love comes to me on a melody + A Walk in Tokyo

September 17, 2011

Thrifted oversized shirt, from BF Ruins maxi skirt, hand-me-down leather sandals, Wisdom glasses.

Simple outfit for a simple day. Wearing for the nth time my newest favorite shirt, which I absolutely love because of the way it appears two sizes too big on me. I also adooore the neckline, which is a mix of three different fabrics. (Love that it's a boat neck as well, because it shows off my favorite part of my body -- my collarbones, mehe.) It also has this cute little poem on it about flying. Super adorable. Also, this is probably the only maxi skirt that I own, and this is circa 2005 (or 2004, I'm not quite sure). Found it while going through my closet the other night. I have absolutely no idea why I even have it, as it's a bit too long for me (I wear it above my waist), but I'm really glad I do. I can pair it with any of my oversized tops for an instant summer mori girl look! Definitely my go-to skirt for lazy-yet-I-still-want-to-look-girly days. (Good job, high school self!)

As I've mentioned before in a couple of my previous entries, some of our friends are putting together a fashion show that will be featuring some of the different subcultures of Japanese Street Fashion. It will showcase the works of talented designers such as Catherine de Jesus of A Little Decadence and Cyril Lumboy (who many of you might know as Dolldelight, my lolita muse from day one). I will be walking down the runway for the mori girl set, along with a few other awesome people representing other styles: Yapo, Luisa, Donna, Jin Joson & Kat Carpio of Team Tux, and Leny Astralis, to name a few.

The fashion show is this Sunday the 17th, and will take place in SM Mall of Asia's Main Atrium (near French Baker and Starbucks). There's no entrance fee so everyone's free to watch! Also, the show is on the same date as the second day of the Best of Anime event, but it starts at 1PM so if you plan on attending that, we hope you can drop by since it's pretty near!

Ayala Museum is holding this fashion show to promote their world touring exhibit called Manga Realities. The exhibit will be running from August 16 to October 02, 2011 at the Ayala Museum located at Makati Avenue corner de la Rosa St. Greenbelt Park, Makati City.
