I haven't written much these days on my blog but I am updating every single details of my life on FB. It is just so much fun when you can share stuff with friends so quickly at FB. I don't do tweeting but maybe I should. Oh well, life is busy enough~~~ ^O^

What's your fresh look for holidays?? Red, neutral, glittering sequins.....as long as you try to stay away from the black and be comfortable of what else you are in, your looks is always refreshing. I love sequins and I almost always wear sequins during holidays and I think it brings up my most holiday mode ever!! What about you?? Enjoy a holiday mode!!
I did a face-lift for those past-season pieces, as a matter of fact, I only paired them in whole new different ways for a fresher look. The reason is I know my closet is full and I really need to be very selective when buying new pieces from now on. With the crazy Black Friday Sales going on, I figured that I better inject myself with some hot and trendy looks before I head out. This way, I won't end up buying things that I might already have but just simply fall into the trap that I want something newer while trotting around in the city. ^O^ Don't you think it is a pretty good mind-setting strategy??!!

I am a sucker for prints and high fashion designers. Anything in intricate prints, luxe. fabric and details catch my eyes instantly. After Dries Van Norten, I found myself another designer to watch: Manish Arora. I can't wait to get my hands on his pieces. Unequivocally in lust.
I am an ambitious-driven woman so even now I am Mother of 3, I still have my own passion. Not just for fashion, I do modeling and acting. So when people ask me what do I do for living, I tell them, a house-keeper, a model and an actress. Yes, that's the moment, I am so proud of myself and that's the moment my family is so proud of me. Every woman should have a passion of their own, no matter what kind of passion is, no matter how much revenue that passion generate, as long as you are happy and you are confident. Be inspired and inspire more people around you.

I love high waist pants and skirts, for me, they are such classic pieces to accentuate a slim body. No matter pants or skirts, they add instant retro chic look; For more glamourous outcome, I paired my outfit with another arty necklace. Like I said, looking for a modern retro look, you always have to add a fun accessory. Voilà~

It is sweater season .... and I love both sweaters and sweat-shirts but never want to look sluggish in them. Besides, the wardrobe required in my most auditions, they request me to dress hip and casual. In order to achieve that look, I really pick the pieces that's not so plain and give myself a nice pop. Of course, don't want to over kill by a look. What about you? Are you going to auditions like I do? I would love to have you share with me about how do you dress yourself up for auditions and give me some pointers. ^O^

I will shoot a scene for a small story/film at Lake Chabot on Thursday. Will you check out the website or Facebook at thelightedbridge.com when you get a chance? It's an interesting story and I like it a lot.
Be cozy, and have fun with your sweaters and knit top. xoxo Rachel
What does comfortable ensemble mean to me? Hum... something cotton, something silk and definitely something still looks stunning on me when put together. When I found something flatters me, I wore it a lot...a lot in a way that I wore it couple or several days in a roll. I pair it in so many ways that my friend can never forget I have that piece of clothes that I treasure so much. ^O^ Simply, I feel it and they'll see it too. If you ever receive compliments on a particular color or any outfit, wear it more often. That will not only give you a good mood but also boost your confidence. So why not wear it more often, right? I am a sucker for any shade of green given at current state and I am surprised that this Dries Van Noten printed blouse is so versatile that I can also pair it with my Topshop forest green shorts I found at Barcelona last year. Aren't we all tend to buy the clothes in similar colors over and over again? But I am glad that my wardrobe is not filled with black and white ....... ( Of course, nothing wrong with that, it's just I believe there must be one shade of rainbow colors that flatters everyone.) Yup, now, go find your color and wear it more often. Make it YOUR color.

The temperature dropped a little these couple days in San Francisco. As far as I am concerned, I really like the cool air right now but not to the point the wind feels chill when blows on the face. People start layering their scarves on the street but what really excites me is I finally get to take out our pumpkins and small decorations for the house. Inviting, is what I want for my friends to feel and holidays, is what really gets my mood lifted!! ^O^

As a fashion devotee, I love runway looks. And as far as personal style is concerned, there is no better way to observe and do experiment by trying different looks until one day you are confident and comfortable in every outfit you put together. Certainly, it takes time and it takes practice and learning. I would say i have pretty good sense of dressing myself up and a strong personal style, but in acting, I am not as lucky as native English speakers. There is always a struggle for me to have the first instinct with each line I am reading. Sometimes I feel that if I am reading Chinese, I could have done a better job in acting. Well, but again, life will not be so interesting and challenging if I could do everything so easily. Anyway, it is still a long journey for me in acting but I am doing it and most importantly, I am enjoying it. Just like one of my teacher said, going each audition is like doing a job already. There is no need to be nervous since you are supposed to be good at your job. Whether or not you get the role you audit for, you have done it and just move on to next audition and wishfully, one day you get paid by wining the role.
Fortunately, my life is not just about fashion, I have everyone ever wishes for: a loving family, lots of good friends, 3 lovely children, a supportive husband and a whole lot surprises reoccur in life.
