Last Tuesday I was able to meet up with the designer of the dress that I'm wearing, Book of Deer's Eilidh in Hong Kong. It unexpectedly ended up being one of the best days of my travels so far! If you haven't heard of Book of Deer before (somehow I hadn't until Eilidh contacted me and suggested that we meet up), I highly suggest that you go and follow the brand on all of the social media. Not only are Eilidh's designs pretty much the cutest/most adorable of all time, she is also a genuinely lovely and thoughtful person, and manages to run Book of Deer all on her own. Eilidh took me to an independent creative designers space called PMQ, but I honestly didn't end up looking at much while I was there because I was having such a good time chatting to Eilidh about fashion design, blogging, ethical manufacturing, factories and life in Hong Kong and the UK. It made me realise how much I wish I had more real-life friends who were into this whole fashion thing (apart from my bestie Katie, of course!)
When we were parting ways, Eilidh gifted me this super cute dress - how lucky am I?? It was so gorgeous that I had to wear it immediately, even though it was still totally creased from being wrapped up! (p.s. please excuse the grainy phone photos!)
Eilidh told me that she just really wanted to give me a dress & didn't expect me to promote the brand - so this isn't at all a sponsored post! I just genuinely think that Book of Deer is such a cool brand (and this is also a truly gorgeous dress), so I really want everyone to go and check it out!
- I also had to make a little collage of what I think would be the cutest outfit ever (it's bear-themed!) using some of Book of Deer's items:
Today I'm taking myself to Hong Kong's medical science museum, to try and get out of this being-uninterested-in-science-slump that I seem to be in right now. I hope that I'll come back totally reinvigorated about science and also be able to bring you all some interesting facts!
Until next time,
