Style Diary: A day in Seoul

posted in: LIFESTYLE 生活, LOOKS 搭配 | 0

My best friend Samia (@mialiamani) has been living in Seoul for almost 3 years and is planning to move back to Canada soon. I had to see her one last time before she’s even further away from me, so I went to visit her last weekend.

 

我好朋友Samia(@mialiamani)已经住在首尔快三年了,不过她下个月打算回加拿大发展。她搬走之前,我准备了去看她一次,所以上个周末就去了首尔找她玩儿。

 

 

Friday night, after almost losing my backpack holding my macbook, android phone, LV wallet, money… basically my life, Samia and I went to Dongdaemun and shopped until around 5:30 am. We were pretty delirious by the end, but we both managed to pick up a really nice PU patent skirt and flared sleeve top.

 

周五晚上,差一点把我人生中最重要的几个东西丢了(macbook, 手机, LV钱包, 钱…基本上我的一切),之后我和Samia一起去了东大门,逛了到大概凌晨5点半。最后我们已经累得不行,不过领了一件很好看的PU光皮半身裙还有一件流行风格的喇叭袖衬衫。

 

 

Saturday we woke up early, despite only having napped from our shopping expedition, and made our way to the THENCE showroom to check out their SS/17 collection. We spent the rest of the day exploring cool shops, eating yummy food, and almost getting rioted by the impeached President Park’s supporters while sipping coffee in the usually calm and super cool café, LUFT.

 

虽然我们只稍微打了几个小时的扽,但周六一大早就去THENCE的showroom看看他们的SS/17系列。完了之后,我们继续了逛好看的店铺,吃好吃的东西。还有在LUFT咖啡店喝咖啡的时候也差一点被支持韩国前总统朴槿惠的人民暴乱。

Here is where to find stuff from inside the video.

以下视频内可以看到我之前所提到的东西。

Picked up this incense by local brand IOMU (@iomu_) that smells amazingggg. I’ve been using it every day since. It isn’t too strong but make my room smell cozy and relaxing. The packaging is perfectly on point as well.

 

我从当地牌子IOMU(@iomu_) 那买了些特别香的熏香。从我回上海了到现在,我天天都会点亮一根。味道没有很重,刚刚好,会让我感觉很舒服和放松。东西的包装也十分美的。

 

 

Already can’t wait until my next visit!!

已经等不及我下次能去!!

Visiting Mohme’s Studio and FW16 Collection

Mohme is a fashion brand based in Shanghai and started by two lovely French ladies, Helene and Maude. Mixing feminine and masculine, French cuts influenced by Chinese lifestyle, the designer duo create original quality pieces that are great for mixing and matching.

 

Mohme是Helene和Maude两个法国女人在上海创造的一个服装品牌。这两位设计师喜欢把男女的风格混合在一起,还有她们会把中国生活方式的灵感放在法式设计的剪裁上面。因此,她们的系列充满好搭配的独特性和有质感的衣服。

 

The two of them were kind enough to invite me over to their cozy in-home studio to check out their very first official Fall/Winter collection. From a selection of leather skirts, soft knits, luxe outerwear and more, I picked out a couple of my favorite pieces from the collection and put them together in this lookbook video:

 

Helene和Maude很热情的邀请我去她们温馨的自家工作室看看Mohme第一个秋冬系列。本季用了许多皮革包裙,柔软的毛衣,和奢华的外装。在这么多选择之中,我选了以下面lookbook视频里面最喜欢的几个单品:

 

 

 

 

I’d like to take a moment here to thank the two of them for a very fun afternoon playing dress up, and for rearranging furniture/climbing on things to film this. We should have filmed the filming of…

 

我想趁这个机会感谢一下她们两个让这个周末下午变得这么好玩儿,穿穿衣服和爬上不同的家具来拍视频。其实在我们拍摄的过程中,肯定很搞笑。。。

 

Here are some more looks from their FW16 Lookbook.

