Maxi Moment @ I.T


Top and jacket: Forever 21// Skirt and ear cuff: Asos// Boots: Topshop

I've gotten used to calling the second day of Fashion Week 'streetstyle day', because it's the day of the always cool I.T. show, among a few others. I don't know what it is about 2015 though, but many of the shows are more somber and feature more monochromatic palettes. If you still remember the show last year (or you can find it here), it had ninjas, models decked in shiny gold and silver, oh and ski masks. This year was a lot less shiny. But it is still so street cool and I would wear any of these pieces for everyday.

For my outfit, well, going with the theme, I wore my most Alexander Wang-ish top with my red perfecto and a maxi skirt. Yep, It felt equal parts cool and yet glamorous, but that's just me. What do you think? And do you like this year's collection? Talk to me!

See you soon,

Jumpsuiting @ Fashion Extravaganza '15


Jumpsuit: Boardwalk// Coat: H&M// Perfecto and necklace: Forever 21// Shoes: Natasha// Bag: Nessa

Hi lovelies! Yep, here we are again with this year's Fashion Extravaganza, this time hosted by Audi HK. The event featured another four up and coming designers from all over the world: the geometric, super cool designs of Ground Zero (Philip and Eri Chu); the nude palettes and floaty fabrics of Loris Diran; the 70's comeback happening at Beauty Berry (Wang Yutao), and finally, the moody. dramatic designs at Lars Wallin.

This time I decided to sit through the show instead of standing (and crouching, and sitting on the floor) at the Media Area. So, just a few choice photos from each show -
It still excites me so much to see beautiful creations made by talented people. What excites me even more is seeing friends and familiar faces again, like Ira of Style Kush and Krisha of Manila-Hongkie Girl. We made the party even bigger by bringing along two of our friends with us. With this group of crazy, fun people the conversation just went on going till the wee hours - which is why I'm posting this to you at this hour.

Outfit-wise, a simple, yet striking nude jumpsuit. Because why not, right? I thought it was an amazing piece, and though it was a bit too long and with not much wear to it - I couldn't help getting it, so I did =)  Oh and two jackets. I overestimated the weather yet again. 

Anyways, that's it for now. I really have to get some shut-eye.

See you soon,

Leopard!


Coat and pearl bangle: Stradivarius// Sweater: Pull&Bear// Jeans: Forever 21// Bag: Monki//Shoes: Natasha// Lippie: Avon

Yep, my precious finally comes out to play. A leopard (faux fur) coat is something I have wanted to own in forever. It just seemed like such a staple, and yet an excellent conversation starter. Imagine me, sleep walking through a store as usual - I usually refer to my method of shopping as sleep-walking, because I go into a coma for beautiful things everytime - and then I almost squeal out when find this in the sale section. The last in my size too, which means we're meant to be, right? If that isn't destiny, I don't know what is, For my first try, I wanted to stick to basics; perfect dark denim, white sweater and a matching leopard bag because, fun! I think the beanie added a little layer of street to the usually glamorous coat and lace-up heels.

I'm wearing these heels because Fashion Week is next week and my pain-tolerance level for beautiful heels is at an all-time low. Practice makes perfect right?

Anyways...you know how I used to tell you about those days that just come out perfectly, and everything's peaches and sunshine? This was not one of those days. I think this day existed solely to mess with me. Everything went wrong. I got into a fight with a racist asshole. I tripped on my way up the bus. I dropped my camera. All I wanted to do at the end of the long day was crawl back into my bed and just hide there for a couple of days. It's that bad. But the good news is that the sun will come out tomorrow right? If it rains, I'm gonna throw a fit! Whewwwwww...I got that off my chest. So, to summarize - fashion week? Coming soon. My day? Dismal. My coat? Perfection!

So see you soon lovelies -
