Vintage composition

Some color combinations were made for each other.  They become staples in a wardrobe, or at least they do in mine. 


One such combination is navy and yellow (in particular this mustardy shade of yellow).


Having found this pair of linen pants in Stanley Market for just $40 HKD, I knew they'd quickly become a go-to piece for me.  And it helps that they were a steal.


The problem with some of the little shops where you can get these kind of bargains is that customers aren't allowed to try the garments on (or at least not the ones marked way down like this).


Luckily for me, I learned a nifty thrifting tip from the lovely Thierry Chow back when I met her a few years ago at her Nappahead booth at Island East Markets.  If you take the waist of the pants and you can fit them around your neck (meaning the waist is doubled over), they will certainly fit your waist.


It's worked for me every single time.

Outfit details: Vintage blazer from Etsy, Polka dot blouse from Fancy Treehouse, Linen pants from Stanley Market, Estate sale earrings and Oroton HK necklace
