Pony fur Givenchy

I agree that you don’t have to have expensive designer clothing to look fabulous!!. If you have time for searching, know how to choose a great piece of a cheaper line, pairing a right piece of jewelry and a pair of fabulous shoes, you can make yourself look fabulous anytime. And if you can afford expensive designer pieces, why not go for it? As long as you’re smart about what you buy, wait for the sale and watch your spending, set your goals. And most importantly, know your pocket and don’t go broke. It’s nice to mix low and high designers.
The other day, my big girl went to her friend’s birthday party. There were over 25 kids at the party, and each kid got $20 dollars to build a bear for the party favor goodies. I said “Wow, that’s a lot to spend $20 for 25 kids, how generous!”, my big girl asked me ” Are they rich?”. I answered ” Mommy doesn’t know, they maybe rich or maybe just generous”. “Are we rich?, mommy” she asked. And I told her that if you look up, there are many many more people who are richer than us, if you look down there are many many people who are poorer than us. So we’re thankful for what we have, except it and be happy with what we have, and my girl happily smiled. To me, this is positive thinking for everyone to apply into every angle of our life. I believe life depends on you, you’re the one to set your goals, to decide the right direction that you should go…but in life sometimes, there are somethings to leave to faith. Your destiny. I feel that I am lucky to have what I have, and I like to share with you in this blog as my journal. Thank you to my husband for everything, taking care of the family and for taking these pictures!
Pony fur Givenchy shoes, recently bought from final sale at Barney’s.
I wore F21 black tank and shorts.

Melissa Joy Manning tiger claw pendant necklace and The Woods moon pendant necklace. I wore F21 yellow mini dress, crocodile Prada clutch.

Thank you everyone for entering the Giving Away Gift and thank you to you all for visiting my blog. I’ve also noticed that many of you have been following my blog for a long time and you left comments for the first time. I truly appreciate your time. Until today, I didn’t know how to check and see how many visitors visited my blog. If someone out there knows how, teach me how, please. Amee-She Plays Dress Up, taught me once through Freeonlineusers.com, but for some reason it doesn’t work for me. I hope you all have a fabulous day!!! Hugs… Hanh ;-)

  1. That was a great thing that the mom said to the little girl in the toy store. I love the shoes Hanh, they bring out the rest of the outfit(s) very nicely

  2. This is my first time leaving a comment on your blog. However, I have been following your's and Nini's blog for a long time. Has anyone told you that you look like the 60's French singing Vietnamese singer Tiny Yong? That's her French alias, her Vietnamese name is Thien Huong. She sings beautiful French songs, there's not a lot of her music/videos on the web.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDLwVc65YRk&feature=related

    That's one of her videos. If you like to hear most of her music, you can contact me!

  3. whoa you do look like that girl in the video above!

    anyway great smart words to your girl!

    also, you rock that yellow f21 dress like a million bucks and your legs are so nice!

  4. Love the shoes, adore the yellow dress (I wish I could have it, it's just beautiful, beautiful, beautiful) and the whole outfit. Always wanted to ask who takes your photos, because they look really good.

  5. What a wonderful sandals! Whoau. I think that are the shoes more beaituful that I have seen on you. Por cierto, preciosas las cosas que cuentas de tu hija, debes ser una persona maravillosa, se nota en la sensibilidad de las palabras que escribes. :-) Kiss

  6. hi hanh, thanks for leaving a comment on my wedding post, on my blog, it really made my day!! :) the shoes are beautiful!! :)

  7. "And if you can afford expensive designer pieces, why not go for it?" aaaaah what a great truth!! I hate people who criticize someone just because he can spend money…, if you can… why not? and I also agree with the fact that you can be rich or not, but if you watch around you, you could see that there are richer people, but also poorer one's!

    I do the same with the health! sometimes we're worried about gaining weight or having cellulite… what a stupid thoughts, when you see people who can't walk or don't have legs/harms, or that are blind, ad they're happy anyway!

    said that, love your outfit! this shoes are fab and very difficult to match in a good and chic way. but you strike it! great!!

  8. hahn, that's so humble of you to tell the daughter. you are such a nice person. i knew that from the start. love your new shoes! you always pick the nicest shoes. what size are you again? lol

  9. I have a daugter just one year old but when the time come I think I will use your smart answer for my little girl:) Regards!

