Back in the Jing and the air tastes sweeter. Getting ripped off by taxi drivers while they cackle at my lack of linguists; navigating the streets trying to overtake old dears with zero spacial awareness; ice-whipping cold, feel that slap? Feels like the Jing.
We already spoke about Honkers and how it was seducing me to spend, spend, spend. Well here's what I spent on, I managed to limit myself and picked up some simple bits that are going to be easy to wear and re-wear and layer and so on.
Before we get to clothes, there were a few other essentials such as pictures for my apartment, loads of chocolate and some underwear (Marks & Spencer) . My knicks have been getting super twisted in the Jing, battered and ripped up by the washing system and it's been hard to find any replacements. So happy to spot that dark green lettering, knowing that I could wrap myself in comfortable, well-fitting, good quality under garments.
Italian leather handbag from vintage store Bang Bang! 70s an instant connection, had to have. This hidden shop was filled with vintage designer bags and sunnies, enter if you're willing to splash, it's hard to leave avec cash.
H&M 2 basic tees which are going to get worn on a constant basis.
Black perfect length jumper from COS. Which by the way has become one of my fave high street retailers after this stint in HK. I had never been drawn to their clothing until now, so either I've changed or they've changed, something has and I honestly wanted everything. This jumper has an exposed zip running the length of the back, usually I don't like this but the zip is black so it fades into the jumper, providing a nice subtle interest. The length excites me much, perfect over tights, leggings, jeans and the rest.
Another COS purchase. A smart 3/4 length black dress, that can be made to look casual and fits great. Love the neck line.
COS again, grey cardi alert! Can't stop wearing it, it's another item with a length to die for.
Final purchase a cashmere hat from COS. I get a little paranoid when it comes to head wear so I was happy to find one that I don't feel completely ridic wearing, in fact I enjoy it.
Big thanks to my Jing sis and bestie Justine for snapping moi in the outfit pics, such a good eye xoxo
