Keep Your Hats Up!!

I love hats and I probably own at least 20 hats by now and counting. I collect styles widely from baseball caps, finely knitted beret, cow boy hat, big brim straw hat, vintage decorative hat with veil on which my hubby hates the most but I just love it.   I confidently say that I adore hats just as much as British women do. Yes, HATs in Britain are ritualized!! Wouldn't you agree with me that an add-on "Hat" can be a sexy wink if you wear it right and a leverage to your plain outfit?!! 

I ordered couple tweed/wool hats from Shyan, whom I'd like to call as a head piece master. I guess it makes great sense as he lives in Birmingham, Scotland, and the weather is mostly gray and brutal, hats are practical!!! All his hats are handmade in 100% leather or the finest wool and made with water proof wax on.  I adore the old fashion look of those plaid, herringbone, and houndstooth woven in Scotland.  Those hat pieces all have a casual sophisticated touch which allows me easily incorporate them into my wardrobe. For me, wearing hats is simply a self-expression that has nothing to do with classism as opposed to British people. 

Shyan also makes great woven jackets which I couldn't wait to see his final production. Until then, I will just wear these hats and enjoy our sunny day in Northern California. 

Note1 : You can contact Shyan from his FB to know more of his hat production.
Note2 : I am not affiliate with his FB.

Wouldn't you want to take a closer look with all the thoughtful inner lining?


No two identical inner lining... 
This one turns out to be my favorite piece.

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…
