McQueen Skull for Halloween

Halloween is here, one of the more exciting holidays for children. But for adults, it depends. I didn’t enjoy it before, but my kids have inspired me to like it more and more. I actually love it now, and enjoy it as much as my kids do. I feel 35 years younger when I’m dressing up and going for trick or treat with them. Having fun with my kids, seeing them enjoy the holiday, and seeing their happy faces makes me smile.This year, I pull my outfit with a McQueen skull theme and I wanted this outfit looking cool, stylish, and right for the Halloween spirit but not too scary for my kids. It’s awesome to see my kids love it whenever I dress up for Halloween. They even suggest their ideas.

How about you? What do you wear for Halloween? Here is my oufit:
McQueen skull flats.
Love the tiny silver skulls in the back.McQueen skull print tank recently bought at boutique 4510, and I styled it with a Rick Owens jacket.Vintage skull necklace and the cross necklace from The Woods.Disce Mori earrings were purchased at Grange Hall last year.
McQueen skull ring paired with Pamela Love ring.
McQueen gold skull leather-belt-bracelet recently bought at the boutique 4510. Other bracelets ??My beloved McQueen clutch. This clutch is also my little girl’s favorite clutch. It was actually her choice and she inspired me to purchased it :)My clutch is my trick or treat bag for candy. It’s cool but way tooooo small..hehe… I can’t wait to go trick or treating with them and I’ll share our pictures tomorrow night on twitter :) Stay tuned for it!!

Omakase at Nobu Dallas

Let’s see what the press and celebrities have said about NOBU:
“The world’s hippest restaurant chain” – Vogue
“The world’s sexiest restaurant” – The Observer
“Best restaurant Period” – Time out New York
“The man who reinvented Japanese food” – Jean Georges Vangerichten
“You can tell how much fun a city is going to be if Nobu has restaurant in it”-Madonna
“….heaven on earth and sex on a plate” – Kate Winlest

NOBU currently has 25 restaurants in 21 different cities around the world. Nobu restaurants are named after the world reknown executive chef/owner Nobu Matsuhisa who has a longtime friendship and business relationship with famous actor Robert De Niro.

Nobu Dallas has became one of the hottest restaurants in the city since it opened. It is located in the Crescent Court hotel. Nobu offers a relaxed atmosphere, and permits casual clothing but your jeans better be designer if you’re going for a casual look :) The menu features Nobu’s signature new style Japanese cuisine as Yellowtail sashimi Jalapeno, Seared Toro with Karashi Sumiso, Toro Tartare with Caviar, Black Cod with Miso.

Nobu Dallas is one of our A list favorite restaurants. When it comes to dining at Nobu Dallas, we always have Omakase style at the sushi bar. We highly recommend to sitting with head sushi chef Mitsuhiro Eguchi who was a chef for Nobu NYC. He understands his food and cooks with his heart. I also want to credit executive chef Matt Raso who is behind the kitchen for hot dishes.
Although for us, it’s omakase style. We always request to start with Sea Urchin Shooter. It could be very addictive when you get it.

Matsutake Kettle Soup. Matsutake mushrooms are one of the many kinds of edible mushrooms that grow in Japan, and are said to be the king because of their wonderful aroma and elegant flavor. The pairing of this mushroom with a clear soup is a classic combination, but Nobu style consists of adding a twist to this familiar dish in the form of the chicken, shrimp and squid. Matsutake Kettle soup is a seasonal dish for fall/winter which is the perfect time for hot soup. It’s served in a classic teapot. You’re expected to drink it like tea and have addition of chicken, shrimp, and squid at the end.Beautiful presentation of sashimi plate.

Exotic Salmon Eggs sashimi. Seared Toro Karashi Sumiso; KSM.

Grilled Wahu Beef on Japanese Roof Tile. You will grill it at your table. Compliment your meal with sake in a wooden box. We like it this way. the wooden box enhances the taste of your sake because you can taste the wood. It’s just like you have a certain glass for a certain wine.

