One clutch isn't making enough statement, how about two???? 

Two clutches or two pouches, whatever you do, the rule of thumb is to make sure they go with each other.  How fun and how cute they are next to each other, right?!!!!  Now you can make sure you have enough pockets for iPhone, iPad, lipsticks, coins... and ID... oh, Yeah, I almost always forget to bring ID when switching bags. lol.... {Thank God that w/o ID, the Police can still find me in their database and cut me some slack of letting me go.}

Paisley prints + Bold color = Statement Look!

I am not so fond of Paisley prints before but I guess people do change for the time being. {You now, there is always another patterns in next}I didn't know it was meant to be a menswear prints so maybe that's why it didn't catch my eyes at the first place. 

Now looking at Paisley prints, it reminds me those single life cell formed creatures. Don't get me wrong, they are cute, and I like the way they add extra fun and details to any outfit.

I am a FLOWER!

I didn't update my blog as much as I used to be these days. But I assure you, I am here, in the blogsphpere as long as I am alive. lol...

Ok, here is the truth. I have my acting class as usual tonight. However, tonight is a bit special. The agent of my acting teacher is coming to watch our acting/scene. As you could imagine, how nervous I am since last week.  I need to make sure I have a decent print-out headshot, get down to my lines, and scene costume preparation.... etc. all sorts of little things. Even though I know it is not a big deal, preparation is never enough, agree???!

I even drag my hubby to go through the lines with me... however, you know, he is not helping much when he does all weird tones, faces { I can't stay in the role while trying not to laugh.}..... oh, boy, ... anyway!! Life is short, I am just enjoying it as big as I can. :) 

My lovely acting teacher, Celia Shuman, and moi. ^O^ {You outta love the way she dresses, "La Garçon look with her father's…

Random Diary- Pencil skirt.

Have you noticed that I am really into Burberry Prorsum runway fall 2012 look? Luckily, Yu and I found this Moncler down jacket in a light weight version so we won't look like an idiot wearing it here in California. 

Quilted Jacket with pencil skirt. How sexy and fierce at the same time!! ^O^

Or maybe I just need to create a little volume and texture on my upper body? Does it work? ^O^

Review from the past look~~ My Style!

How I love the look of Bouchra Jarrar 2012 spring look. Here in Nor. California,  fur coats is not that much of a necessity but a fur collar, definitely is a practical add-on.  I always love a little detail of something which makes the whole look interesting.
