  7. Hi Hanh,

    The garden is so beautiful and those beautiful lotus flowers are making me think of our country :-) Both of the outfits look beautiful on you. I love the yellow blouse. I think the brand is Tucker from Barneys? anyway :-) enjoy the rest of your trip and call or text me whenever you have a chance.

  11. Hi there-stunning pictures and you and the children look totally gorgeous, hope you all had a super time my dear!!

  12. I always like the way Chinese Gardens sound as an invite to contemplation/meditation, with the pantheist idea of a divine Nature . . .
    ps: You perfectly illustrate the "Urban feline" 's definition from my last "stilettostetico-esque" post Dear Hanh !!!

    i love the fact that you dress your children, like children; especially your girls. I think it's nice that you let them develop their own style and wear simple outfits so that they can do what kids do best, play!
