French Classic~

Jacquard is such a classic fabric and more or less you will find fashion designers come up some pieces or collection with it. 

I saw Jean Paul Gaultier had one dress made out of Jacquard in De Young's Haute Couture exhibition today. And I am lucky to find this Stella McCartney suits (pants didn't show here) with such delicate weave and lovely rusty coral pink from runway 2011. 


Iosselliani necklace and earrings, momo's march (link here) full sun bracelet 

I don't want to stack many of bracelets on my wrists, 1 or 2 on each is sufficient. 

Elfi Altendorfer safety pin bracelet in coral and black (link here), neon colored glass bracelet 


The busiest fabric/pattern combination but in simple color palette.... they just work!!

SportMax black top, Helmut lang past season asymmetric skirt, Stella McCartney jacquard blazer, Jill Sander past season cut-out sandals, Prada leather woven clutch

They are my new summer colors, now go find yours.

I just want to let you know I've been following your blog for a few months now and have been inspired by the way you put together your outfits. It seem so effortless and chic. In fact I'm so addicted to your blogs and have back tracked your older posts. some of it seem so timeless. simply love it. the only problem now is I'm spending more on clothes and accessories. Lately i've added quite a few dresses. anyway to show us how to layer with dresses and different ways to wear it. (also, can you archive your blogs by months and year?)
Does your hubby always approved of your high dollar purchases? Mine normally won't say anything but I kinda of feel guilty at times.

Thanks, girls! Once u found the right color for u, my suggestion is ; go get as many varieties of things to pair with. ;)

Ah, @Shoeaddit, yes, my hubby would nag when he sees the bill. However, I always tell him, "happiness comes from self-satisfaction!" And of course other things too!! But if dressing up pretty makes me happy and take great care of my family, let me be. I'm not buying cars or diamonds to make huge debt of our bank, a bit of vain is alright!! ^_^
Oh, yes, good quality of clothes/accessories last forever. So I cannot shop at forever 21, AF,...etc. ( j crew, madewell.... Sorts r fine with me.) Since I'm not college students nor 20 something, I need and love things with quality and can have memory to grow old with.
Enjoy ur life and love urself!!

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!!!

I never really want ONE since it never occurs to me that it is a stylish staple in one's wardrobe. :P However, I know I am always enamored by its sophisticated look!! :) Maybe one day I will indulge myself w/ a classic piece like those on the mag.

Aren't those 3 capes classic n' gorgeous!!!!

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…
