san francisco, style, fashion, travel, lifestyle curated by Ariel Tzu-Chi

Fashion is about projecting where you're going in life.

Therefore, life is fashion, fashion is style.

That's the lifestyle I am producing. 




Outfit | Gentlewoman

I'd say a large percent of my style inspirations are by androgyny. Dropping the names along that line like Grandpa Style and Zanita; who mingle menswear details so briskly and looking ferociously sharp. I sincerely admire the dynamic and upright manly vibe coming from these women; it's finer, and simpler than "dressing like one". I always enjoy to install a little bit of that debonair-ness onto myself. A pair of Dr. Martens with a flowy dress, or sock-up all my feminine culottes. I'm not simply trying to look boyish, but feeling confident and comfortable in aforementioned clothing combination. I like my style to be cool-chic, a little bit whimsical, and a little bit playful. And to be even more honest, I have no idea how to dress like a "girl"- I don't know how to walk in heels; lacey body con dress is not my forte and sexy is probably the least expected adjective to describe my style. But I like me, and I like being me.

中性風格裡那種雌雄同體的個性我很喜歡,幾個自己喜歡的部落客像是 Grandpa Style 和 Zanita 都是箇中好手。相當喜歡她們身上那種,除了穿著以外,來自性格上英挺的男子氣概。比如說我喜歡把洋裝穿得很中性,馬丁鞋或是配上襪子,總是在想方法平衡服飾上的柔性,畢竟女性柔美不太適合我,一點點男孩子氣讓我感到比較自在。不穿太緊身的衣服,蕾絲高跟鞋等等的女性特徵與我無關,也從不追求性感。我聽說有的男人很美麗,有的女人很帥氣,我指的是內心。我呢,有自信當個內心帥氣的人。如果妳也是,請繼續努力。
