各種類牛仔是夏擋不過 Denim A must and never die

多少季了,09年春夏到此,似乎牛仔不死。那年風光明媚,牛仔必備。

從ebay狠狠bid來一件牛仔恤,是淺色的,可是不夠淺,因爲不夠錢(Topshop也許有售淺牛,但budget以外,生活指數以上,原則之外)。於是跟同屋好友着手DIY,拿出大家不夠淺、未夠爛的牛仔玩弄一番。水+漂白水(tesco 的VALUE :P)再戴膠手套,一手把剪過的牛仔物體放進去,漂它好幾句鐘。那漂白水燻得一屋刺鼻,相信好友也不會忘記。另外,買回來的平價牛仔褲統統剪破掉,放到洗衣機,鬚鬚便應渾而生。

今天回流,平價靚牛仔彼彼皆是。無需再大費周章便找到理想牛仔。各色各樣,悉隨專便。這季筆者依舊鐘愛牛仔,只是少費心神DIY而已。—strangejoanne

It has been how many seasons for the trend of denim? Seems like denim never die. Year09 was the reborn of denim.

I hardly bidded a denim shirt from ebay which is light but not enough as my ideal one that topshop may have but they are costy as new season item. You know, how budget I am. It's defo not my principle of buying an expensive one. So I decided to do DIY with my housemate. We both brought out our not -light-enough denim to play around. Water mixed with bleach(from tesco value :P). then place the items in the solution for couple of hours. Also, to destreded the cheap purchased jeans and put it in the washing machine. The fringe came out!

Today I m bk. There are nice denim everywhere. I can find the ideal denim effortlessly. Choose whatever you like. I still obcess with denim without putting too much effort on DIY.-strangejoanne

The EXACT life I used to Be, I still belive in


Rachel describes her look as "80s throwback. People always comment on my shoulder pads and big hair, although I don’t mean to look like I am from that decade or follow a certain style tag. I just wear what I like." In 2011 Rachel says the key elements of her style will be sheepskin, Chelsea boots and tassels.

Her look is defined by big hair, heavy eye make-up and her £1 pair of vintage men’s brogues. She can't live without eyeliner - "it makes you look wide awake after the later nights, an instant transformation" - and her favourite item in her wardrobe is her leather biker jacket - "it was my dad’s during the 70s punk era. It's ripped, frayed, scuffed, but it's a family heirloom."


Hot picksStyle icons/influences: Kate Bush, Alison Mosshart, Edie Sedgwick.

Stores: Charity shops - Scope and PDSA - and car boots.

Things that would improve your life: If my student debt was paid, if oranges didn’t have pips in and bottled water was free.

Habits you’d like to lose: Daydreaming far too frequently, picking split ends, forgetting.

Events that you look forward to in 2011: Taking a road trip with friends when everyone returns from uni, warm weather and Edinburgh Fringe Festival.



Q&A
In your opinion do you have to have money to have style? No I don’t think you need money to have style. It is much more satisfying to find a piece of clothing in a charity shop or at a car boot sale, safe in the knowledge that when you go out no one will be wearing the same. Having more money would just allow me to have a more generic style, like buying a T-shirt from Urban Outfitters for £30, which loads of other people would own. Buying secondhand clothes allows me to own individual pieces.

Describe a typical day/weekend: Wake up, shower, dress, walk to lectures, walk back, have a nap if tired (regular occurrence), do work while being distracted by YouTube, sometimes got to the gym if I'm feeling energetic, if so shower again, be social and see flatmates etc, go for food in the refectory, come back, watch TV - really bad TV due to limited channels - stay up and talk with flatmates until like 2, every morning regretted, then bed.


Favourite hangouts by night: In Leeds - Faversham, Wire, Hi Fii. My kitchen.

Favourite hangouts by day: My kitchen, markets, charity shops.

Perfect night out: Pre drinks - friends come over or I go to friends', get ready to a good soundtrack, leave at like midnight, go to a few bars before the club, dance dance dance, leave like 4am, McDonalds or cheese on toast and tea at home, gossip, then bed.

Worst night out: No pre drink. Venturing to places you wouldn’t normally go to just to please other people. Then pretending to enjoy it, but failing to do so.

