thrifting in hong kong - mee & gee

mee n gee 2

Last weekend I visited the Hong Kong Museum of History at Tsim Sha Tsui and on my way to the MTR station, I came across a Mee & Gee store.Since I have no other plans after visiting the museum, I popped into the store. No luck this time, I went home empty handed. So, if you ever happened to visit the museum or in the area, do drop by at the Mee & Gee store located at Granville Road.

Hope you are having a great weekend. Stay chic always!

fashion project: diy beaded collar top

I am happy to start working on some DIY fashion projects again. So, here is the first fashion project of the year; a DIY beaded collar top. This is a relative easy fashion project especially for those who know how to sew with a needle. And you can do this whilst watching the telly or listening to the radio (multi-tasking is good, no?)

what you need

What you will need: 

Various sizes of faux pearls/beads
Sequins (recommended)
Crystals (optional)
A pair of scissors 
A top 


This is a random beads pattern, hence sew or bead as you like.


Here is a close-up on the beads.

The finished collar!

What do you think of this project? Easy peasy? Hope you will give it a try.

Happy trying and till the next entry, stay chic!

passion in shoes designing

One of my new year resolutions is to continue submitting entries to the Footwear Design Competition organized by the Federation of Hong Kong Footwear Ltd as part of learning process and gaining experience in developing and drawing shoes designs. I hope someday I can make into the finals (keeping my fingers crossed!).

The reason I am participating in the competition is to challenge myself and to see how far I can make it. From the past submissions, it was pretty obvious I need to work harder.

Here are my past entries...

Soon, I will start to work my entries for this year's submission. Hhhmmm... I wonder what are my inspirations for upcoming designs.

On lighter note, hope you are having a great weekend. Till the next post, stay chic!

pradasphere - hong kong

pradasphere location


Pradasphere, a special exhibition exploring the universe of one of the well known designers of our time; Prada. The exhibition was held from 19th November to 5th December 2014 at Pier 4, Central, Hong Kong. Pradasphere is a collection of archival items arranged to reveal complex, often intertwined, obsessions of one of the world's most influential brands. The exhibition was divided into six different sections featuring diverse materials such as historical artifacts, products from the company archive, films, textiles, images and ephemera. 


This section was all about the origin of the brand. Prada was established by Mario Prada in 1913, in Milan. Prada was an exclusive, stylish store selling luggage, accessories and luxury goods, in fine, rare and luxurious materials and of sophisticated workmanship. In 1919, Prada received the warrant of 'Official Supplier of the Italian Royal Household' and this earned the right to use royal Savoy coat of arms and knotted-rope insignia of the House of Savoy into its logo.
