Rickzilla

Yesterday I met up with fellow Carte Blanche X girls Arissa and Wendy (who are visiting Tokyo Yay!), Tokyo blogger Mai-chan, and a few more friends and we went to an awesome private sale with brands like Anne Demuelemeester, Dries Van Noten, Nina Ricci, Rick Owens, Sacai, Sacai Luck, and Superfine. It was a madhouse but so worth it.

Check out the pic!

Since I couldn’t resist all of this fashion treasure, I decided that it would be an early Christmas present to myself and ended up purchasing my first Rick Owens jacket and Anne Demuelemeester dress and top. I am so excited about my R.O. jacket as I probably would of had to save a long time to get one at retail value.

After the sale my friend Hiroko from Pred PR took us to the Rick Owens store in Aoyama to check out “Rickzilla”. What is “Rickzilla” you ask? Well let me show you…

It is a huge Godzilla inspired wax figure of Rick Owens, hair and all…

I was actually quite disgusted by Rickzilla, but I think that was the purpose. It is a big (expensive) joke by Rick. There are actually only 3 in the world and are travelling around the Rick Owens stores. The other 2 are of a realistic Rick Owens and a peeing Rick Owens.

Besides Rickzilla at the store in Tokyo, the staff informed us that it was Rick Owens’ birthday! Can you believe he is 50 years old!? So they were serving champagne and in the spirit of birthdays, I had a glass at 3 in the afternoon, which was actually the first thing I had to eat all day because I was busy.

Rick Owens M&Ms not for sale ;)

Yesterday turned into a a great day for fashion, shopping, and my closet!

And it don’t stop

This year my Halloween celebration ended up being 4 days long! I’m usually not so avid about Halloween as I tend to stress out on what to be and buying a costume and whatnot but this year was probably my best Halloween yet! Not only was it filled with costumes and make-up and friends and parties, it was the easiest and cheapest Halloween to date.

Here’s a run through of my HALLOWEEN transformations from the weekend~*

BOO!

ROBOT girl
You bet I was doing the robot all night long!
Domo Arigatou Mr. (Miss) Roboto!

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all doing good! It’s that time of year where the seasons are changing and its easy to catch a cold so make sure you stay warm and get lots of vitamin C.

Recently I purchased this awesome hand wear at a little Ethnic shop in Shibuya. It caught my eye straight away and I had to buy it. It’s from India and it’s beautiful! I can’t wait for the next time I can wear it out! Maybe to the next party! I absolutely love that it connects all 5 fingers instead of only 1.

Talk to the hand cuz the face don’t give a…♥

School’s out for the summer

Heya! So I JUST finished taking my last final exam for the summer semester!!! Which means…I’m officially on summer vacation!!!!! And only 5 more days until my summer trip!!! The days are ticking away! It was the first time for me to take a summer semester and it’s a full semester packed into 2 months. The classes are longer, but are totally doable if you only take a few. I think if you tried a full semester you would die. The beginning of the semester wasn’t bad because I was trying really hard in all of my classes but by the middle to end it was getting tough because the weather was getting nicer and all I wanted to do was go on trips and to the pool and lounge around. haha

I actually thought that it was already Wednesday and I had finished school! Which means I forgot about my test entirely! Lol

Well you gotta do what you gotta do right? Fully balancing school and work this year has been interesting and I’ve only got a little left to go until I’m free (for a while)! ;-)

Melody
