Cool Girl Chic

Thursday, November 14, 2013

Just when I thought I had my bearings on where to find all the "dope" brands in Japan, I get slapped in the face with an even cooler label. I had heard of Hysteric Glamour in the past and for some reason wrote it off as another Japanese, hipster brand. WRONG! It was actually the kid's line, Hysteric Mini, that caught my attention. After my immediate love affair with the tots line (more on that coming), I fell head over heels for the adult collections. The Japanese luxury brand features tops and hoodies inspired by musicians from the 80's and 90's, artists such as Andy Warhol and garments reflecting the era of grunge and punk rock. Not typically under my style repertoire,  but paired with minimalistic basics and stream lined pieces, the designs are totally hip and scream Cool Girl Chic. Tokyo has so many original brands under it's belt. No wonder it is the home of countless fashion pioneers. Feeling Giddy, LET'S ROCK!

Straight from their Style Book. OOTD inspiration

Loving the Mustard Yellow long peacoat. A fun twist of color away from the traditional gray and black.

Who says flats can't be fab? HG makes flats looker cooler than the flip side of your pillow.

Hoodies are hip, let's call a spade a spade. Wear under your leather jacket and throw some heels on to glam it up.

This sweater would look awesome with leather pants or flared legged jeans.
Varsity Jacket Swag

Love a fab wedged sneaker. Plus snakeskin? Get outta here

Love this sweater for the holiday season. I'd style it with a leather or printed pencil skirt and heels.

Glam up this Skull tee with a structured blazer or tweed trousers.

Let these leopard socks peek out of your ankle booties and roll up your hem a little bit to show them off.

Skull garden pants paired with your Winter knits. Total Cool Girl Chic
Everyone needs a little LOVE your their life.


Harajuku Fashion Video

Friday, November 8, 2013
For the past three and half years in Japan, I have been infatuated with Harajuku Fashion. I've spent countless hours people watching, roaming, shopping and soaking in all that is Harajuku. I even spent my last week of pregnancy with a warm tea and my Mom, as we checked out the amazing ensembles from a corner cafe. Last year, I shot, edited, and directed a small video about the birth and growth of the fashion epicenter of Tokyo. I interviewed one of Tokyo's biggest Stylists, Misha Janette for the scoop on what has made Harajuku such an enormous attraction to tourists and celebrities.

Check it out HERE.

*Please forgive my squeaky narration voice and blabbering, I was never meant for film really.

Nursing Fashion: What Do I Wear Now?

Monday, November 4, 2013
Konnichiwa to my fellow breastfeeding mamas out there!

When I first started breastfeeding, everyday felt like a styling challenge. "OK, I want to look glam and sophisticated. Wait, not that top, I need to have access to the boob. Alright, no to the boat neck sweater and yes to the plunging neck line." The internal dialogue continued for a few minutes, usually with me moving my lips like I am actually having a conversation with someone (weirdo), and some days ending with me just throwing on a v-neck, burn-out tee and calling it a day. As the month's progressed, I finally embraced the fun of strategic outfit planning and found a way around "frumptastic" nursing clothes.

I recently wrote a piece on nursing fashion for Savvy Tokyo, sharing a few tips I learned along the way. Some by trial and error, *note, do not wear solid colored, cotton jersey without breast pads, and some that just really worked for me and my everyday lifestyle. Click HERE to check out the article and the items that I find most useful!
