FIRST DAY OF FALL



It's the end of October and Fall has finally arrived in Texas. I am excited to wake up to beautiful weather and clear blue sky. And the most exciting thing is Fall/Winter wardrobe change. I like to start with accessories when the season changes to update my look. So it's time to put away your neon color bag and carry your best brown satchel like this one I recently purchase on Peonistyle which will go with many of my Fall look. This classic bag with gold tone zipper and hardware details are perfect match to my Fall color scheme Brown/Orange/Burgundy. And another favorite piece is my Cole Haan oxford shoes I recently score on ebay and they are so comfortable and stylish. These two are my new fave for the Fall and I will be wearing them A LOT!!

P.S : Peonistyle are offering a 10% off special for your first purchase, just enter NEWPEONI at check out. Happy bag shopping!!

SILK DRESS+SILK SCARF



A quick post before I am heading out to work, YES, it's been about 18 months since I last work and I am really excited. I enjoy being a stay home mom but also miss the real world, so going back to work part-time is the best for me and my little munchkin get to spend more time with his grandparents and the cats. First week is always the hardest when I have to adjust my bed time, get used to the working mode, and re-connect with people at work. Wish me luck!! By the way, going back to work means I may not post as often as I like to, but I will find a balance between work and blog post, and of course my baby boy comes first.

Todays' outfit is my favorite silk dress and silk scarf with my new addition member in my bag family!!

P.S : How about follow me on Instagram?! I think I can manage to snap a photo or two at work.

LOEWE X JUNYA WATANABE




Fashion is all about the unexpected and creativity. The Spanish luxury mega brand Loewe is known for its elegant and sophisticate leather goods, and Junya Watanabe is the master in underground punk with the unexpected cut and mix material. Together they present a capsule collection  Loewe x Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons to celebrate the 400 years of cultural exchange between Spain and Japan. What happens when the Spanish luxury leather mix with Japanese high-end denim? #LEATHERMEETSDENIM. An unexpected collection of plaid+denim+leather for some really cool boys and girls. 

P.S : The patchworked Amazona bag is for sure the coolest thing to update your Fall look.

TEE+JEANS AND SOMETHING EXTRA



I have to admit I am actually pretty lazy when it comes to dress up, so t-shirt and jeans are my two best friends. But sometimes they can look boring and dull, especially when the days you don't have make-up on and your hair looks like mine (the awkward length right above my shoulder which I hate, I need 5 inches of hair now...but how?!).

There is a solution to every problem. For the longest time I am scared to wear red lip, I think it makes my already thick lip looks bigger, it will stain my teeth, and it makes me look old. But I was so WRONG and I need to apologize to all the beautiful red lipsticks out there. I AM SO SORRY!!! Red lipstick is like a LBD to every women, it's a must have and will look great on everyone. Both red lipstick and LBD should be your go-to item when you can't find anything to wear (I bet you heard this scenario quite often, don't you?!) Many of my girlfriends has been a loyal fan to red lip and I finally bought my very first red lipstick last week. Here I am wearing MAC "M.A.C Red". A little red lip will save you from looking dull to looking like a doll.

P.S : Leopard print and red lipstick are a match made in heaven.

LIMSANITY





We have a LIMSANITY situation going on here!!! You heard how people say "I need a vacation after my vacation", I feel exactly the same after this madness Sunday. It's MADNESS!!! My normal relax Sunday turn into a battle field, on cyberspace and in Target. (And I know there are many boys and girls out there were much more crazier than I was ).

My master plan was to go to bed early and wake up at 12am to shop the collection online first, then sleep in couple more hours and hit the store around 7:30am with my coffee ( I don't have the patient to wait another week to get my bags and clothes). But things never happen according to plan, at least not this one. By the time my little munchkin finally falls asleep, it's almost time for the online battle to begin, so I stay up. But at which time zone of September 15th will the collection reveal online?!? I bet many Limsanity fans has the same question as I did. So I click the refresh button every 3 minutes on Target's website from 12am Texas time. An hour later, Nada. My anxiety begin and start hitting Twitter for help and thanks to so many sweet and kind fasionistas sharing valid links to others. For some reason I was able to purchase from shared target links way before on target.com. And many items was already out of stock when the target website was available on my screen. Luckily I got most of my wanted list and by the time I was done, it's 4 am. 

Of course I did not wake up until my girlfriend text me around 8:30am ask if I am in the store. I jump out of my bed and rush to my nearest Target store. No line, but not many bags left either. I ask the store associate, she said the rush was over. Looking at me like you people are crazy, did you get that look,too?! I grab the last mini satchel in yellow and taupe and guard them with my life. Now I have all 3 colors and I want to thank Mr. Phillip Lim to design such a cute and affordable bags for us. 


P.S : Another great news from London fashion week!!! London-based design house Peter Pilotto are teaming up with Target for the next designer collaboration. This collaboration feature women's apparel, accessories, and swimwear, will debut in store February 9th, 2014.

DIY : OH CHARLOTTE~





If you ask a guy (a straight guy) about this shoes, you are likely to hear : "Oh, it looks nice from the back and has fur, but what's up with the two holes? and they don't look comfortable." But if you ask me, I would say : "This is the ultimate 5" heels in luxe black suede and cheetah-print calf hair, beautiful finishes with the scalloped edge, and "the eye" are the soul to this masterpiece. Yes, it's killing my feet but no pain no gain, right".

This gorgeous Charlotte Olympia Venetia animal-print calf hair sandals are currently on sale for $492.75 (at 55%off, it still sounds like a lot of digits). You gotta be some serious art collector here to bring this baby home. Not only she will upgrade anything you wear instantly, also it's a quirky and unique piece to add to your shoe collection. But for now, I decide to have a little DIY with a pair of old Nine West and leopard print remnant I pick up at my local fabric store to save me a couple hundred bucks, I am excited!!!


Supply: A pair of old shoes, leopard print fabric, gold trim, wooden sticks, scissor, and E6000( use E6000 in a well ventilated area and wear a mask!!!)
Cut 2 small piece of fabric, put the E6000 on the surface and even it out with wooden stick, layer the fabric over and smooth the fabric. 

Trim the edge with scissor slowly and add more glue to the edge as needed. Time to decorate.
My heels are chewed up, so I cover them with the gold trim.
Glue the fabric on the back of the shoes and trim them evenly.

Instead of the cut-out eyes, I cut 4 little almond-shape faux-leather and glue the blue rhinestone on top. 







Tada, here is my Charlotte Olympia inspired DIY, now I gotta go find something to wear with it.

NEW CLUTCH, OLD FRIEND





Feeling overwhelmed by the chaos of NYFW?Cause I am. So let's take a break from the madness. Imagine if one day I live in the city, let's say New York, my 7am coffee run will require me to bring a few things with me. First and foremost, a magazine. Whether it's Vogue or Bloomberg Businessweek, you gotta have some reading material on your table. No one really cares if you are reading or not, but you gotta have it. And it's your phone, honestly I'd rather leave this one at home so I can enjoy a quiet morning, but I know most people can't part with their phone even going to restroom (me,too!!!). Sunglasses is a must, without it you look like a walking zombie at 7am, but with the right shade covers your weary eyes, everyone can look like a million bucks!!

And the rest of the stuff are not as important to you but my life depend on them. My lip balm and lipstick( in case Ryan Gosling are sitting next to me, you never know!! ). And a few bandages ( in case I get that ouch paper cut). All of my daily essentials fits into my DIY studded mesh clutch.  And life gets easier when everything you need fits in a small package. Yay!!

P.S : I don't live in the city, so my morning cup of joy usually happens in my kitchen with my 16 months old.
