An easy throw-on outfit from a couple of weeks ago when I insta-ed about the gorgeous breezy 23• degree weather we were having in Shanghai. I definitely spoke to soon because not long after, we catapulted to an insane 37• degrees at one point. W.T.F. Today is a balmy 34• degrees but we haven’t even reached Shanghai’s hottest summer points yet, so I’ve been told. At this point, it’s all about keeping cool indoors as much as possible. If I ever leave the house, I’m just trying to wear anything that is ventilating and minimal everything. The perfect cool-addition to a plain outfit? My new Givenchy Pandora from Backroom. It’s the best fucking bag ever cos it’s so huge which is perfect for bring-my-whole-house-out-with-me-just-in-case crazy me. Another bonus? It fits ever so perfectly in my bicycle basket.

I ordered the bag online on www.BKRM.com and it arrived at my Hong Kong home within a few days. Talk about SPEEDY DELIVERY! At first sight, my mom thought the bag was so huge that she called it a 去路 (runaway from home) bag and I died laughing. But yes I am one of those types who always have giant bags filled with stuff I don’t necessarily need but you know, you can never be too sure! One day I might be out with 5 friends and all 5 friends might all need a pen at the same time! You just never know..okay anyway the worst part about the BKRM site was that there is TOO MUCH GOOD STUFF ON THERE. It was so difficult picking out what I wanted because I literally want EVERYTHING (greedydd). The site was launched by two pretty sisters Pinky and Doris Ngie in 2012 and is the best easy-to-navigate go-to online store for amazing brands like Givenchy, Fendi and Saint Laurent Paris along with cool clothing brands like Finders Keepers and BWGH. They also have a gorgeous showroom in Harbour City which is definitely worth a visit and even just to say hi to the pretty sisters who are always there hard at work!

P.S. How cool are my Christopher Kane SS13-inspired nails? Total happy accident. The pink is Topshop Domestic Goddess and the pattern top coat is China Glaze Whirled Away.

In keeping with Hong Kong’s recent ArtBasel13 art fair, BKRM invited French-born, Hong Kong-based artist Charles Munka to takeover the site, redesigning different aspects of the site. Read more about it here!
