Two things I had with me always in Hong Kong this trip - my Hayden Harnett's Toulouse Weekender (in Petit Points Amber print), and my Converse double-layer (grey/black) high-tops . The Converse high-tops (thank you Alice!) might seem to contrast with my usual style, but I am not going through another wrecking-of-black-leather-flats-debacle like I did in last Christmas. Hong Kong walking can cause a lot of stress on your shoes. I probably should have taken these pictures before I used them and added so much "character" (dirt and distress) to them.
The Hayden Harnett bag I love dearly. It is sturdy, with a soft and spring-like print to it. It's part of the Paule Marrot Voyage collection. Paule Marrot is a great print designer, and my bag has both the Paule Marrot and Hayden Harnett loveliness to it.
I had my laptop and magazines in the trusty bag during my flight, and took it around Hong Kong when I did fabric shopping. I probably stuck out like a sore thumb, since my oversize bag basically screamed "TOURIST", but that is still better than carrying ten plastic bags of fabric!
