9 to 9 Chic, Alexa Chung for Madewell!!

Yes, I need to look chic from 9 A.M. to 9 P.M and from Sunday to Saturday. I seldom take a break from fashion unless I am dead. { make sense, right?} 

My girl friends and I are planning a Vegas trip in Nov. In fact, we are all set to go for we already had our plane tickets confirmed and hotel booked. Now, it's time to arrange our 3-day-looks during our stay in the sin city!!!! 

The other day Pei is talking to me about this Alexa Chung collaboration with Madewell and she has ordered couple pieces online which she is sort of like and dislike for many reasons. I personally am not too fancy about "celebrity's collaboration" in RTW as I distinguish them apart from amateurs, somewhat professionals and very professionals in what they do. I appreciate designers for their genius works, passion and true talents so that leave me skeptical about the idea of putting "celebrities' style" on the apparel business. 

Well, all that being said is I have to at least try something on of this Alexa Chung collection to do the justices. Fair enough, right? 

I fall in love with this ivory wool/Mohair and contrasting trim cardigan for its resemblance to the cardigans from Chanel. {She does love Chanel, doesn't she? Besides, Alexa reminds me of my Valentino Rock studs heels as well since she seems very fond of that heels too.}  (Cardigan at $158)

Look 1 
Classic is basic. 

Chanel 06' black short sleeve cotton tee (Gifted by Renee), Alexa Chung for Madewell ivory cardigan, Kate Spade cropped peacoat, Vintage find pleated skirt, Chanel 09' Chanel crown brooch, 09' mash booties, Urban outfitter gold triangle earrings.

Accessories make your look fun and chic.

Chanel 10' ivory medium/large classic bag and Valentino rockstuds taupe heels 2011

I like this look the best.. particularly because of the heels!! 

Look 3 
Baseball player {except I am not!! lol........}

Give me a bat, I can strike a baseball player pose to the perfection!!
Cashmere striped scarf, Chanel 08' star brooch, Chanel garden tweed bag 11', Joey found hand embellished spiky leather on Converse, Hermes Croc. belt 

Her style is profound and this whole "Alexa Chung for Madewell" collection is pretty much her signature style in miniature. Well, I like it~~ ^O^

Pair your looks with different shoes for a heck of fun...

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…
