Photoshoot: Pin-up Sailor

Recently, I went over to Santa Monica to do a fun pin-up inspired shoot with my friend Oscar of Divide By 0 Photography

True Mee Lee, aka yume_ninja, was such a integral part of putting together the outfit and hair... she even did my makeup for the shoot, as well as edited the first 4 photos you see below! She's truly a great friend, and great inspiration!

Love the results, so here's a peek at my favorite photos from the set!

Hellooooooooooooooooo Sailor.

Outfit of the Day: Altered Yukata

All dolled up for the Japan LA 3 Year Anniversary party I was helping at, I hiked up my summer yukata and got down to business!

Using the hairstyles of geisha from Sakuran as my hair inspiration, I was trying for a cute toned down version of it… I think I was somewhat successful..?
