An effortlessly chic day-time outfit that can be easily transformed into a glamorous night-out look simply by taking off the vest. Put a little thought in the morning, you will move with ease and confidence till dusk. The blush colored tote is such an unexpected finishing touch. I think it works because the pink is very subtle and sophisticated, thus almost works as a neutral, the black handle and dove grey side panels also help it blend harmoniously with the rest.

In Chinese: 我最近最喜欢的一个造型,运用了很多巧妙的搭配技巧却看起来随性自如。更重要的是这套造型可以从早穿到晚:晚上约会或晚餐时只要脱掉马甲就可以了。可见早上出门前多花点心思,一整天都可以游刃有余。这个粉色的拼色手包更是意想不到的搭配,放在这个造型里完全成立的原因在于它的粉优雅柔和,几乎可以算做中性色,而且黑色的手提带和侧边的灰色拼接和裙子的颜色也相互呼应。

I'm Helen. In the huge fashion world, what attracts me the most is the way different people accessorize themselves. Our daily outfit choices are not just about the pieces we pick, they relate to something lurking deeply within our hearts: how we feel about ourselves, how we express ourselves to the rest of the world, what kind of people do we want to be and what kind of life do we want to live. Following my passion for fashion, I immerse myself in this bizarre world and try my best to share what I learned with you!
