Cat Print and Vintage

Posted on: 20 July 2012

MCM red jacket outfit
Jacket - H&M, Dress - Argyle Centre, HK, Bag - MCM, Boots - Topshop
Sometimes the cheapest things in your wardrobe become your staples and this dress is one of those! It was a super cheap buy in Hong Kong (around £8 I think!) and features these strange looking cats all over it and little peter pan collar. Despite not really being a cat person, it's become a firm favourite. Though given the price, I don't expect the dress to have a long life span which is always the way with the clothes I buy in HK. HK has a shopping culture of luxury or cheap and I tend to sway towards the latter, which suits me just fine as you can find some lovely things if you look around.
Cat Print
Topshop boots
I still can't believe I haven't had the chance to wear sandals yet so tights and boots are very much still on the agenda. I've heard it's meant to be much nicer next week so fingers crossed I can wear more summery clothes soon! Red jacket MCM Bag
Here is another close up of my vintage MCM bag, which was such an awesome hand-me-down from my aunt. I love the monogrammed leather and it's cute size but that comes at a price! It simply functions only as a camera bag and another bag is definitely needed for all the rest of my junk that I like to carry around. 
MCM details My favourite detail is the stamp inside the bag. I can't work out who it's actually designed by though, the writing is too hard to make out! Any body have any guesses on what the signature says?

  21. you look super cute, winnie o/ I'm definately a cat person, so this dress is a winner! as I only buy cheap stuff I couldn't agree with you more. the mcm bag is lovely, you're a lucky girl! all my relatives threw away their awesome vintage stuff a long time ago :/

  22. Same- a lot of my staple pieces are the cheap things I get and often wear over and over again. That white blazer I've had for over 6 years which I got from Island Beverly after some intense bargaining (when I was young I wasn't ashamed.. ho ho ho).


    Good to see you are still talking about HK ^^
