Trend Irrelevant, Fashion Connected!!

My friend, Elfi Altendofer, always makes gorgeous and bold necklaces! I couldn't wait to get my hands on her newest pieces!! ^^  I had her custom-make two necklaces for one with pink beads on safety pin and the other with yellow spacers. The outcome of the looks are intricate and one-of-a-kind luxury!

I always have my own interpretation of edge, fun and urban twisted look, as you know!

  Yu gave me the white butterfly patterned lace legging which is too tight to fit me but my solutions is have the legs cut-off and trim the edges as they now are my arm/leg warmers and thus the "bottom" becomes my "SHORTS" for this look!!!

Yellow spacers and pink,clear,yellow, blue beads, translucent glass-tube on big safety-pins spike necklace. 


Urban look 1.

1. Top: 
Max Mara asymmetrical tee

2. Bottom: 
sheered black legging with self-stitched emboridery 
lace shorts (cut off from leggings)
3. Accessory:

A statement piece that differentiates you from anyone else!

Urban Look 2.

1. Top:
Theory black tee
Helmut Lang asymmetrical leather/jersey jacket 
2. Bottom:
Hudson black low-rise skinny jeans

Big and small safety pins intervening between each other!!

I love the strong contrast of Fuschia necklace and blue coated with Deborah Lippomann baby blue glitter nail polish.

Rachel, I adore urban look #1!!!

I hv a question, when ur kids were little, did u wear heels to go out with them? I mean when u were on ur own. I have hard time dressing up with a 5 months old in hand.

Hi, Catherine:
You know, one of my personal philosophy is to "make everything work" as much possible as I can. Yu gifted me those lace leggings and it would hurt me or even her if it didn't really work out on ideas pop in. That's almost how I see everything in I am a pathetic optimist sometimes! :P

Thanks, I love that fuchsia that really flatters my skin tone as well. ^^

No, Chocolaine, I don't wear stiletto while my baby are only 5 month old..I'd say that will probably too much to handle ... I had my second one while Niel (eldest son) is only 4 mon. old so wedge is the best I can walk in with. But as they grow older, like 3 years old, I tell them constantly that please follow me and hold my hands as I can't chase you around... you know, kids nowadays are smart that they know you'd chase them if you just continuously doing it and act panic whenever they run around. They play a fool out of you... :p

Anyway, my point is : relax and wear something "with height" but not necessary in HEELS if you are not comfortable with. This way, give you and your kids a "sign" that eventually you will walk back in heels in no time!! ^^

Ah, enjoy the time with your precious!! Especially he is your first.

Thank you, Savvy Gal. I am glad you like that fuchsia necklace and I will let my friend, Elfi, knows about your compliments.

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…

4/12 (Sun.) Day 2 in Vegas w/ Girl Friends!

First of all, I have to thank Irene for coordinating every one's schedule to make this dream trip happen.

On Sunday, we planned to treat ourselves to a beauty spa in Mandalay Bay Hotel. Our appointment at The Bathhouse spa is at 1 PM. But since yesterday we stood up so late, we didn't wake up until 11 AM. However, neither Cathy nor I think we actually fell asleep as we were still so exhausted when waked up. And I am the one who slept the least but got up from the bed the first. I went to gamble alone after clubbing till 5 or 6 in the morning. Well, the time in Vegas is too luxury to stay in bed anyway. lol Pei probably slept not bad at all as I can hear she snores persistently throughout the night. haha............

We each had either Swedish or Deep-muscle massage. I recall my last massage is when I traveled back to Taiwan. My Dad took us family to Thailand and he called for two people to our room. In Thailand, most massagers' body frame are small-built but I am surpri…
