Debut of Miu Miu studded pump 2010!

Since day 1 that I bought myself a coffee machine Jura ENA 5, I am used to have a cup of coffee at home before I go out.  


I think it is a good habit that I limit myself to drink less than 2 cups of coffee a day and avoid using store cups/lids by drinking out of my portable mug. ..... Doing very little help to save the earth...I assume!!  Obviously, not today though!! ^^


Today I have to visit my friend, Renee, in SF city before she flies out to Shanghai on Sunday. But first thing first that I have to do some house chores such as putting away my Halloween decor. (see, we are even ahead of the holidays!), vacuuming the floor, washing our micro-suede sofa covers since we had guests over for Halloween parties ( I am also a semi-hygenic freak.) and my duvet cover. 


Don't you just love the clean and crisp scent of cleaning sheets/sofa!!

My normal breakfast: Coffee and English Muffin or any sweet pastry that I can get myself one.

Renee found this 97' Chanel long tuxedo style blazer at consignment store Cris in SF city the other day... it is such a fab. find. 
Photobucket
The back stitches of this Chanel blazer is superb.

The buttons has golden CC stamps which is such a classic look of Chanel that I refrain Renee from replacing them. (She thinks they are too conservative of the look.)

Hope you have a spooky Halloween trick or treat on Sunday!

Our Parents' Day Starts w/ Kid's School Halloween Party !!! (Updated)

My day didn't end at 8 PM after my Zumba dance yesterday
Photobucket
There are cheese/ham/lettus on Hawaii sweet buns, tuna melt w/ fuji apples sandwiches, (vega) Fuji apples w/ cucumber on lemon butter jelly sandwiches.

I signed up for making sandwiches for my son's class, bringing goodies for Abby's whole classmates and fresh-cut fruits w/ muffins to Ilona's class. I think I am trying to be fair to all my 3 children that once I participate ONE, i'd be involved in all 3 of their class parties!!

Our day today starts w/ Niel's first costume parade at school!!


Photobucket
Niel's costume parade at 8:15 AM...which is a big deal to me that I normally am playing my make-up and dress-up at home by myself during that time! Lol. 
Rushing to another school~ Vroom ~ Vroom~

Photobucket


Ilona's 2nd costume parade around 9:30 AM. 

Photobucket
This is the most creative (from store bought) costume ever~~ w/ that hand-made mail box!! ^^


Photobucket
Ilona's 2nd costume of the year - TInker Bell!


Photobucket


MY ODJ


Aryn K. tartan poncho ( a bargain of $63)

My day , as a parent, ends w/ Abby's last ballet/tap dance class!
Photobucket
Abby has the most distinctive costume.... (peacock main outfit from pottery barn kid's last year + Gymboree same peacock crown, wing (not show), leggings all sorts of accessories of this year)!


Photobucket
I even sew a black bow at the back onto that peacock top. 


Photobucket


Keep up, we moms!!

Miscellaneous!

I think I am famous among my friends for my prowess on taking any fashion trend and trying it on myself. 

Can't deny it. I love challenge if I had the chance. 


What NOW?


Cathy bought me and herself a turban but I have not yet had the chance to try it on (on the way shipping to us)..... but a scarf would do the same trick!! ^^

Photobucket
I tied turban w/ Hermes hot air balloon silk scarf!

Photobucket
I don't know why I'd bite Cathy's trick of wearing this turban hat to my son's school and around on the street.... 




Photobucket
Please use your imagination to put this lower puzzle w/ my upper torso!! lol.

Photobucket
I am keeping this for my mom until~~ 
Chanel red 10A Classic jumbo w/ blue/purple undertone!

Photobucket
Friend asked why I'd buy so many "square" shapes of Chanel flaps.... aren't they boring?! 
No, of course NOT, I said.
 I can carry them in many ways. Besides, they are covetable for the fact of their classic looks which also makes them perennial favorite!!


Going to 3 kid's Halloween parties!
See you later.

