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: Pretty in Pink 

Today was a good day. Good outfit, good movie, good company, good laughs, everything was just peachy 🍑! I’ve been dying to wear this shirt I got on sale at a Zara in Shibuya, but it was thoroughly annoying when the top ruffle kept blowing in the wind and exposing my goodies to the streets of Shinjuku. I had some help from Erwan to keep my shirt down and he took some great pics of me. Check them out below! 

PS: I looove wearing pink now, I never knew how good I could look in it! Now on the lookout for different shades 🎀. 

Wearing:

Top: Zara

Skirt: thrift

Boots: ASOS

Earrings: ASOS

Purse: Burberry

My Depop Shop

As a serial impulsive shopper, I buy many garments that I simply never have worn or will never have any use for. I’ve been trying to stop this type of behavior because 1) Tokyo is expensive and 2) I’m trying to downsize my closet. I decided to create Depop shop (username is plaitwoman) with some items that I have no use for or that I don’t wear. I also posted these items on Facebook for sale groups located in the Tokyo region for more exposure. I plan on posting these items on eBay as well, but if you’re interested in purchasing anything feel free to email me at uzochi_okoronkwo@yahoo.com. Check out some of the items in my closet below!

OOTD: Marigold

Hey there everyone, finally time for a new ootd post! Yesterday, I attended the Night Aquarium, an event where art, water and fish all come together to create beautiful artfully designed aquariums. I will post more about the event later but this is what I wore:

Dress: Trefac (only ¥300 😭)

Cowboy boots: ASOS

Purse: Burberry

Earrings: H&M

I just bought this purse today for ¥500! I 💛 Burberry.
My friend Sho took these pictures and he loves to shoot me when my eyes are closed 🙃🙃
Always enjoy your life. Always.

Till next time! ☕️

ASOS Haul

ASOS is one of the online stores I know that ships to Japan which is why I loyally shop with them and have over the years. I recently picked up some shoes and clothes and I want to share with everyone! Let’s commence,

These baby blue croc skin mules are perfect for summer and will definitely accompany me on my trip to Phuket 💅🏾
Cowboy boots, my first love when it comes to shoes. I have a few pairs at home in the U.S. but none in Tokyo so I had to re-up.
Simple outfit idea to wear with cowboy boots 😁
Idk what shoes to wear with this yet, but I’ll figure it out eventually. I really like asymmetrical dresses and this one was on sale for an amazing price so I had to cop!
Needs ironing 😅
This princess fairy shirt gives me the wings I’ve always wanted 🦋
I bought a pair of Krystal London Swarovski crystal earrings the last time I ordered from ASOS and I loved them so I got another pair, this time with pink stones 😍
On body (face)

That’s all for now, I hope to have another post tomorrow about my OOTD. Till then, Ciao 🍾😘

My new Tokyo apartment!

So hey everyone! I finally moved to Tokyo yayyyy! I’ve been here for two weeks and I’ve spent this time setting up my apartment and getting accustomed to the neighborhood. After all of the cardboard, plastic wrap and unpacked bags, I finally have everything the way I want it. Check out my crib in the pics below!

Loving this clothing rack! It’s always been my dream to have one in my apartment. It was bought as a gift by my Japanese mom, Noriko. It’s the perfect way for me to plan my outfits and see different shapes and patterns come together.
My T.V. area. Peep the BAPE towel! There was a JLo video playing in this picture lol

My casual clothes. I tried to organize everything by color. Excited for fall so I can wear my crazy button downs.
This is my computer and book storage area. Cute, ain’t it? Let’s hope it will encourage me to study Japanese harder 😂
Another cork board with some messages from my students 🌸✨

Bathroom, not fancy but it gets the job done.
Look at my snacks!
My genkan. It’s customary in japan to remove your shoes here before entering a home.
Shoe closet!


See ya soon, I’ll be posting about some new gear I’ve bought since moving. Ciao ☕️ 

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 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.
