No Constriction.

I said that I need to find a better packing strategy for our weekend retreat in the city. I mean, I can't just pack top and bottom, or tee and skinny jeans...oh, nothing wrong with that, it's just I need an excuse to do more expressive of looks more than just cool casualness.  I wish I had a suitcase that allows me to pull out any outfit in my wardrobe magically. lol...

Anyhow, I did pack my skinny jeans and suede pants with me. They are really easy to work with. A touch of cape, fedora hat and couple accessories, I look as good as wearing season's new pieces that advertised in the fashion magazines. ^_*

The first two looks are perfect for running errands since I am still shopping for furniture for our city apartment.

PS. Today is the last day for an entry of Tatcha $150 or less beauty product giveaway. And there is more Giveaway to come!! Woo hoo~~

Glory Chen

I just found this local city designer, Glory Chen, and his daughter's collectioin, Joy Chen, for shoes. I bought this distressed golden heels with straps and Chinese knots. Speaking of knots, I adore woven, knots, all the fine craftsmanship especially on heels. Those mesh design is just too sexy to see straight what's underneath... ^O^ in this case, the red toe nails. BTW, the heels is 7inches but super comfortable and easy to work in. Surprises!!!!! 

Enjoy all summer activities.

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…
