Or at least it was last Friday. Let's pretend that doesn't matter and that the 'birthday boy gets to do whatever he wants' rule is still valid. It's strange that I haven't spent my birthday in Hong Kong since I was 10yrs old (studying abroad has its sacrifices). And so, in order to make it more special, I decided to visit a few special spots. Finally made it to Sevva for lunch where I tried a few signature dishes and even tried the famous Marie Antoinette cake. The cake was a pistachio cream chiffon cake made with rose petals, raspberries, mango & mocha macarons topped with a huge candy floss. After a very filling lunch, I really wanted to go for a walk around the Kowloon harbourfront but it started pouring so I decided to walk about Central and Elements to shop for something special for my birthday. I've always been a fan of Givenchy and their t-shirts but never actually got a formal long-sleeved shirt. A thing I always do after looking out for inspiration whether on tumblr, street-style, shopping (anywhere and anything really), I try to picture these clothes on myself and piece them together in my head to what I think would look good. Somehow I had this image of this Givenchy white stars & stripes t-shirt, which I previously saw from browsing around the web, and thought it'd look great with a black jacket/ suit. And it worked. The shirt comes in two different colours (black and white) but I settled for white in the end as I thought all-black is too much for this outfit. I'm not one for buttoning up shirts right to the top button, purely because I think it looks plain awkward on me and I feel as if I'm paying to strangle myself, but this worked for me and I decided to buy a size up for the oversized fit and for comfort (they didn't have any sizes smaller anyways). Probably one of the most expensive white shirts I've ever bought. But it's a classic so it's worth it.
