Hang Your Roses

So hang your roses upside down yeah & keep the last love and then,
The great thing about winter flowers is they look alive when they're long gone.

-- Martha Tilston "Winter Flowers"


    Sartorial rules dictate that "Red and green should never be seen, except upon an Irish queen". Well, while I'm sure this rule has been broken many times over by daring fashionistas around the world, I'm always partial to touches of green in red outfits and vice versa. The beautifully detailed ring by Cor-date, along with the leaves on the shirt collar and teal hues on my nails, serve as a great contrast to my burgundy and grey outfit.

The Pastel Life

I see the style in your face,
Is it pastel in clothes?

-- Still Life "Pastel"


    Another week, another pastel post. My obsession with soft spring colours just keeps escalating. Just a few weeks ago I received my Cor-date bracelet with this brilliant lilac gem. The soft hue of the lilac crystal set in a delicate chain of antique gold exudes an air of classical elegance and romance. The pale purple hue is perfect for purple or pink outfits, but actually it works well with green and white too. By the way, I really don't mean to look so pouty, but I had ulcers on my upper lip and cold sores on my lower lip, I can hardly smile these days  :(

    又到了每週來一篇粉彩色系的時候。對於春天粉嫩色的迷戀一直在持續著。幾個禮拜前收到了 Cor-date的幸運色手鍊,上面綴著超亮的粉紫色彩鑽。柔和的紫色水晶搭配細緻的古金手鍊,散發著古典浪漫又優雅的氛圍。這樣淺淺的紫色,很適合搭紫色或粉色的單品,不過其實就算搭綠色或白色也不會突兀。然後偷說,我不是故意在嘟嘴的啦 >"<  最近壓力大,我的上唇裡面破了個洞,下唇長了唇泡疹,最近連笑都有困難了 T_T

In the Nudes

Forget about the colors that you knew before,
It's just beige to beige.

John Cougar Mellencamp "Beige to Beige"

    I have long had an obsession with nudes (the color scheme, that is ... not literally) and as spring approaches, I finally buckled down to write about my nude-y, beige-y and cream-y stuff ... erm, that sounds a bit weird but oh well! :P

    一直以來我都對裸色系超有愛的,於是隨著春天近了,我終於下定決心來寫這篇~好好的記錄一下我那些裸色﹑米色﹑奶油色(?)的單品們 ... 呃,跟指甲油  ;)

    Over the years I've accumulated quite a number of nude pink or beige items, either via the omnipotent internet or scouring little boutiques for bargain finds. With these little bits and pieces, I attempt to piece together nude-themed outfits pour 5 jours. And here they are!


Top : (here)
Blazer :  YFS Ladies
Skirt :  Kooki
Bag :  Vincci

    A simple outfit fit for work. The nude pink top is actually part of a set that came with culottes of the same hue. It's actually quite comfortable and thankfully, not transparent.

    適合日常上班的簡單穿搭。這件淘寶的粉裸色上衣其實是跟上次同色的闊腿褲一個套餐的。算是蠻值的得,因為穿起來舒服而且,謝天謝地,它不透(內搭好煩 XD)!

    Nude hues go well with warm colours, too. This Romwe shirt is quite a versatile piece, and I like how the spiked collar adds an interesting detail to an outfit.

    裸色系跟溫暖色系也滿契合的喔!這件 Romwe 上衣應該算是百搭的單品,最喜歡的還是領口上的鉚釘裝飾,為穿搭增加一點有趣的細節感 :)

Dress :  Niche
Blazer :  baby blue
Shoes :  Emilio Valentino
Clutch : (here)

    Nude items can soften an outfit with dramatic colours. I had this blazer for quite some time, but the cut and the shade of pink nude still appeals to me even now.

    在色彩濃烈的穿搭中加上裸色單品可以增添一些溫柔氣息。這件裸粉色西裝外套其實買有點久了,但是它的剪裁跟柔和的色澤即使到現在還是深得我心 >///<

Shorts :  Niche
Bag :  Vincci

    The pairing of nudes and white/ cream is so very springtime. This knit top from Pazzo is early spring essential, perfect for the occasional slight chill in March and April.

    粉裸色 x 白/米色的搭配真的很有春天的氛圍。這件 Pazzo 的針織上衣是早春的必備品,厚度對於三﹑四月偶爾稍冷的天氣剛剛好  :P

    Adding black items gives a tougher edge to nude outfits. By the way, this asymmetrical Sheinside dress might be a tad flimsy material-wise, but the way the skirt floats as you walk is really ethereal (which, unfortunately, I fail to capture using a self-timer).

    加入黑色單品立馬變成『甘 x 辛』的mix。話說回來,這件 Sheinside 前短後長洋裝質料上超薄,質感普普,但是走路時下擺在後面飄起真的很仙(可惜用定時自拍沒拍到  T_T)

    And here's the usual shoe shot -- all the shoes that I used in this post. I really adore the nude ones that I just got, comfy and just goes well with so many things! :)

    照舊要來拍張鞋子全家福 :P  --  就是這篇穿搭用的全部鞋子啦!目前很愛最近入手的裸色素面高跟鞋,好穿又跟很多單品都很搭 >///<

    Of course, I'm wearing nude nails this time and I guess some bangles from bargain bins years ago. Basic black, white and gold work well with nude and beige hues.

    當然,這次使用的也是裸色系指彩 ... 還有一些多年前大特價買來的各種便宜手鐲 XDD  最基本的黑色﹑白色跟金色搭上裸色系通常都不會出錯喔!:)

    Oh, and if you follow me on Instagram (@bonjourjasmineblog), you can see that I'm already obssessed with posting photos of nude shades since, well, maybe last week LOL

    噢對了~如果你們有看我的Instagram (@bonjourjasmineblog),會發現我大概從上禮拜就在狂 po 粉裸色系的照片(這是所謂的鋪梗嗎? XDD)

Hmm ... so there's that then, bonsoir!


Bises! ♥♥
