LINE Collection showroom

Do ya'll know about the texting app, LINE? If you don't it's a very popular app in Korea and Japan, and even some of my friends in the states use it to keep in touch with friends in Asia. It's easy to use and I love the variety of character "stamps" you can send to your friends. Anyways, LINE Japan recently started "LINE COLLECTION," which includes many different Japan-based fashion brands, almost like a boutique. The showroom was held in Shibuya Hikarie shopping mall, and I ran into my friend Rika who is also in my agency. Aren't these LINE character water bottles the cutest?

日本の方はLINEご存知ですよね?昨日は「LINE COLLECTION」展示会に遊びに行きました。LINEでのファッション分野として最近立ち上げられて、日本をベースとした様々なブランドが集結したコレクション、ちょっとブティック的な感じでした。すごく個性溢れたブランドが集まっていて、とても面白い展示会でした。ラインのキャラクターもすごく好きなので、良かったです♪同じ事務所のリカちゃんとも合流!そして、前働いてた会社の方々とサプライズの再会ができました。

Farfetch x Unfollow contest - Summer festival style

vest: Forever 21
T-shirt: Le Ciel Bleu
shorts: vintage Levi's
boots: Sam Edelman
bag: Kate Spade Saturday
sunglasses: zeroUV
watch: Fossil

It's almost farewell to summer. But while it's still around, I'm posting a summer festival style that can be worn going into fall. Farfetch Japan asked me to join their contest in collaboration with "Unfollow (#unfollowers)," or innovators who don't follow trends but rather inspire others through their unique style. For the contest, I was asked to create the perfect summer festival outfit using items from their site, and also my own OOTD snaps with items from my own wardrobe. For me, comfort and style are both very important when going to a summer festival - you are most likely standing all day in pretty severe weather, but you also want to look your best. I opted for some casual pieces that weren't too loud but also practical for a day in the sun. And a little bit of suede is perfect for a late-summer festival or event. This suede fringed vest from Forever 21 is one of my favorite pieces I picked up recently.

夏がとうとう終わりを告げようとしています。でも、まだ少しでも夏の湿気が残っている間、この夏フェスをインスパイアしたコーデをアップしとこうと思います。Farfetch Japan より、「アンフォロー」とのコラボレーション企画が開催されていて、そのコンテストに参加することにしました。「アンフォロワー(#unfollower)」とは、真に自分をらしく生きる掟破りなイノベーターたちのこと。今回のテーマは「夏フェス・パーフェクトコーディネート」です。Farfetchのサイトのアイテムを使って、夏フェスコーデのムードボードを作りました。プラス、自分のワードローブを使用して、秋でも着回せる夏フェスコーデを組んでみました。夏フェスは暑い中立つ時間が長いので、動きやすくて着やすい洋服がベスト。カジュアルでスタイリッシュなアイテムをチョイスしてみました。スウェード素材は秋にもぴったりなので、このForever 21のベストはお気に入りです♡

Metrocity 2015 AW showroom

Last week, I was invited to the Metrocity 2015 AW showroom to check out their latest collection of bags and accessories. Metrocity first launched in Firenze, Italy, and has since then made its way to Korea, and now Japan. All of their products are of very high quality, textures and designs. Metrocity told me they recently had an exclusive blogger event in Firenze - I think it's great that this brand is reaching out to bloggers, including myself. And I just love how Jessica Alba is the image model for the brand this year. Thanks always for a great time, Metrocity!

先週、メトロシティーのAW2015の展示会に遊びに行きました。メトロシティーは、イタリアのフィレンチェでローンチされた以来、韓国や日本でも人気が高まっています。全商品はとてもクオリティーが高く、デザインもどれも素敵です!最近、フィレンチェでVIPのブロガーパーティーが行われたそうです– すごく楽しそう!今後のメトロシティーもとても楽しみです♪

in remembrance

It's already been two years since my dad's passing, and it really makes me realize how quickly time flies. But there's almost never been a day where I do not think of him and miss his presence. This is probably the last photo I ever took with him at my college graduation, and I had left for Japan a few months later, and never got to see him in person after that. There are still many things I regret not telling him or doing with him, but I know that I will reunite with him in Heaven. I hope I can make you proud until then. I miss you and love you, Dad.
