Unostentatious Elegance!

While my dad bravely takes charge of caring for my 3 kids, I can't be happier just to watch TV or movies at home. You know, {Ok, even you didn't know, but now you know.) there are over 100 channels including locals and oversea TV stations broadcasted in Taiwan everyday and you almost can find good eats and even activities to do 7/24 everywhere.

I was watching an old movie {Apparently, to me, it is like 10 years ago} the other day and saw this beautiful woman worn a pretty silver with glitter dress.  Instantly, the dress reminded me of my new one!!  Mine is designed by a promising Taiwanese designer, "CHU!!"  I thought to myself that I needed to go back to Elite to explore more Taiwanese designers and I think they needed to be recognized as lots of them are really talented in my mind's eye.

Fashion has history, so does textile silhouette!! 
I adore the ideas of utilizing smart cuts and drapes without redundant embellishments on both dresses to achieve the quality of sexy and feminine look!!

Right below: I was trying on copious compilation of colors underneath that Opening Ceremony crochet/fringe knit top ...... {grr... the underneath orange blouse seems not to comply with me....}

"Trippen" a Shoe brand from Germany, a flair mixed of European style and practicality.

I was debating whether should I visit HK, Singapore or Korea. Regardless, a good pair of walking shoes is in need...then I found Trippen "happy" collection with rubber sole platform!! {"Perfect" as my mind screamed.}



1. Top:
J Crew golden tank top
Opening Ceremony black crochet/fringe top ( I found this link for its dress and in white version)

My dear hubby, you forgot to use "flash" under this overcast weather!!

I couldn't stop but gazed at the intricacy of this crochet fringe top even when I am wearing it on me.... Aw..... ^O^

Summer is not so hot in Taipei after all... {Well, thanks to the typhoon!!}

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…
