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!


Vince Sweater, Alpaca Fur Collar Scarf & YSL Muse

Hi all!
We had such a nice and warm weenkend here in Cleveland Ohio before Thanksgiving, which was very rare. While my husband took Allison to the playground, I went for a window shopping. Anthtopoligie, Trader Joe’s, TJ Maxx were all filled with crowds. No wonder, holiday shopping season has arrived. I would not buy anything before the black Friday, because some stores will have an extra saving on sale items, such as Saks and NM. Nordstrom Rack will offer $10 gift card with every $100 purchases. Another must-go place this year is Toy’s R Us, where I need to buy some toys for my little girl: any one knows their deals?
Today’s outfit was built with pieces bought in the past 3 years. To date, they are still great purchases to me, and I am still in love with them!

DVF Loves Current/Elliott skinny jeans

My new job started this week! I am fully charged and ready to GO! Can’t describe how excited I was when I saw these familiar recording racks and two-photon microscope. I am also excited at the new dressing code: I can wear jeans, sandals, cropped pants, and even shorts~~~ And, I have a parking permit, so, yes, I can park in downtown Boston without paying $$$$. If I want to use public transportation instead, the connection is nearby copley plaza – which means I could check copley shopping mall MORE frequently.

My new jeans (DVF Loves Current/Elliot classic skinny Jeans, similar here and here; I bought from Neiman Marcus, $93 after extra 40% off) seem to be very eye-catchy, and I was asked about them several times today.  This pair is comfy, with 9” rise and ankle length. It is true to size (I wear size 25, 5’4”, 109lb).

( now this is the only way I could take a picture from a mirror: step on a footstool and do half-squat 😦 ~~~ our big mirrors are all at the storage!)

Drop by and say hello to our fabby readers before I pack for tomorrow’s trip. Temperature dropped to 60F today here in Boston, and had to wear a sweater.

I checked our local runway Tjmaxx today, and there are new shipments of colored ankle length jeans (Paige and Vince). I grabbed a green (Vince) and a blue (Paige) one home, and need decide which to keep.

Some fun iPhone pictures Nathan and I took in the car :-). Will blog from TX tomorrow!
