My new Tokyo apartment!

So hey everyone! I finally moved to Tokyo yayyyy! I’ve been here for two weeks and I’ve spent this time setting up my apartment and getting accustomed to the neighborhood. After all of the cardboard, plastic wrap and unpacked bags, I finally have everything the way I want it. Check out my crib in the pics below!

Loving this clothing rack! It’s always been my dream to have one in my apartment. It was bought as a gift by my Japanese mom, Noriko. It’s the perfect way for me to plan my outfits and see different shapes and patterns come together.
My T.V. area. Peep the BAPE towel! There was a JLo video playing in this picture lol

My casual clothes. I tried to organize everything by color. Excited for fall so I can wear my crazy button downs.
This is my computer and book storage area. Cute, ain’t it? Let’s hope it will encourage me to study Japanese harder πŸ˜‚

Bathroom, not fancy but it gets the job done.
Look at my snacks!
My genkan. It’s customary in japan to remove your shoes here before entering a home.
Shoe closet!


See ya soon, I’ll be posting about some new gear I’ve bought since moving. Ciao β˜•οΈ 

OOTD: Animalia

Back from vacation in Tokyo with lots of new posts to upload. The first is an OOTD with some inspiration from animal prints. I paired a leopard skirt and a snakeskin shirt together for the ultimate ode to the animal kingdom. The shirt is APC and I found it in a used clothing shop for 9 dollars! The sunglasses are ASOS (old) and the skirt is from GU, a popular Japanese clothing brand similar to H&M. The earrings are also from ASOS and are Swarovski Crystals (a Christmas present to myself). Here are the photos below! (thank God for the self timer setting on cameras πŸ™‚

Shirt: APC

Skirt: GU

OOTD: Tradition

Hey guys, I’m back with a new OOTD, that includes a traditional Japanese garment I hacked into a skirt. The Haramaki is used by the Japanese for warmth in the abdomen area. Me being me, I turned it into a pencil skirt and paired it with a cK sports bra and my cK vintage jean jacket. I also added a new patch to my jacket! As I was scouring the fabric store for black fabric to make my Halloween cape, I came across this biting lip patch that I immediately knew was destined for my jacket. Here are some pics below of how the jacket turned out and the rest of my outfit. Enjoy!

Jacket: Calvin Klein (vintage)

Shoes: GU

Skirt: Haramaki (hacked)

Necklace: Bookoff

Bra: Calvin Klein

Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

New Pieces: Lemaire x Uniqlo

last weekend on one of my days off I visited the Uniqlo store in Honjin in search of some good deals. I had been to a store in Ozone and snagged some pants for work for only 500 yen! Uniqlo didn’t disappoint again and I found pieces from their collaboration with French luxury brand Lemaire, on sale. Here’s some pics!

PS: I booked a trip to Hon Kong for next month and I’m so excited. Ok bye 😁

wore the pants out today. I’m hoping they will be more crisp if I use a different iron.
