My Favorites: Bags

Hello everyone! I’m back with a post about my favorite new hand bags, totes and purses that I’ve acquired while in Fashionworld, also known as Japan.

This purse is vintage Celine. I bought it at the TreFac store in America-mura, a popular fashion hub in Osaka. Its the perfect bag for an all black outfit or for a sophisticated jumpsuit.

This Opening Ceremony tote is truly the bag of my dreams. I have wanted an OC tote for a while, but the image in my head of the bag I would eventually acquire was the basci black tote with the white lettering. This colorful floral piece is perfect for spring and I got it just in time for Hanami season!

This flower pin was made by one of my students! It was such a beautiful gift and matches perfectly with this bag!

This Adidas tote is the ultimate style girl’s travel companion. Don’t let the picture fool you, this tote is actually huge and is perfect for a overnight/weekend bag.

LOOKBOOK: Thigh High Boots

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!

Topshop Haul

Being the smart shopper I am, I hit one of my favorite brands while they were having an online sale, that brand being Topshop. I scoured the trenches for anything I needed in my closet and anything that was dirt cheap. I ended up with two pieces one that fit each of those descriptions. The first is a grid patterned boyfriend blazer, which will be a nice addition to my business casual repertoire and can also be used for night life outfits (in the colder months like November). The second is a bright highlighter yellow crop which was only $4 so I said why the hell not. I wore it yesterday to the bar with cut offs and my black creepers and I thought it was a pretty cute outfit for that type of environment. Check out my goodies below and enjoy!

DC in Review: Soussi

Last Sunday I went to Soussi, a hookah bar and lounge in Adams Morgan. It was a nice dimly lit spot, with great food (the fries are so delicious and I recommend the spicy chicken sandwich) drinks, and of course every flavor of hookah you can think of, though I didn’t participate in the smoking (I’ve heard about the health risks so I wasn’t interested). I highly recommend this place for a group of 4-8 friends for a chill and laid back night filled with laughter and good music.

Poshmark Pick of the week: Vintage Acid Wash Overall Dress

This weeks Poshmark pick is this vintage acid wash overall dress. I bought it off of etsy two years ago and it’s one of the signature pieces I have decided to let go. It would make a great addition to any closet, especially someone who is a lover of all things vintage! In the background you can see a pair of sunglasses; these are Madewell and are also for sale on my poshmark closet. Get a closer look at poshmark.com/closet/uzochi ✨

OOTD: 80 degrees

Last weekend I visited my little sister at her apartment in DC. She’s there all summer working and living there for free so naturally I’m jealous lol (she’s only a ten minute walk from Buffalo Exchange 😔). Here’s what I wore on our outing of shopping. 

Crop Top: Wet Seal

Skort: Thrift

Shoes: Thrift

Sunnies: H&M

Side Note: on our way back from shopping my shoe came apart. Luckily we were by a public library and I help it together with rubber bands supplied by the librarian. I immediately changed into my Docs when we got back, but good news: I had it fixed at a local shoe repair shop! Now they’re as good as new 😊
