We had a small Luna Year Party at home on Sat. evening and we gave out red envelops to the kids just to remind them this tradition.

During the day outfit when doing grocery shopping..... 


1. Top:
 Taiwanese designer 胡雅娟 one shouldered silk top

2. Bottom:
Mandarin and General washed silk elastic pants

3. Accessory:
J crew green glass brass cuff
BR brass studs skinny belt
Hobo International Faux python clutch 

4. Shoes:

That's how much onion I cut....15 at least....crying and tearing... it is no use even I soak the onions in advance!!  
(How come I forgot to use my Food processor???!! duh~~~)

Sweat the onion until they caramelized (golden brown)!! 
I use Brandy instead of Cognac (for some recipe) and you always can drop more liquor into the bowl before you serve to your guests! So they can really taste it.......and BE DUI!!....haha... (Just kidding =) )

I think we need more grated Gruyere on top!! 


Outfit for Lunar year party in the evening.
Years ago a Vintage find (Celine wool dress) 

My guests do arrive w/ RED outfit..... for girls, they wear red blouse, red trench or red dress such as ME which is more creative compared to guys who all wear "red polo shirts".......haha.... kind of explaining guys here in Bay area has a very dull selection for their casual wear. :P 
Finally my hair grows down to my shoulder...thanks to my hair stylist who is current in vacation so I can be resistant for the urge to have hair cut. hah...


The weather is too perfect today that I have to wear this whole outfit again ....... 

I love the cozy feeling of bathing in the sun today. 

Have a good Monday!

Yes, yes, yes! Looks delicious! I can't wait to check out the recipe.

Isn't it crazy how warm it's been around here? Taking out those tank tops and pair them with light jackets is what I'm doing too.

How did you party go? Hope everyone followed your directions and wore red.
I wore my red hat again on February 3rd! :)

Delicious! To prevent tearing up when cutting onions, try chewing gum,and voila, no tears. p.s.I wore my red Chanel bag and scarf as promised. You look lovely in red as well. Fun times indeed...Sanaa

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…
