Drinking Games



She's got a song for everything,
 Everywhere she's been, everyone she's pleased.

-- Library Voices "Drinking Games"


NOTES

    A day came when I decided to paint my nails all black as tar and think of the consequences later. Evidently such a bold colour scheme did not sit well with my usual pastel preferences, I had to summon my leather jacket and smoking slippers to the rescue. And of course, some baroque jewellery to match the intricate embroidery on my footwear and the overall black-and-gold palette. The result? I think I was better equipped to conduct negotiations at a triad's table than to drink at a bar (a gun can be so handily hidden underneath that pimp hat, you see) ...

    某天突然心血來潮,不顧後果把指甲塗得跟柏油一樣黑  XDD  結果很明顯,衣櫃裡的浪漫風衣服沒一件能搭得上,只好把皮衣跟黑色雕花平底鞋拉出來救援。當然還要加上幾樣巴洛克風飾品來配合鞋子上的刺繡跟整體黑 x 金的色調。結果是?我想我這樣比起去喝酒,還是比較適合去黑道談判吧(槍藏在帽子裡 XD)...

The Reds and The Browns



The falling leaves drift by the window,
The autumn leaves of red and gold.

-- Red Garland "Autumn Leaves"



    I know I've been missing throughout November, and well, I believe such disappearances are apt to become more frequent in the coming months as I prepare for presentations and exams. One reason I've prepared quite a lengthy post (as opposed to OoTDs) today. I took two afternoons shooting as the light was really inconsistent and I gave up halfway.

    哈哈~我知道我整個十一月都失蹤了 :P  而且我有預感在接下來幾個月這種情況會繼續發生,因為要準備一堆報告跟考試 orz  所以今天寫了篇比較長的穿搭教學文。然後因為光線時好時壞的關係被迫中途放棄,結果花了兩個下午才拍完。








    Perhaps I've mentioned this before, but one of my favourite articles in Japanese fashion magazines involve using an X number of items to create a Y number of outfits. This time, I'm using 8 basic items to create 15 fall outfits, and to achieve a more cohesive feel, I've limited the colour scheme to just warm colours -- mainly reds and browns.

    我應該有在其他文中提過,日文雜誌中最喜歡的單元是那種用 X件單品搭出 Y個穿搭的企劃。這次,我還是用了我的老梗 8件單品 x 15天穿搭,然後為了讓穿搭比較有主題性,這次的單品限定暖色調 -- 紅色、大地色為主。

    As I planned for this post in mid-November, when it was still occasionally hot, some of the outfits are not really that warm to suit the usual cold fall/winter weather.

    呃 ... 因為我是早在11月中的時候就計劃寫這篇穿搭,當時的天氣還是時冷時熱的,所以加入少部分適合暖和天氣的穿搭這樣  XD
