Hey girls! Big soz for not been updating! After 7 days of rest from Malaysia, I am finally able to bring myself up to write this post! Honestly, I still cannot get over how much fun Malaysia was! Apart from seeing all the good friends and enjoying the delicious food, I particularly love the shopping experience Malaysia offers. All the fast fashion brands I used to shop in the UK that are not available in Taiwan but are available in Malaysia!!! I instantly went crazy and stayed in malls for as long as I can remember! lolAnd yes I was wearing this OTT attention-seeking dress that I bought a couple of years ago out and about. I never dare to wear this red asymmetric maxi out in Taiwan as I cannot bear the ideas that people might think I am a narcissist or even worst someone weird/crazy. (In Taiwan, street fashion is just a little conservative). Anyway, guess the holiday makes me a little more carefree and do not give a shxx about the others!! Horray! Hope you like it 😉

哈囉~ 終於在姊從馬來希亞回來的第七天來發文啦!說真的我還真的很喜歡去馬來希亞玩!除了見到多年的好朋友 吃到好吃的東西以外,馬來希亞真的是血拼天堂耶!在台灣買不到的各大快速時尚品牌在馬來希亞應有盡有,姊我就穿著這件大紅長裙在Sephora和Topshop裡逛了大半天呢!其實不知道為什麼,在台灣總是不敢把這件大紅斜肩長裙拿出來穿,總覺太強眼怕別人會誤以為我是花癡,可是到了馬來希亞卻一點也沒在害羞,出個國人整個就跟著Free起來了呢~

All the autumn/winter clothes are coming out now! I so can’t wait for the cold weather to come! Dear god please let the temperature drop another 10 degrees, pretty please! (and I know for a fact that soon winter comes, I will start complaining and wants the summer back again! Girls are fickle, I know it best! lol)! Even though it is still very hot over here but I cannot stop myself from putting on my first A/W purchase/outfit! Voila!
The most popular material for the cold weather is of course the “Leather”! Every winter, you will definitely see all sorts of leather clothing on the street, leather jacket, leather skirt, leather shorts, leather trousers, leather boots and the list goes on…So yes! In this outfit, I am wearing the most IN item of the season: the Midi Leather Pleated Skirt and trust me, it has to be MIDI and PLEATED! I paired it up with a light grey sweater and in the photos you can see 2 different ways of wearing this outfit by just changing the accessories. First, I had a white envelope purse with sharp gold/white earring on one ear to create a more elegant look. Second, I paired it with bowler hat with pearl earrings to give a more artsy/casual/goingtoagallery look! What do you think?

If you also like wearing leather skirt, I have listed a list of all the other leather skirt outfits I like for your reference! Check it out!

秋冬商品都陸陸續續的上架了,害我也開始期待冬天的到來,老天趕快讓天氣在降個10來度吧(來了之後我又會開始期待春天,難怪人家說女人是個善變的動物)雖然現在還是熱的要命可是我還是忍不住穿上今年的第一套秋裝!

秋冬當然少不了『皮』製商品,皮外套、皮衣、皮褲、皮裙樣樣不能少喔!今天我就穿上了今年超流行的中長板百折皮裙,相信我 今年一定要是半長和百折喔!我搭配上簡單的薄長袖灰色針織衫和運用不同的配 穿搭出兩個不同的感覺,第一,白色手拿包+大耳環 = 高貴優雅 第二,黑色紳士帽+珍珠耳環 = 休閒充滿藝術氣琪+帥氣又不失女人味!

喜歡皮裙的你們也趕快試試喔!我有找出幾個網站有不錯的搭配提供給你們大家!

KIMONO

n this outfit I was wearing a blue babydoll dress with kimono. Kimono has proved to be the fashion hit over the last summer and is still blasting fiercely into 2014! And as why I love it? Because apart from me being the biggest fashion sucka, I love how lightweight a kimono is! It makes layering so easy in summers and it makes anything SIMPLE into something so chic and cute!

I truly believe this outfit suits lazy girls like moi perfectly. The babydoll dress allows me to walk around stores in this freak of a hot weather freely and allows me to eat all I want AND even better, I do not need to suck in my stomach! However, if you ask me to just wear this babydoll dress out on its own, I will feel so bare and naked! That is why I decided to pair this colourful kimono to complete this look! Do you girls like it?

穿上以前買的娃娃裝加上最近很流行的KIMONO真是酥湖啦!Kimono在去年夏天瞬間暴紅,而今年再接再厲的紅遍歐美大街小巷!置於我為什麼喜歡呢? 因為它的輕薄材質在炎熱的夏天可以遮陽而穿上它又不會太熱,再加上它非常好搭配衣服,只要簡單的衣服配上它瞬間變的不單調又時尚!

