Love Like a Sunset

Photobucket
It's my last day in Hong Kong. The weather finally let up so I was able to sneak in a few photies of my finds. I've been very focused on ticking off the items I wanted off the Hit Lists - and then some =D.

Style wise, this trip has been inspiring. The people here really know how to dress and seamlessly blend the latest trends into something wearable. It's definitely going to push my personal sartorial boundaries. Some of my past fears, like harem pants, crazy prints, and bright colours, have been conquered.

I'm sad to leave but there's also so much to look forward to. The Canucks are starting the first round of the playoffs against the LA Kings, and I've got a surf weekend break soon. I can't wait to try out my new board!

And leaving Asia behind, I've got Europe to look ahead to. Official planning starts when I get home! Any advice please on shopping, eating, staying in Paris, Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Amsterdam is appreciated.

That old school Gucci bag takes me back to rummaging through my Mom's purses :) Love the florals on you! xx

You look great, Liv! I especially love the white jacket... very cool.

I also love that you get so much fashion inspiration from your mom's clothes! I should rummage through my mom's closet, actually...

Can't wait to see all the goodies you bring back... might I recommend a big "top down bed shot" where you dump everything you bought onto the bed and take a photo? ;) Sometimes I find those are very effective, haha.

Either way, you're a terrible influence and I think I'm going to get that Valentino bag after all. *sigh* :)

Oh Liv, this is a perfect summer outfit! I love how you mixed prints (hard to do!). I love vintage GUCCI bags. So classic! And the it's the perfect size for the summer.

I wish I could move to Hong Kong! I love it there!

i love your jacket, sunnies and shoes too. heck I love it all! enjoy HK while it lasts dear muahahaha, if I had to come back from Cabo, you have to come back as well! I'm kidding. you look fabulous though :)

I heard HK had a bit of iffy weather. It's such a shame the pollution seems to be getting worse every year. Cute skirt!

And I've been to all places you mentioned (except Stockholm, though I"m heading there in May). I actually lived in Amsterdam for 2 years and it's a fun place to shop, but severely touristy. In all places,I'd definitley also focus on food, especially Copenhagen, which has some amazing Michelin starred restaurants!

I especially love the heels...

Fantastic summery outfit! I love how you've mixed patterns so successfully here. Hope you had a splendid time in HK and the return to reality wasn't too jarring. :-)
