The alley [Fashion post]

Hi guys,

This post is much later than usual because I’ve been quite busy last 02 weeks :). I’m glad it’s finally here because it feels like forever for me to show my new hairstyle lol.

Well, I found this new alley which is quiet just nearby where I am staying. The yellow wall gives it a Hà Nội breath within Sài Gòn. And the yellow shade of the wall brings a good contrast for my sky blue long vest. Most of all, the alley is so quiet. So I just love it.

My long flowing vest tends to flatten on the body because of both its form and material thickness. Meanwhile, my A-line pleated skirt is a little bit puffy. But both of them work well together, just couldn’t see the weird swollen parts caused by that puffiness :).

My wardrobe list is below the Vietnamese paragraph. Hope you enjoy the photos. If you like my post please subscribe here at my homepage for email new post notification :).

Hi các bạn,

Bài post đợt này lên trễ hơn gần 1 tuần vì TV bận quá :).

TV tìm thấy 1 cái hẻm nhỏ gần nhà, có một bức tường màu vàng vàng. Có một số hình chụp lên trong con hẻm này cứ tưởng như là chụp ở Hà Nội :). Hẻm yên tĩnh lắm nên TV khá thích.

Trang phục lần này TV phối một chiếc áo ghi-lê form dài màu xanh da trời, áo hai dây trắng  và chân váy xếp ly chữ A màu xám. Chân váy xếp ly hơi phồng, nhưng áo ghi-lê này có chất liệu khá dày và hơi nặng, dáng dài chạy thẳng xuống và có thể “đè bẹp” váy phồng nằm gọn xuống, không làm cho phần hông bị phùng lên, nên nói chung là 2 món match well với nhau. Áo ghi-lê sát nách dáng dài thường tạo cảm giác trendy, TV lại mới cắt tóc ngắn nữa nên có lẽ cũng khá hợp với style này, xem như một style lạ lạ so với các style có phần nữ tính trước đây :).

List trang phục như bên dưới. Nếu các bạn thích bài viết của TV thì hãy subscribe để nhận email thông báo mỗi khi có post mới nhé :).

Quiet Times – Dido

Ask me where I go tonight I go back to today last year.
Me and you had to make each other happier, now there’s hope with everything.

Its hard enough to feel the world as it is and hold on anything.
Without these quiet times coming round here.

I’m gonna have to run away, I’m sure that I belong some other place.
I’ve seen another side of all I’ve seen it keeps me wondering where my family is.

It’s hard enough to see the world as it is, and hold on anything.
Without these quiet times coming round here.

Now I miss you…
Now I want you…
But I can’t have you…
Even when you’re here…

Suppose I have to take you with me, broken mind I’d rather leave you here.
To forget everything you’ve seen and known erase every idea.

And you walk up in the street, and hold my hand and smile.
Well, I won’t be taken in, cus I know how it turns out.
And it takes me back to these quiet times coming round here.

Now I miss you…
Now I want you…
You’re not coming back…
And I need you…
But I can’t have you…
Even when you’re here…

Now I miss you…
Now I want you…
You’re not coming back…
And I need you…
But I can’t have you…
Even when you’re here…

Xin chào các bạn

Đây là post về fashion thứ 3 trong năm 2017 của mình. Lần này TV lại tiếp tục cổ suý phong trào vintage với đầm sơ mi màu xanh navy, nón vành rộng và túi mây nhỏ nhỏ xinh xinh. Đầm này nguyên thuỷ không có dây nịt thắt ngang eo, có thể mặc kiểu dáng suôn rộng thẳng xuống, nhưng TV thấy là có chiếc dây nịt thắt ngang nhìn sẽ đẹp hơn, có điểm nhấn và nhất là nhìn eo được nhỏ hơn. Các bạn có trao đổi thêm gì thì comment bên dưới cho TV nhé.

How much is too much? [Fashion post]

fashion post

fashion post

[Tiếng Việt bên dưới]

Hello guys

It’s Sunday again. And as of my commitment, this is the second fashion post after the last one.

In this post, I am wearing a pink off-shoulder dress, a burgundy hat, flat sandal and a little rattan bag. I think it brings up some sort of both vintage and countryside flavor there. Probably I’ve always been loving vintage and anything countryside though, which kinda makes me left out of this too vibrant city. I’m just kidding. 🙂

I dressed up this one to see my ex-colleagues in a café, and it didn’t go out of any of my expectations; I’d got teased about how I looked. They said it was “too much”. I would expect that, so totally felt no offense. And also, we gangs actually never give kind comments on each other. You know what I mean, when it comes closer, insulting and sarcasm have become an important part of the friendship.