我真心的覺得這套穿搭非常適合像我一樣的懶女人,穿著寬寬鬆鬆的娃娃裝讓我在夏天逛著熱死人的室外大街也不敢到黏膩,加上我還可以放肆的大吃大喝而且還不用縮小腹!!天阿!真是懶女人偷懶的救星阿!但如果要我只穿這件娃娃裝出門我會覺得很單調很沒有安全感, 所以我搭配上了一件充滿不同顏色細節的KIMONO!你們喜歡嗎?

METALLIC

I love Taiwan but I really detest shopping in Taiwan! I realised the fashion follows japanese and korean fashion closely here which I am not a huge fan because most of the styles have too much detail going on. E.g. puffy sleeves + cute lace + pearls + chiffon etc.

I prefer something bold, simple and elegant and my fashion philosophy is:
1. You should never have more than 3 colours on your body at one time.
2. One statement piece is more than enough! Sometimes you don’t event need one!
2. After putting your shoes on and before leaving the house, you should look into the mirror and take one item off (scarf, earrings or even lipstick colour etc.)

What I wanna say is, I seriously miss the UK shopping paradise and to ease my craving, I went to Hotel V as I read it on a magazine that it sells some of the TOPSHOP items and BAM! Look what I found?! This beautiful metallic pencil skirt! Tell me you are loving it too!

Metallic has always been a big hit during autumn and winter times as the weather gets darker day by day, colour on the street is turning muted and the dull atmosphere covers the whole city. So yes metallic is of course brighter than ever in autumn and winter and really adds some real glam to the dull dull weather!

I consider this silver pencil skirts as a statement piece and hence, I have paired it up with a simple sleeveless silk front watercolour print knitted back top. (lol you know what

I mean) Lastly I was carrying my new purchase white envelope purse! I hope you like it! Enjoy! xxx
我愛台灣 可是 我真的不愛在台灣逛街,因為我發現大部份在台灣賣的衣服都是給潮韓潮日的妹仔穿的,不要誤會我沒有不喜歡韓風日風的意思,只不過我個人不太喜歡『太多』的東西出現在同一件衣服上,太多details再一件衣服上真的會讓我頭暈,例:蓬蓬袖+蕾絲+珍珠+雪紡紗全部加在一起…喔買尬!而我呢…比較喜歡大膽,簡單利落加上一點貴氣的風格,我的穿衣哲學就是:

1. 身上應該不能超過3個顏色
2. 強眼吸睛的單品再身上只要出現一個就夠了
3. 每次穿好鞋子出門前我都會照照鏡子,然后拿掉身上某樣東西(耳環,口紅顏色,圍巾 等)

反正我想說的是 我超級想念英國的購物天堂啦!所以前幾天我跑去逛了Hotel V 因為我在雜誌上看到他們是Topshop在台灣的經銷商,然后將將將將 我找到了這件寶貝,快說!你們是不是也覺得這件銀色鉛筆裙真的超級無敵霹靂好看的呢?!

金屬風是秋冬季節永遠的主打,因為邁入秋冬時 天空會慢慢的越來越灰, 街景的顏色會越來越柔, 整個城市會越來越暗淡,所以再秋冬金屬顏色會格外的顯眼格外的吸引人!

而這件銀色鉛筆裙就是我定義中的一件『強眼吸睛的單品』,所以我搭配上了一件簡單的拼接材質無袖水彩印花上衣,前面是輕巧的絲與而後面是針織,最後加上一個千元有找的白色信封包,我已經開始等不及迎接秋天啦!

HOLDING ON THE SUMMER BY ITS TAIL

DSC07515

Photos by Marcus Cheng

Oh no!!!! I can’t believe summer has slipped away already (even though it is still 35 degrees over here!). So…I am gonna hold on the summer by its tail and let floral wash all over me, otherwise, I would have to wait till next year to go floral again! The topic of today is “How to wear floral without looking like an old lady”!

I recently dug this top out from my wardrobe and I was skeptical because…

1. I bought this top when I was 16, hence, 8 years ago….oh dear…
2. Wearing something from 2006 in 2014, will lead to people calling me the ‘out of fashion girl’ or the ‘old fashion girl’…(can’t decide which is worse, both horrible)

In an instant I made a judgment and I know I was right… I know that this top can survive all these years and still can be chic but why? Because floral tops are just like jeans…THEY NEVER GO OUT OF FASHION! True fact! Have you ever not seen floral in any of the Spring/Summer trend report?! So if your mum, your boyfriend or your husband ever ask you not to waste money on buying another floral top, you can then tell her or him that “ Spending your money on floral is the best investment as I can still wear them in 8 years time ok?!!!”

