Yes, this does sound slightly inappropriate in the current mild climate that constitutes a HK Winter. However, just over a week ago, I met up with the ever amazing M in Causeway Bay for a catch up and it was (just about) cold enough to justify bringing out the faux fur. I bought it on Etsy and had been waiting for a chance to wear it. Admittedly, it was carried more than worn but I did manage to persuade M to take some pictures of me wearing it. The outfit I wore that day consisted of a mixture of a few of my favourite brands:
- Black Coated Jeans by M&S (I tried them on when I did my “M&Sandthensome goes undercover” post). They are surprisingly forgiving due to the incredible stretch and looks a bit like leather (I don’t think I can carry off leather trousers no matter how much I would love to) so these are a great (and cheaper) alternative.
- Black on Black “Vera” Top by Aalis. Aalis is one of my favourite HK brands at the moment. Run by a husband and wife duo, they have a boutique in Causeway Bay. I love the sweatshirt style and the black on black lace material adds texture to an otherwise simple looking top.
- Navy Blue “Lorraine” Jacket by Aalis. I have been getting a lot of wear out of this. I love the slouchy feel of this jacket and it is super comfortable. The subtle sparkle makes it more formal than the cut would normally suggest. I am gutted though that I was not able to get the beige version of this jacket before it was sold out.
- Navy Snakeskin Heels by Marks & Spencer. I have worn these over and over. I am generally extremely tough on my shoes but these seem to last the distance. The navy and black snakeskin means that they are as versatile as a pair of black heels. Unfortunately, I need to get these re-heeled which is a common situation for me in HK.
- Pop Art Effect Mao Bag by Shanghai Tang. This is one of my amazing Salvation Army finds. I love the bright colour and the Mao print is a little bit cheeky. I also like the shape of it as I can fold it over so it looks like an over-sized clutch. It is amazing what you can find in a charity store!
So here are some pictures…
Thanks M as always….
