FAMILY VACATION IN DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

20140530_190828_Richtone(HDR)

I LOVE visiting my family in the Dominican Republic! Although I was born in the states, Dominican Republic always holds a special part of me. I carry it around with me in the freckles on my face and in the light curl my hair makes. If you have never been there, I definitely recommend it. From the beautiful beaches to the amazing food and people that live there, Dominican Republic is sure to make you want to keep going back for more. Enjoy some of my pictures from the trip below.

TOKYO STREET FASHION TRENDS FOR FALL 2011

Tokyo is filled with fashion isnpiration! I travel there as much as I possible can to find all the latest looks and do some credit card damage by buying out all of the stores over there LOL. But seriously the fashion trends that I picked up on while watching this crowd were just obvious right away. The first trend – glasses with no lenses (They call them “Tsubasa Glasses”). They’ve been around for several years, of course, but the percentage of girls wearing them at this event was extremely high. The second trend that was everywhere were gray knee-high socks. You can see several variations of them in the pictures below. Not sure exactly where this very specific trend came from, but it’s hot hot hot and I love love love it 🙂

Pictures are better than any explanation, so go ahead and take a look below.

THE HEP STAR STORE OPENING AT LAFORET, HARAJUKU

The Hep Star is the brainchild of the same design team which created the fashion label Suiren. While Suiren’s focus is high-end and avant garde, its younger, more playful sister brand Hep Star is intended for daily wear. The designers’ aim, according to their website, is to combine “basic wearable clothes, unique patterns, and highly mixable accessories” with “punk, pop, and military details”. The theme of the spring/summer 2011 is “cute cyber punk”, and includes easy-to-wear tunics and dresses – some in floral print – to be paired with leggings or frilly shorts.

While the Hep Star fashion line is intended to be “real”, the opening party on February 17th was out of this world. With the Hep Star making their La Foret debut along with 15+ other new shops, the place was packed with Tokyo’s beautiful, fashionable, and famous (check out Yone, Hello Jonte, and others below). Partygoers ate their way through a mountain of complimentary McDonalds cheeseburgers and the champagne flowed freely while gorgeous models styled in 80s punk-inspired make-up and big hair showed off the brand’s tunics, tees, and leggings.

Here’s all the info on the new shop:

  • What: The Hep Star Shop
  • Where: LaForet Harajuku B0.5F
  • Address: 1-11-6 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan
  • Nearest Station: Harajuku Station or Meiji-Jingūmae Station
  • Hours: 11:00AM – 8:00PM
  • Website: Official Website (English/Japanese)

 

TOKYO STYLE ^_*

IT’S NO SECRET THAT I HAVE A FASCINATION FOR TOKYO STYLE. THE PICS BELOW WILL DISPLAY WHY. THE GIRL’S NAILS AT THE END ARE AN ADDED BONUS….I DON’T KNOW IF I CAN WEAR THOSE NAILS BUT MORE POWER TO HER  😉

ME IN TOKYO….

THOSE OF YOU THAT KNOW ME, KNOW THAT I LOVE  TOKYO. IF I COULD LIVE THERE I WOULD. BUT FOR NOW I SETTLE FOR GOING OVER THERE EVER SO OFTEN. I LOVE THE FASHION, THE PEOPLE AND THE CULTURE. IF YOU HAVEN’T EXPERIENCED IT, YOU HAVE TO. IT TOTALLY CHANGES YOUR PROSPECTIVE ON EVEN HOW WE LIVE HERE IN NYC. BUY THAT FLIGHT AND OPEN YOUR MIND TO NEW HORIZONS. 😉
