Once upon a time, a little girl had a wish.

Yellow, green, blue, purple, black…

Prints, gingham, stripes, oversize…

Red Lipstick, high heels, slim body and perfect couture…

Little, little her, wished she could wear her mother’s clothes,

and be as beautiful as her.

 

Now the little girl is no more that little.

She has a lot more clothes than her mother,

Yellow, green, blue, purple, black…

Prints, gingham, stripes, oversize…

But she made a different wish:

Time, please run slower.

Distant, please be closer,

and please, please keep my mother beautiful forever.

Inspiration

I remembered when I was a little kid, I always tried to wear something from my mother’s closet. My mother was young in her 20s and she always have the best style. Print long skirt, oversize coat…everything she wore were so amazing and classic. In fact, my family wasn’t wealthy at all at that time, so for most of her dress, she didn’t get them directly from the shop. Instead, my mother would go to those stores and pick up her favorite fabric and made her own dress. She had a perfect slim shape that made her look perfect on everything.

I saw the long prints skirt in her closet when I was home this summer and I knew that was the one I always wished to wear when I was a little girl. So I picked up a few more pieces: the print jacket from STF, my bikini from Victoria’s Secret and the heels from D & G. I can’t even explain how happy I was wearing my dreaming skirt. It is a priceless treasure of mine.

My mother is the most important person in my life. Not only that she gave me so much love and support in every single moment of my life, but also she set the best example to me to become a good woman. Happy, confident, brave, faithful, and kind…my mother is beautiful outside and inside.

I moved to U.S three years ago, so I don’t get to see my family as much as I used to be. From China to USA which is two opposite side of the earth and there is 12 hours time difference. But me and my family skype every day. We talk and laugh, share everything in our life and we realize more that how much we love each other every single day. Time and distance can’t fade the love among families.

 

故事

从前有个小女孩,她有一个愿望。

她希望能够住在妈妈的衣橱里。

黄,绿,青,蓝,紫…

印花,方格,条纹,oversize…

红唇与高跟鞋,苗条的身材,完美的曲线…

小小的她,希望能穿上妈妈的衣服,

像妈妈一样的漂亮。

 

如今小女孩已经不再那么小,

她有比她妈妈多得多的衣服,

 

黄,绿,青,蓝,紫…

印花,方格,条纹,oversize…

但她许了另外一个愿望:

时间啊时间,请你走慢点吧。

距离啊距离,请你靠近点吧。

还有,请让我的妈妈,永远美丽。

灵感

记得我小时候,我总是想要穿上妈妈衣柜里的所有衣服。我的妈妈当时才二十出头,年轻的她总是有着最好的风格。印花的长裙,宽松的加大外套,所有的一切都经典和近乎完美。事实上,我的家庭当时并不富裕,所以基本上我妈妈所有的衣服都不是直接从商店买来的,而是她自己亲自去挑选她最爱的布料然后自己裁剪的来的。拥有苗条身材的她,总是那么好看。

妈妈一直都很喜欢印花的裙子,我想这就是为什么这么多年以后,到如今她仍然保留着她的印花裙子。我暑假在家的时候看见这条裙子在妈妈的衣柜里。我知道这就是我小时候一直希望穿上的裙子。所以我挑选了其他几件单品:两三事的印花外套,维多利亚的秘密的比基尼,还有D & G 的印花高跟鞋和妈妈的裙子搭配。我无法解释当我穿上这条裙子的时候有多开心。这对于我来说,是无价之宝。

我的妈妈是我生命之中最重要的人。不仅仅是因为她在我生命的每一刻都给我那么多的爱, 而且因为我妈妈用自己给我树立了一个好榜样,去教会我怎样成为一个好女子。快乐,自信,勇敢,坚持信念,善良友爱…我的妈妈内外兼美。

自从我三年前来到美国之后,我再也没有那么多时间和我的家人在一起。中国和美国,12小时的时差,世界不同的两端。但是我们每天都skype联系彼此。我们一起大笑,分享生活的点滴。每一天我们都更加意识到我们更加爱彼此。时间和距离,不会让爱褪色。
