Can you believe that this cape was part of a school uniform in the 50s? I’m so thankful that there’s finally been a little bit of sunshine in Melbourne lately, it’s been rather wet in the past few weeks, making taking blogging photos rather impossible. But luckily, the sun finally greeted with an enthusiastic royal wave, just in time for me to don this Neo Dia ‘UV print’ dress. The Melbourne-based designers continue to create cutting-edge pieces that are innovative but not theatrical, luxurious and yet comfortable. I’ve layered this dress with a black turtleneck , but it will look ultra modern and chic in the warmer months on its own. And can you notice something?
You may have been distracted by this fine print, but if you read between the lines, you’ll see that I’ve been waiting for something to ‘appear’ to finally tell you my latest news. I’m sporting a 4 month old bump. A baby bump. Before it appeared, I must admit, I panicked a little. So I overindulged in food just so I can ‘push it out’ a little bit. Because what’s worse? Looking pregnant, or looking like one’s constantly suffering from a post-prandial bulge?
Ok, body change issues aside, I’m thrilled to announce that at the end of November the Kees will become parents to a little Kee (funny that…). It’s still really surreal. Not too long ago, I was still adamant that I will never ever have kids (just like the “I’m never going to get married!” statement I made in my adolescence). Being an only child and having had negative experiences with babies made me believe that they’re the most annoying ‘things’ in the world when I was younger. Plus, Chihuahuas are way more fun than babies! Aren’t they?
But God has a great sense of humour. Slowly, through divine intervention and miraculous circumstances, my heart and attitude started to change. So when hubby and I were finally ready for kids, voila, it happened, effortlessly. I’m still not clucky at all, nor am I particularly excited about giving birth. What I am excited about, is having a baby with Chian, the love of my life.
I’ve been contemplating about how to break this news to you for a while, so hopefully I’ve done it justice. And don’t you worry, Cecylia.com is not going to transform into a maternity blog as I refuse to compromise style for shape, hence why I love this Neo Dia dress so much! The blog will still feature Cecylia, in her designer/vintage garb, although all the pictures will be photo-bombed by Mini Kee…
[spoiler title=”中文版”] 你一定很难相信这件深蓝色的披肩曾是50年的代校服吧？我很感谢墨尔本终于有了一点阳光，过去的几个星期十分潮湿，拍博客的照片很困难。但幸运的是，太阳终于露出了它的笑脸，因此，我穿上这条Neo DiaUV花印的裙子很恰时。这两位墨尔本的设计师不断创造创新并豪华且舒适的时装。我在这件衣服下穿了黑色的高领毛衣，但夏天的时候，单单穿这条裙子它会看起来更别致。你能看出我又什么不同吗？
有段时间了，我一直在考虑如何打破这个消息告诉你。你不要担心，Cecylia.com不会转化为成什么生育博客，因为我拒绝做出时尚的妥协。这就是为什么我那么喜欢这件Neo Dia 的裙子！博客仍将有Cecylia，穿这她最爱的设计师/复古装，但所有的照片也将展示‘迷你Cecylia’ [/spoiler]
