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

Got a chance to visit many lovely cafes while I was in Tainan, Taiwan. I always consider Tainan as a twin city of San Francisco - for the intimacy on culture and the appreciation of retro vibe as well as the laid-back-don't-care attitude of the residents. With the growth of independent business, there are more and more old houses transformed into a beautifully renovated cafes, restaurant, or B&B in Tainan, whereas the old fashion remain well-preseved. People now understand better and value carefully with the importance and beauty of the aged and adopt it well. That's definitely a good sign.  

一直覺得台南跟舊金山很像,除了豐富的歷史痕跡,還有城市裡那揮之不去的老風味,加上當地人那股無所謂的氣息,實在是如出一撤。

老屋翻新在台灣是個新風潮,雖然以台灣的文化精神來說,這也許只是趕個流行,但能見到許多文化研究人士或愛好者擁有發揮的舞台,讓這股觀光文化能夠深植人心,也不外乎是件好事。我覺得所謂的「文青現象」也許是個嘲諷,但若這般裝腔作勢能讓文化水平提升,那也沒有不可。即使飽和度已經趨近巔峰,但希望在那之前,重視文化藝術的觀念能夠來得及紮根。

Let me spare you from going detail about the bits and bots about the places I went and how I feel. I am never a expository person. I can stressed less on how much I care about the captivation of style - lifestyle it is. Everything in life rally a unique lifestyle; fashion is only a wee part of it; that no one can share the exact same one. Developing the right attitude and the determination of "doing" is undoubtedly more crucial than the price or review. Good or bad, you gotta experience it yourself than call it your own. Otherwise, you should just stay home and read books, at least knowledge don't cheat. 

我不是寫遊記的人,這類文章,不是要賣弄人生,而是想要提供一個商店形象的參考而已。東西好不好吃,飲料好不好喝,應該都比不上生活態度的重要。所謂的文化素養,並不是真的只是裝腔作勢就可以達成,而是社會環境(固定因素)與市場消費(可變因素)反映在自身身上的生活步調。多看書補充知識還是比較重要吧,我是這麼認為。
