Modern Pop Art Fashion (Part I)!

It is almost my dear friend, Cathy, birthday. Thus, a celebration is a must!!  We love all sorts of celebration, it is a perfect excuse for us to get together, an excuse to buy new clothes, and an excuse to do extra chores in the house while anticipating the upcoming girls' night out. lol... Our non-conventional celebration is each birthday girl have to pick a theme for us to dress up and a restaurant for attending the party. 

This time, Cathy picked POP ART as the theme. Ugh~~~~ You know it is a tough one, right? Tough for me in a sense that when is the last time I wore a GIANT logo or a printed popular idol on me... hum... I pondered so long that I cannot recall at all. NO,... nada...never!! Therefore, the only approach for me is patterns, bright colors and modern and substantial enough to spot it right away as POP ART. 

Obviously, the outfit I worn today is my modern attempt into the pop art world. I clashed all popular patterns of chains, stripes, argyle and bows. I love my outfit and I think it is very daring. However, it is not as fun and bright as I expected.  Therefore, I am back to where I started, grrr...... nothing. I will have to come up something really bright and absolutely no commercial prints ASAP for this saturday!!!  And for sure I will share our POP ART outfits with you after Saturday! Stay Tuned!!!!

Hi Rachel,

I somehow came upon your blog and spent the whole weekend browsing through your posts. Very amazing that you are a mom and yet still look so good and have such inspiration to put amazing outfits together.
Jealous of all the Chanel flaps you have. All the resissue's. :)
Also love seeing your travel photos as I often visit the same place and it's nice to see where I can visit the next time I visit.

Continue the good work with your blog and family. I am going to follow you and come back to visit.

Cheers, Jacquie

Thank you, dear Jacquie. I enjoy all the inspiration I surf on the Internet and then implement the idea with my clothes. It's fun, isn't it!? I update my FB instantly almost every hour/everyday but not on my blog lately. But I ll try to catch up my fast paced life activities for my blog since I know there is friend out there like u waiting to get inspired too. ^_^

Have a fab. Day!

I have a question for you Rachel. :)
I like your Shui Chen sweater and thinking of getting one myself. I get itchy easily from mohair, etc..
Is the material on this Shui Chen sweater made of wool/cashmere? Is it itchy? soft? Comfy?
Your feedback would be great.
thanks, J

Hi Jacquine:
it is Alpaca wool, but lined with charmuse. If u are talking about the crawl neck sleeveless sweater not the poncho I later scored! If u are interested, go to her website and tell her u are my friend from blog and maybe she can give u a friend discount! ^_^

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.
