Matchy-Matchy: Gmarket Vintage Inspired Print Co-ord Set

DSC00777

Hi guys! I’m back! Yes, after stop writing for more than a year, I am finally back. But before we get into any boring explanations (that no one wants to hear) on why I have disappeared, I would like to share my latest (and continuous) obsession of matching sets with you.

It is no secret the matchy-matchy style has dominated spring and summer fashion in the Northern Hemisphere. After all, three outfits in one go, why not? I started my collection with a couple jacket-and-short sets, then slowly moved to the more girly top-and-skirt coordinated separates. Here is the latest co-ord set I picked up from a very popular Korean shopping site, Gmarket.

I was introduced to Gmarket several years ago but it was soooo difficult for someone who doesn’t know Korean to make any purchase on it back then. The site now offers an English and a Simplified Chinese versions, which makes it much easier to buy from them. Yet, a lot of the keywords in both versions are still in Korean. So get your credit cards as well as Google translator ready before you go onto the site. 😉

While spring is supposed to be around the corner in Australia, the weather in Sydney these days is terrible and capricious. As much as I can’t wait for summer to come and dust off my bikinis collection, I do need something more transitional at the moment. I love the vintage inspired print of this co-ord set, and the ¾ sleeves of the top make it perfect for this weather.

Mr. D was worried about this vintage print baggy top may look frumpy on me. He even called the top a “Grandma’s top”! So to avoid getting too “Grandma-y”, I paired it up with a bright orange statement necklace and bold orange lips to create a “matchy-matchy duo” effect. And he was sold! 😛

When the temperature is dipping, I’d throw on my trustworthy biker coat to keep it youthful yet toasty.

Well, there were a lot of reasons for me to stop blogging for over a year. But instead of dwelling on the past, I just want to move on and start writing again. To mark this new page, I would like to try something I have always wanted to, i.e. writing my blog in both Chinese and English. It is not a show-off, and the blog entries are not going to be a direct translation from either language. It is just something that I always have in mind, and always want to do. 🙂
