While saying goodbye to certain people is sad I am getting super excited to finally leave. I've been planning this for an entire year after all. It needs to become reality now. And seriously if not Hong Kong something else just needed to happen as soon as possible. My friends and I finished college weeks ago and we're just hanging around and it's getting ridiculous. I am a tiny bit afraid that I will have trouble finding my way back into a regular work pace getting up early, doing serious, important stuff for at least 8 hours and repeating that five days in a row. This is definately not what our lives looked like the last months to say the least.
Today's outfit is dominated by pepita which is a pattern created by a certain way of weaving. I remember how we had to figure out how to do it in our textile engineering class but I seriously don't get it together anymore (so much about last minute studying and forgetting right after the exam). Today you'll find that pepita is often times printed on the fabric rather than actually woven. As for my coat and blouse the old-fashioned method is still used though. The blouse's cut is very feminine with slim arms and bust and getting wider to the hips. The coat has an oversized feel to it which is very en vogue at the moment. One might say that wearing two pepita pieces together is too much but I wanted to make a statement here and I like how they mesh with each other.
I'll have one more outfit for you from Germany next week and then I'll hopefully write from Hong Kong. Yay!
