Sorry for my brief absence from the blogging scene. These past two days have been incredibly hectic because I have been doing a photo shoot and interview piece for Jille Magazine, which is a super cool Japanese Magazine that I am honored to be a part of. The article is showcasing blogger fashion from three major cities-Paris, London, New York City, and LA. I was chosen to represent the LA area with is incredible flattering! I received my first copy today and could not put it down. Japanese fashion is so much more interesting than anywhere else in the world. The way these girls throw things together is completely different than anything I would think of and absolutely brilliant. It was incredible how many styles were presented for each garment of clothing, I mean come on a button down shirt transformed into a tube top dress and a pair of shorts, now that's brilliant. **spoiler alert** I'm sure you will see me sporting some transformed pieces of clothing in the near future.

Here are a couple quick snap shots my boyfriend took at the shoot. When we were walking around I probably looked like a really important person because I had not one but TWO photographers following me around! I will do complete outfit posts on each of these outfits soon.

I have also been working on the surprise I told you about last week but it's taking a bit longer than expected but hopefully by the end of this week I will finally be finished!

Proof that the Japanese know good style when they see it: how can WE get a hold of a copy of that magazine issue, Meggs?

All the photos looks amazing. Even more amazing than when I usually say amazing. Those top photos look different too. Like you're all sexxxy and shyte, and I'm loving it!

Congrats on the feature, and all your recent and upcoming accolades. It could not happen to a sweeter or more stylish of person.

Always a Meggs fan, Bella Q <3

That's really exciting and Japanese fashion is really awesome. I have a couple of really big button downs that I thrifted because of their prints and I wear them tied as tube dresses. I wonder if they do it done the same way.

Damn it. I just deleted my comment.

Second verse, same as the first:

Dude! I am so fucking excited for you. Also, really excited in general after seeing the print of the espadrille with the print of the dress. It gave me butterflies. No joke.

And, I want to see those pictures now, thanks.
