My Virtual Closet (Part 2)

Red has always been THE colour for celebration and passion in many different cultures, and with New Year's Eve countdown approaching, I'm hoping to spread some cheer, joy and luck with you! 

What are your plans for the last night in 2013? Who are you going to count "10, 9, 8..." with? What wishes and resolutions do you have for next year? 

In this post, I will continue to share my virtual closet with you. If you missed Part One, go ahead and check it out.  

无论是中国,还是加拿大文化,都对红色情有独钟。光是从国旗的颜色就可以看出来了。红色象征着热情,幸运,喜庆,所以在新年即将到来之际,我也希望跟大家冲冲喜。
你在2013年的最后一天有什么打算吗?会跟谁一起倒数呢?新年又有什么愿望和目标呢?

在今天的博客里,我会继续跟大家分享我的想象衣橱。如果你错过了之前的那一期,来这里看看吧!

Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014

Can't believe the final countdown to 2014 is just few days away. We'd like to invite you to recap the moments of Sasha's Satisfashion together.

  To be honest, to me, 2013 has been a roller-coster year full of unpleasant surprises and frustration. However, with the "downs", you truly get to realize all the "Ups" you have had and give you the motivation towards picking yourself up again. So I am fully ready to embrace 2014 with open arms and positive attitude. :)

老实说,2013年对于我来说,算是挺糟糕的一年。许多不好的“惊喜”和令人义愤填膺的时刻都不断出现在这一年里。不过,我觉得吧,正是有这些不好的经历,才使得当我们有甜蜜片段的时候,会格外珍惜。我已经昂首挺胸,张开双臂,准备好迎接2014了。 :)

One of the most important highlights of 2013 was definitely the beginning of Sasha's Satisfashion. Both Mr.S and I have grown so much in and with this blog. From an-iphone picture taker to a professional DSLR photographer, Mr. S admits that this blog has really pushed him out of his comfort zone to learn something he wouldn't imagine himself to. For me, not only my personal style has changed dramatically, but even my Adobe programming skills have also improved quite a bit. 

说起2013年,成立这个博客绝对是点睛之笔。我和S先生都在这一年里,与这个博客共同成长了很多。从一个用智能手机照相的人,变成了一个专业的摄影师,S先生也承认这个博客确实给予了他很多正面的压力,使得他可以尝试做一些自己以前无法想象的事情。至于我吧,不仅我的个人时尚品味有了很大的改变,就连我的电脑软件操作能力也提高了不少。

When going through the pictures we took since March, I was feeling slightly embraced. But then, the gradual improvement through each post has really gained my joy and confidence back. We thank you all from the bottom of our heart for being on this journey with us! I do know that there are still plenty of space for us to learn and to improve, and so we will keep on going forward.  It's so exciting to see where 2014 will take us. 

当我来回顾这一年的照片时,最初的照片令我感觉有点尴尬。不过,看到博客每次的照片都在慢慢进步,这让我又重拾信心和倍感喜悦。我们真心感谢那些一路陪伴我们走来的朋友和读者!我知道自己还有许多进步和学习的空间,所以我们会继续努力向前走。真的很期待2014年会带给我们什么样的惊喜!

Winter Wonderland

In today's winter outfit, I paired this super warm and well-tailored peacoat that I picked up from J.Crew last year during their Boxing Day Sale with a Joe Fresh plaid shirt and a polka dots rain boots from RainDropsTO, to create a playful school-girl look. 


Due to the ice storm in Toronto, around half a million residents have no power at home. This so called "the nightmare before Christmas" has really hit the city hard. Unfortunately, we are one of the Torontonians who are experiencing this. It is frustrating but also fascinating to see how much we rely on electricity in everyday life. This is something that we take for granted in daily life and don't realize how important it is until a black-out comes along. We can't see, can't cook, can't watch a movie, can't even charge our phones... Mr.S and I were sitting on the couch in our pitch black living room looking at each other(at least we think we were making eye contact LOL), and wondering "what can we do now?" However, we are lucky enough to have family nearby to spend the night with. 
        Hope everyone will have a warm and safe Christmas!

