Shanghai has encountered a few typhoon days since last week, and we are basically kept at home all the time these days (moody)! Even I’ve moved back from Hong Kong to Shanghai, it looks like I always have a relationship with rains and humidity, however, I am absolutely a person wanting to stay under the sun all day, and if there would be a cup of great coffee and some breeze, I can stay for 2 days (maybe).
Earlier last week (right before the typhoon arrives), I caught up with my girl friend after morning gym section and a bit coffee-work (working while having coffee). We decided to meet in French Concession which is the very much lovely area in Shanghai – located in the city centre, full of trees and beautiful old houses along the streets, and when we start our little hanging-around on An Fu Road, we are lost and just cannot stop to take outfit photos with those amazing boutiques and cafes.
Here I am to share with you my recently purchase from Topshop. It’s not an impulsive purchase as I only made my mind to get it from the shop after third-try-on! The vintage dress comes with a short dress and a button-down top, but with exactly the same floral prints! Lovely right? I tried on all 3 pieces however, I still respect my first impression – the midi dress, coz only this dress is encrypted with beautiful vintage soul – the bubble shoulder and the extremely soft texture to show the great cutting and the design. It might be a bit long on me (OK, I am small and with short legs), but who cares?!
台风到达上海的前一天约了女友出去补充一早健身房里挥汗如雨和咖啡馆里为工作绞尽脑汁所消耗的卡路里，首选”闲逛地点“便是我狠狠狠喜欢的法租界 – 一个被梧桐树盖满的四通八达的巨大街区，一个藏着无数精致咖啡馆、餐厅、酒吧和异想天开的新retail business的试验区，一个结合着上海建筑和租界欧风的时光机。我们”空降“安福路，别看小小一条林荫小道，我们的一整个下午几乎都泡在这几百米的街上了。
这天穿着之前在香港Topshop入手的中袖复古裙出街，正正好好！复古的设计也算是应街景了，要知道这条裙子我可是前后试了3次才入手的，倒不是价格昂贵（大家应该都知道Topshop的价位吧？）而是我一早就决定逼自己拒绝不理智”剁手“！最喜欢这条裙子有点复古泡泡袖的肩部设计，选料不算上乘但也来的贴身舒服，倒是显得腰部线条恰当好。印花也以稳重百搭的黑色为底色，免得一不小心变成花蝴蝶。同材料和印花的其实还有短款button-down top和迷你裙，其实我都试过了，但最终还是比较喜欢第一次试上身的midi款，也唯有她有复古泡泡袖的细节，实在要挑刺的，就只能说这midi dress的裙摆长度稍长了些，但只貌似只能怪我人不够高吧。
Dark Floral Ruched Midi Dress link on Topshop’s e-shop is here, also the sister mini dress and the top are here and here. If you are interested, check the links, and only a few sizes are in stock now. Topshop is having 50% off for quite a lot of past collections, including the midi dress I have (cry, my credit card), therefore I’ve also put few links of similar vintage style dresses here , here and here, and top like this. It sounds a good idea to do something now, haha, and a little tip from me: try to group your orders above £100, then you will have a super fast international delivery for free!
// 这条裙子的官方产品名是Dark Floral Ruched Midi Dress，链接在这里，喜欢短款和迷你裙的，可以点击这里和这里，已有缺号断码的现象了，手要快！这会研究Topshop外网，发现她们家目前有上百种产品已经被拉入50%折扣区（包括我这条裙子，蒙眼我不哭），我也挑了些其他类似这条复古裙的裙子，譬如这几件（1|2|3)，另外也找到同风格的top，如这件。之前在Topshop英国官网的购物经历又快又准，DHL好像是四五天就送到，一次订单超过100英镑就能免邮，官网上的货品远比香港实体店里的多很多，还有联名明星款，价格也统一要比香港定价再便宜一些，这必然是要搭单购物的了！
