My closet: since Jan 2011 & PHOTOSHOOT?!


It's been a lifetime since I actually posted up my outfits. Even with my boyfriend here to take body shots for me, I still haven't actually asked him to.

Here is me wearing he same bowler hat for three outfits:

Cardigan: Cinnamon Girl
Floral Dress: TOP SHOP
Belt: F21
Leggings: Not sure but my mom paid a lot for it (hand me down)

Cardigan: Salus
Leggings: Uniqlo
Button down shirt with tie: H&M

Skull shirt: JSG
Chanel necklace: Vanquish
Gold belt material: I don't know but I just found it laying around.
Denim shorts: UNIQLO

My friends and I walked around Daikanyama this past weekend to pass through and see the beautiful rows of cherry blossoms in Meguro-gawa (Meguro River). As we were walking, I noticed an elderly man carrying an old fashion Lubitel camera hanging from his neck. He stopped and noticed that my friends and I were watching and came over to us and ask us if he could take a picture.

Turns out that he was a professional photographer by the name of Herbie Yamaguchi. He studied in the UK and was actually the roommate of Boy George! :O At first we didn't believe that he was a famous photographer until I looked across the see a camera crew pointing their cams at us.

We got interviewed and had a little photoshoot. It was such a great experience to have our picture taken by Herbie and to actually have him use those pictures for his TV program.

Here are the pictures that were broadcasted this past Saturday night:

I've been scanning through his works recently and am really inspired by them. Majority of his photos are in classic black and white. You can check out his works on his official website.

I need to get back on track with my posts. I'm sooooooo behind with so much to share!

Someone give me some motivation! haha Hopefully, I'll get some rest this weekend and update a little more.

Have a great weekend ;3

That is so cool! What a random chance of fate haha Btw you look so tall! Are you taller than 5'6? Or maybe it's because Japanese people are average like 5'1? lol
Bea said…
I really love looking at your photos on a bowler hat. kk~ It's my frustration. I was having thoughts of buying one but I'm scared it might not look good on me. T.T


Yes, I was really busy these past few weeks. I had no off. I just took an off for 5 days b/c I might get sick..

And my phone is quite old but I love it. haha~ The cam is not good but the functions are good. :)
There are tons of Nokia in the Philippines and in different models so it's quite hard to choose. I live in Bataan btw. ^^

suki pooki said…
Thanks for the sweet comment! If you're looking for nude I would definitely recommend the mac viva glam gaga 2 one! ( the one I have hahaha) if it doesn't work out you can always return it too =) But make sure you double check with the mac policy, it might not be the same with every country =S

Yes, another reason why I love sephora, no intruding sales associates! They usually leave me alone so I can browse all I want =D
suki pooki said…
P.s I have to say this again but I love your outfits, Im starting to like the second one more than the first lol but florals will alway win my heart!