由于严重雨冻结冰,多伦多整个城市感觉像瘫痪了一样。成千上万的住户经历家中停电的情况。这所谓的“圣诞之前的噩梦”导致许多住户都要在漆黑中度过。不幸的是,我们也没有逃过一劫。不过,虽然停电使得人很焦虑不安,但是往好处想,也确实让我们更加珍惜生活的琐碎小事。本来是件容易被忽视的事情,现在却对我们的生活碍手碍脚,不能看电影,看书,煮饭,甚至手机没电了也没法充。。我和S先生就坐在漆黑的客厅沙发上对看,然后琢磨着能做些什么来打发时间。幸运的是,我们有亲人在附近可以让我们暂时过渡一下。
希望大家过一个温暖又平安的圣诞节!

Winter and Holiday Shopping at RainDrops (40% OFF)

Just in time for this holiday season, RainDrops Toronto is offering my readers 40% off to all the Winter items they are housing in their Yorkville store on Bloor Street.

Yesterday, I was invited to the store to meet up with the Co-Owner/ Senior Stylist of RainDrops, Natalie Jurcic, and to pick up some items I like. The space was full of goodies, from all kinds of winter coats, hats, boots to umbrellas. During the store tour with Natalie, my eyes were so occupied with cute and unique items around me that I couldn't even 100% concentrate on the conversation with Natalie. I was talking to myself: Oh, look at this cute hat...oh, that umbrella is so adorable...LOL

正赶上这个节日的购物狂潮,我的读者们可以在多伦多的雨滴小铺里享受六折优惠,所有冬天的大衣,帽子,靴子等通通都有百分之四十的折扣。
我昨天被邀请到他们位于Bloor街上的商铺去跟他们家的创始人之一,Natalie见了面,还挑选了一些自己喜欢的东西。不得不说,无论是他们家的帽子,大衣,还是雨伞,雨靴,真的都非常可爱,特别。

Although there were plenty of options for winter coats in the store, I had to admit that this red one was for sure my favourite (maybe because Christmas is around the corner?) I simply couldn't get enough of the detailed designs and light weight feel of this coat, yet its warmness and coziness.

尽管他们家有很多相当不错的大衣,但可能是圣诞节快到的原因吧,我对这件大红色的大衣特别情有独钟,感觉很应景。这件衣服的做工很精细,穿上也身感觉很轻盈。好温暖呀!

If you are looking to buy some holiday presents for your or your friends' children, RainDrops is definitely a great place to shop. They carry a wide variety of winter items for kids. I picked up this pair of rain boots without knowing it was actually a kids boots. But well, who cares? I'd love to be kids again. :)

如果你想给自己或者朋友的孩子买点什么圣诞礼物的话,这家店也是个不错的选择。他们家有很多儿童的衣服和配件,什么帽子啊,雨靴啊,可爱极了。

Burgundy Fedora Kinda Day


Fedora has always been my favourite kind of hat to wear, and yes, even in the Winter.

It just effortlessly brings out a sharp and chic look without having to try too hard.  Funny thing is that I have no idea why every time when I put on a fedora hat, I just instantly feel like I’m having a super power. Haha

对Fedroa种帽子非常意,甚至是寒冷的冬天,我也不能手。戴上种由西部牛仔帽改编和摩登化的帽子很自然地就能展出一种帅气十足尚可人的感。并且啊,不知道什么,我每次戴上种帽子,就感觉自己具有特别功力。哈哈

Wearing a varsity jacket on top of an over-sized coat has been a big hit on many runways this Fall/Winter.

At first, I could not imagine myself wearing this style as the layering seemed like the outfit was inside out. But then, I thought to myself: hey, you never try and you will never know. So I put on my varsity baby and warm over-sized coat just for fun. Oh my, I instantly fell in love with this effortlessly edgy style! And by adding a fedora hat, I just feel that I'm the coolest girl in the world!! haha

把棒球克穿在大衣外面在今年秋冬季的T台上大放光彩。一开始,我并不敢尝试这种搭配,感觉就像把穿衣服的先后顺序弄错了。不过后来当我尝试把它穿上身后,立刻爱上了这种新鲜的搭配方式。而且啊,它俩在一起的隔风能力还很强呢。这再次证明了一点,做什么事情只有尝试了才知道。

Winter Flare: Turtle Neck Sweater and Tulle Skirt



What kind of winter outfits can help us stay warm while embrace fashion at the same time in a chilly snowy day?

Well, I personally think a cute and warm turtle neck sweater is definitely a versatile and must-have piece that can help you make the transition easily from Fall to Winter and to Spring, and even from a work day to a night out.

