2012 New England color run

Did a colorful and crazy 5k today! More than 10,000 runners / walkers came for this New England color run event.

Crazy color started at the start line!

Traffic was super tough this morning, and we was stuck at the freeway exit for about one hour……. Finally we decided to drive directly to the start point!

Road running in July seems to be tough, even it was only 80F today! For some kind of excuse, my team members did not show up today!

Crazily colorful~~~


Salvatore Ferragamo varina flats in TABACO had Salvatore Ferragamo sale last weekend (thank Yezi for the prompt phone call!), and I ordered a pair of varina flats in Tabaco. Flats made by Salvatore Ferragamo and Chanel, so far, are my favorites, both of which have classic design, decent quality and great fit (Chanel classic flats are softer and even more comfy than SF flats! Size wise , Chanel mostly runs half size small SF patent leather flats run half size small, while their regular leather flats run true to size). Price wise, Chanel classic flats (non-quilted) are rare on sale; Salvatore Ferragamo varina flats and vara pumps (my holy grail SF styles) may be put on sale (normally during b-money time, 20%-40% off) once a while at Bloomie, but only selective colors. This is the first time, I found SF sale on 6pm website :). The leather shows “straw knitting” pattern, and is something between regular leather and suede. Color is called “TABACO”, and matches perfectly with LV neverfull bag.

with Milly loulou dress (I like to wear the dress with pumps for a night out, and with flats for work)

with Zara peachy blazer (xs fits well on me. But it wrinkles easily even after sitting in a car for 15 minutes) and Zara skirt


Express crochet tee & Stella Jamie draped silk dress

Hello Fabby readers, it’s Friday again, I wish you all have a great weekend.

I got this Stella &Jamie draped silk dress from TJ Maxx the Runway in late spring. The Lime color is one of my favriote color, it’s fresh and brighten up my skin tone. I also love the draping detail. I found this black Crochet tee from Express clearance rack for only $12, it’s goes very well with the dress. You may still buy this top from

Zara red shorts with stud belt

Since we signed up for a family membership, we spend weekend mornings in the gym. So, my weekend looking is most likely to be t-shirt and shorts :). I wore my new buy, Zara red shorts today. I have kept my eyes on red summer skirts for a while, and eventually I took home a pair of red shorts. Will restyle it with white tops soon!

As to workout, now I alternate running (>30 minutes, @6.4 mph) and swimming (>1km, breaststroke and free style), 4 times per week. I plan to increase strength a little bit and add some weight training. We also plan to sign up for a climbing class. However, workout, sometime, puts couple pounds on me (instead of taking any off)! But it does keep my belly flat and waist small.
