What comes to your mind when you come across the word 'Japan' ? Let me guess, spirituality, refinement, peacefulness, tradition, beauty, mystery ? I agree. But one thing that is proper to Japan in my opinion is its culture based on contradictions and, I think this is what makes Japan such an fascinating country. Personally, I've grown up listening to what we call J-music and reading manga. Now, my tastes in music might have changed a bit but Japanese Pop Culture always had some kind of influence on me. Come on, don't tell me there wasn't a time you wanted to look like your favorite character from whatever manga/anime it was. I remember when I first got into fashion, I was so obsessed with j-fashion. Do you know the fashion magazine called Popteen ? I used to buy it from the only japanese library in Paris I knew back then. It was full of girly looks that would fit cute teenagers like the ones in all those high school life mangas you might have read. Lots of laces, overly cute accessories, etc. The thing is that I always believed Japan was far ahead from the Occident in matter of fashion. Whereas it could get very eccentric and flashy though original, it always kept a bit of tradition and in a well balanced minimalism. Japanese designers such as Rei Kawakubo, Yohji Yamamoto, Tumori Chisato, Kenzo Takada, Junya Watanabe, Issey Miyake, etc. prove it to us season after season through their admirable work. Here are some street style look from this season's Tokyo Fashion Week that caught my eyes. Tell me what you think of it, okay ?

Sorry for not keeping you updated during summer but I was a bit overload between my internship and my trip to Japan then South Korea (I'd tell you more about this in another article). Today I'm sharing with you guys an outfit from my internship era. You certainly know my taste now, and as usual, black and white are a must. I've been quite obsessed with lace and my obsession is still going strong though wearing it have become more and more difficult these days. The summer heat has now been replaced by a really chilly fall and I just can't get used to it. I miss the warmth of the sun. In the space of two weeks, the temperature has dropped drastically and I don't even know what I should wear.. Can you believe that I'm already starting to wear my turtleneck sweaters ?! I miss chilling around in nothing more than a shirt dress ! I guess I'm more of a spring/summer person than a fall/winter one. What about you guys ?
Stay warm and try not to catch a cold ! x

Remember when I uploaded my first Youtube video ? Well, here's my second one. Actually, it's been a while since I uploaded it but I forgot to share it with you guys on this blog. I don't have lots of shoes but I still wanted to show you guys what kind of shoes I own. It doesn't look like it I know but, in fact I'm a bit of a shoes addict. The only thing that keeps me from not having a thousand of pairs of shoes is that financially speaking, I'm a bit short aha !
