skirt and jumper- DIY, H&M tights, shoes ASOS, bag from mulberry, hat from london

photos by my sister :)

Hi guys!
sorry about wearing the same skirt twice, i'm just obsessed with the softness and how it goes with everything! I made this sweater the other day modeled after the AA mesh sweater (here) using a fabric i found a few weeks ago. My mom said i look like a polar bear, but i like it :) I'm so glad i made one because the one on the website is retailing for 88 US (!!) which is way out of my budget. Isn't it great when you find a fabric and make something that you like? it's like finding something really nice on sale! I've been obsessed with DIY's lately, it's so addictive.

Hong Kong's been getting so cold lately, which is why i decided to take these photos when the sun was out, so i wouldn't catch a cold :) How is it where you guys live?

  11. Ahhh I've been in love with that sweater for a year now and refuse to pay the 88 dollars for it. I'm definitely checking out my local fabric shop to see if they have this fabric! Thanks for the inspiration girl.

  13. Wow, you are amazing at DIYing! I am totally in awe + inspired to go out and buy some velvet now! Do you just make it up as you go along, grabbing inspiration from all over? Or do you follow other DIYs? I'd love to know because I'm currently also obsessed with DIYing haha.
    Love your blog!
