Who's She...

Something New

We've been working day and night trying to get the store up and running with brand new inventories. A mini preview of what's in "store"...

Super unique Marc Jacobs inspired mini plaid dress with batwing sleeves, and stand collars!

This offwhite SUPER SOFT zip front vest is so adorable and warm...ahhh...did I mention that it's SUPER SOFT?

I'm obsessed with these two tone, double layer tunics, comes in many colors!

Inspired by Marc

Inspired by Marc by Marc Jacobs' 2008 RTW, I threw on this tartan dress on Sunday to channel some of that MJ's winter punk-chicness.

New Burberry

No matter what other says about Burberry's 2009 campaign, I'm enjoying every bit of its English countryside not-a-single-care-in-world vibe. Christopher Bailey and Mario Testino's cooperation has turned into some truely gorgous photos. What do you think?

Have you ever gone through a gift-shopping dry spell? I was trying to get some Christmas shopping out of the way over the weekend, for one reason or another, I found exactly nothing for everyone on my list. Sigh...more trips to the mall in the upcoming weeks. Although the gift fairy took the weekend off, I was able to snatch a few crazy vintage pieces, which include a wine colored anorak jacket, a mink stole and an absolutely insane looking knit top!

Preview Pics

My store is getting a face lift, literally!
A brand new gorgeous model, a ton of new ultra cool inventories! Everything will be up in the next few days. Here are a few preview pictures.

Finally, four days of binge cooking/eating/drinking has came to an end. I’m slightly or rather very much depressed by the fact that there’s no more left over from the Turkey day for me to snack on, and that I’m back in the Bay area, again. It’s not that I don’t love my life here, its just that my life seems to be slightly more complete in SD...

We made a quick stop in LA on Sat to visit my BFF, and to check out some of the new openings on Robertson Ave. The new Chanel store is hands down the most beautiful of them all. I’m not just talking about the interior space, its outdoor lounge area can easily be mistaken for a spa retreat. Enough drooling, going back to my bff, she was like a flower child gone rock and roll, super cool mocha colored leather biker jacket with crytal/metal chain link head band and a pair of ultra tall over the knee flat boots. All I can say is “BRAVO”! Will try to show a pic of her later.
In the mean time, I'll share a few of my creations over the Turkey day!

THAT 6lb deep dish apple pie is THE-COMMA-INDUCER...

Stuffing Turkey Roll is possibly the tastest turkey I've ever had...

Velcros Madness

I finally gave in and got the Givenchy-Wanna-Be Aldo open toe booties on black Friday, after putting them in and out of my online shopping cart for a good half of a dozen times over the past two weeks.
KK was not at all impressed with the Velcro closures on the babies, but I’m so madly in love with them that I just couldn’t walk out of the store empty handed.
