Hey everyone!
here's the outfit post i was talking about in my video from the last post!
some of the pictures look a little faded, i don't know why :/
anyways, hope you all are doing well and having a good end-of-summer!

just a little update, teen vogue has updated their fashion click system, so now there's a blogger ranking depending on the number of hearts a blogger has per look! so if any of you would take a few seconds to make an account (if you don't already have one) on teenvogue.com and heart the looks you like, it would mean soso much to me!
(HERE) is the link to my fashion click page where you can heart my looks!
also remember to heart this post on bloglovin (the little red heart at the bottom of the post) :)

backpack- my dad
playsuit- thailand
hat (see my video)- H&M

I've been so busy lately, so sorry if i haven't blogged in a while. even if it seems like i don't blog all the time, i do have those constant blogger-type reminders in my brain which tell me i have to post outfit pictures ASAP :) don't worry, i will try to blog during even the busiest working periods of my school year!
i posted an outfit quite similar to this one around maybe a year ago, but i thought with the shoes and earphones and background it felt like a different outfit!
tee shirt- graniph (taipei)
tights- I.T.
boots- dr. marten
earphones- urbanears

my answers for you!

Hi everyone! i tried to answer all the questions from the comments on my last post, formspring, and emails :) enjoy!

What is your height?
I'm around 5 ft 7 inches :)

how much do you weigh?
approx 100 pounds, more or less

can you introduce your family members pls? xx <3
i would but they're a bit shy and don't want to be on the blog haha :) so i'll just give them their privacy! same for the question about the home video tour, sorry :)

How old are you?
15!

hm what do you look for in a partner? are you in a relationship right now? what is your favourite colour? what kinda music are you into?

I'm single but I guess i just want a guy who i can talk to a lot, with a good appetite (like me!), a kind personality, and is funny with a good sense of humour. It helps if he likes taking photos since using a tripod is so troublesome sometimes! plus, my sister is too lazy to help me most of the time :) my favorite color right now is lilac (light purple) it's too pretty!

in terms of music, i love ellie goulding, maroon 5, the temper trap, hall & oates, adele and she & him. i also love some popular artists such as taylor swift!

right now, songs i can't stop listening to:

love how it hurts- scouting for girls

skinny love- birdy

your song- ellie goulding

Something good can work- Two Door cinema club

Do you get requests from boys and admirers? sorry my english is not good.. xx

your english is totally fine! :) and actually, no! I don't get many of those even though if i did i would have no clue what i would do.

have you ever been in a romantic relationship? <3

never! maybe the right guy hasn't come along yet haha!

do you diet?

no :) i think that food is lovely and life is too short to care about size and things like that!

Hi dear <3 are you a professional model?

I'm so flattered but no, i don't think i could be since i'm already awkward enough posing for my sister when she helps me take pictures, nevermind someone i'm not familiar with!

how much / what do you eat a day?

for breakfast i have yoghurt, some juice, some toast or noodles if i'm hungry with some fruits. for lunch i have fried rice or some form of noodle with vegetables (i love fruits and veggies!). dinner is usually rice or something delicious made by my mom :) then if i'm hungry i have an ice cream or yoghurt, and during the day i have a snack if i'm starving. I try but i don't eat healthy at all! just make up for the unhealthy stuff with fruits and vegetables :)

favorite food?
such a hard question! either sushi, pasta, pizza, eggs, burgers or thai food. i also love taiwan food, its amazing! for fruits i love strawberries and grapes :) for snacks i like cookies with raisins and almonds and healthy stuff and some chocolate chips. once a yoga teacher brought some in for me to try after the class and now i'm hooked :)

can u make a post introducing some of ur pajamas or clothes that u wear at home?xoxo
i basically wear t shirts and sweats, nothing special :) i'm sure you don't want to see me in a mess like i am! but if you guys insist i'll do a video or something sometime :)

Your english is really good for a hong-konger. have you ever studied outside of Hong Kong before?
thanks! nope, lived in HK for all my life :) i go to an international school, which is why i don't have an accent!

can u introduce your school bag or backpacks? also involve what stationary do u use?
i use a kipling backpack, nothing super fancy or fashion forward :) i've wanted a cambridge satchel for ages, so i'm saving up all my money :) for stationary, i guess just usual pens?

