When In Doubt Wear Red

As you know, I have a knack for creating unique, quirky and elegant outfits. Being a clown at heart has its perks. Recently a dear friend, Leeyong (Style Wilderness), gifted me with this vintage frilly top. Consumed with one part gratitude and one part fear, I must have smiled with a quiver. It’s a crimson trap! The bi-coloured frilly lapels sneered and taunted, flashing themselves in the breeze. ‘Errr…Leeyong, I’m not sure about this one...’ I was ready for defeat, but my good friend, full of confidence replied ‘If anyone can pull this off, you can.’ So what do you think? Do you see a clown or a lady?

常读我博客的,你们知道我的特长在于服装搭配。我的款式带一点优雅且不拘一格,有点意想不到. 最近一个好朋友送给我一件衣服。接过一看,我的第一感觉是又气又好笑,好像小丑穿的,多夸张啊!是个红色金色的时装陷阱!我有点不好意思收下,但我朋友立即说了一声:‘就算这世上没人能穿这件衣服,你能!’她对我的信心令我不但接受了礼物,而且拍了照片让你们来判断。。。小丑还是女郎?

Also, over the weekend I was featured on the Fashion Exposed blog, have a squiz [HERE] and let me know your thoughts!
