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

Outfit | We'll Always Have Paris


The most known quote from the classic film Casablanca (1942). If I'll have to paint this back and white film into colors, it'll be in deep purple and dark grey on the spectrum. I've only been to Paris once in my life but it is weirdly associated with gloomy lonesomeness; maybe it has to do with the life back then and it was indeed a struggle. The feeling has making its comeback these days.

A lot of things have happened. People passing in a shocking way and the stress level has turning itself into a unbearable pain around my shoulders. I am feeling my faith is loosing its battle with humanity. We've learned enough of saying goodbye yet every time is the hardest one. Trying not to be too gushy or falling like a victim but I am still coping with the fact that the deceased one will never be there ever again. I don't know how to digest that feeling scratching inside. 

And just like that, a message popped up the other day when I was picking a color for my manicure and this one says, We'll Always Have Paris. It intrinsically linked to all the questions I was breeding these days. Life can never be masterfully controlled by mundane, but nothing has really existed and none has actually faded away. We could lose nothing if we once had it and cherished it wholeheartedly. So be gone and be everlasting.

經典電影北非諜影裡的經典台詞。如果要把這部黑白電影上色的話,我想我會選擇濃郁的深紫色或是深灰色。不曉得為什麼,對於巴黎的印象就是這樣的色彩。

最近世界好不安寧,社會充滿動盪,生命漫佈著不確定,生活也遇上了瓶頸。關於失去,不管經歷過幾次,每一次道別都像是第一次,信念彷彿漸漸沈落在不知名的失望裡。即便日常生活照舊,內心裡還是有一股瘙癢的感覺。

那天在擦指甲油的時候,不經意地挑著顏色,看了一下色號與起名,心裡愣了一下,「我們將永遠擁有巴黎」,心裡好像有些什麼突然想通了。沒有什麼是真正能被擁有的,也沒有什麼會真的逝去。逝去的,不代表失去,怎麼可能失去呢?


Recently I've been digging the oval shape on the tips for it's feminine and sophisticated look, as well as the elongated fingers.   

最近喜歡上把指甲修成橢圓形,很柔美的知性,視覺效果上,手指看起來也比較修長。

So deep in the aubergine color that even the scent of the day is the Tom Ford Velvet Orchid to go with the tonality.  

深迷茄紫色,連香水也是同色系的天鵝絨蘭花,又濃又嗆的,冷風裡特別適合的香氣。
