Fashion Trend from SHOPBOP


In this fall, accessories trend is choker, color trend is terra-cotta and material trend is velvet. There are other trends, but I would like to add my best three in my closet. Today's illustration is the scene that I am doing online shopping on SHOPBOP instead of working in my small home office. I am wearing Preen By Thornton Bregazzi Dress and Marc Jacobs Icon Choker Necklace. By the way, I found this zebra rug at ZARA HOME in Tokyo a few years ago. Now the shop has gold one and black and I like both.

この秋、気になる3つのトレンドをSHOPBOPで探してみました。アクセサリーはチョーカー、色はテラコッタカラー、素材はベルベット。本日のイラストは、仕事しないでオンラインショッピングをしている私です。Preen By Thornton Bregazzi DressのドレスにMarc Jacobsのチョーカーを合わせてみました。このZARA HOMEのラグは、ゴールドと黒が出ていてどちらも気になります。

Goro's Malassezia infection


Yesterday, I took my dog, Goro, to the veterinary hospital because he had a problem with his left ear caused by Malassezia infection. He had been treated for the same illness last year, and I have to go to a hospital every week with him. But this time, he got well after only two visits!
五郎の左耳が今年もまたマラセチア菌にやられていたので、昨日は病院に連れて行きました。去年は毎週通ってやっと治しましたが、今年は2回だけの通院で治りました!

Gamcheon Culture Village and Jagalchi Market in Busan









A painter, CBA joined in The 5th International Recycling Art Exhibition(2016.9.5-9.10) in Busan. I went to see his works with him. It was the first time we had visited Busan. I checked some locations for my shoot before we went there. Gamcheon Culture Village was more beautiful than photos from travel-guide books and the internet! I knew a sad history in the area. Many artists changed to sweet color. We moved to Jagalchi Market by bus, and we enjoyed dinner.

画家のCBAThe 5th International Recycling Art Exhibitionに(2016.9.5-9.10)に新作を出展しました。海外進出をこの目で見たくて、CBAとスケジュールを合わせて初めての釜山に行ってきました。あらかじめ、撮影用のロケーションもいくつか調べておきました。本日の写真は甘川文化村です。ガイドブックやインターネットで見た写真よりも美しくてとても感動しました。歴史を調べてみると、本来はこんなに明るい街ではなく悲しい歴史がありました。その後、アーティストたちの参加によりこのようにスィートな色の丘になったそうです。帰りは、チャガルチ市場で夕ご飯を楽しみました。

My New Zara Pants




Last month, I had a sty in my right eye. My eyelid had swollen so bad. It was the biggest one I've ever have! My doctor told me that I would have to have an operation if the lump couldn't get smaller within a month. I was so lucky that I recovered in a couple weeks. Today's photo was taken when I had a sty. But I look so happy because my favorite shoes! And I also like my ZARA pants that I found last month at GINZA shop. The color and form are in fashion!

先月、右目に大きなものもらいができました。生まれてから一番大きな腫瘍でしたので、かかりつけの医師に来月までに治らなかったら手術をすると言われました。幸い、約二週間で完治しました。今日の写真はその時のものですが、お気に入りの靴を履いてとても嬉しそう。色と形がトレンドのZARAのパンツも気に入っています。先月、銀座店で見つけました。

Kitazawa Hachiman Shrine 2016





















The Kitazawa Hachiman Shrine Festival was held on September 3rd and 4th. The shrine is near my home. I performed a Japanese dance. Its program was 'Takasagao' (classic noh play) and 'Matuzukushi' (all sorts of pine). It was the first that I had performed two twice in a row. Every year, it rains before my performance. But the music starts, and it stops raining. This year, the same thing happened. The shrine god might possibly clean me. Thank you for coming to the festival! Now, I am 'Nataori', a law class taecher, so I would like to try a high-class examination of dance's teachesr by 2020 Tokyo Olympic. There are many beautiful choreography for a professional. 'Nataori' has not yet practice play according to the rule. I feel that the time is coming when I have to get the new performance because I hope many people enjoy it!

9月3日と4日に、地元の北澤八幡さまの例大祭がありました。今年の奉納舞の演目は『高砂』と『松づくし』。二つの演目を連続でやるのは初めての試みでした。私の出番になると毎年、雨がぱらぱらっと降ってきますが、不思議な事に曲がかかると雨がやみます。舞台に立つ前に神様が清めてくださっているようです。みなさま、暑い中お越しいただきありがとうございました。今は名取りですが、東京オリンピックまでに師範の免許を取りたい思うようになってきました。師範でしかできない素晴らしい演目が吉村流にあります。これからも、八幡さまで多くの方々に楽しんでいただきたいなあと思うと、そろそろ新しい技を身につける時期が来ているような気がするのです。

Valentino White Shirt




VALENTINO shirt, kate spade new york pants and sunglasses, Christian Louboutin heels

I know that leopard pattern is the latest trend, and I would love to wear my kate spade pants many times in this fall. I have never been coordinated it with a white shirt before, so I looked for one at BARNEYS NEW YORK in Ginza in Tokyo. There are lots of different types of white shirts there! I tried a few of them on, and the GIVENCY shirt was so beautiful. But unfortunately it was a poor fit my thin upper body. On the other hand this VALENTINO shirt was very comfortable around neck even when it was fully buttoned. And it kept its shape even with an open neck because of its solid good quality. The flair sleeves lurk when my arms are down, then they open when my arms are up. I also found some beautiful white shirt on SHOPBOP. We can wear them daily. I can't roll up my sleeves of the VALENTINO shirt when it is hot, so I would love a just a little more fabulous white shirt, too!

レオパード柄がトレンドと知ってから、このkate spadeのパンツをたくさん履きたくなりました。まだ、白いシャツに合わせたことがなかったので、銀座のバーニーズで探してみたら、いろんなフォルムの白シャツが豊作でした。数枚試着させていただき、GIVENCYの胸の開いたエレガントなシャツもよかったのですが、上半身が薄い体ではその美しいデザインを活かしきれなくて断念。その点、このVALENTINOは、ボタンを全部とめて禁欲的にしても首が苦しくなく、一つ開けても襟元がしゃきっとしてくれるので安心します。袖の大胆なデザインは、腕を下ろしている時は目立たず、動いた時にふわっと広がります。 SHOPBOPでも素敵な白シャ、をみつけました。こちらは、暑い時には袖をまくれて気軽に普段でも着れるような白いシャツ。VALENTINOは、ジャケットに袖を通せないですし、まくることもできないので、もう少し気楽で一枚でもさまになる素敵な白シャツを用意しておきたいです。

Beautiful Kenzo Dress






The hem of KENZO dress that I found at trampoin10 is cut off, so it sweeps away fallen leaves like a broom. With the leaves and twigs twined around it, it resembles a cute wreath. Whenever I walk with somebody, he or she says to me, "Oh, my God!!!", and they pull them off. I would love to wear the dress with a jacket after it will come back from dry cleaning. Sneakers also should go well with it!

trampoin10で見つけたKENZOのドレスは、裾が切りっぱなしなので気づくと帚のように落ち葉を集めています。裾に葉っぱや小枝が巻き付いてリースみたいに可愛いです。一緒にいて気になる人が、「ちょっと、大変!!!」といって取ってくれます。クリーニングから戻ったら今度はジャケットに合わせてみたいです。スニーカーも合いそうです。
