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

Of course vintage is not a trend. It is not just about second-handed clothing if you ask me; it's about the lifestyle, the manner, the social background, and more. I've been looking for a good denim dress at flea markets in San Francisco for a while but in vain. It was love at first sight when I spotted this dress while rummaging in Williamsburg flea market; I was already bargaining within a eye blink.

I know people usually opt for modern pieces if an event like fashion week is taking place. But the retro spirit has a special spot in my heart. Manifesting an old piece into a new silhouette with some personally attitude is all I'm about and this is my contribution.

復古絕對不是一個風潮而已。不僅僅是穿上二手服飾或是復古「風格」就足以成立,每個年代背後的生活態度、社會背景、流行元素都需要多加琢磨。在舊金山的跳蚤市場尋覓許久卻始終沒有下落的單寧背心洋裝,竟然在紐約威廉斯堡找到了,第一眼看見,下一秒已經在殺價了。

許多人會選擇較為摩登的品牌以及服飾剪裁來參與時裝周這種場合,但懷舊對我來說不只是一種情懷。配上同樣二手的短跟,把領巾當成髮束,提上個小包,復古單品配上一點態度穿出個人風格,是我向過往來不及參與的年代致敬。
