Innocently Materialistic!

No, I am not looking for an excuses for my recent purchases but Yes, I am talking about how I cherish friends' gifts that I had to show them my gratitude through wearing their gifts along with my ensembles ASAP

Aren't you so excited to see friends make good use of whatever stuff you bought especially for them?!! I would and I definitely want them to know that they and their gifts mean so much to me. 

Therefore, I am innocently materialistic while showing off those pretty things. 

Ben Amun triple chained beaded necklace (gifted from Cathy), Christian Louboutin heels, evil-eyes bracelet, madewell knotted bracelet, J crew black threaded crystal bracelet, momo's march wooden beaded bracelet 

This Prabal Gurung black sheer shirt becomes my classic and fun piece.  

{Cathy: As opposed to wearing the necklace mysteriously in a tribe look, I hope you'd like this one as well.)

Always looking awesome Rachel!
You are such a good friend, and yes I agree I'm over the top when my friends make good use of the things I got for them, it is more satisfying than buying things for myself!
I'm following you through FB, and I don't post here much, I will try to balance this out better!!!

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!!!

I never really want ONE since it never occurs to me that it is a stylish staple in one's wardrobe. :P However, I know I am always enamored by its sophisticated look!! :) Maybe one day I will indulge myself w/ a classic piece like those on the mag.

Aren't those 3 capes classic n' gorgeous!!!!

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…
