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.

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. …

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…

A Fashion and Gastronomy trip in NEW YORK CITY

I am back from big apple, New York city. I have to say for anyone who loves fashion will love New York city.  My friend and I enjoyed this grand New York fashion and gastronomy trip every minute and every bite. 

I probably will do a proper annotation for each pictures but let's just have those pictures up for now. 


This sweater from Emporio Armani is love at first sight. All the green, navy and purple and the asymmetrical cut of boatneck make this sweater extraordinary.
