comfort zone

It might be a little late for this but... anyway... Incase you missed it, Alexandre Plokohov of Helmut Lang did a collaboration with Uniqlo few months ago (last September if I'm not mistaken).  I've never got the chance to put up a look for what I got from the collection, so here it is.
I love how the collection was focused mainly on sweats - from hooded sweaters, to pants and shorts - I'll have to admit, I'm a sucker for comfy clothes so I couldn't miss getting something from the collection. And finally after months of searching for the right running shoes, Nike Pegasus it is! Still sticking with black but with a twist this time - it glows when spotted with light, which I think is pretty cool. Hah! ;)

btw, creds to the mother who patiently took the photos - she's getting better and better at it. haha!

Jour d'Hermès Absolu (Christmas Box Set)

Christmas is just few weeks away and as a part of the preparation for the holidays, (aside from reducing few lbs to make space for the upcoming feasts... guilty, here. haha.), a lot from us are probably planning to do some Christmas shopping already. The gift-searching-for-loved-ones season has finally arrived, but heck it's the most fun shopping season of all times, right? Here's one to put on your list to make it easier for you - the Jour d'Hermes Absolu. A special Christmas set, presented in a Fêtes en Hermès box, featuring the latest Jour d'Hermès Absolu 85ml perfume (HK$1280), a 7.5ml miniature perfume, 30ml perfumed body milk and 30ml shower gel. The perfume represents the celebration of the rebirth of the femininity with its floral essence that brings to light the beauty of a woman, while maintaining the mystery of her individuality - voluptuousness and elegance combined. The catch is that the box set is offered for only the price of the perfume - what's not to love? :)

I bet the one you'll be gifting this will have the merriest Christmas ever. ;)

Jour d'Hermès Absolu Christmas Box Set is available at Hermès Stores.

Hey, it's the final round of the FW'14 Style Series - again, last but never the least. This time, I am joined with my blogger friend - the super gorge and fun, Karen Chiang of helloabella.com.

We went for deep toned cozy coats - ones you could just throw on to match with simple outfit and viola, you're all set! Also, over-sized coats are making it big this season - style staple alert!

PART III | FW'14 Style Series

Simplicity with a statement detail for this outfit that could go from day to night. I love how the sweater's detail is all over it but still doesn't look too much. It works as a statement for the whole outfit that it's not even necessary to add on too much accessories. I can even imagine this with an oversized plain, dark colored scarf for a more chilly weather.

PART II | FW'14 Style Series

On for the 2nd part of the FW'14 Style Series, which I must say is my favorite look for this series. It's comfy, kinda laid-back and still chic. A combo of two from many of my favorite pieces: plain black over alls and a long printed kimono to add a statement that's not too flashy. Plus, the dark shades for the makeup that Ana used added an edgy feel.

PART I | FW'14 Style Series

We're feeling a little cold breeze already here in HK and it's just about time for another style series for fall/winter and this time, it's a collaboration with two of HK's bests - woohoo! - my favorite Frenchies, MARION TESSIER (Photographer) and ANA DARMON (Makeup Artist). Also, at the end of this collab style series, I'm joined with my gorge blogger buddy, KAREN CHIANG (helloabella.com) - watch out for that. *wink*

This fall, I'm eyeing on light weight pieces such as the blazer I'm wearing on this outfit. Aside from that, I love that it's a little longer, loose, kind of boyish and the embossed crocodile-like fabric detail makes the outfit edgier.

MAKEUP | Ana used the following:
Eyeshadow: Humid and Olive, MAC
Lipstick: Pure Heroine, MAC

New favorite: this pair of boots that I don't even know how to call. It's pointy but insanely comfy and sophisticated looking - GOTTA HAVE IT.

Thank you so much to Marion and Ana for the photography and makeup! :*
