Nicolai Bergmann for FURLA Capsule Collection preview party

If you love decoration flowers, you'll love Nicolai Bergmann's flower and design. The flower designs in a box are very popular in Japan, and last night I was lucky enough to attend the Nicolai Bergmann for FURLA Capsule Collection preview party in Aoyama. Flowers + FURLA bags... an irresistible combination for girls. I don't wear floral that often, but these bags were so cute! This party had a photo booth section, where the guests could get a photo take with their favorite Nicolai Bergmann for FURLA bag in a huge floral frame. Got a picture take with Moeko and Hikaru! The store was so beautiful, and just smelled amazing. I hope my future home will look something like this.. one day. What a dream come true.

You can take a look at Nicolai Bergmann flowers and design site here, and the Nicolai Bergmann for FURLA collection here !

Thom Browne New York 1st Anniversary Cocktail Party

Tonight, I attended the Thom Browne New York 1st Anniversary Cocktail Party in Aoyama. I had a great time with my managers and 2 of the girls in my agency, Moeko and Hikaru. The cocktail party was a success - all 3 floors of the store were open to guests, and there was a photo booth where guests were able to get a printed photo with a life-size Thom Browne dress-up doll (you could choose from several dapper outfits). And I had the honor of meeting Mr. Browne himself at the end - he was so sweet! Of course he was in his trademark gray set-up with the red, white and blue-striped emblem. What a gorgeous brand and party. I think Thom Browne is a new favorite of mine.

I was out all day today, so I dressed up in comfort and style with a hat and my new Steve Madden x Peace Love Shea loafers from Shop Bop. My shirt, knit sweater and hat are all from Uniqlo, and my jeans are from Le Ciel Bleu. I actually got the sweater last winter, but here are some similar black knit sweaters. More cute loafers and other flat shoes here on Shop Bop :)

More photos coming soon from nicolai bergmann x FURLA Capsule Collection Party! Stay tuned!

NEW IN | my fall shoe collection

Some of the shoes I had ordered online finally arrived this weekend. I was in serious need of some loafers and ankle booties, and well, here they are. The more higher-quality shoes I add to my collection, I realize time and time again how important it is to have good-looking shoes.

From left to right:
Sam Edelman Balfour Monk Strap Flats
Sam & Libby Kirstie Chelsea Boots from Target
Steve Madden x Peace Love Shea Ventura Loafers

You can shop for the perfect pair of flat shoes here, or find a pair of cute boots here at Shop Bop.

Shop Bop is my favorite place to go shoe shopping, since it is so difficult to find shoes in my size in Japan (big feet problems).

Have you started shoe shopping for fall/winter? <3

Maybelline After Party for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week TOKYO

Last night, I attended the Maybelline After Party for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo at Le Baron de Paris. It was probably one of the best parties I've been to in Japan, especially because I love Maybelline New York. All the guests were given a sheet with removable Halloween tattoos, and you could have the make-up artists apply the tattoos at the make-up booths. I had a little spider near my left eye, with a spider web drawn in with their Hyper Sharp Liner. So cute! 

There were a couple of familiar faces in the crowd - I ran into my friend Rin Rin, a Harajuku fashion blogger and model. I also finally met Natalia of Tokyoholic, who was kind enough to invite me to the party :) Thanks for a great time, ladies!

I was so thrilled when this package arrived this morning from Good After Nine, a jewelry brand based in Thailand. The animal rings are the cutest, and I can't wait to wear these :) Thank you! More outfit & detailed photos coming soon!

I ended up going to the Maybelline after party for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tokyo last night, I will also be posting photos from the event very soon. 

Have a lovely weekend (Sunday if you are in Japan!)
