Hi LOVEs! Happy June!
If you have been following my blog over the past two years, you probably remember the wildest hairstyle I had in my life - A side shaved look! Since I always take extra care to dress up from head to toe, the hair style and hair color I have at the time definitely influences my outfits. When I had a side- shaved hair, my clothing style was more mixed with grunge and street style, and I LOVED IT! Because I enjoy trying out any kind of style, I had a lot of fun styling them! Yet, after I decided to grow the shaved part, I again slowly switched what I wear. So it's been forever since I last wore a grunge and street mixed style!
This Alexander Wang x H&M T-shirt dress is still by far my favorite, even though it seems like the hit is fading away and everyone is now super thrilled with the new H&M collaboration brand. But this dress is perfect for me to just throw on and there is a lot of ways to style it! For this edgy street style look, I paired it with some strap heels to give a touch of sexiness and then I added a bunch of gold accessories. I know that camo jackets are kinda burned out, but I've kept this jacket because it's a versatile item. It looked amazing with the dress and added a bold and edgy vibe, which I further accented with some dark purple lipstick.

Let's talk about a bit of my new favorite hair do! I am totally in love with the topknot hairdo. It was actually the first time for me to try it, but I was amazed by how easy it is to style and how cute it can look! I really love how this topknot hair adds a playful effect to the look! What do you think about this hair?

By the way, I apologize if there are a lot of pictures to look through today! James and I were just so stoked with the location, lighting, and how everything is turned out on the camera! It was so hard for me to narrow them down! Hopefully you enjoy them, though!

Have a lovely day, cutie pies!

Hi LOVEs!
I don't keep track of how many times I've mentioned this, but I am a serious sucker for shoes!!! Recently I snagged a perfect pair of summer sandals that completely stole my heart. I am wearing them in today's post and got them from JustFab! Do I have to tell you how gorgeous these are? I am in love with anything that mixes the sexy and sporty vibes, and these sandals have everything -- mesh insets, fun cuts, and open back counter. What I love the most about this pair is that they give me a super flattering profile on my legs! You can wear them from day to night and effortlessly go with any look! 

For today, I styled a look that has a feminine touch by pairing an off shoulder crop top and midi skirt. Off-the-shoulder tops are so pretty and trendy right now and if you need a right amount of sex appeal, they add subtlety by showing off your decolletage. If you are petite like myself, it's a great top you should have in your closet, especially in seasons where you don't need any outerwear to cover it!

JustFab is having a MAJOR memorial day sale with 50% off site wide. If you like the pieces I am wearing as much as I do, you can get them for only $19.98! How amazing!
I wish you a wonderful memorial day!

Hi LOVEs! 
Today's look is a bit different from my regular looks, as you may have noticed! Yes, I am wearing only white and black. (Ignore a smattering of that color on my bag :p) I believe I've mentioned quite a lot that I love this two basic hue combination as much as more vivid colors. Thankfully, my cool hair (now I have a "REAL" unicorn hair!!!) doesn't make any look so boring and dull, and it's a great reason to wear more black and white looks! I have to admit that my hair colors definitely influence my outfits so much. 

It was a Saturday when I wore this look, so I didn't wanna put so much effort to dress up -- more like losing fit while still remaining stylish. Skorts seem off-trend item, but for me they are an ultimate piece, especially during this time of the year. They are effortlessly chic, versatile, plus simply can go with anything from the crop tops to sweaters to blouses.
Whenever I go for an ensemble without prints, I always make a focal point to the details, which is why I'd like to share a jewelry brand I came across recently. This lovely handmade choker is from IO Collective, specializing in semi-precious and precious gems and metals. I've been obsessed with the cocker and I've been wearing it countless time already since the day one I got!  You know wearing chokers is a huge trend right now!! I love how the choker looks very pretty by itself but can mix and match with other jewelry I already have.

Hope you like today's "colorless" look!
Happy Tuesday, cutie pies!

