Winter Lace!!

No one would disagree with me that why we can't wear lace in the winter time, right? As long as you layer it right, it adds another dimensional feminine flair to any outfit.  

This is today's basic piece: 
Ancient Earl Jean lace tulle top {Does this brand even exist still?}, BCBG Max Azure necklace, reclaimed mink pom pom with sapphire white gold earring 

This morning I was over the top as I was expecting a package from a friend, Shui Chen, from her 2011 fall collection. I purchased a Cowl neck knit vest with leather trim and I have anticipated it since last week to arrive to complete my outfit of the day!! {So, before it gets here, I had a running nose but resisted to put on any layer that wouldn't seem to perfectly fit.}

This is the look when you zip up the vest!
{ps. I bought size s which is slightly bigger than my usual size cause' i like to wear it as a vest coat.}

{Yes, I insisted on wearing that BCBG necklace even you can't see its whole design underneath the vest. But remember, it's all about the layering .. something peeking through. ^^}

My complete ODJ
Earl Jean lace tulle top, Shui Chen cowl neck knit vest, Agnes' b homme pants (altered to be tapered legs and add two tuxedo stripes at sides), Chanel 08' gray jumbo classic, Manolo Blahnik embossed snake sandals, Prada minimalist sunglasses 11' 

I love the metallic sheen and structured fabric of this ancient Agnes b' man collection's pants when I bought it. I had it altered more than three times over the past 10 years to update its look however I want!!!! 

Tuxedo pants meets feminine lace and soft knit = perfect balance of macho and feminine!! 

Have you tried the look of Tuxedo pants in winter time yet?

Love the "rough" look of the necklace and the versatility of the cowlneck vest!

Have a great weekend!
LOVE those pants! Btw, that studded evening bag is actually Versace for H&M. I was just commenting on the fact that the varying studs have been used by Miu Miu before. Sorry for the confusion. Have a great weekend!

Ah, thanks Mona. Pei gifted that necklace on my birthday. Very unique and very tribute... You also should check out the vest. Such a great statement piece in small price.

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. …

4/12 (Sun.) Day 2 in Vegas w/ Girl Friends!

First of all, I have to thank Irene for coordinating every one's schedule to make this dream trip happen.

On Sunday, we planned to treat ourselves to a beauty spa in Mandalay Bay Hotel. Our appointment at The Bathhouse spa is at 1 PM. But since yesterday we stood up so late, we didn't wake up until 11 AM. However, neither Cathy nor I think we actually fell asleep as we were still so exhausted when waked up. And I am the one who slept the least but got up from the bed the first. I went to gamble alone after clubbing till 5 or 6 in the morning. Well, the time in Vegas is too luxury to stay in bed anyway. lol Pei probably slept not bad at all as I can hear she snores persistently throughout the night. haha............

We each had either Swedish or Deep-muscle massage. I recall my last massage is when I traveled back to Taiwan. My Dad took us family to Thailand and he called for two people to our room. In Thailand, most massagers' body frame are small-built but I am surpri…
