New-wave Minimalism

Nicole Farh introduced the new minimalism during the London S/S 2011 catwalk. Beautiful flat sandals and mid-height heels in tan and colored leathers with clear plastic strap are the high lights of the her footwear collection.

Mulberry's Cool City Look

I've always loved the Mulberry's cool city look with crafted British countryside twist. Their leather goods including bags and shoes are fashion 'must haves' for a while. This bright magenta heels with gold studs accents is just a thing for many parties and your office style boost-up.

You gotta get DSquared in 2011

Did you borrow from your boy? If not, please do so in Spring 2011. Simple crisscross-strapped leather sandals, diamante-studded T-bar heels, flat masculine brogues either in polished dark brown leather or two-tone - worn with slouchy ankle socks. 

D & G 2011 Spring

Pretty picnic with a touch of gypsy romance. And this very detail oriented cork wedge platform is just a thing. Extreme platforms with woven wedge soles featuring a corsage at the ankle. Gotta has it!

Candle Light Dinner with Home-made Mandoo Soup

Hand-made mandoo. Yes, it is. I also made broth with all healthy organic veggies. All organic, all healthy and all yummy.

You are Sweet and Sour...

One of my go-to spot in my town, China Grill Bistro in Manhattan Beach Mall. I love their sweet and sour soup. It's made with shredded breast of chicken, black mushroom, bean curd, in a peppery consomm. Try it. I think you will love it too.

Vivienne Westwood Pirate Boot

Seditious swashbuckling style is smooth sailing when you uncover the thrilling treasure of this vivaciously vicious Vivienne Westwood classic! Beautifully made in Italy.

Relaxed Luxury

This beautifully constructed Bogetta Veneta shoe is soft and unstructured, casually sporty. What would you call this dreamy color? Airy shades of milk white, cream, neutral parchment... Love it.

Blumarine – Spring, Summer 2011

Sophisticated and bright colors in easily recognizable Blumarine style which makes each accessory a must-have and not just a valuable add-on.

Subtle 70s References

Love subtle 70s references with elongated and neat from Spring, Summer 2011, Aquilano & Rimondi. Colour is a riotous mix of cobalt, yellow, mandarin, jade, lime, brick red and soft poudre pink, offset with accents of magenta, black and white, and a flash of citric neon is the key for brighten up new year.

Best Tofu award goes to...

Agedashi Tofu!!!
Agedashi tofu is a simple Japanese way to serve hot tofu. Silken firm tofu, cut into cubes, is lightly dusted with potato starch or cornstarch and then deep fried until golden brown. It's then served in a hot tentsuyu broth made of dashi, mirin, and shoyu (Japanese soy sauce), and topped with finely chopped green onions or grated daikon. It is eaten with chopsticks.
