Whether thrown effortlessly over the shoulder, draped as coat, or held loosely in the hand, FUR has been seen all over the Fall 2015 runways. And while there were many looks that I loved, nothing blew me away quite like Michael Kors F'15 Collection. The subtle opulence is nothing new for Kors, but he outdid himself this season with lux ombre fox, chunky head to toe cashmere, and beautiful embelishments. Not to mention his chic nod to Downton Abbey. Here are some of my personal favs...

A trip to Tokyo wouldn't be complete with out it's gastronomic experience. I was only there for two days, so I had to strategically plan my meals.
For our first meal, we headed to the legendary First Ave. Ramen Street in Tokyo Station. We chose Rokurin Sha and Hirugao. Yes, we went to two ramen places, back to back but couldn't decide where to go, so we decided to go to both.
Rokurin Sha, the line to this place is usually an hour or two, but we were lucky and managed to snag a table within 20 mins. They are known for their dipping style ramen, where the noodles and broth are separated. We chose the spicy variation.
Hirugao, The second place had both the traditional ramen, and the dipping style ramen. I went for the later as I never have experienced it before this trip.. it was beyond and probably my favorite of the two.
Kaikaya, this Japanese tapas restaurant has a very energetic atmosphere, which was perfect for our first dinner out in Tokyo. Felt like I was in an East Village restaurant; very neighborhoody with hipster waiters.
Recommend: Tuna Ribs, The Sizzling Steak, The Shrimp with Shrimp Sauce,
Maisen, The place is known for their Tonkatsu (Deep fried pork). Loved the combination of fried pork with shredded cabbage, as it was a nice balance. We got the Pork Loin set. It was delicious but not so nutritious.
Sushi Bar Yasuda, A minimalist sushi bar that is absolute perfection. I am sure you've been to places where the eel is a little chewy, and the sea urchin tastes a bit like ear wax.... well, this uni was like cream, and the eel just melted in my mouth. These were some of my favorite pieces. Highly recommend.
Chef Yasuda is adorable, but his sushi is art.
There are too many places to go and too little time. I can't wait for my next trip! xx, Alice
