Hayao Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro (となりのトトロ) actually came out the same year I was born! It’s admirable how timeless most Ghibli films have become. People of all ages still know them by heart decades after the films came out, and the characters have also become pop culture icons in their own right.
Sadly, I wasn’t able to go to the Ghibli museum in Japan last March. The tickets sold out so early and so fast! *cry* I’ll make it happen one day. In the meantime, I’ll probably just ogle at the pretty merchandise in Donguri Republic (a Ghibli-themed store in Hong Kong).
What’s your favorite Studio Ghibli film? Mine is a tie between Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle. My first Ghibli film was super depressing though. I don’t think my heart can handle watching Grave of the Fireflies again. After the ending, I had to watch the first scene again just so I can have proper closure, lol.
I’m wearing yummy dessert colors because I miss Laduree, Pierre Herme and Angelina macarons already! I swear you can never have too many macarons when you’re in Paris.
Finally posting the look that launched a thousand hair-related questions. First of all, this ombre isn’t real, okay? :) Secondly, I really wish I did have pink hair, or pink streaks at least. The most I can do now is cheat and Photoshop it in different colors since I still don’t know if there are any good local salons with pastel pink dye! Sponsor me please! (Obviously, there is no such thing as shame when it comes to my hair, lol)
What made me do it in the first place? Just check out my Comfit chunky color block heels! The bottom part has this really cute shade of pink that reminds me so much of cotton candy. I replicated the effect by just lasso-ing my curls in Photoshop and hue/color-ing a gradient over it.
One of my friends asked me on Instagram, “How do you wear mullet skirts? I have no idea what to pair it with!” Personally, I love wearing them with loose tops instead of going through the usual pair-it-with-a-corset route. I’m a super casual girl and loose tops make mullet skirts a little less dressy and a bit more relaxed!
