The Beauty of Imperfection 不完美之美

Ever since I started my own styling business, I’ve received this same advice from different people. 在我開始自己的造型事業之後, 無獨有偶的從幾個互不相識的朋友那裡得到這個建議. “Try not to look always perfect.

Shanghai 上海雜記

Shanghai always surprises me with new things every time I visit. The evolution of the city is similar to the appearance of those female pop stars nowadays- with the new technology, they just look differently each time, which is sometimes hard to keep up for outsiders. 每次造訪上海, 總是能讓我驚艷. 感覺上這個城市的演化就像現下女明星二次發育一樣, 每次見到, 樣貌都有些不同, 而且很難趕上她進化的速度. What are my …
