I got these shorts at a store along Meiji-dori in Tokyo called Royal Flash. The place drips a slightly evil gothic vibe and they stock a lot of rad labels, including KMRii bags, which seem very alive when examined up close. Kind of like they’re all on the verge of eating each other.

Anyway, the shorts were my triumphant find, pretty basic aside from the massive leather x-back and super thin straps. I wore this out to dinner in Philadelphia with the lovely Free People crew after sewing up the gaping holes in the tshirt on the way out the door.

tokyo photo diary 3

20/07/2010, jewelry, my photography, photo diary, tokyo

Some shots from my trip to Japan a couple weeks ago: shooting with Mercury Duo and ViVi, making the most out of my proximity to Topshop and Opening Ceremony, wandering around Shibuya with my mom, breaking in my Obakki zipper bag, testing as many different coffee drinks from 7-11 as possible, jewelry I picked up along Takeshita-Dori, cheesy grins with Osami Yabuta, the wall collage that ViVi made from my blog photos, Shibuya by night, and baggage claim to mark the end.

Going back to Tokyo is always so amazing it almost feels like a relief..every time I come home I feel a little empty for a few days as I transition back. Depressing huh. But I’m working on figuring it out to where I can spend a lot more time in Japan..I’ll keep you guys posted!

Heading to Urth for iced matcha lattes..hands down my favorite drink this summer. I was all bundled up in tights/cardigan/vest but was dying from heat and changed into some basics I had in my car. Thank God for my backseat turned second closet. I picked up these shorts on sale at Opening Ceremony in one told me how massive their store is over there! 7 levels worth of fun. It was a short walk from my hotel so I spent a lot of time fondling..everything.

(Topshop maxi dress, Forever 21 necklace as headband, Lowluv/vintage/Astley Clarke necklaces, Jeffrey Campbell boots)

At the Sofitel before going out to dinner earlier this week, screwing around with one of the gag gifts that Free People gave us. This pig shoots balls out of it’s mouth at a pretty good velocity. A few of you asked about this dress a couple posts down, I got it a while ago and left it lying around it my closet before finally getting it altered (really depressing when the smallest size is still too big at the chest). Strangely one of my favorite default pieces to wear now.
