A CAT WOMAN

Inspired by my favorite heroin, I'm playing with a cat-woman style today.
I wanted to complement the belt I purchased at asos by instinct,
and to pair it with a textured flounced top.







 In addition to them, I also added a cat to my finger to finish the look.
Depending on the movement, she glitters and peeks out a bit
with reaching arms like she punches...looks soooo charming, doesn't it?

SPLASHY PRINTS!

It seems winter has gone, and the air's getting warmer and brighter.
So today I decided to take off a thick coat or all bundled-up outfits
and picked up a crazy print top I bought last week.
I love the look of splashy colors which differ between back and front.

MOTO JACKET

A moto jacket is one of my go-to-pieces to walk around
in this season's unstable climate.
And today, with a bit challenging mind, I opted energizing black&red
color combination for that.

It does look a little too aggressive, so I paired with a big-bow skirt.
It can be helpful to soften the severity of leather with a feminine flounce,
and a pleated neck top keeps it from overwhelming the rest of the outfit.
Worn with my favorite BVLGARI sunnies.

SPRING LAYERING

I got a hint from the tank from 3.1 phillip lim's new collection
that showed a sheer blocked top layered on a logo tank.

I love to think a new idea to restyle outfits,
picking up from my wardrobe to coordinate the duds I already own.

Sheer floral lace + a striped skirt?
It's unusual, but they showed breath-taking match in an unexpected way!

floral skirt: grapevine by k3(JP brand/also love this)
striped skirt: topshop(old/similar here)

LOTUS FLOWER

Originally, 'Len' was named after lotus flower~
Its chinese character which means lotus can be read like 'len.'

So naturally, whenever I see lotus items my heart is drawn to them,
and this....printed pants I found at H&M new collection 
immediately enticed me by inescapably strong force.

TOKYO FASHION WEEK

Following the cities around the world,
Tokyo just got brighter colors this week
not just because of Cherry blossoms,
but the arrival of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Meanwhile I hung around in Aoyama for the exhibition
of textile works by art school students
where you can see understated beauty and design approach
with attention to details.
I'd rather love to support them more eagerly than the advanced couture labels
'cause students are so passionate and talented to produce quality items
They refreshed my eyes and heart and gave me new perspective
for creation in the end...










I wore......
coat: Deuxieme classe(JP brand/also love 3.1 phillip lim's)
top: Plumpynuts(JP brand/also love Joseph's)
pants: theory(here)
bag: CHANEL
boots: ROSEGOLD(here/similar here)
bangle: bought in Italy

SPRING BLOOMS

Happy Wednesday!
And, actually, we're having a national holiday today
called 'Shunbun no hi' which means: a day to admire and welcome spring!!
So cute, isn't it?
Well, we do nothing especially, just do what we want and have a day off anyway...



Cherry blossoms are just blooming, birds singing, trees get greener,
they are all what are to be admired and lived together.

Spring is so beautifully blooming, here in Tokyo.
