HK diary 6 - My shopping haul part 1 (and giveaway)

It's been 2 months since my visit to Hong Kong – and finally I get around to share some of my purchases.

The first is a present from my sister. I was looking for a crossbody bag to us on my days off. It is much easier to have both arms free when I’m taking TLG around town. I have been using a 10-year-old Converse canvas crossbody bag that had seen better days.

I thought I’d find something at Coach but none of the bags I tried on felt right. I was a bit worried that because I have no idea where I should look next.

The next day I went into Marc Jacobs for a browse and came across this.

The Total Turnlock bag from the Marc by Marc Jacobs line ($HK2490, ~$A355) is just what I’m looking for. I like the clean lines, it holds its shape when even when full, and the colour goes well with anything. It is definitely my go-to bag on my non-working days.

The next purchase was an impulse buy. Mr Curious was looking for some casual shoes and I tried on a few pairs whilst waiting for him.


The Merrills Arabesque are so comfortable - I'm very happy with it.

I didn’t buy too much clothes on this trip, however I picked up a few sports tops, the prices are so much better than in Australia. This is a cheeky Nike t-shirt and I agree with the sentiments completely!

I was so close to buying this trench from Zara but the store I visited didn’t have my size. Thankfully I found another trench last week at Ben Sherman.

Earrings are my weakness when it comes to jewellery. I bought these from one of the counters at Sogo Causeway Bay.

I received a few compliments when I wore them so they’re definitely a good buy!

I'm happy to announce the first CCM giveaway.  The prize is a Marc by Marc Jacobs S/S 2010 notebook.  Here's a sneak peek.
