NOCTURNAL #OOTD | STEPHANIE SO


A girl should always be two things: a little classy and a little sassy. For me a bodysuit, mesh top, high-waisted trousers does the trick. With Hong Kong's bipolar weather, layering is essential; it could be cold and windy this second however the next minute it gets warm and humid. Paired with a vintage corduroy jacket and faux fur clutch, this is a perfect nighttime outfit. Oh, and don't forget your red lipstick ladies! It's a game changer!

SINCE 1961 #OOTD | STEPHANIE SO


Old is always gold. During the cold, winter seasons I especially love to wrap up warm in a big, furry, oversized coat and wear a pair of classic, black boots.  Before the Summer waves hit Hong Kong, let's throw it back to the cooler weather and to wearing one of my favorite coats ever. This one is from Topshop and it's made from suede and faux fur.

All-black outfits are always the best. Better when paired with a perfect lip color! This one is MAC's Retro Rouge.

Oh! And I finally tried LAB MADE ice-cream. Scroll down! (Not sponsored, LOL).

65 PEEL | HONG KONG COOLEST BAR | STEPHANIE SO



One simply does not say no to happy hour drinks. A while ago my friend and I ventured into the ever so hipster Peel Street and went into this beer bar, translated into 'so fucking good' in Chinese and boy, let me tell you, it is fucking good. Located in Soho, what 65 Peel/ Ho Lun Jeng offers is not only 12 local brews on tap plus craft beers from Japan, Taiwan, Canada and so forth, but also top-notch bar foods (scroll down!) and extremely cool interiors-- 'industrial chic', shall we say?




Bar foods are always good as their small portions mean that we can try a lot without sacrificing our waistlines. I would say though, I let prettyyyyy full. Here we have the Snow Crab Cake, Lobster roll, Fried chicken and beer flight. I would say that the lobster roll and fried chicken are a must-have and if you are a first-timer at this place, the beer flight is the way to go!




Go give it a try!

ZAHA HADID EXHIBITION IN HONG KONG | "THERE SHOULD BE NO END TO EXPERIMENTATION" | STEPHANIE SO


Yesterday, I mentioned that I recently went to see ZAHA HADID: There Should Be No End To Experimentation, a Zaha Hadid's exhibition in ArtisTree, Hong Kong. In fact, it was only a few days ago that I went to see it. During the course of these 3 days, I have already gone to 4 major art exhibitions in Hong Kong, and I have to say I am well chuffed of myself because I don't think I have ever seen this much art during such a short amount of time in my life, ever before. All these walking totally killed my legs but Art Month only happens once a year and to be frank, it's the only time when art or fashion enthusiasts come out and gather together, so it's all worth it in the end. 






This exhibition is the largest to date, featuring early paintings by Zaha, an architectural pioneer, and visionary. I went into the exhibition speechless and left even more speechless. To be able to see Zaha's work and creative process in real life was truly an amazing experience. I especially loved seeing Zaha's sketchbooks; these first initial creative process felt so raw and personal. Not to mention the VR experience-- it felt like I was living in Zaha's vision and I was absolutely blown away.




This exhibition is free of charge and is opened from Mar 17 - Apr 6, 2017, at Artistree, Taikooplace. The opening hours from now on is 10:00am-21:00pm.

ZAHA #OOTD | GUANGZHOU INSTAGRAM WORTHY SPOT | STEPHANIE SO

 

I recently went to visit ZAHA HADID: There Should Be No End To Experimentation, a Zaha Hadid's exhibition in ArtisTree, Hong Kong. This exhibition is the largest to date, featuring early paintings by Zaha, an architectural pioneer, and visionary. I went into the exhibition speechless and left even more speechless. To be able to see Zaha's work and creative process in real life was truly an amazing experience. However, I will keep this short as I will write more about it in my next blog post.

Anyways, throwing back to last Summer. I visited Guangzhou and of course, I had to go see the Guangzhou Opera House, which is located at the heart of Guangzhou's cultural development. Designed by Zaha Hadid, the opera house is like pebbles in a stream smoothed by erosion, and sits in perfect harmony with its riverside location (influenced by river valleys). The design evolved from the concepts of a natural landscape and the fascinating interplay between architecture and nature; engaging with the principles of erosion, geology, and topography. 

It was a sizzling hot summer over in Guangzhou so I had ice cold boba tea to sip on, whilst my sister and I randomly strolled around and took pictures. And no, I definitely do not miss the heat. I was sweating like there was no tomorrow. I can't actually believe this was half a year ago!
