Here are my thought about why fashion is important to me and my blog.


A- As I am Japanese woman, fashion is important for life.

B- Because I am Japanese, I need to know what is hot around the world.

C- City like Los Angeles or Tokyo, I love to see what fashion is.

D- Do what we want? Yes, the writing about fashion is one of them.

E- Everyone needs to have a style, I mean a fashion style.

F- Fashion makes people happy.

G- Good people have good fashion.

H- Hipster is in Los Angeles.

I- I am a freelance writer and write about many fashion subjects for newspaper, magazine and blog (I am not a fashion writer, but I write about many fashion subjects).

J- Japan + U.S.A. = Fashionably happy countries

K- Kawaii fashion (Japan) or Sexy fashion (U.S.A.)? I like both. I like fashion.

L- Los Angeles is the queen bee of casual fashion.

M- Music + Fashion = Stylish life style

N- Nice people have nice fashion.

O- Old fashioned or New fashion? Anything is good for fashion.

P- Peace + Love = Fashion

Q- Quick image change? Fashion will do.

R- Runway show always gives me joy to write about.

S- Street fashion & Street smart bring the fun trend.

T- Twitter brings fashion news (like this one from LAZR TRADESHOW).

U- U.S.A. has many fun fashion designers.

V- Vintage fashion inspires us artistic feelings.

W- What is fashion? Express ourselves, right?

X- XOXO is a fashion brand name? I guess only fashion business people can make their name cute.

Y- Yoko is my name. My name is Yoko Fujimoto, not Yoko Ono. I am a writer, and I will write about  LAZR TRADESHOW in Senken-Shimbun (major Japanese fashion business newspaper) soon.

Z- Zoo York… See, I can write about fashion subject until “Z”.

See, I have many things to say about why FASHION is important to me and my blog.
I hope you like my fashionably writing style.
Thank you.
Have a good one.

#279- Happy Spring!

How many do you walk?

I saw this sign on the street in my new neighborhood, it says, “Walk 6,000 steps a day to improve health and 10,000 steps a day to lose weight. How many do you walk?”

Between “TBS TV (Tokyo Broadcasting System Television, Inc.) news program, Road Rage, DMV, LAPD, CHP, Anger Management, Google, Cold, Gas range, A DIET BOOK BY YOKO FUJIMOTO, Senken-Shimbun, Agenda Long Beach Show, LA Fashion Market Summer 2018, Gas heater, TAX Return, Google, Google Play, LA Textile Show Spring/Summer 2019, LA Fashion Market Fall 2018 etc. (work, work and work… and sick and trouble… and work, work and work…and trouble…)” and “Descanso Gardens”… I have been walking a lot… really a lot… I walked 10 times of 17 miles per day (from my new apartment to Descanso Gardens round trip plus walking at Descanso Gardens) in two months.

My weight is between 80lbs and 83lbs, even I eat a lot (eat what I want) I can keep up my current weight (80lbs-83lbs).

Title of this column: From L.A. “Slut?”

Since a few years ago, I have been noticing the egg shape sign of “eggslut” ( on the way to L.A. fashion district in downtown Los Angeles.

“eggslut (a woman is sleeping around with eggs)”? This shocking name of the restaurant has been bringing curiosity to me.

This restaurant (“eggslut”) has a counter at the “Grand Central Market” which is also famous as a tourist popular spot, and when I drive by this place my curiosity about this place is getting bigger and bigger, because I always see a long line in front of…

#276- Evil noise vs. White noise

Today (Nov 20th in the midnight) someone broke into my apartment (my front door two locks were unlocked / my door was locked before I went to bed)…
[I should’ve get up when upstairs guys were harassing me with loud banging noise around 3:20am-4:30am this morning.]

Two weeks ago, someone came to my back door (kitchen door) with a pair of scissors and chopped my mini rose flower (my mother and my younger brother’s gift) off (on Nov 7th), and someone also came to my back door with a pair of scissors and chopped my plastic door mat’s daisy flower’s petal off (on Nov 9th)…

It’s very scary… I have made police reports about these incidents…

I have been having bad luck with upstairs neighbor for long time…after former upstairs neighbor ( moved out, I was praying for a new upstairs neighbor who is a morning & quiet person… but my instinct told me one month ago, “you will get a new upstairs tenant who is a night p…
