Picasso

Wearing...a shirt that's thrifted from hk // a bag by rebecca minkoff // vintage loafers (tods) // a vintage louis vuitton belt from mum // a velvet skirt made by me // a watch from guess.

A few days ago, I went to the Picasso exhibition in hong kong. Me and my sister went really early (10am) to attempt to avoid large crowds...however, turned out we weren't the only ones who were thinking of doing that! There were tons of people, including a few teachers from my school (eeeeeeek), families,  a few (noisy/irritating!) primary schools to add to the list. Then again...it was PICASSO, and...his works don't often come to hong kong...Can't blame them nicole! <---yeah, talking to myself thurr.

My outfit...was pretty pleaty/ruffley-chill that day. Originally, i was going to wear heels, but let's just say I'm glad I didn't since after the exhibition, me and nat went to argyle street and sha tin to S.H.O.P! I found a few nice pieces. Most happily, nat showed me a really cool hong kong shop called Chapel and they sell the most raaaaaad jewelry there for decent prices. Go check em out if you want to shop for cool jewelry in sweet packaging. Not literally, but you know what I mean :)

Have an amazing summer!

Summer In a Garden

Dress - Made by me // Shoes - Vincci // Bag - Kotur // Watch - Guess

Hi!! Just wanted to put this post up before dozing off. This dress is one of the first ever dresses I have successfully made and designed, I even incorporated a beautiful technique called english smocking which makes this piece unique. Ahh...what a summery feeling these photos have,  this is perhaps my favourite location of shooting by far! Being surrounded by nature is really great and beautiful, however, it has its negative sides including getting constantly bitten by mosquitoes.

Summer will begin in a few days. Whoop!?

Shoppers stop for lunch: The Villandry

Villandry @ Bicestor Village uk

Righhht! Back to my food posts :P
During my london trip back in easter, I stopped by bicestor village and shopped at mainly, Cath Kidston and Emma Bridgewater outlets! Looking back, I still remember how rainy and miserable the weather was in the morning! By the time lunch hit, the weather clapped into a perfectly sunny/windy type of climate. It was great, really.

For late lunch, I just had a steak sandwich with an extra portion of fries + mayo. I didn't know they charged extra for the fries when the waiter asked if I wanted any! sneakyyyy. Anyway despite that, I thought the chips were yummy with the mayo. Because of this, I now want to eat my chips with mayo/tartar sauce. It's an amaaaazing combination!! My mum had the prawn spaghetti, and looked really nice as well and she did say it was pretty good.

Have a good week!
