Up in the SKYE@Pullman :: Monochrome Outfit + Leather MulesHappy Sunday everyone,
Have you ever had the trouble of wondering what to wear when headed out for dinner? At the back of my mind, I always pre-plan my outfit in preparation for going out so that I would not need to fuss, rush and stress especially when I am running tight on timing. Of course, having advance knowledge of the venue would help for you to consider the direction of your outfit e.g lace, sexy, casual, elegant etc...
Issue is, often than not, most of the outfits I plan to wear would end up somehow not looking right for the occasion once I put it on, or there would be some " technical glitches" i.e a white jumpsuit which ended up too transparent and I really don't have an inner camisole for a white jumpsuit ( seriously how do you find a romper-style camisole with long enough leg length to run through the length of the jumpsuit pants? So here I am on Friday, heading out to a recently launched rooftop bar called SKYE @ the Pullman hotel. Unfortunately I have yet to purchase a small hand held dslr camera that could fit in my clutch and lugging a huge dslr camera would be such a bother, hence ended up with iphone pics. Hope you don't mind.
A nice entry at the lift lobby, club music playing over the central speakers and 3 lovely hostesses waiting patiently at the entrance to greet guests and escort them out to their tables.
It was a crowded evening at the bar and as I did not feel comfortable to impose and inconvenience any of their guests, hence here's a quick shot of the view at the bar, overlooking most of Causeway Bay and across the Victoria Harbour to Kowloon.
After our first drink outside with lovely crispy whitebait and nuts for bar snacks, we were escorted back into the main dining area where the ambience was quieter more elegant than chic.
Still with a great view behind us, we indulged in the fusion contemporary fine dining food. A little over priced for the portions served, and although the rooftop bar was certainly a place we would return again, I will be honest to say that I am not too sure about the restaurant. Somehow the evening left me a little disappointed in terms of flavour and portioning as far as food is concern. As with most things, less is more and sometimes too many over powering flavours just clash and don't work well for the dish. However the bar as a venue I would most certainly highly recommend.
So back to the outfit for the evening. I finally decided ( after 5 changes of outfits) to pull together old favourites once again to get through the evening. Paired this lovely off shoulder white top with a very old ZARA stretchy pants. You can check out my other post featuring this top here.
This long neck tie accessory is actually a belt from the white jumpsuit which I had to give up trying to style for the evening. Kept the whole look on the monochromatic colour tone and since it was a " Chanel" night so to speak, paired Chanel accessories to complete the look. Check out my other post pairing Chanel accessories here.
Loving the backdrop of suitcases behind the Concierge desk of the Pullman Hotel, I had to take a couple of shots in this location. ( psst... can you spot the Concierge Porters in the picture? Cool uniform don't you think)
My favourite BCBG Maxazria Plisse Watch still rules the day. Given it's a discontinued style, I am certainly holding on to this beauty - hopefully it'll be a vintage watch or collector's item someday.
For a slight pop of colour to the outfit, pulled out my Zara leather mules in mauve hue to pair with the look.
