As you might notice already, I am BOLD enough to try out trends, play w/ styles, and MELLOW enough to keep my ensemble less provocative! :)
Finally my ultimate search for a perfect pair of oxford flat has come to a good end.
The French designer: Anne Valerie Hash.The color is called terranova pink. In fact, the shoes look very "TAUPE" to my gals friends. I know, they are bias, they would do their best to associate any look-similar color w/ taupe!! ^O^
I don't think I need oxford shoes in 10 years...hah....
I met this lady, Soon, in the store while I picked up my shoes. She, at first, is reluctant/shy for me to take her picture....right...who am I???, not Sartorialist, and saying she is not young anymore. After a short chat, she told me that she is also a designer. As a matter of fact, she handpicks the fabric in NYC and draw the pattern of her own clothes afterward. The green hooded top and underneath purple knitting turtleneck is made by her own hand!!! Genius!!
Her earlier response: I am not young anymore..... made me ponder while driving back home. Well, life is sweeter if you look into everything in an artistic way!!!!! We all get old eventually, don't we!! :)
I asked my tailor to sew that crochet tube dress for me from some vintage fabric i bought.
I love the contrast of satin green and cotton green details in the back of this hooded top.
Her heels is one reason that I want to shoot her.
Love her taste!
Love her taste!
Somehow I look very stiff in this one.
Today, I found a new Japanese Brand, Toga. I was actually checking out some clothes w/ lace, and petal decor. and then found this interesting design inspired by Ancient Roman Clothing...
Toga pulla was a dark toga worn strictly in times of mourning.
The toga picta was a special all purple toga embroidered with gold thread worn by a Roman general during a triumphal parade. Julius Caesar later adopted it as part of his regular dress and the emperors followed suit by using this type during many state occasions. The picta was likely adapted from the aptly named toga purpura, an all-purple toga worn by the early kings.
Those are the basic style!!
Look closer.... the white calf bangles look alike mini shin guards!!! ^O^
In general, I think I like toga picta inspired style better!!
Now I am sure my Givenchy New V tote will arrive next Monday....... patience is all I needed right now!! ^O^
Have a good evening!!xoxo Rachel
