LOST IN TRANSLATION

Pictures by JAMES VYN

TOKYO PART III I must admit that the first time that I saw Sofia Coppola’s movie ”Lost in Translation” starring Bill Murray and the gorgeous Scarlett Johansson, I was quiet disappointed. Having heard so much about this movie and read so many critics I simply couldn’t understand how and why this movie gained so much success. The thing that made me say that at first was the fact that there is no special action, and the story line is very long and nothing happens. I guess that was putting a statement way to fast. Now that I have been in Tokyo, I can truly feel what Sofia tried to show us in her movie : the way you can feel entirely lost in such a big city whitout trully knowing where you are. It was funny for me to remember some scenes while walking in the Shibuya center. James and I are living in such a small country where we are used to pretty much everything. Discovering such a huge town was very impressiv and even though we had no clue where to go, it was fun getting lost a little bit. That’s the way true adventurer are living!


I really enjoyed the culture of Japanesse people, how respectfull they are and polite, things we don’t always are concerned about in Europe. We were staying at the gorgeous Cerulean tower hotel in the Shibuya quartier. In europe the athmosphere in such luxurious places is very high class and sometimes can almost get a bit ”snobish” but we were both highly impressed to discover their sympathy and kindness no matter what. So definetly a good impression of Japan, our stay was however a bit to short and we wished to stay a little longer just to visit. The pictures you can see here of my outfit were made during our free day where we decided to go after little presents and souvenirs to bring back to our family. I wore that day some Dolce&Gabbana sequined leggins and you can also see the new Louis Vuitton bag I received for my birthday a week ago, it has just like the shoes a chameleon colour : it is a dark aubergine that looks red wine under the sun or dark black. The shirt is from www.montaffair.com, a great online shop you guys should definetly check!

LEGGINS : Dolce&Gabbana
BAG : Louis Vuitton
SHOES : Zara
BLAZER : Zara
LIPSTICK : M.A.C ”Vegas Volt”
CLOVER NECKLACE : Folli Follie

I think your outfit is almost a little bit overstyled! I would have preferred if you had worn a simple white shirt instead of the golden one!

You look so gorgeous! Love this chic & glamorous look! I got so much inspiration for my next outfits from your blog.

I love your blog, but unfortunately i see you wearing more and more designer stuff, you are leaving to other spheres now… it was great, when you are wearing things which were affordable and looked good although. but, i have to admit, you’re blog’s amazing anyway.

I like the leggins they are great and look good and you but dont think it matches to the gold shirt :S you have already done better, pretty girlyy

All photos have same face expressions.. I don’t like it.. But your outfit looks great, without the leggings, because they show your legs so thick (I know they aren’t) :) Kissessss…

Hi Kristin,

I read your blog, because I enjoyed your fashion sense.
And, I enjoyed this post in particular, because you shed a bit of light into your personal feelings of the Japanese culture (being polite) and how some high end places in europe can be a bit snobbery. I found it entertaining :)

Ciao!~

Definately was a short stay for such a far destination, but Im guessing it was worth it.

What an amazing birthdaygift ! Love the leggings aswlel

you’re stunning! this pics look amazing, want to go there :) want your bag too ♥

don’t get me wrong, I think you have a great healthy body but those leggins are a bit unflattering for your body type :/ also I have to agree with a previous commenter that the outfit seems a bit “overstyled”. yet those are great pieces on their own but together it’s just a bit too much. other than that you are as always a stunning beauty with good taste in clothes, still we as your followers don’t have to LOVE everything you wear, right ;) hope to see you soon again in more affordable clothes, but I could understand if you would wear the alma bag every day until the rest of your life haha it’s the most perfect bag ever!

xo Ally

You look amazing :) ! I like this outfit, it’s a bit unusual, great !

look at you!!! loving all the tokyo posts from everyone you pants are to die for!! xx A Fox That Meows ♥

Red looks amazing on you!

I realy enjoyed this post, because you gave us a little insight in your thoughts (‘lost in translation’, the atmosphere in such a big city).
It would be great that you write more things like that :) movies/music you like, places you like to visit, the life in Switzerland..
you seem like a very nice and smart person, so it would be great to read sometimes ‘lifestyle’ subjects :)

and I must agree with the other anonymus readers. I dont like the outfit either. I think its too much: the leggins, the golden shirt… if the clothes were worn by someone else and not you, it would look terrible, but you are so feminine and you have the most prettiest face (and hair) on the blogger scene, so its not looking that bad!

Greatings from Croatia :)

Loving those leggings paired with the tan top & vibrant red blazer – just wonderful! Sounds like you had an amazing trip, albeit a short one :)
