32 Degrees

In this 32 degree weather, I wore a sweater.

Monki Sweater, Zara Tank and TRF shorts, Necklace from Panjiayuan Market in Beijing

Tell me I'm the smartest person on Earth.

My day was first spent Yumcha-ing with my grandma, then off to meet my boyfriend to go to Ap Lei Chau's outlet/warehouse shopping. My boyfriend has to be the best boyfriend to agree to going there and watching me shop. We went to Horizon Plaza where there's the Lane Crawford Warehouse, Joyce Warehouse, I.T. Outlet, Polo Ralph Lauren Outlet, Armani Outlet and many more. I have to say it wasn't the best idea to go since I'm not a rich bitch and I don't have a high paying job. But nevertheless, I enjoyed digging through racks and racks of clothes and looking at shoes. There were a few Alexander Wang pieces at the LC & Joyce Warehouse for around HK$1000.

Next we headed to the Prada Space Outlet located in South Horizons' Marina Square. This was probably the highlight of the whole Ap Lei Chau trip, as the stuff in the shop was actually a lot newer and nicer than the ones at Horizon Plaza. I feel in love with the black Prada Cervo leather tote with side zippers for around HK$7000. But being poor me, I only got to drool over it. For more details about Outlet shopping in Ap Lei Chau, check out Butterboom's posts here, here and here.

Lastly we sat down for some dinner at Taco Loco in Soho for some good old Mexican, a great change from eating my grandma's food everyday (not that I'm complaining!). And now there's only one day left of the weekend, and it's back to work!

Oh, dropped by Cher2 in Causeway Bay yesterday, a nail polish store which has branches in Central, Causeway Bay and Mongkok. They offer nail polish brands like Essie, OPI, ORLY, China Glaze and Jessica at a lower price.
Got myself Essie's Da Bush (left) and Topless and Barefoot. Can't wait to try them out. Also got myself Revlon's Steel-her Heart a few weeks ago at Sasa. Yay for a 5% student discount!

And lastly, I can't wait for this! I really want all three.

  5. How are the outlets there? I've never been because it's relatively far for me.
    Um I was supposed to meet Denise at Taco Loco the other day when a cockroach crawled over my foot (I was wearing really tall heels too) and I insisted we go somewhere else. lol


  6. Cannot wait to check out the Prada outlet heard really good things about it! Sounds like a perfect day to me Mexican, Yumcha, Ap lei Chau = happy days! Btw my job is in finance so not very glamorous but it does involve a lot of fun travel to Russian and Mongolia :)
