My thirft store shirt says fuck hollywood with a grenade where the “U” should be. I cut it and I’m sure I’ll cut it up more. The w♥c shop staff love to do remake so does Jelly. Remake is so fun :stepup:


YSL Grab

I hadn’t shopped in a while. The Summer sales aren’t exciting me, and the Fall items aren’t out yet, so… this would be a perfect time to save up. But I’m horrible at saving. :^_^;;: So I decided to buy something lovely. :up: Those of you who follow my twitter knew I grabbed something lovely.

The lovely little box :heart2:

I asked them to give me a lot of their signature ribbon, so the salesperson just cut a bunch off and put in the bag.

Poof! Now I have a cute skinny belt thanks to YSL ribbon :hearts2:

TA-DA! My new ring :heartlove: The Arty Flower ring from YSL :cat: I really love their new jewelry collection :stepup:

It’s really big! Yay for statement jewelry :heartsmile:

Shown with my geode earrings also from YSL. Such a pretty combo :yayblush:


Titan Trek

Houston has been struck by Titan fever. Houston has been growing a Titan Arum or “Corpse Flower” It’s one of the largest flowers in the world. It takes a long time to bloom (often 30 years) and it’s very very rare. I’m a bit of a plant freak, especially bulbs corms and tubers. Yes really a plant freak, lol too bad I keep living places where I can’t be as much of one. :wink:

Yup… uhhh its Latin name does have penis in it, it does look a bit phallic :wink:

Coming to see it was a pain! Tickets were sold in blocks of 100 per hour and they even sold out most hours even though it was open 24 hrs a day :!:

But you got to go to the Rainforest & Butterfly Center as well. :cheery:

Let’s try to spot where I am :roll:

Butterflies are awesome

The Tiger Swallowtail! Brands need to start using butterflies to make their prints. The colors are so pretty :loveword:

      I think you should at least write a little bit more than ‘great nail design.’ It doesn’t seem fair to just say a few words and leave a link to your blog that doesn’t have anything to do with Miss Mitsu.

        I’m happy for any and all comments. Everyone wants more people to read their blogs and she is linking to a link where people can win things for free.

    OMG! I want those nails.
    My favourite colour is purple.
    I like leopard prints.

    This is absolutely perfect for me. *le gasp*

      a Z last name, now that’s kind of awesome. I love people with Zs in their name since me and my man both have them LOL :-D

    You look great in all of these, but the mode outfits are probably my favorites. You really know how to rock it!

    • Mitsu
      August 3, 2010 / 10:13 am

      I really love mode lately. Now if Emoda & Murua would stop selling out their clothing the day they release it on-line I’d be a much happier mode camper :korila:

  10. August 1, 2010 / 7:33 pm

    Your coords are always outstanding~! I looove those gladiators also!! And that YSL ring is GORGEOUS!! *o*
    Gosh that flower is HUGE!! And I guess for such a rare flower the tickets would be pretty crazy xD It’s nice that you were able to see the Rainforest & Butterfly center~ It’s so pretty! :D

    • Mitsu
      August 4, 2010 / 9:37 am

      Thank you!!!

      Yeah it was really cool to see it being so rare. Once in a lifetime kinda thing so you gotta see it :yayblush:

  11. August 1, 2010 / 7:59 pm

    hey! glad the comments are back on ^_-

    well (like everyone else apparently) i like your new nails! i wasn’t a big fan of the plainer style you seemed to be digging recently. i like the crazyness. im gonna go get some new ones for my bday too! yay. speaking of nails, the new issue of Nails Venus is pretty awesome ^_- (sometimes they suck…)

    oh, and those gladiators are fucking insane!! XD but they rocked that blue outfit. thumbs up. and your legs looked so sexy in that pink skirt. i am jealous. also jealous that you can affort YSL jewelry.

    keep up the fun posts! <3

      I still like simple nails. Part of me just hates wearing an outfit that clashes with my nails. So simple soothes my angry clash hating soul hehehe

      Thanks for your lovely words :heartsmile:

  12. August 1, 2010 / 10:27 pm

    I do love those nails. Very cute~~
    My favourite of your outfits has to be the first one. I love the colour of the silk dress. And you’re right, those shoes are so crazy… but so awesome :)
    That YSL ring is gorgeous! It does pair with the geode earrings quite well. The ring almost looks like something taken from the sea like a piece of gold coral or something… Which matches well with the earrings is what I’m trying to say I guess :^_^;;:

