OUTFIT DU JOUR - Plaids & Pearls

A girl's best friend is diamond; is her other best friend pearls?  I would think love for pearls started when I was just a little girl, playing with my mom's pearl necklace.  Now a mother myself, I've collected short pearl necklaces, long pearl necklaces, pearl earrings, pearl rings, faux pearls, you name it!

Don't get me wrong, I would not mind collecting diamonds as well...they just tend to be out of my budget range for collection items!!!

Closet Envy - Cameron Silver

How can anyone not be envious of Cameron Silver's closet?  After all, Silver, owner of Decades and co-owner of Decades Two.1, is responsible for making vintage a glamorous choice on the red carpet.  His treasure finds through yard sales, estate auctions and second hand stores are the creme de la creme of vintage designer pieces.  It is therefore expected that his personal closet to be a pandora box!

I'm just drooling over his Hermes crocodile collection of menswear and small leather goods...delicious!

SHOE PORN - Christian Louboutin Fall 2011

(Tootsie Booty)

(Tootsie Booty)




(Splash Fur)




Being a shoe lover (it sounds much healthier than shoe addict), I do share a passion for Christian Louboutin.  In fact, my first pair was 4 years ago when I decided to splurge on a $750 pair of embellished open toe satin pumps for my wedding!

Although I find the Tootsie Booty in ivory absolutely divine, I am curiously attracted to the Alex lion paw pumps!?!  Maybe because Ayden is a Leo?  I really don't know why or even if I would ever wear them!  However, one pair that I would buy and wear without hesitation is the Halte patent nude ankle strap sexy with cropped skinny jeans and a boyfriend silk blouse.

OUTFIT DU JOUR - Hey babe, you need a ride?

Forget about potty training; my son is far more interested in driving!  Just put him in the driver seat and he knows exactly what to do, where to look.  If I'm lucky, it might soon get a private chauffeur...but most likely, I'll just get an eager teenage driver borrowing my car every other day.

Men in colours

(Tommy Ton for

I like my men in colours!  Bold strong colours!  Not afraid to wear to reds, pinks and purples!  In the recently released collection of photos at the European menswear shows by fashion photographer and streetstyle blogger Tommy Ton, I found my best dressed men!

Out of Focus

Another series of self-portraits...but for some reasons (perhaps lack of photography skills), every single shot went out of focus.  Lucky me, I only noticed afterwards and it was already too late for re-take since my son woke up from his afternoon nap!  Well, why waste a few over-exposure but otherwise good photos?  I kinda like the effect anyways. 

The real question is: do you like my new waves?  Just got my haircut today!

SHOPPING - Intoxicate me

My newest drug: Mini Celine Luggage Tote in black!  I was told that my chances of getting the Phantom Luggage are slim to none.  If I was to pass on this one, I would possibly have to wait yet another season before getting my hands on a Celine tote.  So out goes my Amex and in comes my new addiction!  I must say, I really shouldn't consider myself as compromising since she's a real beauty.

I want waves!

I desperately need a new haircut!  It's been 3 months since my last appointment and it's now really outgrown.  Not to mention all the babyhair along my hairline that are now 2" long from post-pregnancy....ah, it's simply awful!  Actually, the babyhair kills it! The usual solution is lots of layers and a bang.  I've seen so many of my friends getting a bang  6 to 12 months post-baby...I now share their pain!

Anyways, I've never liked the idea of bands in summer time (humidity + hair stuck on my forehead = whiteheads).  So my solution is to center part my hair with long layers!  Ok, so not much different than what I have now, but since my hair was side parted during last haircut, it grew in consequence (have you not noticed all the bad-hair-day so wear-a-hat-solution days?).  I'll report to all of you after my trim, promised!  

As for now, let me go enjoy my McDonald's breakfast trio in a ponytail!!!

GIRL CRUSH - Clemence Poesy

Best known for her role in Harry Potter and Gossip Girl, I, however, first noticed Clemence Poesy from her numerous appearance at fashion weeks and magazine editorials.  So why do like I have crush on her?  Besides her obvious french charm and undeniable sensuality, she just seems so relatable (although I'm not an actress and I'm not french)!  Her simplicity and honest approach during interview just makes her all the more adorable.  Like one of those girls that you can't get angry at even though they just stole your boyfriend!  Ok, maybe I can find something not to like about Clemence if she stole my man!!!
