Cross My Heart

by cecylia on October 24, 2012

I rarely wear black, but when I do (See here and here), I’m quite serious about the getup. Have had this 40s frock for the longest time. Wore it to a funeral and my graduation. The irony. But it wasn’t until this little number met its match in the accessories department that I allowed its feature on the blog. Recently I paid Parisian Street Society a visit, and ooh la la, is it not every French accessory addict’s dream-come-true?

我不经常穿黑色,但当我穿的时候(还记得这件,和这件吗?)我挺认真的。拥有这条四十年代的黑裙许多年了,曾穿去过一个葬礼和我的毕业典礼,多滑稽啊。但唯独我找到佩得它的首饰我才肯让它出现在我的博客上。最近我拜访了Parisian Street Society (译:巴黎街头协会),如果你爱古色的,独一无二的欧洲首饰,这个店就是你的梦想成真。

Naturally I had to pose this cross-laden ensemble in front of a church, and none other than the majestic St Paul’s Cathedral.  To many Melbournians, St Paul’s is an iconic house of prayer and sanctuary, and an architectural semi-gothic marvel.  For me, it is also my old stomping ground where my friends and I performed 3-part Cantatas during our youth.

What do you think of the return of the ‘Cross’ trend?

既然我穿的是十字架首饰,当然我得站在一所教堂面前。这是墨尔本最有名的大教堂, 市中心的主要景点,也是我小时候和朋友常表演三步颂歌的场所。
