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 :)

oatmeal scarf - h&m
brown tee - forever 21
high-waisted denim shorts
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
