A Timeless Classic

12:50 AM

Because one pretty watch is never enough.




Regular readers of Milk Tea (should I say regular drinkers?) will be able to guess where this came from.

That's right - Bunkaya Zakkaten.

Like the Queen of Hearts watch and the horror-kei ring, floral number comes from that same Aladdin's cave.




The concept of this watch is simply amazing.

It's made from a piece of elastic band with embroidered ribbon ruffled around it.

The timepiece is simply sewn on the top
.
The elastic makes it nice and stretchy, so it can fit on any wrist size.


It's so simple that I think it could easily be made at home.

Elastic and ribbon are easily found in a haberdashery and I can remember seeing watch faces in my local bead shop back home.

There are so many talented bloggers out there that I really wanted to share this.

Is anyone willing to attempt one?


I paid about 1000 yen for it, quite reasonable.

This is the kind of accessory that goes with nothing, yet goes with everything.

I have been wearing it to work and it's perfect for adding some fun to a more serious outfit.

Get your sewing needles out girls!
