Just Sharing

These pictures are from The Sartorialist Book that I think these looks are interesting of color, pattern and textures combo.

I understand that everyone has their own style, taste and different sense for fashion. Maybe this outfit doesn’t look great to someone, but it looks super great to other people. I like to play with my clothing, take a risk of how I pair them and I have fun, enjoy doing it. Fashion is all about choices-the choice for our style with our own fashion sense. Also in life-our choice of manners, our attitude, and our words make us who we are. I appreciate your support and honest comment. We also have freedom of opinion with graceful or ungraceful words. Here and there, I received couple comments from anonymous with not-pretty words. I normally don’t moderate them and I don’t keep them in mind. Today, with my feeling, I feel like to share this with my graceful readers.

Last week, I went to see Scott Schuman-The Sartorialist, for his book signing when he was in Dallas. It was crowded but worth the wait. I have been learning many things from his book “It’s all about self-expression. I rarely shoot a look where I love all the elements. I don’t need to love the whole look: I just need to identify the one or two elements that mean something to me, and capture it in the romantic way I see it”……” Let’s just say it’s a positive and less judgemental way to look at the world”. In the first introduction he continues, “I hope that, as you look at the images…rather than giving a look a ‘thumbs up’ or a ‘thumbs down’, you will focus on the elements that could inspire you. Maybe you’ll find inspiration in a colour combination, or maybe in a play on textures or a mix of genres”

English is not my first language, as many of you already know, but hopefully what I write is pretty enough for you to understand. I don’t get to visit all the blogs as often as I used to, simply because I have a house full of family! My parents are here from Vietnam for 6 months, and I want to spend as much time with them as I can. And let’s don’t forget the two new puppies! They are a handful. Thank you all very much for reading my blog. I’ll do my best to keep you interested and coming back.

Have a great day to you all!!!
Big hugs…Hanh;-)

  1. Well said Hanh, you can take inspiration from many things, and what sparks an idea in one peroson will be totally different to another! Enjoy your family time,

  2. I love your blog! What you write is always interesting, and I love how you experiment with fashion, and how you always manage to look so amazing! Whatever some people my say, I support you!

  3. I normally hate print mismatch, but these photos are all very interesting. Jealous of you going to the book signing – I'm sure it was lots of fun!

  4. what a wonderful post! i feel the same about fashion as what you've stated, and what scott also said. lucky you, going to the book signing!

    i haven't gotten that far in the book yet to see those…so it's a sneak preview for me. gorgeous selection of pics.

    sorry to hear some of the comments have been rude. it astounds me how ugly some people can be, with no reason whatsoever. i've yet to encounter this on my blog, but like you, i probably won't moderate them. there will always be a few jealous, rude types out there.

    keep up the great work- your blog is inspiring and fun!

  5. I think exactly the same as you!! and also the same of Mr Shuman!

    have your family around is such a beautiful thing! spending your time with them in the most natural thing you should do.
    big kisses

  6. indeed, taking risk with your clothes is always no risk if you truly like what and how you are wearing!
    actually I loooooove these outfits….

  7. i think playing with your clothing and not taking things so seriously is SO IMPORTANT!!! I LOVE that you embody your own personal style.

  8. Hellooo Hanh,
    your sweet comment took me directly to your blog ;)
    Oh yes.. I love to go to Italy especially the Tuscany area … and it´s just about 1 hour flight away from here ;)

    Lucky girl!!!
    He was the very first I recognized with his street fashion. So inspiring, sometimes a little bit curious but it´s always great to see how people like to dress!

    Happy sweet tuesday to you and your biiiig family!!!

    GOOD NIGHT & SWEET DREAMS!

  9. hey hanh, I have the book too. I love it. Sometimes when I don't know what to wear I take the book and get inspiration. Love your blog and wish you all the best.

    xoxo zola

  10. hi hanh.
    you're so lucky to see Sartorialist in person.
    i adore all photos from these women with their
    own unique fashion style.

    don't worry about the bad comments. i used to get bad
    comments too. huh! not only bad comments but i got an
    email from somebody too saying nasty things to me. my goodness, it wasn't a good way to start my day getting bad comment from her that morning. also, somebody made an exclusive post about me and took my photos and mr. freddy's without permission. but, i didn't say anything back to her. to take revenge on her, i reported her to blogger customer service then blogger suspended her blog.

    have a good afternoon to you hanh.

