Food for Your Soul - art!

I am a city girl but once a while, a total seclusion from the crowd is needed. I need that isolation for recharging myself and I also need the exercise to renew my brain activities. Nevertheless, I so need the art to feed my soul.  

What about you? 

Do you think a good piece of art, ( in any form) is worth more than your $4000 Chanel bag or $10,000 Hermes Birkin??  I think if you find an art that inspires you, it's priceless. 

Last weekend I went to Los Altos' art festival after a short retreat from the city.  I really like this kind of arrangement. Now we stay at our suburban house during the weekdays and then I can enjoy city vibe on the weekends. Life is all about balance, right?  Everything in moderation is the key - my dear friend, Isabel, always reminds me of that. 

Here are couple things that attractive to me and I share them with you.  Hope you like them too. 




If you are looking for a statement piece with heavy metal or tribute look, you are in luck here. ^O^  However, you can only procure them in certain stores or at festival for now.

I normally won't draw my eyes onto horses painting but this one has that calm and a noble pedigree history look to it. Love it~~

My daughters' art teacher, Haelee, did this painting. I love her precise, strong and clean illustration.  Primary colors are pretty if you know how, aren't they!! ^O^
This is now under my possession and I will hang this on our new apartment in the city.

Ex-Voto Gown by Jean Paul Gaultier 
I went to De Young Museum for Jean paul Gaultier's Haute Couture exhibition today. 


{ I didn't know what ex-Voto is all about until we went to Sausalito last weekend.  It is a symbol of vow which is popular in south of Italy. They hang those on the wall in a church and each represent a prayer or a wish I guess. }

I had this for a very long time and now I know what Ex-Voto is and especially I saw the pieces sewed on one of Jean Paul Gaultier's dress.  Life is full of surprises, we learn new things everyday. ^O^






Have a good day and enjoy a good art.

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…
