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

2 nights in Venice, 1 day in Milan

The last part of my Italy trip consisted of 2 nights in Venice and a day trip to Milan. Both cities were more than I had dreamed of – Venice being the romantic city above the water with a life of its own, Milan being full of hustle bustle, with larger buildings and fancy shopping … Continue Reading

Romantic black floral in Paris

Have you ever heard someone say that Paris is the “city of romance?” While lovey-dovey romance wasn’t in the air for me, I did enjoy the beautiful scenery of Paris and the romantic French language all around me as I toured the city. One thing I noticed during my travels is that I really dress … Continue Reading

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.

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

Mixing textures: satin x velvet x denim

  My three favorite textures in one outfit. I’m suddenly in the mood for blue hues, and this reversible MA-1 jacket from Fig & Viper is absolutely ideal for fall going into winter. I’ve worn it before with a velvet navy set-up, but I wanted to keep the color palette a little more simple with … Continue Reading

Pleated blue velvet

From the previous weekend when I had a delicious buffet-style brunch at the Shinjuku Park Hyatt.

Pairing these red hues with a mix of darks and lights made them stand out even more. I love how the bag can become … Continue Reading
