Make It Your, Do It In Denim 打造個人丹寧風格
I have always been looking forward to all events that are hosted by Ingolstadt Village (Located on the outskirts of Munich) and Wertheim Village (Located in the suburbs of Frankfurt). Each time, the villages organize impressive and exciting activities that make me feel like to get more. Moreover, I get to know many people and newly happen actions in the occasion; I am always inspired.
“Make It Yours, Do It In Denim” is the newest event that both Villages present to us. They use “Denim” as the focal point which is not only interesting but also down to earth that everyone can be part of the action. I introduce the event to you firstly, and then I show you the activity highlights I recorded on the day in the Ingolstadt Village.
From now on until at the end of October, as long as you purchase more than Euro 150 in one of the Villages, you can choose three patches that the Villages designed for us. Moreover, get a free service to create your Denim Style in the Patches Lab in the Villages. I also created my denim jacket on the day; I will show you later. Before we go ahead to read the article, I filmed and edited a short video for you to feel a vibe of Denim. Please switch to the HD quality and watch it.
以前覺得常有機會參加Ingolstadt Village（位於慕尼黑近郊）與Wertheim Village（位於法蘭克福近郊）兩大購物村的活動在撰寫文章分享上一定會出現瓶頸；不過兩大購物村所辦的活動一次比一次精彩，每每讓人期待，甚至在活動結束過後都讓人意猶未盡、留下深刻的印象。不光只是撰寫文章，其實更多是在生活中因為接觸了不同的人事物而帶來不一樣的靈感與感動。
這次參與「Make It Yours, Do It In Denim 打造個人丹寧風格」是德國兩大購物村這季推出的新活動，以不敗時尚單品「丹寧」作為活動主題，不僅很有趣，同時具有親和力、人人都可以參與。先介紹活動的詳細內容，我們再接著往下看當天的活動花絮。
從即日起到十月底止，到德國境內兩大購物村Ingolstadt Village（慕尼黑近郊）與Wertheim Village（法蘭克福近郊）購物滿一百五十歐元（任何品牌與商品），憑發票就可以免費挑選、兌換三個可愛的Emoji織品布貼；如有需要，在購物村內也提供燙熨服務站，只要把想燙貼的衣服交給服務人員就可以現場幫你燙上。我也挑了三組Emoji圖案，在購物之後馬上到服務站設計自己的牛仔外套，實在可愛。活動當天，我也錄製剪接了一小段影片，別忘了開啟高清畫質觀看喔。

It also caused a problem that I would like to have all of them.
每次到購物村最令人感到驚喜的就是這裡的戶外設計與佈置；配合不同季節與活動，工作人員都會花費心力、絞盡腦汁替到訪的遊客準備一幕幕賞心悅目的裝置與佈置；而我們也有了最好的拍照背景。這次配合「Make It Yours, Do It In Denim 打造個人丹寧風格」活動，參與的品牌在展示櫥窗內紛紛陳列出與丹寧相關的設計單品，一列開來很有質感，也可以幫助我們更快了解各個品牌新到貨的商品，不過也令人心花意亂，什麼都好好看、什麼都好想要呀。
BMW Motorrad x Ingolstadt Village & Wertheim Village
What a surprise! Ingolstadt Village and Wertheim Village let BMW dresses in a total look of Denim. Both Villages have cooperated with BMW to present a new look of Denim for one of their motorcycle models ; BMW made this magic happened. If you take a look at the photos I took above, you will see the excellent details of denim and leather. It is not difficult to imagine how much effort BMW invested into the project. There were many men take selfies with these two motorcycles; how they made their faces to match the mood of cool and heroic were one of the best parts of the action.
The other highlight of the event was the German actor, Hardy Krüger Jr. took part of the progress and presented the BMW denim motorcycles. I had never been a big fan of motorcycles; however, when I saw how he rode the motorbike, I think that was charming. I also had an opportunity to chat with the BMW commissioner about the denim creation. I could see his shining eyes were full of pride and joy; I was touched. If you plan to visit one of the Village, do not forget to take a look at the BMW motorcycles.
沒有想到購物村讓BMW重機車也穿上丹寧裝了！購物村與BMW合作，藉由BMW的技術替重機車改裝成由丹寧布與皮革所包裹的設計車身；細看上頭所拍攝的照片細節，不難想像在BMW設計總部所花費的心思與時間，成果也令人愛不釋手。這兩台BMW丹寧重機車讓活動現場所有男人都為之瘋狂，紛紛舉起手機做足豪邁、狂野的表情與重機車自拍，真是太有趣了。活動這天另個重頭戲就是請德國演員同時也是購物村的代言人：Hardy Krüger Jr.出席拍攝宣傳照片。Hardy Krüger Jr.在細雨中整理安全帽、手套、準備靚裝出發的神情很是迷人；原本對重型機車是外行的我竟也覺得這樣的姿態確實令人著迷。
The only Blogger who does not know how to take Selfies
Meeting Hardy Krüger Jr. has always been like meeting an old friend. We sometimes see each other in different events; we give regards and chat. We both would like to take selfies, he was done, and I was trying to take one with my smartphone. However, I just could not make a nice selfie. He wondered but helped me with my smartphone to get this picture. I think I am the only blogger who does not know how to take selfies. What a shame.
這天見到了像是老朋友般的Hardy Krüger Jr.很是開心，我們總是在不同場合的活動中碰面，彼此問侯。兩人想自拍，各自掏出手機，他的拍完了換我；卻見我的小手拉長了臂膀完全不聽使喚，這自拍就是不成。Hardy Krüger Jr.見了無奈只好伸出手說：我來吧。這才有了這張別人拍的自拍照；我想，我大概是全世界唯一不會自拍的部落客吧。（苦笑攤手）
A casual yet stylish look when going shopping
I have learned from the experiences that I must dress comfortable clothes when I visit the Villages; longtime standing for an event, also a shopping tour after the event. However, I also have to make sure that I still look stylish even I dress casually; you never know whom you will meet on occasion. I wore this hoodie pullover with a long silk vest to create a stylish yet comfortable look. The style of hoodie pullovers is just on the trend that you can wear them anytime and create unique styles.
What I Wore : Jake*s Sweatjacket with hood, ASOS White Long Vest (similar here), Jimmy Choo Flat (similar here)
My favorite Hoodie Pullovers

When I visited Ingolstadt Village, I focused on a gift for my husband as his birthday present; also, some beauty products for myself. It is a kind of happiness to choose daily life supplies for our home, moreover, to make a picture when my husband carries this wallet that I prepared for him.
Create Your Denim Style
After the event, I came to the Denim Lab to create my unique style on the denim jacket I received from the Village. At the same time, Hardy Krüger Jr. was also choosing his patches. Choosing only three pieces from more than ten designs was hard; when I looked at Hardy Krüger Jr., I knew I was not the only had the decision trouble. After your selection, just let the service staff knows where you would like to stick the patches; around ten minutes, you will have your special denim style. I will show you my denim jacket look in the next blog article, stay tuned for the update.
活動結束之後，也差不多要返回慕尼黑，離開前先到燙貼服務站替剛入手的牛仔外套貼上自己挑選的Emoji圖貼，剛好Hardy Krüger Jr.也一同前往。購物村推出十多款設計圖貼，突然覺得自己陷入挑選的困難旋渦中，不過轉頭一看，不只是我，其實大家都是呢（笑）。選定之後直接跟工作人員說明自己喜歡燙貼的部位，大約十分鐘就可以拿回自己設計的衣著。至於自己設計的牛仔外套先讓我賣個關子，下一篇文章與你們分享整體穿搭。
