The Big Chill: Winter wear in Hong Kong

Let me preface this post with a few tidbits of information. First, Hong Kong has humidity like I've never experienced anywhere else. Not even in Malaysia, where I grew up. Second, Hong Kong buildings are made of concrete to withstand said humidity.  In Winter, we have condensation on the inside of the windows because of poor insulation. In Spring, the walls and floors sweat on the outside.

What this all means is when it's cold outside, it's cold inside.  Oh, and did I mention that we don't have central heating?  When I woke up this morning, shivering in my bed, it was a mere two degrees Celsius outside. That's 35 degrees Fahrenheit peeps, and a record cold temperature for Hong Kong. Needless to say, we haven't ventured far today.

Yesterday it was a balmy 8 degrees out, so a couple of girlfriends and I decided to head into the city to check out the Terry Richardson photo exhibition on at Galerie Perrotin.

It seemed like the perfect occasion to take out my vintage fur coat for a legit wear (remember when I first posted about it on here back in August? Boy, we were roasting on that day). I was really glad to have it to keep me toasty warm.  Today, however, this outfit simply wouldn't cut it.  Today is a too-cold-to-look-fashionable kind of day.


Thanks Dress Me Blog Me for the pictures.

OMG yes I heard about the extreme cold! GLOBAL WARMING GODDAMNIT! I hope you're keeping toasty! It's actually 13 degree C today in London and that's just crazy to think that it's warmer than Hong Kong!! Good thing you have some lovely fur though xxx
