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)

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)

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.

Shirt from M&S, pencil skirt from ZARA. Heeled sandals and clutch are from MOUSSY. (@Fashionmimo)

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.

OOTD: Summer Outfits

It has always been a problem to cool myself down under the sticky hot weather. You know, no one would really care about what you’re wearing when it’s above 30 degrees Celsius all the time. When everyone is stinky and sticky then you realise FASHION is not needed anymore (laugh).

Just kidding, I still need to blog and THANK YOU Alison and Tori for modeling this time 😀 Wondering if there’s anyone like us struggling in the hot weather, let’s talk about our summer outfits! To be neat and comfortable, that’s my summer dressing rule.

The cold colored denim and the white dress could be a good match. (@Fashionmimo)

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)

Peach Smokey Eyes

This time Alison shows her summer time makeup about peach smokey eyes.

Inspired by the floral makeup looks in bridal runway shows, the light coral/ peach/violet colors could be a new attempt for everyday makeup.

There are only two points to notice: 1. rather than earthy smokey eyes, it highlights the “light” and “sweet” concepts, so try to avoid thick eyeliner. 2.For a runway makeup, the glow and light skin tone is truly important. In this case luminous foundation and simmer stick could improve the dull complexion.

As you see, despite the eyeshadows, we put more efforts on the primer, foundation and highlighter. For everyday makeup, we don’t want to make it too heavy, so the right products seem to be more important to brighten the skin tone.

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.

American Apparel is the easiest way for me to get different types/colors of crop top. (@Fahionmimo)

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)
