If you’ve been living under a rock or haven’t picked up a fashion magazine in the past 2 years, then I can still trick you into believing that this is a ‘sports luxe’ look. The new sporty getup is just as its name suggests, quite glam and couture-inspired. Quite unachievable methinks. Hence why my attempt to look anything sporty or luxurious isn’t all that convincing. But I have an excuse. I still maintain that the term ‘sports luxe’ is an oxymoron. Exercise is not a luxury. It cannot be. It involves exertion, hard work, exercising of the will (the most stubborn muscle we possess), pushing oneself through physical and psychological barriers, sweating, and wearing things containing lycra. I rest my case. In my youth, I was a sprinter and a hockey player. Didn’t play any more sport other than that. I wasn’t good at chess either but I did enjoy the Beep Test. I’ve never set foot in the gym, except to pose with dumbbells. Thankfully the only exercise I did at Mansion Hotel & Spa at Werribee Park (check out my previous post of the magnificent mansion here) was a massage. I exercised. In reverse.

So how do you achieve the sports luxe look you ask? Well where there’s a will, there will always be a way. A way via Net-a-Porter of course. All style roads lead to Net-a-Porter. To actually channel Sports Luxe, aside from owning a cap and white pumps or metallic heels, you may want to invest in a Bomber, embrace Perforations (perfect imperfections aka ‘holes’), add a splash of white and slide into a pair of sneakers. But if you’re a gym junkie, you won’t want to go past[HERE].
This is my 2nd post for Mansion Hotel & Spa at Werribee Park. The Friday night special still stands (until the end of April). Just mention my name (Hi, my name is Cecylia if you’re new around here) and you’ll be charged $199 instead of $350. That’s a saving for an entire set of 6 Lanvin Russian dolls!
[spoiler title=”中文版”]如果你二年没有拿起一本时尚杂志，你肯定认不出这是一个“豪华运动”的摸样。正如它的名字所暗示的，“豪华运动”相当华丽和时尚。依吾之见，是无法实现的。因此，我在这里示范的更运动而不或豪华。不过，我有一个借口。我仍然认为“运动豪华”这个词十分矛盾。锻炼怎么可能是豪华呢？运动涉及劳累，努力锻炼，依靠意志（我们拥有的最顽固的肌肉），推动自己的身体和心理的障碍，出汗，并得穿紧身衣。你相信我了吗？我小时候一个短跑和曲棍球运动员。没有玩以外的任何运动。我从来没有踏进健身房。我在Mansion Hotel & Spa at Werribee Park（看看我以前的博客描述了富丽堂皇的豪宅）唯一作的运动是按摩。相反的运动。
