Happy Friday! We have a day off from work / school here due to a snowstorm that sweeps the northeast. While I am writing this post, snow starts to pile up and may build up to 2 ft overnight. We are expecting a white Chinese new year tomorrow.

The DVF fox fur vest is definitely one of the most practical pieces in my closet. You can wear it over a dress, to a dinner or even a party; wear it on a sweater to work, or for a stroll or grocery in the weekend; put it over a leather (here) or wool jacket to overcome extreme cold without bulk. I received many questions of this vest, the fitting and availability. Size wise, you may want to consider one size up (I wear this vest in size small, 5’4, 109 lb). It was sold out in Saks Fifth Avenue, but is still available in DVF official website and MATCHES. In snowy days, you can easily brush the snow off the fur and hang it back in your closet~

The new toy (Leica D-LUX6) works well (clear and less distortion) in fitting rooms without flash, where are normally poor lighted. The large aperture (f1.4-) and quality lens are the niche points of this camera. However, it doesn’t give you much boca. It still need to be tested outdoor.

Thank you for your reading and have a good weekend!

Drop a quick update of my new toy, a compact Leica D-LUX 6 camera, which finally arrived today! It will be an addition of contents in my bag. Will take some pictures with it this weekend, and share my experience of it here!

A blizzard is expected here with 2 ft snow! For those who live in the northeast, stay warm and play safe!

Happy Saturday, everyone! Are you ready for the game night tomorrow? We used to throw a super bowl party every year, getting together with friends, enjoying food and watching the game. Hopefully, we can hold one next year in our new house. Who will win the game tomorrow, Raven or 49ers? My guess is the later, 49ers. 

Buying a new construction requires a lot of work. We spent an entire afternoon in a tile store, as the first meeting, discussing the choice of cabinets, floor and backsplash tile, shower design, color of the granite countertop… Fortunately, we still made a trip to the shopping mall, taking couple pictures, before stores closed.  

I adore the sweaters with different hem designs, high-low (wore here), uneven (wore here) or asymmetrical like this Helmut Lang sweater. Tattered knit style, rich color and the asymmetrical hem make this sweater stand out from others. Pairing it with rich brown suede pants gives a soft and warm look. I will restyle it with black pants soon, which should create an edgy look on night out~

I purchased this sweater in size small (one size up) from Neiman Marcus, and the item number is 883389280566. 

Thank you for your reading and enjoy SUPER BOWL night!

JCrew Fair Isle sweater with biker leggings (and NM consolidation sale…)

J.Crew fair isle cashmere sweater (sale here)

As suggested by J.Crew catalog, I wore black pants with my new luxury green cashmere sweater today. Black apparently makes this sweater more stand out! After couple wears, I think this sweater worth every penny it asks for. It is way thicker than all other cashmere sweaters in my closet, and doesn’t get fuzz balls easily! You won’t regret having it if you live in a cold place, as me. 

All Saints Ridley leggings (here)

When static electricity gets annoying (in dry winter days), I prefer heavy cotton leggings over nylon ones. My trusty cotton/modal leggings are made by AllSaints. The heavy cotton blend jersey gives great butt lift and thigh control. The paneled design is great with biker or riding boots. After dozens of wash, the color is still as new, and fitting doesn’t change. I wear UK6/US2 (for your reference, my jeans size is 25).

Neiman Marcus consolidation sale (in store only) started today. Most of sale items got a second or even third price cut, plus an additional 25% off~ However, all sales are final. I took home two sweaters.

1. Rag and Bone chunky sweater (available online here). It was $495, and is $129.75 (item number 96817312). I bought size small, which was slightly roomy. The red leather jeans I tried in the below picture is made by Joe’s (different color here), and is on sale around $200.

2. Vince boatneck sweater (online available here and here). It was $285, and is $128.25 (item number 822508027743). 

There are Vince V-back cashmere sweater (I wore here) sale at $64 and Vince shrunken turtleneck sweater (same here, in olive and navy) sale at $78. A great selection of jeans are sale at a price around $50. In addition, I tried several shirts (DG, Ralph Lauren, etc.) and a Gucci wool dress (was $1400, is $362) on the premier designer sale rack. However, my size is not available… I should have not worked till 7 today. 

Thank you for your reading and have a good weekend!
