I feel a lot more confident with my closet, I like having a range of colors along with my traditional burgundy and black. I think any girl will feel happy with looking at her closet and seeing it full of clothes. My closet hasn't been this full in ages! I got rid of a lot of clothes that I felt no longer fit my style, and have instead opted for pieces that you wouldn't find anybody in my neighborhood wearing.
I think that's why I loved Nagoya (or cities in Japan in general), I felt a lot more free with my fashion style, while here in socal, you'll only find freedom of fashion in LA because nobody cares what you wear; everybody is kind of odd there anyway, so you won't stand out. My neighborhood in Japan was very conservative, so even there I felt restricted. It was only in the big cities that I felt air to breathe and just dress like how I wanted to.

Southern California weather is somewhat bi-polar, it can never decide what season it is and/or whether to keep to pattern; any socal resident can agree with me on this! I'll wake up with it raining and it will end up being warm and sunny the rest of the day, so I've been confused on what to wear. I've opted for long sleeves and breezy skirts, as a way to get both if it stays cold and/or gets warm unexpectedly
I like the tucked-in look, and if you pair your bottoms right it can even make you look slimmer. I like the trend, but I don't think it's for me; I'm happily okay admiring it from afar, but I wanted to give it 'another go' with this coord.

I've been kind of confused of how to style my hair as of late, so I've been putting it in messy buns for the past week; I desperately need to dye it as well
Been making the most of not having to wear a coat 24/7 since it seems cold weather won't be coming to SoCal for a while, wore this out shopping the other day. I love pairing neutrals with opposite colors; sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't, but it's fun to experiment!
When I was at H&M the other day, I fell in love with this EMODA-esque dress. It literally was screaming my name from across the room, I've never felt this strong for any clothing item; it's always purses for me! Although I'm quite far from even wearing this kind of dress, I feel like this would be my 'final transformation' kind of dress once I'm at my goal weight. I might just go back and buy it so it can even further motivate me, I am just so in-love with it---with my nude pumps, damir ebene LV, shades, and burgundy lipstick, it'd be a perfect outfit.
The left top is from F21 (like the only top I am liking in their store right now, not really into F21 anymore to be honest), and I like it not only because of the pearls and cuffs, but I love the color and although it's a dress-top, I think with some skinnys and black pumps it can be a great outfit. I might just go back and buy it for future spring coords.
I'm not the kind of girl who likes window shopping---I absolutely HATE it--but I like going into stores and picturing how I'd coordinate an item..
This year is almost over and I only have three more weeks of uni and then I'm done, then the next task is moving up to SF. Everything is just coming SOOOO quickly! Do you feel that way as well? I feel like I don't have enough time to do the things that I need to do... although I am excited for Christmas season (yay!). I'm also bringing back 'hit or miss!' series starting this Friday, sorry for totally abandoning it!
Thanks so much for your input on my last post, I'm excited to share my fashion journey with you all
