A perfect deconstructed pants ON SALE.

We all love a cool attitude that pants can achieve especially when the pants by no means elongate our legs.


A pants in perfect draped silhouette can be uber flattering even when we just wear flats. Who would want to look short and fat at lower half body, right??


 I was browsing Philip Lim pre-fall and fall looks and fall in love again with his strong cutting in blazers, sleek jackets, and tailored pants. For me, minimalist look is too plain, but I can always inject something like those piping pants, or deconstructed knits to make my look with more details. Glad I can still see those sheered see-through is utilized on his 2012 runway.  That little sexiness always make people wonder.... is that one piece or are they actually separated?

Hi, these pants look amazing on you, it is even better than model wears in catwalk! Can you please advise if these pants are true to size as Shopbop doesnt have many left now. Thanks.

Hi 914w:
Thanks, u re very kind.
The fit of the pants is very true, and since the waist has an adjustable feature, that won't be an issue. I think most size 2 fit normal body type ( lean ). Size 4 would fit girls with bigger butt and rounder/fuller body. Because of the side zipper feature, u can always unzip them if unfortunately ordered smaller size than ur normal clothes.
Good luck and I'm sure u ll like it.

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.

From Nice to Monte Carlo to Cannes by Car.

(Couple wording revised)

Hubby and I always enjoy driving in between small cities or big cities or any town in Europe. We never get cold feet even people comment about how difficult or troublesome or scary to drive in Europe. As a matter of fact, my kind of driving is like people in Europe, fast, precise and always look "forward" to the destination - so I enjoy NO speed limit( Actually after I post this blog, the taxi driver in Paris told us that now they do have speed limit in Paris and there are a lot of hidden cameras. )  Ouch~~ 

The tip of driving in Europe is you always need two kinds of maps, one is printed map while your the other map, electronic one fails. If you plan to stay longer than a week and you would like to visit some other towns near by, it would come in handy to have an Internet service on your phone.  Thus, you can always upload a Google map, or whatever map to guide you through the cities.  There are local phone service and you can ask about their rate of …
