I’m Rosie, welcome to my little column on the Lovintage blog where I’ll be sharing tips, trends and musings on fashion.
To give you a short introduction, I was born and raised in this perfect blend of old and new that is Hong Kong. In terms of my credentials, I’ve had bylines at PEOPLE and Glamour Magazine, a stint as a stylist at a luxury New York City firm and a hand in producing events such as the Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Show in Hong Kong. Oh, and in my spare time, you’ll find me writing or piecing together outfits and gifts guides for my blog, Through Rosie Colored Lenses. Needless to say, my love for fashion journalism speaks for itself, and I can’t wait to take you on my style journey on the Lovintage blog.
Now that we’re properly acquainted, let’s talk fashion! During this transitional period as the weather cools yet the sun is still ablaze, I’d look into my closet and find it rather difficult to choose a color scheme. It’s no longer warm enough for the bright hues and floral skirts yet it’s not quite autumnal enough for my favorite burgundy and camel ensembles. The solution? Black and white monotone outfits that are never out of season.
I still reach for my favorite tees like this Chloe polka dotted organza top, but instead of the light-wash distressed denim I favor in the summer heat, I now wear these crop flare black jeans whose asymmetrical hem also happens to be incredibly on trend. For the final touch, the round, graphic vintage Chanel clutch actually gave the whole look a modern finish. It’s hard to believe that this avant-garde piece was a work of the past when both its shape and design are highly coveted and on trend today. Just one look at the recent runway shows and you’d see a plethora of designers from Loewe to Anya Hindmarch rolling out with round shoulder bags and clutches, eschewing the traditional rectangular shape for handbags and further proving that vintage styles are increasingly relevant today.
