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…

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.
