I’m back from my slight blogging hiatus, and I’m ready to get back into the game. In my last post, I mentioned that I was visiting my hometown in California, and also traveling to New York and Texas, all in just 12 days. To be completely honest, it was not enough time at all to do everything I wanted, and there were so many people I wanted to see – but as always, the rest will have to wait ’til next time.

お待たせしました!一週間以上ブログを更新していなかったのですが、本日からまた定期的に記事をアップしていきます。改めて、宜しくお願いします。

ここ2週間、実はロスの実家に戻っていて、その間もニューヨークやテキサス州も訪問してきました。とても弾丸な旅でしたし、やりたいことはもちろん全部できませんでしたが、心から楽しめました。できなかったことは次回ということで(いつものことですが 笑)。

This time around, I was determined to meet with as many photographers in the area as I could to add a little more California vibes to my blog content. These were taken by the amazing Jennifer in a parking lot behind a Vietnamese restaurant in Chinatown. By mere coincidence, the red on my T-shirt matched the red of these awesome New York alleyway-inspired stairs. The glow from the 5 o’clock sunset worked beautifully in our favor, and we shot these in the span of maybe 15 minutes (my photo shoots are quick!).

今回は、なるべく沢山のカメラマンとコラボレーションをしようと心に決めていました。ブログにはいつも東京の風景を紹介出来ていますが、やはりたまにはちょっと違う感じの写真もアップしたいものです。今回の画像は、ロサンゼルスのチャイナタウンにあるレストランの駐車場で撮ってもらいました。カメラマンのジェニファーさんはとても素敵な方で、しかも仕事が速い!15分ぐらいで撮影が終わりました。たまたま私が来ていたTシャツの赤が、階段の赤とマッチしたので、バランスのいい写真に仕上がりました。夕焼けの太陽の光で少しムーディーな感じになったのも気に入っています。

I’ve recently been a huge fan of wearing oversized clothing, especially T-shirts and sweaters. One of my DJ friends happens to be a designer for a street wear label called Untitled Club, and the image on this particular T-shirt is the same as the poster for my first DJ gig. Yep, he basically offered me my first gig as a DJ, so of course I had to get the T-shirt! I thought if I got it in XL, I could wear it as a T-shirt dress, balanced out with over-the-knee boots so as to not show too much skin but just enough. And this intensely studded denim bag from DressCamp is my absolute favorite. It’s edgy, sturdy and fits everything I need which makes it a perfect traveling partner. I usually steer towards monotone colors like black or navy, but I decided to try this light-wash denim color and I ended up getting so many compliments on it. It’s always good to change it up and try something different.

最近、オーバーサイズのアイテムにすごくハマっていて、特にTシャツやプルオーバーが好きです。私のDJの先輩がたまたまストリートウェアのブランドのデザイナーで、今回着用しているTシャツのイメージは初めてのDJのお仕事のポスターと同じイメージなんです!それはやはり買わずにいられませんでした。Tシャツワンピとして着たかったので、XLサイズを購入。膝上ブーツとバランスが良いかなと思いました。そして、このバッグ!ドレスキャンプの新作のデニムシリーズは、沢山のスタッズディテールですごくエッジが効いていて、しかも頑丈で沢山ものが入るから使いやすいです。普段はモノトーンカラーを選びますが、今回は薄いデニム色を選びました。たまにはちょっと違うものをトライするのもいいですね。

My next post will be about my New York trip, so stay tuned! Thanks always for the love<3

次回はニューヨーク旅行についてアップするので、お楽しみに❤️

I am surprised that you had time to shoot at all! It always goes by so fast whenever I go back home, there never seems to be enough time. Time with family and friends, it all just rushes by and I always end up thinking, I will do this or that next time.

Love the leggy look! The oversized t-shirt with boots is so hot. And it’s always fun to work with new photographers to see what type of perspective they’ll bring. Amazing photos and modeling as always!

You have such an edgy look I always admire! I love these kind of shoots, in alleyway, capturing the essence of a place! My shoots are usually quick too especially when it’s minus 12 degrees outside! haha

Love the oversized look too! Can’t wait to see photos of your NYC adventures!

Amazing. You look so feminine, and your accessories even though they are so sharp and dark. You are like a dark diva straight out of a comic book. Very awe-inspiring.

Of course your photo shoots are quick as that’s what pro models are good at, not surprised at all! 🙂 And 12 days with those 3 places to visit really isn’t enough so I can understand that you didn’t have time to do all the things you had planned to, but there will be more times to catch up with people and things. I love the photo shoot as such and how the red matches with your outfit too! 🙂

The photos are stunning ! This photographer did an absolute great job and as always you look simply wonderful.

I love loose tshirts too but don’t really know how to pull it off without looking too small or like I just jumped out of bed.

Hope you a great time visiting your home town.

I love how you guys were able to find such a cool location that matched your outfit seamlessly. I also have a hard time looking for locations, but like you, my photoshoots are always pretty short. I love the spiked handbag and the casual glam look!

Like yourself, I always try to meet with a photographer in whatever city I’m visiting. It takes a huge workload off me and I don’t have to worry about transferring photos, editing, etc. You sure did a lot of traveling in 12 days. Slow down girl 🙂

Whoa your photoshoots are super quick! I love how the red railing matched your outfit. My photographer is super picky about backdrops, lighting and angles so it takes us longer than 15min… Definitely digging the oversized look too!

Such a killer look and the location could not have been more perfect for this fantastic outfit. I Am in love with that hat and this edgy tee is well styled with the nude fishnets. I’ve seen so many black fishnets and love that you went with the nude. You always inspire me with your editorial shots. I hope you had an amazing trip! Xoxo, Christine
