Fun weekend & review J.Crew Collection luxury cashmere ISLE sweater

DVF fox fur vest (great style available here)
Theory motorcycle leather jacket
Club Monaco Julie sweater
Theory suede pants
YSL muse bag

Hi all, I hope you had a great weekend and wish you a good start of the new week! We watched a hockey game Saturday night, which was our first experience. The game was so exciting and fast-paced that we forgot taking pictures at all~ My little boy and his friend enjoyed the game a lot!

Another way of wearing leather jackets (previous pairing here) in winter days is adding a fur vest on the top. Compared to the Vince fox fur vest (see here), I like pairing a leather jacket with a cropped vest better. Unless the sleeves (of the leather jacket) are super skinny– which are not the case in my closet, adding a long vest makes the entire look bulky. 

J Crew collection cashmere ISLE turtleneck 
This Fair Isle turtleneck sweater seems to be the top of JCrew collection line, $650 originally. After waiting for a whole season, the price eventually dropped. I paid $118 (SA matched the online price $279.99, plus an extra 50% off sale and 15% of university ID). The handknit construction not only gives this sweater a pronounced texture, but also decreases the level of cold weather penetration. I did not feel that cold by wearing it alone outside for ~5 minutes, 38F. It only requires hand wash. This is the last one left in my local store, so I did not get a chance to compare the fit between different sizes. The one I bought is size M, which fits me well except the sleeves (I folded them in the pictures). My guess is that it runs one size small.

Burberry double-breasted down coat and YSL cabas chyc

My favorite riding boots by Salvatore Ferragamo are on sale at Zappos for $343 (here). If you are interested in them, you may want to consider half size down (I wear 7B of this pair, rather than my normal shoe size 7.5B).

DJP boots

A better way to team up with this figure-flattering coat might be a mini dress and ankle boots. On this chilly Saturday, when kids’ activities are scheduled all day long, I let the winter stand in the way of style. The YSL Cabas Chyc picked by my dear friend Alexa can pretty much mix and match every outfit. It is casual and effortless.

There are two pieces I am interested in: Burberry peplum jacket (Wendy wears here) and Isabel Marant wedge sneakers. How do you like the look below?

Lamb fur jecket – the best friend of cold snowy weather

Hello everyone, I wish you had a great weekend. I was so excited to get this lamb fur jacket yesterday from the Saks Fifth Avenue Fur Salon. It was on sale for $312 plus tax, which was a great deal. Alexa (see here) got the same jacket in camel color last year, and I was not able to order one at that time. I am so glad the same style came back again this year. For your reference, the color of mine is dark brown,  and the size is 38E. 

I Purchased the Prada blue leather belt from Saks in New Years day. It was on Sale for $124.25, Plus additional 10% off by using Saks charge. However, this belt is not reduced on If you are interested in this belt, you may locator order one from any Saks store. The item number is 8058966566148

YSL Muse Sale Update & repost our review

“Good News” for someone who is interested in YSL Muse handbags, right now have 8 different colors on SALE at $1183, 30% off the MSRP (Click Here)

I like the red one the most. It’s a great color for the holiday season. What is your favorite color?

‘Quality is the top notch of this bag!  It is made with enduring leather. It hasn’t gotten any scratches so far. All the corners are still in pretty good condition after it has been used for almost two years. To be honest with you, I did not pay extra attention to this bag, since I bought it on sale at an unbelievable price. There is no water stain on mine. Maybe due to the color, there are even no obvious stains on the handles! Only thing that left a light stain is hand sensitizerand I don’t know whether the stain will fade over time or not (I just got that yesterday). In addition, it has top-zip closure which is great for travel! Size wise, it (10 1/2″H x 16″W x 5″D) is big enough for everyday use (sunglasses, mac air laptop 11”, wallets, scarf, etc.) but still fits my frame (I am 5’4 for your reference). It can be put over the shoulder unless I wear a chunky coat. The only issue, if it is an issue, is that it might take you a little bit while to find things inside it. There are not many compartments inside the bag, except a cell phone pocket and an inside zip pocket. These days, cell phones can be a little bit too heavy for the cell phone pocket (I might be over cautious about this, especially iPhone 5 is there in the market, lol); therefore, I search my cell phone all the time. Overall, I love my YSL muse tote, which is definitely a low-key, classic but trendy bag!’

My First Fall Outfit: Color Block Dress,Wool scarf, Platform boots

After we came back from our NYC/Boston trip, the weather in Cleveland chilled down. The temperature dropped to 60s and Fall finally arrived. It’s the most beautiful season in Cleveland yet very short , only lasts for few weeks. I always believe fall is the best season to create an outfit with spring, summer, fall, even some winter single pieces.

I bought this as an oil-free primer, and it does its work to me. It is good for my combination skin, and doesn’t cause any break out in the T zone.  I also like the natural coverage, which can be used as a tinted moisturizer. I don’t mind its fragrance, which is actually pretty pleasant to me. I bought the #2 shade “Nude”, which is okay for me (especially summer time); I might try #1 next time. If you like a glowing and healthy look, definitely try #2!

It is very good, air-light, no breaking out, pleasant smell and seamless glowing in a good way! But it doesn’t have strong coverage (concealer might be needed). Together with a thin layer of loose powder, the makeup lasts all day long. Well, as a foundation, it is insanely expensive. It is not fair to say this one is better than Dior Nude. I used at least 3 bottles of Dior Nude (#23, peach) so far, and the reason I switched to by Terry is I wanna try new things :). I use by Terry plumping fluid foundation #4 (golden praline), which is a little bit darker (or golden?) than Dior Nude #23. Sometime I mixed them together at 1:1, which gave perfect shade! However, both of them work wonderfully.

It is a great concealer, way better than YSL Touche Eclat! Thanks to its light weight (but full coverage!), it doesn’t crease at all! I don’t have dark circles, but from reviews, this concealer is extremely good for dark circle coverage. I use shade #2, cream.

It lasts definitely longer than most lip gloss. After drinking starbucks and kissing my son many many times, I still had the color and gloss! No-drying, not sticky at all! It is the best lip stain (with glossy shine) I ever had! Strongly recommend! I use shade #6 Camel Croisiere , slightly orange tone.

The Naked2 has several nice matte shades (especially the highlight for under brow area), and even shimmery shadows are not over the top! My Naked 1 and 2 work well together! From over 1000 reviews (and close to 5 star overall review!), you will know it is a good product!

Here is a silly iPhone picture showing my simple makeup: by Terry & Dior mixed foundation + eye brow + Nars blush (sin) + YSL lip stain

 About 5 hours later (I drank coffee, milk and water… kissed my son’s cheek…. and took a nap) — color is still there with gloss 🙂 (ignore my dry patches)
