This weeks inspiration...

Alexa Chung and Chanel Iman for German Vogue.


Dior Spring/SUmmer 2010 ready-to-wear collection has me jumping for joy and eager to pull out my favorite frilly socks and red lipstick. A mixture of old Hollywood glamour, lingerie and cute, 50's-esque shapes, makes me want to grab a glass of champagne and head to a library.

Silk, Silver and Leather

Im off to a dance class and drinks with some friends today. I guess this is more of a sharp look rather than an outfit for just hanging out with friends... but I have been desperately wanting to wear my new silk pants!  The gorgeous handbag is another of my second-hand store finds! Metal mesh bags are amazing! When worn right, this little beauties will never go out of style!

Black in a Hat

Black Black Black! It was about time I played with black! I have this amazing Eric Javits hat! I have not had a chance to wear it out yet... But I am determined to find a perfect occasion. The cute black and bead skirt is from none other then... wait for it.... Forever 21 (the online store)! A great little mini that will go with everything! Its really sexy, but paired with a blazer or coat is becomes a perfect look!

It's not even Winter and I can't wait till Spring! Just for these wonderful dresses from Luella... my favorite designer. The feminine necklines and the 'just-right' length skirts are so perfect!

Grandpa Pants

So Im off to work today and I thought I would channel my Grandpa. My tweed pants are from an Australian vintage clothing store and the jacket from HnM... (alright Im a HnM fan). I used my Hermes silk scarf as a belt which I think is the highlight of this outfit. My lovely new shoes are actually the type of shoe worn by school girls here in Tokyo. I can't stop wearing them!

High top red.

Just playing around with some new red tights and a new red hat I have recently added to my wardrobe. The cute little bowler hat I grabbed from HnM and the tights from a great second hand/recycled clothing here in japan called WeGo. Along with my Tiffany's necklace and previously shown HnM jacket Im very secretly loving this look... hehe! If only I could wear stuff like this outside of my room!

Boots, Belts and Navy

Here is the latest outfit I put together that I love. My Topshop 'Dusk' boots finally arrived... Sadly Topshop don't ship to Japan. I am in love with them. I wasn't sure they would fit in with my otherwise 'girly' wardrobe... but alas! I teamed them up with my navy knit from last winter HnM and a cream and black lace dress from an Australian store Bardot. Perfect for my day shopping in Ginza, the heart of Tokyo.

Maybe its the lips... I want them!

Dress of the Month

I wore this fun outfit to Harajuku today for my hair appointment. I really love the '31 Sans De Mode' polka-dotted dress I found in a small boutique store.  The bold shoulders and colour make this my favorite dress of the month!

YSL vintage find!

Yep! I found this gorgeous pair of Yves Saint Laurent 1.5 heel beauties! The suede shoes are in amazing condition... I just have no idea what year they were crafted! The heels are a beautiful tan colour with gold detailing. Ahhh I'm so sad, they are not my size! Ebay anyone?

Hermes Vintage Silk Scarf

I am having the luckiest week! I found this stunning 100% silk scarf in a charity store. Made in France the Hermes scarf is decorated with cream, navy and gold straps and buckles and has 'Hermes Sellier Paris' written in navy. Gorgeous!


Look at this amazing black and silver leather clutch! Its a vintage Valentino that I picked up from a second hand store. Amazing I know! Its the perfect finishing touch for my Autumn wardrobe!

Key Pieces of Alice in Victoria

Gloves and jacket from HnM, cream Monte Negro vintage bag 1983, Meramorphose button-up skirt.

Alice in Victoria

The beautiful baby blue skirt is a cotton and silk high-waisted mini, directly off the streets of Harajuku. One of the famous styles in Harajuku are the cute Lolita girls. The Lolita subculture has a very distinct style, incorporating baby doll, victorian style dresses, large hair bows and hats, knee high stockings and pretty much anything thats cute and a little over-the-top. Gothic, Sweet, Punk and Classic Lolita's can be found all over Tokyo and I must say, Im sweetly falling in love with the style, quickly. I used an old HnM black lace top and gave it some of my own love, with a pair of scissors. The black and gold detailed jacket and the black bow gloves are two of my latest finds from HnM. My sweet little bag is another charity store jewel! Labeled Monte Negreo made in Japan 1983, it sold for 500 yen ($5.40 US), a very lovely buy! For my second Autumn look, I took inspiration from the adorable Harajuku Girls and the elegant Victorian era.

Key Pieces of Eclectic Highlands

Silver 'A' pendant I picked up from a temporary charity store.
Brown 'fake' reading glasses from my local 3 dollar store.
Mikihouse blazer, Peter Alexander sequin top, Topshop navy skirt, Uni Qlo tartan tights.

Eclectic Highland

My first look for Autumn. I LOVE the new blazer I just picked up from a charity store for only 800 yen ($8.50 US). The label is Mikihouse which surprisingly is a children's brand! But luckily for me it fits sung as a bug! Its a lovely tight knitted navy wool jacket with gold anchor buttons. Very nautical meets highland fling.
