I have to admit that my outfit was not as on point as I wanted it to be on this day. My floral pants threw it off a bit, but I'm just going with it.
I do really like this cape though. Mom has been really into capes recently because of all the capes that the girl in My Love From The Stars wore (great show by the way, Kim Soo Hyun deserves a honoured mention).

The title of this post is dedicated to the book I just finished reading, "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" by Jonathan Safran Foer. I won't go into an in depth review about it right now, but I will give my brief opinion.

It's confusing at times because I don't know who's point of view the writing is from. It can get boring , but there are also some very worthy and thought provoking bits that I think make the boring bits okay. This book is less about the actual storyline, but the lessons from the storyline.
The ending could have been better, it was quite underwhelming.
I apologise if this made no sense to you. It makes sense in my head, which may not necessarily translate to words.

ORIENTAL DISCLOSURE





All taken by BCHK.

I am wearing Wing Print Jacquard Poly Silk Dress in Burgundy from Shanghai Tang.

If you live in Hong Kong, Shanghai Tang is no mystery. Its most notable existence was the large building on Pedder Street in Central that I not once stepped into until it became Abercrombie & Fitch a few years ago.
Shanghai Tang to pre-teen and toddler Mildred was nothing but an extremely Chinese, oriental store that sold expensive things. Those descriptions are still relevant, but pre-teen Mildred had no interest in Chinese culture. Teenager-almost-adult (haha) Mildred now is very interested in Chinese culture and the fashion. 

It started about a year ago when I bought these two dresses from Zalora. I'm wearing the white and blue one today! Zalora has some very nice Chinese/qipao inspired clothes that I am really considering buying. The only problem is the quality- questionable quality and sizing is slightly weird. But for the price, quite alright I think.

Embrace your culture, kids. Or if you're a TCK (third culture kid, I learnt this in Geography last week *laughing crying emoji*), embrace all your cultures!

Happy Chinese New Year!
