Winter Essential

Winter is the only season which puts me into a painful dilemma ! Honestly I can hardly stand with the coldness here in NY. Wearing something nice would almost be impossible for me as I usually wrap myself up with layers of clothes, wear a pair of leggings under my extra thick pants! But thanks God that he gave me a fairly warmer weather that I had a chance to dress up a little bit on last Friday. I spent my day in Soho doing shopping with my friend, Rebecca and my boy, Philippi. He had come from Las Vegas for a short visit.
I was wearing a fur coat just trying to keep myself warm. Under the coat I was wearing nothing but a simple white blouse. Sometimes I do realize people who wear they furry coats would wrongly wear a very thick-textured clothing under, like a cardigan or a knitwear. But I think when we are doing the mix-and-matching, it’s very important to emphasize and contrast the textures that we are using. This can be extremely critical whether you can create style or not. The fullness of a furry coat won’t work well with the thick cardigan, as it only leads to redundancy. So my little advice about wearing furry coats would be: try to mix and match different textures and you will by chance achieve the contrasting effect that we want! In fact this thick-to-thin contrasting rule does not only apply to the time we wear furry coats but any piece of thick-texture clothing!

 

紐約的冬天真的會令我極度懊惱,  很不容易才會等到天朗氣清的一天可以將自己打扮得稍為漂亮, 不然都要用一件又一件超厚的毛衣包自己起來,再穿上兩條褲子!所以在這邊,一件能夠保暖的毛毛大衣絕對是生活必需品!這是上個禮拜在SOHO逛街的一天 (幸好那天不太冷!)

我之前有留意到很多人在穿這些很厚的大衣時,裡面穿的都是另外一件厚身的上衣/毛衣,但其實如果整體看起來,這樣厚衣+厚褸的穿法會顯得非常累贅,所以我用薄薄的襯衫去配搭這類型的大衣,整體看起來就會有對比作用

—> 大衣穿搭建議:利用不同衣服的材質和厚薄度去制造對比作用,便能較突顯時尚感

You can see I am really doing everything to seize some warmth! Getting a hot Green Tea Latte  from Starbucks would be one of my favorite ways to avoid my hands getting frozen.

Starbucks 的bGreen Tea Latte最近成為了我的新伙伴,但要減肥的女孩們別忙了要叫 “skinny” + “no sugar” 哦

Hi Everyone! This is Christine 🙂  Today I’ve got two important news to announce, and I will start talking about the first one – The New Launch of My Blog,  MOU IN STYLE
Last year I chose to incorporate blogging as a part of my life regardless of my busy schedule.  At the very first beginning I started blogging on www.stylemou.blogspot.com where I take pictures of my everyday life, doing different makeup looks and sharing my skincare information. And now I am starting this blog for sharing a more focused interest in fashion and the particular style that I love and I would wear.
And I would like to start my first post here telling a little story of myself.
By now I have been in New York for half a year (moved from Macao to California in 2012, and moved from California to New York in 2013). At the very beginning I always found myself being frustrated as everything was really disparate from what I encountered in California, the school, the people around, the living pace, etc, but seriously, never for a second that I have ever felt regretful of coming to New York. There’s something very important to me which I ultimately want to pursue, in my life. I just think that everyone in his/her life at some point must come to a time, a time for which they are able to vision their future and realize their true callings. Being lucky is not what would make you discover this turning point in your life, you have to take your courage and realize every single strength and limit you possess and continuously try to improve them. Never be afraid of knowing a “weak” you! And along the way when you pursue your goal, remember to make yourself open to any challenges.  It is true that everything we do comes with a cost, and that’s why we always have to make choices with utmost discretion, but that does not give you a stand of not trying new things just because you simply do not what to take a risk. We are just human, we cannot forever be wise and make the perfect choices, so I hope that everyone who’s reading this blog can remember this spirit – Be brave and go for what you want.
OK, enough for my story, and now I am going to tell you about the second news – The New Launch of Mouinstyle Fabrique
Accompanying with the new launch of this blog, I have also launched a new page on Facebook which is the Mouinstyle Fabrique.
I aim to create a place where you are going to be transformed into a voguish woman who has her own style and attitude. In Mouinstyle Fabrique you are able to get access to our most edgy womenswear and accessories which are actually available for sale! So stay tuned and don’t forget to click “like” and “share”! You can also add the page to your interest group so you will get immediate access to our latest news. Your support is really crucial to me, and I would like to express my genuine gratitude for those who have been supporting me unconditionally. :’)

Chinese Version…..
Hello!今天我有兩個消息想跟大家分享,先講第一個,我開始了我新的Fashion Blog — MOUINSTYLE了!
上一年我開始在www.stylemou.blogspot.com 跟大家分享很多我平日的生活照,也會跟大家分享美容化妝的資訊,但一直沒有好好跟大家分享一些關於fashion方面的東西,所以現在開創這個blog的意念就是想跟大家分享多一些這方面的題材,除帶給大家分享我自己喜歡的時尚風格, 我也會分享我在美國的生活。
來了New York 大半年, 剛在這邊生活真的不太習慣, 跟上一年我在California實在有很大分差!這邊的人怎樣說也不是太友善,生活節奏很快,人來人往的感覺令到我有點孤獨,但說真的,我從來沒有後悔來到這邊,都是因為我有一個很明確的目標,一個令我可以全力去奮鬥的理由!現在我的生活很充實,除了上學,我會在外面報讀關於FASHION的課程,而我也非常幸運的找到了一份很難得的Fashion Styling的實習,見識到這個 Industry很多很多人和事,所以我很希望這個blog將會記錄著我繼續奮鬥的過程,而看這個blog的你也會感受到這種精神然而努力去追隨你自己的夢想!
而第二個我想分享的消息是
