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 | 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.




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


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