Hello everyone! I know it’s been a hot minute, and I’m sorry (T ^ T) I’ve been really sick since Friday! Today I finally feel a little better! (I had to work so I didn’t give my body much rest!) so when I’m home, I try to stay in bed…
Anyways! You know how I told you about my new job? My good friend Sylvia and her boyfriend Francis (pictured above) decided to come visit me and take some photos in the shop! So I took a quick lunch break and Sylvia took some beautiful photos of Heirloom Vintage ! My boss, Masa Ono, has amazing style and taste and I think it really translates well in the way he decorated the place ! I love the Americana feel to it (I’m always playing western music in the place haha) and it just feels very comfortable.
Also! This was my first time meeting Francis! I’ve been shooting with Sylvia for awhile and she would always talk about him and show me pictures, so it was great to finally meet! They are such a cuuuuute couple! I mean not in a sappy kind of way, but the compliment eachother so well, and it’s like they are always on the same page, idk I think that’s pretty cool! And they both are really artistic and have great style! You should check out his blog! He does great menswear fashion!
Also! I was just featured in the New Cosmo Girl Indonesia!
It’s in Indonesia, so I’m sorry but it’s still pretty awesome! I was so excited to receive it in the mail! Thanks again Cosmo Girl for featuring me!
Anyways I hope you all are having a great week! For my cosplay readers, it’s fanime this weekend and I’m sad I can’t go but for those of you going have a grand ol time!

“How do you like it? How do you like it? ” hahah sorry! That song has been stuck in my head all week! How has y’all’s weeks been? Mine has been very hectic, working at the vintage store is so wonderful! It keeps me so motivated to continue to do stuff when I’m not working! I’ve also had a really important meeting this week about something big! I’ll be able to tell you all later about that ☆〜（ゝ。∂） ! I’ve been also working a lot more on cosplay stuff! Which is exciting, I’m really honing my craft as a designer I feel like!
Anyways, on to my outfit! The precious Sylvia and her awesome boyfriend Kenny, stopped by the shop on Tuesday and spent a lot of time there keeping me company! We decided to take a few photos on my lunch break in and outside the shop! (Indoor ones coming soon!) I think they turned out so uber cute! I got this dress from Jet Rag Vintages 1$ Sunday Pile sales. (I get there early and wait for them to open new vintage and fight for the good stuff!) I was so happy when I got this! It was quite long, so I altered the hem to make it a baby doll and I really love the turn out! The trim and color is so feminine and amazing! Also my mom gave me these new adorable glasses that will pretty much go with EVERYTHING. In my wardrobe! I was so happy when I received them! And I think the glasses and the dress are the perfect pair!
Well I hope you all have a great Thursday! I have to clean my loft and continue to work on cosplay stuff! Talk to you soon!

Hello everyone!!! I hope you are all doing alright! I know Thursday is ridiculous for having my first post of the week >.<. But!!!! I recently got a job at Heirloom Vintage in little Tokyo and it is amazing! My good friend Olive hired me and my first day was Sunday and its such a cool job! I get to do all the online stuff, and I will be organizing the etsy shoots and such whist managing the store front. My boss, Masa, he is so nice too! He really trusts Olive’s and mine opinions and tastes which is really awesome. Don’t worry though! I’ll still be blogging a lot! Just was getting settled!
Also, I played some card games recently with friends, but the most vexing was defiantly poker… Whenever I played it in video games I never knew what I was doing and would only win by chance. I actually had to be taught the rules and it’s a really fun game! You have to be really good with math (which is not my strong suit) and have a good memory! There are actually a lot of proficient women poker players like stylish poker diva Liz Lieu . It’s really such an interesting “sport” or game I guess more so. But it really takes a lot of skill to be good at o.O . Here’s to more fun nights with drinks and card games!
I want to thank Banggood.com for this adorable sweater! The little pink flowers make any outfit so adorable! I love bubble skirts as well so I thought it was a great pairing! my aunt Michelle gave me this skirt about 4 years ago and it was really long. So I shortened it to make it more bubbly! I accidentally washed it one day and it’s wool so it shrunk ALOT so it’s almost an impossible size to wear or style with. I have a really small waist luckily, but thankfully it’s poofy for my big hips >.<
Anyways I hope you all have been having a great week! Some secret and exciting things are happening for me soon! So happy and excited!