    • Mitsu
      August 4, 2010 / 9:40 am

      Thank you!! I got that dress a few years back on clearance for $6.00, best $6.00 buy I’ve made :hearts3:

      hehehe I agree I like the YSL line because it feels very organic and everything is very weighty and solid. :korila:

  13. August 1, 2010 / 11:45 pm

    i love all your outfits! i see lots of mode inspiration :heart:
    those gladiators are amazing but they look like they take forever to put on ><
    and the color of your nails, super cute~

    • Mitsu
      August 4, 2010 / 9:43 am

      Thank you!! :cheery:

      hahaha thanks to Japanese companies understanding that people need to get in and out of shoes quickly, there’s a zipper in the back. I don’t have to buckle even one buckle :hearts2:

  14. August 2, 2010 / 2:40 am

    Love the new nails! It’s always interesting how many interpretations there can be on leopard print.
    OOOhhhhh I’m loving ur new YSL ring! They do awesome chunky rings and I’m still trying to get my hands on their iconic Arty Oval ring.

    I need to start hunting for bowler hats soon… thanks for the heads up the on trend! ;)

    • Mitsu
      August 4, 2010 / 9:45 am

      I love the Arty Oval! I went to the YSL thinking I’d buy it, but the fit and look on my hand the Floral one won out. I do still want the Arty Oval it’s so pretty :cheery:

      h&m apparently has bowler hats in stock now :wink:

    Wow, your photographs of the butterflies are amazing! Such great closeups. :hearts2:

    How do you do your nude lip? It’s very natural and well blended. :)

    • Mitsu
      August 4, 2010 / 9:51 am

      My camera is only good for macro. Horrible for portraits, but good for butterflies :wink:

      I am using MAC Myth & a dab of the new orange lip gloss by Mellish :heart:

    oooh I love the blouse/ bowler cordinate! very lovely- it suited you nicely.
    I have to ask have you don a review of One*Spo before? I must be blind and or not have the pacients to go through your archives lol. Do they have an american branch? You wouldn’t BELIEVE the hell of a time I’m having trying to find a bowler- it’s incredibly frustrating, and yours is adorable ^w^

  19. August 3, 2010 / 4:40 am

    ZOMG NAAAAAIIILZ! Do want! I think you got those just to make me drool over them! <3

  20. August 3, 2010 / 9:26 am

    Those sandals are absolutely gorgeous. Even if they aren’t in season, you’ll always look fashionable with them!~ <3

    I love your nails and outfits too. And your new ring! This post is just awesome. Oh, and I love butterflies~ <3

    • Mitsu
      August 4, 2010 / 9:55 am

      Thank you so much!!

      Aren’t butterflies awesome :cheery:

  21. August 3, 2010 / 8:59 pm

    I don’t even normally like gladiator shoes – but the colour and the platform and that they go way up the leg – WHOA!! I love Glad News shoes, and wear my spiky studded ones everywhere. It will be the first shoe shop where I drop serious money later this month when I return!

    And I love the cobalt outfit overall – great bowler hat :)

    • Mitsu
      August 4, 2010 / 10:00 am

      Oh I love those ones! One of my favorite shoes this Spring.

      You’re going in August? I hope you go again in Winter! I’ll be there and I’d love to meet you & get hairset :heart:

  22. August 3, 2010 / 9:16 pm

    Oh how I look forward to your coordinate posts! :) those leopard nails are very pretty .. i love the personal touch with the letters <3

    im absolutely in love with those gladiator shoes <3 they're hot

    and i love the mode look, i really like how you pair accessories together – all of them so unique & from different places, but all go so well together – even with those rings from hawaii

    and damn gurl, the mannish mode look shows off your curves! :) so sexy!

    im lovin that colorful w<3c scarf, and i need to buy some decorative lash.. im investing in those bottom lashes very soon … :kumatan:

  23. August 3, 2010 / 11:19 pm

    Aw man, I’m such a sucker for cute & unique shoes, so I *love* your gladiators! They’re so fun, I think. ^ ^ Also loving the Mode coordinate, especially the lovely flow-y top and the pink bandage skirt. Super-cute!

    The Titan Arum looks awesome! You’re so lucky to have seen it, I don’t think NZ is ever likely to have such a plant on display. I’m a bit nuts about unusual plants :-D

  25. August 4, 2010 / 6:36 am

    So much awesome in this post :hearts:
    Those nails are AMAZING & I am loving the first & second outfits especially! The Titan Trek looks like it was fun & lovely :note:
    Definitely wanna try those decorative lash bottoms & do you draw on your eyebrows? I only ask because you made the comment about them being uneven, haha~ I think they look awesome :oops:

  26. August 4, 2010 / 1:54 pm
