Taken when I was in Hong Kong sometime in March this year. I know the title isn’t terribly imaginative, but at least I am still keeping with the tradition of naming all the outfit posts after songs on my iTunes!

Black Outfit breakdown:

  • Dress: Mongkok, Hong Kong
  • Jacket: Zara, London
  • Harness: Mongkok, Hong Kong
  • Shoes: Primark

I figured it would be a good time now to blog a little more in-depth about the places we travel to. After all, June is the peak holiday season and so many people are heaving off for a holiday! Unfortunately I will be grounded in Singapore for quite a while.

Generally speaking, shopping in Hong Kong isn’t as cheap as China or Taiwan, and it can get really confusing and disorientating after a while because of the way the malls are laid out. However, Hong Kong is an amazing place to purchase authentic designer duds. Summer sales in Hong Kong really do take a pretty chunk off brands like Louis Vuitton and Givenchy. Furthermore, Hong Kong houses many brands not available in the region. There is a couple of Vivienne Westwood boutiques there, and guerrilla stores houses brands such as Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester, Maison Martin Margiela and Acne amongst a few.

That said, should any of you have questions about places we have travelled to, please feel free to email us or head over to our formspring. While we are not a travel blog, we are still able to dish out a tip or two with regards to shopping. We are always eager to share where we get our loots from!

    While I’ve been to Mongkok, I’ve never been able to find something as awesome as your dress or harness. Looks like I need to be more aggressive in seeking out awesome clothes…

    I HAVE seen VW stores though, so at least I’m not completely behind the times!

    Hope Arissa is doing well and I’m sorry for her loss…

    Thanks for the concern!! Arissa is rather preoccupied with other important matters now so I may have a more prominent presence in this blog for time being. Thank you for asking after her :)

    Yes, definitely spend more time rooting around the stores! Most of them are so packed (and they love to put their clothes in clear garment bags…) that items are really easy to miss. Shops in Mong Kok opens till 2 in the morning anyway, so there’s no rush to shop! <3

    Thanks! <3

    I think the stuff have definitely gone up in prices! ): I would say the prices are comparable to Singapore’s, though Hong Kong definitely houses a much wider variety of styles. 😀 And yes, you can hardly find anyone that doesn’t speak mandarin anymore, with the exception of the older generation. I was surprised that many of them even spoke english!

  3. Beautiful dress and the jacket is a great addition. The varied striped pattern on the dress makes it such an interesting garment.

    Thank you! The varied stripe intrigued me as well, so I decided to buy it. I am glad you like the coordinate!

    lol, I’m actually conscious enough not to roll out to get beer in pajamas. There’s a freaking 24hr supermarket opposite my block!

    come to HK! I sure can use some shopping pointers! *brush up my bargaining skills*

  5. […] the popular shopping district of Orchard Road in Singapore. There is no more need to travel to Hong Kong to shop at H&M anymore! Information available […]
