It's shocking how it's already the middle of the first week of 2011! Admittedly, I'm still in a bit of a holiday mood but that should shake off by next week.
Proud to say that I didn't shop much in Hong Kong except for two pairs of shoes (1 was a gift) and another LBD and some house stuff.
I still like Hong Kong but I think the appeal for me has faded a little. Too cluttered and the vibe makes me feel as though I'm in China and food seemed pricier - or we ate at the wrong places though our friends who brought us out for meals have lived there for almost a decade and even B.T who used to live there finds it more expensive.
Anyway, the trip was relaxing so the aim was achieved so I'm back to regular programming till I start my 2011 travels which might kick off earlier than I'd like it to -_-
Got my first pair of Lanvin flats at 50% off so it was quite sweet and as some friends have mentioned, it is comfy. Strangely though, my slightly smaller right foot is experiencing some biting at the back of the heel.
Since most of my pants don't fit and I decided that it wasn't worth altering the sizing, I've been on the lookout for a well fitted cut-off pant. Had my eye on the ones from Gap but my sizing has to be pre-ordered and it takes a few months!
On my last trip to Portland, I finally found a pair that fits at JCrew. It was on a discount too :) Score! It's flat front with a side zip and made of a slightly stiff but comfy material. A belt loop is available which is great since some don't have that.
I love the fit and it's not so tight that can't eat more at lunch! I can wear it slightly cuffed up or full length and it goes well with flats or heels. I've learnt something about jeans and pants - don't get it too loose but fitted as most expand or stretch a little once you wear it!
Meanwhile, I'm enjoying my T by AWang cardi which is not exactly a cardi as it's a lot heavier and warmer and fairly thick! Great alternative to a jacket though :)
