La Vie Sociale

We dance like no tomorrow, we're on burlesque time
But everybody's gotta work tomorrow at nine

-- Lady Gaga "Vanity"


    I'm not sure if any of you have seen the Chinese film version of Les Liaisons dangereuses, set in the glitzy 1930s' Shanghai. The opulence and glamour of the venue and costumes in the movie is my main inspiration for this outfit shoot, which took place in the comforting privacy of my parents' bathroom LOL. I'm wearing lovely grey earrings by Cor-date, which antique gold tones perfectly complement the intended old world glamour of the outfit.

    不知道你們有沒有看過改編自法國小說 Les Liaisons dangereuses 的中文電影《危險關係》?場景設在 30 年代繁華的舊上海,劇中金碧輝煌的建築與一襲襲精美的華服,是我這次穿搭的靈感來源。穿成這樣不敢出門,只好躲在爸媽的浴室裡拍個過癮 XDD  這次配戴的是 Cor-date 的灰色果實耳環,那古董般的古金仿舊色澤和精緻的鑲鑽雕花,正好符合我印象中的舊上海,那逝去的華麗年代。

Sora's Orange

    I got myself a really blazing orange lip colour in my recent Holika Holika haul, a neon orange that sort of reminds me of Sora Park. For those of you unfamiliar with the name, Sora is the hugely popular model for Korean lifestyle brand Style Nanda. If you Google the name, you'll most likely find photos of her in the most vivid of lip colours. You can find my inspiration for today's look here and here.

    最近採購的一堆 Holika Holika 彩妝中,包括了這隻亮橘色的唇彩。那幾乎算螢光橘的色澤,讓我想到韓國時尚品牌 Style Nanda 的當紅麻豆 Sora Park。隨便估狗一下這個名字,你會找到很多很多 Sora 用著各式鮮艷唇彩的美照  >///<  我今天的靈感來源請看這裡這裡

    The full name of this lip colour is Pro Beauty Tinted Rouge in OR201 Tropical. The texture is on the watery side and this is just super pigmented, it's literally like applying paint on the lips. It does not hide lip lines though, but the colour stays on pretty long even through food and drink.

    這隻唇彩的全名是 Pro Beauty Tinted Rouge,色號是 OR201 Tropical(sorry 不知道它有沒有中文譯名  >.<)。它的質地偏水潤,然後色彩超飽和 ... 根本像在塗廣告顏料一樣 XDD  雖然不太能遮唇紋,但是算相當持久,經過吃吃喝喝的洗禮那螢光橘還是屹立不倒(成語是這樣用的嗎?) :P

Oh, and here are the other items I'm using this look!


1. Mary Kay Botanical Effects Freshen Lotion
2. Holika Holika Water March Moisture Full Cream  -  Green
3. Holika Holika Miracle Real Skin Finish  -  Purple

1. Holika Holika Dark Circle Stealer Stick Cover  -  01
2. Albion Exage White Dreamy Summer Foundation  -  010

1. in2it Waterproof Eyebrow Liner  -  WB02
2. in2it Waterproof Gel Liner  -  GP01
3. Kate Eyebrow Color N  -  LB1
4. Kate Eye Shadow DB  -  BR-3
5. Maybelline HyperCosmos Eyeshadow  -  CH-1
6. Holika Holika Puremellow Jelly Blusher  -  03

    Well, I do really like this lip tint despite it being a little sticky. It has become my go-to lip colour whenever I escape momentarily from my obsession with full red lips. I think I might go for another one, the CR301 which seems less orange red and more tangerine. You can never have enough orange lipsticks anyway! ;)

    總的來說,我還是蠻喜歡這款唇彩的,雖然它有一滴滴黏。只要不被鬼打牆的復古大紅唇迷惑的日子裡,我通常都會選擇穿它出門 XD  我想接下來可能會再入手一個 -- 看起來稍微沒那麼橘紅,比較像柑桔色調的 CR301(因為被尹恩惠的 M.A.C 橘唇給電暈了 orz)。哎呀~反正橘色唇膏永遠不嫌多的啦!;)

You can see the colours here!

Cor-date Un-Deux-Trois

    Well, there it is ... the first outfit post for my Cor-date haul. This pair of emerald-hued earrings is simple in design, but the colour itself is so very breathtaking no further adornments are needed. I took an afternoon shooting outfit photos with these sparklers, and I just couldn't get over the gorgeous green that popped when I reviewed the pictures through the lens of my 500D.

    終於生出來了 ... 我的第一篇 Cor-date 穿搭文 (^皿^)  這對綠寶石耳環雖然樣式相對簡單,但是那深邃的綠意真的是太美了,就算沒有更多的雕花綴飾也一樣迷人 >///<!用了某一天不用上班的下午拍穿搭,結果忍不住為 500D 鏡頭中那抹翠綠深深著迷。

Skirt :  Sue Sue Choe
Shoes :  Emilio Valentino
Bag :  Jeanasis
Earrings :  Cor-date

    Just bought this grey collared sweater recently. The deep green of these earrings really go well with anything that is old-looking and grandmotherly, I guess. Oh, and deep ruby lips are a must-have too if you're going full retro!

    搭上最近入手的花領灰色針織衫。這對耳環的墨綠色澤真的很適合搭一些看起來老舊,像是屬於祖母年代的復古單品 XDD  然後復古的暗紅唇膏也是必備噢!

Top :  Ashley
Skirt :
Shoes :  Emilio Valentino
Earrings :  Cor-date

    Naturally anything blue/green is a good match as well. Pleated skirt, berry lips, quilted chain bag ... yes, I think I would blend in easily even if I were in the good old days of my mother's youth.

    當然,這副耳環配上任何藍或綠的單品也會很好看。百摺裙、莓紅唇色、鍊條包 ... 我想假若我回到了媽媽的那個年代,應該也不會顯得突兀吧  :P

Top :  Lowrys Farm
Pants :  B.Love
Bag :  Coach
Earrings :  Cor-date

    Rarely do I wear long pants on my blog, despite it being the staple of my workwear. On a side note, I love how my nails do not look out of place for each of these three outfits.

    我真的很少在部落格中以長褲搭配耶,雖然那是我上班的基本裝備 XDD  題外話,我覺得這次用的指彩,在三種穿搭中都搭得上,真是可喜可賀  <( ̄︶ ̄)>  


    That's all ... well, not exactly, because I just put in another huge order for more bling! This is really getting terribly addictive. And there's no shoe shot this time, just some colourful feet to end the day!

    這次就醬啦 ... 呃,也不完全是,因為我又熊熊下了個大訂單 (>﹏<)  根本買 C0r-date 買上癮了啦!然後這次沒有最後的鞋子合照(也就兩雙而已  囧>),就用秋冬色系的腳丫子來做 ending 吧!

    Oh, and apologies for the poor resolution of some of the photos. I took the pictures myself with the control timer, and adjusting the focus of the lens on something as small as a pair of earrings is, to say the least, an unenviable chore.

    噢,然後真是抱歉 ... 有些照片看起來沒對好焦或解析度不太好 orz。因為是自己用定時拍攝的方式,對焦之類的都要自己來。要把鏡頭焦點預先對到像耳環那麼小的東西真的是一件苦差  T_T
