Gothic Essence

On this week’s Rhapsody Monday, we took a visit to the Trinity College Chapel (as we talked about in our previous post) in the University of Toronto. It was fascinating to see such beautiful architecture existing on campus, and since we had classes right after, we decided to do a very quick photo shoot.

The chapel is located at Trinity College, Hoskins Ave., Toronto, where we also published another blog post on. Its design has an essence of European gothic style, which we found to be very different from many other chapels in Toronto. The second floor has a large pipe organ, which is often used by the music students and faculties.

The chapel was the last work of a British architect who also designed Liverpool Cathedral, the Cambridge University library, as well as the famous British telephone booths!  For anyone who’s interested, click here to see its full historical background. The chapel provides services throughout the week, but from time to time, the chapel becomes empty and quite. If you pass nearby, feel free to go inside and keep yourself a moment from the busyness of the city. And yes, they also provide wedding services *wink-wink.

Yu: Usually during my school days, I like to dress comfortable for those long hours sitting in classes. This is where all my jumper dresses come into play, and out of all that I own, the ASOS one is definitely my favourite. The shoes are vintage pieces gifted by my mother (s/o to the most amazing women in my life!). They are real leather and were handcrafted in Italy. The only downside to them is that the soles are very hard, which makes my feet feel sore after a certain amount of time, and also slippery when walking on snow/ice. But none of that matters since they look so pretty 😀

Yico: You guys may notice that I wear sweaters really often and match them with different bottoms like a pair of pant, jeans or skirt. I am kinda lazy in winter so sweater is always my top choice, and I only need to take my jacket, then I am ready to go out. As I mentioned in first post, I bought about a total of 10 sweaters this year. (I should stop but I  just cannot, the struggle lol).The one I am wearing is from an individual store back in China, I am so obsessed with the deep green colour, and  it has vertical stripes give a trendy look than the plain ones. The material is a mix of mohair and wool which makes it super warm.The high rise skinny jeans is from Forever 21 and I have to say it is so soft and comfortable!!!
