I was recently in Hong Kong (again) for a quick getaway. It’s my third time to the dusty, leaky, boisterous city. Hong Kong has been my top choice for a short and cheap vacation after the commencement of budget airlines and the presence of my best friend who’s currently based there.
In my past trips to Hong Kong, I have mostly been busy with doing things like shopping in Mongkok, taking part in pub quizzes, joining random meet-ups, going on cruises out to the sea, hunting for vintage shops… None of which are part of a classic tourist itinerary. But this last time it was different. I was there with my boyfriend and we ended up doing a lot of tourist-type things I never got around to in my previous trips, like taking the tram to the peak and taking a bus to the sleepy town of Stanley for some sight-seeing.
And the top feature of my outfits on this trip is my very first handmade floral blouse. Wow, this blouse dates all the way back to 2010!
Another big feature would be mid-century inspired shoes from modern shoe shops that probably had no idea their shoes are mid-century inspired. The pair of black T-bar shoes were on sale at Rubi Shoes for just $10 while the white sling backs were from Charles and Keith.
Am I wearing the same pair of shoes as that lady in pants or what?
