Hello loves <3
This month's obsession can apply to a variety of products. The trend I have my eye on for this month is global trackings. Now what is this you ask? It is the process of adding multi-cultural or global aspects into your wardrobe. For example: a sweatshirt that enhances your country of origin (I wear my Brazil sweatshirt or Italy jersey whenever I want to feel comfortable). I am currently obsessing over British flags, items with double-deckers, Eifel Towers, etc. Another example could be incorporating maps into your textile choice, post cards, stamps, or even monetary items for example a coin print, coin belt, or money print. A final example could even be a slogan t-shirt, but in a different language or even a Chinese or Japanese dialect. Possibilities are endless. Don't forget about jewelry as well! This trend can also easily be done to catch eye on a college campus.

Adding a charm or two into your everyday jewelry collection can serve as a conversation starter and possibly a memento of a place you have traveled to.

Adding a touch of Asian flare to your outfits every now and then can be a fun way to embrace your inner Harajuku style. However, in order to find Japanese as well as other fashionable goods, you must search the web a bit harder to ensure you are receiving quality goods. Be weary what sites you buy from, make sure you can withdraw your credit card transaction incase of scamming, and always buy your item a few sizes larger than you normally would. Also, if you are buying for example a slogan shirt in a form of Asian writing, be aware of what it says. I once fell in love with a Japanese t-shirt and when I looked up the translation, I found out the shirt said "I pooped today" in Japanese....yeah, thanks but no thanks.
Thanks for reading and happy travels!
