 jacket random, tshirt EMODA, jeans linosug, shoes JC Lita, accessories random

Last week I received my first Yumetenbo order! ♡ I've only bought from Galstar on Rakuten, but I had been wanting to try out this shop for a while. I got these jeans & a poncho that it's suddenly become too hot to wear lately (seriously, it's 78° here!! ٩(●ö●)۶) I'm really happy with the quality of these though & the fact that they fit! Yumetenbo sizes go up to LL so I thought the M might be too small... I can't imagine who can fit in the size SS! ٩(´Д` ;)۶:.*೨ Wore these with my usual Litas & the EMODA shirt from last year. I wish the other colours hadn't been sold out though because I would have definitely bought them in every colour. Reallyobviously into distressed/crash denim lately.

shirt kenzi w, jeans DIY, shoes JC Lita, accessories random

I'm kind of getting tired of using the retro filter on my photos, but the sucky lighting in my room only reminds me how much I need to invest in a better camera. FOREVER BROKE  ༼༼;; ;°;ਊ°;༽༽ I'm going to try to post sans filter for a while though... we'll see how long it lasts!

Anyway... The first of 2 YesStyle orders came last week & this amazing shirt was in it. I love the loose, off-shoulder fit of it & the weird drippy logo on the front. Paired it with these tie-dye jeans I bought like 2 years ago & decided to rip up for fun. It just reminded me of something the fabulous CL from 2NE1 would wear...

top BAKARE, jeans EXPRESS, shoes Jeffrey Campbell, accessories NASTY GAL + random

My personal aesthetic seems to be shifting back to this kind of look lately... I try to do ladylike & colourful for a while but somehow I feel it's just 'not me.' I always feel most comfortable in black anyway, haha ♫♪꒰。ゝω⚫꒱♪♫ I have also been majorly inspired by oraora-kei which 2 of my favourite bloggers, Mitsu & Rii have posted about. Mitsu actually has an awesome intro to the style here ❤ I really like the 'tougher' image, & of course monochrome & mannish elements. 

I still like to keep my girly accessories though...

The Mr. Kate ear cuff I got for Xmas hasn't left my ear lately & I totally forgot about these dream catcher earrings my best friend gave me years ago. But I kind of wish they were gold...

On a random note, I got stopped on the street by someone who wanted to take a picture of my Zeke heels! In a Walmart parking lot no less, go figure |||᷇᷇˃⁻᷄⁻̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦υ͜⁻⁻̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦̦᷅˂|᷆᷆|| Such is the power of Jeffrey Campbell.

via YesStyle

Currently obsessed with South Korean men's brand deepstyle which 'caters to the modern gentleman who is acutely fashion-conscious.' These were only a few of the pieces I could definitely see myself in... I guess this means I secretly wish I could dress like a pretty boy? ( ΄◞ิ .̫.̫ ◟ิ‵) Also digging how their male model is totally channeling Gackt, haha.

Wut berlin S/S 2012

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Wut berlin is not a brand, but actually a select shop located in Omotesando with a highly stylised curated collection that creates its own aesthetic. In other words, all of the designers Wut berlin chooses to show are so perfectly complementary, you feel like it could be a brand in itself. Their theme for s/s 12 is 'DIGITAL GODS,' which is obvious in the Greco-Roman influence mixed with modern touches such as a 'big silouhette' & 'a combination of print and print.' I love how androgynous the pieces are & the fresh, vivid colours as well as the psychedelic mix of prints. 

Also... one of my very favourite blogs Tokyo Telephone did a fabulous first-person writeup (with amazing photos included!) of the show here & Wut berlin's shop blog is a definite bookmark. For those who love cutting-edge fashion ❤

My dad has an old customised jacket he got while he was stationed in Korea back in the 70's that I always admired, which was similar to this... baseball-style, satin, embroidered with hangul & some other things... So you can imagine how stoked I was to find this amazing replica, with Japanese representation instead  (ღ ・ิ◡・ิ)ε ・ิ ღ)㋪㋞㋪㋞ The pink satin & dragon in the front is pretty cool, but the back is probably the best part... The Japanese islands are illustrated & named with all the major cities. Overall it's just a completely awesome retro piece ♡

...& it goes perfectly with these glorious wing heels from Topshop Unique. Worth every fucking penny (ી(΄◞ิ౪◟ิ‵)ʃ)

vintage denim jacket from Electric Blowfish, Art Deco earrings + Drag On collar necklace from Melody Ehsani, ASOS Japan satin bomber jacket

Just a few new additions  ʕ•̫͡•ʔ❤ʕ•̫͡•ʔ I made my first order from Melody Ehsani & it definitely won't be my last... The Art Deco earrings are shown with the Drag On collar in the lookbook & I thought they made such a perfect set I had to get, haha. 

I have to post more on this f*cking amazing ASOS jacket because this photo doesn't do it enough justice... oh, & also these...

So crazy about Rihanna's personal style lately. On the streets or at events, she always looks cool & flawless. She inspires me so much ♡

vintage silk tropical top, Target collar necklace, Zodiac earrings from Girlprops

 Say hi to one of my favourite new accessories, Scorpio swag earrings! ʕ•̫͡•ʔ❤ʕ•̫͡•ʔ These come in all Zodiac signs & in silver too if you're not a gold girl. Also debuted this gorgeous thrift store find that I've been finding an excuse to wear everywhere... It reminds me so much of the crazy tropical prints shown in the Givenchy pre-fall 2012 collection, no?

Barbie ♥ Tiny Frock Shop

Thursday, February 16, 2012

Former head designer at Betsey Johnson & Heatherette, & current designer for Anna Sui Pamela Thompson has spawned probably the most awesome brainchild ever... an online shop for both manufactured & handmade Barbie clothes & accessories dating from the 1940's onward! Bonus: all of the dolls on Tiny Frock Shop are styled in true editorial fashion & even have their own model profiles. How insanely adorable is that?

Makes me wanna dig out all my old Barbies & just have a fun photoshoot with them ʕ•̫͡•ʔ❤ʕ•̫͡•ʔ
