Cherry Blossom


 Flower crown from Chatuchak Market in Bangkok, dress from Zara in Kuala Lumpur, vintage leather jacket, Isabel Marant sneakers, Zara bag, Prada Baroque sunnies from Sunglass Hut.

Taken two weeks ago in Shibuya, Tokyo, I knew I was missing cherry blossom season so I decided to BE my own cherry blossom tree instead by wearing a flower crown. (more…)

Harajuku Street Style

IMG_0617 IMG_0623 IMG_0621 IMG_0625 IMG_0631IMG_0628 IMG_0606 IMG_0594 IMG_0611 IMG_0616   The last time I went to Tokyo was a bit of a fail as I went with two dead camera batteries, sans charger. This time around, I came prepared, excited to people-watch/snap, and speak my version of Japanese, so I took to the infamous Takeshita Street and Harajuku Street in the Harajuku District. Previously when I had snapped street style shots like in Milan and Copenhagen, I still had energy for the documentary approach, and I felt shy/guilty/awkward asking people if I could take their picture. Those times, it was a little too difficult getting good shots because some of the most well-dressed would slip out of my frame and be gone forever. This time around I decided it was better to lose the shame than lose the shot, and found most of them really liked having their picture taken. My favourite thing about the fashion in this area is how these kids celebrate their style and wear all their favourite things at once. The bolder, the better, and I love that the more conservative Japanese are so desensitised to it. You could literally wear anything, and still be considered pretty normal. The high street is a lot more slick, conservative, chic and polished, and even though it is just a few roads away from Harajuku it’s like a completely different world. Didn’t even bother shooting anything there because it’s hard to be interested still after you have been to Harajuku. I’m sad I just missed cherry blossom season, but I saw more than enough to keep my eyes pretty occupied! xx

I'M WEARING, INSTA-BREED, TOKYO / Monday / March 25th, 2013

Tokyo Quickie

Prada sunnies, skirt, blouse and neckpiece all from Mr Price, shaggy black chubby from United colours of Benetton, Primark leather gloves, Nike Blazer high tops, vintage leather bag from Hong Kong.

Excuse the bad photo quality but I am the silly girl who goes to Tokyo for thirty hours just to shoot street style and gets there with dead camera batteries and no conversion adaptor for my charger. ANYWAY. Thanks to le iPhone 5 and Instagram, this is what I wore when visiting Shibuya and the Harajuku fashion district. I’ll be sharing the rest of my snaps from there soon but if you’re super impatient you can check them out here. 
I actually can’t show you anymore photographs of me there because I tried to be so Japanese that I flashed the “peace” sign pretty much in every image. You would get annoyed. Will be sharing the Instagram photo diary soon though, I’m so excited to show you what I saw!

Sorry I’ve been so absent, since Tokyo I’ve been in Manila, Guangzhou and Shanghai for work and recently treated myself to a little weekend in Istanbul and lots of sleep in between. I can’t keep rocking the “jet lag swag” look, all the flying is taking it’s toll on my body and I have to put myself first for now, March has been (and is going to continue to be) a pretty crazy month. However I’ve got about twenty days leave in April, ridiculously excited to have a break and see beautiful Cape Town again!

Happy Monday everyone :)
