Concertina

by cecylia on October 10, 2012

As loyal readers of my blog, you’ll instantly recognise this green blouse (if you don’t, come back more often :) or simply click here to see what I’m on about) but you may not have met my accordion-inspired skirt. Found in a random boutique in Shanghai 5 years ago, its ingenious design of pleated ribbons weaving in an orderly manner on a bed of lace captured my style radar. Skater-skirt style wasn’t in full swing (sorry for the pun) until last summer so it hung patiently in my wardrobbe ’til now…its artistic composition and minimalistic shape has elevated itself from a LBS (Little Black Skirt) to le pièce de résistance (AKA: Hero Skirt). The Lumière*-like candelabra brooch from Miss Bibi (the cutest Parisian jewellery label) and the folded heart ring added some fairy-tale charm to these nightscapes.

长读我博客的朋友,你会认出这件绿色衬衣(如果你不记得,请常来看我的博客:) 或者你可以往这里瞄一眼来唤起你的回忆),但你可能没见过这条‘手风琴’式的裙子。五年前我在上海的一家小店里遇见它,它那倍数的褶丝带精致地绣在花边上,立刻让我迷住了。直到去年夏天溜冰裙式才上潮流,因此这条裙子默默无闻地挂在我的衣房里。现在它从‘一般’ 的黑色短裙提升成我常年最爱的。这金烛台别针和金心戒指是我最爱的法国首饰牌子之一Miss Bibi。 我几年前在巴黎认识了设计师。她的首饰既妩媚又诙谐,有童话故事的品质,正好配达这些夜景色。

Who knew that a Melbourne tram stop shelter could be the backdrop of so much frivolity and drama! Ding Ding! Happy Hump Day lovelies!

Ahh Lumiere! That’s so great. My dorm went to go see Beauty & the Beast, the Musical last year and it was seriously the most amazing thing ever.
