Today was one of those days where mood came before comfort.
Not to say that I wasn’t comfortable, but it’s not quite the same as throwing a soft knit over a bralette and leggings.

I paired a sheer balloon sleeve top (hauled from the streets of MongKok) with a black leather bustier (Dynamite) underneath with some dark grey-blue jeans (Garage) and the ever-present ankle booties.

Some days call for both parts of us to be out and about in full force. We all need some toughness and tenderness in our living.

Also introducing for the first time my early birthday present…

a Daniel Wellington Classy Cardiff with a 26mm watch face in rose gold, Swarovski crystals and brown-grey leather strap.

I love the sleek sheen and clean look it has on my wrist. I’ve been hunting for a good watch for the longest time and it was pretty much love at first sight.