Hanna Bernhard Jewelry

It’s a small world. Last month, I was on eBay and ordered vintage necklaces from Natalie from Paris. It was wonderful to do business with her; fast shipping, friendly ebayer. We started to have a few emails together and I’ve felt a connection with her. She seems like a lovely lady. Well, about 2 weeks go when I was in Paris with Judy, she wanted to visit her friend, Natalie. I was invited to come along. Natalie???… For some reason, I had a feeling that maybe it was the Natalie with whom I’ve been buying things and emailing. Guess what? my feeling was right. What a surprise to meet her and even more of a surprise that she is the one (and her husband) that produces all the beautiful jewelry by Hanna Bernhard. It was so wonderful to meet her and she is even more lovely and sweet in person. I also had a chance to meet her husband, Fernand , a charming gentlemen. It was an amazing experience to see their studio. Thank you Natalie and Fernand for letting me take pics of your magnificent jewelry.
I love something that’s cultural like this Venetian mask.

African mask, it still needs to insert few more stones.Unfinished Japanese lady. Cute pierrot.Martina bought this beautiful cross.Animal is always fun.This amazing bull, one of his eye needs to be done.Look at this monkey, he looks so real.Love love this sweet, beautiful hummingbird.After we leaving, she gave us all a ring as a gift. Thank you Natalie, again!

I ordered a couple of pieces. She said that I should have them before Christmas. Can’t wait! :). Please, check out her ebay store. It’s awesome!

Under the Sea

Since I got back home from Paris. I’ve been inspired to post, post, post…I’m busy but I’ve worked out my schedule to make time for blogging :)I’m a seafood person. I love fish, prawn, lobster, crab, clam..etc…The only time that I ate lots of meat was when I was pregnant with my two kids. Yes, my brain was telling me that I hated seafood. Especially, FISH that I couldn’t stand for its smell.

Here are some pictures of seafood dishes that I’ve captured through my travel.
At Hiramatsu restaurant in Paris, 52 rue de Longchamp: white fish with green apple, pear, and red bell pepper.
Pasta with clam sauteed in butter sauce, at Aurora in Dallas. Now, it is Nosh; a Euro bistro style restaurant on 4216 Oak Lawn Avenue.Fresh langoustine with tabbouleh at Faventia restaurant at the Four Seasons Resort Provence.Sardines and caviar tomatoes salad, also at Faventia.Rare grilled toro (fatty tuna belly) at Nobu in Dallas, 400 Crescent Court. Now, NOT Under the Sea :)
This is one of my favorite Christopher Ross belts. Gazelle head buckle. I like it when it sits off one side on the waist.Wearing Jcrew denim shirt, Alexander Wang quilted denim shorts, Alaia ponyhair hiking booties.Rebecca Minkoff Boyfriend bag.Thank you everyone for visiting and comments! Wishing you all a wonderful day! Hugs…Hanh :)

Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2011 Collection private event

I was honored to get an invitation from Balenciaga to attend the S/S2011 collection private event in Paris, along with Sea_of_shoes, Atlantis Home, and The little Fashion Treasury. We had an awesome time and great experience trip. The event was wonderful and the collection is just amazing. Thank you Balenciaga for the chance to see the collection in person and the opportunity to try on some pieces. The cut, the style is edgy, masculine but feminine. I especially love the wet-looking, plasticized textures, which Jane and I joked that Nicolas Ghesquiere must have been inspired from his kitchen :) Ziploc button-down shirts. Again, his design shows terrific work when the handmade and the technological meet. Too bad! no photo allowed at the event. You always could view it at But the photo doesn’t do its justice.

Thank you everyone for visiting and comments! Wishing you a fabulous day! Kisses…Hanh :)

Last Season…

While I organized my picture file, I found these pictures which were taken during the past summer. It was the time that I found great Christopher Ross belts on eBay at great price. My Christopher Ross belt collection has expanded large since last time that I shared with you my first butterfly C Ross belt . I’ll probably take pictures of the collection to share here sometime soon.

Wore the snake belt with Junya Watanabe dress. I love the cut and drapes of the dress.The frog and Dries Van Noten dress. It’s one of my favorite outfits during the time we were on Provence vacation.Styled the owl with The Row skirt and Haider Ackermann top.Thank you everyone for visiting and comments! Wishing you all a wonderful day ahead! Hugs…Hanh :)
