Wearing a DvF dress today

many years ago, when i was single, someone said about me, 'still water runs deep' -sure,maybe i looked like that way, but i knew i was more like boiling water underneath the surface back then.

although my life now feels like still water. it is still and it is shallow.

we got dressed this morning and went to shopping district. first stop was Barnes & Noble. while mother in law was in search of her books to buy, DS was reading Car magazines, I was reading Marie Claire, since i don't have them at home.

One title on the cover grabbed my attention, The New Trophy Wives: Asian Women.
OMG, it's provocative! the author is a Shanghai girl.

I bet you would want to read the whole article when you read the sentence like this '...are these women just glorified opportunists? What's so perverse is that while Asians have always revered their elders, sleeping with a guy old enough to be your grandfather is just creepy — in any culture. '


  1. hum....hum...Julia: I just read the bottom lines twice...or 3 times just so to digest every single word you wrote there...... Yes, I do want to read about the content, in fact, I think I should go to Border's tomorrow. haha...

    Your DVF dress is lovely, btw.

  2. thank you Rachel, please let me know what you feel after read the whole thing on Marie Claire magazine latest issue.

    it is weird MC published something like that...

  3. Julia - I'm really loving this DVF dress. That article title does catch attention. I'd be interested in reading too.

  4. This beautiful DVF dress looks really pretty on you. I tried this dress on at NM but on me it looks like a bathrobe :( LOL. Yeah MC always comes with articles like that one. On a previous issue I read something similar but about the young ladies in Russia...very intriguin too.

  5. Hi Betsy,

    you would look great in that dress too. it is flattering on any body type. especially curvier body.

    please let me know what you think after you read that article.

  6. Thanks Claudia!

    i wore the size 2 of this dress. i washed after the wear, and i think it shrunk a little since it is silk jersey. i hope it still fits the way it did before wash.

    now i want to subscribe MC. they are so daring when it comes to the controversial topics.

    i read a story about a mail order bride from Russia from Glamour magazine a couple of issues ago...
