F21 white tee, H&M men’s flannel, Zara boyfriend blazer, Topshop jeans, D&G Miss Pocket bag, PedderRed buckle wedges.
Excuse the extremely shitty photos. I took them on Tuesday after going to a screening of “An Education” (thanks Butterboom!) The movie was amazing of course, but more on that in another post. If you follow me on twitter, you’ll have read that one of my biggest fears is being mistaken as a boy. I know, I know, kinda ridonkulous but seriously, it’s just another one of the crazy things I think about. This outfit had me all conscious all day. Originally I wore it with my all black vans authentics but I felt that I had to “girl” it up a bit so I threw on my PedderRed buckle wedges later on in the evening. Thank god no one said “Excuse me sir” to me or else I really would’ve died. I’m kinda stupid aren’t i? I’m pretty sure my belly-button-grazing hair is an obvious enough sign that I’m not a boy. okay nvm it’s late and I’m blabbing.
Wow okay sooooooooooo this majorly-overdue post is going to be another extremely long and random update: full of random crap mostly hahaha. Anyhow, I haven’t blogged in ages and it’s honestly cos I’ve been really busy and I’ve been tired NON-STOP for almost 3 weeks now. Work was a little nuts and I had to work all weekend too so luckily it’s the end of the week soon and things are starting to slow down. I don’t plan on waking up anytime before 12pm this Saturday. I haven’t slept in for more than 2 weeks now and it’s seriously starting to show everywhere on my body, especially in the regions of my panda-eye-suitcases.
I’ve recently (meaning like within the last 2 months, since I haven’t updated in ages) picked up a bunch of new things that I haven’t been able to post about yet. Also just today I had an unplanned visit to H&M. I hadn’t been inside an H&M in ages and the mega huge “FINAL SALE” banners on the window were just calling me in. I ended up walking out with 2 things that I haven’t been able to photograph yet but I guess you’ll see them soon enough!
This is a bunch of underwear stuff I was trying on at H&M before the New Year. I ended up getting the Sonia Rykiel for H&M garter thingies which I wore on New Years Eve. I just realised I don’t have a proper outfit shot of what I wore but lemme list it out and you can just sit there and imagine it: H&M polka dot tights, OTK socks, Sonia Rykiel for H&M garters, AA tshirt dress, Zara leather jacket, Ash wedges and a vintage Chanel purse. Looks great in your imagination doesnt it? Yeah it was actually really boring in real life -.-
Got this very cheap but cute little jersey crewneck from CottonOn. It has these cute pleat details on the shoulders and it’s ever so slightly cropped.
I have been looking EVERYWHERE for a leather jacket like this for aaaaaaaaaaaages! I finally found it on Granville Road. You guys will NEVER guess how much I paid for it. $150hkd/$19usd. SO CHEAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean of course the leather is fake and the white fluffy parts are faker than a stuffed animal but regardless it’s still soooooooooo soft and doesn’t look cheap when you wear it. I guess this cheap alternative will have to do until the day I can afford to purchase my dream Acne leather jacket.
DIY stud and cross necklace, PedderRed skull necklace.
PB concentrating ever so hard on hogging my iPhone.
hehehehehe crossing his legs
and then he snubbed me.
hehehe obi and his mama.
LOL obi thinks he’s a prince. He thinks it’s okay for him to sit on ANY surface, wherever he wants to plop his butt down he will.
A couple of weeks back I was lucky enough to be gifted the amazing Plattan headphones by UrbanEars from Street Value in Hong Kong. I am seriously in love with these headphones. Prior to these, I’d been using the WeSC Bongo headphones in hot pink and before those was the first edition Bongo’s in yellow. Some great features of the Plattan are the fabric covered cord, the extra headphone jack so your buddy can plug in to your headphones and listen to what you’re listening to! It’s also really handy that it has a built-in microphone and remote (second picture) compatible with iPhone, Blackberry, HTC and Nokia so you don’t have to take your headphones off when you get a phone call! What I love most about them is that they’re so minimalistic and well-designed. The website is amazing too and I seirously died when I received them, the packaging is amazing. TheDIeLine did an awesome feature on their packaging here.
P.S. On a totally different note: How disgusting does my hair look? I mean, I totally understand that the whole gradient/ombre dyed hair look is “in” now but I dunno, Asians with dyed hair are always having this gross roots-growing-out problem. My mom hates it and really wants me to do something to my hair but I just don’t know what!??! I don’t think i can do the short hair thing..i’ve thought about it ALOT lately but with my bodysize and glasses, I don’t think I can pull it off although my face is really sharp. Another problem is that I don’t think I should be dying my hair anymore..it’s completely damaged already so I don’t wanna further drag it into hairy-hell. My mom wants me to cut it..or at least trim it, which of course I do still but after having such supah long hair for so long now, I don’t think I can. *NOTE: wrote this paragraph ages ago and have since changed my hair. You’ll see in my next update ;)*
So after waiting to see it for almost a year, I finally got to see New York, I love you. I was sooo excited to see this and everytime the preview came on tv, my heart missed a beat and I get a little choked up. You can kinda say I guess I miss New York a lot. So after being out for about a week in HK, me and PB had date night and FINALLY went to see it. I was soooo expecting myself to cry..or at least get a little teary…but not a drop was shed. It’s safe to say that the movie did NOTHING for New York. I mean it barely showcased New York-y things..except for like getting into cabs….or like…smoking on street corners, which is basically stuff you could do everywhere. Pretty much anything in that movie could’ve taken place in a different city. My favourite segment was the one with Anton Yelchin (hellooooooo nurse!) and maybe the bit directed by Natalie Portman, with the father and daughter. Oh actually the Robin Wright Penn one was pretty good too..but other than that..nothing special, a serious let down ):
A couple weeks back I got an email from the lovely Dawn about her new book “101 Glam Girl Ways to an Ultra Chic Lifestyle”. The book is easy to read with a helpful tip on each page accompanied by a pretty illustration. I’ve picked out just a couple of my favourite pages to share with you guys:
There’s tons more to the book and it’s a really helpful guide for fashionistas (lol hate that word but hey! why not right?) and is currently available at a couple of bookstores in America as well as online at Amazon ($15us).
Recently I was featured on the amazing Tongue in Chic site. They have some really great updates so make sure you click click!
I’ve decided to set up a pop-up shop! Currently, it’s stocked with just 4 items but as you’ll read on the page, I’m not planning on opening one of those infamous blog-shops, just trying to get rid of stuff that I no longer want/need/fit ): I don’t plan on updating it often as I don’t really have anything else worthy of selling/that I want to sell. Anyway, please check it out regardless and perhaps you can do me a tiddly leedle favour and tell your friends too! You’ll also notice that I’ve put up a little mini-banner on my sidebar there <<<<<<<<< so feel free to click anytime :D
And lastly, I forgot to say Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just wanted to say it’s been sooooooo great getting to know a bunch of bloggers and I’m sooooooo very grateful for everyone who takes the time out to read my blog, especially since I know it can get extremely long and have the shit I post is really dumb. But yes thanks so much for sticking around and I hope you guys have a greaaaaaaaaaat new year :D Now I’m looking forward to Chinese New Year!!!!
Oh and p.s. I just set up my blog to appear iPhone friendly! So if you own an iPhone, it’s now super easy to read SUPERWOWOMG!
p.p.s. I promise promise promise to try and regulate my updates and not bombard too much in one post next time!! And i really need to find a better way of dividing up “sections” in each of my posts………..hm……………………..