But then, how much is too much? (Question)

(And my answer is) As long as you like it. You’ll just not get enough from it.

I have passed the time when I easily get embarrassed because of some sort of undesirable comments, just because now I know where I am, who I am and what I am doing… As long as I am not disturbing or violating anyone’s privacy or even eyesight… (I hope not lol😅). I’m also aware of different opinions. One or two or three comments don’t represent everything, it’s just personal idea… Even it’s good comments, I don’t have much trust… As long as I know who I am, I won’t necessarily need being flattered or brought down… As long as I know I’m OK, it means I’m OK; if I feel it’s not OK, it’s not OK.

Cheers,

Truc Vien

Hello mọi người,

Hình fashion hôm nay TV đóng vai bánh bèo nữ tính nhé. Lâu lắm rồi mới mặc màu hường thuỳ mị thế này, lại còn off-shoulder nữa tạo vẻ hiền dịu nữ tính hết chỗ chê.

Lúc phối màu thì có sẵn cái nón vành màu đỏ burgundy, TV thấy khá hợp ý. Ngồi nghĩ thêm một hồi nữa thì quyết định nàng đầm trễ vai và nón rộng vành này sẽ đi với em túi mây be bé, tạo một vintage look luôn. Về giày thì TV phân vân giữ giày sandal bệt và một đôi high heel. Cuối cùng chọn đôi sandal thấp này vì thấy nó casual hơn, sẽ mang đến cho look này cảm giác bình dân nhẹ nhàng hợp với kiểu countryside hơn.

Các bạn có ý kiến gì thì comment bên dưới cho TV nhé.

I go simple [Fashion post]

white shirt outfit

[Tiếng Việt bên dưới]

Hi guys,

Its been ages since my last fashion post I guess… I’ve recently committed to myself that I’ll make a weekly fashion post, every Sunday. I’m just gonna try to stick to this…

I think I’ve been trying to change my spontaneous personality into something more consistent. I’ve been experiencing that sort of spontaneity half of my life and deep inside I start feeling bored about it… I hope that this boredom can hike me up in a way.

Anyway, either it’s hiking me up or not, I’ll stick to a Sunday fashion post as my small step. I have experienced how well these small steps go and build up into something bigger. Well, even though sometimes it takes ages for me meanwhile it would take people only months lol. At least there is some movement ehem. *sweat*

Regarding the photos, I’ve gone simpler than any time in my blogging life. A loose white shirt + jeans + high heels and a neutral bag were already able to make me good to go. Ah, I wouldn’t forget a messy hairstyle which is my all-time fave which I believed can give me an effortless look *sweat*. Meanwhile I’m actually looking forward to managing my messy hair better than this lol.

Hope you guys enjoy the photos. Tell me what in your mind if any.

Best,

Truc Vien

Xin chào mọi người,

Dạo gần đây TV nghĩ là mình cần viết đều đặn hơn, làm gì thì đâu ra đó ra ngô ra khoai một chút. Cho nên sắp tới TV định hướng mỗi tuần sẽ có 1 bài blog về thời trang vào mỗi Chủ Nhật. Hi vọng sẽ được các bạn ủng hộ.

Bài viết lần này là sự trở lại của bài thời trang sau vài tháng vắng bóng và mải mê viết về chuyện yêu đương *cười nhăn răng*.

Về outfit kì này thì nói chung là tuổi tác càng “cao” mặc đồ càng giản dị đi. Ngoài ra TV còn thích mặc đồ rộng rộng thoải mái nữa, đặc biệt là trong thời tiết nắng nóng quá cỡ hiện nay tại SG 😅. Áo sơ mi trắng + quần jeans hình như ít khi nào bị lỗi mốt, TV thấy khá dễ kết hợp. Áo sơ mi rộng còn thường sẽ mang đến một cảm giác “effortless” cho người mặc nữa. TV đang dự tính sẽ tìm mua/tự may thêm vài áo sơ mi vải mềm hơn nữa để mặc cho mát trong mùa này. Các bạn nhớ theo dõi các bài thời trang tiếp theo của mình nhé.

Nếu có comment gì các bạn để lại cho TV bên dưới nhé.

Feeling refresh [Nha Trang Beach City – Fashion post]

beach outfit

beach outfit

Hello guys, it’s been a while since my last post. Recently, I’ve got stuck in something and I barely had time to update my blog. Never mind, I’m back anyway! 😛 I’ve just been back from Nha Trang beach city last week, of course, I’ve taken lots of photos and I can’t wait to show you guys here.  

