Day 6 manchester


fyi I found a full length mirror in the "toilet" at my school (which is a floor below me) so now I come here every morning to use the nice big washroom (as oppose to the tiny little thing in my dorm without a sink!), find out if my top matches my bottom.  & refill my water bottle at the water fountain, I can't get use to drinking the tap water here... This might be a slightly weird thing to do on Weekends because the whole school is vacant! 

I haven't explored much of Manchester yet but I'm enjoying everything:) 
I can't wait to go shopping! Running out of clothes already. 
So far I've gone to a foam party at MMUnion, Missoula and ASDA (an Uk Walmart)
I have already finished 2 assignments + 1 presentation and first day of school is Tuesday!


p.s. I did a commercial a while back with my mom and dad! Here it is! Took us about six hours to make 30 seconds. It's airing on Fair Chid TV every night, but I realize none of my friends watch that channel! It's in Cantonese, basically I play the excited senior girl who got accepted to university and my parents actually prepared a condo for me.

Day 2 in Manchester (but now I pronounce it as Manchest-ah!)
 Outfit: Mexx necklace, Marc Jacob earrings, H&M oversized sweater, vintage belt

and whose been following Paris Fashion Week?
Sofia Coppola designed this for PFW window display, how intriguing. 
 is fashion revolved around innovation?
is everything?

I can't believe it! I'm finally here! 
I'm so excited to share my next seven months with you as an UK student studying Fashion Practices at Manchester Metropolitan University!

I think I lucked out and got an amazing room overlooking a patio rooftop, I also never have been in residence so I wonder how I'll like it. Can't wait to explore some more tomorrow. 


p.s. These photos are brought to you by my sweet boyfriend who got me a hot pink canon point and shoot and hid it in my carry on.

Another Fashion show under my belt :)

I sponsored ten outfits for ten beautiful models. 
Ten hair stylists and ten make up artists competing for the best hair/ best makeup and the best overall look. 

I had such a blast working with the whole team and was definitely worth leaving the cottage early haha!
Since I'm leaving the country for a year to study abroad, I thought I'll sew my little heart out before I don't have a chance! I made this draped top while watching Project Runway Australia!

and I've been staring at this amazing nautical print cotton and finally decided on this design, I used exactly all 2 meter of it! I love how it turned out:)
and then I made it in a wool blend...
How much faster it is to make a dress with patterns already made!

and Then my boyfriends brought me to the most amazing little Japanese restaurant: Jabistro
Also went to TIFF! Watched Prisoners and Therese, loved both of them. 
Q& A with Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Felton, Jessica Lange and Charlie Stratton the director
And Baby Steinberg's wedding! How beautiful is her million layered dress?
I felt so honoured to have attended to cozy Queens West wedding, can't believe two years have gone by since I interned for her

How awesome are these Revlon sticker nails? $3 at CNE. How great is Toronto?

outfit post! Purse from Aldo Paris, Shorts from Texas, New crop Sweater from the Showroom (Cheap Monday) 
my shoes and I bid you farewell !
