Flying home.
Whenever I return from a trip, I find the first thing my friends and family ask to see photos of is the food. Which makes total sense... In fact I'm pretty sure I do the same. And the food was probably one of the best parts (if not THE best part) of my trip this time around, hence the overload of food pics above! And outfits of course, cos I got a lot of questions about the type of thing I wore in Tokyo (although 3 of the photos are of the same outfit cos they were all taken on the same day Lol). You can check out A LOT more of what I got up to in my recent trip to Tokyo in my vlogs of course, all 3 parts are linked below. Hope you enjoy!

TOKYO VLOGS : Part 1 / Part 2 / Part 3

Instagram ♡ Tumblr ♡ Facebook ♡ Twitter ♡ YouTube



Vintage denim contrast stitching vest and skirt (the latter is customised) from eBay, vintage shirt from Etsy, rings from eBay / borrowed from mum, 
boots by Windsor Smith, vintage beret.

Literally the day after I saw this and this photo from Alexander Wang's Spring 2014 collection, I purchased a contrast stitching denim vest and skirt set I had been watching on eBay for about 4 months. I knew this late 90s/early 2000s trend would be making a comeback soon, although I can't say I'm seeing it everywhere yet. Probs should point out though that the skirt is not from the original vest set (whaaat ??!?). The set skirt was a fail - I bought a contrast stitching dress on eBay - had it altered into a skirt - voila! I had a full set that matched (almost) perfectly. It has been a work in progress for like... 6 months, I am not even kidding. Although it's taken me a while to debut it here on my blog. Plus it works great as separates too!

Can you believe this though, not just a photo post but a video too ??! I hope you enjoy my first outfit/look video below:

Tokyo Shopping Bits

Gifts from Brandon - Vogue Nippon March 2002, Fashion News May 2000, FRUiTS magazine, Koenji Kidz sticker and buttons.

Stickers from a store in Nakano Broadway.

Socks from Bubbles, Harajuku.

Solid face masks and Hello Kitty face masks from Daiso (these things are so handy).

Yurie Sekiya stickers from WALL, La Foret.

As much as I wanted to do a full-on Tokyo haul for you guys, I really just didn't buy enough this time around! I bought mostly little bits and pieces, a few clothing items, accessories and gifts for friends and family. Above are just a few of the little things I picked up for myself that are still sitting in a corner of my room, not yet stored away. If you follow me on tumblr or twitter or pretty much anywhere I'm sure you know how much I love 90s/00s catalogue & magazine scans, as well as how much inspiration I get from early 2000s fashion, hence the perfectly appropriate nearly-vintage magazines from Brandon (thanks again if you're reading this!). And how gorgeous are those Yurie Sekiya stickers?! I was super sad I missed out on her exhibition, but those stickers are the cutest ever so I had to buy one of each set. They're glittery and slightly 3D too *heart eyes emoji*

All 3 parts of my Tokyo vlog are now live on my YouTube channel! But I just remembered I have a ton of photos as well, so perhaps a Tokyo photo post will be coming up next? And an outfit post for SURE. It's been wayyy too long, cos editing those vlogs has been so fun but super time consuming. As usual I hope you guys are doing great and I'll talk to you soon :-)

4 Back to School Looks (Part II)

As requested, another round of Back to School Looks! Flat-lay is a pretty gruelling but fun process, and I tried to keep each look as the type of thing I used to wear to my university classes. Wearable, comfortable and school-appropriate. Things that are easy to wear for long periods of sitting down and catching public transport. I hope you enjoy and perhaps find some inspiration :-)

Look 1: PREPPY - Supre crop, thrifted pleated mini skirt, Merona cardigan, vintage coach backpack, Windsor Smith platform loafers, beret from eBay, K-Mart knee-high opaque tights, Adidas Originals watch.

This look is definitely inspired by Clueless vibes and that pared-back 90s minimal style, focusing on a simple colour palette. I'd even wear little black bike shorts under this mini skirt for extra freedom of movement. And no - I don't expect you to fit all your school supplies in a bag that tiny lol. I just could not effectively fit the intended bag in the frame for this look, but it would have been my Candy Sugar japanese school bag.

Look 2: SPORTY - Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals oversized t-shirt, American Apparel denim backpack (customised with studs and Katie keyring), Nike sneakers, YMCMB official snapback, Adidas Originals watch, bike shorts from eBay, socks from somewhere in Shibuya. 

This is actually my go-to travel, school, movies, running-erands, quick-and-easy look. The t-shirt is insanely soft and has a really flattering fit despite how big it is! This is such a suitable look for class, and the denim AA backpack is super sturdy and great for carrying a laptop and books.

Look 3: CUTE - Topshop polka-dot dress, Supre crop, pastel backpack from SPINNS, Nike AF1 sneakers, Adidas Originals watch, crescent moon choker from Etsy. 

A classmate of mine once told me I looked like an ice-skater when I wore this to school. The skirt of the minidress definitely has that vibe. Super-short and/or thin-strapped dresses are much easier to wear if you layer it over some bike shorts and a fitted t-shirt. And I can guarantee the comfort of this look as I wore it on the hike up to Diamond Head Summit in Honolulu.

Look 4: CASUAL - Custom crop sweatshirt, American Apparel denim shorts, Nike Sneakers, American Apparel thigh-high socks, Opening Ceremony tote, crisis heart necklace from eBay, Adidas Originals watch, Sportsgirl sunglasses (and my iPhone.)

Most days of uni classes I would wear a variation of this look (a different colour crop sweatshirt, a different colour of shorts, a different pair of Nikes…). It's also another go-to everyday casual look I wear in cooler months. In winter weather I add a long-sleeve crop underneath and a pair of tights. Sometimes I'd even swap the shorts for a mini kilt or tennis skirt. It's a laid-back look that doesn't look too laid-back (great sentence, I know.)
