OOTD: Jinja

Jinja is the Japanese word for shrine. Today for the first time I visited the Minamisawa Hikawa Shrine, a five minute walk from my apartment building. It had a serene and peaceful feeling and shrines are fast becoming my favorite places to take pictures. It was also such a beautiful experience to see some of the senior citizens in the community coming to the shrine to pray and pay their respects to their ancestors. I went with my friend Ruth and she was able to get some great shots of me! Check them out below!

DIY: Faux Fur Heels

I’ve been itching to do this DIY for a while and a few days ago I said f*** it, it’s time! And I rushed over to Joann’s to buy fabric glue and faux fur. Luckily when I got there I grabbed the last black fur boa that was available and then I knew the fabric gods were looking out for me. Here is the finished product below. I might add the leftover fur I have to the ankle straps but I’m not sure yet we’ll see 😎

MATERIALS:

– a pair of single strap heels (preferably a cheap pair you don’t mind messing up)

– Fabric glue

– Fur boa (mix it up, there are so many colors at Joann’s!)

Collaboration: Plaitwoman x The Black Tux

I was approached by the Black Tux, a tuxedo rental company, to create the perfect date night outfit! I immediately thought to put together a suit in recognition of National Tux Day, which was on October 10th. I styled it with a pair of men’s inspired dress shoes and a sparkly halter neck top. I think it’s the perfect blend of men’s and women’s fashion that is a great alternative to the standard LBD for a night out!

Blazer: Forever 21

OOTD: min.

This outfit was what I wore to church today. Very minamalistic and the style I’m trying to move towards as I get older. (Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still rock a baseball jersey and some sk8-hi’s 😎)
