I was going to warn you about the excessive amount of orange you will see in this post, but I guess it’s too late now. Oops. Sam, a.k.a. my only friend in real life, and I put together four outfits with this Topshop jumper. Just because we are so different in every single way (height, taste, body shape, taste, hair style, taste, etc), we thought it’d be interesting to see how differently we interpret this unmanageable orange mess. On a side note, the fact that Sam didn’t actually “wear” the jumper made me look like the person who’s not thinking outside of the box. Totally cheating!
Here’s a little breakdown on my two outfits: In the first outfit I wore my newly purchased midget varsity jacket (because Sam totally rocked my long varsity jacket roar roar) together with the sweater tucked in to a slim pencil skirt. I like the “top-heavy” silhouette mostly because it works well on my “top-heavy” body shape, ironically. In the second outfit I challenged myself to wear these really tricky Jacquard trousers, though still not a fan of pants, I can see how they bring out a more sophisticated side of me.
I was having this “Tangerine means luck in Chinese” conversation with my entirely Western team at work as CNY is just around the corner. And it is the first time I realized how cute it is that Chinese people actually believe tangerines will bring them luck. So, as someone who’s desperately in need of luck I decided to wear more orange in 2013 (it’s on trend!). Hope you’re having tons of luck in 2013! Talk soon.
