Travel: Osaka/Kyoto

So this trip happened months ago but I’ve been so busy moving (yes y’all, I moved to Tokyo!) that I didn’t get a chance to post yet. Here are some of the few pictures I got to take. Surprisingly most of the them were taken at Kyoto station where I was for a job interview. Despite all of the beautiful shrines and temples Kyoto has to offer, all I explored was the station haha. Anyway, enjoy the photos and I’ll be posting an apartment tour (I promise) as soon as I am moved in and settled into my new place! Cheers

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 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.

OOTD: BBC

I went to Nakamura Park for the first time today. This is significant because Iv’e lived  a one minute walk away from this park for nine months but have never been inside. I went with my co-worker Shawn, who obliged me by taking pictures for an OOTD. I apologize for my lack of posts, I’ve been very busy at work and have lost a little creative drive. I will try to post more regularly in the future.

Shirt: Billionaire Boy’s Club

Leather shorts: SPINNS (vintage)

Jean Jacket: Calvin Klein (vintage)

Shoes: Doc Martens

OOTD: Animalia

Back from vacation in Tokyo with lots of new posts to upload. The first is an OOTD with some inspiration from animal prints. I paired a leopard skirt and a snakeskin shirt together for the ultimate ode to the animal kingdom. The shirt is APC and I found it in a used clothing shop for 9 dollars! The sunglasses are ASOS (old) and the skirt is from GU, a popular Japanese clothing brand similar to H&M. The earrings are also from ASOS and are Swarovski Crystals (a Christmas present to myself). Here are the photos below! (thank God for the self timer setting on cameras 🙂

Shirt: APC

Skirt: GU

Travel: Little Big World Museum of Man

Today, I had the opportunity to visit one of the most unique museums I’ve ever seen, with one of my awesome students! This outdoor museum has traditional homes from all over the world, from countries like Burkina Faso, Italy, Peru and Indonesia. There were a lot of great gift shops, where I was able to enjoy a bit of Christmas shopping, while also picking up some souvenirs for myself. I really enjoyed the Peru landlord structure the most and the murals and furniture were absolutely a dream. Here are some photos I took, enjoy!

OOTD: Tradition

Hey guys, I’m back with a new OOTD, that includes a traditional Japanese garment I hacked into a skirt. The Haramaki is used by the Japanese for warmth in the abdomen area. Me being me, I turned it into a pencil skirt and paired it with a cK sports bra and my cK vintage jean jacket. I also added a new patch to my jacket! As I was scouring the fabric store for black fabric to make my Halloween cape, I came across this biting lip patch that I immediately knew was destined for my jacket. Here are some pics below of how the jacket turned out and the rest of my outfit. Enjoy!

Jacket: Calvin Klein (vintage)

Shoes: GU

Skirt: Haramaki (hacked)

Necklace: Bookoff

Bra: Calvin Klein

Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
