Living in an urban city really doesn’t afford much inspiring shots. Or maybe we just need to try harder.

I love this dress I bought in Hong Kong early this year. Unfortunately it’s a little loose on the top for me. I never try on clothes in stores (I have an odd aversion to doing so, unless I am really unsure) so ill fitting clothes happen too often to me. I really miss shopping in Hong Kong! Shopping there is really about the small independent shops that caters to very specific styles. One thing I hate about shopping in Singapore is that while you do get a lot of small shops here as well, their styles are all over the place. I just don’t see a direction in most of the shops here.

The stockings are from Forever 21! I fulfil all my stockings needs there. They are of decent quality, stock a wide variety and is most importantly, cheap. I haven’t been wearing stockings for a while now because of how swampy the weather has been.

Outfit Breakdown:

  • Jacket: H&M
  • Dress: DressHead
  • Tights: Forever 21
  • Shoes: Siren

    Hi Cate!

    I’ve heard about the Birmingham store! I heard they are planning a couple of stores in London too. If they do I’m going to shop myself broke the next time I’m in London! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Love the dress!

    My friend loves the tights and leggings from F21, but for some reason, i can never seem to find them =_=; guess I’ll have to look harder, haha

    Btw, any particular spot in HK you recommend for shopping? I’ve stopped by Mong Kok, but everything feels so shady…maybe I’m going to the wrong places?

    Hi Tabia!

    Do you live in Singapore? The pickings here are really slim… the bulk of my F21 loots are from online!

    And you should be in the right place. MongKok IS kind of run down and shady… but step into one of the old buildings and it is CRAMMED with stores. The shopping malls there do not have signs, they look like your regular apartment buildings! But follow the signs and step into one and you will see what I mean!

    those tights are beautiful!

    i’ve worn those siren shoes for the first time the other day and they killed my feet, and since they’re half a size too big and i was wearing nylon socks, they kept slipping off. -_- can’t wait till i can wear them properly. you make them look so good!

    Hi Christine! Glad to see you here ๐Ÿ˜€

    I actually find these shoes really comfortable! But I have only worn socks with them so I can’t say how they are like with nylon socks. And I am sure you rock them better than I do! <33

    Ohhh love the stockings! Why is it that I never find these awesome cool things that you seem to at H&M and Forever 21? So what happens to all the clothes that you buy that are ill fitting? Do you return them?

    Dawn replied on

    Thanks Jen!

    I think you just really have to surf their online store regularly and spot the nice items!

    As for ill fitting clothes, I usually alter them a little (I own a sewing machine) or find ways to make them look better. I haven’t bought anything that I can’t wear..yet!

    Love your hair & tights, I know how Singaporeans LOVE to stare at anything remotely fashionable, but you work that style girl ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have a bunch of bold tights, furry coats and leather boots that I can’t wear back in Singapore.. it’s such a shame! :(

    Dawn replied on

    Thanks Kerry. The stares have been getting better these few years… It was so much worse before! And yeah, I have soo many clothes I don’t wear out in Singapore either ):

    Hi! I LOVE the tights in this post! And I just have to say that your blog is absolutely gorgeous!
    I’m originally from Singapore too but I live in Australia – it’s been a while since I’ve been back but I’m dying to scope out the fashion there haha. Australia is okay but it’s just so behind everyone else.
    Oh, and any tips on where to shop in Hong Kong? I’m heading there for Christmas and shopping is a number one priority haha
    Thankyou!!
