I left my room in tights, ankle boots and a turtleneck to walk around Yong Kang street, on the look out for a delicious bowl of steaming hot beef noodles soup. Taipei quickly turned up the heat and I soon found myself hiding behind some trees quickly rolling down my tights and ended up trading the hot meal for a shaved mango ice from Smoothie House. Oh maan, how can I begin to explain the delicious goodness that this Taiwanese version of a “nieve” is. The mango flavoured ice is surrounded by fresh fruit and then topped off with a scoop of mango ice cream. A perfect mixture of sweet & sour, the countless brain freezes were totally worth it!
As for this dainty, vintage bag, it was a score from my new secret (not-so-secret anymore) shopping destination: Facebook trade-buy-sell groups! So far it’s making up for the lack of thrift stores in Taiwan. Not quite the same, but for now it shall do.
Outfit: Top & skirt from Taipei night market, ZARA burgundy boots, vintage bag bought through Facebook group.
