I didn't bring Mackage down jacket with me and I think I am always chill-resistant under excitement while traveling in Europe!!!! ^O^

Casa Mila

I didn't expect to find Marni in Spain but we did...and I think it is the destiny. 


Why? 


We are actually looking for another store which only Madrid has it now. The location : Career del Procenca 304 is now MARNI!!! I was surprised and ecstatic. Hubby even find his down jacket there. 


Wait, you asked: "Down Jacket?" 


Yes, that's right. The only store carries Marni Man's collection in Spain. Hubby is now over the top as that Marni down jacket is not just a down jacket, the design is like a collage mixed of quilted down, jersey/cotton. Therefore,  the look is extraordinary and it is on sale that we probably won't see another man wearing the same thing while we are back in USA. lol..

Travel with 3 kids' isn't easy but we managed very well. We actually visited a lot of places and I uploaded like 200 pictures on FB already. Tomorrow, we are going to Montserrat!!


Gotta go get my rest.

Always Posh in my Own Styles.

I had a busy week, plus the last bits of planning for NYC trip.  Dinner and brunch reservations, and we even bought Hamilton musical tickets. Since we are visiting NYC during Memorial weekend, hope we can find some good bargain shopping in The Big Apple too. One thing I am sure with this girls' trip is we are going to have tons of fun before one of my gf goes to law school this fall. It is a clean slate for her and I am sure it will also be a magnificent journey down the road. 
Back to my all time passion: Fashion. I like fine garments and I collect them to do mix and match over past seasons. However, what makes my style unique is intricate cuttings and perfect fitting that flatter my body. I don't follow trends just to claim I am fashion forward. I have my own methods of sorting through marketing injected advertisements for the best seasonal looks. Popularity isn't gained from what brands you wear but what styles you choose to wear. I wear street fashion in discretion just…

Wedge + Clog ! MINE is Clog + Heel!

I came across this Max Mara clog heels. I can't help myself buying it.


Now I am very excited.....why? Cause' it is extraordinary. I love the golden studded along the leather and since I don't like wedge too much, this stiletto is perfect for me.


So, did you see the bottom picture to the right? Kate Olsen!!? or Dree Hemingway's looks might work w/ Max Mara clog heels. ( Whose pic. is the very first one w/ fuchsia vest) Normally I am not a copy cat, but this time, I will see if I have something similar like what she wears w/. Yes, that will be a good start to tackle this pair of heels.

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…
