yes, I am finally home in Tokyo from my tropical getaway at one of my favorite islands in South East Asia, Bali. I already miss the fresh coconuts... But I managed to get a couple of things made for myself and for my much anticipated summer return in Japan. These are one pair of sandals I designed and had produced while on the vacay (gold chain not included)... These were actually, but to no surprise, not according to the original design, however they quickly became my loved ones!!!! I have more things to arrive from Bali in the next month so keep an eye here for the bags edition...


bare with me

I would like to start by saying I actually hate writing about myself, talking about myself which is what blogs are generally based upon. I was always so concerned with making sure that what I was sharing was more interesting to readers and in the process was completely blindsiding myself.

I'm going to give this another go.

There is absolutely no guarantee of what will be written or shared. It will most likely be spontaneous and unpredictable, even to myself. This goes as the fact is I am most inquisitive and awake in the hours which others would be asleep. Bare with me please.

Hey readers!
SO very sorry for my poor performance here... I can not use any excuses, I'm just a bad blogger lately!

I thought I would share my above outfit post that I wore on the weekend to Tokyo's most exciting party FancyHim! This weekend was pretty special for me, as it marked the 1 year anniversary of my love affair with Tokyo, since we met! So it was fitting that a FancyHim party was on to mark the celebration! FancyHim is a gay/lesbian/bi/straight (but really, it's gay) party in Tokyo that rolls around every so often and brings out the best dressed and craziest of party-goers. So the pressure was on!!
I had decided that I wanted to,
a) be in theme of ghetto vibes, and
b) wear the most amazing biker jacket EVER taht was gifted to me as a farewell present from best-friend/ex-housemate/colleague/life inspiration Nadia!!! This jacket is so special to me, and I think to the both of us, for many reasons!! I waited a long time to wear this jacket and this was the perfect time!!

This is what I wore:
A * P O P Custom accessorized cap, fitted with a bandana and chains
A * P O P Custom made Bandana Kaftan (made on the day of the party!!)
NADIA NAPREYCHIKOV Custom made Iridescent Biker Jacket. Imagine the coolest fucking thing in the most amazing papery chameleon-like fabric (it literally changes color every time you move), then times it by 10 and that's roughly how amazing it is!
The turtle-neck jumper was really just for warmth... No exciting stories there... It's just fucking cold.

Anyway I hope you like it!
I promise I will try harder to post more things!!
But as I have said before, please follow me on instagram [ @a_p_o_p ] in the meantime!!!
