OOTD: les cheveux court

First post in October! Just realised that there are only 3 months left for this year, it’s just too fast! I keep wondering why time passes much much faster now than when I was a kid, anyone feels the same?

In order to get rid of my tangled long hair and to welcome the upcoming turtule-neck season(:D), I cut my long hair short. And have to say, it’s super cool to have a carefree and neat hairstyle! Especially good for those mornings when I gotta rush to class after maybe like 4 hours sleep, I don’t even need a comb 😀

It rained a lot in Hong Kong these days, then after this maybe we will eventually have the cool autumn. So let’s see what my OOTD is for the pre-fall weather.

Maybe some would ask: WHY pencil skirt AGAIN?? Well, I have to apologise for my pencil-skirt fetish(lol) but I’m always in love with their nice cutting!

This time I chose a longer one with side slits. The thick fabric brings more vintage feelings to the whole look. (@Fashionmimo)

Also I need some petit flowers to avoid being dull, ring and necklace are both from the french brand Les Nereides. (@Fashionmimo)

Happy Stroll

Finally back in Hong Kong for school but obviously I am not in working mood in the first week. Hence I met up with some friends and started a shoot-stroll-eat day 😀 Sheung Wan(the soho area near Central) has always been my favourite strolling spot in Hong Kong, so this time we shot our OOTD there and had some delectable plates in a restaurant with a petit garden.

The Food

We randomly walked in Mo’s Bros because of it’s delicate little gate. It is so lucky that we got walk-in seats. Cuz later when I checked online, people complained that this place is always full. The address is B/F & G/F, 16 Elgin Street, Soho, Central, Hong Kong. (@Fashionmimo)

Be Natural

HELLO! Sorry for my absence for over a month because… it’s the internship season. Well, it’s a long story and I don’t even know where to start with. But whatever it’s always good to leave my comfort zone and do something I don’t have much chances to do (even though it’s unpaid…)

Well, I’d better not making this too negative. So let’s talk about my weekends. On weekdays, normally I stay in the office for more than 10hours. Hence I crave the fresh air and the nature so much. And I’ve follow some interesting accounts on instagram such as “vintage_vogue”and “70sdaily”. They are quite inspiring that make me wanna do something “country” and “70s” by myself.

Floral Pieces

Keep doing some street snaps this week, and I believe you have prepared some floral dresses for this hot summer haven’t you?

Floret flowers printed on the silk dress. We all know that ‘less is more’, and this also applies to flourish elements. Hence I would pay more attention on the texture. (@Fashionmimo)

Crop Top Never Go Out of Style

Can’t remember since when, crop tops have replaced my regular T-shirts.  As a girl with broad shoulders, it’s really confusing that most normal size T-shirts become too small for me. Or sometimes I can’t tell why, they just look weird 😦 Especially for the round collar T-shirt, it’s just a nightmare: it will make my shoulders look wider and thicker.

Then I found crop top solves most of these problems with it’s nice cutting. There’s a basic rule for myself: If I wanna choose a top with sleeves, then it must be with wide-neck or shoulder-off; or vice versa, high-neck and sleeveless would be better.

Crop top and high waisted jeans are always BFF. Sometimes if I don’t have a high-waisted jeans with me, I would tie a shirt around my waist to balance the whole look.

Most crop tops have matching skirts, it’s stylish to wear a whole set in the same pattern. But you can also match it by yourselves:) One of my favourite is pencil skirt, neat but elegant. (@Fashionmimo)

Spring Look in 10 mins

This time my friend Alison would share her SUPER EASY make-up video about how to look natural/fresh in spring time.

Wondering if the cherry blossom is still blooming?  Then why not put some light pink on your face to make it glow, too?

#Brightness is the whole concept of this look, I feel blessed to have a highlight stick with me, it’s super powerful:)

Feel Like Wide Leg Pants

Well, I believe that everyone has at least heard about Wide Leg Pants for several times. They are back on trend AGAIN. I just find myself unable take them off once I put on, cause they’re truly comfortable and balanced. However, some of my friends would complain,”Uhhh I don’t think a short girl could handle them.” or “They make my legs look shorter!”

Here I wanna say is, wide leg pants are definitely not just for models!  They magically hide most girls’ less confident parts (waist and hips), and show the line between calf to ankle (which is extremely sexy). There are some tips for those who are still hesitating to put them on.

1. Choose a high-waist one.

Well well… if you are not that confident about your shape, please think about it before you choose something like this…

High-waist pants will perfectly stretch your legs,  combined with wide flares also make your shape looks better.

2. “Crop pants and high heels”

If you have no idea about how to match your pants, remember: high heels never go wrong.  Especially for crop pants, a pair of high heels would become your best weapon to catch others’ attention.

3. There’s no rule!

Not like jeans or hot pants, you can wear this pants at any occasion. Office, beach, party… never restrain your ideas, try every possibilities! (@Fashionmimo)

For party or beach, let the pink crop tank and wide leg jeans to bring up your mood! (@Fashionmimo)
