Nylon Japan It Girl and more from Tokyo...

Wearing shilk shirt from Equipment, Frame Denim jeans, socks I picked up in Harajuku and Juju Jellies with Illesteva sunglasses and Hermes Birkin

I always love visiting Tokyo. Having been there more than a dozen times now, I always find somewhere new to visit and something new to try and eat! I was treated to the most amazing wagyu beef the other night and I swear I have never had such good beef in my life! Alan and I love staying at the Mandarin Oriental Tokyo but didn't have time to have even a cocktail at their elegant jazz and cigar bar this trip because we were so busy running around the city! They are extremely well located (5 mins from Tokyo Station!) and everyone there knows who you are after just a day and greet you by name. 

On my last day in Tokyo, we made a trip to Aoyama/Shibuya area and visited this cute little vintage store named Laila Vintage (https://laila.jp/) where they stock the most amazing selection of 60s and 70s designer vintage I've seen in Tokyo so far. They had an array of floral printed dresses from British brand, Clobber as well as Alaia, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent etc. I fell in love with a floral babydoll YSL dress but couldn't justify the 90,000 yen so left with a Ferragamo silk shirt that will surely be making its appearance on my Instagram (CashmereandCandy) very soon!

A special shoutout and thank you to Nylon Japan for giving me a little feature in your "It Girl 2014" section! As a mom, the idea of being considered even a girl anymore is good enough and to be alongside some of the coolest cats in Asia?! That's just mindblowingly flattering. I couldn't resist picking up a copy and grabbing a photo at one of the busiest and therefore more 'Tokyo' cross-walks! I got quite a few odd looks and maybe tripped over a business man or two, but it was totally worth it!

Nylon Japan's September is out now!

We skipped Day 1 of Pitti this time and arrived in Florence from Milan the night before Day 2. It was such an easy choice to pick this skirt, but I couldn't decide whether I wanted to wear it with a crop top or a shirt. The unseasonably cool weather that day made the shirt the obvious choice.

Firenze so far...

Wearing crop top and Mom denim shorts from Topshop and new hat from random Florentine street stall.

...has been perfect! The sun is scorchingly hot and the only way to stay cool is eat a ton of gelato and luckily, there is no shortage of gelaterias around town! Heading to T+Jo's wedding at a castle tonight, followed by a few days in Chianti. I can't wait!

this dress...

Wearing vintage Yves Saint Laurent dress, Giuseppe Zanotti Swarovski crystal heels and Proenza Schouler clutch

...deserves a post. I found this beauty in Milan back in January and have been dying to wear it. The invite to a good friend's wedding in Taipei came in the mail and I decided that this would be the night. With hair this colour it can be a bit hard to look elegant in formal wear, but with this dress I think that anything goes! That being said, I can't wait to wear it again when I change my hair back to black...

Note to self: Must get that pesky tag fixed before I wear it again!
