Phoebe's Peonies Please

I've never seen my London apartment so clean and tidy since I first moved in, it's a shame I didn't get to sit back and enjoy it for long before hoping on the next plane back home. Though I did do a little 360 hands out spin like Maria in The Sound of Music in the center of my flat (hoping the neighbors across didn't see, then again their probably used to it...seriously). Nothing's changed much back here in Hong Kong (mind you I was here during April for a bit), the usual summer heat is surprisingly invigorating considering how much I hate hot weather as it leads to profuse sweating, but keep in mind I AM typing all this in my air-coned room with just the right amount of the sunny blue sky reflecting glare onto my screen. I know it's passed midsummer's day, but on that very special day, I did celebrate and decide to toss on something rather "festive and fitting" and popped by the inner circles of Regent's Park. Little bird told me all about how lush it was over there, where all the pruned flowers have now kicked into full blossom mode. So catching a rare glimpse of sunlight even at 7pm (love those long summery days), I frolicked amongst the flower beds with glee as the foreign pedestrians continue to pass judgement to my odd antics. You would think that with all the weird dressers and 'fashion freaks' spawning all over London that the locals would be at least somewhat jaded to their quirky get ups, but no... Maybe we could start charging our looks as a spectacle like those street performers in Convent Garden, you know.. The silver tin man, Captain Jack Sparrow, those guys where you snap a pic of them with your iphone and don't pay them? Yep those unfortunate fellows...

  1. Bloody Hell you got the trousers AND the jacket?? Nice. I wish I could fit into more womenswear but I guess my body is too...manly?? That doesn't sound right.

    P.S. I saw loads of guys in Paris wearing denim shirts with jackets/printed jackets - clearly you're "on trend" as they say!

    1. there's definitely the upside to your body type, u're so tall that you carry lots of looks so much better than most people, plus u can really work tailored looks to perfection with ur frame.

      i didnt try to be 'on trend' nor did i hear about this trend till u told me haha, i simply chose the denim shirt for its blue tone that is repeated in some of the smaller peony flower prints ;) plus it added just the right amount of texture and casualness to the look i think -

    2. I guess the grass is always greener...

      I like the hi/lo combo although I almost never wear denim myself. I'd probably wear them with a plain white t.

  2. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. It's definitely true, it's up to each person to bring there own modern interpretation to the latest trends.

    Those are some of the pants I've ever seen. You really do just blend in with your surroundings.

  5. Great pics! I'm not a huge fan of floral, but this post is helping to change my mind. Being petite, I'm unabe to pull off anything too bold, so instead I prefer a liberty print. Here, you look AMAZING! Thanks for stopping by my blog by the way.

    1. aww thanks im glad this made u rethink about florals. but i do agree that not all floral prints work, some do look surprisingly tacky...bad grandma curtains i presume? lol

  6. I wear bold floral stuff too, more colorful when I was "young" and more subtle color now. They look fine on you, though I rarely see guys in such bold floral suit. The denim shirt tones it down well and blends well too. The outfit does have the shocking effect, so be prepared when people gaze. They look because they have not seen it that often, even im a fashion city like London! You blend well with amongst the peonies. good pics on them too.
