Simple stripe




Stripe sweater: Club Monaco
Jacket: Burberry 
Jeans: J Brand
Shoes: Coach
Bag: Tods

Striped everything is definitely a trend and I love this understated and classy trend.  When I saw this Club Monaco sweater, I am instantly attracted by its softness and the bottom design which gives you an immediate slim look around the waist.  I hope you had a good weekend and rejuvenated.

Kenneth Cole Event San Francisco


Dress: Red Valentino
Jacket: Burberry
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik
Bag: Balenciaga
Necklace/Bangle: David Yurman

 This week I went to an after-hour reception at Kenneth Cole store in downtown San Francisco created for fashionista in the city.  I went there to mainly meet and say hello to one of my favorite bloggers Anh from 9to5chic, who co-hosted this event.  She is gorgeous and her sense for style is amazing.  If you remember the Bottega Veneta bootie I wore in this posting, it was definitely a purchase decision influenced by Anh who has an identical pair. I enjoyed chatting with Anh and her husband.  The night was completed with guided shopping, champagne, hors D' oeuvre and Benefit makeover.  I had a wonderful time that night.

Rainbow shirt (weekend)



 
Biker Jacket: Burberry Prorsum 
Leather pants and Linen tri-color Top: from Taobao.com 
Bag: YSL
Shoes: Nine West
Necklace and earrings: Hermes

I am obviously gravitated toward lots of colors lately.  The center piece of my outfit today is this lovely tri-color swing top I found on Taobao.com.  It is made of beautiful linen fabric.  I love how the top moves when I move around.  I found this leather pants from the same seller.  Taobao is similiar to eBay, except it is an online consumer market in China.  As the sellers do not ship to the US, I often ask my friends in China to buy the ones I like.  I will get them when I travel to China (often for business) or when my friend visits the U.S.  I regret I did not photograph this top without the leather jacket.  The top is sleeveless. I hope to find another opportunity to show the entire top.

Recent find

Zara is doing a good job keeping up with the latest trend and offering amazing pieces at affordable price.  This tweed jacket is no exception.  From its delicate silk lining to cute gold button, this jacket is a must buy.  I would be thrilled if they also have a black version.  The three quarter sleeve, the fringe, a great substitute to classic Chanel fantasy tweed jacket.  One note, this jacket runs small.  I ordered online and had to exchange for one that is one size larger.

Resort style

 
Silk shirt: from Shanghai
Shorts: Siwy
Shoes: Nine West
Bag: Coach 
Belt: Tods
Hat: BCBG
Puppy: Roger the snow ball 

This outfit is a reflection of how I feel right now: completely relaxed after tax preparation work is finally done.  To contrast the flowery shirt, I used beige tone accessories that include bag, shoes, belt and hat in straw and leather. I hope you are having a wonderful easy breezy weekend as well!

Melon dress

 
 
 
 
 
Dress:All Saints
Bag: Balenciaga 
Shoes: Mossimo for Target
Bracelets: Hermes & Tiffany
Necklace: from Mexico
Inspired by vibrant colors in fashion this season, I decide to wear this All Saints dress when we went out for an afternoon tea/desert tasting after my son's T Ball game and egg hunt community event.  I love the material of this dress, which is called "Japanese silk."  All Saints makes amazing clothing and accessories at affordable price.  I highly recommend its store in Union Square in downtown San Francisco if you are in the bay area.  I paired the dress with another great find, Mossimo for Target pumps.  The Melon and nude color are perfect color for the dress.  I got these pumps for less than $30 at Target.  I hope you are having a good weekend so far.  Happy Easter to you all!

Dots





Polka Dot shirt: from Taobao.com
Trench: Burberry London 
Jeans: Siwy
Boots: Gucci
Necklace & Bracelets: David Yurman   
Bag: Jimmy Choo

Hope you are having a good Thursday so far.  These pictures were actually taken last week.  But as I headed to Florida for a vacation + business trip before last weekend, I didn't upload them until now.  I had this polka dot shirt that I bought on Taobao.com (equivalent of eBay + ASOS in China) half year ago.  It is actually quite cute with elastic banded puff sleeve.  But I never wore it in the past, maybe because I wasn't sure if polka dot is for me.  I am glad I pulled it out from the closet finally.  I hope you like the ensemble.  Can't you believe Friday is just around the corner!  :-)
