If you ask me what is my favourite colour, that could be the hardest question to me. I love bright colours: red, pink, blue, purple… the latest item on my wish list is the Urban Decay Electric Palette! You can’t imagine how much I love those vivid combinations. However I’m always a fan of simple and practical looks as well. Because, as you may know, the winds of fashion change their direction every second. And for the people who are picky about colours (like myself), there might be more than 10 different types of red; who knows which one is gonna be the next trend?
我一直以来都是个有色彩选择困难症的人。如果有人非要问我最喜欢的颜色是什么， 我可能会纠结一会儿然后把顺位前五名说出来，然后加上“此排名不分前后”。我还记得最近跟阿布说我喜欢Urban Decay那个五彩缤纷的电光眼影盘得到了怎样一个大白眼。但是色彩纠结这件事儿同时导致了我买衣服的时候倾向简单实用的色彩搭配。首先是我喜欢干净简洁的整体造型。再者，我记得在哪里看到过，张艺谋拍英雄的时候跟日本来的服装编导说要红色，结果人家拿了出来40多种红色让他选择。在时尚界也是一样，今天是大红色明天是橘红色，谁又能预测明年的秀场什么颜色横空出世？
The same as the structure of the outfit. For example, the boyfriend style was so popular for such a long time. However, how many normal girls (by normal I mean you are not as tall and slim as Miranda Kerr or Ming Xi) can bring the essential bit of the style, ‘feminine and sexy’, into their looks? Baggy and loose jeans with a light colour will look good with a clean and tight top, but you will definitely look pregnant if you match it with a loose hoodie that doesn’t show your neck and chest. I’m not being mean to those who are obsessed by a style which doesn’t fit them. All I want to do is to suggest an alternative.
As you may know, everybody goes through a period when you are obsessed by ‘the shorter the better’. So was I. I bought this black jumper dress 4 years ago before I came to Sydney. I didn’t even wear it once, because at the time I thought it’s too long for me. However, I started to realise that to wear less doesn’t equate to sexy at all! The design around the waist shows the body shape but not too tight to show people your stomach; the softness of the material brings out the feminine side of you; the length which I struggled with before can match every occasion: going out with your boyfriend, hanging out with girlfriends, or even a casual business meeting!
