Jet set & shop ♥


If you knew me well, you'd know I wouldn't leave without a little shopping while I was in Asia! Unfortunately.. I didn't get to shop as much as I wanted because my luggage space limited just that. Oh well, next round? But here are some of my favourite buys from the trip! I got this oversized printed jacket from MODPARADE in Singapore. So glad they had it when I dropped by the store a second time, after I had extended my trip. Such a good piece to work into my basics. The purse and shoes are from Charles & Keith, but in different countries. The purse though, would have to be my absolute favourite. A rich aubergine colour, and gold detailing. Classic. My mom said she has the same purse some 20 years ago. Yep, we sure recycle our trends. I have to say.. Hong Kong had some of the best shopping though. For clutches and souvenirs. And bargaining? The most fun part about shopping there! I think I need to make a trip back there soon. Anyone care to join? ;)


So what has been your personal favourite purchase during a trip? Do share!

Your goodies sure look divine, love those shoes and a handbag.

I LOVEEEE shopping in Asia, it truly is a paradise. Clothes, shoes and accessories are just more affordable and cute in my opinion. I travel to Bangkok yearly with almost empty suitcases and come back with full ones. Work wonder that way. Wish I could bring 10 suitcases!

My favorite would be a set of Elle MacPherson bra from Perth, and at a steal!

I remember my Asia trip, we had to buy an extra luggage just so we can bring all our goodies home. However, by far, my favourite purchase was a Marc by Marc Jacobs purse from Paris. Are you planning your next trip already? :)

When I went to HK, I just bought anything I saw that was nice and ended up not wearing or using most of it. Lol. My favorite purchase was a wallet purchased near Stanley Market though.

@Katy
Haha yeah this trip I didn't buy any clothes from HK for myself. Not my style :P Oh nice! I passed by there actually, but didn't get a chance to really shop. Next time!
