Tokyo is yours – & a new DJ mix!

It feels so good to be back with a fresh new post. With Tokyo Fashion Week this past week, and also preparing for another DJ gig this weekend and working on my new DJ mix (read on to the end!), it was pretty damn hectic. And when life gets too hectic, I sometimes have to … Continue Reading

How to wear a bold T-shirt 3 ways for fall

Being a California girl through and through, wearing T-shirts is second nature for me and I probably own more than I really need. I’ve recently noticed that wearing bold-colored tees is the trend this fall, so I picked one up for myself – a bright purple logo T-shirt from Studio Wear by Moussy, their newest … Continue Reading

Sporty, spice and everything nice in Fenty X Puma

Ever since international sensation Rihanna launched her brand Fenty X Puma, I’ve been inspired by her edgy street-style collections and have added a few pieces to my own wardrobe. This time, I was asked to try out the Farfetch shopping app, and I knew I had to get myself a pair of the Fenty X … Continue Reading

Shades of cool in home sweet Tokyo

After a long yet short trip to Paris, I am finally back in home sweet Tokyo. While I won’t get into details here, I did encounter a small list of unexpected events throughout my trip; but despite such setbacks, traveling to the city of my dreams was the best thing I did for myself, and … Continue Reading

LA meets Tokyo street style

Growing up in California and having lived in LA for a couple of years during university, it’s hard for me to let go of that way of thinking and I think it shows in my personal style. After moving to Tokyo 5 years ago, I’ve also acquired a lot of the Tokyo style that’s trending … Continue Reading

Stand Out From The Crowd

Standing out from the crowd – this is actually tougher than it sounds. Some people are naturally gifted with extroverted personalities. I have and still meet people who are bold in their actions and speech, and from an introverted girl’s POV, it’s something I’ve always looked up to. But I don’t let my shyness keep … Continue Reading

A Friday night at UCESS the Lounge

My second ever DJ set at UCESS the Lounge in Harajuku went surprisingly well, despite running late because the train stopped (boy, did I sweat it there!) and customers already in the venue waiting for the event to start. Last time I played for 40 minutes, but this time I played an hour-long set with … 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

Chiffon, lace and bows

Today’s my first full day off since my birthday, and it feels so good to finally spend my morning like it’s Sunday. Doing a lot of odd jobs these days, including modeling, blogging, narrating, sometimes singing, sometimes translating, sometimes teaching… it means my schedule changes weekly and I’ll sometimes work weekends and get random days … Continue Reading

OUTFIT | A denim dress on an autumn day

It’s hard to believe we’ve already passed mid-November, and the colorful leaves are starting to flutter onto the pavements to create golden carpets. I’m recently very into vests because they provide the perfect level of warmth for these semi-chilly days. This faux leather/fur vest from Forever 21┬áis my favorite – it’s casual yet chic at … Continue Reading
