As a girl from the tropics, my collection of winter clothes is paltry and pathetic. I wanted to look presentable in Shanghai but packing for 0 degree Celsius weather and coordinating was beyond me. So, I was quite conservative with my colours and stuck to gray, black and white most of the time.

Striped tee from H&M (from the flagship store at Huaihai Road)| Long cardigan from F21| Gray skinnies from ASOS| Wool scarf from People’s Square at only S$5| Striped gloves from China years ago| Jeffrey Campbell knock-off boots from Gojane.

This was me without my brown winter jacket when I was inside the Memorial House of the Shanghai Office of the Communist Party Delegation(周公馆).  The memorial house showcased the rooms and offices of members of the Communist Party when they were in Shanghai.

Entry is free. The memorial house is located at No. 73 Sinan Road, near Fuxing Middle Road (上海思南路73号)

Finally a photo of me and my brown puffer jacket from Mango.

I was at Chen Haiwen‘s photo studio at Taikang Road. This Chinese photographer spent one year traveling all over China to take pictures of Chinese’s 56 ethnic groups. The “Family Portraits” series was a very comprehensive project as each photo has the date of photography, location and the names and ages of all subjects.
