Second photoshoot with Ade Ogunsanya

Hello dear readers! How are you?

ごきげんよう〜サフィラです。

Recently I had a photoshoot with fellow Brit Ade Ogunsanya. We have shot together once before and this time we tried shooting in a studio. As before, I had a great time shooting with him and I was so happy with how the photos turned out!  I think they look natural, relaxed and fresh.

最近英国人のカメラマンさんと撮影をしました。そのカメラマンさんとの撮影は今回で2回目でした。とても楽しい撮影でした!写真も大好きです。

A few outfits….

Hello dear readers! How are you?

ごきげんよう!サフィラです。

Today I’m sharing a few outfits, two otome kei and one lolita.

今日私のコーデを見せていたします。

First otome kei!

一番目! IMG_5465

The skirt is an old favourite from Innocent World. I bought the jacket in a second hand shop in Koenji. It’s made of thick jersey so it’s very comfortable, but the print and colours make it hard to wear. It’s a shame because it’s a nice shape too! I did a side-swept fringe and plaited my hair into two French braids and tucked the ends in for a short hair effect. I’m still thinking of having my hair really short and wavy, like Elizabeth Taylor or Dorothy Dandridge. It’s hard to change your image in my line of business though! I still haven’t updated my portfolio properly since my last haircut….

スカートはイノワです。ジャケットは高円寺古着屋さんで買いました。ジャージーから作れましたので、とても楽です!あいにく、フローラルのプリントは少し着にくいです。

Next, lolita!

二番目! IMG_5051

I’m wearing an Innocent World onepiece, Heart E headbow, Tabio socks, Jane Marple necklace, vintage gloves and offbrand shoes. I like red and brown together, like strawberries and chocolate!

ワンピースはイノワです、ネックレスはジェーンです、そしてカチューシャはHeartEです。ダークブラウンと赤はチョコレートと苺みたいです!

Finally, back to otome!

三番目! IMG_5102 I’m wearing a Laura Ashley sailor blouse and Jane Marple jumperskirt. The blouse is very thin, soft cheesecloth-type fabric which makes it lovely for summer. I wish I was summer now!

ローラアシュリーのセーラブラウスをジェーンのギンガムジャンパスカートと合わせました。夏っぽいですね!

Thanks for reading, and I’ll be back with more posts soon!

Goodbye Long Hair

Hello dear readers! How are you?

ごきげんよう!サフィラです。

If you follow my facebook page or instagram, you’ll already know that I’ve made a big change to my appearance recently.

最近大イメージチェンジをしました!

20140805-190640-68800304.jpg

Yes, my hair is gone! I was considering cutting it for a long time and I finally went for it. I originally wanted it very short, but the stylist ended up giving me this little bob. I actually like it a lot and probably it’s a good idea as a gentler transition.. I still might go for really short hair sometime though!

長い髪の毛にバイバイしました。今カッパです!

I really enjoyed having long hair and I feel like I made the most of it. I tried lots of different hairstyles and I had fun maintaining it and seeing how long it would grow. From a few months ago though, I kind of started to feel lacking in inspiration and like I needed a change. Sometimes very long hair can start to take over your life and weigh you down, and I admire how free  and confident girls with short hair look. I thought about it for a long time and looked at a lot of pictures of girls with short hair, and suddenly I was asked if I would consider cutting my hair for a particular modeling job. It seemed like a sign, so I said yes!

ロングヘアーが大好きですが、5年間くらい大切に育てました。最近少し疲れました。日本の夏はとてもあついですので、ロングヘアーは本当にたいへんです。今年の頭からよく考えました、「髪の毛どうしよう?」。

When they cut the first big piece off, I felt tears come into my eyes. I felt sad for my poor hair that I had spent such effort looking after and had served me so well! But that was just for a moment and then I felt excited again. When the cut was finished I felt so refreshed and happy, and I haven’t had any regrets since!

ある日、モデルの仕事のフィティングで、スタイリストさんは「ショートカットはいやですか?今回の仕事でショートカットは一番いいですよ。」と言いました。神様からサインだと思いました!次の日スタジオへ帰りましたそして髪の毛を切りました。

I’m really looking forward to experimenting with my hair and trying out all sorts of things with it. Luckily I already learned to pin curl before cutting my hair so I can try a lot of different techniques with that and some retro styles.

今ショートヘアーが大好きです!とてもさわやかだし、気持ちいいし、色々なアレンジをやってみたいです。レトロなイメージに似合うと思います。

I wore this outfit to meet solarflight and redtonic in Shinjuku one day. I had a lovely time with them and I felt happy with my new hair.

最近のコーデです。友達に会いに新宿へ行きました。ショートヘアはロリータも似合うと思います。
