Tokyo Tokyo

itscamilleco.com2013062408

It’s the start of my Japan blog posts! Finally, after more than a month, I’m now able to blog about my trip to Tokyo. As you all know, I, together with Tricia, attended EMODA’s TouchME Fashion show last May 17. Since I was already getting flown in to Tokyo for the show, I went ahead and extended my stay for a bit so that I can squeeze a little shopping and sightseeing in. I invited my mom and sister to come with me so they booked a flight to the city as well. I flew ahead though which means I had quite some time to myself. So what did I do? Schedule a date around the city with Tricia!

itscamilleco.com2013062405

I’ve only been to Japan once before so Tricia’s definitely more familiar with the place. I told her, “show me your ways and I shall follow!” LOL! I was an eager tourist. The first stop in our itinerary? Purikura heaven at Club Sega!

I was beyond amazed at what these machines can do. I mean I’ve tried neo prints, but these, these are on a league of their own!!! They have the power to make ANYONE, and I mean, ANYONE (all caps for emphasis) pretty! I don’t know how they do it. They make your face, chin and nose instantly smaller, your eyes bigger, your skin smoother. In short, they make you look like a doll.

itscamilleco.com2013062401

So basically, this is what you’ll see once you’re inside one of the machines. Look at the lighting around it! It’s strategically placed to make anyone look flawless!

itscamilleco.com2013062403

You can choose different backgrounds, themes and editing styles for your photos. Tricia and I had so much fun copying the poses!

itscamilleco.com2013062404

After your photos are taken, more magic happens here. You already look like a doll but you can still edit each of your photos by not only adding words, stickers, props and changing backgrounds, but also makeup!!! You can make your lashes longer, change your lip color, enlarge your eyes and so on and so forth. This is one mean machine!

itscamilleco.com2013062424

Tricia and I got sucked into doing 3 rounds of purikura. How can we not? Look how cute our photos turned out? I wish I have a machine like this at home. I’d take my ID photos there! Outfit shots even! Haha!

itscamilleco.com2013062415

But sadly, I don’t have a machine like this so it’s back to reality for us. Thank you for introducing the madness that is purikura, Tricia! For now, we’d have to settle with our normal and too-honest-for-our-own good cameras. LOL! (Check out our matching caps. Both Tricia and I got them after we spent the whole afternoon shopping around Shibuya 109.)

itscamilleco.com2013062416

After Tricia and I parted ways, I walked around Shibuya a bit more while waiting for my mom and sister to arrive. Look at what caught my attention. Clearly, she caught the guy’s attention as well because he tried to pull one of her stuffed toys. Mean guy!

itscamilleco.com2013062417

This is her getting annoyed at the guy who tried to pull her “stuffed toy dress”. (Ayan kasi, nangenge-alam!) I can just imagine how warm she must feel in this. Career kung career! A for effort! This is what you call tiis ganda to the highest level!

itscamilleco.com2013062409

Leave it up to the Japanese to make my outfit look mediocre.

itscamilleco.com2013062407

I may not have stuffed toys on my clothes but I hope you still appreciate this black and white, print on print outfit.

Of course I’m not ending this post without photos of what I had for dinner. By this time, my sister and mom have already arrived so we headed straight to this sushi restaurant called Nemuro Sho Kudo, located at Shibuya.

All the seafood they serve here are shipped directly from Nemuro and Hokkaido. Feast your eyes on just a few of the fresh seafood we had!

    Wow, I know this is late (haha, it’s not just you who’s behind on blogging, but your readers as well) but I LOVE your jacket. I’ve been looking for a tweed blazer/jacket that’s loose and has a kind of unfinished look, like the one you’re wearing. How old is the blazer/jacket? Would it still be in stores in USA or Canada do you think?
    Btw, love the pointy-ness of the shoes!

      Thanks Angela! Hmmm I doubt it. I don’t see it in any of the Zara stores I’ve been to lately.

    Hindi ko keri ang fashion sense nung girl na puro stuffies ang dala!
    Hindi ba siya nabibigatan dun?! Geeed!
    Talagang nasa dress nya ang mga stuff toys? Mukha kasing bitbit nya lang eh.
    Ermergerd!

    Ang cute ng outfit mo.Did you intend to buy that hat to match your shoes?
    At ang cute nyo dun sa Purikura.:) I wanna have that kind of machine, na ang effect ay sa personal at hindi lang sa photo. :D

      I think they’re attached to her dress talaga :) I bought the cap because I liked it then later, I realized, bagay pala to my outfit so I wore it :)

    camille i really wonder can you just give me an advice you know how i love to go to ateneo . my mom keeps telling me to have a 4 year course so i easily think of Psychology but i also want to be like you, or laureen or liz uy .so do i really have to take 2 courses?

    Reply
    • itscamilleco

      Why 2 courses? One will do. Even if you take Psychology, you can still pursue fashion. A lot of people in fashion took different courses but ended up in fashion pa rin after. :) It’s really about the passion and talent :)

    I had fun looking through your Purikura photos! Wish they’d also put up such a photobooth here in the Philippines.

    Anyway, your outfit is far from mediocre! No one but you can pull off print-on-print plus gold accents in the form of your headgear and shoes. I’m partial to your choice of purse for this ensemble. I thought at first it was your camera bag, but I took a good look at the rest of the photos and loved the way it coincides with your color palette!

    I love that puffy pink girl w/ overloaded accessories all over her, that kind of look there is called rebel fashion. Shibuya street is the street where you can find girls wearing anything what they like & where there are no rules for fashion. I’ve seen it on a travel documentary on tv.
    Anyways..i love camille’s travel-fashion blog. And mostly i love your outfit camille, it’s so cool & classy.❤

    Holy Moly grabe ang tawa ko sa Stuffed Toy dress na picture! hahaha… nakuha mo pa ang emotion ni ate jan… The Japanese do have their own fashion flair! Parang stuff toy Jeremy Scott pants lang ni Sandara ang peg. hehehe… but your outfit is far from being mediocre though. I really like it! :)

    i’m amazed how the japanese can get really eccentric with fashion (like that girl wearing stuffed toys). when I had my tour in japan, i saw a girl with huge swarovskis on her nails and LASHES! (ndi ba ang bigat non!?) ..pero mas panalo pa din yung stuffed toys. hahaha!

      Stuffed toys trumps nails & lashes! Haha! :) I love that they’re so open to all types of styles :) No judgement!

    Even though you are not wearing a stuffed toy dress. I still like your outfit post! Your look can easily stand out in a Harajuku crowd! kahit print on print, it has a minimalism vibe. :) The guy who tried to pull one of her stuffed toys in her dress, was so rude :(

    Way to go Ate Camille! I totes love the GOLD-sy ensemble! Hat and shoes! TAT I told Ate Tricia that I also want to see Harajuku and she told me that her faves are Shibuya and Shinjuku!

    Beyonce wore that top too! She wore it with the matching skirt. I never thought I’d see Beyonce wear Topshop considering that she can afford to wear designer brands everyday. haha! Bongga nanaman pagkamix ng prints mo dito! Magiging proud sila
    Mary Katranzou at Peter Pilotto pag nakita nila ‘to. chos.

    EXCITED na ako to see you wear your new Alexander Wang and Zanotti! Feeling ko susuotin mo yung isa dun sa Preview Ball no? Blog about your outfit ha!!!!! ;) What’s this year’s theme ba?
