Once upon a time, there was a glorious and vast store in Causeway Bay. Everything, from wonderful gardening tools and rattan ware to good-looking pottery, toys and a wide selection of reusable shopping bags, cost just HK$10. Has it been reincarnated anywhere in Hong Kong? Domo Arigato Gozaimas, Causeway Bay The Dictator rules: I'll see your fairytale and raise you. Once upon a time, there was a shopper who never looked where she was going. She went out shopping for those essential cheap gardening tools and couldn't find the shop. She said ... OK, I'm bored of this. There used to be a few of these stores, including our favourite, the Jusco HK$10 Plaza on Kingston Street. That has since moved to M/F, Wing Tak Mansion, 15 Canal Road West, tel: 2892 1812. How does she do it, you ask? Well, all the outlets are listed at www.jusco.com.hk . The largest we've found is the Jusco HK$10 Plaza Plus in Mong Kok (3/F, Chong Hing Square, 601 Nathan Road, tel: 2388 3171), with a floor area of 13,200 sq ft. It promises more than 12,000 products from Japan, including fashion items such as hair accessories and men's ties. The descriptions are as amusing as the products: 'Ladies can change a new image by wearing sprinkling hair accessories.' Or: 'If you need to be formal everyday, it is a good idea for you to keeping more neckties in your wardrobe for mix and match.' I've been told cat eyes are in. I'm not very make-up savvy and hear the only way to do it properly is with a brush and the stuff in a pot. I have the brushes but where do I get the pot? Eye on Fashion, Hollywood Road The Dictator: Well, aren't you a disaster waiting to happen? This is going to be like leaving a toddler in a room with a can of paint. Make-up artists love Bobbi Brown's Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner (HK$160; shop LG1-60, Festival Walk, Kowloon Tong, tel: 2265 8928), which won In Style magazine's best long-wearing liner award this year. One of the most popular eyeliners of the potted variety is Fluidline by MAC (HK$125; G/F, Sogo, Causeway Bay, tel: 2591 9833). According to www.maccosmetics.com , it 'goes on foolproof with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action'. Hmm. Another advantage is that it comes in many colours, although we'd recommend perfecting the classic look with black before you start to delve into teals or purples. While there, take your pick of any brand's eye-make-up remover - you'll need it. I know you are going to be mean and sarcastic in your answer but where can I find DSquared clothing here in Hong Kong? Yes, I Googled - no good leads except some resales on Alibaba. Canadian Fashionista, Happy Valley The Dictator: Oh, don't be so wimpy. Why would I criticise a valiant effort - made using the wrong name. Nice one. It's Dsquared2. Created in 1994 and designed by Canadian identical twins, Dean and Dan Caten, the label offers streetwear-style clothing that has gone slightly luxe and super sexy. The brand is known for its sultry shapes mixed with rugged style, as seen in its signature super-low-cut jeans. You'll find the women's collection as well as pieces for men at the Dsquared2 shop in Tsim Sha Tsui (shop GW 308, The Gateway, Harbour City, tel: 3188 1310). Select items are also sold at Joyce Boutique. Now, to be fair to you, dearest dim reader, the brand's official website lists store locations but omits Hong Kong.
