Can’t believe we’re stepping into 2014! Thank you all SO much for your support and help in the past year, I especially appreciate all the warm greetings to my son, who means the whole world to me (can’t believe he is already 4 months)!

Speaking of New Year, my revolution in terms of fashion is pushing the envelope further and be more experimental. The arty prints, saturated colors, sultry see-through, subtle punk are all in my ‘try-more’ list. Incorporating more dresses into my practical-oriented mommy-wardrobe is also an exciting challenging. What’s your revolution?

In Chinese: 不敢相信记忆中遥远的2014就在眼前了。谢谢你们在过去一年的支持,尤其感谢那些在我生产期间写信鼓励和祝福我的朋友们,儿子的出生是我2013年最值得骄傲和最感恩的事。现在他就是我的整个世界了。

说到2014,你的新年愿望是什么?在时尚方面,我希望自己在搭配上能更有突破和创新,就像上面这几个造型中看到的艺术图案、大的花朵明艳的颜色性感的透视设计或一些庞克元素等我还想再多尝试。另外,虽然需要照顾宝宝,陪他玩,在日常活动中也要多找机会穿裙子,这个对实用为主导的妈妈们可能会是个挑战。你呢?

Like LBDs, every leather jacket has its own character, as well as the right occasion to wear: Fringed version has that toughened up urban bohemian vibe, great for getaways or downtown stroll; Quilted version exudes that classic motorcyble girl’s free spirit, great for everyday wear, especially charming when juxtaposed against exquisite evening dresses; Hooded one is sporty and youthful, great for casual activities or a flight to gym; Sleek one with minimal details is mod and sophisticated, great for working moms as it has the ability to be easily transformed for various occasions.

In Chinese: 像经典的小黑裙一样,每件小皮衣都各有‘性格’,适合不同场合和活动的皮衣在细节上也各有不同:带流苏的皮衣硬朗中有波希米亚的随性感,适合去度假或在周末的跳骚市场淘宝;肩部和袖子上有菱格纹设计,且有拉链、肩章等设计的皮衣保留了原始的机车夹克的酷感,适合日常穿着,和小礼裙或晚礼服等配起来别有一番风味;带帽衫或牛仔拼接的飞行员夹克则活力十足,适合户外活动或健身时保暖;还有一种极简的设计,利落的剪裁和很少的细节点缀有精良的都市风,很适合上班族通勤或周末时穿,尤其适合忙碌的职场妈妈们,通过简单的搭配上的调整(比如换双鞋子或手包等)就能穿着它出入各种场合了。

Continuing the discussion of what to wear for holiday parties, if bold digital print dresses we shared last time aren’t your thing, then there is always a perfect little black dress fits your needs.

As you can see above: a lace embroidered version enhanced Olivia Palermo’s sweetness while a grid crew-neck version brought out Alexa Chung’s preppy and quirky flair.

Even with the two very similar Prada dresses, Kate Moss & Audrey Tautou pulled out totally different outfits: Kate Moss went for a girly, flirty vibe using colorful and playful eye-catching accessories whereas Audrey Tautou represented Parisian chic with elegant pump, minimal jewelry and sophisticated makeup.

In Chinese: 延续我们关于年末派对着装的话题,如果夸张、前卫的数码印花裙不是你的风格,那一定有一条小黑裙符合你的诉求。今天所选的4个小黑裙的造型就各有千秋:Olivia Palermo的蕾丝镶边的丝质小黑裙很符合她一贯甜美的风格,Alexa Chung的小圆领、带透明格子网纱的小黑裙则展现了她标志性的透着些许古灵精怪的学院风气质。

即使是非常相似的两条Prada小黑裙,搭配上不同的发式、妆容和配件,也会展现完全不同的风格: Kate Moss的彩色凉鞋和斑马纹手包给这条裙子注入了活泼和轻快的元素;Audrey Tautou则用优雅的黑色麂皮高跟鞋、极简的配饰和精致的妆容展现了巴黎女人的自信和优雅。
