueen heels.


Today, I am not in a mood of dressing "high" at all. 
I actually wear this sandal all day of doing chores!! 

I also use safety pins to secure two side of the shirt to make that curved hem.

Hope you get lots of inspiration of reading my blog everyday!!^O^

Weekend Family Fun Time n' I Rock w/ Chanel Tattoo!!

It is very unusual for all of us family wearing sneakers at the same time. Today is an coincidence. 

Daffodil is almost finishing its blossom, right now is the time for tulips...and then Roses in the summer! (I don't know what's the name of this flower I took... :P)



Top: Y-3 white shirt, Splendid quarter sleeves stripes shirt
Bottom: Mango tweed pants
Accessory: Diesel white mesh suspenser
Balenciaga violet part-time 08'
Converse black n' pink ankle sneakers

So, another wardrobe essential is a nice white shirt. Any kind, ruffle, no collar, short sleeves or long sleeves or sleeveless..... get all of them!! ^O^ I think they count into ONE category within 10 wardrobe essentials. ha~

Let's onto Chanel tattoo!!

I have to make sure the pearl bracelet goes all around my arm. So there are 6 patterns I used here. 
Now you know how strong my arm is .... :P. (A bird (w/ that CC logo), single pearl, a long pearl string, two two-pearl strings, CC logo charm. )


Those Chanel tattoo are too precious, I had compliments from men and then a girl asks me where did I purchased. It seems they sold out those tattoos!!

I think I have to give a proper thank-you lunch to Irene for sharing her tattoo w/ me ~~~

Off we went to Santana Row today!!

You know, the last minute shop in farmer's market is not too bad....except you think they don't have anything fresh left for you. However, the chance is they might want to sell you the left-over produce before the market closing and offer you a good deal. 
I bought 6 baskets of strawberry for $8. I think it is a pretty awesome deal. ^O^ 

Have a good Monday.... oh, couldn't wait for spring break comes.
We are flying to Maui, any suggestion? I know we could at least take kids to watch a whale up closer if we are lucky!!!!

Lace + Jeans = GORGEOUS...and Chanel Tattoo!!

This lace tube top certainly is a versatile piece in my wardrobe and I notice I can easily transfer my top to be a bottom or a bottom worn as a top.  

Here is the original look of this Earl Jean lace top. 

The new inspiration of today!!

I was playing w/ this HM lace jacket this morning and when I incidentally paired it w/ my lace tube top, they look like a skirt suit altogether.
Look 1. 

Look 2.


1. Top:
  • Max & Co. jeans baby-doll dress
  • H&M divided lace crop jacket
2. Bottom: 
Earl Jean lace tube top as another layer of skirt
3. Accessory:
  • Max Co. taupe floral belt
  • J Crew pale pink tights
  • Chanel 09' pink camellia earrings w/ tear pearl drop
  • Chanel 09' beige medium/large classic flap 
  • Photobucket
  • HM floral scarf
4. Shoes:

Who says you can't combine two trends together.... 
Lace + Jeans = Gorgeous!! ^O^

NEXT~ Let's move onto Furniture!!
Circa 1890 Original look Victorian arm chair

Now...w/ new upholstery


It costs me another $600 to keep its charm of those tuft buttons n' re-upholstery! 

LASTLY, Chanel tattoo. 
Right now, there is a full house in my place...Melody, Irene and Kitty's family are here since this afternoon...and a new friend from China who I haven't have time to greet him since I want to do blogging at this moment! ^O^ (kinda' of a bad manner, I admit.) 
However, blogging is my passion too.... can't wait to share it w/ you all. 
Irene gave me this Chanel tattoo and I can't wait to try it out....tomorrow. 


 Which one should I do first?? 

Have a great weekend!!

Home Furnishing - Chandelier n' Apparel cover-up in Lace!!

Cellula Chandelier


Murano Chandelier


Fruit Melody Chandelier


Modern Mesh Chandelier 
They probably serve different aesthetic pleasure in different room settings.
Little by little I am redecorating our home. Tomorrow I will receive our OLD 
Victorian style chair which I took to re-upholstery and I was eagerly anticipated to
see its new look.
Do you remember the Polka dot sheer dress I bought last week? From a 
French-Janese brand name: Lilith.
Their style is somewhat like understated COMME des Garcons but is more colorful in its rich colors and varies textile.

Picture from Lilith. Best of all, they have tutu skirt too!!! ^O^

On Tuesday, I had a special mission from my cousin, Serena, who sent me a pic.of a laced cropped biker jacket from H&M. She told me that she luuuurrrves
that jacket but couldn't locate one. There I offered to buy her one as a gift.

Of course, I am not just driving up to SF city for a jacket but also decided
taking kids to the zoo. Meanwhile, we met up w/ DH n' had dinner at 
Bloomingdales later that evening. I guess my kids' teacher must feel incredible
that I pulled off my kids from school just because I wanted to take them to the
zoo in the middle of a school day!! :P

Kids at SF zoo on Tuesday!!

This is different heels for the day.......before the zoo. 

Christian Louboutin suede violet heels.
I found this black n' pink Converse ankle sneakers at T. J. Max on Monday for $15.... so I had to wear it right next day!! :)

Cathy's Free people red striped socks is uber chic on Tuesday's outfit.


This was the cropped jacket from HM $49.95 w/ $15 off/
Their secondary line: Divided (Thanks Pei for telling me this.)

