BAND THE BOND

New in: Carven Gingham dress!

By the way, what's this band, actually??
A band? or I should call a bond??


As I'm a Japanese, I thought of 'an obi belt' of a kimono,
but it looks like an Arabian headpiece or painted elephants
I saw in Thailand. Could be a mustache??
I guess this dress is so unique and that originality mainly
comes from this lovely mystery.

H&M CONSCIOUS EXCLUSIVE 2014

The third season of H&M Conscious Exclusive now launched in store.
Featuring Amber Valletta the collection was inspired by flamenco
and bohemia, made in high quality fabrics with intricate details.

It's hard to believe that they are all made from sustainable materials.
Baubles are crafted out of recycled plastic beads(!!) and organic
cotton.
All the items are luxe and look so dramatic, I love the feminine silhouette with contrasting masculine details...they just fit my taste!

KALEIDOSCOPE

When I saw this printed top, it reminded me of a kaleidoscope.

Just like the image I saw in younger days playing with my favorite one,
I mixed different flavors...such as floral/geometric print, bold stripes,
and a bauble necklace to add a toy-like tinny spice.

NAKED PUNCH XX

I went a bit crazy.......
Don't laugh, but I had my nails painted with female body parts.

When ordering, I always leave everything to the nailist,
She's insane and does something that others never do.

 I know it's crazy, I feel awkward when asked 'what's on your nails??'
yet they look so beautiful and give me some artistic inspiration
though I can't show them to my mom...

BLOCK LACE

Happy Monday, everyone!!

Today I paired a block-lace dress with lacey tights & lacey shoes.
I was completely obsessed with these Dolce&Gabbana heels
for the first sight I saw on the runway archives.
But you know...the price....was way extravagant($1000!!) back then.

And a year or so passed, as found them at the great boutique yoox
last week, I thanked for the luck of a treasure hunt and had a deal
for the discounted price; $300!!

The exclusive sale 'Circle of Frineds' is still on at yoox,
so hurry to the site and get an account for your own luck!!

STRIPE STORY

I suppose I'm a stripe lover.
Whenever I come across striped pieces, they make me walk forward
and hold them almost instinctively.
Actually I already have a large amount of striped tops that fill one
shelf of a drawer.
So I rotate them, rain or shine, choosing one from a shelf-ful stripes.
