I like here how the city's lights reflect the colors in my outfit...

Two of the key pieces - the chartreuse hooded cardigan and the orange overalls - were market finds when I was in Hong Kong. They have an area called Sham Shui Po where you can buy wholesale garments, one size only, as well as browse for fabrics and trims. My mom picked me up the faux fur H&M jacket secondhand and I was ummming and ahhhing initially, thinking it looked too hipster but it actually looks pretty gangsta on and is super warm, just like the heat-tech leggings she also picked-up from Uniqlo! I did a wee modeling job for a vintage clothing brand so scored this patterned shirt, then was handed down the gold metal mesh strap "family heirloom", which is a belt? I don't know what it's for but it leaves room for experimenting! A friend off-loaded the H&M onto me then and I picked up the orange bandana on the corner of St Mark's Place, NY.

So pretty much this is a bangin' bargain outfit! It's how you wear it, after all.
