This is one of 3 items I recently brought back to California from my old closet in China. I still remember the reason why I bought it. I wasn’t good at “office style” at work about 10 years ago; I dressed very Hippie or Romantic, you know, maybe not really hippie or romantic, but often something that shouldn’t have been worn to the office…haha… So one day, my boss asked me to get some blazers and leave them in the office, so that I can wear it while I working in the office, using the blazers to cover up my “inappropriate” clothes. I really hated plaid blazers at that time, so I got this floral blazer. You know, floral is so huge right now, that’s why I brought this blazer back to the U.S with me. And another example of the famous law: fashion recycles!
And to answer some questions from several of my readers: where did I buy these items in China, like the bag here and here, and this blazer? They were all hunted from some small stores and shops in the streets of the city I lived in China. So, in other words — they are “no-name brands”! Or, to put it more positively, they are “limited editions.”
In Chinese: 这件外套是我从中国的旧衣橱里带回加州的三样单品之一. 现在依然记得很清楚当初买这件外套的原因: 因为大概10年前工作的时候, 我其实穿得特别不规范, 特别没有办公室着装感, 当时的风格嘛,,,有点小嬉皮, 有点小浪漫, 可能也许还谈不上嬉皮或浪漫, 因为当时对时尚真没什么感觉. 直到有一天, 老板实在看不下去了, 让我去买些西装外套放在办公室里, 这样在上班的时候我可以穿上, 显得正式些. 当时我又很不喜欢那种纯色 的西装外套, 所以就买了这件花朵七分袖小西装. 你也知道的, 今年春夏花朵 图案特别热, 所以我也把这件外套带到美国来了. 好象这也应证了另一个理论: 时尚总是轮回运转的.
