Not like usual, I am not going to show you my personal style today, but to introduce you a site that I am in love at the first sight. A site that can help you achieve a New York style home with indulgence - is an e-commerce site that is very taken away from the trend of "fast fashion". Their "limitless essentials" products are being produced with special editions of signature designs on a regular basis. To maintain their high-quality goods with a distinctly urban identity, they are manufactured in the Garment District in New York City. Every item that they produced can be worn in endless ways & endless occasions, and are conceptualised with versatility and utility. 

I have been in love with their products, and here I have chosen 6 items from that I particularly love.

p.s. It's been quite a (LONGGGGG) while for me to write up here, my last update here was in Sept. Sorry for not keeping you all posted, but when you have to work till 9pm almost every night in office, I dare you don't want to turn on your computer at home, but instead getting yourself a nice shower and lie on the bed immediately (by that time it's already 1AM, every one wants to have their beauty sleep). Anyways, since I have just been to Korea last week, I got loads to show you later! If you want more instant updates from me, remember to FOLLOW my Instagram @thetallnshort

THE NORMCORE. Not saying that I am tired of fashionable clothes, but there are always moments that I am rushing to catch my shuttle bus for work, otherwise I am gonna be super late, like going back office at noon, so jeans and tees are my day-to-day best friend. This trend had been categorised as "Chic" by Harper's BAZAAR US #theList a few weeks ago (See the article here). That's part of the reason why I embrace this normcore trend which makes me self-complacent on my day-to-day not-so-suitable working outfit, like what I am wearing in this post. I am proud of this outfit #SorryNotSorry, oops.

FYI. For those who doesn't seem to know what is NORMCORE, here's the newest dictionary meaning:"Normal + Hardcore = Normcore". Normcore (noun) 1. A fashion movement, c. 2014, in which scruffy young urbanites swear off the tired street-style clichés of the last decade — skinny jeans, wallet chains, flannel shirts — in favour of a less-ironic (but still pretty ironic) embrace of bland, suburban anti-fashion attire.

GUCCI PREMIÈRE EAU DE TOILETTE - the everyday fragrance that have a more subtle scent that can freshened up yourself . I feel empowered every time when spraying toilettes on, not to say which brand that I am particularly in love with, but I can ensure you flower blossom/ fruity sweet scents are my all time favourites. 

Back to the topic, as the face of the original Gucci Première Eau de Parfum, Blake Lively, the couture style icon crowned by different magazine publications, reprises her role for this new, softer Eau de Toilette. In the video below, Blake again brings her own brand of feminine strength and assurance to the promotional campaign for this launch. I just simply love her from Gossip Girl, Serena van der Woodsen. Anyways, you can get Gucci Première Eau De Toilette in Sephora. If you wanted to know more about the toilette, click to read more below.

VOGUE SPAIN SEP 2014 "TERRITORIO NEUTRAL". This is one of the editorials that made me want to own all these tops, jackets and minimal accessories into my closet. There are no secrets that I am always in love with the new normcore style, one of the style that is going to be hit according to Harper's BAZAAR US. FYI. Normcore is the unisex fashion trend characterized by unpretentious, average-looking clothing. Here in this editorial, these oversized knits, cashmere blazer, turtlenecks, cocoon coats are almost the basics that you are going to need for this winter, which you think they are normal, but they're actually not if you dare to make a little twist.

GOOD MORNING HONG KONG. I am honored to be the first blogger in Hong Kong to work with IMPREINT (, an artist who painted balloons that represent the differences and imperfection of human. To embrace the art environment, me - the art novice, chose JCCAC - one of the well-known art and craft center, over the famous tourism places in Hong Kong since it’s SUNDAY FUNDAY on the shooting day (oops, it rhymes.). Those tourism places must be super crowded with trolley suitcases around town, where you aren’t able to get a good shoot.

Back to the topic of IMPREINT, I chose a red balloon to pop out from my outfit, and it’s the best color to go with my new denim coat that I am ready to welcome autumn when the mid-autumn festival will arrive a month later.

Here’s a little interview with IMPREINT:

Q: When and where did you start Portraits?
A: On 16 December 2013 in Notting Hill, London.

Q: Why using balloons as the major concept of Portraits?
A: The balloons represent the symbol but it could be anything else. It's the fact to see portraits of people with a common object that makes them united and equal.

Q: How is the concept of Portraits created?
A: When I was painting the 1000 balloons I was continuously thinking and looking at them like people. The paintings evolved into videos and through them I understood the importance of how the same scene could be seen with different prospective through the balloon. During an exhibition in London I decided then to run the project Portraits for one year to continue this conversation with the public.

Q: Which city will be the up next target for the Portraits? Why?
A: Tendency is to don't plan a lot preferring follow the concept, the dream, to evolve in a natural and spontaneous way with the circumstances. Whoever feel something inside himself connected with the project so can participate.
