Another batch of new shoes from........

Salvatore Ferragamo!
It has been quite a while since I bought a pair of Ferragamo shoes. The last pair I bought was way back in 2006 when I was in Milan. Ferragamo shoes had been my work shoes ever since I started to work. Yup, they are boring, but they are formal and comfortable enough for work, that's why I bought them. So where are all my Ferragamo shoes now? Haha.....all gone after I gave birth as they don't fit anymore because my feet are now 1.5 sizes bigger than before I gave birth. So, I gave them all to my cousins.

Recently, I visited Ferragamo boutique again supposedly to buy a tie (turtle tie for my husband) and a pair of cufflinks. But instead, I brought home these shoes! LOL!! Women can never stay "focused" when it comes to shopping. We always get "carried away"....hehe!

I have been wanting a pair of Varina flats since this style was first released a few years back. I finally pulled the trigger and got myself 2 shocking colors. I love these patents leathers! Yummy yummy!

1st Pair: Fuchsia/Candy pink patent "Varina" flats with gunmetal hw
(got them on sale here in Hong Kong Ferragamo boutique)

Quick modeling pictures....

2nd Pair: Coral/orange patent "Varina" flats with silver hw
( US$157.90 from Saks!!!! How cheap can that be??!! This color was released in 2008 and the one this pair I got is the last pair and only size (my size, Yay!!!) left in the company. I was lucky to get them at such a bargain "unbelievable" price. It feels like Cinderella..LOL!)

Quick modeling pictures....

3rd Pair: Metallic "blush"/champagne "Ribes2" open toe pumps with kitten heels
(got them on sale here in Hong Kong Ferragamo boutique. I love this special champagne color because it's not always easy to find such color. )

It looks more lavendar/gray in these pictures, but in real life, it's more pinkish)

Quick modeling pictures..

4th Pair: Nude with brush effect "Mia" open-toe pumps with wooden heels (US$344.90 on sale from Nordstrom)

Love the blackish brush effect on the nude leather....

And I'm loving this wooden heel (I am in love with all sorts of wooden heels...hehe..don't know why. :P)

Quick modeling picture....

I really love the silhouette of these pumps

5th Pair: Taupe "Metz" peeptoe pumps with wooden platform and special "cage" heels (got them on sale here in Hong Kong Ferragamo boutique)

I love this special designed heels with the "cage" effect!

Not to mention the black jewel in the middle of the front it!

And finally, the group picture of my new Ferragamo family!

That's all folks! Hope you like them!

Which "Heart" to choose?

I am the typical girl who likes things with hearts, bows/ribbons and ruffles. So, whenever Chanel releases accessories with hearts or bows, I'm all over it.

These 3 necklaces from the Fall/Winter 2009 (Act 1) collection is no exception. This collection is called "Sublime Hearts". The heart shapes in this collection are all with different designs.

I "must" buy 1 from this collection. So which one will it be? Which one will you vote for?

This one is a choker with black beads and white pearls, with a heart-shaped pendant made up of 3 CC logos (Price: US$990)

This one is a 16-inch necklace with a little small pearl in the middle of the strand. The heart-shaped pendant design is more complicated than the 1st one and a bit bigger. (US$1,080)

This last one is the most expensive one. It's a very long necklace with black beads and white pearls and the heart pendant is the most complicated among these 3. From my experience, I think the price of this one will be around US$1800 to US$2000.

Well, since I've already bought a very expensive piece of costume jewelery from Chanel Prefall collection (which is almost the same price as a Chanel 2.55 flap bag and the only most expensive piece of Chanel costume jewelery I own), I plan to buy a less expensive piece from this collection. So, I won't choose the 3rd complicated long necklace one above. Which one will it be among the first 2 then? Hehehe.....I am really hopeless when it comes to Chanel. :P

See my new Lanvin's!!!

I have been in love with the brand Lanvin for quite some time. I think Alber Elbaz is a genius. His RTWs are to die for!! Duchesse satin, cocktail-length frocks (often with one shoulder), dressed-up cigarette pants, and volume experimentation are his signatures.

Well, I am not ready to splurge on the RTWs yet, so I am starting with shoes. Haha...."Start Small, Think Big!" I might be buying a Happy Sac from Lanvin if I find the right leather/color for me, and of course, Lanvin's costume jeweleries too! I love all their chunky necklace design! And Lanvin has those lovely limited edition porcelain dolls which I'd love to collect as well.

So, here are my new shoes from Lanvin. I am loving them because they are so comfortable for everyday wear!!

Chanel tweed jackets from Cruise 2010!!

I have too many Chanel bags, costume jeweleries and shoes already. So, I think it's time to explore the world of Chanel RTW. Chanel tweed jackets are so classic and I think investing in them is a wise choice. Of course, if you score them during the sale season, even better!

I'm done with Chanel Paris-Moscou stuff already, and waiting for my Fall stuff to hit the stores. So, I'm looking into the Cruise 2010 fashion show! Love Venice!! It's one of my favorite places! My wedding (both ceremony and banquet) in 2006 was suppose to be in Lido, Venice. That was our first choice. But the wedding planner said that the venue was full already. So, we went for plan B instead which was wedding ceremony and banquet in Switzerland. And we took our wedding photos in Rome Italy instead.

OK....back to Chanel. So, I was browsing the fashion show, and these 3 tweed jackets caught my eye.

I esp. like this 1st one because of the rich colors and I can already imagine wearing it with jeans and kind of thing. It's perfect for casual chic.

This jacket is classic, except that it's in a bright red color. Well, if it's in black/white or navy or grayish color, or even burgundy/magenta color, I will definitely love it. Hope it comes in a different color.

This one is more tailored, and I am thinking that the standing collar is cool! Ooh...don't you just love that statement necklace?!!! Umm, no bra tops for moi.

What do you think? If you have to choose one, which will it be?

Mason and his swimsuit parade....

I was looking at some of the recent and old pics of Mason, and I find these cute pictures where he's wearing his "swim suit". From a baby to a toddler....time flies!

This was taken when he's 7 months old.....preparing for his first swimming class. It's so much easier to take his pictures when he's younger. He was really chubby when he's a baby. We bring him to a nutritionist to "control" his diet because from his monthly check-ups, he's already way up exceeding the 100% line. LOL! Good that he's not that chubby now.

Now that Mason can run around, he just won't stand/sit still to let you take pictures. I had a hard time taking these pics.....phew!!
