Girls love sleepovers. And so do Milla and I.
We ate some yummi food, had some wine, laughed at American cops busting people on cable tv, watched&commented a sexy Benicio del Toro and a charming Sean Penn in 21 grams, and finally took some pictures. Milla's wardrobe is a real treasure chest. I will post some pics later. I don't have all the pictures, because my lame D&G usb key is lame.

You cannot really tell, but I'm wearing denim on denim. It made me feel alive. Manly and sexy, paired with some brown lace-up shoes and the Porco Rosso glasses. And my legendary fake fur jacket.
Outfit: Jacket/H&M Denim shirt/Ralph Lauren(vintage) Shoes/Fausta Moretti Denim/Evisu

What a good day. This week will be awesome, I feel it. Sakura (cherry blossom) and awesome parties. Tokyo can be great, at times. I just hope I can find my digital camera, and take some pictures.

A couple of days ago, I met my dear Milla in Shibuya. We strolled around Shibuya, as usual, and at some point we went to Tokyu Hands. We bought some seeds, she got a really cool Lomo and I fell in love with some sunglasses.

I don't really want to tell you that I found these lovely glasses in the "party goods" section. Oh so pretty. 1500JPY of madness.

They reminded in 0.5 seconds of the legendary Porco Rosso. Despite being a pig, the little dude has a great sense of style and a warm heart. Afterall, he's Italian.

A pig livin the good life.

Porco Rosso is an animation movie by Hayao Miyazaki, and I really suggest you to watch it.

I'm on a mission now. I will put togheter some Porco Rosso inspired outfit. I think I will go for the aviator-look.

Hérmes. Love the foulard and the brown tones of this look.

Cherry girl


My DSLR virginity?


Say hello to my new Nikon D5000 and my dirty 315 yen mirror.

Today, I was supposed to recive this cutie directly in my post, but the website I ordered it from denied the order, because of my foreign credit card. God bless Japan. I was really upset, especially since they canceled the order yesterday night. I decided I'd get my new camera today, no matter what, and I headed to Bic Camer. They saved my day. I paid almost the same price I'd pay online (and got a five year insurance for the baby), plus the tiny Nikoman presented me with a kick-ass camera bag. I treated myself with a delicious Salmon and Shrimp salad afterwards. Well done, Alice. Words can't describe how hyper I am right now. I just have to figure out how to take decent pictures.

I love love soda. Actually Guava Nectar is not soda, but who cares?

Rainy day.

Had to go to Uni to have some paperwork done, then headed to Harajuku for some thrift shopping. Nice finds. Deep-fried pork at night killed me.

Shinmai Creator's Project 2010

Tokyo Fashion offered a coverage of a Shinmai Creator's Project, featuring four young brands, a kick-off for Japan Fashion Week. Shinmai (新米) is the Japanese word for "new rice". Rice has a great importance in Japanese culture, and the harvest of fresh rice is a greatly awaited moment in Japan.

The Individualist A/W 2010-11

Soft collars, loose scarves and fitted blazers for men, shorts and leggings for lost Cinderellas.

Fabiola Arias A/W 2010-11

Plum lips, impressive headpieces and feathery fabrics for a bon-ton girl with a crush on Chanel.

A Degree Fahrenheit A/W 2010-11

Urban warriors in black, metropolitan heroines in red tights. Monks-alike capes, and a re-styled trench becomes a sexy leotard/monokini.

Akane Utsunomiya A/W 2010-11

Calm tones and nudy colors for a lazy Autumn, although some neon pieces are still showing under the one-pieces. A reminescence of a Summer that has yet to come.

Donwn the Rabbit-Hole

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, `and what is the use of a book,' thought Alice `without pictures or conversation?'

A little conversation, and many pictures is what Alice is aiming for. Let her guide you through her personal Wonderland, and the odd aesthetic sense of this material girl lost in a material World will do the rest. Please accept this invitation to her Mad Tea-Party. Bring some sun glasses, just in case.
