LOL I put this pic up cos doesn’t it look like I only have a mono-leg??????

Hiya! I’m back! Feels like ages since I’ve blogged!!! Honestly though, the outfits lately have been so mehhhh and ughhh. The weather in HK has been major shitballs. First half of the week was CONSTANT rain, and when it rains in Hong Kong, it RAINSSSSSSSSSS. Then all of a sudden the next day, the rain suddenly disappears and out comes the sun and all its 10000000000000000 degrees. It’s so flaming hot that you can actually SMELL it. You know that burnt sorta smell you get when you iron clothes? Well, it’s THAT hot smell but IN THE AIRRRRRRRRRR EVERYWHEREEEEEEEEEEEEEE. I guess I shouldn’t be complaining…I mean, I grew up here so I should be used to the heat by now…but whatevz, iz real hot.

Anyway, the above outfit was taken for a small diddly little local magazine thingie which I’ll just talk about when and if it actually comes out (hopefully soon!). But I did wanna show you guys my awesome new blazer in all its soft, drapey, black and white, Givenchy-inspired and geometric glory! I dieddd when I saw it and it was an INSTANT PURCHASE. I went back to H&M within the same week that I got it and already noticed it was sold out. GOOD THING I bought it right away, ZERO HESITATION ALWAYS WINS!!!!!!!!!

oh and p.s. I think my mom’s Vintage Chanel purse could totally pass as a pad-bag, if yknow what i mean.


Oh and a few weeks ago, my mom told me SUPER LAST MINUTE about this Chanel x Joyce event that we were gonna go to. Like super last minute, as in ON the day, as in I ALREADY LEFT MY HOUSE, as in WASNT DRESSED APPROPRIATELY. Yeah so I ended up just wearing whatevz..good thing I had my trusty Pierre Hardy for Gap wooden sandals at the office that day!

Anyway the event was the launch of Chanel’s Paris-Shanghai pre-fall collection which is being sold exclusively at JOYCE or at Chanel stores in Hong Kong.


DYING over the details taken from, what I think is, those little metal bits on Chinese furniture.


Want these tights/slutty things. Nanz wants the gloves. LULZ.


Awesome display of the McQueen scarves at JOYCE.


Mom posing with my champagne lol


“Myyyyyyyyyyyy name’s Sue and IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII am awesome.”


Some random shots from the past few weeks.


CLN with her, and ONLY HER, lor mai gai (sticky rice).


CLN with MY dan tats!


soooooooooo I’m hating my hair now. Any suggestions on what I can do? I’m thinking of curling it…but not sure what kinda damage that would do on my fried/dead/monkey/coconut-husk of hair.


Oh my new goodies from Accessorize! I won this little competition thingie and they gave us a $1000 coupon to spend at the store! I managed to get a bunch of stuff for myself and a few things for nanz and my mom <3 I've been told that I don't wear enough colour, so instead of diving right into rainbow clothes, I thought I’d start off slow by introducing some brighter colours to my accessories first.


This is pretty much my uniform now. Black tee, black shorts, black bag, white plimsols and a huge chunk of necklaces. See my new colourful Accessorize feather necklace thingie there! I love it now and it goes so well with all the other silver/gold/black crap I wear around my neck.


The other day I met up with Wendy/Nitrolicious who’s visiting Hong Kong right now. I didn’t actually get a pic with her on my camera so maybe I’ll steal a pic if she posts it on her blog :D

Anyway, she helped me pick up these Cynthia VIncent for Target wedge sandals for Amurika! Believe it or not, these are my first pair of NON-BLACK heels. I think. I just thought they’d be a good little basic summer sandal to have and they’re comfy too!

I ended up taking Wendy to the outlets out in Ap Lei Chau where I also picked up a birthday present for myself :D


Yahh!!!!! The Balenciaga Cork sandals!!! You’ll notice they’re a bit different than the ones that everyone and their mother got from DSW since mine has no platform underneath but I’m actually glad. They’re lower than the other one, meaning they’re much more manageable for clunky chunky me. Was also so happy that I finally got these and for a good deal too!


and finally, Flickr Panda says BYE NOW!



          

oh. p.s. My blog is translatable now! I’ve added a little widget on the sidebar there where you can translate my blog into a bunch of different languages :D Okay bye now!

  1. ooh you lucky! you got the balenciaga heels. i thought everyone’s had a platform underneath? lol. that’s the way it looked to me..hmm. whatever. are they comfy? they look great :D i love that H&M outfit too. H&M does have some nice stuff once in a while. better than forever 21, i think :P i miss good chinese food. am going to SF next week so maybe i will be able to score from awesome dim sum there. can’t wait. SoCal is devoid of delish chinese, just great mexican, vietnamese and sometimes korean/jap.mmm.

  2. Funny mama. <3 the Balenciagaaaaaahgahhh. jealouzzzz

  3. hooolyyyy soo many things to comment about!! :DD

    First of all, that H&M geometric blazer is AWESOMEEEE. It looks really really nice on you!! :D Man whenever I go to H&M when I’m on holiday I never ever really see anything that nice but when you and sha go regularly you guys always seem to get the best stuff! hoping that magazine feature materializes and you can share that with us soon!!

    $1000 coupon from Accessorize?!?! JEALOUSSS. They’ve got such lovely stuff esp scarves and hats but those are all soooo expensive normally. What sort of contest was it?!

    and lastly, mmm nice heels. they do look really killer high though.

    nice h&m jacket!! definitely getting the givenchy vibes!

    andddd my nail polish is actually silver with really small, small glitters. it doesn’t have like individual glitter specks so it looks more chromey than glittery, BUT, i DO happen to know a few chrome polishes because all i do is look at nail polish blogs and what not in my free time…

  10. One of my favorite posts from you! My jaw dropped when I saw the first outfit; that blazer is gorgeous and probably the only thing I like from mainstream stores that’s Givenchy inspired. Also, first time I actually like those JC creeper boots! Love the laid back uniform too; you worked those bright colors in so well :) ANNNNND LAST THING, I’m so jel over those Balenciagas!!!!!

    btw, since you sold the D&Gs, are you going to get the JC’s?!

  11. You look amazing girl! Honestly love that jacket!

  13. Hey! I found your blog a week ago.. and went through all your outfits posts back to NYC! I’m also kinda like you- went to Parsons for four years and now I’m back in sweltering Hong Kong.
    I love your outfit particularly that blazer (never saw that in H&M)… except if I wore heels, I’d probably sweat even more. T-T
    If you have time, please swing by my blog! ^^ Mb I’ll see you around in the city!

  14. lol pad bag! never thought of that but it would be perfect! : ]
    gaah my hair is annoying me too. all i wear is a bun now!

  15. OHMYGOSH. i want the balenciagas even if they’re the shorties!! can i ask how much you ended up getting them for and can you get me a pair?!?! ha!

    oh. speaking as a hairstylist. don’t curl your hair especially after you just mentioned that your hair is fried/dead/monkey/coconut-husk of hair” the perm will make it worse!!

  16. the first outfit is gorjux!
    the weather in Singapore is exactly like that now, it’s crazy.
