Vogue Fashion Night Out- Hong Kong

Friday night a few girlfriends and I, attended Vogue's Fashion Night Out at the Lane Crawford in Kowloon. There was plenty of fashion and amazing shoes to get excited about. I tried on some red soles, sipped champagne and got some tattoo body art done. The evening was lovely, and it was a complete change to working at the event in London last year!

Last night a girlfriend and I attended a very swanky launch party for Brew&Post at the W hotel. It was an event to celebrate the new online platform of a collective of renowned international bloggers based in Hong Kong. The night consisted of tasty cocktails, delicious wines and amazing art! A lot of the night, we were wondering around the surroundings taking in the fabulous architecture. To date, it is one of my fav hotels I’ve discovered, so if you don’t know where to find me....

I do love my print....

Yesterday evening for the second time I attended the fabulous HK Fashion Bloggers’ Monthly Meetup event hosted by Jasmine Webster. This month’s guest sponsor was Hair Konnections, right up my street, as many of you know I am defiantly one for changing and experimenting with my hair dos! So in true Nicki Minaj style I opted for this fierce animal print hair piece.....very me n'est pas?

And all that Jazz....

The Jazz Age (music, dance and fashion) started in the 1920s, it saw the end of the great depression. Jazz played a significant part in wider cultural changes during that period, and its influence on pop culture continued long afterwards. The Great Gatsby, the Charleston dance, and Ray Charles all depictions of the 1920’s. As much as I love dance, film and music, It is the dramatic change in women’s fashion that took place during this period which I love the most. So when the guy and I went to a Jazz bar last night, I decided to emerge myself in the fashion and style.
The most iconic 1920s fashion was of course the flapper style, which became popular in the mid 1920s, alongside that, the drop waist dress, was very admired, often heavily beaded with a scalloped hemline. This era is where the Mary-Jane’s made their debut. The accessory that ruled in the 20’s was of course, pearls and lots of them, made famous by a certain Coco Chanel. To complete the look a close fitting headpiece or feathers were worn around the forehead. Some women also wore shrugs and long white gloves.
Millie did it so well last year in Made in Chelsea’s 1920’s party.
To ultimately finish the look of course you had to have wavy hair and red lips, re-applied at regular intervals!
The guy and I really enjoy stepping back a few decades, and I got to listen to one of my favourite instruments the sax!

Half naked men in HK

Last week I was wondering around central, minding my own business, turned the corner to Pedder Street, and I was pleasantly surprised. There was a sea of hot semi naked guys dressed in only red shorts, they were waving to the crowd of happy people, mainly women… of course I waved back not to be rude. Along with all the other females, I had a big grin on my face, and had my camera out to capture this.....
Abercrombie & Fitch Grand opening is Saturday, August 11 at 11am sharp at the historic Pedder Building in Central....see you there :-)

Shoe Spree

So last week I was a bit naughty and brought two pairs of gorg shoes, my justification was they were on sale and they have been exactly what ive been looking for: a crème pair of strapies from Mango, and some very high Burberry Prorsum esk style wedges for the great British shop M&S! Both shoes are so comfortable for trailing the streets of HK :-)

Let the games begin....(London 2012)

Where has the time gone… today London will host the Olympic Games for the third time, the only city to do so. When the last Olympic Games took place in London in 1948, Omega was there as the Official Timekeeper, and this will be the same for 2012. As most of you know, I am no longer in London anymore, guess I can’t time these events to fit into my schedule, should have got an Omega watch instead,of my Marc Jacobs one! Despite not being in my home town, Hong Kong is most definitely fully representing London 2012. A home a way from home. People rocking the t-shirts in the street, shop windows, underground station promotions and designers showing their support.
On a fashion note. Giorgio Armani, who has designed the Olympic team’s official kit, recently declared that London 2012 would be “the most fashionable Olympic Games ever”.
Ultimately, though, what every nation is striving for at these Games isn’t fashion kudos, but medals…..I feel very patriarchal at the moment, and will stay up till 4am HK time to watch the opening ceremony later …Go GB!!