Do you dye your hair? do you do anything to it?

nope, just shampoo, condition, blowdry, nothing too fussy :)

Who takes your photos? :D

my sister when she's feeling nice (haha) and mostly using a tripod and self timer!

What camera and lens do you use?

i use the canon 400D, with a 72mm zoom lens :)

what inspired you to make a blog, take pictures, etc, etc?

other bloggers and people on lookbook. my friend and i just thought it would be fun so we made one right away!

which countries have you travelled so far / would you like to travel?(:which one did you like best?(:

i've been to japan, germany, china, korea, australia, america, the czech republic, france, poland and england :) i think by far, new york is my favorite city in the world. i would love to visit africa and peru someday!

where do you usually buy your clothes/ what brands do you like?

how much do you spend on buying clothes each month?

i just go to the usual shops like H&M and zara, as well as local boutiques. i love shopping online (even though i don't do it often) and i like adding stuff to my "shopping bag" and pretending that i bought it (haha)). For online shopping i visit asos.com.

i don't spend much on average on clothes, i buy most of my clothes in cheap stores, sales or vacation. my favorite is when people give me gift vouchers which i can spend on anything i like.

Do you enjoy reading? what are you reading if yes?

yes, i love it! I just re-read pride and prejudice by Jane Austen and am currently reading Sense and Sensibility. I also have a weakness for magazines like lula, teen vogue and NYLON (US and Japan, of course!), but who doesn't?

what photo editor do you use?

photoshop cs3 extended!

how do you get features in magazines and blogs?

just work hard on your blog, express your personal style and sooner or later someone will notice your blog :)

are you full chinese?

yes, i'm full chinese!

how do you recommend exercising for fitness? like losing weight to look like those models? xoxox

i think the best way to look good is to have confidence, but if you insist on losing weight, just do a sport you enjoy doing and eat healthy! Of course, not everyone can look as skinny as a runway model, but the most important thing is being healthy.

KIMONO (+ tutorial!)

The other day i was bored and decided to try making a simple kimono jacket with chiffon and this is what i came up with!
it's not super fancy or anything, in fact it's so simple you could do it in two steps:

1) get a big piece of square material. mine was around the length of my arm. You could also use a scarf you already own. If you're using your own fabric, hem the sides with a sewing machine.

2)fold the fabric in half so that it's like a rectangle, and take the edges that touch and either tie knots for a temporary kimono, or sew together at the back of the fabric.

And that's it! what's more, you can use it as a bag too (with lighter objects) by using the arm holes as handles and putting stuff in the middle.

Today i'm trying to enjoy the last days of summer and i'm heading to the beach with my friend and sister!

kimono- DIY
shorts- vintage (NYC) via screaming mimi's
bodysuit- american apparel
glasses- old shop

as you can see, i got a little crazy on the roof yesterday. i had to wake up early so i could steal this tee from my sister (shhh!), so i was still half awake! but i really love taking pictures on the roof now, so much more private than in the car park (people would stare and randomly walk past while i was using my tripod...awkward!) which background do you guys prefer? leave a comment (or two)!

I might be doing a Q&A again soon! tell me if you guys would like that :)

cropped tee- H&M
maxi skirt- H&M
sandals- neighborhood boutique
glasses- vintage

GALAXY LOVE

GALAXY
Christopher Kane Resort 2011 (via style.com)

Is it possible to marry a collection? this one by one of my favorite designers Christopher Kane is perfect, especially since i'm now obsessed with galaxy prints. has anyone seen any good ones around that aren't too expensive? I know there are the blackmilk leggings and stuff from romwe but other than that?
Its so pretty, i can't stop staring!


p.s. to answer some questions from the last post about my DIY:
yes, i did DIY the lace crop top and grey "holey" shirt (from 2 posts ago) myself. For the crop top, i just cut out the fabric and hemmed the edges! for the sweater, i already had a grey sweater, so i just cut the holes, rolled up the sleeves and bottom and sewed all the edges and sides :)
