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 is my favorite – it’s casual yet chic at … Continue Reading

OUTFIT | Summer lovin’ in Harajuku

With August just around the corner, it’s finally starting to feel a lot like summer, or at least it is for me. The endless heat wave, summer barbecues and trips to the beach. And when its over 35 degrees Celsius everyday plus the humidity, less clothing is a must. This airy T-shirt dress from Blondy … Continue Reading

OUTFIT | Leather & Corduroy

I’m finally back from Okinawa, after 4 full days at the Satsang Yoga & Music Festival. I did bring my laptop with me so I could respond to comments and organize photos, but there just wasn’t as much time as I had hoped. I’ll be posting more about my trip very soon! Meanwhile, here is … Continue Reading

Moschino Opening Party at Harajuku La Foret

I attended the Moschino Opening Party at La Foret in Harajuku with my friend Amy. It was probably one of the more colorful events I’ve been too for sure! Red and yellow everywhere! I especially loved the Moschino x Jeremy Scott collection (the cow print bags and accessories) and the Fall Winter 14-15 Runway Capsule … Continue Reading

Back to black

I went back to black… literally. I got a new do this weekend and decided to sort of go back to my natural hair color (black) and sport some bangs again. Like I said in my last post, I can’t get enough of black. The heels and blazer I’m wearing here are a bit old, … Continue Reading

Harajuku & Shibuya

  Started my week off right by hanging out at Harajuku and Shibuya, 2 of the best places to shop in Tokyo. I met up with a girlfriend I hadn’t seen in 10 years, and she showed me around 🙂 We stopped by Harajuku first, and I spent a while at the Forever 21- the inventory is … Continue Reading