So, this is Mustard VS ketchp and BBQ sauce

今夏開始色彩狂徒 殺你一個措手不及 The Black is just black Let's murder by the colours

打開你的心扉,今夏開始迎接斑爛色彩到秋天。
香港fashion人們都毒愛黑色。當然黑色的好襯度爲10顆星星。但對於筆者這種不甘平凡寂寞的人,我會勇於嘗試不同的colour palette。特別由SS11開始這股迎面吹襲的彩虹潑墨誰也擋不過。

我特喜愛的顔色是血紅色,橙紅、梅紅、棗紅基本也不放過。配紅的還有貴氣紫,今天的芥茉黃,春夏新寵蘋果綠。黑就留下爲打底基礎。這樣的穿衣術譲人發揮大創意!

那怕你紅襯綠、黃配紫、甚至全身一個tone,也不會被説成色盲的fashionista。筆者對此感到興奮莫明。香港人會否就着這個大趨勢走上彩色的不歸路呢? -strangejoanne

Open your heart and welcome the colours since the spring summer to the fall winter this year.

HK fashionista all are in love with the balck. Black is always the black. Cool and easy to match but somehow boring. As a person who are fearless of trying new stuffs, I would go for a exggerated colour palette. Since the SS11, we have seen all different colours matching everywhere in every pieces and every collection. No1 can be an exception to avoid this.

I personally adore the colour of bloody red (my fav drink is bloody mary. LOL). I am also opened to all kinda red, such as scarlet, lipstick, russet and else. To match with my reds, I'd have gorgeous violet,today's outfit's mustard, new SS lover apple green. Let's leave the black as basic. This dressing way would defo bright up your fun and innovative days!

Never be afraid of the Green with Red or the Yellow mix violet, even a full set of tone on tone outfit. Cos u'll never be judged this year. I am totally excited ab it. Would HongKongese change their stubborn mind and go for the lovely colours? -strangejoanne


找來這個我鐘愛的色彩狂徒runway品牌!儘管是FW11,但還是無法抗拒!
This the the colourful brand I look at and obcess with it even it's FW11.

上街示威原因 : 使用政治暴力者可恨還是奮力抗爭者過份?

先有政治暴力者, 再有奮力抗爭者~ 先有説謊者, 再有講粗口者反擊~ 無可能相反而且並不是雞或蛋先之理.... 沒有人會在無政治暴力既情況下作出奮力抗爭!那是抗争甚麼?


真的要有少少遠見的人才知道為甚麼要上街。如高鐵, 有平價方案棄用, 此時當然相安無事, 皆因工程還沒開始。 到實質工程開始, 一律由市民去承受(先有菜園村、遲有大角咀,造價連通脹問題,不忘還有許多後續) ...


如果這樣遊行下, 香港就會改變,我們當然求之不得... 我們上街但求無愧於心, 結果是怎樣, 都只是中央話事. 它要鎮壓在香港來一次六四, 我們又能怎辦。 有人可以置道德於不顧, 可以完全不為下一代著想, 連自己的利益損失都覺得無謂... 是你們的選擇, 不過由所有香港人承擔. 我們要的好簡單, 人人有安樂茶飯, 人人用良知做人


向政府發聲不只是單一要求甚麼利益,是一種公民的覺醒,是你權利。 我們年輕一代除了工作、學習、交友及玩樂外,亦須要替社會把一把脈,這是一種生活模式(lifestyle)。 你對社會有任何不滿,讓政府和其他人知道 ;無,就代有須要的人發發聲,凝聚實力。政府要聽意見或乃執迷不悔,是他的選擇,結果由整個社會(國家)去承受;畢竟你曾參與過。歷史,你有份編寫。

連利比亞人民都不想活在戰亂,可是當權者無能統治,大石擲死蟹。

不反抗、無自由。


我們不能光看事情的表面。是這樣的一個社會和政制,令人民要譲政要看見抗爭,不是任人擺佈。亦可憐了奉命行事的警察及他們的挑釁和不必要的小動作(這些是沒有參與遊行的大衆所沒有看見的)。我們多體諒警察的辛勞,但又有多少人明白示威者犠牲的苦心。