  10. Hi Hanh!! another fabulous post from you..=) loving those givenchy shoes! Your big girl is so cute asking that..=P

  11. Haha Hanh I hope it's not annoying you that I'm chopping my comments (for the contest =P).. Normally, I would have said this in one post.. hehe

  12. Another reason why I love this blog — you made an effort to lug all your shoes into your pool area and take beautiful pics..=)

  13. That's such a good philosophy that you taught to your daughter, youre a good mum !
    I LOVE your zebra printed shoes, they're stunning !! Love the different way you wear it, the colors are always perfect !
    You look so stunning and gorgeous on the fourth picture !!!

    hugs…

  14. It is a brilliant way to tell your daughter.Wow !Love your Givenchy heels! It is great that you wear a affordable brand m like F21 and pair them with designer items. I am not well-off and cannot afford any of the designer items, (except Chanel hahaha I have to save every penny for these ) but you have given me an eye opener and exposure to the luxury fashion world out there. !

    For the blog visitors, you have to register at another website. I 've forgotten the add of this website, probably you can google it?

  15. Lovely shoes and terrific outfit. I do find Givenchy shoes to be well worth their money and very comfortable (but edgy at the same time). It's funny, I used to ask my dad the same question your little girl asked you and he gave a very similar answer. It's important to appreciate what you have and be thankful, but also to give back to others. I'm glad you and your husband are so involved in charities, because it's so easy to get caught up in material things.

    By the way, finally posted the Rick Owens thing, so thanks again for your pic! :)

    P.S. if you still need help finding out how to view the number of visitors, please let me know. I can send you a few links.

  16. I love the shoes, love the print. I especially love how you combine the simpler wardrobe with the exotic shoes. Clever!

  17. Amazing heels!

    And I can see the amount of people visiting my blog through a google thing. I think you can log in on there with thesame account you have for this blog. I'm on another pc right now so I can't look it up but I will if I change computers :] (if someone didn't explain it more clearly by that time xD)

  18. Woooow Wooooow Woooow Astounding Hanh !!! I think that your black tights (and your sexy "pin up-esque" prestance) ideally sublimate the "Fetish Majesty" of your Givenchy fineries, the third picture your Roaring feline side, AND your words the altruistic idea of "enlightened Hedonism" . . .
    ps: Mmmh about the stats Actually I have created an account on http://www.histats.com, which is frankly interesting .
    re-ps: Ooooooh just in case I say you How to wear Jewellery on "stilettosteticoooooooo", Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes !!!
    Hope you're Well.

  19. the more i read you the more I am impressed by you. You're not only beautiful you're also a great mom with good values.

  20. God bless you.

    Your a wonderful person.

    Keep smiling, I wish you AND allyour family all the best.

    I love what you said o your daughter, it was the right thing to say and this is the time to inculcate such values in children… and when time goes on such values become invaluable :)

    She will one day, look back and unedrstand how precious these words were.

    Your setting a great example Hanh, for her and your readers :)

    Take care of yourself and always remain positive and strong.

  21. This post is beautiful, really inspiring. I'm so glad you taught your girl how to appreciate what she has. So many parents these days do not teach their kids and their kids grow up to be spoilt and snobbish. This was a wonderful post, i really like it.

    Btw your heels are fab! :)

  22. Happy friday,Hanh!

    Woow,you get more and more and more and more comments :)
    And this is another wonderful post you did!

    The way you described your children that´s important to appreciate what you have and giving back to others!

    And for your look:
    Your Givenchy fur heels with the bling bling details are 2die4!!!!

    Hugs& Kisses and enjoy the weekend with your family!!!
    Martina

  23. Those shoes give outfits some serious attitude! You look wonderful, and I love that yellow mini dress.
    And on top of everything you got them on final sale? You are, indeed, a lucky girl.

  24. I really love that yellow dress on you. The colour compliments your skin tone nicely. And I like how you paired it with the shoes but you kept the rest of your outfit very simple.

    All the best,
    Carrie

  25. Hanh, what is your email address? I clicked on the link but it doesn't seem to work for me. I have a wonderful site that I use for my blog to help me track visitors but I don't want to post the link publicly ;) You can leave a comment on my blog with your email address or you can email me directly, carrie.hoang@gmail.com

    All the best,

  26. Hi there Hanh! Those shoes are fabulous…I love animal prints! I like the way you paired it with that yellow mini dress.

