My previous post about this new project that I finally have time to finish this weekend! This DIY miu Miu collar came out nicely, the only thing that i am not too happy with is the cat print on the left is upside down. I wish I've noticed it before I cut the fabric..Oh well..It's too late now. It's still nice. I am thinking to add some beading around the cat print. What do you guys think?

How's everyone's Memorial weekend? :)
I did some serious shopping this weekend which I shouldn't have. V___V I'll show you guys what I've got later. :P
Gotta go to sleep, have to go to work early tomorrow!!!

Matte about you

Here you can see my middle two fingers that I put on this matte about you topcode. You really can see the effect! Amazing!!!

My co-worker recently discovered this essie top code. It makes any of your nail polish matte. I remember I was always complaining that i can not find any nail polish without shine, it's always shiny. Never can find matte, and here you go!!! One for all!!! NICE!

Vintage classic woven bag
I bought this bag couple years ago and I have never use it before. yesterday when I was planning my outfit for work, I dig this bag out of my closet and found $13.00 in it..haha, I guess 13 is not always an unlucky number.. :P

Pictures by Esc photo approached me to style this fur vest from Collection B's newest fall collection. This is my take, I feel I could wear this fur piece in a casual way as well as dress up formally. It is definitely a must have piece for the new fall/winter seasons! :)

pretty pretty eyes

I've always loved eyelashes, maybe it's because i am Asian and our features aren't as deep. So fake eyelashes are the best quick fix.

We went to old city hall station where New York City's underground railroad was officially opened on October 27th, 1904. Inside they have all these beautiful arches composed of cream tile with gloss green arches and brown trim edges. Three of the arches are set off by magnificent leaded glass skylights and twelve ornate brass electric chandeliers hung from the center of the vaults to light the platform along the track. The City Hall station was closed to the public on December 31st, 1945, and the chandeliers were were never turned off ever since. It's truly amazing and feels like a movie set.
We are the member of the New York Transit Museum so lucky for us, we got the chance to see this underground secret. You normally can't go to the City Hall station, they rarely schedule for this kind of tour. We've been waiting for a long time to do this and we were happy we finally get to see and experience it.

AllSaints -> Opens in Soho Today

AllSaints collage
These babies would fit perfect in my closet. Today we went to the launch of All Saints from UK. The whole store is full filled with industrial sewing machine and shoe lasts!!! The interiors are INSANE!!! All the employees look like MODELS, Seriously!!! And they are super friendly as well. :) There are so many nice pieces in store that I'd like to buy but I don't see online. I was going gaga in the store the whole time!!! I want it all!!! I really like the silhouette and the drape from these pieces. The line is contemporary with a twist of edgy attitude to it. It's the cool kids' must have!!! Simple but practical!
Still can't afford em' yet. Too much bill to pay, I can only do this kind of window/web shopping and drool over em' all!!! Huh...

I DIY this armor piece last week and I have to say it took a lot longer than I expected.
It looks simple, but the chains are so fine/thin. It's so hard to work with, and every single chain needs to add extra jump rings. It's really not so easy task, but I'll have to say I am pretty happy with the outcome. What do you guys think??? :)
