The 400 co “Genius” Jacket / Antonia Goy Dress / Vintage sunglasses, Belt & clutch / Arezzo Heels

The last time I wore this inkblot/topographical/butterfly-print dress was in Paris. Because of its easy breezy shape, hubby recommended it when I was complaining that I didn’t have anything to wear whilst I was pregnant. But the silk number disappeared into the messy abyss of my wardrobe and I didn’t see it again until recently. Even though I’d completely forgot how I’d styled it 4 years ago, I got a huge shock when I dug out this post. Can you believe it?! The similarities are uncanny! Right down to the purple heels! I think this coincidence is the result of:

a) the fact that according to neuroscientists, we never forget our experiences, everything we see, hear, smell and feel are eternally stored in our memories, hence why we have those weird dreams, and that’s why we ought to be careful what we expose ourselves to…or the fact that

b) the best combination to style up this fancy frock is a slim-fitting blazer, a charming belt, and equally interesting heels, full stop. Or because…

c) I somehow foresaw that Pantone would name their colour of the year to be Radiant Orchid in 2014, or maybe

d) Yves Saint Laurent knew it all along: “Fashion fades, but style is eternal.”

Guess some things never change, and some fashion formulae last forever. How would you style this dress?

我上一次穿这件蝴蝶印花的连衣裙是四年前在巴黎。因为它的款式很宽松,当我怀着孕说没有衣服穿的时候,我的老公推荐了这条裙子。但因为它很薄,这几年来在衣橱里我一直没有再见到它,直到最近。虽然我完全忘了几年前我怎样搭配这条裙子,当我翻出了这篇博客的时候大吃一斤。真不可思议!就连紫色的高跟鞋都一样!我想这个巧合是因为:

a)根据神经科学家,我们永不会忘记我们的经验。我们一生所看到的,听到的和感觉到的一切都永远保存在我们的记忆里,因此通常我们会作一些超奇怪的梦,这也就是为什么我们应该注意我们所有的经验,不是所有的经验都对我们好的。 这巧合也有可能因为

b)配这条裙子最佳的方法就是加上一件合身的西装外套,迷人的腰带,和同样有趣的高跟鞋。或许因为…

c)我早已预见到2014年最重要的颜色会时紫色,也有可能

d)伊夫圣罗兰说得对: “时尚会变淡,但风格是永恒的。 ”

有些东西永不会改变,一些配衣服的方法是跨越年代的。请问如果是你,你会怎样配这条衣裙子呢?

That dress is beautiful! Great that you could rediscover it! And I love that despite having similar elements, the look 4 years ago and today look quite different still :)
