Inimitable Style!

Everyone agrees that style needed an infusion of personality.  


I am an optimist so I dress colors and I talk loud in an upbeat tone. But my theory is even if you don't dress colors as much as I do, you should quickly venture out and start buying colorful clothes..... just to give yourself something to challenge. You will probably notice you like bright colors just as much as you like black and white. ^^ Dress in colors doesn't necessarily mean you are trying to ingratiate yourself w/ other people but more of opening yourself up and be gratitude!! 


I recently received couple fellow readers' emails from Singapore. I am so happy as they told me that they start noticing the little magic on their daily looks simply by working accessories into their ensembles!! 


This morning, I received a package sent from my dearest friend, Isabel, who lives in Orange County, LA. It is a clutch from ZARA special collection. Isabel bought herself Blue while she got me Green clutch instead. Yes, we'd love the same things but we are totally in different "tones" in terms of styles and colors.

Yellow is so versatile that it is not only can be paired with "Blue" but also "Green" to amplify their contrasting beauty.

I was going to pair it with vintage-find turquoise leather/suede sheath but they might be too close of colors from each other.

My lovely friend, Isabel, carries her electricity blue Zara clutch, and pairs Marni olive green flatform.

Nice color blocking R! Your Zara clutch I think is inspired by Celine's "Clasp Bag". So similar! What a great find! :D Anyway, I like the green color, although for me, I would have used a gray/cream/hot pink/lime green clutch bag instead. :) Taipei does have a lot of treasures in the small boutiques. Wanna visit there again at the end of this year. Hehe! Have a great week ahead!

You look amazing and radiant! Bright colors match your vibrant personality!
Such an unusual look, love the richness and deepness of the colors here! And your make up too :)

Hi, Mia, yes, Bingo!! Isabel and I were talking how not to spend a fortune on Celine clutch but just get a look-alike. ^^
Like wise, hope you have a colorful week too.

Hi, Lily, I love your blog...but the thing is the ad. :P I'd love to leave a comment if I do't have to wait for the ad to finish.....haha.... maybe next time I should be more patient.

And yes, you look lovely in the recycling peasant blouse. It is very flirty on you, dear.

Wow! That Zara clutch is a steal. Love the electric blue version too.

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!!!

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…
