買了才算,荷包無損

除鑽石外,女生好友可真多,鞋子地位數一數二。筆者也是鞋痴(盡得母親真傳).櫃子全場爆滿,但總是差一雙,我亦樂意加場。因爲款式特別或價格吸引而買下的鞋無數,可是總有不好穿、不好走、不貼腳、不能走路,多不的這種情況常見。有見及此,我無法不捨棄愛鞋,可是才剛呱呱落地,就此丟掉不人道也。

後來發現交換網(網址公佈於文後)。將家中多餘物品放於網上以物換物。我那雙愛鞋幸得有心人領走,才得以保存,得人愛惜。同時看來從此又有藉口買新鞋了。實行買了才算,荷包無損。又一環保慳錢好方法! --strangejoanne

已交換的一對愛鞋,有趣的是剛巧眼光獨到的交換對手是多年失去聯絡的朋友。lol

鬼鬼馬馬HENRY蠱蠱惑惑HOLLAND



LONDON代表house of holland的AW11/12 FASHION FILM別有一番風味。沒有華麗堆砌,沒有大顆明星照亮招牌。只用上型女IT GIRL好友PIXIE及DREE玩RPG,有懷舊美國廣告風格。佻皮3人組合以PARTY心情做主角,帶動觀眾立刻想要穿起色彩繽紛的CROCHET外套和直條短襪,加入整古做怪一番。睡衣PARTY不仿選擇那絲質印花套裝,也能令人想入非非。

HENRYHOLLAND的大膽色彩搭配正有LONDON SWINGING 60's的感覺。筆者喜歡英倫人的個人風格主義,同一樣的單品,各人演繹各有千秋。這是香港人辦不到的,因為我們失去歷史文化,這與創新創意創造力息息相關。要不然,街上潮人不會一式一樣一個LOOK。 -strangejoanne

The LFW has got House of holland. His new AW11/12 fashion film has been very different from all the others. It's nothing glamourous, no hollywood big star or celebrities in the film for the label. But he has found the cool it girl Pixie and Dree to play the roles. Fulfilling with the vintage American advertising style. 3 of them might be having fun like it's their insiders' party. It totally has brought me into the sence and I'd be wearing the colourful crochet coat and the stripe socks. If there's a pajama party, I'd definitely pick the 100%silk set.

Henry Holland has always put vivid colours in his collection inprired from the swinging sixties. I appreciate the individual style of english. They have fantasticly demonstrate the same item in variety of ways that suprise the others. This is what HongKongese rarely do because we have lost our history and cultural. There is defo a linkage with creativity and innovation. Otherwise we won't see the clone style everywhere in the street of HK. -strangejoanne

Cool Pauperish Fashionista 窮也要酷

窮也要酷
買要買,時裝是不能放棄的。可是家境小康,教我如何走在潮流前線,與一眾名牌上身的大師一較高下。打從甚麼時候,我就染上買平嘢的筆直習慣。朋友無一不感嘆本女的格價功,此非只局限於衣飾方面,食與行也不例外(住有娘家愛錫包辦,幸福無憂)。實行生活品味穿底價全包圍。

其實早前有一文有提及我的SHOPPING BEHAVIER。可是是英文版。現在我又突破自己懶惰的缺點打一下中文。
我的入貨店舖當然有超級2手店美芝。vintage是至愛,價格有上有下。當然美芝為下,而且不一定vintage。 除此之外還有草根MK,花園街,深水埗,街邊檔攤。HIGHSTREET有COTTON ON(男裝TEE是最愛)。其他的還有各大HIGHSTREET的減價。

我認為平野無好不是必然定律。其實這是眼光彩數加努力的成果。沒有柒人,只有懶人。因為當我要趕上班,不上粧,不配襯當天outfit之時,我感覺到自己無比難看。

讀者可能有感筆者孤寒又寒酸。我卻坦然承認我很師奶。可是能省下錢來,買到可遇不可求的,扮起有型,何樂不為?重點是,FASHIONISTA也不一定大穿名牌還有時下潮牌。(筆者是極度對潮反感的!)

所以,今後發表的新文章會特別加添新題材。今天靈機一動,何不專心鑽研及分享本女的自學廉價神功?
可能有助閣下找到絕色平貨。-strangejoanne

I just can't give up fashion (shopping) even I am such a pauper. My family isn't rich but providing me all the best. However, this is nothing for me to spend on those luxury labels and compete with those super fashionista. Since then I MUST find my way to get myself getting the on trend special cool stuff BUT BUDGET in hand.

All my friends have been amased of my budget spender behavier. Not just on clothes and accessories but also food and travel. I'd say this a a total package of lifestyle.

Shopping behavier has been mentioned in one of my previous post in only english. And I realise I may do a Chinese version. My favourite store is MeiGee in Mong Kok. they sell second hand and vintage. An absolute thrift store. Moreover, fa yuen street girly trendy shops and sham shui Po stall are my choices too. Fot highstreet, I usually go for Cotton on which has the best tee shirts collection. And of course those sale of highstreet are my life too.

I disagree with cheap stuffs ain't good. This is all about taste, luck and effort to look for the out standing goods. There's no1 tacky but lazy. Whenever I rush to work without making up and dress up, I look terribly horrible.

Readers you may find me too tight. But I mean it. If you can save up money, buying statement pieces, dress up and look cool then why not? The most important is fashionista is not restricted to wear only the super labels or the hittest brand.

So from now on I will try to add more post about the new topic, sharing my budget shopping skills. That might also help you to find out your taste of life in a budget way. -strangejoanne
