Style and Tokyo: Hole

I wanted this shirt SO BADLY but it didn't fit.

A science beaker necklace to go with the beaker themed dress. dying.
why didn't I get this?
the coffee pants in action
who doesn't love cat shoes?
Everything that was so amazing about Tokyo aside, I LOVED exploring all of the shopping options and spying on all the Japanese girls and guys and their quirky styles.  If I could describe my style, it is pretty basic (full of blacks, whites, greys), clean, on trend - but I'll never snap up the latest trendy thing, instead waiting to see if I like it and if I can incorporate it in to whatever style it is that I have going, so a lot of things pass me by. But Japanese fashion blew my steady road style out of the water because I loved it and I wanted to wallow in it and embrace it! It was so fun and there were so many quirky things to surprise the eye with - I can't describe it!

My FAVORITE store is pictured here....I was SO excited about this shop that we went in to in the Harajuku area of Tokyo (my absolute favorite place to walk around) that I abandoned all of my photographer shyness and asked if I could take pictures. It had the quirkiest most wonderful things that we spent so much time in there just delighting in it...If you are ever there you have to go to Hole (by a "veteran japanese brand, I am I). And here is their blog. (and here is another blog post about them with more pictures of some summer style, lOVE!)

That place looks so fun! I am one of those who eyes that kind of stuff and secretly wants to wear it every day but never would because of the fear that I can't pull it off. Still trying to figure out my style with this post partum body. And OMG a trip to Japan??? That sounds awesome. Show us more!

That's it isn't it, you just got in and ask. 8/10 they will say yes if you say what's it for. They wouldn't let me in the new j.crew shop though, their lost I say!

This looks so fun, and I agree with the style thing. When you hit a city or interesting place is does inspire you a lot. Coffee Pants! I have to share these in my weekly round up, amazing. I once saw some cords that have xmas dinners on them like this, oh and some with martini glasses. Would I wear them...maybe!

You went to Tokyo? It is soo much fun to dress funky in cities that appreciate it, encourage it, love it.
The number shirt subtle and cool. Those blue shoes w/ furniture legs-heels. Quirky!
