Grey striped sweater and shirt combination, A boutique in Luk Yeung Galleria - Tsuen Wan; Black leggings, New Look; White leather 'Dainty' mid-top Converse, John Lewis; ChloƩ Baylee medium tote.
If there's one thing I've nailed in Hong Kong, it's the shopping. Got that down to a tee. In fact, I would say I mastered that particular art at around the age of 14 when Mum would send me off out with my brother with HK$250 and an Octopus card in hand. The Chai Life, it's a good one.

Meet the new baby in my handbag collection: my ChloƩ Baylee medium tote.

I first blogged about this in September 2013, would you believe?! And it was love at first sight, repeated each season, culminating in this soft peachy coral version from SS14. And on Friday there was a staff sample sale and it would've been rude not to, right?

Paired it with this grey sweater-and-shirt that I picked up for a mere £15, my leather Converse and leggings for a day traipsing around Hong Kong Island with Sharon. We then wandered back over to TST on Sunday, where we bought lots of Hello Kitty sweet treats, ate lots, gossiped lots and took windswept tourist selcas at the Avenue of Stars. Why do I always forget that Converse just ain't made for city-walking?! I'm feeling quite settled in HK already but I'm finding it really odd that, like, 2 weeks ago I was in England and now I'm not. And don't get me started on the time difference thing - yes, I have been sacrificing sleep in order to Skype my sister and tell her about all the desserts I plan to eat.

PS. Follow me on Instagram to see too many photos from Hong Kong ^_~

  1. I feel like I left too much of HK unshopped when I visited this year... next time then! Your new baby is pretty, glad you finally got your hands on it!

  3. That bag is beautiful! It looks really lovely next to the sweater/shirt, the shades go well together and it brightens it up too. I had no idea that leather Converse existed, and now I need a pair! My two older sisters work abroad/travel a lot so I'm used to negotiating who has to stay up late/have an early Skype session!

  5. Hong Kong is a shopper's dream! Time to be a little more restrained about it all though now that I actually live here. Ah thanks Jane - so pleased I nabbed it in the end.

  8. This entire outfit is love - from that gorgeous bag to your leather Converse! Can't wait to see what shopping purchases you succumb to in HK :) Such a cool sculpture you're standing in front of too, is it by Anish Kapoor like the one in Chicago? x