Thanks to Serena, I bought one for myself too..... What's not to love about

1. top:
  • BCBG brown polka dot spagetti straps cami w/ embroidery hem
  • HM Divided laced crop jacket
2. Bottom: Taiwan designer metallic brown full skirt
3. Accessory: Chole 08' orange sally
4. Shoes: Alexander Wang 09' suede lace up boots
Don't I really love brown now!!
Thursday again.... after tomorrow, it is weekend!!! ^O^
keep up the good spirit, everyone!

See What Got Into Me? The RED!!

Weekend is for me to relax!!

I don't have to stick w/ the time for cooking 3 meals or 2 or even 1 meal. We eat whenever we feel like it!! ^O^ I have been feeling awfully listless the past couple days but I assume wearing RED is just a coincidence for me. The good thing is doing so, it puts jocund atmosphere to people around me!! :P

Well, I think RED suits me.....and I am going to love this new color for me!!

I don't know how many of you girls bought tutu skirt or wear tutu like I do?!!!!! It must look so special and cheerful to people when seeing a grown-up wear tutu skirt. ^O^


Splendid striped shirt, terracotta coat w/ bow at back, Betsy Johnson tutu skirt, Chanel cosmetic pins a set of 3, Chanel gray mary-jean flat w/ charms, J crew rhinestone necklace, Lilith Polka dot cotton bag (free gift)

Today, I decided to layer two sheered dress ...... of course, you wouldn't see anything that's not supposed to be seen. :P

I thought the Polka dot dress is so French and classic along w/ the red dress. Now come to think about it, I do have another true red Vintage sheath from Celine!!

Just randomly found this Miss Sixty lace up sling back heels very chic~~


1. Top:
  • tube bra from URBN
  • Y-3 08' runway red sheered dress
  • Lilith polka dot dress (French brand which is my new love.......Agnes' b is still in my heart.)
2. Bottom: Agnes' b black cotton pants
3. Accessory: brown suede belt
4. Shoes: Alexander Wang suede boots 09'

I can do so much w/ the Lilith polka dot dress in the future and I am taking it w/ me to the little jaunt in Hawaii in April!!! ^O^

Have a good cup of coffee/tea to start your Monday!!

Life Before Husband!!

I don't know why Cathy look so happy there... almost silly to me!! ^O^

Ha~ Nothing serious w/ that title. It supposes to be
A day of a stay-home mom before her husband comes home! I never like routine, so if my friends ask me what I'd do tomorrow, I never really give them a plan!! Spontaneous is my thing!! ^O^

Stay-home moms' life in America is typically spending w/ friends, and kids (if not at school) during the day until husbands off from their work.

Being a Stay-home mom is not easy as we have to manage almost everything precisely.
Driving between Kids' extra-curricular activities, or classes, meeting w/ friends, staying home for kid's nap or cleaning the house (like I don't have a house cleaning lady comes by regularly), surfing the Internet or watching a movie and of course, doing grocery shopping. In the afternoon, the schedule normally is cooking, feeding, and bathing kids, then ..... if you are a lucky wife, your husband would share some house chores after he got home!!!!!

You see, if a stay-home mom can manage all these things into a morning or a day, that's pretty impressive, aren't we?!! ^O^

But you might say: That just sound "boring", right??!! Actually it is not, at least not for most mommy friends I know.

You know friends are so important, especially friends who are in a marriage and who also then has children. There is a long way to go in a marriage w/ children involved. We encourage each other, give all sorts of advice to each other (even sometimes we don't want any advice, but listening would never hurt, right?!!), share husband n' wife thing together, and gossip about Mother-in-law issue whenever we needed to vent!! Comparing is not really a good thing but certainly is not a bad thing neither!!
:P "True Friends are Forever!"


We moms went back to Filoli Garden on Thursday together and enjoyed the early summer.

I look very on Thursday!

ON me: SR pour H&M pink baby-doll dress, Agnes' b Sport green leggings, Neil Barrett black peasant top, Lanvin calf skin gemstone flat, Anthropologies bought ribbon/pearls necklace, Lilith polka dot cotton bag.

I wrapped another necklace around the roses on my dress....
Melody says that I look like I am ready for a banquet w/ the flower...and I do also look like I am THE bride!! hhaa..

I couldn't remember what Yu n' I were talking about....or quarreling about...but no matter what it is, friends are forever!!! :)

I am pretty sure Cathy had Ecstasy that morning for "that look of ecstasy on her face"!!!!! ^O^

The day w/o make-ups. (Actually, yu and I just finished two hours Yoga and Piyo Dancing in the morning.)

On Yu: Wilfred cropped top, harem pants, splash patterned leggings, Y-3 sneakers, some necklace, and j crew fringe bag.

My new baby .... Alexander Wang suede combat boots 09'


My face is very pale in those pictures, that's because I am kinda lazy doing make-ups. So Pardon me!!

A. Wang boots is only trying out for picture here... I don't like the look, they are the wrong shoes.

I had my Y-3 sneakers on the whole day.


1. Top:
Anne Fontaine white shirt w/ Panther cuff links
Michael Angel digital print tank
2. Bottom: Joseph black wool pants
3. Accessory: Diesel white mesh suspender
4. Shoes: Y-3 sneakers

Have a good weekend and let your skin rest to its real beauty!!

xoxo Rachel
