Birthday Goodies Haul

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!



The perfect white shirt. The folded picture doesn’t do it justice. Can’t wait to reveal this Issey Miyake masterpiece in an OOTD post coming at ya soon 👀
I saw this in a vintage store in Shimokita and didn’t think twice. This was meant to be mine and I’m saving it to wear in the fall 👻
This sterling silver piece was so gorgeous I had to purchase it even though I usually don’t like spending more than ¥500 on a piece of jewelry. Maybe this will inspire me to be a rich bitch and invest in more expensive jewelry!
My first YSL purchase! *insert Young Thug ad lib* this vintage clutch will go really well with an all white outfit and cost only ¥5000!

Gorgeous see through vintage shirt perfect for this hot Japanese sun ☀️

Separate post coming on my weekend and what I wore!


OOTD: No Slacking

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!

Slacks: Burberry

Choker: SPINNS

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.


Sometimes it’s cool when the camera doesn’t focus



Buffalo Exchange Haul

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!

A.P.C. dress

Graphic skirt

Prada skirt

Black lace up heeled boots

Hand painted (I think?) Vans

Mall Cops

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?


New purchase! Vans Sk8-his

My vans came today! I’ve been wanting a pair of sk8his for a little while and was inspired to buy a pair by all the street fashion icons I’ve seem wearing them. UO was having free shipping that day and these shoes were ONLY available in my size, so I took it as a sign that I should get them. I’ve also been trying to find a sneaker that fits my personality and this one definitely says me!