    Great anecdote too about your kid's party!

  27. i like the way you answered your daughter's question.

    i love the yellow dress + zebra shoes together. your pictures are fantastic!!!

  28. oh wow, the first picture is very sexy :) . My favorite is the 3rd one. The Givenchy zebra look great!!!! They match w/ your Azzedine Alaia clutch. :)

  29. hi hanh!
    this is a very touchy story of you to share it with us.
    i agree with you, if you have enough money to buy designer pieces why not buy it?! one thing, i like about you is you're helping the charity. you're not a selfish person. we all know that you own expensive and high end things but you know how to share your blessings. huh! i hate people when they spend money and end up being broke. you're one good example, you're a smart shopper!

    i'm so impressed of your answers to your daughter.
    you're a very humble person.
    the more i visit your blog here, the more i'm in love with
    your attitude. you're a woman of character! i know from the start when you and nini have a blog, i felt the first time that you're truly a real and a person with a good heart.

    life is a matter of choice. we're the ones whom we wanted to be and what we wanted to happen .we're the director of our lives. being a mom, i chose to have only one child because i want that mr. freddy will have a good future and give him everything the best that life has to offer. i agree with you too, there are things no matter how we put efforts into it but it doesn't happen. I believe in a saying,"When there is nothing left but God, that is when you find out that God is all you need."

    mr. freddy is having his first bday party tomorrow. i know. we're not rich but being a parent, i want to throw him a very nice and successful party. he will not know and remember his 1st bday party but it's something that he will treasure it someday.

    hanh, the 1st photo is so sexy! i love the ideas of your husband
    in photography. wow! those shoes are very precious! if you don't mind, what lipstick did you use? i love how it complements with your shorts!

    p.s. thanks so much, hanh! sure, you're very welcome to visit us.
    i'm looking forward to meet you and your family.

  31. Hanh, i love watching your blog, couse i just adore you! You are such a kind, worm, wonderful woman. Your outlook on life, on family, other people,.. is full of care, addicion and humility beside joy, making your dreams come true with brave and delight.
    For me, your other name is joie de vivre!

    about your outfit – shoes are fantastic
    the first and third photos are amazing! all your pics are beautiful, but those ones are special.

  32. Every post is like a magazine spread, I swear!!

    I love what you said to your daughter, because it's so true.

    Thanks for being so inspiring!!

    -Christine

  33. Great answer, Hanh. I try to remind myself that I am very lucky whenever I want to complain about my life. But you're right. Your children are so blessed to have you as their mother.

    Now the pony hair Givenchys are amazing. I really love that yellow dress with them–the color is so cheerful. I always get impatient when I'm at F21 so I can't seem to find the gems you do. (Well I don't know about you but the one near me is always a madhouse.)

  34. I love your response to your daughter's question! I also just wanted to mention that one of the things I love about your blog is that it allows me to live vicariously through your style! For me, in my profession it's nearly impossible to ever dress up so it's fun to see other people's blogs and the amazing pieces they get to wear!

  35. another wonderful post! those shoes are very different from the usual studded heels.
    there are a lot of stats website you can find via google-which you can check by pasting your URL. this one is good: http://www.statbrain.com/www.brainstats.com/

    but it gives you daily counts, im not sure abt its accuracy

    Have a great weekend!
    Diane fr Aust (its currently Saturday morning here!!!)

  36. Love the first set of photos. Your lip color really complements the shorts.

    And great explanation to your daughter. The most important thing is to be grateful for what you have!

  37. What a great lesson to teach your daughter! That's a very good outlook to have on life, and also a good way to always appreciate what you have! Also, your shoes are fabulous!

  38. Chi Hanh, dep wa! =]

    That's a very good answer for a child to hear. That's exactly how I feel about my life too. In life, there's always going to be someone better, prettier, richer, skinnier, etc etc than you. But at the same time, one must feel fortunate that you are blessed with more than someone else. Lol, my mom always used to say to me too.

    You look beautiful, keep those posts coming!! Lol

  39. HI Hanh!
    Very well worded to your daughter! I think somethings are left to fate and whatever you get dealt you should be thankful for all the good that comes out of it.
    p.s.
    I absolutely love the yellow dress and pony shoes! by far my favorite outfit post ever! amazing combination!
    much love from Ireland xx
    magpie-girl.blogspot.com

  40. I adore you Hanh!! You make an amazing mom — in addition to your wildly awesome fashion sense, your generosity, patience and love for people and especially your family! I can relate to you so much and I can honestly say I look up to you. You're truly amazing.

