Salutations readers after a great week we all deserve a good seat down next to a pint of Honey Mead. If you haven't try Honey Mead you best try it, it is the drink of the gods, I say gods because I don't want to be a heathen. It's been two weeks since my last blog and like confession it's best to get them done in 2 week blocks. So without much further delay I would like to present to you According to Truong's spring fashion review part 2 evening wear.
Before we start I would like to write about the feed back I have been getting back from my friend Osman quoting " why are you writing about women's clothing?". This is an easy question, if you do your research on clothing you can save yourself time when your girlfriend asks you " do i look good in this?" all you have to say, yes you look good because I chose it. By showing an interest from the start it will help you along the way. Secondly, as a man growing up with 3 sisters I know that every woman is different and has moods that change like the Botany bay tide. In that fact, showing interest in clothing will determine how you treat women if they are on display then things will go downhill, if they dress accordingly things will start to develop internally.
Now spring is upon us, and thank God we have long day light hours and with long day light hours come long strolls along the harbour side. So what can one lady wear on such dates or outings in this dynamic weather condition. Well if you have clocked off from work and don't have time to get change then this review of Review fashion will surely help you along the way.
Date attire for evening outings
Diagram 1, Left model with black and white peony silk skirt.
When I look at this outfit, I just step back and say woah, double woah. And gentlemen if you ever feel this way, say to your date" you look absolutely ravishing!!!" and remember to look at the right places to avoid getting slapped. Anyhoos lets get on with the review.
Firstly, from the bottom the skirt has a classical peony black and white print. This sort of print does not go out of fashion and can be seem in many cultures . The versatility will help you if your boyfriend takes you to a Asian or European restaurant it will go well at any place. Secondly, the length of the skirt will help mobility especially if your date takes you out to a salsa bar, therefore you can really set the dance floor on fire. So mobility and modesty really go side by side and it aims at promoting mobility and freedom when your on these awesome dates.
The top half of this outfit is complemented with a silk blouse and light weight biker jacket. I really love this biker jacket because of it's cut and how it fits the arms and waist of the female figure very well. Not only does it look great but it will keep you warm in the dynamic spring weather. As you are aware I am a big fan of bikes.
Diagram 2. Right model Scarlett skirt Ingrid blouse.
One word here, this outfit is pretty! It's a complete unit that incorporates that first social outing meeting at a location in the city. Good places to meet are the Hyde Park Fountain, or the steps of the St Mary Cathedral. This unit allows you to go to work and go for that date you have been putting off for a while. So if you've been asked out a few times and haven't said yes, then this outfit can help you with that awkward date. Firstly, this outfit says I am pretty and confident, I am independent and I am not in a rush to fall into your arms unless that man is going to try extremely hard.
Lets start this review from the top to the bottom. The top is made from a silk/polyester blend with a nice cut and fit from the neck and shoulder lines expressing the feminine figure in a well blended format similar to that of a Honda S2000, the most notably is the fitted short cuffs that personally I really like on woman especially when she has her hand on her hips like the model, because I know I am in trouble. It's so much easy to read body language if the girl is dressing in a language we men can understand.
The skirt is just stunning for the price range, its blends model skirt cut style with a classical Romanesques motif on the lace finished with a small black leather belt. As my old computer programming professor would say, SIMPLE is beautiful and this skirt is the epitome of Simple and beautiful.
In short if she is wearing such an outfit she is shouting in your face, I deserve to go to a nice restaurant that requires a booking, with a table that has real cloth tablecloths not those paper ones followed by a desert that looks like this.
So if a lady is wearing this on your first date and you haven't booked a restaurant it's going to be a date FAIL. Sorry lads.
Lets get stuck into what we can do in Sydney this week. October is a great month, our nation's capital is celebrating the annual flower festival and what a great way to spend a day by visiting Canberra and strolling along the blossom filled boulevards. An amazing place that I have always wanted to explore is the little model village town of Cockington Green. So Sydneysiders set forth for our capital to enjoy these blooms before they wither. Deo Gratias.

After a few weeks of the dreaded and contagious bloggers mental block I am ready to write the next series of According to Truong. Spring fashion and why ladies clothing is very similar to modifications to cars.
First off, I do apologise for the dryness and lack of posts the past weeks and would like to thank you dear readers for coming back for another exciting series, where I will attempt to help to close the divide between understanding women. It's going to be very hard but like fishing it takes practice and patient, remember the two P's.
Lets start with why I think buying clothes with a lady is similar to modifying your car. This week I would like to start with the paint job and body kit. Like a car, the paint job and the body kit is the exterior appearance of the car and similar to dress, skirts, tops. However the major difference here is with a car, you usually only get one paint job and one body kit for the life of the car while you will have to go to at least three seasons a year with a woman. So be prepare and you will save time and money in your shopping adventure.
1. Choose your brand carefully.
When choosing a body kit for you car you always look for the best brands and best quality, for example you would choose a TRD kit with a Toyota, and a Nismo Kit for a Nissan, however you can venture into other companies depending on what you like, ABS resin or Cheap Taiwanese made fiberglass types. So before you go out there to help you choose some new clothing for your lady, search the Internet for what style you like, before you go out blind and get asked to walk endless through entire shopping malls. From experience, after about 3 dresses all dresses look the same and it is very difficult to tell the difference between red and pink.
2. Choose your style according to season and occasion.
It is extremely important to ask her, why do you want it? when are you going to where it, do you really need it? and is it made in China? when you have established these rules you can shop precisely and honestly for what you are looking for.
For example, before you start shopping, you have to be clear on what is this shopping expedition for, has she done some research on what she wants and will she wear it again.
Now that we have some ground rules lets start with some piratical examples of dress and my review of Review. I am big fan of Review because; number one it is made in Australia, number two their choice of material is excellent and thirdly their elegant style.
Day time dress for semi-formal occasions.
Why I like?
Simple design there are no extra bits to say "I am a rice cooker", beautiful motif which will ensure your dress will be wearable for another 2 decades, a nice colour that can go with a variety of occasions and skin tones. For example it is neither white or red so you could wear it to a wedding, then go to the beach and have a fish and chips.
Furthermore like buying car parts you want to look for durability. Since this dress if I am not mistaken is made i Australia it will be of the highest quality. Since this season Review has undergone a change and many of their dresses are Zipless meaning no more snags. This is pretty cool because once a zipper is busted the dress is pretty much gone. If your dress has a zip, remember to maintain it with lubricate such as wax or soap to ensure it glides, you can even put silicon or Teflon base sprays on your zipper to maintain the high level of zippiness especially for those quick 15min formula one style outfit changes. By maintaining your zippers you will have a dress wardrobe that is in tip top condition.
Beware, if your like me and always looking for a bargain, beware of fake copies especially on ebay. To avoid buying a fake off ebay, always ask for the tags, especially the unique security tag, they are as large as a British postage stamp.
I would like to end this first edition of the According to Truong fashion review and I hope to see you again in the further editions of my blog.
What to do in Sydney this weekend?
Gosh, it's been quite a while since I have been out, but the weekend outlook is for bright sunny skies. So it's festival season with a number of street festivals in Strathfield and the City, the noodle night markets. And if your into going to the circus, The Moscow circus is in town, all the way from Russia I think. So get out there and enjoy this beautiful spring weather.
