After quite a long hiatus, I’m happy to announce I’m taking a dive back into the blogging world. I’ve been too busy to blog lately (thanks finals) but since I finally completed my first quarter at FIDM, I’ll have more time on my hands. And goodness do I have some really interesting things to show you dolls. There’s lot’s of pretty clothes to see! (Including a little surprise at the end of this post.)
As many of you know, I’ve been on the hunt for velvets. Chokers, dresses, coats, you name it. The most recent addition to my closet is this adorable pink velvet camisole dress. What drew me to it wasn’t just that it was pink, but also because it had lace detailing on it as well. I love playing with different textures and it’s not often you find velvet used with other fabrics. Anyways I’ve compiled a short list of my favorite velvet pieces from this brand, so check it out below! (more…)
Leopard is the biggest fashion trend for AW 2016. It’s not only being talked about in Vogue, Women’s Wear Daily, and Marie Claire, but Japanese magazines as well, like LARME and Popteen. I was never a fan of leopard, but lately I’ve been in love with it. A lot of gals are moving away from wearing leopard in the typical gaudy, Hollywood-esq way. Instead they’re wearing it in a more subdued, girly way. (more…)
Here’s an embarrassing confession: I have never worn acrylic nails. I’ve always wanted to but because of my usually small nails, none of the acrylics in beauty stores fit me. But thanks to Bling Up, my dreams of having beautiful deco nails have finally come true. Bling Up hand-makes nail tips with gorgeous, intricate designs perfect for any girl. You’ll find nails perfect for Larme, Lolita, Gyaru, and everything in between. Since I’m obsessed with pink/black, I knew these nails were perfect for me. They’re not as extravagant as the other nails on Bling Up’s site, nevertheless I love their minimal design. Just a few bows and romantic touches are enough for me. Anyways, click below to read my review on these Pink and Black Ribbon Nails!
Approximately 4-5 years ago, I discovered a brand called “Chibi Bunny.” They were doing a giveaway for some of the cutest bags I had ever seen in my life. The bright pops of color amazed me, and I loved seeing familiar characters drawn in a new way. I didn’t win that giveaway, but I still decided to buy the Strawberry Bunny purse. It turned out to be a great purchase and lasted me years. I used that bag all throughout my schooling, different relationships, new cities, and it never once failed me. I still have it to this day (albeit it’s pretty worn out.) But ever since, I’ve followed this brand religiously.
You could imagine my joy when Chibi Bunny asked me to model the Melty Milky-Way Galaxy Skirt. Seriously this is probably one of the gigs that’s excited me the most. My heart skipped a beat and I nearly died and went to the afterlife. Joking aside, click below to see more of this skirt and my review on Chibi Bunny! (more…)
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved sakura trees/cherry blossoms. Probably because they were pink. Or more likely because I was a huge weeb. I loved magical girl animes like Tokyo Mew Mew, Sailor Moon, Princess Tutu, and oddly enough some violent ones as well like Claymore or Higurashi. I must still have some nerd tendencies in me, shown by the fact that I fell in love with this sakura blossom skirt at first sight. Click the button below to read more! (more…)
If you know me, you’ll know I have a major sweet-tooth. I love cookies, cupcakes, and all things sugary. And like most women, I like jewelry. So to me, nothing is sweeter than dessert-themed jewelry!
Allow me to introduce you to Piece of Cake Jewelry. Founded in Greece in 2011, Piece of Cake specializes in delicious accessories that make your mouth water. Including yummy Cupcake earrings, delicious donut rings, and adorable lollipop necklaces to name a few. (All of which you can buy for 15% off using my discount code “CHIFFON.” 🙂 ) Each item is handmade from scratch with polymer clay; a modeling clay used for art, decorative parts, and other commercial applications. But most importantly, all the miniatures are made with LOVE! Click below to see detailed pictures of these cupcake earrings from Piece of Cake Jewelry. (more…)
Leather is a fabric that is both refined or tough. It can come in the form of classy heels, spiked jackets, business briefcases, etc. Unlike velvet (often associated with women) or houndstooth (usually considered masculine), leather is unisex. In short, it’s a very versatile element in fashion. Every gal needs a leather skirt. This pencil skirt from SheIn (shown above) is my new favorite garment because of the all the different ways you can wear it. Click below to see four outfits I put together using this same skirt.

Ficklewish – A J-fashionsta’s Paradise (besides Japan itself)
As a LA native who’s loved Japanese culture since she was young, I’m in the Little Tokyo district a lot. I’ve spent hours in the Kinokuniya bookstore, the James Irvine Gardens, the LED Portal, and have been to many Harajuku Fashion meets. Recently, my favorite spot in LT has been Fickle Wish. Fickle Wish is Little Tokyo’s newest Kawaii clothing store, filled with popular Japanese brands like SWIMMER, Galaxxy, and Milklim to name a few. While it isn’t the first J-fashion store to exist in Downtown LA, it’s still pretty different and brings a breath of fresh air to local kawaii addicts. Last weekend, I went to Fickle Wish’s Art Market and had a chance to snap some photos. Click below to see more in-depth! (more…)
First of all, let me be 100% honest, the tops you see above and the hat were sent to me. However, I wouldn’t be writing this review if I didn’t genuinely like the products, or felt they were of quality not befitting the price. Bottomline, I got the products I asked for, and am happy with how they turned out. Very happy, actually. (Plus these reviews put my mind at ease.)
Zaful is a site that specializes in trendy apparel for a low price. Choker dresses, leather pencil skirts, and heart sunglasses to name a few. I decided to create two different looks using the items I received. A somewhat grunge look, and a Japanese-style Larme-kei look.
