Military March

by cecylia on January 9, 2013

Zinco top / Armand Basi skirt / Vintage necklace / Vintage Christian Dior clutch / Sonia Rykiel shoes

 Was hoping to demonstrate my new-found mantra in life, Keep On Walking, but somehow I look more to be stepping in an unco manner than anything else…Following on from my professed new year’s resolution, I introduce you to 2 very neglected pieces of my wardrobe: a navy top I found in Switzerland and an Armand Basi skirt I adopted from Singapore. Once upon a time, before pink became my colour-in-chief, khaki was the Favourite. Utilitarian, military, neutral, come to think of it, fashion still loves a good khaki. The mini is well-equipped with 4 pockets, large enough to fit my entire life into, but I had to include a vintage clutch for good measure. The perfect outfit to wear to a casual BBQ to take complete advantage of the adjustable waist tie. And afterwards to work off the bangers? Just Keep on Walking.

既然我在这里说起今年我会多穿我衣房里被忽视的衣服,请容许我介绍给你这两件衣服:从瑞士带回来深蓝色的上衣和从新加坡领会来的Armand Basi裙(西班牙牌)。很早以前,我最喜欢的颜色不是粉红色,是深绿色。它是时尚的好颜色,容易配,难弄脏。这条裙子的四个大口袋够装我所有需要的,但为了完整这套衣服我还带了这个抓手包。裙子的腰带能伸缩,我应该穿去参加一个烧烤午餐。

Wow, this is such a simple, well put together outfit, I just love the darker toned colors together like this! (I can’t believe I haven’t thought of wearing burgundy, navy and olive green together, it’s gorgeous.) Your necklace is just the perfect finishing item, it keep the nonchalant look going.

thanks Katie, it was actually not planned at all but I agree these dark tones worked in harmony when teamed together.

I know it’s all about the skirt, and it’s beautiful, but I really like the top! Such a nice outfit, I like the deeper tones with the navy and burgundy :)
