I recently went on a trip to Japan and when I was in Tokyo, I had a good shopping day in Harajuku. It was a bit cold so i went with a puffer jacket and mesh top underneath to keep warm. Some of my favourite stores were Kinji for vintage clothing and XLARGE for street fashion.

January Favourites

Starboy by The Weeknd

I think I have been listening to this album non-stop since it came out so it definitely had to be in my favourites. I love the RnB beats and his voice is just beautiful! It’s generally quite a mellow album, I love listening to it while I’m driving.

 

Red Eyeshadow

I recently made an order from Colourpop and purchased a deep red eyeshadow to make a smokey red eye. I was inspired by Lindseyrem‘s ‘wearable dead’ look and have now been wearing the look every time I go out. The eyeshadow itself is very creamy and pigmented and incredibly easy to apply.

 

Fishnets

Fishnets have recently become very popular and I have loved this trend. I love wearing fishnets with basically anything, I just think it adds a really cool element to your outfit. Particularly if they are an interesting colour!

 

Y-3 Platforms

I recently purchased some secondhand Y-3 Platform shoes and have fallen in love with them. They are the weirdest and probably the least wearable shoes I own but I was compelled to buy them because of their uniqueness.

 

DIY Clothes

Years ago I took a fashion class in high school and fell in love with sewing and clothes design. And recently I have gotten back into designing and making some clothes. Buying vintage items and changing them up or designing and making items from scratch has definitely been a favourite activity from this month!

 

TV: A Series of Unfortunate Events and Jane the Virgin

Two TV series I have finished recently have been A Series of Unfortunate Events and Jane the Virgin. There couldn’t be two more different shows but they both were very entertaining. Neil Patrick Harris killed it as Count Olaf in A Series of Unfortunate Events. I loved the whole look of the show with it’s kind of distorted, dark reality. It really reminded me of the dark style of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Jane the Virgin was just a lighthearted drama/comedy which was really fun to relax to and watch. I particularly liked the telanovela style of the show and Gina Rodriguez is hilarious!