想必亲们都会烦恼在这个酷冷的冬天要穿什么才会既要风度,又注重温度呢。我个人觉得啊,一件可爱又保暖的高领毛衣绝对不可少。它不仅能伴随你温暖入秋冬,能帮你顺利地过渡到春天,还是一件非常不错的从白天到夜晚的单品选择呢。

Tulle skirt has always been my favourite as it’s just so dreamy and feminine. But who says it can only be worn in a shinny Summer day? I think the fun part about fashion is that there is no rule whatsoever, so as long as you can wear an outfit to showcase your unique personality, then that’s all it matters.  What are your thoughts on this?


对了,你们喜欢篷篷裙吗?凭借着它梦幻般的感觉,我向来对篷篷裙都情有独钟。不过,谁说你只能在一个阳光明媚的夏季穿上它吖?我觉得吧,时尚之所以这么有趣,有一点就是他可以让你充分发挥你的想象力。只要穿出个性,没有什么不可以。你说是吧?

My Virtual Closet (Part 1)

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! I'm just saying a quick hello and hope you are fighting off the Winter Blues. If Santa Clause was real, I would beg him for a warmer and brighter winter this year!

Although I do highly appreciate many beautiful designer pieces, but sometimes either they are over my budget or not available in Canada, so I'd purchase them with my mind and put them in my virtual closet. During this holiday season, I will share some stunning items (at least I think so) with you in separated parts. If you have the budget, I'd say pull the trigger and go for it. But if you are just like me, well, we don't have to owe something to be able to appreciate it. Right? Okay, let's get started. As you may know, light pink will be a very big hit this Spring. So why not now let this warm and cozy colour lighten up your closet (or virtual closet)?

嗨,亲们,
周五好!我就想跟你们打声招呼,希望你们在这个郁闷的冬季里都过得开心。如果圣诞老人是真的话,我一定会求他今年给我们一个暖一点,亮一点的冬天!

尽管我对很多设计师的美丽高端产品和服饰都很欣赏,但是要么我就没那个钱去买,要么东西在加拿大就买不到。所以每当这个时候,我就会在脑海里把它买下来,然后放在我的“抽象衣橱”里。在今年的这个节假日里,我会分期给你们介绍一些我认为很不错的东西。如果,你们有那个经济能力的话,我鼓励你,买!但如果你像我一样的话,我说啊,咱们不用拥有它,也能欣赏它,是吧?今天我会像大家介绍几款淡粉色的东西。你们可能也知道,淡粉色在明年春季将会非常流行。所以,为什么不提前在你的衣橱(或抽象衣橱)里增添点颜色呢?

Get The J.Crew Look For Less

Hi everyone,
Have you started holiday shopping for your friends, families, or even yourself yet? Well, winter can be depressing sometimes with chilly winds and dark skies. But did you know that a study has found out that wearing bright colours can actually lighten up your mood? So finding the perfect bright winter coat has been a mission to me since the summer. Talking about colours, J.Crew is definitely the master. Whenever you walk in a J.Crew store, the bright colours just naturally bring out joy and excitement in the atmosphere. However, I have to admit that their price is not so appealing to me, so I normally wouldn’t buy anything till they have a big sale going on. But well, who would resist a J.Crew look: the mixing and matching, the sophisticated feel, and the out-side-of-box pairing? So today, I’d like to show you how to get the J.Crew look for less.

嗨, 亲们,
你们有没有开始为亲朋好友,甚至自己选购节日礼物呢?的确,冬天有时候会给人一种很郁闷的感觉,寒风凌厉,乌云密布的。不过,你知道吗?一项研究报告发现穿着鲜艳的颜色其实可以让人心情变得愉悦起来。所以啊,从这个夏天开始,我就在寻觅那件属于自己的鲜艳大衣了。说起颜色的话,品牌J.Crew绝对是大师级的。无论你什么时候走进一家J. Crew店,都能被店内喜气洋洋的气氛所感染。不,不得不承,他西并不便宜,所以我从来都是等他打折的候才会。不又能拒J. Crew的那种搭衣感呢?那种具有意的混搭,有品味的感意型的上班族服都以抗拒啊。那今天,我就与大家分享一下如何更少的钱来穿出J.Crew吧。
