Summery

12:50 AM

or summary!


It's was a hot day and I spent waaay too much money on new clothes this weekend.

The sales are on though, so it's not really my fault...

I even bought some tights today and there's no way I'll be able to wear them until the weather cools down in Autumn, so it's like I was investing in my future!
That's what I keep telling myself anyway...

Here's some more stuff I bought in Tokyo the last time:


These earrings were also in the lucky bag. 



The whole lucky bag haul


I stopped by Visalia in 109, a nice shop that follows the trends at a reasonable price.


The story behind this top: after forcing Mr. Miruku to buy clothes that I thought suited him, he got upset when I refused everything that he suggested for me. In an effort to appease him, I promised to by the next thing he recommended. This is what he picked - do you think he has good taste?


The shop assistant was really annoying so I spent ages examining the top until I found a tiny speck of dirt on the INSIDE. I acted so shocked and appalled that she gave me a 10% discount. Yay!


My shinkansen entertainment - PopSister on the way to Tokyo, Sweet on the way home.


Free Juicy Couture bag with Sweet, a bit crap really. At least it's big though.


Trying to style the new top with my Liz Lisa usamimi.


When I wore it the usual way, I thought it made my hair look thin, as well as hiding the lovely lace (that matched the new top). So, I tried to wear the usamimi in a headband/scarf kind of way.


Wearing it this way is a lot more convenient, especially when you're out shopping and trying on clothes...but I'm afraid people think I'm doing it "wrong"!

I also bought most of the stuff for the giveaway today, there's just one more thing I want to include, so check back soon!

P.S. Dear Tsu-chan, please stop spamming my Twitter feed! *shakes fist*

  1. I think the white top looks very nice on you with your skin tone and hair color, but it really does look like what Japanese men like hehe^^

    All the guys I've ever dated didn't like my taste in clothing so I stopped listening to men haha, I like my own taste the best!

    Don't worry if people think your usamimi are "wrong" they look super cute on you in that way! You are so pretty, it's nice to see your photos!
