Recap - Valentino Tulle Blouse!

I also bought this $34 lace shorts at "SWAY" in Santa Cruz last weekend. It seems that they have MYSPACE web page currently and just set up their FB account. ^^ The lace on the shorts is very intricate and it probably would look like $$$ with tulle. You know, like the one on Valentino!!

(Feather-like volume for this rose shaped tulle blouse and the longer leather trim shorts compliments with each other on this Valentino runway look.)

I love the voluminous tops I layered and when paired with this lace short-shorts, the juxtaposition is now perfect!!


This is my interpretation of tulle/shorts/sheer sexy!! ^^

Very lovely, can't believe how toned you are..Beautiful and gorgeous as always. Loving Chantecaile products..have you tried the lip gloss yet?
litlstrawberry said…
hey, Sanaa, how are you? Did you get the AllSaint leather jacket after all?

I have tried almost everything from Cathy works for them and I'd have chance to "sample" everything. ^^ I have their lip gloss and lip stick (the one with Pulp effect) and they are nice. I still like YSL lip colors better.

Oh, yeah, I am very addicted to working out... I should said I am freaked out by the effect of aging and gravity. :P haha.....
litlstrawberry said…
oh, Sanaa, could you tell me again the movie that you have been asking me to watch?
Mona P said…
Rachel, if anyone can pull off wearing these shorts, it is definitely you!

Looks great and I must say ... very daring! :)

Hi Rachel, yeah I ended up getting the AllSaint Brocade Jacket in Taupe. I love it, I would never have thought of getting it, until I saw you wearing one. I thought it was too serious....thanks for the tips on wearing it, so it looks more fun. I must try YSL lip colors, I love Chantecaille especially their lip potion and lip nourishing salve. It is as good as the Sisley one but without the heavy price tag.You are so lucky to have a friend who works for them...I am envious.

You made me chuckle with the comment of freaking out by the effect of aging and are so real. I always worry about my body too and I have not had children yet. Do you use any firming products, I have been using Rodial body sculpture and Sisley firming serum after my runs and my skins gets firmer and more toned. Not so sure they are worth investing in if you exercise as much as you do, but thought of sharing them with you.

I forgot the title of the film I will check it out again. xox Sanaa

p.s. Rachel, Have you thought of joining Twitter, I think you might enjoy it.
litlstrawberry said…
Thank you,Mona!! It's so sweet of you!!

hey, Sanaa, yes, I'd keep on applying those firming cream...for me, they are definitely help long term smooth and firmness of your skin and overall look. I would believe your skin gets replenish overtime you put on cream...(of course plus you work out too.)

I also apply things like those firming cream on and off but I do believe eventually you will see the older we get, the more obvious result we should see. NO ugly woman ...only the lazy ones is the words I believe!!!!!!!!

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. …

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…
