Japan Trip 2018 Shopping Wishlist

Hey everyone! ♡


So today I wanted to share with you my shopping wishlist (or just shopping list) for my trip to Japan in January 2018! I am just a few days away from boarding my flight to Thailand where I'll stay for a bout a week and a half before flying to JAPAN! I am SO excited I cannot wait!

Since Liz Lisa just released the first round of their Spring 2018 collection and since I've been holding off to buy a lot from their winter 2017 collection, I thought it would be good to compile a list of the things that I want to buy when I get there just so that I remember to pick these things up or at least check them out- and plus this is making me even MORE excited for my trip! If you want to see my wishlist please keep reading!

Most of these items are from Liz Lisa but there are also a few times from Ank Rouge that I have been loving that I've included as well. Links to the items are available in case anyone wants to buy anything off my wishlist for themselves!

Liz Lisa

Perfume Bottle Gingham Check Jumper Skirt (link)

I wanted this dress SO badly when it first came out- I have a huge soft spot for gingham and I just love the perfume bottle print!

Wrapping Print One Piece (link)

I seriously ADORE everything from the new spring 2018 releases but this dress has to be my favorite! I an a sucker for prints with bears, rabbits, etc on them so this one is certainly no exception! I really love the lavender color way as well but I will have to see it in person before I make my decision... I will probably end up with pink though (who am I kidding).

Frill Trench Coat (link)

I think this trench is SO cute and I love trench coats so much! I already have two from last spring's collection and don't need any more, but this one seems longer so I like it for that reason (and can justify having two of the same color for that reason?) However this is one of the items I'm not 100% sure I want to buy so Ill see how I feel about it when I see it in person!

Sweet Plate One Piece (link)

The name of this dress makes me lol but I love the design so much! I'm a little afraid that it might be too OTT for me but I just absolutely love the sweets theme and the ribbons!

Lace Up Socks (link)

These socks might be a little unnecessary but I LOVE liz lisa socks and I think these are so adorable! The lace up detail is to die for!

Toe Shoes Rabbit Sukapan (link)

I was really hesitant about this skirt because although I absolutely love the print, I wasn't sure how the lavender color was going to be so I wanted to wait to see it in person! Chances are I'll probably buy it because I love the little bunnies... but I really wanted to see it for myself before making a move.

Puff Rose One Piece (link)

I have this skit and wanted the dress SO bad but I told myself I had to wait until it went on sale- and its finally on sale! i hope I can buy it there so hopefully its not sold out!

Sweets Cinderella One Piece (link)

I know this is a long shot and it probably is already sold out but I would love to buy this dress if I could find it! I don't know why I hesitated in buying it and now its sold out online but I just love the print so much and regret missing out on it :/

Embroidery Check Skirt (link)

I love this skirt so much! I hesitated to buy it because I already had a grey and pink skirt from Honey Cinnamon but I don't think I could resist this skirt if I saw it in person so this is definitely on my wishlist! 

Vision Cross Pumps (link)

I didn't know about these pumps because I'm pretty sure they're in a velvet material but I just love how the bow is removable so you can wear it two different ways! I also really want to buy a pair of heels in Japan so I think these are perfect! 


Front Button Ruffle Pocket Skirt (link)

I have this skirt in grey and its one of my favorites! I really want the pink one as well!

Snowy Bear Fake Fur One Piece (link)

I CAN'T LEAVE JAPAN WITHOUT THIS! I love this print so much and this dress is just the most adorable thing i've ever seen!

Gingham Frill One Piece (link)

I love this one piece so much! I just love the sweet girly design and I think this would make such a nice addition to my wardrobe!

And thats all I have for my wishlist! I can't wait to buy everything! Are any of these items on your wishlist as well?

I hope you found this interesting and thank you so much for reading!

Chic meets kawaii (OOTD)

Hello everyone! ♡

I wanted to talk about my current style and a few things I've been loving for winter. I feel like an entirely different person (in terms of fashion) when it comes to winter. When the weather starts getting colder, I think of pearls, gold jewelry, warm beautiful jackets, and just pure glam. Looking back on my Instagram feed (@xsakisaki) I've noticed that over the past several years I've always felt this way about winter. Maybe it's because when I think of winter fashion, I picture the beautiful women in the 1950s in New York with their glamorous coats and leather handbags walking through snowy streets. Not to say this this style is anywhere near that, but I do feel a bit more "glam" and less "kawaii" like my normal style nowadays. I am still experimenting and playing around with mixing more cute and kawaii fashion by wearing the Japanese brands that I love such as Liz Lisa or Ank Rouge, with more high street, or luxury pieces to satisfy my need for glam while still staying true to my style.

Jacket - Dress: Liz Lisa | Bag: Saint Laurent | Shoes: Chinese Laundry | Watch: Olivia Burton

With that in mind, I tried to pick out the more versatile pieces that I have in my Liz Lisa collection that aren't overly cutesy. I settled on this knit sweater dress that I got last year and paired it with this Liz Lisa moto jacket from this year's autumn collection. I think that sweater dresses are super cute and on the more mature side, just because you can dress them up and look really posh. The floral details add a bit of cuteness to the design in my opinion so this was definitely the right choice for the look that I was going for! The jacket for me was a no brainer since firstly, I've been wearing it non stop ever since I received it and secondly, I love the gold zips and the gold details all around the jacket. I think gold is a really glamorous and beautiful color and much prefer it over silver. The gold also matches on my watch and on the chain of this beautiful Saint Laurent purse.

Sad to say, I bought this purse from Saint Laurent a couple weeks ago and soon after returned it. In pictures it looks like this beautiful blush pink color with a striking white trim, however, I was disappointed in the way that it looked in person. I love muted blush pinks for winter but this purse ultimately did not capture my heart (and if I'm spending that much money on something, I want to be 100% in love with it). That being said, I do love the design and looking at these pictures now makes me miss this little thing, so we will see what happens in the future...

The last part of my outfit are these AMAZING boots. I went to Macy's at the start of their Black Friday just to have a look around and came across these gorgeous boots. I have had my eye on a couple of pairs of boots for the winter and of course I've been lusting after ones such as the Stuart Weitzman ones, so after a hard and long 5 minute internal debate with myself I decided to get these over the knee boots from Chinese Laundry. I've always heard of this brand but have never bought anything from them before. The things I like about these boots is that they are super form fitting and flattering. I tried on a few pairs that were either too baggy or too short but I felt like these ones were the perfect height. Originally I wanted to get light grey boots but after seeing this tan/beige/nude color I thought that this would suit my style a lot better! I am still looking out for grey ones but these will satisfy me for the time being!

I hope you liked this look and enjoyed hearing a little bit of ins ight to my winter fashion sense! Let me know if you like this look and especially how you feel about it compared to my normal "super kawaii" looks!

Thank you for reading!
