On Saturday I went to Jenny Fax Mikiosakabe’s S/S 2016 fashion show invited by PR01 at Laforet Museum, Tokyo. I have always loved Jenny Fax but this is the first time I get to see the show myself. The brand’s style always reminds me of the dark side of cuteness. With their 80’s cabbage dolls signature patterns, getting to see the show myself made me so excited cause they also have the cabbage dolls mini show during that. This season though, they remain the cute and playful tone in a way that goes slightly darker than before. And the reason I think so might be because I get to see the show live, with strippers on the right of the runway and four kids jumping up and down on the left, all that makes me feel like I am watching a dark comedy on stage. I love how they play with paint textures on skins and on the fabrics as well as how they still keep their signature dreamy colors and embroideries in many of their looks while expressing out the perfect touch of rebellious youth through the kiss of 80s. These are my favorite looks from the show:

Maybe it’s because the weather’s making me feel lonely and I just moved here, to Tokyo, homesickness is still not leaving me alone. So no matter how much inspirations I got from this lively city, I had completely left my blog blank for the past week and went mostly offline with writing. Apart from that I do (like always) enjoy Tokyo, one of my all time favorite city. I am loving the coolness of fall. Bangkok, my hometown are most of the time, hot and humid so I rarely could pick out Fall/Winter items from the wardrobe cause there’s no such seasons there. I am into the grayish tone at the moment, and my recent favorite accessory is this gray hat I wore today, the natural curves it gives and the texture of it is so lovable!

Hello again Tokyo

IMG_8043 Hello! It’s been a while since I last blogged. I’ve been so busy preparing to come back to Japan, this time not as a trip but I will be residing here, so it took me a few days to get things done while settling in that I’ve no time at all for the internet! Now I guess it’s all good, and apart from the usual homesickness I get more and more each time I move as I get older, I am excited to learn about this country and its culture. Hopefully I’ll finally be fluent in the language as well and get inspired by one of my all time favorite city like Tokyo💘

This is one of the corner inside my apartment. I am in love already! 💛🌼

Bébé de juillet in Japan: Tokyo

No matter how many times or how long I’ve been to Tokyo, it never fails to surprise me with excitements. I had always been fascinated by those cities that never sleep, the ones that you can stroll around from day to night and won’t make you feel lonely nor bored, those that have so much for you to discover.

Tokyo love

I’m currently in Tokyo for a short vacay, and it has been distracting me from everything else. I’m so in love with city, since my last visit I just knew I had to come back❤️ 


Yesterday was my birthday and I decided to visit Tokyo Disney Sea💘 you can never be too old for Disney! Mermaid Lagoon is my love since Ariel was my childhood favorite Disney Princess👑

Enough about my not-so-guilty pleasure, Today I went to get my nails done at Nail Salon Avarice for my up coming article on Cheeze Magazine, Kenya-san (the owner) and Kana-san (the nailist) has been very friendly to me and they had given me the perfect design for The Nail Spell💕 I can’t wait to go back and write about it. In fact I cant wait to go back and blog so much about everything here!

 Here is a sneak peek of my nails today💛

I just need to think more before spending, it’s so easy to throw your cash out not just on the cute things but also the vintage and the food! It’s my second day here and I’d spent half the budget already…

Leaving to Osaka on Sunday, in the mean time visit my instagram for more photos🌸
xoxo
