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!
So yesterday was my 23rd birthday! I celebrated all weekend but on my actual birthday (which is on a Monday) I was in what I like to call “blissful retail solitude” in the hip neighborhood of Shimokita, where I picked up some birthday presents for myself. I have pictures for you to see what I picked up!
Separate post coming on my weekend and what I wore!
Hi everyone! I’m happy to report that after two weeks in Japan, I am settled into my apartment, have a handle at my new job and have been exploring Nagoya by myself (I took the subway by myself for the first time yesterday!). I haven’t had the chance to upload an OOTD post since moving because 1) I didn’t bring many stylish clothes to training and 2) I didn’t have my tripod yet. Now I have both so check out my latest OOTD!
Halter Top and Earrings: Forever 21
Shoes: Adidas Stan Smith
Got these Burberry slacks from a vintage shop in Osu, a shopping district in Nagoya. There were only 5800 yen! (around 53 USD). They are size 38 (European sizing) and when I put them on they fit like a glove. Twas meant to be.
So a few weeks back, I got the chance to visit DC and I did a bit of shopping around Georgetown and Foggy Bottom. The store that stood out to me in particular was Buffalo Exchange, a consignment shop that has locations all around the country. I visited both locations in DC, one in Georgetown and the other being on 14th street. Very affordable (the Prada skirt was only $45!) and I recommend finding one in your city! Here are the items I picked up!
Ever since I saw the commercials for Euphoria, I’ve been curious of what it smells like. So I went in blind and purchased it on amazon for a discounted price! It smells guuuud, I recommend it for any woman looking for a subtle and sweet fragrance 😁
This play on words is a new category I’m featuring on my blog, called “Mall Cops”. These are items that I purchased exclusively from inside a mall, so online shopping and thrift stores don’t count. My first post is this pink fuzzy sweater I got from H&M for 30 bucks. The price was a little steep in my opinion but since I don’t have one pink thing in my closet, I thought I’d make an investment. Thoughts?
