family, Vacation

San Francisco 2017

Hello readers!  I apologize for taking so long to do a new post.  I just came back from Europe (actually it has been more than a week, but jet lag is for real) and I haven’t had a chance to organize my pictures.

I try to go on vacation once a year with my family, but this year I also went to Europe with my sisters.  I haven’t had a back to back trip in a while.  It was blissful but sure exhausting.  I spent the whole July and early August vacationing.  Don’t worry, I will have posts on the places I visited.  Now, let’s start with San Francisco.

This is my third time to SF but the last time I went was back in 2004.  I went with a few friends and also went to Napa Valley.  This time it was just a short 3 days trip, mainly to visit my husband’s friends whom we haven’t seen over 15 years.  We arrived in the late afternoon and just dined at Cheesecake Factory.  Then we went back to the hotel to rest up.

Believe it or not, I rarely eat dim sum in Vancouver but for some reason, I’m always down for Chinese food when I’m out of town.  The dim sums were pretty good, but it was pricey.  Actually, I think the reason is that our Canadian dollar is so weak, I find the food was rather expensive in SF.

One of my favourite dishes I like to order at dim sum is egg crisps.  It’s a Cantonese dim sum dessert made from a dough of eggs, flour, sugar, and lard.  Not many places make it well but this place, it’s perfect.

Long Shirt Look

Shirt:  BCBG  Jeans:  Urban Outfitters
Bag:  Louis Vuitton (old)  Heels:  Dior (old)

Happy Summer!  Oh, how I miss my fashion posts.  Do you guys miss it too?  I bought this long shirt from BCBG because they’re closing permanently.  I was pretty shocked when I heard about it, but anyhow, I managed to score something I like.

I’m very sad to see so many retailers closing in 2017.  I guess e-commerce and the rapid growth of Amazon have an impact.  I’m guilty of both.  Lol.

I’m going on vacation in a few days.  Find me on Instagram to see what I will be doing.  Hope you all have a great summer and if I have time, I will throw in a post while I’m on vacation.

fashion, My bags

My Collection: Vintage Bags

Remember how I told you I’m decluttering my clothes and downsizing my handbag collection.  I’m still in the process of doing it, and it might take me a while because I have SO MANY.  My goal is to have a carefully-curated collection of classic handbags.

I sold quite a few bags and I’m telling you, I don’t know what I was thinking back then.  I mean, if I didn’t buy all those bags, I would have enough money to put down payments on two houses!!  And you know how expensive the housing market it is in Vancouver.  Okay, okay, maybe I’m exaggerating, but definitely on one condo.  Hehe.

Anyway, there are some bags I have trouble parting and I’d like to share them with you today.  I like to refer to them as vintage since they are older than 10 years and also old enough to be in fashion again.  Well, you know what I mean.

This is a vintage Chanel bag I bought from Malleries.  I always wanted a beige colour Chanel in my collection.  I don’t use this bag very often but I do like it.  It is very roomy and it looks very good either dressed up or down.
As seen here, this bag works perfectly with this neutral outfit.

I love this Dior clutch.  I don’t remember where I bought this but I remember it wasn’t that expensive, maybe less than $150.  Honestly, I haven’t used this bag in a long time, but I’m not ready to sell it yet.