这有更多秋冬16 Lookbook里面的搭配。

Osaka – Kyoto Fall Lookbook

posted in: LOOKS 搭配 | 0

Four years ago, I went to Osaka and Kyoto with some friends for a short holiday and the whole trip felt like a dream. I’ve been wanting to go back with my mom ever since, and last week I finally had the chance to do so. All I can say is that it was just as magical as the first time that I went.

四年前,我和几个朋友一起去了大阪和京都旅游。回想这几天的行程,感觉像做梦一样。自从那个时候,我很想带我妈妈一起回去看看。上周终于有机会跟妈妈一起重游日本,给了我跟我妈妈很棒的回忆。

 

Since I’ve decided to start making more videos for the blog, I decided to take advantage of the beautiful and iconic places I visited while on my trip, and share a travel lookbook with everyone.

我决定利用这次日本之旅开始多拍视频。在这景点给大家拍个lookbook。

 

 

 

 

OSAKA – KYOTO TRAVEL LOOKBOOK

大阪 – 京都旅游LOOKBOOK

 

Look 1 @ Osaka Castle

搭配 1 @ 大阪城

fullsizerender-13-copy

 

What I wore:

  • Puffy Skirt – Urban Revivo
  • Loose Tank – MSGM
  • Shoes – Adidas Stan Smith

 

Why I like it?

I’m not a huge girly girl, especially not on a casual day, but I have a new found love for pairing girly skirts with loose Tees or Knits and a pair of running shoes. While adding a feminine statement to my outfit, I keep it toned down, cool, and comfortable.

 

穿了什么?

  • 蓬蓬裙– Urban Revivo
  • 宽松背心– MSGM
  • 鞋子– Adidas Stan Smith

 

我为什么喜欢?

我一般不太喜欢穿的很女人,特别是平常休闲的日子中。不过我最近发现我很喜欢穿很女生的半身裙搭配宽松的休闲T恤或者毛衣还有运动鞋。这样的搭配不仅有女人味,也较低调和舒服。

 

Look 2 @ Gion, Kyoto

搭配 2 @ 竟都市祗园

What I wore:

  • Black Jeans – COS
  • Cozy Sweatshirt – Stussy

 

Why I like it?

I got this sweatshirt at the Stussy store in Kyoto. I don’t have any cotton crewnecks other than in black or grey, so this blush color stood out for me. It’s one of the only things I bought in Japan and so I have great memories when I wear it.

 

穿了什么?

  • 黑牛仔裤– COS
  • 舒服的卫衣– Stussy

 

我为什么喜欢?

我在京都的Stussy店就买了这件卫衣。除了黑和灰色,我没有其他的绵圆领套头卫衣,所以这件浅粉色就比较出众了。这是我在日本买的这么几个东西之一,所以每次穿它就会有很多好的回忆。

 

Look 3 @ % Arabica, Kyoto

What I wore:

  • Long Satin Bomber – Urban Revivo
  • White Tee – H&M (Mens)
  • Wool Culottes – Sense of Place

 

Why I like it?

I always feel really good in this kind of monochrome outfit. It’s my safe place. Even though there aren’t any colors, the different shades and textures of each item give the outfit dimension. I’m also obsessed with these wool culottes. They’re a perfect fall to winter piece, will look awesome with chunky knits and long coats, AND they have an elastic waist (hello food!).

 

穿了什么?

  • 长丝绸飞行员外套– Urban Revivo
  • 白T恤– H&M (男款)
  • 羊毛阔腿裤– Sense of Place

 

我为什么喜欢?

我每次穿黑白风的全身搭配就感觉很好,算是给我带来一种安全感吧。虽然这个搭配没有颜色,但是每件衣服不同的色调和材质把全搭配很有质感。另外,我特别喜欢这件裤子,非常适合上海的换季,也很好搭配打毛衣和长的大衣。最关键可能是它的腰围是松紧带(食物,你好!)

 

Look 4 @ The Golden Pavilion + Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, Kyoto

搭配 4 @京都市金阁寺 + 嵐山嵯竹林

What I wore:

  • Vintage Military Jacket – Customized vintage shop that disappeard…
  • Chunky White Knit – H&M
  • Silk Pajama Style Pants – Urban Revivo

 

Why I like it?

