We don't ever want to grow up!
Shooting this look gave me nostalgia to the days I was in Harajuku. It's sad to hear the subcultures in fashion are dying in Tokyo. What are we going to do when all the weirdos are gone?
Growing up, Japanese fashion and their subcultures was my main inspiration when it came to practically everything. I obsessed over it, and it became a part of my style as well as a part of me.
How many subcultures are there?
I can try to list them all, but that would take forever. That's how creative their fashion scene is, its inspiring. I guess I'm just a little scared that people will start conforming to one trend / one look. It's sad to see the creativity come to a holt.
I hope more weirdos pop up soon.

How is 2017 treating you?
The new year has been quite tumultuous for me so far, but I am still looking forward. I love the tremendous amount of support I receive from my followers— thank you for your touching words!
I hope we all find what we are searching for this year.
For my first look of 2017, I wanted to show a bit more of my casual side.
I love being comfortable in the clothes I wear and I love outfits that look effortless. It’s less about your outfit screaming “look at me” and more about your comfort and individuality. I haven’t been about the trends for a while now. I’m enjoying the timeless side to fashion with bits of personal flair here and there. What does your casual side look like?
What I’m Wearing:
Long Cardigan thrifted from Good Will
Dress by The Ragged Priest
Rainbow Road Booties from Zooji
Restrained Choker by Delphine The Label
Oh My Ghosh Backpack by Isabelle Batz
Stay tuned for a giveaway with Zooji Shoes this Thursday!
The giveaway goes live on Instagram on Thursday, Jan 12.

For me, 2016 was the year to go out, to explore, and to figure out who I really was. It wasn’t as simple as that, but this year brought me a lot of fortune, misfortune, and everything in between.
Are you guys ready for 2017? I think we’re all a little in denial every time the new year comes around. We trace our steps back to what we did the past year, and we ponder upon them. This past year we have grown, we know more than we did last year, and we’re one step closer to becoming our true selves. We all evolve and change— its a process, and it never stops.
I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions— it’s not an excuse for a fresh start or a clean slate. Instead, it is a reminder to keep maturing and to keep persevering. It’s time for the motivation to kick in! No slacking allowed!
We can achieve anything if we set our minds to it. Let’s make 2017 even better than 2016.

It’s been a faux winter here in Los Angeles…but that’s nothing new. I’m a little bummed that this year’s winter only just kicked in, as it will be gone before we know it. I’m laughing a little because everyone was freezing at the salon today, and the thermostat read 68 degrees. You non-angelenos must hate us, haha.
This outfit set is kind of the perfect winter outfit for LA. It’s breathable, edgy, and still keeps you warm for those “colder” days.
If you don’t live in LA weather, slap on a coat and you’re good to go!
Let’s talk a little about the brand! Nün Bangkok is that edgy, minimal, timeless brand that you can never say no to. I’ve loved every one of their collections to date, and I still rock my picks from years ago.
I promise to bring more updates to the blog! Happy Holidays, babes!

Since I've gone back to school, things seem to have changed tremendously. The world is not the same it was two years ago, and apparently, neither is school. It's the "after school shenyanigans" that keep me sane and from feeling like I'm a slave to school. Remember to keep your moods lifted; Don't drown in your work. Give yourself some fun every chance you can get-- or things will get ugly!