    Love, Adeliet

    PS: I love those shoess!!!!!
    PPS: You make me want to get Givenchy!
    PPPS: You look sooo darn hot in them!

  41. dear Hanh, first of all, I am very impressed by your story!
    and those shoes… they are to die for! the second outfit is my favorite- hey, you have killer legs, girl! :) )
    have a lovely weekend, xoxo

  42. WOW those heels are incredible.
    those are ones that you have to make sure YOU are wearing them and theyre not wearing you . . . you definitely pulled that off. I especially like em with your peachy shorts!

  43. Aww your opening paragraph is so sweet. :) OKOKOK. I was reading vogue paris dec 08/09 last night, and saw those zebra givenchys and I thought to myself: "wow those are so cool! I wish I'd seen more of them during the s/s 09 season." And voila you get em! You styled em nicely, you'll do em service. :)

  44. Hanh – you look great! I think that zebra is the most underrated animal print…..it's so much more sophisticated and quirky than leopard!

  45. I love how you captured the stripes from the shadows in the tank and shorts images. the stripe shadows carry on the striped heels theme.

  46. life lessons aplenty on your blog. I adore them. i'm kinda nervous when it comes to raising my kids and i learn so much just by reading your blog.

    p.s. i love love love the shoes!

  47. you look very good. i like the yellow dress with those shoes.

    agree with you on looking fab and being contented.

  48. completely agree with your view on everyone's financial situation! it's nice to have nice things, but it's also nice to appreciate them and realize that there are people who are not so lucky, and some who are more lucky! just gotta be happy with what you've got, because at the end of the day, that's what really matters! your daughters are going to grow up to be lovely girls (they already are).

    those shorts are a really nice colour, hard to come by, i think! good find. so is that f21 yellow dress. such a cute neckline. and obviously, beautiful givenchy shoes!

  50. I love that first picture of you in the yellow dress – you look like a doll! Great shoes and what a great story to tell your daughter…

  51. youre a stunner, hanh! and it is great to hear your opinion on that matter, as well as your great explanation to your daughter:) youre a great role model!

    kiss.
    raez

  52. Hi Hahn! Thanks so much for you message! yes, we totally are some fashion mammas! you are the hottest of all! I truly love your inspirational words in this post. What you said made me go over to my hubby and plant a big kiss on him :-) Kick ass Givenchy's too! Can't wait to see what else you wear with them and I so look forward to see ing you visit my blog again!
    xoxo!
    Gisela

  53. love the pairing of inexpensive with the pricey items, fits the whole "many richer and many poorer" theme, intentional or not =)

  54. So, I was a few days off again – and what do I have to see when I came back, dear?!?!?

    S H O E P O R N at it's best!!!!!

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, your new Givenchy heels are soooo magnificent – they're so captivating! They're my new favorite shoes of your amazing and world famous shoe collection! What a wonderful addition to the shoe family!

    To answer your sweet daughter's question from the off: Yes, I think you are very, very rich :)
    And I'm not talking about material things here….
    The main things in life are love, health, happiness, friendship. Material things could only be an addition to it.

    I didn't answer your previous question why I love to visit your blog.

    More than your incredible sense for fashion and style , for travel and delicious food/restaurant advices, I love your blog, your window to the world, because of YOU, Hanh.

    You are the one who makes everything MORE special, MORE wonderful, MORE adorable, MORE desirable, MORE worthwhile, MORE fun, MORE captivating.

    At least I love to watch the lovely way you are inviting new people to your place, your fantastic blog. You're not just showing your items, your advices – you are SHARING them more than anyone else I know :)
    You are so very generous in every way.

    Ok…. that being said the case is obviously clear… this is a declaration of love.

    Yours always
    S.

  55. You gave your daughter a great response! Your shoes are amazzzing and I love that yellow dress on you! Looking great as always!

  56. I was away for the weekend and didn't check my fav blogs. this entry touched me so so much. you are a beautiful person.

  57. Hanh,

    The shot with your hair in your face left me speechless! This post is so very well done. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.