Actually, I am editing a post on, kind of, “How to pack for a 4 days 3 nights beach trip”, but all is still in the process and hopefully, I can make it before next week, before I throw myself in the new week’s insane working schedule in the office. So meanwhile, I decided to post some of the looks first. This is my 2nd-day outfit.

beach outfitI didn’t know that we were heading for a church and a pagoda, so I wasn’t very well-prepared in terms of outfits  (the itinerary was thrown to me when I was already on the bus, so cannot blame me on this right? :D). Anyway, since I knew that we were going on formal places, I quickly threw on this full-length skirt, which can cover my whole legs and shorts underneath. Anyway, I didn’t get inside the church and pagoda, the bottom part is still safe enough for me to search around and have pictures taken.

I found this little white tee in a flea market a few weeks before the trip, just when I saw it, I knew it will definitely follow me to the beach haha.

I was wearing a sweet yellow bikini underneath the top but you can barely see it here.

I am so in love with maxi skirt recently. I find that I can wear it to so many places. When it comes to the beach, maxi skirt becomes a good choice for a soft, gentle, romantic look which suits the beach very well.

After the pagoda and church visiting, we headed for VINPEAR LAND, yay! You know what is Vinpearl land? It is a resort island located on 
an island within Nha Trang city, by reaching there, you can enjoy its water park, theme park, whatever park hehe. The price is not so expensive, around USD25/person, including 2-way cable car, all the games & activities you can have there (water park, games, 4D movies…). I just especially loved the lazy river, where I could throw myself on a life saver and just let the water roll me away, just so enjoyable and peaceful feeling :D.

Hey guys, many thanks to your attention.

Enjoy sunset [Fashion post]

ootd

ootdActually, there is not “sunset” there since there is no Sun :). It’s just a gray sky and a gray T-shirt girl standing over there :). Grey seems to be the color that really suits me, I’ve also got a great number of gray outfits in my wardrobe, but, to be honest, I don’t often like to pick gray for my working days. Recently my work is still overloading so I don’t feel comfortable to start a tough working day by picking such a “sorrowful color” to get to work.

However, I am out on a Saturday evening and heading for my boyfriend’s house. Gray seems to be a great color to look modest huh? Teeheeeeeee. And also, since gray is such a “modest color”, I add in this outfit a brighter element, it’s the shiny suede pink skater skirt. [Check out how to play with bright colors here.]

Thanks for your attention on my look. If you have thought that you want to share with me, please leave a comment below J. If you are interested in my look and have accounts on Lookbook.nu & Chictopia.com, please go there and vote for me!

Summer rains [Rainy day outfit – Fashion post]

rainy day outfit

rainy day outfitI have to say that I’ve been always in love with the summer rains.

I live in a tropical country, where we’ve often got rains in the summer. Especially, in the areas I’ve been living. Actually, I didn’t expect it would rain before the time I planned to go out for the photo shoot. When it rained, I hated it so much but during the short coffee session waiting for raining stop, I found that I can still feel the same way about the rains, the summer rains. It was just so beautiful… And I missed so much the childhood time, when I spent so much time hearing the sound of the rain…

So what I actually did is to purposely pick this colorful outfit today to fit my mood in such a beautiful rainy Saturday. I love how the yellow flowers on my full-length skirt match so well with the top. I added something fun to this outfit (rather than a super-soft-and-gentle look) by picking a huge rabbit bag.

rainy day outfitRecently I’ve been so obsessed with these colorful accessories. Do you think that it’s the very necklace which brightens this look?

Surprised [Feminine outfit]

feminine outfit

feminine outfit

Looking at the friends surrounding me all eagerly getting married or having babies, I can’t help being too surprised and sometimes I still feel quite shocked.

I feel shocked because I am still a single lady who rarely thinks about getting married at my 26 (yeah, you may right away think that I’m over-aged for getting married already haha) and even rarely think about having a baby in at least within next 02 years hehe. I feel shocked because there are too many of my friends already settle down their lives with their husband, and some with their babies. (I need to admit that, I really enjoy and even admire the lovely and sweet moments of a little family, the way how the young parents care for little first child, but I really can’t imagine my life would be mega-change after marriage.)

However, out of all the reason, I may list down here, mostly this feeling is because I cannot admit myself that I and they (my friends and people around me) already grew up. I feel so so uncomfortable thinking about the definition of “growing up”, yeah, isn’t that we are growing up or growing old. Getting married is one of the certain things people would do when growing up, need I get so shocked about that? It’s an absolute thing, isn’t it? Yeah, after some time – maybe 1 or 2 year, I need to admit it’s an absolute thing. Yet, I might still find it “uncomfortable” in some way, though getting married, being with your beloved partner may be one of the best things in life. Somehow, I just don’t feel I’m ready…
