Spring in Hong Kong is experiencing some cold feet at the moment. One week, it's warm, the next it's back to winter, and these constant highs and lows are not ideal. To combat the ever changing weather, I've devised an outfit that is my best attempt at keeping up with the climate. A transitional outfit if you will.
Hello Lovelies! Today's video is a super simple DIY that I've been itching to do for a really really long time. I have been coveting a pair of patent faux leather shoes for absolutely ages but unfortunately my budget does not allow for a new pair of shoes at the moment. I have found a work around (however temporary) but it's still satisfying to have a pair of shiny black shoes that somewhat resemble patent black shoes and I am so happy to share it with you! These shoes have made guest appearances in a few of my outfit posts and after hinting about them (here and here), I have finally uploaded the DIY! Hope you enjoy!
After a month of chaos, I finally got time off this weekend to just chill out and lounge around and it was the most relaxing and casual weekend in such a long time. There's something about a lazy Sunday that I just absolutely love, and living on my couch for two days doing absolutely nothing was so satisfying, I just had to share it with you all.
I very much miss Korea and editing this haul made me miss it even more. If you want to see awkward jump cuts and me failing miserably to construct a coherent sentence click the play button and let me know what you think in the comments! I'll be eating kimchi on my sofa while listening to kpop, reminiscing about all of the Korean BBQ that I had on that trip. Cue gentle sobbing noises.
Wearing: mock neck from Korea, watch from Camden Market, easy jeans from American Apparel, shoes DIY from H&M
I absolutely love how these photos turned out. I think that if I had never pursued theater, I would have gone into photography. Something about catching the perfect lighting and framing the subject in just the right way is so exhilarating. Maybe if photography was never digitized I would have stuck with it longer. One of the reasons why I don't think it's the perfect path for me to go down career wise is because I obsess over images. These photos made me proud, right out of the camera, but now with photoshop at my disposal, I strive for that perfect image that I have in my head and I won't stop until it translates on the screen (or until my eyes feel like they're going to fall out of my skull).
I mean they still didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted to, but they're definitely a step in the right direction. This is probably the closest I'll ever get to capturing what inspiration is to me. Capturing that feeling of being right on the edge of something absolutely brilliant taking shape, and knowing that it chose you to take along for the ride.
And then of course while I was fooling around I had to take a Kim K-esque photo because these jeans are the only thing that make me kind of have a butt. That and yoga pants, though I don't personally own any. Anything that you're proud of that you'd like to share? I'd love to know so leave it in the comments!