HOORAY! It’s Friday! Hahaha finally my day off! It’s been a very crazy week! I still need to alter a bunch of stuff for a shoot I’m styling tomorrow (T ^ T)! Oh well! A lot of crazy stuff is coming up for me and I’m just so excited! (Can’t wait to share!)
Anyways, I really love this outfit! You can tell I have a love for angora sweaters (just so soft!!! |(￣3￣)| ) and the little beaded bows just match so perfectly with the pink dress Banggood.com sent me!!! Of course I’m sporting my favorite deandri’s (per usual) with this kawaii outfit! The all knowing Sylvia taught me the name of the flower pictured in these pictures! They are called bougainvillea! (I never ever knew that) they make me so happy and relaxed, it’s like the epitome of spring!
On a side note, I’ve become a contributor for The Drifter and the Gypsy for the DIY hair features!! My first one was published today!
Please see the full post here on how to achieve the ” baby doll elf ” hair style ☆〜（ゝ。∂）
I hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Good morning everyone. I hope that you are very happy and excited for the new day! I got a piece of bad news last night… One of my favorite teachers from high school had passed away. He was my freshman English teacher, and at the time I had a lot of turmoil in my home life. I got bullied constantly, I didn’t feel like I was smart, all I focused on were my crappy manga drawings. My teacher was one of the first people to push me, to talk to me like a normal human being, to make me realize I was capable and intelligent. He had a very interesting way of teaching, and I always had a retained that impression of him. He would ask a lot of questions, and listen. When I would draw in his class, when I was done, he would ask if he could have my drawing. I would relinquish it to him and later find it hanging on the classroom wall… (And he kept them on the wall even after I graduated.) He taught me so much about real life, in his indirect ways that I wouldn’t have learned until much later. Finding out about his death, makes me think about my own mortality, and the others around me that I care about. Or even just people that left an impression on me or taught me something about life… And I realize how significant every persons time in my life is… With that being said, RIP Mr. Frey .
Anyways! Sorry for that sad tidbit. I really haven’t had anyone pass away in my life that was remotely significant, so this effected me… I hope you all understand!
About my outfit, I received this adorable blouse from Ecugo.com and I really wanted to do something cutesy/adolescent with it! The print and color really reminded me of a toadstool! So I thought that was the perfect title for this post! (Because of course I am a princess hahaha ) (￣◇￣;) . I have had these shortalls for about 2 years? (Bought them in April of 2011) I got them at this thrift shop in Anaheim called savers, and they were really cheap! I love how cute they are! But I was just waiting for the opportune time to use my shortall collection (because I really have a collection hahaha) and the timing just couldn’t be any better! I love wearing these with one strap down or both down. (I love both straps too but I also like variety! ) these are a little small, the short part is suppose to poof out a little more but my legs are too big >.< ! Oh and I got these lovely socks from the 99¢ store!!!! I love Em so much! Of course my fabulous white Deandri tequila boots as well! Perfect kawaii outfit!
I hope I wasent too much of an earful today! (Or eyeful?) I really do hope your Thursday is going well!

Hey everyone! I hope everyone’s Mondays went smoothly! I got to shoot with the lovely Sylvia Gunde again yesterday! I always love seeing her! (Can’t wait to show you guys those photos! ) and then I had to drop off some pulls from shoots, and then answered emails the rest of the night… Hopefully I can get some creative stuff done today (cosplays, drawings, designs)! (＞人＜;). Anyways, onto my outfit! It’s been so hot lately that sheer fabrics and eyelet shorts are really a staple! I love wearing heels too with blouses that are kind of too big for me because the fabric just flows ! ~*~*~*~(＾ω＾）I usually don’t wear much jewelry (for fear of losing or breaking it since I constantly take it off cause its kind of uncomfortable…) but plastic jewelry is kind of perfect for me! I kind of really like the way it looks too! Sometimes it can be cheesy and gaudy but a bracelet or two I think is fine ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ. Anyways hope you all have been doing well and you like my outfit!
