Brown brogues and bag

Here I am wearing Monki t-shirt, H&M handbag and blazer, Zara shoes and shorts. Um, I do not know what to write here again.


Listen to
Arcade Fire - Ready to Start
Arcade Fire - Wake Up
Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
Arcade Fire - Rebellion (Lies)
Arcade Fire - Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)

Recently I am listening to these 5 songs by Arcade Fire repeatedly. Amazing! In the music video of Ready to Start all the audiences seem to enjoy themselves so much. Wish I am one of them! At the moment, I am listening to The Suburbs.

Be energetic!

IMG_8458
Compared with what I usually pose for photograph, the above pose is much more energetic!

The pleated skirt I am wearing is from Monki and the black Converse sneakers are borrowed from my sister. The skirt looks too lengthy on me so I rolled it up.

That's all.

White, grey, black

Leggings are not pants!

This pair of grey leggings was picked up from H&M a couple of years ago. I seldom wear them as I have no idea how to match them. The only way I can think of is to wear them as pants and match them with white t-shirt. The t-shirt I am wearing here is from Monki. I like the tone of this outfit. And yes, I am contradicting to what I said. But I will not dress like this out. Only for photos!

Indifference

IMG_8019
I went to the Handicraft Fair of JCCAC Festival 2011 held in Shek Kip Mei Factory Estate. It was extremely crowded. I needed to squeeze through the crowd to take a look at the handcrafts. Most of them looked a bit repetitive. I even heard a handcraft artist saying that her creatures were copied out of a book.

Just before I left, I found a cat lying down on a lingzhi mushroom and staying aloof from the event. ( A photo taken by someone called Simon Go. )

Patch and plaid

IMG_7920
This one is the wintry version of this one.

Here I am wearing a sweater, a plaid scarf and a mustache ring all from Monki and brogues from Zara.

Same sweater again! Nevertheless I like how simple it is with the patches at the elbow. I know all my outfits are kinda repetitive, boring and far from being imaginative. But I do not own enough garments, shoes, accessories and so on to allow myself creating something new in every post. That is the problem of making outfit posts.

Cookies and white chocolate

IMG_789811
I am not a sweet tooth and I am not really fond of most of the milk or white chocolate. The Cookies'n'Cream taste of Hershey's Kisses is one of the exceptions. I guess it is because of the cookies bits. The white chocolate is still too sweet for me though.

Anyway, my sister told me the first photo looks like a commercial for Kisses.

A lump of pyrite

A small lump of pyrite.

Don't be fooled by the photos. It is much smaller in the reality. I like how raw and original the ores are. I think I am a bit obsessed with ores. I want to collect more.

Today is the first day of December but December is the last month of 2011. Time flies. It just goes by in a blink. Everything seems to happen so fast.
