She runs a successful street style blog that is known for its quirky-cool images. She isn’t afraid to add neon strands to her hair. She can pull off a pair of chunky wedges just as easily as wedge sneakers. Her home has the scent of a foreign land, while the décor effortlessly mixes bright colors and bold prints. She is the Tokyo girl.
The Tokyo-inspired girl always says yes to a piece of eye-catching jewelry, so check out (1) Kenneth Jay Lane’s Tokyo Drop Earrings ($113). Her gifts are always beautifully wrapped using interesting paper like (2) American Apparel’s Washi Paperset ($20). Her iPhone wouldn’t feel like it belonged to her if it wasn’t decked out in a printed case like (3) Kate Spade New York’s Japanese Floral Phone Case ($36). Give her home a new signature scent by buying her (4) Voluspa’s Japonica Gogi and Tarocco Orange 3 Wick Candle Tin ($10), and then give her a new signature scent by picking up the (5) Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Mini Rollerball Coffret ($15). Refresh her dinnerware by picking up pieces like (6) Taika’s Iittala Soup/Cereal Bowl ($26). Not only will they add a new look and feel to her table setting, but they will vibe perfectly with the colors and prints already found in her house. For a seriously luxe gift, check out (7) Jimmy Choo’s Tokyo Glitter-Finished Suede Sneakers ($347). They have a street-cool feel and will look good with everything from a jeans-and-blazer combo to a breezy midi dress. Last, but certainly not least, (8) Shoichi Aoki’s Fresh Fruits Postcard Set (AU $14) will give her plenty of options, whether she wants new wall art or a fresh set of note cards. Happy shopping!
