Vintage tokyo

So before I left for Tokyo I had NO idea just how amazing the clothes shopping would be. It has just exceeded my expectations and beyond. These are just some terrible quality photos taken last night in the shimokitazawa district, which I felt needed to be shared because in this little town I found the most amazing, incredible well priced vintage arcades I have ever seen in my life. In just one arcade there were literally 30 different little vintage boutiques. I also bought some gorgeous skirts and shirts for 630 yen (about $7.50) each, and a ring, and took pictures of those too. (I do have much better photos of everything in Tokyo but they will have to wait. Sorry about the photos being sideways too, I can't figure out how to rotate them, haha.) Enjoy :)

Farewell! I'm off overseas for a bit!

I wish I could tell you that this is how I will be getting on the plane (when I go to Japan in just a FEW DAYS, just by the way!). Unfortunately, practicality demands that I don’t wear massive sequinned platform boots. Customs would probably have an issue with them too. *Sigh* ah well. I’m going to Japan now. See you all in a month!

H is for Happiness & Harmony (& Hercules!)

The vintage shops here in Sydney have been the absolute BEST at the moment! This amazing warm green cardi with the most gorgeous gold buttons was $3, and these boots $5. I really like this "H" vintage belt as well, just bought yesterday for $2. Unfortunately it's just starting to break, as you can see in the picture :( I shall super glue it back together very soon! Still, can't complain for $2.

From my backyard to London...

So, it's pretty lame really, but kind of funny, this dodgy photo I took in my backyard on a breaking tripod and self-timer is now on the header of Asos's Fashion Finder website. I guess that's kind of cool in a way.

The golden days of cashflow... employment... etc etc

What do you think of this outfit? 

Also, here are some pretty clothes which I am craving. The glory days of internet shopping are over for me, for the moment anyway, because I am recently (of my own volition) unemployed and the Australian dollar has taken a dive below parity to the US dollar. Meaning things are expenso. And not internet shopping is no fun because clothes retail stores in Australia suck. So here's an impossible wish list of lovely clothes which I want, but sadly cannot have:

Jeffrey Campbell
Dr Marten

I need to take better photos of this outfit. But I thought I'd upload it to the old blog anyway for you lovely blog followers :)

Black boots from kmart (yeah!)

Help I'm alive my heart keeps beating like a hammer

I love the crazy colours of this new cardigan, although I kinda feel like a lollipop in this outfit.

I’m going on my first overseas trip ever to Japan in FIFTEEN (!!) days, and getting very very excited about it too, so I thought that this bag with it’s atlas print was very appropriate for this outfit!
