I actually wore this last Sunday to my usual workshop class. It’s not exactly blog-worthy, but it’s comfy and functional, and perfect for a casual class.
Having taught these workshops for a while now, I’ve started to see that the students all fit into these five types:
– The casual movie fan who has no idea what he’s doing;
– The film buff who thinks he knows everything;
– The copywriter/ad/marketing exec who just wants to be a producer;
– The romantic;
– The weird kid who actually has some good ideas;
– And finally, that one guy way over there who wants to be a Director of Photography (and since cinematography was my weakest class in film school: sorry, bud.)
I have yet to see anyone that strays out of these. So either these classes attract very specific types, or I’m the insane type who insists on seeing patterns in everything 😛

Today the temperature dropped after three days of nearly nonstop rain, and I could finally join the fashion blogging world’s collective excitement for fall… Just kidding. I know the Vietnamese climate well enough not to look forward to fall. It’s warming up tomorrow. Besides, we don’t have a real fall here anyway. The weather is going to stay warm until November and then winter begins – looking through my archive from last year, I can tell exactly when the cold hit. So I might as well enjoy the boots and layering whenever I can, right? But not pumpkin. We have pumpkin year-round (mostly eaten as a vegetable, at least in my family) so it’s nothing to get excited about, really.

It’s another week here at Style Imitating Art, so let’s take a look at the interpretation of Jacques-Louis David’s Portrait of Louise Trudaine from all of my lovely blogger friends.
First up we have Rebekah of From the Mixed-Up Files, looking all ladylike:
Next up is the ever-awesome Pao of Project Minima:
Then we have our co-host, Vivienne of Thrifted Shift, in a simple but spot-on outfit:
And finally it’s me. I didn’t intend to wear the hat and jacket, but soon the cold and rainy weather of Sa Pa demanded them (not that I’m complaining. I love it.) I do find it funny, though, that everybody was in all these flowy, feminine silhouette, and I just went with the colors instead.

I took these pictures on Wednesday, when we had our first real rain of the season. Needless to say I was pretty excited… until I actually got out into the rain to take pictures. It’s pure luck that the place where I put my camera to shelter it from the rain also looks out at this Stop sign. Note to self: remember to bring a plastic bag for the camera next time it even looks like raining.
I also feel very “fashion blogger” in this (does that make sense?), probably because it was inspired by this outfit which has been circling Pinterest for some time.

I couldn’t do the exact Singing in the Rain pose (afraid of getting wet), so here’s my best attempt:
