Every time when I talk about fashion, I somehow instantly think about french women. I remember when I visited France, I was so fascinated with their taste of fashion. It seems like each french woman is some kind of artist that managed to turn an ordinary pair of jeans and LBD into something so WOW. I truly believe that all french women are born with this gifted magical styling ability! So I have decided to dig around to see how they dressed and came out with a few points. My perspective is that french women dress to carry an ‘aura’ e.g. classy, elegant and confident rather than blindly chasing after fashion trends. They never throw too much prints, colours and accessories on to themselves like a Christmas tree. To look sexy, they will tastefully reveal their shaders, waists and legs but never try too hard to look sexy and have half of their boobs hanging off their chest! (ok! maybe I am abit jealous that my girls are not big enough to hang…..when I mean girls, you know what I mean right, girl )!

Anyway, I know I am out of topic again. What I want to say is, in this outfit I am trying to be a mademoiselle and I was thinking what is more french than polka dots? Seriously, I think polka dots print deserves to be France national print! In this outfit, I have paired this beautiful polka dots palazzo with a simple white tube and a black big hats. I hope you like it and are ready to enjoy the ‘Français” experience!

p.s. After flicking through all the fashion magazines this morning I noticed that there was a trend amongst celebrities to carry dogs, babies and starbucks in their street style snapshots. So I asked Marcus during this photoshoot, which one would he provide, 5 minutes later he brought over a ice latte and three dogs from a stranger!

 

每次說到時尚 就會莫名的聯想到法國女人,記得上次去法國玩時,覺得每位法國女人都好像是個魔術師,總是可以把一件簡單平常的牛仔褲或是黑色洋裝穿的格外時尚,好像每個法國女人生下來就具備著天生的好品味,但是到底怎麼穿才可以穿出獨特的法國風格呢?經過我的研究,我發現法國女人在穿衣服有幾個特點,就是她們追求的是一種『韻味』而不是盲目的跟隨流行,她們穿出簡單,優雅和自信,而絕對不會把過多的花色,顏色和配件象聖誕樹一樣我自己身上丟,更不會追求過度暴露的性感,既使性感也只是小露香肩,小蠻腰或是腿,而不是直接的把半顆地球掛在胸前(我想我可能是有吃不到葡萄說葡萄酸的心態吧…..哈哈)

Anyway, 我又離題了!反正我想說的是:說到法國時尚一定會想到點點花紋,我想說點點花紋是法國人的國民花色有不過份吧?我這身穿搭的重點就在這點點褲裙,利落又浪漫,我選擇搭配上簡單的白色小可愛和黑色的編織帽,希望你們會喜歡!

p.s. 我跟我男朋友說:怎麼女星街拍的時後手上要碼不是拿著咖啡,就是遛著狗或是抱著小孩,是不是新的Fashion潮流?我是不是該生個小孩或是來養狗阿(純屬玩笑)? 結果他馬上跑去跟路人借了三隻狗來給我過乾隱 ==

Out of the blue I wanted to try out this new cool/rocker-ish look. Does it suit me? I quite like this outfit but I am still not 100% convinced. Anyway, recently I am very into tshirts with printed words. People who knows me would know that I am always after the effortless look. lol So if you like this kind of ‘I am not trying at all and yet I look stunning’ outfit then printed word t-shirt is definitely for you! In this outfit, I paired up with ripped jeans and my boyfriend’s brown backpack! Hope you like it!

 

突然心血來潮想要嘗試比較酷的 rocker風格!適合我嗎? 雖然我自己還蠻喜歡的不過還是沒有百分之百被說服,anyway 最近真的真的很喜歡簡單的T恤,尤其是有印字的!認識我的人都知道我私底下ㄧ直不斷追求那種 看起來沒有特別打扮可是穿出來的衣服還是這麼好看的look! 哈 所以簡單的印字T恤是女生穿出休閒風格不可少的百搭商品喔!這套我選擇搭配破洞牛仔褲和男朋友的咖啡色皮背包!好看嗎?

早在今年的3月 我開始研究2014年春夏的流行趨勢時就看到『七分褲裙』,我很驚訝,更感到非常的離奇,覺得為什麼這麼不討女生身材歡心的褲子會登上時尚看板,更不用說寬寬鬆鬆加上七分長度不把我們女生的腿變成『恨天矮肥短』才怪!可是人真的不能太鐵尺,沒想到竟然短短的幾個月 我卻被它全全收買了!

我想姐姐我真的越老對貼身的衣服越來越沒有耐心,以前為了愛美 非常願意接受緊到爆表煙管褲的折磨,還記得每次吃飽就會偷偷的把褲頭解開,回到家的第一件事就是脫褲子!可是現在真的無法度啦!

所以為了舒服 我開始研究要怎麼把七分褲裙穿的好看 穿的時尚!這是我為大家搭配的第一套!我選擇搭上一件利落剪裁的絲質白色上衣和每個女孩應該有的黑色高跟鞋,是不是整個散發出一種莫名的藝術氣息呢?

如果你也象我一樣喜歡七分褲裙卻不知道怎麼搭配的話,我在下面有副上幾個我喜歡的穿搭look提供你們參考喔!

While I was browsing through the Spring/Summer 2014 fashion trends early this year around March, I came across Culottes and instantly I was like ‘WHAT AND WHY?!?”! I was so confused and feel bizarre that such an unflattering trousers are in fashion! The length and the wide cutting makes we girls’ legs look short and fat! However, it is only been a few months and I have already changed my mind!

