I understand that everyone has their own style, taste and different sense for fashion. Maybe this outfit doesn’t look great to someone, but it looks super great to other people. I like to play with my clothing, take a risk of how I pair them and I have fun, enjoy doing it. Fashion is all about choices-the choice for our style with our own fashion sense. Also in life-our choice of manners, our attitude, and our words make us who we are. I appreciate your support and honest comment. We also have freedom of opinion with graceful or ungraceful words. Here and there, I received couple comments from anonymous with not-pretty words. I normally don’t moderate them and I don’t keep them in mind. Today, with my feeling, I feel like to share this with my graceful readers.
Last week, I went to see Scott Schuman-The Sartorialist, for his book signing when he was in Dallas. It was crowded but worth the wait. I have been learning many things from his book “It’s all about self-expression. I rarely shoot a look where I love all the elements. I don’t need to love the whole look: I just need to identify the one or two elements that mean something to me, and capture it in the romantic way I see it”……” Let’s just say it’s a positive and less judgemental way to look at the world”. In the first introduction he continues, “I hope that, as you look at the images…rather than giving a look a ‘thumbs up’ or a ‘thumbs down’, you will focus on the elements that could inspire you. Maybe you’ll find inspiration in a colour combination, or maybe in a play on textures or a mix of genres”
English is not my first language, as many of you already know, but hopefully what I write is pretty enough for you to understand. I don’t get to visit all the blogs as often as I used to, simply because I have a house full of family! My parents are here from Vietnam for 6 months, and I want to spend as much time with them as I can. And let’s don’t forget the two new puppies! They are a handful. Thank you all very much for reading my blog. I’ll do my best to keep you interested and coming back.
I had seen these Christian Louboutin booties on Barney’s website and have been thinking about them for weeks. I was not sure whether to get them or not, because it’s pricey. After I saw them again on JakandJik’s blog during Paris fashion week, I knew I had to have them for sure.
I’m not a big fan of animal prints, but lately I let myself add more animal print stuff into my closet. I have to say that I like it more and more. It gives you a fun, stylish, elegant look as long as you know how to mix it and keep it clean.
These pictures were taken on Sunday last week. We were ready for going to visit a relative.
We’ve had a chance to visit a couple of cities in Portugal. But, in the Halloween spirit, I invite you to go to Evora and visit St. Francis Church where you will find the Capela dos Ossos, or Bone Chapel.I remember exactly my feeling standing in the middle of Bone Chapel, looking around the walls, columns,and ceiling which are covered in human bones and skulls. It was creepy and scary. I got goosebumps and held my husband’s hand for the whole time. I felt sick after that. Sad!!!!The chapel was constructed back on the 16th century by Franciscan monks who wanted to remind men of their own mortality. No one knows who the bones belong to- apparently they were dug up from a local cemetery which was already old when the monks got to it with their shovels. The bones of about 5,000 people were used to make up the chapel. The chapel is not too far from the main plaza of Evora. These pictures do not do justice to the creepy feeling that I felt.
Hi my fabulous fellow readers,I hope you’re doing well. I’m excited to let you know that EVA NY in Manhattan, 355 Bowery, has launched online store http://www.evanewyork.net/ and their blog past this month. Thank you EVA team for offering 15% off discount for lifeintravel readers. They especially have programmed a discount code for us at the check out and it will discount the purchase, and the code is lifeintravel. They’re also interested in offering a 20% discount code ” evany” for associates of EVA. They have a great selection of labels that I hope you visit their site. Hopefully, you like it and support the store as much as I do!! I’m also excited it’s fall…I can wear my leather jacket, sweater, scarf, gloves, boots…I wore Alexander Wang knit vest, my new F21 tank and knit scarf…love love this scarf, the Row legging, Proenza boots and my long gloves from last year.
I have to say that kids recover very fast from their sickness. After three days of flu, my kids already feel much better and they wanted to get out the house for ice-cream. So, I took them and my parents to NorthPark Mall for lunch, ice-cream and play. We had a great happy time, and I love to see that. I want them to be happy. Sweet!!!
This Comme des Garcons collar is one of my favorite piece in my closet. It’s versatile that I can pair it with any outfit. It magically made a boring outfit become a interesting, character and fashion forward outfit. Love it!!!I wore it with F21 skirt(love its color), my new F21 tank, my long gloves from last year, Fallon necklace and Nicholas Kirkwood heels.
The tuck-in is one of hot trends that everyone can wear. This style is great for day or evening. It’s also give you a edgy, whisper sport-chic. Great trousers and fabulous over-ankle length or calf-length boots will do the look. For more extreme, you should go for this season thigh-high boots to get the inspiration look of Isabel Marant F09 as I posted it in the past post(lick here to see). In this post, I wore Balenciaga jacket, F21 tank top, Mayle trousers, Lezilla boots, Lanvin bag and The Wood bracelets. Thank you to you all for sweet comments.
Wishing everyone a wonderful day!!!! big hugs…Hanh!!!
Pinkalicious. This title was named by my 6 year old girl. When she saw me wearing this outfit for dining out with my family she said “Mommy, I love your sweater and your lip stick color. It’s pinkalicious!”
The sweater is Yohji Yamamoto. This is my first time wearing over knee boots with shorts. Well after all, it’s too young a look for me. I should have tights underneath the boots, but I had no time to take the boots off and put them on again.
My great nephew and my two sweet girls.
