A wardrobe facelift - Glitter shoes
I hate throwing things away. So I delay the separation between me and my things as long as I can. Signs of a young hoarder? Possible… I had a pair of Dorothy Perkins heels from London - 6 years old, worn something like 4 times. Instead of chucking them out, I found some inspiration on A Pair And A Spare and I DIYed. Oh yeah… The old pair… Scratched and pretty gross despite...
Shoes are amazing - Valentino
For a last bit of summer - at the races, Shatin.
Shoes are amazing - booties
A Pair and a Spare
I have always been a fan of DIY blogs - I read it, think ‘yeah that’s easy’ and buy everything I need. That’s about as far as my DIY-ing goes. This is Geneva and she writes A Pair and a Spare - a blog about her DIY adventure in fashion. From glitter boots to cut-out dresses, this girl has made me even more motivated to DIY. Let’s see how far I get this time...

Style, or not style...
… You be the judge.
Burgundy with denim
Ivy wears denim on denim, with touches of matching burgundy. The suede is sort of ochre, which makes me like these colours even more.
It’s colourful. It’s fun. It’s alternative. It’s Ramdane. I am talking about the man and the brand. This is Ramdane, and he has his own menswear brand (and womenswear, actually). The level of detail in all of his designs satisfy my chronic obsession of brass tacks - from stitch details to sundries, he’s thought of it all, and done everything differently. ...
Fall Colour - Ochre
This is my colour of the season: OCHRE. I can’t get enough of it. And an ochre that pops is even better… Xuan wears all Levi’s, mixing ochre, burgundy and indigo. Not to be mistaken for gold. On clothes.
Men in Cardigans
… or should I say Man in Cardigan… A very colourful one. This is the man who makes Kapok happen. Check it out on Star Street.
Stores of Hong Kong - Ranee K
Local designer Ranee K has re-opened in Central (Aberdeen street, just under Hollywood Road) and has lots to offer. From gorgeous Cheung Sam-inspired (traditional Chinese dresses) gowns to the casual, floral print dress, this store is definitely out to satisfy the little girl in us all. The main attraction in Ranee’s store (to me) are by far the gowns. One stuck out to me - it was a...
