I Hate Tokyo

12:50 AM

...because I can't resist spending money there!

Nah, of course I love Tokyo!

Welcome to another rainy evening in Sendai.

The rain matches the mood of all the Japanese people who can't quite get over the fact that Japan didn't really deserve to progress any further in the World Cup.

Don't get me wrong, I hoped they would - but they did as well as anyone could have expected.

Now, let's all cheer for Argentina so I can win the pool organised by my co-workers!

I'm resentful of Tokyo for having so many lovely things to buy, but I'll show you them anyway.

First up, Titty & Co in Shibuya 109. Yes, that's right, a shop named after boobies.

Another case of me being to lazy to iron clothes when not absolutely necessary!

I love the fringing on the t-shirt and the studs make it kind of edgy. What do you think, Mode?

The shop was having a "Buy 2, Get Both Half Price" deal, so I got this pink and gold necklace too.

Have you ever heard of a special offer like that? I couldn't believe how lucky I was!

I also went to NADIA (Nadia Flores en el Corazon) in Harajuku.

Nice touch to staple a false rose petal to the bag <3

I bought these amazing sparkling tights. One thread was pulled loose so I got a 10% discount. Hopefully a dot of clear nail varnish will hold it together!

It makes me think of a psychadelic kimono!

I wanted to catch the glittery thread that's running through the tights, but I don't think it came out well.

I got a few more pieces that are in the wash now, so I'll post them another time.

I didn't do as much shopping as I expected though.

I'm not sure why.

I think I've got a reasonable amount of clothes for Spring/Summer (although never enough, haha!)

So, I wonder if my subconscious is telling me to do something different.

I have been considering splashing out on some cute office outfits from Cecil McBee.

Or maybe I should look ahead to Autumn/Winter collections?

Hmm...curiouser and curiouser!

  17. Shmuberry - Well, that's the reason why we all work, right? Who needs food when you can have clothes?!?!

  18. m。m。- well, it doesn't seem like a good business choice to me, but it was great for shopping! Maybe they wanted to clear out old stock.
