Hi everyone! Thanks soooo much for the comments on the previous post.
Hope you are having a nice Friday!

Today's post is all about the fab dress deftly embroidered with exquisite
floral details.
This dress from Miss Selfridge is the perfect combination of feminity and
As you see the original dress from the link below, you will notice
that I cut the length and took off black tapes to fit my size and taste.
I do often diy my outfits, even labeled ones.
This time I wanted to make it for more casual-use, and lighter for the super-hot
weather in Tokyo.

Hi, everyone! I'm so sorry for the long absence.

I've been away from blogging for almost two months as I got injured
during my trip to Philippines.
I had a fall and sprained my foot. I managed to walk about for two weeks with a swollen foot (almost doubled). And had never known my foot was actually
fractured till I went to a clinic back in Tokyo.
That was a horrible, painful experiment. I got a cast on, and had to put men's size
Birkenstock sandal on the injured foot even at night parties.

Tasted such bitterness, the sweet happiness I'm feeling now is even more special
than before. The foot was healed and I can wear heels!! 
Heels, oh my goodness, I've desperately longed for......!!

Also I'm so happy to be here, coming back to my blogging routine that
gives creative moment to my life.

It was great honor to be invited to Caroline de Maigret at Chanel Ginza
for the style sessions.
I took part in the an-hour talk over her Parisienne styling tips and got
personal advice in the fancied closet filled with Chanel latest ''Metiers d'Art'' pieces.
I was just fascinated by the fabulous items of craftsmanship and my heart
got fluttered by the natural aura of beautiful Caroline!!




Along with the beach side, El Nido has amazing jungles.
Deep forest radiates serene air as leaves and birds whisper.
Even the intense sunlight cannot beat the depth of woods,
it just creates thick shades in contrast.

Hi, everyone!  I do apologize for the lack of the long absence.
I was actually hiding away in the tropical paradise in Southeast Asia.

Elnido, Spanish for ''the nest'' is the place I had longingly dreamt of.
Located in the westside of Phillippines, off the coast islands are only
accessible by boats.
Limestone cliffs that form a Karst backdrop, inlets, clear water,
coral beach, and jungles are found there.

The villas along the shore command this beautiful seascapes 24 hours a day
and enable you to dive whenever you want.
This place was for me the best resort destination ever!

There are quite many positive points of short-bob style.

As I mentioned it was a big leap for me to have my hair cut short,
but I found that I'm picking up feminine dresses more than before.
I do love the style mix of feminine&mannish elements.
Now I'm thinking to try maxi dresses I've hesitated to choose.

clutch: Bruno Magli(also love this pair!)



Mixing bold patterns is always challenging but fun.
I never ever want to look poppy&ditsy, so the point that anchors each item is
quite important. In this look the bold lines of the top and the skirt, the jacket and
the strings of sandals have similarity in colors. And the embellishment around
the collar technically flows onto the beads of the skirt.

Picking out outfits takes time every morning though, I do love the process and know these steps will nourish my senses little by little.

Let me share a new crop from this season!
I do love this stunner ''off-the-sholder top'' that makes the look outright sleek and sexy.
To tell you the truth, I've been working out at a gym for gaining muscle
around blade shoulders. Well, it's still on the way, I've got to do more!
