This was my Christmas Day outfit! Decided last minute that I didn’t want to wear red because I already exceeded my self-imposed red quota last December. So hipster of me to take the less popular option. There’s a little bit of gold, at least?
I spent most of Christmas Day with my mom’s side of the family. It’s all a blur now because I can’t remember doing anything else but eat every few minutes. And Mario Kart (of course).
Day ended with a perfect Christmas dinner with the boyfriend Rg. I don’t know how I ever got to this point where I remember my days by the food that I eat. Holidaze.
White on white with a hint of rose gold always makes for a clean, classic look. I haven’t been wearing these kinds of outfits recently but all the pretty S/S 2014 collections made me temporarily drop my favorite dark hues.
I’ve had this dress in my closet for a while now but never really got to properly wear it out until now because I felt like it was too plain to wear on its own without any accessories.
If I wanted some contrast, I would’ve worn the black version of this Morellato jewelry watch set (it exists), but I wanted to do something high key for a change. What do you think?
I personally love the pop of white accessories against the white dress, especially since I’m not too fond of wearing anything too loud. I’ll just let my hair color and plum lipstick do all the talking!
Morellato’s got some really nice watches to complement their accessories. Obsessed with the subtle crescent moon on this one!
Now here’s something that every Potterhead should have, I think. It doesn’t really state Hogwarts anywhere and I know the school is in Scotland but it reminds me so much of Harry Potter all the same. <3
Posted this on Lookbook quite some time ago but only getting to post it here now. Last weekend was a complete whirlwind of emotions for the whole Go/Gosingtian family, but I’m generally okay now. It has already been 3 days since then, though we had been preparing for it for what seemed like an eternity. Life for all of us left here must go on, when all is said and done.
I was originally planning to write a whole usually-shallow entry on recycling outfit concepts with completely different pieces, considering that it wasn’t long ago that I wore a similar outfit with more or less the same color scheme. But I’m only human, after all - I get lazy and I also have other things in life to worry about besides what I’ll be wearing for the day. I’ll get to that part later this week, after I find time to slow life down for a bit, organize my thoughts and prepare myself to immortalize one of the most major events that ever happened my life in this blog.
The day that I’ve been dreading has finally come, so here’s a bright and golden outfit to celebrate the end of my My Own Fashion Week Fukuoka series. No oxblood/maroon or black for this one, I’m afraid.
Now that my hair is lighter, I can wear these kinds of light monochromatic outfits again without my old dark hair contrasting too much.
This cream sweater is something I got on sale at the OLIVE des OLIVE store in Canal City, the same store where I got a few of my cute button-downs and peter pan collar sweaters last 2011. One year has passed since my first visit to Fukuoka, and they still possess the same daintiness that drew me to them in the first place.
I heard daisy motifs will be huge this spring/summer in Japan, following the success of the Marc Jacobs Daisy branding. I’m not surprised the Japanese loved the white and gold flower design so much that it has somwehow transcended into their fashion as well. OLIVE des OLIVE had a very subtle take on it. From afar the sweater looks quite plain and ordinary, but it actually has flowers with small golden studs on each center. It’s these details that make me love Japanese fashion so much. Sometimes they’re not so in-your-face when it comes to trends so you can still wear their clothes regardless of what’s in or what’s not.
Ahh, I’m so sad that this is going to be the last MOFW for a while, since I don’t have any planned trips until April (possibly Europe, like Austria and Germany) and May (Hello USA!). Unless I get a spontaneous sponsored trip this February or March… which is my ultimate wish right now, lol. T_T
My blog needs rest from all the constant traveling too, I guess. :)
Sorry guys, my bag isn’t Laguna Moon but it sure looks like it. It was sold out when I went to the actual Laguna Moon store in Japan, but thanks to Romwe I managed to get myself the exact same design. Thanks to ViVi and a close-to-iconic photo of Lena Fuji holding the same bag, I went all cat crazy for the nth time. Lucky for me last F/W, high street had a lot of these feline furries.
For the 4th day of MOFW, I’m wearing a gold skirt from dazzlin and a pair boots from Esperanza. First things first, Esperanza is on the top of my list when it comes to the best shoe brands I’ve ever tried in my life. I have another pair of boots from them, a black platform pair with a higher heel height, that I’ve worn on my Lookbook a number of times already. They are still in almost-mint condition after wearing it pretty much everywhere. Most of the time I pack at least one pair of heeled shoes when I travel, and that particular pair is always my first choice. I never get blisters and I can wear them for hours, without hurting! What is this sorcery, Japan?!
Anyhow, after a good experience with the Esperanza shoe brand, I got myself another one back in Fukuoka. This time I chose a shorter heel height which is ideal for traveling in both comfort and style. There’s a slight cushion inside that makes it even more comfortable! Plus it makes you feel like you got your money’s worth lol. I also chose it for the two-toned design which was all the rage in Japan during my short visit. :D
On the other hand, this fabulous gold skirt is from the popular Japanese brand, dazzlin. I know them primarily because they present regularly in the touchMe presentations along with EMODA, MURUA, and the other brands from Mark Styler (a fashion group that manages a roster of brands that I all coincidentally love). They recently got Jennifer Eyemere, editor-in-chief of France’s JaLouse magazine, to style the recent dazzlin presentation, which I think is quite genius for them to do, since it presents a different kind of Japanese fashion to people from all over the world. Not the popular notion of it always having to look like cosplay, lolita, decora, etc. I’ve already lost count of all the times when I’ve gotten strange looks from people who ask me about my ultimate fashion influences. When I say Japanese fashion, I guess most people expect me to dress up like Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Girls. Story of my life. Huu, it doesn’t always have to be wild and colorful! T_T
