Being a girl with multiple occupations, I’m constantly out and about, sometimes traveling to 3-4 locations in the city per day. As a model, I’ll have auditions and photo shoots to go to; as a blogger, I schedule my own photo shoots somewhere in the city with photographers or go to business meetings; and as a DJ, I have lessons and gigs several times a month. Sometimes, I do need to bring my laptop or my modeling portfolio, and this requires me to have a sturdy bag that carries all my belongings. This is where 25TOGO Design’s Oribagu backpack comes in extremely handy.
The Oribagu, or the origami bag, literally means “folding paper” in Japanese. Their designs are unique in that they “fold” animals to create 3D bags, giving a traditional art form a modern twist. They have rhinos, bulldogs, bears, and chinchilla cats, to name a few. I chose this Snow Crystal Gorilla for two reasons: it’s white marble (my favorite!), and it easily fits my laptop or modeling portfolio in style. I’ve gotten so many compliments on this backpack already because it’s a never-before-seen design, and I think it’s hard to come across quality backpacks in the popular marble print.
While I do love to get glammed up for parties and events, I usually dress pretty casually especially if I’m required to be in so many in one day. To bring out the clean white marble of the backpack, I selected pale colors like this denim jacket and grey Calvin Klein sweater, but kept things put together with the black skinnies and Adidas. And I just love how my marble Sudio Swedens match the backpack. White marble for the win.

I love that you are constantly hustling! I get bored easily so I love to also be proactive. The bag seems very useful and convenient for your lifestyle. I definitely need to check it out since I’m always on the go as well!
I love marble accessories and haven’t seen a bag like this before. It looks amazing. It will go with so many of your different outfits! So chic! It looks like a great size so it’ll fit so much of your necessities while you run from place to place!
I’ve been meaning to get myself a backpack for such a long time. I think its practical and you can find so many fashionable options nowadays. Love this one from Oribagu and the marble effect!
Okay first of all you’re so dope!!! I just love your style! I’m getting more and more into large book bags and this one is fly! I’ll definitely have to check it out!
I am a huge fan of backpacks. This one is a fabulous marble color that I would carry with everything and you can fill it with so much more than a normal bag plus easy to carry. Great post.
LOVE the origami bag from Oribagu ? you sound super busy babe. But even with a busy schedule, you’re still able to rock it all! XO Charissa || http://www.ladygoldapple.com ||
I love the bag! It’s also amazing that you are so accomplished and doing so many things at once! So impressive.
This backpack is super cute! I didn’t realize it was a gorilla, but when I looked close, the resemblance is so obvious. I love the origami design and am definitely going to check out all the others they have. This is so cool!
As a student, a backpack is an essential!! This bag is so cute and I love how you talked about why it’s a special brand! Definitely going to check this out!
Girl, you are such a busy boss! I knew you were a blogger and DJ, but no idea you were a model too. All those jobs definitely require a sturdy bag and this backpack is really nice, great choice!
I love backpacks period. I still carry them to this day (the one I had from 7th grade) and people think I’m a student, but I don’t care. It’s so much more convenient and back-friendly than a purse. That marble color is so stunning! I want yours!
I would love to go to one of your gigs and listen to your music. do you have a youtube video of you playing? I love your style and I hope you get all your auditions!
THIS LOOK (insert praise hands emoji like a million times)!!! I could see myself wearing this every single day. Seriously so comfy and so sporty-cute! Plus, oh my goodness that bag! I can’t get over the marble pattern and how it actually looks like a gorilla. Seriously obsessing over this brand’s funky twist on backpacks! I want one now haha!! So much fun!

Love the marble print on this backpack! I love marble anything so this is just perfect. I also have the Sudio Sweden Regent headset and love that you can switch up the design on those headsets to match and what a perfect match it was for the Oribagu backpack.

You are such a cutie! I love how you styled this outfit girl! The bagpack looks good on you too!
I love the marble print! That is such a cute idea. The folding aspect. You would be needing a good bag to carry all of your gear around with you. I imagined you would be on the go all the time!
You are such a successful women and I still don’t know how you manage to do everything babe! I’m always so interested to read and know about you since you have such a different style from other girls and I love it. Having a great bag to carry your laptop is always so important and this back pack is stunning. Im obsess with marble as well but looks like the perfect size to fit your laptop and others day essentials. I may check this brand out since I need a backpack for my travels 🙂

You are completely amazing and inspiring in all that you do ! Your talent is extraordinary! I love this backpack so much!
White marble ftw for sure! I am however so impressed how you juggle all your occupations in such an efficient way and knowing how large Tokyo is, it must require a lot of planning to get all things done as well. As always you’re slaying with the looks here! 🙂
