Not Your Typical Week Night of Silicone Valley.

   Being back at Bay Area is nice but a party held in Neiman Marcus with bubbles, wine, and whisky-tasting is even better. It's a Gentry magazine 25-year-anniversary party. Guess who was on their November issue cover in 2017? Me! What an honor! Upon arrival, the yellow rug and two matching pillar-shaped sidetables instantly uplift my mood. I certainly favor the pop of yellow over red or black cliche settings.  The McLaren 570s by the entrance definitely shouts LUXURIOUS EVENT at you. What a wonderful way to spend a Wednesday night, isn't it?! I cheered internally but acted nonchalant while cruising in. I was not really present for the event itself but to check out an Italian jewelry collection- Miseno. You can see how meticulously hand-carved cameo by the sculpture is. The jewelry designer is drawing some potential ring and pendant designs on the spot with Prismacolor markers as well. All the fun is rolled into one place!

   While browsing, trying on jewelry, and chatting away with the Miseno company owner, I learnt that he is from Naples, Italy. At that moment, I instantly wanted to scream in excitement which I probably did but I can't quite recall now. I gathered all the intel from him and squared away the stereotypical impressions about Naples and southern Italy on the Internet. Hopping between hotels is exhausting when traveling with family. Now not only do I have a reliable insider guide about Naples, Sorrento, Salerno and Amalfi coast, but also a solid plan for hotel stays. Just chill while I am on it! 




Of course I have to show you: Moi.

Very gentleman-y lounge vibe

 Amazing hand carved cameo

 This sea shell is from Naples

 The slightly peachy sea shell is from Caribbean 

 Chic Athleisure is my go-to day look these days: Adidas slacks, Stella McCartney kicks, Christian Louboutin man's clutch and Brady Melville top.

 Bacon wrapped dates, crab cakes, smoked duck over polenta with kumquat glaze.....etc. 

 Thanks for Antonio's enthusiastic recommendations of traveling in Naples and beyond that almost makes me feel I'm almost a local. :) 
What caught my eyes from Miseno's collections is their double layered loop design and especially the pink sapphire. Check them out in the store when you are in Neiman Marcus. 


An awesome team of sculpture artist and designer

The amazing jewelry drawings. I get to keep the one with Owl cameo far right. 

 Until next time...
xoxo

Always Posh in my Own Styles.

I had a busy week, plus the last bits of planning for NYC trip.  Dinner and brunch reservations, and we even bought Hamilton musical tickets. Since we are visiting NYC during Memorial weekend, hope we can find some good bargain shopping in The Big Apple too. One thing I am sure with this girls' trip is we are going to have tons of fun before one of my gf goes to law school this fall. It is a clean slate for her and I am sure it will also be a magnificent journey down the road. 
Back to my all time passion: Fashion. I like fine garments and I collect them to do mix and match over past seasons. However, what makes my style unique is intricate cuttings and perfect fitting that flatter my body. I don't follow trends just to claim I am fashion forward. I have my own methods of sorting through marketing injected advertisements for the best seasonal looks. Popularity isn't gained from what brands you wear but what styles you choose to wear. I wear street fashion in discretion just…

Wedge + Clog ! MINE is Clog + Heel!

I came across this Max Mara clog heels. I can't help myself buying it.


Now I am very excited.....why? Cause' it is extraordinary. I love the golden studded along the leather and since I don't like wedge too much, this stiletto is perfect for me.


So, did you see the bottom picture to the right? Kate Olsen!!? or Dree Hemingway's looks might work w/ Max Mara clog heels. ( Whose pic. is the very first one w/ fuchsia vest) Normally I am not a copy cat, but this time, I will see if I have something similar like what she wears w/. Yes, that will be a good start to tackle this pair of heels.

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…
