I do have a tendency to over-elaborate on how I get my street style shots. Chortle.
Below: some shots of graffiti in Central, Hong Kong that I thought were pretty cool.

In other news, I chanced upon these eccentric sunglasses designs the other day in a recent Hong Kong sunglasses trade show magazine. I especially like the Eiffel tower and Kiss inspired designs.
Below: I love the notion of eye wear as an "eye dress". Note to geeks everywhere, rock those eye dresses with pride! (Unless you're a boy: calling them eye dresses may make everything infinitely worse).

|More detail of the base of the tower|
|Even Paris' underground catacombs were represented at the show. It must have been a challenge to try to figure what kind of flowers to put in this display!|
|An art gallery such as you might find in Montmartre.|
|All kinds of food was available at kiosks along the outskirts of the exhibit floor. We had a wrap like this. Ours was called "The Parisian."|
|These hanging flower displays remind me of kites.|
|Here's a very lush outdoor bistro where you must stop to have a glass of wine and perhaps some fromage?|
|Isn't Paris grand?|
|Pretty pink azalea, one of my favorites.|
|This pastry shop needs more sweets in the window, don't you think? But it's all about the flowers at the flower show.|
|This reminds me of the kind of floral arrangements you might find in the lobby of a five-star hotel.|
|More flowers as you might find along a walk in the park|
|Another piece of stage setting like the pastry shop - this time a parfumerie. While at the flower show I had the pleasure to try on some vintage French perfume at one of the vendor booths.|
|Isn't this beautiful?|

The Chinese lady behind the counter and facilitator to my holga substance abuse problem immediately recognised a holga addict when she saw me approaching. " 'Sup" quothed she, swinging her bowl cut in a manner that suggests a strong case of Bieber fever . I was all " 'Bout it 'bout it" as I gave her my rolls of film (rolls of film! How antiquated). Gleefully catching sight of her key-design ring, I immediately wondered what would be the least awkward way to ask her if I could photograph it (a blogger's occupational hazard). She kindly acquiesced. And so behold bowl-hair lady's awesome accessory. (I wish I had taken her snapshot actually, her hair was pretty cute). And yes, the above photo was posed. Chortle.

My new favorite word of the moment. Clusterfuck. Learnt it from watching Kell on Earth, an awesome show about Kelly Cutrone and her New York based fashion PR company. If you are curious about fashion PR, watch it. I implore you.
A rather varied series of blog posts, slightly overdue. Due to unforeseen technical difficulties (laptop cable broke. I got it in Beijing. “Fool!!” I hear you cry. Shyeah. But that’s what you get for anything electrical under 100 RMB. Bygones.) And been rather busy of late kicking netball ass, working, visiting factories. Finding out that I am a youtube star (See around the 2.05 mark. Little girl with blonde curls. Getting knocked over by a model airplane twice her size. No jokes, c'est moi).
Here are random snaps, mainly street style, from when I have been out and about..
