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:
Elfi Altendorfer yellow spacer safety pin spiky necklace
Elfi Altendorfer pink beads small safety pin bracelet 
Free people metallic peach leg warmers
Chanel 08' large Rodeo drive tote (still my love~~)

4. Shoes:
Alexander Wang Abbey Gray sandal heels

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

3. Accessory:
Elfi Altendorfer fuchsia safety pin spike necklace
Hermes Croc belt with green/taupe buckle
Chanel 08' large Rodeo Drive tote

4. Shoes:
Alain wrap boots



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. 


What's your fave. statement pieces?
Have fun with it.

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.

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…

A Fashion and Gastronomy trip in NEW YORK CITY

I am back from big apple, New York city. I have to say for anyone who loves fashion will love New York city.  My friend and I enjoyed this grand New York fashion and gastronomy trip every minute and every bite. 

I probably will do a proper annotation for each pictures but let's just have those pictures up for now. 

This sweater from Emporio Armani is love at first sight. All the green, navy and purple and the asymmetrical cut of boatneck make this sweater extraordinary.

From Nice to Monte Carlo to Cannes by Car.

(Couple wording revised)

Hubby and I always enjoy driving in between small cities or big cities or any town in Europe. We never get cold feet even people comment about how difficult or troublesome or scary to drive in Europe. As a matter of fact, my kind of driving is like people in Europe, fast, precise and always look "forward" to the destination - so I enjoy NO speed limit( Actually after I post this blog, the taxi driver in Paris told us that now they do have speed limit in Paris and there are a lot of hidden cameras. )  Ouch~~ 

The tip of driving in Europe is you always need two kinds of maps, one is printed map while your the other map, electronic one fails. If you plan to stay longer than a week and you would like to visit some other towns near by, it would come in handy to have an Internet service on your phone.  Thus, you can always upload a Google map, or whatever map to guide you through the cities.  There are local phone service and you can ask about their rate of …
