All White Outfit on 25th Birthday

By on June 24, 2017

“Life is about constantly learning and embracing new things, so I should strive to keep a part of my mind pure, as if it is a white piece of paper, ready to take notes and draw pictures on.”

This is my 25th birthday celebration. I feel that 25 is an age that is still young, but not that young anymore. For some Asian cultures, it is considered getting old! The highly conservative ones believe that it is an appropriate age to get married and have children. I want to express that I am still young, yet acknowledge that I’m also aging and maturing. So, I invited all my friends to come dressed in white, to reflect on our eternal innocence regardless of our age. I want to be reminded that life is about constantly learning and embracing new things, so I should strive to keep a part of my mind pure, as if it is a white piece of paper, ready to take notes and draw pictures on. I treasure my life experiences, but I believe that imposing what I already know, walking around the world with my mind like a piece of paper full of notes is simply unfair for the new things that I will encounter.

The fabric is light and breathable, and I feel so fresh.

Another urban chic look from the Hong Kong trip.

Bold Blue Layers and Classic Beige Coat

By on January 15, 2017

This is my first blog post, ever!

Today I visited Châtillon-d’Azergues, a small medieval village in the Beaujolais area. The region is famous for its golden architecture constructed by golden-colored stones, hence the name Pays des Pierres Dorées (Country of the Golden Stones).

I believe wearing some cobalt blue will complement the various shades of golden yellow. So, I have decided to wear my warm ultramarine turtleneck from Uniqlo with the midnight blue long cardigan coat from Zara. I have always loved the soft, tiny glitters scattered across the coat. They give such a polished and understated glam touch.
