Let’s be honest: Melbourne Cup is right around the corner, and you have probably sorted out your cute little dress and fascinator with your bff months ago. But for those who are a bit lazier (aka me), last minute shopping for the perfect dress can be as stressful as going on a blind date. Plus, how often/likely you are going to wear that dress again? So why not try something different, and go for items you will wear beyond the day without feeling embarrassed.
As much as I enjoy dressing up, there are days I just want to leave the house in pyjamas. Mix-and-matching for a refreshing new look VS five more minutes of sleep? I always choose the later. On a lazy day like this, I will save my brain cells and just go to my collection of jumpsuits.
After wearing black for almost three weeks, it is time to wear something more colourful to cheer myself up. I seldom wore prints a couple years ago, but it has come to my realisation that mixing prints is a great way to create new looks with old items.
On the last day of this challenge, I was inspired to create a look with this cape like blouse. I always have a soft spot for capes and ponchos since I was a little girl. They remind me of those ancient martial arts masters and superheroes (Another proof of how boyish I am…), and of course, Harry Potter! And those who are fighting so hard in Hong Kong for what we believe are superheroes to me.
On day 4 of this challenge, I decided to wear the symbolic colour of the movement – yellow.
Nothing says Sundays like a pair of comfy jeans, and that is why I chose to incorporate it into today’s “Girl In Black” challenge.
Saturday should be a time for fun and play. But instead of dressing up to go out, so many of my friends in Hong Kong go onto the streets and fight for what we believe. Therefore, I created this night time look in black and rose gold in the hope of one day we can party together in our home town with true democracy.
I always believe fashion is a form of self-expression. And given what is happening in my home town, Hong Kong right now, all I want to wear these days is black. It feels frivolous to blog about fashion in times like this, but I have decided to do a “Girl In Black” challenge on the next couple days to show solidarity with my city.
