I finally got an interview lined up! So I had to buy a new suit. (Ok, maybe I don’t need to, but my old ones are… old. Whatever!)
As a fresh (read: poor) graduate, my choice are rather limited to…
- G2000: G2000 is a cheap local chain store that sells executive wear, available almost everywhere. A full suit (jacket + dress + pants + shirt) would probably add up to nearly HKD1000. This is where I got my first suit, which I found to be too plain. I find the cutting to be rather masculine. (No curves at all.)
- H&M: I had a suit from them, but am not sure about their choice of fabric – a bit too un-conservative. But I love the variety of tops in H&M.
- Mastina!: Mastina is local Hong Kong brand that sells smart casual and executive wear for female. This is where I got my new suit, and I really love them! It is a bit pricier without sale, but could be reaaaally cheap when on sale (which seems to be most of the time actually…) I got a jacket + shirt + pants for only HKD500! The suits have a feminine cutting that really suits the Asian female body type.
I always thought I didn’t look at home in a suit, but I finally found a perfect one! That is, until I get fatter… MEH! YAY to Mastina! :)
