It’s always a good day when a gal like me gets some new gear and a couple of weekends ago I scored some new shoes while out shopping in Shibuya! The first pair is a pair of medium length (is there an actual term for these?) black boots from Zara. They were 9000 yen which is around 80 USD. They’re now the highest heel shoe I own in Japan and I hope to wear them sometime this fall (maybe out clubbing or to a fashion event!). The second pair I bought were the “Forrest Gump” Vintage Nike Cortez sneaker. In most color ways, I wouldn’t look twice at this shoe but the clean red, white and blue combination was irresistible to me. I was a little salty that all the other colors cost 8000 yen and this particular color way cost 2000 yen more but I bit the bullet and bought them. These will be the last shoes I buy for a while because of my trip to Bali! It’ll be my first time in Indonesia and I have to save some money to truly enjoy myself. I’ll be going for my Christmas vacation so in the meantime I’ll try to stay out of the thrift store 🙂 Check out my new purchases below!
Today is Sunday, and the first day I’ve had completely to myself this whole month. I took today to de-stress and have a #SelfCareSunday, which included making a nice meal for myself, taking a nap, watching reruns of trash reality TV shows and of purging my closet of summer clothes I’m not in love with or that were impulse buys that I now regret. I took the discarded clothing over to Hard Off, a Japanese chain of thrift stores that sells used clothing for very cheap prices. I took in two pairs of shoes, three dresses, two bags, a jacket, a pair of shorts and a hat, and got a grand total of 590 yen. If you’re looking to get rich off of your old clothing, selling to thrift stores is definitely not the place to do it and I learned that today. I was a little shocked at first at how little money I received but overall it felt good to get rid of things that don’t bring me joy by wearing them. After the purge, I went over to Treasure Factory, another thrift store nearby my apartment. It has a way better selection and I found some treasures that I’m absolutely in love with! Check them out below!
my favorite trend of fall was definitely the mock neck, also known as the second cousin to the turtleneck (just kidding, I made that up). Here are some looks I put together with the aforementioned style that I enjoyed wearing this past fall.
The shift dress
Dress: Forever 21
I’m in love with this dress and wore it to my going away party a couple of weeks ago. It’s a perfect transition piece from fall to spring 😊
Dress: Forever 21
I got this dress on clearance for only 7 dollars 😭 and I love to wear it with my thigh highs and long olive coat (which sadly I have to leave behind here in the states because I don’t have enough space in my suitcases 😔).
Top: Forever 21
I get so lucky finding sale items at F21; this too was was only 7 dollars as well.
-p.s. I’m leaving for Japan in two days and I’m so excited 😝
Hello WordPress world and welcome to my first look book! I’m so excited about this and will definitely be doing more in the future. I styled a few looks for anyone who is thinking about purchasing thigh high boots but doesn’t know how to wear them with what’s already in their closet. From the looks I’ve created you will see you don’t need to re-do your whole wardrobe in order to rock this latest fashion statement!
My first look is a suede miniskirt with a simple long sleeve T. Piece details below along with photos!
Skirt: H&M, Top: Zara, Necklace: F21
My second look is a plaid A-line skirt with wool turtleneck and leather jacket. This look is perfect for cold winter afternoons where style is still a priority.
Skirt: Thrift, Turtleneck: Thrift, Jacket: H&M
My third look is a simple A-line mini-dress with black tuxedo blazer. It’s a great date night option and with an edgy clutch or lipstick you’ll be sure to wow your date and most importantly yourself!
Dress: Zara, Blazer: F21
Lastly an outfit with a little spunk. I paired a medium wash jean with a vintage button down shirt and a leopard coat. A great outfit that can easily transition from day to night activities!
And there you have it! If you have any questions on any of the looks I presented or where you can find the boots I purchased don’t hesitate to leave a comment!
