Wear Runway look in real life: a smart way.

Every season I fancy new pieces and I procure them, don't you? And one thing I know I am good at is I constantly de-clutter my closet and I almost pull out unloved pieces every time I bought new pieces.  Should it be past or new season's piece, I try my best to wear past season clothes with new season's hot pieces.  So I can see if those past season pieces are still useful to me.  You know, you might have something similar from past season but you might accidentally throw those pieces away already. Regret not, like I said, life is too sweet that there is always something NEW for you to be adventurous about.  Simply, they are just clothes, no big deal!!!

Have fun de-clutter your closet.

I am so jealous. your outfits always seem so well put together and they looked so proportionate on you. What sizes do you normally wear? do you have to make any alterations on some of your clothes? what's your height? i'm guessing you are tall with those long legs.

Hey, Shoeaddit,
Thank u.
Regarding ur wondering about how can we wear store bought clothes so trailered on, the answers is u really do need to do adjustment/alteration sometimes. If I find the shorts didnt hit the right length, I fold them. As for trousers, I have seamstress alter them for me. It's just no matter if the clothes are from cheap brand or high end runway pieces, u have to make them work on urself. So, be brave, alter them, shorter them, didnt I say, they re just clothes, no big deal!! ^_^

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…

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…
