Today is the last day of 2014! I can't wait for it to be over...
I spent the last two weeks cleaning my room so I could have a new start in 2015. yay!

This is my absolute favorite thing I bought on my business trip to Japan recently.
I live in Southern California, so I don't really invest in coats too much
 but I could not leave the store without this one...  once I tried it on it was over.
This coat looks and feels really expensive but it was only about $130 usd. Not bad...
The neck/shawl part turns into a hood... It's the craziest thing ever!

Have a wonderful New Year everyone!
Stay warm :)

The sound of soft rain is nice too...

Hope everyone is having a nice week! Stay warm :)

Skirt: BB Dakota - Dey Skirt, Shoes: Top Shop

My old classmate Bun-chan from language school visited me
and since she loves shopping just as much as I do
I gave her the full course shopping tour of LA.

I have all different types of friends but most of them aren't really into the whole fashion thing.
It's funny because I haven't seen my friend Bun-chan for years
and I just realized we like the same things like photography, shopping, Asian food, the same fashion brands, random Japanese stuff... etc.

Anyways, the weather was so nice during our Santa Monica shopping date so just had to take pictures!


cut out shoes

Cut Out Shoes - ALL BLACK by American Rag Cie

Ahh... the weekend went by too fast again.

A few weeks ago
the stars aligned and I walked into La Brea's American Rag Cie during their shoe sale.

I've always wanted a cut out shoes
and my search ended the day I met these beautiful shoes.
The soft leather makes each step so amazing...
Someting about the cut out details... it's just soooo stylish. ughhh.

I'm still thinking of what to wear it with
but I was thinking of wearing it with some solid blue skinnies,
a light monochrome outfit, or even printed pants.
If you have cutout boots... what do you wears your with?


gold body chain jewelry

Shirt - Aritzia, top - LF, Leather Skirt - Zara, Body Chain - botique

I found this body chain from a cute boutique shop at Abbot Kinney.

I've seen a couple bloggers wear it with their swimsuit and low back tank tops
and thought it wasn't really my type a first...
but when I saw it on the mannequin layered with clothes I fell in love with it!
There's something about the subtle touch this chain adds to the outfit as it drapes down the side.


Malibu Camping

 Zara SS14' - Raffia Black Espadrille
It took 1 month to break these in.

After a two month torando at work i'm finally back to my normal life.

These are pictures from my short camping trip in Malibu.
I'm a super indoors person so we found a place in Malibu that had a clean nice shower and bathroom. :)

Ever since Hawaii I appreciate nature so much more now.
With so much technology and noise around us
it's really nice to get out of the city, turn off the phone,
and just enjoy life and the sounds of nature.

There's a heatwave this weekend in LA.
I can't wait to get out of this cafe and meet my
my best friend/ #1 shopping partner who's in town.

More posts to come this week!
Have a great weekend! 


Summer photoshoot with Rei

 Cut out tank - lush
Bag - Vintage Coach, Shorts - Irene's story
Model: Rei
Styling by Emipan & Rei 
Hat - Vans

A little while ago my friend Rei and I did a photoshoot again for fun.
100% of the indoor photos we took were fail....
so we gave up and went outside. hahaha.

This random goldmine was just down the street from her place in Torrance.
It's funny the things we yell at each other to get each other to smile. lol.


white railroad

Dress - BB Dakota/Jack  Heels - Zara
Vintage Tokyo Bay Watch - Flea Market
Photography by Tammy

I've been having a lot of fun with summer photo shoots :)
This one was taken in Downtown LA on a hot and windy afternoon.

The color white has been very popular for a while now.
You can wear it all year depending on how you style it too.

I always had a hard time finding a nice white maxi dress because
the fabric was too see through or the color was too optic white..

I found this perfect dress from BB Dakota/Jack.
The fabric is light but not see through at all because it has a nice matte texture.
The slit on the side makes it pretty awesome!

Hope everyone is having a good week!


pencil bow skirt

Yay! This is my first pencil skirt purchase.
I wanted to add something different to my wardrobe so I was so happy when I found this at Zara.
I love this skirt because it has the cute bow accent in the front
and the color of the fabric is a nice soft summer-y pink <3
I paired it with a casual shirt to dress it down a little.
