Zara black pants, H&M tshirt and drapey blazer, Lancel Elsa bag, Sam Edelman Zoes.

hehe me and my mama

Last Friday my mom had an event for Lancel Vintages By Studio Harcourt Exhibition at 1881 Heritage in Tsim Sha Tsui. The exhibition launched Studio Harcourt’s first ever non-portrait project and showed images of some amazing vintage handbags that come from Lancel’s 134 year old archive. I was fortunate enough to be gifted this bag by Lancel (The Elsa Bag). It was also great to finally meet Valerie from Marley & Me and Cindy from Cindiddy, sorry I was being so lame at first guys lol, I guess I was shy :S

heheh Denise Lai and her friends.

The food that was going around that night. Normally at these sort of events we generally like to hover near the food and drinks. That fish finger with tartar sauce was pretty dang amazing and they also had soft shell crab, but honestly, who’s going to eat tandoori chicken wings like that? Obviously, my brother and sister would.

H&M shorts, tshirt and drapey blazer, random DIY shoes, Emporio Armani accordion satchel.

Wore this out to meet up fellow Ladylike blogger, Sandy. So glad to have finally met up since we amazingly have like a million friends in common and she also is friends with half my family pretty much hahaa Anyway we spent the day walking around TST and I ended up getting this super awesome ring from this local store called Chapel:

Only $60hk/~$7us!!

mehhh I just realised we didn’t get to take any pics together! Doh!

I then went to China the next day, just for the day, and randomly scored this (what I think is) amazing ring from some little stall in the giant fakes mall in Luo Wu. It was only $50hk/~$6us sooo cheap!!

And for my last ring (umm, is it obvious that I love rings?) : I’m sure everyone has been dying for that popular Forever 21 two-finger cross ring. I can’t believe that in stores it sells for $5us but on ebay, people are selling that shit for like $40-60us! Such a rip off I swear. I saw it and was like, it’s cool in silver/metal but since I have some spare black wooden crosses lying around I thought, hellz, I could just make my own.

And this probably cost me about..$2.5us! Score! P.S. this will be selling in my online jewellery store soon (yes yes, i’ve been saying soon but i’ve also been very lazy).

I just wanted to quickly point out that I have started a Personal Shopping Service. You’ll notice my mini-banner there on the left menu (under my POP-UP SHOP). Click through and read about it if you want, or if you’re lazy: I’m basically offering a shopping service where if you see something you like on the blog or on someone else’s blog that isn’t available in your country but IS available in Hong Kong, then feel free to let me know and I will go out and get it for you! Of course you’ll hafto simply pay for the product and for the shipping costs but in addition, I do charge a teeny tiny tinsy twinky little baby service fee. Honestly, it’s just peanuts so don’t be shy to email me if you ever see anything you want! You can read more about it on my Personal Shopping Service page.

I’ve also recently added two more things to my POP-UP shop. The Chloe sunglasses are going for $100us and the Jeffrey Campbell Clinics sz7 are $130us. Please click through to see more pics and to get more info! Don’t forget to tell your friends! Tell your mom! Tell your dog!

And lastly, some Obi for you time:

A wonky tongue for a wonky dog!
