Cozy summer!

I didn't update much nor write on my blog as diligent as I used to be. However, I assure you that my fashion sense isn't getting sluggish nor being out-dated at all.  It's just we bought a new apartment in the SF city and I am so busy in decorating it. You must agree with me how fun it is, right?  But when today I was up in our unit trying to put up this gorgeous chandelier with the aid of our contractor,  I can't tell you how many obstacles we ran into during the time of installation. Oh, well, but we managed it well and get it done by the end of the day. 



Speaking of trotting around in the city, you should know that it is always a good idea to bring an extra coat or something warm with you. The temperature varies dramatically from day to night in San Francisco.  I know couple friends of mine are visiting the city during summer time.  I am here to remind myself bringing extra jackets for my kids while we enjoy a city retreat on the weekends. 

I had almost tone on tone color on me today but I don't think the look is tedious at all.  (I had a reader asked me to post looks with Valentino studded heels and here it is. Sorry it took me this long to have a feel wearing them. :P) 

Loose-fit knitting sweater, oatmeal scarf wrap, Y-3 big pocket cropped pants, Iosselliani lamp and crystal earrings, Hermes Mykonos Collier De Chien,  Hermes Clic clac bracelet, Dannijo friendship bracelet, Momo's March wooden beads bracelet, Prada leather woven clutch 12', Valentino studded heels 

Wear tone on tone and have fun.

Thanks everyone. I love that Chandelier at the first sight and I think it is quite popular that manufacture sold it out twice.

yes, this apartment will be our vacation home in the city whenever we need a city retreat away from Suburban. haha.. ^O^

Have a good weekend my friends.

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. …

This season, there is one more thing in my never-ending clothing wish list: A Cape!!!

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…
