I think we all ought to thank Dries Van Noten for reinventing tartan last spring. His rendition of the checks trend was softer, less Scottish, more slouchy. I first debuted this silk sarong skirt at LMFF last year (now called VAMFF), but being one who likes to manipulate garments, I had to give it another appearance, this time, as a dress. Surprisingly, the strapless sack worked, and not so to ill effect. However, since pregnancy prevented me from doing weights, I’ve long lost toned shoulders and arms. But luckily, a cute little white jacket (complete with a flattering peplum and interesting back contrast) came to my rescue.
Can you believe that this zip up jacket is designed with lawyers in mind? Although I had once contemplated about studying to become one, hours of filing and photocopying as a high school work experience kid in a law firm made me reconsider my career choices. So instead, I married one. And now I even have the pleasure of pretending to be one in this well-tailored jacket.
What did you hope to be when you grew up? You may answer the question.
[spoiler title=”中文版”] 我应该感谢Dries Van Noten去年春天的时装系列，是他将格子变得那么时髦。他的格子不是苏格兰风格，而有更休闲的感觉。我第一次穿这条丝绸纱笼裙是在去年的墨尔本L’Oreal时装周 ，但作为一个谁喜欢尝试时装的人，这一次，我将这条裙子当作连衣裙穿。去年因为我怀孕没办法锻炼我的肩膀和手臂，它们不像往年那么“秀气”。但幸运的是，这件可爱的白色小外套前来帮了我。
