Hello everyone! I’m back…well sort of. My new place doesn’t have internet connection yet that’s why I can’t really blog properly plus, I’m too busy to build my new abode. I’m certainly enjoying the solo life right now and I believe it’s the best thing I ever did. I just wanna punch myself for not doing it earlier. Oh well, the universe knows timing better than I do.
Snow has been falling in Tokyo for two consecutive weekends and I hate how it’s all so icy, slippery and slushy all around the city. Those aren’t the best words for a rushing metropolis. I’ve been hearing sirens all over the place probably probably because of slipping accidents. I even heard my friend’s workmate got his arm broken because of the snow. People, I’m telling you, the snow is pretty whenever it covers everything with its immaculate beauty but once you decide to go out and walk in the roads, you’ll realize how you need to guard your life so you won’t hurt your precious ass. On the other hand, it’s a good backdrop for outfit photos. Funny how I coincidentally wore the same jacket during that snow storm in Tokyo last year. Maybe it should be my snow uniform, something I should wear whenever that white slushy stuff fall from the sky. This is what I wore when I went to Yokohama to visit my girls Carey and Rexcy and used me as a prop for Carey’s Valentine’s day post.

I know I’m gonna be all busy in the following weeks because I’m moving to my new apartment and that means, I’m not sure when I can have an internet connection to update my blog. So before that happens, I wanna share to you my experience on the latest fashion event I went to which was the presentation of the collaboration of Japanese designer brand Matohu and traditional Japanese art maker Coshell 2.
Matohu, being loyal to its DNA of using traditional Japanese styles and techniques decided to team up with the Iwate-based art brand for a collection of bags and accessories. Most of the bags are made of hariko paper which are usually used for traditional masks and dolls and were shaped in different animals specifically a bird, a cat and a rabbit. Because of their sizes and shapes, the bags seem to look heavy but I was so surprised they were as light as a feather when I tried carrying them. They are also stronger because of the extra coatings Coshell did for them. There were also these trendy bag-on-bags in different designs (doctor bag, military bag, crocodile skin bag and a basket) and these cute sukashi (Japanese hollow block) pouch bags which are also made out of hariko papier maches. The Matohu x Coshell 2 collection is available until February 2nd in their Omotesando flagship store (click HERE for shop access) so if you’re in Tokyo, better get these cute bags and accessories NOW!!!!
I don’t know when was the last time I updated my blog. To make things worse, I don’t even know when was the last time I even checked on my own blog. Isn’t that…bad??? I can’t say that I didn’t have time to make an entry and I didn’t have outfits to share to everyone. I did but I didn’t have the will to make one. To simply put it, I was being a lazy ass. I had a lot of things to do and was overly distracted by a lot of things so whenever I turned my computer on, I would rather just go to YouTube to watch clips of Ellen de Generes or Ru Paul’s Drag Race than to make an outfit post. But hey, I’m here now. I think I should stop with all the excuses.
This was taken in Aoyama during a freezing day. This is also one of those lazy days that I needed to drag myself out of bed, take a shower and dress up. I found this preloved leather blazer in a store in our area but decided not to purchase it at that time. I just did when I thought it would be a good additional layer to this look so I went back to the store and immediately used it after the cashier took my cash. I promised myself not to shop anymore but this jacket needed a new owner and I couldn’t say no. Moreover, it has also been a dream of mine to wear a skirt not in drag but in my regular fashion days. I found this skirt last year and waited for a few months before wearing it. I could have easily styled that jacket with a pair of black pants but the skirt and the leggings definitely pulled each other together to make this one androgynous school girl look.

By the way, I’m a few days away from achieving one of my goals this year and that is to move to my new apartment and live on my own. Packing is definitely not my thing but I’m just totally excited about the things I’ll learn in this new chapter of my life (that includes interior designing). I CAN’T WAIT! So since I’ll be busy with my new place, I’m quite not sure when I can update my blog again so it’s wiser to follow me in my social media accounts (Facebook,Twitter and Instagram). Thank you!
