Contrasted


Vintage denim contrast stitching vest and skirt (the latter is customised) from eBay, vintage shirt from Etsy, rings from eBay / borrowed from mum, 
boots by Windsor Smith, vintage beret.

Literally the day after I saw this and this photo from Alexander Wang's Spring 2014 collection, I purchased a contrast stitching denim vest and skirt set I had been watching on eBay for about 4 months. I knew this late 90s/early 2000s trend would be making a comeback soon, although I can't say I'm seeing it everywhere yet. Probs should point out though that the skirt is not from the original vest set (whaaat ??!?). The set skirt was a fail - I bought a contrast stitching dress on eBay - had it altered into a skirt - voila! I had a full set that matched (almost) perfectly. It has been a work in progress for like... 6 months, I am not even kidding. Although it's taken me a while to debut it here on my blog. Plus it works great as separates too!

Can you believe this though, not just a photo post but a video too ??! I hope you enjoy my first outfit/look video below:

Tokyo Shopping Bits


Gifts from Brandon - Vogue Nippon March 2002, Fashion News May 2000, FRUiTS magazine, Koenji Kidz sticker and buttons.

Stickers from a store in Nakano Broadway.

Socks from Bubbles, Harajuku.

Solid face masks and Hello Kitty face masks from Daiso (these things are so handy).

Yurie Sekiya stickers from WALL, La Foret.

As much as I wanted to do a full-on Tokyo haul for you guys, I really just didn't buy enough this time around! I bought mostly little bits and pieces, a few clothing items, accessories and gifts for friends and family. Above are just a few of the little things I picked up for myself that are still sitting in a corner of my room, not yet stored away. If you follow me on tumblr or twitter or pretty much anywhere I'm sure you know how much I love 90s/00s catalogue & magazine scans, as well as how much inspiration I get from early 2000s fashion, hence the perfectly appropriate nearly-vintage magazines from Brandon (thanks again if you're reading this!). And how gorgeous are those Yurie Sekiya stickers?! I was super sad I missed out on her exhibition, but those stickers are the cutest ever so I had to buy one of each set. They're glittery and slightly 3D too *heart eyes emoji*

All 3 parts of my Tokyo vlog are now live on my YouTube channel! But I just remembered I have a ton of photos as well, so perhaps a Tokyo photo post will be coming up next? And an outfit post for SURE. It's been wayyy too long, cos editing those vlogs has been so fun but super time consuming. As usual I hope you guys are doing great and I'll talk to you soon :-)