As I get older, I seriously ran out of patience for tight clothes! Previously I would let my super duper tight clothes torture me just to look good and had to unbuckle after meals. I remembered the first thing I used to do when I get home is to take off my jeans! Now…NO WAY!!

So yes, I spent a good amount of time try and error to find out ways to pair up this bad boy! I chose to wear it with a simple white silk top and a pair of stripe black heels that every women own! So I hope you like my first outfit with culottes! So artsy so chic right? lol

If you also like culottes like I do and still have no clue in how to wear them then I have prepare a few links below for your reference!

我這套是不是很有70年代波希米亞復古風的feeeel 呢?不知道最近怎麼了,這季我瘋狂似的愛了平常沒興趣的短板上衣,頭巾和破破爛爛的牛仔褲,不過把他們全部搭在一起,最後再加上圓形滾金邊的太陽眼鏡,天阿�~是不是別有一般風格呢?

Hey! What do guys think of this outfit? I have no clue why this season I am falling in love with items that would not interest me before for example crop top, headscarf and ripped jeans! But when I put all these items together with a round shaped sunglasses…VOILA! I hope you like it as much as I do!

MATCHING OUTFIT

It is strange that whenever people talk about ‘matching outfit’ they instantly think about formal top and skirt but no one ever says that matching outfit has to be formal and must be top and skirt! I love my matching checkered top and shorts and I really do not care if others tell me that I look like wearing pyjama outdoors because, pyjama is known to be “comfortable” and perfect for summer! Not to mention it is also super FUN to wear!

通常說到『套裝』你是不是會馬上想到正式場合穿的上衣跟裙子呢?不過誰說套裝不能是休閒的上衣短褲!我就偏偏喜歡這俏麗的格子套裝! 我發自內心的真的不CARE有人說我看起來像穿著睡衣出門,因為睡衣就是要『舒服』,所以在這種熱到讓人抓狂的大熱天當然就一定要穿上它囉!因為它除了舒服也非常簡單,慵懶和SUPER FUN!

Boyfriend jeans … what can i say, I love them! Their the perfect outfit for the casual not-trying-too-hard look and are super comfortable! I wanted to post about boyfriend jeans for a while, because there are a few things to get right because of their baggy fit they can make your figure unflattering. So first you have to show the skinny parts of your body to emphasis its just the jeans that are baggy, not your shape. For me, I showed my ankles paired up with white heels (adding length to my body) and a sleeveless top so my arms can emphasise my shape further. This outfit was even more with all the fun accessories I managed to pair up, the rings, bracelet and the envelop carry on bag for my small documents (like i have anything serious in there except my iphone LOL). I topped off the outfit for my boyfriend’s hat he got from japan, although his head is sooooo small it hardly fits me. Tell me what you think in the comments.

Don’t you think the green and the orange watercolour print looks so fresh and cool? Sometimes I feel that there is really no need to put on lots of accessories and over complicate the outfit. I personally love a simple outfit in the summer time as it is easy going and carefree. Totally my character! lol Definitely my number one choice for summer!

Hey everybody! I am currently writing this post amidst the most badass typhoon trying to blow down my house (jokes). It only lasted a few hours but I am not complaining as I get a day off to lie in, watch telly and eat instant noodles! For those that are judging this is Taiwan Typhoon etiquette…for realzzz.

Anyway, thanks to the typhoon I’ve got time to write this post. This is the outfit I wore last sunday and I ABSOLUTELY love this top. This summer you can find this pinkish/orangish/nude-ish colour everywhere and the see through lace material is everywhere too! I am certain that you can find something with lace material in every high brand either as a skirt, top or a dress! I chose to pair this top with a bright high waist checker pencil skirt, creating the 2014 vintage look!

p.s If you like my outfit, please like or share my page as it will mean SOOOO MUCH to me! Thanks! xxxxx

Honestly, deep down I am a “teenage sunflower” just like my outfit! LOL but anyway, if you ask me what is my favourite item in my wardrobe, I would tell u in a heart beat that it is my simple white tank top! However, if you have asked me the same question just about a year ago, I would have probably told you that it is this dress or THAT dress. I have totally underestimated the value of a simple tank top all these years…and I have only came to realise how diverse (economic) it can be! You can literally pair it with ANY type of style you can think of! Stripes, floral, block colour, skirt, trousers, shorts, ANYTHING and EVERYTHING and it is oh-so-damn perfect for the summer weather! So anyway, in this post I have paired it with micro mini checker skirt and bright big yellow bag! I hope you like it and ready to fight the temperature!

Oh look at the beautiful sky and the beautiful scenery..has it melt your heart already? Certainly has already melted mine …literally…did forgot to mention it was 37 degrees?! But anyway, to match such beautiful scenery, I have politely put on my “victory collection” from the ZARA sales battle field! When I first saw this striped crop top I straight away knew how I wanna match it: the 40s Pin Up Girl style! I feel that each era has its own unique sense that I enjoy, from the 20s glamourous all the way to the 90s colourful neon hiphop! I love them all! I hope you love this outfit too fashionistas!p.s. This is completely out of topic but I can not stop myself from wanting to tell you how addicted I am to Orange is the new black! A super thumb up from me!
