HAPPY SATURDAY happy campers!!! So… I have finalllly begun the “Thrifted Series!” As I mentioned in my last post, I stumbled across an amaaaaaaaaazinggggg vintage thrift store off the beaten track in Hong Kong… So, now EVERYTHING I shall be wearing, shall be this! I managed to put about 20 or so looks together, and none of them have cost me more than 30 Euros in total… Including shoes… of which are about 80% of that cost! Amazing right! AMAZING! (I say amazing too much!) I’m just outrageously excited about this! I have always been insanely green eyed over the life of a LA fashionista… all those thrift stores, and for so cheap! It’s pretty hard to find that kind of cheapness and amazingness in London and Europe really… Granted there are hundreds of incredible vintage stores, especially around my old stomping grounds of Brick Lane and Shoreditch… BUUUTTTTT, they are soo expensive, and everyman and his dog are already fishing out the good pieces at like 4am, so by the time I was up, there was nout left for Zoey!!!
It was so funny when I dragged my massive heap of finds into the office, the boys were like “This looks like something my mum would wear!!!” I had to explain that this is completely chic in Europe!!!
Anyway, previous LA thirift store strop well and truly over, now you can all be stroppy at me and my insanely large wardrobe full of beautiful things!!! ;)
I had a great time walking home from work last night, I love getting a little bit lost in Hong Kong, just because it’s so safe, I don’t feel any threat, and you see so many interesting things!… the worst thing that can happen over here is people looking at the ""Gwailo" wondering around in some random, smelly backstreet full of crabs and make shift nodle bars! (Gwailo is the Chinese term for white devil by the way! But is used the same way as “Giri” is in Spain… basically tourist… but slightly more racist!!!)
It’s neaarrrly time for China… I was supposed to venture up on Friday, but I still had so many last minute things to get done… Now I am ready, and excited for Monday… And nervous, very nervous as I’m not certain on who my tailor will be! Never mind, got to just go for it now! I’m so so excited to show you the collection! Right… Onto the next outfit! I must pack in the photo shoots while I have my photographer… highly hungover photographer today!!! Hasn’t he done an impressive job considering though!!!
I hope you are having a gorgeous, relaxing Saturday… My updates will be more regular now, what with all my finds I MUST show you! I hope it can inspire you to go out and rummage the stores nobody wants to go into! You never know what you will find! xx
