Blocking and matching…
Remember the dress I told you I made… Well, here it is! (with a bit of leg action) I thought I would take advantage of the typhoon and pester my boyfriend to take photos of me on the deserted streets of Hong Kong (because that’s what girlfriends do… isn’t it?). The proud mother of a dress - and a clear demonstration of how wind can be unflattering to the body shape....
A flower in Kwun Tong
Here I am, already reminiscing about summer, when 2 weeks ago, I couldn’t wait for fall to come… How confusing. Then a found a flower on the floor in Kwun Tong and got even more confused because there are no trees in Kwun Tong… MMMmmmm

Hello monsoon… Hopefully I’ll be getting some good rainy shots.
City of Dreams
Dreamer no. 1: Tomy He wears a hooded check shirt and frames. Just frames. Dreamer no. 2: Lai Ying In her gorgeous Top Shop jumpsuit and Chloe bag Dreamer no. 3: Marco In a simple and casual pullover shirt and navy shorts. A quick snapshot of this City of Dreams: the forever afternoon food court, where it’s always 5pm… I wouldn’t like to live on the first floor,...
Give me an Egg Tart
… and I’ll give you my heart
I have not patience. Anticipating the next season…
Boy oh boy, it’s getting chilly out there! The temperature is going down - and so is the hair, baby! I am a personal hater of having wet-hair-stuck-on-skin-because-it’s-so-damn-hot. And that season is over. But that’s not what this post is about. I am a great believer in short hair during the winter season, so I’m looking for a new hairdo (even if I have just had my...
Proof that cut off cargo shorts can be styled nicely. On men.
Leopard and Military
The Power of Chambray
It’s getting (nice and) cold here, and we’re loving it. We’re loving it so much we all rocked up to work in our heaviest chambray / denim combos. All looks: head to toe Levi’s. Coincidentally, our CEO was in town… My most decent favorite shot of day. Yellow Converse are so in this Fall , need to steal them off Sozo.
All tucked in
I made a dress...
… and it looks freaking good!!!! It’s long, it’s simple (it’s my first dress) and it’s green. Photos to come… I have been taking housewife sewing classes every week - and I love them! It’s amazing. I have also been helping them out with their website, so as soon as that’s up and running… You might even be able to place an order for this...

Military Greens - Part 2
I love it when someone is wearing nice shoes on the underground… It happens so rarely, it’s almost like it’s prohibited…
All in the detail
… or not. This is how excluded we feel from NYFW.
Sozo has some incredible vintage accessories - like this air force helmet bag Full length pockets with velcro and snap fasteners. Totally pick-pocket proof. Love it. Added shot: just in case you didn’t believe me…

The big things… … and the little things… Black pearls with diamond details… Stark square frame watch… Black conventional heels with trompe-oeuille square blocks… Wood, metal and stone… … and Royal Flush sporting next season’s headwear… Give me a handbag with the same silver details and I’m on it like white on...
Raceday - Part 2
After a full night’s sleep, I am still exhausted. Glambling (Glamourous Gambling) my full 120 dollars has really taken it out of me. I should really stick to fashion. Speaking of which, here are a few shots of fellow glamblers (Ha! I am loving this new word!). Lai Ying in a black shift dress and McQueen shades. Tomy in his tuxedo trousers and Paul Smith cufflinks (below) Liza...
Raceday - part 1
Today was the start of a new season. No, not the autumn season (there is no autumn, remember?). Not HK fashion week either. Oh no - Today was the start of a new RACE season. To compensate for the lack of autumn-ess in our seasonal year, we all dressed up in fall winter clothes and headed over to Shatin to have some lunch, drink some bubbly, lose some money and sweat a little… ...
We love sunbrellas in Hong Kong. We seriously love them. A sunbrella girl with neon details. I am looking for a real lace one. Anyone?
A tulip skirt
Scott’s doing it. Garance is doing it. Hell even Leandra’s doing it. So I’m going to do it. I’m going Fall shopping. For those of you who didn’t know, I live in Hong Kong. We don’t really have an autumn here. Yes, leaves go yellow and fall off trees - but it’s still boiling hot, so we’re all at the beach while that’s happening. I have...

Oh yes - this is the first ever blog / company acquisition: my long awaited for typewriter. Are you writing a novel, a poem? No. Do you collect antiques? Niet. Are you writing a book about your life? OMG No. Enough of my one-on-one personal interview - I found this typewriter in a boutique / frozen yogurt place on Hollywood road called EDIT. They have a whole bunch of vintage items...
The simple touch: to button up a slim fitted shirt and style with an equally slim fitted pair of jeans. Love it.
