2010: a year to remember...

(Anna della Russo at the Vogue Paris 90th Anniversary Party)

If I had a fabulous New Year Eve party to attend, this is how I would be to dressed.  Unfortunately, this year, it's just Ayden, Coco (my cat), my hubby (if he gets back from work by midnight) and myself... so let's just say I have lots of time to reflect on the past year!

Looking back, here are the top 10 events that made my 2010 so memorable:

10. PPTV
9. my surprise xmas gift from hubby
8. landing an awsome job at Athena
7. blogging
6. starting a new business project
5. shopping for my "new" figure
4. re-bonding with my best friend/business partner Weylan
3. my best friend Vicky's wedding
2. my first ultrasound
1. Ayden's birth

FLASHBACK: Balenciaga F/W 04

A recent post of the above fabulous Balenciaga Aviator boots by Jack & Jill reminds me of how much I was in love with Balenciaga's Fall/Winter 2004 collection.  When it's done right, it transcends time.  And Balenciaga is almost always done very right!

I got the Lanvin + H&M "legs" t-shirt for christmas from a very good friend!!!  So excited to wear it to my hubby's belated staff party today.  Tried to toughen the whole look with my Doc's and leather/chain belt.

MAIN EVENT - Holidays 2010

Although the holiday season is not nearly over (we tend to extend our indulgence of food, wine & chocolate until Chinese New Year), I just wanted to share a few snapshot of my baby's first christmas.  And naturally, most of the gifts under our tree are for him...

Christmas day...the brightest star

(Harry Winston Earrings)

It's already Christmas day and I save the best for today: Harry Winston diamond earrings!!  Any girl worth her diamonds should have these on her wishlist!  And I'm no exception! 

Happy Holidays to everyone!!!

Christmas eve...

(Loree Rodkin Armor Knuckle Ring)

If you are as obsessed about knuckle rings as I am AND have a sky-high budget, this baby is probably already in your jewelry box.  Covering the entire finger, this is the mothership of all knuckle rings! 

Loree Rodkin makes exceptional medival inspired fine jewelry, and although I would gladly accept anything from her collection, this is the one that first caught my eye.

Was out shopping all day for last minute preparation for our holiday family dinners (we are hosting my family tomorrow and my hubby's the day after!).  I'm so tempted to just cater everything but instead have decided to make the effort to bake some espresso and banana/chocolate mini-cakes...if anything, it will at least make the house smell good!  Everything else will most likely be ready-to-serve dishes from Costco...

Fur vest (parka not in picture) - D&G; Blouse - BCBG; Pants - H&M; Bag - Chanel; Earrings - Chanel

3 days till Christmas...

(Cartier Panther Ring)

I usually cannot justify trendy/fashion pieces in fine jewelry...but this is Cartier!  And since my son is born in the year of tiger, it should be justifiable!!  (ok, that was just a big excuse)

4 days till Christmas...

(Hermes Silver Collier de Chien)

Do I need to explain myself?


Topshop's highly coveted collection is now available in Montreal!!!  Yes, now as in starting TODAY!   SSENSE's two-storey Old Montreal location will feature Topshop/Topman alongside with all the designer brands that they is best known for. 

Anyone available for a shopping date with me?

GIRL CRUSH - Caroline Blomst

Caroline Blomst from Carolines Mode has been my style inspiration for a very long time...this Stockholm streetstyle/fashion blogger mastered perfectly the girl meets boy look that I love.  I can't stop lusting over her collection of leather jackets and fur coats.  Always edgy, always in neutrals and very often with a large coffee in hand.

5 days till Christmas...

(Domenic Jones Claw Ring)

This is a don't-mess-with-me-or-I'll-f*#%ing-bust-your-face ring.  I like it.

OUTFIT DU JOUR - From his closet

Just came back from my hubby's birthday dinner wearing a chunky sweater from my hubby's closet.  I was actually looking for a men's oversized knit of my own (yes, I often shop in men's dept) but cannot find it and thought "oh well, this should do the same"...except the sleeves look ridiculously long on me...

Sweater - Club Monaco for men; Shirt - Abercrombie & Fitch; Leather Shorts; Twenty8Twelve; Purse - Hermes; Shoes - Zara

6 days till Christmas...

(Hermes Rose de Mer Pendant)

This picture does not do justice, it's 1000X more beautiful in person.  Hermes makes the shiniest and heaviest silver jewelry and this piece has its weight.  The knot reminds me of the Chinese Lucky Knot we have during Chinese New Year...makes me feel like it would bring luck when wearing it.  :)

7 days till Christmas...

(Chanel Paris Shanghai Dynasty Brooch)

I have been wanting this sooo badly, I almost got all my friends involved in the hunt!  None of the Chanel boutiques in Canada ordered it so it was an international search of my brooch....and sadly, it was not meant to be.

Saturday, December 18, 2010


I am losing my mind!!!  My fear finally became reality about a month ago when I started to shed like there's no tomorrow!  My friends warned me; postpartum 3-4 months and you will loose all the hair you haven't been loosing during the whole pregnancy at once!  Knowing it and seeing it is a whole different story...I really dont want to end up bald...I mean, my hair is my ONLY feature...I don't have long lean legs, bouncy round behind (not anymore at least), perky full bust, wide flurtacious eyes, plumped pink only thing was my hair!!!  Now what do I do?!?  Help!

Ring - Kenneth Jay Lane

8 days till Christmas...

(Kenneth Jay Lane C Horn Necklace)

How this would look perfect with the upcoming resort season (beach, bikini, kaftan, straw hat, pina colada).  Humm...I can already feel the breeze...

9 days till Christmas...

(Made Her Think knuckle ring)

Another suggestion of shiny ornament that I would love to have on my Christmas tree.  Oh...I should mention that I'm a size 5 1/2 (6 is also ok if 5 1/2 is not available).

10 days till Christmas...10 shiny ornaments

(YSL Arty Ring)

There's only 10 days till Christmas day and we still don't have a tree yet...However, since we are hosting this year's family party, I am committed to have a beautiful tree full of lights and shiny ornaments (afterall, where would we unwrap our gifts?)  And of course, I wouldn't mind that some of these shiny ornaments to be somewhat functional after the holidays, like say, a piece of jewelry.

Here is therefore the 1st on my list of suggestions (hubby: hint hint)

The IN Crowd

I came upon these pictures from fashion media photographer, Alex So, today while browsing online.  This serie features China's new generation of fashion circle sporting an iconic Hermes scarf.  Love how they make the classic silk "CarrĂ©" look so cool and edgy, especially the guys!  I suddently feel so conservative looking back at how I wear my scarves...
