the delayed Tokyo post

It's been 10 days since I arrived at Tokyo. Exciting and exhausting. Am having a great time here. The locals can't tell that I'm not Japanese if I don't speak, which is kinda fun. The wireless internet here is unreliable, and the mini Asus netbook I brought with me isn't ideal for typing.

I'll be updating my tokyo deets on twitter, see u there!

I've been looking for Japanese or Korean fashion blogs for a while now. So glad that I found these links through Nylon Korea and Fashion Hayley. I'll be going to Tokyo in 2 weeks time, and I'm hoping to snap some street style pictures. Not sure if it's appropriate, but I'm going to try anyways.

Denim cocoon

Can't say I'm not inspired by this denim jacket worn by susiebubble.
But really, it's the oversized cocoon shape and odd embellishment that won my heart.
If you are in Liverpool, check out Raiders Vintage store by Renshaw Street!

What to wear for summer

I usually spend my summer in Malaysia. It gets so hot that makes me want to run around in shorts, vest and flip flops. While doing my usual blog hopping, I came across Taghrid's outfit. Mental note: Vest + Crop Trousers + Heels = summer outfit 101

Packing order

6 tops, 3 shorts, 1 skirt, 1 dress, 1 trousers and 1 cardigan.

I'm trying to bring as little as possible, even if I don't get to shop in the first few days in tokyo, that should last me for a week.
It's not actually a holiday trip, therefore workwear has to go into my luggage too.

By the way, the nude mesh top by Maaike Mekking with 2 semi circles is my latest addiction! Got the matching nude mesh leggings too, they are hidden somewhere in my big fat luggage. Bought them from Beyond the Valley during my impromtu trip to London.

Gotta catch the flight tomorrow morning. See you at the other side of the globe.

Prada Luggage

I swear this is the only picture I can find. From the picture, I can tell that it's available in many colours, made of hard case leather with rollers and have two carry handles by the sides. No other feature specifications. I am so curious of how this Prada travel collection actually looks at all angles.. 360 degree and inside out. This is killing me.

Torn 90s Jeans

Revival of torn 90s jeans by Maison Martin Margiela
Since when was jeans worn like that?

I like the way we can layer and play with combination of coloured leggings underneath these jeans.
