Strike Two

Whoever said that “lightning doesn’t strike in the same place twice” has definitely never been to Harajuku and snapped by TokyoFashion.com. Like my first time, it’s an honor to appear once again in one of the most influential street style blogs in the world. The only thing I’m annoyed about it is that lady photobomber who seemed like she didn’t care even if she knew that it was a spot for fashion snaps. Oh well whatever! Thank you, TokyoFashion.com. About the outfit, this is a mix of everything not-so-new in my closet. I’ve used this graphic shirt for so many times for so many occasions and it never failed to draw positive reactions from people. The skirt-looking trousers has also been the same ones that I’ve worn in past posts.

Mistakes And Self Discovery

I’ve been longing to wear this amazing Christopher Nemeth suit for so long which my friend Sayoko asked me to shoot. This wonderful piece was what her son wore in his wedding and she wanted me to try it on for a show which I did last December. I love how deconstructed it is and yet, very classy with the silhouette and everything. I’m not into suits and I always long for comfort whenever I wear something so I just hope I gave it justice while strutting my stuff in beautiful Ginza.

I wasn’t the person who has this very definite unique style. It took me a lot of time, money and fashion faux to realize what I really wanted when it comes to fashion. Then I realize that it’s like life. You experience a lot of things and make mistakes along the way. Consequentially, these experience and mistakes will be the ones which will help us to build our character and personality. We are in this long winding journey that will take us to different roads and places but it’s gonna be a journey towards self discovery and a whole lot more.

Skinny Elephant

Last Friday was Friday the 13th and bad luck actually got the best of me for a week. It was so shitty I needed to see a friend to make me forget all the bizarre things going on. That’s why I called  my dearest Emika, my sister in matters of loving the color black, to have dinner with me in Shinjuku. I would always wear black whenever we see each other but this time, I broke the rules and wore gray instead. I remember her saying “You’re not my friend anymore” and I just laughed out loud. Well at least my sneakers and cap are black while I look like a skinny elephant.

Let me share to you some of the things I’ve learned in the past few weeks.

* Good things take time.

* We can actually choose the things that can offend us.

* We’re all born naked and the rest is drag (by Rupaul Charles, the world’s most famous drag queen). We all have this persona that we show in different places and instances but when you take off all these masks, costumes and uniforms that define your character for that certain moment, that actual naked person is the true you and you shouldn’t forget that.

* Whatever you do, whether good or bad, people will say something ill about it. Unless they’re paying your bills, pay them b*tches no mind (Rupaul Charles again).
