Magic of alterations

You wouldnt even realise how much difference just shortening a dress will make !! This dress was suppose to be just above the knee... which i thought made this dress look like a really mumsy dress and looks kinda ugly! but for 80 bucks.. i was abt to chuck it at the back of my wardrobe until i realise i can just shorten it !

so gonna wear it with stockings in winter and in summer with leggings...

shoes are new too by the way ... guess how much they were haha (hint: super cheap)

Jewellery on sale again!

Hey guys

Our stuff on sale again check our ebay site, theres a link on the bottom of the page or right hand tab!

Please check it out!

Dona & Ko

Reasons why I am broke - no.1

Item no.1 - cherry french blouse...

Been shopping around the factory outlet like MAD recently cos stuff are just too good to resist at like cheapass prices! Like this top you wouldnt even believe how much it is...

The problem with cheap stuff is you just buy it whether or not you will wear it... you know its just like the sales... you prob wont buy it if its not on sale but when its on sale you think its just cheap so you buy it so you actually end up spending more !

OK i will now use the gym to take over my shopping ... im too broke to spend a cent !

I will update 1 item each day of my crazy cheap bargains hehee

Autumn Moon Festival

My mooncake mould....imprinted with my family surname
It's a cloudy Saturday. Just went off to my grandma's to send her some mooncakes which I made on Monday for the upcoming Autumn Moon Festival. She insisted we should eat it together so we did and actually it tasted quite good. It is very time consuming to make as I spent over 3 hours after work to make 8 mini ones with my friends at a cooking class. This did not even include the preparation time for the inside ingredients since this was provided by the teacher. It was fun overall and I also kept the mould. Basically, you could choose to have any characters you want stamped on the mooncake- but I chose my surname to represent my family.

Light Denim Dress could be matched with any top or belt to give it a different look

Bhangra and Medley

While Ko was busy enjoying herself at the Lane Crawford Launch this evening, I visited my local gym with my colleague dancing to Bhangra. You are probably wondering what the hell it is like me before I went besides knowing that it is some Indian Dance. It is actually a folk dance conducted by farmers to celebrate the coming of Spring and the new Bhang harvest, a time known as Vaisakhi.

Above is another of my favourite outfits purchased from the HK fashion outlet that I wore to work today. I actually bought it for a surprisingly low price of about ($30USD). The quality of it is sooo good. The buttons are so cute and durable that I have taken a close up pic to show you.

Lane Crawford Fall Launch - What to wear?

I got this party to go to and I am still choosing what to wear! i hate to overdress as I feel like i am trying too hard ... espeically to these events... everyone has to pretend they dont care so cant dress too fancy!

So thats why I was thinking maybe I should wear my hot pink flats to give it a casual funk look? Or should i wear my heels??? arrggghhh...

Floral Dresses part 2

Just as I was shopping for my friend's birthday present today, I spotted this lovely floral dress. You could also wear it back to front as one side has 2 ribbons you could tie to close up the dress. Again this was purchased at our fav shopping outlet in Hong Kong. The colours are easy to match with any shoes and the price of this dress is such bargain we gotta go back frequently to get the latest styles. As Hong Kong is a fast paced city, so is it's fashion trend, so you are bound to find something that you like in every style and colour. Guess how much this dress was.......$$
