Parka from Japanese boutique, vintage skirt, RVCA top, H&M necklace, vintage Wrangler boots.

Tokyo has officially exceeded all expectations. Our arrival was littered with luck, and we managed to acquire a spacious, upgraded room, with a panoramic view of Shinjuku. Our senses have been spoilt through a kaleidoscope of awe inspiring city lights, Shibuya’s massive selection of minuscule, kawaii shops, encounters with extremely sweet and friendly locals, street corners drenched with the smell of mouth watering miso ramen, and sampling the infamous Japanese blowfish for the very first time.
I can easily count 10 parkas within my viewpoint at all times here in Tokyo, so my craving for my very own had to be satisfied. Their selection is wide and varied, but I settled upon this soft light shape, with a fleece lining which will carry me through Winter, and can easily be removed come Spring.

I’m so excited to explore Harajuku and Ginza today! If you guys have any shopping or dining recommendations please share! πŸ™‚

You are so totally luck you are in Tokyo! I am a bit jealous now! LOL! You look really beautiful and chic in these pictures as always. I am loving the parka! I was going to get one this year and instead got a peacoat. Oh well, there is always next year. Your sequins skirt is just really amazing, but what is more amazing is how you are wearing a teeshirt over it and you can only see a peek of the skirt. I love the background scenery. Good luck in Tokyo and have tons of fun!

Go to LaForet in Harajuku! It is totally insane, especially if they are still doing the Grand Bazaar (I am just coming back from Tokyo myself πŸ™‚ ). Do not hesitate to explore, as there are many shops hidden in the backstreets. Harajuku has a superb variety of vintage shops. If you haven’t seen the Opening Ceremony store in Shibuya, it is worth a trip back to the neighboorhood. Have fun!

Because you ride so hard for Forever21, Zara and Topshop, I am going to post the following link:


After watching that clip, with your fellow comrades might I add, how do you justify it? You can no longer say ‘OMG! I had no idea.’ So now that you know, will you continue to shop at these establishments? And what does that mean for you and virtually any clothing or accessories purchase that you make? I hate to be the buzz kill on your fashion bender but someone needs to have a fashion conscience.
