Lunch at Sel de la Terre

Brown is not my color choice. But this brown cardi was sitting on the top of my sweater pile, i thought it was there for a reason.

but now i am looking at this outfit i was in, something was not right or not stylish about it. but this was what i wore to a lunch -planned,  and B's playdate- coincident.

B's bff got a new pair of *super cool* sneaker, so did he.  I did not get anything...from this trip.

Sammy's B Day at Davio's

All these years, little Sammy has grown to a half man. 

He enjoys fine dining.  

my pasta dinner with some lobster meat on the top.

hubby has not aged much. he looks pretty much same as his 10 years ago. I, on the other end, changed a lot on my face. I look at myself and see a middle age Chinese woman, who holds on to her purse wherever she goes. haha... 

two and a half men

Wide leg Pants

Wide leg pants is one of the trends of the season. I like this trend, but only wish i have more junk in the trunk.

the green H scarf add a hint of Spring. and wool Burbery pants were from a few years ago - I am glad i can still fit into them. Booties are by Loeffler Randall. Chinese knot cashmere sweater is by Magaschoni, also an old item from my wardrobe.

we went out for a lunch, bought some toys for B, and two sets of new sheets for his bed.
No one had to cook tonight, we bought daddy take-out.

Lady's Day Out at Lotus

Every two month, we get together and enjoy some time without kids and husbands. We went to this nice Taiwan buffet place today. After 2 hours lunch, other ladies went to a new beauty salon owned by a friend's friend.  I had to drive home because my belly bothered me. I believe I had too much of that yummy red bean soup...

too much of good stuff can turn bad. indulging needs to be under control.

 there, i have two faces! when i look at husband's camera.
when i look at myself in the mirror 

i had a pair of booties on when i was out. they went much better with the outfit.  i did not want to bring dirt to our bedroom so i put on a pair of clean shoes for the photo. The top is M Missoni with attached scarf. Ferragamo clutch.

A Raining Day Outfit

Yesterday I decided I need a garment rack - like those at the fashion show back stage. I will put together a outfit and hang them on this rack when my inspiration hits or when I see a cool outfit on fashion magazine.  it fits up to 15 outfits. So, next time, before i head out, i can just look at that rack and pick one of them!

It rained a lot today, we went out as we planned. I did not actually bring my new bag because of the rain. But the rest outfit seemed fine for a rainy day to run some errands and meet friend for lunch/chat.

Chanel Dark Beige GST

It's finally here!

without flash
it is brand new. hardware was protected well.

above shot with flash


Overall, it is perfectly shaped. under my detail-obsessed eyes, I got to say it is almost flawless... there is one single needle thread was not tight enough- i fixed it with my little helpers from my tool box very quickly. it seemed the bag went through a rough trip... both packaging box and Chanel box were quite beat up. but bag is fine - thank my SA for packing the bag well.

I am keeping it and will use it as often as I can.

Leather Skinny Cargo Pants

We are having a triple playdate today. After a big Chinese food buffet, big boys went to shooting range; girls checked out each other's new stuff; little boys plays this and that.

 I took a couple of pictures of my new pants.

my friend got a distressed suede leather jacket yesterday...

Poncho in the Park

Spring played a peekaboo today. We did not miss it and enjoyed a sunny warm day at BC Park.  walking people, running kids, skaters on ice... a brand new playground in the park!

I gave some thoughts about what i would wear this morning when I having breakfast. and i remembered the TB wool poncho i bought around xmas...

Burberry Ballet Flat

It is pretty hard to keep fashion diary going for me lately. I have not worn any cool, fashionable outfit - this is the main reason. 

I bought a lot of make-up, skin care and beauty accessories this month. plus a pair of comfy mommy shoes. 

Today we went to the mall with a friend. I wore a modest outfit, red Hugo Boss Black label silk jersey top with chiffon ruffles,  houndstooth wool skirt, Wolford stocking...all the usual suspects.  I am pretty much molded into a specific style. I have hard time to get out of it unless i spend more time and effort to make some changes. is this one of signs of being older?

B had a wonderful playdate in his current girlfriend's house.

these are the ballet flat my friend got at Nordstrom today. As of myself?  I got a pair of cedar wood shoe trees for hubby. and some under garment for myself...
