Remember how I told you in the previous post that most pieces I packed for the US have proven to be too warm for the insane heat wave? I gave Zara a chance, found some flats, but nearly everything I saw was polyester. Definitely not a good fabric for trying to stay cool. Plus, I can’t rock up to fashion week dressed the same as everyone else (and I already have the disadvantage of a bulging belly). So when the going got tough, the tough went shopping! Hubby kindly brought me to a vintage treasure trove – Ravishing Resale – and patiently waited for his 6 months pregnant wife try on nearly a quarter of the store in search of wardrobe replacements. Thankfully, our visit was not in vain. The lovely Maruschka quenched our thirst, gave us nutritional tips and was the answer to my wardrobe woes. Thanks to the revitalising air-conditioned interior, I almost didn’t want to leave.
I picked out a few pieces to sport in New York, and will show you in due time. But here’s a sneak peek of one of my favourite purchases from Maruschka: a 50s hat complete with wire ‘ears’ that keep it secured on my head. I’d been in search for a summer hat all week. Ducking into every chain store you can think of, including their male counterparts, my search for the perfect straw hat was in vain. As you saw in [THIS POST] I even resorted to borrowing hubby’s Panama, but it doesn’t actually fit me properly. It wasn’t until I spotted this white number at Ravishing Resale that I feel like I’m finally on holidays. It just shows: good things do come to those who wait. And of course, those that go shopping.
还记得在昨天的博客文章里，我告诉你我从澳洲带来大部分的行李不适合美国炎热天气吗？我给了ZARA一个机会，发现了这双芭蕾舞鞋，但几乎所有我看到的衣服是由聚酯纤维作的。它在夏天绝对不是一个好料。另外，我不能和其他去参加时装周的人穿的一样（我已经有一个鼓鼓的肚子当我的缺点）。因此，但我没办法只好去购物。老公将我带到了一个复古的店 – 耐心地等待了他怀着6个月孕的妻子试穿了几乎整个店的衣服。最后，我找到了几条合适的裙子。店主Maruschka帮助了我的时尚困境。她的店内有空调，我几乎不想离开。
