I brought my mom on a short 4-day trip to Hong Kong a couple of weeks ago and I decided I’d try something I hadn’t before: Style the same Grana tank top in different ways everyday. (Mind you, I did make sure it was 100% clean before I wore it each time!)

I’ve been a huge admirer of Grana since discovering about them on Instagram and checking them out at their pop-up in Singapore, and I love what they do. They create basics and your everyday staples with the best quality silk, denim, cotton etc sourced from all across the world. Their outlook on the world is tremendously positive and upbeat and I just can’t be kept away.

Day One: After breakfast and shopping, I popped by Grana‘s first physical store on Hollywood Road. It’s aptly named The Fitting Room and was a few days shy of its official launch party, which I sadly had to miss! The offline-to-online buying process means you can freely try on the pieces and sizes that tickle your fancy, make a purchase online via their iMacs and await the arrival of your item at your doorstep. This way you’ll definitely have the best fit without the hassle of an exchange or refund otherwise.

Day Two: I left my aunt and mom to their own fun and skipped off to explore the Central and Sheung Wan area for some cafe-hopping and people-watching. Maybe I’m just a big ol’ hipster deep down, but I cannot emphasize how much I adore these two areas. The atmosphere is trendy and upbeat and I feel inspired through and through when I walk along the lanes. Perhaps it’s the wonderful innovations and whimsical finds like this one.

I’d known about Munchies through, once again, the holy grail that is Instagram and told myself: Gurl you gotta get sumaddat. After lunch at a handmade fishball noodle joint, I embarked on dessert almost-immediately. They were running low on options when I arrived, so I picked up this combination of Earl Grey ice-cream sandwiched between two halves of a Hibiscus-glazed donut.

Day Three: How much are we lovin’ this Marimekko-inspired skirt from my favorite thrift store Me & Gee? The store along the Ladies Market in Mongkok now has a smaller and equally awesome unit next door, which means I spent wayyyy longer combing the racks on this trip. This skirt was such a steal – only SGD8.

So that’s a quick little insight on how I’d usually style a simple tank top like this one. This Chinese silk number comes in many different colors. I, of course, had to opt for the brightest one. It should come as no surprise that a hue as stunning as this fits perfectly into my wardrobe :>

How would you wear your Grana silk tank?
