Dearest my sweet readers who survive this severe cold
of winter,
Dress well and keep warm, and put a thick plaid stole
around the neck......
Maybe red tartan is better than blue gingham which reminds me
of outdoor tables of summer.
Yes, it's very sure that red tartan makes the cold
somehow feel a bit less painful.

It's strange, but when gathering with my family to celebrate
my mom's birthday, all of a sudden, I hit upon
the question:
 "How many more years can I wear what I wanna wear?"

Skinny leather pants......maybe, fluffy dress, crazy print top,
neon colors, or patent leather......
Some say that "I can wear them regardless of age",
but is that true??

A stadium jacket, for instance, how more years can I wear this?
Maybe the time is limited though I don't want to notice that.
So...as long as I can, I'll keep to wear what I wanna wear
with a too girlish tulle beanie and platform Louboutin.

The main role of today's look is these shoes~
Christian Louboutin "Madame Mouse."
I love them especially for the shape, feminine yet modern.
And of course, a sculptual resin detail evocative of mouse ears.
They prove that grown-up style can still be playful and adorable!!

    I'm currently into stripes this season, especially
    Dries Van Noten tricolore stripe is the first list
    of my it-items and I bumped into that amazing piece.
    This is oh-so perfect with the patterns and also versatile
    when putting on under your jackets or coats.
    It significantly works as a statement piece and an unexpected
    accent in the winter dark colors.

    Craving for these shoes with insanely breathtaking heels.
    Fendi vs Celine.

    Which do you prefer??





    I'm all about fuzzy items as the temperature drops,
    and pulled out this coat that I purchased last winter.
    Again fuzzy thing, again pink color.
    'Cause it's so beautiful and hard not to love.
    Though it's super cold here in Tokyo, I'm bringing back the warmth
    from Bali for a moment.

    Browsing around online-boutiques and blogs, my finger stopped
    at Mansur Gavriele and these beautiful bags just shot my eyes.
    Needless to say the bags are simple, with sleek lines.
    All bags are available with colored lining that make them look so different.

    My favorite one is the bag with red....I'm all in.
    How about you??



    As you are reading this, I would be my way to the Denpasar airport
    heading back for Tokyo.

    I ended up having a time walking around, drinking, relaxing,
    and doing almost nothing.
    Though the weather hasn't been on my side, I do miss
    the resort stay here in Bali, my heart still seems to remain,
    so reluctant to leave such a nice villa with a beautiful yard and pool.

    Hope you are having wonderful New Year holidays so far!

    I am still in Bali, enjoying very much deserved vacation...
    trying to catch up on sleeping and having spa treatments almost everyday.

    In a tropical island like here, wearing summerish outfits is also fun.
    I packed some pieces that I couldn't try on last summer.
    Especially this sequined neon top makes this a perfect resort wear
    for the lazy, cozy holiday week.
