MERCURY

Nail Rock c/o Market HQ (here), rings from H&M

I always seem to mess up any form of sticker/screen application (never ask me to apply a screen protector for you- never unless you enjoy looking at screen full of air bubbles). These Nail Rock stickers were no exception- except to my delight, you couldn't really see the spots i messed up do to the overall awe-inducing metallic shine. They look amazing even if you're a total klutz like me and are the biggest compliment magnets. And hey, who doesn't like having mercurial silver talons?

Anyway, tonight me and Bryant are heading to an exciting event. More on that later!

INSTAGRAM+FALL/WINTER PLAYLIST



[track list: you've got the love- the xx, shyness- thieves like us, my touch- toro y moi, travelling- paper lions, chocolate distance- karuan, loftcries- purity ring, blackeye- love inks, crave you- flight facilities, thirteenthirty- dillon, a walk- tycho, survive feat. oceane- left boy, backfire- lana del rey]

Due to the eternal mixed-emotion state of Hong Kong weather, I've aptly named this new playlist finter (fall/winter...geddit?)-'wall' was considered but deemed too ambiguous. Anyway, my instagram username is @zosuen if you guys want to follow me up there and i hope you enjoy the music! tell me whatcha think.

GET BACK

wearing: top from taipei, shorts c/o Minkpink via  MarketHQ, watch from casio, shoes c/o Romwe, leather jacket c/o Motel Rocks. Photos by Josephine.

Believe it or not, it took me the longest time to climb onto that ledge- Josephine can testify for that with video evidence of me in Bear Grylls- esque combat, batting leaves from my path and ripping the back of my tights in the process. I'm not exactly an outdoors person but living in an area abundant with mosquitoes in the summer time, i can safely say i've grown accustomed to defending myself against the 'greater' creatures in nature. However, I've had the experience of coming across the biggest snake whilst on a run with a friend and upon discovering it, screaming and running back as fast as possible. Despite my evidently abundant nature-skills, the funniest scenario is when i see people when i shoot. During the course of this shoot we had to make way for herds of students walking home and i'm pretty sure a few of them were holding hands in gripping fear of...me?
I'm not scary i promise.

wearing: Peter Pilotto top and skirt, Nicholas Kirkwood shoes, Last picture: Motel Rocks leather jacket

I've never been one for peplums, until i came across the mind-numbing amazingness that was this Peter Pilotto top. It was heavy as hell and was hard to put on due to layers of infrastructure but it was worth it (and i mean, that skirt?!). For once i felt like i had a smiggle of curves on my figure and the hip-bump worthy padding was a big plus. Wearing (two!) pieces by one of my favorite designers has really etched Peter Pilotto's name into my 'fashion gods' list- and yes, 'etched' was a necessary verb. At the end i had to admit defeat and change back into my outfit (feeling a loss of hip volume and womanly-ness once i did so) but it was nice being Cinderella for a while. If Cinderella got to wear Peter Pilotto...hey, she was pretty kickass.

Thanks so much Priscilla and Electric Sekki for an amazing event!

wearing: romper and jacket by motel rocks, Bryant's clutch.  Photos by Bryant.

The other night, Bryant, Beatrice and I dropped by the show rooms in Sheung Wan to check out the newest pieces by Britain's biggest names in fashion design, courtesy of Electric Sekki. Our hearts were palpitating seeing favorite pieces off the runway, from Peter Pilotto's stunning prints and volume to Jonathan Saunders' beautiful garments and Nicolas Kirkwood's lust-worthy shoes. We were lucky enough to go through racks and racks of clothing and trying on some pieces as well, but i'll show you more pictures of that later. In the meantime, this is what i wore that night! hope you like it :)

VIDEO: BEHIND THE SCENES OF MY SHOOT WITH NATALIE


I've been itching to show you guys this video for weeks, but didn't want to spoil any of the outfits. But here it is, in all it's iPhone-filmed glory (courtesy of Bryant). Thanks again Natalie for an amazing shoot! I can't wait until we shoot again (hopefully during Christmas break) but until then i'm afraid you guys are stuck with me and my tripod/occasional kind friend for photographic purposes. 
Have a great day and enjoy!
**hugs**

I SCREAM

wearing: DIY jumper, jeans from Romwe

Continuing my impetus that is eating/drinking in photos, here's a few shots of me inhaling some ice cream. By the time we walked up to the houses i already ate most of it which is why you can only see the remaining bits of the cone. Oh, and there's that coke bottle again hahaha
These are the last photos that Natalie took for me, but i hope we can shoot again since you guys seem to like them. For now i'll have to resort to tripod/sister (the latter is an expensive choice) but i've found some new places to shoot so i'll try to spice things up. Have a great night guys!

JAGUAR

wearing: skirt and belt c/o beginning boutique, parka c/o sugarlips apparel, cardigan (inside) from american apparel, shoes from converse, glasses from taobao.

It's still a bit warm here to be wearing this, (resulting in strange stares from neighborhood morning walkers and dog owners) but i really couldn't wait to start layering. I feel like summer equals an inevitable down-season for blogging when you're incapable of wearing anything more than a tank top and shorts, so fall is a little too exciting for me. My dad took these photos for me and i discovered a few new spots to shoot, save the occasional awkward judging glances of the physically motivated elderly and dog-owning community. Anyway, i just can't wait for days when wearing a beanie does not induce confused glances and tights can actually be layered with socks (plus the ever-looming glory that is christmas).
have a great day guys!

BAM BAM

wearing: jeans c/o Motel Rocks, sweater from H&M (old), shoes c/o choies, belt from H&M

I'm pretty obsessed with this jeans+boots combo, the stripes are so flattering and they were on my lust list for the longest time, so i was pretty ecstatic when Motel decided to gift me a pair (with some other cute stuff i'll show you soon). The shoes fit me so well and are decidedly the only pair of footwear i own that actually make my feet look smaller (one less blogger-related problem to worry about, hey?). Also, i was stupid enough to forget my tripod mount for my camera after walking for 10 minutes to these stairs (plus a surplus of 2 minutes of self-pity induced groaning) so i spent most of the shoot praying my camera wouldn't topple off the tripod. Yeah, it gave me quite an adrenaline rush living on the edge of danger like that. 
**hugs**

P.S. I've developed a weird purply bruise next to my right eyebrow, courtesy of ikea bookshelf. Good job, zoe. 

P.P.S. my thoughts go out to everyone affected by Sandy...hang in there!
