THE SWAY NYC LEATHER JACKET This is one of my new favourite jackets, upcycled from excess leathers sourced from motorcycle accessory manufacturers.

TWENTY8TWELVE DRESS From one of the brand's first collections in 2007. I like the pockets and it's really comfortable. I can't wear a girly dress on its own, I have to balance it with boots or a chunky jacket.

RUSSELL & BROMLEY BOOTS I bought these in London back in 2008 when they were the "it" boot - Sienna Miller used to have a pair; they're perfect and beaten up.

STONE STATUE We went to Sai Kung to buy plants to make our home feel less like we are living in a concrete jungle and we saw this statue and thought he would look quite cool.

Casual shades and bracelets.







A Topshop skirt with pockets, with a clutch handmade in Brooklyn from repurposed leather, and a watch her father gave her husband.





Blue boots from My Gallery in Central were locally designed and made in the New Territories.

A Hermès bracelet that was an 18th birthday present and her grandmother's vintage ring.







A Partimi top teamed with closet staple leather skirt from Zara.







Some comfy Marc Jacobs boots that have survived seven years.
