How have you all been for the 2 weeks we have been away from the blogging world?
Back from much beading, catching up with tasks from our Etsy shop, negotiating with new avenues, and what not.
During which, thoughts of what signature style would I love to personify became my pet project in my mind. Something fuss free but yet iconic enough for people to recognize me for. And here is what I deem would be me and something I could deal with for the rest of my life through all unending changing trends – this would be me, always.
I don’t I will ever have the patience to keep my hair long again.
The last time I had long hair, it was at my butt and I was 18.
And I am the kind that have no patience to go for or D.I.Y hair treatments for long hair.
So here are two picks that are evidently from the WWII period.
I love the short length and the feminine bangs to it. Works great both loose and combed back.
Style of Clothing
Most of the times, I really don’t want to get into the motion of deciding what to wear.
I tend to be wearing a “uniform” of my own, while I love to style others.
Black, charcoal, white, brown, cream, the occasional red fill my wardrobe palette.
However, what stylization shall it be?
As a child, I have always loved the cheongsam. Feminine, sultry yet strong.
Although it is of my race’s origin, I did not grow up seeing anyone wear it fashionably.
I currently own one red mod Song & Kelly silk cheongsam dress, and two silk cheongsam blouses in authentic peony embroidered motifs ~ one jet black and the other royal blue.
When I watched In the Mood for Love, my love cheongsam rekindled! The high collared cheongsams were to die for. And I love Shanghai Tang‘s mod take as well!
I will wear them with sleek pencil pants even if its a dress since the slits on the sides are high, it would do good for some modesty and easy leg movement.
Creating the Gait
How a pair of shoes arches, and how tall the heels affect how one gaits.
Flat pumps makes me feel relaxed and motherly.
But when I work, a pair of good stilettos never fail to imbue a sense of control within me.
What do you think of my signature style?
And what would you love for your own signature style?
I hope you all enjoy my comeback post!
