I'm obsessed with floral patterns and bright color things, this season, Jil Sander's floral outfits are really attention grabbers for me. Simply stunning and gorgeous! Those beautiful bright flowers match the navy blue just perfectly. I especially love the collar details that balances the slouchy silhouette well. The floral shirts and slim pants can absolutely go with other plain items easily. Do you love it? I've never thought about that the full pattern pieces can be well matched like this!

Many designers, such as Lanvin, Christian Louboutin, like to use the exotic materials or prints for the footwear design. Comme des Garcons this season has launched this pair of snakeskin-embossed sneakers at a "friendly" price ($360). Made up of 100% leather with gold snakeskin-embossed design, it is definitely a good pair for those who are in love with "Exotic" material.

The London-based fashion designer Peter Jensen teamed up with Urban Outfitters to launch an exclusive collection last year. I shopped at UO today and got the grey dog sweater, which is super cute and comfy. The whimsical animal knits are so fascinating, though I'm really in love with the blue bunny one, it's no longer available in the store! Apart from the knit series, the red triple collar shirt is another gorgeous item for me, which goes perfectly with the PJ knit dress and overall jumper. Oh, I really love this collection, so cute and playful, isn't it?!

I spotted a super cute barrel bag in Urban Outfitters ($78.00) today, whose style is so retro-chic! I love it so much. How do you think about it? I've been looking for a cute small bag for a long time, this one is just so perfect!

Victoria Beckham was spotted wearing a cool green Marc Jacobs Cutaway leather jacket pairing a black Celine classic box bag. I would say Celine bag (from the box bag and the envelope bag to the clutch and the tote bag) is the hottest accessory this season. We all know that Celine has successfully influenced the trend toward lady bag, but what kind of lady bag do you prefer? I totally adore the minimalism design without complicated details except the concise pattern and structured shape. How can we resist Celine's "classic minimalism" fascination by Phoebe Philo!?

Compare with the edgy leopard print, I personally prefer the skull print, which fits my style better. This cool Alexander McQueen's pashmina scarf with a skull coin pattern totally caught my eyes! I already put it into my wishlist. Do you think it can be a good accessory to pair a plain t-shirt in the summer??

Proenza Shouler has introduced the Pre-Fall 2011 collection, do you like the fresh striped bags? I really love the combination of gold and platinum buckles and hardware that make the bag looks sophisticated and cool. The details of the bag features PS11 small leather satchel, but comes in brighter and fresher stripe print. I think these striped bags are more unisex than the original PS1 and PS11. How do you think about it? Apart from the gorgeous design, another reason why I'm obsessed with Proenza Shouler so much is that they can always design fascinating colorful print. Love the striped design so much.

The Grammy Awards winner, Raymond Usher, was spotted wearing a red Julius leather jacket and a pair of Kris Van Assche sneakers (the sneakers are already on my wishlist) at the Belvedere Vodka Pre-Grammy event. I do like his outfit on the stage, very minimal yet cool.

The Mark McNairy New Amsterdam Snuff suede chukka boots really hit my eyes. Made in England, the boots have very traditional silhouette; however, with the yellow sole, the color combination is so playful and funky, isn't? Do you love them?

Gucci Leather Bomber Jacket $2,995
H&M Cotton Bomber Jacket $29.95 Zara Fake Leather Jacket $89.90
The very similar web waistband detail
It seems that H&M and Zara were inspired by the luxurious fashion house, Gucci. I found that both fast fashion giants have launched a bomber jacket recently, which is very similar to Gucci's. Just check the photos above! I do like the H&M's jacket. (Actually, this is the first piece I bought from H&M except the Lanvin for H&M collection.) Aside from the super reasonable price, the simple design is so easy to mix and match with other items. Besides, my friend bought the fake leather jacket from Zara, which has a slim cut design with some details, such as the epaulet and pockets. Both jackets are really similar to the Gucci leather bomber jacket, especially the web waistband detailing. Of course, Gucci leather has high quality and fine details; however, for those who don't have so much budget on apparel, these two items can be great choices!

We went to Alameda last Sunday and I got this red and blue sweater for 15 bulks. Oh, it's so cute and so Xmas, isn't it? I have to say everything about vintage and flea market is so appealing to me. If you were in SF, be sure to check Alameda flea market, which is held every first Sunday of the month.
