My memorable photo and a face-lift for Zara blazer.

I bought this Zara shoulder patch embroidery blazer while I was in Taipei during summer. Because I needed a black blazer quick for the bathing suit look that I did't really have time to look for a good one. Besides, I have way too many black blazers in my home in USA already that I refuse to shed big bucks for more blazers.  As far as the styles goes, I like the embroidery all over and the shoulder details but I am not so fond of the fitted but not tailored cutting.  Thus, I decided to give it a face-lift by removing its sleeves. Now instead of hiding unloved blazer in the corner of my closet, I think I like the new edgier and custom look even more.  

As for this bathing suit photo, I did for myself for a lifetime memory.

Give yourself a face lift by trying new looks and shoot a photo of yourself for a life time memory.

HOT SHOT, RACHEL! I know I say it every time you wear it, but that Givenchy top is amazing. I definitely like the Zara blazer better as a vest.

And I too love the cropped version of the blazer!

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…
