Moshi moshi from Japan! I’m currently in Osaka, writing from a little studio apartment in Juso. My trip is going so well. I really love it here. So far I’ve been to Tokyo for five nights, then Kyoto for four nights, and am here in Osaka for another three nights, then back to Tokyo. I’m going to post photo diaries from each city soon.
Here’s a mini outfit post that I managed to do in Kyoto. The weather was a bit temperamental when I was there, but when the sun was shining the light was really beautiful. The piece that I have been most excited to find on this trip so far is this bow vest from Comme des Garçons’ Fall/Winter 2013 collection. It is in stores now but I managed to find this one in a secondhand designer store in Tokyo! If you’re ever in Tokyo check it out, the store is called RAGTAG and there are a few scattered around, all with different stock. I’ve had my eye on this vest ever since the runway show, so my heart almost stopped when I saw that it was discounted and in my size! It was definitely meant to be.
I would’ve liked to style the vest over a white shirt, but I didn’t pack one, and I was thinking about going to find one but you know, when you’re actually looking for something in particular, it is rare that you end up finding what you’re looking for; especially one that fits right.
