Chino's on another dreary polluted day in Hong Kong

Such a shame this beautiful place looks like this so often nowadays.

All J.Crew except for the trousers which are Vince (see post below for link).
I should make I LOVE FASHION a dedicated J.Crew website, because I seem to wear not much else.
I assure you I am not getting paid, J.Crew just makes clothes that perfectly fit my life - reasonable prices, nice quality and easy to wear with everything else.

For The Love of Chinos

√Čtoile Isabel Marant jacket
Shoes, Trousers, Shell, all J.Crew
 Belt, Hugo Boss

I've developed a renewed obsession with chinos, at a time when you can hardly buy them anymore. Although I did find an awesome pair HERE this morning, they look a tiny bit more polished than the also lovely J.Crew pair above.

Winter is done and dusted in Hong Kong's shop windows

This cute dress makes me want to be very young, tall, thin, and rich. 
Find it HERE.
If this one is not for you either, don't worry, spring will bring lots of stripes, like this gorgeous J.W.Anderson skirt, or this fun Lemlem outfit, or this REDValentino short jumpsuit, or this Caroline Costas shirt, or this Rebecca Vallance dress.

Chanel Cuba Cruise Lace Ups

There is also a slip on version of the gold ones.

My sneakers saved my dress

very old Phillip Lim dress, box fresh Raf Simons for Adidas sneakers

This Phillip Lim drapey T-shirt dress was one of my early Lane Crawford purchases after I moved to Hong Kong.  The shoulder detail dressed up the easy wearing cotton, and the loose shape allowed for a bit of muffin top.  But I wore it so much that I got sick of it.  Then the other day I picked up some Adidas at the Lane Crawford sale and thought of the dress.

Gucci at Elements in Hong Kong

I can't get enough of Alessandro Michele's Gucci.

The men's outfit in this display is my favorite. The sales girl assured me the men's size would fit me beautifully...  but then it didn't.

I am starting 5:2 this morning. 

Desperately need to shift the spare potato tire around my waist. There is a combination of mashed, roasted, and deep fried dipped in mayonnaise in there. A squishy fanny pack made of Idaho baking potatoes.

My Current Elliott boyfriend jeans have turned into skinny jeans.

A deep breath popped a critical button on my most reliable white J.Crew shirt, while I was wearing a ten-year old industrial granny bra. 
In public.

Blueberries for breakfast.

Enjoy your Mondays everyone.

Why not try a pantsuit on for size

J.Crew jacket and trousers
Saint James T-shirt
Gucci sneakers

The Women's March on Washington is on January 20, and I am symbolically standing by my fellow sex in a proper pantsuit. It feels quite serious to wear matching trousers. The wool fabric on the J.Crew suit is so soft, I had to check the label to see if it was cashmere. It's not, but the quality of the wool is outstanding. I have left the trousers a tiny bit on the long side, so they hang slouchily on my sneakers.

Find out how to join the march HERE.
