Hi! It’s Street Snap Monday again!  This time I tried to combine the vintage feelings (leather shoes and leather bag) with laid-back outfit, let’s see how it works :p (@Fashionmimo)

OOTD: Let’s cross the sea

Long time no see, and belated congratulations to my 1-year-old blog FASHIONMIMO!!!

I started my half-year internship one month ago, right after I came back in HK. As a newbie in PR industry, everyday is a challenge, plus my bloody insomnia came back to visit me again… Recently I really have that feeling that maybe I will be able to write something like Eat Pray Love after this period. Yeah you could expect my next post will be all about meditation, yoga and stress relief…

OOTD: Weekend Getaway

Spring is here, summer is around the corner, you could smell the warmth rising up through the air and it’s time for weekend getaways!

There are plenty of choices for weekend getaways from Singapore, as far as I have tried: picnics, galleries, jazz bars, national parks and sentosa etc. or even just randomly jump on a ferry to Indonesia, or to take a 2-3h flight to Thailand or Hong Kong! Since I won’t be staying here for long, I try to maximize my weekend explorations, and my weekend fashion as well.

Weekdays are always routine and expectable, just like the commuter outfits: simple, neat and convenient. But for weekends, you may go out for a whole day and perhaps having different occasions within a day. So it’s really the time to select some special items to bring up your weekend mood and to be ready for the whole day of excitement!

What I talk about when i talk about brunch

Long time no see! Hope you all are doing well 😉

First, apologies for my super-long title, it’s from a book title of Haruki Murakami. However, this post is all about my nagging and has no relation with the great writer at all lol.  People have always been asking me how my life is in Singapore, feels like I really seldom update anything about this place. Is it because of the sunshine and hot weather here making me lazy?

Out of my expectation, life in Singapore can be very slow. Sometimes I even feel like I’m having a retired life here compared to in Hong Kong.

So, here I’m just gonna randomly post some photos, please understand my laziness. (@Fashionmimo)

Denim X Denim

Recently I found out some old pics about Denim. It was 2014 when I shot some pics for my layout design assignment and till today I still find these outfits interesting.

I always believe that if you wanna wear denim smart, just wear it on another denim! BUT! Just be aware of the colors and designs of your denim clothes, I don’t suggest you pairing your loose shirt and loose pants together…cuz sometimes it could be really awful… (@Fashionmimo)

70’s Fever

Clockenflap Music & Arts Festival is back in Hong Kong again this weekend. With over 45,000 participants in 2014, the scale is even larger this year . So please dress up and get ready for the music, arts and film carnival.

It’s never too hard to decide what to wear for a music festival: you could just wear whatever you want! To be Comfortable and Interesting, I think maybe that’s the only rule.

In fact, I have been dreaming to do some 70s outfit for a long time but I don’t have much chances to practice it since normally I’m just a bookworm shuttling between lecture hall and dorm.

So let’s see what are my key concepts about 70s:

1.Denim, especially flared jeans

If I have to choose 10 coolest designs ever, flared jeans must top the list. People always say there’s a revival of flared jeans but seriously has it ever been out of date??

2. Midriff Top, don’t be shy to show your belly!

Before the prosperity of American Apparel, my impression of 70s is all about the midriff top! Now they call it crop top and it’s just for those with perfect abs, what a shame!

3. Miniskirt, the high-waisted one

The fashion revolution of miniskirt since the early 1960s gives an enduring impact on our clothing culture. Even though it’s been over 50 years since the miniskirt protest outside Dior London, we still see the shorten hemline as a symbol to fight for women’s right today.

Endless Summer

Keep wondering what’s going on with the weather, it’s already mid-November but in Hong Kong you still feel like in summer. So every time when I see a long coat, I tell myself “Ok I will bring you home next time, if it gets cooler.” But I still haven’t got the chance LOL

Last Sunday I have visited Peng Chau,  a small island near Hong Kong with no traffic on.  The only way to get there is to take a 20 mins ferry from the Central in Hong Kong. Basically it’s a small village surrounded by the ocean and mountains (there’s a popular hiking trail called Peng Yu Path btw). My art teacher Mr. Yeung is a Peng Chau based art guru and he has a gallery here. Thanks to his invitation, I have the chance to explore this tranquil place with strong local culture.

Since there’s no car on the island, bikes are necessary for both tourists and residents.(@Fashionmimo)

Have to say this island is really an ideal place for photo shooting, thank you Nana Wu for modelling this time ❤ (@Fashionmimo)

It was tea time when we entered the restaurant. In Peng Chau, afternoon tea is never a highbrow thing. Just to grab some milktea with a sandwich, life should be easy isn’t it? (@Fashionmimo)
