Let Nordstrom (Valley Fair) Styling Event to Refresh Your 2011 Wardrobe!

It was a lovely Sat. afternoon that Irene's family came over to my house for lunch and later on they stayed for dinner as well. In fact, we felt that it is better to let our husbands and kids all to have a play date together while we two girls go to Nordstrom at Valley Fair's Styling Event. As a result, I volunteered to cook for them in order to minimize all the hassles. Not that I am an excellent cook or anything, it is just my believe that a down-home cooking is always an economical and healthier choice. Besides, we have the best toys, Wii, Ipad games at home and even school playgrounds right next to our house. 

On the other hand, I was thinking could it be possible that we moms are imbued with the guilty of having our own fun here?  lol

Ah, I bet my and Irene's dear hubbies (DHs) would have a lot to say and to share about how to entertain 5 young children since they have done this alone when we two are gone for Vegas last year!! /^O^\ 

You know, Dads inevitably come in handy whenever we need complimentary babysitters!! Therefore, solute to all the great dads here!!!

The Woman collector department's manager, Justin (the man in the suit), is very friendly in person.  He even personally suggested couple pieces to us by Burberry Prorsum and Marni to try which he thinks they are so ME and Irene. (We will see then~~~)
Those are runway samples by Burberry Prorsum and Marni. 

(Left) Rachel: hang on~~ 

(Middle) Irene: ( not show in the picture here)"How about me?"

(Right) Rachel: There you go!! hhahaha..... (^_−)−☆

(The model wears Moschino gown gorgeously!!) 

Those are several Burberry Prorsum runway looks. (pic. source:

This is the one I tried on and felt in love w/... my curve!! :P 
Oh, no,.... I mean the stretchable linen made the body-hugging look so utterly sexy!!
I think it is a very understated piece but effortlessly stylish.

I insisted Justin on ordering me another one size down..... Very picky I am!! ^^ 
(*BTW, Nordstrom has the lowest MSRP for this particular dress even after tax when I searched it online.)


Goodies from Jo Malone and Le Mar~

Pascal (Rapunzel's pet now is mine) and the goodies~~ ^O^

On me: Thakoon fringe cross dress, Peter Som Mongolia fur, Pierre Hardy platform sandals, Proenza Shouler PS1 yellow clutch.
on Irene: Max n' Co. bow dress, Spanx dots tights,Chanel Camellia WoC.  
(Sorry Justin, I can't label your suit but I want to tell you that I adore your polka dots scarf. ^^)

Irene and I start playing dressing-up after the event. See how cool it is when I put on those adds-on shoulder feather and necklace on Irene!! (Great accessories, btw.) 

 I ended up buying that $12 teal round lens sunglasses... for fun! 

All the SA persons are very nice and helpful when we were there trying out pieces at Nordstrom.  And big thanks to them who took pictures for us that I'd be able to look saucy and blog about it here!!

We two had a great time at Nordstrom styling event and We definitely are going back next week to try our new pieces and to see Justin again. ^O^

Have you tried new 2011 clothes just for fun yet?
xoxo Rachel

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!!!!

I want to share a store coupon w/ you girls. This deal is better than its offered 15% off for joining in their email list. 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…
