Wear all the things

Image
When I was young, I used to hate dressing in layers. Like...if I can get away with just wearing a shirt and jeans even in winter, I would totally do it.

My oh my...your thinking definitely changes when you're older. Now, I wear so many layers somedays that I feel like Joey from that Friends episode where he was wearing all of Chandler's clothes. Also am now the one nagging the kids to always dress properly. Adulthood sucks sometimes:P

Has your dressing changed drastically over the years?

Inspiration: Shinya Arimoto

Image
I first discovered photographer Shinya Arimoto's works in Tokyo Camera Style and was really taken by his photos. I wanted to order his Ariphoto series but they're always sold out, so when I saw his Vol 9 and 10 were available, I jumped on the chance and finally was able to get my hands on them.







Who has been inspiring you lately?

The Carbeth Cardi

Image
Awhile back, I knitted the Carbeth sweater. It's one of my fave knitted items, so I decided to make the cardigan version, and I love it just as much!:)





 Worn with a different outfit



In progress:


Speaking of knitting, I also finished making this hat for my daughter:)



Halloween 2018

Image
I hope you all had a spooky and fun Halloween:) If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know how we really love Halloween in our household...well...me more than anyone:D

Here are the pics from this year's celebration:
 Inspiration for their costumes:

I mentioned before that I sewed my daughter's costume. For my middle son's costume, we bought the hat from Amazon Japan, then bought a coat at a thrift store. I tailored it to his size, then added some gold buttons and the chain.

I went as a character from the movie Priest:D





Sorting the loot


My eldest decided to go out last minute when he saw all the teenagers trick or treating in our area.
Did you guys dress up?

A reboot done right

Image
In the spirit of Halloween, I thought I would post about the latest show I love love love...Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Guys....I binge-watched the Season 1 in such a short time that I literally gave up sleep. Bwahahaha! So worth it though.

I used to watched the show with Melissa Joan Hart, and did like it so I was kinda leery when I first heard of the reboot. Netflix, however, did such a fantastic job in turning it into a much darker and scarier show.

The cast is perfect, from Kiernan Shipka and Ross Lynch as Sabrina and Harvey, to the supporting cast such as  Gavin Leatherwood (Harvey's warlock competiton for Sabrina), Tati Gabrielle as Prudence (the frenemy) and Jaz Sinclair and Lachlan Watson as Sabrina's friends.

Highly highly recommend this show! 5/5

Have you guys seen it?

Next on my Netflix list: The Haunting of Hill House and Riverdale. Let me know if you guys have seen these shows as well!

New in...it's all about the text

Image
I mentioned here that I've been wanting an army jacket-style outerwear. One day, I saw a girl wearing a green parka with some random thing written on the back. Bingo! I wanted a combo of both! It was hard to find the exact thing I wanted until I searched on Amazon Japan (which has become an obsession now) and found this.

Let's all welcome the new addition to my closet:D



Any new addition to your closet?

For all intents and purposes

Image
I love to knit and sew not only because it gives me the chance to be creative and but it also gives me ability to enhance my wardrobe with one-of-a-kind stuff. Not necessarily the best items, but something hand-made is really not as common now as it was before.




Speaking of sewing, I just finished making my daughter's Halloween costume! YASSSS!
