"Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking."
Sounds familiar, no? I'm sure everyone who has a thing for fashion has seen the movie The Devil Wears Prada and this is one of Miranda Priestly's lines (Meryl Streep's boss from hell). If you've not seen this it's definitely worth getting a DVD of, because this movie showcases some amazing fashion and is wittily hilarious. One literally cannot get enough of it.
We must apologize for a lack of update and we hope you might just forgive us but's a new spring look. Florals for spring - not groundbreaking indeed, but still appropriate for the season. After all when else do flowers blossom and Mother Nature breathes new life into everything? We paired a navy blue beanie with a tee in the same color, plus the pair of brown loafers we featured in some previous posts. The central piece here is naturally the floral shorts. Now those "shorts" were actually a skirt, and it's a work of genius by Monica. She thought it would give a slight twist to the common sweet-girl floral skirt. Too pink a lip might make this outfit too girly to be ideal, so we used a classic red instead. Feminine still, but bolder.

We hope you like this new outfit of ours and please tell us right below what you think about it! The Easter holidays have started and hopefully there will be more outfits coming up :)

Stay Tough

 Hi, everyone! This is a preppy look with a tougher edge. It is always nice to include different elements in your outfits. We have a few repeat pieces from the past posts. Obviously we do not have the biggest wardrobe in the world, so it is really important for us to mix and match and put together different looks using the limited pieces.

We can already feel the spring breeze here in Hong Kong (and inevitably, the humidity), and we believe some spring shopping is in order for a whole new wardrobe :)

Hey guys! As you can see, we're trying to do a grungier look here. We love trying out different styles and a change once in a while is awesome. This is a darker look from what we put together usually and it's altogether a rather different style, more of an edgier grunge, street-wise. We are aiming for a dark lip for this outfit and we used Diva by MAC. Tell us what you think of the outfit!

round sunnies - h&m
grey tee - junk food
dots shirt - Monica's mum
denim shorts
worn white 8-eye boots - doc martens

We're thinking about going to the Born This Way Ball Starring Lady Gaga in May and we are supposed to dress to "ball". Would be nice to adopt a similar kind of look, but more dramatic, don't you think? ;)
Check the outfit out on ! New post coming very soon x

Cloud 9

It's still really cold in Hong Kong, but it's definitely getting more humid - spring is coming and we're psyched to rebuild our s/s wardrobes! This is a casual spring look you might want to try out for yourselves. We paired items of different shades of earth, namely the fuzzy tan beanie, the oatmeal scarf and the brown tee. With the usual pair of denim shorts and some classic Converse sneakers, we're ready to go :)

brown tee - forever 21

black sneakers - converse

By the way: we're using a new lipstick here! Ellie got it in Korea and it's Diva by M.A.C. It's a really dark lipstick and it tends to give looks a dramatic finish. We aren't looking for an extremely dark shade here, so we blended it with a classic red lipstick from Make Up Forever. Our makeup collection is growing constantly and when we've got the chance we will show you guys :)
We hope you guys like the new look! Do tell us what you think. More coming up! x

Our apologies for not posting in an extremely long while! Schoolwork is getting the better of us (Hong Kong students fight a losing battle against time famine every day). Nevertheless we squeezed some time in for a photoshoot and we've got awesome outfits lined up to show you guys :)
Basically this is a super casual outfit for one of those weekends when you don't feel like dressing up too much. We are not attracted to the idea of looking like a complete mess, so we're trying to put the cool in to sloppy. Nothing goes wrong with a cozily familiar tee and some comfy shoes, especially when it's so bitterly cold like right now in HK.

Hope you guys like the look! Do tell us what you think. See you soon x

Dippin' Dots

Our approach to fashion is not unlike Dippin' Dots ice-cream - "unique, futuristic and fun" lol. We fell in love with this printed blouse which is gorgeously scattered with bite-size dots and we had to show you guys. Besides we featured another piece from the "Home Comfort" look and it's this darling pair of loafers. They come in a great color, great price and they're so comfortable.

We still haven't thanked everyone properly for all your amazing support! You might've noticed that we've reached 100 fans on recently and we are absolutely thrilled, because someone somewhere out there is appreciating what we've done. Some might not consider this a remarkable feat, but this means A LOT to us, especially since we've not been blogging for long and we're practically babies. I promise we will keep up with the good work and we really hope to receive your continual support! So thank you very very much for being a part of our little success.
We love you at An Apparel Affair ;) x
