ILLUMINATOR





Top- Forever 21// Skirt- Brandy Melville

Much stripes, very reveal.
Taken by the one and only BCHK <3
This top is not exactly my favourite top because it is so, so short and is not that comfortable... Stoopid me and my impulse buys. It's not as short as my topshop crop top though.
It was very cold today so this outfit probably would not have been warm. But if you live somewhere.. warmer, but getting cold, then this should be good. I don't like crop tops that are too short because when you raise your arms your boobies probably show.
This skirt is a nice skirt. Super comfy unlike my top. I've probably said this before, but Brandy Melville is severely overpriced and the first and last time I went there I tried to buy things that were sort of worth buying. This was sort of worth buying because the material is soft and stretchy. Not shopping there again though, unless it's something I REALLY want. Sorry.
I didn't actually realise that both my top and skirt were stripes. Horizontal stripes make you look skinnier! That's what my mom tells me. I don't know if it's true or not. You tell me from these photos?


I'm currently wearing my giraffe onesie because I am extremely vulnerable to cold and I am very cold at the moment.

WHY ARE YOU SO GREEN?






Top- Gap// Shorts- Primark// Shoes- H&M//Socks- IT

Taken by the one and only BCHK.
If you're thinking, WHY ARE YOU SO GREEN?, you've come to the right post.
Sometimes I like to pick a random colour and wear everything in that colour scheme. No particular reason, just because I feel like it. But if it's because it's time, then i'll wear.... another colour. Cold weather is HERE. (that's not a hyperlink) It is time to bust out the sweaters and jackets. I got my green stripey shirt from Gap last year and it's comfy and warm but thin! So iz very good. Next are my socks which I showed in my favourites post before. They are dinosaurs and are so cute, especially the yellow spine. (is it called spine?)
There were lots of funny photos but Brian didn't post them (shame shame).
I'm special, you're special, we're all special.

LEATHER BE LIGHT








Top- Topshop// Skirt- Zara// Jacket- Forever 21

Taken by the one and only BCHK. This series of photos is my favourite as well as Brian's!
(while shooting the epiphany was it was Rumi Neely-esque. "DON'T TOUCH YOUR HAIR.")
I bought this jacket start of summer. Wanna hear the story? Here's the story: I bought it in HK when summer holidays started and it was too warm to wear so I brought it on holiday. And then left it in the hotel in Cuenca... When I got to London, my mama and I went to the F21 there and got a new one because I really liked it. #dedicated Bottom line, I've been wearing it a lot because it's purdy and it's not stiff which means it is comfy, to a certain extent.
Here's another story to my top: Went to Topshop and thought this was a nice crop top. Bought it. Didn't realise it literally ONLY covered my boobs. I don't wear this often but when I do I wear it with something super high-waisted or else I feel to exposed.
My skirt is new! It's the faux leather sort of material which I love and if you look closely in the photos you can see that it's sort of shredded. I didn't think much of it at first and didn't think of getting it but my mom was like !!!!!!!GET!!!!!!!! so I got it. I likey though.
It's getting colder now so this probably isn't the most appropriate outfit but if you're not afraid of the cold, bare away!
Hong Kong is home.

Tree of Life

We are two trees among a forest,
Conscious of all surroundings.
Our branches stretch out,
To the sky, the trees, and to the world unknown.
The wind blows but we are steady.
Our leaves fall but we do not move.
Our trunks heavy with youth and life.
But the insides,
Still unknown.
We search for life,
For something worth living,
But we are blinded by the forest.
Yet we continue to search for light,
And eventually,
We are the last ones standing.

GREY MATTER, GREY MATTERS






Dress- Cotton On// Necklace- Shop in Nepal

Taken by the one and only BCHK :)
Even though it's considered 'autumn' now, the weather in Hong Kong is still pretty damn hot. I got back from Nepal two weeks ago, hence the henna and necklace. (photo diary of Nepal will be up soon so keep an eye out for that!) I kind of quite love long dresses, even though this only goes up to my knee. So simple and comfy, and if worn right, can be supa classy. Because this dress is kind of tight, a special type of undies is required. I hope from this and all my other posts you have come to realise that I am very open and if you don't feel comfortable then.... soz. I've got big hips, as you can tell from the photos, and it's something I always hide because I just don't like it. Until the day these photos were taken when Brian (of BCHK photography, who took these photos) said to me after taking these photos, "Curves are really good/important." and from that I've become less conscious of my big hips. (shoutout to Brian for taking time out to help me take photos and for a good time shooting :) ) People always say that they can't wear long dresses because they're not tall enough. Gurrrllll long dresses are for everyone. Wear whatever you want! That's all for now. Hong Kong colder pls.