Hi LOVEs!!!
How was your weekend? I hope you all had a wonderful mother's day weekend and that you could share it with your beloved mom! I wasn't able to celebrate this sweet holiday with my amazing mama due to the long distance between Seattle and Japan. How sad... It sucked, and then seeing a lot of fun and smiling pictures of everyone with their mama bears definitely made me miss my mom so much more, yet those photos put a smile on my face at the same time! I used to fight a lot with her, like literally every single day, when I was a teenager. However, those memories have deepened my gratitude toward her and strengthened my love, especially now that I've lived so far away from her for almost 6 years. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder."
Although I couldn't spend time with her, my weekend was pretty crazy yet undoubtedly amazing! Did a lot of shooting, so I can't wait to share the sets with you guys soon! Don't forget to follow along for future fun moments on snapchat (@fashionsitaika) !!!!

What's your all-time favorite piece in your closet? For me, I would surely choose this pansy-printed trench coat with corset lacing details on the back! It didn't take me so long to fall in love with it due to its extraordinary attributes. The quality is unbelievably amazing, and what makes this coat so adorable is that it's a classic trench with a little bit of flare at the bottom.  I love the blue stripe print lining - a great contrast with the flower print, right? I scored this cutie a few years back durgin Black Friday at Anthropologie. Since then, I always look forward to spring just because I can wear it! It gives me a lot of happy feelings, which makes me want to twirl like in these pictures above!
I styled this look with the trench coat in mind, so I decided to wear a plain black cropped top and a vivid orange skirt that has flower lace details to go with the coat. Wearing something bright emphasizes the spring vibe in this look. Even a dazzling pink color, too. These nude platform pumps are definitely complimentary to the trench coat, and I am always so thankful to them for the magical way that they elongate my legs! I really like the little pearl accessories that I decided to put on as a finishing touch. The pearl choker necklace and the earrings aren't a pair, but they look good together and I love how they add some intrigue to the plain top. I am all about playing with lovely jewelry. I think you know that by now!

Happy Tuesday, sweethearts!

Hi LOVEs!!!!

Sorry for the lack of updates here. If you follow me on my snapchat (@fashionistaika), you already known what happened to me over the last several days... But for those who don't...I had extremely rough and tragic moment recently when my landlord locked me in the garage intentionally for freaking three hours... Yep. It sounds crazy, doesn't it? I felt like I was suddenly locked in a prison for no reasons. This was the most cruel experience I've ever had in my life. As a result, I've become kind of mistrustful of people and experience has made me hardly want to do anything. Thanks to my friends who were there for me, I am now recovering very quickly! Plus I found a new place to move to, so hopefully everything will get better!

A few weeks ago, my friend and I went out for a night drive. We just kept driving and enjoyed the calm night while music played on the radio. I especially adore the city lights as viewed from the freeway. This kind of night never gets old, and it always helps me clear and refresh my mind. I wish I had my own car so that I could do this as much as I want to.

We stopped at a random street and did some night photoshooting.  We didn't expect good results, but I actually like them because of how each picture gives expressions. Hope you enjoyed them, too!

Sweet dreams babes <3

Sunday Inspiration // Silver Hair

I am so addicted to this hair color. Super fresh, innovative, and truly unique.  Totally alluring.

Hi LOVEs! Happy Sunday!

Are you a sucker for colored hair like I am? I am the type of girl who easily tires of the same hair style and color. If you've watched me for a while you probably noticed that I am always reinventing myself by switching colors or living life on the edge with a crazy hairstyle, like when I shaved the side of my head. Sounds crazy, huh? But it's fun and an awesome way to discover a previously hidden you.

Of all the beautiful hair color options out there, I can't help but fall in love with silver/gray hair of late. It's usually a look for gracefully aged people, but what if you can't wait for your hair to naturally grow silver?

I am so stoked to dye my hair this oh-so lovely color next week! Interested in how my hair will turn out? Stay updated on
