Just like every typical weekend I’d spend one day walking around this city with an exciting heart. It’s been more than 3 years since I moved to New York, but thankfully this place always has something new hiding and waiting for you to explore! Whether it’s a fancy coffee shop or an invigorating juice bar! This is the outfit that I wore last Saturday. And yes……I wore a pair of  striped wide legs despite of the hot and humid air.
And here I’d love to share a little story of my life..
There was once a short period in my life where I was miserably alienating myself to this place. To even think about it right now I just want to laugh at myself for being so foolish how I used to keep myself feeling deflated all the time. I was living by myself, going to college full-time and doing an internship. Although I know this sounds as fulfilling as it should be, somehow I was feeling very empty and alone..
However, the silver lining came to me and everything changed after I started to persuade myself going out on weekends instead of snuggling in bed all day with my homework and frosted flakes chocolate cereal (Yes, I used to have it as my daily snack.) And what did I usually do outside? Well, I ran along the hudson river, spent time in some of my favorite museums, finished homework in some of the finest cafes and maybe shop around Papyrus. I pretty much walked to everywhere in the city instead of taking the subway so that I could walk past many different neighborhoods. It’s true that at the end of the day I was usually dog-tired and was literally dragging my feet back to home! But I’d still feel thankful that I took every step to discover and be inspired that “life is worth living, doing, feeling and being in it.”
Ever since I seriously hate to stay at home during weekend even in my busiest time in life! Hopefully everyone who’s reading my experience would be encouraged and to take herself out too. Go interact and spend some quality time with your own city, no matter which part of the world you are living in!

 

Yours Truly,

Christine

SLEEPWALKING IN TOWN

 Almost everyone has asked me the same question: Why are you putting on your …pajama? Yes, I won’t deny that this silver blouse looks exactly like what I have been seeing worn by my mother every night back at home 4 years ago, but unfortunately, this is also what I’d like to wear for this season.

Somewhere inside my styling mind along the transformation path from a girl to an independent woman lies a forcing signal that I should get rid of all the girly minidresses.

Hope that everyone who’s reading this blog right now had spent a great time in Valentines! For me this valentines feels really different yet special because I am no longer in a relationship, so I have decided to share a little of my inside world about being an independent individual after ending my 6-year relationship.

Greeting from the beautiful Highline in NYC!
Here is a simple sharing of one summer afternoon when I was wandering with my best friend Polly in the city
For a truly busy “Citadin” like everyone of us,
when would you try to stop and admire the simple yet profound pleasure your surrounding scenery  has served you?

NYFW Day 1 & 2

final title page (for blog)
Whenever it comes to the beginning of September you start to see slender girls with perfect body and heights walking down high streets and occupying the balcony seats of some famous restaurants, then all we know that, Fashion Week is here.
This year I am lucky enough to work as a PR at the fashion week, and I can never deny that the whole event is simply amazing!
Due to the issue of working attire requirement me and my colleagues all need to dress in black, so I was actually thinking about how to make some fun and get rid of the impression of boredom that professional black attire usually gives people.
Well the whole key is easy – make it CHIC and SOPHISTICATED, and CLEAN – the usual and daily mortal that is always implemented in my daily style and clothing, effortless enough! right? :p
每逢到了九月就會開始在街上看到一堆一堆特別有氣質的模特充斥在大街上和露天咖啡店的全位上,那你就會知道時裝週又來了
這一年很幸運可以找到在時裝週工作的實習,而我真的只可以用amazing來形容時裝週令我見識到的很多人和事,也了解了很多內裡運作的程序
由於工作規定了我們要穿全黑的服裝,其他人都直接穿黑色西裝了, 但我自己既然有那麼多衣服都是黑的,心想就穿特別一點,不要穿黑西裝西裙那麼沉悶吧
如果上班時要穿特別一點但又有服務限制,那其實只需要簡單的記住兩點就ok: “簡約”和”俐落”, 保持些微專業的感覺就對了
飾物也只能戴簡約風格的
