    This has to be one of my favourite posts so far!
    Would love to know more about this little girl.
    What’s the story behind her sweet outfit? Where did it come from? Is it a special day? Or this is how she always dresses?

    Lovely post!

    I studied abroad in Hong Kong three years ago and was over all disappointed to the lack of style (as a whole). But every now and then you come across unexpected gems and it looks like you are finding them! This young lady could easily be unnoticed but I’m happy you spotted her! She looks great.

    That is nothing but real. She looks so cute (I think it’s a she) and what really irritates me that she looks so huge (on this photo) and her face so damn young! Great shot!

    I absolutely love young streetstyle. It’s so interesting to see how parents dress their children or how they dress themselves (in these cases, you never really know who’s the real stylist, do you?)

    aw, cute outfit! even if her parents dressed her, you can tell that she has style by the way she’s wearing it. would love to see what this precocious fashionista will be wearing in 10 or so years.

    I have been viewing this site for years and never commented, but I absoloutely love this ! The girl is dressed like a young spunky ball of cuteness. There are not undertones of being sexy, or styled by her fashionista mother. Its a great look and I would love to see more little girls dressed fun and appropriate ! It leads to wonders when they grow up. You go girl.

    Aside from her cute, unique and age appropriate attire, she has a very natural and attractive smile, like it was made for the camera.

    This must be a Pakistani or An Indian Girl Wearing Shalwar Qameez, the traditional dress in sub continent. And i think there’s crochet neckline and applique work on bottom of the shirt. That’s pretty cool.

    And she confirms one of my style beliefs that Crocs are for just right on children, but no one else!

    So inspiring. Love folkloric/tribal outfits specially with a modern twist. I collect pièces for my 4 yo daughter everywhere I go. My favourites so far are Corean and bavarian. Her smile is the best part of the picture though.

    I’ve been following your site for years but I’ve never posted on it though I check almost every day. I’m posting today because I’ve lived in Hong Kong for the past 5 years and it’s delightful to see a slice of the city through your eyes. Also, I had a little something to contribute about this picture. The picture was taken at the start of Wyndham St, just where Hollywood Rd ends. This area is full of bars and restaurants and right in the thick of downtown HK. However, in the building to the little girl’s left (which you cant see in the picture) is Hosseni House which houses a mosque for Bohra Muslims. So one often sees members of this community dressed in their interesting, colorful, traditional clothes. I love this juxtaposition of the traditional and the contemporary in this madhouse of a city (and in other great cities around the world).

    I have been reading this blog for over two years now and love it!
    Since a lot of people are asking about this outfit here is a background- there is a community in India called ” Bohras” ( and this is the dress young girls wear to the mosque and religious functions. The outfit is called jabla (tunic) izar (pants) As a young girl I loved wearing this and they are always in lovely colours with very nice detailing.

    Can we give the girl a break with the Crocs? She’s probably around twelve years old–what are her footwear options?

    My! The innocent lightness of her being just radiates whimsy and purity as one! I’m at a loss for words…just pure wonder in her lack of deception and forebrooding. Quite gestalt, really. I wonder what her parent(s) look like.
