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. 
 

風尚是一種生活品味的投射

因此生活即是風尚,風尚便是品味

這就是我想實踐的生活方式

"Every article I put on my body, there is some thoughts to it. It evokes a mood.
That's when you know style is something you put as a priority in your life."

I used to question myself on the fact that I spend quite some time getting ready before heading out that door. The fact that I am willing to wake up an hour earlier and make sure I look presentable before facing the world seems to be a bit silly to some. I used to be so conscious about how people value how fashion is involved in my life. You may laugh at me for being so sensitive but till this day, I still don't think it was a pointless worry. I am pretty sure there're people out there are worrying about the same thing.

We are constantly struggling with people's judgements because we are all born vulnerably, and we grow thick through passing time. I learn that later in my life that I can actually be myself and people will find it appreciating. I was very used to receiving many "don'ts" from others and forgot what I really valued. That's when I started watching youtube videos. It was a whole new world to me because there are people out there just like me, who would spend time on their looks and really consider it as an self-expression.  

以前常常懷疑自己,當別人都說愛漂亮不對的時候,我竟然也照單全收,認為花時間搭配衣服或是化妝很浪費時間。老是覺得,別人在心裡偷笑,認為太注重外表的人都很膚淺。我的確是有點敏感,但是我相信這個疑問對很多人來說都不陌生。我總是習慣沈默的接受別人告訴我什麼是對錯,即是心裡很多疑問,卻從來不說。經過了許多時間和環境改變,我才發現我無需對於自己重視的事情感到可恥。寧願早一點起床準備,並沒有很可笑,喜歡穿戴整齊的出門,並沒有不對。我在意的事情,並沒有干預到誰。


How weird, to me, seeing her path of growing her foundation of success, including integrated video skills and gained confidence throughout theses years. I am by no means to make myself sounded like I know her very well but only to remind myself I am capable as well. That's what a role model is suppose to arise, right? :)  

看著一個人成長是很奇妙的感覺。從只有三支影片開始,建立的大量觀眾,大幅進步的錄像以及編輯,還有內容的呈現以及質感,都自然不在話下。我沒有要攀親帶故的意思,但,這樣的成果,不斷的提醒著我,自己也可以辦的到。很多時候就是需要那多一點的壓力,多一點的強迫,多一點的嘗試,那麼多一點,才會有多一點的進步。



Yes, it was like a dream came true that I got to hang out with Jenn Im from Clothes Encounters. It was my first time meeting her and she is just as lovely as she is in her videos. Talking to her is just so inspiring. Her professional attitude and friendly kindness made this encounter purely a pleasure. Not to mention her gorgeous beauty.  

所以當我可以和 Jenn 見面的時候,我內心感受非常複雜。和影片中的一樣的親切可人,還多了一股朋友般的輕鬆,當然專業的態度也是有的。見面之後我心想,這樣的人會成功不是沒有原因的。重點是她超正我好害羞啊。
