I happened across this shop when walking near my hotel, and what a find!  These are the kinds of shops I really cherish…full of traditional handmade products, items of days gone by.  It does not have the ambience of the boutiques I highlighted in Sayulita, but there are little treasures to be found nonetheless. Also, I love to feel like I am discovering something special, it’s the hunter in me.  🙂  I bought a dress, handkerchief, and some small embroidered gifts…definitely could have bought more!

Many young guys in HK have trendy taste in haircuts & pants…I love it!

What I love about Hong Kongers is their individual style…they follow the trends, but also put their own unique spin on it.

Many outfits I would never wear, but I appreciate the thought they put into their look.

These bunny ears were everywhere….thank you Marc Jacobs!

This example was attached to a headband, but I also saw some more loosely translated versions…a piece of fabric with a wire inside. Wrap around the head, twist a couple of times, and leave the ends up in the air. Voila! bunny ears!