In this look, I have paired this floral shirtsleeves shirt with a simple white knee length
skirt and a pair of green ankle wrap heels. For some reasons, this outfit is kinda vintage-ish right? Or am I thinking too much…again? Make-up and hair wise, I have decided to put focus on my lips. I decided to put on an orange lipstick colour as I know it will pop with the green. With so much going on everywhere else, I have tied my hair into a neat pony tail to focus more on the outfit. Tell me if you like it or am I really turning into an ‘old fashion girl’ or ‘out of fashion girl’?

 

喔NO!!! 沒想到才一下子夏天就悄悄的過了(雖然台灣還是熱的要死)!但我還是要緊抓著夏天的尾巴不放,要放肆的大“ 花 ”特花的花個過癮 不然就要再等到明年了!所以今天的主題就叫『要怎麼花到徹底但不變花癡之人比花嬌』吧!

這件上衣是我最近從我的衣櫥翻出來的,翻出來的一瞬間還有點懷疑我還能穿它嗎,因為….

1. 這件衣服是我16歲時買的,也就是說我已經擁有它8年了…喔買尬!
2. 把2006年的衣服拿到2014年穿,會不會已經退流行+老土了呢?

可是很快的我就判定它是經得起歲月考驗的…因為碎花就像牛仔褲一樣 從來沒有退過流行,仔細想想有哪季的春夏你沒有看到花的出現呢?所以我說阿…如果你媽你男友or你老公等等叫你不要再浪費花錢買新衣的話,你就可以抬頭挺胸大聲的跟她/他說:『花你的錢買花的衣服是我為你做的最好投資,因為我8年後還可以穿ok?!』

Anyway 我這次為這件花花上衣搭配上一件白色的及膝裙和包腳踝的綠色高跟鞋,全部加在一起是不是有種說不上來的復古味道呢?還是我又想太多了?哈 置於妝髮的部份 我把重點放在口紅上,我選擇橘色是為了要增加跟綠色的衝突,但既然臉跟上半身都花了 所以我決定把頭髮梳成乾淨的馬尾,你們喜歡這個look嗎?

Do you guys get those kinda “days” that you are just too lazy and can’t be bother to dress up? Or just don’t know what to wear? I get that ALL THE TIME but I refuse to walk out of my house in sloppy and unfashionable outfits! I am a big believer that you should always look ‘ready’ for all kind of events even if you are only running an errand because you never know who you will be running into! What if you bumped into an ex boyfriends or someone that may offer you an once in a lifetime job opportunity with high salary (lol i dream way too much). But I know better than anyone how difficult and how much effort it takes to look ready at all times. So thank goodness that SWAER LONDON offered me this beautiful pair of shoes this season, Charlotte. You can wear her with the simplest outfits and you will still look so chic! Her shape is edgy like brogues but the floral canvas print gives a young and fun vibe! I think I am falling in love all over again!

I am certain that that it is very easy for you to replicate this outfit! All you need is,

1. a simple white tank top
2. a white shirt (an oversize one will be fun but if you don’t have it, steal it from your boyfriend, brother or your dad! One thing to remember is to fold your sleeves higher than your elbows and you are ready to go!)
3. a pair of blue jeans
4. a pair of chic/comfortable shoes (if you like Charlotte, please visit the fan page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/SWEAR-London-Taiwan/537952669582834)

Now go try to be a lazy yet pretty girl starting from today!

 

不知道愛美的你們會不會有“那幾天”就是懶得花時間打扮+不知道要穿甚麼呢?我呢….我常常有! 但是倔強的我又不想很邋遢&沒型妥協,所以好家在 SWEAR London – Taiwan 在今年春夏出了這雙藍色的帆布牛津鞋,而且她有著一個漂亮又浪漫的名字叫Charlotte! 只要穿上她 不管在簡單輕便的搭配都能瞬間變得很有型喔! 姊姊我真的太崇拜Charlotte了,因為她擁有牛津鞋的帥氣外型 但她的藍色花花帆布面卻透露出少女的可愛俏皮!阿~~~真令我陶醉阿!哈哈哈

今天身上穿的這套應該都能再每個女孩的衣櫃裡找到它們蹤影

1. 簡單的白色背心
2. 普通白色襯衫 (oversize 或是男朋友的都不錯,不過切記要把袖子折到手臂上喔 )
3. 藍色牛仔褲
4.一雙有型又舒服的鞋子( 喜歡Charlotte 的你們也可以去逛逛她的粉絲頁喔https://www.facebook.com/pages/SWEAR-London-Taiwan/537952669582834