This outfit has a mix of different style pieces that all kind of fit together nicely somehow. It’s a mix of vintage and modern, soft and tough.

 

穿了什么?

  • Vintage 军事风外套– 现在消失了的小定制vintage店铺
  • 白色针织毛衣– H&M
  • 睡衣风格的裤装– Urban Revivo

 

我为什么喜欢?

这个搭配混合了不同风格的衣服,一起穿上效果还是蛮好配的。是一种现代复古风,柔软和强硬的平衡。

 

Look 5 @ Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kyoto

搭配 5 @京都市伏见稻荷大社

 

fullsizerender-13-copy-2

 

What I wore:

  • Super Oversized Shirt – Taobao (here)

Why I like it:

When I first got this shirt in the mail, I thought I had failed so hard and bought a thinner even bigger version of my high school science lab coat. After trying different ways to style it, I actually found different ways to wear it in a way I really like. This is one of the ways, with the sleeves rolled and the shirt kept open, kind of like a light coat.

 

 

穿了什么?

  • 超大衬衫 – Taobao (这里)

我为什么喜欢?

刚收到这件衣服的快递的时候,我一看以为我真失败了,有点像我高中的时候要穿的实验室外套加大尺码。试穿了不同的造型之后就发现我居然很喜欢。这次是我造型的方式之一,开着穿和袖子转起来了,像一个薄的外套。

 

 

DIY: Gucci Inspired Patch Denim Jacket

posted in: LIFESTYLE 生活, LOOKS 搭配 | 0

With the release of Gucci’s FW16 collection, and the launch of the Gucci DIY service at its Milan location, all heads were turned and hearts won over by the romantic look of embroidery and patchwork. Many brands and designers have followed suite, adorning denim and outerwear with different patches and designs.

 

当Gucci 推出了秋冬16系列之后,又在米兰开了一家全新的个性化DIY定制服务,这使大家都感兴趣,爱上了他们浪漫风格的补丁和刺绣设计。从此,许多品牌和设计师也用了补丁和刺绣细节的设计在本季的牛仔和外衣上。

ww.gucci.com

 

Of course, Gucci and many of the other designers offering this style of item this season come at a hefty price. On the other hand, patches and jean jackets are not hard to get your hands on and make for this easy DIY!

当然,包括Gucci,其他只要有提供这个风格单品的品牌也卖得不便宜。反之,牛仔外套和补丁分开买也没有很困难,所以这就是一个很好的DIY机会!

 

What you’ll need:

  • A denim jacket (I used an old one that I bought from a thrift shop)
  • Patches
    I bought mine from Taobao HERE, but websites like ebay or etsy are bound to have a big selection too.
    If you choose adhesive patches, you won’t need to sew them on, however they will be more permanent.
    I chose non-adhesive so that I can take them off once the trend dies out.
  • Pins, needles, and thread
  • Paint and paint brush (optional)

你会需要:

  • 牛仔外套 (我用了之前在二手店买的vintage外套)
  • 补丁贴
  • 我在这个淘宝店买了:HERE
    如果你选用带胶的补丁贴,你就不会需要缝制,但如果有一天你想把补丁拿下来的话,就会比较难。我选了无胶的布丁贴,万一这个风格过期了,我还可以把补丁拆下来。
  • 别针,缝衣针,线
  • 颜料和画笔 (可选)

Nowww… 不像我一般就拍照片给你们看怎么做,这次我很期待和大家分享我第一次拍DIY的视频!!如果喜欢的话,请告诉我,我会尽量多拍拍。

 

(QQ Video for those in China || 腾讯视频)

Step 1: Choose your patches

第一步:选补丁

Step 2: Customize your patches (optional)

diy-gucci-inspired-patch-jean-jacket-02

 

Step 3: Design the placement of the patches

第三步:决定补丁的位置在外套上

 

diy-gucci-inspired-patch-jean-jacket-03

 

 

Step 4: Pin them down

第四步:用别针定住

Step 5: Sew!   *Tip: Keep a loose stitch if you plan on eventually taking the patches off

第五步:缝制! *如果你想到时候把补丁拿下来,就缝的松一点,这样会比较好拆下。
