Brit Wrap Strap Booties by Jeffrey Campbell

Yes, again.. I found a pair of boots I want!!!!


Brit Wrap Strap Booties by Jeffrey Campbell $230

I have a pair of black short boots by Pour la Victoire, so I think I should get the brown ones.. but the black ones are really attractive too!!

Jeffrey Campbell is one of my favorite shoe brands. On my Giveaway Post, I asked everyone's favorite shoe brands and I newly found Chie Mihara from Kristin & Laura, Naya from Ping. Cindi's favorite is Miss Albright. and I LOVE Miss Albright too!!

I like platform with chunky low heels. I don't have good balance and I have to carry my daughter sometimes.


Chie Mihara Catame Pump $455

Naya Briar $140

OMG, I am droooooling for those two pairs!! Chie Mihara collection is amazing but bit pricey.... sad sad...

I try not to buy high heels but sometimes I buy them thinking, maybe one day, I will wear them..  but probably once.. or twice.. then back in closet... forever...and I will have more shoes that I want to get..


These are the pair I bought last year and worn only once then now I regret buying them because it's too high for me to wear.... but they are super cute!! I put them on when I tried Winsor Knot Dress in past post.


Dolce Vita Halo Sandals $160

If anyone is interested in buying them from me... let me know!! They are soft leather, size 8, TTS!!
They come in black, gold, white as well, and you can find them at endless but the color natural was sold out last year!
 
 
I was checking through my closet and I found this dress for today's outfit :D
 
 
Dress & Belt: Anthropologie
Tank: Eddie Bauer
Socks & Shoes: Urban Outfitters

If the dress gets 2nd cut, I am getting the navy!!

Belts for styling long torso :)

Yesterday, I went to return the Florid Diamonds Dress and  the Billie Shirt. They were "okay, maybe I like it?". There are SO MANY amazing pieces at Anthropologie, I should just get what I love!

Thank you for Ping that reminded me that in the last post comment!


But then.. I went to check out the sale room (yes, I went there yesterday..lol) and I found another belt I want in my closet! I actually wanted this belt in brown but they were gone and I bought a brown belt yesterday, and this green was very attractive!

Tumbled & Forged Belt $29.95 (was $58)
 
Oh and thanks to Laura, I found the photo of the belt I bought yesterday :)
 
Three Beacons Belt $19.95 (was $34)
 
And I actually bought this yesterday but forgot to mention.
All Hours Belt $19.95 (was $32)
 
 
I am obsessed with Anthro belts actually. I like the detail, color, and material.
Why??

Because... I have a long torso.. and Tyra Banks in America's Next Top Model was teaching us how to style all the different body types and for long torso, belt was the key item! Ha Ha! I am that simple :)


I missed out on the Season's End belt when it hit on sale. Although.. it is full price again and my size S is GONE! If you see it in your store, please let me know!! I had never seen it in my local Anthro!!
 
Season's End belt $58 (buy here)

And I am waiting for this to go on sale. :D

Enchanting Eyes Belt $54 (buy here)

BTW, I received the maxi skirt from Portland, OR.

Seamingly Maxi $98 (Sold Out online)


I ordered my normal size small, but I think I can go for XS. It is very long.. If I wear heels, that'd be fine but otherwise... 

I am searching XS, if you see any, please let me know!

Anthro Summer Dresses!!

Yay! It's the sale day!!


I wanted the Florid Diamonds Dress but it wasn't in my NEED list. I didn't buy it when it got the first cut.. then today, it got the second cut! I knew it would! :D

Here is the quick fitting photo! I wanted to try it on at the store but my daughter told me not to go in..lol so I just had to buy it and try at home.

It comes with a ribbon(?) to tie back or around the waist but it doesn't really work.. I mean if I try to use it, the dress didn't look good. So I took it off, and used a belt instead.



Should I keep the dress??

I bought this belt also. Does anyone know the name of the belt?
The retail # 18903021 Originaly $34 and bought for $19.95.



There are some dresses that I LOVE!!
The Winsor Knot Dress went on sale while I was in Japan. I love the knot detail!!


The Tied Down Dress and the Take Action Dress are still full price.  I was hoping to get PA today but oh well.. I love them so much... I don't say this often.. but..they are worth full price!!




These two items are on the way from Oregon (Seamingly Maxi) and New York (Eastpointe Garden Top)!!
Anthro canceled my order of the Seamingly Maxi, so I called stores and had it charge send!




I hope they will arrive safely...

Before★After

Yes!! I finally got my hair done!!
日本語の読者の皆さん★ 写真見てね♪

It's been couple months since I had a trim and color...

Every time I go back to Japan, I go this wonderful salon in Kyoto, Hair Qril that does special head spa!! I found the salon when I lived there with my husband ( I was pregnant ) and since then it's my favorite relaxation spot!!

They are amazing! I had to bring my daughter with me and his wife (his assistant) was watching her whole time!
I brought a laptop with bunch of kids show but half of the time, she was playing around with her..

This is my hair color before it's done.




I have lots of hair and they are thick!
I got many many layers. :)


Then color..I like bright orange color and he knows what I like.

Around this time, my daughter started to walk around..

Head spa



Special mud hair treatment with aroma steam after shampoo. I am addicted to this spa..


I was totally relaxed until..


lol


Then head massage. O-M-G! I was in heaven.


After the head spa, I moved back to the seat, then gave me a head-shoulder-back massage which I also love. This whole thing (spa & massage) takes about 30 minutes.


I was amazed how he set my hair! He used dryer but never used a brush!! And made some amazing curl around my face.


I love the color and the shine!!



If you ever plan to go to Kyoto.... Go there!!
Shampoo, cut , color, plus head spa, aaaaaaaaaaaand amazing massage, it was only like 15000yen!!!!!! (No tip required in Japan!! If you want to tip them... buy something!! lol)


シャンプー、カット、カラー、プラス 究極の泥トリートメント(アロマスチームつき) それからマッサージもちょ~~~~~~~~~最高で・・ 15000円くらいでしたよ!!!

京都に行ったらぜひぜひっ 私は日本に帰るたびに行ってます!!!
娘の面倒まで見ていただいて・・・・

んもぅ~~~っ

大好きっ!!

They are AMAZING!!!

OOTD 50's?

My husband asked.. "Do you think you are from 50's or somethin'??"


Haha! I like vintage look!!

I need a jacket to go outside because it's very windy today.. but I like this summery outfit!!
Amazingly, I am NOT wearing any Anthro today!! (Oh, wait.. this ring is from Anthro..)

I found this retro skirt on sale at Urban Outfitters the other day. I tried it on, and instantly fell in love! And this blouse is from H&M. This is sooooo cute!! I'd recommend it to everybody! I added one of my favorite belts in this outfit. This is from UO, bought last year.

I used to shop a lot at UO until I got addicted to Anthropologie. But I guess I should check it out sometimes!
