Describe a piece of clothing that you often wear.
You should say:
What the item of clothing is
Where and when you bought it
When you wear it
And explain why you like wearing it.
I’m going to talk about a T-shirt I have. It’s plain grey318 on the back, but on the front, there is an embroidered wreath319 that decorates the T-shirt. The wreath is very detailed and colorful, and it has the word “Lucky” printed in the center. At a quick glance320, because of its many details, the wreath actually looks real.
If memory serves correctly, I bought this T-shirt from Taobao about two years ago. At the time, most of my shirts were worn out321, and I was thinking about buying myself a new one. When I saw this T-shirt, it was love at first sight322 for me. I mean, it’s already rare to see embroidery on a T-shirt. Everything is printed nowadays. Such a unique design was everything I was looking for.
The shirt cost 100 yuan, which is steep323 for a T-shirt. Even though it I still think it was totally worth it. I basically wear this T-shirt all the time. Even in winter, I often wear it underneath my jacket. Some of my friends even asked me where I bought it because they wanted the same style of T-shirt.
The main reason I like this T-shirt so much is that the embroidery makes an otherwise normal T-shirt look very stylish and gives it a retro look325. Plus, maybe it’s the word “lucky” that is written in the wreath, but I always feel that I have good luck whenever I wear it.
