2% x miffy collection for day 3 of My Own Fashion Week Hong Kong! 2% is one of the uniquely “Hong Kong” brands that I never fail to visit – they have a wonderful selection of brands that cater to different tastes, but you can also mix and match all their items to create interesting coordinates that perfectly reflect 2%’s classic but playful personality.
2% has been getting Lena Fuji to model for them for quite a while now (I think the first time I saw her pictures in the store was about 2007 or 2008). Being such a huge fan of her, I wanted a 2% x miffy top of my own! The brand came out with a series of photos of her wearing giant miffy ears, and super adorable short shorts with a giant ball of fluff (resembling a bunny tail) attached to it. Who wouldn’t say no to that? Anything that Lena models is sure to be a huge hit, I’m sure. This 2% x miffy collaboration was no exception.
The search for the perfect 2% x miffy item was on. I scoured the racks for something that explicitly showed miffy, but also something that didn’t look too much like a normal graphic tee. And voila, this one popped right up once I set my mind on finding the safest choice – black and white… aka MY COMFORT ZONE. This particular piece of cuteness came in the form of a flattering loose-fit shoulder-slit top with a print that was just so me.
So I paired it with a classy pair of gold sequin shorts, one of my favorite purchases from my Kuala Lumpur trip last 2011. Thanks to Bobo for wearing the exact same design during our short (no pun intended) date back then – I was completely sold. She wore it with a sheer black top and a classic black blazer. Nothing like a little sparkle to put a little magic into an outfit, yeah? Paired the shorts with a gold satchel to keep the whole “casual with a glam twist” look on a roll.
My boyfriend and I instantly fell in love with the quality of the sun the time we took these pictures. MAGIC HOUR.
It’s been such a refreshing change to have him help me take my outfit photos recently, and to pretty much just have outdoor shots that I honestly prefer more than my normal self-taken studio shots. It feels quite nostalgic since I used to take a lot of outdoor outfit shots when I first started this blog. Wish I could have him around all the time so I can regularly post beautiful quality photos like these on my blog! You might want to visit his personal blog to see more of the stuff he likes, other than me TROLOLOLOLOL
Stay tuned for my next MOFW post tomorrow! Also, advanced happy 20th birthday to my baby brother Calel!
