Favorite Denim Shirt

A few months ago, I was interviewed by Cris for Chictopia here .  I still remember when Cris asked me what are my 5 favorite pieces from the closet, and one of my answers was a white button down shirt. I think I have changed my mind —- a denim shirt should be one of my favorite items right now. Indeed, I have several washed denim shirts in my closet, and I like to use them to do layers or mix and match. It’s so easy to dress up or down, and can be worn in all seasons.

Don’t you like the ruffles on this dress? You can see me wore it as skirt here and here.

In Chinese: 几个月前,  在这里Chictopia的编辑Cris给我做了一个访问, 我依然还记得当时Cris问我在我衣橱里最喜欢的五样单品是哪些? 其中我的一个回答是一件白色的基本款衬衣. 现在想想我要改变主意了—一件牛仔衬衣才是现时我的最爱. 实际上, 我的衣橱里有很多件不同水洗度的牛仔衬衣, 喜欢用这些牛仔衬衣们来做叠穿, 或混搭.一件牛仔衬衣的功能可不可小视, “出得厅堂,下得厨房”, 呵呵…而且一年四季都可以穿呢.

你们是不是也和我一样喜欢这条抹胸裙子上的皱折? 你可以在这里这里看到我是拿她来当半身裙穿的.

This time, Red Bear giving this shirt a name as:”Office man!”. hahaah…..he was right though, but a rocky office man indeed:)

这一次, Red Bear给了这件衬衣又一个名字叫” 办公室男人”, 哈哈….他对这点倒是很有天赋啵, 很确切的说, 这是个摇滚类型的办公室男人:)

I was wearing : Free People Ruffled Dress/Skirt

Zara Denim Shirt


Dolce Vita Booties(old)

Chanel Insolente lips

Red Bear was wearing: Shirt c/o American Apparel

    Oh yeah, I do remember the looks you wore this dress as a skirt (actually only the first one, the second one was before I joined the party lol! And in the first one, I was still in Chictopia. Jeez, I left 4 months ago and it feels like 4 years! -Anyways). It was beautiful as a skirt, but it’s even more beautiful as a dress. The raw ruffles and the nude-ish color make for the perfect dress. You know, if I had this piece, I’d find it extremely difficult to make it more casual, so I really admire your ability to wear ‘difficult’ pieces in daytime! The denim shirt is certainly a staple! Ever since I saw you using them so much and in so many different combinations, I got one myself and thanks to you, it has become an integral piece! And here, it made this dress wearable! Oh and of course I LOVE the bag, this color is gorgeous! The belt is cute too! I love the way you tied it. Can you believe I can’t tie my belts like this?? REALLY! It’s getting annoying. I see the pics and I’m all like ‘yeah, it looks easy, I get it now’, but when I try to tie them, it doesn’t look as beautiful as yours lol! Maybe it’s because of the length of the belt (no, I’m pretty sure it’s because of my incapacity lol)!
    OMGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH!!!!!! Red Bear <3 <3 He is a gentleman! A stylish, rocker chic gentleman! I love so much his outfit! I think it's my number one favorite of his outfits! The belt is adorable and AH! He looks awesome! 😀 <3 haha, I'm all aaah-s and ooooh-s when I see Red Bear's picks, so momma looks at me and she always says 'Are you talking with Hallie again? Let me see Red Bear's picks!' ahahaha! Seriously! She loves this baby <3 And I'm pretty sure that she would be interested in your style as well, but she doesn't really get the whole meaning of fashion blogging, so I quitted explaining hahah! 😀
    Bye bye! 😀 Kisseees!

      So you have problem in tied the belt? maybe it’s too soft or too hard, did you try use different belt and I believe there is always have one way fit you:D
      Say Thank you to your mom for me, for being inerested in Red Bear, lol…and for having a sweet daughter like you for me:D

      他爸只有上庭才穿这种正式的衬衣呢, 一般在办公室也只是普通的POLO恤.RB现在在家里我都不让他穿下装了, 连尿片都没有, 正在训练自己上厕所呢, 哈哈, 成效很大!

          YY真能干, 可以自己上厕厕了,佩服佩服.
          晕,,,怎么会有这种事情?还有上厕厕被人抱走的?在美国这里还好啦,因为都是马桶式的, 而且都是单间独门的,所以以后遇上这种事情,我肯定是让他和我一起上女厕厕的.他大了的话就另当别说啦.
