The Transformation and the Givenchy!!

Ok, first of all, I don't know if this Givenchy New Deep V tote is actually being shipped to me or not!!!




WHY not?


The sales on shopzoeonline.com is going crazy. They have entire handbags 25% off sale today and they can't speed up the process to update their stockist!!! So let's just keep my finger crossed!


I posted a petroleum (gray, green, slate) colored version way back in Feb. The pic. was taken from Barney's store but I can't beat this deal and the studs!! After Alexander W. Rocco studs bag, I seem love a gladiator style a whole new another way.....the studs!! ha~


Do you guys remember this ZARA striped blazer from last year? I love the blazer but I gave it a new look now!!


The old look #1 styled w/ Elisabeth and James tuxedo vest!

My Gals' Style, layered, striped,....... all trec chic!!

Today, we all gathered at Cathy's place to cook my signature dish... Beef Noodle Soup. After done cooking, we waited at least 4 hours for the beef to be tendered enough to melt in our mouth......... WHY does it take so long????


Normally, it takes only 1 1/2 hour to 2 hr. but since the pot we used in Cathy's place is not a very good one, we snacked our way to be full during the whole lunch time!!! haha........ So, if you ask me about is it worth to invest a good cooking POT, I'd say, SURE!!! It saves your time and money....the GAS!! :)


Anyway, I am still trying to upload the video to FB but it seems taking forever!! If you want to know my recipe for beef noodle soup, you probably have to go to FB then.


However, nothing is more fun than seeing my gals' creative outfits, right!!! Here we go!


ME, arrival style!!!!

I am pretty good at wearing heels and standing w/ one foot. hah~

1. Top:
some crochet tank dress w/ trim
Rubbish taupe cardigan
some wool taupe vest
2. Bottom: 
PH8 pink draped skirt
4. Accessory:
Cashmere blend knitting scarf
mustard beret
Chanel 08' Rodeo Drive large tote
5. Shoes:
YSL taupe iridescent tribute platform heels
Uni-Color from head to toe!!!


It has been about 2 weeks...the Chanel tattoo is fading away slowly!

Grr...I wish there is no plug blocking my pretty legs.... :P 

This is Yu. 
Whenever she is in a hurry and had not enough time to think what to pair w/ the SHOES, she wears her Camper sneakers! ^O^
On her: TSE pink ruffle sweater, SR pour HM wool jumpsuit, SR pour HM stripes socks, Camper sneakers, Chanel pink tote.

Styled w/ Sam Edelman peep toe lace-up boots later on!!


Yet another fun way....we all love the extra fun bright neon yellow on this one!! (Pour La Victoire patent peeptoe w/ tassel platform)

Then Cathy!!
If you are looking for a head to toe (almost) striped outfit, she found them for you!! ^O^

on her: Aqau striped mini skirt dress, Aqau striped drape cardi., Marc Jacob belt, some black cardi, Stuart Weitzman black platform heels.

The striped mini dress also comes w/ a mini skirt too!! They make you looking slender...oh, ...maybe skinny!! :) 


Hope you had lots of fun here!!
Have a good day!

Sheer and Crab!!

No, they are not related to each other at all!


Aren't these Ted Baker little coin purse w/ snap-closure cute or what!!
Photobucket

Photobucket
This is the little CRAB I was talking about! A cooked one! ^O^


I never thought a sheered dress/cover-up could make this military look so macho yet fun at the same time.  Those sheered dresses/cover-ups are so versatile.  I had a red sheered dress from Y-3 runway, but I always wanted one w/ buttons all the way down like this. :)............... I am blathering here..... hah.........

Photobucket
I personally think a sheered something or even a veil kind accessory can be a wardrobe essential if you know how to style them!!

I deliberately mis-placed the buttons on the dress to create drapes.

Photobucket
Now, are you convinced to get yourself a sheered dress!? ^O^

Tomorrow we are cooking beef noodle soup... Stay tuned!!
Please don't forget the GIVEAWAY..........

Bunch of Stuff~~ LBD, and a CopyCat!!


Last Friday, I was going through my daughters' picture and amazed how resemble two sisters can be at certain age.  In retrospect, I forgot how does Abby look when she is at 2-year-old and those family pictures always reminds me to revel in the luxury of being w/ them as long as I can. :)

Gingham + Lace, PLUS, FUN Make-up!

PS. I'd love to share my beef noodle soup recipe to you all but I have to warn you .... I eyeball the measurement of every condiment and adjust them to the perfect taste according to my tongue. ^O^ Maybe I should ask Betsy (our fellow reader/friend here)to come over someday and hold the iphone to shot me in the air. haha... 


Today, I did a make-up... I apply eyeshadow underneath the starting point of eyebrow and around the corner of nose too.


Photobucket
Left to right: Giorgio Armani pale blush, Bobbi brown taupe eyeshadow, Make up for ever purple.


My inspiration look comes from Barney's catalog.
