Kawaii International Ep. 03!!

Hey Everyone! I’ve been working on an international TV show called “Kawaii International”. It showcases “kawaii” culture from Japan to all over the world. It is a really fun TV show and every time we learn so much. “Kawaii” means “cute” in Japanese and it has taken off onto it’s own culture with fashion, brands, hair and make-up, accessories, music, and even slang!

Our guests for Ep. 03 are fashion blogger from Malaysia, Cheesie, and fashion model from U.S., Rin Rin.

A fun “kawaii” quiz!

If you thought you might have recognized her, you’re right! It’s fellow Miss X, Misha! I love her new wig brand PLUMB!

With Cheesie! She is so cute and so sweet! Please check out her blog here: http://cheeserland.com/

With Rin Rin! She’s a Cali girl just like me! She was also very cute and sweet! Please check out her blog here: http://ameblo.jp/angel-rinrin/

Look how cute this shoe is!

On Ep. 02 we learned how to make D.I.Y. Kawaii items and Rie-san makes things out of wool. She brought us a start-up kit so we could try it ourselves. Thank you so much!

Versace for H&M = Love at first sight

Last night I had the amazing opportunity to go to the H&M press room in Tokyo to get a sneak peek at the new Versace for H&M Collection. With so many bright tropical colors and eye-popping patterns, the new collection is absolutely amazing! Right away, I fell in love the eccentricity of the Versace for H&M Collection. It reminded me of Miami, Florida in it’s glamorous 80′s and made me want to be on a beach somewhere, listening to live music sipping on a mojito.

With half of the collection dripping in bright colors and patterns, the other half is cool and glamorous with black leather and studded designs. Not only is the clothing absolutely rocking, the accessories and bags are pretty fab too! Oh, did I mention the men’s collection is just a awesome as the women’s?? For me, the whole point for fashion is to have fun and feel good in the clothes you are wearing and this collection is all fun baby! The colors and the styles of the pieces only further accentuates the young, vibrant, iconic feeling of the Versace for H&M Collection.

The official launch was held last night in New York with many famous celebrities and fashion icons, including Prince who performed at the after party, all gathering together to see what the Versace for H&M Collection had in store.

I think this collection is for people of all ages; it will remind the older crowd of their younger days, when they used so much hairspray and tanning oil, and it will excite the younger crowd of the glamorous days that we never were able to experience.

I was so inspired to see such a mass of exciting pieces in one collection! And being sold at a store with a price point that is completely affordable!

Versace for H&M Collection is by far my favorite collection of this year!!!
