Taking my kids to gymnastics. I wore Hollisters Co pants, Madewell tee. Do you remember Nastia Luikin who won an Olympic gold metal in Bejing? That’s her. Well, my kids do gymnastics at a small local gym. We went to WOGA for one hour training with her. This is a cool thing to do for my kids. When they grow up and look back and say “Thanks mom and dad. That’s cool”.
How long does it take to make your shoe collection? Will you collect the same volume each season and in the future?
It took years to collect my shoe collection. I started slowly at first. But the last year and this year, it has been speed up. My husband said “I deserve to expand my collection after nine years of being a good wife, good mother” and he supports me. I earned the credit, you know. I will probably slow down next season and in the future. But who knows, sometimes they are like vanilla ice-cream with chocolate chip and Oreo cookies. Most of them I waited for on sale. I did not have shoes collection when I was in high school or college. I love fashion whole my life but back then my parents are very conservative about education. All I did to show them I was good student with A+ and I attended two universities. I had no time for anything else except studying. When I moved here, I attended college again, and had a full time job. It was hard because I had to begin everything from zero. I remember the time I visited a high-end fashion store when I received my tax refund. My husband is a wonderful man who understands my passion for fashion and support me.
The secret to keep you slim since you have two kids?

These pictures took last night. The family went out for Italian Food. My kids refused to have pictures taking, they weren’t in good move for picture. I wore Fallon necklace, Alexander Wang tank (I wear this tank and Helmut Lang tank a lot, love their versatile), Marni skirt that I bought sometime long ago for $100 from original price over $1000 at 4510 store, Marni shoes also bought long time ago from last call at Neiman Marcus for about $250.
Wish everyone have a wonderful weekend!!!!xoxo…Hanh.

The sculpture in this photo was taken on my Paris trip at Palais Royal, near the Rick Owens store. I took this because it ‘s unusual and beautiful. When I got back home, my husband looked through the Architectural Digest Magazine’s May 2008 issue and saw this sculpture in there. We were both in awe… and that’s when we learned it is the work of artist Jean-Michel Othoniel. He is a contemporary French artist born in 1964 in Saint Etienne (France).
When I was in Paris, I had a chance to go to Maison de la Truffe for truffle tasting. We watched the show called Bizarre Foods on Travel channel before Paris trip. That’s how we knew about this restaurant. If you like truffle, this is a place to go. They have excellent truffle menu and the food is delicious with powerful fresh summer truffle aroma. This time of the year is off winter truffle season, but it still tastes fresh here because their expert truffle cellar to store its fresh. We love truffle and we had a great lunch there.

These are my latest additions into my shoe collection and my first time to wear them. I saw these shoes in the blog world sometime ago and fell in love with them at first sight. I didn’t think I would have a chance to own them someday. Then, I saw these at the Balmain store with a nice discount and free tax and I thought “this is my chance!” These could be worn year round and they are versatile. Here they are:

I did not plan to buy these Givenchy shoes because I already had them in black. Since these pairs transfered from Barney’s in NY to Dallas and they had only one pair in my size. These were also on sale for 40% off. Nini convinced me that I should have them. They are gorgeous! What could I say? So, I did it …Now, my black pairs have a sister in nude.
