It’s certainly hot and humid in HK. It’s funny, when I use to live in England, as an English person you tend to talk about the weather a lot. Living in HK that hasn’t escaped me. But the comments are more “oh there’s a T8 coming” (T8 is a typhoon warning, usually means everyone has to stay at home and not go to work, yay! Oh wait I mostly work from home…).
I won a cash voucher from a site called Yes. No. Maybe. So they let me pick an item from their online store that came with a free gift of a scarf (once you sign up for their newsletter). One outfit that instantly grabbed my attention was this Venetian Print dress. The dress arrived within a week and I couldn’t wait to share with you this pretty thing.
The cool thing about the dress is that it has a double layer so it looks a little 3D. It’s not see-through which is awesome, so no worries about wearing black underwear and having it showing through.
The size I ordered was Size S due to the measurements they gave on the site. The fit isn’t bad as I can move easily (you’ll see in the pics below when I’m jumping!). There is a zipper on the side to makes it easier to put on. The only gripe I have is that the arm holes are little tight, but I don’t think that’s to do with the size chosen, but rather the fit of the dress. Maybe I can adjust them a bit?
I also got myself (finally!) some lace up flats after lusting over them so long all over Instagram. I had seen quite a few including the originals from Aquazzura, which is a little out of my price range. So a good alternative came from Zalora with Rubi – Williams Point. You could also make you’re own, a good how to here: DIY Lace Up Ballet Flats.
The back is equally as pretty as the front, the print I can only explain as a Venetian goddess.
I told you I would jump! I should also mention this was the first time using my new Canon infrared remote which makes it a lot easier to take self portraits, no more running back and forth between takes.
As always very easy to order from Zalora. There came in a few days and were very well protected. I have order from them a few times now and no issues with delivery. Always order cash on delivery which is always super convenient. You can see my first review about them and about their pop-up store.
Quite comfortable, I still wish I ordered them in blue also! Rubi is actually sold at Cotton On but everytime I’ve been there I haven’t seen these in the HK stores. So it was a good alternative to order them online. New to Zalora (also called The Iconic)? Get a 15% discount with my code: BAPQW7N