  12. Hanh, your blog is one my favourite blogs on the net, please never stop writing! ;P

    And I think you write brilliantly, so honest and interesting :) I am a law student who reads your blog in between The Economist and Financial Times articles, and it is a true pleasure to read every time.

    Love xox

  13. I agree, it's not about hating on each other or making negative unconstructive comments, but celebrating each other's daring! It's a fine line between criticism that helps and those that hurt.

  14. Oh my God! How pricey, so much more than I imagined! However, I am happy you make it!!!! I am so glad for you, congratulations!
    I am panning buying my Louboutins in Paris next march…I hope I can afford a less expensive one..haha
    Kisses and hugs girl!

  15. Hi hanh, Self expression is a role that most people find hard to portray in everyday life either because there scared to or they just follow a trend! Critisism and negative comments usually come from people who are frightend of showing there true self! i think your blog is constructive and full of self expression in many ways thats why you have so many fans!! including myself. Have a great day :)

  16. Oh hanh. The moment i saw your blog I knew English is not your first language and so was I. And i don't see anything wrong with how you express yourself. There are so many sad people out there with limited understanding. Shrug them off. The important thing is that you are so FABULOUS! hhihihi.

    Stay strong! Stay happy and keep sharing.

    as id alike to say, Sharing is caring. And you're inspired so many people by just reading you blog.

  17. A nice coincidence: I just received my copy of The Sartorialist today. :)

    If you enjoy The Sartorialist book, you could also check out the book entitled "Fruits" by Shoichi Aoki. It's compilation of Japanese street style photos, and it's very different in spirit from The Sartorialist.

  18. i really agree with you… that what fashion is all about
    and i love the picture i been wanting to get the sartoralist book i just keep on forgetting yeah i'm lame thats awesome you went to the book signing =]

  19. Yeah, the internet has its pros and cons. Nasty, ugly comments are some of the cons. I used to have a website back when I was younger and stopped updating because a couple really nasty comments made me feel ashamed. Looking back, I should have held my head up high and kept doing what I loved. Today, I think I will keep that lesson in mind.

    People will be people and I don't understand why some enjoy tearing others apart and bringing them down. Don't let them get the best of you. Those who love you will accept you for who you truly are. The rest who really don't care, don't deserve an ounce of your worries.

    Keep doing what you love and don't let anyone tell you otherwise!!

  20. Wait… you have two puppies now?? Wow, I thought it was just the one, but I can only imagine how much work it must be, to have a full house around. It must be really nice having your parents over though!

    I think fashion should never be taken too seriously, which is why I prefer streetstyle than editorials. I like seeing people who obviously enjoy trying out different things, rather than people who try too hard to look cool or edgy. The last look is my favorite, just because I like the clash of patterns she used.

    Did you get a chance to speak to Scott Shuhman? I'm bummed I missed him when he was in Paris, but I did enjoy meeting Garance!

  21. You know thats what i love about fashion, everyone has their own interpretation of it. I have had this book since the day it came out and have browsed through it hundreds of time and yet when i saw these pics today, i couldnt recall seeing them and when you pointed out your resons for liking them, i could see the beauty of textures in them. and thats whats great about blogs….so many different points of view.

  22. i thought you write rather well for someone whose 1st language isn't english. and i'm really quite fussy about language.

    quite true what you said here. so if a certain look is good on one but not good on another, then is it not reasonable to accept with grace the criticisms when the case is against us? part of the whole experiment thing, no? do we really prefer less honesty? i'm just wondering out loud these questions. they're not directed at you or anyone in particular.

    i thought your last outfit was quite fine. the CL shoes didn't look out of place on your petite frame and the proportions of the garments didn't overwhelm you :)

  23. Aw, I was at the signing, too, and actually hoping I might see some bloggers from Dallas–can't believe I missed you:( Wasn't Scott just the nicest? Totally worth the wait:)

  24. dont pay any mind to the negative comments, w/ a blog that has gotten as popular as yours some meanies just like to come along. it is more of a reflection of what's going on in their life then yours. :) i think there is a big difference btw constructive criticism and then some people are just down right nasty mean.

    i know on the sartorialist he uses the term "abstract inspiration." which i totally like, because sometimes i will see someone and while i wouldnt wear what they are wearing i can find inspiration in the proportion or the color combination…
