something borrowed: Givenchy T-shirt

wearing: Givenchy T-shirt, Zara drop crotch pants, eBay boots

This is just another borrowed item outfit post, courtesy of my boyfriends wardrobe. He bought this T-shirt in the Shinjuku Barney's store while we were in Tokyo last December. He found it on sale so he decided to buy his first Givenchy piece :3 . I really like the print as well so I thought I might use it for an outfit post since I haven't really bought anything new lately. So lastly, I've decided to grow my hair like this now. I really like my old hairstyle but a) I will be starting work in Japan in under a month so I think this kind of more "normal" hairstyle is more appropriate for work and b) it's a lot less ANNOYING! To be honest, my old hairstyle was a bit of a pain because hair is always in my face/eyes so this one is a nice change :) . Hope it doesn't look too weird for me!

Great pieces, great photographs by the label Obscur for their Spring/Summer 14' collection. My favourite piece would be the boots in the 3rd picture :O !

Something borrowed: WJK coat

wearing: WJK coat, turtleneck from Kagoshima, Dr Denim jeans, creeper shoes

Hello hello. In this outfit post I'm borrowing my boyfriends coat :P. It's one that he purchased while on our Tokyo trip at I believe it was Ragtag (a second hand designer chain store in Japan). I really love it so it's lucky that we're basically the same size and that I like my clothes baggy :3

On another note, my birthday was yesterday (I'm now 22 :( ) and my graduation ceremony for uni is this Friday. On a final note, my flight for Japan has now moved to August 26th! I have a job waiting for me in a place about 1hr 45mins away from Tokyo. I hope to film the journey going there and whatever is around me when I move over there :).

side note

Hi hi. This is just a short notice to say that a while ago, about 90% of my blog photos have been deleted on the picasa web photo storage website... I was so pissed off because I was given NO warning! I made this blog actually several years ago and wasn't with Google plus so my pictures were automatically uploaded to picasa instead. So I am very slowly trying to build up each of my old posts again. Luckily I had majority of my outfit posts on instagram or my tumblr!!! I don't keep copies on my computer so I've made do with those. For other non-outfit posts, it's pretty frustrating to find the pictures again so some will just be deleted and others that I love too much, I will work hard to restore those posts. Some have also been altered so feel free to check them out again. If not, that's cool too :)

So I guess I would warn you guys who use picasa to upload your blog photos. I literally just went onto my blog one day to find all of my photos replaced with an exclamation mark.... no email. No nothing. But anyway, what's done is done and there's no use staying bitter over it.

Ok so this has turned out to be longer than a "short notice" but either way, I will try my best to maintain my blog as it's one of my favourite hobbies and I'm grateful for anyone who reads and enjoys my blog :)

stills addition


wearing: Lost & Found by Ria Dunn long sleeve gloved top, Rick Owens DRKSHDW waxed skirt pants, ebay boots

Ok so I suppose this is like an addition to the previous post? I wasn't sure if the video is clear enough to see the pieces so I thought I should also post some still pictures. Hmmm I would say that the video format idea is best for outdoors? So I suppose I would try another one if I'm going out somewhere? Anyway. I'm sorry if the first video O.P was lame! My Japanese is also so horrible and I need to start speaking again to practise!

Nicely flowing on from that, I will be graduating university this July!!!!!! I have passed everything and finished all of my study so my graduation ceremony will be on July 19th. After my graduation (July 20th) I will be heading off to Japan to live and work there for about 1.5-2 years until my boyfriend finishes uni. I will either be in Tokyo or in Kanagawa depending on where I am able to get a job. So hopefully things go smoothly! I will probably be quite busy during the move so expect a short hiatus. Sorry! But once things get settled I'm sure I will have some more cool things to post on here.

So that's all the new I have. I hope everyone is well and happy and thanks for reading/checking out my blog :)

V O.P #1 - Rick Owens DRKSHDW + Lost & Found by Ria Dunn

Hi hi hi! I'm extremelyyyyyyy embarrassed posting these videos but anyway I need to get over it. They're just of myself showing clothes for my blog. So this is what I sound like everyone!!! Is it what you expected? 

For the first video outfit post (V O.P) I changed my hair a little and it's very uneven because of my usual hairstyle. I just wanted to try it like this for a change but should revert back to for the next V O.P. 

Let me know if you guys like this format at all or not or if you think I should also add still photos along with it. Also let me know if this hairstyle is crappy on me or not please! 

Thanks for watching!