Take on Sheer Trend!

Girls all have a monthly thing~ lol


Today I have a big craving for sweetness and I am glad that I am not eating ALONE!


Photobucket
Today is such a beautiful day in Saratoga city!


Photobucket
I finished the whole piece of traditional bread pudding~~ it really is infused w/ strong bourbon in the sauce. 


Photobucket
Looks like I had way too much Kahlua coffee there~~ 
ps. I am not an alcoholic...doesn't even come close~~~ ^O^


Photobucket
My girl friends share another dessert - Tiramisu. 
I don't normally share dessert if I really had that kind of craving!! I like to have my WHOLE thing for myself!


Photobucket
Thanks to Cathy and Vivian that they two are being dragged walking around the town by me!


Photobucket
If I had a pair of riding shorts, I would have totally taken on that style and wear it inside my polka dot sheer dress. lol


Friends told me that they are shopping inside their wardrobe.... that's really a good thing! But you know, it also means that you should donate some old clothes while you shop at your own closet. You don't have to buy fancy stuff but trendy and a thing of good deal won't hurt either!! Nothing new on me today except that pair of cheap Kelsie lace-up brown boots. 

Remember, you also have to UPSCALE your wardrobe!! ^^
 
Photobucket


My ODJ


1. Top:
Burberry black cotton dress
off-shoulder sweatshirt w/ rhinestone (thrift store)
Lilith polka dot sheer dress
2. Accessory:
lace belt
cashmere knitting scarf
H&M black beret w/ silver beads
Chanel 08' large rodeo drive tote
3. Shoes:
Kelsie brown suede boots (bought at Loehmann's)


Where are you going for a TRICK OR TREAT!!?
xoxo Rachel 

Seductive- At Work n' on mommy/wife duty!!

Boss leopard haltered blouse, Kapital cotton blazer, HM wool pencil skirt, black sheer tights, Chanel 10A Rouge/Orange reissue, navy oxford heels. 

Photobucket
If I have to go in the office w/ DH, this is what I'd wear at work. 
Don't you think this looks conservative, professional and seductive (to my DH since I am work w/ him) all in one!!? ^^

Photobucket
I'd wear anything that delights myself, others ..... and still be appropriate even when I am only doing my grocery shopping!

Photobucket
Finally, the debut of Alaia golden lace-up heels!!


Romeo n' Julia contour pink dress, Two toned slouchy pocket cardigan, J crew studded belt, mocha knitting scarf, lilith polka dot carry-all bag, Alaia golden lace up heels.


Photobucket

Photobucket
I found this dress awful big in size M, so I pinned the bottom hem to make more "bubbly" and "asymmetrical" look!


Now let's talk about my two over the top heels!!
I found this version of Miu Miu Studded pump which only has heels paved w/ studs, spikes.... 
Photobucket
Studded-heel Platform Pump at Bergdorf Goodman $750


Then I did a height comparison between these two heels-- 
Pierre Hardy n' Miu Miu!  
Photobucket
I'd say this Miu Miu round toe, strappy look is far more interesting than the one above. I assume this pair adds more flair of toughness and edginess look on platform heels. 
 Of course, the price for this pair is a bit more for $895 in Barney's! They also have BROWN suede for the same look. 


Photobucket
The result??


They are the same height - 5 ½-inch heel. As far as the height is concerned, both 1 5/8-inch platform makes them comfy enough to walk for couple hours. 


Got your highest heels?

Miu Miu Studded Pump 2010!

Photobucket
I am out of words for this Miu Miu pair!!

Photobucket
Other than the studs, I love the rough look on this leather! 

Photobucket

Photobucket
I have not had the chance to walk around in them but I assume they are as comfortable as my Golden lace-up Alaia heels!!! 


I am so happy that I found so many gorgeous heels! I'd wish I were a spider to have 8 legs...haha... ~~ :P 


See you later. 
xoxo Rachel
