Are you dizzy by looking at those colors and layering on me? 
No, you shouldn't. And you knew that those mix-n'-not-so-match style permeates you every season is an omnipresent current trend. 

Now, pull yourself together coz if you don't, you won't be able to maximize the way you dress your past season clothes. Ah..... Sometimes, complication is the solution. { I know, we still want new things every season... and that's why you should buy COLORS and stock them in your wardrobe.}

I am basically a GREENIE for clothes, I buy, I recycle, I reuse, I gift my clothes to my friends and ultimately, I magically work everything remaining in my wardrobe into my daily ensemble. 

Marni gold dress (detail at the back of this dress here), Neil Barrett black pleated sheer tunic, Marni pink cropped pants, Proenza Schouler large satchel, Elfi Altendorfer safety pin large bracelet and purple stone necklace, Vintage flower brooch, Jill Sander cut-out platform ankle-strap heels, Barton Perreira cat's eye sunglasses 

[I guess for the bracelet this chunky, there is no need to do the piling or compiling...whatsoever]

Pile bracelets rule No. 1 
Pile your jewels as close to their colors as possible 

Pile bracelets rule No. 2 
Work the classic pieces with cheap baubles 

Pile bracelets rule No.3
If nothing works, give it up.  {wear it as is.}

I love this Hermes white CDC with gold HW as it goes so well with the natural beads bracelets, and rest of brass or gold tone trinkets. 

MY outfit du Jour 
A day of me being a minimalist! 


CNC (costume national) black low-back dress with ruffle details, Mcginn cropped blazer with satin lapel, Monalo blanhnik snake-skin kitten heels, Hermes Mykonos lizard CDC,  Oscar de la Renta sapphire earrings, Flying lizard necklace, Elisabeth Cole dagger 18K necklace, Alaia red laser-cut tote 2011, Prada LTD tortoise sunglasses 2011

The Oscar de la renta has both green and blue sapphire which echoes my Hermes Mykonos (blue) bracelet. Meanwhile, the bracelet (CDC) is lizard skin which matches Monalo snake skin heels. 

Maybe I can find a way to pile that Hermes Mykonos CDC.
Have more fun after a hump day!

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…
