The Power of “NO”

Saying “no” can be one of the most difficult things to say to someone. It can change relationships, hurt people, and even cut ties with the other individual or party. I’ve had to do it countless times in both professional and private settings – saying no to people I considered my friends because they were … Continue Reading

On the go with Oribagu

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 … Continue Reading

Mixing denim and faux fur

The winter season calls for mixing up different textures you otherwise can’t do during the warmer months. When I saw this denim x faux fur midi skirt at the Zara Shinjuku Flagship store opening party little while ago, I had to have it! It’s not often you find a chic skirt like this, and I’m … Continue Reading

Black & white nostalgia

Black & white photography immediately arouses feelings of nostalgia. I’m a pretty nostalgic person at heart, especially since I live a completely different life than I did until 4 years ago. モノクロ写真はノスタルジアを感じさせます。私自身が結構ノスタルジックになりがちで、東京に来る前の時期をいつも思い出します。 Forever 21 dress, Chiara Ferragni espadrilles, Are You Am I choker, zeroUV sunglasses         All photos by Gabriel Perez.  

Vibrant in Desigual

Challenge to myself: wear more colors. I wore these flared pants at the Desigual party, but I re-styled them for a day out at Odaiba. Instead of adding more color, I kept things simple with a basic top and denim jacket. I also sported some of my new accessories – a clear choker from Choke … Continue Reading

I actually performed at Night Nation Run in Japan, the first running music festival in the world. I was a featured artist for EDM unit EDO, which includes DJ Marc Panther, club-D … Continue Reading

Velvet & violet

There are so many ways to dress up a fur coat, but there are also just as many ways to style it down. I actually like how a plush violet faux-fur coat looks with light-wash denim. I got this pair at the Moussy opening renewal party in Harajuku, and they are my favorite right now. … Continue Reading

Luxurious in Ginza

It’s so much easier to look luxurious in the winter by just adding a faux fur coat to any outfit. And it doesn’t have to be expensive either. I picked up this Forever 21 coat for $100 USD, and it’s my favorite outerwear of the season. Since it doesn’t have a collar, balancing it out … Continue Reading

A holiday look in navy & red

A bit late, but Merry Christmas & happy holidays ya’ll. Christmas really gets me in the mood to dress up a little, and adding a pop of bright red with a simple turtleneck spiced up this holiday look. And fur, whether fake or real, is an easy way to add a luxurious feel to any … Continue Reading
